doing great 2 weeks out

I am 39 years old and I have been dreaming about...

I am 39 years old and I have been dreaming about this day for a very VERY long time!! I have 2 beautiful daughters. I breast fed my first for over 1 year! I despise shopping for bras and I do not like wearing a bikini unless it has great padding!

I am a 36b a little droopy and very deflated! I finally decided to do something for MYSELF! I am a dedicated wife, mother, daughter, sister, and auntie. I love to do for others, but its my time now! I will turn forty in January, and this is my Birthday gift from myself!

Heehee On November 26th I will have 410cc silicone gel teardrop implants placed over my muscle, along with a cresent lift. I am not nervous at all, I am excited more then anything!! The countdown is on! 2 weeks and 1 day to go!!! :)))

Awesome, I bet they will look and feel wonderful. What size are you wanting to reach? I love the tear drop look. Why over the muscle? Is it better that way?

I would like to be a full C, ....maybe a small D. I just don't want too look fake, or heavy. My ps suggested the teardrops because he thought they would look most natural on me, and give me the best results with my lift. Same reason he is going subglandular. I will be 40 in January!!! ;))

I heard that teardrop is not done anymore, it can shift and rotate in the pocket, causing weird shape to the breast...

I'm thinking I will get 445cc's now instead of 410cc's. I'm so worried about being dissappointed if the 410cc's are too small! If anyone has had either size and has pictures please message me! :)
My surgery is on November 28... I'm very scared of post surgery pain though.. what do you think, is it really bad, I don't know anyone who's done breast augmentation...

If you are concerned with pain then you can also look for a doc who does the rapid recovery or 24 hour recovery. My doc does it but does not call it that as it was someones "invention." I did not have to take any pain pills after my BA. But really, it is all bearable and either way you will be fine. What state are you in?

My sugery is 1 week tomorrow!!!! I'm soo excited,...

My sugery is 1 week tomorrow!!!! I'm soo excited, but my nerves are beginning to kick in a little! After much researching, and advice from others on this forum, I have changed my mind about getting the anatomical implants (teardrop shaped), and decided to get the round shape instead. I also am going to talk to my ps this week about sudmuscular placement, (instead of subglandular) and the cresent lift, (which I have read only negative things about!) My ps is going to think I'm nuts,..... I am going against EVERYTHING he suggested for me!!! Oh well!!! $13000 is a lot to pay, and have less than desired results!!! If he is upset with me I can take my business somewhere else! I only met him once at my consult, the second time I went I didn't even get to talk to him! Is that normal? I'm wondering if I choose the right surgeon for me............ugh
Hope it all went well. Update when you can. xx

Hi Jensey, Another thing to consider is depending on if you are only needing a minor lift, you could get the augmentation first and then reevaluate for a lift later. A few girls have done that and were glad they did. That way the doc can see exactly how much needs to be removed. Just something to think about. I am sure we are all overwhelming you with our advice. Just remember that even though we all have learned something from our experiences, we can be wrong and ultimately we aren't the ones who went to medical/plastic surgery school. Do your research and figure out for yourself if your docs suggestions are what is best for you. Google is your best friend. =)

scrappy, I also thought I might need a lift, but my doctor said he didn't think I would, so he just did the implants. He did say that if I did need one, at round 6 months post-op is when I would be able to tell. Generally though, if a lift is really needed, he would do it before doing the implants. I don't want a lift and at this point I am satisfied with my results. I look better in a clothes and in a swimsuit now, so that's all that matters to me. The only person that is going to see me naked is my husband, and he doesn't care if my nipples aren't centered perfectly in the middle of my breast. I keep reminding myself that there is no such thing as "perfect" breasts, but you also need to be happy with the outcome. Jensy, good luck with all of your decisions and your surgery.

