Uneven breasts after augmentation
This is absolutely normal. (In case you aren't sure after reading the first time!)
Significant asymmetry in swelling would be one breast twice the size of the other--this is a sign of bleeding, and it is accompanied by tight , shiny skin, much discomfort, and (surprisingly) little or no bruising. If your swelling reached that severity, then it is still not an emergency, but surgery is necessary to remove the blood. There is no evidence you have anything other than normal healing (and pre-operative asymmetry perhaps "magnified" slightly by the surgery) at this point in time.
Keep in touch with your surgeon and follow all instructions. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen

It is common for your breasts to be asymmetrical in the first few months after the operation, since the bruising and swelling in each breast differ in intensity. It takes around 3-6 months for you to see the final results and shape of your breasts. If concerned, ask your surgeon for further reassurance.

Drop & Fluff
Thank you for the question and photos. It takes an average of 2-6 months for the breasts to drop and fluff. You are very early post op and at this point the breasts can appear asymmetric and quite high. It will take time for them to naturally drop and even out. Minor differences you had between your breasts pre op will remain however those differences are often amplified temporarily in early recovery.
I recommend that you share any ongoing concerns with your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best
