Good luck, Im hoping that after lapband surgery I eventually end up with a pair of small C's. It has been heJJ living with these heavy old DD's. Cute little bras and tank tops here I come.

I had a lift prior to the band. The Doctor took me from a DD to a B, I was so depressed. I thought I was just getting them picked back up. I went back about 6mo. after getting banded and got implants to fill them out. She took me back to a D/DD. I do wish I had waited until after the weightloss because they looked fine with some weight on me but now that I'm almost at goal weight they look HUGH. But on the bright side they are the only thing I really like when I'm naked. They look better now then they did in my 20's, Just HUGH. Although I wish I had waited I am glad I had them done because I really have very little breast tissue of my own left and don't even want to think about what they would look like now. My friend had RYN and lost a ton of weight and hers are just scarey!!! I'm so excited she is getting hers fixed next month, I know she will feel a lot better about herself.

I'm already researching plastic surgeons for all the work I am likely to need when I hit goal. Boobs top the list---they needed to be put back where they belong even before I started losing--big breasts + pregnancies + nursing + weight gain & loss = dire need of attention!

On general principle, I don't like fake boobs. But I think I won't have much left after I lose my weight. I was a B when I was thin, and now at a D and after pregnancy (where I couldn't stand to wear a bra), they're very droopy. I guess I could consider it putting things back to normal, rather than an augmentation. I'll just have to see where I am after the weight loss and after my skin bounces back as much as it's going to. Not looking forward to another surgery, though I think I might need it.

Even when I was small I had DD boobs and not small DD's Large DD's almost popping out of my bra. My breasts are probably the only thing I like about my body now. Ive gone through the weight gain and loss all my life and it never really affected my chest area at all. I didnt breast feed my son because I was Iron deficent anemic and I was on pain medication because he ripped in 3 spots. So the dr recommended that I didnt breast feed. Plus I also heard that it is terrible for your chest it actually causes them to sag and I love mine. What I am concerned about is my lower abdomen and my tattoos when I need a tummy tuck.:thumbup:

I plan to have plastic surgery about 6 months after reaching my goal (not sure exactly what that is yet). My boobs are surely sagging with the weight loss. I will also need a Tummy Tuck. Plastic surgery both excites and terrifies me. My sister had it all done, and I saw her recovery. It was scary how out of it she was for the first few days. She says she'd do it again in a heartbeat. Being under anesthisia for that long is very scary as well. Deffinately not a decision to take lightly.

I am getting them!!!! I sold my car so I would have money to get plastic surgery after my weight loss... I have lost 74 lbs so far and my boobs are really bad... I am going to get everything put back in place afterwards but my boobs will be one of the first things I get!!!!

We remortgaged our house to have some home renovations done and we were going to redo the bathroom but I have decided a new paint job and towels will do the trick in there and that extra money is going for a boob job when the time is right. I was a D since I was 18 and then the last 10 years when I got really heavy was a DD - large DD - popping out my bra. Gaining and losing weight excessively the past ten years has caused one breast to be much larger than the other and after four children and the weight gain and loss they are SAGGING! Okay with a good bra on but not so attractive without. No cute tank tops or bathing suits, etc. I'm not too thrilled about surgery or recovery because I heard it's horrendous but I need things augmented and put back where they need to be!!!

I don't know what I will need done after I lose the weight. But I will definitely get it done. At 53# lost, my breasts are already not like they were. Also I had very large thighs. That's where much of my remaining weight to lose is. I'm halfway there :-)

When I lose this last 53#, I thinking both places are going to need repair.

It is all worth it. I think losing this 106# will add 20 quality years to my life.

Good Journey

I'm definitely in line for a boob fix and Tummy Tuck down the road. Weighing 280 lbs and nursing three children for a year each and then losing weight does not make for a pretty picture, to say the very least. I would love to skip the implants but I hear that that mostly doesn't work.

Anyone know how long it takes to be as good as new after the surgery? How long does it take once you reach goal for things to shift to their final destinations? This is a long road. Sigh.

I would love to get a boob lift. By the time I reach goal, my boobs will be reaching the floor! :redface:

I'm concerned about going under the knife again, though. It's no picnic, and the recovery time is annoying. We shall see...

I have my date May 18 for the lift and June 8th for the silicone implants( silicone is as safe as saline)the skin on my brest is so thin that with the saline the ripples would be visiable and silicone does not ripple plus it is a more natural look ( I'm almost 50 ) and natural is what I want. I'm not wanting to look like a 25 years old just want the old girls to look like they are alive and well not sleeping on the job. hahaha!! I will try and keep you all posted and I will take pictures (clothed ofcourse ) wish me luck...

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
