It difficult to see the asymmetries
Breast Asymmetry after Breast Augmentation
Thanks for your question and photo. Based on your photo, asymmetries existed before. Implants do not usually fix asymmetries with breast unless the difference is just volume. It seems that you needed a lift to make your breast move even, but that means more scars and costs. I am not sure that just changing implants sizes would fix your issues. I would recommend an in person exam with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good Luck.
All the best,

Your nipple position is most noticeably asymmetric. Using different sized implants would not have helped that. Please visit a few ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeons expert in revision breast surgery.
Best of luck!

I would not recommend doing anything, but if you do, it will not be an implant revision, but rather something else, and yes you will be expected to pay for it.
In the case of breast implants, sometimes the difference in shape or nipple position can become exaggerated after implants.
You should communicate your concerns with your ps. We are not perfect and sometimes surgery needs to be adjusted.
Your photo shows a degree of ptosis or sagging. A breast lift may be something you should consider as well.
As always, if it's best to be healthy, no smoking, and to make sure any health concerns are managed by your primary care physician.
Best to you.
