Pre op vs post op?
Well, in all fairness, u have to show a preop to put this in perspective. Also, your left hand is elevated (holding the camera I presume) and might change the look as well. Perfect symmetry is usually not present (before or after) and perhaps your expectation was different from what is achievable. I think things look reasonable and like the others have commented, some healing has to occur which may make things less noticeable to you. Above all, discuss your concerns with your surgeon. They know you and what they did best. Good luck !

Some asymmetry after surgery is not uncommon and may have been there before but you are very early in the post operative period, just 8 days it seems. Often times if an implant is placed submuscularly and an implant is lower on one side it may be because the person is right hand or left hand dominant and the implant is being pushed by constant use of that one arm. Check with your board certified plastic surgeon and see what they think of the asymmetry. Sometimes a bandeau can help push the side that is riding too high. Best of luck, MMT
