Did anyone else go more modest with their implants?

I keep seeing all these beautiful photos of women who have been able to go so much larger than their starting out size, while in order to maintain a natural look, I had to stay with a very small implant size. I have Moderate Classic smooth Plus gel implants in 235ccs under the muscle. I started off at barely an A cup. My ribs measured a 34 but I barely filled a 32. My chest wall was so tight that I couldn't go any larger without looking like I would have watermellons on my chest. It was a bummer, but I understand. I just now would like to see anyone else who had the same situation or similar as mine. I am 5'5" 131 lbs and 31 years old :)

Thank you for this post! I know exactly how you feel! I had 255cc anatomical a month ago. I am 5'2, 105lbs. I'm not sure if the 255 was all I could get. I never asked. All I thought I wanted was to not wear padded bras anymore. But the 255ccs are not giving me what I want. I still look pretty flat with clothes. I'm still very happy I did it, of course. I just wished I do not have this desire to go bigger again. If I do, and it will be a few years still, I'll probably choose to go 350-400cc. Now after reading all these Real Self reviews, I am finding out that some doctors are also more conservative than others - meaning some doctors don't mind putting in bigger implants, and some are more used to putting in smaller implants. Yes, there are anatomical limits, but somehow, some girl here goes to three doctors, and comes up with three different maximum ccs. It depends on the implant type, and projection too, right? Sorry, just ranting now. :-)

During my consultation, my doctor warned me it was going to be difficult to fit me for a full C. I walked out very disappointed. I'm hopeful that when it comes time for the procedure (Nov 2014), he will be able to fit me for more than he originally estimated. I don't want to be disappointed by ending up with a B cup after all this money and stress (surgery freaks me out!!).

I understand the disappointing feeling for sure! I feel better now about how they look, but for a while I was really pretty bummed out. Hopefully you can achieve something closer to what you want just keep in mind that your doc does know best, especially if you are going for a natural look rather than a "Look at me! I had a boob Job!" kind of look :)

Your results look very beautiful :) mine stretched to a 34c when I nursed my son, but when he stopped nursing At 3 weeks old, even though I pumped constantly, my breasts quickly flattened out to nothingness. Over the years they fluctuated a bit but never more than enough to actually fill my 34a bras that I wore occasionally even though I was only 32a. I am pretty sure I will stay at a 34C which I can live with. :)

Hi. Your size looks perfect, post more photos though from the front. I went with 175cc texture silicone over the muscle. I am in Greece. I do not know why you would need a larger one. Remember, the smaller the size, the less complications.

I guess I just really want to look and feel like I got everything I could out of the money I spent. I don't want to end up being boob geedy, but I also want to look my best in whatever I want :) I have a lot more front pics in my profile! Your size looks really good, I guess I am just being too self critical :(

We're about the same, I'm 5'4, 118lbs, 22yrs old, wear a 32-34 mostly push up bra's and can hardly fill them out. I'm trying to pick my size now. I've been playing with the rice test figuring out what I want. I'm not going too big, probably a cup or two if that's not too fake and enormous looking on me. I go to have my first consult last week of July. I'm planning on going with gummy bear and above the muscle. Why did you choose to go below the muscle. Just curious, my options are still open and trying to figure out the best way to go... By the way, yours look good, about the size I want to go.

I did the rice test as well and thought I'd be able to go up to at least a 38C but I had no room in my chest wall to go that big. I wanted to do moderate plus as well, when it was decided I could only do a max of 235ccs but again because of how small I was to start and how little room under the muscle I had I could only do moderate. My PS said I could go bigger but it would be very obvious that they were not real. Soo I went with the 235ccs moderate smooth round gel implant under the muscle. I am happy I no longer look so childish but still wish I could have gone a bit bigger.

Oh and I went under the muscle due to how small I am naturally on top. I am very thin on top but larger on bottom lol Pear shape. If I were to go above the muscle the implant would have been visible very easy to feel. Under the muscle was the only option for me. Before I knew all that, I knew I wanted under the muscle just for the fact that I knew it would give me a more natural look :)

I wanted to go under the muscle, then read some articles and watched youtube videos on it trying to decide. They have me thinking I should go above the muscle. I just won't want to be able to see my impants like some pictures on other pages if I do go above. I'm not sure which one to choose, I guess me and my doctor will discuss that at my consult.

Actually they aren't moderate plus. Just moderate, figured I should fix that lol
