350cc Mentor Implants, Need Redo Due to Capsular Contracture
I had breast augmentation done eight years ago....

I had breast augmentation done eight years ago. The implants are 350cc, Mentor silicon gel, placed subglandularly.
I was quite happy with the results. Now I have Baker grade IV of capsular contracture in my left breast and grade III in my right breast and they dropped quite a bit.
I understand that I should get capsulectomy, breast lift and another breast augmentation done. Although, I hope that my breasts could look OK after having only a breast lift, as I really don’t wish to go through potential complications with breast implants again... I however doubt that it will be possible as I believe I don’t have enough of my own tissue and yes, it is important to me that my breasts look nice, round and full that appears can only be achieved with breasts implants.
Also, I would like to change the position of the implants to subpectoral in order to avoid the reoccurrence of capsular contracture and to get a more natural look and also, would like the areolas reduced.
After the surgery the breasts were a bit asymmetric.
