I want smaller breast implants
Some patients come into my office for a breast augmentation revision surgery, and they want smaller implants. This can be a little trickier than putting in a larger implant. The reason being when one goes to a smaller implant, very commonly the capsule around the implant has to be made smaller to accommodate a smaller implant. And in some cases, a breast lift needs to be done.
What I find sometimes that is very difficult to decide is how much smaller does the patient really wanna go. It’s usually easy to go up or larger because I can just show them with added volume what they may look like. But going down the reverse can be a little bit more involved and a little bit more tricky to determine exactly what the patient wants. And that’s during consultation, we really sit down and go over this in great detail.
