After having a modest increase in size with a breast aug. in May, can I now replace the implants with larger ones?

I had silicone implants placed under the muscle in May. I thought I wanted a modest increase but now feel like I should have gone larger. This is not my doctor's fault as he did what I asked and I thought the 250cc implants would be enough. Is it too soon to go back and ask for larger implants - I am looking for increasing my breasts another inch. I was an A cup, now I'm a B cup, and I would prefer to be a C cup. Instead of changing the implants, should I get fat transferred to the existing breasts to supplement them? Thank you for your time.

I recommend that you wait 3-6 months before replacing your current breast implants. As you get used to them you may decide that your current implants are enough. Fat can certainly be added to increase breast volume but it is still an experimental procedure and I have seen patients who have had fat injected to enlarge the breast after breast implants only to find that the fat has dissolved and had no effect. Please consult your plastic surgeon.
