Breast Augmentation - I have 17 year old McGhan saline implants (350-500cc) (nice job/no problems)and want them a little smaller. Just consulted with a PS and she is going to drain out a little of my current implants. But I'm reading you can't do that as a permanent fix. Is this true?

It depends on what type of saline implants they are. If they have a port that allows removal of saline without creating a hole in the implant and leaking, then that could work fine. The other option many women consider is replacing the saline implants with silicone implants after so many years. Silicone is much safer than it used to be. Instead of liquid, they're more gel in nature which allows them to keep their shape even if there is a break in the shell.
