POst Op Size Concern
You didn't indicate how soon post op you are. It is normal for incision sites to be sensitive to direct pressure for at least a couple months after surgery. It will likely take up to 6 months for your breasts to soften and settle into the new pocket. You will need to be patient for this process and allow yourself to heal before considering a revision. follow up with your Plastic Surgeon if you have any concerns about healing.
All the best
I cannot tell from your photograph where this incision is relative to your infra-mammary crease. If, however, you would like to go smaller you could reef up the bottom portion of the pocket as well as the lateral aspect with a capsulorraphy and revise that scar moving the scar back towards the bottom at the level of the information increase. I would discuss this with your chosen plastic surgeon. Good luck.

Location of breast incision
I do not know the circumstance or reason why your plastic surgeon placed the scar lower than your crease line. I always try to place the breast incision/scar at the crease line or just above the crease line.
If you want to go smaller in implant size, you can have implant exchange; however, your surgeon may have to tighten the implant pocket.
Please consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn about your option and to discuss your goal and to see whether your goal can be achieved.
