Unhappy with Scar and Nipple Sensation Loss After BA: Will a Revision Help? (Photo)

Scar revision will help here, and can be done under local anesthesia by many surgeons.
Scar revision in a situation like yours is pretty easy, and many surgeons can do such a revision under local anesthesia. That intervention will also help improve shape, however, even with scar correction, you are still going to have a tendency to future sag of the tissues, as that is their nature. Nipple sensation may eventually return, but is at greater jeopardy if there is wide undermining of the tissues during the lift. I hope that this helps.

Nipple sensation and results
Post-operative cleavage will depend on your pre-surgery cleavage. You have wide-set breasts, which means you'll probably continue to have wide-set breasts after surgery. However, while you may have a bit of improvement, it may not be as much as you want. Your surgeon can only do so much to give you cleavage before it looks abnormal, since the implants have to remain centred underneath your nipples.
