I have been wanting a BA for as long as I can...

I have been wanting a BA for as long as I can remember. I am 31 years old, no children and just couldn't stand feeling like I looked like a twelve year old girl undressed. I didn't want to do it for the attention but just to feel like a woman. I am 5'7", 117lbs and 27" ribcage (very petite) so I wanted to choose something that would look natural and proportionate to my body. My options were the 360cc , 400cc UHP or 325cc, 350cc Natrelle style 20. My BWD is only 10.5" so I didn't have much room to go bigger. I choose the high profile style 20 bc I heard that the UHP can look too round and unnatural. I ended up with the 350cc in my left 325cc in my right breast to even them out. So far, I feel happy with the results. They look small to me but I hear that they will drop and get larger. I can't wait!
happy healing

3 days Post op

You look great ! I'm on 7 day post op having horrible nipple sensation....driving me crazy!!!!! So your breasts were about a 25cc difference???? Is that why your PS did two sizes? My right was smaller than the left but only by 11cc or so not much so we did same size implants. Well you're looking great! I'm getting so bored at home I want to go to the gym bad. :-(

Hi Lihen68! I totally know what you mean about the nipple sensation. I can't even walk into a cold room without my nipples tingling. Lol. My breasts were slightly uneven so she wanted to correct it with different implants. I do wish that I would've gone larger in the UHP implants but I was afraid bc everyone said that they would look "too round". Oh well... I feel like mine look natural and compliment my body. I can't wait to workout again either! Just a few more weeks. Good luck with your recent BA :)

2 days post op

13 days post op

Okay....so I am feeling a lot better since the first week of surgery. I am finally able to sleep at night. I was waking up from back aches and pains. I forgot how nice it was tone able to sleep on my stomach. Those days are over!!! Anyway, they are feeling less foreign to me and are starting to settle a bit. I think that my skin must have been really tight bc they are still at my collarbone. How long does it take for them to D& F? I hope that they will get fuller. The swelling is down so they feel smaller to me :(
I'm feeling the same as you! Mine don't look large to me. I wish someone could tell me what size I will be when they're dropped! But I know that's not realistic. Your results look great!
Reply
Yeah good choice with the high profile. I did moderate plus profile 286cc. Any bigger it would have been to big.

Implants are still high

Another pic

Side view

There isn't much projection from the side. I'm almost as flat as before. I hope that they drop and will get more projection. :(
you look good! Mine look small to me and I am a D !!! I really thought I was a C until I tried bras on ( a lot of different brands and styles) didn't cover half my boob...lol! They will drop and fluff .. Mine have changed a lot in the past week ! I am at 1 month.
Reply
Thanks Breeezebaby! That's good to know. I'm not dissatisfied with them overall but they look flat under clothes. The main reason I got them was to fit my clothes better and I do. I can fit into all my tops from before and sports bras. I was imagining them being too right afterwards. I guess that I was expecting a major difference in size. Lol

Perfect size!!!!

They seem to be dropping

Meds for the first week

hi! yours are still high ...I didn't think my was changing much so I started taking pics everyday and now looking back, I see a huge difference. I can still fit in a lot of my tops from before that were mediums but all the smalls had to go after a months time. It depends on the profile of the implants you have also. I got high profile so from the front view they look big but looking down they are small. I don't have upper pole unless I wear a bra. I have lower pole like real boobs. Also your tall like me so they will look smaller than they really are. just give it time and they will look awesome!
Reply
You got 350 right?? that should make you at least 2 cups sizes bigger than you started with. what size were you before implants?? I was a 34A now im a 34D ..I got 25cc more than you. very small difference. I have 375cc high profile smooth round SIENTRA gel silicone. maybe that will help give you an idea of what size you will have.

Lol!!! :-) plus i love the gym and i can't have huge jugs in my way!!! Lol!!!!

Depressed...

Well, I am feeling a bit down bc lately the feedback from most of my friends has been that I could've "gone bigger" in size. It is so frustrating to go through all the pain and anxiety of planning a major surgery (not to mention the $$$). My whole reason to get a BA was to feel sexier in my clothes. Right now, I feel that my breasts look so flat from the side. I kinda look like a B cup! I kinda feel embarrassed too that I told everyone about it and they were probably expecting me to look so much different. I dont know if i should consider a revision. Has anyone else felt this way?
Fitnessgal!!!!! I thought the same thing!! Just wait awhile you'll be glad you didn't!!!! I was so depressed the first week, drove my fiance crazy thinking things like that. Now i look at myself and I'm so happy I didn't. It wouldn't have matched my figure. When i look at that model picture of you, you look proportionate and beautiful!! Your breasts still need to heal and drop. Don't worry I promise you!!! Hang in there!!!!!
Reply
Thank you Lilhen68! I'm trying to stay positive. I feel like my friends didn't understand what I went through or they wouldn't have said to go back through another surgery. There are risks involved! Thank you for the compliments :) I do feel that they match my body and my husband said that he wouldn't want them any bigger. I will wait for them to drop and maybe will be happier with the results. Thank you again for your support! I really appreciate it!

I was a 32 small A before but I chose natrelle 20 high profile with 3.8 projection 350cc and the 325cc on the left side. I'm happy to hear that they will change. I felt kinda sad tonight bc one of my friends made a comment on them looking small. She said that I should go back to get a bigger size. I wasn't feeling that bad until I realized that mine look small compared to her natural D's. :(

Day 21 but still high

Your pictures look great. Its been less than a month and it takes longer than that to see final results (from what I heard mine is 5/27). I also have a small rib cage ~11 cm. There are cons to going bigger than your chest can accommodate and the risk of needing revision sooner is higher due to complications. Plus gravity still works on implants. The only reason you should go bigger is because you want to. I personally think you look great and proportional.
Reply
Thank you Kat4you! You are right about the risks of larger implants. I read that somewhere too. I have seen my gf's with bigger ones drop really low after 5-7 years time. I feel a little better about my decision. I wanted to play it on the safe side and not end up looking disproportionate. I'm going to see how these look in a few months bc I heard that they can get bigger when they D & F.

Good luck on your surgery!!! What size are you going with?

I had to try on a bra for the 1st time

I went thru exactly what you are feeling....boob greed! I was too apprehensive to initially go bigger though! Your boobs will change sooo much within the next three months. Mine looked like flat torpedoes at first too & it freaked me out! Lol you're not alone. Hang in there! ;)
Reply
Haha, I know what you mean. They looks so funny and flat to me now but your pics look great!

