3 weeks post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about final results.
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

Correction of tubular or constricted breast demands adequate release of the base of the breast.

Asymmetry 3 weeks out
Thank you for your question. It's still too early to make a judgement on your result at 3 weeks post op. Wait at least 3 months before getting a better idea. Implants tend to settle down into position and swelling subsides. At that point, you can discuss your options with your surgeon, including revision. Stay in touch with your surgeon regarding your concerns and postoperative instructions. Good luck.
You are still quite early in the recovery period and it is hard to say how things will settle. Some surgeons will wait 6 months or even a year before considering revision procedures. Sometimes surgeons use different implants on each breast because they have different anatomy preoperatively. Different surgeons have different threshholds for revision, which is why it is important to find a plastic surgeon who you feel listens to you and understands what you are trying to achieve. Best of luck, MMT
Review Your Preop Pictures and Wait
Achieving symmetrical results after surgery is an important part of the operation, and you are understandably upset. There is good news in that asymmetry immediately after breast augmentation usually evens out over time. When both breasts aren't exactly the same before surgery, they may have different things done to them during surgery, and they subsequently heal differently and at different paces. The good news is that it is much too early to assess the final results. Even if you're breasts aren't exactly symmetrical after everything is healed and settled (and they never end up EXACTLY symmetrical), the degree of asymmetry may be small enough that you either don't notice it or it doesn't bother you.
If you are otherwise happy with the results, and the asymmetry is the only thing bothering you, then be confident that things will improve over time and you will be happy with the final result. If not, your plastic surgeon will want to work through it with you and makes things better if possible.
