Hi ladies, I'm 24, 105lbs, 5'3, just thinking about getting boobies like 5 months ago, and I'm getting them :)..Just got my consultation with dr Landon yesterday, and made appointment for the pre-opp on Mar 4th, so excited, and I have to study too so timing is pretty tight, it's also because I need to take vacation before May or I have to wait for a loooong time lol..

I posted the before picture, I am now 32A and look good in VS miraculous bra but like everybody else I want to fit those non padded bras lol :-P I also posted pic of the goal i am looking for, I asked PS for a big C, and about between 375 to 400cc saline, but he thinks they're too big on me..but on pre-opp they will put me to the 3D machine..so hopefully I'll be able to convince him haha..

btw this is the first time I post sthg like this on website so excuse my bathing suit, i'm still shy :-s

I wonder where my post is..I couldn't locate it

Soooo, less than 2 more weeks till my pre-op,...

Soooo, less than 2 more weeks till my pre-op, excited!! They have the 3D imagine for sizers too hopefully he is willing to go at least 375cc for me! I am trying to balance betweek working 4 days a week, studying, and actively doing research online, but most of time I still got distracted and sneak on this website first of all to say hello to the ladies!! then update their photos, most of you ladies are recovering so fast and the result turn out amazing!

I am also worrying a little bit about the work at my job...My ps said you don't have to take 2 weeks off, you can go back to work whenever you feel good, but he doesn't know in the end of the night, we servers have to move tables and chairs around to clean up the floor too! maybe I should stay at home for 2 weeks then pay somebody to move tables for me =) =) well that is actually one of my concerns...

Next thing is the complications of course.. well i guess since we agree to make a change means we have to accept it right? however anybody have any tips to prevent? I looked up online they say smoking is 1 of reasons could cause capsular contracture ( everybody worries about this right?), but i don't smoke...but I drink cocktails and white wine pretty much every weekend going out with bf..is that real bad or do I need to stop before or after surgery or anything? Looking forward for your answer my dear friends
Hey!! My pre op is in exactly 2 weeks from today and my surgery is on the 20th!! AHHH!! I cant wait!

Alright, time has went pretty fast to me since I'm so busy with homework and work! but one more week is my pre-op! and 4 weeks after that is big day! yay! Dear ladies, I have concern about the recliner, I don't have it right now at my apartment, but do I really NEED it? any of you ladies didn't sleep on recliner did you guys have a harder time to recover or drop?? please let me know so I can buy one! and usually how long do you need it??

Also, what kind of stretch mark cream do you put on before the surgery? let me know the one that really helps on your skin plzz!! Thank you so much lovers!!

PS: I marked today is the day I stop drinking any kind of alcohol and completely stop smoking the green maryjane!
Hi! Congrats on your decision! I didn't sleep in a recliner, and we do have 2 in our bedroom! I got a big lounger pillow, they have them at bed bath & beyond or walmart for around $20. Then I could use it in bed or take it out to the couch. I did use bio oil for stretch mark when I was pregnant, it was great, but I didn't get any with my BA. I have been using mederma on my scars since 3 weeks post op when she cleared me too. It helps the scars heal better. I use vitamin E oil on them too. Deciding on size is the hardest part! I'm 5' 5" 118 lb & I got 400cc HP silicone unders. I was hoping for a full C. I'm 6 1/2 weeks post op, I just went & got sized & bought bras on Friday & I'm a 32C, D if it's a demi cup. Very happy with how things have turned out! Good luck with everything!

Thank you so much girl this helps a lot!! Good idea about the pillow put on the bed so I can save couple hundred! And you are 3" taller than me it makes a different with size too, I'm glad you love how it turned out now! I can't wait to see mine and I really like the look of 375 cc ;-)

I'm 5'3 and 105 too!! I can't wait to see your pics I'm also afraid of going too big as well as too small! It's so frusterating not knowing how big it small they will be. It's a huge secret too so going too big would be bad for disguising purposes!! Haha

Sooooo, pre op went good and everything, bf was in the room with me too for another set of ear, and questions! Everything was excited until they did the 3D imagine for me and by the weight 103 and height 5'3 the computer suggested 275cc Moderate, I was like whattt, nooo, lets try bigger in Mod Plus please, we did it and they suggested ab 325cc I think, and these pictures are 325cc Mod plus, and I think they still look small! I mean come on, you know they look small right?!

So I just emailed the patient coordinator and ask her to make another appointment to see the ps and tell him I want bigger, and ask him if I could handle 375cc on me, do you ladies think so?

Anybody tells me how to edit the previous post...

