I've wanted boobs since I was a flat chested teen, lol. I'm a mom of 3 kids, nursed them all for a total of 7 years. I'm done having kids and am ready to have boobs. I'm 33, 120lbs and 5'3. I decided to go with 325cc hp, silicone. I'm sure I will have a ton of questions while the big day gets near. I've been on here reading a ton so Its nice to finally post :) I will add a photo tonight when on actual computer.

So I am kind of confused. I called the drs office today to ask some questions which helped but still need help. Thinking 325cc or 350cc. I don't want the stripper/ too fake look. They told me that my breast base was an 11 so I had to go with HP in order to get the volume or I could go mod and go with a smaller size. I don't want to go too small and regret it.

Hi, I have exact same stats as you and looks like same amount of breast tissue. When is your surgery date? I'm thinking of 350 to 400 cc hp

March 7th :)
High Profile. If that's what your dr wants to use its because you have a narrow chest (like me :) and since you don't want that real round fake look. A high profile has a smaller base and a wider top. Gives a more natural look. I went from a small B to a 34 D ( 455cc HP) and I love them so far lol 15 days PO :) good luck!

I'm starting to get really nervous but am very excited. I decided on 325cc at my last appt but worry that it won't get me to my final goal of full c. I can't wait to try on the sizes again. Surgery is in a week!!

So excited for you, boogie buddy!! Your breast base is a little smaller than mine, mine being 13. With an 11 in base and your frame I would guess you are looking at a D. I don't know for sure. Of course at first expect them to be ENORMOUS! :) but trust in your gut and your Drs advice and experience! I'm so happy for you and super excited because we are getting so close!!!! Loved reading your story again.... I read so many on here, that sometimes stories get mixed in my head! Haha best of luck!!!

Hello. I am 5 ft 8 and 124 lbs and I was right about your same size and frame before I had my surgery. I did 350 cc and I ended up a 32DD right after surgery and then settled into a 32D. I wanted to post this because people who are very slender/narrow all their lives it's a large adjustment to go up to that size. It's very nice looking and I love the size but it took me a while to adjust to it. I just wanted to let you know that I was going for a FULL C with my size and ended up with a D cup :)

So I'm starting to check out the goods and I don't see the upper fullness that most have. I got 400cc, hp, under the muscle. Just seems like all the volume is under my boon. I'll post a pic once I get my laptop out.

I just woke up at 1am in pain. Took my pills so hopefully they will kick in soon. I fell asleep with the ice pack one and have to wait for it to freeze to use it again. I'm going to get another ice pack to rotate with today. Not enjoying sleeping in the chair. Who is actually sleeping more flat in a bed? I checking out my boobs to look for some cleavage and I don't see any :( kind of sad about that. Anyways, all in all, I'm doing ok.

Oh, forgot to mention that my ps has me doing chicken wing stretches every hour when awake. You make a chicken wing with your arms and rotate in huge circles. I am supposed to do them at least 6 times on each side, each hour. Anyone else doing something similar.

Do any of you ladies have a bloated tummy? I just went to shower (post op day #2 and noticed the tummy. I would info if you have thing. By the way, do you find the wrap was tight because it was putting so much pressure on me and now that I removed them and put on a sports bra, I feel so much better.

I finally got some sleep last night. I woke in a bit of pain but the sleep felt amazing :) I'm feeling so much better today. I still haven't been able to go potty. I've taken three stool softners and drank an entire bottle of mag citrate. Hopefully today will be the day that I cam go, lol. I've been trying to drink a ton of water too.

Hello fellow boobie support friends / I'm finally feeling so much better now - kept my dinner down finally last night . Checked out if Hostpital last night and slept much better proped up in bed - bum still sore though - is any one laying flat / or are we all sitting up in bed - my tummy looks like I'm 5 mts prego too - and my strap is a pain , so I guess we are all feeling the same - I'm still nervous to touch them , and look my hubby took some photos yesterday and they looked so swollen - my Dr was really happy with the result and just said to relax and use ice - happy with incision size - can not wait to have a shower ... Thanks for all your support girls - it would be a very scary / lonely experience if we did not have each other to talk to xxxxx

My ps told me that I can shower the next day after the surgery and remove the wrap. He also said that I could use the sports bra. It has been a LOT more comfortable. It has been getting better and today is post op day 3 and it has been good so far. I woke this morning without to much discomfort so I think this a good sign. But my tummy continues to be bloated and it is giving me some discomfort I hope you ladies are healing well too!

