I have been thinking about BA for a while. I was so excited this spring to go for it, but my job puts everything on hold, it drives me crazy. I am tall 5 10 and only 115 pound, so my body is crying for a boobs. Never had boobs. I am nervous if I will be able get implants because of my low body index. Can you explain me more what to ask PS about implants.............I don't know where to start. What is high profile? I don't want look like many pictures I see here, that boobs way up close to clavicle...I will feel devastated. I like to get more natural look. help please.....need some encouragement from you here.

wish for

dont like

PS consultation

Tomorrow is my first visit with PS.

my first PS VISIT

My ap. went well. YES, I do qualify for BA. He recommends for me Natrelle, 425cc which will gives me C cup. I am 5'10 tall he assured me couple times this will be great fit for my frame, showed me some pictures he has done on girls my shape. I am just nervous if they will not look to big on me. I would like to get C cup, but 425cc I thought is a lot..or is not?....anyone has suggestion?...please help. I thinking of booking my surgery soon...feel good about this PS.

Natrelle, teardrop 425cc

why would you pick round implant over teardrop?



Looking for top PS in NJ experienced with Sientra implants.

any suggestions?

PS consult June 23

June 23 I have consultation with another PS, hope this is the one.

June 21 I DID IT!

So, I had my first ever mammogram done today. PS requested it. It wasn't that bad and I was soooo nervous. Hope I will get good results, so I am step closer to BA.

another PS consultation

went well. I think I found right surgeon.


I feel like I was slapped in face today. I received my first ever mammogram results and found that I have extreme dense breast tissue. It means 4-5 times more chance for breast cancer. I barely have any breasts!...

June 26

I educated myself about mammograms and I am OK.

wish boobs

I am still excited! to get my boobies and perhaps to look like this?..wow

Like it

maybe a bit big for me? maybe not.

July 5 - ultrasound

live after 40.....or life with implants - get prepared mammograms, ultrasound.....so you know.hahah


thank you for all support I am getting here from all of you. XXXXX


I am still excited about my BA. I did not set date yet, till I have my ultrasound. I will know more next weekend, they postopened my ultrasound becouse of holiday...


I had my ultrasound today and I am OK. SO, GREEN LIGHT for my BA .....now is my turn. KEEP TUNED!lol


Its time to make deposit and moooove my surgery. What am I waiting for?....lol

SURGERY August 20 or 22?

can't decide....

WISH look

Very soon........I might look like this.............dream on...dream on.....lol!



nervous or cold feet?....I like to be more excited. Its not about getting boobs, more how I will deal with the pain after........my job and my personal life is very stressful now. But if my BA is done right, I might look awesome. Why I feel like this?...I should stop reading some of the reviews here, it scares me. I hope this feeling will go away.


I have to remind myself that I really want this. I would love to look like this. I just need more excitement again. What is wrong with me?



my BA surgery



can't wait to have boobs. I hope to get nice results!


My surgery is coming soon. I have pre-op on August 11th. Pre-op clearance after that and ready to go! Sooner better. Thank you each one of you, who posted here. I could never done this without your moral support. This web is awesome!. .Thank you so much! hugs, hugs.....

love this look

Pre-op done!

All is paid off. I had blood taken, urinalysis. Next week EKG, hope all will turn well and I am ready to go. I will get 300 cc implants, still deciding if I should get tear drop or round implants. BUT, one I KNOW FOR SURE THAT I WANT THIS and I am excited again. YEAH!


I am excited!

HM...maybe I should go 350cc

browsing the pictures here on this web, see the picture of girl almost slim like me and she went with 350cc and look awesome! not overwhelming at all. I just don't want to regret I did not get bigger boobies after all is done. Something to think about.

I think I am going with SIENTRA round moderate profile 350

any suggestion. anyone my statue with Sientra round results?....


My surgery is exactly a week from now. It was a long journey for me. It still feel so surreal ......I can't imagine myself with a bigger boobs.......
I just want to feel good about myself and LOVE my body...simple as that. I deserve it! now its my turn... I had tough a few years. YEAH! can't wait!
thank you for you support..my RS sisters...lol!

High Profile implants

so I got the news today...I have to go with HP implants, because of my narrow chest wall. I am nervous that I will look exactly I did not want to...........
HP implants scares me....


August 27th at 9:30am EST

DON'T think to much and RELAX!

relax, relax...


