Nervous They'll Be Too Big! - Louisville, KY

I am having an augmentation on Dec 11. I currently wear a 36A. I am 5'5" weighing 160lbs. I tried several sizes on and chose something like 457 in one and 491 in the other. I am afraid they will turn out too large. I don't want it to look like I am choking on my own boobs. I play softball and work in a hospital so I don't want them "getting in the way". My Dr. offers digital imaging but for some reason I didn't have the opportunity to check that out. I think I may ask about that at my pre op appointment. I look at pictures online of women around my current bra size and some obtain Ds with a smaller amount of cc and some with a larger amount. Any advice would be great!

look at my pic's I'm 5'4 and 140 I went with 550cc silicone gel style 45 Ultra high profile, check it out. and please realize I'm only 6 1/2 weeks post they are still making there way into nicely shaped breasts not balls..... : )

I've already warned my immediate family I'm probably going to look huge at Christmas due to swelling so don't freak out when they see!

Well my surgery was Dec 11. I am just over 2...

Well my surgery was Dec 11. I am just over 2 months post op. I love them! I play with them all the time lol. They came out the exact size I wanted. I started as a 36A and after 495cc I am now a 36 D. Ive really just started wearing low cut shirts and now im addicted to them. All of my clothes still fit for the most part.
My birthday was 3 days after surgery so I did get a little depressed because I didn't enjoy it much. I qas being lazy and my mom finally told me I needed to get up and get moving. As soon as I did I felt so much better. I am a nursing assistant at a hospital. I went back to work on Dec 27 and had no problems. I think the weirdest feeling was shifting gears in my car.
I have so much more self confidence now! When I was recovering I kept thinking to myself why did I do this? But now that I have no stitches, the swelling has gone down, and they've dropped I wouldn't go back! Before I always had padded bras, even to workout or play sports in. Now, I qear sportsbras probably 80% of the time. Im much more comfortable in my own skin :)

I love your honesty with how you found your doctor!   Did you end up getting your procedure done?

Honestly, I asked a girl at Hooters where she got hers done. I looked him up, called, and set an appointment. After I had aleready chose him I found out a ton of girls I work with had already had work done by him and had absolutely amazing things to say! My gynecologist is a friend of my family (weird, i know!) And to calm my mom I asked her about the procedure. When I told her who I chose she said if I hadn't already picked he is who she would recommend. She knew him on a first name basis too!
