Before/After Pic 7 weeks PO Natrelle 410

Hi Girls, so happy that I found this forum. I'm 30yrs 5.5ft and 49kg. No kids. I suffered from a hormone issue that caused my boobs not to grow. When I was 19 I was asked to be a model for plastic surgeons in training - which was fab. Boobs were small enough after (just 180g) but I was the happiest girl back then. Well now 11 years on I have to get them changed and I am soooo scared. Totally worried that the PS can't get them done as pretty as they are now. I am actually from Germany but living in Ireland now - so will get it done in Ireland as well. I am booked in for the 28th of March. Mixed feelings! I would really appreciate comments from girls who got them done the second time but obviously any other tips, tricks, comments are appreciated too

Hey ya boobie friends. Hope you all are doing well. Still 23 days to go and can't think of anything else but my new pair :) even in work I'm just checking your pictures and stories, sizes...
Decided to get them a bit bigger than they are now but don't have a clue what the best size is. Would love a full C cup (now I am a small C with 180g).
My surgeon recommended Natrelle 410, does anyone know about them?

Hi Ladies, hope you are all keeping well. Had my...

Hi Ladies, hope you are all keeping well. Had my pre-op appointment today and finally made a decision on the implant. I will go for the anatomic ones. Did some research here and on european sites, have to say that in Europe the more natural look is wanted and that is what I want. Size wise I will let my PS decide. Told him how I want them to look like and he will do his best to make them the way. Now, 2 more weeks of waiting.
Any recommendations what I should prepare?

Hello again. Hope you are all doing well. Still...

Hello again. Hope you are all doing well. Still six days to go for me and getting more nervous every minute. Last night I spoke to a friend who asked me if I remember the last time after I got it done... I must have called her in tears and told her how sore my body was. I don't have any recollection of that conversation :( anyhow, I hope this time it won't be as bad.
Can you girls give me a bit of advise what I should definitely prepare?
I got 2 front closure bras already and will do a major clean Monday, Tuesday but other than that nothing else really planned (so far)...
I will give you and update again possibly a day before surgery with a few more pics as well.

It's my turn tomorrow. Not feeling well at all....

It's my turn tomorrow. Not feeling well at all. Hope that all will work out just fine but still so worried now. Ah well, no going back for me anyways as it has to be done. Girls, you have been a great support. Thank you so much! Surgery will be tomorrow between 2pm-6pm (Irish time). Might write a quick update in the morning. If not: see you on the other site :) x

In hospital for the last two hours. Got my bloods taken and waiting for a general check-up now. It all feels like being in a dream, doesn't feel real at all. The surgery will possibly be around 3.30pm Irish time- so another 3hrs to wait. Wish me luck girls x

In my room waiting for the last hour to be picked up. Waiting really is not my thing. Hubby is great, sitting here patiently and quiet :) calming me down as much as he can.
See you on the other site xxx

Hi Ladies. Survived surgery but out of it now. Will update tomorrow.

Good morning Ladies. 6am in Dublin and didn't sleep well at all. Woke up every hour and quite awake now. Had to go to the Toilet a coule of times and I am so happy that I am in a hospital as I could not have left the bed by myself. My respect goes out to all the girls who are getting it done in day clinics.
Haven's seen my new assetts yet but I can tell you - they do not like me at all and hurt a good bit.
My PS said that the 2nd time usually is worse than the 1st time-painwise.
Got a terrible cough as well, I think from the tube, which makes me almost cry everytime I cough.
Omg I sound like a Baby. Sorry girls I am not a winer normally.
Will write a proper update later when I spoke to the PS to find out what happened during surgery and what size I have in.
Till then, lots of Love

Hi girls, time for an update. I am out of the...

Hi girls, time for an update. I am out of the hospital today and just on the couch since I arrived back at home.
My surgery was totally different to what I expected. First of all I thought that my old implants were partly under and over the muscle- wrong... They were over. Quite a big capsule developed in my left boob and just a small one in the right. All was removed during surgery. My PS planned to use the existing pockets but because they were over the muscle he decided to create new ones. Then the implants, I expected Allergan style 410MF (teardrop) max 255g each- he used 375g so way more than I wanted. But he said that it will look the way I anticipated. Time will let me know... Haven't been able to see them yet as I am in absolute pain which has not gotten better since surgery. Any advice on other options for pain relief? I will upload photos as soon as I am brave enough to take some :)

Hi girls, hope you all are well. Finally got some...

