Older Lady Wants to Be a D or Even a DD Cup Again. - Topeka, KS

First of all I am 59 years young....and way back...

First of all I am 59 years young....and way back in 1988 I was a 34 A 5'3" and weighed 110.I got my first set of implants while in Florida ,they were 500 cc silicone placed under the muscle.I wore them very proudly for 21 years until my grown stepson put a bear hug on me and inadvertantly ruptured the right implant.Well I tried not to be angry ,they were too old and needed replacing anyway.So in 2009 I finally had them removed,no worse for the wear as most of the loose silicone granulomas were removed.I still have a few the doc couldnt remove etc.so now its 2015 and I am 36 B and just because I am 59 doesn't mean I no longer care how I look so the 23rd of January (in 6 days in fact) I will have my very qualified P S place in my empty breasts either a 400 cc or 430 cc HP silicone implants .I am not sure if they will be under the muscle or under the breast tissue.All I care about is that I am aD cup or even a DD.OF COURSE I want them to look nice.I have not forgotten how painful this procedure can be so I dread that.I will attempt to supply photos of my post removal breast and then later my post revision augmentation pics.Stay tuned...........

here are my pics of my breasts-post implant removal.

Today is Sunday,can't get my mind off my pending surgery.I have some things to do around the house before Friday.I need to get out of my haze and hop to it.I have to say my Dr.,Jack Peterson is awesome,he's been patient with me on sizing of implants.......I don't know whether to go with 400 cc,430 cc or now possibly 480 cc??I feel like I should listen to him ,he's performed more of these surgerys than I have LOL.His patient coordinator Mary is very nice ans has helped me understand alot about this process also.I can't stand waiting but I guess I should I've waited 5 yrs. so whats 5 more days!

Tomorow is my boob day! Yay!

Well I have finally made it to Thursday, have to go in am to hospital, be there at 9:30.Surgery to begin at 11:30.I have alot to do today to get almost ready.I have been eating too much so I have gained 6 lbs since Thanksgiving.I am not happy about it either but will drop it as soon as spring arrives and csn get back to walking.My sweet daughter is worried for me to go under for surgery because of my age (59).I have tried to convince her I will be fine.She remembers my first BA and all the pain.She was 8 yrs old then and flew with me to Florida then.She did all of the reaching, lifting etc for me then.I will try to post pist op and later pics.Oh my hope my boobie angel tells the Dr.to not be stingy with the cc' s of silicone tomorrow.I have to be a full D at the end.I have an older daughter who is no longer on this earth, she was a DD after her saline implants were inserted.Those implants never looked right, they were overfilled to the max.When she would lay down the boobs stayed up on her chest, they didn't fall over to each side as they should.She had her BA when silicone was not allowed for awhile during early 2000's.Oh well I am rambling so so Friday I will join the large boobed crowd.See ya on the other side hopefully well endowed.Thanks to all who have commented.Take care and God bless all of you nice ladies.

Finally the day has arrived!By tonite I will have breasts again!Surgery due today at 11:30 !

I CAN HARDLY WAIT.DON'T FEEL TOO NERVOUS YET BUT OF COURSE I AM STILL AT HOME.......NERVES WILL HIT WHEN I ARRIVE AT THE HOSPITAL.GOT MY NICEST PJS PACKED TO BRING WITH ME .PUT EM ON BEFORE I GO HOME.HOPE MY DOG DOESN'T POUNCE ON MY CHEST WHEN I COME HOME.
I WON'T POST ANY PICS TONITE,WILL TRY TOMORROW PROVIDED I FEEL WELL ENOUGH.I HAVE HAD A HORRIBLE RECURRING THOUGHT:WHAT IF I WAKE UP IN RECOVERY ONLY TO FIND OUT THEY COULDN'T DO MY SURGERY DUE TO SCAR TISSUE ETC IN MY RIGHT BREAST(DUE TO FORMER RUPTURE AND SCARRING IN RIGHT BREAST)!!!OH I KNOW THAT WON'T COME TRUE,FUNNY WHERE OUR MINDS GO WHEN WE WANT SOMETHING SO BADLY! GOOD MORNING AND I HOPE ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY AND WEEKEND,BE GOOD TO YOURSELVES.

I HAVE 2 POST OP PICS,WILL TRY TO TAKE MORE SUNDAY WHEN I TAKE SHOWER....

