Thank you for your photos and question, The photo show that the breast are Asymmetry how ever at the stage it is to early to tell weather your breast have settled or still healing normally it will take 3 to 6 months for complete healing.
Thank you for your question and photos. It appears that you likely had differences in breast shape/size before surgery. It would be helpful to see pre op photos for comparison.
It is not unusual for breasts implants to settle and soften at slightly different rates, especially if one was smaller than the other beforehand. It will take between 2-6 months for the breasts to settle and soften. I recommend that you re-evaluate at 6 months post op. Share your concerns with your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best
Without examining you in-person and not having seen you pre-operatively, it is difficult to say whether your healing is normal or if you are experiencing an early onset capsular contracture.
In general, implants can take up to 3-6 months to settle.
Please follow up with your plastic surgeon to be evaluated.

Right now, you are very early on in the post op recovery period. It will take 3-6 months for you to feel comfortable having implants in your body and for them to settle. This time allows for you to physically and psychologically adapt to your new body image. There are many variables that contribute to a breast augmentation's final result. Preop size and shape, IMF location, location of the implants and type of implant. Patients heal at different rates and each breast will sometimes heal at a different rate. Rest, relax, recover and heal. Please Express your concerns to your surgeon so he/she can examine you. Then reassess final result at 6 months.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