They seem to be shrinking! Lol

350 cc Natrelle 20 & 4.9 Projection~

I know that my breast shape is changing because they are flattening a bit but the implant is still on my collarbone. It feels weird! I am constantly feeling like there is something under my skin and it is uncomfortable. Hopefully, this feeling will go away and they will feel like a part of me and not something foreign.
We have almost the exact same stats! So awesome to find someone so similar to me! My chest is soooo tight, how long did you have this feeling? I feel like they're going to explode off of my chest! I'm 5'7 115 27in rib cage and got 375cc
Reply
Awesome! I would love to see your pics to compare results. :) I have had the feeling since day one and it is slowly getting better but still feels tight.
Reply
What size bra did you try on? and what size were you pre op? do you have any pics?… they would be helpful! I think you will end up liking your size. They look good for your body. I was scared that i went too big and I wanted them to shrink. But now I'm happy. Bigger implants will sag more and have possibly more complications. I look at it in the long run how i'd like them to look. If they are too big, over time, they begin to look not so great and I don't know many ppl that can afford getting revisions like every 5 years or less. I plan to get mine done once again after i have kids maybe within 10-15 years.

34 C bra after

Before 32A

I was a stomach sleeper n side too ... Slept on my back the first 3-4 weeks then slowly I was waking up on my side and this past week on my stomach ... It's like my body healed and now is going back to old habits :) today is my 6 weeks post op and I still can't sleep on side or stomach confortebly witouth puting pillow under and in the middle of the breasts .... It's crazy . I'm 5'5 and 118lb and I got 324 silicone mentor moderate . Mine are settling nice and I got mesure ...32DD .... I had nothing .... Literally nothing to start with . I think they look like a small c ... Naaaa I'm lying to myself ... A large c but I'm happy ! !!! I wanted a large b and super small c too but now that they re there I think they are prefer size for my frame ! YOURES will look fabulous don't worried . Good luck !

Sorry for all the typos

Thanks colette3boys!!! It's nice to know that the uncomfortableness will subside and I will be able to sleep on my side again. The pressure feeling has gotten a lot better. They don't bother me as much as a few weeks ago. As far as cup sizes, I am trying not to worry so much. Sizes vary from store to store. I am sure that I will at least be a C since im budting out of my old 34 B bras (who would've imagined? Lol). Anyways, I'm sure you will return to your old sleeping habits in no time. I know how you feel though...it is so hard to find a comfortable position laying on your back. I just remind myself that this is only a temporary stage in the healing process. How are you feeling otherwise? Do you still have any pain?

Comfortable bra

I bought this bra before surgery at Walmart for only $10!!! It's is super comfortable to sleep in. Also, I am attempting to dye my roots for the first time post-op. wish me luck :)

Waiting for them to drop still

I drew a line with my eyeliner just to show where the implants are in relation to my neck and shoulders. Can't wait for them to drop!!!
How did dying your roots go? I'd have assumed at almost a month po that shouldn't have been too bad? I love how u drew a line with ur eyeliner haha, you're still pretty high
Reply
My dye job was a success. Haha. I hadn't done my hair since two months before the BA so it looked kinda bad. I'm still hopeful that they will fluff and project more.
Reply
Well I wasn't really hoping for a particular bra size just something bigger and more equal to my butt lol more hourglass instead of lear shaped haha but I didn't want watermelons so I guess we'll see when they drop!

My thoughts...

So...here's an update. I have been feeling more positive these last few days. Yes, the "boob greed" monster rears its ugly head occasionally when I see a woman with larger breasts. Still, I feel like the whole experience of having a BA was a positive one. I do not feel embarrassed when changing in the locker room at the gym anymore. I also can fill out my tops (still size small) and bras and not have to stuff some awkward rubber inserts in them. The only advice that I have for girls considering this is to not try to size yourself. Rely on the expertise of your PS. I am happy and content with my 325cc & 350cc. However, would I have chosen the next size up? Yes, Absolutely! Don't get me wrong... I love the shape of my breasts and they are perky and fit my body. But I feel that I could also pull off a curvier bust and still look natural. I feel like no one would ever know that I had a BA if they didn't know me beforehand. That can be both a good and bad thing (depending on how you look at it). Natural is beautiful too and I feel that even my size 32AAAAA's (exaggerating a bit) before were beautiful!!!! All women should feel sexy and beautiful about themselves. We don't need to be perfect on the outside to feel this way. After all, beauty is subjective. Feel beautiful on the inside and it will make you look even more beautiful on the outside. I know that for me personally this experience has been an emotional roller coaster. I appreciate all the support and love from the girls on this site. Thank you much!!! Xoxo
Fitnessgal23 you look amazing!! Glad to hear your happy with the outcome! I'm happy as well but I agree with you on the emotional rollercoaster. My fiance is still not use to them yet and either am I. It's getting better to. Yesterday not to get TMI on you all.....lol........we had sex and of course I was covered up on top so he would look at them. Last weekend he couldn't even look at the scars he was grossed out. He won't even touch them yet :-( I hope he will come around soon.
Reply
I'm so glad that you told me this... My husband hasn't touched mine yet either. In fact he wasn't big on the idea of me getting a BA at first then caved in when he saw that I was unhappy. He said that he is not a "boob guy" but IDK. I know right now they are kinda sensative and very firm so it's hard for him to touch them. I sure hope that our guys will come around soon!!! I can't understand why a guy would not want to touch them. I play with mine all day bc they are so new to me and its weird having something there now. Haha. Hope all gets better darling :)
Reply
Yahoo! Haha wow really, I did mine just before my BA so I wouldn't have to deal w it. You're only a month out so they deff should! I'm about 2months out and hoping for the same thing
Reply

This was me 3 weeks ago

I'm totally going thru the same thing! I am so happy to fill in bikini tops and bras but I'm still wearing a small in most! They are way better than before for sure. I was adamant that I wanted to be natural and not oblivious that I'd had a BA. I never even asked my ps if I could go bigger however I did ask to go smaller and I'm so glad he said no. At 1 month post op I'm measuring a full B cup. I hope as they settle I'll end up a C but who knows. Unless I'm wearing a tight shirt they get totally swallowed up on clothes. I'm very grateful that size is my only concern cuz this expiernce has been way easier than I expected. I think you look amazing and as they drop they'll fill out more.
Reply
Hi Smokey5!!! I am happy that your surgery went well. I had a chance to check out your page as well. I think you look absolutely beautiful. They look very full to me. I'm sure that when they settle you will at least be a full C or maybe D cup. It's cool that we also have similar measurements and body type. What size were you before your BA?

