I had my first BA in 2007 with 300cc moderate profiles. I wanted a change as the saline implants were hard and small and I could feel rippling. This time around I decided to go with silicone implants as I have read they feel softer and have a better look. The PS I have is amazing! She took a lot of time explaining the differences between the implants and suggest that I go with 425cc HP silicone implants. She felt I was looking for more projection. I tried on several different implants and was torn between 425 and 525. I decided to go with the 425 as my PS said I have a small frame and felt that would be best for me. I am now 10 days post op and actually wishing I had went with the 525cc. I love the projection, softness and the fullness of my new implants, I also have some cleavage going on but I do not like the size.
My healing was very different compared to the first time around. I have actually had very little pain. My first time I went through the umbilical and that was very painful. My abdomen actually hurt worse than my breasts. I am very happy that I went with the incision under the breast. Another difference I have noticed this time around is that I am actually very emotional. I just do not like the size I choose and I will be seeing my surgeon tomorrow to discuss this with her. My husband says I look great and says that these implants are bigger and look so much better compared to the previous one which looked like to grapefruits on my chest. Maybe I am not seeing what he is or he is just being nice. Regardless I know that it is to soon after my BA to judge the final results, so I guess I will have to be patient.
