Why Have My Breast Implants Have Never Dropped (375 Right 350 Left)?

It has been 16 months. I have considered mastopexy and/or the new 5th generation implants in tear drop form. Maybe going up two sizes. I would like to be a bit larger but my main issue is the implants riding high and giving my breasts a "snoopy nose" appearance. I feel that i need a revision. I should mention that i had a nipple reduction. My PS is recommending the new tear drop implant. A second opinion recommended staying with the current implants and getting the mastopexy.

Breast Implant exchange and Breast Lift is definately and option

From your photos it appears that your implants may be too high and that a revision is indicated. Sometimes, just a capsular release and implant exchange may work, other times a breast lift is indicated. If your implants are soft, you do not have a capsular contracture and it is just a high placement, if they are firm, then you need capsular work performed as well. You may do well with a small, circumareolar lift and an upsize. Not sure about using the new teardrop implants if you want to go a little bigger. They will give you a more natural look at times, but sacrifice some size.
