Breast Augmentation Questions

Will they get any bigger?
Breast Augmentation -2 answers
Hi. I had breast augmentation 3 weeks ago. I had 380CCs and now have 550CCs. I don't see a lot of difference. I am 123 lbs and about 5ft 6in. I'm a bit disappointed in the size. Also, my left breast looks a bit different compared to the right one.

I had 415cc implants placed under the muscle 2 weeks ago. I have tenting and want to know what is the likelihood of this resolving?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I was a 32B with a definite wide space between breasts. I had sagging from three nursing children. Worried that he put too large of implants in me.

Is this BII?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I am having a burning scratching feeling on my left breast. I’m 3 months post-op. I had saline under the muscle; 450 in right, 410 in left. I’m struggling with this pain. I have spoken with my PS and the nurse suggested an ultrasound. I am being referred to a breast clinic. I’m so down on myself and could cut these out as I have never been this way before.

Is the pain in my right breast a sign of bottoming out or capsule contracting?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I'm 6 months post-op with 350cc smooth dual plane implants. Checkup was fine until I noticed the right breast (one I have pain in) scar was slightly higher than left. My PS said he would do capsule revision due to lack of breast tissue but wasn't convinced this was the pain I was feeling. If I don't wear a bra, it feels uncomfortable unsupported. There's also slight discomfort in my arm and shoulder and pain in my ribs below the implant. The left breast has no pain.

Is this normal? Will my implant eventually tilt back?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I'm 6 weeks post-op. Breast implants over the muscle left 425cc right 380cc pure foam covered. My left breast seems to be looking ok, and the implant is sitting back against the chest wall. But with my right breast, the top of the implant sits out and the edging is pretty visible. It makes my boob look like it has a flat front profile (this is also how it feels in my hand) with saggy breast tissue at the bottom. I haven't noticed any change for 3 weeks.

Which is better, over or under the muscle implants? Also, what's a good size?
Breast Augmentation -2 answers
I'm 56 y/o, breastfed 3 children, and lost almost 100 lbs by working out. I'm unsure which implant placement I should get and am equally confused about which implant size because I wear VS (32D) and those are not “true” sizes. My surgeon recommends over the muscle and said 450 cc gummies would yield a true full C or small D. It’s hard because I don’t know what a true D looks like and I keep hearing OTM is bad, that you can see/feel the implants and they aren't natural-feeling or looking.

I have premature ventricular contractions. Which is safest for me, twilight or general anesthesia? What are the risks of each?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I have premature ventricular contractions and wanted to go with twilight anesthesia (MAC) rather than general anesthesia. I keep hearing scary stories about being overmedicated and you stop breathing as if you’re under general anesthesia. Just wanted someone to clear up the risk of this for me, if possible.

My left implant feels totally different than the right. Is this normal 4 weeks after breast augmentation surgery?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I had breast augmentation surgery 4 weeks ago. The right breast has dropped a lot and feels like my own breast. The left has dropped but not as much as the right. About 2 weeks out from surgery, the muscle in the left breast was spasming and was painful. I used heat and ice. Since then, the breast is sore and when it moves around, it makes a weird noise, like an old creaky door or rubbing a balloon. Only I can hear it.

Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I’m 9 weeks post-surgery. Do you believe they will get smaller? I’m okay with the size now but a little scared of them shrinking.

I'm 5'5", weight about 115 pounds, and barely have an A cup. Should I go with 295cc moderate profile silicone implants or 310cc?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
Hello, I have been debating between 295cc or 310cc moderate profile silicone implants from Natrelle (SRM). I’m 5’5", weigh about 115 pounds, and hardly have an A cup. My diameter is 11 cm. I'm wondering if 310cc implants would look too large on my frame. I’m concerned about having too large of breasts when my goal is about a full B cup or small C cup. I know that 25 cc is about half a shot glass, but was wondering if this will be noticeable on my frame.

What are your thoughts on the current FDA reviews of breast implants? All these contradictory statements have me confused.
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I watched part of the FDA events over the past two days, and there were so many women speaking out against breast implants. I have been happy and healthy with mine for years, but now they make it sound like I have a ticking time bomb in my chest. Where did all this come from? Is there any evidence to support the statements that implants will cause health issues? My surgeon says there is nothing to connect implants to any of these claims. I want to know the real science behind this.

I had under-the-muscle gummy bear breast augmentation 3 weeks ago. I'm experiencing increased numbness. It's spreading from my right breast to my entire side (under armpit) and to some of my back (latissimus dorsi). Below my ribs seem to be fine.
