My Surgeon Thinks HP is the Way to Go? - Brookline, MA

Hello ladies, Ok so I am getting my BA on Monday...

Hello ladies,
Ok so I am getting my BA on Monday June 24th and I'm starting to freak out! At my pre op my surgeon told me he choice 350 ccs silicone HP. I told him the whole time I wanted natural looking boobs, NO big gap inbetween and I don't want to look like I have 2 balls sitting on my chest. So when I said I was getting HP I was shocked. He said the mod plus would give me too much side boob. I'm thinking if I chose a smaller cc would I be able to do the mod plus? I mean u showed him pics of what I wanted and he insist that HP are the way to go for me? Anyone get HP and love them? I mean I'm no expert about breast augmentations so I'm not knocking anyone who has HP. I've been researching and actually seen alot of girls that have HP and look amazing! I'm just super nervous that they aren't going to come out how I wanted :-/


I have HP and today I actually turn 5 weeks and I'm loving them! I don't have the big gap in the middle (I was worried about that too!) Good luck in Monday!

             your ps is right! i had mods before and i had way to much side boob! i was flat in the front and bigger to the sides: i didnt like it at all: i like being bigger toward the front; and just enough side boobs! it all depends on the look your going for!

3 days till surgery!

Hey boobie friends :) so i bought arnica and bromelian today and was wondering when to start taking it and how many at a time? Also how was it getting put to sleep? Another thing im worried about is never feeling like the implants are apart of my body, scared ill never feel "normal" I know everyone says they don't even remember how it feels not having boobs after a few weeks, I'm just fearing ill feel weird, some girl on here posted that she got them removed because of it!!! Was the surgery easier then you expected or worse?


I have HP and am almost 8 weeks and am very happy! Getting put to sleep? It was nothing, they put an IV in the pre op room and then in the actual OR they were just putting on the heart rate monitor stuff and talking a little to me and then the next thing I knew I was being awaken in the recovery room. I was just very tired and had a hard time waking up and just felt a lot of pressure. I was expecting it to be way worse. It is surgery but would do it again. Just remember to get rest and let others help take care of you. Are you getting over or under the muscle? Good luck with everything :-)

Thanks for ur comment! I'm getting under the muscle which I know hurts more but I had 2 csections and the recovery for that is NO JOKE! couldn't even laugh or sneeze, so I hoping this is a piece of cake compared to that! I know my backaches will prob be the worst part for me
I think under the muscle is better. I had 3 consults, my Ob/gyn, and the mammogram tech tell me that it is better for screening to go under, look more natural and feel more natural with the silicone. If your worried about the weight hurting your back, there isn't a noticeable difference. But to have to sleep on your back for that long kind of bothered my upper back and neck. I can sleep on my stomach now and am so glad! I could laugh but it kind of hurt to sneeze but I'm sure not nearly as bad as a c-section. You'll be a pro!

Did I buy the right stuff?

Did I buy the right stuff? My surgeon says I don't really need it but wouldn't hurt if I bought it, I've heard alot of girls say it works great so I figured why not? Just wondering if I purchased the right brand and stuff


Oh ya that is kind of late in the day to have to wait to eat :/ but you probably won't be hungry .. Can't wait to see your results :) take care & talk to you soon !!

This pic didn't load in my review

Day 1 post op

So today is post op day 1 and I'm already loving my results. I can't wait till they drop and get soft to see how they will look. I woke up fine, just a tiny bit sore but nothing crazy at all. Ok let me tell u how it all went down yesterday.

We got there at 12 and called me in the back about 10 mins later (hubby couldn't come back there at all) I wanted to cry when I hugged him bye, but I didn't lol. So I got back there, they had me change into a Johnny, Slipper socks and a hair net. She took my vials and weighed me. Then I met the anesthesiologist and she went everything over with me, then I met the nurse who stays in the operating room, then my PS came in and made sure we was on the same page as to size and stuff, he did some marks on me and I never seen him again at all. Lol not even in the operating room cause I was sleeping before he even came in. Ok so then I walked into the OR, they gave me a IV which didn't hurt at all I'm surprised it just felt like blood work or something, then she said "ok I'm gonna put a mask on ur face I want u to take 2 nice deep breathes, and I was Out like a light. Next thing I know I was waking up in the recovery room. Woke up in NO PAIN AT ALL!! No pressure, nothing! I was just tired, me and the nurse on the recovery room was talking about our kids and cars and Disney world lol. Then she helped me get dressed and wheeled me out to hubby and we went home. I didn't even sleep when I got home because my sister and brother came over with their kids so it was a zoo I'm my house lol. I slept in my couch with my feet on the ottoman, not the best sleep I've had but wasn't as uncomfortable as I thought it would be. I set my phone alarm to get up and take my mess cause I didn't wanna wake up in horrible pain. I woke up perfectly fine, just a little tight and sore.
Quick question, are any of you taking Perc's and feel like ur vision is a little blurred? Not too much but mostly when I'm typing on my phone.
I'm gonna post pics

