Breast lift and implants - why are nipples asymmetric
- Here are possible explanations -
- One implant is sitting much higher than the other - when it moves down into position, the nipple position may equalize.
- Your breast creases are at different levels and the normal position for one nipple is a little different from the other. For a clue to this - look at your before photos - were the nipple positions the same or different?
- Swelling is distorting the nipple position.
- One nipple despite careful markings before surgery is a little higher than the other - if this is the reason, it can be adjusted with minor office surgery 6 - 12 months from surgery.
