my girls have been defeated...or deflated...nonetheless.. I decided to put a spring in their step, and get them upgraded. I literally have nothing except nipples. I run alot and I don't even need a sports bra. I just wear a compression tank and so I have a chest like a boy :( ..actually we were joking around one time and my husband said he had bigger breasts than me.. of course he retracted the statement and apologized profusely, but sadly it's true.
So, the reason I'm here is to get some input from those who have already gotten an augmentation or are thinking about getting an augmentation. Silicone or Saline?
I'm getting a submuscular implant, because I literally have no breast tissue..with either a moderate or a moderate + profile..
I didn't even bf my lo's & I still lost all 'bounce' & volume! Now they look completed deflated. It was just from the weight I gained & then lost during pregnancies. (That's why I always think its so funny when women say they don't want to bf because it will ruin their boobs. I'm proof even if you don't they still won't look the same!)
omg when i nursed my dd i was a good size C cup. Then I shrunk to a itty bitty A. And no matter what I do I have such pointy boobs that it looks like I could cut glass.
I want new boobs sooooo bad! I hate my little ones. But dh says they are perfect and won't let me spend that kind of money. LOL
LOL! I asked my husband to tell me what he really thought, and he pretty much agreed with me... I think we both miss the breasts I had when breastfeeding :( lol
I don't think the doc gave me an exact # of years that I should replace them. I guess I will determine that as I go. But yeah, the nurse said no one is going in to have them mammogramed unless they have a problem of course.
I was wondering about that ... I knew about needing to do it & the cost, but not how many actually do it. How long until its recommended you replace your implants? Or do they recommend that at all?
You don't HAVE to. I asked the nurse if many women go in an do that and she said no, they don't.
If you do silicone you have to pay out of pocket for a mamogram every 5 yrs (I think its 5?) to check for leaks ... That runs about $800 from what I have heard.