Anybody tells me how to edit the previous post plz, I can't do that, is it because I'm using iPad mini or its just generally can't edit like that.
Hey xmasbabe! Our stats are pretty close to each other. I'm 5'2" 110lbs and am getting silicone; 300cc on right breast and 325cc on my left. What cc have you settled with? As for cream, Im using cocoa butter to help with stretch marks...it's the same lotion I used when I was pregnant for both of my boys. Someone also mentioned to buy desitin for times when you can potentially chafe the sides of your arms against the bandages. To help minimize bruising and swelling, I purchased Arnica (I bought it in Whole Foods for $6.20) and I'm also purchasing bromelain (online)...similar to Arnica where it should help with swelling, inflammation and bruising. No harm in trying right? Capsules of vitamin E also help with stretch marks. Keep in mind that it may not work for everyone but it has for me, thus far. Once I apply Arnica cream, I then place a cold compress on the top of my chest...feels heavenly!! Now there are various types of Arnica out there; some come in oil, ointment, cream and also tablets. Hope everything goes smoothly for you on your upcoming surgery! Once I woke up from surgery yesterday, I felt slight pain which the nurse was very quick to inject medication through my IV. The biggest thing that was uncomfortable for me was the large amount of pressure I felt on my chest. It was similar to having my boys just sitting on my chest, but I then took valium and percocet which helped relieve the pressure. It wasn't as painful as I had expected, just pressure. Keep us posted and let me know if you have any questions or would just like to chat! Best of luck!!

Thank you for ur recommendation ! I bought palms coco butter oil to rub on the skin, it's so smooth and smell good! I have to look for arnica since everybody here been talking about this! Happy healing!! Post lots if pictures plzzz :-)

So I caught a cold for almost a week, and I'm still coughing! Hopefully it's over soon because 2 more weeks till my BA, if I keep coughing like this I couldn't have them done right? It's gonna be awful when you have BA and coughing at same time? Sad face...

I also have been on so many cold meds and my head is a little everywhere so I couldn't drive very well and have to take off from work today for recovering..and now my bf got a cold from me too, I'll be so mad if my BA get delay my ladies...
Holy crap, I had the same thing happen to me a couple weeks prior to my BA! Lol, I was worried about the same thing. Keep chugging water, get plenty of rest; vitamin c, herbal tea...hope you get better soon!
Reply
Really? That sucks so bad because I'm okay when standing up or sit up but start coughing again when laying down, which is bad bc I need to lay down a lot after BA, now just hoping its going away soon..and yes I mostly drink so much cuz I lost my taste, food become to light to me to eat lol..but yea have to drink more tea and Vitamin C..anything I'm taking right now is bad for the BA? I'm taking Airborne, mucinex, and honey lemon Lipton tea

Six more days ladies!! I'm still coughing here and there during the day :-(

My only concern right now is, any lady that overworking or overdoing everything with your arms and chest muscle after 2 weeks, please let me know how bad the result is after that day, or tell me if is it really bad for your breast if you have to walk and work too much? ANYBODY HAS EXPERIENCED THAT FEELING, plzzz let me know, it's really important to me. thanks. :-)
I was your size pre op. Beaware of the complications that can happen as I thought they couldn't happen to me. I personally reget my decision, hope you have better luck.

I'm sorry to hear..does it painful right now at the feeling? And what are you going to do ab it?

Hi ladies, today is going to be my last day I need to buy everything I need, and say goodbye to my boobs :)

Have to stop eating drinking after midnight tonight, and wake up at 6:15 get ready and have to be there at 7:30 omg it's getting real, I couldn't believe it, like I just went to work for the whole weekend and today I have to clean up the house, and get ready for the early morning! Just wish I could sleep good tonight at least!

Further more I am going to stack up pillows together to sleep in the bed instead of recliner, anybody has problem sleeping like that or any tip? Thanks ladies plz pray for me :) :)
Goodluck!! I did what you are planning to do. Instead of sleeping on the couch I just bought two extra pillows. Idk how to explain it but here is my set up http://imgur.com/0Wfb43w Basically laying back at a 45 degree angle. Its uncomfortable but I managed.. I also just stuff my blanket under my arms since I was told to elevate it. But to be honest my arms feel fine and I didnt really do so..
Reply
It's comfy looking actually, except I don't have those mini pillow, instead I have huge one from bed bath n beyond..wish me luck :)
Reply
Good luck!!! Can't wait to hear how it goes :):) for your sleeping situation I did that same thing n it can be comfy but gets kind of irritating.. Keep a pillow under your knees.. It will help relieve pressure on your back and keep you from sliding down while you sleep :) xXxXx

I'm at home doing good now..so happy I'm on the other side...I have No Stretch Mark! How awesome is that! I posted pics 2 hours after surgery..I couldn't look inside yet but the cleavage, curve are awesome, no pain at all just tightness..

So I went to the center at 7:30, the nurse went over some info and my beloved bf decided to wait for me to get out at 10am..they walked me in the room, get change, socks on, then they put warm blanket over me. Then I got IV in, surgeon came in marked on me and said he will tell my bf information ab my implants since I won't remember, I Got 340cc saline I think both sides I'm happy with the size cuz I'm tiny 5'3 and 95lbs now after being sick.