I wore a 32A but measured A 32 B. I wore the A cuz in the B I had so much gapping.

I can't wait to try on bras!

I'm so excited to go bra shopping soon. They are opening a Nordstrom's near me and can't wait to shop there. Everyone says that is the place to shop for bras bc they carry the 30" & 32" band in larger sizes. Also want to check out VS! I just have to be patient since mine haven't dropped all the way yet.
Nordstrom Rack killllllss any other bra place ive found..vs has way cute stuff but not in the smaller band/bigger cup sized bras! plus the rack is wayyy cheaper

Trying on bras

I found this bra at Walmart. Just wanted to be ready for when I am able to wear regular bras again. Unfortunately it is EXTREMELY difficult to find a C Cup in less than a 36 band. I'm really a 32 but usually buy 34 cause that's all I can find period.
You look great but I totally understand wanting to go bigger, you could easily handle 500cc or more.
Reply
My PS told me that the biggest in the UHP I could go is 420cc Maybe bc I have a BWD of 10.5". We're they wrong? I feel so confused bc I see other girls with 26.5" ribcages getting 400cc HP and they told me that I could only go with 350cc HP. I feel incredibly small compared to what I imagined they would look like under clothes. I kept reading that it is best not to do more than 400cc for your first BA due to risks. So, I played it safe but now I have regrets.

The 36c bra looks like it fits u well

My size Sm sports bra still fits

Lingerie shopping

I couldn't help myself and had to try on a few more bras but I'm not buying one yet until my implants fully drop and fluff.
I am going through the same thing right now. I did 380cc because PS said they could only go as high as 425 and I didn't want the porn star fake look so I went a little smaller but gosh I wish I would have done the 425. They have shrunk so much. Of course its better then what I had but I still feel let down. Yours do look great though :)
Reply

Feeling impatient

I know that it's too early to see my final results but when I look in the mirror I feel like they are incredibly small. Maybe it's bc they are only projecting about 1" more than my natural breasts did. It's weird bc they are 3x's as round. I don't seem to have any cleavage either. Also, my left breast has been squeaking! Yes, that's right...squeaking like you can hear the implant. It's bizarre! Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone had any advice about the high profile implants and if they do give you cleavage and project more? Right now, I am really looking like a B cup in size but they are so round I can fit into a large C small D.
Mine are moderate plus profile and my breasts are a little separated do to how they are on my chest. Might be the same for you. Even if you went bigger you might still have that separation. Yours look perfect! To early to see results yet. They fit your frame perfectly!!

I see what you mean... I did have a small gap before. So, maybe that will still be there. I'm going to my post op appointment on June 10th so I will get to talk to my doc then. How are you coming along?

Fitnessgal23 I'm doing great!!! I had to cancel my appointment today with my PS cuz I'm sick. Going to see him in two weeks. I feel like I lost so much muscle which is depressing. I went to the gym last week Wednesday through Sat then started feeling sick. Now I'm just pissed it set me back. My fiance is getting use to them more and actually played with them on Sat lol!!!!! I'm happy with the size and glad I didn't go bigger. I think I wouldn't regretted that. I think your results look perfect on you and I'm sure your husband feels the same!

Measurement time

I had to pull out the measuring tape cause curiosity got the better of me. Before, I was 32" 24" 36" and now I am 35" 24" 36" . I don't know what that means as far as bra sizing.
cleavage depends on your anatomy so if your breasts were far apart before they prob be like that with implants I haven't got a cleavage unless im wearing a bra. I had squeaking and popping it was very weird but ps said it was normal.
Reply
Lol that's weird about the squeaky noise! Yeah my nipples are still sensitive to. Yours still need to drop for sure. I'm surprised that your PS hasn't given you the ok to gym it yet. Mine told me I can do anything after two weeks just listen to your body and if I do upper just very light. I think I'll start upper next week by then I'll be 1 month post. I feel so soft and out of shape now it's driving me crazy. I just ordered my supplements from prime nutrition so I can get back into it next week! We'll I hope your feelings about your breasts are that they're perfect!!!!!
Reply
I can imagine it is. It is difficult to find a bra with a 32 or 34" band in a size C or above. I haven't met with my PS yet but I will have to wait for these to settle. I think that if I do decide to go bigger, it won't be right away. I have already taken so much time off work. Plus, I don't want to rush into another surgery right away. How are you healing?

More pics

I was shopping with a girlfriend today and we went in Victorias Secret. I couldn't resist trying on a few more bras but I am adamant about waiting to buy one until my breasts settle. There were some really cute ones! I love the blue and white balconette.
Your measurements mean. Nothing now because the implants is high so the measurement would be incorrect. When you do have your correct measurements, some brands go down in band if your an odd # (vs does) and some go up a #. I think I saw up on either maidenform or Fredericksburg site. Your band is supposed to be clipped on the loosest or middle hook so that when the bra stretches out you can adjust it tighter. If it's in the middle you can adjust it more loose if you gain weight. If you wear it on the righted hook and it stretches out, you won't be able to adjust it tighter so you would need a smaller band.
Reply
I'd definitely try to go bra-less as often as you can. Also wear that band your PS gave you. It will help them drop. Good luck! Love your bras you've tried on!
Reply
Thank you aboley74! I will start wearing the band again. I'm surprised that my PS didn't tell me to do this the day of surgery.

My family is in town.

So, my in-laws are in town for a week and they are spending the afternoons by the pool. I haven't found a way to tell them yet that I got a BA. They will probably find out soon enough. I'm not sure how to approach the topic if I am asked.
If asked you can assume they kno at that point and I'd just tell them, idk how conservative they are but tell em yep I got them done an that's it. If they want details maybe they'll ask? Or they'll just ask ur husband instead of asking u? You'd be suprised how supportive people are!