Hi girls, hope you all are well. Finally got some pics taken. Boobs are still very hard, sensetive, bruised and numb :(
Wondering what size I'll be now after surgery- what would you say? Like they look huge in the surgical bra but not when that's removed...
Oh yes, does anyone know how to sleep better? I wake up every hour or so with massive pains in my back and neck. Looking forward to hearing from you x

Before/after 7 weeks po Natrelle 410

Before/After Pic 7 weeks PO Natrelle 410

Haven't updated my profile in ages... Sorry! :(
It has been 7.5weeks now and I had my 3rd PO appointment last Thursday.
Pictures were taken which I have updated here, have a look!
I am not too sure what to think of the result. Husband likes it though ;)
Have to say that I am still every day on this page and check out your results and stories. It was and still is a great help to see how others are doing.
What else can I say? Well, recovery has been good so far. First 3 weeks PO weren't that easy but not awful either. I stopped taking painkillers after about 1.5 weeks PO and went back to work (office job) after 2 weeks.
I had a small hematoma in my left breast but that disappeared after around 3 weeks, so I worried more than needed.
It would be fabulous to get a few opinions from you girls. What do you think - before/after?
And if any of you have questions in regards to anatomic implants - go ahead, ask me, sure that's what this forum is for.
Oh, one more question, can any of you girls tell me when to start working out and what sort of work out is recommended? I just joined the gym there on Friday (whoohoo to me) and do not have a clue about work outs, don't want to tell the trainers that I got a boob job done...
Thanks a lot girls!

When can I wear underwired bras?

I had one of my PO appointments last Thursday and my PS said that I can wear any bra from now on. So yesterday and today I wear underwired bras but today in work I had dragging pain (kind of pulling) which is still there. Changed now back to a sports bra. Did anyone experience something similar? Do you think it's the bra?

Photos just over 5 months po

Hi Grace, great to hear from you. All good here. How have you been? All back to normal for you?

I just told my trainers that I had torn a muscle / ligament in my chest and had to do no chest for 3 months. They seemed content with that. :) My PS said 3 weeks then I could go back to exercise.... now I just wear 2 bras to maintain no bounce.

Thanks a mil. I'll have my assessment with one of the personal trainers today and will use that one :)

I think they look awesome!!! Can't really comment on the workout part as I haven't gotten mine done yet. But from what I've read most girls can return to working out 3 weeks post op. upper body work out is more like 6 weeks but I think you should be in the clear if you have your implants under the muscles I would def research what you can and cannot do as I do know there is a difference when place above the muscle. Good luck and once again you look great!!

Babsi- what did your ps say? You ok chick? Xx
  • Reply
Well, he said it's a hematoma and I should massage it and it will disolve itself. Feels so weird though, like a marble under my skin- don't really fancy that to burst. Still in a bit of pain as well and numb especially on the sides. PS said that because of a large capsular he had to take out and a new pocket that he created under the muscle this would be "normal". Anyhow, how are you getting on? x

Hi Grace, how are you? Not too well here, have some kind of a lump in my left boob and left is also still numb. Getting a bit worried :( will have my post op on Thursday and hope my PS will not tell me bad news... x
  • Reply
Oh my! I hope everything turns out ok! Sorry to hear this! Keep me updated plz. Have you called the office?
  • Reply
Thanks. No, haven't called as I know he is in his practice Thursdays only so it wouldn't make a difference. Will keep you posted.
  • Reply
Hi Grace, PS said that the lump is mist probably a hematoma which should disolve itself with time. He recommended to massage it but I am a bit worried that I can burst it. Aaaaaahhh disgusting! Fingers crossed it will just disappear... How are you?
  • Reply
Oh gosh! I hate to hear that, people say those are quiet painful.... I hope it dissolves and you have no more problems! But if he says massage then you probably should... I'm doing good. More energy now which is nice, I hated feeling weak! I have my next follow up on the 15, I'm hoping to be cleared to start working out again :) I have managed to pull a muscle tho...
  • Reply
Oh no, hope it's not too painful. Can't believe how eager you Americans are to go back doing work outs asap after surgery :) I don't mind at all waiting for another month or two - haha I'm soooo lazy atm I am back to work on Monday and can't imagine working 9hrs-12hrs/day again. Still in pain which is totally managable but very uncomfortable. Did you go out yet?

How are you feeling now? I hope the arnica is helping :)
  • Reply
Sorry Grace, I have seen your msg just now. I am better but still not 100%. What about you? I got Arnica Gel and the tablets and that really helped. Thanks a mil x
  • Reply
It's ok this site isn't the easiest to use.... I'm glad you are feeling a little better! So happy the arnica is helping you! It's wonderful stuff! I'm feeling great, still a little tender and a have a shooting pain once in a while but nothing that a good ole Tylenol hasn't been able to fix. I'm still going to sleep propped up but I wake up every few hours either flat or on my side lol. Still haven't managed to sleep thru the night completely. Not because I have pain I just can't get comfy.
