What procedures do you need if you've had implants 15 years ago and you need an extensive lift? After weight gain and babies

will i need the lift performed and then new implants put in the original implants place? will i have to go up in the size of the implant to notice a real difference from the procedure? i initially had 425ccs implanted! the doctor recommended i go with 600ccs! if i have re augmentation performed would 600ccs most likely be suggested? i am l a 40d bra size and am not looking for bigger breasts! i just want them to look like they did after my first procedure 15 years ago! what would be suggested?

Patients with breast sagging after many years with implants often do very well with a lift and smaller implants.  Its usually possible to rearrange some of the breast tissue for a rounder fuller shape, then a  smaller can be used for fullness at the top if desired.

Without photos, it's impossible to assess which procedures would be necessary as well as which surgical approach would be best. However, you would need larger implants if there has been a loss of volume. Best wishes.

To determine what kind of lift you need you would have to be seen in person. And yes, it is likely you will need at least a 50-100 cc minimum change in implants volume to see a noticeable change.
