Babies are here!! :)

Lets see...long story short...Lol! In my early 20's I was always a 36C and weighed around 185-200#'s ..I then had 2 kids and l at my heaviest weighed 252...I got back down to 200 and then lost weighed after I breastfed. Down to 140 and lost all volume in my breasts. I have been considering this for over a year now and my husband says go for it. Ive been seeing so many successful stories and how happy women are and its really helped with my decision to go for it! Im 31 and live in Ohio...I really want to do this for myself and of course my husband will be happy as well! He always tells me he misses my 'big boobs' haha! So finally from looking around multiple docs and hundreds of reviews I narrowed it down to one and will meet with him first week in February. Cant wait! Im hoping to go for a D-DD! Im 5'3...From what ive been seeing and doing research, im thinking High profile under the muscle maybe 400-450 cc's..Obviously I'll know more of whats good for me when I meet with the Doc! I would say that yes I do have a slight droop and do not want a lift..I've seen many cases that look just like mine and didnt have to have one...Plusbi dont have the money, Lol. ..Alright I'll check back in a few weeks with update from Doc! Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated! Xoxo

Less than 2 weeks for my appt with Doc to see what size and stuff, i'm leaning in the 500's....I also dont think that i need a lift right now...Im not looking for perky and stuff, i just want my D/DD volume back!!! From the looks of my nipples to my crease they are above anyway so i think theyre fine and im not concerned about a lift..i've seen MANY cases like mine or even lower and they didnt get a lift and months later their breasts look awesome and look for the same thing i am, volume! I've also quit smoking which ive been wanting to anyway...Gross! Lol

Thanks for stopping by my review and being so sweet! I'm excited for you and remembering how I felt when I was getting ready to meet with surgeons. I think you will look great with 500cc and no lift. I think a lot of docs do lifts because they like cutting and it makes them more money, but thank heaven not all of them are like that. Keep updating and sharing your experience!

Thank you so much! ! I will do!! :) Its stories like yours that are so inspiring! ! Xo
Congrats on quitting smoking!!! With 500's you will definitely get your DD's I'm sure.

I think it's great your doing it now instead of waiting. Now that I have had mine done I wish I had done it in my 20's cause I love them so much. Take a look at my profile ( I have pics) I also was borderline lift and did not get one. Now I saw two other PS that told me I definitely needed one but the PS I chose understood what I wanted and said he could accomplish it without a lift. He showed me others he had done w/o a lift and his work was excellent. Finding a highly skilled surgeon and then good Communication is key. Take pics with you so they know what you want. I used the word voluptuous to describe to my PS what I wanted. Good luck and let us know how your consults go. This website can walk you thru this journey and make it so enjoyable. I have never had a question that wasn't answered here or a doubt that wasn't reassured by these women. I'll be following your process.

And by the way I got DD's with L360 cc's and R385 cc's. So make sure you have a good surgeon. CC's depend on alot of things. And your paying him for his expertise. good luck keep us posted
thank you so much for that! Thats very nice and helpful of you! Ive been on this site for months looking around and getting good advice from people like you and really appreciate it :) i have pictures of my phone all boobs lol to show both of them next week. Cant wait to see what they say. i have a feeling they will say that i am borderline and would benefit from a lift, but im not looking for perky, just volume. will definetley keep you updated! :)

One more day for my consultations! I go bright and early Wednesday morning, first one at 9am and the next one which is like a half hour away at 11:30am! Very excited! ! :) I have a feeling that they will both tell me im borderline for a lift and will benefit from it. I think I'll be ok and believe that I can achieve that 30's natural look :)

