30 yrs old, mom of 2 breastfed both, 5'1 110 lbs, bwd 11 cm - Jacksonville, FL

So today was the big day. I went to Ponte Vedra...

So today was the big day.

I went to Ponte Vedra plastic surgery and I absolutely love the facility. They have their own surgery center attached to the building. All certified with hospital certified health professionals working / doing procedures etc.

My ps measured my breast width, I was 11 cm. I know I want to go up around 3-4 cup sizes. Giving that I'm smaller I know a high profile is needed to fit my small frame.

Just to give an idea

Height: 5'1
Weight: 108-110 (not in gym) during gym 99-105 lbs
Bra size: 30-32 a/b depending on the bra. Victoria Secret I'm a 32 B but I know I measure 30, a.

I really liked the textured Gel....

But I didn't know if it's worth the 1,000 upgrade when I see the smooth gel on women they look just ad good so I'd love to hear some pros and cons on that

I'm Def getting gel

Gummy bear/ teardrop shapes or round idk??

Cc wise.... depends on the type I get too....

280 mpf
290 high profile
300 high profile

There was one implant that they fill more up to wear it doesn't droop as much but I cannot remember the name. It doesn't have as much of the ripple effect.... it started with an S... smooth round gel .... uhhhh Ill get back to u on that....

So I was an 30 A before kids... then 32-34 D-DD while breastfeeding then I went back to a C after my son. Then withmy daughter I was the same as my son while he was breastfeeding, but I didnt keep any I went back to 30-32 A....

I'm going to add some pics of my breastfeeding boobs lmk what u think

So my PS office just called

I'm so stinking excited my office just called they ate offering 750 off my procedure. I was worried about the cost bc we had our car go out on us I didn't think I would be able to get it done as soon as I wanted.... and it's the new inspira ones they are fuller more cohesive gel. Ahhhhh

I'm wanting a fuller look ....

My bwd is 10.5. He said we could push 11.2 maybe. I'm gonna get re measured and make sure

I tried on the 350 cc and I really liked them. And 285 they were too small.

Wish...

Another fellow realselfer I absolutely love her look and we are the same size she is taller tho. ;)

Almost 30 years old mother of 2. BWd 10.5 110 lbs 5'1

I feel restrictioned in the size I want.

More wish pics

Rice test!!!! Lol

Although I have an appointment Monday to try on sizers and do 3d imaging.... I'm driving my self nuts lol


So I did the rice test.

Looks like 1.5 cup fit just right

2 cups was a little too big....

So 350-375 is where I'm sitting at but getting under the muscle should I tell him 375-400???
Hp - inspira? ?

Like

My measurements. .. I lied

So I thought my PS said I was 10.5 but..... I'm an 11. Which helps me a lot because I knew I couldn't force 12 into 10
But now maybe I can fit 12 !

I'm praying for 350,375 even 400 cc.

Monday I make my appointment. Get my 3d images and more sizers

Tried on sizers today

Omg I'm so freaking upset. At 11.0 bdw and they said all I can have is 325. My PS will not go higher than that and that's with hp... uhp the assistant tried to talk me out of them. Idk how to feel right now! Help!!!

Before regular bra

3d images

So my PS assistant did my 3d images and I'm still wanting 350. I think I should get uph.

My 3d the 3rd ps updated for me....

Mt 3rd consult updated 3d images for ultra high profile for me. Tell me what you think vs the pics I posted of the high profile....

The review for 2nd ps will be more in depth tonight

Dr wallace at fleming island

I saw dr. Wallace at Fleming Island plastic surgery yesterday and he was amazing the staff was super sweet it's a very small office and literally walking distance from my house which is awesome

when I first met with him he was all smiles, he joked a little bit, was very very easy-going. any questions I had he answered he was also very informative about the pros of breast augmentation the cons what could happen the statistics everything ,and also asked me my opinion.... and what I was looking for....
I gave him my pictures and then when he measured me. I didn't feel uncomfortable..... you know how you feel when you go to a new gynecologist office and they make you feel uncomfortable so you pick a new one ..... you don't want that feeling with your plastic surgeon either......

so he did his measurements did the pictures which was great... and then we did sizers!! he said that he was going to pull out the size that he thinks I would like based on my pictures and the discussion we had .... and immediately pulled out the 450 cc which thrilled me because I knew that he understood what I was going for !!!! put them in and oh my God they felt amazing!!!! the weight of them felt perfect the feel of them the way they fit in the bra was great !!!

then he said I want to find what's too big for you. so he handed me 550 cc those things where the biggest candy dishes I have ever seen LOL put them in there completely over lapping in the cleavage and falling out the side totally way too big .

So when he pulled out the measuring chart we decided that we like to be cut in the crease, and picked the textured round ultra high profile at 440 the reason why we picked textured is because I do work out and I am such a smaller person we want the cleavage to be able to stay in the middle in the scar tissue what attach to the textured really well.

Their pricing was better than Ponte Vedra I got a quote of $5,000 that included the surgeon's fees the anesthesia the surgery room and the implants with a $500 discount if I book with them by April 22nd that's with the textured implants too

Ponte Vedra price without textured implants was 6000 I did however get a 20% discount because of friends and family and then they were giving me a discount because I was using the inspira

I really want to be cohesive gel but I really want the textured and I don't know if I can afford the textured at Ponte Vedra and I was uncomfortable with dr. Ramsey only in the aspect of I didn't feel like I was being listened to I see dr. Scotia on Friday at Ponte Vedra so we'll see how that goes

More 3d images

I did a comparison of all the 3d.

Love these

More 3d

Images by them self left middle and right side with no comparison

****all in all I liked both dr's*****

Icing for fleming island dr. Wallace is they asked me t model for their office .... if I choose them.....