Sorry this update is so long in coming.not much pain so far,relieved about that.I have 435 cc implants,don't know if they are overs or undies.Have to wear this bra -vest thing till I shower Sunday then put it back on.I am pleased so far just don't know what is in this bra thing yet.I am very tired so will post and updàte with more tomorrow.Girls get a good nights sleep.I am sleeping in my recliner tonite.Dr. Peterson is a great Dr. With a good bedside manner and knows his business.Good-night ladies.........thanks for helping this be a positive experience.
PS-I have taken laxative tonite and I have the bloated tummy everyone says will happen just so long as my boobies aren't all bloat!LOL!

Had a little more pain in lower area of my breast......

Not half as much pain as in 1988 tho.I slept in bed comfortably just woke up every hour when I would feel the desire to roll over to my side.I would wake up and not turn over.just turn my head a little.I haven't had bm yet(actually its been 4 days because I stay constipated always). I will keep an eye on that issue.....been checking out some nice bras online.I already feel complete now ,not as if I am missing a piece of me.It did a number on me and my self-esteem when I had mine removed because of a rupture.I thought well I'm older now and won't mind being without my big D cup boobies,man was I wrong!I grieved for them,missed them ,got so tired of not being able to fit most bras unless super padded like some of the v/s bras.My little yorky has been so good,he wanted to sleep in bed last night so we did.So I will be turning in soon and will post more pics and update tomorrow.Have a good sleep and dream of your new or old boobies.......

Sooo Glad I did it!

I promised post op pics while bra off so I hope these print n post ok.I've had a more pain today but not like I had before.No drainage, redness, warmth at all which is good.I will be glad to see them after the swelling goes down.I do believe I have the D cups I wanted so badly back!!! Yay! I love them and feel great knowing I am complete again.will post more pics in a couple weeks.Everyone please take care and be aware of the Tylenol I read everyones taking for their pain.I t doesn't take much of it to damage your liver and kidneys.Especially with a glass of wine etc.Just Sayin.Good nite friends........

Day 5 after surgery,still doing great!

As most readers of my previous review know I had my BA on Friday the 23rd last week.This is my second BA and I am doing so well post-op.Barely any pain,Dr.Peterson didn't order me to wear the dreaded strap I've heard stories of......I do my dressing changes everyday with antibiotic ointment placed on line of incisions.I actully have steristrips on the outside with dissolvable stitches on inside.I change into a freshly laundered surgical bra after drsg.change.I appear to be a definate D cup as I wanted.These Doctors know what they are doing! I am very pleased with my result so far and am glad I listened to Dr.Peterson,he told me the size implant I required to be the cup size I was seeking .I thought at first I should go with a larger implant than 435cc ,my dr. said it wouldn't look right on me with my height.He was correct.I am a 36D now.Again.I would recommend to any lady that's unhappy with their breast size to request Dr.Jack Peterson here in Topeka,Kansas.He is very knowledgable in what he performs,has an excellant bedside manner and has a very nice and willing staff.If you have questions there is Mary. She is Dr.Peterson's patient co-ordinator.She helps with size choice ,anything you need to be informed on before surgery.I will post more pics later today.I hope all of you gracious ladies are doing well either post-operative or if you are still just thinking about Breast Augmentation.Later.........

Now I have had my breasts for 8 days.

