I have wanted boobs forever! LOL. I told myself I would get them for my 40th birthday,,I'll be 39 this Sept,,just couldn't wait any longer! I'm 5'6" around 125-127lbs. I hope to be a full C (I think) I don't even know what size I am now,,34-36A ish.


My biggest concern after is being able to workout!! Anyone who has gone thru this any tips would be greatly appreciated!


I have a very supportive husband, he doesn't think I need them but is fine with me going for it. I am super self conscious about them. I won't even change my shirt in front of my husband b/c they just disgust me.


Pre-op is 3-25 and I can't wait b/c I get to try some on. I'm going to Dr Hochstein. He is super nice and pretty well known here in Miami. I'm doing silicone and he expects somewhere between 391 -420 cc's. Peri-areaolar incision. If anyone has had this approach I love to hear how it went!
My husband's surprise 40th b-day is the day after surgery at our house! Should be interesting. Our moms and friends will be here so I won't need to do anything but boss people around (LOL,JK). I have a pretty high pain tolerance. Had a kidney stone, took some ibuprofen and still worked out. Threw out my back and still hobbled around the mall to go shopping. So we will see.
My cousin will be here and she has had hers done so I will be with someone who can sympathize. My poor mom is worried, old fashioned doesn't really believe in plastic surgery, but still very supportive, We are both RN's so we have done our research.
I' so happy I found this site. I've been reading all the stories I can. Thanks to all you girls posting! It's awesome to have some neutral support! Will post the awful before pics and can't wait til I have the "afters" to post!

Just had mammogram and blood work done that I needed for Pre-op. Did any have to get a mammogram?? My Dr makes everyone get one done if they haven't previously had one.
Good luck to you! I'm day 12 and loving my new girls!

Thank you! You look great!! Did you go under or over? How was the first few days??

Thank you! I went under, first few days keep up on your pain meds. And something for constipation too :) I'm in healthcare too and was worried about going back on Monday (had it done Friday) but it wasn't to awful. By that time I was off Percocet , remember feeling really tired. Wish I would have done this 20 years ago!

So it's 3:30am and I'm finally caught up at work and I'm back on the computer looking at boobs!! Good thing I work in a hospital as my supervisor just walked by and saw my computer screen. LOL!!
I'm looking at my PS's before and afters and picking the looks I love. Friday will be 3 weeks til my BA . The longest 3 weeks ever!!! I have these constant butterflies in my stomach cuz I'm so flipping excited!!
I had a list of ?'s for my Pre-op ready and my phone deleted them,, do you think I can remember any of them now?!? Of course not!
Hope everyone is having a great night/day depending on where you are and Good Luck to all of you getting your boobies tomorrow (or today, depending where you are, LOL)

So far, I have only purchased Danskin bra in black (I have a pic on my profile if you would like to look) and white fruite of the looms...LOL so as far as color, perhaps Danskin has more. I think, if I'm not mistaken, VS may have some cool ones online. I'm looking for some myself and will definitely post if I find any! Let me know if you find any cute ones too :)

Thanks!! Will definitely let you know if I find any cute ones!!

Can't believe you only have 3 weeks left! Enjoyed reading your posts since I had similar insecurities with changing my clothes in front of my hubby prior. Now I feel like I'm just flashing him any chance I get (without the kiddos around ofcourse, lol!) You were mentioning about working out; I know that everyone heals differently but on my day 8 post appt, I was cleared to do light activities (stair steppers, elliptical, walking on treadmill and bike)...I hope you may have similar results because I was getting stir crazy just not being able to work out for a week! It seems with your pain tolerance, you would do very well with your BA. Can't wait to hear more about your journey! Best of luck!

Just want to say Happy St. Patty's Day to all my booby pals. Be safe and enjoy!
Hi! Glad you found this site, it is great isn't it! I'm about 8 weeks post op, I'm 5' 5" 118 lb, I got 400cc HP silicone unders, I ended up a full C. I was an A pre op. As far as bras, I got some zip front sports bras from VS that are bright colors. Pink & black & black & gold. A large is what fit, especially at first when they were swollen, in fact they were a little tight at first! I thought they would be ok for working out, but they are not! Way too much bounce! I did get some of the fruit of the loom that open in the front, I didn't like them at all, they didn't have any kind of support, I didn't think they were comfortable. I sent them back. My very favorites have been Genie & Ahhh bra's. They just pull over, but they're very comfy. At my 8 day appt my PS said I could wear anything that was comfortable to me that didn't have wires. Even now that I have nice new bras, after I've been in them all day when I get home I want to change into the genie bras! As far as working out, I'm sure every PS is different but mine said I could walk as much as I wanted but no heavy workout or heavy weights for 3 weeks! I couldn't lift over 10lb (and I have a 2 yr old!) So I started using my elliptical around day 4, I just basically used it as a treadmill, I didn't use the arms on it. I was going fairly slow at first, but I did what I could and did it a few times a day. I had someone here all day helping w my 2 yr old til hubby got home. He's a dr, so he could only take the day of my surgery off. I did have a lot of help though, it sounds like you will too. At around 2 weeks I was able to start doing abs again. When I went back to see her at 2 1/2 week she said I could do what ever I was comfortable doing, working out & picking up my son. Yay! I was so glad! There were definitely some things that still didn't feel comfortable, so I just did what I could. Now I'm completely back to normal except for sleeping on my stomach. That's still not comfy :( I don't know if any of that helps, but I know how you're feeling! I was to the point where I got undressed in the bathroom & ran to get under the cover bc I didn't want my hubby to get a good look! He was fine with how I was before, but I wasn't. I hated how I looked. And I'm 39 too :) we're going to St. Thomas in a couple of weeks for my birthday :) Good luck with everything!

Hi! Thanks so much! Sounds very encouraging! I'm so freaking out about not be able to workout, but as long as I can start at least lite cardio relativey quickly ill be ok. I don't have kids but I do have 5 huskies,, one 75lb one who likes to jump on me all the time! Did you get the VS zip fronts online or at the store. I was thinking buying mediums but now I think maybe ill get large. Hope you have a great birthday!! St Thomas is beautiful
Reply
Yes, I got the VS online & I thought I ordered a med & large I was going to send back whatever didn't work, but I accidentally ordered all large! I have a 15 & 10 yr old too! And an 80lb yellow lab that thinks she's a lap dog, she was great company when I was in bed though! Huskies are so pretty! We've been to St. Thomas twice on cruises & really liked it so we're going for 6 days with NO kids! I also did get some great sports bras for working out, they're by Bali, they hook in the back & have separate cups not just one.

Anyone else scheduled for BA on 4-5-13... I don't want to go all by myself :-( feeling a little lonely here! LOL!
I'm day 5 and my PS only wants me in the surgical bra right now. It's hideous and a bit uncomfortable at times. I'd check with your PS to see what he wants you to wear. I bought a champion zip front as well. I'd stay away from anything you have to pull over your head as I'm still having trouble putting a simple tshirt on although that's getting better.

So I just realized my post from the other got cut off.. I was wondering (off the boobie subject) If any one on here is using or knows about Poshmark? It's an app for iphone/ipad. You sell your own stuff and can buy other peoples stuff. I'm obsessed with it!! Cleaning out my closet of things I don't or have never worn or used. Also got myself a few new coach purses at great prices. If you are anything like me I am a certified shopaholic!! I figured with the new boobs a lot of you may have things that don't fit anymore and why not make a little money. I've actually sold quite a few of my things already. Between boobs and selling my stuff I really have no time for anything else! LOL
Back to boobies....My BA is 2 weeks from tomorrow and I am sooooo excited. I have permanent butterflies in my belly! Pre-op on Monday to finalize payment and pick my size. Gonna try to get surgery a couple days sooner,,we'll see how that goes.
Good luck to anyone having their surgery today!!

