At this point i have not had my BA done, scheduled for Feb 5. Excited for my new look but nervous about CC. I have 3 children. Im 39 years young and have wanted this for a nnumber of years. Finally at a point where i can afford it and mentally ready for them. Im currently a 34 small B, goal of lg C - sm D. Im 5'4 and weigh 120-125. I have been reading this website to look for support, comments, feelings on the surgery. I plan on the TUBA proceedure, saline implants about 325 cc.

Its the fear of the unknown! I am excited im in my last month of waiting. I would move my date up if i could but i have vacation time already set. Lol
The recovery time for me is dragging but you're right- waiting for the actual surgery date is aggravating! It will be here before you know it!!! See you on the other side! :)

Visited my PS today with the bf. He is much more settled with me getting implants.my PS is awesome, spend at least an hour with us going over every part of the proceedure. I chose to go with 280 cc mod profile filled to 330. That will bring me to a small D,lg C. Yikes its happening and im totally excited about it. Oh im having the TUBA placement.

CC is my fear too. I really need to stop reading the complications tonight. I'm making myself crazy and worried. I'm scheduled for tomorrow!!! We are about the same ht/wt. We'll see what I end up with, but the plan is somewhere between 275 and 350 saline unders.

As you probably know I got silicone and have been massaging them since day 2. They feel very natural and soft and I am 4 weeks post op this Wed. Just take care of yourself, rest and take your meds! ;)))
You do look amazing! I cant wait!

Only 9 more days! Im excited. I dont feel nervous or anxious about the surg. Im just ready! What makes me even more relaxed is my boyfriend is on board too! That means a lot to me! I need to get some shopping done this wee, sports bras and easy foods.

We are the same stats and I am one week post op with 340 & 320 saline unders, crease incision. They are definitely not too big. I think the size is just perfect and don't wish I went bigger or smaller. Once all the swelling goes down, I think they will be exactly what I wanted. You can check out my pics, but I will warn you that my post op pics are not pretty. I had a lot of bruising and swelling. There are pics of me in a cami a couple of days post op. I went back to work today and no one noticed. I'm ok with that. I don't flaunt the girls at work anyway! I know you are getting excited!!!!

I am excited. Choosing a size is difficult when u dont have any idea of how they r going to look on u! But im feeling more and more confident that 330 is going to be enough for me. Thank you for the support

Pink, I was a 36 AA.... I chose style 45 Ultra High profile which was huge projection. I wanted alot of projection. I went with 550cc Ultra high Natrelle gel. I love them, they are not too big and they are not too small. the perfect size. I'm a 36DD or I can go 34 DDD, I know it sounds huge, but its not. My sister in law is a DD and she look way larger then I do. And i'm bigger. so don't go by CC and don't go by bra size... Just tell the PS what size and they will figure it out. Good luck.. : )

Narrowing down to the end of my wait!! Im a little nervous. And excited. How is it hugging and snuggling with boobies? I dont want them in my way lol!

Its crazy we are almost there!
Pink what size did you decide on? If you have a lot of extra skin like me from breast feeding my 2 cents is unless you get a 425 or 450 cc implant you won't be a D. I started off as a deflated B and had some extra skin .. Did 457 ccs and am a D. They are SO easy to cover up and disguise .. Unless I'm in a skin tight shirt or a bikini top you cannot even tell I have has anything done. I have moderate profiles. Good luck!!! :) xoxoxo

Went for my post op today. All looks good. Although he went with 360 mod on both sides vs the 330 like i thought i was getting. He said the smaller was not enough so he went with 360. I also am now wearing a strap to pull these puppies down as they are riding high. He doesnt want me to baby them, move around as much as i can. He also says get off the vicoden and switch to motrin. Yeah well im not completely ready for that!
I do have a burning sensation at times on the outer edges of the breasts, probably where the muscle was "ripped" off per the doc! With the TUBA placement my abs are sore, i yhink more sore than the breasts themselves. Overall so far so good

I didnt sleep all that great lastnight, mostly because of positioning. The pain was not to horrible until about 3 am. Got up took some vicoden, 2, they kicked in really fast. My bf stayed the night and i didnt like the fact i could not snuggle up to him! I love that part. So he will be taking care of me the next few days.

This morning i feel pretty good actually. Im going to try not to take the pain meds and do motrin only. My right side under the breast on tge outside, hurts more than anywhere else. I feel like the meat has been scrapped off the bone, a burning sensation when i move certain ways. Slept wonderfully, on my side, on my stomach with no pain at all. I am a tummy sleeper so that does make me happy! Slept with the strap on too, whuch was fine but i took it off this am to give it a rest, those should be fur lined. Anyway im going to eat a little breakfast and ill post some picks of my BIG GURLS! Yikes

Tomorrow will be one week po. I havent had any pain meds except for motrin since wednesday, po day 1. Thepain has not been at all bad. Sometimes i get a burning sensation on my right breast, on the outer edge. They seem to be settling just fine. They have dropped a tad. They are huge, i live em. I bought a sports bra, large, its kind of tight! Yay me. The clothes i have worn in the past week fit perfectly fine. I had tge TUBA placement and i do have a small bruise at my belly button. I think the entry through the belly button is less painful for recovery, of course im basing this on others comments. Still a wee bit tired at times, taking naps if needed. But overall im doing great. Post visit wednesday afternoon. Get my messaging instructions then.

I don't know but I can't seem to stand up straight. Hunched over. I have zero energy. How long will this last? I'm not that large. Also, I'm bloated. Which sucks because now I look fat. :(

Went for my one week po visit today and everything is looking good. My ps recommends message, so i will begin that process. Made my two month check up appointment. I have a band which he gave me last week, says i should wear it while im home to help push the gurls in place. I hate that band! Moving into sports bras thank god, the material on the surg bra is horrible. Other than that loven them. I do get little pains here and there but nothing terrible. Just pray no for no cc! That ismy biggest fear of this process. Fingers crossed.

I also pray I don't get that! After all this work and positive thinking.

My tummy was bloated too i think it is fluid retention. After my surg for the first few days i was peeing a lot, even having to get up during the night. I have increased my water intake and that seems to help withthe bloat.
Thanks pink, I will start drinking more. :)

First day back to work, not so bad. Im a little sore when i bend forward. Im not sure i like sports bras either. But im setting nicely, sleeping in the band and sleeping on my tummy. Love that. Otherwise all is good in boobieland for me.

I have not had any issues with my breasts at all. They look great and feel very natural to me now. Its like I have always had them. I don't even remember what I looked like before, they are just a part of me.
