Brrrrr Cold Feet !! Am I Doing the Right Thing? - Nicaragua

I am a 38 yr old mother of 3 breast fed for 7 yrs...

I am a 38 yr old mother of 3 breast fed for 7 yrs all together so I'm pretty empty !
Having my surgery in one week ahhhh cold feet !!
250 cc HP silicone unders
I hope this will fill me and give me the fuller look
I'm super sporty so I def don't want jugs !
What do you think ?
This morning I woke up kind of liking my noobs but ... They are not very cute !
I'm tired of wearing training bras :( but do I want to be boobalicious ? Really ??


I am 8 days post op and doing great. I was 34A to start and right now I'm 36C. I got 350CC silicone under the muscle. It was strange seeing myself after but everyday gets better and I'm becoming more confident. Definitely love that I look more feminine.

Oh that's great ! I know I'm gonna be all ahhhhhh this is too big ! But at least I'm going with 250 do you think I will regret not going bigger ? I think this is big enough for me :)
I was afraid of being too big because I am also very active but I've found it's easy to accommodate my look with what I wear. I think you will love your new shape. Best of luck to you and your upcoming surgery.

Ok people spending my last night with no boobs

So tomo is the day !!
Wait why am I doing this ?
I like my no boobs!!
Well maybe not ? Ugh
This is it my husband will take me tomo morning and and bestie will be there at the hosp for support
Actually I'm really quite surprised at how much support I have gotten per my decision to have boobs and not noobs...
I'm pretty relaxed but that MIGHT have something to do with that horse pill I was prescribed to take tonight lol!
I have also realized how horrible my boobs really are it's really depressing I mean really how many boobs can a girl look at !!! God
And really after seeing all the boobs mine are gross ... Oh well they will be much better this time tomo ;)
I hope !? Ahhhhhh
I am 5'3" 106 lbs going with 250 HP mentor silicone unders AND a nipple reduction !
Too many babies sucking the life out of me !
Kind of embarrassed to post these before photos BUT so many others have and I thank them for all the info and help that it has given me !
Wish me luck !!!!


Good Luck! Best Wishes!!! Keep us updated!

It's over :) owwwww

Hi guys well it's done NOT as bad as I thought although my noobs feel like I am engorged with milk and because I had a nipple tuck ;) it feels like I was nursing a very very hungry baby !!! Owwww
So I look huge but I know this is normal BUT my left is a bit more swollen :( I'm sure it's fine as I have read that bit still makes one nervous!
Surgery took 1 hr 50 mins
Thanks for the support will keep you posted


Hi! Blessings! I had misgivings early on because my initial thought was "too big" due to implants riding high after surgery. Do NOT worry too much, if that is what you are thinking up to week 6. I had 350 cc's because my breast tissue warranted such a large implant (or large to me anyway). Now, 3 months later, I love them. And I too am very active, so I worried about size. Now I am very comfortable with the BIG C cup. Good luck, and do not worry too much. Time works wonders.

Thanks !! Yes I feel a bit um super chesty ! But I know this will settle down I hope ! Ahhhhh

Owwwww day 2 post

Hello all well I am day 2 post op and feeling the pain wow I think yesterday was much better although I did stay in the hosp for the first night nothing beats I drugs I guess ....
I feel so right and sore and almost a burn under one of my arms
I still feel like I bench pressed 150 lbs for 3 sets haha
And I'm feeling kind of sad today
My band doesn't fit as I am so small they didn't have a band that fit me so my friend will go to the office today to pick up a tighter one .... Good ?? Or not hmmmmm....
Anyway just a little update - morning boob sucks !
It's like when your breast feeding and the baby over sleeps and you need relief ASAP then you realize there's no baby !
Good luck to all of you I know I won't regret I can't wait to see my final results !!


I am considering 250 to 275 and have same concerns as you. Please keep posting pictures and share your feelings on the size as you recover and heal.

Good bye day 3 good morning day 4

Well this sucks ! I'm not gonna candy coat it I really can't understand how some woman say oh I didn't feel any pain ! That's BS !! Anyway I'm not in as strong drugs as in the U.S. They don't give you drugs like Vicodin or percaset so I'm just on reg mostly over the counter prob why it has been so painful
After my last update the dr called me in to the office as I had that burning under my arm he took out the drains! Thank god ! And I think I felt a little better but dam
Anyway moving along yesterday I made the 3 hr trip home that sucked and supposed to get stitches out on Friday the 27 th I believe...... I am quite unhappy with how high my boobs are I love the size even though I know they will go down a bit but my muscles are so tight and strong they don't want to let go
Please please please tell me this is going to ease off !!!!!!! I don't want to look like this for the rest of my life ! And I'm hating how they look and it makes me super nervous
Anyway thanks for the feedback any comments are super appreciated !!