Ok ladies, I found a non wire sport bra on Walmart.com that front closes and comes in 7 colors. It's called the Danskin now- Front Close Deep Plunge Sport bra. It's under $12. Since I haven't had my surgery yet if any of you lucky post-op ladies decide to check these out let me know if you think they would work!!
Only a few more weeks! Im jealous you get yours a few days before me :) I had to pick a date that was good for my mother in law to come help with my little one post op. As far as I can tell after doing some extensive online shopping I think it's only plain sports bras until the doc clears you for different ones. It seems like the front zip ones only come in three colors. Are you taking any of the herbal or vitamins that people seem to recommend on here? I have heard mixed reviews on the subject.
Reply
The only thing I started taking was a multi vit. It was really the only thing the PS rec for now. I know they do rec the arnica and some scar cream after. I will prob do the arnica but I'm having the nipple incision so I don't really care about scarring, ill save my $$ on that one. I do think I will get the cocoa butter to prevent stretch marks tho!
Reply
I didn't take anything other than what the doctor prescribed and that was definitely enough! Between pain pills, nausea meds, antibiotics and muscle relaxers I had plenty of meds. I didn't use any cream for bruising either and I haven't had any. Couldn't hurt though!

How long did it for you to get an appointment with him? I'm planning on using him too! Hopefully some time in September!
Reply
I believe I called the office to schedule the consult on or around Feb 18 and had the consult on Feb 27. Consult are only done on Mon & Wed's. However the earliest I could get for surgery was April 5th. Begged for earlier but he's pretty booked, which I guess is a good thing! LOL. I have Pre-op on Monday :-) If you search his name on You Tube there is a 20-30min video he did talking all about BA. It's pretty interesting and really made me feel comfortable picking him. I watched it before I had my consult. Good luck and keep us posted!!

Tomorrow morning is Pre-op! Can't wait! I was originally set on 420cc now I'm thinking 475cc. Now I have to find a way to tell them without the husband knowing since he is going with me. He doesn't want me huge,, blah, blah, blah,, I'm paying for it and its no one business but mine! All I need is him bringing me down when I'm so excited!!
I'm scheduled for 4/5 but I'm going to beg and plead to see if they can get me in earlier that week. Wish me luck :-)

So how long before you post op ladies could use ibuprofen? I refuse to take narcotics, I just don't like the way they make me feel and I'd rather just feel the pain instead. Plus pain meds usually aren't supposed to make you pain free just take the edge off. So I'm just gonna suck down the Tylenol XS until I'm allowed ibuprofen.
I was allowed to switch to IBU after the first 72hrs
Reply
Here's wishing you goodluck!!! I'm sure you will be great!! My Ps did not want me to take any NSAIDS like IBU for 2 wks post op because of the inc risk of bleeding so... Tylenol actually worked fine for me since first day :)
Reply
Yea I kinda figured it may be a couple weeks. I feel better about my Tylenol choice now, thank you!! I plan to take the muscle relaxer at night since I pass right out from them. When I hurt my back I cut my 10mg flexeril into 4ths and took 2.5. I would be a ZOMBIE!! LOL. My husband takes a full 10mg and he's wide awake... I don't get it

So I'm totally freaking out. I hurt my lower back yesterday reaching behind me to get a pillow to prop behind my dog (My dogs are totally spoiled) Couldn't workout yesterday, could barely walk. It's a little better today but not enough to work out!! Surgery in a week and can't work out for a while after that! Top it off I have to work tonight (I'm an RN- 12 hour shift 7p-7a) i don't have enough PTO to take off now since I have almost 2 weeks coming up for surgery. UGH!!! I'm so mad right now
Hi! I too am a workout fanatic but, I have to tell you, as much as it sucks, take it easy post surgery. My surgeon didn't want me working out for 6-8 weeks post, especially any arms/chest (I asked him if he liked that fantasy land he lived in). I kind of ignored him and did some light arm stuff at 5 weeks and regretted it for days. They want your stitches to have time to heal without ripping and your implants to settle in correctly without moving. Think of it this way, it's only 6 or so weeks after major surgery to give your body time to heal properly so you don't have problems for the next 20+ years. Obviously light cardio and lower body is fine but, you'll notice you won't really be up to full par again until about 7 weeks post surgery. Congrats on the soon to be new boobs!
Reply
I know it's going to be tough!! Once I get to the point where I can do the light cardio and some weights ill be ok. I'm ok with not doing chest but holding off on arms will be hard! I don't want any bat wings! LOL

Hope you feel better soon!! Take some Tylenol to make you feel better... Looking forward to your post BA pics soon :)

So I'm 4 days away and super excited and getting a little nervous. Mostly about anesthesia since I've never had surgery. I expect the pain but not nervous about it, I can deal with the pain. Have to return to work on PO day 11. I'm an RN so I hope I'll be ok. It's only 1 night then I have an additional $ days off before I go back again. Whats really freaking me out is the back injury I sustained on Monday. I'm working almost everyday this week and have had no time to take my flexeril and rest it. I went to Urgent care and they put me out for a day?!? Really?? I'm gonna get so much flack for calling out sick for more than 1 day but I was miserable at work last night. It's lower back/tailbone so sitting and standing really make it worse ( plus I sucked it up and worked out for 2hrs...ooopsie!) I was in heaven today laying on my heating pad... and I'm taking some wine as my pain killer. LOL! I hate pills. My biggest fear is not waking up from surgery...has anyone else had that fear also. I have 5 dogs that are my love and my biggest fear is not getting back to them. Nurses are the worst damn patients! LOL. I bitched at the Urgent care tech b/c she wanted to weigh me this am. I literally said "Are you F**King kidding me,,it has no relevence to my injury,,,,she didn't appreciate that
Well guess I'm headed back to the couch and my heating pad. Hope everyone in boobieville is healing well and to all those waiting,,,hope to see you on the other side :-)
So sorry to hear about your injury a couple of days ago.. I fractured my tailbone 3 weeks ago playing in the playground with my toddler... and I still can't sit straight up - have to shift weight between my buns. my surgery is in 10 days, and yours is in 4 days? I hope the pain subsides for both of us, else, sitting on the bed recovering from our surgery with fractured tailbone isn't just going to work out... good luck!!
Reply
OMG that is awful!! Mine I believe is just muscular (I hope). Now I feel bad about bitching. I can't imagine what a (literal) pain in the ass a broken one is. Here's hoping we both feel better! And good luck with surgery!!

So now I'm doubting my size choice. I settled with the 397cc sizer which means he will put in the 450cc....but I saw a couple people on here with the 450cc and while they look great they are just not big enough for me :-(. Surgery is on Tues and office isn't open until Mon. is it too late to change my mindf?? Has anyone done this at the last minute?? I want to go to the next size up. Do you guys think I can change last minute??

I see a lot of posts with ladies with one boob...

I see a lot of posts with ladies with one boob bigger than the other and the PS uses 2 different implant sizes. While I don't have this problem, my PS doesn't do that. He takes out enough breast tissue from the bigger breast so it equals the smaller breast and puts in the same size implants. Makes a lot of sense to me. It's just one of the reasons I chose him even though it's not one of my issues. Just thought I'd throw that out there for you ladies
Hey there! I don't think that it is never too late to change your mind. Before my surgery my PS sat down and spoke with me about my final sizing (before getting the sedation) just to make sure that I have already settled my mind on what I wanted (although it never did settle because I was still debating on which one). My PS had a lot of silicone sizes available in case a patient changes their minds and I would think that since your PS is very well known, he would have a lot of "stock" in his place as well... Can't wait to see the results!
Reply
Thank you! I can't wait to see the results either! LOL
Reply
It can't be too late you haven't had surgery yet! I think it is smart to call the docs office on Monday. You don't want to have any size regrets if you can help it. I know my doc has multiply implants on hand for every surgery because he doesn't pic the final size until actually going in and seeing the women's anatomy. It sounds like you have a very highly qualified doc so I am sure he does something similar. Go for sorry about your injury! What horrible timing. I definitely know what you mean about being afraid to wake up from the anesthesia. I feel that way too, I just want to be ok to take care of my son and I can tell your doggies Are like your children. I think it is pretty normal for people to feel that way before surgery. I'm not sure what your beliefs are, but I'll pray for you. Good luck you are almost there!

