Options for a more natural look
hi and thank you for the question. You do have a number of options to change the look to something that would be more appealing to you. One option is certainly to use different profile implants. If you currently have high profile, then switching to moderate or low profile implants will give you a more natural upper pole. Another option is to switch to shaped implants, what people commonly referred to as gummy bear implants. These give a very natural slope to the upper pole of the breasts. The other factor to consider is the overall size of the implants. The implants you have may just be too large for your frame. Downsizing to a more conservative implant would potentially help you achieve the look you're going for. my suggestion would be to discuss this with your plastic surgeon. You could also get second opinions from other experts in the area. It would be helpful if you brought them photographs of your desired outcome so that they can establish a plan that would best meet your goals. Good luck to you.

Cap con vs lots of other variables from surgery
I can see your concerns in your photos. A Mod+ implant under the muscle is a reasonable implant profile for a primary augmentation and does not always give you the over augmented look(actually quite the opposite, usually gives a very natural appearance). Where you/your surgeon may have went wrong initially was the size chosen based upon your nipple to fold distance and your base width, in addition to pocket dissection possibly(there are many variables in the equation). Implant size/profile is better chosen with the patients anatomic measurements instead of just picking a size/volume. Your implants will not drop at this point as you are 5 years out, they are sitting in a well formed pocket and will not move at this point.IF the breasts are soft, you likely do not have Cap con. The shiny skin is simply from the skin stretch related to implant placement. Also very common. The options you mentioned are all likely reasonable, switch to something smaller in Mod+, switch to a mod profile(you prob won't really want this, but possible), switch to an anatomic/tear drop. You should schedule a consultation to be seen and evaluated by a plastic surgeon to discuss these options.

Over the internet requests for the changes you desire are not the correct forum. Best to seek many in person consultations wth examinations to determine if your desires are achievable...
Thank you for your question. Based on your photos you have a very nice result. If you're looking for a more natural upper pole look, I would recommend the teardrop or shape implants. These implants give the most natural looking breast . The downside of these implants is that it lacks the upper pole fulness that you currently have. There is also a 1% chance that these implants can spin in your body thus creating some deformity or disfigurement of the breast.
