If you are having an upcoming revisional surgery to remove
the capsule and replace the implant, I would advise waiting to see how the
areola position settles out before doing a revision of the areola position at
the same time. This gives your breast an
opportunity to recover from the capsule removal and the areola position may
settle down with time. If after 6
months to 1 year, you are still not happy with the areola position, then a
revision may be done in the office. I
would suggest that you consult in person with a board certified plastic surgeon
to discuss your options.
Thank you for the picture.
I wouldn't recommend surgery. It would not help your areola be different because you don't have any skin laxity.
I don't think it's worth the scars involved. Every woman has some asymmetry of the breasts and it is often more noticeable after implant surgery. I advise against surgery.
If it bothers you and you are already undergoing surgery then it may be worth it to have it fixed. What it really comes down to is how much it bothers you when you look at yourself in the mirror.
Areola asymmetry is a fairly simple procedure to do and can commonly be done in the office setting under local anesthesia.
Hope that helps.
Yes, assuming your plastic surgeon can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in your situation with revisionary breast surgery, I think that improving the breast/areola asymmetry will be “worth it”. Make sure that you communicate your concerns and goals with your plastic surgeon prior to proceeding. Best wishes
If the positioning bothers you, then I would think you should have it corrected at the time of your other surgery. The differences seem significant currently.
If it bothers you it would be worth doing. it is a small procedure, but will add a scar to the front of the breast. Do you make good scars? if not carefully consider...