Ok, so here's how my day went yesterday. Since I didn't have to be at the surgi-center til 3pm I was able to have liquids up until 7:30am. So ingot my butt up at 6am to get to Starbucks and get myself a venti white mocha. Went to BJ's to get some stuff for the hubby's party on Saturday. Side note I was super happy b/c BJ's had my wine $4 cheaper than anywhere else and also had $1.50 coupon with it!! I bought 3 bottles :-)
Anywho,,, got home and was going to try to nap so I could forget about my growling belly and then the office called and asked to me be there a 1/2 hr early. Wasn't sure about traffic since this is Miami and they are about an hour north of me so we got there at 2pm. Got called back at 3pm went into the Pre-op room got undressed (HOLY COLD in there) got weighed and had my preg test done. They thankfully have me a robe to wear over my stylish paper drape. Also has to wear the blue OR booties and that horrible OR shower cap,, def was NOT a good look for me LOL. The nurse put in my IV and OUCH, that damn thing hurt the most. The anesthesiologist requests it in the hand which sucks! I never put then in the hand on my pt's cuz it hurts! Not so much putting it in but it's very uncomfortable the whole time it's there.. And she left me with this huge bruise. After that I had to go get my before pics taken. When she told me she had to get one of my face I almost cried,,, I was wearing that silly OR shower cap!! LOL. Then I went to the exam room so the Dr could come mark me up. When he came I asked if I could go up to the next size and he said sure. I thought they were 475cc but after I looked at my implant card I found out the were 490cc LOL! Didn't tell my husband that one!. I walked into the OR and hopes up on the table. I was not nervous at all until I got on the table,, then I got a little nervous. The Anes asked a few more questions (he had called me the night before also) then told me he was giving me my first margarita. Then the nurse put on the circulation booties in my legs and I don't remember anything after that til I woke up in recovery. I woke up laughing hysterically and I couldn't stop for a good 5 min. The nurses asked if I was crying and I said no I'm laughing. Then they asked what I was laughing about and I told them I had no idea. I was so afraid I was going to mess up my surgery by laughing so much! She then gave me a pain pill (Demerol) got me dressed and wheeled me. Ride home was ok, bumps kinda sucked my not horrible. Got home sat on the couch and watches TV. Had lobster bisque and cheese tortellini for dinner and took 1/2 Percocet. Was feeling pretty good but pain started to come back before pain med was due so I took half a Valium. Normally these type of meds knock me out but I was fine. Still feeling tight and sore so I took the other 1/2 of the Valium and another 1/2 perc b/c it was time. Got a little sleep on & off. Next pain med was due at 5:30am so I took a whole perc this time and layed down til 6:30am when my dogs got up. I feel fine. Pain under control just a lot of tightness and soreness. My husband on the other hand is another story. Been puking his guts out since 7am... Feel bad b/c I can't do anything around the house to help. He just better keep whatever it is to himself. Took a couple more pics this am I will post. To all my boobies buddies I hope you are recovering well and and to all the ladies scheduled for today GOOD LUCK!

Post Op Day3- Feeling awesome! Still taking 1 percocet every 4hrs and will prob switch to the tylenol later today. Getting ready to go do some last minute shopping with my mom for my hubby's party tomorrow so I figure it's better to have the percocet for that. My right boob hurts a little b/c I think I tweaked it yesterday when I had to break my dogs little fight. My left one doesn't hurt at all. Still have some pressure of course,,like I had a hard workout. The worst thing is the blisters the tape left. I have one big one that keeps leaking and stained my new sport bra :-( Other than that I am beyond happy and I love my new boobies!! Will add some more pics later
BTW has your hubby been weirded out by them? It sounds weird but my BF didn't even want to look at them today which of course had me all upset between the meds and being stir crazy while I think they look fab! I think he just needs to adjust to this big change. Either way my gf's love them so far but he's supposed to be my number one supporter having lived with him almost 3 years. Ugh.

No he's been fine. He's a butt man not a boob guy so he doesn't care either way if I had them done or not. He just didn't want porn star boobs.

Same here or so I thought. It was the same when I had my rhinoplasty too almost like he's dealing with a whole other person. I guess everyone handles it differently!

Post-op day 4 did WAY to much yesterday!! LOL my right boob is screaming at me and I can't feel my ass from sleeping on it all night! Which is very strange since I slept in the same position the last 3 nights and I wa fine. Oh well. Had to take a Percocet this morning and icing it now. Hubby's party is today, thankfully don't have to do much since I have lots if great family and friends helping me. I'm only making Jell-O shots which I think I can handle. Took my first shower yesterday and I had no problems and it felt sooo good!! Boobs still high and tight, look pretty much the same. Been doing my massages so hopefully they will soften soon!!

So how long does it take for this bloat to go...

So how long does it take for this bloat to go away?!? My belly is so round! I have no problems going to the bathroom so it isn't that, I haven't even been eating very much b/c the Percocet leave me with no appetite. I don't get it! I can't even fit into my jeans... Is this normal?!?
Yeah I feel like im 4months pregnant! Im 4 days post op so hopefully it will be down this weekend! Your boobies look great! Glad your healing fine

I was bloated for almost a week eventhough I had my first BM second day... I think its from anaesthesia and how the body responds usually post surgery. Don't worry it will go down soon :-)

Hey!! The bloat is normal I was eating normally and going to the bathroom normally too and it still stuck around for about 1 and a half to 2 weeks!! No fun but once it did go away it made my boobs look that much better :)

Post Op day 6- Noticed this morning my stomach has deflated a little bit finally!! Still sore but only taking tylenol now. I really only rested the day of surgery and post op day 1. Since then I have been go-go-go. I have family visiting and had to prep for a party at my house this past Saturday. Today 2 family members are leaving but I have 3 more coming! Been doing my massages religously. Left one starting to soften. Right one is more sore than left. I'm pretty sure it's b/c on post op day 2 I had to pull apart 2 of my 50lb dogs that decided to start fighting. Of course it was the 2 that never fight with each other and my husband had just left the house! Pretty sure no damage done tho. Don't think they have dropped much yet but that are looking good. Best thing I have ever done for myself! No regrets at all! They are looking a little beat b/c of the tape blisters i keep getting. Percocets were wonderful for the pain!! They didn't make me feel high or tired, which totally surprised me. I took 1 valium the first night but never took any more so I don't really know if they help or not. Tomorrow is one week Post op!!! Can't believe it's been that long all ready! Will post some more pics tomorrow
Great you are doing well! I think I did a little too much yesterday because I hurt this morn. They are starting to feel smaller, or maybe in just getting used to them because when I got up to look in the mirror this morn they were still big. Phew haha

11 day PO and back to work tonight, yikes. 12 hour shift and I'm an RN. Can't even drive myself cuz it's still too sore. No PTO so I have no choice but to go. Please let it be a slow night. I may be crying in the morning. When did you other RN's out there go back? And how was it?
I took 2weeks time off but called in a week early for something else... just to monitor a high risk pregnant woman with afib so its was a 1:1 pt and she is up and about. My usual unit is float ED and all ICU's and because of the heavy lifting and pushing we do in those areas (300-500lbs++ patients) I really had to give it time before I went back to my unit. By week 2 I was fine but because I was so scared the most that I did was only 8hours. Now that I am 1mo post-op I still have some numb/pain patches but tolerable and my UE ROMs are better. Goodluck on your first day back to work. Hope its not too busy. *crossfingers*

I'm 2 weeks PO today! Go for my 2 week check up tomorrow. Still loving them! Still have some soreness, not bad, totally tolerable. Getting much softer. The feeling in my skin is starting to return (was numb after surgery) so they are a little sensitive but not bad. Still waiting for my blister marks to heal :-( the pink sport bra in the pics I just posted is the most comfortable EVER! They come in 2 pks and great colors for 12$ at Walmart, just bought them yesterday and I wish I had gotten them sooner!! Still not able to drive, steering just hurts too much. Hopefully that will get better by Thursday (back to work). Hope everyone else is doing well!!
Thank you so very much for mentioning those Hanes bandinis on your post/comment! I shopped in Wal-Mart during lunch break and ended up buying 5 sets... lol. 10 bras for less than $60 with superior comfort - what else can we ask for?! Thanks again!! =)

Well work was ok, not to busy but regardless I am super tight and really sore. Was anyone else still sore at 2.5 weeks PO? MyPS said its normal but.... I don't have any nipple sensitivety like some of you but damn I am still sore
I'm still sore too :/ I think you're a day or two ahead of me. Today i was starting to get concerned thinking "why the heck am I still sore at 16 days post op?!". I'm sorry to hear you're still sore too but good to know its "normal". Im mostly sore at the incision area (crease) and super sore and sensitive on my nipples. I'm so ready to feel 100%
Reply
It's actually much better today! I hope it continues! Still sore patches but I don't even need Tylenol. Still get morning boob though but gets better soon after I get up and massage. Hopefully it continues this way. Luckily I never had nipple sensitivity which I'm really happy about! I hope yours start to get better soon, that sounds just awful!