Update:HAD MY FIRST POST -OP VISIT WITH MY PS.....HE SAID EVERYTHING IS GREAT,I HAVE TO WEAR THIS DAMN BRA-VEZT THING FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER WEEK,I SEE HIM AGAIN NEXT FRIDAY THEN HOPEDULLY I CAN CHUCK THE 2 BRAS FROM HELL HE WANTS ME TO WEAR!I LOVE MY NEW BREASTS,THEY ARE DROPPING SLOWLY WOULD RATHER THEY DROP SLOWLY NOT TOO QUICKLY (FEAR OF BOTTOMING OUT)AND I THINK THE SIZE IS PERFECT 36 D.SINCE I KEPT SOME OF MY BRAS FROM WHEN I WAS A PREVIOUS 36 D IN 2008 I CAN WAER THEM AS SOON AS I CAN STOP WEARING THE SURGSURGICAL BRA MY PS ORDERED ME TO WEAR.I AM MASSAGING THEM 3OR 4 TIMES ADAY AND ALREADY HAVE A GREAT CLEAVAGE.OH AND ANOTHER GOOD THING IS I WAS STRETCHED OUT IN BACK AREA OF MY ARMPIT AND ALWAYS HAD BRA FAT HANGING OVER FROM MY PREVIOUS IMPLANTS WHICH WERE TOO LARGE FOR MY CHEST MEASUREMENT,WELL THE NEW IMPLANTS HAVE CURED ALL OF THAT!!THEY ARE SIENTRA HP 435 CC AND THEY FIT LIKE A DREAM,THEY ARE EXACTLY A FIT.AGAIN I AM KINDA SMALL 5' 2 " WEIGHT(CURRENTRLY)130 LBS.WHEN I WAS YOUNGER IN 1988 I WAS 5' 3" 112 LBS.BUT I NEED TO LOSE AT LEAST 10 ILBS AND GET IN BETTER SHAPE TO BE HEALTHY.I PROMISE I WILL POST MORE PICS IN VERY NEAR FUTURE.THIS PROCEDURE HAS BEEN SO GREAT!PROVES NO ONE IS TOO OLD TO WANT A NICE PROPORTUNATE BODY SIZE.AND BESIDES THE OLD DIRTY MEN LIKE A WELL ENDOWED LADY AS WELL!LOL!!

here's my post op pics -day 9

Getting softer!

I am in love with my breasts now and I even get to sleep with them!!They're getting softer and I tried on a regular bra yesterday for 20 min(don't tell my ps)and my chest and breast looked soo much better!Actually pretty again....no more stuffing padded bras with chicken cutlets that fall out when you are walking up the sidewalk at your best friends house.I'm telling you that really happened to me!One of them fell right out and it hit the sidewalk!THANK GOD no one saw it but me!This happened not long after I had my ruptured implants removd...I felt like crying.....I woulda kept the ruptured implant in had I knew how stretched out and wrinkled,flat ,empty ,flat tire looking ugly my miserable so called breasts looked and even my husband didn't like my empty breasts.I was ashamed for him to see them even.God has to be a female cause she invented Plastic Surgeons that can remake our breasts!
I posted 2 pics yesterday of my boobs and how they are looking 1 week after.I pray none of you wonderful girls ever has to experience a rupture or removal of your implants....and never put those damn cutlet things in a bra and try to look sassy cause sure as you do ...PLOP...out that thing will come right in your friends face or lap.You can laugh at it after awhile(I did) but when it happens in front of someone you will be so embarressed!Now we don't need those cutlets in our bras anymore!YAY!! ÝAY!!

Happy healing to all!!

Good afternoon ladies ,hope all are healing well or not getting too bummed out waiting for your surgery....It WILL happen to! You WILL get your turn at the knife......and You WILL be beautiful !! You are all gonna feel some pain, some more than others ,but it's worth it.I think I was so fortunate to not have alot of pain due to having a prior BA.I did all my suffering in June 1988.
I have had alittle achyness in my boobs today and some bee stings in them.....all in the healing process, not to worry .I cannot wait to stop wearing this damn vest apparatis tho.I have read some of you don't have to wear such a thing.....or you are wearing a sports bra that supports well.I checked in my drawer of D cup bras I saved from 2009 ,I don't own a true sports bra,I got to buy one.I really need a couch potato bra not a sports bra...I promise I do NO sports and I mean NO RECREATIONAL SPORTS either if you get my meaning( that's all on a different web site). All I do since I am retired is watch tv,feel my boobs,feed my dog and cat,feel my boobs,eat,feel my boobs,and occasionally talk to my husband about why he won't feel my boobs.He says it's because they aren't healed yet.Bet all of you younger ladies are grossing out,I mean at my age 59 I should not have even wanted new boobs.I did this for me only.I happen to like feeling my boobs.Seriously I like this site and too bad we older ladies didn't have such a good way to know what to expect.I had a girlfriend back in 88 ,she moved from Texas back to Florida,got her first boob job through the armpits and hated her results she said they were hanging almost in her armpits so she went to a Dr.Fell in Ft,Myers and he did a revision through the inframammary site(I think thats under the breast )The last time I saw her in 1997 she loved them.She said the 2nd surgery didn't hurt half as bad as the first time.I don't see her anymore but I wonder if hers ruptured,or she just wanted new implants or just had them removed.I plan on being buried in my implants with a low cut top on ,I won't be alive to see the looks of disgust or horror at a 90 yr old huzzy lying there still showing off her tits!

