Feeling so small after 500cc's!

I am 3 weeks post op 9/13/10 and can't believe how small I am. I started out a 34A-AA deflated and not filling up the cups, and got 500cc HP silicone unders. From the look of the sizers I tried on I thought I would be huge! I can't believe 500cc's are actually in me! I look so small it just amazes me. I hear of other ladies getting less cc's and getting so much bigger. I feel like my left has already dropped, but my right hasn't yet so I am lopsided too. I just feel like an idiot for spending this much money and not getting the look I wanted. I should have gotten at least 100-150 more cc's for sure. At this point I don't think I will get much bigger from the D&F and my doctor says they don't change that much from here out anyway. I guess he's not a big believer in D&Fing. Oh well, hope this helps someone else, don't go by the look of the sizers, they look bigger than you will be. Go bigger! I wish I could afford to upsize, but unfortunately I can't.

Ive never had a PS offer me sizers! I went to 3 consults back in 2001 when i first had mine done. It was only after surgery that i read on some websites about PS's giving patients sizers.
I guess every doc has their own method.
Im sorry u feel they are too small but your still pretty early post op and they really do change alot in the first 8 months.

Girl 500 is a big implant you can always dress them up or hide them those are a perfect size and you can wear bra's from just about anywhere....You don't realize it but those are the perfect size...I had 500's and they were good but I had a lot of loose skin that I needed filled out that's why I went up. Now I have to buy bra's online or spend $$ and higher end stores...had I known that I would have left the 500's...I bet they look Awesome on you....

sorry to hear you are not happy with your results! what cup size are you measuring now! my friends just got her breast augmentation about 3 months ago and she was so mad at herself that she didn't go bigger. but they changed so much in 3 months that now she loves them and is glad she didn't go any bigger! i hope this will be the case for you as well!

i am going with 500s as well but i'm in the different boat. i'm hoping that wont be too big! i dont want to look fake or unnatural.

Sorry you didnít get what you were expecting. But I am a believer in D&F.. So I would try not to stress yourself out too much, its only been four weeks. I have been told the final results are anywhere from 6-12 months. Hoping for the best for you!

OP, I know what you mean. I swear I see some others' pics and their 300's and 400's look HUGE! And I swear my 533's look small. (Must be a Corona thing, LOL!)

I wonder if for me it is my weight. I'm at 156 now, I still have 20lbs to lose, and some of the other girls in 500 series who look way huger than me are much thinner (up to 30lbs thinner). So I'm holding out hope for when I finish dropping all this weight that my boobs will look bigger (and also hoping my gap widens a little).

Thanks for all the replies, I really appreciate it. I am 5'2" and weigh 110 lbs. So I thought 500's would look huge, which is what I wanted. The sizers looked really big. I don't know why my dr. And his staff said I am pretty much done and won't get any bigger. I want to D&F like I hear about on this website. I currently measure a 34DD sized last week at Nordstrom, but I don't look that big. I think I look like about a C cup. If I could do over I would definitely go do 600 or 650cc's. Please tell me I will indeed D&D! I'm 3 weeks and 1 day post op. Thanks again ladies and I wish I would have found this site before surgery.

I know how you feel and but im pretty sure you will learn to love them. Im 8 weeks now and I just bought my first bra from VS not padded btw and WOW they look so different in a bra then they did in a sports bra. For some reason they look HUGE in a regular bra. I cant spend another 7k so im gonna have to learn to live with them and learn to love them and that I DO I think 500 are perfect especially for your frame. Im pretty sure you will love them once you are done with your healing process. My advice go by a sexy bra and I truly think this will make you see them in a positive light. Sadly BA is not love at first sight lol but u will learn to love them I wish you nothing but the best.

I was reading that textured implants don't really D&F. That is what I have so I am guessing I won't D&F like everyone else with smooth implants. Now I'm really bummed!

A 34dd is a lovely size... When you are an A/B cup a DD sounds HUGE, but when you are a DD it doesn't seem so big, at least that is how I feel about my boobs. I feel like a big c, and want bigger, but my hubby says they ARE big and that I just got used to them so they don't seem big anymore.

Strangely though, in pictures it seems that either my boobs look like the size they were before or they look hugeee.

Just hang in there... Whether or not your boobs drop and fluff, they will get softer, and look better as time continues.

I probably won't get a redo for a long time, so right now I'm looking at the cups as half full! LOL

You have to remember too that everyone's different. Initial breast size makes a difference. Ribcage/bra size makes a difference. Body fat, height, implant type (high-profile, mod+, etc), and where they're implanted (sub-glandular, sub-muscular, etc.), and even the type of filler makes a difference!

I'm sorry to hear you aren't happy with your size Try to keep your hopes and spirit up. I'm about your stats and I would have thought with 500 cc's you would be VERY big!! Now I'm wondering ... I'm hoping for you that it's like the girls on here say - give it time and they will be perfect! Take care and please keep us posted. Try to think happy thoughts

You are all so wonderful for your replies. I will try to be hopeful, but I just feel like I blew it. I could have picked a larger size and I thought 500 would be huge. Just wish I could go back 3 weeks and have a do over - 650 it would be! I will try to keep my hopes up for some D &F to happen. Thanks again!

I have 500cc and I love the way they fit my body naked. I do admit that under clothes they look small, but im ok with that. I think its the perfect size because you can hide them when you need to (work wise) and you can enhance the beautiful girls with the right tops and dresses to show off (in my case 9 grand) your DDs! give it a while, Im only about 11 days post op and I already love them. hope you feel better about your size!

i agree with the other ladies. youre tiny and 500 is a big implant! from your avatar they look AWESOME and its ONLY week 3. which means you're going to change alot in the coming weeks. be patient and try to look at the positive. that always helps me!!

525 too small?

Hi I am in the same boat I am 5 weeks post op with 525cc hp but I went to VS and was only measured at a 36C. I started as an A or deflated B. I am hoping that D&F will make the difference. I told my PS that I wanted to be a D-DD. How long does it take to start D&F I am ready..