Bikini shopping

It's been a while since I have been on here. A lot has happened since... We are planning a trip to Pensacola in August so I have to pick out a few swimsuits before then. I went on VS website and most swimsuits are back ordered. I will probably order a 32 C and return it if it doesn't fit. Also, I am looking for a new job. I am in sales and when I took a week my new boss said that it hurt my numbers. I am working 55 hrs + a week and tired of feeling guilty for taking some time off. Sry to go on about my personal life. I know that this is a website for cosmetic surgery. I just need to vent a little.
You look amaZing! You are lucky to have a beautiful figure to go with those new girls of yours! I, on the other hand, had to get a mommy makeover with breast lift , implants, And tummy tuck. I totally understand worrying about the size and cleavage. I think we all have thoughts that we should have gone bigger. I am 10 weeks post op and hoping to see improvement but I just remind myself that my boobs look alot better than the saggy ones I had before. It helps me realize that I don't have to look bigger just better. You are beautiful and the size you have looks perfect on your frame. Some of those bras you tried on even made them look ginormous! I hope you enjoy them and how fabulous you look!
Reply
Thank you @Getmysexyback!!! Congrats on your mommy makeover! I had a chance to look at some of your pics and you look great!!! I'm starting to accept the size that I chose. I realize that I had practically nothing before so I should be grateful that now I can fill up a C cup. I didn't want to look too top heavy or obvious so these are perfect for that subtle look. Plus, they should drop and fluff more in the next fee months. I hope that yours are healing well too. :)

New pics

Oh my gosh you look amazing!!! I love the red bikini too, looks great on you and it shows off the awesome shape of your new girls! I hope once my drop and fluff they will look like that. Also, I had the exact same issue with telling friends I was getting the BA and since I wore majorly padded bras I was really embarrassed that you can hardly tell a difference when I wear a t-shirt. I've started to realize that even if they can't tell a difference right now, i can! It's no longer padding it's all me! It's just nice to know that I'm not the only one who had this problem. Good luck with everything and I hope you continue to enjoy your new boobs! :)

Thank you girl!!! It's nice to meet someone who feels the way I do. I am starting to get adjusted to mine but I feel like they alternate bw too big in swim suits and too small under clothing.

Are they ever going to drop?

I feel like they are definitely softer but they still have a ways to go. Does anyone know how many months it can take to see the final results?
It can take up to a yr for final results, but usually around 6 months
Reply

Too small?

I am still undecided about the size bc I like how they look in push-up bras but when I'm wearing no bra, I feel that they are tiny. It's maybe cause I have big hips and butt. I know that I am still getting adjusted to them but perhaps down the road, I will go bigger.
Mine also look small in clothes and I know they have gone firm a D to a DD since week 8. I bought a bra then and now at week 12 they are too big for that bra. When I wear some clothes they look small but bathing suit or tight shirt they look huge. I think yours look absolutely perfect for your shape. They look natural. Looking at your very first post that is what you wanted to achieve. Remember how you felt before surgery. I am sure you feel sexier now. I believe we all wish we went bigger. There was a period in my recovery that I did too. But as they continued to settle i realized I look better than before and going bigger would just make me feel more self conscious because they would attract the wrong kind of attention. You look beautiful. Give it time and remember where you started. Somehow we need to combat those thoughts of being bigger and enjoy our new beautiful selves.
Reply
You are absolutely right! I do feel a lot more confident than I did before. It's also encouraging to know that they continue to grow. Mine are so high right now that I think if they come down more and get more projection, I will love them. They are measuring at a 32C or 32D but the fullness is at the top not bottom. What size did you ask for?!?! You must be happy to measure DD!!!

Coke bottle shape! Damn, they look amazing and that hot pink or red(?) bikini is sexy girl! I feel like mine look small in clothes too! Unless I'm on a low cut tank and push-up. But yours look great

Full body

You look really great with your new girls. I was reading a bit and we have about the same BDW. I went with the Sientra anatomical with 5.3 projection. Very limited on what would work also. It's only been 5 days and today was the first time I got to see them without the "band". I think they look small, until I compare them with what I had before! I think you made the perfect choice for your body!

Bra hunting cont..

I was at Target, Kohls, & Dillard's the other day and could not find a 32 C or D bra that wasn't heavily padded. Does anyone else notice how difficult it is to find a bra that is not padded or push-up? I relied on the add-a-size bras before my BA but I really want to see if mine are true to size. Where is a good place to find soft or lightly lined bras?
I don't think your boobs are to small, they look nice in proportion with your body!
Reply
Thank you breezebaby!!! I still have to remind myself everyday that I started off with much less so I should be grateful to have what I do. I guess that my expectations of having a BA were high and my perception of a C-cup was way bigger than I see in the mirror. Before my BA I said that I would be happy with even a full B and now I am kinda disappointed to not end up with a small D. Crazy how much of a psycological rollercoaster this has been. How are you coming along???

I just want to thank all of the lovely ladies on here for your word of encouragement. I am slowly starting to feel like myself again. I realized that all my stress was causing a huge strain on my marriage and making me a miserable person to be around. Sometimes it is best to just be thankful for all the blessings in your life. I know that I made the best choice on implant size because I chose the 2nd to largest implant that my body could handle. I could only have gone up to UHP 360cc (not much different... 5.1 projection instead of 4.9) and the 400 UHP were pushing the envelope because they were way over my BDW and the PS wasn't sure they would fit. With that said, I feel much more confident that I chose the right size. I am going to embrace my new body and try to remind myself that the reason that I had a BA was to feel more confident & sexy. Now, I can say that I definitely do feel that way!
Your BA looks amazing and very proportionate to your body. One thing that I have noticed is that girls who show big boobies with clothes have really big implants, 650cc + that's awesome but really big for petite girls. Naked you look great and everything fits. Boob greed can be awful, thought about it myself too, but once I'm naked in front of a mirror or on a bikini I'm amazed how perfect my new bobbies look. Don't put yourself down, you are totally rocking your new girls!!

Thank you Tica2mom! You have a point there. It takes way more than the normal 350-400cc implants to look big under layers of clothing. I definitely don't want them that big. Also, imagine how they will look after 10 years. I have friends who got big implants but they are having to get them redone cause they do sag down just like real breasts. Also, have a tendency to bottom out more. I'm realizing that I picked a size that is perfect for my active lifestyle.

I agree! You do look amazing!

Maybe it's all in my head

I haven't been on here as much for the last few weeks due to personal issues. I just want to report that I am feeling way better about my breasts! I realized that most of models & celebreties that were on my boob wish pic list are not as big as I had imagined before. When you are a flat AAAA.. cup, everyone seems to have bigger boobs. However, when I look around now, I realize that mine look a little too big & round compared to the natural ones. If you are feeling bad about your size, just check out these pics that I found on the internet... Not sure if any of them have had work done since...but it just shows that what we percieve is not always reality. I sas my breast implants as too small, when they are actually big in proportion to my frame and I would look silly if they were bigger!
Fitnessg a l!!! That's true!!!!! Glad your feeling better!!!! You look amazing!!!!!

How much will they change???

