Thanks a million ..I feel a bit more at ease now. Did you have to take long off work? Iv booked off a week and a half. Hope this is long enough. Are you free to go home the day after the op? Do you have to get stitches taken out or are they dissolvable? How long afterwards do you have to wear a sports bra for? Sorry for all the questions, got a bit nervous doing my consultations and didn't ask as many questions as I should have.

I went with 290cc (brings me to a 32D at moment, thinking my final result will be a 32c) I was very flat before so I only wanted the shape I was getting without a bra. I found it sore the 3 days after but I was on ibuprofen and paracetamol through out the days so it was manageable. I do find it tough some days not being able to just do all the things that I could do before surgery but u do need to take ur time, I'm very impatient. I have some asymmetry so I am now too after surgery but I was well informed before hand of that. 

An odd time I do regret it but again that is me being impatient but I think about the times I will be able to fill a swim suit and other things like have a shape. 

I'm normal enough now  I went under the muscle (which I think takes longer to heal) so I still get tightness in the chest muscles but it comes and goes  it's just accommodating the implant  

As for boob greed. I think a lot of people go through it. I'm def not one of them. If anything I'm happy I didn't go bigger. When I was at my consult I had the doc keep putting in sizes til I got to the point of that is too big. Though every consult I went smaller. It depends on if u want others to notice too. 25cc or 50cc won't make a difference if ur torn between sizes it's more 100cc that will make a difference. I just wanted a handful and I have more than enough. If u can show ur consultant pics and shapes it may help get an idea.  

Hope that helps.

Hi Nervous Dolly. 

Thanks for getting back to me. 

How are you feeling three weeks post op?

Is there much pain at this stage?

I just told work today that I needed time off so at least thats another thing off my mind.

Do you mind me asking what size you went for?

I hope i'm making the right choice. 

The surgeons assistant told me I might regret not going bigger but I don't want big, I just want a handful.

Hi Sarahstr. 

Im 3 weeks post op tomoro. I was like u, so nervous. I was so scared the day before, it was all I could think about and I was crying too and on the morning of it as well. But it was fine. I went in and I had to wait hours which was bad but bring something to occupy ur mind. The nurses and people are great to ease ur mind and when they put the anaesthetic into ur hand u feel a bit fuzzing but it just knocks u out. Any questions u have feel free to ask. If I had to have surgery again I don't think I would be anywhere near as bad.

Hi everyone. I am booked for breast enlargement surgery for the end of this month . Starting to get really nervous, and starting to have second thoughts about it just because of my fear of the operation itself. It's something I've wanted now for years though so I really want to go through with it. Decided on going with a 265 size implant. Would really like to chat to someone who has been though this procedure to hopefully settle my nerves

Hi guys?

I'm 21 and over the past year or so have seriously been considering having my boobs done!! I used to have huge boobs and an average/small figure but I've lost weight over the past year and my boobs are soooo saggy!! I used to love them and now I can't stand to look at them.. it's like there's no elasticity in my boobs they're just soft and saggy!! People even comment on how my boobs have shrunk, which can be annoying but the size isn't the main issue for me now!! Anyone here have the same issues?? Can you get a brest lift at the same time as augmentation or is it better off to do them separately?? Or will implants fill out the skin?? Would really love to hear your stories.

Hi I see a few posts here without replies so I thought I'd give a quick update.. I got a BA back in 2010 in Dublin.  I didnt go to any of these advertised clinics but I got a referral from my doctor.  He referred me to one of the top BA and reconstructive surgeons in Ireland.  it was more expensive than some of those advertised but this is your body, and its an invasive procedure so I really dont think you can scrimp on something like this. Its not like botox or fillers that will dissappear after a while themselves.   I was in hospital overnight and released the next day.  As it turned out my procedure was not straightforward as I had a congenital problem called tubular breast disorder which made me even more glad I went with such a well qualified surgeon.  Its now 6 years later and I have a few small issues which had been raised as possibilities to me at the time of the op.. the first is that one breast was a bit saggy to begin with and we had to decide at the time whether to do lift at the same time which I opted against because of the anchor scar it would leave.. I do now notice a difference between this side and the other which has remained perfect. It seems like the implant has moved a bit to the side but its barely noticable and not noticable whne I wear a bra.  I'm obvioulsy just more aware.  The other small issue is that I can feel the edge of the implant in that same breast which has a slightly scalloped feel.  this is because of mild contracture (caused most likely by my continuing to smoke!) but is not noticeable to anyone else other than I poke at it a bit.  I knew with my disorder I'd never have perfect perfect breasts but I have to say he did a very very good job.. so few small things over time but overall it was still the best decision I've ever made.

