I haven't had my surgery yet but I have been researching and wanting it for years and I am FINALLY a little over a month away. I have always been a little bottom heavy, having big thighs and a big bum but my chest has ALWAYS been on the flat side. Even during pregnancy there was no growth and I didn't even get any milk. So I have decided to go forth and have the surgery.
I met with a few plastic surgeons and actually found one who I absolutely love! His name is Dr. Eric Feldman in Sugar Land, Texas and he was AMAZING! I was SO NERVOUS about it because I have done TONS of research and have learned SO MANY things that could go wrong. He answered ALL of my questions and put my mind at ease. His goal is to make me happy and that is what I wanted to hear. Alot of doctors out there just see dollar signs, but not him. He assured me that if something went wrong and I didn't like the outcome he would fix it at no cost. I am positive nothing will go wrong though because he seems SO amazing.
So far we have decided on high profile natrelle silicone implants. 800cc under the muscle via inframammary incision. Still trying to decided if that is too big. I tried them on and they looked GREAT and I also have to keep in mind they will be a big smaller once they are actually inside me.
I am 5'6" and I weigh 170lbs. I am aiming for a DD and though the 800 sounds big, I look VERY proportionate with them on. Also had a friend (who went in saying I should only go to a C maybe a small D) agree on the size, along with the nurses and doctor. I guess its just my nerves getting second thoughts. I can't wait to see them again at my pre op. We are still deciding on an exact surgery date but shooting for April 27th depending on if I can get off work that day or not. I really hope I can because if I can't then it will be another week or two.

Well surgery is scheduled for May the 4th and I am SO EXCITED. I went to my pre op last Thursday and Dr. Feldman (Evan not Eric, sorry for the confusion) said that the 800cc is probably not going to fit the way he would like it to. We decided on 600cc or 650cc...he is going to order both and see which one looks best. These next few days seem to be DRAGGING...especially since I will be flying solo all next week AND next Friday was my ORIGINAL surgery date. I absolutely LOVE Dr. Feldman. He is great and so thorough and explains EVERYTHING.
Well I had my surgery on Friday with Dr. Evan...
Well I had my surgery on Friday with Dr. Evan Feldman and I am SO happy with my results. I haven't had much pain, not NEARLY as bad as I thought it was going to be. He is very gentle when lifting the muscle to put the implants in. I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends and family. He is great and so is his staff. We ended up going with Natrelle style 20 (high profile smooth round) 600cc under the muscle, which was the largest he could fit in. He actually ordered everything from 500-650cc in different profiles according to my BWD of 14. I thought this was really nice of him to do as well, as opposed to just getting one and saying you get what you get. I went to my post op today and they already look pretty great. They still have some dropping to do but I thought they were going to look horrible because of some of the pics I have seen online...they are very high but I just know they are going to be PERFECT. They aren't nearly as big as I thought they would be, but I know they will get a bit bigger once my muscle loosens up and they drop into the pocket. I FINALLY got to take a shower and boy do I feel like a million bucks! I can't WAIT to go back to work tomorrow....lol I know that sounds silly but I have been obsessing about my boobies with the girls from work for months now and I know they are just as anxious as I was. I was getting texts and and calls all weekend! I would definitely recommend getting a BA to anyone who feels insecure about their breasts or anyone who wants larger breasts. DO IT FOR YOURSELF though. NOT for anyone else. and do TONS of research and make sure you have the right doc for you! Go to more than one consult too because you may like the first doc but you might LOVE the 3rd or 4th. I have a few friends who used a certain doc and when I consulted with him I felt as though he didn't take me seriously and I felt rushed. He didn't even let me try on sizers to see what size I was aiming for! Go to a doc who makes you happy and who's goal is to make you happy. Alot of docs are just going after the money. You want one who has your happiness and health in mind. Best of luck to you all!!
