The natural look!! feeling great 10 months post op!! :)

I'm scheduled for a BA in less than a month.....

I'm scheduled for a BA in less than a month.. Starting to feel pretty apprehensive about it. I'm a 34A, breastfed 4 babies, and I'd like just a little boost... To a 34B. I'm actually pretty darn terrified of going any bigger. I like have small breasts for practical (working out) reasons, but I want them to be cute and feminine. Anybody else scared that your PS is planning bigger implants than your comfortable with? I'm thinking 225cc or less, and he's thinking 275cc. I'm seriously not worried about "wasting" my money on such small implants... I want what I want !

Well, I gave in to my docs expert opinion and had...

Well, I gave in to my docs expert opinion and had 300/325's put in. Amazingly, that makes me a 34B... Just what I was looking for!! They are super high and hard as a rock... And I'm feeling nauseous and out of sorts. I hope this is the worst of it!

Had my first postoperative appointment today.....

Had my first postoperative appointment today.. Everything looks great. I'm off the norco now, and I drove myself home from the appointment with no problems. Doc says they are dropping nicely. If they seem to be dropping too quickly at the next appt (in a week) then he may have me start wearing a bra... So far, I've been braless since I was on the operating table. Strange how, even without a bra, I feel like I have one on-- since they're sitting so tight and compact on my chest. My only pain now is the incision, and Tylenol makes me feel better. All is well!

10 days post op. back to work. They've dropped...

10 days post op. back to work. They've dropped to the point that I can actually feel the lower inner edge of the implant in both breasts, which really freaks me out and makes me uncomfortable. The pec muscle soreness has stopped, but my left breast feels like it has a cramp pretty much constantly. Questioning this decision a lot lately. I can't get used to how I look in a bathing suit (don't have a clue how to tell if it fits right or not!) and I'm dying to wear a real bra. My stretch marks (from breastfeeding) look more obvious than they ever have now that my breasts are more "out there". I don't see the doc until Friday but hopefully he can help me feel better about all this.. Feeling ok, but definitely could be better. I want to be super excited about my decision like so many people on this website seem to be!!

Thanks for all of the kind words, ladies. I...

Thanks for all of the kind words, ladies. I believe I've been experiencing some temporary insanity. For whatever reason, the pain is (for now) completely non existent!! Weird. Maybe I've turned the corner...! More pics soon, I promise. :)

Feeling even better this morning. I think I've...

Feeling even better this morning. I think I've finally lost that tight/engorged feeling in my boobs that makes me think I need to find a baby to feed.. Haha. My post op appt yesterday went great. Seriously took less than 10 minutes for the doc to tell me that everything looks perfect. I only have a lil bit of dropping left to do.. so little that i may not even notice. He also told me I can start doing some cardio... Yay! I've been dying to exercise. I'll definitely be out on my bike this weekend. Happy healing, chickas!

Added some new pics... Sorry I haven't posted in...

Added some new pics... Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Before surgery, I was all obsessed with this website, and now that everything has turned out so great I guess I've moved on to other things... :). Life is good! Can't wait for summer!!!

Went in for my 6 week post op, and everything...

Went in for my 6 week post op, and everything looked good. My doc went ahead and took my "after" pics....!! What an amazing change! I certainty don't miss those lil deflated pancakes I used to have :)

How many months has it been..??

I'm about 9 months post op and doing great... Clothes fit nicely and bathing suit shopping is TOO fun! Can still see my scar and feel the implant edge but doesn't bother me. I've settled into bra size 34C, medium bathing suit tops :)

New photo

Posting a new photo! Some of you have been asking about stretch marks.. You can still sort of see the marks I got from breastfeeding 4 little ones, but they don't bother me.

Wow! You must be so happy with your results. Congratulations. I love how natural they look. I'm hoping I'll one day be able to get a full B or small C, nothing too obvious for me!

Glad to hear you are doing well and happy with your new size! Did anyone ever seem to notice how much better you look in those bikinis?

People have commented that it looks like I've lost weight, but no one has had the guts to ask if I got implants :). Then again, nobody really saw me in bikinis before the surgery, and if I wore one it was super-padded....

I know what you mean. Since my TT, weight loss and BA, the most drastic change was the loss of my belly! Bigger boobs definitely help though...

I like your result. I am also planning to go from A to B cup. My doc recommended 280cc. I have 5'3 and 115 lbs. If you don't mind me asking, who is your doctor? I went to one consultation in the bay area, but I live in the Sac area. thanks!

Thanks. How do you look before? Were you AA cup? I m going 275cc. Not sure if I should go up to 300cc.

Hi Yogi! Just saw your comments here and wanted to chime in as another BA'er who has similar stats and goal results. I'm 5'4" (almost) and 120lbs. and went with 275cc. I'm 3 months post op and was recently measured as 32C/34B. Good luck with your research!

Thank you. Getting mine in 2 weeks and I am going for 275cc too, saline though. Hope mine look as natural as yours. =)

I like your results. You look very natural and proportionate. Did you say you went with the 300 or 275? Is that silicone? I'm considering having the 300 done under the muscle. Just looking into it.

300 on one side, 325 on the other.. Moderate profile silicone

your results look amazing and very natural.

Hello, I'm from the Bay Area also, wondering who your surgeon was? I'm thinking about going to LA but yours look amazing. please share =) thanks

Hi, who did your BA? They look so natural! I'm looking for a good doctor in the bay area.

your boobs are my wish boobs....i go this Thu and getting 250/275 he did recommend 300, but felt it was too big. Now reading yours I am second guessing I am 5'7 and 138....but would rather be a bit small than a bit too big...but seriously if I could take yours and insert here I WOULD :) Thanks for your posts. Especially post - op...my anxiety over the unknown is driving me mad.

Did your stretch marks fade back to how they were before? I am scheduled for July 10, going from A to B :)

Not really, but a tan helps... Which I've got now since I'm finally cool with hanging out in a bikini :)
