Thought for a long time it was a lost cause....but I'm very happy now :)

Well hello:) I'm scheduled for my breast...

Well hello:)

I'm scheduled for my breast enlargement next week... I've been thinking about getting one for I think almost forever...Well, I'm kidding, but my brother used to make fun of me and I've always been very self conscious about the fact that I had almost nothing. Not that it impeded me meeting guys and having boyfriends, but I never felt really comfortable going around in a bikini, underwear or worse, naked, in front of people because of it.

Then I had my daughter and breastfed her. It didn't help my case at all! LOL! Now I feel like I really don't have anything to show! And the worse part is that I got separated over a year and a half ago. I did meet some guys, but I don't especially like getting naked in front of people now because of the way they look.

This is why I decided to have my breast done. It will be 350 cc silicone high profile implants placed under the muscle. I feel like I will maybe feel more like a woman now since I always felt there was a part missing.

One last thing... I'm a bit anxious and very excited because they have moved my date from the 11th of July to the 3rd.... It's coming so fast! LOL! It's a good thing though, it gives me less time to be anxious! hehe:)

I'm hoping this will be a good thing. It will be nice to have a self confidence boost after what I've lived for a year and a half that's for sure!

P.S. My first language is French, so please forgive my mistakes if there are some :)

Hey:)

I'm sorry. I had to post new pistures because the other ones made me look like I was on the heavier side and it was bugging me...LOL! I'm actually 5 feet and 100 pounds so let's say I didn't like it one bit!

I guess I'm like many...I can only think about the breast augmentation these days...Tuesday can't come soon enough! I know it will hurt, but it will be done!

Good night to everyone!

My operation is in two days and I had to go to the doc's last week because I had something like strep throat... I'm still a bit under the weather, but I'm on penicillin now. The doc told me it's fine...I just hope everything will go well on Tuesday!

I have to keep myself busy these days because I only think about the surgery. I'm going out with friends tonight...I guess I'll be the DD, I can't drink anyway! LOL!

Have a good day!

I know the feeling. All I do all day is look at before and after photos. I am still in the deciding phase on what size. I have my surgery in 2 weeks and 2 days. Not soon enough.

Hi girls,

Today I'm 4 days post op. I can't say my recovery is hard, it's very manageable. I slept every night and I stopped taking the Tylonel 3s yesterday. My only problem was that I was very constipated, but it's okay now. I,m still a bit bloated though. I started my periods yesterday so i guess that doesn't help! LOL! I know TMI.... ;)

I'm a bit concerned about how my breast looks though... I hope they get better! I've posted some pics so you can see. They look conical and there is a bulge on top of them. I can't say I'm in love with them right now...it's kind of sad...

Hey girly!!! Congrats on your boobies. They look great! So glad I helped u in any way :) Now that my crazy ride is slowing down, its really cool to be able to help other women. Ya guys only think they kno! hahah Hes kinda right tho. Its a new lesson in patience :) Sucks but def worth the wait. Take care and take it easy. Better to suffer now then endure more pain and healing cuz you do too much in begginning. Did that a few times and set me back lik 3-5 days each time in first month and half. Listen to your body. :) Good luck on your journey!!! xoxox

Hi Jeme,
Just read your update and saw your pics.
I wouldnt worry about your shape right now b/c your implants are still really high and havent fallen into where your natural breast tissue is. They will look so much different once they get there. Be patient! I know it's hard...but the bright side is that your surgery is over and done with!
You're half way there. =)

Hi:)

Today I'm 12 days post op and I like my new boobies better and better! They still have dropping and fluffing to do but they look more normal now which is good because I was scared at first and I was wondering what I had done... I'm meeting my surgeon on Wednesday and I'll be sure to asl all the questions I have about that though :)

I posted some new pics. Maybe it will give some hope to some woman one day when going through something similar! hehe :) I can say that I look really good in a bikini though ;)

Have a good day!

Hi Lucky:) Actually my surgeon chose to place it under the muscle because my breast was so small. Apparently that's what they often do when there isn't much to work with. I was a 34A and very deflated. I'm glad my post is hlping a bit! As for the recovery, it's getting better every day!

Hi, you look great ! I'm planning mine in September. May I know why you choose the implants to be placed under the muscle ? I understand having them placed under muscle will have a natural look but it takes longer time to heal. I'm still in the deciding phase.
Your post and pictures really helps. Thanks :) Wishing you a speedy recovery. :)

Me too! I now have one that is settling faster, seems like that is quite normal based on others stories. Hopefully the other breast catches up! Take care!

Hi girls,

I saw my surgeon yesterday... My right breast is still higher than the left and my natural breast has some problems adjusting to sitting on top of the implants. I had very small saggy breast so now I have some sagging on top of the implants and it seems like I'm getting some snoopy in there...He did mention I might consider another surgery eventually but also told me to wait for 6 moths and see if my breast would simply adjust to the implants so the snoopy could go away on it's own... Let's hope so...I cried just thinking about the possibility of having another surgery... :(

Anway, if anyone is reading this while considering getting a BA, I would ask more questions about my natural breast before the actual surgery. Women that have some constriction or dense breast tissue might get weird results after the BA. Sometimes it goes on it's own, but often a lift or other types of interventions might be needed during the initital surgery or, worse case scenario, in a second surgery. It is true that if you don't have a perfect shape before, the implants won't give you a perfect shape after...

