6 days post-op; do you think I should be concerned or do you think they will even out?
6 days post BA
Thanks for your question and pic. It's too early to make any decisions as breasts will change in shape and size over a 3-6 month period. We don't have your before photos but every woman is asymmetric to some extend. Please discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon and give it some time. Best of luck.

Early concerns over differences between breasts
6 days post operation is too early to come to a conclusion about the surgical results. Please do not be discouraged and know that you are not alone in feeling concerned. Large number of women experience differences in their breasts right after surgery and feel awful. After waiting for a few months, they finally get the results they were hoping for.
So I would like you to know that it is not uncommon for breasts to heal and adapt to implants at different rates. Also know that any asymmetry that existed in breasts before surgery will continue to exist as breast augmentation only works to increase size of the breasts, and it does not fix asymmetry.
Now, if your breasts were different in size to begin with, and your plastic surgeon did not use different sized-implants, then you may address your concerns by having a clear discussion with your surgeon.
If your concerns are about implants settling down at different rates, then rest assured that the pectoralis major muscle and the surrounding tissue will get accustomed to the implant and loosen up to allow both implants to descend to the same length.
You may achieve final results in 3-6 months. If the breasts still appear different at that point in time, then you may share your concerns with your surgeon and they should be able to fix the problem.
For now, maintain strict follow-up with your surgeon and share your concerns. Their recovery instructions should take precedence over all else you read here as they are better informed about your surgical details.
Hope this helps.
