One of the most common comments we hear from women desiring a change in their breast implant size is “I wish I would’ve gone larger the first time”. On rare occasions it’s the opposite where someone feels uncomfortable from going too big. If you are unhappy with your current implant size and desire a change there a few things to keep in mind.
If you want to go larger, often times moving to a higher profile implant will help create more cleavage and upper breast fullness. If you feel that your breast shape doesn’t compliment your body the way you like, possibly changing the width of your implants can help to accentuate your shoulders, waist, and hips.
If you want to move to smaller implants you have different options. If you want a considerable decrease in size, you may need to have a breast lift/reduction to take care of any skin or breast tissue that has stretched while having the larger implants. If you had your implants for a short period of time, your body will often shrink down to accommodate the new smaller implant. Also, if you just want to move down one or two implant sizes, the skin will often shrink down. How well your skin will shrink down to the new size will depend on the quality of your skin. Stretch marks are an indication that your skin is unlikely to shrink very well.
