My 4w progress with 560cc. Frankenboob. Tuberous breasts. Progress pics on comments below.

Surgery date 3rd July 2019 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 560 cc Natrelle SRX. Tuberous breast. Dual plane. Interna technique to correct deformity. 

It has definitely been a rollercoaster for me in all senses possible. I have already posted about my boyfriend dumping me 6dpo. 

I did it for me. But still... Hard to tell. 

Well, the procedure. 

It was either 470cc with areola reduction to further correct my tuberous breast. Or 560cc and see if I want to correct the areola shape and asymmetry in the future. I went for the second option. 

Anesthesia...no side effects or anything. 

I have the feeling that I could have been prescribed stronger painkillers. I never noticed a difference between taking them or not, everything was always equally tight and hard. 

I go through worse pain every month with my menstrual cycle so it was more the discomfort than the pain itself. What really surprised me was muscle weakness. 

Only now, 4 wpo, can I say I feel 80% myself. I was able to take a bus for the first time yesterday evening.

I know we all go through different experiences. 

I started working at 2wpo. Big mistake in my case. I am a teacher, I wasn't able to write on the board during that first week and carrying three or four books to school felt really hard on my pectoralis. Opening heavy doors seemed like hell, the fear of tearing the muscle or opening a stitch. I wish I had had 4 weeks off before resuming activities.

    When were you able to lift your arms freely?

      Susan still unbelievable how alike our chests look (you before, me still, lol). Why didn't you decide to fix the asymmetry? I too want size, but I want to fix them equally as much. My doc said I'd be lucky to get 550 (what I liked in sizers), but shes starting at 400 and will see what fits. It's the small boob that's dictating everything...... smh, damn boob. Lol.

      B. Kind hi! Going for areola reduction meant opting for a smaller implant. My PS said that if she reduced the areolas, at most she would fit 470cc, when I wanted something over 500cc. Then, I know some people have very successful areola reductions, but something about it just didn't seem ok... I feared I would get two perfect circles that looked foreign to me. And this might sound odd but although I was putting my whole body in my PS's hands, as we all do, I just couldnt come to terms with the idea of my areolas leaving my body for a couple of seconds for the reduction. I couldnt bear the thought of it... As you can see, very personal and subjective reasons. Also I just wanted volume. And I wanted to see some of my body reality after the BA. Of course I might change my mind as time goes by. But at this stage, this was the rationale behind my decision.

      Susan I really appreciate you going into detail! Thank you! 

      I too am faced with the same sort of decision and it is helpful seeing others like me, and the different things they've done. The why helps too, so again I really appreciate your candid response. I'm surprised they were able to fit all that. It's my small boob that's going to possibly hold me back from the size I'd like. That is according to each PS I've seen, including the one I scheduled with. So its neat seeing what can be achieved with our breast types. 

      I'll be following you closely to see how it goes. I'm not getting mine done until December. So how do you feel about them? Are you happy? Was it painful? I worry about the skin stretching.

      B. Kind Thank you for your interest. I am glad you still have some time to analyse things and make informed decisions.

      I have just uploaded a picture from today (6 weeks). Only in the last 72 hs have I started not to regret the surgery, to be honest.

      As they say here, this is truly an emotional rollercoaster for some of us. I used to read that pre op and think "but I'll be prepared". And you might claim I was because here I am but oh gosh, it's been quite a ride. 

       

      One of the first things I regretted was going too big, unlike most people here. It is only now I am starting to think maybe it was not a mistake. 

       

      It hurt but the pain itself was generally bearable. I think what made it worse for me was that it was an unknown sort of pain. Take this for example. I suffer from painful periods. That hurts more than the whole BA. But this was permanent (well, it seemed to be) and unknown. So those who are less apprehensive than I am or have more support around than me, must have definitely better rides. Plus each body is completely different. 

       

      What struck me, more than the pain, was the weakness I never expected. I had been told and I had read here the things you were not supposed to do by most PSs like lifting heave weights, lifting your arms. I had always taken it as doctor's instructions. But I "felt" the instructions in the flesh... I couldn't even think of the idea of lifting anything at all, I just felt the inability and weakness to do it. 

       

      Will yours be unders or overs? I know that makes a whole difference. And it also depends on your muscle, technique, PS's skills... So everybody is different. 

      So far I have just had very small almost invisible strechmarks. My I can tell my skin and muscle would have appreciate something in the 400ccs range hahaha rather than 560cc.

      Let me know if I can be of help.
