Hi everyone :) I've just joined after cruising...

Hi everyone :)
I've just joined after cruising around this site for a while. I live in Queensland Australia. Mummy to 3 kids and I've finally made the decision to look at a BA. I never had boobies when young, they always seemed a wonder to me, then when I had my kids and was feeding I had big D's!

Now after all the babies are grown I'd love to get some shape back. I went to see a great doctor yesterday and luckily I don't need a lift, I'm just a 12B not too much sag. I'd love a full D or DD and doc measured my BW around 13.5. I'm not keen for the bolt on look and really want my boobs close together.

He has suggested Moderate Plus, sil unders around 450-500 to get the look I showed him. He said the wider and bigger implants will give me the claevage and natural look I'm after.I'm going crazy looking at all the various pics. Anyone out there with similar size I can compare? I'm athletic, 5ft 8. When I tried on the implants under the crop top, I guess I was looking more towards the 500 as being wide the smaller ones seemed to look a bit lost on me.

Any suggestions, plus they do look a bit smaller under don't they? Would love some advice. I'm seeing another doc in 2 weeks, so it will be good to compare. Hoping to have boobies by June! Would love any feedback girls, I'm excited and scared xoxo

Ok...I"m doing it!!! I saw the second doc today....

Ok...I"m doing it!!! I saw the second doc today. He was lovely, but my gut instinct instinct is telling me the first one...so I rang up and booked in for 24th May!! OMG I'm actually doing it!! I need loads of assistance and reassurance girls to get my size right. New doc measured me at 13.9..so even wider than the first. I tried on a few different sizes today. Unfortunately they didn't have any Mentor implants to try, so they put in comparative Allergan Natrelle implants. Any comments on these? The 485 mods, were about the same proportions as the 500 mod pus in Mentor and they looked good. The 450s also looked good, but I'm thinking I should go with the bigger as I'm going to lose a bit of size and look more like the 450s in the end?? I was amazed at the difference of 50cc...I didn't think it would be so different? I was silly, I should have taken some pics to show everyone. Might take some with my rice bags in!!!

I have Doc appointment tomorrow to choose the...

I have Doc appointment tomorrow to choose the size!! Yikes! I'm bringing the dear husband so he can see me and give me his honest opinion.I just don't want to wake up in hospital and have him say..JESUS...they're massive you didnt tell me they were this big!! Only joking!! ...He's very good at being honest, and I'm sure we will come to a great agreement. He says go with what I want and he'll grow to love them ..( he's not much of a fake boobie guy)...but I'm sure when they're put in front of his face he won't mind LOL! Still nervous though! Just need to talk to the doc in regards to the slight size difference I have. Its barely noticeable ( only around 40cc) according to docs notes. I have the option of putting in a different sized implant on one side, but I've seen so many instances where it then goes the opposite way and looks even worse! To complicate things, in Australia Mentor only does its textured memeory gel mod+ in 50cc differences. That would then mean 450/500, or 500/550 and not too sure about that! Thinking I might just stick with 2 500s and have a slight diiference. I guess when I talk to Doc tom he will guide me. Any thoughts on this girls???

Ok girls, I finally have decided on the size and I...

Ok girls, I finally have decided on the size and I feel much better now! I went with my husband and we tried on all the different size implants that will fit my BW and we decided on the 500cc moderate plus mentor silicone implants, Thankfully my DH liked how they looked on me and said they suited my frame.He was even pleasantly surprised at how squishy they felt!! I tried on the 450s and both he and the doc thought the bigger ones looked better. I've also decided to stick with 2 implants the same size and just be a bit different naturally as 40cc is not too much. The doctor also said if I liked the look of the 500cc that I could have 550cc (due to my wide BW still being in range), but we decided against it. I had my 500cc rice sizers with me as well that I have been trying at home and the real 500cc were just a bit bigger when we lined them up on the table, so I'm sure that the 500cc will be perfect for me. I know now that I'm happy with my decision!!! YAY!!. With what boob I have now, I'm going to be super happy with any size boob as long as they look nice :). The date is set for friday 24th May.....so boobies here I come.

Downsizing to 450cc mod plus.

