What's wrong wtih your breasts
Overinflated, subglandular implants
There are many ways to do enhance breasts. In general, plastic surgeons are trying to match the volume of the breasts with the skin envelope in the most aesthetically pleasing way possible. But every surgeon and every patient have different views on aesthetics and the techniques on how to achieve certain aesthetics.
It appears that you had a nipple-areolar repositioning type of lift and could have benefitted from a fuller lift to lift both the N-A complex up further and lift the lower breast pole. You and/or your surgeon may have decided against doing this because of the additional scars.
You imply that you have overfilled saline implants on top of the muscle. Placing gel implants under the muscle generally produces more natural appearing breasts and significantly decreases (but does not eliminate) the possibility of capsular contracture occurring (which you also imply is going on in your right breast).
Please speak to your surgeon about your issues and if still not satisfied with the answers, obtain a second opinion from an ABMS board certified plastic surgeon.

Unsatisfactory Result after Breast Augmentation
I'm sorry you are not happy with your breast augmentation. Given your description and photos, there appears to be something wrong. One breast looks larger and different then the other. Your surgeon should be looking for a cause, or explain to you why this visual difference is occurring.
If you don't get what you need from him, get a few second opinions. Preoperative photos and a full exam will help the surgeon to diagnose the problem. I recommend only ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeons that specialize in revision breast surgery.
Best of luck!
