Inspiring I want me some boobs now too I’m a 34D and worry what they will look like a year from now now I know they is hope

Congratulations on your surgery!!! You are gonna do great!! I waited 9 months after my sleeve surgery to get implants. I was at my goal weight. I got both a breast augmentation surgery (implants) and breast lift surgery with Dr. Michael Ciaravino and he charged $10,800. I was overjoyed at how affordable he was because I had previously gotten quotes from other doctors at $21,000 and $18,000. Yikes. There's no way I could swing that.

With implants, you get your usual mammogram each year but the technician will take additional photos so they can get a better look behind your implants. People worry about rupturing an implant during a mammogram but that is rarer than rare. Here's a link I looked at:

Good luck on your new weight loss journey!!! :D :D

Thank you so much! So first, I'll tell you that I trusted my doctor's opinion and he recommended the high profile round implants. I definitely desired a natural tear drop shape and he said that with my extra skin and fat (lol) that I don't need the Gummy bear implant; my breasts will "drop and fluff" as they say and that will create the look I'm going for (and it's cheaper apparently). Second, I took the most flattering pics in those tops! LOL I play with angles and lighting and posing. Hahaha. See attached for how my tummy looks at its worst! I sucked it in on one side shot and let loose in the other. I would definitely like a TT and BBL too!! Is surgery an addiction? Eeeeek!!

Thanks for the great info. I also want a natural teardrop shape post BL/BA, so I've been focused on implants that shape. Definitely will have a more open mind and go with my surgeon recommendations (when I find one 😅)

Thanks for the tummy pics! That's a lot closer to where I'm at. There are definitely angles that are more flattering than others.

Boobs take a long time to heal...just like our stomachs. The scars are looking better and they have really dropped and fluffed. Just wanted to post an update. Another before and after. This BL/BA was like the crown on top of sleeve surgery. I highly recommend if you're considering it. I have even more confidence and I didn't think that was possible after the sleeve. Lol

You're right! LOL I can barely tell where they are in the pic! (Lighting is everything!!) I can tell which shadows are them though. Haha. But all of them healed pretty well except for one which is bumpy and a lighter color than the rest of my skin. I probably should have been better with the bio oil. Sigh.

That’s awesome!!
Mine have faded but the one where they pulled the stomach portion they took out is still hard and you can still see it.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
