400cc Silicone Breast Implants - Love Them!

I am now 2 weeks post-surgery (under muscle) and recovery has been great. I had my surgery on Friday 2/12 and was back in work the following Tuesday.

I originally was planning on 350cc and switched to 400cc a few weeks before the surgery. I was a 36A, now a full C, small D. I'm 5'9, 150 pounds (age 49); run marathons (will probably run half-marathons, I hope, now).

Now that the swelling has gone down, wished that I had gone a little bigger. It's true - you get used to it (very quickly). I bought the Purlz try-on's prior, to get a feel for what it would be like and felt it was well worth it. I also think that before/after pictures can tell you a lot about the surgeon (as well as recommendations).

My surgeon and everyone who works in his office were wonderful. I also had a lot of confidence in the Dr. who referred him to me. He also had the best before/after photos of anyone on the web that I had viewed prior.

Hi there! It totally depends on your body. If you go on a few consultations, doctors will be able to give you a good idea of what size implants you'd need. Here's a good post on choosing the right size for you.

Do you have before/after pictures? I was a 36AA and had 450 CCs put in and I am only a B cup now. I'm 1.5 weeks post op and disappointed. Did yours look big right away, or get bigger as they dropped. Mine still have a lot of dropping left I'm sure. I am 5'10'' and 150 lbs. I just thought they would be a lot bigger then this. Any in sight? Thanks!!!

It's been 4 and a half years and I'm still happy with my decision. Glad I did not go any larger than 400 cc. I'm recently not running for other reasons (knee issues), but can say that I ran 3-5 days/week from 5-7 miles and a long run of 10 miles on the weekends without any issues. I also bike and swim and it's never been a problem. Also haven't noticed any sagging (which I worried about). I was professionally fitted for a bra about 6 mos post and am a 36 DDD (difficult to find that size) so I wear a 38 DD. Your surgeon is your best person to advise you as far as size. Wish you all the best in whatever you decide!
