Just had my 3 rd ba on 4/25/12 and I told the dr I wanted to be a dd from a small d. Well I am going on two weeks post op and I am still able to wear my old bra and not too mention no ONE single person knew I had this done. I went from 425 cc to 540cc . The dr said 600 was too much and were folding during surgery so I am wondering why he did not try 575 or even 580. I want him to add the difference now and don't feel I should be charged for this.... What to????

Not big enough
This is not uncommon.You may want 600 but I alwasy tell my patients it is the doctors decsion and you can';t put a gallon of milk in a quart container.To go from the size you were to 540 is a big change trust me.
Can't Notice Any Change Aftr Third B. Aug. What Shld I Do?Answr:
If you still feel you are not big enough then 40cc (580cc) more would not have made a difference...You would have needed over 600 and your surgeon said that it simply would not have fit and must have felt it would lead to more complications...

Size After Third Breast Augmentation
You are much too focused on bra cup sizes, cc's and the opinion of others. You have now had 3 surgeries and you didn't mention the appearance of your breasts at all. I think you really need to step back and ask yourself what is your goal, is it realistic and are you doing this for yourself or for the attention and approval of others? If your surgeon felt that your anatomy did not allow for the placement of a larger implant then you should be thankful for his good judgement. Adding an additional 40cc will make virtually no difference in the how your breasts look and, in my opinion, would not justify a return to the OR.

I always warn patients that cup size does not always correlate with the volume used for implants. A greater than 100 cc difference should produce a noticeable change. Talk it over with your surgeon.
