It looks like in your photos that one implant has bottomed out. Best to review with your surgeon in person.

I am sorry to hear about/see the problems you are having after breast augmentation surgery. I think your concerns are appropriate; your breast implant does seem to sit quite low on your chest wall, consistent with breast implant displacement ("bottoming out”).
Also, consistent with the breast implant positioning problem, the nipple areola complexes seem to be sitting relatively high, because the breast implants have settled too low. Furthermore, the inframammary fold scar sit too high on the breast mound secondary to the breast implants' displacement.
I think you may benefit from revisionary breast surgery which will likely involve capsulorraphy (internal suture repair). This procedure serves to reconstruct the lower poles of the breasts and prevent migration of the breast implants too far inferiorly. Associated issues with positioning of nipple/areola complexes and visibility of the inframmammary fold scars should improve with this operation.
I hope this, and the attached link, helps.
