So I'm starting this a little late. I have been reading reviews on here for the last 2 months. I was nervous, but really wanted this done. My husband was very supportive, but I really needed reassurance that this was the right decision for my life. This site helped me a lot to finally go through with it.
Lets start with a little about me. I am about 5'8 and 142 lbs. I have 2 boy( 4 and 8)... more
I have been lurking around the RealSelf website for a while now and can not thank all of you enough who have shared their stories. It is so helpful to read what other people are having sucess/trouble with. On 12-12-12 I had breast implants without a lift per my docs request. He said I have enough tissue to give me fullness without doing a lift. So ofcourse I went with his suggestion. I was a... more
I am 35 years old and mother of 2 teenage boys. I did not breast feed nor did I get the full breasts like other women when I was pregnant. I am a small B and have always wanted bigger. All of my female family are big hipped and small chested. Out of the 7 of us 5 have had implants and look great. Not wanting to finance I have finally got the "spare"money to go forward with the... more
I am still happy that I had implants just now concerned about them. I had very little pain and a good experience. I do wish I had gone a little larger. I would also consider silicone if I ever have them replaced.I recently went to my surgeon because my implants had ripples in them. I thought it was because of weight loss. The surgeon said I had capsular contraction. The next thing I knew my... more
I had 425cc breast inmplants under the muscle on both sides as well as a lift on both about 4 months ago.I am now experiencing what I think is "double bubble" on one, and the other seems to have come out from under the muscle. They are uneven and basically messed up.When I went for a follow up, I was told I'd probably have to pay for reconstruction of both. I am extremely frustrated... more
I had breast implants along with a tummy tuck done at the same time. I was not happy with either procedure. AT ALL!
My breast after having children began to sag. I breast feed both children. I wanted to have the fullness back in my breast and the excess skin removed from being pregnaunt.
I researched for 2 yeasrs prior to having these surgeries. I picked the doctor who was most qualified.... more
In 1995, I had breast implant surgery at the age of 40. I used saline implants and for 10 years, I was the happiest woman on the planet. I felt desireable, sexy, healthy and loved my body for the first time I can ever remember.
In 2005, I participated in a clinical research trial at a Nashville teaching hospital for silicone Inamed implants. The effects were profound and horrific. I... more
I would have loved knowing a major difference in going under the muscle or over. I chose to go under so I could get a better reading on mamograms and so I would not sag as fast. everytime I get up out of a chair, or am passed something of any weight my breasts pop out like I am flexing my muscles!! If I were to climb a ladder from a pool, they would pop out noticably after I... more