I have to tell you. I commented earlier that I bought the hanes bandini. I got it in purple and lime green because that was the only colors my walmart had. Putting this bra on was the first time I was able to look in the mirror and be like wow I have awesome boobs! :) Before I was wearing this ugly white bra that did nothing for them. It is so comfy and cute. I finally am starting to accept these girls as my own and look in the mirror and see how awesome they are. So again thanks for the bra tip. Love this site.

3 weeks today and I feel pretty good. I've already been doing the elliptical and yesterday did light weight arms...and that was def too much. I am not cleared for weights yet I just did it on my own...I know,,very bad!! I only did 5 lbs but I should have weighted. I've also been doing legs (without weights) and have been fine with that, although I'm super careful. Think I'll not try upper body again til 6 weeks PO which is when he will clear me for it. I never did listen very well...
Anyway I love my boobs and my PS, he is amazing! I wish I had gone up one more size but oh well! I'll save that for my re-do. No idea what size I will end up yet. I'm still in the fruit of the loom bandini's. They are the most comfortable things ever. Still have patches of where the skin is numb but feeling is slowly coming back. I do not have any nipple sensitivity which I've read a lot of you girls do and I'm really happy I don't! I feel for you guys!! Soreness was pretty much gone until I overdid it yesterday.....my bad!!
Absolutely no regrets and I wish I had done this sooner!! Will post some new pics in a bit but I think they look pretty much the same as the 2 week pics. Been massaging since PO day 2 and they are slowly getting squishy!

I never used arnica or bromelian (?sp) I never had any issues and frankly I just thought it was a waste of money. Am I the only one??

I'm 4 weeks today! Went by so fast! Still have some more softening to do but they are getting there. I stood in front of the mirror the other day shaking side to side and jumping (lightly) up and down to see if they are starting to move like boobs,, LOL,, they are!!! Still stuck to just elliptical and walking and legs mostly. Some abs but only on the ball right is what's comfortable for me. I haven't been measured yet but I did a couple of the online calculators from a few diff sites. First of all VS had me at a 36A??? That's what I was before BA and I can assure you my bras do not fit. Another site put me at a 34C,, disappointing, I kinda want a D. I also cannot wear a 34 band it's just too tight,, even before BA. Oh well, I'm just going to go to the store grab a bunch of sizes and see what fits best. I do wish I had gone 2 sizes bigger instead of just 1 size but I live them nonetheless and it's way more than I started with. They don't last forever so when I need to change them I will go bigger. Only soreness now is when I over-do it. Occas morning boob still. I still feel pulling on my sternum when I lay down, kind of annoying. Still waiting for the steri strips to fall off... Those suckers are going anywhere anytime soon, man they are stuck on there! Hope everyone is well!
You look hot... Makes me anxious for my bl/ba.

6 weeks today! Still love them but I think they are too small :-(
Still waiting for my steri strips to call off!! But they did start to loosen yesterday. Still have some numb areas, mostly around the nipple which is where my incision was. No big deal to me. Still doesn't feel right doing high impact aerobics or running yet. I do need to get the appropriate workout bras so hopefully that will help. No problems lifting weights but I'm not doing any chest. I am able to do some planks though.
Hope everyone is doing well. I added a couple pics
small? no way, maybe you been looking at them so much you got used to them. They fit you good, imagine with a push up! wow...

I am looking forward to those push-ups!! LOL! I have to wait 6 months to wear them but I can't wait!

They look awesome and fit you well! I got a "xoxo" sports bra from Ross that was $6 and super comfy. Seems to hold things together, can't wait till I can wear it and work out! One side started to d&f today. It's weird how they go at different times.

Finally boobies without steri strips!

Only took 6 weeks and 2 days!! LOL I helped a little bit, was dying to get them off! Should I use scar cream now?? Any suggestions??

7 weeks!

Adding some more pics. 7 weeks today. Went to Vic Secret and tried on some pink bras,, the 36D fit best YAY!! They are pretty squishy now. High impact exercise still feels weird but Im getting there. Otherwise they are great. No real issues. Keep aggravating the muscle on the right one but I'm right handed so kind of expect it. Still loving them!!

9 weeks PO

Can't believe it's been this long already. I'm back to normal even at the gym, although some high impact I don't go quite as intense as before surgery. The one thing that took forever to feel normal doing was putting on lotion after my shower. Weird right?? LOL. I just noticed today that it doesn't feel strange anymore so I'm not actually sure when it got better. I can wear a 36D or a 34DD but the DD fit a little better :-)) everytime I go to put on a bra I'm sure it's going to be too big! I just don't understand how I fit in that huge ole thing! LOL! My scars are healing well, I try to remember to use scar cream but it doesn't happen to often. I absolutely love my boobs and I'm so happy I did this. It's no secret, I tell and show everyone,, haha! All my girlfriends love how they look. I'm adding some more pics. Hope everyone is well and good luck to anyone heading into surgery soon!
hi my huskies!! how are you doing? i have to be honest with you i know you want bigger boobies eventually but i think the size you have is perfect! you are looking amazing just the way you are now!! but i also understand the boob greed lol i couldnt be greedy i had to go conservative to avoid a lift being absolutely necessary. maybe if i get a lift in the future ill go bigger. but for now my god they feel big enough to me lol they are like rocks!! gotta say though they look off the chain!
Reply
Hi!! And thanks!! I'm actually really happy with the size now. I think my issue is that I'd actually prefer the more fake boob look! LOL! I specifically asked for a natural look and now (too late) I changed my mind! Its all good tho, I can always wear a push up, and they don't last forever so when I need them re-done and I'm an old wrinkly lady I get these big ole fake looking boobs! LMAO! I do really love them tho and I def got what I asked for. I'm stoked I can wear a 34DD!!
Reply
god i know i love that look too but in the long run, for me, with my tiny droopy boobies i had to be careful not to go so big or id def need the lift. so i had to go the more natural/conservative route. and my PS only uses midrange profile so HP's were out of the question unless i needed to have them. but so far, so good. im happy i just wish my friggin nips didnt feel like they were peeling off!!!! ugh it so annyoing!!!!! and i still have the sunburn feeling its urking me!!!! lol cant wait to feel better and actually start enjoying them........
Reply

Just not happy :-(

My PS is awesome and did exactly what I told him to. I just wished I thought about what I wanted a little more. I fooled myself into thinking I just wanted natural not too big boobs, prob cuz I didn't feel like listening to the husband complain (he didn't want "stripper boobs") well now I want stripper boobs!! I want big and kinda fake looking. More cleavage and roundness at the top. I'm not about to get them redone now since its just too much money but when it's time to get them done... Look out!! I've already started to worn the husband,,, and if you don't like you can find another wife. Oh well, I guess it's back to push-ups and chicken cutlets. I still feel like I did before BA with the tiny boobs. They seem to just disappear in clothes and it's doesn't look like I had anything done.
i know EXACTLY how you feel. I was so scared to go 500 and i got 510 cc and 490 cc and im feeling SOOO annoyed that they are like 2 xs smaller than the sizers looked. i know im only like 12 days post op but i know i shoulda went 575cc at least. super annoying! im totally getting those porn star tits when i get them redone as well! lol

