Are my implants a little bit low?
Yes I do think you may have a problem with medial implant malposition.
It is likely that revision surgery will be necessary to improve the situation.
I would suggest repair of the breast capsule with permanent internal sutures (capsulorrhaphy) for correction of the displacement. This involves removal of a segment of breast implant capsule among the inferior/lower aspect of the breast implant pocket. The 2 edges of capsule tissue are sutured to one another with permanent suture. This procedure will improve the symmetry of the breasts and the positioning of the nipple–areola on the breast mound. Sometimes, the use of an additional layer of dermis (acellular dermal matrix) may be helpful as well.
Make sure you are working with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who can demonstrate lots of experience helping patients with this type of revisionary breast surgery. You may find the attached link helpful to you as you learn more. Best wishes.
