5'9 130 Pounds 550cc hp **1 week post op NEW PICS**

I am 27 years old 5'9 130 pounds.I have a 2 and 4 year old,I nursed both.I had my first BA in 2005 and went with a 360cc saline which gave me a 34c.I lost volume with nursing and now have my next BA on the 26th of april.8 days from now.My doctor recommended 500-550cc high profile or moderate plus silicone gummy bear implants.I am nervous of them being too big!I want a natural look,but i dont want to have to wear a super padded bra anymore.I got my previous implants through my underarms and they have always been fuller on top than on bottom,like they never dropped.I am going through my nipple now.If anyone has advice on what size i should go with i would really appreciate it!!

Tomorrow is my BA and i cant wait to get there and...

Tomorrow is my BA and i cant wait to get there and be done with it already!I was really looking forward to going through my nipple,but the bag is prefilled and i have small nipples.I dont think they will be able to fit 550cc unless they go through under my breast.Im not totally against it,i just dont want another visible scar.I had my last BA done through my underarms and im so self conscious of it that i never raise my arms if i know they might show.im worried that in my most intimate moment they will be staring my husband in the face.lol not that he is looking for scars.I am really happy i found this community of women.Its such a safe easy place to vent and no one judges you!I cant wait to post pictures.My surgery is tomorrow,i go in at 11:30 and start at 1:30.I will be ready to chew my arm off by then ill be so hungry.

So I am about 4 hours post op and I feel pretty...

So I am about 4 hours post op and I feel pretty good.My sternum is really sore right now,it hurts to breathe.I was givin hydro codeine and medicine for nausea.I went with the 550cc hp silicone implants through the bottom of my breast.I had to go that way bc a the gummy bear implants are pre filled.There was no way she was getting that through my nipple.I had to put my insecurities about The scarring behind me.I am so glad i went with 550 instead of 500 bc they do not look too big at all!I did not want big boobs bc I am athletic build and very narrow.My body is built like Gweneth Paltrow,but I wanted full breasts like Austin's partridge.i will keep everyone updated with pictures.Thank you for being so supportive and nonjudgemental!

The nausea medication is called phenigren.I have...

The nausea medication is called phenigren.I have only been eating saltine cracker and drinking sprite bc my dr said eating salty and sweet food and drinking sprite is best.She was right bc i feel good.I have a sleep number bed and I have it sitting up with my legs elevated a bit.i am also taking chocolate ex lax,it tastes like a Hershey bar only not as sweet.Get some and you will love it!!I do not want to be stopped up like I was with my first BA,that was the hardest part

My armpit incision was the biggest mistake.I just...

My armpit incision was the biggest mistake.I just went under and I feel so much better than I did last time!My underarm incisions got really infected and ooze green and they would get these hard knots.I would squeeze it and white stuff would come out and it was so stinky.it took months for them to heal bc I would lift my arms and it would tear them open.I got saline last time and they were really hard.I am not even 1 day post op right now and they are so soft.Everyone is different.I would definitely listen to your doctor,but do lots of research!My last doctor actually told me he didn't like doing armpit incisions,but I didn't want a visible scar.8 years later i still don't lift my arms while wearing a tank!i should've listened,but I got it right this time.Good luck on finding what's best for you!

So it's been about 24 hours post op and I couldn't...

So it's been about 24 hours post op and I couldn't be happier.I am so glad I went with 550cc hp instead of 500!Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to do so.I looked at other pictures of women with 550 and thought they looked a little big for me.So it is true that taller women really eat up ccs,I just thought with my particular build I was an exception(small frame).They are high and swollen right now,but I love them already.I can't stop touching them bc they are so soft and squishy compared to my saline!They are still sitting a little far apart,I really hope that changes once they drop.I have been pressing fresh fruits and veggies,eating chocolate exlax like candy(it's so good),drinking lots of water,and rubbing arnica gel all over my breasts.

So this is my day 2 post op update!i am feeling...

So this is my day 2 post op update!i am feeling much better today.I can finally get out of bed in a decent amount of time.i am really looking forward to taking a shower sometime soon.I actually don't know how long I am supposed to wait to get my stitches wet?I took a bath yesterday and I was careful not to get my upper half wet.If anyone knows how long you are supposed to wait please let me know!My PS told me not to wear a bra and I am glad bc it really hurts my incision.I tried on a few bras today just to see what I look like.I am so happy with my results.It looks like I will be a small d,which is exactly what I wanted.I am so glad I went with the larger size.My only concerns at this point are A)are my breasts going to get closer together B)I really hope I don't lose much volume.I am happy I went with high profile bc I like that I have quite a bit of projection.I would have gone up to 600 had I known that I could handle 550 so good.Overall I am very happy with my size and the shape of my breasts.I am looking forward to the drop and fluff!

Day 4 post op:I am feeling really tight today and...