I removed the nausea patch this morning and now my vision is blurry, not really when I'm just looki g around but when I'm on my phone typing its real blurry, I read its a side affect but now long does this last? It's driving me nuts!!! I also feel a little weird, can't really explain the feeling.. Anyone else experience this?


Wow you look amazing! I got 375 cc HP silicone unders last week :)

Thank u! How do u feel? Did they soften up at all, wondering how long it takes till I kinda feel back to normal. You don't have any pics posted? U look just like me in ut main pic, lol, same surgical bra and everything lol
Hi! I am 11 days post op and I was also givin percocet 7.5mg but I was taking 1 and a half so a little more than 10mg. It DEFINITLY makes you feel loopy and weird that's just what it does nothing to be alarmed of. I would call your PS just to make sure though. I actually called my PS on day 3 to switch to Vicodin cause I didn't like the way the perks made me feel. Although the are Great for pain Vicodin does a great Job too.

Post op day 2

Hey ladies, so much hasn't really changed, I'm less sore then yesterday, I'm only taking Motrin and Tylenol because the Perc's had me feeling in a fog and weirded out. I ended up having dilated pupils and blurred vision (when looking at my phone) due to the nausea patch, I removed it yesterday morning. When I woke up today my pupils aren't dilated anymore but my blurred vision is still there. I'm laying here watching tv and notices my right hand is having a "twitch" I guess that's what we can call it, it's inthe palm of my hand near my pinky finger. Anyone else have this? I'm such a worry wart lol


I have a question . Is the arnica gel helping ? I didn't buy any thinking I would really bruise but my ps offered to do some lipo no extra charge under my arm pit area where I had a little fat pocket . I hadn't even noticed it until he pointed it out but he is a perfectionist and at no extra charge I figured why not . But that part did bruise a little . Just wondering if the arnica is worth buying ?
  • Reply
I have no clue if its actually working lol, I have the bruise on my arm which is still there even with the gel, and I have a bruise on my incison but I can't put the gel there so, it does seem to help with the stiffness feeling tho, and swelling
Okay cool I think I'll try it .

New pics! Post op day 4

Wanted to post some new pics, they are looking better everyday, was able to get a sports bra on today. Besides still feeling a little "foggy" from anestisia wearing off, my recovery has been surprisingly easy. Quick question, when we say "post op day 4" do we count the day of surgery? Or starting from the day after?


Congratulations! Love the size on your body frame! The post op foggy feeling is normal and should subside soon. You may want to make a note in all your doctor's files about your blurred vision reaction to your meds. Just a precaution in case you have any surgery in the future. Happy healing and keep us updated!

I actually feel back to normal and not foggy THANK GOD because I was starting to worry! The blurred vision is only when I'm on my phone texting which is weird but it seems to be getting better as the days pass, they said its from the nausea patch and that I must have touched it then touched my eyes, but I made sure I washed my hand very good after I applied it, who knows. I like the size I got too because they don't look huge on my frame ;-)
Glad your feeling better ;)


hey boobie friends.. So I am feeling much better today, no longer have the "brain fog" feeling. My eyes are still a little blurry when looking at my phone but not as bad. BUT now I keep getting that electrifying "zinger" pain I'm my boobs when I'm tryna get out of bed or reach for something and HOLY MOLY do those hurt!!! These are normal right? I'm getting them so much I feel like its kinda numbing my boobs lmao


hi there, your looking great, sounds like your feeling good about your selection, did you go with high profile after all?

Thank u, yes we went with the HP and I'm so glad I did, I mean I don't know how the mod plus would have looked but I'm not complaint about how the HP look so I guess it was a good choice for me.

Feeling like me again!

