Am I Lopsided After Capsulectomy and Implant Exchange to Silicone or Just Swollen?

I just had capsule removed on both sides and implant exchange to 550cc hp silicone, and now my left looks so much bigger than the right. Or is just swollen and will look even later. Btw it was my left that had more scar tissue. I used to have 400cc saline but theey were even before. I started out a 34A.

If you started out the same size and your implants are the same, then you should ultimately stay the same size. Uneven results now is likely the result of swelling, but you should follow-up with your surgeon and discuss your concerns.

I agree with the other surgeon's who state that without examining you (or at least seeing photos), it's hard to say what is going on.  If you can post some photos, we can see if we can help.  I would also recommend that you communicate clearly with your surgeon and see how they can help you through the recovery process.

Without examination of you or some photos it is hard to help. Sorry for your obvious concerns. Patience is the rule. Best to call your surgeon's office and express your concerns. Good luck

it's difficult to assess what's going on with you without before and after photos

Without photos I have no idea what your issues may be and could not possibly suggest anything without them or an exam.
