My Implants Story

I got a BA on April 27th 2012... and after a week...

I got a BA on April 27th 2012... and after a week of my BA I got very depressed because I feel HUGE I feel I made a very bad decision with the size of my implants (421cc).. I feel embarrassed and want to hide them... my PS did and amazing job they look beautiful even though I am just 4 weeks post operation... but they are just not for me... I want to remove them ASAP I want to get 325cc (my first picked) I wanted to be a full B small C than got to excited and asked for a medium/full C and my PS suggested 400-425cc under muscle... I just read that this amount of cc gives a D cup! I am freaking out... I feel so guilty since I spent so much money already and now I want them smaller... I never thought this would happen I just wished I had followed my gut and instinct and stayed with my first picked... the 325-350cc... everyone says they are not too big, but no matter what they say I feel like a porn star! I am 5'3" 123 pounds size 4... I was a 34B from VS with push up before.
My advise will be to follow your gut when making this kind of decision... my boyfriend of course said to be a full C and I just went for it.. I didn't realize that from been almost flat to a BIG C was going to be a hard change on my body... I almost even miss my old small boobies... My PS suggested to wait at least 3 months before making a decision but I just can NOT see myself in the mirror with out seen just BIG-HUBE boobs... I am already thinking to make an appointment when I get to the 3 month mark.

Hi everyone! thank you so much for your support...

Hi everyone! thank you so much for your support and kind words... I still have my ups and downs... especially when I see myself naked is when my mind starts racing again and want this huge implants out!!! I am really trying to stay positive but its very hard... I started writing any email to my PS but just stopped for a second because I don't want him to think I have mental issues or something and not want to operate one me anymore!!! lol plus he can't listen to my crying so I guess you guys have to!! my boyfriend is very supportive but I feel I am driving him nuts... so I try not to tell him how sad and miserable I feel... I know they will drop and look better but will they look smaller?!?!?!? I mean implant size is still the same?!?!?!? someone went down a cup size after dropping!?!?!? thank you again everyone! xoxo
posted a pic with of an underwire bra from VS... a freaking D!!! NO!!! :(

Hi everyone! thank you all for your comments... it...

Hi everyone! thank you all for your comments... it has been almost a year and I have had my ups and downs... I would like them for a while than I will buy a bikini and feel like they are BIG BIG... everyone tells me is in my head but I can't believe that after almost a year I still complain about them and want to downsize... I was set to do it soon but I am not so sure anymore... yesterday a girl from work asked me if they were real or implants because I have beautiful boobs and she wants them like me... that made me appreciate what I have... I am going to see my PS soon and ask him about downsizing though I am not 100% I want to do it... Thank you for listening

Hi everyone! thank you to all that have taken the...

Hi everyone! thank you to all that have taken the time to reply, comment... well I emailed my PS today and he basically said that I should not change my size... that I will be playing with fire and I will be disappointed going down 100cc... he was very polite and very honest which I like but know it got me thinking that I might be wrong and feeling too big is all in my head? I don't know I was ready to set a surgery date today!

FINALLY!

I want to thank everyone for your support and kind comments... this coming April will be 2 years since I had my BA and I can finally say that I love my new body... it was a big change for me at the beginning and was set to get them smaller but know I can finally feel sexy and show them off... yes they could have been smaller but this size fits me just right... it actually gave me curves!!!... I do sometimes miss my old boobs than I try on dresses and wear no bra and yeah... no way I miss the padding bras!!! I do get more attention at the pool or beach but I don't think it is because everyone is thinking OMG look at those big fake boobs (that was my main issue before) now I wear my bikinis feeling proud and that I can FINALLY wear triangle tops with no padding and look amazing!!!
Good luck to all the ladies getting a BA!!! wish you the best! xoxo

Bikini.. no padding :)

El Paso Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Reynolds is an excellent surgeon, but what I really like about him is his honesty also his staff is amazing!!! I was giving the number of one of his nurses to contact her for anything I could need! she really was for me when I needed them.... that to me was priceless, especially as I went through a hard time after surgery adjusting to the changes, they cared and made sure I was okay.

Based on your stature and weight, I think a full D is a good fit for you. I'm afraid to go too be myself D: I'm glad you are happy with your results! My leftie is a full C, while my righty is a B - amybe a bit bigger. My BA is scheduled for July 25, a week from today, and I want to be a full D. I'm 5'1, and my weight fluctuates between 112-118. I will probably gain weight due to the lack of exercise after surgery. I want to be a full D, no more, no less. I don't know how many ccs are good for me. Has anyone gone from a full C to a full D? How many ccs did you get? Full B to D? anyone? HELP! D:

I think you look great, perfect size for your body. I hope I get a similar result. I am 6 days post op, feeling huge but for good reason. I was a droopy small c n asked for 375 or 400cc. Woke up to find I was given 500cc. I cried all week n too am so depressed. I'm only 5'1" n 138lbs. I hope n pray my out come in 2 years is as well as yours.

You look so great! My boobs feel like they are too low. I don't know if it's just in my head or what :( ps suggested 250 and I was chosing from 250,275,and 300. I told the PS that I wanted whatever he thought looked good. He went with 300 bc I wanted that.. But said I don't wanna look like Dolly Parton or fat. So now I'm 2 weeks post op and scared my boobs will drop lower :( will they?! They look natural I just wanted then a bit higher!

Hi! after the swelling subside they do get a bit lower, but also they will look more natural, you do not want them to be so close to your collar bone!

I'm 7 weeks post op and feeling as you did that the breast size is bigger than I wanted. I'm holding my breath that there is more swelling to subside and I won't always look this bulbous up top. It's when I'm wearing clothes that I feel the size chosen was a big mistake- pun intended. The bikini and bra pics don't really give a good indication of what your day to day appearance is. Do you feel they are in proportion to the rest of you when in "everyday" clothes? Thanks!

Hi! I do!!! and I also feel they got a bit smaller after 2 years! maybe I am getting used to them but I feel they are the perfect size... I really feel them part of me and forget I have implants, plus I love the fact I do not have to wear a bra with strapless dresses now in summer... I can totally hide them if I want to and look like a b cup!!! I am sure you look fab and trust me you will get used to the size you are way too early in the process! xo

You look great! I am glad that you are finally happy with your body. I am very early in recovery but, like you, feel like I just went too big. I hope they drop and go down in size soon...

YoYo.. How long did it take your breast to drop? I am one month PO tomorrow. My left breast seems a different shape than my right. I know it's still early though. It's almost like I can feel the implant on the left side of my left boob, but I feel like skin to the right of it. That might not make sense. I guess it just hasn't dropped like it will yet...? And i can still feel where the implant should go? I know they say wait.. lol.. and that seems to be my problem. I just want it to start looking normal like my right one. Any thoughts.

Hi Rita, it takes like 3 months to start dropping, so you are still early... about feeling the implant not were is supposed to go?? I don't know you should ask your PS, do you have pain? sometimes I do push my implant to the side when I am sleeping on my side... weird but I guess they do move??... sorry I cannot be more help...

Thank you. I do need to be more patient. I will post some pics later. Its hard to do it from work.. I don't want ppl thinking I'm looking at boobs at work..lol :) thank you for all your support YoYo

I'm assuming you went under? The tissue on the outer part of the breast is thinner, so it's normal to be able to feel the implant there. My left I can feel easily on the underside but particularly the outer edge; the right I can feel a little bit but not as much. As for the rest, I agree that you're still way early in the game. Between 3-6months you should start really seeing a difference. Happy healing!

Yes, I am under. Thank you. I know I have a ways to go. They change from day to day.