Hello ladies, just thought I would let you know that I'm feeling much better after my size freak out early last week. I've decided to tone it down just a fraction to the 450cc ( mentor silicone mod plus). I went to a sports store where I lady showed me her 500cc that she had for 10 years and 16kg heavier, It was a bit of a shock to me, so I rang and talked with the surgeon and I'm now going with 450s instead. I feel happier inside and I think you have to come to that feeling of peace in your mind before you do this major thing. I was feeling a bit uneasy and I think it was because I was scared I was going a bit too big. I just want some lovely full boobs, hopefully sort of natural looking, and as close together as my doc can safely manage for me LOL. I know alot of people would say stick with the bigger, but I know I've got to carry them around!! I still like to be active and wear cute dresses, and I can always push them up with a good bra if they're smaller than I imagine.... been doing that for all my life anyway!!!! I have most stuff now...neck pillow, gel ice packs, bandeau bra band, and soft sports bras ready. Don't have bendy straws yet...any other suggestions??? Big hugs girls and thanks for your support. I'm feeling excited more than nervous at the moment!! I was out at a BBQ and was talking to 2 yummy mummies who recently had their boobs done. They both looked fantastic, and I can't wait to look the same way...Hopefully!!!! :)

Finally a pic.

I hope this picture works off my phone.

boobs before

I hope my phone does this one the right way up.

Ok. I had a fun day today before work. Got some more last minute things and also went into a lingerie store. I said I wasn't going to buy anything before the op but the la senza 12dd was only $15.

14d bra

I put on a 14d bra over the top of my crop top and I think it might be a bit small...yee ha!!

Looking good in 14d. I'm so relieved. I thought they looked a bit small but this 14d bra should definitely get me the 12dd that I wanted. Still wanted to be able to wear cute bras not granny ones lol. My husband was nicer this morning and actually went for a grope before he left for work. ...there's hope he'll grow to love them he he. Hope all you other lovelies are doing well. Let me know hugs Shelly xoxo

change by the hours

More boob shots while spaced out!

my old 10c bra :)

The old 10c bra ain't going anywhere on these girls lol!!!!!

got the band today

Hey girls. Had my first post op today and got the band to help push the implants down a bit. They're just riding too high and I can feel my original breast tissue and nipples kind of falling of the end of them ( snoopy) which I don't want. I have to wear band for 6 weeks so hopefully it works. I think I can see a difference already hopefully. It hurts like hell. Plus im also in the front zip top to bring the girls together. Ahhh the things we do for love of good boobies :)

with and without band

As you can see difference with the band on. Hope it works.

still not looking good

Felt a bit down today. Went off the drugs so I can poo and have had band on all day which hurts bad. Can still see my boobs just falling off implants. Not happy today.

snoopy

You can see difference when I pull shoulders back. You can see how worried I am about my old boob st bottom of implant. It's dual plane so you can see my original breast tissue at the end.

might be seeing a difference

I am massaging heaps and got myself strapped down all the time and I think it's making a difference already. I'm going to keep it up religiously to get these girls looking good. They even look bigger as they were on my neck lol!!! I'm off all drugs now. Just doing panadol at night. Feeling more myself today. Thanks for all your lovely support ladies xoxo

shopping with the girls

Hey girls. .better day today. Im crying in the lingerie store with the lady giggling with me...tears of joy as she puts on 10E and 12dd bras on me. F...cking ecstatic. Xoxo

47 today. ..Happy birthday to me

Well these are the best present a girl could get!

nice present

Just putting on my birthday present

18 days post op

Hi girls:) just thought I'd share an update with you. It's been a tough week with the strapping and massage but I think I can see a difference finally. They're actually starting to look like boobs naked lol. Tthe implants feel like they are moving down into the lower part of my breast and finally my nipples don't feel like they're hanging on the end. Any one else out there waiting to drop all I can say is strap when you can bear it and massage heaps. I still get very sore in the night and morning. I feel better when I take a panadol at night still. I drove the car for first time today and go back to work on Thursday. I really think I needed all this time off. I went out with a girlfriend on the weekend to a high tea and put the girls in a bra and frocked up..and I felt fantastic. Think that the Dh is really liking these new additions too...which is an unexpected bonus. Generally im good..just hoping to drop more but at least I have faith now. Big hugs out there to the boobie buddies and thanks for the lovely birthday messages . Hugs Shelly xoxo

some more pics

A few more pics. ..feeling more normal.

