Bigger implants are never the right answer for sagging breasts

If you have sagging breasts, it is your body's way of indicating that the skin of your breasts is not strong enough to support the weight of your breasts. Adding more weight in the form of bigger implants will only exacerbate the situation. I think that your only viable options are to have a capsulorrhaphy procedure to try to raise the existing implant or to undergo a breast lift procedure that effectively uses internal suturing techniques to improve the shape of the breasts.
