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.

My weight finally stabilized around 145 (original goal weight), so I went forward with surgery for a breast lift with implants (Dr. Ciaravino in Houston is amazing). I lost 72 lbs total after the sleeve but added approximately 1.5 lbs of implants (Mentor MemoryGel Smooth Round High Profile 350cc). I cry when I see these photos side by side. I got sleeved on 2/28/2018 and got these boobs 9 months later on 11/30/2018. What a year.

Hey I know this post is old. I live just south of Houston. I heard ciaravino is really good before I even saw your post. Unfortunately when I called for a consult he is now the director and doesn’t do surgery anymore. He has a new surgeon working under him. Soooo I’m not super comfortable with that. Bummer bc I herd so many great things. Your pics look Great!!

I know this is an old posting but it’s the most recent on the subject. I haven’t seen much activity on the forums lately. I’ve actually scheduled plastics for June that includes belt Lipectomy / butterfly lift, thigh lift and ... why I’m on this topic, augmentation.

im torn in some ways and it’s hard to ask without a long story. Short version. Or not so short ... I’ve battled my weight forever. I’ve never been the weight I’m at today as long as I can remember, heck I could have been 9 years old for all I know. My chest size was problematic. I’d swear they grew overnight at a young age and were massive dense breast tissue that sagged terribly and were painful. (I was also bullied)

When I was finally old enough to seek out reduction surgery my weight had skyrocketed due to metabolic disorders. I went from what the school called mildly obese 135lbs to 180lbs practically overnight. It was a very stressful time. I’m grateful for the clinic I went to and the surgeon that fought for me who knew losing weight wouldn’t fix the problem.

I guess When I first lost weight I only managed to maintain 134lbs I would say my bra size was 30H/30FF UK ? I never reached goal for my height until now. Until I finally had the tool of gastric bypass surgery. I’d say I’m 28D at best. (I haven’t bought new bras I’m just wearing cheap sports bras) But my right side has a kind of um ... dent In it. Although I don’t need a lift the skin is deflated. I was never full on top so now it’s rather bony. (It was even at my heaviest now it’s more noticeable)

it’s hard to talk about. I’m not the most feminine person. I’ve always been rather neither here nor there. I only recently bought a few old navy Jersey swing dresses. Mostly for comfort during recovery. Part of me can do without boobs and bras and all that. The other is like wow I could Finally fill out a nice bra without having a ski slope or having to wear a moulded cup bra ... Talk about split personality.

ive planned on it, it’s silicon implant up to 575cc. I just haven’t thought about it. I have no idea what size I’d go. ive got my flight booked and I’m trying to prepare yet at the same time I haven’t had the head space to think about it. The other two procedures are priority this is the I’m there why not part.

I don’t know, the women here are beautiful and have reason to want to have the surgery to feel good. And have great results. But I’m not and im also alone. I question am I even worth it. I am doing this because I fought like hell to lose 105lbs and want the ugly wrinkled excess skin gone. But I guess I’m dealing with issues I can’t verbalize or process. Or talk through.

I hesitate to post. I’m juggling some things that have been delayed due to Covid. While planning this. I did write a post about it. I didn’t go into detail about this aspect. One part of these forums that bothers me is if I am uncomfortable about my post I can’t remove it. Hopefully I haven’t just said a lot of nonsense ...
