But I am SO happy to get the opportunity. So, a few details about my body, I am 21 years old 5 ft 5 115 pds, size 32 a. Goodness, all the women in my family are more than filled out, so I always wondered why I was lacking so much. My mother told me she had less than I did when she was my age (yeah...as if that is even possible lol) but when she had all 5 kids her breasts finally came in, and now shes a 34c, lucky her. I don't want to wait until I have kids, maybe they would come in, maybe not. So I thought breast augmentation would be my best bet, I'm more of the "I want things to happen now" type of person. ;)

So after years of not feeling feminine I finally decided I'm gonna do this, and on February 1st I went to visit Dr. Dustin Reid. I feel fortunate I found my doctor so quickly and on the first try, I didnt have to "shop around" but I owe that to this site, he had the best reviews of the doctors in my area and I was very happy with his before and after photos, I felt like I was making the right decision with him.

When I did go on the first visit, after I was explained about the different implant types and tried on a few sizes, I initially went with 350 cc's silicone gel sub-muscular, it just seemed to fit me the best I thought, then the more I went on this site and saw the before and afters and kept seeing how a lot of the women here wish they would have gone bigger, I went March 2nd for a second fitting and decided on getting either 380 or 410cc's, the doctor would decide during surgery which looks more natural, which I LOVE, because both sizes would be good. They looked a little big, but I'd rather go a little big than too small anyway, so we'll see :) I have my pre op on April 5th and my surgery is set for April 19th, it feels so far away! I'll keep you posted!

17 more days until my surgery, I wasn't nervous before and now I definitely am, I feel like I don't have everything ready, I stopped taking my multivitamin per my PS request, and just loading up on vitamin c and zinc, waiting for my arnica and bromelain to get here. Ahhh, I just feel like I'm missing things... Like do I really need a wedge pillow?? Ladies that have already been through this please help. :/

Just called my PS office, I was concerned because apparently they only use moderate plus, and i wanted moderate for a more natural look, but they said moderate plus was the same thing and would achieve the most natural results...hopefully they are right. I am just freaking out a little, I thought I was going to be able to choose the profile, I DONT WANT BIG ROUND BALLS ON MY CHEST! Lol, I just need to trust my PS.

Hi there! From the looks of your frame you look pretty petite! I went for a monderate + just yesterday and im in love with them already. Mine as of right now dont even look like "big round balls" Thats what a High Profile was going to give me. You should check out this site too, most of the pictures have the profile next to them and it cant definitely help you choose the profile. http://www.breastimplantsusa.com/before-after-photos/breast-augmentation/size/A-to-C-page-18.htm

My surgery is 12 days away! Very excited, no more nervous than I already was, just got back from wal mart and bought 2 danskin bras. I keep seeing on here that those are really comfy, so cant wait to wear them! I got 36 c, not sure what my size will actually be though once my BA is done, maybe somewhere in the neighborhood of 36c. I also just threw away all my old bras, cant believe it haha, thats kind of like signifying that this is a done deal you know? No more small boobies! This is REALLY happening.

I'm next week too!! I've been obsessing over the profile the ps suggested as well (high prof, I wanted mod plus) but came to the same conclusion today - I just need to trust him! lol I sent a looooog email with lots more photos, he definitely knows I don't want a "round ball" look either. :) I think it's just slight nerves kicking in that made me fixate on that one thing. Good luck to you next week!!! I'm 4/11 at 8am! :)

So I just got back from my preop, got a large amount of info regarding my surgery, do's and dont's, what to do the day before and after, things I already knew thanks to this amazing site ;) and I FINALLY know what time my BA is gonna be, 11:15, so I should be at the surgery center at 9:15. Woohoo! I only wish it could have been scheduled a little earlier because I can't eat until after my BA and I will be staaaarving lol. They were also telling me that I might have two different sizes since my left breast is ever so slightly bigger, don't know if it'll be 380 or 410s yet, my PS will decide in the OR. I also started taking my arnica and bromelain today and will pick up my prescription meds tomorrow, very very excited. 7 more days :)))

Oh & I told my PS the same thing!! I do not want 2 balls on my chest. I want to look beautiful & natural. No one told me to get Arnica or bromelain. What are these for?

