It would be helpful to see preop photos as well. The results shown look very natural. In general, implants magnify asymmetries.
I appreciate your concern, but your photos demonstrate a very reasonable and natural result. Continue followup with your surgeon, good luck!
Mild tuberous deformity
Overall, you have a very nice augmentation. Your areolas have a mild "tuberous" deformity which sometimes shows up after surgery because the initial post-op swelling can stretch out the thin areolar skin. It's no big deal to fix. It can be done under local anesthesia (awake). Your PS can simply remove a "doughnut" shaped piece of skin at the outer edge of your areola to tighten up that area. You will end up with a round scar all the way around the areola. (It's called a "peri-areolar mastopexy".)
