25 female. 370/320 sientra round base shaped implants

I've been looking at this site for a while now...

I've been looking at this site for a while now since I've decided to do this surgery. It's really helped me to see real people and their experiences and help ease my nerves. I have a 5 year old girl and breasted, so naturally my breasts aren't now what they used to be. I'm very self conscious about my breasts now and feel that this procedure will help boost my self confidence in so many ways. The thing I'm most nervous about is the outcome.

After going back and forth trying to decide what type of implant and what size to do I've finally made my decision. I am going with Sientra shaped round base textured implants. My left side will be 370cc's and my right will be 320cc's. I'm excited to do the shaped gummy bear implants because they're suppose to have a more natural look compared to a straight circle look, which I'm really wanting to avoid.

I'm 5'10"
135 lbs
Beginning size: deflated 34 B

My surgery is Wednesday and am so nervous but so excited at the same time.
I'll keep everyone updated on how they turn out.

I did it!

Ia had my appointment yesterday and everything seemed to go extremely smooth. But, holy shit they hurt. Burning sensation around my incision where the tubes are connected. No bruising that I noticed yet. They already look great even though they're extremely tight and feel like huge rocks ripped out if my chest. I had no clue what cup size they will be I can't move to the point were I could even fathom taking off my robe I pave had on some yesterday. I know I'm going to so happy with the size I chose. 370/320 unders. Sientra round base shaped implants. It us is how helpless I feel even to reach 2 feet to grab my mess is a huge chore...I'm hoping each day will just keep getting better

Getting better little by little

So it's Friday night. E worst part is sleeping, waking up and being super tight along with burning on my stitched where the tubes were placed to get rid of fluid. I had my first post op appt today and the doc said they are healing great. I can't wait to see what they'll look like when the swelling has gone down. I have to keep these tubes in till Monday though which really sucks bc that is the most annoying part.

Updated pics

All I want is a shower!!!

It's day three since my surgery. Pain has seemed to subside a lot even since yesterday. I can get in and out of bed without helper squirming around for about 5 min. My doctor won't let me shower till the tubes are out and it's driving me nuts! Also, the bandeau I have to wear 24/7 is getting pretty annoying. I'm ready for these baby's to start feeling like normal so I can go about my normal routine. Most importantly I can't wait to start shopping for new bras, clothes, or anything that gives me an excuse to buy fun new things :))

Slowly recovering

Yesterday I went to the doctor to have my tubes removed...ouch...I was so excited though bc those things were holding me back. I felt great all day went shopping trying in new things and looking at the difference. They told me not to go bra shopping yet bc they are still changing...I still stopped into vs bc it was the semi annual sale...tried on different sizes and right now am fitting into 34 DD! I held off though bc my doc told me not to wear a bra for a MONTH! I bartend and I'm not sure how that one is going to work out ha. I guess undershirts are going to be my new best friend. I was exhausted after yesterday though and had a really hard time sleeping last night. Oh I finally got to shower for the first time as well, yay!!! Last night was rough...my boobs felt so much pressure on the incisions and pain, they feel heavy and achy. I think i over did myself yesterday bc I'm definitely feeling it today. Going to take it easy and rest most of the day hoping they start to feel better soon. And lighter....but I am in love with them. So happy for going with the size and type of implant I did. My doctor did am amazing Jo. And I definitely think it was worth it.

I had consultation with PS today and I am considering to go with Sientra. You look great. Do you have more pictures. What you think about your implants.?

HI, I had the same implants done by Dr.Broadway 5 days ago and just had an appt with me. The left has dropped nicely but the right is really high. All he told me was that I need to push on it (pretty much all the time) to make it go down and there is always a risk of having to reopen it. I am freaking out right now. did you have to do this?

@COgirl77 do you have any updated pictures? I am getting the exact same implants from Dr.Broadway in 2 days and am just really curious to see some "after"pics with your tubes out. I am really nervous about the pain but I think it will be worth it!

Im getting these from Dr.Broadway on the 9th of April! Im getting so nervous but I think it will be worth it! Did the risk of seromas scare you at all? Thats what is making me anxious. And the scars!

I am in the greater Denver area and have looked (probably a weird number of times) at Dr. Broadway's website. Did he suggest the shaped gummy implants or did you go in knowing that is what you wanted? It seems like only thinner women are candidates and they look great and really natural on you. Just curious how you decided on those versus standard silicone. Thanks!

I had researched the funny bear implants and went in knowing that's what I was leaning torwards....he also was pretty persistent on those as well...right before my surgery I was having doubts and starting wondering if I should change to a regular silicone gel...but stayed with my original choice...I'm really glad I did! I honestly love them, know that they are fully healed. I will update pics soon. The one thing that discouraged me was not being able to see enough before after pics bc they are newer implants and also I was scared the shape would look too cone-y if that makes sense. But they look so natural my bra size went from small 34b to a 34 D

I agree, I would like to see more "after" photos, guess you have to have a little faith. Thanks for replying and I look forward to seeing the healed result. Was there a warranty that came with those Sientra's? Just curious....thanks again

Yes! Lifetime warranty :)

They look very natural by the way. The pictures of the tunes in the really creeped me out though.

You will do great! Good luck!

Hey I got mine done yesterday too and I'm in the same bias as far as the pain goes. Man I hope it's over soon!! Congrats on the girls :) yay for recovery buddies!
  • Reply
How are you feeling?? I will go through phases of feeling okay, and horrible. I didn't realize how hard it would be to grab something that just out of reach. My incisions burn and I just feel super tight. But so far I think I'm in love with them! Stick in there I think last night/today is the worst. We can only get better from here :)

Feel like crap honestly. My doctor said I'd hate her. She worked her butt off to get in the size I needed to get my wish look but it was super hard and so she said I would be in a lot of pain .... And she's right. Yeah I had no clue is be this "needy" even after three c-sections I didn't hurt this bad :/ only uphill from here though!!

I'm in extreme pain hhhmmm

I'm just hoping all this pain somehow disappears by this afternoon when I get all three kids back :/
  • Reply
Oh girl, I feel for you. Thank goodness my ex has my daughter till Monday night. Good luck!

Keep up on your meds and just try sleeping as much as possible. That's what's going to help you heal the fastest I think, stick in there!

I wonder if larger implants are more painful in general? Or is it more based on elasticity of the boob skin? I'm planning on going big (A to a large c/D) but my current boob skin is pretty loose since breastfeeding for 18 months. Not scary loose or anything. Just not as perky as pre-kid.
  • Reply
I'm sure just bc your skin has to stretch that much more. I breasted for a year and understand the elasticity part. I went under the muscle though which is what I hear is the most painful.
  • Reply
Yeah, I went under the muscle and I think the pain depends on many factors. Your skin elasticity, muscle tightness, and size of implant. Because your muscle doesn't stretch when you breastfeed, if it's under the muscle I wouldn't think it mattered if you previously nursed or not :/ If that makes sense ???.... But previously having breastfed definitely helps with the amount of implant you can fit under the skin :)