Okay.... So, I am now wondering what to expect in the next 6 months to a year. For all of you ladies who have reached that point... Do they continue to drop and fluff more? What kind of changes did you see over time? Just curious :))

Progress...

hi! glad to see your doing well. I found some cute bras at a store called RAINBOW...2 bras for 10.00! they actually had 34Ds ..among other sizes. I was going to VS but 50.00 for 1 bra gets expensive fast. Good luck with the healing! I am at almost 4 months and mine are still dropping ..so I guess its true about taking a year for final results.
Reply
That's awesome!!! I will have to check them out. I went to VS again yesterday and tried on a bunch of bras. I just won't spend $60 for one bra. I wait until their semi annual sale. I'm glad to hear that your still doing well. Keep me posted :)

How did things go with your inlaws? That was my biggest fear going into this.

My day at the mall

Yesterday I went to the mall with me of my gf's and we ended up back in VS (seriously can't go to the mall without stopping in there). Well anyways, get this... I'm a 32D in the unpadded unlined bras and 32DD in push-up bras. Surprisingly, I was busting out of both sizes. I definitely know that mine still have a ways to go to settle bc they look like I'm wearing a push-up bra 24/7. I was just shocked and a little happy to know that I'm not that small. I know VS sizes run a little bigger but my friend is a 34D and she looks plenty busty...I can't imagine if I would have gone bigger...I would have to custom order bras! I'm not saying that my breasts look terribly big under clothing but I am glad that I can fit comfortably in a 32D or even 34C at a department store cause its hard to find bras in larger sizes. #feelingbetter
Your boobs and body look amazing. It's also very proportionate with your shape. Although I understand how you feel. I'm just 2 days post op and boob greed is kicking in already.
Reply
Thank you... Some days I feel good about them and other days I wish that I would have gone with the 400cc UHP implants. Since I'm tall and have curvy hips, they don't really look as large in proportion to my body. I'm going to my consult on Friday and will talk to my PS. I'm not really crazy about the way that my one breast is still riding high and they don't really look the same size. Maybe this will change over time. What size did you go with?
Reply
Glad your feeling better about your boobs because I think they look amazing! Those pictures of small boobie celebrities is making me feel better. Although I'm big right now, knowing that my boobs will shrink to the big B small C that I originally wanted, it's kind of depressing me because I want them to stay looking "big" since hell, I paid all this money for em. Such a psychological thing that everyone seems to go through! But glad your poppin out of your D bra! You look great!

I was wondering if anyone recommends scar away to mederma? Which is better? I am fair skinned so scars are kinda visa or still.
Man I wish my boobs looked like that lying down! Mine just fall into my armpits!!

i think thats normal...I'm hoping mine soften up a bit.

Be who you are not what others want you to be...

So I have come to the conclusion that I am indeed satisfied with the size of my breasts. I think that they could be larger, and I would indeed look "too obvious". I'm happy that my breasts aren't the center of attention. They compliment my body while looking natural. My husband likes them and is also glad that I didn't go bigger. The few friends that said that I should have gone larger do not understand that I don't want to look like a porn star!!! I think that the general perception is that all augmented breasts have to look too big and very round. However, this is not the look that I wanted. Mine are plenty big for my slender frame but not oversized. I can fill out a bathing suit and bra which is nice. So my advice to girls who are getting a BA or anticipating going through the surgery, don't let others influence you on how your body should look. It's YOUR body, not there's!!! Before my surgery, I spoke to some of my friends and got their opinions. Most of my girlfriends thought that I should go way bigger(D-DD) and the guys said that I would look best with no more than a large B or small C cup... Just goes to show the difference in opinions b/w men & women. The point of my story is just to be happy with yourself and don't worry about what others think. :))
Well said!

Amen! Perfectly said!

Maybe I'm crazy...

Okay, well I just went in for my post op appointment the other day. Btw, my PS is Amazing! I expressed my concerns and am contemplating whether to exchange implants. As I mentioned earlier, I chose to go with the Natrelle style 20 and 350cc was my max in HP. I'm kinda concerned bc one implant is not dropping properly and they are too wide for my chest. I kept reading a lot of negative things about the UHP style 45's. Does anyone have any info on these. I was afraid of looking like I had two basketballs on my chest. What should I do? I don't want to go through surgery again but afraid that these implants will stay pushed up to my neck. Will my skin stretch to accommodate them? Help!
You look great! Try barenecessities.com and herroom.com for some bras with smaller bands. They have a great selection.

Yours look amazing!!! I'm seeing my PS next Friday cuz I'm seeing some rippling which is weird. I sometimes wish I would've gotten the high profile. What I'm reading tho it wouldn't have stopped it from rippling. It depends on your skin and your built. When I stand normally you can't tell but if I'm bending over you can see it. I'll keep you posted. My PS thinks I'm to lean and fit. We'll see next Friday. You look great tho!!!!!!
Reply
I also have just a tad but on my right breast. I kinda think it's just from positioning because on the right I can feel the implant a little on the outer side when I raise my arm, but on the left I don't feel it at all.

Let me be honest...

I have been struggling more lately than I have let on. I don't like to keep going on and on about my boobs. I seriously have a love/hate relationship with them. They are not exactly my "dream boobs". I don't feel excited about dressing them up or wearing bras. The size is acceptable (but slightly too small). I guess that my expectations were set too high. I don't like the way they feel either. I thought that after so many months I would get used to them but I'm still waiting. I think that I drive my husband crazy bc I talk about them so much. Why do I feel this way?!?!
I completely agree with Mommy_Of_Twoo. You have legitimate concerns and emotions. It's been 7 months since my BA and I still talk about my outcome a lot. I strive for perfection and figured that I would come out of with 2 perfect melons sitting on my chest. One's anatomy plays such a huge role along with your existing breast tissue. I know that it's disappointing to pay sooooo much money for something and not necessarily get the results you were hoping for. If it's any consolation, I think you look great. :) Keep us posted on things!
Reply
Ty Perky_Pgh! You're right about the anatomy thing... You can put the same implant on 10 different girls and get 10 different results. It's so unpredictable! I looked a pics of girls with similar stats to me but some had more breast tissue and some had nursed kids (these things can play a role in the results). I have very tight skin so my implants stayed very high, round and flat. I hope that you are doing well and happy with your results. I will keep you posted on what I do. Pls do the same... XoXo :)

Vacation

I just got back from vacation and boy do I feel better! I was able to escape the stress that has been weighing on me since this BA. I did not worry about my breasts or look at before and after pictures on the Internet once while on vacation. You would think that it would have been difficult to go to the beach and see other women in bikinis with bigger boobs. Ironically, it was a great escape. I felt like just having fun!!! I am going to continue to keep myself occupied so that I don't slip back into feeling depressed. Thanks to all the girls who have been giving me advice & support. XoXo
Girl you look amazing! And I agree you look better than some models! And that's what they do for a living! Give it a couple of months and go for a revision if they still bother you. Also, implants will look different on you cause you haven't had babies and breastfed to enlarge the breasts. I think your results are great!

the implants seem to have really evened your ratio out. Your figure is better than a models. Its absolutely stunning. Hope you feel better about things soon.