HERES MORE PICS.....

All my steri strips came off today ! I used a mirror to see underneath my boobs to see how they are healing.Looks ok considering I have had them cut open on the same incision line 3 times.Hope all are good, if you live here in the midwest(Kansas) get ready to refreeze again.This gives you the perfect excuse to feel your boobs....gotta keep them warm....don't want them puppies to get frostbit! Later my friends,

ANSWERS TO SOME QUESTIONS AND TO SAY HELLO!

First of all I must say I have felt incrediable during my recovery.In answer to question if ps used same incision scar for my ba as first ba,yes he did ,actually he used same scar line to remove my old implants as well for a total of 3 times on same incision line.I could have used a lift but I am afraid of them so I told myps absolutely do not perform a lift on me.He measured all over my chest and said I don't need one.Thank God!I have seen and heard of awful scarring results from lifts.I read a review here yesterday in the revision section ,that poor lady lost her nipple and areola!She stated was not Dr's fault.So I will just have to get used to my boobs sagging someday.I never breast fed my 3 children Maybe thats why I got by without a lift.But hey I am doing so well.....tomorow (Friday) I have my 2nd post op visit with my ps......I am hoping like crazy he tells me I can wear a normal or a sports bra even.I have been wearing this ugly bra thing that zips up front!the necline of it is so high I can't wear anything but high necked tops or stay home.I will check my comments to see if there are more of you greatwomen with comments or questions....will answer asap,wish me luck for tomorow....

The dreaded surgical vest-bra is sorta off but not quite all the way off......

Saw Dr.Peterson on Friday,he says everything is healing well ,I go back to see him on Feb.23 .My boobs will be 1 month old then.He told me I don't have to wear the bra vest anymore! Since I traded bra vest for a sports bra(which he ordered me to wear now)if I move wrong,bend over to pick up something not heavy,I feel a burning sharp pain in the right breast.So to be careful I slept in bra vest and then today I am wearing 2 sports bras to achieve the tight support and prevent the pain I described.I believe the pain is in stitches he placed in my right breast ,I hope every thing is ok.I will sleep in bra vest for a while and wear sports bra during day time.Oh I ordered a Victorias Secret bra in black size 34 DD .I know that's larger than I need but the push up bras at V/S run small on me.I hope it fits.Anyway I am still using triple antibiotic ointment and peroxide every day I do drsg change.Hope all are healing well too,and those waiting for surgery be sure of your size choice,I told my Dr. "I would rather be too big than too small".We all get greedy when we see ourselves after a while.Just be aware of the size and look you want and the number of cc's that can produce that look.I am happy with my look considering I am 59yrs old and thought for awhile my husband wasn't into my getting new ones.I waited 5 years until we could afford it,its like when you wait to have a baby when you can afford it,cause you will never be able in reality to afford it but you have it anyway.I love my Dr. As well.In the near future I am goin g to him for fillers in my face as I have osteoporosis and I have lost bone in my face thus producing wrinkles and sagging.That's for another section of Real Self.Have a good day girls and don't forget to FEEL YOUR BOOBS !!

No more Bee stings!

