All most time. I'm a 36B looking to get a full D getting nervous looking at all these boobies some are not good.

Rethinking

November 19th is around the corner I'm getting nervous I amazing this for a very long time. It's coming to be real my thoughts are how long will I need to be off work what do I expect from the out come. What would my Kids think, I was talking with my oldest daughter and she states " mom you don't needs that". Lol! I don't want her to think she needs bigger breast. I'm 40 and I just want to be more confident not like I don't have it but more in the way my body looks;) We'll I will put more picks of me later trying to decide what is too big!

Thanks for asking ,had it done and boy I'm still in pain. Today Dec 3rd I got to take the bandage off and so far looking good. I have to wear a drainage bag because a few years ago I had blood clots... This is why I'm still in pain.

Why did you back out last time? The whole process was so intimidating for me, but once I woke up in recovery I was so excited to have gone through it. I'll be updating everyone on my progress. What type/size implants are you interested in? I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

I apologize for not answering did not know how to get to my page. Reason I backed out I was scared! Now I'm a little scared but I want my frame to look good I think my breast are small. My husband thinks I'm good ;) men. I'm having wondering which implants to get I chosen saline but I see a lot of women who are getting silicone. Hmmmmm!

Unfortunately, this website is a little difficult to navigate, but so worth the effort! You have plenty of breast tissue to have good results with saline implants, and they are cheaper than silicone. Read through the reasons that other women chose either silicone or saline implants. I loved how the silicone cohesive gels felt and with my lack of breast tissue to start with, the feel of the implant was most important to me. When it comes to safety, after a lot of research I determined they are about the same. Good luck!

Oh yeah, in response to your Nov 5 post, your post-op results will be an enhancement of your current situation. Your breast direction and shape (unless you get a lift) will be basically the same just bigger. It's tough to imagine, but that's why we all search for other women on RealSelf who had similar pre-op size and shape to compare to. It gives you a better idez what your results might be like.

Bettyjean, good advice! That's what I looked for when I was on the search was women who looked like me before hand. I printed them out and put all of them out on the table without the stats so I could choose a look that I liked without being influenced by cc' amount. I also had my husband choose what he liked to see how close we came to one another. We had 4/5 choices the same!

That's good! I found I was looking at breasts that were slightly larger than what my boyfriend thought I should get, but we were nearly on the same page. My surgeon knew exactly what size was good for me though. If you trust your surgeon and found good before and afters, you'll be so happy with your size. Good luck!