Thank you darlin!!! I am trying to keep my head up :)

Lesson Learned...

I just want to say a few things to the girls who are considering getting a BA... Make sure that you and your PS are on the same page about your goals/expectations. I used words such as "natural" C cup" and was not clear. I definitely wanted a more augmented look than I currently have. I wanted them big but natural. My interpretation of a C cup was on a 34 band and not a 32 (technically a 34B). I would've asked for a full 32D if I would have known this. It is so confusing bc I had never worn a 32 band before my surgery. I don't plan on wearing one now either. When I buy a 34C from the department store, some fit and others are too big. I wish that I would've recognized the difference bw a 32D and 34D. I just don't want any other girls to feel the disappointment that I feel. Don't get me wrong, I am way better than before but I still look bottom heavy. You would never notice that I had work done. Nevertheless, I will keep my head up and the hope that one day I will get the look that I wanted.
What my doc had told me that really changed my mind about size was to not focus on the cup size and focus on the look u want. I started off a 34a and I told him please I do NOT want to be a D cup, I said I'm short 4"11 and I will look way too fake and like a porn star. I wanted a C cup. I showed him pics and he just told me to pick what size I thought was best for me, I read about boob greed before surgery so I went with the biggest size that my body could take which was 380/410cc. I originally thought 300cc would of been good for me. Thank god I chose bigger cuz I'm super happy !!!! I do have a tiny bit of boob greed but nothing major to do a revision. I am in fact a D cup. I'm a 32DD/ 34D. I don't care anymore that I'm a D because it sure doesn't look like it on me and I can even hide them which is nice cuz at my work ppl don't even know. I love it. Good luck with whatever u decide to do. I also tell myself to remember how I looked like before surgery. I was a mess- I suffered from tuberous deformity. My boobs were ugly n pointed and my nipples were basically covering my whole boobs. I look at them now and even tho my scar is ugly I have come a long way and am so grateful- no issues or anything. Best decision ever. I hope u get the look u want- btw I'm obsessed with ur curves!!!!! Lol
Reply
Thanks girl! I wish that i could get rid of some of my curves (my hips, butt are so gianormous)! I still look like a pear-shape even after implants. I'm happy that you got the look that you wanted! You are absolutely right.. I obsessed and freaked out about ending up a DD bc I was picturing a 34DD standard bra size. I had no idea that the cup size was going to be scaled down to my proportions or I would've asked for larger. I knew the look that I wanted but was scared off by seeing girls get DD's from small implants and thought that I didn't want anything that big. If I knew that implants look smaller than real breasts under clothes, I wouldn't have chosen this size. I'm gonna save up the money and eventually get the look that I wanted.

Hey, I just came across your review. First of all I just wanted to say you look amazing! Your body is rockin! Haha anyway I have 320/360 style 45 implants. I dont think that they look bad at all. The only issue is my left breast will be needing a lift, but I am going to see my PS tomorrow about scheduling that.

New pics

My surgery is in 2.5 weeks and I'm also getting 325 and 350 high profile, but I'm afraid I'm going to have the same emotions and wish that I would have gotten bigger. I started out wanting a big B and now think I want a full C maybe even a small D. It's so tough to decide because the same size implant looks different on every person that I've seen. I used the words natural and C cup too, but I'm not sure that I truly know what a C looks like so I think I'm going to go to the mall and look at or try on some bras to hopefully get a better idea.
Reply
Hi, Kitten92! If you have any doubt at all that you might wish for something bigger, you definitely need to do the sizers again and communicate your feelings to your PS. Buying a bra the size of what you want is a brilliant idea! Do it soon! :-) Good luck!

Accepting imperfection & moving on...

As I have stated in my last posts, I am not 100% happy with the size. I thank everyone for their support. I has been a challenge to look in the mirror and feel beautiful. However, I am not going to rush into another surgery at this stage. I figure that I can give them more time. Instead, I have decided to focus on getting in better shape and working on my painting. Sometimes it is best to praise the blessings that you have in your life. XoXo

Pre-BA

Hi, I read your story and the only thing I can say is Patience. You have to give it time. They will look bigger once they have completely D&F. It can take up to a year before you get the final results. I know it's a very long time to wait, but try your best. Focus on what ever makes you happy and one day you will wake up be surprised. If after waiting a bit you still feel like going bigger, do as you feel. Good luck and happy healing!
Reply
Thanks girl! Do they really grow after five months? I thought that mine were almost fully settled by now. I would love for them to at least fill out enough so I feel proportionate. I made the mistake of trying on sports bras today in front of a full length morror. Needless to say, I left the store feeling sad and discouraged. I hope that you're right about them still D & F more.

I had my BA in Sept 2013 and have been unhappy with my size as well. I went from a small A cup. to a moderate C cup. (275cc silicone MP). I have an exchange scheduled for 9/25/14, unless I change my mind. I feel bad about the boob greed and keep changing my mind. I haven't told many people this time bc no one seems to understand.

I wanted to upload some new photos to show everyone why I do not like the size. I requested a full C cup and I know that mine look more like a full B. I have discussed this with my PS but they said that it will cost $3500 to get a revision! I feel a bit let down that I went in there expecting a certain look and came out with teeny tiny tittys Lol. Not that they don't fit my body, I just wanted something that had a "wow" factor. Nevertheless, I'm still not jumping into surgery again so soon. Also, I have been doing better by keeping busy. I am starting to make home-made sea salt scrubs that have aromatherapy oils. I would like to start selling them online along with my artwork.

My last post...

