Hey! I am 19yrs old, 5'3, 120lbs. I started off with a 34B and am now a 34D. I got the 421cc Silicone Teardrop implants- under the muscle, in attempt to look a little natural. My breasts were small to begin with but I think I should have had a better result because they were pretty even and perky. My Implants now look a little uneven (one is droopier than the other) and overall, I guess they are not "bad" looking but I expected a better result. I don't have any cleavage (which i asked for) unless I wear a good bra and Honesty I think they look more like a C than a Full D- without a bra.
I heard recently that Teardrops are not recommended for Implants bigger than 400cc because gravity will naturally bring them down anyway so MOD+ or HP would be better.
I definately do want a re-do soon. I am considering the same PS, since they do offer a huge discount for re-do's, but I am a little scared that I wont get the result I want. It has also been 9months since my surgery and my scars are still VERY visible and pink. I should have gone through the crease and NOT the nipple. I regret messing with the nipple and hope it will heal well soon! The crease would have hid the scar pretty well since I have larger implants. I hope to go up to 500cc and do either MOD+ or HP to make them look perky but still soft.
Overall, I do have to say they look great in a good bra and clothing. I like them better than my little B's lol. And I have gotten many compliments about how soft and natural looking they are. I guess I want more cleavage because I like to wear skimpy little bikinis or dressy shirts when I go out sometimes that cant be worn with a bra.. I dont regret the surgey, just wish we would have gotten it right the first time. The pain was bad as soon as I woke up from the surgery and it hurt the first few days to sit up from bed, etc but after a few days it wasnt as bad.
Just a little update- I did NOT get the Teardrop...

My Doctor: Leonard Hochstein, MD
I have been researching different types of Implants and Plastic Surgeons for about 2yrs before I was able to finally get my breasts done. I was excited when I found Dr. Hochstein online. He seemed like the perfect Doc on paper & Dr. Hochstein was friendly in person. We discussed a few different things, but by the end I still was not sure what I wanted so I thought I'd obviously leave it up to him- the Pro. I had no doubt about him until AFTER surgery.. My nipple scars were looking horrible.. my right breast had "bottomed out". I looked like I had saggy breasts! I am an average weight female, no kids.. I had small but perky boobs to begin with. I dont understand how they came out so horrible! The scars were thick and red up until I got my re-do with a different doc 2 years after Hochstein did my first Breast Augmentation. I was embarrassed to show my breasts to anyone because of the horrible scars. I wish I would have had a better experience with him.. it would have saved me the embarrassment/suffering and saved the $8500 that had to be paid to another doctor to fix my scars and bottoming out with an internal bra. Overall, Dr Hochstein and his staff are very friendly people. Friendly is nice, but I was there for a good boob job which I did not get. This is my 100% honest opinion about the work I received.. I would not recommend him to any of my friends... Wish they had "stars" to judge the actual work I received and not just the process.
