Who Doesn't Love Boobs? - Duluth, MN

I had a baby in 2009 and lost what little breast tissue I had. I felt very self-conscious and always bought push-up bras and shirts that hid my flat chest. I had my surgery 4/24/12. I chose 325cc silicone implants (Allergan Natrelle style 20), HP, smooth and round. I wanted a natural look and that's definitely what I got. I went from a 34A to a 34DD and couldn't be happier! I finally feel like a woman! :)

Wanted to add that I went under the muscle with the inframammary incision.

I spoke to my surgeon today and my next appointment has been moved up to mid-January. I was originally told that until it had been a year after surgery that he wouldn't consider a revision just because that's the time window that they prefer to leave for the healing process. I called back again today and spoke to my coordinator, she understood how I felt and did recognize that at about 6-9 months most would say that the healing process is complete but they prefer the 1 year mark. She said that my surgeon knew that I was unhappy and wasn't pleased so he would be willing to talk about my options with me and ultimately if a revision was what I felt was necessary then he'd do it.
I feel so relieved because I was feeling like they didn't understand where I was coming from but I'm happy he is willing to understand my perspective. :)
I'm thinking that I might need to discuss a small change in size on the left side. I have a rib on that side that pokes out just slightly so that also pushes up the implant as well as it being on the heart side. So I'm thinking if I go to a slightly smaller implant like a 300cc or so it'll help to balance it out on top and then the bottom can be nice a full with the pocket opened up!

I'm meeting with my surgeon to discuss my revision surgery and schedule it too so that's not too far away!. It's not a huge deal but I'm uncomfortable with having 2 boobs that I feel are pretty opposite of each other. Thank you for all the kind comments! I do appreciate it!
My revision will be costing my $2600, and looking to drop lefty and create more lower-pole fullness to match my right side.
I'm also adding a few new photos too but nothing has really changed! :P
I can't wait for BooBieFul! :D

Dr. Kubat and his team at St. Luke's Plastic Surgery Associates are fabulous! They're very attentive, great with pre and post-operative care! I'm having some issues with my left implant, it's not dropped yet (at almost 8 months post-op..eek) and they've been great about working with me, aggressive massage firstly, then we're going to explore the options. He understood what I wanted and always invited me to ask questions. I liked that he always gave his professional opinion and would also explain why. I found them online and had my consultation, I'd recommend to anyone looking for an augmentation. :)
