Nipples Too Low After Breast Augmentation With Breast Lift?
You are only ONE WEEK post op. You have MONTHS of healing ahead of you. Your only concerns right now should be meticulous hygiene, avoiding infection, scar treatment, and following your surgeon's directions. Your breasts look as they should one week out from surgery. The breasts are sisters, not twins. Some asymmetry should be expected even after everything has settled, especially as you had asymmetry prior to your surgery. Right now it appears as if you have the expected amount of swelling which precludes seeing your final result. Your final result won't occur for months down the road when your swelling has resolved and the implants have settled. As for your areolas and nipples being too low, it is too early too critique. As your implants shift down and the tissue on the bottom of your breast stretches, your areolas and nipples will rotate up. If they were in the position you feel is appropriate right now, by the time everything settled, they'd be too high on your chest. Even if your areolas and nipples end up being "too low," a revision wouldn't occur for a minimum of six months after your initial surgery. Furthermore, it is far easier to correct areolas that are too low than too high. You really should convey your concerns to your plastic surgeon. I'm sure s/he would be more than happy to address your concerns.

You are too early post surgery
Breast implants plus uplift
It is very early days for you. Swelling takes time to settle and it will take about 3 to 6 months for the tissue swelling to settle reasonably. The same applies to the implants too. Your breasts will assume a more natural position with the nipples slighly higher and the breasts a bit fuller in the lower part as the months go by.

Nipple position and final aesthetic result
You are far too early to tell how things will settle. Your breasts are swollen likely contributing to the size difference. As for as nipple position, the implants should settle over time and the nipples will be in a better position. This could take 3-6 months, just depends on your body and how you heal. Don't stress, too early for that. Good luck with the rest of your recovery.
Too early to judge outcome
Breast Lift and Implants
Rest assured that things will change. It is early and settling will occur. Additionally, swelling is present and can often cause the appearance to be altered. The body doesn't know to swell evenly, and thus one side can appear as a different size. Changes will occur rapidly over the next several days and will continue for many months. Hang in there and enjoy your results.