12 weeks PO today

Hi all! Well 12 weeks today, I'm back to full workouts except no direct chest work. No pain, unless I over workout I may get a little muscle soreness. I can lay on my stomach but it weirds me out, also free boobing just feels weird. I live in the Hanes Bandinis and wear underwire bras to work no problem. I still wish I went bigger, they seem too small to me, but I love them none the less. I missed my 8 week PO appoint and just never went back since I'm not having any issues.... That's what happens when you're a nurse LOL! I do still need to go back for my free Botox tho!! Super excited. I never really had any swelling and they were never frakenboob or to high up so they didn't really need to drop. I don't see a whole lot of difference from week one except they are soft and squishy now. This experience has been a piece of cake for me,, luckily!! As soon as I can afford I will go bigger, prob won't be for another 5 years but we'll see (I could win the lottery!! LOL) posting a few more pics. My tank tops DO look 100x times better and that I happy about!!
looking awesome!! I also feel weird laying on my stomach as I can feel the implants getting squished and definitely the soreness after a hard workout.. but they are definitely beauties :-)

4 months & some pics

I can't believe it's been 4 months! And I'm still obsessed with boobs! This had to have been the easiest thing I have ever done. No problem with surgery, no reaction to meds, no getting sick, no emotional roller coaster like I read some gals had. I healed super fast and it never really seemed like they needed to drop very much. I never had that fake upper pole look, which I'm kinda sad about. I do still want to go bigger. I know it's ridiculous but I don't see a big difference from my Pre boobs. So stupid I know.... I thought they would be bigger.... Even tho I'm wearing a 34DD?!? I never got professionally measured, just can't be bothered, so I just tried on a whole bunch of bras and bought what fit best. I know VS runs small but I wear their 34DD and also my kohls and Walmart bras are 34DD. So now I'm all obsessed about going bigger, I'm very broad and built like a football player so I know I can pull them off. My grandmother liked to refer to me as big boned (any wonder why I hated the bitch!) I also need more cleavage ..so I'm wearing push ups for that. My Pre boobs were far apart too so I expected that. They are squishy and I seriously sometimes forget I have implants... They feel like they've always been with me. I guess I should've realized before the surgery that I wanted stripper boobs not natural boobs! That's what I get for listening to my husband! Ugh!!! LOL! Wow this post sounds like I'm not happy or grateful and I really am! It's more than I had even if I don't see it myself I KNOW that it is. I'll just save my pennies for my upgrade,,, by that time I may need a lift also! LMAO!! Hope all you post op ladies are doing well and healing fast and good luck to all the Pre -op gals getting ready for their big day!!!

Can u see a difference from 4 weeks to 4 months?
oh my huskies, still on the prowl for more boobs lol i hear you though girl, and you should listen only to yourself and what you want out of your surgery and not anyone else. in the end its your boobs your decision. at least now you know what you want and can dress up the amazing boobs you have now until you can go bigger. have you talked to your PS about it?
Reply
Yup, dead set I want bigger! LOL. I missed my 8 week post-op b/c my dog needed to go to ER vet and I never rescheduled so I have not seen him to talk to him about it yet. I did post a ? To the Dr's on here to get an opinion. I will make an appoint soon to see him unfortunately I can't afford the surgery right now...so I just bought a few more push ups! LOL. I can finally wear VS bras. Pre-op the 34B the band was to tight and the 36a had huge gaps in the cup. Better stop spending my money on bras if I want new implants!!

Random thoughts..

Ok 4 months PO and I'm still boob obsessing.... Bra sizes are really stupid! Why are there no BB or CC? Why AA smaller than A and a DD is bigger than D??? Was it a stupid man that decided this whole sizing thing? Just another way to drive women absolutely crazy... :-p
You look amazing! Just out of curiosity, how did you deal with not working out? My BA is aug 28 and I have the same concern...
Reply
Thanks! It actually wasn't to bad. After 3 weeks I was on elliptical without using the arms. Before that I was easy walking and trying to eat healthy. I really didn't gain any weight except for the 6-8lbs u gain right after surgery with the bloating. By 8 weeks I was back to high impact and heavy weights except for any direct chest work.. Not allowed ever, which is fine withe LOL

Going to see PS today

Going in for my free Botox today and I'm going to ask about going bigger. I really don't want to wait any longer. I heard they now have the 3D imaging so I'm going to see if I can do that. Looking to go to about 600-650cc (100-150cc more than I have now) I also have an email consult with Dr. Pousti! I like my PS but Dr. Pousti is just amazing. Not sure I can swing the $$$ to travel to him but I'm looking into it!
Hi girl...just checking in on you boobie greed sister lol!! It will be interesting to see what your doc says. I've already seen my doc and if I want I can go bigger just go with the higher profile this time instead of mod plus. If I do I'll be going to 600 or 650 as well. I got my quote for a redo at 7000 instead of his usual 11000. It gives me 12 months to think about it and or save up and do some more research. Not sure what I'll do yet. It's a lot of money. My boobs are looking great and have definitely fluffed and look bigger than when I first got them...but will I be totally happy. ....that's my dilemma he he. If I was 10 years younger I'd just wait but at 47 I want to really enjoy these next 10 years with my girls. Let me know how you get on...hugs Shelly xoxo

I'm hoping I can do the 3D today but not sure, I may have to make another appointment but hopefully I can at least find out about the pricing! I will take some time to think about it also!! This boob greed is so bad LOL! I have all the widths and projection s of each type of implant printed out and in my purse! I'm totally obsessing! I think I also need to go high profile but my PS doesn't let you pick the profile. For the meantime I'm stuffing mine into push ups!!

Botox and bigger boobs

Just had my free Botox, my first time and it was a piece of cake, but I can't workout today :-( wish I knew that earlier I would've made the appointment later in the day,, oh well otherwise no restrictions. Got the pricing on going to a bigger size implant. It would be $3800 (original BA was $5500) I need to have a post op with him since I missed my last one so I will speak to him about going bigger then. Waiting to hear back on pricing with Dr Pousti also. Most likely will be more than I can afford with travel and all but I'll see. I have complete faith in my PS but I just love Dr Pousti's reviews and results.

Another consult tomorrow

Seeing my PS tomorrow afternoon to see about going bigger! Hoping for a higher profile and at least 600cc.. We'll see.. Posting a couple wish pics

Wish pics (again)

Forget to attach,,, ugh
hey my huskies how did the apt with the doc go? did you ever get with pousti? what did he say?
Reply
I did talk to Dr Pousti and it would be $9500 plus the cost to travel. There is no way I can afford that unfortunately. My PS asked what cup size I wanted to stay at,, I said DD which I can wear now (but they DON'T look DD) do then he said stick to push-ups LOL! But if I'm ok going to a night cup size it was no problem and he will do it. I mostly want more cleavage and a little projection,, so he said he would start at 575cc and go from there. I need the mod plus still b/c I need the diameter to get more cleavage. He said he'd do it next week or next year, whenever I was ready .... So I just need to secure the $$ I was quoted $3800 for the redo. As soon as I get the $ I'm going to do it. I'm hoping for November-ish but we will see!!

I hate auto correct,, go up another cup size* not a night cup size!! Jeez

Hi huskies and boobtastic...boobie greed sisters!!! Maybe I should fly over to the usa and we could get a triple deal discount and all get big boobies!! We could even have forte there and give her our smaller implants we don't want. .lol..if only it was that easy!! Wish you girls good luck...im gonna be spying on you to see how it all goes.

question for the redo BA gals

For the ladies that have had a redo... did you find the recovery easier than the original BA? Planning mine in the next couple of months and just trying to figure how much time i need off this time. My original recovery was pretty easy and uneventful....hoping for the same!!
Well, I can answer that question soon. My revision is on Tuesday the 10th. I go back to work the 15th so hoping its not too bad...glad I work with some helpful people though :) If I feel too bad I will have to call off or find a replacement though and return to work my next scheduled day of the 18th...

Girl, you look good now,, with the redo, you will look awesome!!! I can't wait to see and hear about your recovery. Yo are going HP now right?? What brand are you getting (natrelle, mentor)? My PSD uses natrelle and I'm so damn wide he wants to stay w/ mod plus...... at least for now...we'll see if I can change that! LOL! Good Luck on tuesday! I'll be thinking about you!!

