No, it's not even close to staying, even if I hunch over. Thanks for the tip! I have my last consult next week, so I'll be interested in what this doctor says...

I relate to the ladies here that needed a lift, because in hindsight, I really did. But I looked at your pics, and I am no plastic surgeon, but you have nice boobs!!!! I got a second opinion about my lift, but maybe you should get a 3rd??

My mom always told me the pencil teset was to see if you needed to wear a bra!!! Hehe.

Kitkat, you are too nice!!! Thank you for the compliment!

I have had several second opinions (I'm off to my 5th next week!) and the problem is that they are mixed so far. The local doctors said I didn't need a lift, while the Drs in Scottsdale both recommended a full lift. I'm thinking the doctors in Scottsdale probably do more of the fake look (more of a demand for it there), but unfortunately that IS the look I want. I guess I'll see what this last doctor says and go from there...

Thanks for the advice and will keep you posted!

I was just looking at your pics & you look great. I was saggy. I think from here its a personal preference becuase I am getting a redo & going larger but I like boobs that are really high up so I will be getting mine higher up.

I know how you are feeling. I was devastated when I heard I needed a lift and at first they said I would need a full lift (2 surgeons) then I talked to them about a benelli lift and they both said I was borderline. I chose to go with only the benelli lift and a little smaller then my PS wanted and now I have puckering and am not entirely happy with my results. I like where they sit but am bummed about the puckering. I see him the end of this month and I am going to ask him if he can pump me up a little to take away the puckering.

Good luck!
