Hi All! I am sharing my journey with you. At the ripe age of 19, I decided that I wanted big breasts, as I was always a gymnast and did not develop past an A cup. I wanted to feel beautiful and get attention! Well, I sure got my wish. For the past 8 years I have had 750cc saline implants, overfilled to 850cc implants, placed behind the muscle. With the weight and size of the implant and 8 years of gravity my breasts have fallen into my armpits more than I would like and have dropped. ALSO, at this point in my life, I feel that my big ole boobies are not my personality anymore as I am about to be married and will start having children in the next few years.
As my 27th birthday is approaching on Friday, I have decided to treat myself to a complete revision and place smaller implants. I currently am 5'2" and a very muscular 130lbs (size 3). I will be switching from saline to silicone and be reducing my implants by 200-250cc (will be doing sizers in surgery). We have 4 pairs of implants ordered currently: 600 mod plus, 650 mod plus, 600 high profile and 650 high profile. I will be letting my surgeon determine what she feels is the best for what I am looking to accomplish.
She will start the pocket revision and implant exchange through my original incision site (areola) and if she feels that my results will be much better through my inframmory fold, then she will switch to the new incision. RESULTS are much more important to me then my minimal scaring in a place where no one will ever see anyways. My surgery is scheduled for TOMORROW. I am very excited and plan to share my experience with everyone. As I have tried to research peoples experiences with going smaller with implants, it was hard and near impossible to find before and after photos or patient experiences.
This review is more for anyone thinking of this surgery. I do not have many questions, as I am completely comfortable with my surgeon giving me the best results and knowing exactly what I want and making the decision and last minute changes to achieve my desired results.
Why am I so open to letting my surgeon make these decisions you ask? That is because my surgeon is also my employer as I am the patient coordinator for my plastic surgeon. I am happy and honored to be able to share my experience with everyone on realself. Please feel free to ask questions to either my or my surgeon. She is a realself Top Contributing surgeon and once I verify with realself that I am okay to release her information as a patient but also an employee I will release her name. I will provide more details and follow up reviews after my surgery and into my recovery process.
