That Is my... more
Wanting an increase in size, a D or DD. By VS standards I'm 34C. I didn't breastfeed, but my boobs have always been a little smaller to me, maybe because of my height and build. I just don't think I'm big enough when I look at myself naked.
I have my first consultation next week to get an idea of how many ccs PS thinks would be good for me. I'm going to see Dr. Rottler. Can't wait!
Do Not go to see Dr. Judith Gurley for your plastic surgeon needs!!! I am an RN and I truly believe she has emotional issues. NOT WHAT YOU WANT WITH A PLASTI SURGEON WORKING ON YOU!!! I was extremely disappointed with how she handled my post operative care. I met her once for my consultation and felt she was nice, supportive, professional, and confident in her surgical abilities due to all... more
I had never been able to fill out a dress or tank top without having a strapless bra underneath for padding. One day while wedding dress shopping I got fed up and made a promise to myself to at least research breast augmentations and see if it was a realistic procedure for me. I work 40 hours a week as a level one trauma RN and couldn't afford to take a prolonged period of time off of work. I... more
I was extremely nervous about my surgery but Dr. Prada did a great job at putting me at ease. He was extremely professional and wonderful to work with. I was comfortable knowing that I was in great hands. My surgery went well and the recovery time was minimal. I went from a size 36B to a 36D and could not be happier with the results. My right breast was almost a full cup size smaller than the... more
I haven't always hated my small breasts. In fact I was very happy with their small size (34A). Then I had a beautiful baby girl... I was very young when I had her and my body snapped right back to normal. My breasts grew and shrank and recovered well. I had 2 more baby girls and still seemed to snap right back to my original body, even after breastfeeding. I entertained the idea of a BA... more
I'd met my surgeon about five years ago when I went in for a consult for a possible tummy tuck. I chickened out but then in February of this year I went in and discussed BA. Long story short, its scheduled and paid in full! I'm scheduled next week, 325 cc on the right and 350 on the left silicone implants. Hopefully high profile. That's what we tentatively decided on anyways. I'm 5'8, 135 lbs... more
I am 5'3", 120lbs (though usually more like 110), naturally a 34A (barely). I usually need push up pads just to fill out my bra properly. *sigh* I am due with our third child this fall. So no BA for awhile. We are moving this fall too (from overseas back to US) so I'd be putting off my BA for awhile anyhow.
One of the most confident times of my life was when I had big, full, lactating... more
Dr. Prada is an AMAZING surgeon!!!! My breast augmentation could not be any more perfect!!! I'm 28 years old, no children, and started with a 32A bra size. I explained that I would like around a D cup, he recommended a mid profile silicone implant under the muscle for the most natural look and that the incision would be best under the breast. I'm so happy that he recommended those things, I... more
I got my implants in 2012 I was 24 now I'm 26 I love them so much !! Dr Lund is great the staff is amazing and everything is well ... All my post op appointments were well and dr Lund is really nice ..it was all worth it and I tell everyone they should go to dr Lund I'm so very happy and pleased with everything
It's been a year and 8 months I've had no issues I took my vitamin e for a year... more
I decided for my 30th birthday present and the final decision that we were done having kids, that I would have a breast augmentation. After nursing all 3 kids, I was down to an A cup. I didn't want anything drastic, just something that looked natural on my body. I had never been bigger than a B cup prior to kids, so I was shooting for a full C cup.
Dr. Kofkoff and Teresa were absolutely... more
I, as many others, have thought about getting a breast augmentation for many many years. I have always suffered some insecurity with my body because I am a very very petit girl. I'm only about 5'5 , 100 lbs. my breasts never fully developed, and I was stuck with a 32AA cup size. I could not fit into bras or swimsuits and it made things very hard for me to go out in public in a bikini. I made... more
I had breast augmentation done in 1998 by Dr. Huffaker, the results were amazing. I took the doctor's advice about size and was thrilled that I did. This was done in an outpatient surgery center and went home late in the afternoon. The second surgery was in 2012, I opted for silicone implants this time and again amazed at the wonderful results. more
I wanted to do this for years! After losing 52 lbs and my breast I decided now was the time. I researched several docs and dr. Huffaker was who I decided on. I was not a but nervous but full of excitement. Surgery went great, came home that same day. Had minor pain evening of surgery, took the pain pills and it was smooth sailing! The next day I was up and moving and have not had a bit of... more
Hi ladies. I have bee on here for a while but have been posting in the "Revision" are due to having CC of the right breast. I decided to also include a post over here because I feel my story could also contribute to those considering risks to implants and to show it all part of the process. Breast implants are a life long commitment.
So to give a quick rundown of my journey.
In 2003, I... more
I am living in a bit of a boob fog lately. I have never looked at boobs so much - is this what men feel like?! Poor dudes. My search history is a basic run down of tata-terms, many splendid bra sizes, celebrity measurements (trying to compare) and an endless before and after showing.
My surgery is set for this coming Thursday, I'm paid in full, and I think I have almost all the major details... more
I started with a 34a (probably a 32 but 34 was easier to find). I breast feed for 6 months one baby. Overall, I didn't hate my boobs. They didn't look horrible. I just wanted to wear clothes where I didn't have to stuff everything to make it look like I wasnt super flat. My ps never gave me a size. I saw him twice. I told him my goals but he would not say what size he'd put in or what size I'd... more
I had breast augmentation with silicone (400 cc) just 3 weeks ago and the result is amazing. Dr. Kofkoff and his staff are very helpful and caring. All of my questions were answered and I felt I was in good hands. With his rapid recovery method I had no pain and very little discomfort. I am amazed at how easy my first three weeks have been! more
I had what may have been described as the worst asymmetry this office has seen. I have dealt with this my whole life and have been absolutely mortified of ever having it looked at to see if it could be changed because I never wanted to remove my bra or shirt. I spent years hiding it and did a pretty good job of it because not many people knew. When I finally worked up the nerve to go in and... more
Hello! I'm a 46 year old mother of three, 5'0 and 105lbs. I had a BA when I was 19 that took me from a B to a D (I was in pageants and hate that I got a BA so young, in retrospect). My implants were recalled but I never got the message because my doctor at the time never registered them. After complications, I had an explant and no reconstruction. Fast forward 13 years. I just got new... more
