I have been waiting my whole life to have breast implants and I am finally doing it on May 1st!
My breast have always been small a 34 a cup. I am 5'4 and 120 llbs. At first I was worried that people would notice so I was thinking of only going for a 350 cc saline high profile. I tried on the 350 cc sizers and they looked great but I heard that you lose 50 cc's going under the muscle. Now I am considering a 400 cc high profile implant because I am liking other girls before/after pics with that size implant. I am just worried that they might be too big or look fake. I called up the office and am going to go in for a 2nd fitting on in a week. I just don't want to regret not going big enough. I also haven't told my parents because I am worried what they will think of me :/
I am not nervous at all. I want them in right now! i am counting down the days!
I spoke to someone yesterday who has had breast...
I spoke to someone yesterday who has had breast implants and nose surgery and she loved her results. I think she looks great. Come to find out she went to the same doctor that I am going to- Dr. Freedland It makes me feel good that I picked the same doctor.
I am going today to try on the sizers one last time then I will have surgery on the 1st! wow only 5 days away! I was thinking 400 cc high profile now... but Im not sure that will look ok on my frame. I tried them on when I had my first appt. and I loved how they looked but I was afraid of not being conservative. I will try them on today and see :) I have a feeling I will end out going with the original 350 cc.
I tried on the sizers 400 and 375. I decided to go...
I tried on the sizers 400 and 375. I decided to go with 350 filled to 375. 400 was great but way too big for me. I think I'll be happy!

I am so excited for my surgery in 2 days :) I just hope I picked the right size and didn't choose one that was too small. I am having a hard time with sticking to a low sodium diet. :/ I also am thinking of getting a u-shaped pillow.

Day of treatment
Just had surgery an hour ago and it went well! I feel fine right now and just a little pressure/pain but so far do good!

2nd day post op. they are feeling really high, swollen, and hard. This is all normal. it feels like i have 2 bricks inside my chest! It did hurt when i woke up in the middle of the night when my pain pills stopped working. I can't wait till them to drop and not look like bricks inside my chest lol. At this point I think I chose the right size. It is hard to tell now though since they are high.
I also have noticed that my nipples look way more even/symmetrical. I think he may have filled one more? i will find out exactly what they did when i go to my post op next week :)
Today is post op day 3. I took my last pain pill...
Today is post op day 3. I took my last pain pill at 2 am. I am feeling ok 8 hours later and i feel like I might not need to take any pain medication today. They still feel stiff and high. I cant wait to shower today :) Im wondering if i still need to ice them even if they don't hurt that much.
Day 4 post op. I woke up in the middle of the...
Day 4 post op. I woke up in the middle of the night with a bad headache! It hurt more than my boobs! So I took a pain pill and it helped a little. I think i might be getting headaches due to allergies or possibly because Im going to start my cycle in a few days. I hope it doesn't have anything to do with the surgery. I think I am going to start taking regular tylenols.
I am starting to feel like I should have picked a...
I am starting to feel like I should have picked a larger size implant. :/ Its only been 5 days post op and they are still really high so I can't judge them too much....
So today I went back to work for the first time...
So today I went back to work for the first time since my surgery. I'm a hair stylist so I was nervous that it would hurt but it wasn't too bad, I just got fatigued after 5 hours. I told a few coworkers about my surgery and when they saw me they said "It looks like you didn't even get anything done". It's probably because I always I always wore the add 2 cup size bombshell bra. I'm starting to feel like I probably should have gone bigger because they look smaller with clothes on (even more than they did with the sizers) :/
I had my post op yesterday. They said I can start...
I had my post op yesterday. They said I can start working out but to take it easy at first. They also said I can wear any bra as long as its comfortable and sleep how ever I want. I found out I had 360cc in the left and 375 in the right. My right breast needs to catch up with the left that's dropping faster. They said that it will eventually drop even. :)
They are getting a lot softer and looking more natural every day. Yesterday I bought a new bra with a wire and man I should have worn a sports bra lol. They kinda felt too pushed up I think I'll wait another week to wear normal bras :)
Feeling too small
So I am kinda sad that I didn't go bigger. I am considering possibly having them redone. I just expected them to be bigger than they are. They really do look smaller when they are under the muscle. I do think they look way better then what I started with but I feel sad about this because I expected them to be bigger. I'm not really sure what I should so :/
1 month post OP- still want to go bigger
It has been over a month since I have had my breast implants and I still feel like they are too small. :( I definitely want to go bigger. I had my 1 month post op appointment the other day and explained this to my surgeon and he said I should wait a few months and think about it because its too soon after surgery to do a revision. I also have been noticing that my left breast has been dropping a lot more than my right (my right was smaller and higher to begin with though.) I am wondering if it is starting to bottom out? It bothers me that it looks that way and I am worried that it will continue to drop even more. My Dr. explained that if he were to put the implants completely aligned with one another I would have a possibility of having whats called "double Bubble" which I definitely don't want. I have my next appointment in Sept. and we will discuss the option of going bigger and also fixing the one side so its aligned with the right.
Even though my implants and results are not my ideal I feel like my surgeon did a good job especially when seeing my before pictures. When I have my revision I think I will get silicone instead of saline because I am noticing light rippling and it will probably be worse with a larger implant. I am thinking I should go at least 100 cc's larger (450-475ccs). Maybe 500? I swear when I tried on the 400 sizers they seemed huge! and the 375ccs did too-which i like. But under the muscle they are way smaller. I was worried that my current implants (360-375cc) would be too big and the sizers really seem bigger when placed over your clothes in a tank top. I thought I would have a noticeable difference in clothing but you cant really tell that much that I had anything done. I look like a B cup at the moment and not a C cup like I thought I would be. :(
So bummed out
So it's been about 6 weeks since my surgery and I am still feeling upset. They do look nice and a lot better but I just tried in my old 34 a padded bra from Victoria's Secret and it still fits! Wtf!!! :( I am so confused. After all the swelling is going down they are getting smaller. I mean they are bigger which I am happy about but damn how do I still fit into my old bras?? I'm so depressed about this I feel like I wasted money :(
Almost 2 months post op and they are looking better and getting softer. I still wish they were bigger but at the same time I am happy because it was such an improvement. I still am considering a 100cc increase but I'm waiting until my next appointment to decide.
2 months post op.
I think the results are looking better every day and they look natural. I think my right is starting to catch up with the left a little more although they probably won't be equal because of previous asymmetry. I have been noticing a little rippling (dr warned me about this with saline implants) but it doesn't bother me too much. I still wish I would have gone bigger.

