I made my consultation appointment with an idea in my head of what I wanted for an outcome. Dr. and I discussed the differences, He felt that there isnt any physical difference between saline and silicone, but with silicone I'd have to have an MRI every 3 years. I was almost convinced, but after I went home and started reading some more I decided that I absolutely wanted silicone. Gave him pictures (all looked quite similar) and set the date for surgery.
Because I selected the silicone I had to have the incisions in the creases under my existing breasts. He put in 400 CC's because I didnt have more room for anything larger. It's been a week and I think that they look like an advertisement for the old playtex bras that were all pointy boobies! Still dont know what size they are, though I tend to think a "C"? I saw the Dr yesterday and he said that they will begin to drop in the next several weeks and will look more "natural". They have begun to soften and the only real pain is the incisions. He didnt say anything about massaging but I do it anyways just because it relieves some of the stiffness.
