I thought it was very clear that I wanted bigger boobs. They're only a little bigger, not worth the money spent, not worth what I went through to heal, not worth the strain put on my family and pay that I paid two nannies to assist with my children, not worth missing thanksgiving :( I'm heartbroken.
The Dr. really was patient with my as I saw him over a period of 2 years before I finally did it. I was naturally large! I'm a semi small frame 5'0, 130 lbs. I was a 34c prior, I'm a 34c (tight) now, but not big enough to move up. I had 5 children and wanted that nursing look. I told him I wanted to be my size that I was before kids which was large. There wasn't a need for a lift, thankfully. He wanted 5 pictures of my desired look, I gave him 20. He said to include photos of too big, and too small. (I've ended up smaller than the too small) He said I did a good job finding photos of very similar sizes and that I needed 450cc to accomplish.
When I got out of surgery, he said I put in 375. I was devastated but right out of surgery they actually looked PERFECT. The problem, they were swollen. Every day and week the size went down. Week one I wore my dream bra of 34dd...time went on, the size went down. I'm back to every original bras I had. Even more disappointing, I USED to have the shape I enjoyed. The implants stick out forward more, but I made it more than clear that I wanted volume (lots of it) off to the sides near my armpits as my natural ones did, not torpedos.
I stressed this point over 10 conversations. I have an appointment with the doctor on week 12 to discuss a revision (which I don't want to do) or removing them (which I don't want to do) I wish he just got it right the first time. In any manner it was NOT worth it. I don't know what advice to give because I feel that I was clear on what I expected. I even wrote on the photo chart "IF IN DOUBT, GO BIGGER."
