Follow-Up/Addition to previous post/question. - Breast Augmentation Dissatisfaction.
Your implant pocket may be too large and/or you may require a breast lift to address excess skin. Stretch marks cannot be treated surgically unless the affected skin is actually excised. They cannot be prevented or predicted,.
I recommend that you speak with your Plastic Surgeon in person and plan for revision with a physical exam and discussion of goals.
All the best

Overall you have a pretty good result and of course one could always revise / improve things but you must realise that things will continue to age - both the breasts and the implants. You must also realise that you may never be able to 100% get what you want in the long term as you cannot hold the same result for ever.
Yes you could raise the fold - excise the infirmary skin and create an internal hammock to try and raise the footplate of the breast - with a capsulotomy / capsulorraphy you could raise the implants and you could also consider a larger implant. You could also elevate the nipple height. All of this would require a complete revision - opening all the previous scars and creating new ones.
In deciding whether this is for you - you need to consider what you have already and the pros and cons of a revision. At the moment I would question whether now is the right time to consider a revision as the result is pretty good.
I would see your PS again and I would get a second opinion with a face to face consult with an experienced surgeon who can run through the pros and cons.