4 weeks today

Hi girls. ..well 4 weeks have gone so fast. Still having pains and trouble with sleep. My dropping is happening and they are starting to look like boobs. ..what's left of them. The swelling had gone down mostly and they feel smaller than when I was feeding. I can't believe these are 450cc. I find myself crying some days and try to not let my husband see. He likes them but I wanted a set of full boobs to look at naked . They look fine in bras...gonna need push ups to make me feel better. My boobs don't look anything like the full boob wish boob pics I showed my doc. I was originally going with 500cc and dropped down to 450cc. My doc told me I was being wise as I thought I was going to end up with massive boobs?? I think I must have needed 550 or 600 to get my look??? Don't know anymore. I thought that's what you pay 11k for....Surely he would have had some idea? Im having a real winge today girls. Sorry to vent but im sure you can understand. Xoxo

Feeling a bit better.

Hi lovely boobie friends and thanks for all the lovely messages and concern. I sure did have a few down days and I guess for newbies reading this. ..that this emotional side of things is a possibility and a big adjustment. It's weird looking at your new breasts and trying to see if they feel big or small. It's hard to do. I saw my doc on Saturday and had a good cry. He was very nice and wants me to be happy. He told me my boobs look great. ..yeh of course he would. He said that I need to start enjoying them. .so to start wearing bras including under wires so that I can get an idea of how I feel about them. He said to dress them up and get them out!! I guess in a way he's right. I have felt a lot better this week and they look great in bras. He told me that I don't need the band anymore thank goodness. ..and my nipples have lifted up a bit higher this week as the bottom part of my boob fills out a bit more to look like a boob. I went out with some work friends and they said they look great. ..one guy said that he doesn't know where to look. .so I guess they can't be that small. I also cooked dinner for my dh and a mate last night. I bought some " wife beater" tops yesterday so I put one on lol. I know that this friend is a self confessed boob man. .so I thought it would be good to give the girls a run and get his opinion. Well I can say that he could not get his eyes off them. .said that they were big and they were "money well spent!!". That certainly helped me feel good. I think I just have to try to embrace them as part of me. I know they're not my dream boobs but they're still nice. I'm lucky to be alive after the surgery and hopefully no complications so far. .so I have to be thankful that they are better than the old boobs. Doc said I might need another 150cc to get the look I wanted. It makes me kinda angry as when I downsized to 450cc he told me I was being wise. Why didn't he say that they would be way smaller than my goals. Doc said he lets women choose their own implants size so that he is never blamed for being wrong. Problem is. .where is my advice for 11k? I am seeing him again in a month and we can discuss it further. I have no idea if he's likely to offer any revision or discounts?? At least in 10 or 15 years when I have to upgrade I might go a bit bigger then lol!! So yep...thats me. Need to come to terms that they are not so small and just have to deal with the disappointment I feel when I see them naked. Big hugs girls and thanks for your support ..Xoxo

my old bikini

Just some pics. The old bikini looks lovely. .a really natural look but certainly not the wow factor I was hoping for. ..gonna need some help with push ups for that. Lol. Wife beater with push up bra looks good...once again. . Gotta use the push up that I was hoping to not need anymore. X

out to lunch

Pic of the boobs in a bra. .they look better dressed up.

still getting there with my mental perception of my boobs. lol.

Hi girls. .feeling a bit better of late. I still have days when I'm not sure about the size. ..but trying to get a grip and trying to see that they are way better than before.

my boobs look natural

The girls today. .think it's 5 weeks now. They look very natural. ..perhaps just a bit too natural for me...just wish they were bigger but for now just have to try to embrace them. Lol :)

some fun shots.

Got dh to take some fun shots tonight which im sure he enjoyed. Also took some pictures of the 5 dollar bikini.

nips are lifting.

other bikini top

Here is the other bikini top..its softer cup but still makes my boobs look pretty full which I'm happy about. The bottom is a cute bikini with frills across the top. Yesterday I went to simone perele and I got sized there at 10f. ..so guess the girls aren't too small...just look small when I look down at them...lol...goddam boobie greed!!!!

boobies!!!

Just trying on a corset to wear for a work function...mmm interesting. Gonna need something a bit bigger for these puppies lol.

taking the girls out!!

