You have options for the type of breast implants
You will have the option of going with either silicone or saline breast implants.
To ensure that you are receiving quality work at the most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. The quality must be maintained at the highest level to maintain accreditation. The surgeons also have incentive to hire and train quality staff (to ensure that surgery is efficient and enjoyable), to ensure comfortable and private facilities (to encourage referral), and to eliminate waste (to ensure that these facilities can compete effectively).
Consult with 3 experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons to understand your options.

Silicone to saline implants
you can change your implants out for saline. It is important to know before surgery if you have capsular contractures. Capsular contractures result in hard breast .
If you do not have a capsular contracture one exchanges the silicone implants for saline implants. I like to get the input from the pt. in order to help determine the final size .
If the pt. , has a contracture the surgeon needs to remove the scar tissue before placing in the saline implants . It is not uncommon for my pt's to be driving 2-3 days after surgery . Different surgeons use different techniques to perform this surgery.
I utilize the finesse technique , that I invented . This minimizes pain and bleeding.
Cost can only be determined after your examined .

Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering revisionary (downsizing) breast augmentation surgery 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. I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or "down a cup size” 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.
I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to revisionary, specifically downsizing, breast augmentation surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