I do not want for any girls to take my last post in a negative way. I think that a B cup can look great and natural on certain body types. If I was not a pear-shape, I would be happy with this size. Anyways, I don't want to make anyone feel bad. :-/
Your feeling are valid!! I too suffer from all that you feel,and I got 400 cc silicone memory gel,and I just don't feel like I got my money's worth.Dr said outcome would be a "D" but I feel like a full B small C. You uplifted me by staying occupied on things you enjoy instead of focusing on how miserable our Boob outcome is/was, hopefully in time we Will grow to Love them.Cause I sure as hell Don't have the cash for a revision.Best Wishes!!
Reply
I know that we all have our own personal views & opinions on our wish/outcome for a BA. My revision was going to be $3,500 as well. You feel like you spent all this $ on surgery and it's not what you had hoped for. Then to fork out even more money is disheartening. Sometimes pictures don't do justice though. Only you know how you truly feel and what you want to look like. I seriously analyze myself everyday in the mirror, wishing I would've went bigger. While I have the projection from the side...I feel like I don't have enough volume and "boost" in the front/cleavage area. Granted we both probably look 100 times better than prior to surgery, but who wants to feel like you still have to wear a push up bra or one with padding to get the look that you originally wanted. So I most certainly know where you're coming from! You aren't alone. I wish I had more pics/updates on here to show you what I look like. Keep staying busy, girl! :)

Hey there. I just read your story. I have to admit that I think I am inlove with your boobs. They look perfect. I haven't had my surgery yet, I am going in on the 17th of s\September, but I changed my mind from 300CC to the max that my body can allow which is a 360CC yesterday when I went for my pre-op. Thank you though for this, cause now I don't feel like my implants will be too big. XoXo

My experience at Nordstrom's

I decided to mosey on down to the new Nordstrom's at my local mall. I was browsing through the lingerie section but not looking to try anything on. Then, I see a pretty bralette that catches my eyes. I think, well ok...why not?!?! I ask a nice lady at the dressing room if I can try it on. Meanwhile my friend is waiting outside the dressing room. I call her in to help me fasten the back. I hear the nice sales lady call out "can I help you with that bra?" I reluctantly say "ok". She pulls out a tape measure and measures me. She was astounded that I picked up a 34C. I told her that I like my bras loose. She said "honey, you are a 30" band bc she measured me 25" around my ribcage (holy moly!) Anyways, it gets more bizarre when she tells me to try on a 30DD and it fits but I'm busting out of it. It looks great but she said that I really need the next size up to cover up the cleavage bump. So, yes.. Let this day be declared a monumental time in history! I just got sized at Nordstrom's as a 30DDD!!!! Maybe size is irrelevant. Now, I'm not sure that perhaps I have a distorted body image.
LOL you definitely have a distorted body imagine. No way are your boobs B's. Your boobs are absolutely perfect .. I can only hope mine turn out as great! You in that bikini top? Damn! An oh if I had an ass like that; I would be the happiest woman alive. Congrats on the girls ... ENJOY!

Hey, My diameter was 10. 325cc is the highest I can go I. High profile. I am thinking about ultra high profile. Do you know anyone who has gotten them and they look good? I am freaking out.
Reply
It's up to how much tissue you do have ! I was 34 medium B or full B but saggy. And I ve had 325cc. Because I have enough tissue ( I think 3-4cm of tissue thicken) so I do it Above muscle , they are still look natural and huge on my statue 5'2 105lbs . If you have less tissue , about A for small B you should go bigger than me. To make sure when the swollen gone .it could be perfect size for you with no regret :)

Update...

I apologize for not responding to posts. I have been do busy looking for a new job and working on my artwork. So, to give y'all an update...I have emailed my PS office about my concerns with my implants not dropping or projecting as expected. In my last post, I was sized at a 30DDD but my breasts are still laying flat on my chest. It bothers me that I can put on a shirt and still look like I have nothing there. I'm considering switching to the teardrop shape implant in the future. I am a little frustrated bc I have asked about this style implant prior to my first surgery and they gave me no response. I said over and over that I don't want the overly round look and still they kept insisting on these implants. I was very clear about wanting moderately large breasts with a natural slope. Don't get me wrong, my Dr. Is great. I just felt like my desires were not communicated properly due to seeing a different nurse at every visit. Nevertheless, I'm gonna have to find work and save up money before I can get the results that I want. Till then, I'm loving life and feeling blessed!!!!
I have the bad boobie greed at times. It's frustrating for sure lol. But I think you look great with a nice size!! I didn't fully drop until the 6 month mark, to make me more impatient one dropped into place about a month post op and I had to wait 6 more months for the other, I'm hoping that's the case with you also.

I am sorry you didn't achieve the look you wanted but i must say you look great in the end! I was reluctant with the UHP but in the end your result was super beautiful!! However I understand the wish to have gone bigger! Maybe the next time when your body is ready you can do it! Definitely your PS can't put so much cc the first time!

I am sorry that you are continuing to struggle with this, but glad that you have found a positive outlook on everything. I think that you look beautiful, but I understand that it is about the look you wanted to achieve and didn't.

My new friend...the Nubra

Ive been wearing strapless bras for years with them uncomfortably falling down. The good thing about this bra is that it won't slip and I can wear it all night. The only bad thing is trying to take it off. Ouch! Is it weird that I have silicon inside and outside my body now?
You are so super cute! I love the silicone bra! This is hopeful_electric with a new profile since I was having some technical difficulties with my other account. Anyway, I think I am going to go with the 325cc Natrelle Style 20, but I am also going to see if I can go Mentor 325cc since it is actually SLIGHTLY larger. We will see. I will keep you posted! Oh I also have family that lives in Montgomery. That is close to the Woodlands isn't it? So weird.

Thank you sweetie! Good luck with your surgery! It sounds like your PS is really good and is gonna get you the look that you want. Montgomery is very close to where I live. Do you visit them often? If so, maybe we could meet up for lunch or something. XoXo

So where do you get that bra? I have a few strapless and I thought they wouldn't fall down now but they still do.

Five months and counting

I am starting to get a little paranoid about my pics being public online. I am considering editing them for privacy. Not that I'm a shy person but I wouldn't want anyone that I know to see them. Scary thought! Well, I have been experiencing rippling in my right Brest. I don't know what this means. Is that normal? Also, I'm having weird dreams about my breast implants rupturing and having to go through another surgery. I wish that I could stop worrying about them so much!

Size B or DDD?!?!

