Small frame girls with larger implants

I am happy with the look of my BA but wish I could have gone larger. Before we went into surgery he asked me if he could go larger would I be comfortable with a more fake look. I told him that was fine and I would prefer to go larger. After surgery he said he put the largest implants he could in due to my chest size and exsisting breast tissue. I trust and know he did the right thing for my frame but how do these other smaller framed girls get large implants? For all you smaller framed girls with larger implants... Were you able to do it in one surgery? Did you do it in one and have complications after? Im interested and knowing your stories. My hope is after I have babies, I might be able to go a little larger.

My dr knew I would need at least a 600 cc implant because I had a gap that needed to be filled. We decided on 650 cc and he had a hell of a time fitting them in there. It took him 2 hours instead of one to squeeze them in there.

It was my first BA, and so far no complications

I got the largest my dr could squeeze in as well ( 450cc) I did get stretch marks around both nipples like a childs drawing of the sun, so I am sure any bigger and I would have been unhappy with how my skin would have reacted.

In my case:

I got 580cc's HP on top of my deflated 32C's, taking me to a 32H. My rib cage is 27", I'm 5'4, 110 lbs pre-surgery.

I had natural 32DD's, had & breastfed 3 children before surgery, so my boobs had already stretched my skin to a 32F while nursing.

I got Mentor, saline, HP's, which allowed me to fit the maximum amount of volume while staying at my BWD of 12.9 (these particular implants had the most projection/volume to width ratio of any implant.)

I maxed out at 450, everyone was a bit surprised he even was able to fit those in. I have tight skin, small frame and not much natural tissue. So far they look wonderful, no noticeable stretch marks, but we did notice my nipples are larger but they don't have that stretched look.

The biggest my PS would go is 350cc unless I signed a waiver. I'm only a few days out but am more than happy.

my PS said the largest i could go is 460cc. so thats what i went with. he said if i wanted to go larger that i would have to do it in another surgery because any bigger than 460 is gonna leave me with stretch marks and other possible complications. im glad he explained this to me. at the time i was disappointed because i wanted to go bigger..but i love the size i am now

Thanks to all the ladies that chimed in here...I'm small framed too and have my pre-op Tuesday. Looking forward to what the doc says. In my initial consultation, he said there was NO WAY he could go above 400 with me.

I had my first set of saline 325 unders at 18. After two kids I was a little saggy and upgraded a couple months ago to 600/650 silicone unders. I didn't think my skin would stretch so badly after all the extra skin I had but the 600/650 was really stretching it. Seems its easy to go gradual to bigger because I couldn't have imagined getting this size in my first BA.

I didn't get stretch marks either time and surprised because my skin was tight! I don't see how woman can get very large ones first time without some skin damage but I'm sure some do without a problem.

I am petite and i went with 400 cc's but he could have fit more if i wanted. I just didnt want to be to big. Right now i'm measuring 32DDD. Having two kiddos helped me with the being able to go bigger. I'm still early but no problems so far. Ive read girls my size that have been only able to fit 300 and it just amazes me i had all that extra skin to fit way bigger implants.

It all depends on the skin.The same with pregnancy.
I got to full term 2 times but never had a single stretch mark,and other women have tons....really depends on the person that's all.

Depends on what you mean by small framed. I am 5'2" and 127ish, petite but got a bit curvier after my second baby. I think my BWD is around 13 but it wasn't confirmed for me, I just heard him say it while measuring. He says the biggest he could do is 500/550, take me to a full D or so. I have had two kids and have some volume to fill up, so I am sure that make a difference. Before kids I might have taken less to fill.

This is my opinion:

It obviously has a LOT to do with your body, your skin and of course the tissue you already have.. But honestly, it also has a TON to do with the surgeon..
Some surgeons specialize in LARGE IMPLANTS. Two of those surgeons being Dr. Revis & Dr. Pousti..

My very first consult I went to the doctor told me I absolutely maxed out at 375 cc's and that alone was pushing it do to my small size. I was devastated, to say the least.
After many consults and much time I found a doctor who was able to give me what I wanted, a nice LARGE fake look with my very first surgery. Dr. Revis, my boobie HERO!

I got 800cc's on my FIRST SURGERY! Safely with so far zero complications and pure happiness.. Don't settle for less girl! If that doctor can't give you what you want do a few more consults, it really cant hurt! All I know is that if I would have settled with my first doctor I would be devastated..

Best of luck! xo

I have a small frame and 11.5 bwd., I am fairly tall though.
I hope my ps can fit the 425hp's into me. I'm going to ask him if he thinks he can and pre-op. I suppose I will just have to be happy with what he can fit, otherwise.

The biggest I could go was 500cc (mod+).

I chose 475cc.

After surgery, the PS said I was lucky because I almost received 450cc instead.

I have little body fat and not much breast tissue (BFed for total of 2 years).

I am on the petite side I guess, stats in my siggy, I got 425 filled to 455HP's my ps wanted to go with 500's I was scared so said no. I nursed 2 babies but had little to no tissue, no sag either, when i nursed I was a 32D, pre-op 32A-, lol.

Don't error on the small side, IMO you get used to them and think they are small pretty fast. Wish I had gone with the 500's!

A lot of it has to do with the amount of starting tissue you have. The less tissue, the smaller you can go at first (normally). If you go larger you risk stretch marks and other complications.

By gradually upping the size it allows the "elasticity(sp?)" of the skin to adjust to the implant and then you can move up.

I would say (if you want the larger faker look), go for as much as you can get in there safely, then move up later. Get more than one doctor to look at it as well. It seems like a lot of doctors I have spoken with have spoken more from the "what they're comfortable with" angle instead of what's possible (and safe) in balance with my wants.

Hope that makes sense lol?
