About Increasing Breast Implant Size During a Revision
Yes, it is possible to #increase your implant size with a #revision. However, the #pocket may require adjustment and a lift may be necessary; to better #support the new implant depending on an evaluation. Additionally, a mesh for further support may be helpful depending on the #implant size and skin #elasticity.
With both implant types there are choices when it comes to size, shape, and profile. The criteria best to suit you will be discussed in full detail at your breast augmentation consultation. Any cosmetic #revision has risks of unhappy outcome or other complications. Also, the right implant for the revision is contingent on shape of body and your desired outcome. Your procedure should always be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for another revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient #reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
Unhappy breast augmentation with vertical scar lift
They are still fairly low after your lift, so I think it would be very reasonable to approach your PS with your concerns and see if they will offer you a revision!I have attached a link to my Breast Augmentation Revision photo gallery for your review- hope it helps!

I am assuming you had breast augmentation only. I'm not sure what a submuscular lift means. Based upon the anatomy of your breasts preoperatively, I think that is what I would have predicted as a result for breast augmentation alone. You might consider a true mastopexy at this point to get the breast higher. It is difficult for a breast that is low set to begin with to be able to hold up the weight of a large implant. So yes, it is worth a revisit to discuss the options
