Asymmetry in Torso
I see the difference in contour in your waist area. It is subtle, but may just be a difference in subcutaneous thickness (the fatty layer). If so, it could possibly be evened out with liposuction alone. Discuss with your surgeon. Other than that minor thing, you look great overall!
Best of luck!
Surgery will be needed

I recommend discussing your concerns with your surgeon and attempt to working with him.
Most surgeons prefer to wait at least 6 months prior making any judgement or decision in terms of revision surgery, if warranted.
Overall nice resut
You have an overall nice result, and your scar is low. The human body is never perfectly symmetric, although we attempt to improve the symmetry with plastic surgery. You have a nice contour of the your hips and waist. There is slight asymmetry of your waist which could be corrected with a small amount of liposuction. Your lower abdominal scar has some irregularities, and while it might seem simple to revise this, and by taking away more skin this leads to additional tension which potentially could widen the scar. For this reason, I would wait a year from surgery to allow further healing before contemplating revising the scar. As you can see, most before and after tummy tuck photos don't show the scar, as scars tend to frequently either widen or heal asymmetrically despite the fact that we measure and attempt to make the initial incisions and resection perfectly symmetric.
