Is It Possible to Look Smaller Switching from Saline 550cc to High Profile Silicone 600-700cc?

I recently changed from 550cc saline implants to 600cc-left and 700cc right high profile silicone. It has only been a month since my surgery and they seem small.. Is this possible?

Implants feel smaller

The implant volume went higher. What you may be seeing is swelling masking the outline of the implant like you had before.

Breast Implant Size Change Inadequate For Expectations

Clearly your breasts are not smaller since you have larger implants. Undoubtably what you feel is that the size change was not significant enough. That would not be a surprise on your left side because the size increase is only 50cc or 9% bigger than your original volume. Such a change can barely be seen. The right side has a 27% change or 150cc which should be more noticeable but if it was an originally much smaller breast, it too may not have been enough of a difference.
