I've always had a poor self-image when it came to my body type ("pear" shape). I never felt proportionate, never able to "fill" my bathing suit tops and had a hard time finding dresses. Over the years I typically wore scarves and jackets to try to even out my figure. After giving birth and breast feeding I was unhappy with my breast shape. A good friend of mine went to Dr. Tantillo for... more
I have been thinking of doing this for a while, after finding this website and reading lots of reviews, blogs, looking at hundreds of photos and talking to friends who have had the procedure I decided it's now or never!
My main reasons are to fill out again... had larger breasts but somehow thy have lost there full, perky look. I am very petite and would like some curves back! The goal is to... more
I've been waiting for my buds to bloom since i was 11y, and finally after deciding we are done trying to have any more kids (i pumped for 1 year for twins), working hard for the past 6 years, "it's now or never" for this special present to myself!
I went back and forth with material and decided on saline, just for peace of mind. I visited 3 different surgeons and chose 1 that I felt... more
Just some basic info about myself, I'm 5'8" and 155 pounds, 32 years old. I like my body but am super insecure about my breasts.
I've definitely felt out of balance for as long as I can remember, having one breast that's an A cup and one B... always buying padded bras to fit the B cup and kind of just letting the little A hang out in the other cup. As I've gotten older my hips have gotten... more
My surgery is scheduled for August 15th. I'm 25 years old, 5ft 8 1/2, 125 lbs, married, no kids. I want to get implants to improve the shape and volume of my breasts, and be able to wear bikinis, and fill clothes without needing double size push up bras. I'm looking to get silicone, under the muscle through the breast crease incision.
My ps said a lift might give a better result, but I... more
After pregnancy I was unhappy with the "sag" i was a 34 B, not huge but totally livable until one day i got sick of looking at my saggy profile ... realized that at 40 I was clearly secure enough to make whatever decions i wanted. So off to the consults I went and a few weeks later I had an apt for the insertion (under the muscle) of my new 375 cc mentor round silocone implants ...... more
To regain my youthful shape.
I had my surgery 2 1/2 yrs ago and am very pleased with the results and the aftercare. He has an excellent "eye" and respects the personal preferences of the patient - my new breasts are just right in proportion and shape for my figure.
BTW, I am in my early 60's and would like to encourage older women who are considering a similar... more
The pain was the worst the first 3 days,its starting to subside but i'm still very sore.I had a baby 18 mo ago and my breasts were not the same.They were uneven and sagging.I was once a full c and after my child they were an a cup.I decided to have the surgery so that I would look and feel beautiful again. more
I wanted to get the surgery because I was very uneven and I wanted to make them even. At first I enjoyed them, but after having them almost 3 years I am becoming more and more unsatisfied with them and regretting them more. Also, I asked for a full C and ended up with one DD and one D :(Can your implants harden and become uncomfortable after having them almost 3 years? more
I had breast augmentation back in 07. I was a 36a and had saline impalnts put in under the muscle through my arm pits. I went to a 36C.Immediately after the surgery I noticed that the middle of my chest was elevated and the doctor said it was becuase it was swollen and it will go down. I knew deep down that something was not right becuase it actually felt weird but I listened to the doctor... more
Honestly,I am not happy with my new implanted breasts. I was supposed to get 325cc however,during my surgery, my Dr. decided to go with 300cc. He told me this after the surgery. I was very angry of course. He said that the 325cc would require a larger incision....It has been over three months now and my breasts look smaller. I am very dissapointed.. I do not reccomend my surgeon to anyone. He... more
I had a great experience with my augmentation. My recovery was quick and I had little pain. I had the surgery to fill out the loose skin and fill in the empty breasts having two children and gaining then losing weight left me with. I chose to get 325cc moderate plus profle silicone implants. I went with silicone to minimize rippling since I had very little existing breast tissue and a thin... more
