Lovin my new leading ladies!!!

I am a 29 yr old happily married mother of 7 and 3...

I am a 29 yr old happily married mother of 7 and 3 yr olds. I am 5'6" and weigh about 168...I am about 10 or so lbs higher than my average weight thanks to Zoloft : /. I'm now off that and working on gradually losing 10 lbs maybe...I kind of like my curves now. Anyway. I am getting my first BA wth minor lift on April 30th!!!! I've wanted this since I was 17 but wanted to wait til after I had kids. I don't want Huuuge breasts just natural nice busty ones that would go wth my body frame. I'm hoping for a large C cup...even if little bigger that'd be ok:). Is anyone the same size or close to my size who did 360cc saline? And are u happy wth them? I'm so crazy excited!!


I'm 5'7 and I weigh 171lbs and I got 440cc silicone gummy bears under the muscle and they came out beautifully! I'm. 4 weeks post op and I'm a large C or a D depending on the bra. I love them. They look so natural and they fit me perfectly! My doctor is an artist!

Ok so I just got off the phone wth my PS and I...

Ok so I just got off the phone wth my PS and I told him how I questioned him saying 360 cc on my right and little less on my right. But I don't want any less than 360 and I'm afraid when I lose this 10 to 15 lbs I want to lose that I will lose volume because when I lose weight my breasts are always the first thing to deflate!!! So...I decided to up it to 390cc on right and slightly less on left. I know it's only 2 TB difference but does anyone think this will be too big for my frame? Currently 5'6" and 166 lbs now :) I am not top heavy it mainly settled in my behind and hips...yeah I got a booty goin on lol. Btw this sucks buying pants when the stomach fits perfect but my a** and hips are too tight!!! They need to make more jeans for women wth small wastes but wide hips lol. Anyway...I want to lose 10 lbs after surgery wth time and I'm hoping going slightly bigger will help me not lose as much volume. Thanks everyone!!!! I'm so excited!!!!!!

Update: So it's getting down to the wire :). I'm so freakin excited!!!  I was going to go wth 360 cc saline but have decided wth 390 saline.  These days are dragging!!  So do we wear anything other than the gown during surgery? (Our panties,socks) I put a fresh coat of color on my toes in case no socks lol. How long after til we can have sex? (I have an anxious hubby lmao) and tanning? Spray tan. At what point can we just start wearing a sports bra no dressings etc. and that band we have to wear...how long for that lovely thing?lol. I keep looking at my current twins in the mirror...kind of a bittersweet goodbye lol. I really really hope they turn out how I've dreamt of them looking!! I will post after pics soon!! Good Luck to all of u who have surgery tomorrow...I'm jealous lol. :) hope all goes well!


Hey I went to Dr Yarinsky for my nose job!! He did a great job at that but decided to go to someone else for my breasts ...good luck you must be so excited!!

Hi~ First of all we have the same surgery date, so Good luck! I'll be checking in at some point to see how you are doing :-) I am 5'4" and 125 lbs. Today is my pre-op appointment and will decide for sure on the size. I originally was thinking 360 to 375 but am now leaning more towards 400-420 and most likely HP (mentor, silicone, under the muscle). But will see what the DR. says today. I've been reading peoples stories on this site for quite awhile and there are A LOT of women that wish they would have gone bigger, so I guess when in doubt go a little bigger, that's how I'm looking at it! And sense you are wanting to lose more weight I think you are right about losing more volume in your breast. Keep in touch and hope all goes well :-)

Thanks!! Omg isn't this week dragging lol the month flew by but I swear this last week is makin up for it haha. How are the CC's of silicone compared to CC's of saline? Are they different ? Like is a 400cc silicone the same as 400cc saline? Lol I initially wanted silicone the gummy bear implants but after hearing about "slow leaks" and having to get an MRI done every year Out of pocket it ultimately made me decide to go saline but I totally respect people who get silicone it's all matter of preference. Good luck wth yours and I hope urs turn out great!! We'll both have to post after pics lol and see how recovery is goin!!

Yay omg I have breasts now!! Lol. I had such...

Yay omg I have breasts now!! Lol. I had such anxiety the day before but as soon as I walked into the office my day of surgery April 30 2013, the entire staff calmed my nerves and are so unbelievably sweet. Dr Yarinsky is truly a master at what he does... I'm only one day PO and have no bruising no major pain and my breasts are gorgeous and everything I imagined they would be! I ended up getting moderate profile textured saline- 370 on the left and 390 on the right. I will post more pics when I'm a little more healed. Soooo happy and feel so much more confident in my self. This was on my list of things I've always wanted ..I found my amazing hubby,have 2 beautiful healthy kids and we just bought our new house almost 2 yea ago and my hubby got a great job as a county CO (5 yrs ago) and I've been wth my job for almost 7 yrs. well the pain meds /muscle relaxers are kicking lol nap time ( another bonus of having a BA...as most of u moms know we NEVER get to take naps lol. Hope everyone who is still healing...good luck and I hope ur as happy as I am:)


So 2nd day post op and I am so sore and tired from these muscle relaxers. I hate this band I have to wear across my chest it makes them feel worse....all the pressure and digging in my armpits. But I know it's helping to push my girls down in their final resting place lol. I barely have any bruising and my stitches are healing nicely. How long did the discomfort last for u other ladies out there? I will be alone wth my kids and dog this Saturday and Sunday and my daughter is potty training so we r using our padded doggy stairs for her to reach the toilet as opposed to me lifting her up. I've been out walkin in the yard and in the store...I listen to my body if I'm tired or sore and rest. I switched from the dilaudid to extra strength Tylenol but now I'm wondering if I shld go back to the dilaudid but If I do I'll need to take co lace wth it because I'm alrdy so bound up and bloated and lucky little me started my menstrl cycle the day after surgery lol.

