1 year 8 months PO


[Image]

Hi all!! I’m a year and eight months post op and am 20 weeks pregnant with my first. My surgeon did a GREAT job with my BA. However, I’ve always felt like I wish I’d gone a little smaller. My implants fit my frame well, I’ve just always felt like I look top heavy since I am petite. Especially when I wear flowy shirts and sweaters, which happens to be most of what I like to wear. Now that I am pregnant my boobs have only gotten a bit bigger, and I can tell they plan to grow more because they are SO ITCHY. I am worried that after the baby comes they’ll be bigger than they were pre-pregnancy. I would eventually love to go back to swap for smaller implants, it’s just getting the man on board that I know will be difficult. Has anyone else gone through an experience similar? 😭

 

Attached is my current photo. I am 5’1 110lbs (pre-pregnancy and preop) currently 114lb, BWD 13cm and received 320cc overfilled to 340cc high profile under the muscle salines.

  • They look great! Personally, I wouldn't even consider a revision until you are completely finished with pregnancy, breastfeeding, and get back to whatever weight you'd like to be.  Breasts change so, so much! I went from a 32D to a 36G+ to a 32B with 3 pregnancies and 7+ years of breastfeeding (hence the breast lift & implants, LOL).

  • Use lots, lots, lots of booby cream/stretch mark lotions for your beautiful boobs! If they are itchy may be a sign that they are stretching and stretch marks can come. It is only normal due to your pregnancy and they will grow even more if you plan to breastfeed your baby. Good luck and congratulations!!

      Indira1 I second this! I lost so much breast tissue after 3 pregnancies and breastfeeding.

  • Haley, Congratulations on your pregnancy. Give yourself grace for the next 2 years. Your body is growing a baby and it’s going to go through lots of changes. Breast growth is one of them. The good news is that you’re young and your body will “ bounce back “after baby #1. It’s baby #2 + that keep plastic surgeons in business. (joking, mostly). I had a pregnancy after my implants and what I found was that 9 years later, after breastfeeding and weight gain/ loss- I’m ready for a breast implant exchange- to go smaller. Take your time in making any decisions post baby and for now, enjoy the wonder of pregnancy. Your body is capable of amazing things!!!! Enjoy your pregnancy. I recommend Jenny Eden’s Boobie Butter to help prevent stretch markets and relieve the itching you’re experiencing - which is a totally normal thing. You can even use the same butter on your belly too!!!

  • I went from a 34b to a 36c/d with initial nursing, leveled at a 34c with breastfeeding (months 3-14) and went back to a deflated 34b after all my kiddos.  Really it will depend on how much weight you retain after you’re done nursing.  Most women will lose breast volume after they’ve nursed babes unless they retain a bit of weight.  There are some exceptions but it’s not the norm.

  • Hi! I am 5,3ish and 100lbs.. petite as well. I had 400cc high profile saline implants, gone through a pregnancy, and while they might have gotten a tad larger, I didn’t notice a huge difference. My right implant eventually bottomed out and I had always felt top heavy as well. In July of this year, I downsized to 250CC silicone mod plus implants. Best decision ever! I love love love the size. At first though, I thought I had gone too small but the more I adjusted to them, I knew my surgeon and i made the right choice on size! Good luck

  • My breast got significantly bigger during breast feeding and then we’re honestly smaller after my kids weaned. That’s actually a big reason I got my BA. I agree with waiting until you are done having kids before making any revision decisions.

  • Congrats!!!! Yours look fabulous! Be patient.  Pregnancy and breast feeding change our bodies so much! I would wait until you are done breast feeding to even consider a revision. I am also very petite, 4'11" 105# and was naturally over endowed, 30-32 H/I... nursing babies left me with a VERY deflated B/C, with tons of extra skin. I first got implants in my mid 30's, 400cc saline unders, They brought me back to a full DD/DDD, no lift needed, but after 17 years I had lost enough breast tissue and had some lateral displacement so I went in for a pocket revision and to swap to silicone, I got 485cc still unders and no lift needed.  Those implants only brought me up to a full C. In order to feel like myself, and be able to wear my current clothing, I exchanged again to 700cc unders. At age 51, I am much smaller than I was naturally, but I am now back at a full DDD. I guess my point is, your body will change, and while genetics gave me huge breasts, kids took them away, and I had to get a "refill" to feel like myself again, so don't be too hasty in making those decisions.  Wait and see what your body does.

  • Thank you everyone for all your feedback! It’s tough to see your breasts go through changes, then to expect even more when you already wanted them smaller lol! Everyone offered great advice and I think it is best to wait until we are done having kids. Hopefully my current implants will save my boobs some from extra skin post breastfeeding 🤔

    Congrats, doll!! I intend to exchange mine after kids. I wouldn't want to have to have them done after each child... I'll wait until I'm done having babies.
