Should I ask for a revision?
You really have a wonderful result, and you were wise to use textured because there is less chance for the implant to stretch out your skin continually with time. Lifting is repositioning of the nipple and removal of excess skin for a more attractive and proportional breast. Your surgeon has certainly achieved this! Lifting does not mean placing the breast higher in the chest wall. Your bra still has to do a little of the work. Next time you see your surgeon, thank them for such a lovely job.
I would NOT ask for a revision .
The enemy of good is perfect
Breast lift with implants - unhappy with result.
- I totally understand that we all want perfection but comparing your before and after photos I see -
- An excellent result
- A tremendous amount of lift
- And stretch marks on your skin - this means your skin is weak and you aren't going to get that super-high, close look that some teenage girls have.
- If you have a revision, I strongly suggest you consider a smaller implant to put less pull on the skin.
- I suggest you not have any revision if you maintain your current result.

What determines the shape and position of breasts after augmentation and a lift?
There is unlikely to be any physician on this forum that would suggest a revision to your surgery because it is a beautiful result and the issues that you are questioning are mostly due to your chest shape and other variables that the surgeon cannot change (even if you want them to).
I always try to help my patients understand these issues before the surgery so that they are familiar with what they should expect. One of the ways I help them achieve these realistic expectations is to provide a free breast augmentation planner at aBetterBreast.com that they can download and review at their leisure. You may find some of the information there to be helpful and beneficial as you continue to recover from your surgery.
Should I ask for a breast augmentation/lifting revision?
Breast lift and 650cc textured silicone implants, but not high enough?
Thanks for your question and photos. I must agree with the other doctors, your results look outstanding based on what you described was done. Your anatomy dictates what happens in terms of your outcome. They are fuller and more youthful looking as compared to before. yes, I agree that they are not giving more medial cleavage and there is some slight droopiness but that is normal based on the degree of stretch marks( or tears in your skin) from the breast being stretched.
A simple revision of removing more skin will likely fail and give you an outcome with likely bad scars and more bottoming out due to the large size of your implant. The only thing I would consider for a revision case like yours is using an internal bra like strattice or seri to increase support for your breast and help prevent bottoming out which will likely happened over time as the implants that you are carrying are very heavy. Wait at least 6 months to year before proceeding with a revision. Good Luck. Tell your surgeon he/she did and outstanding job!
All the best,
