Going Back A Second Time Next Week - Irvine, CA

First breast augmentation was last June. I was an A cup. barly anything. I had 350cc , smooth, moderate profile, saline put in. No pain. stretched well, no complications.

A year later I am going back again to switch them out to silicone so they feel more real. Im also hoping to achieve a better look in terms of my breasts filling out and dropping more. I also want to remove what i feel is "too wide" of a gap.

I had great results the first time, for the most part, but the more time went on the more i felt they shrunk in size!

My main issue is trying to find the right size! I dont feel my breast are big right now. I

im 22, 5'8 and 135 pounds. Im thinking 450cc or 475cc. Also i heard that silicone shrinks more?


Name not provided

willing to re-do a second time

I've read plenty about booby greed and always thought it was silly but I dont know now. I am 5'4" 128 and got 400/450s round silicone. I am 6 weeks post op. They look great and feel soft and natural BUT a bit smaller than I hoped. I do however have majorly over sensitive nipples thought so my PS was probably right saying any larger (at this point) would've causes too much strech and led to possbile complications. I think I will be happier once my TT swelling goes down and I have that nice overall look. :)

Silicone doesn't "shrink" more than saline but it does form to the body better and look more natural.

If you look at the width/projection statistics of the implant you choose, you and your PS should be able to find something that will give you the look you desire.

From what I've seen saline implant shells tend to have more projection than silicone because they can be overfilled.

Also implanted breasts appear smaller than natural breasts because the width and/or projection is different. This can make an implanted breast that looks like a C cup actually fit into a DD cup.

Show your surgeon pics of women with your body type and height that have breasts that you like and he or she should be able to recommend a size that will work with your anatomy. Don't get hung up on CCs a 450 on a person with a narrow chest will look completely different than 450 on a wider chest or shorter woman.

Usually women of your stature can pull off larger implants really well. I hope you're happy with your results! Please keep us posted on how it goes.

It made me a C cup but they don't seem that big at all. I won't know what size ill have until after surgery which makes me a little uneasy

when you put the 350 cc in what cup size did that make you?

It made me a C but they seem small. I feel like they look bigger cause they sit high n didn't drop as much as I was expecting. But 450 might be still be too big . I really won't know what size ill be until after surgery which makes me a little uneasy
