33 Yo, Mama of 4, Breastfed a Total of 9 Years! - Gastonia, NC

I have always known that I'd want my boobs done...

I have always known that I'd want my boobs done after I was finished having babies. The time has come! I'm a 33 years old, 5'4", 115lbs. Getting smooth saline implants, under the muscle. I am excited to see how my completely deflated breasts will fill out. I'm getting between 350-375 cc implant. I was very unsure of the "look" I wanted but then I realized, my boobs are uniquely mine and they will look like me, only better!

This community ROCKS!

I was freaking out a bit last night. I am a homeschooling mom and am on the leadership team of a very conservative organization. I got so worried about my new breast size after BA.... I don't want to be embarrassed of my breasts and look "sexy" at all times, kwim? I asked on here and was reassured that 375cc isn't too big and will still be able to look modest under clothes. I'm trying to upload pics but cannot get them from my Droid phone onto this site.

Some before pics...

Getting close and nervous!

I am at an emotional point in my cycle and last night I broke down about not wantingvto deal with the surgery and pain. I have a high pain tolerance and have been through lots of painful procedures but because this is voluntary, it just seems crazy!! I'm still very excited for the new curvy me, just ready to be on the other side.

Tomorrow is the big day!

Eeeeek, I've washed with antibacterial soap, filled my Rx....trying to relax...I may never sleep tonight!

Finished!

I am home and resting comfortably, Doc put in 380cc Allergan saline high profile. I love them already..haha :)
I also had a umbilical hernia fixed at the same time and that sucker hurts!

First Pics! Day of surgery

3 days out

My new boobs are coming along nicely! Post -op went well. My umbilical hernia is painful but I guess that's to be expected. I've had minimal pain in the actual breasts, tightness mainly. My shoulder muscles and lower back have strained pretty badly though. Looking forward to getting back to normal :)

I did sleep the night before, ha! I'm super bloated today (day 3) and have cabin fever!! Because I also had hernia surgery too, its hard for me to get around. I'm gonna put on a belly band and get out of here tonight!

Glad you slept but now hoping you got out of the house without overdoing it. Tinka's right, the bloating will subside...try to be patient. Easier said than done, right?!

I am starting to think that saline might be the way to go....they look so natural.....I am 5.3 and 120 pounds but not sure what size to go with....I have been given a range from 275 to 350 and it just seems so wide and different. I think I know I want to be at 300 at least but not sure if I should go bigger. I am so scared to be disappointed either way...I just want them to be perfect! Any comments or suggestions please? You look amazing!

It is so easy to be overwhelmed by the sizes, cc's, types of implants, etc. I looked at "wish boobs" and ended up frustrated until I realized that every woman's breasts are unique to them, implants help enhance what is already there. Don't try to recreate someone else's chest, just trust that your new shape will be beautiful :)

Congratulations! You're going to love them even more in a few weeks when you get some drop and fluff going on! Isn't it nice to have that, "I have awesome boobs!" feeling? Happy for you!

Thanks! I went with the saline because I am a natural living mama and I feel reassured that if my implants were to leak, my body would not be harmed by the saline.

Cookie, my surgery is the day after yours...lol we can recover together. Im 5'4 129 and getting 400-450 with a lift. I too am/was a homeschool mom. Son just graduated in may so I am done being a mom and gonna get a life. 400 is not too much for our height, so 375 is even a tiny bit less. who cares if they notice, tell them you bought new bras, because you will.