As I read your story I was thinking wow.....sounds like mine. I'm having my surgery on April 19th at 11:15. Arrive at 9:15. I bought danskin sportsbra at Wal-mart (only had 2 left on clearance) 36 C. Hope they fit me. I'm 5'5", 110 lbs & a 34A. I'm getting 375cc on right & 350cc on left due to asymmetry. I am older though. 43 yrs old, 4 kids, breastfed 3. Was 126 lbs but went through some marital distress(then divorce) went down to 95 lbs. I was a C cup, D cup when breastfeeding. Now a 34A. A trip to the Bahamas for my 1st anniversary with my new husband is what sparked this. I always wanted them, didn't wanna be fake or go thru the pain. Didn't think I could afford them, etc. But looking a dresses I want for the beach depressed me! Now.....I am so excited & can't wait to go to the Bahamas! I am also hoping this will help my jealousy & insecurities I have about other topless women & my husband looking. Hell, we can't even watch an R rated movie. Nudity scenes make my stomach churn. I hated my husband to see nicer, Fuller breast than mine! Good luck with your surgery & I'm next!

So I'm still feeling ill, worse than yesterday, upping my vitamin c and taking some medicine, I NEED to feel better by my BA Friday. I also picked up all my prescriptions and man were they pricey :/ I've been working all this week to get a little money saved for the time I wont be able to work, and tomorrow I actually have off (yay) so I am gonna go crazy and make sure my place is spotless so when Friday comes I dont have to worry about a thing. And as the days get closer and closer to the 12th I get less nervous or worried and more in the mindset of "lets just hurry and get it over with! I'm ready!" :)

Ahhhh! I almost cant believe I'm here. Its the night before the big day, and I am SO excited. Anyway, so it was the last day at my job today, all the other waitresses were very happy for me and couldnt wait to see the results, heck I cant wait either!!! And then I got home, did a little more cleaning (had to make sure the place was spotless so I wont be stressed while recovering) and took my shower using dial soap like the nurse had specified, and now I am all ready. Laying in bed, trying to figure out what to eat since I only have two hours until I cant anymore.

After countless hours of reading others stories and seeing hundreds of photos, I feel good going into this. And that is all thanks to all you girls here and realself of course :) I never thought I could do this, but with the help of this site I now feel informed and I will join a lot of you girls tomorrow on the other side!

So I'm at the hospital right now waiting for them to call my name, oh my gosh my nerves are crazy right now. I'm not nervous for the procedure itself just the results... What if it isn't anything like I wanted? Ugh I shouldn't be thinking thoughts like those I'm sure everything will turn out great. The only thing I really want to complain about though is that I'm starting lol, I know I know, I'm a total fatty ;-) anyway to all you ladies getting yours today best of luck, and I'll see you on the other side xo

So I just came home from surgery, and I need the support of all you ladies here. I've slipped into depression, I havent looked at my breasts yet but in the bra and shirt I look like I'm a B. I wanted a full C, and this just looks like when I used a really good padded bra :/ I started crying when I woke up from the anesthesia regretting letting my surgeon pick my size, we agreed on either 380 or 410, he would pick whichever looks more natural, and from what I can see so far they look real natural alright, I dont even have cleavage. He told my boyfriend in the waiting room that he picked 380 and they look really good, but I just dont see it, its so small. I thought that right after surgery I'd be really big because of the swelling, so if this is me swollen, I dont want to know how it will look like when the swelling is gone. Girls please tell me everything will be ok, I cant stop crying because I dont know if I got what I wanted :( I will be posting a pic or two so you guys can see, let me know if it looks like it will be a full C, I just dont want to be disappointed.

