Breast Implants To High?
Thank you for your question! You would absolutly benefit from a wider implant. I would seek the advise from a board certified plastic surgeon and have a consultation with him or her. That way you can see what options you can take from there. Best of luck!Dr Dhaval PatelDouble Board CertifiedPlastic SurgeonHoffman EstatesOak Brook
Breast implants too high . . .
Excellent inquiry. Implant replacement with similar sized smooth, round moderate profile silicone gel implants with capsulotomy will very likely expand the lower pole and change your breast shape to your satisfaction. Thank you for sharing.
You'd get benefit from wider implants, anatomical contour shaped, and located better just behind the nipples.
Implants too high?
It is likely that a combination of factors are at play. Some descent of the breast mound off of the implant is likely at this stage. In addition, you may have a degree of capsular contracture elevating the implant as well. Either way, a nice result could be obtained by revising the implant pocket and exchanging for new implants. It should not be a problem to achieve your desired results.
Can change implant
Thanks for your question. Given your small size and the small implants, I would probably favor changing you to a Mod Plus profile smooth round implant to given you what you are looking for. The implants may have trouble filling the lower pole if the muscle has not been completely released or if there is just a tightness and short nipple-IMF distance. Best of Luck!
Based on your photographs, you would likely benefit from revision of the pocket to lower the volume. I do not think it would require a smaller implant. Your desired photograph shows a larger volume than you have with better release of the muscles along the breast fold. This can be achieved with removal and replacement of the implants with internal capsule excision.
Your question is quite reasonable. It appears that your breast tissue has drooped slightly downward with time since your surgery. The goal you are selecting appears slightly larger than your current breast volume. It seems that you could achieve your goals with a moderate plus style / style 15 smooth round silicone gel filled implant of slightly larger implant volume with a slight lowering of the inframammary fold to tip your nipple position upward. This could give you the fullness you seek and the illusion of a lift. Discuss these goals with your surgeon.
Revision surgery and smooth implants
You have normal changes and breast tissue has sagged off the implants. This is very normal especially for texture implants. You should get your desired look with revision and larger implants to fill the lower pole.
