should I get this breast revised?

I'm 6mths po and my right breast has never been the same as the left. It's always been fuller up top and my nipples seem to point in different directions. I'm meeting the surgeon in 2 weeks to decide whether it should be revised. He thought capsular contracture could be the reason and agrees it doesn't look "happy". I'm wondering - should I bother? While they're not perfect, mostly I'm not bothered and I don't really want to start all over with recovery. What are the chances he can fix it perfectly? I did have some asymmetry to begin with.

    Firstly some important points to remember - no breast surgery will ever result in “perfect” breasts.  Breasts are sisters not twins which means differences between the two breasts are usually normal.  It would have been helpful to see your before photos - was your right breast fuller before surgery?  What was your nipple position before surgery?  If you aren’t really bothered then its probably not worth revision surgery at this stage.  If you have capsular contracture however then revision surgery may be an option.
