From Lift to Augmentation!

At 32 (no kids) I had a breast lift due to weight loss over the years. I wanted to do a BL & BA at the same time but after the advice of my Dr. (he knew my #1 priority was getting ‘em as high as possible not necessarily much bigger!) I decided to do it in 2 phases. I am SO pleased with my lift, but now I’m a large B and would like to be a little bigger (I want some cleavage!). 

I LOVE this group and am finding it so helpful. Im interested in hearing from anyone who already had some breast tissue (B-C) and who decided to only go slightly bigger. 

At my consult they suggested 250CC. I’m worried I’ll wish I had gone bigger BUT I’m very athletic (CrossFit, boxing, marathons) and do not want to inhibit my fitness in any way, so I’m thinking maybe 250 would be fine?

Im 5’2, 128lbs. Anyone with a similar journey willing to share?! Thanks to all you beautiful ladies!

  • You already have a great starting point and look very good. I read that every 200cc increases you one cup size.  Sounds like 250-300 would be what you want.

    I'm 124 lbs and 5'2 started w 34A.  Got 485.  Now 34DD in Victoria secret. Real life prob 34D. Good luck.

  • I didn't start out with much tissue (I was a deflated 32a/b after 2 kids), but I got 350cc and am measuring as a 32DD. I am also super active, and I personally feel I could've gone smaller and been happy with them. I'm still figuring out how to dress a small frame with larger breasts, and I think if I'd gotten 275/300cc just to fill out my saggy skin, they would've looked great and I would look very proportionate. I do like that I'm more voluptuous, but I look back at pictures of my small frame with small breasts (pre-kids) and like that as well.

      frannypro That’s super helpful and definitely makes me think I’ll be ok with what my Dr. suggested. I watched one of Jenny’s videos where she said you should decide if you wanna err on the side of a little too small or a little too big and with an active lifestyle I think erring on small would be ok. Thank you again for sharing and you look AMAZING by the way 🤩

  • I’m 5’3” and 125 pounds.  I was a deflated 34B and chose 225cc saline implants. My current bra size is 34D. I also didn’t want to go too big- my goal was one cup size, so I am a little bigger than I was hoping for.  I have to say, though, that I am very happy with the size they are now.

      Linda thank you! I’m finding most people echo what you said, that they were a tad on the bigger side than anticipated but that they’re happy with that. Thank you for sharing this is very helpful!

  • I'm 5'7" and 145 lbs. I workout a lot as well. I had decent breast tissue before my BA and got 320cc round cohesives under the muscle. I'm happy with my size and would've been disappointed with the doctor's original suggestion of 275ccs. However, since I'm taller than you, you're surgeon's suggestion may give you similar results. Obviously, the first two pictures are pre-op and the last 3 are this month at about 4 MPO. I posted the dress picture so you could see how they look in clothes. I'm not wearing a bra.

      Ashley Lynn Thank you so much for replying, I look very similar to your before now so this is super helpful. Especially considering you look AMAZING now, I would be thrilled with your results. Also makes me think I’d be fine going a little bigger. I’m going to try on 300s at my pre op and see how that feels. Thank you again for sharing, exactly what I was looking for!

      adrienneb I'm glad you found it helpful. I should also mention that my implants are a moderate profile, not high, which gives them more of a natural look.

  • First of all, I just want to say you look great!!! 

    I am planning a lift with implants.  I went to my first consult and he recommended a small implant of 300. 

    Second consult said 2 stage, lift first.  He even thinks I might be happy without the implant (I’m imagining I’ll look like yours)    I’m thinking about going with his route and wait a few months or over a year before I decide on the implants. Like you, my biggest thing is wanting the lift. 

    I cannot wait to see what you choose!

      SarahKy I have seen a lot of people who have been happy with a lift and implant at the same time, but me personally, I am SO happy I did it in two stages. I think I got much better results (as far as gettin’ em up high!) without an implant, and now I feel like I look more like the girls who only need implants. Keep me posted on what you choose! I’m attaching my lift before and after so you see what kind of results you can get with just a lift!

      adrienneb omg yes! Thank you! Reminds me of mine right now!!! I’ll share this with my husband.  He thinks, after talking to the one dr, I should do the 2 stage lift.  I told him I’d be ok going without the implants for a little while longer due to the extra cost because I’ve been wanting this lift for sooooo long, what’s a little longer?

      SarahKy exactly! And you’ll be SO happy with your after you won’t feel rushed to do implants...you can do braless and wear bikini tops you couldn’t before it’s GREAT! I’m excited to get some small ones but haven’t been in a hurry because I feel so good now! Will definitely keep up with your progress, good luck!
