2 months!

I have always wanted to feel more "womanly" and after 38 years of being flat as a board, I am so very happy to have gone through the process of augmentation. I have 425 cc saline mod plus profile, my PS would not go larger with my 5'7" 130 # frame. My only regret at this point is not being more insistent at going a little larger, however every day they look better.

Can't believe it has been 2 weeks! They feel more...

Can't believe it has been 2 weeks! They feel more 'mine' every day :) glad time-wise that I did this in March so they will be more 'natural' by this summer.

I had to dig for some pre pics as I was always so embarrassed by how flat I was!

Had official 2 wk follow up today (although today is 18 days) and my PS said I could get back to jogging if it was comfortable. I am wondering if it is too soon? Any advice on the best way to ease back into it is appreciated!

I finally made it to the big city to a Victoria's Secret for an official bra fitting. The whole way there I promised myself I wasn't going to cry if they told me I was a B. The first sales lady was very young and whipped a measuring tape around me (over my bulky scrubs) and said "at best 34c but probably a B"!!!!! Aagghh!! With tears welling up I went right to a 34 d (as my sports bras were all xl) and it was too tight...happy dance! Another more mature sales lady came and helped me and ended up a 34 DD (or a 32 DDD depending on the style). Whew! Not sure why those numbers matter so much but after years of being A/B size they really do. Overall feeling good except for the 7 pounds I gained not exercising but ran today a short distance. Felt a little strange, not painful, I think just lack of conditioning!

Overall pleased to have new assets :) however I really do wish for more fullness and even some cleavage that did not come with 425 cc saline mod plus profile. I have my next follow up next week and planning to express my concerns although knowing not much to be done now. Moral of story for all you ladies waiting for surgery, GO Bigger!!

At my last visit I expressed concern to my PS (...

At my last visit I expressed concern to my PS ( who was in the room seriously long enough to snap 2 pics) that I do not have the fullness I was hoping for. I praised her for her skill but simply asked at what point is it ok to go for what I really hoped for. She said 'they look fine.' And I agree, they look 'fine,' just not the wow! factor I had hoped for and quite frankly am disappointed given the financial/time investment. I am a nurse practitioner so I know how I would react had a patient expressed disappointed, maybe this makes it harder for me to grasp her rushed approach. Time for a second opinion?

At my f/u visit last week, in which the PS was...

At my f/u visit last week, in which the PS was literally in long enough to take 2 pics, I voiced my concern that I really do not have the fullness I had wished for. I was complimentary of her work but simply asked at what point can I have a revision with what I really want. I feel from the beginning she was rushed and not open to larger sizes, and now I am 2 months post op and disappointed. She said 'they're fine' and yes they are fine, I wanted WOW though not fine! I posted 2 new pics with and without clothes and in looking at them think there is plenty of room for bigger. Any input from ladies who have had or are wishing for a revision?

Advice needed!

I am about 3 months post op, I realize it takes longer for breasts to fully settle, however I am very disappointed with my results and on a daily basis kick myself for not asking to try on more sizers. When I lay flat, my chest is as flat as before, only looks weirder now as I have little boobs poking off the side....at my last visit I asked if there was anything to be done and they said "they look fine." So yesterday I get a call from PS office that after July she will no longer be with the practice. Now I am wondering should I be more insistent before ahe leaves? Should I let it go and settle for what I have? Help!

So all this time I have been so down on my body after augmentation, unfortunately the whole time I have been in a relationship that was not healthy. He was always making rude comments about my new breasts which in turn made me feel like they were awful. I had even convinced myself they were all wrong and gone back to PS and asked her to redo them. Thankfully he left, and I've been able to embrace my new body. I can actually say now that I love them, yes next time around they will be larger (but who doesn't say that?!) but I do feel much more confident. Silly to think a man can have that much influence over how we view our bodies, and even sillier that I allowed him to make me feel bad. To each of you going through this, I hope you have support of a good friend and or spouse as this is an emotional journey. I can honestly say worth it!

New 6 month pics.

Almost 7 months, wondering if should have gone with HP??

7 months new bras

Few new bras I found today at Target, not nearly as supportive it comfy as VS....I've decided once the money is saved I am going to have revision. I am still flat when j lay on my back, too wide gap in between. I really want more fullness and some cleavage. Am in the process of researching new PS as mine left the practice 4 months after my surgery...

1 year post op, 425 cc mod profile saline

What a year! I am still happy with my decision to have augmentation. Yes, would still have gone with larger size if I had a do-over but feel comfortable with the size for several more years. My boyfriend absolutely loves them which is awesome! It honestly took many months to realize they were 'ok' and several more to really like them....it was a tough road in the beginning. It was much more of an emotional investment than anticipated. Best advice is get a great bra, makes a world of a difference!