Well as promised. ..here are dome photos of me mucking up out at our work night...sorry no husbands allowed...such a pity he he. Got to dress up the girls...had a very messy night...I was chucking while making the kids school lunches. ..real classy. But was great to let my hair down. I love my boobies but still doesn't stop me from wishing they were a bit bigger. Damn boobie greed. :)

it's been a while since I posted an update.

Hi girls...its been a while since I posted any pics. I could certainly post good bra pics but thought I would just do a string bikini and the girls out lol. They have definitely changed heaps over the last month and probably look a bit bigger. I can feel more weight at the bottom of my boobs which I like the feeling of. My boobs look lovely in a bikini but I'm almost sure now that I will have a revision at some point to give me a fuller look. It's because I'm tall and have a wide bw. I would have loved to have this sorted by summer so that people won't know...but its going to be too hard to save enough in time. I have seen my doc once more and I'm seeing him again in October to discuss more. Everything feels normal and I love having boobs so much . Time will tell if I move forward with this or if I keep these. It's a tough decision. ..I got a bit teary the other day when I saw how good a revision looked...I think my husband understands how I feel now so that's a big help even though he loves the boobs I have :)

date night

Last night was the first time ever that our 3 kids have had a sleep.over and therefore a night to ourselves. Put on a dress and heels and went out to dinner. This is my dress with a fairly well padded ..we're talking a good amount of foam inside girls ...and push up to push the boobies together. When I wear this dress without a bra I look so flat...the miracles of lingerie. I wish they looked like this without all the padding. I have been an expert at making look bigger all my life...didn't want to have to keep doing it and strangling my boobs to make them look juicy lol!!

Shelly nearly 5 months post op now

Hi girls. .just thought I'd share another few pics in just my crop top. Boobs look very natural but I'm still really having a tough time with size issues. These are 450cc mod plus and as you can all see that my body really took up those ccs. I have another doctors appointment coming up next tuesday. I really hope that I can have heaps of questions answered this time. I'm feeling like if I don't do something about getting the boobies that I wanted then it is going to become a bit of an emotional issue for me. I really want to feel like they are wow and amazing. ..not just nice. Any suggestions girls...need hugs tonight.

latest docs visit.

Hi ladies. .just thought I would let you know how the docs appointment went. Well quite interesting. .but it has left me feeling very confused and perhaps a bit down. I guess he is a good surgeon and wanted to make me aware of all the risks of going bigger and basically tried his best to talk me out of it...I guess I have to value that he is not just after the money and he cares for what he does. I guess apart from the usual risks involved with surgery. .he also told me that the 650cc would look alot worse over time. Skin stretching..possible rippling...couldn't bring them in closer therfore more of that bolt on look and also much higher chance of scar tissue and 20 % chance to.lose nipple sensation. ..it seemed all bad and no positives. He said I risk a very good job being changed and would I still be happy....ahhh you can see how I feel. I was able to confront him on his lack of advice on my choice of implant vs the wish pics I had chosen. I even showed them to his nurse finally as well. She has had a revision herself as she wanted hers bigger from when he did them too. She also agreed with me that my right boob does go more out to side than my left one..I looked at various implants and he said that 650cc high profile would be suitable for me if I decide despite the negatives. I looked very enviously at the larger implants lined up on the table next to a 450cc implant. It was also good to see that the 500cc that had been doing my head in really didn't look much bigger ...so in reality I really need a sh..t load more silicone in me to give me big boobies as I'm tall with wide shoulders. I showed his nurse how loose my maternity bra was on me with my current boobs and she couldn't believe it. I have no idea what size it was as the size label has faded...but must have been a G I think lol!
So...now I'm just shit scared of what I could potentially stuff up...still wanting bigger boobies. Blaaaaaaa I'm having a big whinge to you all. His nurse is going to spend some time with me in 2 weeks time playing on my docs new vectra machine...I can finally look at some computer images to see what type implants would look good on me. There are operation dates available in Nov but doc thinks I should wait longer which is probably wise.As you can see I'm terribly torn and feeling a bit sad as I was hoping to get this all sorted out before summer so people don't know. Only I can decide. Any girls out there who upgraded their implants bigger and regret it. ..lose nipple sensation. .horror stories. Tell me...I want to hear it all. Hugs Shelly xoxo

6 months now..still sad about size.