Awe Thanks! Yes, natrelle HP 550R/600L. You can still get a wide diameter but u have to up ur ccs... my implant diameter is going to be wide for my body but I wanted more orojection and its the only way to get that. Side boob and more projection is bigger cup size...hoping for a D this time. I kniw I will for sure get a full C. Oh..I thought my PS said I was a BWD of 13 at my initial consult but my last appt he said he thought I was a 12...the implants I'm getting are like 13.8 or whatever...yay for side boob! Lol. Never cared for it before but now I understand it and want it! Lol I will def update asap on Tuesday so keep a look out ;) surgery is at 7:30...

Just need to vent!!

Can someone tell me why so many girls look big with 300-400cc and I have almost 500cc and they don't look that big?? Am I just that thick that my chest swallows the implants??? I don't get it. I think I got every crap gene available in my family that even plastic surgery can't fix it!!! I'm so frustrated!!! BLAH! Sorry ladies I just need to vent. I can't wait for a revision. Still trying to get the money together but I hope I can book SOON!! I added some new 5 month post op pics and included some incision pics. They healed quite nicely!! My actual nipples are scarred because of the multiple times I've had them pierced. I just took out my last piercings right before surgery. I don't like how they look on bigger boobs.

Not all my pics posted! Ugh!!

Damn iphone
Will you be going in Oct. Pousti?
Reply
No unfortunately not. I just can't afford it. The procedure would be $9500 then I have to figure travel expenses and I have 5 dogs that would need boarding. The boarding alone is $$$$. I will just go to my PS (who is awesome I will say)

Ok I read on a post that you were looking into it. Well Imthink you look wonderful. If its not broke ya know ;) best wishes kiss the doggy s for me I'm a dog lover too!

Kinda random....

So it's a busy night at work and i went into bathroom to pee finally and to check the boobs and I noticed my incisions are reddened and raised!! Is that normal 5 months post op? Especially when they never had been before and have healed really nicely. So weird...
I think you are looking great! Are you still considering a revision?
Reply
Thank you! Yes I want to go a little bigger and get a little more cleavage. Just waiting for the office to call me back with some dates when he is available!

Exciting. ..keep me informed. What. Sizes are you thinking?
Reply

Yup.... This!!!!

Ok so this is a push up bra, squished up, great lighting pic b/c trust me!! They are not this big!!! But I wish they were!! LOL I had to share
I'm in the same boat. I need a revision on my R because it looks like shit, dented, hard, and high, but I don't know if I should jus do both and goo bigger. I'm also a 34dd or 36 d but the reaallllyyyyy sad part is I still fit into most of my 34 c bras which is a real kick the face :( I don't get it either how some girls go up like 3 cup sizes w 300 and we got 500. Grrrr. I'm waiting to talk to my ps at the end of the month to get some pricing. Also I don't even know if I wana use her again.... so many decisions.
Reply
Girl I hear you! I can still wear a 36C which was given to me by a friend... Good luck with your PS. Are you going to talk to some others just to get an idea??
Reply
Could you give me some advise regarding size? I am 125 lbs 5 ft 6 inches and loved the four fifty sizer in the office. It was the tiniest too big for me. I'm flying down to dr hochstein and on the phone consult he said I'm 421, 457, 492 range. If I thought the four fifty sizer was the tiniest bit too small should I go with the 457 or 492? My natural boobies are a little bit spaced out so I want to bring then together just a bit (not touching!!) and have a little side boob. I know that you wish you went a bit bigger. So what would your advise be?

Oct 22

Ok ladies,, booking today for Oct 22 to go a little bigger. I'm excited but also second guessing myself. I keep looking at the 100's of pictures I have and looking in the mirror. I know I'm not completely happy with the size... No denying that. I'm not telling many people about the revision simply b/c I just don't want to hear it. I feel incredibly bad not telling my mom, since I tell her pretty much everything but between spending the money and the fact that she wasn't happy that I got them in the first place... UGH! I know my husband isn't going to be happy but he's knows what good for him so he'll keep his opinions to himself. The thought of recovering again kinda sucks. I mean my first time was not bad at all but I'm all healed and bouncy, can sleep on my side and stomach if I wanted. Not looking forward to not working out and ha ing hard boobs again!! I hope it's quicker the second time.

I'm excited you have your revision date set! I know you've wanted this for several months. From all the reviews I have read, it seems like recovery is easier the second time around for the majority of women. I have that wide "gap" too so I understand your desire for some cleavage without the help of VS! (Are you going to treat yourself again with some more new Coach purses for this surgery?!)  :) Go girl!!

Reply
LOL! I've banned myself from Coach...even though I was buying from the outlet.. when you buy 4 bags at a time its a problem!! I have some bags sitting there still unused... I did put one of them up for auction for one of the animal rescues we volunteer with.... (our passion)

totally boob unrelated

Doing an update soon but I have to share the loves of my life with you. My hubs and I volunteer with a few animal rescues were we live...If I could afford to quit my job and do it full time I would.. Its disgusting here in south Florida how people treat animals..majority are dogs. Really makes me kinda sad to be assoc with the human race sometimes... But the love and kindness of the "animal" people far outweigh the POS's...Here are pics of my 5 babies
awww love your fur babies! i always say i like animals better than people sometimes lol

Ok, date is set

Ok,,,so I was waiting to update when I knew the date was definitely set. I booked it and she emailed me the paperwork last Friday and I couldn't get to a fax right away, plus I had family visiting for the weekend. So I printed the paperwork and filled it out and took pics of it and my credit card for deposit and emailed to them. I sent like 4 emails and left 2 messages to make sure they got it but I never heard from them. So I finally got ahold of them this morning. A little confusion b/c they had gotten my credit card but it's still under my maiden name so they weren't sure who it was for. Any whooooo... I am all set! Pre-op (again) on 10/7. I hate the thought of recovering again since they are soft and bouncy now,,but,,if I want bigger I have no choice.

My husband has no idea I've booked. I mentioned a few weeks ago I wanted to and he got all bent out of shape about the $$. First of all,,,,I MAKE THE MONEY!!!! I pay the bills since he gets paid crap. So it's all my money I'm using. I just don't want to hear it so I'll probably tell him the night before pre-op. I do keep making references about doing it and last night he was like "It's your body do what you want" So I think he's getting used to the idea.

I'm also getting BS at work! I requested the time off before the deadline for requests and now they are saying they are not sure... b/c someone else is already on vaca for 3 weeks and we are short staffed... OK it's not MY problem that your unit (i'm a nurse) sucks so bad that everyone keeps leaving. I didn't take any summer vaca and I have the PTO,,,so, NOT MY PROBLEM! I told them I was flying to my familys home (New England) for my mom in laws surgery. I can't tell them I'm having surgery b/c then they make you get cleared thru employee health and I have no time for that BS. Plus I'm not telling many people about the redo cuz I'm so sick of hearing.."NO, you don't need to, you're big enough" I did compromise and instead of requesting 5 pto days (almost 2 weeks off,,,I work 3 12h shifts a week on nights) I'm only requesting 2 pto days now. I had to request an afternoon surgery time since now I have to work the night before.

I keep taking boob pics from different angles just to be sure...I feel like i'm rambling on and on ...LOL!

Finally told him!!

