Refilling saline-filled breast implants
Saline-filled breast implants are meant to be filled once and then allowed to seal. Refilling them or overfilling them could void the warranty for the implants.
I would recommend a simple replacement of the apparently failed implant and then let things heal and settle and see if you want to replace both implants with larger (or different type) implants later. The current replacement should be largely covered by the warranty on the implant.
Changing the plan in midstream
If you really want to be larger, you can ask your surgeon about what options you have. If the current implant has more space to allow more filling, you could certainly pursue this with your re-do of your deflated side.
