Lateral implants after breast augmentation
If you are happy with your result, I would be inclined to leave well enough alone.
Changing implant pockets and implants will be costly. Many women have revision surgery and find it was better before.
A peri-areolar mastopexy will make the nipples more symmetric. I doubt it will make a significant difference in position. Best wishes.

Lateral nipple correction
Laterally placed nipples pre-op will look even more lateral post-augmentation. If you are happy with the size and shape of your breasts a peri-areolar mastopexy will centralise the nipple over the implant giving your breasts better cosmetic harmony.
All the best,

If you have nipples that are set laterally on your chest prior to surgery they will continue in that position following augmentation and perhaps appear even more so. However, your photos do not seem to imply an abnormal position. Trying to move the nipples with an excision of skin around the nipples or with suturing of the capsule are unlikely to make a significant difference. It's best to speak with your surgeon about your options and understand that surgery can also make the situation worse if complications arise.
To best help you, a physical examination or picture evaluation is required in order to determine which procedures and techniques would be best for your case.
It is true that implants can accentuate nipple positions that are other than on the center of the breast. Sometimes a modest amount of movement can be done with a circumareolar mastopexy, moving the areola toward the center rather than higher, the more usually done repositioning. However, the incision and subsequent scar may not be worth it all.
Discuss with your surgeon. All the best.

Correction of laterally displaced nipples after breast augmentation
In my experience the only way to correct this is surgical. If a capsulorrhaphy or closing of the medial pocket near the center of the chest is done the implant can be displaced laterally to the side and this will center the laterally displaced nipple more on the implant. However this is a surgical procedure which you most likely do not want and furthermore it may widen the inter-breast distance or the space in your cleavage. the cleavage.
