I will update this again. I've had my story erased twice by trying to post photos so bear with me! Short: I was 34B, had kids, nursed, had a life in my 30s. Husband #1 left with younger woman so had a moment of panic and had 225 cc saline "unders" in my early 40s. What a mistake. I gained a few lbs and became a 34DD. I found a PS to take them out under local as I think general anesthesia is hard on an older brain! I'm 2 days out and happy! I don't have "before" pictures as I didn't think of it. But I have to post after ones to thank all of you brave women for sharing!

I had only the local, and I was in no pain, and...

I had only the local, and I was in no pain, and even drove myself home. I did feel pressure and tugging. I think I knew I could remain calm as I delivered all my children (including twins) during the "natural is best" phase of childbirth, so I did not have an epidural. I figured I could do this, and I am a calm person. I was fine, and no pain. I got my pain prescription filled on the way home, and I took it before the local was completely worn off.


I think it hurts more now, in some ways, that it did the first 48 hours. Perhaps because I am doing too much, like ordinary loading/unloading the dishwasher, doing laundry etc. or else it is just the typical "3rd day after (any) surgery" that they say is the worst. If so, it is a breeze in comparison to getting them in!!


You guys are the BEST! TY for your words of encouragement. It is SO nice to be soft and squishy again. I am at 34B and wearing a tank top with my sports bra, and don't look like an old lady trying to show off her boobs. I look like a nice middle aged woman who takes care of herself!

Wow I knew I posted too fast. LOOK gals, in my 30s after nursing my kids(and being 36E) I had a breast lift. LIFT only and No implants! I was never the really "high and cleavage" kind, even when young, so yes I am SO happy that the implants, while they made me a little saggy, did not put me back to where I was after having/nursing kids, and before the lift. I could hold pencils under my 34B boobs then. How DUMB I was to have the implants!
I am happy with my results now, and if the "fluffing fairy" comes and puts a little on the top I would be so thrilled, If not, I am still happy. I can't thank you enough for your comments. I was a little afraid for my husband to see them as they were very full on the "top" before (that and under my armpits when I laid down!), but he sees them as better than before as they are so soft. I can't thank all enough! You are amazing women, and I feel like my "RealSelf" again. Thank you!

I didn't have a "before" but took a picture of my doctor' "before" photo. I also took a picture of my doctor's "after" at one week. It doesn't show as well from this shot, but I looked a lot bigger "before" in clothes. I wanted to update to thank all of you for lending me your courage ! So glad I did it. I will update in a month or so. At this time they look the same as at one week.
Oh, I wanted to share, also, that I went through 2 days of "did I do the right thing?" as I still look so flat with my sports bras on. While it felt very real and uncomfortable at the time, that went away pretty quickly. I am really happy and bought myself two fun colored bras that I can begin wearing soon!
