34G breast wanting to be smaller, what do I need to do?
downsizing your implants while performed capsular tightening and revision mastopexy is a common procedure for plastic surgeon. If you live near your original plastic surgeon, likely worthwhile seeing them for a consultation in addition to other properly trained plastic surgeons. It appears you have a reasonable long term result 11 years post-op.

The best online general advice I can give to ladies who are considering revisionary (downsizing) breast augmentation surgery (regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.
2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals. In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. For example, I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or "down a cup size” or "C or D cup" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful. Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate.
3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your chosen plastic surgeon to work with you in determining the best plan to achieve your goals. Again, using as many "visual aids" as possible will help eliminate miscommunication. I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to revisionary, specifically downsizing, breast augmentation surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
