My breasts were very small and empty. - Breast Augmentation - Houston, TX

After having three children and nursing for over 6 years, my breasts were very small and empty.

I had 225cc HP over the muscle implants put in April 5 last year and noticed a hardening on my right side this April, a year later.

We have the same stats as far as height and weight, but I was only a B cup before and breastfed for over 6 years. I love my 350s. Check out my pics and story. READ COMMENT

Cheers to Strattice!!! If anyone on this review is looking for a second consultation for a revision with Strattice in Houston, Dr Boynton has 9 years experience with it and I had zero problems since my revision 5 months ago :) READ COMMENT

Looks great!! I hardly had any pain for my 225s also. I think with a smaller implant the tissue has less adjusting to do. They will drop and look even more gorgeous!! Congrats!! And about the surgical bra, I bought two so I could wash... READ COMMENT
