47 Year Old, Mother of 3. Ruptured Saline Implant Exchange - Baton Rouge, LA

I have had 400cc saline implants for about 12...

I have had 400cc saline implants for about 12 years, with a slow leak in my right one for about 5 years. Recently, the leaking one completely ruptured and I had a couple of consults, eventually deciding to go with Dr. Gruenwald in Baton Rouge, LA. I knew I wanted to have my implants replaced with high profile silicone, as my salines rippled badly and always felt like water balloons sloshing around on my chest. I also wanted to go a little larger, but didn't want to look like a porn star, so I was shocked to learn that every single "dream pic" of boobies I showed Dr. G, he said were at least 550cc's...holy shit that's huge! But he assured me that the boobs I was saying I wanted, were indeed "huge". I trusted his judgement but told him not to go over 600cc's. Well, I am 8 days post op with a whooping 600cc's of boobies strapped to my little 5'5" inch 112lb body and I LOVE them. They do feel heavy at the moment, but they look great and feel like soft, pillowy real boobs. I am having more post op pain than I remember having with my other BA's, I've had two previous. I am still taking pain meds, ribs feel bruised. Maybe they had to really pry me open to put that size of an implant in? Anyway, I am very pleased with my results! Love them!


You look amazing! I am 5'6" 112lbs and and do want large boobs by I am a lil afraid to end up looking like a circus freak. My PS is talking about 700-800cc ultra high profile silicone....

You look great. I had a BA with Dr. Gruenwald. I love my results. Very natural looking. However, after looking at more photos, i do like the HP looks... closer together and bigger. I have 450 CC. If I ever have to get them redone, I'll probably go bigger and talk about HP.

P.S. I had over the muscle as well but did gel.
If they ate over the muscle to you get rippling and feel the implant itself?