Hi girls . Hope you're all doing well. Its been a while since I posted so I thought a few pics for updates will be good. I have seen my doc again and he doesn't think a revision is worth the risks...problem is that I'm still sad. He doesnt think that there is anything wrong with my right implant that seems to be heading further out to the side...and he said sutures won't help when so many docs on here say they do. He says my boob was off centre to start with even though he said nothing about that in both meetings even after my husband and I asked him if he saw any problems that would stop my boobs from being close together!! Now when I tried the 3d vectra machine it made my nipples look uneven as I go bigger and he says he can't get them any closer. I believe that the right breast implant had the pocket over dissected and as it falls out the the side it drags the nipple out . Therefore making vectra look worse than it should. Anyway.. that is my winge for now and I have posted some pics for forum docs to comment on. I won't be making any rash decisions...I'm going to get some other opinions. ..who knows...I might fly to dr.pousti in the states one day lol!!! Hugs Shelly xoxo

its the party time of year

Well girls..hope you're all gearing up for Christmas. Its summer down under so its time to get the girls out and try to enjoy them. Found a great push up bikini that does wonders. Thought I would update some of my pics...boobs still changing. Maybe a bit more fluffing? I had fun on my work boat party and shamelessly got the girls out...I would never have had the confidence before. Hugs to everyone and all the support you give shelly xoxo

mod plus in bandeau

Hi kiwi 6...took this for you to try to help you with your decision. .hugs Shelly xoxo

9 months now...still have boobie greed damn.

Hello girls:)
it's been ages since I posted anything but I still checkin on everyone and to all the newbies here that are doing so well. It's summer here so I have been enjoying my boobs. Some days I feel satisfied with them and other days I still so wish they were bigger. I'm not going to do anything about it this year just to see how I feel. I love having boobs so much and the 450cc mod plus suits my frame well. I can dress them up with pushups and then I can also wear clothes that they look tiny in...I tend to wear slightly padded bras or pushups to get the full boob look I so wanted..but hey..thats just me. I always look for bras that push them together as they look bigger then too. They have still changed since the last post..perhaps filled out a bit more at the bottom of my boob which makes them appear fuller. They look like a c but I wear a 10e or 10f or some 12dd....it all depends on bras. A girlfriend just got sent some Victorias Secret stuff from states so I'm going to be interested to see where I am in relation to their sizing. Here are some fun pics I've taken recently with the girls in pushups shamelessly displayed...gotta love boobies!! Love to all hugs shelly xoxo

new bikini

Just got a great bikini on sale for 10 dollars per piece. ..love a bargain :)

nearly 1 year old boobies.

I was reading in bed and took a few realistic pics of my boobs. Not in bras that push them together and make them look bigger...also not up close to show a better profile. This is why I still wish they were bigger. They just seem wide and flat to me. Don't know where the 450cc mod plus went? Mostly I have good days but just having a bad one today. I always feel better in bras but would love more oomph naked.

another profile pic

Another profile pic.

victorias secret sizing.

It's hard to know sizes compared with USA bra brands...but I did get to try on a girlfriends bra that was 34d for comparison. The band was too loose so I must be a 32 and my boobs were falling right out of the D cup. So guessing my size must be around the 32ddd mark for size comparison.

pics of my loose maternity bra

I just wanted to show a few of you the loose and floppy maternity bra that I wanted to fill out. ..it just hangs off me ..and also my original string bikini I was trying on during sizes. My doc assured me that my boobs would be close together. ..they feel a mile apart and the only way I get cleavage is with an underwire and pushups. Hope you can see why I feel bummed out with 450cc mod plus!!

happy 12 months boobaversarry!!

Well what a ride its been...highs and lows.. but love having boobies and would do it again in a heartbeat. Love love having boobs just wish I could get over my boobie greed. ...will have to do something about it one day lol! In the mean time I have to have fun with these. So here are some pics of those 1 year old boobies. . Cheers to everyone who has been a friend and supported me.. hugs Shelly xoxo

new bra for boobies

I love buying new lingerie. Its a serious habit of mine and I do promise to post some more pics of gorgeous stuff I own. This is a new one just bought yesterday. Padded push up.. but definitely gives me the vaavoomba lol!! Boobs look bigger in bras thank goodness :) having fun xoxo

I will try posting this again lol!!

