You Have A Nice Result
You say you are so sad you can't look in the mirror, but I do not know what you are disappointed about specifically. Your breast shape looks nice, and the breasts falling to the side when you are supine is normal.
Do you want them higher and firmer? If so, I would consult with your surgeon about the lift, ask about Strattice (I also use this product in my practice with excellent results), and anticipate spending money for a new procedure. You should speak to the surgeon about the medical risks/benefits/procedure, and the office manager about the pricing.
I hope you find a solution and are satisfied! Best of luck!
Do I need a lift?
Disappointed after revision
After reviewing your previous photos and posts I would have to say that your surgeon did a tremendous job and you look wonderful! Yes you have some asymmetry, but it is markedly improved overall and much more beautiful.
- All smooth implants are going to fall some to the outside when lying down. Newsflash, all breasts without implants that have any volume will also fall to the side when laying down, especially as one ages (past your 20's and after kids it will be more obvious).
- Because you had stretched out and asymmetric skin envelopes pre-op, and then downsized your implants, there is certainly a risk of needing a lift as expressed by responding physicians to your previous posts. I am guessing that the lift at this point would be to improve the nipple position on the left. You were not charged for a lift, and didn't have one. If you want one now, of course it is reasonable to pay for it. The nicer and more reasonable you are, likely the less it will cost you, but you shouldn't expect it to be free.
