I had my pre op appointment yesterday and I am scheduled to have my breast lift on the 30th of this month. I am feeling very nervous about the surgery and the results.
I am also nervous about being able to take care of my toddler after surgery. I know I won't be able to pick her up for a while but does anyone have any insight of how it is to take care of a toddler after surgery?
Booked my surgery today!!! Sept 18th!!! It seems so long from now but I'm sure it will fly by. I am getting saline implants, inframammory incision, under the muscle. Biggest stressor now is size. 325cc implant overfilled to either 350 or 375. Dr and hubby say 375. :-) go figure. Lol! And after reading so many posts I think I'm leaning towards the 375. Just scared to be too big, OR to small.... more

I have been reading so many stories on here and wanted to share my own thoughts. I love the support the girls have given each other when no one else want to hear me obsessing about boobs lol. My friends are supportive I suppose but don't really want to know about ccs or profile. That's all I've been thinking about lately.
I went on a couple of consults. One doc in this area I went to is... more
I question myself if I made the right decision since I am 60 yrs old. I have fibrocysistic breasts and have had some issues. I gave my surgeon all of my mammogram and ultrasound medical reports from the past 4 or 5 yrs. I have always had low self esteem about my small breasts due to remarks made to me.
I prayed and asked God to forgive me because I feel he may not be pleased with what I... more
I have been wanting to get implants put in and the doctors I have gone seen for a consult suggest saline implants because one breast is slightly larger than the other although I could never notice even now that they have pointed it out I cannot notice anyways I wanted some feedback from woman who have saline implants in, Do you like them? I have just heard things about them not feeling as... more
Hi! I am new here. Surgery is set for December 27th. So nervous! I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. I am recently divorced and decided that it was time to repair the damage that has been done to my boobs by having 3 kids and losing weight. I am planning on saline implants under the muscle through the armpit. Still debating between 330cc or 350cc, scared about going too big.
I am 5'1" about... more
Greetings fellow boob-enthusiasts! I'm 33 years old, no kids, and no boobs. Just kidding -- I have boobs -- just not great ones. When I was in college I hit my heaviest weight of 200 pounds, which is almost 60 pounds more than I've weighed in over 10 years. I'm now 140-145 pounds at 5'8", and the boobs are rather deflated and sad looking. I've been to two consultations so far, and the... more
Dr Mark Greene is San Antonio did an amazing job with the lop sided chest I brought him. I have wanted to have breast augmentation for 10 years, and I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Greene was refered to me by a friend who also had hers done. The staff is amazing, the wait time is non existent, and I am more than happy about my results.
As a female, Im always plagued with wishing I was a... more
After having three breast tumors removed over the years, and losing weight my breasts were uneven and sagging. I had gone through a divorce and was rapidly approaching age 50, and all the exercise in the world couldn't fix my breasts. I did not want larger breasts, but wanted the natural envelope filled and the effects of gravity reversed. And that is exactly what Dr. Diana did for me... more
I have wanted a boob job for years and now im finally getting ready to do it!

I did this to make my body more proportioned and to increase my shape in clothing as well as my confidence. I was lucky and experienced little to no pain. I did not get stretch marks. My scars are minimal and continue to disappear even further. They are no longer two different sizes and they look like they go with my body more directly. Only one word can describe them: PERFECT. I feel... more
I couldnt be more happy with my implants! I had the incision put in through my arm pits. I was a 34A(if that) and got 420cc's. I am now a 34C but wear 36 C because its more comfortable at this point. more

Absolutely worth it! I Went with smooth, round, saline implants put in under the muscle and through armpit.
Do your research on your Dr and find a good one. There are so many choices. Research them all and ask alot of questions. Talk to other people who have had the procedure, and not just the referal your Dr gives you.
Dr James Landeen. He's in San Antonio. My surgery was... more
