Explant with thin breast tissue
A question I would have for you is how old are you? What is your weight? Since you have had your implants since 1999 your body has continued to age. There is no way to know what your breast will look like without your implants until you are healed. I would recommend wearing a good compression garment for several weeks to promote healing. I was surprised to hear that you had liposuction of your lower breast. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for an in person exam to discuss your options and expectations.
If you don't have a lift with the explant, you will likely have extra skin which will make the breasts appear droopy. Fat grafting to the breasts can be an option for those not wanting implants. Best next step is to get a consult with a plastic surgeon.
Liposuction of breast tissue
You should discuss this situation and your concerns with your surgeon. I'm not sure why the decision was made to liposuction the breast tissue. Generally speaking an implant can be used to provide desired volume and the excess skin is removed via a breast lift to further provide optimal shape.
