well so went to ahve my mamogram done this last week and everythin went fine but in the ultrasound they did they found a bengin cyst which means (not cancer) thank god but my ps told me that i should still have it checked out by a breast specialists jus to make sure nothin interfers w/ my sx? so i have made an appionment w/ the specialsit for this comin week.. i hope to god and pray that nothin comes of it.. and that he says it should be fine and not have to remove anythin maybe just biposy it ... idk.. but im so nervous i dont want my sx to be pushed back for anythin... i guess maybe caus im havin an implant put it i should make sure the cyst is nothin.. when i had my mamo the dr there said just to come back in 6 months and have it checkd agin but by then i would have my implants.. so maybe its alot harder to check w/ thos... :) well i will update agin.. plse pray for me and hope all goes well..:) thanks


It is day 10 and I am actually feeling pretty good :) I went to the gym for the first time this morning, just to walk on the treadmill but it feels good to get some normalcy back in my life!

I know how scared you are about going under, I had those same fears and I have been under before. You really don't even realize you are going under and then before you know it you are awake in recovery!

I was a 42 DD before my weight loss but before surgery but before surgery I was a 38 C. Due to the weight loss I had lost a ton of tissue in my breasts, which you can see if you look at my pictures. She ended up taking me to the top of a C cup (400CC), which seemed like they would look to big but now that I have them, they look natural on my frame. Your doctor will tell you his/her thoughts on size but make sure you are very vocal about what you want too. I looked at pictures and gave her an idea of what I am after. Right now they are very firm and very high but with time they will fall, in fact just in 10 days I have noticed a difference.

hello... yes that is what ive heard about goion under is that u go to slepp nad before u know it ur up in recovery... were u in pain when u woke rite up? so for ur breast u were that a 42 dd wow.. then after weight loss u were a 38 c? see im orginaly a full c cup before i had my daughter.. and ive lost so much tisse since then i mean i still have a little but there so saggy... im afraid of goin to big or to small ... and i know at first they are goin to be so huge but whn they go down from swellin then they will look firmer... lol im stuck between a 400cc and a 375 cc? i know not much diff but really there idk im so confused.. did u have saline or gel? im havin saline ...
Hi there! I'm in Michigan too and just had my surgery December 9. You will go in fine and you will come out fine. I know it is hard not to worry, I was worried too, but it is done and I feel great :)

ok so today i went to my dr appointment with the breast specialists.. and he says that they cyst is def probn nothin to woirry about and if i were not even havin surgery he would tell me jsut to come back in 6 months or so to get a follow up .. but since im having implants he advises that we jsut go ahead and schedule me for a biopsy... :( great... im sure and he is sure that it still isnt anythin but just for peace of mind were gonna do it.. i guess better to be safe than sorry.... rite.. well this is it and after this is all said and done and its all cleared.. no more testing .. ill be ready for surgery... my lab work came bacak great so that was a plus:) now im jsut ready for all of this to be done with.....
like im really tryin to be excited for christmas but i just cant.. idk im so stressed out with evcerythin else in my life with te surgery and the cyst .. and my husband being gone all the time and work.. i feel like a break is all i need sad to say but the only vac break i will get is when im in recovery.... ( i hope) well ladies have amerry christmas.. and for the girls whou have been giving me advice through out all of this im so thankful for u ... i need this site... i never in a million yrs tht there would be anythin like this site.. who woman help[ eachother out... :) i hope to take u along with my journey....

have a merry christmas...:) i will post agian after i have my biopsy....


