32A to 36C (450cc Under Muscle) Not As Big As I Wanted

i am 3 weeks post-op from my breast implants. i was a 32a before surgery. im 5'5 115 lbs. i wasnt even a full 32a. i got implanted with smooth round moderate profile plus saline 400cc overfilled to 450cc under the muscle in each breast but i feel small. i ony fit a 34c maybe a 36c depending on the bra. i wanted full d. my cousin was flatter than me initially and got 375cc and is a 34 d.

i did it to improve my look and self esteem. the pros were it has improved my self esteem the cons are im not 100% happy with the results.

ive heard once they fully settle they get bigger is this true? i feel like my surgery was a waste im not as big as i wanted to be. they are still riding kind of high but im soo unhappy i feel like i still have small breast. what was the point of implants? will they get bigger?

Thank you all for posting this. I am a deflated large A maybe B and I was going to go with a 450cc saline or maybe silicone but after seeing this I might go for 475-500 unders

Homen, I am also a deflated 34 A-B and I was going to get 450cc in the Memory Gel silicone Moderate Profile PLUS implant but I thought it wouldnt give me the full C small D size I wanted. I called the doctors office back and spoke to the nurse because I wanted to go up from 450ccs to 475cc just to be a little bigger. During our talk she looked at my pictures, and noticed I had volume on the bottom of my breast but not the top (because I breastfed) so she recommended that I get the high profile. She said it would give me that fullness on top that I was lacking. So our final decision was 475ccs under the muscle using High Profile Memory Gel Silicone implants. I have my surgery April 17th so I let's see how the results are!!

I regret going too large as do many women I know. A c is a perfect size. Don't make and decisions for at least a year.

I'm feeling the same way, but I just got 290cc. I'm just a small C, but I told the doc I didn't want to be a D. Now I regret it, but I can't keep spending so much money changing. My friend used your doc and her surgery was over $4000. How did you get it so cheap? I should have went with him. I spent $4000 with a different doc at Brookwood Hospital.

You got a pretty big size for starting out so small. With saline overs you may ripple considerably. I had saline overs 375cc and the rippling was really gross. I was a 34a. I upgraded to 475cc memory gel partial unders and my boobs are a 34C and they are HUGE, trust me. I squeeze them into a 34C but I believe my actual size is a 32D. It just depends.

I am having the same issue although I went from 330cc saline to 550cc silicone and also am not happy with the results. I am also not as large as pictured or as viewed with other women with the same size. I am going to go back for the 3rd surgery in a few months and go as large as 750cc. I guess it's best to wait several months as I just had these replaced 3 weeks ago. I feel your disappointment!!

This related question from another RealSelf community member might help: Advice for too small breast implants?

She was also unhappy with her post-op size, and the consensus among the doctors was to wait a few months and see how she felt after that (I believe you have to wait a bit before you can have a new surgery anyway).

Hope this helps!
