Worried that I will may has assymerical breasts after surgery

Hi there, I am scheduled to have surgery this thursday. During my preop consultation, the nurse took me in to have vetra imaging done. I have decided to go with 390cc hp below muscle. Attached is a front view image of my before and after picture with 390cc implants. I am worried that I may have assymetical breasts after surgery. I can see a noticeable difference in fullness between my breasts and my crease fold is lower on my left breast compared to my right. I prefer the look of my left breast as well. The nurse never noticed it during consult and I only just noticed it recently. I phoned the office and another nurse had a look at it and doesn't believe there will be a problem. My questions are, how accurate are vetra images? Is it worth being worried about? Should I raise my concerns with my surgeon on the day of surgery? And are there any techniques that can fix the assymetry?

    Thanks for posting your questions and photographs.  In my practice, I use a sizing system that allows you to “try your implant” in front of a mirror to se what size you are most comfortable with.  I find this better than digital imaging which can a little misleading. The first thing to note is that if you have asymmetry prior to breast augmentation then you will have asymmetry after breast augmentation unless it is specifically addressed with different sized implants or other surgical approaches. You actually look reasonably symmetrical on your photographs so you shouldn’t worry about noticeable asymmetry.    You should speak with your plastic surgeon and not a nurse before you go ahead with surgery on Thursday to discuss your concerns.