So now that I am home, and on pain medicine i'm not so discouraged like I was in my last post. Now I'll give a few details on my procedure. I got to the hospital at 9:30, they called me to go back like 15 minutes later. So up until this point I was fine, no nervousness or anything. But once I got past those big double doors thats when I started feeling a little worried, it just got real. Then when I was in my room they took my vitals and the RN told me what was gonna happen. So at this point I was a total mess, hands sweaty, freaking out, I suddenly doubted myself and I even questioned if i should do this or not. The RN then got the anastethiologist to come in and talk to me and give me a little something in my IV to take the edge off. And boy did it, I felt like I had one too many cocktails and I kept laughing at nothing.Then my PS came in and I showed him my goal photo, I said to him I don't care about cc's as long as he could make me look as close to my goal pic as possible. He then began to draw on me, and then I was taken to the OR. I remember it feeling very cold the closer I got to it, but they did give me comfy warm socks and blankets which made me quite happy. So the last thing I remember from that is when they put an oxygen mask on me and told me to do deep breaths, and then it all went black, next thing I knew I was in the recovery room. I had the WORST dry mouth ever too. The nurse asked if I was in pain and I actually wasn't in too much pain, just felt a little pressure so she then gave me the ok to go back to the room where my boyfriend was and I could leave shortly. At this point I haven't looked at my new girls yet, so when I lifted the blanket I ended up being a little disappointed. I didn't have cleavage and I looked like a small B. I actually started to cry thinking I should have been the one to choose my size not the surgeon, but I picked a great surgeon so I need to have faith that it will look amazing, I just cant wait till tomorrow to take a little look at them. I posted a few new photos, I just need others opinions on them, do they look too small or is it just me? And as far as pain goes, I have taken my pain meeds and muscle relaxers, maybe thats why I don't feel so bad. I just cant lift anything or close or open doors, had to find out the hard way :/ Hoping I feel this good and even better throughout my entire recovery :)))

Hey girlie! First, CONGRATULATIONS :) second, don't worry about what they look like now.. Mine have changed SO much sense my surgery (3weeks ago) I rember looking down and not seeing much but that will change over time.. Just BREATHE and it helped me to think that no matter what size I come out as I will have the AMAZING shape that implants give women :)

Yeah? That puts me at ease, knowing it wont look like this for long. Everything will fall into place. What size did you get? It looks damn good!
It will be ok! Give it some time... I am around your size and did 375ccs and I am measuring at a 32DD! I have pics under my review. Right now you are feeling overwhelmed just try to relax get some rest and take it one day at a time!

Ok so I got my BA yesterday, and was feeling a little depressed because I thought they looked way to small to be what I wanted; a full C. So I called my PS office to see if I could take a look at them and they told me to look today but just a peek and then put the surgical bra back on. Anyway, I was just in the bathroom and had my boyfriend unclasp the bra, and told him to look first because I was so scared of the results. First words out of his mouth "oh wow" that was a good sign, so I looked, and I had a huge sigh of relief. I wanted to avoid the big fake balls on your chest look, and even though its one day post op, and they are riding really high and look swollen, I can already tell its gonna turn just like I wanted. I was finally able to put the arnica gel on them, had to have my boyfriend rub it on since it hurts my chest muscles to do that, which he didnt mind doing at all lol. What else, hmm, well my recovery so far is going quite well, better than I would have imagined. You hear so many horror stories on here, so you never know how itll turn out, but I have no pain or nausea. Just a little pressure, which is tolerable. I still use the muscle relaxers and norcos just in case it were to get worse. But its only gonna bet better from here right? ;) hope so. And I only have a little bleeding on one of my incision sites, not sure if to worry or not, dont want to get an infection or something, but apparently its normal to have a little blood and ooziness since its draining. Anyway, I'm also gonna post a few photos of my twins so you can see the results so far. Tell me if I still look like I'm gonna get a B:p

Oh I forgot to add a few things, I ended up with sientra 5th generation silicone gel (gummy bears) 380 moderate plus profile. The meds they prescribed me was promethazine for nausea, keflex for antibiotics, Celebrex as anti inflammatory, norco for pain, and flexeril for muscle relaxers. I'm also taking dulcolax stool softener as recommended by PS for constipation although I haven't had that yet. Leaving the hospital pain was about a 3, only type of pain I'm in is pressure when I do certain things like open doors or try to get dressed without help. Today my pains a 2 or 3, I already feel good enough to be out and about but I know I shouldn't overdo it. No brushing so far on my breasts either just a little blood on one of my incision sites. That's about all the info I can give right now. Gonna go lay down, the meds are making me kind of tired:)) more updating tomorrow.

Ugh I feel so useless right now lol. I feel good but cant do much since it causes a little pain when I start using my chest muscles or arms. I didnt know how much we use those muscles till you feel how hard it is to do it after a BA lol. Been up since 730, feeling real alert even though I'm on a heavy cocktail of meds that should make me sleepy. Besides that, I'm keeping on schedule with my meds, putting ice packs on my girls every hour for 30 minutes to help with the swelling, not sure if its really doing much or not. I cant wait to try on my danskin bras I got. I got a 36 C, that was the smallest size they had, I dont even know if theyll fit right now, I defintely dont think I'm a C yet. I dont want to get discouraged though, I'll try them on after my post op in a week and a half.

