The left nipple was placed in the wrong location.

What are the options for correcting this situation?

Thank you

Everybody has some asymmetry of the breasts and there is always going to be some asymmetry postop. Problem now is how out of place is it? One can not evaluate you without an exam and comparing your pre and postop pictures as well as your operation report. There may be a correction or may not and it could be simple or complicated.

Thanks for your question. Really hard to say without seeing pictures. But there may or may not be an option to correct.
