2 weeks post op & wishing they were larger !

Scars @ 3 weeks post op
Saw my surgeon today for my 3 week post-op visit & he removed the steri-strips. Here are pics of the scars at 3 weeks post-op. Dr said it's totally normal for them to look a bit funky right now... A little moisturizer/vitamin e oil and within a few months they should be less pronounced and a lot lighter in color.
4 weeks post op
I'll be 4 weeks post op in 2 days so I figured I should post more recovery progress pics. Though I think the surgery was "worth it", I'm still disappointed with the size... Wish they were larger!! My right breast also seems to be a bit smaller than my left... My DR observed the slight size difference at my consultation appointment, so I guess I'm confused as to why the same size implants for both breasts?? Any thoughts? I've also noticed I've been breaking out a bit on my breasts (As a runner, I'm used to an occasional pimple or two caused from sweat/sports bras, but currently I have yet to see smooth, pimple free boobs!) ?!
Capsular contracture & animation deformity at 8 weeks post-op??

I'm afraid I may have capsular contracture and animation deformity on my right breast. I'm 8 weeks post-op today... Anyone else experience similar issues? My breast looks deformed!! The implant is still riding high and the bottom of the breast feels numb and extra soft (not full like the other breast). The shape also looks cone-like and the nipple is pointing more downward than the other. I saw you surgeon at 7 weeks post op and he recommended wearing my sports bra above the implants (similar to what a compression band does) & to increase the downward massage... Still doesnt look to be showing much (if any?) improvement.

Animation deformity and possible capsular contracture?? What do you think?
Revision surgery scheduled

Now that I'm 6+ months post initial breast augmentation, my dr has agreed to my revision surgery for capsular contracture. With the Natrelle warranty for severe contracture, I'm also able to replace both implants. This has been a roller coaster ride of emotions & I'm really hoping that this next surgery will result in my desired results. I never would've imagined capsular contracture as part of my augmentation journey... Not only have I had physical pain in my breast (feels like a hard golf ball is in my breast), but obviously my physical appearance/breast deformity has brought on insecurities (everything from being intimate with my husband, to even the clothing I can & can't wear without it being obvious that I have an issue with my breast). I'm also wondering if perhaps my silicone implant ruptured ? I remember hearing/feeling a popping sensation early on but apparently that is somewhat normal & the result of air bubbles in the breast pocket?? I guess I'll know for certain soon enough. Surgery is scheduled for mid July...
Revision surgery complete
Due to baker grade 3/4 capsulary contracture, I recently had a capsulectomy with implant replacement (I opted for a bit of a larger size). I'm now 12 days post-op.