So I had my meeting today with my PS. He spent a good hour with me, and I left feeling so much better and confident about my surgery!!! ?? I'm having an augmentation, no lift!! I opted away from the anatomical implants and went with round, high profile. He still thought it was best for me to go over the muscle. This is because I am a little droopy, and over the muscle with help fill me out, without having to do a lift!! As far as size goes, I tried on 400 and 450 sizers and wanted to go with something in between, so my PS choose 435cc's. I'm a bit worried they might look too big, but I would rather them a little big than not big enough! I just hope and pray they will look okay and proportionate with my body! I can hardly wait!!!! Yay me!!!
Hi!! I went over the muscle, 350 cc left and 375 cc right. they are also HP. and I love the results. I was a 34B (barely) before and am now a 36D or 34DD. Remember you are going over the muscle so you are not going to lose any size. I think I went the perfect size. :) they are soft and natural. Good luck!!!

Its the night before my surgery! My sister is picking me up at 4:45am! I have to be at the hospital, (which is a little more than an hour away), at 6:15. Ugh! I don't think I will be sleeping much tonight! Surgery is at 8am! I a little bit nervous, but mostly excited! I'm looking forward to having 6 weeks off work! 435cc silicone overs is what I finally decided on! That was the toughest decision I had to make in this entire process! I have no idea what size I will be! I'm thinking a full C. :). Thank you ALL for your kind words, support and all the great information you share on this site! I will update as soon as I can!! XO
Yay! So excited for you! See you on the other side, post when you can!

I had my long awaited surgery this morning!...

I had my long awaited surgery this morning! Everything went perfect! I woke up shivering, and teeth chattering, but not too much pain so far! It feels like I have pulled muscles in my chest. Pain has been tolerabel. I have some bruising, but not surprising, as I bruise fairly easily. I woke up after my surgery at 10:30, and haven't slept since! I've been taking a percocet every 4 hours, I'm thinking I may take 2 at bedtime to help me sleep and rest comfortably! I am sooo happy everything went well! I know I have a bit of a road ahead, but I love what I see so far! ?? I'm looking forward to taking my bandages off to shower, on wednesday, so I can have a better look at the girls! Update soon!
Beautiful!!!

Feeling well and doing great! I'm slowly weening myself of my prescription pain meds. They are quite upsetting to my tummy! I still take one before bed, to help me get some comfortable sleep! I normally sleep on my belly, so its been difficult. I know I can't sleep that way, but does anyone know if its okay to sleep on my side? I woke up that way lastnight!
My boobies look good so far, of coarse I think I should have gone a little bigger!! They are a nice size though! They are sooo hard and tight, really strange to feel them like that! Does anyone know if once they drop and fluff do they look much different? Shape and size? I'm hoping they won't look small! I LOVE that I can actually see some cleavage happening!! That's definately a new wonder for me!!! My nipples look big, and stretched. I hope they will look more normal once the swelling subsides. I feel I look the same as I did preop, (wearing padded bras) in clothes, but ....I tried on a few bathing suit tops (which I would never wear, because I didn't fill them out!) ..and boy oh boy...haha...I am almost spilling out of a couple of them!! I LOVE how they look! I have no regrets and no horror stories to tell...I am thankful and estatic I finally have my boobies!!! ??? Merry Christmas to MEEEE!!! Yay!
I didnt notice anyone saying- but my nipples were bigger after BA. I have seen that on a few other girls as well. So no, I dont think that will shrink. As far as breast size, shrinking will be based on how much you are swollen. When you drop and fluff you may notice them get a little bigger too. Consider it a rollercoaster ride! Lol

Well, I'm day 10 post op and I'm feeling great....

Well, I'm day 10 post op and I'm feeling great. The new girls are still sitting high, and feeling hard, but they are not sore to touch. I'm so sick of my surgical bra, I bought 2 new wireless, Wonder Bras today. They are so much more comfortable! I tried on quite a few bras, and I fit nicely into a D. I love my new boobies so far, but I think I would have liked them better if I had gone a little bigger! I 435cc's, maybe 475cc's would have filled my sides out a little more! I'm sure they will look a lot different as they drop and fluff! Maybe fuller at the side? I keep having shooting pains in my breasts, from what I have read, I think it is just a part of the healing process! I wake up in the morning very sore and stiff, but feel better as the day goes on. I'm off all meds, and have been for a few days. I find when I do too much, I definately pay for it later. I get sore and achy. I have my first post op appointment next week, I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping he will take the tape strips off my incisions! I will post some new pictures soon!
Our stats are very similar. I am interested to see more pics of how yours turn out. My surgery is Oct. 28. Counting down the days!
