Well, like most of you that have gone or are...
Well, like most of you that have gone or are already going through this I am feeling a little nervous about picking out the size of implants. I am 5'5" and about 145.. average built. I already have 34 DDD breast and am going in for the lift, however I know I will not be happy in the long run because with weighted breasts I know that they will eventually fall and be saggy mammy jammies again! lol I tried on some sizers at my consult and think that 200 was nice however talking with his assistant she recommended 250. Because he goes behind the muscle she thinks I would be happier with the 250. I am afraid that this will be too big like Really Big!! I'm aiming to keep the size but really want the upper pole fullness. But then will the 200 not give me the fullness?? AAHHHH! I have yet to pick a date out yet although I know it will be in the next few weeks. Then the next dilemma is silicone or saline. I have a few friends with both and they are all happy with what they chose, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!! Would really love a tummy tuck too but being a single mother I guess one thing at a time.. Thank You all!!
Set the date!!
So I set the date!! July 31... I am experiencing the nervousness and anxiety that I'm sure most of you have too. I think my biggest fear is that my nipples will be lop sided lol. or one will end up being bigger to the point you can tell.. I plan on posting some more before pics in some of the clothes I have that I have not been able to wear because my boobs will not let me. lol I am hoping that my pics will help those of you who are larger breasted and would like to keep your size but get a lift and or lift with implants. I have had such a hard time finding pics of women with larger breasts that are getting this procedure. Anyway, the countdown has begun, and if any of you who have already been through this has any advice on things I may need beforehand I would greatly appreciate any advice... Thanks!!
One more week!
Getting the weekly jitters! So my PS and I talked about 250cc.. looking at some pics of others and I'm wondering if it's not going to give me enough upper pole! AAAAAhhhhhh! I hate second guessing myself. However he thinks 200 will do the job. I have faith in him but I think he, as weird as this may sound because I want semi-natural looking boobs lol, he wasn't too make me more natural than what I want. I gave him pictures of what I want to look like, I guess because I can't find pics of women with as big breast as mine it's hard to determine what I feel I'll need. But... I guess I'll pray that this will be enough. And like all of you, be happy that they are up there instead of resting on by stomach! lol
Still debating. ...
Ok so I'm less than a week away and still unsure of cc's... I know what I want to look like, I also know that everyone is unique and what looks like one thing on one person can look totally different on another. Sometimes I feel 250 will be great and I shouldn't be greedy lol than I feel like eh Just do 300 better bigger than smaller. .. I'm so unsure and hope that I make the right decision. It's not really that much of a difference lol 50cc's. Lol. Hmmmm
One more day!
Super nervous. .. anxious. .. trying to get and keep everything in order. I've cleaned and cleaned lol. .. In class today having some tests so I'll keep busy till I get home. .then I'm sure I'll find something else to clean lol

Day of treatment
As some of you know. .. OUCH! Surgery went well. I went with the 300 and even though I can't see them... they look amazing. I can tell the right is more swollen looks a little bigger than the left and hurts more. Haven't been able to keep anything down but the Dr told my daughter not to worry because I had about of iv fluid so I'm good lol. I'll post pics soon! Thank you all for Your support and suggestions. You made it easier to get through this.!!!
So here is the first pic. .. I'm so happy I went with the 300! Thank you henny & juju! You helped me pick my cc's with confidence. I love them already. . I never thought I would be able to do this. Afford it that is. And to have this site and all you wonnderful woman to talk to. Thank you so much!
2 days post
Very pleased with my results. My right side is more swollen and more sore. But here's some more photos. ..
My shirt! love it!
Minus my sleep shorts lol. I'm so happy! I can feel my nerve ending coming alive! Lol I'm starting to feel everything, Not bad, but I only took half a pain pill this morning and nothing since. Think I'll take another half. Feeling some pain but not bad. I so wish I would have been able to afford this sooner! I love my boobs! I never thought I would be able to say that. I'm so happy!
Almost 2 weeks post op
Just wanted to update. Its almost 2 weeks post and I have to say I miss sleeping on my side lol. My back is killing me more than my boobs.. I am concerned about the left one. It seems there is a part on the bottom where I feel more skin should have been taken off. Just concerned that once they settle that it will sag more, thinking he may have to fix it and I dread that. Then I'm having some swelling on the sides where the side boob is lol not sure how to explain it other than that. It's hard where the incision is. Worried that it is scar tissue forming already and I haven't gotten the ok to massage them yet! Guess I'll have to call him tomorrow and see what he says. Here's an updated pic though.
Few more pics
So excited to try on some old new clothes lol
So I just wanted to update.. had to go to Dr because of some scar tissue already forming on my left side. It's not bad just annoying. Dr said it should soften some. Also found out he used high profile not moderate. So I thought I would post a side view of both now. Just so everyone can see the difference. Still Very pleased. Oh one more thing, i am numb under my left breast. I asked him and he said he sees it like one every six months. Something to do with a vein he said it would heal itself. It feels like pulling when I raise my arm up. But yet when I touch the spot it's numb lol.. aggravating lol
I never though in a million years I would be able to go braless.. I couldn't be happier
3 1/2 weeks post op
Three weeks post and today was my first day back to school. Meeting in cosmetology and using my arms about. .. It actually wasnt too bad. My left boob still looks a little boxy compared to what I like to call my "perfect" boob lol. But they still look better than what they did. I have a small open sore under my right boob that I'm keeping my eye on. Other than that, feeling pretty good!
So, as I was pondering some thoughts last night while talking with a friend, I started thinking.... Maybe I should have thought a little more and did a little more research even though my PS said I was the most informed and researched patient he has ever had.. this is why... and oh, I don't regret my decision just thinking maybe I could have made a few changes...
Would it have been benificial for me to have half my tissue removed and had maybe and exra 50cc implant put in.. I am now afraid that my big breast may eventually sag and i will have to get a lift to correct it again.. would I have been better getting some of the tissue removed to where I would not have to worry about dense heavy tissue?? HMMMMMM and the thoughts go on...
As I said I LOVE my results now, but I am predicting the future LOL... I will be one to keep you all updated.
8 Weeks Post

Well I'm at the 8 week mark. I'm still very optimistic but there is things of course that I would like to change. I will post more pics. I know that the "real" results will not be until at least 6 months. Then I guess I can fine tune what I feel the need to or decide what I want to do. I think that we see things and want the exact same outcome but that is nearly impossible. I am still pleased but of course there are concerns I have. As we all do lol
almost 6 months

So I'm almost at my six month Mark and I'm feeling a revision is necessary. More skin needs be taken from the bottom so they will be more lifted. I'm still pleased but they are just not as perfect as i pictured. I will try n post some new pics soon..

Here's a few new pics, you can see how they need to be lifted more. Still better than they were but not perfect.
1 1/2 year update
Hey everyone. Sorry I havent been on to update or reply. I went through a big move but all is well. I will post some updated pics soon.. I still feel I need another lift but I am still happy with going through the procedure and would do it again anyday. Of course with the hands on knowledge I probably would have gotten a reduction and kept the 300cc I went with. Only because they dropped due to me being heavy breasted. Again, not sorry i did it just wish I would have known.
