I just got my boobs done a few days ago and the results are amazing. It only cost $6000. I don't regret it for one minute. I love them. I can go out and wear cute little shirts that show cleavage without a bra! Anyone else on here have implants?

I would like to have something done. I am a 34A with a 5'5 125 pound body. I love the shape of my boobs. I just wish they were a little larger.


I wish I was 125 pounds. Want my 36Cs and I will be 125 pounds wink.gif I to am 5'5. Actually Im 5'4 3/4 but theres not much of a difference between that an 5'5 so I just say 5'5. Plus people dont talk like that. "So Molly how tall are you?" Me: "Im 5'4 and 3/4" lol.gif

I've got 'em. Had them for 7ish years. I'm only a 34 C, almost D with them, so it suits my frame since I'm 5'7". I felt more self-conscious and unfeminine prior to the augmentation. If one ruptures, I'm having it replaced. I am delighted I did it, but I would be ever so much more compliant with taking pain meds if I were to do it again.

I read that one can breastfeed with implants, provided it is under the muscle. Areolar insertion comes with more risks for nerve damage in the ductal area, and possible risk of damaging the ducts themselves. There are other means of insertion, too (like armpit!), but those require a longer area of tunneling to reach the final resting place for the implant.

Submuscular looks more natural, too, than above the muscle, and has less risk for capsular contracture, rupture, etc. It hurts one whole heck of a lot more because the muscle gets cut as well, and then there's a lot of handling of the tissue to create the pocket the implants are put in. It hurt like mad!

I really admire people who get implants! I am told that my breasts are big enough as they're 34 C /32 D's but because of my rib cage they seem to ME to be a lot smaller. With the wrong bra i just don't fill it the way i'd like to. If i had my wish i'd have fuller breasts as my ribcage size makes them not as full i suppose? does that make sense? anyways if i could get surgery without having family and friends hate me i would do it but since i can't i'll just sigh and wish evryone else the best! sigh.

I would happily get a boob lift/reduction. To me, THAT would be augmentation. xD I hate my boobs with a passion.

Are you guys at risk for having them rupture? I heard they don't last very long. They're safe(er?), now, right?

Sorry; I ask too many questions. xP

Are you still sore, Connie? I hear they really don't look their best until a few months down the road, so if you're pleased with them now, you're probably going to love them later.

The doctor told me that in 7 years only %10 of patients implants rupture. That's not to bad at all. The saline ones are safer cuz if it breaks then salt water goes in your body and not silicone. And saline is way less expensive too by like $2000!

Usually the length of time the saline implants last is an average of 10 years before they begin to leak or actually rupture. That's an average, so some people's last longer, or much less time.

Were yours under the muscle or over? Where's the incision? If under the muscle, you're ONE tough cookie to already be thrilled. biggrin.gif Remember, the swelling sometimes takes up to a month or more to go down with submuscular implants.

I was recently seeing a girl who'd had her breasts augmented, apparently they weren't a good shape. They felt very real, and she claimed her confidence doubled after she got them altered. I'm not sure they were enlarged much, just brought higher up.

I don't doubt that a bit. It makes a difference when one is used to smaller tissue there. It is suddenly very feminine and one feels wonderful. At least that was my experience. Did she seem self-confident?

I had a breast lift after I finished breastfeeding my second child .... really didn't care for the deflated balloon look. smile.gif I got small implants as part of the procedure, to give my breasts more fullness on top.

I was a C cup to begin with, so I was very emphatic with my surgeon about not getting any bigger than that. I have broad shoulders and pretty muscular arms, and I think larger breasts would have made me excessively top-heavy.

Anyway, I'm thrilled with my results ..... my breasts look and feel extremely natural, and the scars from the lift have faded really well.

I totally support women who want to augment their breasts for personal reasons, but I do advise anyone considering the process to think long and hard about how big they want to go. My sister-in-law, who has a very similar build to mine -- tall, athletic, broad-shouldered -- went for a large D-cup. Big mistake, IMO ..... she used to look really elegant in her clothes, and now she's just all boobs.