Well, had my 2 consuls today! The first one went EXTREMELY well. The doc spent all together, a good hour and a half with me! Thats awesome! It was also a free consul. The second one was $25 and I got $50 off . I made it with 15 minutes to spare. I liked him but the atmosphere was really different than the first and I was only in the room for a half hour total. Seemed kinda rushed. He talked fast. Lol. So yeah I chose the first doc! Surgery is scheduled for February 19th at 7:30am woohoo! Mentor Memory Gel 550ccs High profile under the muscle, inframammory incision.
Like I said before I bet they will say I will benefit from a lift. Yep they both said it! The first one said he was concerned and that I would not be happy with just an augmentation and said I of course had ptosis. He showed me photos of ones that had ptosis and didnt get a lift and seeing the results. Some werent bad but some were! Mine looked worse than the ones he showed me :/ So i am deciding to go with the lift. Might as well do it! If im going to spend this amount of money, I need to look at this for the long run and not have to think about if I will need a lift in a year or 2 or what if I get the snoopy boob effect? I really dont want to go through that. More headaches and stress that I want to avoid! So Friday I go for my before pics and sign papers and tuesday I go for lab work and the following tuesday will be surgery day! Shit just got real. Lol :)

A suggestion. Lay both of your hands on the top of your head and this is all the lift your are going to get with just an implant and no lift. My PS had me do this so he could show me what I would achieve. I was completely happy with it. He also said you are going to have the same boobs just bigger and with a little bit of a lift from the implant. So if you are happy with all those things you are making the right decision going without the lift. Gotta keep your mind in reality cause we look at so many boobs we get unrealistic goals in our heads. I know I had to keep telling myself this when I was doing my research. Same boobs just bigger. That's why it's important to look at women who are similar to you before augmentation so you know what to expect. By looking at your Befores I think you'll going to look great with just implants. Also look at your PS's before and after of those who were borderline and see if you like the outcome. Like my PS said once you burn that bridge (having a lift) you can't go back. So putting waiting to see if I would be happy w/o one was the best choice for me. Hope this helps.

yes i have read that too to do that and im more than happy where the nipples are when i do that :) My PS did show me pictures of some ladies that didnt do it and i thought they looked fine! obviously hes trying to show me where the nipple placement should be, but it was really out of place on them, so I am ok with just the aug and he said ok if thats what i really want and yes down the road if i would want it, then we'll do it.. He was very supportive of my decision :) I have seen tons of breasts that were way down more than mine and they even turned out great! even years later! Thank you for your advice!! :) I have one more week! So excited!!
**but it really wasnt out of place on them, is what i meant...LOL

Question, I just thought about this....if these are going beneath muscles, should I have a script for a muscle relaxer? I got scripts for Ambien, Cipro and Percocets...I see a lot of people that get scripts for those after a breast aug.

Two more days until your big day!! Are you ready?

Yay yes im so excited! !! Im very ready! Ready for my husband to be off too! LOL
I dont think that you need a lift either. My before girls look alot like yours and I didnt get a lift. Now at almost 5 weeks, they are looking like I had hoped they would. You will love the 550s.I think thats a great size!! My newest pics show my 600cc's at 5 weeks PO. I have a very wide chest area and so they fit great. As for muscle relaxants, I started taking them when I wanted to stop taking the percocet. At 2 weeks PO I no longer had pain, it was more muscle spasms that went away with flexeril. It really helps so that you dont have to take narcotics any longer than you need to. After 2 weeks, you can start to get kind of addicted to them. Will be thinking about you with your upcoming surgery, Yeah!!! :)

I have a case of Frankenboob! They are long and my nips are lower as of right now...hopefully with time they will settle down and fluff! Feeling sore but staying on the couch..walk around for a bit then I lay back down...these drains I cant wait to get out. They feel like im wearing an underwire bra that is poking out, lol! Annoying more than hurting...fluid in the drains has gone down a lot so hope I will get them out in the morning. Haven't slept yet but not really tired. Just glad im able to lay on the couch..

