Potential nipple revision after breast implants plus left
I would wait until at least 3 months to evaluate nipple areola position, size and your result. If there is significant asymmetry at that point and you wish it should be corrected then discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
Concern about revision is premature!
Follow-up appointments with your surgeon can help you make the right decisions about when and what type of bra to wear, or how to aid one side in dropping a bit more than the other (if one side is a bit different from its counterpart).
I believe it is premature to even be discussing "simple" revisions of any kind, but that may have simply been an honest reply to your question about what could be done should asymmetry persist. I would not contemplate revision until at least 6 months or more has passed.
BTW, I prefer the terminology of "softening, dropping, and settling" to "drop and fluff." I don't know who first applied the term "fluff" to breast implant surgery, as it has nothing to do with Marshmallow Creme, a soft, downy mass, or forgetting one's lines in a play. Neither does it have to do with what female extras are hired to do to keep the male porn stars "ready" for their scenes. So let's just use the terms "soften, settle, and drop," OK?
Your breasts should continue to look better and better as time goes by. Continue to see your surgeon and follow her/his advice! For an example of one of my breast lift plus implant patients at 3 months post-op, click on the web reference link below. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
