Is A Revision Needed?

Hello, I had a BA back in 2013 and originally had 185cc unders placed. Due to complications, I had to have them changed four weeks later and as a last minute decision decided to go slightly bigger with 215cc HP Furry brazilians (10.2 cm width). I have regretted it ever since. I am VERY petite (5'2 or 158cm and only 39 kg or 90lbs) and had a BWD of approx 9.75cm. I am so worried that the size I decided to go with (215c in the end) is too big for my very small frame, even after three years. I still get dull aching pains around the implant edges and incision lines on both sides that can last a good couple of days before they go away (is this normal, or is it possible my skin is now just hypersensitive?) and I can feel them under my skin. I am seriously considering a revision, but of course the cost is something I need to think hard about. Do you think it is worth it to go back to 185cc? Will it make that much difference? I am self conscious about the size on me (I don't wear a bikini) and worry people think they are obviously fake given my small size. I went from a completely flat chest (think ironing board flat) and now measure in at 8C if I can find it. I'm so worried and unsure of what the best thing to do is.

    Hi Juliaanna1701.
    Thank you for posting your questions. Without photographs, it is very difficult to give accurate advice. 
    The difference between 185 and 215 is very small (30cc), and in general should not make a significant difference in the overall cup size, unless of course your frame is very small (which you may be). Additionally, size is a very subjective matter. As long as the dimensions of the implant fits the patient's frame, the final judge on what is too big or small in general lies with the patient. They type of implant also plays a role in how they feel. As far as the pain and aches are concerned, I would seek the assessment of a plastic surgeon to see what may be causing this.
    All the very best.