Hi - I'm looking at 250cc's as well. I'm a small person 120 lbs - but I have a very small rib cage - my under breast measurement is 27 inches. What was your under breast measurement?
  • Reply
Mine is the same but I weigh 110 so not much difference at all
I haven't had my BA yet but from al the thousands of reviews ive read I think they will definitely still drop and fluff. They are just swollen an brand new. Give it some time and they will be amazing :)

Strap from hell

I hate this strap but I'm staring to fall in love with my boobs :)
4 days post op and my dr says wait till 4 months :))
Omg!! When can I burn this strap ?


This is great to have you as a comparison! My husband worried 250 will be too big for me. And one more question, what size marena bra do you have, my nurse told me they are very small sized and to get a 34D! But even the online bra shop agreed. I see yours is done up on the looser hooks?
I believe it is just a small next time I take it off to release the girls I will look and make sure there isn't a size like 34 or whatever :)
Hi mickeynz so yes the mere a bra is a S I'm in Central America so maybe they have different products that they sell here although there are not many small a that I ever see !? Lol

One week yay .... And counting ..... And waiting

Hi people
I don't even know if anyone is even reading this or if it is some type of weird therapy that I make up in my head ? Oh well it helps me !
I have reached week 1 yay! I'm so happy but dammm this is taking so loonnngggg ok it's only been a week I know I know they will drop and fluff blah blah I'm sooooo annoyed I can't workout at least I got my period on time today they say that the surgery can mess up your cycle and I have a wedding in 5 weeks that I carefully planed so that I could go after my aug. Anyway I'm still with the devil strap I can't see my dr saying ohhhh don't worry you never have to wear that thing again!!!! But ya I don't think that will happen he just better not say Well you have to keep it on FOREVER! haha ok not funny
I have gas stuck undertaken ribs in my upper back this happened to me last time I had surgery for something else so ... At least I know I'm not dying or anything and well here are the pics ugh as much as it hurts to keep putting them up but I hope I can help SOMEONE. Bye girls healthy healing :)
Ps does anyone see a difference ?


Thanks heaps for posting - I'm contemplating the same size and finding it hard because not everyone is so tiny in the rib cage and you and me. So keep up the posts! My surgery is booked for 19 November, in Thailand. I get to choose my size the morning of my surgery!! So you can imagine why I'm trying to do as much research before I leave New Zealand. I've made 240 cc rice sizers which are useful, but sometimes seem huge! Anyway - thanks for your posts, they're very helpful :-) And I think you look great.

Thanks for your post. You look great by the way! I'm in the same boat as your before pics in fact they look like they're mine. I've also contemplated a BA but still undecided. Thanks for posting though!

Hi :) well glad I can be of help ! And thanks for the kind words

Stitches out yay... Are these things gonna stay this big ?

Hi all
Well yesterday was day ten and I got my stitches out :) that was easy the nipple reduction that I got well that was not easy as I guess nipples heal fast and so the skin was a bit grown over the stitches and well yeah that hurt but !!! I've had 3 wanted births in someone's house with obviously no drugs so ... Not really that bad ;)
Dr said 11 more days for the devil strap I can handle that almost done ! But I feel like I may not be saying good bye as soon as I would like to ? Are these things even going down !? Dammm well here are a couple update pics and please be honest with your comments ... Don't worry I can handle it ;)

Day 19 coming along

Hi all so just had another post op on Friday today is Sunday was told I have to wear the devil band for 2 more weeks but that that would be it
I notice much swelling has gone down and I'm more comfortable with the size etc ... Getting used to them they are not like that VOOM anymore or maybe I'm used to it although here are some progress pics and I'm super happy with my size !
As they are dropping slightly they seem a bit bigger but not in a out way just a round way if that makes sense .... Happy healing it takes a while !


They look great. Definitely look like the right size for you.

5 week update

Hello everyone
Totally in love with my boobs
Feeling better have most movement back just the pulling as in like pulling a drawer out or twisting off a really right cover is still a little difficult for me
We swimming :)! That was kind of weird freestyle was fine but breast stroke not so much !
Great to start working out again !!! Was getting pretty depressed about that ! Still don't have the clear to do everything but anything is better than nothing your body tells you if your ready anyway

Went to my check up and I don't HAVE to wear the band anymore THANK GOD. so I will now gladly burn it
Good luck girls !!! Here are some photos


Looking more natural day by day. Congratulations. Please post more pics every few weeks or so.
