I had 360cc each Saline under muscle implants for the last 19 years. I actually still really liked them but knew eventually I would have to make a change and decided not to wait around for one to fail and then be in a hurry to fix them. I am now 40, 5'7", and weigh 132 lb. My bra size was 32ddd.
So I have my revision done yesterday. I needed internal stitching on the lateral sides to make the pockets smaller for the newer shape of the implants, and scar revision to the old scars. They new ones were placed in at the crease.
My new implants are Mentor smooth round high profile, cohesive gel, left 650, right 750.
Pain isn't horrible and I am barely 24 hours post op. The lateral stitching is what probably hurts the most. I do have swelling so I am trying to remind myself they get better with time. Although overall I am happy and think they will look awesome.
I admit I am a little worried about being to big, I said just 'a little' bigger would be fine. I will add photos later. Going back to sleep now.
Ok it's day 5 and I am only taking Tylenol. I went back to work Thursday, 3 days post op, I don't recommend it unless you have a low stress no lifting of any kind day like I had. Thankfully I trust my doctor and nurse and they are beginning to drop. They still seem a little to high compared to me nipple position but it's not even been a week since surgery. I really did still like my 19 year old implants and so did my husband. I got many many compliments on how natural and good they looked bug at 19 years I was fixated on waiting for them to fail. I didn't want to just wait for one to fail and then be in a hurry to fix them. I finally decided since I knew I would have do change eventually why not know when I was still young and fit enough to enjoy them.
I still can't say enough about choosing your PS based on comfort, experience, and not cost. The doctor, his nurse Lisa, and the surgery center are are A+. I have an extensive medical background and therefore have very high expectations. Destin Plastic Surgery do far is worth the cost and travel time. I will update again soon. I go for my post op first Tuesday.
Sorry for the typos
As much as I love technology I am embarrassed by my typos in my last post, I submitted it from my iPhone. Anyways my biggest concern now is waiting for them to drop a little further. So far Dr Ennis must know what he is doing because the size is a different shape even though the CCs are larger but it seems my 32ddd bras will still fit.
Ouch massaging hurts
Ok I admit I might be trying a little to hard at massaging these babies trying to make them drop it has still only been 9 days but the left one is way more sore than the right. I can push and massage the right with very little soreness but the left is a big ouch!!! Still no bras while I wait for them to settle.
It seems the silicone needs massaging to get in place. I never had to do anything 19 years ago with the saline implants.
