I am a 38 yr old mom of 2 with aprox. 36 months total combined of breast feeding. I'm 5'2" & 140 lbs. Trying to get back to my old weight & really want to get my breast back the way they were.
I have seen 3 doctors so far & I have an idea of the one I am going to choose. But ever since I've been on this site I have seen so many wonderful results with really amazing doctors. I wish I could travel to do this. But my husband & I don't have any family here to help with the little ones. So I really have to stick with staying here. And I know we have great doctors here in Texas. The one I feel strongly about is really great so far & his staff is great as well.
I want a lift with implants with the least amount of scaring possible. I have seen so many great results here on this great site. And I have learn a whole lot. And even thought I have pretty much pick my doc. I'm still looking to visit at least 2 more to be 110% sure. Right now I am about 99% sure.
So much research & sooooo many years of wanting my breast back to the way they were...just can't wait. I am choosing to do it in August so that I didn"t get in the way of SUMMER FUN!!
So here are 3 before shots. And hopefully I have lost a few pounds & toned up more for the new boobies!
I'm loving being apart of this great community. My...

I would like my 34D (sometimes Double D, depending on the bra.) to be a 34C with nothing but perkiness!!!!! And not a whole lot of movement! They jiggle too much to go bra less right now. Before babies I could. Of course always in a very respectful way.
I would like to buy small tops that fit my body. Right now I have to wear medium to fit these boobies, so I look bigger than I am. Or it looks like I am trying to expose the boobies.
Anyway just thought I would share my thoughts on my flappy ladies! Just can't wait.
Woowhoo I have moved my date. Due to my moms...

I finally told my kiddos yesterday that I am have a it done. And are so sweet & smart. I tried not to give too much delail. My youngest said, " it's so your boobies won't hang low when you're old" !!!! LOL!!!!
I really just wanted them to know that I will be recovering in bed & taking it easy for a while. I am an at home mom, so most of their summer fun is with me. Now I have a new fun schedule for them. So that makes me feel better.
Sorry just nervous & going on and on! Anyway I will post all updates.
Wish me luck!

Yesterday went to my PS for the first post-op visit since surgery...hubby stayed in the car, I couldn't even get the front door to his office open!! It was soo heavy. Anyway, he said everything looks good so far. He also mentioned that he would love to do a donut lift in 3-6 months!! I think he wants my nipples on my shoulders!!! Omg! Well we will see in 3 to 6 months. He is a perfectiontist! That's awesome for his patients.
For now I really miss cuddling with my hubby & kids, big time! Date night is not the same. We're almost like two strangers trying to get close. Hehe
Boy I have to say my Mom is really taken good care of us....she is an excellent cook. So we are not going hungry around here!
It's nice to have my Mommy taken care of me again. Feel like a little girl again.
Gotta go, my little wants to try and cuddle. :-)
HAPPY 4th of July to everyone here on Realself. I...

Monday July 9. 2nd post-op. Doctor confirms the issue. Reaction to bactrim. Just stop taking them. Take Benadryl & rub anti-itch cream all over! Thank god thats all.
Doc says breast look great they are healing according to plan. What!! They look so scary to me!! Ugh! I mean thats great news of course! I just worry, they looks sooooooooo scary to me!!!!
2 weeks post-op. Yeah, I've been to busy having...

So, the boobies do look better, not square looking as before. But not a big enough change that you can tell in a pic. But enough to see the light @ the end of the tunnel. :-)
My husband paid CASH-in-FULL for my new boobies and I still don't want him to see them yet! He didn't think I needed this, but he loves me & wants me to be happy. He understands me, thank god!
So Dr.H said to run hot water on the tape to remove them. I can see that my areolas look great w/out taking the tape off. So it can only get better from here!
He (we) just can wait to go on vacation sun, swimming & lots of fun, so next weekend thats the plan!!! Yeah. The kids are counting down too. It has been raining soo much here in Katy, TX that it really has helped me not feel so guilty about not being able to just go in our backyard to swim w/my kiddos.
BRAS!! Omg, I'm having a hard time finding the perfect one. I have to hit VS this weekend. That should be fun, NOT!!! I am 34dd, but my boobs are so wide round (always have been) from pit to cleavage that I can fit 34DDD. But they are not full enough from chest wall to nipple to fill the 34 DDD, only the DD. So I think VS store is my only answer.
So far I do look thinner from the side & their not hanging and pulling on my neck....so far! I know they haven't dropped and fluffed yet.
Soo much cash spent on myself. I'm still not sure if it was 100% worth it...maybe 90% right now...
DR. HORNDESKI really IS so worth the money!!! NO REGRETS on going to him for this procedure!!!
2nd week post op yesterday. PS says everything...

- 30 Jul 2012
So update: nothing new, they still haven't dropped & fluffed yet. I'm just hanging in there. Still can't really shop for new bras yet! That part is really annoying!! I'm so tried of these bras I'm stuck wearing!! But I don't want to pay a lot of money for a bra that won't fit when they finally drop & fluff completely.
Another update: they look the same to me, scary still! No pics yet, not till there's a real difference.
I have my areola lift scheduled for Oct. can't wait!! Yeah me
So I forgot to mention that swimming & the...

As far as how boobies are looking, still not impressed! UGH! I do see them finally dropping....we'll see! Time will tell
I do have to say that there is a HUGE difference with the lack of hanging & pulling on my neck & shoulders!!! And I don't have to wear a wire sports bra & an extra sports bra for extra support! Only a sports bra.... So that is a blessing in it's self.
Well my ladies are 2 months & 1 day new now. I've...

I saw Dr.H on Monday for my 2month follow up. When I asked if they are going to drop anymore he just said he really likes the upper pole fullness I have. I guess I was thinking of it as a compliment b/c completely forgot to ask again for a proper answer. While I agree the upper pole fullness is nice I would like it if they didn't look soo "fake". Of course hey are fake but I wanted a more natural look. You can really see it when I wear tube tops or low cut tops. I can see all of the attention they get when I dress in cute summer clothes. Not what I was looking for.
So, I went bra less on a date with my hubby for the first time in yrs!! OMG he loved the dress & how nice I looked in it. So much so that He got us a hotel room after a really great night out o_O!!! Oh what a night, LOL. I have to admit it was an awesome feeling!
I felt so sexy...he made me feel so sexy, even my 6 yr old said "mama you look hot !!" WHAT, too cute!
Well I'm posting a side view pic b/c I forgot to last time. And afew others. Tell me if you agree with me about how high & fake they look in the black tube top.
Well all in all I'm happy with my surgery. I'm really happy with Dr.H and really happy I had his procedure done. I am looking forward to going bra less more often and all the benefits that come with his technic.
TaTa for now
3 months 2 days and I can say I'm still not as...
- 1 Oct 2012
Now I have this really ANNOYING feeling when I bend over or reach my arms out front. It feels like they are scratching against my muscle. Feels like sand paper, very awful feeling!! Dr.H could actullay feel it but couldn't explain it. At first it was only my left, now both are doing it. It's such a gross feeling. I'm hoping it goes away! Anyone know what I'm talking about & does it go away? Why is this just now starting to do this? It started about a week ago. So creepy. So on top of no feeling in the nipples, still having sharp pain in left boobie, and this annoying feeling when I move, I'm not thrilled with these fake feeling boobies of mine! Still waiting to love them!! Not so far :-(
My Doctor: Gary M. Horndeski, MD
