Want to change my implant size
Breast Implant Sizing
Although achieving a patient's aesthetic goals are important, it should not be prioritized above biodimensional analysis and determination of maximum anatomic capacity. I don't know what was done in this regard, but if your surgeon has made an (hopefully) objective determination based on direct measurements that 415 cc is the largest, then it would not be advisable to go bigger. Going beyond objectively determined anatomic capacity increases the risk of complications.
Best of luck!

Selection of implant size appropriate for your body
In my three decades of experience I found the best way to decide on an implant is to assess the patient's goals (as long as they are realistic) and have a variety of implant sizes available based on the actual appearance of the patient's breast during the surgical procedure. I prefer spending the extra time evaluating sizers that show me the actual appearance of the result rather than estimating and making a preselection in advance of the procedure.Keep in mind that your skin must be expandable to the degree necessary to accept a specific implant or it becomes unnatural and the risk of complications jumps. Good luck in making your decision and best wishes.Jon A Perlman M.D., FACS

Large implant risks
Some surgeons will tell them of the risks of large implants, the drooping, stretch marks, need for revision surgeries, rippling, stretching of the skin, irreversible animation artifact of the pectoral muscle when the pectorals fibers are excessively removed from the sternum, etc.
Sometimes it comes down to a negotiation of what sizes will actually fit vs what the patient perceives they want.
Ultimately there is great value in finding a surgeon who cares about your term results.

The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast…