Then we walked me to operation room and I get nervous, anesthesia nurse inject the drug into my IV then I feel high haha I still remember she said " you have the restaurant and I have this awesome drug" then I said "bring ur drug to my restaurant and we'll throw a party" all of them laughed and Bam I was gone.

Waking up, I already have my shirt on but not sweat pants, I tried to wear it but I can't so they helped me..They wheeled me out and my bf was already pull up the car to the back so it's pretty privacy!

Going home was so sleepy I couldn't keep my eyes open, but I can't sleep either so pretty much close my eyes but know everything happening around...I am right now watching tv, gosh I made so many mistake spelling but I have auto correct! I will update later..,

My first post op is next Monday..but I will take off my bra out tonight or tmr so I can have a better view...doctor said he will call me tonight to check on me.

Thank you ladies for all the support .. Happy healing!!

POD 1- feeling much better than yesterday after surgery...not watching and falling asleep at the same anymore lol...

I take 1 and a half Percocet in every 3.5 hours still to keep my muscle loosing and I can raise my hand today a little bit, but lest hand is harder to raise than right hand, however, the area below my nipples are numb, especially right boob more numb than left, anybody tell me if that's normal?? Or should I call the office again?

Other than that, my healing process seams easy to me, just the tightness that I expect. Anybody knows where can I buy the surgical white bra in the pictures? They just give me one and I need some more... Thanks ladies, you guys been awesome!

Gosh, last night was the worst, I kept taking Percocet without eating anything, I even double it,,and boy I threw up 6 times in a row everytime I woke up from a quick nap :( :(

So we can my ps at 1am and he said stop taking it if I feel sick in my stomach and couldn't eat anything, cuz it's also the reason why I puked. Then he allowed me to switched to Tylenol and I feel better now... The pain scale is 2/10 I just called them again and they said I should be over the worst 2 days, phew...

Massage is not fun guys...my left boob under armpit is more hurt than right one, massage it is more difficult to me, anybody experience it? But they tell me I have to massage anyway grr...

Anyways I'm feeling hungry again...c ya!

Pod4- today feel better, I get to study for school, eat better, but breasts feel like explode today, they feel so big, tight and ready to explode anybody has this feeling, tell me how long this last?
Last night I tried to push 2 boobs together which I wasn't supposed to on day 4 post op, and after that my right sternum hurts so bad, it's like sharp pain and sting when I bend down or cough. I called the nurse( I call them almost everyday!) and she said I don't need all those massage right now and I think I must rip the muscle further than I suppose to and she said it will subside after couple days...omg can't wait for that to happen!

Other than that, everything else is fine, I can write essay now, change to the non front zip bra hope they don't mind. Anybody wears ur own bra after couple days post op that is not the surgical bra ur doctor gave you? Is it okay to you? I added more pics today to show you the bra I'm talking about.
Hey you look amazing!!!

It's been 8 months!!

It's been 8 months and I have nothing to complain about. Go for it ladies!
How do you like the saline I want silicone for more of a natural feel but you said your saline was super soft!??? Wahhh!! That's awesome!! I just feel more comfortable getting saline and also because I'm not 22 so the FDA doesn't approve them for me which also worries me! A lot of the pics I see and end up really liking also turn out to be saline! Yours look so natural and good too so that makes me a little less confused. It's just hard to choose saline with the whole rippling and hard feeling rumors! But yours are gorgeous! Xoxo!!!
Reply
Thank you so much itsforhappiness!! And yes they are very soft, I think because I never forget to massage them at least twice a day still! And my friend who has silicone also felt mine and said " are you sure that the doctor didn't put silicone in yours instead of saline!!" Lol well I bet not because they are soft however I can feel rippling when I reach my fingers far down inside ( they are not invisible)!! I am very very happy with my result as saline :)
Reply
The rippling isn't visible??? I'm so happy you like your saline! I would just feel safer if I knew I had saline in there instead of silicone. My only concern was the feeling of saline but you just totally helped me make up my mind! And yours look great! Thank you so much!! Xoxox!!!

It's been 1 year ladies!!

It's been 1 year since last April, and my result is still flawless :"> :">
I really love your results! I'm getting my BA in July and I'm so excited. I'm thinking 350-375cc but seeing your results at 340cc is making my decision even harder. I'm still stuck on cc sizes and not sure. My stats are 4'9, 110lbs currently a small B bra size. Any suggestions??
Reply
Yes! If ur doctor lets you go 350-375 go for it! 375 is my dream size but since my breasts were A size before, I didn't have enough skin to cover so the doctor didn't let me go that far! I always wanted 375 but now I get used to my "natural" 340 it won't bother me either! So go bigger girl! And good luck to you!! Let me know if you have any question! :)
Reply
Do you feel top heavy? Or is it just perfect on you? I am looking at different pics and some 375 cc looks fine, but some looks so big and some 350cc looks fine, but also too big....I don't know...I'm just stuck.
