There will be changes associated with further healing
The asymmetry is in part created by pocket creation. If the pocket is different from one side to the other your implants will sit asymmetrically and therefore the nipples will be in different positions with respect to the center of your implants. At one week after surgery it is obviously early and you will undoubtedly see changes as further healing progresses. It is hard to know if these changes will be sufficient to make the breasts look good enough for you. If it is not at that time you can re-visit the need for revision breast surgery. Hang in there and take periodic photos as these will help you see the changes as they are occurring.
All the best,

Asymmetry one week post op from breast implants.
Thank you for the photos. You are very early in the post operative course. Your breasts will undergo several changes throughout the process. Do tell your plastic surgeon about your concerns.
