I've never had large breasts... Maybe a 36B at my...

I've never had large breasts... Maybe a 36B at my heaviest (college days) & then of course during my 2 back to back pregnancies (Kids are now 3.5 & 2.5 year olds).Even though I didn't breast feed, my breasts lost volume & looked like sad little chicken cutlets. I barely filled out a 36A & didn't bother wearing padded bras because it was too disappointing to take them off at the end of the day ! I'm very active & love running (2 marathons within the past year), which has been great for losing pregnancy weight but not for my breasts! I wanted to feel womanly (but not matriarchal!), sexy but not pornstar. I wanted to be able to fill out my bras, have a little bounce in the bedroom & a 'good handful' for my husband. After years of hoping to someday have the surgery, I finally got the 'OK' from my hubby...!!! I absolutely love having full breasts & my husband even said "why didn't we do this sooner?" Haha

Overall recovery was a breeze.... Had a c-section with my first born & that really was my only surgery experience prior -- B.A. recovery is a vacation compared to c-section!!!! Was off pain meds by day 2...learned my lesson with c-section recovery to take plenty of stool softeners when on pain meds!!!! By day 10 post op I felt so great that I was already anxious to find out when I could get back on the treadmill to start running again!

Scars @ 3 weeks post op

Saw my surgeon today for my 3 week post-op visit & he removed the steri-strips. Here are pics of the scars at 3 weeks post-op. Dr said it's totally normal for them to look a bit funky right now... A little moisturizer/vitamin e oil and within a few months they should be less pronounced and a lot lighter in color.

4 weeks post op

I'll be 4 weeks post op in 2 days so I figured I should post more recovery progress pics. Though I think the surgery was "worth it", I'm still disappointed with the size... Wish they were larger!! My right breast also seems to be a bit smaller than my left... My DR observed the slight size difference at my consultation appointment, so I guess I'm confused as to why the same size implants for both breasts?? Any thoughts? I've also noticed I've been breaking out a bit on my breasts (As a runner, I'm used to an occasional pimple or two caused from sweat/sports bras, but currently I have yet to see smooth, pimple free boobs!) ?!

Capsular contracture & animation deformity at 8 weeks post-op??

I'm afraid I may have capsular contracture and animation deformity on my right breast. I'm 8 weeks post-op today... Anyone else experience similar issues? My breast looks deformed!! The implant is still riding high and the bottom of the breast feels numb and extra soft (not full like the other breast). The shape also looks cone-like and the nipple is pointing more downward than the other. I saw you surgeon at 7 weeks post op and he recommended wearing my sports bra above the implants (similar to what a compression band does) & to increase the downward massage... Still doesnt look to be showing much (if any?) improvement.

What's going on?!!
Animation deformity and possible capsular contracture?? What do you think?

Revision surgery scheduled

Now that I'm 6+ months post initial breast augmentation, my dr has agreed to my revision surgery for capsular contracture. With the Natrelle warranty for severe contracture, I'm also able to replace both implants. This has been a roller coaster ride of emotions & I'm really hoping that this next surgery will result in my desired results. I never would've imagined capsular contracture as part of my augmentation journey... Not only have I had physical pain in my breast (feels like a hard golf ball is in my breast), but obviously my physical appearance/breast deformity has brought on insecurities (everything from being intimate with my husband, to even the clothing I can & can't wear without it being obvious that I have an issue with my breast). I'm also wondering if perhaps my silicone implant ruptured ? I remember hearing/feeling a popping sensation early on but apparently that is somewhat normal & the result of air bubbles in the breast pocket?? I guess I'll know for certain soon enough. Surgery is scheduled for mid July...

Revision surgery complete

Due to baker grade 3/4 capsulary contracture, I recently had a capsulectomy with implant replacement (I opted for a bit of a larger size). I'm now 12 days post-op.

Dallas Plastic Surgeon

Absolutely love Dr. Pin-- he was very personable & took the time to understand what I was looking to accomplish through the surgery. He was also realistic in what was possible for my specific body type. The staff a this office was wonderful--they answered my questions & didn't seem bothered by my million phone calls. The wait time for my first appointment was a bit much (45 minutes behind schedule, but I was very pleased that Dr Pin took time to talk to me & didn't appear to be rushed.) My surgery was a wonderful experience-- staff at Surgicare was great. I appreciated the follow up phone call from my recovery nurse. My second appointment at Dr Pin's office (1st post-op) was on time & the staff was also very accommodating to provide my 3 & 2 year olds with children's books & stickers.
