Are my goal breasts realistic and attainable?

I'm having my 6 year old subglandular implants removed with a lift and wanted to know if my goal breasts are a realistic expectation? Could mine look like that or similar? I don't want my areolas reduced, I know they will shrink after I finish breastfeeding before surgery. Are breasts reshaped internally as well with a lift? My right breast is engorged in the photo but usually same as the left. Thank you

    HiI've performed close to 100 explant surgeries now, and the most important lesson that I can pass on is to not have expectations. Your breasts and the skin will contract. The amount that they will contract is very variable. Performing a lift at the same time as an explant (especially in sub glandular implants) makes your final result very variable, and I've had to 'fix' a handful of patients that have had a combined procedure with poor results.http://www.drgavinsandercoe.com.au/breast/breast-implant-removal-explant/breast-implant-removal-explant-procedure/

    Well done on doing your research as its important to have very realistic goals when undergoing revision breast surgery. Your breasts are very different from anyone else and with implants are certainly not comparable in terms of results with someone who does not have implants and has not been lifted. Your goal breasts are not realistic for you but with carefully planned surgery you should be able to get your own lovely result with removal of your implants and lifting. Discuss your goals with a plastic surgeon who has extensive experience with revisional lifting surgery.
