Ive hit a weird place, at 4 weeks post op i was feeling good, but since then ive noticed that my breasts have gained volume and i dont think its my imagination.  Ive noticed that they have gradually started to "drop" but they really havent gotten any smaller since my surgery.  Im also confused because I am still fitting into my old bras.  Although when I was trying on new bras a couple weeks ago, i was fitting into B/C cups.  Now im just afraid to try on new bras since ive been feeling bigger.  Im also noticing that alot of the volume is out to the sides, so if I was to wear something with out a bra, I have alot of "side boob"...Its just so frustrating when you dont know what the heck is going on!  I noticed that alot of woman seem to have this issue  after their sugery, they fit into their old bras and seem to be a D cup even tho they were very specific about being a B or a C cup

Please someone tell me I am going to feel better soon, I am only 21/2 weeks, I am still so uncomfortable, swollen on both sides, my nipples are itchy, the incision under my breasts feels like it's so tight and I am losing it. Wear sports bra or dont' wear anything, either way is the same. How long before I start to feel better???

sometimes i think PSs are NOT so honest with a patient.My PS told me flat out they will drop you will not have fullness at the top the will eventually hang again possibly sooner than what i would ve liked he told me i will not like the size and i will not like the shape of my breasts..and i told him ok ill see ya April 10 ..when he came in to mark me up he started it again and i just had to console him ..lol!! i know they drop more often than not ..are you fixing to start your period....i know my breast went bonkers went my time of the month came around like inflatable tubes were placed in them invisibly some how!!! also my pS told me that if i go without a bra often they will take on there own shape ...These are not Breast augs where they never move they will bounce change shape all that i wanted the look of a breast aug my PS sent me home and told me to get more realistic!! lol in your last pics you looked AMAZING!!!!! AMAZING!! I hope you starst feeling better..heck i think it was you who stated about the period thing in your reviews that made me be aware of how crazy they can swell i will have to go check ..i have read so many and you all have helped me so much stay strong and again i really hope you starst to feel bettter

It seems many are feeling like there was not enough removed during surgery. My BR was 4 months ago and although I seemed smaller 2 months ago than I do now I am happy with my new size. I had 3 lbs 2 oz removed total and am a C cup now. My breasts had no "lift" 8-10 weeks ago and now they have "fallen" to where I can lift them up a bit if that makes sense. They also look a little bigger than they did in Feb thru early April, but I have not gained weight... I think they are in the final healing stages and I like the overall shape and symmetry and size. I think it is VERY unfortunate that so many women here are not happy with the PS... and I don't quite understand why someone who was an E, F, G, or H cup could not be surgically reduced to a D cup if they made it clear pre-op that's what they wanted. It is a major and traumatic operation to go thru only to look like you barely had anything removed... but please give it a full 4-6 months to know your final results.

I am almost six weeks po, and yes i fit my old bras..although the cup is somewhat looser..at first i was freaking out..i kept looking at my before pics and saying yes all of that is gone...but the truth is, the bras we were wearing before were probably not the right size. We poured ourselves into bras that did the job..we need to be patient..which i am not really..and let the process of healing and swelling continue..i hate my side boob...but not letting anyone touch me with a scalpel for awhile!! Hang in there..oh and dont go bra shopping..it is to early in my opinion..i started pulling underwires from my old ones..until i am ready to go..shopping made me depressed..guess i will continue with sports bras till i am fully healed...good luck

I am 5 days post op. started at 42g and the sports bra I am wearing rite now is 44h. I know they are different brands but I am so upset. I go from being so mad at the surgeon to crying uncontrollably. I trying to believe they are going to go down in swelling but I cant get over the feeling I may have done this for nothing.