My surgery went well, but next day I woke with bad migrene and I was nauseous. I don't think this was related to surgery, because I suffer from migranes . My surgery went really well, I took percoset only twice, Tylenol twice and I stopped taking it because I did not need it. I don't have pain, I can move my arms. I took shower today. Results are nice, I will post pictures soon. I am not nauseous anymore. My surgeon was awesome, always checks on me if I am OK. She did good job on me. I am glad I picked her. Talented lady. I have Sientra HP 350cc, round.


another picture

sorry, problem downloading


I feel good. Waiting for the process to begin.....my boobies to drop a bit. I see potentials. I am comfortable and that's a good sign, because I can be very picky sometimes. I know! that I pushed 50cc more, but when they drop I wont regret it. I am tall girl, so I can hide them easily ...LOL! Today for the first time I have met some of my friends after surgery, they believed to me that I had gynecological operation(laparoscopy)...liar!!! right!....With sport bra on and loose shirt, no sign of big boobies. haha
Do not judge me, but I am old enough to know that I don't want this to share with to many people. I don't need to. We all should keep something to ourselves and this is my secret.


Today is exactly a week since my surgery. What a difference week makes. Done with antibiotics. My lazy energy is still on the lower side. I have to stop at whole foods tomorrow to get some nutritious drinks to boost my energy back. I see slight change in my boobs, I think they got smaller little. Maybe the dropping process just begun.......I like it. In that case I am happy that I pushed for more cc. I had some old bras in the house 34B and it fits me.........hm.


I did some bra shopping today, looking for only wireless and comfortable bras at TJ Max and I've tried 34B Warners , fits me like a glove. I don't care if I don't wear C or D cup, for my thin and tall petite statue I am busty enough. I FEEL SEXY!
Why I did not have BA done a long time ago........?????


to be honest, I am actually the proud owner of 34C. I feel like a woman. finally. lol.

side view

favorite sport bra

BALI is my favorite, very comfortable. I order 3 more in different colors, looks like I will be wearing them for a while.


Is it true, that I will have to sleep on my back for 6 weeks after surgery?...way to long.........


Could my boobs get smaller, I feel like I see changes day 13, 14....like they got smaller. Or is it just me....because I am checking them all the time. My nipples are finally less sensitive day 13, 14..... they don't stick out as much....


my persona has changed so much. I was always self conscious about my body, more than I should, for my age I am very blessed, but I guess I never appreciated it till now.
I love my boobs so much, I like to be naked all the time (in my house of course)...LOL! So, I guess my BA did purpose.....I wanted to achieve LOVE for myself and I DID! I simply LOVE myself! and that is where love starts.... right?!

Scar treatment

what do you recommend for scar treatment. Can I use Arnica gel?

HAPPY camper...

It's been 3 weeks since my surgery. I don't see much change , except that they got softer. Still love my boobs so much , it's such a empowering feeling...I love it! They disappear under my clothes, but it's a different story when I get undressed...lol!.... I will post more picture soon. It's amazing feeling, hope without complications in the future.


WOW a month already!


For the first time in my life, I am not ashamed to be topless. What a feeling!

Here I am 6 weeks post -op!

Feeling great!

little update

When I look back, I was flat chested all my life and very thin, tall...but I was professional by covering it, wearing extra padded bras, stuffing them....hahah. I would have never got undressed in front of anyone, even bra shopping with my best friend I would feel so self conscious and hide my imperfection. I almost felt humiliated if someone I knew walked on me by accident when I was undressing...and that is sick.... My love life, I am and I was always lucky...that was not the issue. You don't have to have huge boobies to find the right guy. I sympathize with small chested women, if you are comfortable with your body that is sooooo awesome. But I was not comfortable with my body, also being tall and thin ...my body obviously needed some curves. What I am trying to say is, if you hate your body so much than do something about it. You don't have to feel less.... but make sure that after this experience you will find your inner peace. remember...nobody is perfect....there are many girls in this world, even big boobs don't make them happy. xoxox


please help. any suggestions what is the best for the scars. I am 6 weeks post-op and my scars drive me crazy, they are healing nicely but some parts where the scab comes off, bleeds....bra doesn't help either. I use scar away....but I am not crazy about it....

8 weeks post-op

Feeling good, feel more myself now, I can finally lift heavier things, which I love ...
My incision are slowly disappearing, but they are still visible. I am doing my massages and praying for zero complications(capsular contractions).
Otherwise, my girls are spectacular, still love to get undressed and see myself toplessLOL!!!!.
Size? I am full C, but when I get dressed you don't see too much projection, sometimes I wish I went bigger, I think I lost some cc, but still love them. They look and feel like part of me. Congrats to all of you, who did it, wish you all speedy recovery and to new girls " welcome in".... xoxo

2 months post-op with my lovely Surgeon

So, I had 2 months post op today. My Dr. saw me 4 times after surgery, what an awesome experience, that she cares so much about me, even after surgery. Next visit will be in January and after that I guess that's it, I am on my own with my girls....LOL!
Can't wear wire or push up bras, oh well.....by next summer all will be healed and settled and I will push them a bit to get that cleavage( classy of course) hahha...
I feel good! Finally physically stronger, that was only downside for me after surgery. Overall good experience! I wish I did this in my 20ties. Nothing in life is so rewarding, like good health and loving yourself. Its great to love our kids, husbands, parents, friends.....but loving YOU is the core!....


