When to consider revision for implants too close together
It appears that the diameter of the implants you have is maximal for the width of your breasts, so moving them to the sides would create a different problem. Your options would have to include smaller diameter implants. You do not appear to have symmastia so I think it is best to accept your very nice results.
Wondering whether to have revisionary surgery
Thank you for your question and photo. From what I can see, you have implants that are close together but the skin on the sternum still looks intact, so you don't appear to have a symmastia (uniboob). You may consider opening the pockets on the sides to allow the implants to move outward, but you may need to consider slightly smaller implants with less diameter, or switch to a higher projection implant with a smaller diameter but similar volume. Otherwise you have a nice result and may consider not doing anything. Good luck.

Your concerns are understandable. The photographs demonstrate that your breast implants that are close to one another.
Given your concerns, revisionary breast surgery will be helpful when it comes to improving your breast implants' position. In my practice, I have had the most success with these types of revisionary operations utilizing capsulorraphy techniques along with the use of acellular dermal matrix (to support the attenuated tissues along the medial/cleavage breast borders).
