Since you seem to be dead set against a breast lift, schedule an appointment with your surgeon to discuss a revision of the pocket. Although keep in mind that it may not deliver the results that you desire.

A revision of the pocket on both sides can help center the implants around your current nipple position. The other option is a lift on both sides but you seem not to want the scars so I would go with the first option.
It looks like your breast is encapsulated and your natural breast tissue may be falling down over the encapsulated breast.This is not unusual and is easy to correct.
Go on consultations for your revision surgery
Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try and help you.
You should go see some plastic surgeons and pay for their recommendations.
Online consultants are not the appropriate source of information for you; your
plastic surgeon should be your resource when it comes to these types of complex
situations. Your anatomy, previous breast history, surgeries, genetics,
examination and wishes all play major roles in how to manage this type of

This is a common story.
I believe an open capsulotomy and placement of larger implants would help you if you don't mind a larger breast.
You might also consider a crescent mastopexy to enhance the aesthetics of the result.

Left breast? Cap contracture or just saggy? (photos)
Always best to see boarded private practice PS in person. My over the internet guess is larger implant with possible donut lift.. But a full lift could offer a better result maybe?
I believe that you meant 13 years not 13 hours ago. If so, your left implant can probably be lowered to get it more directly behind the nipple without a lift scar. However you will still have the asymmetry of one breast and nipple slightly lower than the other. It sounds like you would accept that over the lift scar. 500 cc would make both breasts larger but you would still have some asymmetry. Discuss in person with your surgeon. Good luck.
you for the question. You are still in
the post operation recovery stage. It is
not uncommon to asymmetries during this
period. It usually takes about 8-12
weeks for the wounds to heal and around 4-6 months for the implants to fully
settle. Capsular contracture can have symptoms of hardening and pain when touching it. It would always be best to visit
your board-certified plastic surgeon and get a full assessment for your
concerns. Best of luck. Dr. Michael
