24 Years Old, No Kids 700cc Silicone High Profile Unders - Virginia Beach, VA
I am scheduled for breast augmentation surgery...
Tomorrow is the Big Day!!!
Dr. Manolo was very helpful and confident so far for my consultation and pre op visits. I am nervous because my only experience with surgery was my wisdom teeth, but I'm not "scared" I suppose because this is something I have pretty much always wanted!!!
I want to go big with 700cc despite my frame and height (5'5) because I think it will fit my over the top personality. I'm a little backward and shy, but my hobbies are kind of quirky and I'm very drawn to the ideal of large breasts, big eyes "cartoon" makeup. One of my hobbies is making costumes for comic and anime conventions and I think it will be easier to fit the image of many characters with dramatically large breasts.
However, I am not getting this augmentation to "be" someone else. I truly feel that this surgery will give me a little boost of fulfillment to become beautiful to myself.
Although I've gained maybe 10 lbs over the winter, I am just at my normal weight now from high school or so. (I'm 24 now.) A few years ago, I weighed close to 180 lbs and I was very unhappy. Over a couple of years as well as treatment for depression/anxiety I was able to get back to a normal weight for myself. I feel way more confident about my body...just not my natural breasts. So with this surgery I think I will be feeling awesome once I heal up.
I do however have a very patient and open mind about what my result will be. I might be a bit bummed if they can't be as large as I hoped..but I trust in my surgeon if he thinks the larger end of the spectrum I can get would not be safe. I'd rather be healthy above all else. If I can get the 700s and they look bigger than I imagined (or if smaller implants look big enough) I will be extremely pleased though. I'm trying not to make my expectations unreal because I don't want to feel bummed by the result..but I'm always like this, and most of the time my wariness leads to pleasant surprises honestly.
Despite being nervous I'm ready for tomorrow for sure :)

Day 1 Post Op Update
1 week Update; weight gain very quickly..not just from the implants :(
I haven't had any issues with the stitches being pulled loose or any tearing or bleeding at all..I just can tell when it is stretching and it is unpleasant. They're still really tight, but I noticed I have at least a little more range of motion and I can move around more without pain.
I measured myself at a 30 band and 37 inch bust. So it would convert to somewhere in the DDD or F cup range if I'm not mistaken? I used some conversion tool online and it told me 34F. I think DDD and F may be the same cup size according to that site though.
Also, it included my swelling. So we will see what happens. Before the surgery I was a 32A or B.
I am weighing in at 140 pounds now. That's 10 pounds since before my operation.. the implants themselves weigh something like less than 5 pounds total so I hope I can lose it. Not being able to be as active and being bed ridden during recovery (basically) made me pack on some pounds I think.
I have had days where I have felt very bloated looking and I feel like with large implants it is important to keep my weight down for me to make them look as large as possible. I noticed in gaining weight the implants will always make me appear larger in general as a person if my clothes are baggy :/
One perk small boobs had was I could look slender for a larger window of weight. I hope to get down to my weight of 120 from last summer. With these implants, they maybe add 5 pounds to that even though they feel heavier.
Injury caused hemotoma that was corrected
After the hemotoma was removed, my right breast went back to the state it was before as far as dropping and softening up. It has made slightly more progress dropping than my left breast.
My left breast was sitting high for a while but it has slowly started to make progress dropping and softening. I can still see a bit if uneven level between them, but as long as the left makes progress it is likely doing well. Many women do not have both breasts settle at the same exact rate.
Today I had a post op appt and I was given the ok to start massages and I am healing well. Feeling good now!
10 Week Update
I went to my consultation last week with Dr. Mancoll. The visit was very informative and he used digital imaging to give me a realistic idea of what different sized implants would look like on my actual body. I was amazed at how realistic the computer generated version of my body looked...the implant size I was hoping for actually looks great on me and Dr. Mancoll said I would be a good candidate for the size I wished for. He was very confident and answered all my questions. My surgery is scheduled for next month and I am very excited to finally have the breasts I always dreamed of
