Anyone have breast implants??

I'm going to be getting breast implants this coming year. Just curious about other peoples experience with them....any input would be good.

I had them for a year following a double mastectomy. When a bone tumor was detected in my sternum, I opted to have the implants removed along with the tumor. Perhaps because I had no breast tissue of my own, I found them painful and annoying.

I had them for 6 years and had them taken out a year ago this Tuesday. I like them while I had them and they still looked good. I never had an issues with them except that I did lose a considerable amount of feeling in one side.
I had overs and after 2 pregnancies they looked pretty bad. My breasts really overreaced to pregnancy and went from a C to a DD while pregnant and to an F when my milk came in. I'm only 5'5" and in pretty good shape so you can imagine how funny I looked!

Overall my experience very good, but I just didn't want to deal with the possibility of other surgeries in the future, let alone be able to afford it. Also, had I known how my body would react I would've waited until after I had kids.

Not trying to hijack your thread but on a similar topic-has anyone here had a breast lift done?

I'm petrified of surgery, but my breasts are incredibly saggy after losing about 80 lbs. i went from a 38 DD to a 34 B/C. All of my breast tissue has lost it's elasticity and while I don't care about what size me breasts are, I'm really disheartened by how unappealing they look/feel now. I'm not looking for rock hard, porn star-style breasts, but a little lift/firming would be nice!!!

OP here, I don't mind the hijacking!!
I think you should go and just have a consultation at least.

Hoping to hear from women who have them ..... Thanks to those who have already posted.

To the 11:15 poster

I had a breast lift done last July for the same reason. The only difference is that mine weren't all that big to begin with, but the sagging was just ridiculous. It is honestly one of the best choices I've ever made - I am SO happy with the results. If you check out my blog and go back into the July/August archives, I posted a lot pre- and post-surgery.

big boobs here :P

Hi there :)
I had a BA done 3 years ago this May. I have never had any problems with mine and love them. I had a son and my boobs went flat (literally). I had the skin for a C but could only fill a B orA. So I had implants. Here are my surgery stats:
Placed under the muscle
Round/Smooth implants
went from A/B to D/DD
I'm 5'8" and weigh roughly 155. They fit my body perfectly and I would never go back.
I had the incision under the crease of my breasts. I asked my surgeon to make them "natural/tear drop" shape. I wanted a little droop in them so I didn't look like I had flying saucers on my chest lol. If you have any questions at all just ask!!
I was out of work for 2 weeks, had a little pain, but was prepared for it. I did TONS of research beforehand so I had no suprises. I can give you a list of items to have on hand to make sure your recovery is very smooth.

3 years later and my fiance loves them. You can feel the implant in some spots if you touch it just right, but it doesn't bother me. I have no problem with working out, running, lifting weights, etc. I can't lay on my stomach on hard floors, but I think thats true for big boobs period, fake or not. Overall, they aren't "perfect", but I love them.

The best piece of advice I can give is do not go into surgery expecting "perfect", only expect "better" and you will be happy.

Oh..and do all the exercises/squeezing that your doc tells you to do!! It WILL make a difference! :)

The problem with going into the surgery thinking you will emerge with "perfect Jessica Simpson" breasts is that YOUR breasts will never look like anyone else's. Each person reacts differently to breast implants, so going in with the mindset of "improvement", not "perfection" is very important. Otherwise you will inevitably be unhappy and will end up seeking out multiple surgeries trying to obtain "perfect" breasts.
