Natrelle Breast Implant Kit -- Try This Only at Home

Eva S on 8 Jul 2009 at 3:38pm

Allergan has assembled a breast implant sizing kit for women who are curious about breast implants but have concerns about implant size. 

Just fork over $40 and they'll send you a lovely box containing four water-filled sizers and a stack of promotional materials, including $50 rebates for Juvederm and Botox, and a $20 rebate for Latisse.

It took a lot of cajoling to get the huge sizer bra stuffed under my shirt, but once it was in there, I'll admit I was pretty jazzed with my super-sized tots... til they almost tipped me over! Can I get worker's comp for that?! -- April, on the perils of being a breast kit guinea pig

So, in the interests of good investigative journalism, we ordered the Natrelle Pre-Consultation Kit, and immediately found it odd that there was one each of four different sizes -- so you can try them on but you end up lopsided, and they'd look a little silly out to dinner.

April, RealSelf's content director, volunteered to test the kit -- literally, taking two (at a time) for the team.

Had Implants put in at 25 years old. I had an incredible Doc who specialized in reconstructive hand surgery. Now I'm 47. My Take: Absolutely would do it again. PAY ATTENTION: after surgery the 2 most important things are to NOT do ANY strenuous stuff (I ripped stitches out cleaning tub) and once you get the okay to massage DO IT OFTEN. One of mine hardened and even though it finally resolved itself it was years later. IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS: My implants were put in through the areola (area around actual nipple) and sure there's very slight scarring but dark nipple color hides it. My areolas got really big maybe from skin stretching to accommodate implants. Now that I'm 47 I have to have a certain type of mammogram because it's harder to see around implants. Docs say mine are the best they've ever felt/seen. SIZE MATTERS: I went from 'A' to 'C' cup and it's the only thing I would change if I could do it again. I wear a large size everywhere but my breasts, so I can't wear a lot of cute stuff. IN SUM: Definitely went a long way to making me feel complete. I thought I'd grow up to look like my Barbie doll and when I didn't I had some kind of mental trip because of it. WHO LIKED THEM BEST: I'd have to say it's a toss-up between my husband and my donkey, Miss B. For her, they're exactly at eye-level, and she loves to put her head between them and get both eyes rubbed at once. Too Cute.

I am planning to have breast augmentation surgery in the near future. Thankyou for this blog. I had no idea a product like this exist. My kit arrived today and I am thrilled! I expected a flimsy almost disposable bra but I was impressed by the quality of the bra included. The pockets in it are ideal for the imitation implants which do not fit well into my own bras..I tried. I am a large framed woman and the medium fits me well. I worried that it wouldn't. I am a little confused as to how I will receive my rebates. I have yet to register my rebate card but the kit mentions that this if for natrelle implant rebate. I see no mention of the other product rebates. I expected the kit would pay for itself with these rebates. All in all, I am happy with this kit and it's worth every penny. Thanx!
