I have to say that you are still early on healing process, it is too soon to determine how your results are going to be, per now, they look very nice and beautiful, you can have one bigger than the other, it is normal and that can happen for the first 3 months until your implants have settle in. I recommend you to wait and keep using your post surgical bra, that will help you with the shape and support. Hugs!
Droop after breast lift?

Your breasts certainly look "full," but perky is not in your cards with this anatomy, which required a full Wise mastopexy, especially with the size of your breasts/implants.
You likely liked the idea of lower cost and less scars (Who wouldn't?), but some patients need to be told that a small or minimal-scar lift will not be "enough."
I hesitate to say this without more information, but it appears as if this was a poor choice, either on your part or your surgeon's (probably both), and revision will be necessary to achieve closer to your goals. "Perky" is not how I would describe breasts of your size, unless you develop capsular contracture, or desired the high, round, "fake" look that accompanies CC.
Even with a full Wise (anchor) breast lift, full larger breasts will drop and re-sag over time, especially if your capsules are soft and your breast implants have room to move around a bit. You are indeed right that your left breast (and your right) will definitely NOT bring itself up again. Talk with your surgeon or get a second opinion from one of several ABPS-certified plastic surgeons other than your own. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