Hi all 

a question to anyone that has a BA done for a few years have you experienced any complications since I've read a few horror stories that have accrued in the years following the surgery anyone that could let me know of their own experience, and would you need a follow up surgery in 10 years ?

I had my breast implants installed last month. It looks so much better than my old flat chest. The recovery was smooth and quick. But the scars still remain. How long does it take for it to fade. Can anyone suggest me a few creams.

Hey guys i am so unhappy with my boobs they were never big but after 3 pregnancys they are now really small :( i find myself constantly thinking and wondering about getting them done and have being considering this the last 3 years. My question is there any clinics or hospitals that would take installments to pay for the surgery, maybe a down payment and then installments? I would never be acle to get the price all together but could afford them over time im so depressed and down in myself

I've just had a combined bilateral breast mastopexy/augmentation 2 days ago .(Thursday) I'm a young professional in my early 20's so found it hard enough to find Any personal reviews /experiences from people who had the procedure so I've decided to try and help any woman thinking of having it done!

So I was unfortunately blessed with saggy breasts and asymmetry . As a 23 year old this was quite an embarrassing thing for me. I've always been slim enough , however May have gained a few alcohol related pounds in university ! Anyway being a young professional I decided it was time to change my was truly destroying my confidence on the inside. So I attended my first consultation with my PS in Jan 2014 in Dublin. My PS described my breasts as deflated balloons ..too much excess skin a little breast tissue, for this reason I would need bilateral implants alongside a lift..quite frankly, at 23 I had the boobs of a 70 yr old. 

Im a bit of a gym bunny so I was conscious that implants would be heavy and big etc so I was a bit concerned how this would effect my gym routine and of course the last thing I wanted was for people to think "she's had a boob job" it needed to be subtle and natural looking. I decided to go with implants under the muscle, 220cc L breast and 190cc R breast ( this was to balance my asymmetry) I still wanted a bust to be approx a 34D-DD ( I had always had a bust and when I was a little heavier I did go up to an E so I wanted to look as though I had minimal work done). I had full confidence in my surgeon..she was fantastic , no expenses spared and booked my Op for May 8th 2014.

its now May 10th 2014 and I'm so happy with the results. 2 days post surgery ..I'm in a bit of discomfort .totally manageable under the control of my prescribed pain relief. I have a lot of swelling and bruising which is to be expected but I can't get into words how elated I feel having breasts which look pert round and sit where they're supposed to! I finally feel like a normal 23 yr old should feel. My scars look meet ( I'm still bandaged up) but my nipple placement look great and the anchor scar looks so neat. Safe to say I'm delighted. I can only imagine what day 7, day 14 and day 21 will look like!

please if anyone has any query about the procedure ask me! I only wish I could have found other experiences of the combined procedure on the net to calm my nerves and ask some Q! 

Neevey x

I’m finally going to get my BA done. I’m getting a lipo on lower and upper abdomen, flanks and on a small bit on my thighs. I tried losing weight, but it was really hard for the ab fat and the fat in flanks to go away, it hardly did! As for the boobs... Oh the boobs. Why the universe saw fit to make me so asymmetrical I'll never know. My boobs will be a tough job for a PS because there are several type of asymmetry: boob size, boob shape, nipple size and nipple location. As such it is very scary to think about what I may end up looking like. I am doing my best to select a qualified surgeon and thats about all I can do.

