Hi from a Newbie!

My before (aka current) photo

Hi ladies! I figure it’s time to introduce myself. I’m Rachel and I’m planning on scheduling my BA for late January 2020 (have yet to pick an exact date!) 

I just went to my initial consultation about two weeks ago and my emotions have been on quite the roller coaster. Before I went in, I was pretty set on going through with surgery. In the days following and continuing to research, I would go from “not sure” to “nope not happening anymore” to “yes totally doing it” - the latter being my current mindset. Since discovering Bustmob and reading all of your stories and seeing progress photos, I feel more prepared than ever to accept the journey of going through with a BA and all the ups and downs that come with it. Of course, this isn’t to say I’m still pretty scared! I do worry that the outcome won’t be exactly what I want, but I know there’s also a good chance I could fall even more in love with my body than I already am!

So I will be getting Sientra gel round silicone implants (not sure the exact model, but it’s a brand new one that my PS says is supposed to last 20 years!), looking to do 350-400cc unders with an IMF incision. Still not sure on what profile to go with, but I do want them to look as natural as possible. 

My stats are as follows:

30 years old 

5’4 1/2”

130-135 lbs

34B

No kids

Please share your progress photos if your stats are similar, and went with a similar size! I’d love to hear any input as well if you think it sounds like I’m aiming too big/small (I also asked my PS to send me my BWD, so I’ll add that as soon as I know). Thanks for reading, and can’t wait to hear from you! 
 

Also including my before (aka current) photo!

  • That sounds exactly like how I’ve been feeling. I am scheduled for a BA in December, but I keep worrying about the recovery, not being happy with the results and the risks plus cost... 

     

    I have similar stats- 

    5’4”

    125ish

    34 years old, 3 kids

      Rachel right now I’m planning on Silicone gummies under the muscle between 350-450 ccs.

  • I have similar stats as well. 5 ft. 6, 155, 34B, 12 BWD.....I'm also probably getting about the same size (350 cc's), and my boobie bday will be Dec. 19th. High Profile Mentors, smooth, round. I would love up to 500 cc's but my PS isnt sure that will fit. So shes starting at 350 with and seeing what will work. After trying on the sizers though, I'll be happy with that. I've got asymmetry and with the small size of my breasts shes worried about stretch/skin. One thing about the size... if we aren't happy, once we are stretched a bit, we can always go back and get bigger implants.

       oh yeah, also getting unders. I think that 350 to 400 would look great on you, with your frame. Especially if you're aiming for a more natural look.

      B. Kind you’ll have to let me know what you PS ends up going with! When I tried on sizers at my first consultation, I liked the 350ccs. 400 just felt a little too big. However, I know boob greed is real and I’d hate to wish I went bigger! But you’re right, going bigger later is always an option. I think I’ll just really take my time when I go to my next consultation.

      Rachel that was my thought as well. I liked 350, but know some size is lost under the muscle. The nurse said 550 fit my frame better (I'm built bigger, more athletic), and I liked it even though it looked big to me... I knew that I'd be covered with possible future boob greed. But I probably cant fit it anyway. I'd be happy with the 400 range. Especially after living this long with so little :)

      Renee no way! I was wondering when I'd come across someone with the same date! That means its getting closer/realer, so excited!!

  • I feel the same, OP.  Check out my screen name.  Today I’m on the ‘I’m definitely getting them done’ side of the fence.  I would like to loose 25-30 lbs before though.

  • My stats are almost identical. I'm 5'3 and 136lbs. Bwd was 12.5. I received 375/275cc natrelle moderate profile unders just 2 weeks ago. If you click on my profile you will see pics. Very early to see results as they are sitting quite high.

      Confuzzled congrats!! How is your recovery going? I’m sure it’s still a little too soon to tell, but are you happy with the size you chose so far? I’m just so scared to go too big

      Rachel recovery is going well, thanks! Only been 2 weeks but I can finally sleep on my side and wear a sports bra. I think I'm happy with the size although it's too soon to know. The one with 375 is sitting higher and is more tight. I always wore a push up bra previous to surgery so I would say that in clothes I look the same (which is what I wanted) but naked is much bigger. I was terrified of going too big and 375 was the biggest I could do with the moderate profile given my BWD.

  • Hello and welcome! I just wanted to tell you that your natural breasts are so so perfect! If you are ever planning to have kids, I would wait. That way you are restoring or correcting..if that makes sense. You will never get these boobs back after implants. Seems a shame to damage these beauties..lol. I had nice B cup boobs and at 25 had implants. Then in 2018 I had them out.. totally wrecked my boobs! So now I have to get new implants just to look normal. 

    Anyhoo good luck with whatever you decide. :)

      JFoster87 you are so kind, thank you!! I actually don’t plan on having kids, so now seems like as good a time as any for me! I’m so sorry you had to go through that. I appreciate your input though, it’s nice to hear perspectives from all sides!
