I have to giggle a bit, b/c I feel like we let it all hang out here on 3FC, so here's the nitty-gritty.
I used to be a C up, up to a D cup for awhile during breastfeeding and at the height of my weight gain. I knew I would lose some volume as I lost weight, but it was starting to become traumatic. I went back down to a C. No prob. A month later I was a full B. Two months later a small B. By the time I had my surgery (9 months into my weight loss), I was wearing a 34B and barely filled half of it up. I had spent so much money everytime I went down a size, b/c I never, ever thought I could possibly get smaller. But I did. I wore my bras way too big for about 8 weeks, b/c I knew I was getting surgery and didn't want to waste any more money. But I went in to get measured the day before my surgery and I was a 32A.
For me, it wouldn't be upsetting being an A cup, if they were well-shaped, etc. But the only reason they were even an A, was from all the skin that USED to be a D.
So sad...and floppy. LOL Thankfully I didn't need a lift, b/c that is more invasive surgery.
My doctor and I talked extensively about what size would suit my body, since I am naturally very curvacious, even when weighing very little. He told me I would probably be a D afterwards, and right now I am about a DD, but they are still swollen. I got 450cc on each side, which is quite a bit, but since I had literally no breast tissue, it filled the skin back up. My friend is having hers done next month and she is getting 320cc put in, but will probably be my size in the end, b/c she still has some volume to her breasts.
The surgery was pretty awful. I can't lie. My doctor goes in through the armpit, and I had silicone "gummy bear" implants put in under the muscle. It's silly to say, but they feel great. Very natural and squishy. LOLOL The recovery was much crazier than I had anticipated. I couldn't feed myself for a couple of days or really move, mostly b/c of not being able to use my arms. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since my surgery and I am still sore constantly and can't raise my arms 100% above my head. My incision sites still hurt the most, but they are healing well and I didn't have any complications.
I was very upset at first and wondering why on earth I did this to myself! Mostly b/c the recovery was just so awful and I can't stand sitting still. But everyday it gets better and I finally bought new bras and summer shirts. I'm very happy with my decision.
