D/X with breast cancer in April '08. Had bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction using tissue expanders, chemo, etc. Expanders were 500cc filled to 1000cc each over a 4 month period (last fill Oct '08).
Replacement surgery was Mar '09. Expanders were replaced with Mentor silicone gel implants, 685cc, moderate height, high profile.
I was expecting these to be larger, but to me they appear rather small. Before mastectomies I was around a 36B/38A/B depending on the bra but now I barely fill an A cup bra.Was I realistic in hoping for my new 'breasts' to be larger than an A/B cup with 685cc implants after reconstruction? I've seen many photos of women who appear very flat chested who receive 350cc implants and look bigger than mine. I realize that augmentation is different but my implants are almost twice this size but still appear smaller. Any advice is appreciated.
