I appreciate the skill of my doctor as I just had my eyes, face and neck lifted. Last year I did my tummy tuck and next is new girls. I am excited to have it done in time for the summer. I love wearing tank tops. I lost 150 pounds 3 years ago and had 3 sons that sucked the life out of my boobs so they hang low. I am 5 7" and 175 pounds. I am trying to take off 10 pounds before surgery mid April. The goal of hot boobs is worth it!
April 1st will be my day!
So excited for this surgery.
So excited to get this date. My fiancé and I tried doing the rice bags to see the size I will like and it looked good with about 275 cc in each. I will see what the doctor thinks when we go on the 17th.
Hi all! .... I went for my sizing last night and boy did I get an education. Well no lipo for me on my bra side flabby skin. He is going to take my sides and tuck them in to help support the implant. I support you go to your sizing appt with the bra in your wish size along with a tank top ....even take a bathing suit top. Try on the sizers with the different tops. ...I'm so glad I did. I am looking at the breast lift bringing me to a C cup and decided with my fiancés help going DD.... going with silicone as my doctor suggested for the extra money so no chance of ripples. Going under the muscle for a natural look and feel. He will use sizers during the surgery to make sure we achieve our goals. I took wish pictures with me so he had a visual on the upper pole high profile look I dream about. I have till the end of the week to pick put my brand. He can get anyone I pick. I'm leaning to a special he has with a company that offers free Botox with their brand. I need some in my 11 lines between my eyebrows as I did not opt for a brow lift with the facelift. He will not be using drains if I'm not bleeding bad...so happy. He does not wrap up the boobs just uses a medical sports bra for sport. Massages start after one week and critical for healing. I should heal well with the scars ask did for my tummy and face. I will update more soon.
5 more days ...
I'm getting ready for April 1 st. Nesting, shopping, cleaning and trying to stay calm. I feel like there is so much to do before my surgery. I keep doing research on the lift with implants and I feel totally confident in my doctor. We are going with the mentor high profile brand. I pray to get the 38 DD results I dream about.
I dream about this picture.
I'm taking this picture in the day of surgery as this is my favorite....RIP Anna. I showed the doctor all my inspiration pictures.... he was patient with me as we looked together at my goals for the surgery.
Ready for surgery day...
Tomorrow around 8 am I will be in for my lift with implants. I am very nervous and met with the doctor today to make some final adjustments. He may use 500cc depending on the size of the area once he goes in. I did pick mentor high profile and think that was a good fit for my 5 7" height and 170 pound weight. I will let you know what the final size he used when I come back to update in a few days.
2 days after...
Surgery complete.....ouch! There is just a nagging dull throbbing pain in the breast. I got mentor smooth round high profile 475cc in each breast. He could not fit anything bigger under the muscle. What we can see so far they look good. I should be a 38 d or maybe close to dd. I'm not going to be hung up on size as long as they are cute and perky looking. At my age even with a lift I may have sagging again. I can see myself sleeping in sports bras for years to come. My doctor says creams and gels will not make a difference on healing with the boobs so no butters or bio oil for me We will start massages on Monday and he gave me dissolving stitches ....so happy about that. So far no itching going on. I am taking Percocet only when it's bad and other times just Tylenol. I will start neosporin on stitches this weekend. I can take a shower today ...happy dance! Hope you are all doing great and healing well. The weather here in NY has been great. I'm going to get some fresh air next. Xo Barbara
Massages and Scar cream...
Things are coming along on target. I feel some itching and dull pain here and there. I do feel tightness which can be uncomfortable. I can lift my arms which is a good thing. I have been massaging breasts and scar areas too. I have the lollipop scar and under full scar. The breasts feel good and so far still high on some days and dr on others. My doctor did a great job and I have faith they will look full round and perky! Have a good day!
Dissolving stitches are amazing!
The skill of my surgeon and the use of dissolving stitches have made my healing move along faster than I could imagine. I love my new girls...now we need to name hem! Lol He gave me the new Annika forte pills that have brome lain in them by DermAdvance and I feel that worked great for little bruising and healing. No more pain, energy coming back, scars staying soft, doing massages, feeling back in nipples and right back to hot alone time with my love! Have a good day!
Happy Days...I have perky and hot boobs! According to my fiancé lolol
Things are coming along very well with healing. My scars are looking better each day. I should be a 38 DD in most bras. I tried on my vs and that size fit...doing the happy dance over new perky boobs. I saw the doctor a few times and very happy with my results. I have been doing the light touch massages to all areas and focus on the scar areas too. I try to get them to tingle so the nerve ending wake up. I feel very blessed to have a doctor that would do the lift with implants...thank you Dr. Decorato!
Still so happy!
Healing is going great. I gained 2 pounds from the new girls. I hope to get back to full exercising soon. My muscle tone is like jello now. Feelings are back in all parts of my breasts and finally in a regular bra by day and sport bra most nights. My scars are doing good and based on experience it will take up to a year to look all healed. I am using biocornium scar gel along with massaging the scar area and full breasts. I am wearing a size 38dd and very happy! I hope you are all healing well. I will send the pictures to those of you who wrote to me. All the best! Barbara
These are they pictures I took to my doctor and asked him to make me look like this. Using pictures helps you communicate your goals to the doctor.
Lift with implants....
Yes I got a lift with implants. I knew I wanted to be larger and having a lift alone could bring me to only a size b. So
I did my research on the success rate of my doctor on the lift/implant and trusted that he could reach my goals and he did! I was a small 38 c and now a full 38 dd.
2 months are doing great!
This journey is going great. I continue doing massages and using scar gel. I am blessed with good healing. I am wearing 38 DD and so happy with the twins! My fiancé is loving them too! He took me to the Victoria secret outlet and all bras are 19.99 there....thank you my love! Have a great day!
Very happy with my results.

Thank you for stopping by here. I am so very happy with my results and grateful to my doctor for doing the lift and Implant combo all at once. I have full sensation back and no bad scarring issues. The only issue I have is hen I lay down they fall into the side area so my front is flat. Weird feeling. I wear sexy bras by day and sports bras at night. You do get used to sleeping with them. I'm so happy at 54 to have hot looking girls! And I can wear a 36 ddd or the sister size 38 dd. Fun fun!
