Thank you for your inquiry. It is difficult to give you a recommendation without viewing pre-operative and current photos or reviewing your medical / surgical history. Please add to or create another post with this information if possible.

It is possible that a larger implant may eliminate the flat spot around your nipple but you may need additional tissue to make that area more natural looking. Fat grafting is a possibility although radiation sometimes causes this to dissolve away with time. Then it may be repeated. Good luck and take care.