I've read many reviews here and I am realizing how lucky I was or....
I remember going to operating room thinking, jeez how can I escape this.....am I crazy for doing this? this will be so painful. My hubby was waiting for me in the waiting room and I wouldn't dare to tell him I have a second thought. We went through a lot before got to this, my mammograms ...etc. Dr. told me before she took me to the operating room " ok Ali, you will experience heaviness on your chest, like the elephant sits on it and your breathing will be effected also. " I am thinking " beautiful ....!!! elephant, breathing" this sound really scary.... but I went in, I just couldn't run! lol....
My surgery lasted an hour, that's what my PS told me. I remember when I woke I was very nauseous, the nurse wheeled me to the car and we went home. I never had the pain, to me pain is something burning, inflamed ...this was not like that with me, so I don't understand what other girls experience and I feel sorry for them. I only experience pressure in my chest, especially when I had to get up or turn or get up. And my nipples were sticking out and super sensitive. I honestly took only 2 percosets and after that I took two Tylenols, but I did not need it. I might admit that my energy level was bad, I was very week for a few days, probably from throwing up for 3 days, till I got to my dr. office and she prescribed anti-nauseous pill and that worked like magic. I got stronger week later and each week even more, but still could not do everything. I must say week 6 I was back to myself, I could heavy lift. So, this was my experience...all true! I needed 3 weeks off from my work. And by the way, the elephant did not sit on my chest....it was not as bad...???!!! ok....maybe baby elephant! LOL
Good luck to you if you are considering BA and smooth recovery like mine.

BACK to normal!

I must say that I am 100% back to normal. I have my strength completely. Feel my boobs like they belong to me, getting softer. My right boob is still a bit high and scars are still visible, but this will take a months till they completely disappear. My surgery was on August 27, 2014. And..yes...I wish I went bigger!!!.... Hoping for no complications ahead.

I WISH I went biger, but love them anyway

I was like all girls here, freaking out what size to get, it was driving me crazy. My PS recommended 300cc, because I was leaning towards the natural look, but a week before surgery I pushed to 350cc, well actually I am 355cc( sientra ). After surgery I was pretty big, well week 8 -9 I am noticing that my girls got smaller. I guess after massaging, moving implant around and dropping, here I am with the final result. You will loose volume down the road. I am tall and slim and I should have listen girls giving me advice before surgery, go bigger. I still look lovely and love them so much when I am topless, but I wish sometimes I went bigger 450cc. Even with 450cc I would have looked natural.


I feel fine now, that guilty feeling I should have gone bigger is not there anymore. Yes, I would have looked more curvy, but I appreciate what I've got. I love my boobies and I am happy that so far I don't have any complications.


do you massage your boobs even 4 months after surgery? I am almost 4 month post-op and I have smooth silicone implants. I just got lazy ...

Experiencing rippling

Thin girls with little breast tissue be aware you may experience rippling later on, if you go too big. I am only 350cc and in a few weeks I will be 4 months post-op. A week ago I noticed rippling on the inner side of my right breast, its not too bad but it is there and I guess nothing I can do about it. If I went bigger, it would have been way more noticeable and I would have been very unhappy. I am still in love with my boobies, they still look perky and are so soft. I know that I had regrets earlier that I should have gone bigger, now I know for sure if I ever have to do this again I will stick only with 350cc and no more. I will post pictures soon. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU! hugs...


Merry Christmas to all my RS friends. Happy and Healthy New Year!

I rarely come to this webstite anymore. but I thought to do little update almost 2 yrs later. I am doing fine, feel great. I do wish I went bigger, but I am OK with it. only issue I have is that my right nipple is sticking out of my bra sometimes, I also know that I can't do nothing about it. I am not doing any revision surgery., rather count my blessings. wishing you all ,lots of courage and speedy healing through the new journey in life. It was worth it. at least for me. hugs.(Iwent 355cc from nothing, ended up with full C cup, but sometime it feels like full B cup- FYI )
Ridgewood Plastic Surgeon

Awesome doctor. If you are looking for one of the finest plastic surgeon in NJ, I think she is. Lovely, lovely lady, very talented. My surgery went well, no complications, not much pain after surgery. Thank you Dr. Pedy Ganchi and to your lovely staff, I am so happy that I found you. When I met Dr. Ganchi for the first time I knew it she is the right surgeon for me. She is very professional, caring and very friendly Dr. I highly recommend Dr. to anyone, who consider BA in New Jersey area. Excellent post op care. It's amaze me how I feel good about myself after all that experience. Wish I have done it many years ago. I feel so beautiful.
