Larger breast after lift and augmentation
It is really difficult to answer this question without any pre-operative pictures to evaluate. Picking the appropriate size implants is a very important process during the pre-operative planning stage.The patient and the plastic surgeon must be on the same page. They must fully discuss the goal and expectations of the patient and any concerns the surgeon has to achieve the patient's goals.It sounds like this did not occur in your situation. In the massive weight loss population, "less is more" when it comes to choosing an implants size. I usually pick a lower projected implants in this patient population if any. Not knowing the specifics of your case (size and projection of your implant for example) I can't comment on the appropriateness of the implant size chosen.
