Lifted and Loaded - Florida, FL
I am 27, no kids but a large amount of weightloss...
First Consult Done and More Confused
However, he said he wants to do 2 separate surgeries 3 months apart. First he would do the implant and then come back and do lift. Said once they drop he will have a better idea of where to place nipple. At first I thought it was for the money, but it seems like what he would charge me is about normal,$7200. I however hate the idea of 2 surgeries. Because I am so tall and my BWD 12.5 he thinks I should do between 400-500cc this is the reason he wants to do 2 surgeries. The weight of such a large implant he says will work very hard on the scars from lift. His standpoint is that he wants it to be perfect. I have my 2nd consult next week, cant wait to hear from him. Now im going back and forth about size. 450 or 500cc
Have you ever had a doctor tell you you needed 2 surgeries because of size?
To be honest, I'm really confused at this point. I want to be a full d or a small dd.
I think I will see a total of 3 docs before I make my choice.
2nd Consult. I'm pretty sure is a no go.
2 doctors have said 500-550 cc would fit me well.
Have any of you done the rice sizers? And if so, did it help?
Date Set. Very Excited
When I went back for my final consult with Dr. Bolling, I tried on the 550cc and it seemed so much smaller than the first time!!! She said that is very normal for people to feel that way.
So I think what I will do it tell him do the best that he thinks between 450-600 cc. He told me that he is not a fan of large boobs, but knows because of my 14.5 BWD I can carry them well.
Do I will add a few pics of my wish boobs to show the size I would like. I need to remember I can always dress them up I guess when I want. What have yalls experiences been like?? I know they say dont get caught up on the CC, but it just seemed like such a difference when I tried them on the 2nd time around.
Long Journey Ahead
One More Sleep
rOund one done
I assume tomorrow will be the hardest, but we will see. I definitely havve some frankenboob right now and will likely will till I have stage two of the surgery. I took a tiny look and even though I haven not had lift yet, I can tell my nipples are higher. yay! Everyone was so nice to me at Thomas Hospital. Wish I could have spoke more with Dr bolling. but I have postop on THrsduay. On size, he used 550. Very excited, now off to drool in neverland zzz...
Firs Day Frankenboob
I am super swollen and def have frankenboob but it's ok with me. This is stage one, so I know things will not be pretty for a while, but it should all be worth it. Here are a few pictures from this morning.
4 Days Pretty Good, Minus A Slip Up
My breast have been doing pretty well. Most of my pain has been in my back and shoulders. A few shooting pains. My first big surprise came when I realized I was given saline implants instead of the original silicone that I wanted. I was very upset at first but now I am seeing it was all a big miscommunication and I know God is in control. I am still trying to figure out how to do the push massage he has asked me to do, I'm just worried I might be doing it wrong. I am really scared about how to sleep. Doing it on my back is killing me. Yesterday was one of my worst days cause I over did it. Went to the doc and dinner. mall with mom. Nearly had a panic attack cause I was hurting. On a side note, Doc wants me to be in a SUPER tight bra until the next surgery. Stage 2. I laid down and took a few pictures and am really excited at how things are looking.
One Month Out
He wants me to start going without a bra for part of the day and to not wear such tight fitting ones when I do wear one. Not dropped enough, but we rather that then not dropping at all. Still looks pretty crazy and will likely look like that till stage 2, but they are getting better everyday. I really hope I dont lose the upper pole fullness, I love that part. I go back next week to see if I need a strap. I hope I don't.
not what we talked about
Last surgery. It's almost like I can't compare them. More update tomorrow. Thanks ladies, y'all make all this so much easier.
Post Op Done
again. I'm having sensation in nipples so that is exciting. They did not do the lipo. He felt that my implant was to close to the location and not worth the risk. However, it seems with overfilling the implant it filled in the little area so it looks better. I'm pretty huge and swollen but I think it's gonna be a good. I have air in my pockets and it is sooooo weird to hear and fill. I hope that goes away soon.
1 month after lift.
One Year Later
As you can see from the pics, my boobs look pretty great. they have definitely fallen more than I would have liked, but they are heavy and this is what gravity does. I'm so glad that Dr. Bolling went with the size he chose because anything smaller would have felt "small" to me. My boobs don't have the fake look, which I would have been fine with, but it is just how my chest is built. They naturally sit low.
Overall, I am VERY happy with my results and have to keep reminding myself that I will never "feel" perfect but believe me, I feel so much better than I? did before.
Dr Bolling and Darlene and the whole team are totally the best
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bolling and his assistant Darlene, in Fairhope. I was very concerned about choosing a surgeon for my 2 operations. Dr Bolling was the first of 3 Doctors I saw. Fromt that time I felt pretty sure it was him, my mother was certain. Thus far(1 week out from 2nd surgery) everything has been great. There was one big hick-up, but it was for the best. He listens to his patients and knows what he needs to do. Really the mistake was just a communication issue. Make sure and visit Dr. Bolling if you are considering PS.
