I am 48 years old...5'6 118 lbs and after a lifetime of wearing padded bras to get the look I wanted I have finally took the steps to throw those bras away. I have had my consultation and yesterday my pre op everything is paid ...now to just wait it out and try not to freak out..LOL. I did try on sizers and liked the look of 350 cc..didn't look much different than what I looked wearing a VS push up.... but of course now I am second guessing my choice...I don't want to be too big but i on the other hand I don't want to wish I had gone bigger....

Sounds like you're ready to roll! Here is a link to help you prepare for your upcoming surgery and perhaps make your waiting time pass more quickly.  :)

What to set up and buy before your breast aug surgery

You seem rather small so the 350's seem just right. The only reason I can think of to go bigger is that menopause is around the corner and sometimes woman become a little more padded. Let us know what you decide!

Was your mom supportive? What ages are your children? Hopefully everyone can feel your excitement and "sort of" understand your journey.  :)

I am currently worried about size but for another reason. I'm worried about going to big and sagging later on. I'm getting a vertical lift with 400cc. I'm trying to not be over worried because I've been set on 400cc for years now, lol I've had three babies. That's why I had asked women who's post op what they wish they did. Big vs small.

You know, I've started to wonder the same thing. I'm not getting a lift but still know that age and gravity are no friend to big boobies:-) another thing I see a lot where I live is older women with implants....not a big deal however, it looks odd when their breasts are super perky and firm but the rest of the body doesn't match. Oy! So many things to think about.

We have the same surgery date!!! I went into my consult wanting somewhere around 375 mod plus. PS recommended high profile for my narrow chest and small BWD. I really liked the 425 hps:-) if there is one comment I hear over and over again, its women wishing they went bigger!
