    Ss84 got a reaction from kimba14 in Pre-surgery boob greed! Am I crazy?   
    If I were you I would definitely reschedule an appt with your surgeon to try on different sizers to clear your mind.
    I am currently 16dpo and I'm slightly taller than you at  160cm and 52kg and I went 375cc mod + and I'm absolutely heartbroken that I never went bigger. I was so uncertain with the size right up until I got put to sleep and my gut just told me I had made the wrong choice. Everyone keeps telling me that they are going to change over the months and to be patient, but everyday that passes they are definitely getting smaller. It took me 10years to persuade my hubby (although glad now I waited until after I had kids) and I am gutted that I didn't get the outcome I had thought about for so long. In clothes you would never tell I even had boobs and my padded bras gave me the same effect. My surgeon has done a terrific job and they look great, I just never expressed myself the way I should. 
    Im not telling you to go bigger, nor persuade you to change your mind on size but I'm definitely encouraging you to make another appt to express your concerns with your surgeon so your 100% confident in your decision! 
    Good luck!

    I have major boob greed! I am 12 weeks post op and completely regret ever having my boobs done. They are way smaller than I had hoped and when I had my review appt with my surgeon he said that my implant size was quite large for my frame. One boob still hasn't dropped and I feel that it's a little flat around the nipple, my breasts feel numb and you can barely tell I have boobs. Sorry for the rant ?

    Thanks ladies. I'm trying to remain positive and I'm hoping with time I will learn to love them.
    The decision to have my boobs done wasn't made lightly and it was a 14 year debate with my hubby... a bloody hard man to crack!!! I guess because if this I'm left even more disappointed because I had very high expectations. My husband has never been interested in boobs and is definitely a butt man so it was purely for myself that I had them done. 
    I have been a full time stay at home mum to our 4 kids for the past 8 years, so I feel guilty that I've spent 12k on myself and not feel satisfied when the money could have been used elsewhere!

    Ss84 got a reaction from Mumma-K in Recovery timeframes for Mums with young kids.   
    Hi @Mumma-K, 
    I have recently had BA surgery and have 4 little ones ranging from 15mths, 3 yrs, 5yrs & 7yrs. 
    My hubby could only take the first 4 days off work, and after that I had my mum pop in and out. Our 3 year old is very independent,  and she would either walk or ride her scooter to the school and back each day to collect the older ones, while I pushed the pram with the 15mths old. I surprisingly found this very easy.
    My surgeon recommended no lifting for the first 2 weeks, but understood sometimes this can't be avoided. I definitely tried to stick to his advise as closely as possible, however hard it was.
    I only did light cleaning the first 3 weeks eg, no mopping (this felt funny to do), or vacuuming (my mum did this for me), trying to hang washing on the line let a little awkward, but ok on a step ladder. I drove to my post op appt  day 5 and this felt perfectly fine. 
    Fortunately,  all in all, my recovery was a walk in the park. I didn't require any heavy pain killers after discharge from hospital and only took a couple of panadol here and there. I think remaining in bed and doing very little the first 4 days while hubby was home really helped. 
    Good luck! I hope it all goes well

    I have mentor smooth rounds and I'm currently 6 weeks post op. My breasts are starting to become quite soft and definitely getting a little jiggle? I'm sure this will increase further over time.

    Ss84 got a reaction from Watergirl in I think I chose the wrong size   
    Hey Hun, 
    Sorry that your not feeling satisfied with your results. You are still early days so there is still plenty of time for change. 
    I am 6 weeks post op this Thursday, and I also regret not having gone bigger. I choose 375cc mod + and they simply do not have the projection I am after. I felt heartbroken straight after surgery as I just knew that no amount of dropping and fluffing was going to be able to make them the size I hoped for. 
    I am yet to have my 6 week review appt with my ps but I will definitely be having a chat with him about my options done the track once I'm completely recovered. 
    The early recovery period is a roller coaster of emotions, try to remain positive. I know I've chosen the wrong size but I'm over the moon with the shape and the efforts of my PS. I hope you can also extract something positive from your experience too ☺️

    Congrats on your new boobs ? I'm glad you like the shape. Your boobs will go through major changes in the next few weeks so just be patient (hard I know!) Your boobs will appear slightly smaller when the swelling subsides and then they should fluff out ( I'm nearly 6 weeks post op and still waiting for this ?) 
    Try to stop stressing and rest up as much as possible ?

    Ss84 got a reaction from I HaveBoobs in Overdid it?   
    Hey, you've probably just overdone it a little. I only had help the first 4 days and then my hubby had to go back to work. Im in the same boat as you with little ones, we have 4 under 7 and the youngest is 15months. My surgeon said that he understands sometimes lifting can't be avoided but keep it to a minimum, he said I wouldn't do any damage to implant as such just be more sore. I got a little set of step ladders and guided my baby in his cot on his own (he found very amusing ?) and then helped him climb out. When our oldest was home from school he did all the other lifting in and out of highchair, bath ect. 
    Im now 3wks po and I feel like a could run a marathon! I've had a very easy recovery. I hope apart from being sore your recovering well!

    Ss84 got a reaction from cm29 in When did yours drop?   
    Unfortunately I opted for a conservative size 375cc.... I'm not sure what I expected of this and I guess I was so unrealistic about my outcome. I was scared of looking too big as I'm very petite with minimal curves, I know realise larger implants can still look completely natural!  I definitely regret my decision with size! 
    I am very happy with shape at this point though, so at least that's something ?

    Thanks hun for explaining, it does completely make sense however, at my po op appt last week the nurse said I could expect to see a slight DECREASE in size so that's why I'm not feeling optimistic.

    I completely agree with what you've said! 
    No one size will look the same on anybody. Everyone's anatomy is completely different and even if people are comparing similar stats the chances are skin elasticity, muscle tightness ect will all be different and plays a role in the final outcome. I thought 375cc would look big on my as I'm a very small 160cm, 52kg with minimal curves but somehow they are lost on me. 
    Good luck tomorrow! So happy for you, that you took the step to discuss your concerns with your surgeon and your at peace with your decision! 
    I hope you enjoy your new boobs!
