Well as you can tell by the title, I feel that I have slim to no breast tissue. It's become much more evident after my second kid. I'm 29 y/o, 5'3-4" (rounding up) and I usually weigh120lb but recently have slimmed down to about 115lb. I think its because I haven't been able to work out and keep on my muscle and also b/c of my hectic routines as of late. I am a former athlete and have kept a reasonably athletic build and was fine with my athletic boobs which were a 32A, but now its come to a point where I cannot fill any of my pre-baby bras (my A cup bras?!?!). I'm tired of using those self adhering "chicken-cutlets" as I call them in my strapless dresses, lol.
I was planning on getting a BA about 4 years ago, and had set up everything, to then find out that I was pregnant! Needless to say it didn't happen then and now that my husband and I have decided that two children are enough, I'm now scheduled for the surgery 4 yrs later :). I've been reading many posts by the women on this site and have decided to join in now that my date is so close. I'm getting my BA this week 12/20 and getting excited but I am still hesitant on size. I told the doctor I wanted a full C small D and he recommended 400cc silicone as the starting point and going down or up by 50cc. But for some reason 475cc is in my head and I am pretty sure I won't go smaller than that; but I'm wondering whether another 25cc and topping off to 500cc would make a difference. Everyone says I may regret not going larger, and that it will weigh on me but I don't know...will 25cc make that much of a difference?
Everything is speeding by, I need to make sure I...

Still need to talk with my PS on whether we will go with high profile or moderate plus, I'm leaning towards moderate plus, because my original goal was a natural larger breast, my sis on the other hand wanted a more false look so got the larger size and high profiles, but hey...to each their own. I'm also just worried about my 2 kids, 3yrs and 1yr. old. Lifting and picking them up, esp. to un/load in the car seats is going to be challenging, still trying to find a way around that one. I love playing, wrestling, dancing and acting just plain silly with them...I really hope I can recover quick enough that I can continue on with that!
On a side note I went out with the girls last night, and boy did I want that cocktail(s), lol but stuck to water don't want to give my body a reason to start giving me trouble 2 days out from surgery. I'll probably post a few picts tonight..Anyways...we'll see if that list gets written tonight...or early tomorrow morning before I have to hit the road. Ttyl.
Ok, so today is the big day, just sitting here on...

- Day of treatment
I have pretty good mobility with my arms, but I couldn't twist off the caps to my meds, had my friend help me with that. Speedbumps and potholes aren't fun either (I found this out today, lol). My friends and I drive back home tomorrow (4hrs away), so I hope we can avoid those at all cost :(. I'm eating normally, just has a slice of pizza so I'm happy I can tolerate normal foods. I have a feeling I will definitely have morning boob but my tolerance for pain is pretty good.
I hope all my 12/20 BA girls are holding strong and recovering well. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask, I'll try my best to answer.
Good Evening everyone, I am doing very well to say...

The swelling near the top of my breasts is decreasing little by little and overall these boobies are not getting in the way at all (just an FYI, if any of the more active girls are concerned I would encourage a full C to small D size) to still feel sexy and not worry about the heavy bounce if you were to work out. I'm not sure that after all my swelling dies down and my implants settle if I'd measure as a small D, I have a feeling I'm a very healthy C, but I don't really care at this point, cuz like I said before and what I keep telling myself, some sexy bra and panties can up the "WOW" factor any day of the week, haha and I can look like any D cup/well endowed woman if need be, lol in any outfit just gotta know how to work it, know what i'm saying, :-P
These badboys right here are just what I need, the Dr. said 400cc on the day of my surgery but my gut said 425cc so I decided to go with my gut! Not sure if the brand matters but some of you ladies have inquired, I went with the 425cc High profile Naturelle silicone in each (the dr. said I had decent symmetry). The incision was under the breast crease. The steri strips are still on until I see the Dr. again on the 4th of January, until then I've been told to use a hair dryer set on low and just blow dry them after I get out of the shower.
Because I've gone from a 32AA to a C/D? so quickly, I've chosen to rub Palmer's tummy butter on my breasts every day, it's what I used for both of my pregnancies and it helped me avoid stomach and breast stretch marks throughout pregancy and breastfeeding (when my weight and breasts ballooned up to a D-DD). But I'm sure everyone has their own remedies for that sort of thing, so find what's best for you :) I'll update the photos as progress continues.
Anywho, I guess I'm done rambling on for the night. Like always, if you have any questions let me know. Ttyl, and have a safe and happy holiday!
Well they are softening up now, and the zipper...

I'm left handed and noticed my L to be a little more "plump" and softer and slightly larger than the R, and it's nipple sensitivity is driving me crazy...I did something really dumb that I will not recommend for any to follow. In an attempt to prevent chafing, irriation, etc. I placed a bandaid on my nipple, when I removed the bandaid at the end of the day, the skin under the adhesive part of the bandage had become aggravated and some was actually pulled off...OUCH! Need I say this is a very uncomfortable mistake to make...on one hand I'm supposed to wear a bra, on the other, my wounds need air to begin to scab and heal....the bras were continuing to delay the process. That was such a DOH! moment, lol and I can't wait to hear what my PS has to say :(.
Other breast experiences...I believe I've developed Mondor's disease, which I've read is a condition that resolves eventually (thank goodness!) I'll try to confirm that tomorrow, but in the meantime I'm not really concerned, but it has caused an uncomfortable pull when I raise my arms above armpit level, its a little more severe in the R breast. I've been massaging and adding light heat to the area and it helps loosen it a little afterwards but the bands are still visible. Overall my healing is going well, I still have on my steri-strips because I'm not sure if I was to remove them or keep them on till the 2 wk appt, I haven't taken a pain pill in over a week. After I stopped the meds, I noticed my "inclined" sleep position suddenly became so uncomfortable, and I find myself shifing in my sleep onto my back and on my side (which bra-less I'm not sure it is a good thing or not, lol).
The semi-annual VS sale began a few days ago :), I went in to see what size I may be and found out at the moment i'm a VS 32DD 34D-DD, which was surprising for me I thought I was a full C. Needless to say, my husband was happy to just hear the "D" word, lol. They look good in the bras I tried, but to tell the truth, I'd like to wait before I start spending a good amount of $ on VS bras until they have finally settled.
Well I'll try to update tomorrow after the appt, I'm hoping to hear from my PS that I have nothing to worry about. Have a great night/day and ttyl.
Well I had my surgery on 12/20, so that makes just...

My husband has said he's noticed a posture change, I now walk with my shoulders more back, girls out :P I'm not doing it on purpose, but I feel that when I keep good posture my bras are more supportive and tight feeling. Plus it makes me feel taller, haha. But boob life is great! Clothes fit great and I get to squeeze them whenever I want, lol. Anywho...hope evereyone is enjoying their additions and best of luck to those awaiting their big day. I'll be adding pictures tomorrow, ttyl.