Ok so I told my hubs tonight about my revision surgery. He knew it was coming and gave me no flack... Cuz if he did he knows I'd make his life a living hell,, and provably add on a few more procedures just to spite him LOL!! Hey what can I say.. I'm an only child and I always get my way
;-) plus I pay the bills!! I do feel better I told him, now I 'm excited. I do have a good husband,,, I kinda make him sound bad,,LOL but he's not. He supports anything I want. Like I said ,, only child syndrome! LOL
Just something to consider. I have 800cc's of silicone gel in (I started out a 36A and now I'm a 36D) and I look down and see what I guarantee you are seeing, the Grand Canyon that is your chest. Cleavage only when you have the right bra on or when you push them together and sadly after several months they have settled more than expected and you actually liked them when they were new and higher. Just so you know, you won't end up with more cleavage, you will just be more full because the pocket towards your armpit has already been established and even with bigger implants you won't get more cleavage without going the extreme. The only girl I know that has cleavage like I expected has 1,200cc's of saline and is a 34 chest (porn star tits). Just be sure about why you want to go bigger because you'll more than likely go out before you go in. Also, just a side note...if you can afford them, Le Mystere really does make the best bras for augmented breast (that's what they were designed for)...haven't found a bra by any other company that comes close to being as comfortable without wearing my soft, no wire ones. Wishing you luck!
Reply
My PS said he could improve it a little with obviously a wider implant since I'm going bigger, and he will just increase my pocket in the cleavage area. I know it won't be a huge difference but I do also want bigger boobs. I just feel that I'm built like a linebacker and my chest just swallows them up. How are you doing with the 800's?? Do you feel they restrict any activity? 
Reply
LOL, 800cc's of silicone is heavy, that is my biggest complaint. Used to do Yoga, that has been a disaster a few times so I gave up on that for a while. I've sort of had to relearn how to work out. If I could do it all over again, I would have chosen saline as they are considerably lighter. Also, the silicone gel is a lot harder than I expected so I think the saline would have been softer. I look at myself and feel like my body swallowed up 800cc's too, my breasts to me don't seem that large and I still fit in most of my shirts from 'before', which is puzzling to me...apparently my bras were more padded than I thought.

Weird how time flies

So today I am 6 months post op and 20 days pre-op! LOL! I seriously cannot believe how fast this time has gone by. My incisions are perfect and they are soft, squishy and bouncy,,,, only to be hard again in a few weeks... They are perfect except for being just a little too small for me. I hope the second time around healing is quicker!! I think I'm getting juvederm on surgery day also,, for my smile lines,, anyone have any experience with it??
Love reading your story.. As to why some girls can get away with less ccs and be a biggercup? My ps told me it has to do with your aanatomy.. Shoulder width, how tall you are, weight, etc. I'm worried about mine as well. I'm going with 397 cc, starting with an A cup. Hoping that brings me to a D. I like the roundness on top too!
Reply
It depends a lot of current shape and amount of breast tissue as well and over or under the muscle! I drove myself to the point of insanity before my surgery trying to pick a CC size but it was so hard because everyone is so different. On the day of surgery I have my PS my dream pic and he told me we we're on the right track with what we were going with. I woke up very happy and just keep getting happier with them every day!

I got 425 cc and I end up DD.now I need to do redo.I think I end up too big.Find a wish pix and take them to your PS.

Seriously?!?

Can someone tell me why NOW, 7 months post op and 2 weeks pre-op from my revision, I am having nipple sensitivity and soreness? I NEVER had this even once after surgery and it's been going on for the last 3 days.....I don't get it. I've also never in my life have had boob soreness related to my menstrual cycle so I really don't think it's that....SO WEIRD!!!!
Good luck!!!And keep us posted!

Pre-op done

Ok ladies, just saw my PS. He said that since my body seems to swallow the 500's and I want more cleavage and more projection, he is going with 700cc high profile :-) He thought 650 at first but when he examined me he said he would actually rec the 700. He is also going to put some internal sutures b/c he doesn't like how much they move to the sides when I lay down. So I'm payed up, nervous and excited and hubby is having a little hissy fit over the #'s. He just doesn't understand how different the same size looks on different people
Hey girl!!! I'm getting so excited for you. Damn straight about getting the 700cc. ..I was worried that you weren't going big enough when you said you already had 500 and you were only getting 600cc. ..like I said. ..my doc said he doesn't even do less than 100cc for revision as you won't see enough difference. I'm sure that you will be amazed with the 700cc and they'll be fantastic. ..oh im so jealous and I also hate the way my boobs fall into my armpits when I lie down. My right one that I have always felt is a little more to the side than the left really falls out. Now that you're getting sutures down the side..I'm going to demand he do that for me too if he's charging a fortune!!!! Can't wait to see your new boobies!! @@
Reply
I'm really excited! I was always kind of scared of the number 700 but when my PS recommended it I felt better! My husband, not do much, LOL! I also joined just breast implants .com as they have a lot more people with the larger implant sizes than real self. It really really hoes to read all their stories too. Not many seem to regret it and STILL get boob greed! I had moments before my pre op when I started doubting myself but after seeing my PS I feel sooo much better and confident in my decision. I was really happy he mentioned the sutures too b/c I thought mine were going a little to far to the side when lying down. He said some movement is good but I have a little to much! Hope these last 2 weeks go by quick!

I got it!

Woohoo I got my full vacation that I requested for my surgery!! I'll be off starting 10/21 the day before surgery and don't go back til Monday the 4th. So excited as we have a lot planned besides my surgery those 2 weeks! We always have a little block party Halloween night with the neighbors as we hand out candy... Never miss Halloween. It's crazy every year there is this one guy, no one knows who it is, but he alternates every year dressing as Jason from Friday the 13th or Michael Myers from Halloween and wanders the neighborhood (it's a gated community) it's really freaky!! He will be at the end of the street standing under the street light just staring your way and then you turn around and he's gone and then pops up some where else... Totally just like the movie. Scares the crap out of me! Then the Saturday after surgery we have the annual Yappy Hour fundraiser for the animal rescue we volunteer with... Always a good time and tons of doggies!! Anywho.... Well I hope these 2 weeks fly by.. Can't wait for my newest pair of boobies!!
Just gotta say- I hope mine look as great as yours when they d&f! you are rocking those boobs! Good luck with your revision, hope you are up and moving faster than with your 1st BA. Rock those new stripper boobs girl!

Need advice not judgement

I don't want to be judged,, this site is to vent.. I just found out im probably pregnant. That may be wonderful for some people but for me it's the worse thing that could happen. We don't want kids and we are so careful. I'm just disgusted. My surgery is in 2 weeks and I WILL NOT miss it. Has anyone ever been in my position?? I'm 39 and too old for this shit!
Hate to be the bearer of bad news but, my gyno once told me that because of the way home pregnancy tests work, there are no false positives, just false negatives so...if it says positive, it probably is. I have 2 kids but I had them at 25 and 32, would not want to do it at 39 so I understand your frustration. Just do what's right for you and your husband.

I want to thank all of ladies who commented for your support and kind words. It really means a lot to me. I still haven't decided what I doing... I'm thinking things over... I'm terrified.... Of everything!! LOL! I haven't been on here the last 2 days b/c it has been crazy busy at work. Things will be decided in the next week or so and I will keep everyone posted!!
Ive been thinking about you so much. I know you must be such an emotional wreck. I too fell pregnant and is was not planned. I was very young , just turned 21 and I never wanted kids to start with. So I know (well sorta) what you are going through. Its really hard and I hope that whatever you decide that you find peace. I kept the baby all those years ago and went on to have 2 more! But you need to do what is best for you and your hubby. Sending lots of positive vibes and kisses xxx

Postponing to have a baby

Well it's been a few since I've updated. Took some time to think things over. My surgery was already paid for and they told me I could postpone and reschedule when I am ready.... So I've decided to go ahead with the pregnancy. My first u/s is on what would've been my surgery day. I figure things happen for a reason,, even though we weren't planning on kids...I'm 39 and my hubby is 40 so we got lucky I figure... If we had been trying to get pregnant you know it wouldn't have happened. I want to thank all of you ladies who commented.. To hear your stories and the well wishes really helped me so much better about this. I'm actually kinda excited now. I'm only 6 weeks so I don't want to jinx anything. So if you ladies don't mind my story will become a pregnant/revision blog LOL. Like Shelley said...with being pregnant ill be able to try on the bigger size boobs first to see if it's what I really want!! Well guys wish me luck on this crazy journey and I will keep you all posted XOXO
Hey girl...just letting you know I'm thinking of you today the 22nd as today was going to be the d..day!! Just know your decision is an amazing one...you will never regret this. Hugs Shelly xoxo

Hello Ladies!

