I am scheduled for a BA in September. I'm currently 5'6'', 125lbs, 32/34A and hope to lose 5-8 lbs before my surgery (mainly to decrease the fat in my hips and thighs since it's the only place I really have any fat). I go for my sizing the third week in August. My PS recommended HP silicone unders filled to 350cc. He said that would give me a full C cup. I'm concerned if I lose 5-8lbs (which will flatten my boobs even more), that the 350cc won't give me the size I want (boobie greed? lol). Would 400cc look too big on me? I have a small ribcage and upper body in comparision to my hips. I don't want to go through surgery and not be happy with my final size however. Please help!
The trouble with this surgery is you can have 2 patients - each about the same size and do the same operation with the same implants, and get two different results. At the time of my BA, I was 5'6", 118 lbs., and was about a 32/34B - not a full B. I wanted to be a full C - back to my original size before kids. I had 350 cc MP Silicone unders and am now a solid 34DD. Total shocker when I had the measurements done because I didn't think by looking at them they would measure double digits. They are bigger than I wanted, but they don't look unrealistic for my frame. I have a smallish frame. Overall, I'm happy with them.
I honestly don't think the 5-8 lbs. will make a big difference in the size you end up with. It may a tad, but I can fluctuate 5 lbs here and there - especially with my TT swelling and having taken so much time off hard exercise. I don't experience really any difference in my breast size with a 5 lb. swing. Which is good, since maintaining 118 lbs at my age can be difficult - especially when my workout schedules lull even a little.
I know that wasn't much help, but it's my experience and we are about the same size.
Thank you so much for the reply OKCmomma! It's helpful to hear what women similar to my height and weight have experienced after a BA. I have a small upper frame, so I think my PS was trying to be conservative and not give me too many CC's to avoid a "fake" look. I've been flat all my life, however, and if I'm going through this, I want to do it right with no regrets. You started off a little larger than me. (B cup vs A cup), so I probably wouldn't be DD after surgery. I'm so excited, I'm thinking about moving up my surgery date!
Glad you were able to change your surgery date, wish I could do the same! have you decided on your size already? I think sometimes it is best to leave the work to the doctor, just show him what you are hoping to achieve. Skinny girls like you have a hard time getting bigger implants due to small frame and lack of tissue... have you discussed that with your doc? I am stressing about the same thing. I am smaller than you (5feet3 112 pounds) checked your album and like you, I cannot manage to fill a bra Recently I posted on "ask an expert" and that can be helpful - I had two PSs replies... Another way to play with things - I just purchased the purlz sizers, have you heard? I will be having my surgery on the august 24, so I will time to play with sizers and see what is most comfortable. As for you losing weight, it could affect the amount of tissue you have to begin with. Each woman is different... I know if I lose weight my boobs get smaller (imagine that!!! they are already inexistent ), but it could take a good 10 pounds to make any difference. Good luck and hope all goes well