Getting some information

Hi girls...After a year of procrastination I have finally booked an appointment to see another doc. I see him tomorrow. He was the first doc I saw and he has lots of photos of me pre ba which is very useful. At this stage I'm just after some information about his thoughts on me going a bit bigger. Also his opinion on the placement of my implants. I'm looking forward to hearing what he says. He has already said that if I wanted a revision he would quote at 6000 instead of the " bargain price" of 7000 that my own surgeon offered me. Still think that its cheaper to come to the states lol!!!

A very positive consultation

Procrastination for a year finally forced me to see a new doctor Dr. DOYLE. . I saw him before my BA and he has records of my pre ba pictures which was very useful for him and me. I discussed my options of going bigger , closing my gap more and looking at the position of my right implant. From day of surgery I complained it was off centre ( even when my surgeon drew on me). He never said anything preop about me being uneven and either did dr doyle. Well he was able to review my pics and see me and said that my implant is definitely badly positioned which was kind of a relief for me. Because I'm thin its very easy to see the middle line of my sternum. He said that the pocket was overdisected and is causing my lateral displacement. He said he would have used a larger implant on me as he measured my bw at 13.9 and my mentor 450cc are only 13.5 wide. He said I can easily take a bigger implant and if I go up to a base of at least 14 or 14.5 he can give me the cleavage I've wished for. He said I would need my right pocket opened up in the mid line and sutured at the sides to stop my implants from falling out to the sides. He suggested 2 implants by allergan. .inspira I think. Base 14 and 615cc and 6.5cm projection or base 14.5 700cc and 6.6cm projection ..both slightly firmer implants to stop rippling and textured. It was very informative and has given me some answers and things to think about. My only wish is that he could do sutures like Dr . Revis who actually does an internal bra. Perhaps if I do decide to fork out the money to get these dream boobs of mine then I should get them done to last and not drop after a few years. It might be worth the travel. I have a great friend in new york thats 40min flight to miami. . Or I can fly direct to dr . Pousti in La...ahhh its kind of scarey but exciting to think I have some more information . Thoughts girls??? Hugs Shelly xoxo

is this a sign girls or what?

Tonight I was writing to Tinka here on realself and telling her I was thinking about getting a revision done in usa...namely in San Diego with dr . Pousti. About 15 mins after writing the post and asking if any real self girls feel like a trip to San Diego then this boy walks up to me wearing a San Diego shirt!!! I don't think I can get more of a sign than that!!! Anyone live near San Diego lol!!!

still confused

Hi lovely ladies
I'm still confused and haven't made any rash decisions. I saw another doctor who does good boobs here on the coast. He's only a cosmetic surgeon though. He's seen as a bit of a "boob god" here and charges like a wounded bull too. ( hope you usa girls can understand my aussi jokes!) Anyway...he tried his hardest to sell me on the furry seintra impants available here in Australia. They stick in.place very quickly eg in 48hrs due to a furry coating hence alot of surgeons are too scared to use them because you need a very acurate skill level to place them. Anyway...his 14000 quote is way too much for my budget unfortunately. He said my results are far from optimal and that my doc over dissected my pocket so the implants are heading sideways. He said he should have released more of my strong pec muscles to bring my implants in closer and that my muscles will continue to push them out. Gggrr. He says that a bigger implant would have filled out my tissue more and avoided the awful snoopy boob I had to cry over. Says the doc should have known that when I told him I had been an athlete that uses my pec muscle. And that my implants shouldn't fall out to the side so much....that my cleavage is off centre and that No...the implants are not in anytime ever going to move into the centre more by wearing a bra...my docs lame suggestion would have been his lame attempt to stop them from moving further into my armpits...mmm great. So as you can imagine I'm feeling a bit down at the moment. I see my original doc on the 19th so I'm armed and dangerous with all this info. His idea of satisfactory result is not mine especially when I paid nearly 11000. His warning of if I go bigger you have a 1 in 5 chance of losing nipple sensation was met with the comment..."I would run." I will be taking my husband with me this time as its usually just me... generally balling my eyes out and my doctor trying to calm me down. This time he's gonna hear it all. It has the potential to go really badly. My husband asked me "what do you want out of this? ". To be really honest I'm not quite sure. One part of me wants him to say he'll fix me for little cost ( not his 7000 quote ) another part of me is really scared to let him touch me again. What if he cuts the nerves on my nipples if he's angry with me? Its scary and ive got tears in my eyes as I write this. I'm not going to do anything until my gut tells me its right. So there I am today...biggest hugs to you all. Just want to be happy...I'm tired of trying to fight it. Xoxo

spoke to a friend

Hi girls...I had a friend come over then other night and she has offered to come to the doc appointment with me on the 19th. She doesn't take shit from anyone and will be better than my hubby when it comes to sticking up for me. He's not going to make me cry this time...she's going to make him give me answers. I just took some pics in a 12d bra today I was trying on...its still gaping on me.

