I made the decision to get a breast augmentation back in June of 2014. One of the main reasons why I chose to have this surgery was due to the fact that I lost a ton of breast tissue after my 50 lbs weight loss. I literally had nothing and I did not feel very feminine at all. I am 28 years old, no kids.
I made research about plastic surgery in Chicago. I was looking at the final results,... more
Since I started puberty, my breasts were always asymmetrical. Doctors and my parents and friends convinced me they'd even out eventually, but never did. My breasts stopped growing by 17, being two whole cup sizes different in size. I stuffed my left cup from age 14 to 19, which is when I got my breast augmentation. I never wore swimsuits or tops without a bra. I was always nervous that my... more
Hi everyone. It's 2 days post op and I've got a really weird shape going. I know it's normal but it's wacky looking. I haven't had too much pain. My prescription is Norco. I have tried not to take it too much. Today I tried to just take Aleve instead. My incisions are in my armpits. Implants feel high and tight and were painful
This morning. But it's got to get better every day,... more
So my BA surgery is scheduled for monday of this month and I am super super excited. I've been doing a lot of research and looking at different before/after photos. When I first went on my consultations (I went to see 3 doctors before I chose the one who's going to perform my surgery) I tried on 410 silicone moderate profile, 450 and 500 silicone high profile. I thought I liked... more

I have two kids, a 18 yrs and a 16 yrs, both girls. I neve thought to put silicone, well maybe yes, but never was something that I was 100% sure about, but now I know my turn has arrived and I want this so badly. I cant wait to update my... more
Throw is my first consultation. I'm nervous because I've been watching the show botched and hoping to never be anywhere near it. My current bra size is a 34C and I'm hoping to become a DD or even triple D so long as it good my body. I'm curvy but thin, and I've always wanted that brick house body, like a kim Kardashian or Amber rose, but not as thick. So this will hopefully be my surgeon. (Dr.... more
Dr Robert Galiano of Northwestern Memorial is an amazing plastic surgeon. I could not be happier with my results. He answered every question and need I had. Before,during and after my procedure, Dr G was there for me. He's a real artist in his field! After 2 years I am going back for issues with my nose and I know he with take excellent care of me. I highly recommend Dr Galiano for any... more
I'm what they call "fun size" 5ft 100 Ibs but my breasts were not so fun, It was very uncomfortable having small breasts, I didn't feel very feminine. I was made fun of a lot, all my female friends had breasts and were curvy and I was just this tiny girl with absolutely no cleavage. I just didn't feel very attractive. Once I got a bit older I started experimenting with breast enhancers, breast... more
I am 27 years old, about 5'7" and 105lb. I have been naturally skinny my whole life, and teased mercilessly for it forever. My mom, grandmas and aunts all had full boobs as I was growing up and to me, becoming a woman meant getting boobs. A late bloomer, what boobs I did get (32-34A, i can cheat and say 32B at VS but only in a push up style, thank god for vanity sizing) didnt come until I... more
For as long as I can remember I have always wanted breasts but I knew I wanted to wait until I had children so I could breastfeed without any concern that my implants would affect breastfeeding. I am now 37 years old, I have 3 wonderful children (ages 5,3 and 1) and I'm ready to start focusing on my body and getting what I have always wanted.....breasts! I'm very athletic and active so I... more
My results exceeded my expectations. I have wanted a boob job for as long as I could remember. I started off as an 32 A cup and 375cc's later I am at a 32DD cup. I was extremely nervous prior to my surgery because I was unsure of what cc's amount I wanted. My doctor and his staff was extremely helpful. My recovery took about 4 days. I slept through most of the first and second day. By... more
I had breast augmentation and nipple reconstruction at the Geldner Center on July 26th. I got 304cc sub muscular silicone implants (which end up looking like the 270ccs that I tried on in the bra when I was doing sizing). I was never fully satisfied with my breasts, especially because my areolas are rather large and my nipples were flat and at times they would invert (In the before photo you... more
I had pretty decent breasts my whoever young line. After giving birth to an breast deeded both children, now aged 20 and 17, my breasts looked like deflated balloons. In a good bra, they still looked pretty good at a 34C, so some of my thought I was crazy for undergoing the surgery. But as a divorced woman, the thought of taking off my bra with someone new was devastating.
I opted for the full... more
As long as I can remember I have wanted larger breasts and so it feels great to finally have them!! My recovery time was veryyy quick and I was only in horrible pain for the first day (but the pain meds definitely helped alot with that). The entire procedure went rather quickly which I appreciated, however that goes hand in hand with how long Dr. Al spent with me. The day after the surgery was... more
I am not happy at all with my new breast augmentation. First of all, the stuff at Lipodoc, downtown location, is very incompetent. The most of the time the stuff there are rude. Specially the front desk woman. I asked myself several times where her supervisor that is not keeping the eye at their employees is. All Lipodoc stuff seems that they don't want to help you in anything. The only thing... more
I have always considered getting breast augmentation. I am age 24 and have never been able to fill out an A cup...until now. I am so incredibly happy I decided to go with the decision for breast implants!I went from a small A to a full C and I finally feel like a woman. My decision to go with Dr. Galante was easy. I am registered nurse and almost done with my doctorate in nursing, therefore I... more
I have wanted breast implants for 13 years. I also wanted nipple reduction as well due to puffy nipples. I finally had the income at age 28 to get this done. I researched 'best plastic surgeons in Chicago' and Dr. Mustoe kept popping up. I read reviews on him and also reviews on other Dr.'s and came to the conclusion that Dr. Mustoe was the best. I was so scared to have breast implants done... more
Hey ladies! Well, I'm all set and booked for surgery. Here is a little bit about me:
Current bra size: 32C (deflated)
Have 2 kids, both breastfed for over a year
I've been considering breast implants for almost a year. I decided to do it last fall, but decided to wait to make sure this is what I wanted. Its a life changer good, or... more
All my life I have been a petite person, 5'2 around 105lbs and 32A bra size. I have been self-conscious about my breast size for quite some time but I've never let it get in my way, I just make up for it in the push up department. However I am sick of taking of my VS Miraculous and having the sexy, feminine chest go with it, and also not being able to take it to the beach. My build is small,... more
Hello everyone! I just found this forum and I think it is great. Everyones reviews seemed to have helped me so far. I have wanted BA since I can remember. I never seemed to have developed the same as everyone else. I am almost 24 years old and do not have kids yet. Right now I wear a 34A/32B but many bras I can not fill up unless their is pushup padding. I am planning on doing 300 cc moderate... more