Anyway, wishing a great day to everyone!

Thanks for the update, it is great to see your progress. Just give yourself a few weeks... How is your right breast coming along?

Hi:) Thanks for trying to cheering me up. I admit, I'm having a very bad day today....Up to the point where I hate them and am wondering why I was so stupid as to pay so much money for something like that... I can't do anything right now...except trying to stop thinking about it and especially not look at them. I'm kind of mad at my surgeon too...but that's another can of worms... Sorry for being such a Debbie Downer... I hope I will have something good to say about them eventually :)

I a review by benevolentchell, she had hers about the same time as you I think...and she is high too. I have not had mine yet but that seems to happen in most cases. I am sure they will change a ton. Have patience. In a month you will be happy!

Hi,

I'm over 6 weeks post op now... and I met my surgeon on Wednesday. There is still the possibility of another surgery next year... My natural breast doesn't adapt very well, which forms a snoopy, or double bubble if you prefer, above the implant. It's due to sagging of the natural breast and because I have dense breast tissue. My breast does look better and the surgeon still hopes that since it's not VERY noticeable, that it will go on it's own.

I can actually say that if both breasts looked like the left one, I would consider leaving them this way, but my right breast is still tighter and needs to fluff, so the natural breast sags even more over the implant...

I guess I'll have to wait and see:) It's not all that bad though and they look more natural now so at least I don't feel like hiding all the time! I've even ventured into going braless in public! LOL! I never ever did that before:)

I posted new pics :)

Have a good night!

Wow you look wonderful, i had to go back and really look hard to see the double bubble you are talking but that is forming. I guess i can see a little difference in the bell curve on the bottom, but honestly it cukd just be the way many womens breasts lay. Irs not perfect but no one's is. I in a year you might be happy and adjusted to your new look...another surgery is fairly invasive for what looks to me like natural shape, my two cents. they look so soft and swinging! Wonderful update!

Thanks:) it shows a bit more on pics from the side...which I had posted....but that don't appear...weird... The website doesn't update the date of my updates neither...Oh well:)
I know, this website drives me crazy sometime!
Well the good thing is that double bubble is fixable.
Your boobies look pretty good otherwise, and with a bikini on- I am sure noone can tell. Mine are lopsided which you can see in a bikini, Not so nice!
I would like to see the profiles if you can get the to appear. =)

Hi,

well it's almost been three months now... I saw my surgeon again on Wednesday...Now he says we shouldn't touch them again and that I should just live with the way my boobs are. If both were like my left one, I wouldn't mond, but the right one still looks weird...

Someone on this site said that this procedure is not for the faint of heart....I'd agree, the waiting to see what they will really be like is the worse!

Anyway, I've updated with a pic from before and two pics now... I still think that I made the right choice with having the procedure...I just wish they'd look more normal...

Have a good day!

It's been a while since I updated... I can say it's been SO MUCH better since I last updated! My left boob is starting to settle more, and I can say that I can live with now. So I decided that I was not going to have another surgery.

I'm soooo happy about my choice now:) I'm wishing everyone the same outcome!

I am having mine done on the 21st and I have a similar shape to you. I think your breasts look great!!!!!!! I am so anxious, thank you for posting such great pics!

Hey:) Thanks...They do look better now :) Hang in there because it's quite an adventure! LOL! I can definitely say that it was worth it, but trust me, there were moments I thought I had made the biggest mistake EVER! Everyone heals differently and even they are two different operations...so they don't heal at the same pace at all sometimes! It can be frustrating....but in the end you have to trust that you will heal:) Good luck and I wish you GREAT results and a fast recovery!
Hi jeme, I understand what you're saying about the right breast. It does look a bit snoopy or double bubblish. My outcome is similar.  I had a very small, saggy B cup. Now am a full C. My right breasts looks fine, but the left has a small indentation underneath, especially when raising my arms. However, I am sooo much happier now than pre-op!!!!  Confident enough to take off my shirt and feel pretty and don't have to wear ugly padded bras anymore. Yayyyy ...LOL  (you look pretty good so don't worry about a revision.)

It's been 7 months since my BA... I've been trough a lot....and looking back at my pics I can say I would be mortified if my breast had stayed the way they were....

The right one is still not perfect, but I still notice changes in it even after all that time :)

If you're reading this after just having your BA done and don't like the results, I'd just say wait and see....They CAN and PROBABLY will get better :)

I attached one pic so you can see....

Wishing a great night to everyone :)

Hi, your results look great - very natural and what a transition! Thank you for sharing your story so far out from your surgery. I've been very pleased with my process thus far but notice at 8 weeks, my right side is not dropping like my left. My doctor says early stages everything looks great but I read so many different opinions about dropping that I can not help but wonder if its something else. Your story was great to read. Thanks again!
