The situation you describe is not uncommon. Usually, nipples are not exactly in the center of the breast, they are laterally displaced, and this is normal. This lateral appearance can be accentuated by the augmentation because the medial skin is stretched, and the distance of the curve is greater than that of a straight line. Many surgeons place the implants close to the center to increase cleavage and decrease the chance of lateral fallout. All of this makes slightly off center nipples look more lateral postop. Sometimes the lift can also cause this look.
If this still bothers you after you have healed, you can talk to your surgeon about other options.
