Will they look more 'REAL' and soften up?

Happy New Year to everyone! I am not sure if this topic has been covered before so I thought I would put it out there...

It has been almost six weeks since my BA and I am still trying to get acclimated to my new size. I have to say that I am generally happy with the appearance of my results, especially in clothing. I've got the look I wanted from the start and now I don't need to wear padded bras anymore. However, I still have two issues. The first is that when I look at them without clothing they still have a very 'fake' appearance to them. I know many of you like that look, but I actually prefer a more 'real' look like what I had before. The second issue is that they are still very hard. I am having a difficult time dealing with the hardness because my previous 700ccs were very soft and looked and appeared more 'real'. I should say that I am massaging them every single day, multiple times a day.

My questions to any of you who have had saline overfills and were experiencing one or both of the issues I stated above are...

1) Will my overfilled 800cc implants eventually change over time such that I will get the 'real' look I am seeking. If so, how long did it take?

2) Will they soften up over time? If so, how much will they soften and how long does this usually take?

I look forward to any perspectives on these questions.

And YES, I will update my holiday avatar soon

I took a look at your profile and saw that this is your third BA.

"1st Rev 500cc, 2nd Rev 700cc, 3rd Rev 1200cc"

I'm assuming that your first and second BA were also saline. It's hard to determine why your 700cc were as soft as you said because I don't know what size the shell was and how much they were overfilled. However, I can tell you now that your implants now (800cc overfilled to 1200cc) will probably not be as soft or as real looking as your previous implants. The more you overfill an implant, the less soft they will be.

Your boobs will soften up because the right now your chest is still pretty tight. They haven't dropped all the way I don't know how long this takes since it varies.

If you wanted the real look, I wouldn't have gone with saline nor overfilling them to 1200cc. I know that the FDA still hasn't approved silicone over 800cc but that's something that you had to keep in mind.

Hi Socaldd

I would worry at this stage. My girl friend who has 1000cc filled to 1300cc says hers took months to drop, fluff and soften up. 5 weeks is not long enough.

Having said that I looked at your photos again and frankly I think your breasts are amoungst the best I have ever seen.

Please not stress... they are going to be great.

I have no experience of salines, but it took my silicones a while to soften up and feel and look natural.

Hopefully some saline girls with similar stats will chime in here to give you their first hand experience.

You are still so early. It takes several months to really soften up. I've done this 3x and after the 6 monthish I start really noticing how squishy they are. It may be before this time, but I don't really touch them much to tell.

I was worried this time around because I overfilled mine, just 160 extra and thought they would be extremely firm...NOPE! They are just as soft as my other 2 sets. Just give it time.

I have to agree and admit that if my 1400 gels look as good as your 1200's i would be chuffed to bits!! without sounding like a perv i always look at your seasonal pic ;o) and think 'omg i hope mine look like that'....Ive seen so many piccies and your avatar is stunning for such a fresh boobie job. I dont have any personal experience but anything that size HAS to eventually drop and relax a bit...when im experiencing what your going through in a few months you'll be home with your nicely squishy boobs and i'll be stressing instead

Just wanted to chime in and agree with the other ladies and say that they look great on you. Mine took a lot longer than 5 weeks to settle and soften up completely.
