Nipple Position Asymmetry after Breast Lifts
Between preoperative markings, intraoperative assessments, reassessments, adjustments and often readjustments, I spend a lot of time trying to make breasts and nipple/areola positioning as symmetric as possible. Most patients start off with some differences between their two breasts. Whereas it is not possible to make one breast necessarily the mirror image of the other, we can often get them very close. Seeing as you are still relatively fresh out of surgery, I would wait - your breasts are still in flux from a healing and appearance standpoint. If you reach about six months out from surgery and you have marked differences between the two breasts, you may need a minor revision under local anesthesia.
Postop period for breast lift
If the nipples are still uneven in shape or height, this can usually be adjusted at the 6 to 9 month mark. This can likely be performed under local anaesthetic.
