My opinion about your situation:
-downwards displacement of implants (bottom out) due to poor adherence features of your implants (may them be smooth or microtextured?)
-as consequence of the former too long distance nipple-submammary fold
-too round shape (they were surely round, since they are saline filled)
You need an amazing though extremelly difficult procedure, consisting of:
-lower pole capsulorraphy to reattach skin to ribcage and build a new submammary fold at the proper distance from the nipple
-anatomical profile implants
-implants of high adherence to prevente the recurrence of the dislocation, macrotextured if possible and ideally polyurethane coated implants (if available), since the polyurethane shell offers the highest adherence and an unique velcro effect in the whole market
Seek a good surgeon profficient in capsulorraphies.

Breast Revision to Include Smaller Implants
It is certainly feasible to #downsize to smaller implants and also alter the positioning; if possible. However, decreasing is size may also require a Breast #Lift to to #tighten loose skin, better optimize the end result. Any #revision has risks of unhappy outcome or other complications. Also, the right implant for the revision is contingent on shape of body and your desired outcome.

Without a doubt you will NOT need a lift. Your current implants are low in your breast tissue envelope and your nipples are very high, well above your inframammary fold. After removing your current implants, repairing the internal capsule so that a smaller and lighter implant sits in a higher position on your chest wall, your breast tissue envelope will conform very nicely and with a very similar breast shape, only improved!
Best of luck!
