Hi RealSelf community!
Over the past few weeks, this website has helped me a lot with my research for breast augmentation and what to expect. I feel like I should give back to all of you and share my experience. I am going to make these entries very short and sweet, because that's what I would have liked to have seen more here :) Unfortunately, I will not be displaying pictures (I'm sorry, I... more
I was a full C before kids and a full D while breast feeding 2+ years. After I shrunk to one barely A cup and one A 1/2 cup haha. Uneven and tiny. Very sad. So I fixed my boobies and so far the process has been easy and I'm enjoying the results. Look forward to seeing them get better and better more
Pre-op I had about a 32 A. They were significantly uneven and small. I wanted to fill out and most of all not feel the need to wear a padded bra anymore! I had the procedure 2 days ago and today is the first time I'll be able to remove my bandages and actually see my new boobs! I'm nervous because I've been wanting this for years now.... I went with smooth, round saline. 260cc moderate profile... more
I've always been small chested and have always wanted larger breasts. Dr. Yang gave them to me. They look beautiful, no complications, beautiful incisions. I got 457 cc silicone under the muscle with crease incisions. Recovery was not bad with the exception of the first few days. Very happy with my results more
In September 2012 I decided I was finally going to get my boob job. I wanted to go to someone in DC because I live in the middle of nowhere and knew i would be able to find better doctors. I came across Dr. Khalifeh's office when I was searching around on google. I called and set up my consultation and paid for everything on the spot. It came out to be 6k. I was so excited to get it done... more
I have never had surgery before... So, hence I was very hesitant. But Dr. Barry Cohen is the MAN!!!!!! I mean that with all my heart. His bed side mannerism, was on point, he made me laugh all the way up until I was laying on the operating table. He is just simply amazing... words cannot describe the feeling of comfort that a person can give you to make you feel relieved.
Welp... It just... more
So I'm really excited to finally be getting my implants. I wanted them way before I was ever legally allowed to get them. I've always been active in sports--the last few years it's been yoga though, so that has left me very petite on top. However, I have a very muscular structure and a big butt, so I don't feel that my upper body is proportionate to my lower body. I have the most difficult... more
Dr Widder did my Breast implants in 1997 and they were great! I have had no issues at all.
3 years later I moved to Arizona and had a child, I gained 80 lbs and they still looked perfect after gaining and losing all the pregnancy weight. It has been 15 years now and I think I may be ready for a lift and new implants. But might wait another couple of years since they still look so good. more
I've been wanting breast aug since Dec 2011, but always wanted bigger breast since high school. I'm a 30 yr old mother of 2 & after breast feeding my kids, my breast completed deflated, areola disoriented in size, and looked horrible! Blessed my boyfriend who thought that my breast are beautiful and didnt think I needed breast aug, but he was supportive of my decision.
So I was a... more
After breast feeding my first child, the size and 'look' of my breasts changed and I wanted to feel beautiful again. Who says a mom can't look sexy? :) So I had a lift and augmentation too; and my breasts look very natural. Many of my girl friends can't even tell I have implants. I went from a small B to a large C which fits my 5'7" frame better. I feel wonderful! more
Ever since high school, I have been the same size, a 34 AA. I am 5'7" and weigh roughly 150 lbs, so it doesn't really suit me well.
I have been researching getting a BA for about 2 years now, and am finally getting it done in about 2 weeks! I want to achieve a fuller, more natural look, and become somewhere in the "C range". My clothes don't fit me well, and I am... more
I have always been self conscious of my small breasts, and wanted a better intimate life with my husband. I have no cons to mention of my breast augmentation; it was very worth it. My results are very natural, and my doctor and his staff, and the hospital staff, were amazing. more
“Do it…. If you are reading this, you are probably trying to make a decision about plastic surgery. I was in your shoes too, except now, I have perfect breasts! :) But seriously---- Dr. H and his staff are FABULOUS. I’m a single mom of one, so I have to admit I was very worried at first. But, then you walk into their very relaxing spa- like office, meet the smiling staff,... more
[The amount spent is the total of two separate operations combined.]
I first got saline implants back in '93 - I went from a droopy A cup to a modest B. The surgeon, who now practices in Dubai, was very conservative in his approach. He did a very nice job but I still envied other women who filled out larger bras. However, no one was able to figure out that my breasts weren't real.... more
Experience was wonderful but now my boobs are a little to extreme now being a mother of two and they just get in the way.A year ago I have breast augmentation. I have 850 cc of saline in my implant and two kids later my breast seem to get in the way. I would like to get an implant exchange for 250 ccs. is this possible and what are the risks involved. Will my boobs ever look normal again?... more
Love my implant it is just big for my lifestyle. I wanted more fullness. I have to choose clothing well, because I am small and will look top heavy if I don't.I had implant silicone mentor 350HP in February of this year. It is too big for my lifestyle and frame (5'3 114pounds). I am waiting at least six months before I ask my surgeon to change implant- would like to change to 275 or 250... more
First of all, let me clarify--the amount I spent ($10,000) was for TWO sets of implants and two surgeries. $5,000 each. The reason I put the $10,000 was to point out the problem with going with too small an implant the first time and also getting saline the first time.
I had 280ccs saline over the muscle the first time--I was a saggy, deflated B before and ended up a full 36C/sometimes D.... more