I'm at Walmart this afternoon doing some grocery shopping and come across the bra section. I decide to try on a cute bra size 34B. Well, it fits snug but I'm busting out of it. If I had to estimate what my "Real" bra size is, I would say small 34C. My goal size as y'all know was a mid-full C. Well, I can't say that my breasts are not a good "natural" size. The only thing that I wish going into this was what to be prepared for. I am not a fan of VS vanity sizing. I don't want to wear a 32DD just to feel better! I feel that my breasts are starting to fill out more. I don't feel as terrible about the size but if I want a slightly "fake" look, I need bigger implants. My reason for keeping my blog honest is that I want girls to know what to expect. So many girls have to get revisions due to wrong sizing. I just want to keep it "Real". If you are starting off a small A and want to completely fill a 32D/34C, you will most likely need larger implants! I want to thank everyone again for your kind comments and support. I'm starting to feel like "me" again.

Forgot to mention...

This may sound weird cause I've been going on and on about my breasts being too small. I'm noticing a lot of changes in them recently. They don't seem as tiny to me as before. Maybe I'm adapting to them. Starting to think that I might not need or want larger implants. Idk...
You look perfectly proportional to me but I understand boobs are a very individual thing. You can always go bigger in the future. ;) Glad you're getting a bit more comfortable with the size. Enjoy!!
Reply
Thank you BethH! I'm still adjusting to them. I did desire a more augmented look but these are not bad. Down the road, I will get my large "dream boobs". :)

Still undecided...

My breasts are filling out a little bit more but they are still not where I would like them to be. I've noticed my right breasts is slightly lower (the smaller implant) and my left is still not dropping. I think that bc they are both over my BWD, they are not dropping properly. I'm thinking that I may indeed have to get them exchanged if this doesn't correct itself. Going in for my post op in a few weeks. I will discuss with my PS the options. I am considering saline or anatomical teardrop shape. The UHP may be too visible since I have tight skin and these are almost boarder line too full in the upper pole region. Anyways, I seriously don't want to do this operation again but I don't want uneven boobs either.
hello girl you look amazing! Don't let others comments affect you. I had my BA 4 week ago. (5'5", 127lbs, 325cc, A cup before surgery) and felt like you because of people's comments. Soon I realize, they were expecting a porn star look because I spent too much money. you look beautiful, be confident.

and I wanted to add.....they don't look small at all. Perfect for your body frame ;)

Thanks girl!! Btw, your PS did a beautiful job! I know that I should not base my self confidence on what others say. I just wanted to feel sexy but I don't feel any different than before. I know that sounds crazy. I probably would not have gone through the surgery if I knew that I would feel this way after. I was more confident with my tiny A cups. Sad but true! :(

I simply just do NOT like them!!!

I've been trying really hard to adjust to my boobs but I cannot even look at them most days without wanting to cry. I know that this sounds dramatic but I really do HATE them. If I could use dome words to describe the way I feel: angry, depressed, embarrassed, ridiculous, anxious.... I feel frustrated when I look in the mirror and my butt sticks out so much further. I have lost weight too but I don't want to feel like I have to watch my weight just to look somewhat proportional. I am now way skinnier than I have been in years and I don't want to lose more weight! The good news is that I got a job and now I can save up money to correct this terrible mistake. Some days I wish that I could just have them out bc I feel way worse than I did before. Nevertheless, I am going to get them done again and hopefully this time will be right.
Don't be so hard on yourself! My friend - who has the best fakies I have ever seen - hated hers for a year. She said they were hard, high, and she wanted them out for almost twelve months after getting them. They are now pretty much perfect. Wait it out a little bit more and then decide :)

Did hers change a lot over a year? I know that some claim they get bigger while others say they shrink. I hope that mine will drop & fluff more cause my implant sits too high on my chest. I can give it more time to see if they change. Also, I need to save up money anyways before doing another surgery. Thanks for your encouragement...I will stay hopeful :)

I'm here for you if you need to vent. I understand completely how you feel. I still go days thinking I can be ok and others when I so desperately feel unhappy with them. They're just not what I wanted even though others think that they are fine. We are the ones that look in the mirror. One day I'm going to change mine too. Biggest hugs shelly xoxo

What you see is what you get!

I feel compelled to warn girls out there to please not ask doctors on this site or any others how many cc's you need to achieve a certain bra size. You will get 10 different answers and it is impossible for a PS to recommend a size without examining you in person. It is ok to ask them other questions though. Augmented breasts measure much larger but look smaller than natural breasts. Also, don't rely on comparing similar body types with size. Everyone is unique and there are too many factors affecting how an implant will look on YOU. Just bc "Sue noname" got the same style, size implant and similar stats and ended up a 32DD does not mean that you will too. Just rely only on your surgeon and what you see in the mirror is LESS than what you will end up with. If I can save one person from having to get a revision due to size by saying this then I am happy. I don't want anyone to feel regret like I do. I'm planning on going in again to discuss my implant exchange. I'm very excited at the idea of not having to wear a push up or padded bra anymore. Xoxo
you're totally right, it's almost impossible to know how many cc's it will take for the look you wanna get. you only know once you're on the other end, and it depends on your surgeon's will and talent whether or not you got it or not. personally, i would've never guessed that i needed 1000cc to get a look similar to most 500~600cc i see out there, and i didn't know i'd end up needing 4 surgeries to get there. i read in your other comment that you're thinking about overfilled salines to stay within your BWD, well if there is one thing that is 99% certain, it's that overfilled salines give the fakest look possible of all implants, so if you don't like your current upper pole, don't even think about these! anatomical implants, on the other hand, are indeed a good option to explore!

Thanks daPhie79! I can't wait until my appointment on Friday. Just thinking that I can feel better about my body gives me hope. You're right that it is all trial and error to a certain degree. I have really tight skin so maybe that is why they are not fluffing properly. I was thinking saline bc of how much larger they look. Btw, I love how full & natural yours turned out. I think you have mod profile though...so if I am stuck with high profile, it might not have the same look. Idk. I'm gonna talk to my PS about anatomicals. They favor the UHP style 45's but I'm just afraid that with my tight skin, the implant will be completely visible on top as they give a more pushed-up effect. Anyways...I'm happy that you finally got your wish boobs despite all the issues tha you had to deal with. I hope that my next operation is my last for a while. Xoxo

I am glad to hear excitement, and dare I say happiness, in your post. I personally think your breast are beautiful, but regardless of what others think of them, they are yours and you are the one that has to live with them. If you aren't happy with them, then it's as simple as that. Let me offer you a word of advise, if you have any qualms about anything going into your revision, follow up on it. Don't be so excited to be having it done that you ignore those feelings as I did. Good luck with whatever decision you make.

Dr. Kim and her staff are real professionals. I just had my surgery today so I know it's kinda soon to review. My experience before and during surgery was a positive one. I felt like I was in good hands the whole time. I am so happy that my friend recommended them.
