Feeling More Confident of Cc Size but Still Very Anxious! - Atlanta, GA

I am having my BA done a week from today. My surgeon has suggested I get 457 cc & silicone implants above the muscle. My husband & I are a little aprehensive about them being too large. I am only 5' & 109 lbs. However, I am a current deflated 36 B so I think I have alot of extra tissue or sag that he may be taking into account that I may not know. I do trust my surgeon so much because he performed my tummy tuck & it turned out great. Just thought I would get others to weigh in with their opinions. Thanks! So excited!

I had my pre-op yesterday. It looks like we're going through w/ 457cc. Doc says they will be big but nice. OH my goodness! So excited, nervous, anxious!! Lol! I just hope I don't look unproportionate!

So today is the day after my surgery. From what I can tell I really love them but hope they don't go down too much with the swelling. The boobs them selves haven't been bad at all but holy cow the lipo of my is what's killing me. But I know it will be worth. Thanks for all the advise & words of wisdom from you all. I will be posting pics along my journey. Thanks everyone!

OMG I am absolutely loving my breasts! It's driving me crazy that I have to keep this sports bra on all the time because I want to look at them & try things on. Did anyone else have this problem with the waiting for post-op game? I have taken my bra off a couple times to look at them but put it right back on. That's not so bad is it? I found some bras from when I was bigger before breast feeding & want to try them on but am scared. I will say this when I take the sports bra off they are SO HEAVY!

I just can't wait to see them without the bandages. I'm pretty sure the doc gave me a peri-aoral lift too so that's why I want to see so bad. I think I'm going to be obsessed w/ my boobs! LMBO! I've started back light activity today which is 5 days post-op. Like light laundry. Do you think that is ok?

I'm posting another picture and want to see what everyone thinks. If anyone wants to see w/ no bra let me know bc. I would love to hear your opinions & I'll be glad to pm a pic to you. Thanks boobie gals!!!

The lipo has been the worst part of all this. I'd love to hear opinions on how they look so far! Thanks! :)

I heard one being larger than the other is normal and they will soften up and look normal. Your PS did a great job. I'm 7 weeks post op and the soreness did subside but it still comes and goes. Mostly happens in the morning and not so much during the day. I'm new to this too. But it gets better. Good luck

So you had a BA too? you look great! When did your soreness subside?
  • Reply
YES :) i did!!! tummy tuck and implants were christmas present from my husband. My implants are sub muscular so it took the soreness a while, atleast a month. I was also a little apprehensive with my cc size too. I was not symmetrical so I had 430 in one and 490 in the other. Now they match... Hehe. I'm 5'4. 128lbs. I'm 35 mother of 2 boys. I live my size now. FYI don't go out shopping for real bras any time soon. Have been twice no luck yet and not comfortable.

I am 3 weeks post op from a BA. I went from a sagging 36 b to a 475 cc under the muscle saline. I love them, but I have a numbness around my breasts and nipples. Has anyone experienced this before?
  • Reply
I'm sure that is normal. But I am only 1 wk post-op so it's probably too early for me to weigh in. Good luck!

I am 3 weeks post op and have lots of numbness in the same areas as you so I think it is normal, my surgeon said to expect this and it should wear off by 6 to 8 weeks as the nerve endings heal up.

So this is weird I have numbness in the left nipple but not the right.
  • Reply
I hope it does. I'm 4 weeks post op now, and I still have it. It feels funny.

My left one was numb for a few months. My left one gave me problems. The right one has always been fine. Feb 23 will be 1 yr since my BA. I have feeling in the left one now. The only thing is I believe I have a large air bubble between the implant and the muscle. I would also get sharp pains that would shoot thru both. More so the left one. I guess it was just the nerves growing back together. It gets better. I was numb on my left one from the nipple down. I think it took about 6-8 months to go away.

Thanks for the info! My PS said it should go away in 6-12 months. How did you suspect that you have an air bubble?
  • Reply
It felt like a few spots then it's kinda like they merged into one big one. When I lay down I feel it move. It always stays up high (if that makes sense) like air rising. Its hard to put into words. I though it had burst but my DR said it was air. He said the body does not take in air so it would have to work it's way out. I guess there is no time limit on when it will go away. It is REALLY annoying though.

How are you doing?

I started with a deflated B and some extra skin .. not quite as much skin and breast tissue as you and went with 457 ccs, silicone, moderate profiles. They are great .. I actually wish I went bigger. They are TOO easy to cover up LOL! Good luck! :) xoxo

I'm swollen now & love the current size so I'm really hoping I don't wish I had gone bigger by the time the swelling goes down. I can't wait to see them w/ out bandages!!!
  • Reply
Aw! Lol. They say you lose a cup size once the swelling is all done but every one is so different. I think I am still having boob greed. Can't wait to see them without the bandages either lol!! Whoo hoo!
