Breast implant revision, uneven and immmmm... where do I start?
It's important when writing advice for you on Realself to keep it ... well... real. It would be so easy to write a superficial or glib comment, after the story you show and tell above.. But, you've had 5 operations now. It's time to take a breath. This is getting serious.
There's nearly nothing right with your breast implant position, or the previous surgery. The implants are too high and I don't understand why the capsule is positioned where it is at all. As you well know, your breasts now look odd, and it's not because the implants are too small, it's because the implants are not even closet to being in the right position.
Your breasts look very unnatural. I am not sure where the fault lies - is it your surgeon, or is it you - or both? Your desire for larger breasts yet makes me think that you have pushed for implants which are too big for your frame. But, your surgeon also must have a voice in the discussions you have together about the expected results.
My strong suggestion is to have consultations with other surgeons. Make sure they're Board certified plastic surgeons. That's a start.
I suspect your options will be to have beautiful breasts (and given your preop shape, there is no reason you can't), or very big breasts. I doubt very large implants will make your breasts look beautiful. So you have to decide what you want.
I am not sure you've made great decisions to date, so please take some time with consultations with at least 2 new surgeons to understand where this is all going wrong, and what can realistically be done about it.
I hope you do.
All the very best
Breast augmentation revision
It would hard to add to Dr Webster's assessment. Seek a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery, as evidenced by membership in The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Ask to see many pre and post op photos and speak with previous patients. Don’t let price be your sole determinate. The type of surgery you are describing takes some real expertise. If you have surgery and have to have it redone, it is no bargain.

I think you have considerable breast asymmetry with both implants being in a high, slightly unnatural position and the right being higher than the left.
I think a larger implant will make this problem worse and one of the main issues is that the muscle (pectoralis major muscle) is holding your implants in a high unnatural position.
In my opinion you either need release of the muscle to allow the implants to settle into a more natural position or movement of the implant in front of the muscle to reduce the high appearance.
From your photograph you look quite petite with little body fat and I think increasing the size of the implant would not be appropriate for you.
I do wish you the best of luck if you do decide to go ahead with surgery but would make sure that you see an experienced doctor who can give you the best result following your surgery.
Too many surgeries!
