Good candidate for capsulorraphy?
Generally, the lateral breast implant displacement can be corrected using an internal suture technique, decreasing the size of the pockets and moving the implants toward the midline. In my practice, I use a 2 layered suture technique (capsulorraphy) to close off the space laterally (towards the axilla). The use of acellular dermal matrix is an option ( although not usually necessary) especially if significant implant rippling/palpability is present. I hope this (and the attached link) helps.

That is a hard question to answer without actually examining the breast. I do think it's fairly early though to think about doing a capsulorrhaphy. Are you vigorously trying to massage or displace the implants as part of your post-operative regimen? If you are, I would consider not doing that and consider wearing a bra as much as you can and hope that some capsule will form and limit the displacement of the implants
