I decided to post a review because I found this site to be such a wealth of information! I've been on it for hours since I confirmed my surgery date. It is amazing how you become obsessed with boobies!!
So a little bit about me...I am 39 years old, 5'4" and 140lbs. I have 2 teenage kids. I have fluctuated with my weight for many years going from 130 to 180 after kids. I wore a 36D at my heaviest weight but that was about 10 years ago. Since I've lost weight, my breast really started to deflate and sag. I started telling my friends and family I was really considering BA. I was wearing only push-up padded bras and I was sad with the fact that the more I exercised, the smaller they got!
I guess the final straw came when I took my 15 year old bra shopping and she sized in at 34D. When we got home she gave me her 34/36B bras and they fit. I decided it was my time! I'm turning 40 in 2 months and I want to feel fabulous!! So I made 2 appointments to see the PS. The first PS told me he wanted to do silicone implants above the muscle because I had good breast tissue and he would determine the size prior to surgery. I just needed to bring in pictures of what i wanted and liked. He also suggested I have crescent lift on my right breast because of my symmetry.
I wasn't familiar with the lift so I had to do some research on that. I really liked him but wanted a second opinion. The second PS wanted to do silicone unders. He did not think I needed a lift and that I would do well with 350 or 380 cc moderate profile. I was so confused when I returned home and started my research. That's how I stumbled onto this site. Well I decided to go with the second PS. While trying on sizers, I liked 350 but after reading all the post about 400-500cc and wishing they went bigger, I brought my husband in for feedback. I think that processed really freaked him out! He kept holding the sizers and saying they were huge and I should just do baby ones.
It was quite an ordeal so I settled on 350. Then a few days later I called the PS and asked if they could have the 380 on hand so I could decide before surgery. After looking at a million photos of BA I think the sizes look so different on every body. Some BA of 500 cc look small on woman and some 300 cc look huge!! So now 2 days before my surgery I'm pretty sure I'll go with the 380.
I do want to thank all the ladies out there that posted helpful tips and what to expect. Hopefully I'll be able to share my experience and it will help someone out there as well. I know one thing for sure is that I am soooo excited to start loving my boobs!
