Hi, how are you doing. I'm planning on going 450-500 cc's but I hear some people say they regret going so large after a while. Do your breast get in the way? Hope all is well!

Oh GREAT information Because I think you look BEAUTIFUL! Please let me know what you decide! I hear that alot about everybody wishes they had gone a tad bigger I think since you are SO beautiful I will stick with you I will go High profile too and maybe 600 too! I was thinking 550 but maybe I will go for it~ the 600~ great advice thank you for sharing you have an amazing body~

Maria I am with you If I am reading you write I would want my nipple lifted up higher too! I don't think it a natural or fake look it a perky and more youthful look your looking for right? Thanks why you just went through all this right? well for me in m in my opinion. My surgery is next week and I want mine up and centered at well too! So I hear you and I agree with YOU! Did you get High profile or moderate?

Yes mine were like that too. Sore at night and in morning until I massaged them. And I kept thinking that one was harder than the other. But now I think they feel the same. And my right is still higher than the left. I'm 6 weeks and 3 days post ip now.

I think you have achieved a good result and I'm surprised the surgeon placed the implant under the muscle considering how much breast tissue you had. I was advised this couldn't be done unless having a breast lift at the same time as this can create the double bubble look or implant bottoming out. But then again you have gone with a bigger implant to fill out the skin and like you said if you need a lift you can get that done at a later stage. Sometimes the more consults you have the more questions you have. Information overload,,,. You must of been in quite a lot of pain going under the muscle with a big implant, although sounds like your over the worst of it. Yes I will keep you posted. I'm still not sure what my decision is. I will have the procedure this December so a little while away still. It's just a matter of finding a surgeon I feel comfortable with. I may possibly decide to have the operation here in Australia instead of Thailand as a breast lift is a fairly complex procedure. I will be up for $17K for both procedures. It's a lot of money, it seems to be much more expensive over here then anywhere else no wonder all the Aussies are heading overseas.
