Breast Augmentation Scheduled for 6/28/12....yikes and Yay! - Texas

Hello all and thank you, Angie for inspiring me to...

Hello all and thank you, Angie for inspiring me to add my story! I honestly never would've thought I would consider a BA. Until after having two kids and having totally different breasts! I went for my consultation in April and it took me a few weeks to finally make the decision to do it! My husband has been extremely supportive. He totally left the ball in my court as far as the decision which I appreciate. I'm 32, 5'2, weigh about 110 pounds and I'm a 32A. Initially I was thinking silicone because I hear it's more similar to breast tissue and looks more natural but I'm nervous about the upkeep and potential risks. I have two friends who have silicone and one with saline and they are all happy with their choice so I'm sure no matter which route I take will be fine. I am small on top and really don't want huge porno boobs, id like them to look natural. I'm honestly debating between 225cc's max 250, under the muscle, inframammary incision. I'm a huge wimp about pain and it's what makes me most nervous! Any advice is appreciated. My friends all tell me it wasn't as bad as they expected but I realize everyone has a different experience! Also, I have a 1 and 2 year old. I have help from family for about 10 days so I'm hopeful for a nice recovery! June 28th is close but it's far when you have time to read about possible complications. Hoping all will be well. Appointment with PS on 5/21, will update after. All comments and advice are appreciated :)

I would go for 275 cause its not big, mine are 350 and very natural looking. Keep in mind you loose 25cc under the muscle. Mine are silicone not saline but. Check my review as later today will upload pics before and after. Maybe you get an idea. We have same height, weight, age and before breast size. Hope i can help :)

I too am having a BA in November!! Yay...but have also been struggling with the size to choose. I am 4'9 and 96 lbs so I had my PS order 225 and 250cc for me to try. I plan to go under the muscle and use silicone...do you loose 25cc when you go under muscle?? I dont want to look ginormous, but I definitely want to look bigger than I do now...anyone's thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated :)!!

I have found that the PS is usually correct. Remember he sees different shapes everyday. He knows best as to what size would be right for you.

Thank you all for the comments and advice! I definitely need to post before pictures. Can't believe it's in less than 4 weeks!!!! Part of me wants to run for it..,,trust the PS but scared to death of the pain when I wake up. I decided on Saline under the muscle but now I'm just between 250 and 275cc's. So hard to make the decision. The appt went well...,PS said minimum of 250 but he thinks 275. I'm just scared of feeling huge.

Please post before pics, so you can get better responses. It's hard to give advice when you don't have a visual reference. Also, you will regret not having a journal of your experience. Seeing the before and then the progressive afters will help calm you on your journey. Plus you will help others coming in behind you! I've personally not met anyone who has regretted their decision. The most important factor is the ps. The outcome will mostly depend on his abilities.

Oh, also depending on your framework, the width of your chest, different styles are available. High profile, round, tear drop, etc.... Pics will help with that too.

How did you appt go? I would post a question to the doctors on this forum and ask their advice on whatever your ps recommended and see if they concur. You will need to tell them your chest size, height, weight, what type implant, style, size, under or over, incision site etc... and post front and side view pics.

hey Leonor.. it really depends on your BWD to see what size works well for you .. I ended up with 400cc . I think by bwd was 13.. try to sizers and try doing to rice test to see what works well. just remember that once they are under everything they will not look at big as the sizers or doing the rice test but it will give you a good idea. For me one I did the rie test I had a pretty good idea of the size I wanted. Hopefully this works for you .

Thank you for the encouragement Angie! There are some days I just want to back out but I know I'd regret it and feel fortunate to have the opportunity! Thanks for the helpful info on your neighbor. Did she get 250? Hoping for saline, but I'll hear the doctor out!!! What was your experience like?

I don't know what my neighbor got exactly, just know it was in the 200s. I haven't had breast aug myself (though I manage the community), so can only offer second hand anecdotes. That said, I've learned a ton about breast aug and can guide you around the site like nobody's business, so be sure to PM me if you need help.

Thanks for putting your story up! Kids will really do a number on your breasts and I totally get why moms do this! My neighbor is about your size and got the same size you're mentioning (saline, under muscle) and she looks great. So proportional.

There's not a big difference in 25ccs, so don't agonize too much over 225 vs. 250.

And you've had two kids! You can totally pull this off pain wise.
