Feeling Natural and Great - Austin, TX

I got saline unders in 2001, went from a 32A to 32D. Most docs wanted to do small implants, but I was 19 and dumb and wanted bigger. They looked fake but things were fine. After I had kids I swelled up to a 32H. When I was done nursing I was still a huge 32F. Clothes didn't fit, they were... READ MORE

Mini Lift with Dr. Horndeski -Stafford, TX

I wanted a breast lift because I'd recently had my 12-year-old saline implants removed. My breasts were pretty deflated so I wanted to get them lifted back up. Dr Horndeski has a great office staff. They are -super- prompt at answering questions, and everyone in the office was nice. I... READ MORE

How much does your look change over time post-explant?

I just had my explant 1.5 weeks ago and while I'm 100% glad I did it, my breasts look sad, flat, and droopy.  Is there any hope for them looking better?  If so when... READ MORE

Anyone else looked 'bottomed out' right after surgery?

I'm thinking I look bottomed out.  I'm hoping it's partially due to swelling and will go away with time but I'm a little worried that it's not.   READ MORE

Hi, no, I don't feel lumpiness in my boob in general. It's so nice to feel regular boobs instead of implants!! The nipple incision is still kind of lumpy in places & there's still a little pleating. Nipple sensation is slowly coming... READ COMMENT

Nope :( The hunt continues. READ COMMENT

I'm so sorry. I've read that quite a few have had wounds open there. You may want to do a board search on open wounds. I had a small one and even asked the docs why can't they just stitch it back up, there were good answers there.... READ COMMENT

My old clothes fit (darn, was hoping to have to buy a new wardrobe, lol) but they fit *better*. I have a pre-surgery shirt that has one of those high waist / empire tops. Pre-surgery my bust was so full and saggy (I had implants too)... READ COMMENT

You're looking good!! My pleating is lessening over time. Now I only notice it after I've been out of my bra for a while (like showering). Nipple sensation is coming back slowly, I'm hoping that massaging the scars will also help. READ COMMENT