I HAD POSTED I THINK ON FRIDAY I WAS EXPERIENCING "BEE STINGS" IN MY RIGHT BREAST AFTER I STOPPED WEARING THE BRA VEST THING AND SWITCHED TO A SPORTS BRA PER DR.'S ORDER ,WELL THEY ARE GONE NOW SO I FEEL ALOT BETTER.I WAS WORRIED THAT STITCHES WERE RIPPING OUT ETC.I TEND TO OVER THINK MY ISSUES.THEY ARE DOING WELL,SO GREATFUL TO MY HUSBAND FOR AGREEING TO MY GETTING REPLACEMENTS.I LOVE MY BREASTS AGAIN NOW.I SPENT 5 YEARS IN DEPRESSION AND DISSAPOINTMENT AND REPLAYED IN MY HEAD THE SOUND MY OTHER IMPLANT MADE WHEN IT POPPED.I HEARD AND FELT IT.A MONTH LATER I COULD FEEL THE SILICONE WHERE IT LEAKED OUT,THE LUMPS BECAME ENCAPSOLATED WITH MY OWN TISSUE IN MY BODY ATTEMPTED TO WALL OFF THE RAW SILICONE .THE MEDICAL TERM WAS CALLED GRANULOMAS.WHEN I HAD MY MAMMOGRAM AFTER THE INCIDENT,MY RADIOLIGIST WAS SPOT ON IN SEEING IT AND CALLED ME IN HIS OFFICE TO TELL ME.I LEFT HIS OFFICE FEELING SO DEPRESSED BECAUSE I KNEW WE COULDN'T AFFORD FOR A YEAR AT LEAST TO HAVE BOTH IMPLANTS REMOVED.I DIDN'T FEEL WHOLE ANYMORE.I FELT DEFECTIVE.THAT ALL HAPPENED IN 2007 AND I HAD THE IMPLANTS REMOVED IN 2009.SO I GUESS IT WAS MORE THAN 5 YRS TO WAIT.I NEVER GAVE UP WANTING MY NEW BREASTS AND I LET MY HUBBY KNOW I AM GOING TO GET REPLACEMENTS!!GIRLS NEVER LET ANYONE PUT THEIR HANDS OR ARMS ON YOU WITHOUT PERMISSION,I DON'T CARE HOW OLD YOUR IMPLANTS ARE....THEY ARE IN YOUR BODY AND NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO DO ANYTHING TO YOU THATS NOT WELCOMED.I REALIZED LATER IF I WAS A BITCH I COULD HAVE FILED ASSAULT CHARGES ON MY STEPSON!COURSE I WOULD NEVER DO THAT BUT I SAY THIS TO HELP ANYONE SEE HOW SERIOUS IT IS FOR WOMEN TO BE HANDLED INCORRECTLY.WE ARE GENTLE CREATURES NOT EXERCISE EQUIPMENT!!I APOLIGIZE FOR GOING ON AND ON .

Well I just got first 2 tape burns healed when I got another one yesterday! I am so ready to get theze drsgs off and stop with the tape.i am terrified of getting an infection in my boobs so I am very careful around incisions under my breasts.I didn't think I was pulling tape off too quickly but I did.Next Monday I will be given the go ahead bout not needing drsgs.I am in love still with my boobs , anxious to wear any bra I choose ttoo.I will post a couple pics from last week .Happy Boobies to all!

no news is good news pics would be better

Love my boobs!

I have my 2 mo post op on Monday.

I haven't posted in about a month! I will see my PS Dr.Jack Peterson on Monday!I am looking forward to seeing him and him giving me an ok to wear underwire bras ,or any other bra I want.My breasts are still bouncy and high enough!Yay!But most importantly they are still big and soft!I love them and couldn't be more pleased with their outcome!This being a sorta long term revision was a real surprise for me with barely any pain after my revision surgery.I will post more pics asap.My only complaint is I need to drop 15 pounds I have gained since October!oh by the way how are these implants weighed?I mean like when I weigh myself how much does each I guess cc weigh?Each of my implants contain 435 ccs of silicone.I will try to remember to ask my PS on Monday.

here are a couple recent pics in V/S bra.

Oh how I love my breasts!

Doing very well at 10 weeks.No pain noted anywhere....been busy shopping online at V/S.I love this site!There are some very nice women that are getting BA's and revisions.I wish that all of your wishes come true!Keep on posting..this site is addictive.....I get on here and don't know when to get off!

trying to get new photos posted!

Well if I ever get these pics downloaded....

I can't post these pics!!!

If i ever get these pics to download!

I finally got them on here!took 2 hours and lost all of the typing.....later friends!

This site can get an attitude sometimes it told me this space can not be empty!

Boy when it rains it pours!

Last time I attempted to post pics I had a hell of a time and then they are on twice!Go figure!I really enjoy all of the storys I read.When I started out I was in the Augmentation portion of this siite,then found revision section,havent been back.Just finished my 1 mile walk,I hate exercise but I see all of you 20 somethings on here with flat tummys and such and I want to lose 15 lbs I gained over the winter.I am a retired nurse so I dont have alot to do everyday and its easy to gain weight after menopause.besides I want to be healthy and not be an elderly older lady but act and feel young as my mind is.
I get afraid something bad is gonna happen to my breasts because I have had such a good result and healed so well and quickly.I am a pessimist and expect the worst endings in all I do.I need to stop fearing the worst and see the beauty of life as all it is.......a wonderful beautiful thing without any monsters hiding to hurt me in the future.
I am waiting till I am 6 months before I post anymore pics.THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND OBSERVATIONS.Till later......

why am I feeling pains in left breast......now?

