Surgeon won't address post op concerns or consider revision until 1 year. Can I go forward with another doctor? (Photo)

Unhappy about BA results
Thank you for the question and your photographs. The result which you have got is actually very reasonable. The muscle can be tight on occasion and anatomy will vary. Also sub muscle placement of implant will invariably compromise the cleavage line as the muscle will tend to push the implants outwards.My feeling is that leave matters alone and 'wait and watch' policy is adequate. You should find improvements in due course and totally avoid surgery.
When to consider revision?
Concerns after breast augmentation surgery...
Generally speaking, a patient's specific anatomy ( for example, relatively wide space between the breasts) may limit how close the medial breast folds ( cleavage) will be after breast augmentation surgery. Also, a patient's nipple/areola complex position must also be taken into account; keep in mind that the breast implants must be centered appropriately under each nipple/areola complex. Otherwise, the nipple/areola complexes will seem off-center on each breast mound.
Some of your other concerns such as "the top looks looks funny" and "they just don't fit my frame well" are harder to understand and would require clarification. I think that this clarification is best done in front of a full-length mirror. Use as many visual aids (again photographs) demonstrating what you wish your breasts look like.
I am sure that your plastic surgeon wants you to be pleased with the outcome of surgery; I would suggest that you continue your efforts in communication in a calm/non-confrontational fashion. Although it may be difficult, you and every patient undergoing breast augmentation should keep the concept of realistic expectations in mind. Also, keep in mind that ongoing time may allow you to physically and "body image" wise adjust to the new look or to clearly delineate what you wish to have adjusted with any potential revisionary surgery.
I hope this helps.