good news from dr.revis

Hi ladies :) just to keep you up to date with my research I have also been in contact with Dr.Revis. He was very prompt to return my emails and has also confirmed that I have lateral displacement. He says he can fix me and close in my gap, give me internal bra on both sides and upgrade me to 650cc high profile. ..basically he can do his best to give me my wish boobs!!! He can even use my crease incision. I'm going to have to do a hell of alot more sales in my job but I'm using it as an incentive. Its a big deal to travel half way around the world but I know he's great at revision work and probably well worth the trip. I've still got other docs consults but I'm going to use him as a benchmark for what I want. If none of the docs here can cut it then I'm booking my flights! Are there any other girls close to Miami? Cheers shelly xoxo

pics for perky pgh :)

Some boob pics shows right breast off my centre line and falling out when laying down.

what 700cc looks like on me

Hi girls.
So I survived the docs appointment without crying this time. I ended taking the husband with me as my friend couldn't come. We basically outlined the fact that I got neither of the things we got the ba for.
1. To fill up the bra I showed him ( which is still loose on me )
2. Have a close cleavage. ( not close and off centre.
We tried to remain diplomatic but doc knows that this is now a problem that I can't live with and I will get a revision to improve my situation.
I think my doc was very good this time and its the first time that we have had any honest answers from him.
He says that its my anatomy. . Mmm still not convinced and we showed him all the other docs reports. He says that he dissected to the full extent of my muscle and that I risk heaps rippling if I go closer. Said I'll have sagging stretched skin etc but going bigger. ..all the usual. Said that he can't guarantee that he can get my boobs any closer and that my ribs angle that make my boobs go out to side...wow all stuff he never told us before...when we first asked he said no problems me achieving a close cleavage.
Basically he told me that if I want to go bigger there are loads of downsides a d the only thing that he can guarantee me is bigger boobs. He said if I'm willing to forgo all the risks then it will be like him "crossing an ice bridge to get to Mt everest" I may end up happy but there are heaps of stuff that can go horribly wrong. ..ouch. I'm very confused right now and not entirely confident that he can give me what I want...or can anyone for that matter. Am I being unrealistic in my expectations for my anatomy??
In anycase. . If I did decide to go ahead against all odds we did the vectra for the look of 615cc and 700cc both high profile. Its not entirely accurate but gives me an idea of the look. To be honest the look of 615cc didn't have such a dramatic change from 450cc. ..guess its still better but only 165cc difference. The 700cc looked much better...250cc change. He said he couldn't guarantee that he could fit the 700cc in me but he could try and fit during surgery but I would have to be prepared for the 615cc if it didn't work. ..this is if he can't dissect more of my cleavage safely. The pics certainly don't look like Dr Revis boobs. I'm very torn. If I have so many risks then why not just add an international flight in as well lol!
Its alot to think about. ..any comments here will be greatly appreciated hugs shelly xoxo

pic of my original cleavage.

My surgeon says that my cleavage was off center and thats why my right implant is heading out to the side. Look at my original cleavage pic...always looked super even to me!!!!

Hey there, in some of your after pics your comments said nothing special and I just want to say that they look amazing!!! I have so little breast tissue my chest is actually a bit concave now after my kids. Your implants look sooo natural and still are large which to me is all the oomph you need. they look great and I hope mine turn out half as good as yours. :)

Thank you so much for the lovely message. All you ladies are amazing. I have to be thankful that my boobs are better than before. I just want to look down and see an even cleavage and a bit more fullness. I guess thats why I feel guilty for wanting more when I read your comments. ...I've tried so hard to be at " peace" with them lol! At least until I change them over I will feel good for the approaching warm weather hugs shelly xoxo. . Have you decided when you are having your BA?

