BoobiesPlease11 is on a distinguished road


I recently just had my BA about 6 weeks ago and I'm really not happy with the size. I'm 5'5 112lbs. My PS orgianlly recomended me to go between 400-425cc for the big c/ small d look. Nevertheless, because I was greedy, I ended up with 450cc in one breast and 475cc in the other. The breast that received the 450cc was about small 32B; whereas, the one that recieved the 475cc was a little bit smaller. I'm really hoping to still acheive that big c/ small d look so I'm thinking about either downsizing by 50cc, 75cc or even more if necessary, this time I'd leave it up to my PS. However, which one do you think would be best? My PS said with the CCs I have now I'll still end up a big c/small d, but i'm extremely skeptical. Is there any truth to this?

Thanks in advance!

Dr. Pelletiere will become famous soon enough
You are still very early in the healing process. I have found that the HP implants take a little longer to settle than the moderate plus devices. Generally I tell my patients that the three month mark is really when you should have the final size and shape. Until that point, things can still change. I would just be patient and massage your breasts a few times a day. With a 32 band size, it is hard to say where you may end up by downsizing 50-75cc, but I think that would probably be appropriate to get you where you want to go if you still feel that you are too large at the three month mark. I hope this helps.
