Smaller Implant Exchange with Mini Ultimate Breast Lift
Unfortunately, you had a breast augmentation with lollipop lift. This technique produces ugly vertical scars, which are impossible to hide. You may benefit from a new technique called Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast Lift. With this technique, it is possible to exchange your implants with smaller ones, reshape your breast tissue creating upper pole fullness, elevate them higher on the chest wall and more medial to increase your cleavage. Aligning the areola, breast tissue and implant over the bony prominence of the chest wall gives maximum anterior projection with a minimal size implant.

Breast implant issue and too large with lift
180 cc implants are pretty small. If you think that you are too large, then you probably should have the implants removed and just revise your lift.

Please see the previous responses to your questions for more detailed answers. As you can imagine, online consultants will not be able to know why your plastic surgeon is making the recommendations that he is.
In my opinion, downsizing of breast implants alone will likely not suffice to achieve your goals; "down sizing” of the breast skin envelope will also be necessary. In other words, breast lifting revisionary surgery, as well as downsizing of breast implants will likely be necessary as well. Obviously, as the “complexly” of the procedure increases, so does the potential risks/complications. These considerations may also be behind your plastic surgeon's recommendations to you.
I hope this helps.
