My breast augmentation is in less than a week. I am ready for it. It took me a while to book the appointment. Don't get me wrong I love my perky 36B's but I have a lot of room in the middle of my chest. When I wear a bathing suite or anything without a bra I have no cleavage so I am treating myself to some big ole boobies. It took me so long to finally put down my payment for surgery and pick... more
I have wanted BA since I was a teenager... I am 29 now, with two kids, and finally pulled the trigger. I had schedule 3 consultations with different surgeons in Charlotte, NC, but only made it through the first two before I chose my dr. My second consultation was amazing. The dr didn't seem rushed and was so thorough with answering my questions, even though I knew his schedule was already... more
I had what they call a Trans Umbical Breast Augmentation on 5/13/03 I had a hi pro file sm rd sal-fill from Mentor. 500 cc under the muscle
The only scar I have is in side my belly button.
I was a 34 a - which became a 34D now I am a 36D
I had 3 days of intense pain. I do not remember much from those days, I remember waking up freaking out on the nurse for touching me. I needed help eating,... more
So I've been going to consultations for the past 10 years. I guess I've just been putting it off until after I got married and had kids. I'm 28 and still am not married so I've decided that I'm tired of waiting and I'm finally just gonna go for it!I'm pretty athletic and work out a lot, so I'm not wanting to get anything too major or obvious. I'm a little worried I'll regret going too small... more
Since RealSelf reviews and experiences have been such an educational tool for me regarding my decision, along with what to expect when undergoing a breast augmentation - I thought I’d share my experience!
After being severely unhappy with my breasts for several years, I decided to proceed with breast augmentation surgery. Growing up as a tomboy, I had no concern about appearance or... more
Breast augmentation was something I had always considered, but never carried the idea further. A great friend finally helped me realize I was worth the investment!
My initial consultation went fine. For all the amazing technology my doctor's office uses, I'm not 100% sure I loved the process. I'm a VERY private person. So, standing in this room with all the technology was intimidating for... more
I had a bad severe case of asymmetry. I didn't like the large nipples. I had one, if not two, constricted breasts, and a good bit of sagging. I needed a complete overhaul so I had a lift with a lollipop procedure on the smaller side, the left, and an anchor on the bigger side, the right. I also had round silicone implants, moderate profile, added, 530 ccs on the left and 480 ccs on the... more
Dr. Ferrari and Staff were incredible to work with. I was nervous about the surgery and recovering but they were amazing and answered all my questions. A little over one week post of and so happy I made this decision. He goes through extreme effort to make sure recovery is quick and as painless as possible. more
I have always wanted boobs like the women in my family, and when they didn't come with puberty, I became discouraged. I thought that surgery was superficial and unnecessary because I'd heard "body-positive" media say so. So I just settled for being content with the androgynous body I have. I'm 21, 5'8", 115 lbs, and a 34/32 A. I'm grateful to be healthy, but I want to look as feminine as I... more
I'm 32 years old, 6'1" and 145 lbs. I have two children, ages 6 and 2. I never had a large chest and didn't want a large chest. I really just wanted what I had before kids, and maybe a tiny bit bigger....nothing crazy.
I consulted with 3 different plastic surgeons and decided on Dr. Capizzi at Stillwater Plastic Surgery. I liked his bedside manner the best and appreciated the fact that he... more
At the time of this surgery I was a 40 year old mother of two young children. I wanted to regain the fullness in my breasts that I had before having children, and to create a feminine shape to my athletic frame. Instead, I ended up with significant asymmetry and hardness in one breast. Dr. Mantooth attributed this to capsular contracture at each of my 5 post op visits, however my research... more
Having 4 pregnancies and breastfeeding 3 babies had left my breast very asymmetric. One was sagging while the other wasn't, as well as leaving them a cup size difference in size. I was very insecure with my breast and found it made being intimate with my husband embarrassing. Thankfully my husband loves me regardless of how my body looks. He was very supportive though when I told him I wanted... more
I have be wanting a BA for a couple of years. I am 5'9, 150 lbs, and currently a 34B. The Dr I have decided to go with and I discussed going with 575cc. He recommended silicone or saline. I am choosing silicone but the saline is tempting only because it is so much cheaper and less of a scar. I have been to three Drs and recently made my decision. He is a little more costly than the first two,... more
I have been considering this proceedure for about 5 years just for myself and feeling better in clothes and swim suits. Of course my husband will benefit as well, but it will make me feel better and look better. I have 2 little ones and the time is now, thank god for local family since my husband is working all weekend! I am currently an A/B cup and my goal is to have a full and perky D with... more
Hi, I am 31 years old, 5'5", and weigh 153 pounds. I have always been small chested and have always wanted bigger breast. Now the day is finally here! I am a 34 B and I am going to a full C, small D. I loved being pregnant because my boobs did get bigger, but it was short lived. Now that the time is here, I am getting really nervous.
This week I went in for my pre-op. I really like my... more
Ok, so I am 24 years old, 5ft 4in and 145 lbs, I am pear shaped and have to have a XL bathing suit bottom and XS top. I have one child, a three year old, whom I did breastfeed. I was a 34A pre-pregnancy got up to a 36b while breastfeeding, but after loosing weight post pregnancy, I am now a 34AA (sigh). I have been wanting implants since I was in middle school and everyone else started growing... more
Like everyone else on this forum I am excited/nervous for the big day. Lot's of second guessing, but I am going to go through with it. I am 48 years old and I am sure I will wish I had done it sooner. I am also scheduled for hernia repair the same day - so double whammy. I have had surgery before so I generally know what to expect post-op. I have scheduled an entire week off from work. I just... more
Okay ladies, I wasn't originally planning on posting this, but you have all been so helpful to me while I went through all this that I feel I should pay it back. It really helped me to have girlfriends (even if we've never met) to read questions and answers about your experience.
I am in my late 20's, no kids, and honestly, I had pretty cute boobs before. They were smallish, but perky,... more
