Hi Ladies - just curious how everyone is doing. Could you post updates with your progress?

I had a full tummy tuck and implants on 6/24 (1 month ago!) and am extremely pleased with the results. I look like a new woman! I'm 35 yrs old, 5'9", 130 lbs, two big babies and saggy 34Bs. I had 375 silicone under the muscle - inserted under the fold. It looks like I am going to be a full 36 C (just what I wanted). They look and feel fabulous especially with my super flat stomach (I actually have a waste line again).

My left breast is still a bit sensitive to the touch but my right breast is almost back to normal feeling. I massage a few times a day per PS advice.

How is everyone else doing?

That's strange....I guess I don't understand the connection between your implants falling more and you needing a lift. But regardless if you were supposed to get one and he decided not to do it then I don't see why you should have to pay for another surgery...good luck with all that.

im still hoping my implants fall just enough to were i dont have to get a lift still.

Seems to me that if you already need a lift just one month post-surgery you must have needed one before you got surgery. That really doesn't make sense. If you do in fact have to get a lift I would definitely try to get the doctor to work out a deal for fees associated with the surgical supplies, anesthesia etc...since he could have done your lift at the same time as your implants. That is what i had done.

i didnt mean to confuse you. sorry. i originally was going to get a small lift and paid for it but at last minute the doctor decided not to give me a lift thinking that the size of the implants would just be enough. he said possibly six months after surgery but today he confirmed when i had another checkup.

I too was worried about the MRI but I was told that you don't HAVE to get one every two years. My doctor told me that unless you are having issues then there is no real reason to get an MRI done. She did say that when you reach or get close to the 10 year mark it might be a good idea to consider getting one since you will need to consider a re-do sometime down the line. So I wouldn't worried too much about that. Saline also has disadvantages that should be considered as well. I'm sure after you are all healed you will love your new look.

I am 7 weeks post op. I went with saline only because i am such a worry wart. However, in 10-ish years when I need to redo my implants I will go with silicone. Everyone who has gotten them love them. All say the difference is way worth the price. But you have to consider the price for a MRI every two years as well. That was the other reason I didn't want silicone at this point in time. I can feel my implants but that is the price I'm paying for the saline. But when I say feel them, I don't mean feel every nook and crany of them. I can just feel it on the sides near my arms and underneathmy breasts near the crease. But I can live with it. My husband doesn't mind. And he and I are the only ones that are going to be looking and feeling them. Good luck making your decision. Either way I'm sure you'll be happy with your results.

I am 41 and am almost 7 weeks post-surgery. I chose silicone. After talking to my doctor and actually feeling the difference between saline and silicone I personally would not choose saline. There is no comparison to the way the silicone feel inside your body. I am so happy with my decision and my husband says they feel just like real breasts. It does take a few weeks for them to soften up and start feeling/moving naturally but it's worth the wait.

I am a 48 year old and haven't been happy with myself in many years. I am 5'0, 120 lbs, and currently a size of an AA. I am strongly considering breast enlargment, but had some conflicting information regarding saline vs silicone. Can any help me with this decision I am about to make in my older life? Thank you!

I am one day post op.just my sides r sensitive and the meds and ice packets are helping.I can't wait for the pain to go away.

Thanks I am taking it easy, I definitely don't want to set myself back by overdoing it.

Ok, I am post-op day 1 and so far so good, I feel good, I took my pain meds around the clock yesterday. and Now I only feel pressure and my pain level is about 2/10. I am waiting for the nurse to get here to check my incisions, and I only had a little bit of bleeding, it didn't soak through the bandages. It feels great to have breast though.

So happy that you are doing so well after just 1 day. It took me several days to get over the pain. But please be careful. I had a day or two that I felt very good and I got up and did a few things around the house and then ended up going through 2 more days of pain from overdoing it. I hope you continue to do well.

I am 2 weeks post op. I am loving my breasts so far!!! Pre op I wore a 34B/C. I think I wasn't filling my 34C's anymore like I should have been. My post op bra is a 34D. I'm 5'5" and 140 lbs. Though I think I've gained weight since I haven't been to the gym in weeks. I ended up with 375cc moderate plus saline under the muscle. I can feel the implants but I suppose that I can get use to it. They look great though!!!

Sleeping on my back after my breast augmentation was horrible. My doctor didn't tell me about that part of it. I found a great side sleeper pillow made by mycomfortquest that helped me sleep on my side right away. I'm 6 months post op and can sleep on my stomach too. I highly recommend getting it before your surgery. It saved my life.

I completely agree trying to sleep on my back is the worst, and being a nurse I did not think about the healing process and the intense itching around the scars, be prepared, but it is all worth it.
