Hello I am having a BA on thursday to fix my current boob job. I dont want to go to big but I really want to see a difference. Right now I am a C cup but as you can see the first PS placed them through the armpit and they are just too high and nipples facing down. My new PS says he will creat a lower pucket and will place the implants in a way they look even and the nipples are in the middle. Help pls. Thank you.
Would I See a Difference Going from 375 Cc to 500 Cc? (photo)

You need the implant repositioning and not bigger implants
The lower pole of your breast did not stretch post augmentation and your implants stayed high. You had trans axillary augmentation and pectoralis muscle was not released and has pushed your implants too high. If you get bigger implant,the problem will get worse. You need revision and not bigger implants.Please get second opinion.
Right now it is hard to tell what would be good for you. Obviously these implants are too high, and you need to have them moved lower and the muscle released better.
375 cc to 500 cc should make a difference
Thank you for your question.
Of course going from 375cc to 500cc implants should make a difference. Will it meet your goals? It's hard to tell without an examination and some goal photos.
Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. I use intraoperative sizers and place the patient in the upright position to evaluate breast size. Use of these sizers also allow me to select the breast implant profile (low, moderate, moderate plus, high-profile) that would most likely achieve the patient's goals. The patient's goal pictures are hanging on the wall, and allow for direct comparison. I have found that this system is very helpful in improving the chances of achieving the patient's goals as consistently as possible.

Positioning of Implants Needs Corection
Because the position of your implants is in such need of correction, I would advise you to first correct the shape, then adjust size if necessary. The shape of the breasts is paramount.
The increase in volume would make a difference.
The increase in volume will make your larger but if done alone would simply make your implants even higher. I agree that the muscle may have not been released in the first surgery and that is contributing to the 'high' implants. Your revision should include a full muscle release and you should consider an anatomic or 'tear drop' implant as your nipple to breast crease is very short. This will help to decrease your upper pole fullness.
Bigger May Not Be Better
Going with a larger implant may not be the best solution to your problem. According to the pictures, the placement of the implants look high. Lowering the breast pocket to have better implants placement may be the best solution.
