Goodbye Saggy Baggy A's! - Kansas City, KS

Several years ago I discussed with my husband the possiblity of having breast augmentation after children. Well, after breastfeeding two kiddos my day is about to arrive!

I began consulting with plastic surgeons in the spring. I decided from the start that I was going to schedule 3 consults with 3 plastic surgeons. The first was great (in fact that is who I've scheduled the surgery with). The second surgeon was arrogant, rushed the appointment, and actually dropped curse words. It freaked me out because his online presence leads you to believe he is an excellent surgeon. The third surgeon was okay, however, was rushed at the end of the consult due to a scheduling error. Right away the red flag came up. My gut (and my husband who attended the first 2 consults) said to go with the first surgeon.

So here I am, scheduled for my BA on November 4. Tomorrow I will be going for my pre-op appointment. At this point, I believe I will be getting 375cc, Allergen Silicone, under the muslce, inframmary incision. Of course I'm playing the "is it big enough" game with myself. I've included a before picture - so feel free to comment.

I am 5'5", 125lbs. My rib cage measures at 28.5" - currently wearing a 32A.

As a nursing mother, I would pump 500mL of breastmilk from each breast per session. I did a little research and it turns out 1mL = 1cc. In that case, I almost feel as though I should go larger. I LOVED my nursing breast size. Really it was a full C - maybe a D. That is part of my worry about not going big enough.

My surgeons nurse (who is great by the way) said I really shouldn't go beyond the 375cc as the implant will start to get into my arm area and become a nuisance.

Again - if anyone out there has input I'd love to hear it!

Day 2 post-op: I've been sleeping a lot! My chest is still tight and tender, but I am now able to move my arms more freely. My right pec is more sore than the left. I am still taking my pain meds and using frozen veggies on the tops and sides of my breasts (which I really do think is helping). I would say I'm doing really well at this point! I've been trying to get up and walk around a little more this evening and do a few arm lifts to loosen things up.


I ended up with 425cc, High Profile, cohesive silicone implants. I will post pics in a few days!

3 years later - still happy!

I am completely happy with Dr. Chhatre's work and his staff is terrific!! I will be recommending him to anyone of my family or friends considering breast augmentation.
