Since you are only a week I would be patient and give it soem more time to settle.Usually that will be 4-6 weeks.

Changes after breast augmentation.

At one week, it is far too early to judge your breast augmentation. No two breasts are the same and they will react differently to the placement of implants as they stretch and respond to the increased pressure inside. This process often takes 10-12 weeks. Time, patience, and strict adherence to your surgeon's postoperative protocols are advised.

Asymmetry after Breast Augmentation

One week after breast augmentation is too early to predict if this is going to be a long term issue.  Most patients have some degree of asymmetry this early after surgery.  The implants typically drop and settle into their pockets about 3 months after surgery.

A photo would be needed to answer your question.  In general, asymmetry is common at this early point after surgery but it is hard to be sure in your case without seeing what you are referring to.