Been trying to sleep all day, not really working out for me. I keep sort of dozing off then waking myself back up, I've only actually slept 20 minutes at a time. It sucks, I want my sleep! :( I think its all this laying upright stuff, its pretty difficult to go from sleeping on your stomach your whole life to sleeping upright. I want to call my PS office and ask if theres anything they can give me for sleep. I dont know if thats even ok, anyone ever done that?

I was feeling too good to stay at home all day, so my guy and I went to Walmart to get a few more bras since the one the PS gave me had blood on it from my incisions. I finally found the danskin zip up bra, but was disappointed when I fit snugly in a 36B. I cant even express how upset I was, and still am. I wanted a full C but instead am a cup size too small. Someone please cheer me up, I know that its only my 2nd day post op and I shouldnt be worrying so much but I am only a cup size bigger than what I started with, and that was not what I wanted. :/ Anyway, I also got a genie bra in medium and some bio oil to rub on my girls so they wont get stretch marks. Now I'm off to bed, gonna go sulk some more...

Hey I saw your comments on my post, so I had to come look, and we're like in the same boat!!! I got the SAME Danskin hot pink sport bra in a 34 D and I don't really fill it out. :( But the surgical bra they sent me home in is a 32, and feels too tight. So once the swelling goes down I figured They'll drop and I'll be a small D. Plus I have a LOT of swelling around my ribs and sternum. And the stomach bloating too. >.< We're almost the same day post op too so we should keep comparing!!!
  • Reply
We are in the same boat! Cool, I'm not alone lol. Well I actually stopped worrying, there's really no point, mg BA was yesterday and so there was no use in me trying to measure myself today, it would just lead to disappointment since its too early to tell what size ill be and my implants are all high and tight. I'm not sure how many days post op you are but you said you're close to mine, so you should t measure yourself either till 3 or 4 weeks. Lets try to resist the temptation lol!
Hun I think you are buying the wrong size... It's not possible to go from wearing a 32 band to a 36 band. I wore a 32 band before and still do. However a 32DD is similar to a 34D. You need to get a tape measure to find your actual size. Right now it's too early to tell. I wouldn't base your size on sports bras either because they are sized differently than a regular bra!

So its my second day post op. Once again I have gotten up at 7, for some reason I cannot sleep any longer than that. I looked at my girls in the mirror, and I could swear they look a little different, although my boyfriend doesnt notice it. Maybe I'm just seeing what I want to see lol. Anyway, so I have decided the 36B doesnt fit, since after an hour of use last night it hurt so bad, I needed to switch out to another bra, it was overly tight on me. I guess I am no good at picking sizes. So I will stick to the post surgical bra my PS gave me, and the genie bra which I think is amazingly comfy, until my post op in 8 days :)) oh and today I finally get to shower! Woohoo! I'm a little nervous, I feel like somehow I will mess things up lol. I know not to take off the steri strips just the gauze and tape over them, but I cant help but think I am missing something lol. Gonna need help showering since I cant raise my arms too much yet...I'll let you all know how it goes!

So far I have been asleep basically all day, only waking up to take my meds or eat something. I definitely dont like sleeping this much but I needed it since the last two days I wasnt sleeping much. So today I finally took a shower, it was super short though, I didnt feel right without the support of my bra, I kept feeling like my implants were going to fall out lol. And I didnt like the fact that the steri strips were getting all wet, even though its ok, it just didnt sit well with me, so I took a two minute shower and hurried to put my beloved bra back on. Not much pain today either, just more swelling, which is making me feel very top heavy. Cant wait for it to subside. The bra I have on is so tight, probably due to how swollen I am. Aside from that, I finally went to the bathroom :) Not as much as I would have liked but its something, going to continue taking stool softeners and eating prunes! :))) anyone else feeling lazy? I know its ok to be this lazy since its only my second day post op but I really feel like I need to go do something.

