I started with a deflated A cup. I have two children...I had gained a lot of
weight both times (60+lbs...opps)...and then lost it all twice. Needless to say,
my boobs were bouncing back and forth between D and A sizes for two years. I
started wanting a B cup...but only because I was afraid of what my family might
think. I found a super fantastic female Plastic Surgeon in Princeton New Jersey
and went for two pre-op consults. I started by trying on 265cc sizers...and
decided on 380cc high profile saline implants before I left. I am 5'6" tall and
I carry a
lot of muscle because I lift weights a lot. I have am quite thin and my breast
width dimension was almost 11.5 cm, which seems to be on the small side. We
decided on high profile implants because they would look more feminine,
especially with a significant amount of upper body muscle.
I wanted over the
muscle placement for two reasons:
I like the fake boob look
I have a
lot of chest muscle for a female, and would probably have problems with them
Anyway...by the time I left, and in the days after, I started thinking...I would
kind of like to have C or D cups. After all, it's my body...and that is what I
really wanted when I didn't think about other people's opinions. I called my
plastic surgeon and told her this, and we decided that result could be achieved
with the same implant size filled to 450cc.
The day of surgery I was pretty calm, until my anesthesiologist told me five
minutes before surgery that he would not be willing to sedate me only, and that
I had to go completely under with the anesthesia. I have a heart condition, so
this made me very upset as I was so afraid of not waking up and seeing my babies
again. However, I knew I would regret chickening out...and the money had been
paid, so I walked down the hall to the surgery room.
When I awoke, I could not lift my head because I was so out of it. I was hugely
relieved and kept asking my hubby “Do I have Boobs?” He was like- "yea, you got
some boobs babe!” I was so glad it was over, and it really didn’t hurt that
much, as I was back on the treadmill walking in a week and a half. I started
light lifting and jogging at two weeks post op with my Plastic Surgeon’s
permission of course. My left one hurt more than the right when I jogged...in
fact the right one felt like there was no implant at all. The left just recently
stopped bothering me when I do my cardio. It is so great to see my boobs
bouncing when I run!
only been about five weeks since my breast augmentation, but I can tell that the
swelling has subsided. My boobs are so much more bouncy and soft now. I
bought two Victoria Secret bras - both were in the size 34DD. I am trying to do
a figure competition this spring, so I imagine that I will drop in band size to
at least a 32...which is what I was wearing pre breast augmentation.
I am very happy with the results. I experience the waves of “Boobie Greed” and
think I could definitely go to a larger size – possibly 650ccs. But, I think I
will enjoy these for now and switch down the road sometime - if I get the urge
in five years or so to do this again. But for now, I am so happy and thrilled
with my results.
