I never had much complaints about my boobs until...
I never had much complaints about my boobs until after I lost 12 pounds after my second pregnancy. My boobs grew quite a bit with pregnancy and breastfeeding and now are sagging and deflated. I'm looking to get the look I have in my Victoria Secret Incredible bra but without all the padding. I am hoping to be a Full C or small D after surgery. I currently wear a 34C bra from VS which I no longer fill the cups. I'm guessing I'm currently a small B cup.
The first consult I had the doctor told me I need a full anchor lift and that the biggest implants he could use would be around 330 cc if I did the lift and implaints together. The cost would have been around $12,000. I wasn't expecting to need a full lift and decided to ask other doctors on this site their thoughts. After many docs said I could still have good results without a lift I scheduled a consult with Dr. Pelletiere.
At my second consult Dr. Pelletiere felt I could have good results with a dual plane moderate plus smooth silicone implant of 350-375. I really like his before and after pics and his price is much better at $5500. He said I could always have the lift later if I wasn't happy with the results. I preferred this approach much more. After clearing a couple days off work I scheduled the surgery.
I currently weigh 130 pounds and im 5'3" tall. Only 12 more days to go!
Unfortunately we had a family emergency and my surgery didn't happen yesterday. I will update once it gets rescheduled. I can say that my doctor was extremely understanding and caring about what happened.
My surgery has been rescheduled for February 19 due to a family emergency. Dr. Pelletiere and his staff has been amazing so far. I also wanted to note that I am getting Mentor implants and I have no idea how this review was listed under Inspira. Anyone know how I can correct this?
The surgery went great! Dr. Pelletier and his staff were wonderful! Last night I was in some major pain. Today is better already. Whatever you do just don't go too long between meds.
4 months post op, so happy hope this helps
Sorry the pictures aren't the best. I am 4+ months post and couldn't be happier. I am definitely glad I didn't get the lift. My boobs aren't super perky but that makes them look natural instead of fake which is what I wanted. The only thing I wish is that they were slightly closer together but I think going under the musccle may limit the cleavage, I'm not sure. I can create good cleavage with a bra. I am 32DDD at Victoria Secret or a 32DD elsewhere. Sounds big but to put it into perspective its about the same as a 34D or 36C. I am very happy and I am so glad I chose Dr. Pelletiere.
1 year update
Today was my one year follow up with Dr Pelletiere. I am still so happy with my decision and results. I'm glad I skipped the lift and the scarring I would have had. I hope these updated pictures help.
