Thanks for your question and photos. It is really hard to say what exactly needs to be done without a physical exam. It is certainly correctable with a good outcome but you will need to see a plastic surgeon that specializes in breast revision surgery. Based on your photos is appears that your muscle has been released to high and if you had symmastia or where one breast touches the other side, then you may need a complete reconstruction of your muscle, sternum, and implant. I would likely recommend dermal material to act as an internal bra. Fat transfer improves the animation deformity but it does not correct it. For it to be gone for sure the implant needs to be over the muscle! Good Luck!
All the best,
