Just in time for my 30th birthday I had my BA done...

Just in time for my 30th birthday I had my BA done and I'm loving the new me! After having spent a total of 36 months breast feeding two kiddos my breasts got very deflated. I went from a 34B pre-kids to a 36DD with both pregnancies. After much research I found my surgeon Dr. DeMars, who was just as sweet as could be. His entire staff were friendly and inviting. I told him what I wanted and so far so good. I ended up getting 440cc Sientra silicone unders. Now I say so far so good only because he gave me what I asked for, accept I'm just now starting to think it's a lot smaller than I realized it would be. I'm not sure how much they will change with my D&F but I hope they get a little more full on the bottom, and more side boob would be nice.

My first four weeks....

Things are going swimmingly over my first four weeks. I've been a little unhappy with the size, wishing they were a little bigger, but loving them more and more everyday!!!

Week 5

I finally realized why my pictures were coming out with a washout color... My two year old out some filter in my photos. Duh! So here's my 5 week update. I think they finally dropped. I love the natural slope. But still wish they were at least 100cc bigger :(

Week 6

Here it is week 6 and I missed my dr appointment. Courtesy of my two year old throwing my phone in the toilet last week. I can't tell if there's a difference from last week to this week, but I think they are done with D&F.

Week 7!

My left boob had bothered me since day one. This one is taking longer to drop has a weird curve at the top. It's still numb on the inside from the nipple to the middle of my breasts. And the scar both sticks out more and is more noticeable. I hope this one eventually catches up to my satisfaction with the right.

Trying to add week 7 photos.

Hope it works this time

Week 8 not notice anymore changes

So here I am week 8 not noticing anymore changes. I know they say 80% of women wear the wrong bra size and after having sized myself and read several articles on how to properly size yourself and being professionally sized I now get it. But it drives me up the wall when people look at me like I'm looney when I tell them I'm now a 32DDD. They say "no way you look like a C cup," or "oh I know that store their cup sizes are big I bet if you went somewhere else you would be sized differently..." It's driving me nuts! I can't believe I'm disappointed and wanting a revision, all because of 80% of the women I meet don't know what appropriate bra sizing is!!! Does anyone else run into this? I get so frustrated trying to explain this to people and having to explain no... It's a 32!!! DDD. God forbid I should tell them I should actually be wearing a 30GG. I might actually make some heads explode! Sorry, I'll get off my soap-box, here's me at 8weeks!!
Portland Plastic Surgeon

Dr. DeMars is fantastic he's a very sincere and humbled dr, I can't say that about most people in his profession. When I first met him he made me feel so comfortable as though I were speaking with an older wiser relative, that I know and trust. Every time we spoke he used powerful statements that made me trust and feel confident in choosing him as my surgeon. He made himself 100% available to me for any questions or concerns that may arise, although I had very few. Dr. DeMars and his entire staff made me feel special everytime I walked into the office, if you choose him you won't be let down! I'm giving an overall rating of 5 stars because I believe the sections I gave 4 stars are pretty standard in the medical field.

5 out of 5 stars Overall rating
5 out of 5 stars Doctor's bedside manner
5 out of 5 stars Answered my questions
5 out of 5 stars After care follow-up
5 out of 5 stars Time spent with me

You look great!! Did you find that you measure your circumference below your breast for the number digits in the band of the bra. Then measure the highest part of your breast and deduct the band number from that ie 36 under breat, 41 around the back and the breast =5" then the cup would be 1"-A, 2"=B, 3"=C, 4"=D, 5"=DD, 6"=DDD!! Girls are haters anyways so as long as you know your boobs I wouldn't worry what people say.. They look like DDD to me but you aren't walking around naked in front of them so they probably aren't getting the full affects like you and RS girls are LOL... You look beautiful.

I read the add 4" or add 5" is outdated and the appropriate way to do it is: measure bust (mine is 38") measure ribcage (mine is 29" but I need to round up to even at 30") and subtract from that. But even if I do that my correct bra sizing would be a 30gg but most people don't carry less than a 34 let alone 32. I went to Victoria secret and they did measure me at a 32DDD. But honestly if I used the outdated add 4 or 5" method that would put me at a 34D. Which a 34" band is way too big for me. So this is what I'm saying the issue is. Most people base their opinion of what a 32DDD is off this preconceived notion that a DDD is huge!!! But on a 32" band it's really not. It is the equivalent to a 36D. So when people here the 3rd D, they flip their heads. But I have to keep reminding myself 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, so I should expect this to be mind-blowingly large to 80% of the women I talk to. Sorry I'm off on a tangent now. But it really has gotten me to the point of feeling the need to prove something to everyone, and since I csnt I just want to a revision. I need to find peace with this!!!

I definitely have to say u r spot on with the bra sizes. I think if u look at your before pics & your 8 wk pics u will see all of the beauty that everyone else is seeing. I know we can be hard on ourselves as women.... I wish I only had the scars u have, how I would love to not have a hole in my areola & the skin where they brought 3 areas of skin together & my areola. But I refuse to let any scars steel my joy, I have a lot of other scars....it's ok it will smooth out. Please stop by my page sometime & check out my pictures. Maybe it will help u feel better about your scars. Xoxoxoxo

Hey babes I love how your results came out but I must ask why do you think you need a revision?
  • Reply
They just aren't as big as I wanted them. I wanted them a little bigger. Like maybe 100cc if I stick with sientra either a 545 or a 585cc HP silicone. Plus no one believes that I'm a 32ddd. I just want to look bigger. I love the way they look, maybe I'll keep them the way I have them. But after I have more babies I'm def going bigger.

I would personally wait until I was finished having babies if it was me. Mine aren't as big as I would of wanted either, but my breast look so much better than they did before & I'm happy :)

Wow he did a beautiful job they both look dropped and even to me. My scars look just like yours. I'll try and post a pic tonight. And my right side has a small knot the nurse said it's the stitch and it takes awhile to dissolve. They look beautiful and that's a good size! I chose the 545cc but originally wanted 400. And would u believe it I was thinking I should have went 600 lol we will ALWAYS want more girl... Good thing is we can upgrade later on! Happy healing you look beautiful!

Yes I plan on doing so. I told my hubby I wanted something for now. We still want more kids. So after I'm done with babies I'm going bigger. But for now in not saggy mama boobs on top anymore. I did love dr DeMars he was so comfortable to be around. I actually have my 6 week follow up today because I kissed it last week. I'm so excited!

You look absolutely fabulous! Your implants look like they are your natural breasts! Isn't silicone amazing, I love how soft they're :) I'm so glad you were able to see that your little one had changed your settings. It looks like you're definitely fluffing :)

Haha I know little ones right. Gosh and this phone has been through so much. She has thrown it in the toilet more times than I can count now.... And yes I looooove silicone. They feel so soft now. I remember the first couple of weeks thinking people were crazy saying they felt soft cuz they were still so firm. But I didn't realize just how much time it would take. I am loving them more and more everyday. Just wish they were 100cc more. But I can wait till I'm done having babies for that. Happy healing to you!

Rt, those little ones are so smart. They're so tech Savy too, even though that probably was a mistake. Our children will have such a technical advantage over those of us who didn't grow up with smartphones & computers. I absolutely love silicone, I'm so glad I waited for the 3rd generation self-adhesive silicone. I'm so glad you're healing well & I look forward to seeing how you look after you're finished with the kiddos. You Look Amazing now & I'm sure you'll fabulous When you're finished Having The Little one's too. I think it's awesome that your husband wanted you to feel good about yourself now & that he supports your desire for a revision later. I hope you're healing well & wish you all the best Xoxoxoxox