How's everything going
Hi:). I am def sore and tender...kinda feels like how my breast felt after pregnancy when my milk came in. Lots of pressure but ohhhh so worth it. When i came home ysterday I peeked at them from the top of the bra and they didn't look big enough for me at all...but today at my PO visit they took the bra and dressings off and I got to look at them in the mirror I was amazed. They look exactly how my pictured them!! I love them so much. The pain killers and muscle relaxer make me loopy and tired and its really hard to get up from a sitting or laying position. Hard to take deep breaths but definitely worth it all. Hope u r doin well also!

So I'm now almost 2 weeks post op and feeling...

So I'm now almost 2 weeks post op and feeling great. Still a little tender and tight. My left nipple never lost sensation but still waiting for right one to come back lol. I feel like they are dropping into place nicely. My back still bothers me a little from sleeping elevated for so long. I get my sutures out on the 20th. I want to go tanning so bad...versa spray tan ... How long did u ladies wait til u went tanning? Also I've heard conflicting information in regards to weight loss after BA. Has anyone lost 10-20 lbs after BA and have bad results? I heard they will look smaller after weight loss but then I also heard they will look bigger after weight loss wth the implants in proportion to a smaller frame. I had a minor lift done wth my BA so I'm not too worried about sagging.


They look amazing!! Congrats!

Hi Jarrodsgirl! OMG, your new girls look GREAT.. I am 3 weeks post op today. I have 360cc(R) & 390cc (L), pretty close to yours! With similar stats. I noticed my girls dont look as full as yours?! PLEASE take a look at my pics! I would REALLY appreciate your opinion... Thanks:)

Hi:). I think you had some more breast tissue than I did initially. Looking at ur before pics and then the after there is a noticeable difference...ur girls are bigger:). I felt the same way about mine at first and everyone heals at a different rate and some drop sooner than others do. It depends on if u went over or under the muscle. I went under the muscle, areola incision because I also had a minor lift done, I didn't have to get the lift but my nipples were aiming at the floor lol and he suggested the best result would be wth a minor lift. So I decided to go for it. He took a crescent shaped chunk of skin from above each nipple to lift the nipple up to mid breast. Now not everyone needs a lift or wants a lift or can afford to tack on a lift and some woman prefer the more natural look of the nipples...mine u can obviously tell the nipple placement is not natural lol. But only me,my hubby and the dr truly know when they see them...and well now everyone who reads this haha. No worries!! Ur girls will drop and fluff. My dr told me not to start judging until at least 6 weeks and even then it's only about 90% healed. Once they drop down and fill out and if u go back and look at these pics they will look different! No worries ur girls are great and can only get better :)

3 weeks post op today!!

Soo I am 3 weeks Post op today and still loving my new accessories:-). I got my sutures out 2 days ago and they are looking better everyday...dropping more and getting softer. My right one still tightens up/muscle spasms in the morning when I first wake up but other than that my left one is defnatly healing faster. I can't wait to get my 6 week go Ahead to go bra shopping!! I am halfway there!! This medical bra does absolutely nothing for cleavage and shows the 24 the nip-ons I seem to have lately lmao!! So I took the pad liners out of one of my old bikinis and put them in my bra to hide my nips haha. I want to go back to my Versa Spray Tan soooo bad:-( but I have to wait couple weeks. When he took my sutures out one of the dissolvable stitches was pokin out also so he snipped that and it left a tiny open spot on my areola about the size of a marker tip so I have to put my antibiotic cream on it for 3 days then no more cream or gauze pads or hibiclens (surgical soap)...but still stuck wth this fugly bra and strap for another 3 weeks haha...hopefully it flies as fast as these 3 weeks have. June 11th come FAST!! Victoria's Secret is calling my name!!! So another thing...I looked up how to properly measure ur bra size and I've been wearing the wrong size all these years!!! When I measure underneath my breasts and around to my back its 31" which means I technically should be wearing a 32 bra and all these pre boob years I wore a 34B. So I at least know im a 32 ...cup size I will find out in 3 weeks lol. My PS even told me that my implants will continue to drop up to six months post op and round out more. Does anyone have 2-4 week post op pics and 6 month post op pics so I can see how much of a difference there really will be? Thanks !!! :-)

4 weeks post op

I'm kind of wishing I went a little bigger...I was goin to get 360CC and so glad I upped it to 390CC but either I'm getting use to them already or they r just settling more and this granny medical bra is not very sexy lol. I love the way they look in bikini tops but wondering how they will look in a good VS bra. Now I've never bought bras at VS before...never had any reason to ...had nothing to show off before. So any ladies out there have any advice on which VS bra I should try to enhance some nice cleavage? :-). Thanks ladies!!!


you look great!! I also never shopped at VS, hope you find some nice bras and let us know!..

These things get better by the day!!! :-)

So I'm 2 months after my BA and they are still dropping more and rounding out at the bottoms. I am so mad at myself for judging them so soon...they seriously only get better wth time haha up to 6 months to totally drop my doc said so no worries to u pre judging newbies out there...they get better :-). Bought a ton of new bikinis and I am using scar guard on my scars (upper areola) and its working pretty well. I am back to tanning...mainly spray tan but cover my scars if I go in a bed briefly. I still have not got sensation back in my right nipple but my left one is super lol. Even if I don't get it back in my right....it was so worth it!! Hope all the new boobies out there are makin their mommas happy lol


They look amazing!!
