I'm 36, active mom of 3, 5'3 103lbs. I've researched BA for years! I was a small 34B but 3 kids and lupus have left me a 32A/AA. I spend a lot of time in a bathing suit and its time not to look 12 anymore!! My lupus has been in remission for 3 years and I've got the green light to get the BA done. I'm hoping for a natural look, full B/small C. My doctor suggested 265cc/285cc Natrelle... more
I'm Alexis, nice to meet everyone! I fell in love with site a few months ago and have been creeping on it everyday since haha. Everyone thinks I'm crazy because all I do is look at breasts all day now. If you're anything like me, you know what I mean!
Allow me to begin by saying why I decided to share my story on RealSelf and just why exactly I wish to have a breast augmentation. I... more
I had my consultation a week ago. I had plenty of questions and concerns. Implant size and recovery were at the top of my list.
Dr. Fata answered all of my questions.
I am 5'3, 135 lbs and currently a 34A. After having 2 children and breastfeeding, I have a little sagging. I do not want a dramatic change. I just want the perky look again. We've decided an implant size of 325cc would be... more
Before getting pregnant with my beautiful, sweet little boy, I was a perky full C cup and LOVED my body! I was one of those girls who never had to watch what I ate or work out, and still had an hourglass figure. Needless to say, the arrival of my angel changed ALL of that! Suddenly I had stretch marks on my stomach from constantly having to lay on my left side during 3 weeks of bed rest, I had... more
Went for my consultation today! I'm 5'7, 125 lbs, 34A, mother of 2 BF kids, looking to be a D cup. Consultation went great. My PS was very informative. My decision as of now is which size and above/below the muscle. I'm looking at either 400cc silicone above the muscle, or 450cc high profile silicone under the muscle. I'm too narrow for regular 450cc implants, so the high profile are my only... more
I've been reading everyone else's posts for over a month now and have decided it is time to post my own experiences. I have my BA scheduled for October 24 with Dr. Robey in Indianapolis. She was the second consultation I went to, and I felt like she spent enough time with me and listened to what I was really looking for. The first one did not make me feel like this. I am currently a larger... more
Its just swelling, its just swelling. That's what I keep telling myself. I'm writing this with hopes of helping others. I know reading similar stories helped me be prepared and not completley freak out like I would have otherwise. Ok so I'm 20 hours post op. I had saline implants inserted under the muscle. I also had scar revision from a previous anchor lift that left residual areola tissue.... more
Dr. Eppley was running a special $4000 for total procedure. I've been thinking about getting a BA for years now. I'm 25, and finishing my final semester for my bachelors degree. I'm 5'6" and 135 lbs., size 34B but I don't quite fill it out. After having my son and breast feeding for 8 months, my breasts have lost their only redeeming quality which was their perkiness. I also gained some lovely... more
The surgery went very easily and the recovery was no where near as bad as I had expected! I had 350cc silicone implants placed under the muscle. I was back to work in 5 days. I am 3 months post op. The results are amazing and I have a new confidence that was not there before. This has been the best decision I have made!
I will be 25 June 12th, I have wanted to get my breast enlarged for a long, long time now. I was always very skinny and shapeless growing up, as I got closer to 18 my boobs grew, I was around a small C. I left for basic training, and lost weight, and breast volume. It never really came back. Throughout the years I gained 30 lbs [i needed to], I still didn't get that fullness completely... more
First I had silicone implants put in, no problems, healed pretty good. After a year I got contractures, I had to have the left implant removed, scar tissue cut out and implant put back in. At that time I decided to go ahead and have a lift done. This was one year ago. I am still on an antibiotic, under the care of a hospital plastic surgeon because the plastic one would no longer help me.... more
I had surgery 7 weeks ago. I feel I am saggy in my left side which has the lp. I like the look of the right, but was told I have a mild contracture. I was told to take Minocin for 3 months, Singular for 3 months, Ultrasound that I had to rent for 10 minutes a day for 3 months and 600 mg Ibuprofen for a month.I am wondering if it is normal to only put a hp in one side. I was told today that... more
