Nipples too high? (Photos)

I had a slight tuberous breast deformity and decided after I was done with babies to have them fixed. In 2011 I had a lift with implants. I had smooth round gel moderate profile. 250 and 300. This time I went with Mentor contour (gummy bear) gels 340 and 390. I'm so in love with them but worried they'll drop more and my nipples will raise more? I've heard the anatomical implants don't drop as much. I'm 5 ft 110 lbs.

Nipples too high?

The short answer is that your nipples look very well positioned.  The long answer is that you look great for just one week after surgery and you should stop fretting about what could happen but likely will not.  Make sure you keep all of your follow-up appointments with your surgeon!

If your contoured implants heal

as designed, you will minimal movement of your breast tissue over your implant.  Your early results look great.  Follow your surgeon's instructions and contact him/her if you should develop any questions or concerns.

It appears you had an excellent surgery for a very complex problem.I wouldn't worry about a complication happening until it actually does-- life is too short to worry unnecessarily!