Its now my 3rd day post op, pretty happy with the results so far. They are looking a lot bigger compared to how they looked right after surgery. I am able to do a lot of the same things now without pain, My arms movement is 90%, it only puts pressure on my chest if I am opening something. I can now wash my hair and even clean a little. But I wont push myself too far. Today will be the first day without the pain meds, I will continue using anti inflammatory and muscle relaxers but I havent had the need to use the norco. I am still putting arnica gel 3 times a day and bio oil twice, only complaint I'm having is the post surgical bra, its very tight, a nurse called to check up on me and I told her about the tight bra and she suggested I wear it anyway, so I will alternate between that bra and my oh so comfy genie bra. I am very thankful my recovery is nowhere near as tough as I thought it would be. Now if only my girls would drop and this horrible bloating would go away lol...

So today I felt something unusual and it really freaked me out. I would either bend down to pick something up or inhale deeply, and I feel my left implant move upwards then go back down. Kind of like a spasm I guess. And its weirding me out, because it feels like its coming out of place!! It also sometimes moves to the left side a little, but it only happens to my left implant and not my right, this happen to anyone? I dont know if its from overexerting myself or what, if anyone has any input on this I'd be happy to hear from you :((

So its almost 10pm, and I've been to the bathroom so many times! I think I overdid it on the stool softeners.... :/ I was taking dulcolax 2 tablets a day, it didnt seem to be working, then I added metamucil once a day, and all of a sudden I am having the worst cramps ever!! This sucks, Id rather be constipated than having the runs like this lol...Neither my PS or nurses told me how long to take the stool softeners so I didnt know when to stop, well now I'm off that stuff for good!! Any of you ladies have any advice? Maybe I should have only taken 1 tablet? Anything helps so I can get through my first week post op without these terrible tummy troubles.

It is now my 4th day post op, and up until this point I've had a love hate relationship with my girls. I didnt know if I liked them because they looked to small, but then as the days pass they look better and better, and now I cant help but flash myself as I pass a mirror ;) Anyway, I am finally not as bloated today. I've been ridiculously bloated since my BA, and yesterday because of all the junk I was taking so I could use the restroom, I was there all night lol. But one good thing did come out of that, I am a lot less bloated! Woohoo! I already want to go bra shopping too, but I must resist the temptation....its way too early. Anyone else in their 1st week post op? How are you girls??

Today is the first day that I felt like I overexerted myself...I was feeling really good, so I decided to clean and when my boyfriend got home we went to the grocery store and then I baked a pie. I now feel light headed and my incisions are aching, which has never happened before. I guess I wasnt feeling as good as I thought...gonna take the rest of the day easy, lay down, and enjoy my yummy pie with my guy :))) hope everyone is doing ok!

I have kept in touch with you and my girls are doing ok. They feel really heavy and hard. I am not allowed to massage until I see him at the week post op visit. No bruising thank god. I have been using the gel but it feels like they get tighter when I put it on. still living in the sports bra and hoodie. put make up on today and finally feel human again. I think we are on the better side now. I get scared mine are too big but we will see in a few months. but I do look at them often . as for the moving part in your boob don't be alarmed yet. I can hear mine swish when I touch certain parts.

I'm glad to see you are doing ok. My breasts also feel really heavy, not too hard though. And although I cant massage my girls until next week at my post op, I have started doing recovery stretches http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJs9tr75b70 once every hour, gets blood circulating and helps with the tightness and swelling, you should check that out :) and thanks for saying not to be alarmed, I was starting to freak out a little, I touch certain parts and it feels like air bubbles lol, I dont really like that.
I am not allowed to do the recovery stretches because the ps said not to put your arms over your head for one week eventhough you will get your full range of motion back in 3-4 days. Maybe stop doing that one if you think it is moving??? just trying to help

Almost a week! 5th day post op, still very satisfied with results. A little sad that my girls aren't dropping, and my left one looks a bit bigger than my right :/ can anyone else notice? Or is it just me lol...both my breasts are numb on the outer sides and nipples, and my incision sites are itching which is driving me NUTS. I can't scratch, obviously, so I just lightly rub them with my fingers and it works for the most part. Still feeling well enough to not need the prescription pain meds, just taking muscle relaxers and finally finished the antibiotics :) I might put another photo up, but I don't see any difference between yesterday and today so I don't see the point. Hopefully tomorrow I can see a little change:))

