Pectus Excavatum.. Implants??

I'm an 18 year old college student, during my sophomore year of high school i had the NUSS procedure. I had many complications with the surgery because my pectus was so severe. I had the bar taken out, and resumed my sport activites. Im now irritated because my chest has sunken back in. Although its not as bad as it used to be, I wish it could be better. I've also noticed that one breast is quite larger than the other. I was wondering if anyone knew if breast implants could at least fix the appearence of my breast & chest, and if insurance covers this procedure in anyway? please help me out!