I wear my garment on and off. Yes, I got the full TT and implants done at the same time. Honestly, having them both done together is the best way to have it done and as long as you stay on schedule with your pain meds, you will be fine. The breasts did bother me more then the tummy but because they are so swollen afterwards I swear they bump everything LOL
  • Reply
You are in some pain which makes taking your pain meds on time so important. The pain isn't really that bad and is very tolerable but you really do need to be on a regular schedule with your pain meds. Yes I was a DD and went down to a C after losing weight, now I am a full C and I love it :) Huge is an understatement LOL Right after you kind of feel like they are right under your chin but within the first few days they fall quite a bit. I have saline and she went with 400CC. At first I thought she went way to big but now that they have had time to settle I think she did use the right size.
  • Reply
ya that is what ive hears.. well glad to here that the pain is tolerable.. i just cant wait the anticipatation is killing well i think im gonna go with a 400 cc i hope that will be but im leaning more toward that way... i guess id rather be a little to big then to small....
thanks for ur advice.... its so are u still havign to wear ur garments? did u also get a tummytuck? im pretty nervpous about that more than the boobs i think... i just hope the scar over time will heal....

Well iam 34 days till surgery:)i cant wait feels...

well iam 34 days till surgery:)i cant wait feels like forever.... my clearence is a go.. i enede up not even gettin my biospy the dr said it was un nessecary to even get it... that the tissue was normal and to jsut f/u in 6 months and even thou i will have my implants by then they said it is ok the will still be able to do an ultrasound.... so thank god for that... i was so worried about that but now i feel better... this site in all honesty is the only thing thatkeeps me goin and postive about having my surgery... i hear all the stories from all u ladies and i hope my recovery goes just as well as ur's and i love all the advice that is given on here.... well i will keep u posted...

thanks jeenbob... yes i will continueing to let u know how iam doing.. i lovet this site and how u get to talk to som many diff women who have expereinced what iam gonna go thru... u guys are all awsome..:)
Hello, I just found your post. I had a lot of problems picking a size. I really think it depends on your frame. I am 5'5" and was 122 lbs before surgery. I was at 34C before surgery and went with a 339cc silicone implant and I had a lift. Now I am a 34D and in some bras a VERY full 34C. I really fretted over what size to pick cause I knew I would be stuck with whatever I chose. It was hard to get answers from others on this subject but I think it is because it is a personal choice and it really depends on your body type.

then after givin my self a little pep talk then im ok..ha ah

well that is all for now... :)


It is so natural to be worried about having surgery. I was scared and so was my husband but now five weeks out, I am so glad that I did it :) In a few weeks you will be recovering and happy you did it too!

You bet I went through an emotional break down; I completely freaked! Though a couple days before the procedure I felt very at ease and the morning of surgery I was not nervous one bit :)

When I got my first set I thought 400 would be bib ,but on me it didn't look big!, some people with 350 cc look huge! I really don't understand it! If u don't mind me being mosey what are your pre surgery stats?
I'm glad your going with the high profile , I am too.

Getting up and down is seriously the worst problem I faced. I spent the first day in bed and then after that I would move back and forth from the couch to the bed. Trust me when I say with each day you notice improvement. Hang in there!

And now the healing begins! I had to keep on my original binder until day 6 and then I moved in to the binder I purchased.

so yes went for my postop visit and she basicaly jsut took the bandage off and looked at everythin and told me to go home and shower.. and that i boy it felt good... i did get a little dizzy and nasueated feelin when i got out of the shower as my husband and sister was dryin me off myabe everythin was goin to fast for me and seeing my body all bruised up and stitched up and cut but it only lasted for a few seconds did seriously think i was gonna pass out.. but it did go awsy..
so yes the soothin water being poured on me was amazing... didnt realize how good a shower could (did any of u feel that ) so she said by monday or tues when im in the shower the strips could be peeled off... and im am now startin my healing... and boy has it been a nitch to get up and down but honetly today im doin better then what i was yesterday so each day does seem to get a little easier... im relly nervous about my husband goin back outta town nex tues and leavin me... it scare me actually.. bu tmy sis does live w me and i know she will be here but she does work durin the day to and im hopein i will be okay while she is gone and my daughete durin the day.. but i gotta get through this...
well my boobies are pretty high and the ps says they will drop and go down alot in the next few weeks... they do look nice thou:) im happy w the outcome so far... and my tummy does look flat just very sore and lookks yucky around the incsion site.. but in time i will start to love it im sure... well that is it for now girls ") gnite yall

well iam now 5 dys out of sx... the last few days wre a blur.. but i cant ell each day does get better then said each day has its good and bad days tho.. lastnite was one of my bad nights.. i was so uncomftorable i couldnt sleep nor find a way to try... my lipo of the flanks was burnin.... and itchy.. i have been takin my meds regulary every 4 1/2 hrs and i dont have a whole lot but my baxk is so damn sore...

