Questions about breast lift and implants



Recommended Posts

I have my final appointment scheduled in a few days. I am doing a lift and implants along with my arms... my question is I’m really not sure how many cc to get right now I’m a 34B and I don’t want it to be really noticeable so I’m not sure if I do 350cc if that’s going to be super noticeable. My doctor recommended 350cc for my body type and the amount of skin I have, I’m just worried about it. It’s not like I can return them 😊

Congratulations on your upcoming surgeries. I would say follow your doctors advised and what you are comfortable with. Do you wear form fitting clothes?. Only you know your body and the comfort level you feel when you are dressed in certain outfits.

Wishing you the best!

After sleeve surgery, I thought my mom was going to have a conniption at the thought of my getting a boob job. "Oh pleeeeease don't do that! You don't want huge knockers! It'll look so horrible on you. You don't want to be a sex symbol or a porn star! What are you thinking?! You're body is perfect the way it is!!"

Well, in some ways I agreed with her. No, I don't have any desire to be a porn star. However, my breasts look deformed, so how can I get implants to have them look natural and not overdone? GREAT question. And honestly, the doctor I chose had so many good before and after results, that I trusted what he recommended. And he told me "You need between 320 and 350 ccs for your body type". Ha! There it was and I didn't really question it. (I got 320 in right and 350 in left because I had different sized boobs to start! And I was roughly a 36B before surgery.) liquid volume doesn't equate out well with cup sizes but it would roughly be a full C / D and that made me a bit nervous. HOWEVER. I continued to read reviews online about how many women regret not going bigger. So I thought, you know, I will take his recommendation and I know it will be great. And you know what? I love them. Not too big and not too small. I think they're literally perfect for me.

Now here's the OTHER thing I've noticed now that I actually HAVE them. I can make them look super small or I can make them look HUGE. It's all on what bra you wear and what outfit/shirt you have on. If you want to look modest for work or what have you, throw on a spandex bralette that provides lift but keeps them tucked in. If you want to look big and sexy? Throw on a push up bra and wear a LOW cut t-shirt. It's crazy but my friends told me they never would have noticed my boobs unless I told them about the surgery.

Here's a few pics so you get the idea of how different they can look depending on how you're manipulating the girls. LOL These pics are ALL post op BL/BA.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
