Not satisfied with BA and want to go smaller. Will I need a lift?
Very hard to advise without seeing before posted photos. I bet you had asymmetry in the before? Thus the results with very large implants magnifies the asymmetries even if slight. I might reduce to 450 cc implants, with left donut lift of N/A to even out the levels, and possible fat grafts after 1 liter liposuction to gain better upper pole fill. Fee $8,000. Regards

Ultimately, careful communication of your goals will be critical; in my practice I find the use of goal photographs very helpful. Remember that terms such as "full C cup" may mean different things to different people.
Based on your photographs, I do not believe that breast lifting would be necessary. Whether or not adjustment of the breast implant capsules (capsulorraphy) and/or the use of additional supportive material such as acellular dermal matrix or biosynthetic mesh will be helpful will depend on your physical examination and a careful consideration of your concerns/goals. The dermis may also be helpful when it comes to "treatment" of breast implant rippling/palpability.
You may find the attached link, dedicated to "downsizing" cases, helpful to you as you consider options. You will find a separate page, on the same website, dedicated to correction of breast implant rippling concerns. Best wishes.