im a bit emotinal this mornin caus my husband will be leaving me tomorrow mornin..:( he has to go back to mississippi to go back to work he was only home for a week for my sx:( i wish he didnt have to go back .. my sis does live w us but she works to so im gonna have to try and do this on my own now..i am walkin bymyself now but still very slow... plse god give me the strenght to get thru this bymyself... well tht is it for now... i will updatee later...


Yay;) it goes by fst thts for sur! I took off 3 wks of work I dnt go back till mar 1 I hope ill b good by thn! I'm a medical asst for a foot doctor I dnt do much liftin at all the jus some benidn for xrys but I kno ill hav to b careful doin tht whn I go back! I'm gld ur drainage slowd down! I don't have drain tubes my ps don't use tubes she does wht thy call quiltin stitches! Xtra stitches inside, it's a hard to explain but it less complications w/out the tubes I guess! But my stri strips for the boobs nd tummy r still on! I wnt em off! But I guess thy will fall off in the shower so hopein by the time I see her fridy thy will b off!:)
  • Reply
My nurse said that if all my strips were not off by my appointment Wednesday she would take them off, but then replace them again before I leave. I had a friend that had a tummy tuck without the drains too, I guess each PS has a different opinion.
Lol thts exactly how mine feels, weird isn't it! I rely hate wearing the binder! But I can see how I need to wear it caus of the swelling! I can't wait for my tape to come off so I can see wht the scar is gonna look like nd how drk it is! Its like rippin mu skin the steri strips! Jus on the corner,but tomorrow will be 6 dys for me! So I'm feelin bettr dy by dy! Slowly!

I am so happy to hear you are doing so good! I heard the swelling can be bad for a few months. Hopefully, it will not last too much longer for you.
I am really excited! Only 6 days left, but it feels like a year. LOL

Hi ladies.. well i made it down here to...

hi ladies.. well i made it down here to mississippi.. it was a very long 12 hr dirve.. but my brother in law was sweet enuf to stop every few hrs for me.. lol it wasnt to bad though.. just my back mostly... was a bit uncomftorable... so newys i have a question.. i ordered me some silcone sheetings.. for my tummy tuck scar.. my dr says im healed enuf to go ahead and start applying any scar creams on them or tape.. and im 3 weeks now so everythin so far looks good i have one little sore spot but it htink its where the scab is peeling.. newys so ive heard alot baout this silcone sheeting and they say it works wonders.. any of u have heard it or tried it? i really want to try whatever i can to make it look better.. i mean i knew that it was gonna be yucky.. lol and actually it not to bad jsut dont like the feel of it.. its bumpy and raised.. but def hides under the panty lines... i just want it to smooth out more and flatten it and that is what this silcone sheetin is suppose to help do... so i ordered it it wasnt cheap 100 bcks for 2 ... so i hope it works good... lol
well plse get back to me if u can anyone...:)


mommy of 4 what did u order? the silcone sheeting?
  • Reply
Yes mam! For my boobs and tummy. Hope it does wonders!lol
ya i hope it does to.. lol how does ur tummytuck scar look? i know im erly on but just worries me that it wont flatten.. lol idk im over thinkin it.. my ps sys it will.. just feels and looks werid...

