Pain post-op

The feelings that you are experiencing are not uncommon after breast augmentation. It is normal to feel one side bigger, higher than the other side. I would not be concerned unless it continues to get bigger or more painful.

Asymmetric healing after breast augmentation is common.

The fact that one side hurts more than the other after breast augmentation is fairly common.

Pain 5 days post op

Your breasts will heal at different rates.  The situation you describe sounds to be that of typical healing, however you should check with your surgeon just to be sure.

5 Days postop

It is not uncommon to experience soreness in one breast more than the other.  You are only 5 days after surgery, so you likely have postoperative swelling which is normal. To be safe, please see your plastic surgeon for a checkup.

You need an examination

I do not think there is anything wrong, but I certainly can not give you an accurate recommendation. You need to call you plastic surgeon and have him examine you in person.
