After breast feeding my child for 1 1/2 years and gaining 43 lbs over the 3 years, looking in the mirror was a pain to me because I was unable to recognize myself. I lost 30 lbs and hoping to lose a couple more lbs to achieve my goal weight. Why is it that when you lose weight it seems like the first things that go is yours breast and your ass? Why!? Well my breast and ass took tribute to my... more
Hi ladies ;) I've decided to write a review of my procedure just to pay it forward. (I've also been bored out of my mind during recovery!) It was kinda hard to find ladies with similar stats to mine. I'm using this as a way to track my progress as well..
Besides a few pics and the normal updates I'm also going to include some details about other things I did not find in anyone's reviews(pls... 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
For as long as I can remember, I've been self conscious of my chest. But I wasn't given the same start as everyone else in my family. At age 11 I had my ovary, tube, appendix and spleen removed. As I later learned in life, your hormones and estrogen are stores in your ovaries. I had one removed and half the other removed prior to going through puberty. I've worn the same size bra since I was... more
Surgery is 2 weeks away and I still can't decide what size and where the incision will be. I am not sure if I should do 425cc or larger! I have a tall frame and can easily carry large breasts. I have a lot of extra skin and stretch marks on my breasts and was a D while breastfeeding. Not having any more kids (mine are 10 and 16). Will post some pics when I get back from my pre-op... 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 had nice boobs pre-babies (a mid C). Then went up to a DD while nursing, back down to an A and then back UP to a DD while nursing my second and finally now that I'm done having kids they went down to a very sad AA (I call them my sock boobs). Basically I had NO tissue left. I'm done with kids and decided I was READY! I got 280cc on both sides (SO GLAD I WENT CONSERVATIVE) and although I'm... more
I decided to do breast augmentation, mini tummy tuck and lipo of the flanks. At first I was just going to do a scar revision, but for not much more I turned it into the mini tuck, and since I was going under I looked back into the augmentation. I've felt like I wanted it since I was about 16, being so active with strong arms and wide shoulders I didn't feel proportionate. I went from 36 b to... 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
I decided to have breast augmentation surgery after my divorce. Breastfeeding really destroyed my breasts and I wanted to be myself again. All my friends had surgery with Dr. Vistnes and they were very satisfied with the result so I knew he was the right choice. His office is very warm and elegant. The staff is very efficient and really nice. During the consultation, Dr. Vistnes gave me all... more
I had been wanting to do this procedure for years. I was recommended by a friend to see Dr. Vistnes. He was my first consultation for breast augmentation. The first visit was very informative. After seeing other doctors I compared my consultation and by far this was the best. The pre-opt appointment consist of picking the size I got 457cc silicone implants I'm 5'2 108lbs. On the day of the... more
My boobs reached their maximum magnitude when I was 15 years old... Since then even if I was hoping for more they stayed pretty much that way... Pretty small!
At some point I tried to ask my parents for some more but, this was not even an option :)
I was a kind of OK with that because, at the end, even if there wasn't much, they were cute little tits.
Eventually a few years later I got... more
Hello beautiful people,
I am here today because boobies, that's why. But in all seriousness, my interest and curiosity in getting a Breast Augmentation has led me to this lovely and informative web community.
I am 24 now, but I have been curious about BA's for several years. I have spent the last six years in the military on active duty, and for a while, I had gained a great deal of weight;... more
I'm 27 yrs old and have a 1 year old boy. Before baby I was a 34A and weighed 123lbs. After having my beautiful baby, I shrank to a 34AA and weigh 114lbs. I'm 5'2 and a slim chick with no curves! I wanted those full C's my pregnancy gave me back! I decided it was time to go see a PS.
I decided to go for 420 cc silicone Mod plus. I was very specific with my PS about NOT having the push up... more

Hi all! I'm scheduled to have a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty in one month! It's getting close, I'm excited. I'm 25, 112lbs, married, no kids. I've wanted a nose job since 5th grade--I'm just having them shave my bump off, and I can't wait. Over the past year, I've lost 35lbs and my boobs went with it!
