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!

Wow I knew I posted too fast. LOOK gals, in my...

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!

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!