Finally a date!

So my husband and I went to dr. Wallace is office on Monday and had a meeting with him together. I let my husband ask questions and get the feel for the doctor. I'm so happy to say that he liked him just as much as I did! he was very concerned about the procedure with my back, I have herniated discs in my lower back and Dr Wallace was very sympathetic to my issues and wanted to work in hand with my pain management doctors and spine Specialists where that's concerned. he also wanted to be able to help my dreams come true but also make sure that it's done in a tastefully manner and i. A way that my body could handle it. I able to try on the size.. as I put on the sizers that the previous doctor dr. Rumsey wanted me to use which was at 3:25 and they were just too small even my husband said it look like a glorified Victoria Secret bra. then I tried on the 450 with a sports bra on and my husband said " wow those look awesome"

so we put the down payment for my procedure on Monday and my procedure will be on July 14th and I am super excited !!!!

I want to thank all you ladies so much for all of your help well wishes advice your post your before your Afters well after two months three weeks two days two years every single post that you ladies doing really helped tremendously it gives me expectations and allows me to know what's going to happen during the procedure and I just thank you are very very very very much for all your help!

I submitted another review so that I was able to review dr. Wallace is work I'll post the link once it is approved!

Day 3 dpo

Hey ladies!!!!! Day three has been pretty good. Well, I haven't been able to stay awake long enough to do this post , lol. However I woke up around10 am my son allowed me to sleep in. We spent all day watching TV and cuddling he loved it. Just me and him. Then I took a short nap before we went to the mall. No not bra shopping for every day use but a sports bra i only have one. The One my Dr gave me is stretching out and its too big around the band. Posting some pics. I can see change from boob-day till now.

Day 5

My son is home with me and had been doing great. Last night my daughter spiked a high fever of 102. I kept her home with me. She laid in bed with me all day. Took her to the Dr. And she tested positive for strep. ???????? makes me so upset been trying to keep all illness away just hope I don't get it. I've been on antibiotics, so hopefully they protect me. I see my ps. Friday will ask him. I'm so tired the last couple of days.

Day 6.

Both kids are at home and I'm able to move around a lot easier. Getting up from bed is uncomfortable but doesn't hurt like it did before. I'm still icing which I think it's helped with swelling. Feel like I messed up on my pics or missed a day some how lol I may repost them after I label them. Lol. Hope this finds all yall well.

2 weeks post op *bad news*

Hey lovely ladies.

Everything has been going great my boobies are fantastic and getting softer by the day the drop and fluff is awesome.

Woke up yesterday with some drainage on the left side. Added a bandaid. Today it was worse took a pic sent to my ps. Made me remove the strips and send another pics it was green goop. Think it maybe infected seeing him today . Making twould post I have I have a lot of pics

More stitches.

So my ps. Cut away the nasty tissue and added new stitches. Go back next week to have themy removed. I'm not feeling good today.

3 weeks to 1 month post opp

So the twins look amazing. July 4 got new stiches put in, July 9 it started oozing again. I went in and had my stitches removed July 11 Dr Wallace said that it looked like it was still angry to continue the antibiotics. July 12 everything was fine. July 13 I woke up in a puddle I was covered in something at first I thought it was my ice pack that broke open because it was kind of sticky feeling but I got up and I took off my gown and it was drenched and then I am stood in the bathroom and while I was standing there it was dripping out of my boob from where the steri-strips meat so I took a picture send it to dr. Wallace and called him he met me first thing at the office to the steri-strips off and then proceeded to um push on the breast to see if any possible to come out and there was no plus it was more of an apple juice color than blood orgreen there was no green so he dumped me up once again cut incision back open washed it out with antibiotics washed it again with Betadine stitched it back watch it again with Betadine and then put antibiotic ointment on top of it and a new bandage and I'm still on antibiotics I'll be on them for another 2 weeks please pray that they heal cuz if it doesn't heal this time he's going to have to remove the implant let me heal and then I'd have to have another one put back in. My shoulder blade underneath the armpit left arm and under the left boob all hurt or really badly


on a good note they look great! I'm gonna do another post in just the good stuff.

Going through he'll

My left breast still will not heal.... they look amazing but the incision just won't do right....

Removal and healing

Hey ladies,

So I've gone through utter hell. My left chest wall, arm, shoulder blade hurt on a daily basis and have not gotten better. On July 29, 2016 my implant became exposed and we had to do an emergancy explanation . Worst feeling ever!!! Put in a drain and started me on different antibiotics. I got the drain out a week later and slowly but surely finally stopped draining GREEN puss , and the incision heald. It's still red and angry and the rest of my body hurts. But I'm looking at November to have my new implany on the left side put in.

My surgeon has been amazing through all of this. If I were to have had this problem I'm so glad that I chose him. I don't know if the other would have been so attentive and compassionate.

Hope this finds yall well.

Bottoming out / double bubble

Flexing
0:37
I'm so freaking upset last month I went to my ps to have my left incision looked at and showed him where my old fold was showing on my right breast and he said it was nothing.

Now it's getting worse and the implant looking like it is bottoming out. This is utter crap. I've wanted this my entire life for these and they are not TurNing out to what I wanted. Uhhh.

Revision

Made it past the 2 week mark both have healed up waiting on the left to drop. Prayong for no CC and no double bubble and no bottoming out!!! They are not the same size because it still needs to drop
Jacksonville Plastic Surgeon

From the very beginning. Dr. Wallace has been amazing. He not only went through the procedure thoroughly, but asked questions to where we would have the results that not only were the safest for me but also gave me the same results that I was looking for. He took care of everything from start to finish make sure that my pain was well managed and I absolutely love my results the office was Immaculate the surgery center was friendly I would recommend dr. Wallace to everyone