Post op day 4. I woke up feeling great! Slept all night without any pain medication. Got up and straightened up the house a bit and made my own coffee. Yay!! Don't want to overdue it so I'm back relaxing in bed. My boyfriend bought me a maid groupon and they are coming today :) I bought a few recovery bras before surgery c and d cups. Don't think the d cups will work so I'm going to go exchange them today or tomorrow. Kind of bummed as I was hoping to be pushing a d. Guess I really did have small boobs to begin with. I cant wait for Thursday to get here so I can take this dumb strap off. Ugh. I guess I took it off in the middle of the night cause I woke with it off. Good thing I sleep propped up. I'll add a few more pics too. Oh, I can't stop going potty thanks to all the crap I took to poop, better out than in!!

Wow, your post-op pics look amazing! I'm going to be getting a little bit smaller (375), but hope they turn out looking that good. I'm scheduled for MM on 4/11. My BFF told me to get off the internet too because she said it's making me have too many questions! I was thinking that it was good to be informed, but I seem to be obsessed with reading everybody's posts! I'm so happy to see that on day 4 you are already feeling so well. Here's to continuing to do so well, it's inspiring.

That's exciting! Are you on the emotional roller coaster too or doing ok? I'm having good days and bad wondering if I'm doing the right thing. I want to do it, but feeling bad about the amount of money and recovery time and stress on the family. My husband says to do it, I think he wants them more than me! It will be fun to follow eachother since our surgeries are so close!

Just got back from a 2 mile slow walk, hubby walked the dog :) felt good to be outside. Today I've had burning sensations in my right breast, ouch. It comes and goes. I took a few new pics but nothing really changed. I don't think I'm all that swollen at this point. I only took one muscle relaxer today and that was after blow drying my hair. All in all the healing process hasn't been too bad, I expected worse.

So tomorrow I get to start massaging and only have to wear the strap at night(for one week). I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to not wear this strap, lol. I slept 14 hours last night without any pain meds. Things are much better now :) Still have burning on my right breast but I discovered that if I lightly massage it, it goes away. I am still using the arnica pills/gel and taking bromelain. I am also supposed to start taking vitamin e pills and massaging scar with the E oil. I forget if that's tomorrow or 3rd week. I'm so excited to have boobs!! I do question the size a bit. I went 400CC and the max I could have gotten is 425CC but I think these are a good fit for my frame.

It's been a week since my surgery. I'm feeling great. I went out this evening for some shopping, dinner and long walk since the weather was so awesome. I was tired after so I think I overdid it a bit. I came home and iced my boobs :) I bought a few new bras since I will be returning to work on Monday and didn't want to wear the medical bra. Posted a few pics of the new bras, all purchased from Target. I got a great deal :)

Happy one week anniversary! Pics look great and glad to hear your recovery is going so well! Love the bras you got!

Yeah, I did :). I only got the stretchy things, figured those would last regardless of the changes. I didn't spend more than $40 total so I was happy :). I actually didn't bruise at all, although I felt like I had major bruising under my boobs. Did you take off your tape yet? I was told that I could but I'm scared.

I'm 9 days out now and i'm feeling great. I do get pain under my boobs which is strange. Anyone else getting that? I have been walking a ton the last two days, it's so nice outside. I'm confused on the instructions my dr provided. He said that I can wear a wireless bra at 3 weeks. Not sure what I am actually allowed to wear in the meantime, the surgical bra, sports bra?? I guess I'll call on Monday. I will post new pictures tomorrow. Hope everyone else is doing great!!

Well, I went back to work today. I can't say it...