Day 4 post op:I am feeling really tight today and also very high.My implants feel very tight,as does my chest.I feel like my chest is going to bust open as if i were wearing a button down top,but instead its my skin.I have been massaging with coconut oil and arnica gel(alternating),just to get some sort of relief.I find this a little surprising,as i had extra skin due to breastfeeding twice and a prior BA.I was off my pain meds after the second night home and i took 1/2 of one just to get some rest last night.I woke up with a little blood on my shirt from my stitches.My PS asked me not to wear a bra until my post op(its thursday).I have never heard of anyone else not having to wear a bra.She told me it would aggravate my incisions(under my breast).I wonder if this is also bc i complained of my breast being too high,I really like the look of naturally hanging breast.She told me i am short through the upper part of my chest and my stomach is just very long.I guess thats great for women who want the high look.She said having low hanging breasts just isnt in the cards for me,as she can not change that about me?She can only make my pocket so low.Other than the high and tight feeling i am really happy with the size!I really think they fit my frame quite nice,and to think i was worried!I only went up 190cc,and every 200cc is a cup sz.I had to rig up a 32d bra before and i am still fitting those only i really fill them out!!I might even need to go up to a 34 once they drop and FLUFF(i cant say that with a straight face).I hope that my breasts migrate closer together as they drop and soften up a bit.I have noticed a little bounce when im walking.I thought i would be so excited about this,but right now it hurts like a Bitch.Overall its been a good experience,not nearly as painful as my first BA and much bettter results.I am looking forward to heeling and shopping for sexy little things!Yeay boobies

Today is my 1 week post op!I had my first doctors visit yesterday.I knew i was having some unnecessary pain and i figured out why!My doctor took my tape off and my stitches out(hurt like a MFer) and to no surprise my left side is infected.I was told to wear Neosporin and keep it covered during the day.If it doesnt get better i will need antibiotics.I told her i was missing sleep bc i always sleep on my side and i cant now.If i lay on one side my breasts fall to the other side and it pulls on my stitches.She told me to make sure i keep my shoulders back and check my posture bc this will help the implants to drop.Do not wear a bra for 3 weeks bc i dont want anything pushing them up.Massage as often as i can remember(3 times a day) and check back in 3 weeks.She said they look good other tahn the infection.She told me she had to run a stich up the side if my breast on the inside bc my implants kept going under my arms.I am feeling pretty good during the day now,no pain pills during the day since day 2!I only take one at night to help me fall asleep.Im still very pleased with my size.I look like the size i was before wearing a padded bra,only im not wearing one!!No one has looked at my breast or asked my if ive done something?i even went to the gym today and did leg press,inner/outer hip abductors,donkey kicks,worked my hamstring and quads quite a bit on machines,and walked on an incline on the treadmill!i wore a bra tank and a zip up jacket.I looked like i always do,so for that i am thankful.

Just out of curiosity how are yours now? We have the sand body build and I also got the exact same implants. To be honest I'm pretty unhappy..feeling as though I made a mistake and went too big. For my frame it seemed like a good fit. In reality I'm growing more and more upset with their size.

I had a consult with the same PS & am looking at saline vs Silicone just for peace of mind. I didn't ask to see/feel the gummy bear implant although now I wish I had of. Do you know the difference in cost for those over saline?

I also started with saline using the armpit incision... my implants look elongated and never dropped. I want a high centered nipple and am getting a revision tomorrow!

I'm so sorry I haven't checked in,it's been a while.Sounds like we are the same.How are you coming along?

Your results are amazing! Is there any way you can post pictures with clothing on so I can see what it looks like under clothes? Also you say you would have gone 600, but would you have gone any larger than 600? And also what size were you to begin with, like before you had your first BA?

I'm sorry I'm just now getting back with you,I hope it's not too late.i will post pics with clothes on.Overall I am happy with the size,although I could have gone with 600.I am a 34c or 32d(depends on brand,and they are sister sizes.)I was a full b all c before.i feel like I still need a small amout of padding to look full in clothing.

How comfortable they are to run or train ? I am same height 5'9 130 athletic workout 3 tomes a week. I saw Dr edwards and he gave me options either 460 HP or 500 HP silicone. I cant decide which one to choose. Are you happy with 550 HP or if you would go back you would choose smaller size?

Sorry to get back with you so late!They are perfectly fine to run with.I really need to update my pictures bc they are not big at all!My dr. gave me a choice of 450-500 cc and i went with 550.I am more than pleased with my results.I did not want them to look too obvious,but then again i didn't want to pay not to see much of a change.I do wish i would have gone 600.When people told me "youre tall,you can go bigger and handle it" i really thought there wasnt much truth to that.It is 100% true!I have lost some size since my last post bc of swelling and dropping.I am wearing the same bras i was before only they fit me like they are supposed to now.To answer your question,i absolutely would not go smaller.I am athletic,i like running,swimming,yoga,ballet bar....I can do all of those things still with no problem.I started walking briskly 2 weeks after my surgery and i was full on running after 3 1/2 weeks!
