Hi! I'm new on here. I just went for my consultation today. I'm 5' 5" , 122 lb & right now I'm lucky to fill up a 34 A after my 3rd baby! I don't know what happened after that last one, they still looked good after the first two! LOL! I want to go to a 34C, my PS recommended 400cc silicone. I tried a few in the office, I would have thought that would have seemed too big but it didn't. I don't want to regret it later & wish they were a little bigger, but I don't want to think they look to huge for me either. She thought this seemed good, so did my hubby, who is also a Dr. I know a lot of you have already been through this process so I would love some of your thoughts. Thanks!

I am 5'3 150lbs. Barely an Acup. I am going to get 400cc saline under the musle, filled to 450cc. I emailed my consultant with the sizing question and she said the Dr will fill the implants up as much as he could, safely, but to also keep in mind that he still has to be able to close me up afterward.

SoCalBA- what are your stats? im 5'8 112lbs. I was a 32/34 A pre op. I had my surgery three weeks ago today. I got 450/475 silicone high profile under the muscle. I am very happy with my results. Well, i will be once my implants drop and fluff. It all really depends on your own measurements of course. I am currently wearing a 34 D bra but they may go to a 34 DD once they drop all they way. I wear all my same clothes even my tighter T-shirts still fit. I have pictures posted in my profile, that may or may not help you. Happy researching!!

im barely an A cup so 450cc might be enough. I hate the fact that we arent sure exactly the size that we'll end up being lol

Ya its a lil annoying but hard to be exact too many variables. At my consult my spouse and I had come to the conclusion of 400. She said the 450 made me look too barbie. Which it is a huge change. Deff not barbie doll ish but enough that I deff have a lot of clothes(button ups and blazers for businessy clothes that no longer fit. ) I litterly made the change to 450cc 30 seconds before they knocked me out for surgery.

What size where you before? What size are you now? Did you lose any volume? Although at my consultation we agreed to 450cc I am thining of maybe going up to 475cc or 480cc just in case I lose volume. My main concern is being unhappy with the size.
