After implant removal and lift, can I have a C cup?
Generally speaking what breasts look like after explantation depends on several factors such as: the quality of skin elasticity (the better the elasticity the better the skin will bounce back), the size of the implants used (the larger the implant the more trouble you may have with redundant skin), and the amount of breast tissue present at this time (which may have changed since the time of your breast augmentation).
Life experience since your breast augmentation procedure, such as pregnancy or weight gain weight loss, will potentially influence the factors discussed above. If you take these factors into consideration and apply them to your specific circumstances you may get a good idea of what to expect after the implants are removed.
Consulting with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons in person will be helpful. I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to breast implant removal surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
Options After Implant Removal
Implant removal and lift
If your breast are soft, you should be able to compress/squeeze your own tissue in front of the implant and get an idea about how much of your own tissue would remain after a breast lift (mastopexy). It appears, from the one photo that you show, that you might well have enough tissue remaining (after implants are removed) to still be a mid to full C cup with a lift to consolidate your remaining tissue. Your surgeon should be able to help you with this assessment in person.
Good luck to you.
