Would revision cause complications? My prev breasts were completely flat w/ tuberous arreola & nipple due to the distance from nipple to inframammory fold we went with over the muscle placement also had enough tissue. Itold my surgeon Iwanted to be a Ccup but he said 290cc would be good to start with & later revise. For peace of mind I am wondering why we weren't able to go larger the first surgery? Would Ihave had complications or would it not fit properly? Picture is today 8 days post op, wish they were way bigger love the work!
What would be the reasoning why my surgeon only put 290cc Sillicone? Wanted to be a C cup. (photos)

You do indeed have a very nice result. A larger implant may be an option for you moving forward, although I would advise you to wait 3-6 months before making that decision. Size discrepancies can exist between surgeons and their patients and these issues are best resolved with good communication.Hope this helps.Dr. Ali Mosharrafa

Considering the tuberous configuration and the incisions around the areolae 290cc may have been the most that your surgeon was comfortable with and not risk wound healing problems. The skin will stretch over time and the projection will improve.Thanks for your question.
Not sure of how or why that volume implant was chosen. In our practice a larger size implant placed under the muscle would be no problem.
