Concerned About Nipple Asymmetry 5 Months Post Op
Your nipples appear to be even. Perhaps, you are concerned about the #shape of your implants as you heal. If you are concerned or unhappy with your results, it is best to consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon and discuss it in more detail.
Breast revision surgery is performed for a number of reasons and factors related to the patient’s initial breast surgery. One reason is asymmetry. However, there's no guarantee the #asymmetry will simply be resolved with one breast revision. There are various reasons breasts can appear uneven or asymmetrical; which have to be taken into account when your surgeon determines the appropriate approach and technique for your #revision surgery.
Typically, it's best to wait 6 to 12 months depending on the reason for #revision. Matters such as sagging or drooping and size change will not improve with time. It's best to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is specialized in cosmetic breast surgery. Such is most suitable to perform your breast #augmentation. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire.

5 months post op breast augmentation and nipples not centered
Your results look good! You did not post pre-op photos, but if you have any, have you compared them? A breast augmentation is pretty much what you started off with only larger. So, if your nipples started off slightly asymmetric, then when you get implants it may become magnified as your breast mound is larger. Perhaps go see your surgeon for a follow up visit and ask to see your pre-op photos so you can compare with your surgeon. If that wasn't the case, then you can go over options at that time. Massage never hurts. ac

Your results look acceptable. You need to post pre-op pics to determine if a perfectly centred implant was ever a possibility. Your results are quite acceptable. If you're not happy, see your PS.
