I'm having a breast lift with implants. When choosing my implant size, do I select the cc plus the breast size I already have now?
Breast Lift - 4 days ago1 answer
I was overweight and lost 120 pounds. I was a 42DDD, now I'm like a 36C. I need help in choosing a size. I want a full D. I plan to have a breast lift with implants. When choosing my implant size, do I select the cc plus the breast size I already have now?

I'm concerned with how my implants are placed, being flat and wide.
Breast Implant Revision - 2 weeks ago1 answer
I'm unhappy with the projection. I'm 11 weeks PO from a saline to silicone revision. I wanted cleavage, so my surgeon said a wide implant could achieve that. I was happy to be going from 375cc to 405cc. I have Mentor classic moderate profile. They have a width of 14 but projection of 3.6. My old salines were 11.4 width and 4.4 projection. I'm beginning to understand why I'm experiencing knuckles and folds. Do you think if I switch to mod + I could fit 500cc?

One of my breasts looks smaller than the other after breast augmentation. How would you handle this?
Breast Augmentation - 2 weeks ago2 answers
I’m currently 3 months post-op. I never was asked to try on implants beforehand. My surgeon asked what size I wanted to be, and I said DD. After surgery, I was told a 295 cc implant was used and a 450 cc implant was used. That sounded quite odd to me as I didn’t think I had that much asymmetry before surgery. Now, I have lopsided breasts. The 295 cc implant looks much smaller than the breast with the 450 cc implant. If I was your patient, how would you handle this? What would you do?

What risks do I face if my doctor inserts an implant wider than my BWD?
Breast Augmentation - 3 weeks ago1 answer
I'm after a modest increase. My doctor has advised an implant that is 3mm wider then my BWD (340cc). I requested for the most minimal amount of side boob; however, I'm scared it will be too much and edge into my armpit region. When I tried on the sizer, I really liked the proportion when wearing it and it was a 330 cc sizer. I'm scared going beyond BWD will cause rippling or future problems down the road. Can this be clarified? I'm currently 5ft 4, small 10b and 57kg.

I'm scheduled for a BA in 1 month but need serious help with implant size. My PS wants a more conservative, smaller implant—285cc HPX.
Breast Augmentation - 3 weeks ago2 answers
I am 34, no children, 5’8” 120lbs, BMD ranges are:R 11.1-12.0 and L 11.1 to 11.8. (This depends on menstrual cycle and when it's measured.) He originally planned to do HP 300cc Mentor Gel, then changed to the newer implant Mentor HP Xtra 285cc. I am concerned the implant will be smaller than I want. I don’t want a big, fake look but a nice, full, bustier appearance with some upper pole fullness and cleavage. The assistant stated anything higher would look like torpedoes on me. please help.

I am 3 weeks post-op. I had 550cc hp Mentor smooth round silicone under the muscle. Will these even out? Is the shape still going to change a lot?
Breast Augmentation - 3 weeks ago1 answer
I originally started out at a 34B. I am 5’7 and now 123lbs. My right breast has seemed to drop quite a bit and filled out but it's holding a more oblong shape which is freaking me out. My left breast is still high and looks a lot smaller than my right, but nice and round. The asymmetry is very noticeable and I’m worried, but my surgeon told me to massage the left one and wear an underwire bra to support the other one.

What can be done to fix this revision surgery?
Breast Implant Revision - 1 month ago4 answers
I had revision surgery May 2017, a lift with 280cc low profile Sientra gel. My implants are out of pocket, fall under arms and below incision. They lay flat on my chest. My plastic surgeon says there is nothing wrong and refuses to fix it. I’m unhappy and can’t afford a total redo after spending $12,000 the first time. Is there a way to at least tighten and fix the pockets?

I’m one week post-op today and was wanting a bit more of the “fake” look with more round and upper cleavage.
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago2 answers
I’m 5’7 and was 130 lbs. at the time of surgery. I’ve dropped 7lbs in recovery. My surgeon opted for 550cc’s HP round silicone under the muscle. I got my bandages off yesterday and I absolutely love them but I don’t feel like I have that circular upper cleavage I was hoping for. Could this just be due to swelling?

Both of my incisions (under the breast) are painful 3 days post op. Is this normal?
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago2 answers
When I am laying down or sitting up the pain is minimal or none. However, when I stand up and the breast has a chance to move the incisions burn very badly. It brings me to tears. Walking hurts quite a bit. They don’t look infected and aren’t red or hot. No oozing or anything. I wonder if it’s the bra pressing on it and making it hurt. I'm just wondering if this seems normal. I plan to call my PS Monday if it’s still bad.

Breast Implant Replacement - 1 month ago1 answer
I'm 4 weeks post-op. They're low with nothing left to drop and are flat on top with loose skin. I'm 40 years old, weigh 125 lbs, 5 foot seven. I had 325 cc that were in for 17 years. I had 2 children in that time and breast-fed. Both my nipples were still pretty normal, level and the doctor said I didn't need a lift. I was wearing a 34C bra and flatter on the top. In the middle and they seem to be all on the side and spread apart. I am only wearing my c bras & swimsuits.

Are these implants too small for my frame, height and goals? Is bigger possible?
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago2 answers
I’m 5'8", 140 lbs, BWD 13, pre 170cc 34a, waist 27", hips 38". I Wanted full C cup. I showed my doctor pictures. He pushed for a large B cup b/c he thought it would look better, not b/c of medical issues. We agreed 350cc sizers looked large but didn’t account for under muscle loss of shape. I requested 300-320. I preferred the 320. He put 285 and 300 due to asymmetry. I'm 2 weeks post op and disappointed—lack of fullness and size. One breast looks flat and small—is it due to muscle tightness?

How do I handle not being happy with the outcome with my surgeon?
Breast Enhancement - 1 month ago6 answers
I am four weeks post op and see my surgeon for my follow up tomorrow. My breasts look 100% better! But they look good, not great. They are not what I expected and not what I was made to think they would be. I don’t want to upset the surgeon but to go through all of this and pay this much money and not be happy... I started my journey with VSG. After losing the weight my breasts had deflated! So I had a reduction, lift and implants. We kept going over the “fullness at the top” and it’s not there.

I had a breast lift with implants 10 days ago. When the tape was removed I was left with a bubble between my breasts. What can I do?
Breast Lift - 2 months ago1 answer
It's like a small, quarter-sized puffy Lump. My plastic surgeon says it is not fluid filled, couldn’t explain it but wants to wait for two months for them to settle. I am very sad. They have a hard tube inside and it’s like it wasn’t sewn down right. I saved $10K to get these and I’m ashamed.
