My Breast Implants Look Natural and Feel Great - I LOVE THEM

I love my new breast implants - very pretty and only two weeks out - zero pain or bruising.  I had mine inserted through an incision around the areola and under the muscle - I went from a 32B to a 32DDDD with 450 cc Moderate Plus.  I had them done in La Jolla - the doctor was fabulous.  I also had a short scar facelift at the same time - I am 45 yrs old and look 35!!!!

I am now 4 weeks out and the implants are terrific - they fit my body structure and look surprisingly natural.  I have been shopping at Nordstrom after getting a proper fitting - they carry bras especially made for augmented breast. 

I recommend to anyone considering the procedure not to go too small - try on slightly larger implants than you think you will want or you may be disappoinnted afterward.  A 23 yr old friend of mine got the 450 cc high profile implants - she has a slightly wider build (back  & waist) and now wishes she got the 500 cc.  My doc was suggesting 325 cc high profile for me and I chose 450 cc moderate plus instead.  The moderate plus are rounder implants that don't stick out as far .  .  . I think they look more natural and then you can go a little bigger!

Here is an update - I love these breasts - they are very comfortable - no pain or problems so far.  Now I am 5 weeks out. 

I highly recommend trying on different implant sizes inside a special bra and under your own clothes before choosing what size you think you want.  I was sure the 450 cc moderate plus was going to look like a porn star but in the end they look really nice and proportional to my figure.  I suggest going bigger than you think because you will wish you did later. The doctor should give you a special bra for this purpose.  I found trying on two different sizes at the same time for comparison sake worked super well - I then put on a tight fitting shirt so I could see what it was going to look like.  

I went under the muscle for more support - right away my implants were soft and flexible.

6 yrs later and I still LOVE them.

No need to redo/repair or change a thing - they still look great today.

6 yr photo of implants

450 cc implants under the muscle. They look and feel great and I've had no issues with them. I will not redo/replace/repair anything at this point. I had considered 550's but I look at them and think, I'm happy so why mess it up.

Because I am 30" around the ribcage, I ended up a 30F. This makes it tough to find well-fitting bras - it's something to think about.

6 yrs After Installation

450 cc moderate plus silicone under the muscle.

Renovation time!

Today I opted for some renovations. I loved my augmentation but my breasts were started to drop due to gravity. I changed for 550cc textured Mentor mod +. I had the lower pocket tightened and the side pockets tightened giving just a pinch of lift. The new implants were installed more symmetrically and a little bit higher up.

Photos coming soon.

2nd Renovation yesterday - removed Textured and replaced with Smooth

So the Textured did not pan out and I had a lot of issues with scar tissue, contracture, and pain. I could feel the implant which I did not like and I had loved the first set b/c they looked totally natural. So, the new ones already feel better although it's not been 24 hours yet . . . I will post photos next week when the stitches and bandaging is removed.

Some photos after surgery yesterday replacing Textured implants with Smooth

I had an implant revision to revise the revision . . . Textured implants did not work and caused me many issues so I put in the Smooth - love these and it has not been 24 hours yet. Also, I've had to have a 2nd Full TT and am 3 months out from that procedure.

Newest photos of last revision

My breasts are good again - I'm happy I did the upgrade even though I needed two revisions.
