I have always had small breasts and always had...
I have always had small breasts and always had friends with large natural ones. I have always desired my own breasts to feel sexy and feminine. I was given the lower half - a big butt and thick thighs - and I have a muscular frame, so acquiring a proportionate and natural chest size was on the wish list. I am very active (crossfit, trail running, volleyball, water sports, & snowboarding) and did not want breasts that would inhibit my workouts and activity level post recovery. Originally, I was under the social impression that I should just get my boobs done after I have kids. I learned that having children post BA does not alter one's ability to breastfeed or "ruin" your implants. I also wasn't planning on having kids anytime soon, so game-on!
After 3 consultations, I choose a local surgeon who I felt the most comfortable with. Originally, I felt that I wanted a mod + silicone implant, under the muscle or dual plane. Upon researching further and being educated by my surgeon, I decided that an above the muscle approach with a HP projection would best fit my active lifestyle and desired outcome.
25 years old - 0 kids - 5' 4" tall - 150 lbs
440 cc HP Sientra textured silicone round implants, placed above the muscle.
Getting softer (slowly) by the day! Weeks 1-2 were super itchy as my skin was stretching and healing. Weeks 3–4 have been different, as my nerves are healing so my nipples are very hypersensitive and almost painful and my breasts are quite tender. I can't tell that they are dropping at all through pictures, but it does FEEL like they are starting to settle down a bit.
I went back to work on my eighth day postop. I took my last percocet on day 3 at 6 am, and have had no nausea.
Dr. told me to massage my incisions a couple times a day starting at week 2.
Overall, IN LOVE with my new lady lumps!
Jiggle and softening
For those questioning the softness of the Sientra textured implants...at 1 month! still healing!!
4 months with my new girls
It has been 4 months now, doctor and I both agree that my implants have settled very well. They are perfect! I did get really bad stretch marks around 1.5 months which discouraged me from posting but they have finally begun to fade.