So I decided to go to Wal Mart today with the intention to buy a video game because I am crazy bored at home. My boyfriend suggested I get a new bra, and well, I ended up getting two! I was so sick of the plain white bras I have. Now I have a cute pink bandeu? Im not sure how to spell it, but its a bra that I can have different ways of wearing it. And a lower cute blue sports bra. Both bras have light support. Which I think should be ok. My post surgical bra is crazy tight, and is leaving marks on my skin. I will continue to wear that bra at night, but I will wear the other two new ones I got today for my every day use. Aside from that, I noticed that the reason I fit into B cups and not C is because they are so high up, they dont even fill out the C cup. But theres no way I am a B, I'm way too big, they are just a little high right now. So I am not fretting, they havent really dropped any. Uggghhh cant wait for when they do. I am so impatient ;) Hope you ladies are having a beautiful boobie day :)

So last night kind of sucked, I was feeling fine all day then at about 8pm I was watching a movie and all of a sudden I'm getting shooting pains down from the sides of my breasts to the nipples. And that actually really hurt. On a scale of 1 to 10 it was about a 5 or 6, which is big because since my surgery 6 days ago I hadnt experienced any pain just mild discomfort. So last night I ended up taking one of my pain meds, so I've taken two altogether :/ I was kind of feeling lucky since I only ever needed one. Oh well. But I was under the impression that the worst was behind me, and that every day would get better...guess not. Any of you ladies had a pain similar to what I had? I want to be sure I'm not the only one lol

Why thank you! ^_^
Hey girlie!! I know the shooting pains your talking about.. I only had a couple and they only lasted a day or two.. It was the most pain I felt the whole time and from what I've read it's just the nerves reconnecting :)

So its finally one week post op!! It feel like the days are going by so fast! I posted some new photos up, I honestly dont think I look that different than right when I got my girls. Just bigger lol. Siiiigh. I wish I would just hurry and drop already :((( I also wish to do breast massages but I was advised by my PS not to until my first post op which is on Monday. It needs to hurry and get here! Hmm...so besides being ridiculously impatient, I'm actually feeling pretty good. I only take a muscle relaxer before bed, and wake up feeling darn good. No "morning boob" here. :))) But I do have something funny happening, last night my boyfriend was lightly rubbing my breasts over the bra, because I kept telling him how I have no feeling on them, and then he lightly brushed over my incision and I got goosebumps! It was a really really weird tingly feeling, the equivalent feeling of having a really bad itch that when you scratched it it felt SO good. And it really did lol. I dont know if thats weird., I personally think it is haha, I dont know why thats happening :/ any of you girls had this happen?

They look a lot bigger than at the beginning YAY!! Once your able to massage you will feel soo much better and they will start to fall into position more :) the sensitivity is really normal I had the same thing lol but it went away pretty fast for me.. :)

Yeah I realllly cant wait to massage them. I hear mixed reviews on massaging, some say it feels good while others say its a little painful. I'm on the fence about it though, I mean I rub stuff on em every day and it doesnt hurt but as soon as I touch my nipples I get a sharp pain that I really dont like :/ hopefully that will go away soon.
Yea my nipples are still sore and sensitive but when you massage you don't touch your nipples so that's good :) n I was able to massage from day 1 and I am SO HAPPY I was able too it released a lot of pressure :)

So whats new to report today, hmmm...not much, my girls are doing very well, just have really bad nipple sensitivity at the moment. Even my bra rubbing on them sends a pins and needles like pain through my nipples :/ not enjoying that. I did notice however, that my left breast looks wider and lower now. I really like it, its dropping a little and is looking more natural. My right breast however is still all high and tight. Last night was date night and so my boyfriend took me out to eat and I was all like "YAAAAY I get to dress up!!!" My girls actually look really good in clothes, meaning you cant really tell I had anything done ;) pretty awesome. Then through the middle of our dinner I have pains in my nips, I think it was the bra, it had no support. I actually tend to feel a lot better with my post surgical bra :) anyway, hope you ladies are doing amazingly great, I'll check back in tomorrow hopefully put new pics up :))) xo

Tomorrow is FINALLY my post op.... 10 days later...