Well, I went back to work today. I can't say it was the easiest. I was exhausted and my boobs started to get achy half way through the day. Co-workers were great, only a few knew why I was gone. They decorated my desk and signed a little card... oh, and they gave me balloons and a tiny little balloon taped to the card. It was sweet! Oh, so I have a squeak in my boob :( when I massage it, it makes a little squeak and totally freaks me out. I read that it's normal, but I don't like it. I had to massage my boobs a few times today as they kept getting hard. I think the swelling is completely gone and more than likely they are done dropping. At least they look like it to me. They tend to look really big in these pictures but can easily be hidden in the clothes. I am still really bloated, despite eating healthy and drinking a ton of water. I also worked out yesterday just walked a mile and did 20 min on the stairs - I took it slow though. I can't wait to start running again and taking my yoga classes. Hope my surgery buddies are healing and enjoying their new friends :)

I am doing so much better :) I am back to the gym every morning, which feels sooooo good. Not lifting or doing anything that I really want to do, just light cardio but feels perfect, for now. I wake every morning with morning boob and hate it! Dread the mornings, lol. So I am now massaging 3 times a day with Emu oil, vit E drops twice a day orally, vit E rubbed on the incision, no lifting more than 15lbs - that's about it per the dr. I am supposed to start wearing a regular wire free bra next week. I've been wearing nothing but stretchy, cup free things. My new love is the bralette, so comfy. I wore a sports bra to work one day and totally regretted it, maybe it was too tight?? but I went home in so much pain. I can't wait to start lifting things. I really miss carrying my 3 year old. I do forget that I am not supposed to but the chest muscles certainly remind me when I do something that I am not supposed to. Oh, I can finally button my pants without hurting, lol... it's the little things. I feel like my boobs are small... however, I never wanted big, huge boobs. I could have gone with a 425 but that was the max that my dr would do. Everyone is telling me that the size looks perfect with my frame. I was 124 the day of the surgery and now I am up to 130. I remained bloated for over a week from the surgery and meds. Hopefully I can get back into a good routine and drop a few lbs. I bet I will be a lot happier with the size once I do. Anyways, here are a few new pics.

Omg! Im glad someone else had the bloating other than me. My stomach was practically flat before surgery...it's been 11 days post op n its still bloated! Wierd! U look great btw :) I got 450 HP under muscle and they have yet to drop. I still get stuff sometimes. My main complaint is my new fat stomach that was nonexistent prior to surgery! Eh i have hope itll go away and if it doesn't thats what exercise is for :) congrats on ur boobies!

Ha ha - I had a huge belly too , for a good 14 days - and I'm now 3 weeks and I'm still not the same, I think we are not using our core muscles at the moment as we are concentrating on just walking / keeping shoulders back ect - once we start working out let's hope it returns to the way it use to be :-) Other wise we will start reading reviews on lipo / tummy tuck ....

Hi! I'm only 3 weeks post if but wanted to tell you, I have no pain at all but I'm still sleeping in my back. I get on my side only for a minute to change position but I only can be on my side for very little because I get the type of pain you describe, in the middle and the sides. I didn't ask my Dr and not sure I want to know lol but I think we have internal stitches in those areas and they are still healing and pulling or at least is what I think. It's not bad pain it just feel like is sore when I try to be on my side but other than that I'm good and super happy!!! Sorry you still have problems breathing, I stated taking big breaths right away after I woke up from surgery. I was relieved because I was afraid about not been able to do it. I did had some air bubbles moving around my upper chest and even in the belly and took like almost 10 days or so for them to go away, it was a weird feeling but my nurse told me it was completely normal. Hope you feel better today. Big hug!!! XO

Today was my first post op run. I was 4 weeks last Thursday. I ran a mile and a half. It felt so strange running and feelings boobs, lol. Going to have to get used to that one. I wore a Nike full support sports bra, size small. It held things in place nicely. I am going to try the Tata tamer as well. My right boob aches and the muscle feels tight. I had to change my running posture slightly because the muscle kept flexing while running. I came home and took some Ibprofen, just in case it swells a bit. I ran outside and got a few double takes from drivers, silly men :) even my boyfriend drove by to see how they looked haha. I am running a half marathon in July so I'm happy that I can run comfortable. I hope this post helps the runners a bit ;)

I had my 1st consult yesterday and at this stage have decided on a very high profile (I'm very narrow chested) and 325cc. Now I'm thinking maybe I should go bigger?? Going to go back and try some bigger sizes :) thanks for your story!

Wow, ruining at 4 weeks. I am used to running every day and my doctor said I had to wait 6 weeks to get my heart rate above 100. I sure hope I hall quickly enough that he changes his mind. I'm going to be very sad if I gain weight because I can't go run.