Hello everyone!! I hope all new and old boobie ladies are feeling and healing well. I have been off for a few weeks. The nausea was killing me!! but I did not throw up at all so I'm super thankful for that,,otherwise I had been really exhausted also....btu I can't complain b/c so many women have morning sickness so much worse than I do! I have also been working a lot of overtime and one of my pups was sick :-( ... I am now 7+ months post op and 10 weeks 5days pregnant. No change in boobs yet from preg and no baby bump YAY!! I have not put on any weight and still working out (when the nausea allows) Something I know all you guys can understand is CONSTIPATION!!!! OMG!!! I think it's the prenatals,,,I went 10 days without going,,I wanted to die!! I broke down and drank a bottle of mag citrate and after that worked I started colace 2x a day,,,and that seems to be working,,Thank god!!!! I had a second U/S on tuesdsay at 10weeks 3days,,,,baby is fine. I'm adding that pic along with a boob pic from this morning. I also had bloodwork done on tuesday to check for chromosomal abnormalities (My hubs has a brother with Down Syndrome and I'm 39) The blood work will also tell us the gender!!!! Results in 2 weeks along with my 12 week u/s,,,cab wait to find out,,,hopefully all the chromosome tests come back negative also... I will keep you all posted and I should be on much more now that I feel better...seems at 10 weeks all my yucky symptoms went away,,,I'm soooo thankful for that
Wow time sure does fly! Cant believe its almost 11wks. Your baby looks perfect and im sure the tests will come back negative. I do still think your boobies look great. Hope the nausea goes quick! Xx

My FB announcement

So I'm posting a pic of the FB announcement of the baby that I just posted. LOL,, it's so perfect for us... All our friends and family know just a few people are still in the dark
For my second pregnancy I went to whole foods and used New Chapter brand of prenatal vit. They have all natural extracts to help with constipation and heart burn. They helped immensely. I never felt sick or heart burn or constipation. I am terrible with constipation in both situations boobs and preg. I blamed the prenatal vitamins for feeling so bad the first pregnancy. I dreaded taking them every day. But my second pregnancy it was never an issue. Give em a try.

It's a.......

Hi ladies! Hope all is well with everyone. Happy Thanksgiving. Well as of today I am 12 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I'm really happy to say I have not gained a single pound yet, I don't even look pregnant!!! I had another U/S this week and baby is perfect so far. Got my tests results back (I'm "advanced maternal age" LOL) and no chromosomal issues like Downs or anything and I'm having a GIRL!!!!! I'm happy! Hubby was a little disappointed LOL,,but still excited. He really wanted a boy b/c there is no one to carry on his family name as his brother has only girls also. I love pink and Barbies so I'm super happy!!! I am so thankful that I have had a super easy pregnancy compared to a lot of women. My only major issue was constipation which is under control now with colace (2x a day,,LOL) I don't even feel pregnant!! Good thing about being "old" and pregnant is I get more u/s and I didn't have to pay extra for the blood work to identify the gender. Boobs are good, although the right one feels like something is sticking into it today for some weird reason. They haven't gotten any bigger yet (from the pregnancy) so I'm still waiting for that to happen!! Hope all you girls are well!!!
Thought of you when I logged onto realself today!!! I hope you are doing very well :)

MIA for way too long!

Hi Ladies!! How is everyone?? I have been MIA for a while now and I'm soo sorry. Hubs lost his job before Xmas and my MIL was diagnosed with rectal ca and I've been working a lot and just got behind. I hope everyone is well! Everything with my pregnancy is fine... 3 months left!!! Hubs found a job and MIL is doing well. Everyone tells me that my boobs are huge (since becoming pregnant) but I really don't see the difference (except in my areolars! They are huge!!) I still fit in my 34DD... So we will see how much they deflate after giving birth! I will update with some boob/belly pics in the next couple of days.
Thanks so much for keeping us in the loop. Congrats on the pregnancy :-)

Thought I was going to read a blog of a gal who got a BA only to end up with boob greed..... like myself! What I ended up reading was better than any of the last 5 books that I've read. Twist turns intrigue angst and love. I'm soo incredibly happy for you. Soo close to having your little girl and if you decide to go bigger after giving birth, having it all! Please keep us all posted. I'm grateful to you for sharing your story. It's a great one!

My little bundle arrived early

Hello Ladies!!!!
It's been a while I hope everyone is doing well!!
I had my little girl on 5/29/14 at 5:42am!! My due date was June 8th. Her name is Averleigh Laken Caroline and she weighed 5lbs 13oz and was 18 3/4in long and she is perfect!! I am so in love!!! I'll tell you how my day went..
It was Wednesday 5/28 and I was getting ready for work (I work nights 7pm-7am) I had just finished a 2hour workout and had just got out of the shower. I had my scrub pants on (I'm a nurse) and walked over to the other side of my bed and bent down to get a shirt. I had a pretty bad cramp and went to stand up and my water broke. So I called work to tell them I wouldn't be in, then I called my friend Judy (she is a L&D RN and was going to be in the delivery with me, she works at a different hospital than where I delivered) It was pretty funny b/c she had texted me that morning at 10am to see if I was in labor yet b/c she wanted a reason to call out of work ...LOL so when I called her at 5:30pm that night she thought I was messing with her! After Judy I called my husband who was at work and then my mom (I live in Fl and she is in RI). Then I had to pack my bag,,,,the baby's bag had been packed but I hadn't started mine yet. I had no pads so I was standing on a towel shuffling around my bedroom so I didn't leak all over everything and when my hubs got home I had to send him to the store to buy pads. I finally got to the hospital around 6:30pm. I got my epidural probably around 10-11pm ish. My other friend Kim (also a L&D RN) had come to be in the delivery with me. At that time I was fully effaced but only dilated to about 1 but babys head had been way down since 32 weeks..they had a hard time checking my dilation b/c her head was in the way. The midwife in my Dr's practice was the one on call that night and the only male Dr in the practice was the one on call covering her should I need a c-sec...and my luck there was a Miami Heat game on that night and so he wouldn't have to come in he wouldn't start the Pit to induce until the am!!!! My nurse told me all the Dr's do it and they get away with it,,,UGH!! So my nurse checked me again at 2am and I was dilated to 2,,,she said she would be back at 3 to check. By that time I was starving b/c all I had had to eat the day before was a banana and some pineapple,,, So I ate a cookie,,, I was supposed to be nothing to eat or drink since getting the epi incase I had to go to the OR... but I'm a nurse and I don't listen LOL!! So when she checked me at 3am I was dilated to 5 and she called the midwife in..by 3:30 when she arrived I was fully dilated and ready to push. I pushed for a little over 2 hours... the first hour was fine but then they shut off the epi and the last 45min was absolute HELL... it hurt like a bitch and I was exhausted ... she was face up so they had been trying to turn her. They all told me I was pushing like a champ.. Kim had one leg, Judy had the other all while face-timing with my mom so she could watch the delivery (the whole 2 hours) and my husband had my neck/head. My husband kept making me laugh during my pushes b/c he kept saying "come on baby, push like you're taking a shit" My biggest fear,,,pooping on the table,,, NEVER HAPPENED!! YAY!!! So when she was finally crowning the midwife said "stop pushing" (WTF?!?) She gowned up and broke down the table...while I sat there silently wishing for her demise,,,(LOL) Then finally she came out!!! I'm thankful the midwife was on b/c of her and also my friends and my nurse,,,I didn't tear or anything!! I had her Thursday morning and was discharged Sat morning and she is in perfect health! I wasn't even discharged with pain med and I can go back to working out as soon as I want to. I'm just waiting for the bleeding to stop (it's been a little over 2 weeks now) b/c I can't workout wearing a big old nasty pad.
I chose not to breast feed but let me tell you,,, the implants and my nipple incisions would not have been an issue! I bent over to get dressed and I was dripping milk on the floor! I was wearing 2 tight sport bras plus my shirt and the drips were still coming thru!! I swear I could of fed China. I'm still leaking as of today!!
My boobs look great,,,I'm hoping they don't shrink too much. I'm going to hold off on the revision for now b/c I do want to try for another baby at the beginning of next year. We are already 40 and I would like her to have a sibling. Hopefully I can use the money I paid for the revision for some botox sessions instead!
So total weight gained was about 17lbs and today I am about 4-5lbs away from my pre preg weight!!! Working out and healthy eating really paid off. I also did not get any stretch marks!
going to post some pics of my sweet girl and some belly boob pics also
Many blessings to you and your family. She is beautiful.
