Breast lift not given results I wanted/expected? (Photos)

I had a breast lift 15 wks ago & I'm unhappy with results. My left nipple feels to far towards armpit. My nipples seem like theyve been stretched especially left 1which rarely shrinks. My right breast dips at the top, the scar is very thick & can b painful. I've lost feeling in my left nipple but my right nipple is extra sensitive. I haven't lost any size & think I want a small implant to give some upper volume. My surgeon says he won't do a revision for 6 months. Is this normal practice?

Breast lift not given results I wanted/expected?

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but  also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast tissue..