Tomorrow is FINALLY my post op.... 10 days later lol. As you can imagine, I am very excited. I cannot wait to finally have the steri strips removed from my incisions, I want to see how they are healing and also put some scar cream or scar strips on them. I have kept up with my stretch regimen, and finally not scared to actually squeeze and touch my breasts. For some reason I was thinking I'd somehow hurt them lol...but nope, it feels good to touch them and they are feeling more and more like my boobs every day. :) I will update tomorrow and let you all know how my post op went, I'll finally be able to massage these babies! ;) xo

Do you feel like yours got bigger as the days are going by and the swelling is going away?? They look good girl!
  • Reply
Thank you! And they are! I mean at first I thought they were only getting so big from the swelling, but most of it has subsided! And they look pretty big, too high to fit into the whole C cup though lol...:/ but that will come in time. Look forward to your one week post op, they will look so different! You love 'em now you will love them even more in a week! :)
Yay boobs! mine is almost a month away. Holy crap I think I'm more nervous of being put under then the recovery

So today I was able to go to my first post op, the PS took a look at my girls and everything seems to be going well. I learned some massage techniques to help the implants drop some, and got some scar strips! Finally being able to really touch my breasts is AWESOME! I loooove feeling them haha ^_^ And the scar strips I got are kind of cool, they are nude colored and sort of blend in with my skin. They gave me the option of getting the silicone strips and gel, which is 50 bucks for a months supply, and I might actually do that. I will try out the strips I have now and then buy the silicone strips and gel in two weeks, I just want the best thing out there to take care of my scars. Hmmmm, what else....oh, my lefty is still dropping faster. I touch the tops of my breasts and the left feels really full up top, she needs to hurry and drop like my lefty!

I read you felt yours looked small at first then they started to fill out.. I'm kinda feeling the same way and was wondering what day you noticed they were bigger than you thought?
  • Reply
Yeah I felt so bad that first week thinking I went way too small lol, but I did not. Before my surgery I got a sheet that said how I'd be progressing, so the first day you're not really swollen then you start getting super swollen days two and three then it subsides. So that's what I was thinking would happen, but I didn't really get swollen till the end of my first week and right around then is when I thought I looked bigger. So maybe it was from the swelling? I can't say for sure, but now that I'm not swollen at all anymore, they still retained that shape and are just as big. So honestly I would say probably between a week and a week and a half. How far along are you?
Ok... I'm only two days post op... I want to be a full D and maybe I'm crazy cuz my fiancé thinks they look huge and once the drop and fluff they will expand more from the muscle relaxing, but I feel like I look like a C... I know it's soooo soon to judge, I'm just going crazy already

So its been two weeks now, and I dont really see...

So its been two weeks now, and I dont really see any new changes! I was hoping I'd see a little more dropping, but not really. I actually think they are somehow getting smaller, tell me what you think! I also ended up going to the gym today, its been far too long! I only did 30 minutes on the elliptical nice and slow, and I was in zero pain. Very happy about that:)

I actually don't know what I am yet, I tried on bras 3 days post op and fit into a B but they were so high and it was too early to tell, And even now I had a 36C bra I bought just in case and I fit Into a c cup but think I would fit better into maybe a 34, so yeah I don't know, I'll measure myself for sure in two weeks when I'm a month post op. anyway, good luck to you, and let me know how many cc's you end up getting!:)

This is a short little update, but have to update because I'm SO excited. I was measured and I am..... drum roll pleeeease..... 32D! Yeah, I couldnt believe it either. They havent even really dropped much yet! I thought I would end up being a B, MAYBE a C, but a D??? I mean I know its a small D, but hey, I'm not complaining! I am also posting a photo of me in my lovely VS bra. ;)

You got finally what you wanted. I do not understand why you wanted big ones, your body is small like mine. The good thing is that they are shaped nicely, do not even look fake. I noticed that the result depends on the original shape of the breasts and not the cc's or projection. Of course also by the doctor's work. You look great.

So it has been 3 weeks since my surgery, and the girls are dropping nicely. I am noticing just through looking at photos that they seem like they are getting smaller, not sure how I feel about that. But I am a 34C which is the sister size to 32D, but I dont look like those sizes :/ I dunno, maybe I'm just being a little too critical...I just need to drop and fluff more, maybe I will be more comfortable with how I look. Speaking of being comfortable with how I look, I dont know why but I was wearing a low cut shirt today and we went out to the mall, and I kept feeling SO self conscious I felt like everyone was looking at my chest, and I noticed I would cover my cleavage...I'm not sure why I am doing that, I thought getting breasts would make me more confident. I am just having mixed feelings right now...
