Hey ladies! I am going for my BA surgery Friday at...

Hey ladies! I am going for my BA surgery Friday at 10:15, yay! I'm 24 and I have always had smaller breasts. I have an 11 month old that I breastfed until 8 months so having that full feeling from milk and then nothing is depressing!! I feel so deflated! Anyways, I don't feel prepared for Friday but the way the nurse is talking, everything is fine, I don't need to do anything extra. Any advice on ways to prepare? I decided on saline, under the muscle. My implants can be overfilled to 390cc but I doubt I will go that big. I am 5'5 and 120lbs. I have a small frame and I am VERY active. Being off for several weeks is going to kill me! I will be posting a picture to see what everyone thinks because I am trying to decide my cc's. I was thinking 350-360cc but now I'm afraid they won't be big enough! I want to be able to tell a difference but I don't want to be top heavy, too big and look odd. I also don't want it to affect my exercise either. I've considered even 375cc but that's as far as I'll go. Any recommendations on sizing with the height and weight stats I've given? Thanks! Any advice is great, pre-op, post-op.. if you know it, tell me! THANKS!`

Thanks! I feel like my right side sags a little more than my left. When they settled an swelling goes down, will that change and even out? Or should I be worried?

Congrats! You look great! I think you will be really happy with that size after everything has settled & dropped. I'm 5' 5" 118lb & I got 400cc silicone under muscle. I'll be 6 weeks post op on Wednesday, I'm really happy with how they are looking now! Take care!

I wouldn't worry, they don't usually drop at quite the same speed, but they'll even out. In my pics you can see that my left dropped fasted, but they've evened out now. It did take about 4 weeks though, im not sure if it takes that long for everyone. I'll probably update my pics after I go bra shopping Friday :) They're even & looking how I had hoped now :)

Okay, great. That makes me feel better, I love the size now but they are pretty high so I think it will be better once they dropped and form more of a round shape too.

It's been 3 days and I feel great! I've been groggy due to the medicine but just sore now. They ended up going 390cc is left and 360cc on right so I like them. I think they will be perfect once I can see them in a regular bra and they've dropped. They seem to be pretty high up on my chest, when they drop, that will change right? Thanks!
