Following a relationship breakup in 2001, I decided that implants would give me the confidence that I lacked. The surgery was performed by a doctor in Australia. I had small perky B cups. I told the surgeon I wanted to be a small C cup (or just a C). The surgeon advised that I probably wouldn’t be happy with a small C and would probably have to spend more money and come back for more surgery. He suggested a full C. I went with my surgeon’s advice and had saline tear drop implants inserted above the muscle via incisions below the breast. I can't remember the size recommended by the surgeon. When I came out of surgery I thought OMG! They are huge. When I had my first follow up and said they were huge, the surgeon told me they would settle that I was still swollen from the surgery. Eleven years later I am still waiting for them to settle I am a DD.
I enjoy exercising and just feel these breasts are not me. I don't like how I look in clothes and feel like I am always trying to cover up. I have had no problems with the implants, however have had some slight rippling in the left breast that is not visible, but I can feel it. They make me look bigger than what I really am and I find myself longing for my small B Cups. I have had a consultation with a surgeon in Marina Del Ray, total cost including his fee, Operating Room and Anesthesia is $7,500! Wow that’s almost how much I paid to have the breast implants in the first place. I am now looking for another surgeon in the LA area and hopefully have found one in Valencia after reading someone’s blog on this site. If anyone has any recommendations I would be grateful! I am a little worried about how my breasts will look after the surgery. I breastfed my daughter with the implants 7 years ago, so I am worried what they will look without the implants. The Dr I saw in Marina Del Ray said I would probably be a full A, small B. But at least I will be my natural self. I can’t wait to find a surgeon and have them out – the sooner the better! I have found this site so helpful, and don’t think I would have the confidence to go ahead without reading everyone’s journey.
