Getting the Girls I Always Wanted - Altamonte Springs, FL-breast lift

I am 42, a wife and a mother of 3 kids. I finally decided to get a much wanted and needed breast lift. My breasts sagged since I was a teenager. I have also lost 45 pounds. My surgery is scheduled on 05/09 and I am hoping to be 25 to 30 pounds lighter which will be me in range of my ideal weight. I am 5ft tall and my current weight is 147. I will be sharing my experience to help others in their journey as the stories shared here by so many have helped me make my decision.

My BL is tomorrow!! So excited and nervous

Tomorrow is the day. I managed to get down to 143 pounds not close to what I wanted but it is what it is. I am adding some preop pics, can't wait to me my new girls. I will post more about my experience once I feel better.

BL was a no go-Had to reschedule

Today was not at all what I expected it would be. Last night at around 2am I woke up with stomach pains and was vomiting and diarrhea all night, Anyway I thought it was a reaction to the Ativan I took just before midnight. I have never take anything to sleep but did so because I was told that I would help me be rested for surgery. I still managed to make it to the Dr. office and I was ready to have surgery if Dr Fiala thought it was safe. Dr Fiala decided it would be best to reschedule. He and the staff were great and even gave me IV fluids because I was dehydrated. I guess things happen for a reason so I am ok with getting this done in 8 weeks. Can't wait me meet my new girls!

Congrats on decision and weight loss !! I'm also short 5'2" I'm trying to shed the last 10 before surgery 2/13. . I'm wondering what size you are considering. I've heard anywhere from 300 to 450 cc. Since I'm getting lift and implants I want to have a nice big set of tatatass. Might as well since I'm spending the money. Preop i1/31 and will try on at that time. I've done the rice sizer and I'm leaning toward 400/450. It's nice to see women in 40-50 age group doing this. We are few here! My best to you. Good luck sweetie.

Hi, it is good to share this journey with others and encourage each other. It is a very emotional experience. I am currently a 36DD my PS recommended no implants and I agree because I m big enough. But I know that when I drop 25 pounds I will be down to a full 36C and I would like to be a D. He is also removing skin which will make me smaller. I am going back in April to have a consult and then decide if I should go with implants. If I do I would keep it under 300cc because you have to also consider the bigger the implants the more stress it puts on the lift. Let me know how it all goes.
