I had a breast aug when I was 22. They were hardly a AA cup. Could I have the tissue removed and new implants?

You may find that a lift gives you great results without new implants.

You almost certainly can get smaller breasts...
That being said, if you're like most women who have had breast implants for many years (particularly those who breast fed their children), the breast skin envelope has almost certainly stretched out over the years. To get smaller breasts, you'd likely need a combination of breast implant exchange (for smaller implants), removal of some or all of the breast capsule (capsulectomy), and removal of redundant breast skin with probable lifting of the nipple areola complex (mastopexy or breast lift). A smaller, perkier result should be possible with a combination of these procedures.
Hope this helps!
