From your experience, do the 492 mod plus silicone breast implants make someone of my size look too top heavy? (Photo)

The right size for you...
1. Dimensional planning
2. Gel Implant Sizing system
Dimensional planning – The measurements of your chest wall are taken. Also, the breast dimensions including the height, width, and current dimensions of each breast form the basis of dimensional planning. Based on these measurements, the implant size is recommended. This will give you a unique breast implant that is suited for your body frame. However, there are some limitations of what size we can recommend. For instance, some implants may just be too big for a narrow chest wall. Your surgeon can review this with you during the consultation.
Gel Implant Sizing system – During the preliminary breast implant consultation, you will be provided with an option to “try on” a variety of implant shapes and sizes. You can also visualize the possible outcomes of your surgery which helps you to get that perfect size to give you the shape that you longed for. This way your preferences are known and you can then pick a range of implants that will “fit” just right to give a soft natural fuller look. Hope this helps.

Implants alone will not correct deflated breasts
Gary Horndeski, M.D.
Concerned about breast implant size
You are of normal height, normal weight and appear to have a wide chest.
Yes, implants will not be smaller but tend to look smaller, once they are under the muscle.
But a lot depends on your goal and the extent of your deflation, as well as your chest width.
If you have lost a great deal of volume, the 492 implant may simply replace what you had before.
But many women today want to avoid the 'obvious' look and prefer to err on the side of smaller.
Implants can be placed that are slightly smaller than your breast base width.
Return to your plastic surgeon for a second consultation to try on the implants again, have him/her reassess your chest again and discuss whether the smaller implant might be a better choice for you, no matter how good it looks to others.
It is important to be confident you have made the right decision before you have surgery. Best wishes.

However you must be perfectly comfortable with the appearance because my opinion and your plastic surgeons opinion is definitely secondary to how you feel.
