Implant capsule contracture
Implant malposition vs capsular contracture
So soon after the initial surgery and with an implant that appears too high on the left I would suggest the most likely cause is an under dissected pocket. If this is the case a surgical revision will be likely and is something that needs to be reviewed by your treating surgeonJeremy Hunt

I very much doubt this will correct itself, I would recommend chatting with your surgeon and asking him/her to give you a timeline to correct it.
I hope this helps and good luck.

BA with implant malposition
So as you are just 13 weeks out, it is possible to have early cap con, more likely and based upon story you have implant malposition, those implants are likely to big for your base width and the pockets were not dissected to accommodate such a large high profile implant. You will need a revision at this point. Going back to your surgeon is a good place to start, but you will likely need to find a different surgeon to perform the revision if this is how you ended up after your first surgery.