Hi I'm thinking of finally going ahead with a breast enlargement procedure but have heard horror stories so would like some suggestions from women who have had the surgery. Silicon over saline? Transaxillary or incision below the breast? Which is best? Is it better to stay overnight after surgery?  

any suggestions and tips would be great!

thank you!

I’m 5’2 and weigh 105. I got 375cc. That size was perfect for me, I’m glad I went with my instincts anything smaller wouldn’t have been worth it and anything bigger than 400cc for me would have been too big. After the heal and whn the swelling is all gone, they would get a bit smaller.

Increase Breast Size without Gaining Weight

There are many gimmicks on the market that claim to increase a woman’s bust size. However, many of these same products cause you to gain weight and retain water. While bigger breasts may be your ultimate goal, it’s unlikely that gaining a few pounds is in the plan. The following tips will help you make your breasts bigger without gaining extra weight.

Wild Yam Root

Taking supplements like wild yam root can make the breast larger. This is because it can increase estrogen production in some women, which leads to a bigger bust. Wild yam root also balances progesterone in the body, which can help to clear hormonal acne. However, in addition to making your breasts bigger, you may also gain weight, particularly in your midsection and hips, as this is an effect of estrogenic activity.

Push-Up and Underwire Bras

Until you decide which natural breast enhancement method is best for you, you can wear a push-up bra. These bras can make your breasts look one to two sizes bigger, which could make you feel more satisfied with the way you look in your clothing. Bras that have an underwire can also help to bring positive attention to your breasts. These bras will definitely come in handy to help make your torso look slightly thinner, and you don't have to worry about having any invasive procedures to get the breasts you want.

A Healthy Diet

Eating a balanced diet and staying away from processed foods can also prompt your breasts to grow. Foods that are high in antioxidants like raw fruits and vegetables can also help you to avoid stretch marks and blemishes on your breasts and make your breasts firmer. If you're trying to enhance you breast size, it's also important to stay away from tobacco and alcohol. These substances can stunt the growth of your breast cells to stop development and have even been linked to breast cancer.

A Toxic-Free Beauty Regimen

It's best to eliminate all toxins from your daily beauty routine if you want your breasts to grow. Stop using deodorants that contain aluminum, as this can stunt the growth of your breasts and slow down the function of your immune system. Household cleaners and pesticides that are not natural and organic also contain harmful chemicals that can disrupt the natural activity of your hormones, which can lead to delayed, non-existent or fluctuating breast growth. Using dangerous chemicals to clean your home or grow your food and flowers can also cause mental and emotional disorders.

Top 5 Advantages of Breast Massage

1. Breast massage can be done in the privacy of your home and is easy and effective. You also do not have to spend a lot of time doing it to achieve excellent results.2. Because the breast consists of tissue and adipose fat, massage is extremely effective in toning the tissue and improving the overall look of the breast. Tissue responds very well to stimulation and massage is the ideal type of stimulation.3. Just as in the case of exercise, massage helps to improve the contours of the breast. Although you cannot expect a huge increase in size by doing massage alone, there are massage techniques that mimic breast feeding which in turn stimulates breast development and growth.4. Embarking on a massage routine also has the advantage of putting women in touch with their breasts. Women who regularly massage their breasts are far more likely to notice changes in their breast tissue and have it checked out early on, which in turn saves lives.5. Massage in any form helps the body to release toxins and breast massage targets the lymphatic system which numerous women tend to have problems with.

I had my first consultation today. Doc suggested 340cc anatomical unders as i am looking to go from an a-small b to a large C/small D.  I have another consultation next week so will be interesting to see if they suggest the same.

Very nervous about getting the size right as I dont want them to look too big.  Only telling a couple of friends and hoping no one else will notice as i am wearing padded bras all the time at the moment. Also dont want to be left wishing that I went for bigger.  So hard to know!!

My email is if any of you want to chat via email as it takes a while for the messages to go up on here.  Would love to hear from anyone with BA experience as hoping to get them done now within the month.  So excited but also very nervous about the whole experience
