Check out a few after-surgery silhouettes from the RealSelf community featuring saline, silicone, a variety of profiles and some varying volumes.

What She Chose: 240/235 cc moderate plus profile saline
What She Says: "And, while I don't want to get caught up on cup sizes, I didn't want to be a D cup... I know, I'm not the norm here. Anyone ever drop in bra sizes when their implants descended?"

What She Says: "Having never owned a Victoria's Secret bra before, it still hasn't hit me that I will be able to walk in that store with confidence and be able to wear a "big girl" bra, instead of [the] tiny little training bras I was used to..."

CovetingSmallPerkyBreasts
32 DD cup to C cup (implant revision)
What She Chose: 280 cc moderate profile tear-drop shaped silicone
What She Says: "I wanted to be SMALL and PERKY and Jennifer Aniston/Blake Lively-looking, with the ability to wear a see-through top (around my house) and not think twice... so far, so good."

Or Round...


GoBigTallGirl
36 B cup to 36 DD cup
Who She Chose: 616 cc round moderate profile silicone
