Sientra Implants and adherence.
You are correct that the asymmetry that you are seeing may be related to your pre-op anatomy and pre-op asymmetry. Asymmetry is really normal as we all are asymmetrical. Having said that, perhaps the right implant can be encouraged to settle a bit more with aggressive massage. You are early in the postoperative period and things tend to improve with time. Discuss this with your surgeon.
Sentra implants really don't adhere. I have had the occasion to re-operate on several Sientra patients, and adherence is something that I have never seen. Despite the lack of adherence, the implants tend to stay in place better than smooth implants because of a higher friction coefficient with the texturing.
