Today is my 3rd day recovering from my surgery, I had male breast enlargement, done and I am very unhappy with size so far. I had been considering this surgery for sometime, which gave me a chance to look for a decide on a surgion, after carefull consideration I found 2 on my area that had experience in this procdure with other men. I had been wearing forms for many years and started wearing them full time for 4 mos to make sure I OK with the surgery. I spoke to both surgions with my forms on, I chose one, and we discussed placement, types and sizing of the implants. I had been wearing a small to  modest forms and was comfortable with them, at the pre op visit we set on a size range, however leaving the final decision to my Doc as how they would look in me while I was on the table. I am beside myself!  they are HUGE! these can't be the size we discussed I'm sure it it  they are way too large even taking in consideration for swelling. Even my sister who is use to seeing me with my forms on (and is helping me these past few days). Thinks they are way big, I dont know what to do? I am scared, suprised, upset and still in alittle pain though the pills help alot. My question is what and how to I approach this with my Doc when I see him for my post op visit I want to screem! I don't know. He knew what I was wearing and we discussed the look I wanted I was wearing a 38B small C    depending on the bra which my forms filled completely, these are no way that size they look and feel way bigger. please help

Ames, I am transsexual, I have never posted that on here before, I have had 3 breast augmentations and each time they were never big enough, I also had problems with my surgeon who did them the first two times, he first used the wrong implants and he didn't even know it. I am lucky my sister is a surgical nurse and told me to request my medical records because something didn't look right. I can say in your surgeons defense, that he probably thought he was saving you another surgery as all my TS friends always want them bigger. I am not assuming your TS because you referred to yourself in the male pro-noun and I don't judge. My only advice is give it time, you might also want to try milk thistle and vitamin E to help your implants stay soft. Also watch your skin very closely and keep it moisturizer on your breasts because going from no breasts to a D, I know I got some stretch marks. I am now 36 FF

Hi guys I am doing ok, I am getting a crown done. I was wondering if anyone knows any effects with implants and dental work? My dentist asked about them but didn't day anything else. I went to see another ps regarding exchanging for smaller implants. He said I should wait a few more months to be sure, gave me a price of 6000. To exchange, or 4200 to remove them plus if any accruing work is needed due to my skin stretching. I feel that's a lot,

Ames - I know my doc said I could not have a deep cleaning until my pocket formed and even then I am supposed to start antibiotics 3 days before I have my deep cleaning and continue them for several days after. Good luck! xoxo

Well its been 4months since o had my implants. I'm not getting anywhere with my ps. He is still sticking to view, for the most I think they have settled in I am a c or d depending on bra I have intouch with another ps to consider going smaller but money is a factor after paying for these plus now I need a crown for one of my back teeth so that is now a bigger priority so it looks like I will have them a lot longer :(

well to answer your question they are starting to settle a bit, I have noticed that they have got a little softer now so hard and firm as they were after surgery and are not quite as high up on my chest. However once the swelling went down they have not changed size or got smaller at least as far I am have noticed

Oh no! :( Have they settled or gotten smaller since you posted this??!

When I had mine done my chest was ENOURMOUS! But about 4 weeks later the swelling went down and the implants settled. Id say they lost about 2 cup sizes after healing. So dont fret...youll love em in a little while.

I'm sorry you're so concerned about your size. Have you brought this up with your surgeon and asked for an explanation?