Well I knew it was gonna too good to be true.All weekend have had odd pains here and there in my left breast....damn it....I massaged it a little last week after being told not to massage by my PS.....???I asked my PS when I was a month along if I should start massaging my breast (my previous ba I wS instructed to massage daily to possibly help prevent a CC from forming)so I figured this Dr. would instruct the same....but no he said.I listened but I kept feeling like I should so I massaged a little bit and noww ....this pain its not bad its just new.What do you all think its from?My left breast is soft still,looks symetric.no change in shape or size.What should I do?Go ahead and massage or not?I dont want to call my ps because he will expect more fees and I honestly can't afford more fees.I will keep a close eye on them.Could this just be more dropping and fluffing due to my massaging?

no pains today,just more healing I hope.....

Well so far so good,no more weird pains in Left breast.I am gonna stop fretting and just enjoy them as one of you ladies recommended!They are mine and I love them!Best of luck and Best Wishes for good healing!

NO MORE MAMMAGRAMS!

Ugh...On Monday I had a mammagram ordered by my gyno....well now I have a weird feeling ridge of the implants at top of my breasts!I have been waiting to let them settle and no change.so now I am calling PS Monday to get seen for this!I am so pissed at technician who did my mammagram!I had called my PS before apptment to check if was ok at this point to have it done (6 mo)and was told by receptionist it was fine.First of all the tech had a difficult time getting pictures without implant in it so she tried something "different" she said .By now she's taken 8 pictures!I understand with implants it can be difficult to take mammagram pictures but 8 times?I am also calling center where it was done and COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS TECH!I only pray dr.can manipulate them or something to place them back where they belong??I have no idea what this did to my breasts but they are different now and I am po'd!That person should NOT be doing these.Just looking at my breasts you can't tell anything is wrong but once I put them in a bra and feel across the top of the breasts I can feel the implants!.Has anyone had this happen or know whats happened to them?Please let me hear ...I will be worrying all weekend now.The mammagram was only my yearly exam no suspicious lumps etc.I am very hesitant to ever have another one now........but will Not go to same clinic again.Will post photos tomorow.

And Another Thing....

They almost feel like and look like from above like the HP implants have flipped over!??I guess my PS will just look at them and know...but my husband will not want to pay more to fix this...don't know if clinic will pay to fix either.They don't hurt today at least but did Tuesday day after procedure.I am so eorried now.My PS's in surgery on Fridays and not in office so I will call and make apptment for next week.Will let you know what's up....and take pics from above with bra on so maybe you can see what I am talking about.I don't think they are ruptured at all just not in place correctly now.

See Dr. on Monday

I just made apptmt with PS for Monday at 1:00.I am still worried as hell of course that this may be only fixed with another surgery we can't afford....please pray its fixable with manipulation by Dr.He's not charging for appt Monday thankfully...my husband doesn't know about them yet cause I'm dreading telling him.He will first blame me for agreeing to have mammagram then blame tech who performed it.All he will be concerned with is if he has to pay for another surgery!I can't get pics to post but you can't see changes only feel them.I will keep you all informed of the outcome.I say NO MAMMAGRAMS until a year after surgery and then if it still seems too early don't (of course if it's because of something like a suspicious lump do get it).I am so scared now.I asked receptionist if they ever had an issue like this before...she said no.Gonna be a long weekend girls!Prayyyyy Please that this is a minor thing but I guess when it's your new breasts nothing is minor only major in our minds!

Here's some pics of my broken breasts...

Pictures showing deformity at top of breasts

DR. GAVE ME SCRIPT FOR FLEXARIL???

