I am currently about 3 months post op from a BA and wondering if this is normal

On my right side it appears you can see my implant and there is quite a distinct line, I also feel that one breast Is significantly smaller than the other, which was the case pre op, could you please tell me if this is normal or should I be concerned? I know my boobs weren't very symmetrical to start with but I would have expected they look different to this , saying I "shouldn't" need 2 different size Implants? I'm also really dissatisfied with the size as I wanted bigger.

    Sorry to hear you are concerned with the results of your recent breast augmentation. Your right breast displays a 'double bubble’. This has occured because the right breast was not suitable for the size of implant you have had inserted. At this early post operative stage it's important to wait and see. If it does not resolve, you may need revision surgery with repair of the crease of both breasts and likely change for smaller implants. As for asymmetry, if it's present prior to surgery it will exist after surgery unless it's formally addressed with either a lift or different sized implants. As for your implant size and expectations, this should have been clarified prior to surgery but in my opinion, smaller, not larger implants combined with a minor peri-areolar left lift would have been the preferred option.
