Boobies for Valentines Day - Las Cruces, NM

I've had 2 kids, one was breastfed for 6 months,...

I've had 2 kids, one was breastfed for 6 months, the other just 3 weeks. I don't have the worst boobs on the planet but once upon a time I had fantastic ones. My kids changed that. I am hoping to go bigger than my previous 34 C/D now a deflated b. I am 5'9 135 and hoping to add 550 to 600 ccs.

I met with 2 Drs, Dr Reynolds in El Paso, TX and Dr Martin in Las Cruces. I decided to go with Dr Martin because I knew 2 women who had BA's with him and were very satisfied with their result.

The only complaint I've heard about him is that women sometimes wish they went bigger than he suggested.


Are you going with silicone or saline? I am 6ft 200lbs and going with 490-505 on Rt and and 390-420 on Lt. (I guess saline comes in ranges.. I was considering going bigger though....

Only 19 days till my surgery and I really cant decide on a size. I keep going back and forth between 550, 600, and 650. My pre op is on feb 11 and I am going to bring a plethora of pics to show Dr Martin. I'm thinking themagic number this week will be 600.


My surgery is on the 12th! (: Exciteddddd! Good luck with yours!

You have a very nice figure and you're pretty tall so I'm sure you could carry that size well. Good luck with your decision and keep us updated.

Amazonian, I am going with silicone because I my existing breast tissue will not cover a saline implant.

Met with Dr Martin for my Pre-op today and when he asked what size I settled on, I said 650..... he was like "hmmmm, I def feel that would be outside of my comfort zone on your figure." I definitely don't want any complications and I trust an extent. I dont want to go too small, so 600 was our final number and I'm excited! Only 3 more days!!


Good Luck! I'll be going through it all at the same time as you! Keep us posted how everything goes!

I had my surgery on vday and all has gone well, I have been in quite a bit of pain, but I suffer from fibromyalgia, which I think makes my healing a lot more difficult than most. I love my size, and much of the swelling has gone down and I had zero bruising....I'm not sure if that was due to Dr Martin's work or thanks to the bromelain and arnica montana I had been taking prior to surgery. Either way I am pretty happy so far I just wanted to do a quick update and will go into more detail later. So far, so good though :)


I went with 600cc HP in both breasts
I dont think it's huge at all, it looks slightly above proportionate if you know what I mean. I am measuring a 30 f, but, I will probably be even larger as my chest muscles and skin relax and the implants fall into their correct position. Right now I am still very high up.

I am feeling almost 100% normal now. My breasts...

I am feeling almost 100% normal now. My breasts look and feel pretty awesome, however I have some numbness on the sides and slight numbness in the nipples. I went with an inframammary (crease) incision and my scar is TEENY and barely noticeable. Dr Martin did a great job! At one point a few weeks ago I was concerned about how I was healing and one of my breasts were oblong in shape. They scheduled me for an extra appointment just to ease my fears and told me what I was experiencing was normal and part of the healing process. He was right because now that breast is the round shape it's supposed to be. He did a great job, I am very happy with my size and look at over 6 weeks post op.