Hey ladies! So I'm FINALLY feeling like me again!!! I am still sore tho, especially cause I'm always non stop, so by the end of the day I'm ready for Motrin, ice and a bed lol, how long before they aren't sore anymore?? Also I went to my post op visit yesterday and it was pretty quick, he said everything looks good, changed my sterry strips and told me to keep them on till they fall off, don't go back for another 5 weeks (is that normal?) and he said NO MASSASING???? Anyone else not have to massage? All I see on this site is everyone saying how they have to do them and my ps said its no needed. I mean every ps is different and has their own way of doing things so I guess I should just go by what he says? My boobs are still pretty hard and my right one is so much higher then my left! Aggravating!!! Will they even out??? Happy 4th of July everyone!!


I think each doctor has their own method. I've been watching other doctors massage videos and they all tell you to massage different ways . I have read something about textured implants you don't massage .. Your lucky I have to message every two hours . It's getting annoying already and time consuming but when I dont they start to stiffen up so I figure I better do as I'm told .... They are getting softer though .. I have another appointment next Tuesday my last appointment the RN said they were to tight so I needed to see the doctor... But I'm not really in pain anymore . They are it itchy .. Stretching I guess ...

Hi cutie, is it textured? Hwo it feel? Can you jiggle your new tatas? I'm still thinking between textured or smooth. Did doc allowed you to msg them? And why do you choose textured btw? Thanks xx
  • Reply
Hey girl! I got textured but I didn't make that decision my surgeon did, he said I have little soft tissue and textured has less of a chance to ripple, I can not giggle my new tatas yet but soon enough lol, I don't think smooth or textured really makes a difference in how the look tho, does it? My dr actually told me not to massage them, he did give me a strap that I could wear a few hours a day to help them to drop but I've wore it once for a hour because I can't stand it lol

17 days post op

So I haven't wrote a review because I feel like no one leaves comments anymore after the BA but this site WAS great for before getting surgery, why is that? Anyways nothing much is happening over here just waiting patiently for my boobs to drop and fluff, still a little sore and tight at times, and my boobs are sensitive to the touch like even my shirt rubbing against them is a annoying feeling, doesn't hurt just annoying. My sterry strips still haven't fallen off, I'm wondering how my scars look. Well that's it ladies I'm gonna post some pics


I loveeee your results! They look amazing

OMG where has the time gone??

So I'm 5 weeks post op and feeling GREAT! No more morning boob or no soreness, only thing I still have is a little numbness from the nipple down, It just feels weird but I expected that, it gets better as time passes, how long before its not like that tho? U can't wait to go back to the gym next week! I've been eating like shit lately lol with everyone having cookouts and me not going to the gym I've been SLACKING LOL! My scars are very thin but I wanna go buy silicone strips but I don't wanna spend a ton of money so any suggestions on where to get them? My dr said CVS?


I got them in Walgreens,they were on sale.You look great by the way.Love your result!!!

Aww thanks girl!

Went and got sized today!

So I couldn't help but to go to VS today and get sized. Although they might change I don't think the size will change. They measured me at at 32D or 34C, they said they are pretty much the same. That's what size I thought I was by looking at them. I went and bought the 32 D because hey I paid alot of money for these girls lol. I got exactly what I asked my surgeon for, I told him I wanted to be a full C small D, I didn't want to look top heavy because I'm a small girl, and I'm very happy with my results and how they proportion my body, I'm gonna post a pic of my bra, very comfy by the way and not expensive at all!!! I used to buy the $50 bras but I didn't want to spend that incase my size changes, plus I don't need all that extra push up and padding so I can buy the cheaper ones now lol, this bra was $30 and it came with a matching black and pink panties for $30 and I had a $10 off a bra coupon :-) I also am gonna post a pic from about 3 weeks ago and a pic from yesterday so u can see how much they have changes with dropping and fluffing


They look awesome!! So natural looking now. :)

6 week post op visit

Today I went to my 6 week post op appt. he said everything looks great. I feel great too and love my new boobs. I can feel the bag tho on my left boob, like on the bottom half of my left boob kinda near my nipple, feels weird and squishy, can't see it at all tho so if I didn't tell u to feel it no one would know, anyone else experience this? Not a big deal just wondering. Besides that I have absolutely no complaints, my boobs are still a little numb to the touch, not too much tho and my nipples still get hard over anything lol


wow they do change in shape from right after surgery...beautiful work..who was your surgeon?

Dr Micheal Tantillo from Boston mass
You look amazing! I love how you did the comparison of when you first got them to three weeks after that really shows a lot! I was very nervous about my doctor saying he wants me to get high profile but yours look great! They don't sit far apart on your chest at all they look really nice
