Too small implants

I have had surgery three months ago and feel I should have gone a bit bigger. Should I now go for second opp because I am not happy. They look gorgeous, just not as big as I wanted. I got 345gr and I am now looking at 400gr?

40 cc overfill might make them a bit firm. I have 240 filled to 300 on the right side because I was so uneven that it was all they could do to make me even. That's 20 cc more overfill than you so it's probably way more exaggerated, but that one side will always be firmer. It's a couple years now and less noticeable but it took a really long time. For about a year, it felt like a rock. My left side has no overfill and it's always looked and felt More natural. I wish they just used a bigger implant instead of trying to inflate the small side to match.

I feel the same as you my implants are 590cc and they are def too small for my frame. I only had mine for 5 months and I dislike the size very much. I've booked another sugery next month in march to increase the size.

I kept getting bigger for well past a year. Unless you want a significant change, I'd wait.

Thanks Lani. I'm happy you finally got what you wanted. In my case, I'd like to add that my initial reaction to "too small" turned out to be wrong. A month out and I'm no longer too small. The smashed up look improved after some settling and I'm happy now.

Hello Belle22! I am interested in your story because I am three weeks post op and I am truly unhappy with my results. Can I ask you what size you have and in what way the smashed up look improved? Thank you so much

Ladies,
I went back to my surgeon and told him that I'm not happy. He gave me a very good rate and I had another opp (had to wait for three months to pass before he did the opp). I am happy now.
Go talk to the surgeon - they do understand and help.
Good luck!

I had BA on 3/31 and I am unhappy with the results. I think that the implants are too small. I showed my DR pictures and discussed cup size before the surgery. He selected 250 and 275cc silicone implants. My results are not comparable to the pictures[playmate Jayde Nicole for reference] I brought to the look of the sizers I tried. I am wondering what my next step is. I would like to have a revision surgery because I am truly unhappy with the results but I know it has not been very long since my initial surgery.

Hello 8870anon! I am three weeks post-op and I have exactly the same problem that you had. My PS selected 250 cc Mod + becaause of my small frame and skin and I am crying at this moment because they look so small... Why did your surgeon choose those sizes? What was your next step? Did you have a revision surgery? Thank you!

I just had my surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago. I woke up and looked, too small. My doctor game me 400 and I told him I wanted atleast 475. Love my doctor but he said a bigger implant "wouldn't fit". Which I don't understand since I am not a small girl. I have expressed my unhappiness to him but he thinks they are plenty big and I'm crazy. He is such a good doctor and did an awesome tummy tuck but I feel like I paid to have this done and I should behappy. Does the plastic surgeon have to re-do them or am I pretty much screwed? What happened with you..

I am getting mine done next week. I'm almost same height and weight as you. The doctor is giving me 460 implants filled to 500cc also. Do you feel this was a good idea? Do you have much rippling? Thanks so much :)
