I'm an  36C, been this way since 18 and stayed this say after our four children, however I have a lost all my "fat" from the top of my breast after my last child breast fed for 2.5 years. I'm getting my op done on the 19th of this month and I just don't know what to do.  Dr said I can do either on and can tell him what one I want the day of op.   Cost isn't the issue at this point (also getting a tummy tuck) so whats another 1k.    I have told my Dr I don't want "look at me" breast  (I live in Vegas and seems everyone wants the look at me ones"  I want "my" breast. he did warn me that I may end up a little bigger but it wont be so noticeable, maybe pushing a D.    Input welcome

I know that silicone is more used than saline, but depends a lot from person to person, how's their conformation and also about what the doctor says.

How did they turn out? I plan to get mine done in about a year and can't decide if I want saline or silicone.

I had saline implants for 9 years and I LOVED them. Unfortunately one of them sprung a leak a few weeks ago and I decided to switch them out to silicone when I had my surgery last week. I couldn't decide whether to stay with the saline or switch to silicone. This is what ultimately changed my mind: My Surgeon indicated that in his experience a lot of women who have saline, once they get pregnant, there are too many changes that go on in the breast and the saline implants can break. Since I am 27 and right before that child bearing age I decided to go for Silicone. Either way good luck with your surgery!!
