Hi all!I'm sure this "size" issue comes up ALOT..but heres another one..lol I'm 24, 5'3, 110 pounds, and wear a 32-34 A. At my consolation I decided to go with silicone 325 cc. My doctor recommended I go above the muscle....I've read that there are more problems with this method and it can look too fake as opposed to below the muscle. She said not to worry about it and with my body type its best to do it this way, but then of course I went online and read other doctor's take on it and am completely confused. So the question is: which one do you prefer and why? Do you think it looks fake below or above or at all? Obviously they may look a little fake either way...Another question is the size I'm going for. I want to be a full C. I tried both 325 and 350cc..I decided on 325 but then thought I might regret not going a little bigger..So I'm really debating this.. I have a small frame and want a natural but noticeable look..My pic is my profile pic so you can get an idea of what I've got working for me...or...NOT working for me hahaAny advice would be great! I go back to my post op in 2 weeks so I've gotta start really making a decision. Oh and I did the rice test with both sizes...Couldn't really tell a difference haha.Thanks gals!

Also, the less ccs the less complications. I think even in the 275 cc or 300 must be good for you. Just make sure they do not have a lot of gap in between when stretching your arms to the sides like mine. Maybe, because my implants are not wide enough for me.

My doctor in Greece is doing it over the muscle even with not enough breast tissue. Mine are over and when people look at them they say that it is a very good job. I was very thin and a 34 AA before but not before my kids. I was about the same before pregnancies. Breastfeeding is what ruins the breasts. Mine disappeared as well as all the weight I had got, about 40 pounds. Do it over the muscle and go with the textured silicone, less capsular contraction or whatever the over the muscle so called complications are. I do not know why most doctors do unders. I would not mess with my muscle, plus the recovery is so fast and I have heard women complaining about implants getting distorted when they move the muscle. Good doctor you have to do overs. Just make sure he does not do it because he does not know the other way. Good luck!

I've only read of girls regretting not going bigger! Im 125lb 5"2 and had 375cc under the muscle;) you're way more likely according to stats to regret it if you go smaller! Go bigger;)

It's nice to find somebody who is also going over the muscle. I keep reading where everyone had gone under and it was starting to worry me. Good luck on your surgery :) mines in four days, going with 400cc and 450cc HP over!!

From the research that I have done statistically the problems that can occur are about the same with overs and unders..this was also a concern of mine..if you have plenty of breast tissue and work out regularly (my case) then the dr would recommend over the muscle as the muscle will naturally start to push the implant to the side as time goes on...capsular constructor and bottoming out can happen with either over or under also..so if you trust your doc ,trust his/her recommendation surely he is doing what's best for your particular body type :) good luck

Thanks! I appreciate your feedback.. My husband said the same thing. I think I researched too much and got caught up in the back and forth of both over vs under.
