I've always had very small breasts but after inflating to D cups and back down again with each of my 3 kids I was left with deflated, droopy, skin that I squished into a 32A/B depending on the brand. It wasn't until very recently that it really started bothering me when my clothes were all baggy at the top but fit everywhere else. The strapless padded push up bra I bought for summer was the... more
I have been toying with the idea of implants for a few years now. One of my girlfriends had hers done and after I saw how easy her recovery was I started doing research. I was intrigued by the gummy bear implants and because so few doctors offer them at this point that is what lead me to Dr. Burgdorf. I also chose him because his consultations are free, and for one, it saves you money but,... more
This is it. The last 5 months have been a test not only to my strength but to my sanity as well. After dealing with the struggles of life, Ive finally decided to do something for myself and get the breasts I've always wanted. My surgery is 10 days away. Im so incredibly excited but a little nervous as well. I've always been very self conscious of the size of my breasts barely filling a 34A cup... more
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
