I've always wanted perkier breasts. Even as a teenager I wasn't happy with the way I looked. I've considered this procedure for many years but I didn't want a lollipop or anchor scar. After many years of searching, I've found Dr. Horndeski and I've decided to take the plunge! I'm excited and nervous...but I feel he is the best man for the job!

I'm concerned about some of the pleating and areolas I am seeing from the mini UBL and with being in Canada, I'm also concerned about the post-Op care I may need. Still doing my research and have gone back to the drawing board a little. If anyone has any insights, would be great to hear them. Thanks to the community for the photos and reviews - they are SO helpful when making such a big decision!
Going for full anchor and augment
I've decided to stick with the more traditional method of breast list surgery - with being in Canada, I don't want to travel to the States for the Horndeski procedure. Also, I like the appearance of the traditional lift and augment better - I'm not worried about the scars because they do fade and I scar and heal really well. Still haven't booked yet - but once I do, I'll let you all know and will post before and afters.
Pics added - surgery coming right up
Finally got the nerve to post some pictures. They actually look worse in the photos! Anyways, the countdown is on and I'm excited. I'll be getting the full anchor lift with 277 cc silicone implants below the muscle. I have another pre-op consult coming up in 2 weeks to make sure and a bunch of questions. I don't want to go bigger, I just want them to look perky and normal.
Currently I'm a 34DD (saggy obviously). I am 5'6 and weigh 140 (its been a long summer) but normally I'm around 134. I'm back on a healthy diet to try and get back there. My PS recommended the full "wise pattern" anchor lift and implants below the muscle for upper pole fullness and he also said that I would need the full anchor if I wanted a the perkiness. He also said that below the muscle was the way to go. I am so looking forward to getting this done!
Well today is the day...for the pre-op anyways. Really excited! I'll let you know what is decided with the implant size. I'm thinking I'm going to stick with the smaller 277s. I tried them on and liked the way they looked...I really don't want to go bigger - even a bit smaller would be OK. So, I'll chat with him. I think ideally I would like to end up a perky D. I don't look at all like a DD now...its just skin I think.
Decided...300 ccs it is!
Well - my PS recommended the 300 cc moderate profile Natrelle silicone implant under the muscle (must confirm) for the look I want - which is basically a perky, full D/DD (same as I am now, but perky). The base of my breast is too small to accommodate much smaller of an implant if I want the lift/size that I'm after. I showed him some wish pics and he in turn showed me where my nipple would be, etc. I'm really excited!! He said it will take several weeks for them to look 'normal'. Initially the implants will be riding high on my chest wall and the lower part of my breast will appear flat until the implant drops in place. We tried on a bunch of different sizers, from 400 down.....the 300s looked good! He reminded me that he would removing some breast tissue so they wouldn't look quite as big as they did with the sizer. OK...so, next update will probably be after Sep 26!!!!!
Bronchitis?!??! FREAKING OUT!!!
So, my son sounds like crap - sounds like bronchitis. Don't know for sure, hubby is going to take him to the clinic today. BUT, I'm feeling some pressure on my chest and I'm totally panicking that I am getting it as well. Which would means its viral - so contagious...and I might get worse - My surgery is on THURSDAY!! What do you think???? Coughing is a big no-no post-op right? And, will they still operate if I've got a chest cold or bronchitis????
3 days....sounds like I should be OK
Well...son seems to be doing better so likely just a cold, not bronchitis. Called the Dr. today and they told me that as long as I don't have an infection or a fever....then I should be good to go. I'm eating superfoods and drinking LOADS of water....wish me luck!
Question for the ladies - how long until you could go out on errands?
Just wondering - if I get surgery on Thurs....do you think I can go out the following Wednesday to get my nails done? When did you start to feel up for going out for an hour or so?
Postponed til nxt week!
Will keep you all posted!!
Done and done!
Got my lift yesterday - I cannot get over the amount of pain I felt yesterday. Today I am starting to come around a little. I can't believe some of the ladies who were able to post photos on day 1...or even write! I will update with pics later but wanted to let you know I'm OK. :)
Day after surgery
I have to wear this for 48 hours and then can remove and shower (scared!).
I am absolutely loving my new girls!! They look GREAT - I feel great and I know once they drop and fluff they will be perfect!!!
Still feeling good. The medication is starting to make me feel a little gross. I either feel amazing or I feel sick so I need to start cutting back. Still really happy with my boobies! They are a bit uneven but I don't care because they still look great and let's face it....it's day 3!!
