It looks like in the photos that your pocket may be too big and a lateral pocket repair might be necessary.
A capsulorrhaphy or tightening of the implant cavity laterally can help push the implant in and give you more symmetry. You may also benefit from a slightly wider implant so the nipple does not look like its too lateral. Best wishes, Dr. T.
Breast implant displacement concerns…
I am sorry to hear about the complications you have experienced. you demonstrate your concerns nicely on the posted photographs. Based on your current description and photos, it sounds like you are dealing with a breast implant placement problem; these types of implant displacement concerns are best addressed through revisionary surgery including capsulorraphy. You may find the attached link helpful to you as you learn more about this type of corrective surgery. Best wishes.
