Question Suggestions for Seat

I have an excellent after-market seat manufactured by Saddlemen. It is high quality for sure, but I am on the short side, 5'7" and now 66 years old and having a bit of a time getting my right leg over the seat, especially when dismounting. I am looking for suggestions for a seat which will give a lower profile and make it easier to get on and off the bike. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

A few of us have used C&C seats out of CA. They shaved my seat as much as they could, added a gel insert (which doubled the miles I can do in a day), then reupholstered in what they call "Vinyl Asphalt Super Grip material". It lowered the seat a good bit and now I feel like I'm sitting in the bike vs on top of it. I'm the same height and it made a huge difference. They're not exactly cheap but I'd probably put it in my top 5 mods done to the bike. Lifetime warranty as well.
