I just wanted to share my experience briefly. I am 44 and have wanted to have a BA for the last 5 to 10 years. I am 5'9" and 125 lbs. I have two children ages 13 and 19. I did breast feed. Before kids I had a full 36C and never really appreciated it. Then my chest went the way of most women post kids and aging. I ended up asymmetric with a B and a small C cup. Bras never fit right. I work out all the time and except for my breasts I've been doing a decent job of staying in shape. So after going back and forth, I decided to bite the bullet. My husband has been very supportive. I found this website and it has been a Godsend. All of the women on here have been so open and honest and generous with their experiences and advice. I don't think I could have made it through these past two weeks without all of you. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I feel like I know many of you.
I am 4th day post op and am having zero regrets. My PS put in Natrelle silicone implants. On the left I have a 339cc midrange profile(it was my bigger boob before) and on the right I have a 400cc high profile. When I first went to the PS I told him I wanted to be as small as possible. that I wanted like 270 ccs. All I can say it that it really pays to trust your surgeon. He or she knows what they are doing. They understand your build, weight, height, etc. I was soooo worried I would be too big. Thank heavens I went with his advice. I wouldn't want any smaller. My recovery has been uneventful. I started walking the next day. Post op days 2 and 3 I walked 5 miles. And yesterday I toned and did curls with 15 lbs in each hand. I'm telling you this because I know there are a lot of women out there who work out too and are concerned about when you will be able to get back to it after surgery. I can't wait to start running again. I usually run 5 miles every day, so that is something I am missing. I go to my post op tomorrow and will know more then. At the VERY latest I will back to everything except pushups at 4 weeks. It'll be here before I know it. Sleep the first two nights was the most difficult, esp night 2. But now its fine. I am trying to stay raised, but I slip. And I am a stomach/side sleeper! The trade off is awesome and it won't last forever. Ill be tossing from side to side again before I know it. Today I took out all my VS bras and NONE will fit again. I do not own a real bra for the first time in my life. Only sports types. But my lingerie and swimsuits look so pretty!!!!! I was practically laughing when I tried on my pretty nighties. I can't believe its real. Should've done it sooner. My husband never made me feel like I needed this BA. He loves me so much, I'm so spoiled. Its a second marriage for the both of us. We have been together about 4 1/2 years and will be married for 2 years in June. This is just icing on the cake!!!!
Oh, and I am a pretty modest person so I was chicken with the photos. So I took befores and afters in a swimsuit top. For those thinking 339/400 high profiles are big, look at my pics and decide for yourself. Again, I'm 5'9 and 125 lbs. I definitely don't feel they are too big. I know they sill have to drop. I'm hoping not too much!!!
Thanks you everyone for sharing your stories!!!! It was like someone was holding my hand through all of this! ;)
Hello everyone! I have been off the grid. My 19...