Hello :) I have decided to have a revision. ..I just have to save like crazy now as its coming into busy season at my work. I have 2 options at the moment. ..do here with another surgeon ( dr doyle and has staff have been amazing) or come to the States to Revis! ..( whom I know can and will give me what I want!! @@ my biggest hurdle at the moment is that I've just found out that my fathers prostate cancer has spread so I'm not going to book any trips until I know what is happening for him. It will all work out in the end...and I've got boobs in the mean time xoxo

Awww so sorry your not getting the results your doctor can provide you. My doctor actually specializes in doing large implants. If you want you can come check out my review on my BA. Yes there are complications to having large implants but if the doctor is skilled at performing large implant breast augmentations then alot of those risk are eliminated. I have 560cc high profile implants overfilled to 1K but they do not feel nor look like they're that big. I hope you can find a doctor that can fulfill your BA needs to your liking instead of just telling you what you want to hear. Your chest anatomy i feel he should have done a better job examining your chest and told you that the results your looking for is not realistic instead of having you undergo the BA just to tell you your BA desires are unreachable. Good luck hunny.

I just saw your profile and you look amazing! I think us taller girls can handle the bigger implants. My surgeon isn't interested in fixing his mistake. ..he got his money. Every doc I've seen has said I wasn't uneven and I should have got a better result. I have zero tolerance for lazy sloppy doctors now...I want one who is trying to make me happy. I'm totally realistic in my expectations. ..and its sad when a doc has to back peddle to make excuses for his average surgery. Sadder when there are a few others on this site who have had the same experience from him.

Hang in there sweetie!!! If it is any consolation, I think that you look great! But i know how all too well how you feel. It is so sad that some girls come out of surgery feeling better about themselves and others feel worse. I won't leave the house without a bra either cause I feel that I look flat. I went through a long phase where I was embarrassed that I had up pay to get what other girls have naturally. I hope that you get your dream boobs. Don't feel bad cause you are not alone in feeling this way. :::hugs:::

Thanks beautiful :). Its a weird feeling because of the feelings of guilt for wanting things better. I'm a perfectionist and I find it very hard when I get told to just "make do" or I should be grateful that my boobs are better than they were before. Well.. I paid over 11k so I would at least expect to have a good result without off centre implant. When you see a board certified doc you don't expect to be lied to or deceived.. I can't stand that!!! My general practitioner is horrified at his lies. I feel way guilty for spending more money when I could go on an amazing holiday with my family. ...you know the deal....just guilt all round. But yes....one day I will get this sorted xoxo

You should not feel guilty for being unhappy. If your PS would have done a better job of guiding you to select the right size, this wouldn't have happened. I only met my PS two times for less than 10 min before surgery. Most of my consults were with different nurses. I had so many questions but felt rushed to choose a size. Trying on sizers is not very accurate and tells nothing about how your body will receive the implants. Height, build, skin elastistcy and other factors play a role. If getting a revision will help you to love your body, you deserve it. I'm definitely set on doing one when I have enough money saved up bc I didn't get what I asked for. Good luck on whatever you decide to do. XoXo

Hey love! I just read ur update on your appointment with ur Dr, it does NOT sound really good to be honest, and in my opinion he's been very negative towards your situation and what you want to achieve...I get it, you might not be able to have the gap fully closed due to your anatomy, but Im sure another Dr will be much more positive and will be able to guarantee you results. My advice is go to another Dr who can make you feel better and confident, I wouldn't have felt great either if I'd had such a conversation with my Dr - all confidence gone. Plus, he could've told you all that the very first time. Anyway, let me know how you go and if you are really thinking of going to the US! xoxoxo

I think your doctor is full of shit, tbh.

Mmm think you're right. To be fair.. he did try to tell me the negs of revision as these things can and do happen. ..but I really think that he was doing the dodge at responsibility for the poor implant position. ..as if he does admit mistake then he's obligated to fix it isn't he... mmmm

If he was really good you'd be happy

There are quite a few other girls on realself who have had the same thing with him too. Wish I'd known.

Hey Shellysmall, I did more research on PS closer too me and found one, Maybee if you search closer to where you live, possibly a days drive away etc.. You may find a capable surgeon closer. I was initially considering out of state but follow ups are difficult and then trying to fly an additional person over with me, flight cost and time off of work is more, , Can't hurt to look closer to where you live. Just a thought. HUGS !!

All that bs about your cleavage is just not true. I think you could def. have close cleavage! Good luck with your revision! :-)
