I got saline implants 10 yrs ago. After nursing three children, gravity, age, and my tissues were thin. I recently switched to silicone and strattice was used since my implants had slidden off my chest and more into my armpits. I downsized from over 400ccs saline to 375 silicone mentor mod plus.
So far, I'm concerned with my results. Has anyone had theirs look similar and they turned out ok? I'm starting to become very concerned.

My new surgeon took my implants down approx 50 ccs and used strattice because I had bottoming out on bottom and laterally. In my one before pic, I took that in a mirror so my breasts are flipped, but my right nipple has always been larger. I feel my left breast now is droopy and heavy at the base and too high at chest. My right is too high and doesn't even fill lower pocket (I can feel skin where it should be). My PS says they have the illusion of being asymmetrical because I have more breast tissue on my right one by my armpit. However, to me, my left feels heavier and appears larger in clothes. What can a surgeon do to fix this if a revision is needed. I've been wanting a redo for 5 years and I'm sad that they aren't what I expected.

I have no reason not to recommend him right now, so far I like and respect him. My surgery was complicated. He is very experienced though, which is probably why I expected a better result.
