5 weeks post op L Breast very high nipple seems to be moving since surgery. Additional Surgery Needed? (Photo)

Had 450 and 500 textured silicone unders. Now matching 600 smooth silicon unders. L breast high right out of surgery, but nipples on both breasts were centered. L nipple; breast never have been even with R breast and L nipple seems to be shifting even though L breast is not "dropping". R breast has "dropped". Note that right breast is close to center and left breast pushed into armpit. L nipple still coned up/puckered and L breast has small bright red capillaries all over lower half.

It's still very early to judge the result. After revision surgery usually 3-6 months before determining your final outcome. Staying close contact with your surgeon and express your concerns.

Early post operative

You are still at your early postoperative phase after breast lift surgery.  I would wait 3-6 months before you make any judgment.  I bet you will even out over time.Best Wishes,Nana Mizuguchi, MD
