Well it is 2am and I am 5 days pre-op. I am so nervous and terrified. But excited all at the same time. I am 5'7 125lbs. I had my consultation at the end of September and my mom went with me, she does not have boobs either. So I think we got really wrapped up in trying on all the sizes and stuff that we chose way to big of a size for me. We chose 440cc HP silicone. As I got home I freaked out... more
It is very liberating to be able to talk about this journey on this outlet. Honestly, I have no one other than my husband to turn to and I hope I am making the right decision. I don't plan on telling my family or friends about this procedure unless they somehow figure it out or notice the changes and then confront me about it!
I have always been small, about 34A/B before kids and my boobs... more
Hello BA team!!! 3 ds to go

Just sick a little from me just being scared LOLOL I feel like I am both super scared and heartfully hopeful all goes well. No photos today. I am typing off my phone. Just grateful this site exists... more
I'm so dang sore. My least favorite part of my uneventful day post op is easily getting up from a chair or out of bed. Surely it has to do with not only being post surgery, but also has big my implants are. I'm very petite (5'3 almost 5'4 - 105- however my shoulders and chest wall is broad)
I can definitely say I do not regret not "not going bigger" like a lot of women do. In fact, I'm quite... more
I'm 5'9" and 153 lbs, with a small upper body. I work out 5x a week and love to lift weights. I have scoliosis. It's not noticeable, but my ribcage is highly asymmetrical. As a result, I had an A+ on the left and a B (maybe C) on the right. They were both pretty but very different. For as long as I can remember, I wanted symmetrical breasts. I have never been able to buy a bra, or fit... more
Since I was a teenager I have been self conscious about my breasts. They are small and for a 52 year old, fairly perky, but never 'grew up'. I am a 32a and have always wanted to feel more womanly in the breast department. I have talked myself out of doing a procedure for years, for various reasons, such as, scared of health repercussions, don't want to lose nipple sensation, don't like... more
Very athletic. Started doing Crossfit a year ago and weight lifting caused me to lose a lost of breast volume which made me decide I wanted to get a BA for a more womanly shape. Went from high B to around a D i would guess. 400 cc silicone breast augmentation under the muscle, (incision under the breast) for a natural look. I have an athletic and slender frame at 5'5'' and around 115 lb. I... more
I am really feeling anxious, uncertain... Have cold feet. I have been contemplating a Breast Augmentation for ages. I do not like the way my flat chest looks in most fashions. And I love fashion and clothes!! So tired of wearing a heavy super padded bra that is always falling down. However, I usually am in workout attire and don't mind my small breasts in workout clothes. Personally, I think... more
It has been one week since my surgery with Dr. Lowen and I couldn't be more pleased. Everything went extremely well from the moment I called the office to schedule the apt to the follow up. Dr. Lowen is simply amazing!!!!
I am surprised at how fast I am recovering and how little pain I was in. The meds do work!!! I think the one thing that has helped me the most was doing the stretches,... more
I am very athletic and muscular, 140 lb at 5'2, I have a big butt but had nothing proportionate at the top. Since my ba I feel more womanly and even with my body. The healing was a breeze but the anxiety before the op wa definitely an exhausting experience, I'm so happy to have had these forums to keep my mind sane:) more
I am moving to Colombia this summer and want to get my BA there. I've had a consultation with Premium Care in Cartagena and the Dr. was very nice and explained everything really well. There are a few other Drs. I am considering too. Dr. Amaya in Bogota and Dr. Juan Esteban Sierra in Medellin. Has anyone used any of these Doctors?? Any advice on Doctors in Colombia would be great.
Hi. I... more
Implants: Under muscle, Mentor Silicone High Profile 275-300cc
I've always wanted bigger boobs since I was 18. I hate the fact that I wasn't able to fill out certain clothes, bathing suits or bras. And every time I walked into Victoria's Secret, I'd come out feeling depressed because nothing fit right!
Now that I'm older & have a decent job, I've decided... more
After many consultations and wanting a breast augmentation for years, I am finally scheduled. I am a 29 year old mother of two, 5'1" tall and 105 lbs ; am currently a deflated 32a cup (maybe!) and hoping to achieve a full C cup to small D . I have read many reviews on this site and they have helped me tremendously throughout my search for a doctor so I thought I should do my part and post my... more
I am now about 3 weeks out of surgery. I was a big A and went with 330cc silicone submuscular to get a full B or small C. First I was really shocked about the size as they got really swollen the day after surgery. At the moment I am a bit concerned about the form of my new boobs. Altough they look quite ok for me when watching them from the front, they really have an odd... more
Oh my gosh! Am I excited? I have butterflies, there's only 4more days to go until my op. I've been wanting to do it since I was 16 since I was a late grower :( but now finally at 20years old I have the funds to do so.
Had a bit of negative energy these past couple of days as my partner and mum are not very happy. My partner hates the idea of fake breast and thinks it'll turn him off and won't... more
I have wanted breast implants since I was about 13 years old. I remember my mom being interested in them when I was around that age, and her showing me all of the before and after pics on the internet. Let's begin by saying that I HATE MY BOOBS. In my opinion they are big, floppy, saggy, droopy, and I think my areolas are just too big.
I went through most of high school usually wearing 2 bras... more
I've been stalking this site for over a month now reading all of the reviews and stories. This has all been really helpful to me and satisfy my curiosity, so I thought I would do the same and share my experience. Hopefully I will inspire and help others as well.
It begins like this, my stats are I'm 5'5, around 110lbs and have absolutely no boobs! Seriously, believe me when i... more
I went in for a consultation for breast augmentation. I had a great experience with my doctor, the best actually. Nothing was awkward, my doctor is extremely professional, I felt great leaving his office and scheduling my appointment for surgery. I should also mention, I love my doctor because EVERYTHING was my decision, no pushing this way or that way at all. The day of the surgery, I got... more
I am 5'2", 120 lbs and 25 years old. My current bra size is a 34B (32C in VS). I am hoping to be a full C or small D.
1 day pre op: my anesthesiologist called me (on christmas day) to asked if I had any questions for tomorrow, and reminded me not to eat anything after midnight. I thought that was really nice, especially on christmas day. I took half a pill of Valium (instructed by my doctor)... more