I have my moments, but id say 90% of the day is great! Ive been moving them up and in like doc said and that actually makes them feel so much better! Theres a big difference in my drains so im hoping to get them out soon! Yesterday was 60ccs total. Today so far has been 20 in each and that was noon. Its 7pm now and theres like nothing in them! Yay! Ive also switched back n forth from ibuprofen and percocets. If im really sore ill take a perc and if not ill take ibuprofen. Seems to work really well. Ive also been sleeping like normal just have to remember to get out of bed easy when I wake up. So far so good! Lovin my girls. Just will take time for some droppage ;)

Yeah, you did it!! So glad that everything went well for you! Yeah!! :) Dont worry about the shape of your boobs right now. They will change drastically in the next month. Mine went from high and tight "Arnold pecs" to soft, round (and dropped) boobies. Big difference as they drop and fluff! The bottoms of your breasts will fill out as they drop and soften. Get lots of rest.... Hugs! xoxoxo :)

So today is 11 days..Ive uploaded one from day one and today so you can see the difference already in them. Its amazing considering on the 5th will only be 2 weeks post op for me..Can only imagine what they will look like at 3 months!! My left one is dropping faster than my right and is more tender. My right one i can tell is more relaxed and not a problem at all..My left one i just think is still swollen. It doesnt bother me until i move it inwards when im doing my massages. Just feel the burning sensation in my nipple, but PS said its normal..Just have to keep telling myself its waaayyy early! I think to myself, even if my boobs dont give me much more of a difference, i am very happy with them because its totally better than what i started with! (But they are improving so there will still be much more of a difference after today and many more days to come! :)
Ive been off the meds and don't take anything now, just the rest of my Arnica pills until they're gone :) So now it's just the waiting game!
I feel that im going through about the same thing RxGirl went through. So just gotta wait for progression!

Lol! 2 new pics from today. you can tell changes :) (Starting to look more natural and i can tell the nips are moving upwards so thats great!) No more tingly feeling in left breast. They both are squishy but you can tell you cant be 100 % with them just yet..I do feel now they are a part of me :) Glad i didnt go bigger and glad i didnt go smaller. i feel they are just right for my frame!

Hi! How have your breasts settled? I am dealing with frankenboob/snoopy right now and it is very discouraging. Just trying to see if I have some hope and don't need to plan on a revision! Thanks!
  • Reply
Hi! Its been 2 1/2 months and my breasts look like my last picture still but have dropped a little more. I think it may take a full 6 months before my final result? Time will tell. I love them though! My left one is like perfect and my right is just trying to catch up. Have you seen RxGirl s profile? Mine are doing exactly what hers did. It does take time. Some doctors will say they should be where they're at by 3 months, but who's to say that's how everyone's body is? Its not that's for sure! Check out her profile for some reassurance as well :) how long has it been for you?

3 months :)

Its been 3 months so far and I couldn't be happier ! Right one is still dropping. Just a little slow, but I know it takes time. Love them :)

Wow does time fly by! Its been a lil over 6 months now and im completely happy :) I'm so used to them I do sometimes think I should have went bigger, but thats only because it feels like they've been there forever! Pic is from this morning. Pretty sure that where they're at is where they'll stay. My right one is a tich higher, but if I wear a certain Danskin bra they even out. Weird? ;)

do you think you changed much between 3 and 6 months - hard to tell from the pics - just wondering how much more I will drop - I am a little over 2 months Thanks

Most definitely! My right one needed to catch up and it did for sure inbetween 3 to 6 months
Hello! I feel great! They look and feel so natural! Very satisfied :)

the difference between 3 and 6 months :)

You can definitely tell the difference here! Top is 3 months and bottom is 6 months! :)

I can't thank you enough for posting your last contrasting photo of 3 and 6 month post op. Seems like most everyone expects final results to show at 3 months but some women take a bit longer. Your 1 day post op photo and your 6 month photo are truly amazing...time does heal! Congratulations and thank you for your wonderful and helpful updates!

Cleveland Plastic Surgeon

He is in my area. When I met with him, I knew he would be my surgeon. He spent time with me and went over everything and answered any questions I had..The office is filled with smiles and warmth from all the ladies there! No long waiting time for anything! My surgery was 2 weeks after first visit. Everything runs very smooth and such a great atmosphere to be in! Love them and Dr. Vanek. I will definitely recommend him to everyone and go to him for future procedures :)
