My pre-op is scheduled for July 12th and surgery on August 3rd. Anyone else having their procedure done around that time? Curious just to find others... =)

What is the reasoning for the drains? It seems like a lot of you ladies have ended up with them but I've never really heard of people having them.. Probably cause I've never asked either hahaha I would just like to know what makes someone need them, is it a bigger implant? Im worried I'm gonna wake up with some dangly ornaments

I had drains. Because I went with gummy bear and a specific pocket was made, they wanted them to adhere in there. The less blood, less fluid, the quicker that happens. I had mine for 5 dsys. Not too bad except for the 2 times they caught on the kitchen drawers, lol 'bout ripped the out !

hi! Im having my first BA on the 26th of august. finding it difficult to imagine what I will look like. having anatomicals i think as I have no breast tissue especially no lower pole. although im worried that they will feel weird when lying down. have the option of 275MD or 315HP. I think ill go for the 315HP ( although I dunnno about the profiles will ask at my next pre op. ) currently a 34/36aa completly flat, aiming for a mid B cup

Mod profiles have a wider base, if you are petite and narrow that's when they recommend a high profile, they are narrower in the smaller sizes. HP also gives you a larger breast without the higher amount of CCs because they project more. A moderate is a "flatter wider" implant. Mod is often spoken of as the more natural appearance but some petite girls are just too narrow for them and they end up being too wide on there frame.

Good explanation. I got high profile and had to do research as to why my PS wanted those for me. Glad I did. I have a narrow rib cage. Worked for me.

I just got so confused with them myself.. Ended up giving myself a headache so I was educated by a nurse in the clinic so that I would understand haha and I got to see comparisons and stuff which helped.. It can get so confusing when you don't know the difference

I'm wider and getting an HP implant but I am getting a large implant and anything in the HP over 590ccs is the same base as a moderate. HPs give really nice results they're not a bad option to have. Some surgeons will only use HP because they get such nice results with them but again it really depends on what the woman wants to look like after as far as more natural or not

Good luck girl from what I've been told HP add fullness to the upper part of your breast and add volume or a more outward look and feel. The Moderate give a much more natural look, but won't give as much volume. I got 465cc sientra silicone HP implants and love them. I was deflated on the upper part of my breast from kids and prob gravity ha! Looked like deflated sacks. My doc chose HP to add volume to the upper part of my chest and went with bigger implant to avoid a lift. Trust your doc and your gut. Good luck!

I like that you guys are talking about HP implants, My PS actually recommends those, He said it has an excellent result !! Now I feel more confident about them.

Ya I don't think they even had hp 15 years ago with my first BA! I'm glad to be getting them cuz I like the perky look and hoping they'll stay that way this time around.

our stats are about the same being 34/36 aa prior. I went 300cc HP and love them. I like the fuller volume at the top and they don't stick out the sides of my body. I'm petite/narrow so they seem to fit my shape well. I'm about 5 weeks post op and they are really taking shape now!

Me! I am having mine done August 21st along with a facelift (second time for that, first time 10 years ago). I love my surgeon and I am excited about my surgery! (he also did a rhinoplasty on me years ago).

Hey all! It's been a while since I have posted. Life has been quite busy. So I'm 21 days post op and doing well. Left is softening and dropping nicely. Right is still high and tight. I know they will heal differently but I'm not patient at all. Anyone have residual bruising this late into the recovery process? I don't know if I am re-bruising the area when I do the massages or if it's unrelated. Thought?