Saw Dr at 1 today,he said he thinks it's muscle spasms!??gave script for flexeril .Took pics didn't see any changes....then Mary his patient coordinator came in,I showed yop of breasts and she felt where I can feel implants and agreed something is wrong!!Said I need Mri to determine position of implants.I told her I can feel implants under my boobs and it feels flat and I believe they are flipped over and what I feel at top of my breasts are the bottom edges of implant.She made me feel much better,said take meds for a month in mean time she will inform Dr.of what she felt and see if he agrees I need MRI.She said not to worry,I explained to her I have no funds for MRI or additional surgery...she said not to worry.I feel better after speaking with her...she's had Mammagrams and knows they are done agresssively so I feel she will convince Dr I am not imagining this...I told her I have been obsessed with them sonce January and I know how they should feel!As it is I can't wear anything too low cut or people can see this deformity...plus I have experenced bee stings and odd feelings in my breasts since mammagram.I feel like never having another one done but with breast cancer so prevalent these days a women should be checked every year...so I guess I will be changing centers to have mammograms done in the future...and will NOT be getting another whether gyno orders for yearly one for 2 or 3 yrs now!This goes against what I have always done since I was 40...but we are still paying for revision done in Jan.To have my perfect breasts deformed now 6 mo.later is not fair either when caused by ineptness of tech.Will check in later with any new updates on my situation...please if you have breast implants and are old enough to have mammograms yearly make sure somehow the tech performing it knows what they are doing!.....Until dr.aknowledges I have something wrong I can't even go to Health center where mune was done and complain because they will want a dr.'s report first before I can discuss them paying for additional surgery even.If anyone can tell me how that part is done I would appreciate it.I don't want to sue anyone only to have my breasts put back to pre-mammogram stage!!I don't like people who sue companys just to get money.Thanks in advance for any suggestions.....

Now I have rippling in tops of breasts!

I have posted about my recent mammogram ordered by my gyno causing deformities in my breasts,well after they sit and settle I have ripples at top of cleavage and on tops of curves seen at tops of my breasts!I am sooo disapointed.....and so far my PS doesn't agree with me as to what I see and feel!He said to wait a month,take flexeril (a weak muscle relaxant) and call his office then.His pt. Coordinator Mary is a wonderful lady...I spoke with her afterwards and she said she sees and believes me...she is my advocate and friend...I do not find any fault with Dr.Peterson (surgeon that performed my revision in Jan2015.)his work is beautiful...I am upset though how aggressive the tech was with my breasts knowinf I had implants placed in Jan.I feel she had never done patients who have implants .It took an hour for her to get 8 (2 more than required by radioligist)pics !Afterwards I noted alot of new pains and "bee stings" ,I waited for a week then went in to see my PS.I will update this after a month,please pray they stop having ripples etc.If anyone has ideas why they are rippling and feel like the tops of implants are not under muscle now!??Or that they have flipped over from her aggressive manipulations...Please girls be very sure you have a qualified technician if you have to have a mammagram...God Bless you all! I HAVE POSTED PHOTOS LAST WEEK.I AM TRYING TO NOT OBSESS ABOUT THEM AND LET THEM BE...I MAY POST MORE PHOTOS OF THEM LATER...

Breasts are looking better!

I just wanted to provide an update on my mammogram boobs:I am looking better,still feel rippling at tops but wondering if due to my weight loss (10 lbs.).I am feeling much better about them now....taking flexeril as directed.I will wait a complete month to give a final decision... I am happy with them either way...ripples or not at least they (ripples) aren't visible If anything they appear larger and cleavage is increased as well...I think it's partly a weight issue.But I don't want another mammogram for a long time...best wishes to all! XOXOXOXO

Feeling lucky....

Well I have not posted on hete for a while...no reason just been busy..my boobs I feel are ok now..I believe the rippling will go away if I gain my weight back (I always regain in winter) and it feels like I have no muscle now covering tops of implant at my cleavage area..but I feel ok about it...I never called PS office after a month...to look at my breasts they appear the same anyway..they just don't feel the same when I touch them myself.I am lucky they were not damaged or ruptured actually by the mammographers ineptness!I am same size ,no pains so I am happy with what I have now...they will be officially "mine" in December when we make the last payment on the bank loan we took out to pay for them!My husband said we need a new car next...hey I am good with that!I hope everyone on this site has the breasts they wanted and are happy with their results...later,xoxoxoLucy'sGrace.

I love Dr.Peterson personality and his professionalism.He never insinuated I was too old or narcissistic in my wanting to replace my implants.He's great and highly recommended for all of your cosmetic procedures!