2.5 months post op. everything is healing well and looking better. My boobs look a lot more even since my right finally had dropped. I've been wearing padded push up bras from vs. size 32d. My fav from vs is the temptation push up bra. It makes them look awesome. They still seem too small to me. I feel like I always have to wear a padded bra still. I'm am happy I went though with the surgery. It was worth it but I still would like to go bigger hopefully sometime in the near future.

5 month post op. advice needed
So I just had my 5 month post op appointment and my Dr and I talked about my implants settling too low on my chest. He said that I have the option of getting sutures to lift them. Or live with them how they are. He would be covering Surgon fees but I have to pay for hospital fees and Anestesia which is around $1500 :/ we also talked about the option of going bigger with either saline or silicone implants and also suturing as well. I'm considering this and since if I'm getting surgery and going under the knife again then this would be the time to go bigger. The only problem is that I would have to pay a lot more for implants and my total would be around $4000 for saline around $6000 for silicone. I really do want to go bigger but should I get saline this time or silicone? This really sucks :/ it's going to take me a while to save up :/ .... Do any of you ladies have any advice for me? I'm worried they will continue to drop even lower. Should I save up for saline or silicone? Please help.
This sucks. I have to get my boobs fixed :( they are dropping too low :( I still want them bigger. My dr said it was possible but I have to pay a lot more. I'm not sure if I should just get them re sutured to fix the bottoming out or if I just get bigger implants and pay more. This is a hard decision. Any advice would be appreciated
Getting a revision in March.
I had an appointment today to talk about going bigger. I got to pick out the sizes and I think i have it narrowed down to 465cc HP saline filled to 505cc. Thats about 130-145 CC more than I have. I also considered the 500HP filled to 550 but I am worried about rippling with that large of an implant. If for some reason I chose silicone later I will get the 500s or 550's but I don't think Ill be able to come up with the additional $2000 and I don't want to finance. Do you ladies think I am making the right choice with this size?
Silicone instead of saline 500cc HP
Revision update- I have decided that I am going to go with the silicone instead of saline and go with 500 CC High profile instead of 465 saline filled to 500cc. I am concerned about the rippling and I don't want to be self conscious about it. It's more costly, but I just want to be happy and content with my boobs. YOLO lol. I have to save up a lot of money in a short time but I think it will be worth the cost. Do you ladies think I am making the right choice?
silicone gel vs. cohesive gel?

I am wondering if I should ask about silicone gel vs. cohesive gel... I think he offers Natrelle 410's which are cohesive and also atomically shaped... but I really like the high profile look.... I am wondering if i should go with regular silicone implants or cohesive??? Anyone have any advice on this?
they keep dropping :(

I am so sad that they keep getting lower. I wish i could get them fixed sooner...Even though I am getting internal sutures, I am now scared that 500 cc will make them bottom out again.
I would definitely recommend this doctor. At my 1st consultation Dr. Freedland and his staff made me feel very comfortable. All my questions were answered and he was very professional. He did a good job on my breast augmentation and I know other people who have gone to him for breast implants and their results look great. I liked how I was offered options (for example-different sizes and High profile implants). The day I had my surgery I felt very comfortable and the hospital staff was so friendly and really did a great job answering my questions- I was very impressed. Before I chose Dr. Freedland for my surgery, I almost went with another Dr. and I am so glad I changed my mind. The other Doctor did not offer me any other types of implants (no high profile implants- just 1 size which was 270 cc-I would have been so unhappy with that small of an implant). The Dr. I almost went to held a "group consultation" which I thought was strange... but everything with Dr. Freedland was one on one which was important to me. Dr Freedland also called me at 2 months post op to check in to see if everything was ok which was also very much appreciated.
