Benelli Lift Limitations
In this particular case, the Benelli lift would probably require closure under tension and probably wouldn't address excess skin in multiple dimensions. This might result in poor breast shape and spread of the peri areolar scars.
If you're considering implant exchange with breast lift surgery, it's important to consult a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in this area. This surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.
Vertical breast lift necessary with change to smaller implants
Beneli lift is not very powerful

Beneli lifts the areola NOT the breast
There is a new technique called Implant Exchange with Mini Ultimate Breast Lift. Using only a circumareola incision it is possible to exchange your implants, 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. Small silicone implants placed retro-pectoral look and feel more natural, are more stable long term, less likely to ripple or have complications needing revision. Your implants are too heavy, have descended and require revision or they will progressively descend.

Lollipop scar breast lift is best for most women.
Smaller implants will give you more sagging. I don't think this will be corrected with Benelli approach. But women accept lollipop scars fine if they love their new perky breasts.
Possibly a full lift required
Maybe with Dr. Benelli, and I don't mean to sound flippant, but most of us have not been able to achieve the results that he could!!! So if you were my patient, I would suggest a smaller implant, probably by 100cc and then my guess is that you would need a full lift and not even the lollipop...Your breast are quite full at the bottom and may need some of that reduced as well....
Would a Benelli Lift Be Enough?
If you are only decreasing the size of the implant 60 cc, this may be achievable. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast lifts, breast augmentations, and breast augmentation revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Revisional breast surgery
A Benelli would address your areolar size but not most of your other concerns. When you downsize your implants there will be more skin to deal with and additional scars would be needed to deal with improve your situation. Internal sutures of your capsules would be beneficial in avoiding too much late realization of your smaller implants. Best wishes
Not a candidate for a Benelli breast lift
A Benellli or doughnut mastopexy has the highest rate of patient dissatisfaction. The procedure will give you a minimal elevation of the nipple 1 - 2 cm and it will reduce the size of the areola. The major problem is that the Benelli lift will flatten the breast and push the implant even more to the lateral side. Consider no surgery or a vertical breast lift.

Sometimes an excellent result should be left alone. Because you never know the risks you will incur if another operation is done. If you were my personal patient I would do everything to convince you to NOT have more surgery.
