I got my BA last year and this year I had to go back for a revision surgery because one of the pockets opened up. I don't know what the cause of this is but I had to get this taken cared of right away. Aside from the revision surgery, what I'm having a hard time is dealing with the size I chose. I wanted something that was proportionate to my body. My doctor recommended 325cc but I got scared and at the last minute changed it to 300cc. Now the more I work out, I feel like my breasts are getting smaller. I guess I'm keep losing the breast tissue which I didn't have much to begin with or now that the breasts have settled and all the swollen is gone, I guess they look different to me than before. I don't know if this is just in my head and I'm just being silly. I went from a 32A to a 32DD. I know this seems a lot but I don't really see my new girls to be that big! Has anybody else gone through this?

It's been a week since my revision surgery. I'm feeling better and so far I'm happy with the results. Last week when I started posting my story and pictures here, I was a bit down about my size but I'm coming to terms with myself and I'm starting to like what I see. I've found some really cute shirts and bathing suits that make the girls look really nice! I've also spent a good amount if time reviewing other profiles and its nice to relate to some if these stories and receive positive feedback. From the moment I decided to get implants, I didnt realize this ride was going to be a physical change and emotional. I'm still glad I went through it. Now I can't wait to start working out again. I'm looking for a good sports bra ... Anybody have any recommendations?

I'm looking for a good sports bra or wireless bra...

I'm looking for a good sports bra or wireless bra to sleep at night with, does anybody have any recommendations. I'm looking for something comfortable and with good support.

2nd Revision

I went to see my PS yesterday and my right breast is bottoming out AGAIN! I was bummed but then I started talking about going bigger. The nurse gave me some sizers. I don't want to go a whole lot bigger but big enough to wear ANY bra and look like the girls are still there. I've been buying Demi bras only because they give me that extra volume I like. Anyhow I'm looking at 375 or 425ccs. My fear is that since I'm bottoming out again, will I continue to have this issue with a bigger implant?

2nd revision

Getting my second revision soon!

I've decided to look at other surgeons and finally decided to go with somebody else who actually does the Strattice procedure. I felt so comfortable talking to this other surgeon and now I wished I would of met him a long time ago. Not only will I get the Strattic done, I'll also go a little bigger and with another type of implant. I'm considering going with a moderate plus vs HP and go up to 375ccs. Wish me luck ladies! I really don't want to go through this again.

Has anybody gotten the Strattice done?

Need some words of encouragement and your thoughts on the Strattice technique. Thanks in advance!

Three More Days Until My Revision Surgery!

I'm excited, nervous....all the above.
I got my house cleaned yesterday so I won't feel bad that the house turns upside down while I'm in bed. I hope the recovery is easy. On my first surgery, I didn't have to take narcotics- just 800mg of Ibuprofen. Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to just stick with Motrin. What I'm mostly worried about (sounds kinda bad) is the swelling on the abdominal area. The one that makes you look like you've just gone through labor only there's no baby. Yup....that one!
I haven't told my friends of this revision surgery and I have an event on July 27 that I'm hoping to attend. I'm hoping they wont notice otherwise I'll have to cancel. I'm reading about taking vitamin K which apparently helps with swelling after surgery and is found in pineapples, leafy greens, apples, red onions to name a few so tomorrow I'm making a necessary trip to the grocery store. Does anybody have any other suggestions about a quick post surgery recovery without over doing it? Ok, ladies....I'll try to write before Monday (btw-it's at 8:30am) but if my nerves take over and I forget....wish me luck please! I want all of this behind me for sure. Good nite.

It's done!

I had my second revision: strattice plus new implants this morning.
Everybody was so nice and I didn't feel like they were trying to get in and out of the door as quickly as possible.
One thing I was dreading was the andominal swelling but I don't I have that much. Yay!
Pain wise, none since I'm taking medications. Now as far as pressure and soreness, I feel like I've done 500 push ups! Lol
I was told to not use my arms when getting up just my core and legs. This is a bit difficult but doable.
I'm in bed now trying to get some rest. The healing process has begun...

So far so good....

I'm on my 4th after my surgery and I'm feeling better than expected. I was able to raise my arms to wash my hair by myself today. I do get tired more often and believe me I'm listening to my body more this time. I'm not stressing out about the mess around my house and if I'm tired, I just take a nap.

One Week AND one Day!

My birthday was yesterday so I was a bit busy to update my profile. I can't believe its been over a week since my surgery. Time does fly by. These are my pictures right now...

1 Month post op and LOVING IT!

I can't believe it's been already a month since my revision. Just to remind everybody this was my third surgery in less than a year. No bueno. I had the strattice put in on my right breast and got bigger implants with another surgeon. So glad I did this and all I wish I would of done is found him a long time ago. The implants I got this time not only were they bigger but instead of HP I chose moderate plus and man... They are sooooo soft! Some of my friends (close friends) can't believe how soft they are. Even my husband noticed... Score! ;)
So, I know there aren't many reviews about the strattice for bottoming out but if anybody out there is considering this procedure, it's 100% worth it. The other difference now is that I have a cleavage where as with the HP implants, I didn't. Never thought my boobs would look like that without a push up bra.

Hi Sissy48! Sorry I'm getting back you this late. I've been super busy with work and preparing for the kiddos to go back to school. Anyhow, I went to see my doctor yesterday and he's happy with the results which I'm too. I was given the green light to start wearing bras and slowly getting back to exercising but I'm going to continue taking it slow for a couple more weeks. I want to make sure I heal a little bit more. Just trying to be very cautious. Anyhow, how are things with you?

You look great Susie. Are you able to lift your arms now? I'm trying to be careful too. Did you have to leave a binder and dressing on for 72 hours after surgery?
  • Reply
Thank you newmeaug13! I'm now able to lift my arms. I didn't have to wear a binder at all. I just have to make sure my sport bras are VERY supportive. So far so good! ;)

Does anybody know how I can update the PS portion of my profile? The only option I have is to remove/add the star ratings but I want to completely change the name of the doctor since I ended up going with another PS this time around. Suggestions?
  • Reply
U should be able to go to your profile and click edit .
  • Reply
I should right? But when I do this I can only edit the star rating vs the actual PS. Ugh!

Send a message to the manager and she can help you .

They look better in every way to me. Congrats. Do they feel any more secure to you in terms of the bottoming out problem?
  • Reply
I can't wait to see the doctor tomorrow but I'm not going to lie I'm trying my hardest to keep my right side from doing anything. I'm not lifting anything and I'm trying to do more things with my left hand instead. Im almost thinking svout wearing a sling on my right arm! lol!! I hope there's a way my doctor can tell everything is still secure. I'm more sore on my right hand side for sure but it's barable.

True2type- I don't think I answered your question but so far yes, my right breast does feel more secure.