Hi ladies.. well iam 3 weeks goin on 4 weeks this...

hi ladies.. well iam 3 weeks goin on 4 weeks this thurs.. yay.. im movin rite along.. i jsut had my 3 week postyop this past friday and she sys im doin wonderful.. and lookibn relly good... i dont go back and see her for another 3 weeks and by that time i will be @ 6 weeks.. so crzy time flew by so fast..
i actually go back to work this tues mar 1:(
] in some ways i wish i didnt have to but i know i do.. lol and actually it will make the time go by faster to have my husband be home... my little mini vacatio last week when i went to see him was so nice even thou we didnt get to do much because . he worked it was still nice i did nothin but jsut relax:0 and i so needed it caus i know when i go back to work i wil be so tired...

so overall im not havin any pain my tummy looks so good and iam happy with it.. my inscison is slowly buyt surely improving iam now useing what they call silcone sheeting.. (expensive) but i canb tell it will do some wonders... they say results can take up to 3 months and im fine with that.. i jsut want it to fade as much as it possibly can.. i know it will never be 100 perecent gone but i just want it smoother... iy loks good thou.. i just got to keep remindin myself i still erly on with healing....
at times i have some sharp shootin pains but my ps sys that is normal and in time it will go awy.. my boobs have dropped alot and the swellin has gone down alot also.. i love
i am continuin to massage em well doin the breast excerscies... do any of u do em? makes em a little sore but helps alot i can alrdy tell how much softer they are..
well that is it for now ladies..:) i hope everyonwe is doin well...

iam at my 1 month mark.. yay,... tomorrow..
i went back to work this week and it was'nt so bad it did kick my ass today thou.. exaustion kicked in for sure... and my job was not at all about sitting down.. i work in a medical office bringin patient's back to rooms doin xrays and etc.. so i was quit bsy this week,,
but it di feel good to be back to work.. and back on my feet..
so back to the swellin.. it almos feels like i have alot of gas alot of pressure.. do any of u feel the same?:( im very happy with my results but i just hate the swelling.. how long does it last.. and what can i take for it? I did read somewhere there was some over the counter meds u cld take for swelling... does anyone know pof any? iam willin to try whatever...i did take some gas-x... lol which i just now took so we will see if that helps w/ the pressure at all..

so overall iam doing really good,, just cant wait to see my final results over the next few months... i do love the breast.. so crzy to think at first i was like OMG they are huge... and kinda wished i wld of went smaller.. and now im so glad i went as big as i did cause they for sure drop ladies.. for those who are early on they do drop and swelling goes down...
i'am so happy w/ em now and they are getting so much softer where they actually feel natural:)
well ladies plse plse.. let me kno of any advice...

so question ladies.. does it seem like ur pubic area is so swollen and even kinda raised up? weird huh.. idk i asked my ps my last visit if that was normal and she said yes... but weird caus im startin to shave higher thn
just wondering if any of u are expereincing this...:)


Oh my god I feel exactly the same way you do, when I read your lates post about still feeling so swollen I was like oh my god she is reading my mind ! Lol and yes I also feel my pubic area is higher, weird ! I am still wearing my garments and I hated it's looks like I have no butt, because it's one of those that it's for the whole body. I hate not been able to use my regular clothes. I can't wait to be able to use regular clothes. Are you able to sleep good ? Not me I'm still having a hard time sleeping on my back I hate it I hate it, I am only sleeping a couple of hours. Take care and keep in touch

so over all my breast are awsome:) i love em... they have dropped alot in the last 3 months.. they feel so naturall so glad i went with silcone.... u can barely see the scars underneath where the implant was placed:0

the tummy is doin very good to every now and then i still get alot of swelling when i over due myself... rite on the icsion site.... but the scar is fadeing everyday.. im hopeing for it to fade even more.... i use silcone cream every day 3 times a day and i am also usin silcone sheeting... works awsome ladies...

lipo.. hmmmm idk somedays i say i can def tell and others im like nah u cant.. but idk i m sleepin on my side now:) which it took awhile..

pain is less everyday ladies jsut remeber we have to remeber what we put our bodies through.. and in time maybe a yr from now i will feel normal once
