Roll call!

Please post your first name, where you're from, your # of cc's and final size...or if you're pre-op, what size you are now, and what size you'd like to be augmented to.

I'll start...I'm Felicia from the Chicago suburbs, I have 600 cc's McGhan round textured implants placed under the muscle...I went from a tuberous A cup (barely) to a full, round D/DD.

I'm Jen, getting implants on Monday. I have fried eggs which look like an almost A cup, I am 5'5 and 123 pounds, 2 kids. All i know is that the implants are round and will be filled to 420-450 cc's. I am very scared, but so excited.

My name is Dana and I live in a suburb of San Francisco. 33 years old, married, with 2 children, ages 9 1/2 and 3 1/2. Stay at home mom with my own part-time consulting business, plus I just started selling clothes on ebay (more of a hobby at this point :-)

I have had two breast surgeries-- first time around, I got McGhann saline implants, under the muscle, armpit incision, 390cc, 32B to 32D. Second surgery-- Mentor high-profile silicone, under the muscle, crease incision, 500cc, 32D to 32DD (and overflowing in that DD bra, in fact I just ordered a 30E bra online to see if it might fit better!).

I am 5'5" 112 lbs! Just want to say that if you are thinking about getting a BA, go for it! Best money I have ever spent. I have yet to meet a woman who has regretted it and most are so darn happy we can't keep from smiling!!!! :-)

Hi, my name is Nelsy. I live near Philadelphia. My surgery is for April 21, the doctor has deceided on 375 cc's for me. I am a 32 A and I am hoping to be a 34 C or 32 D. I am only 110 lbs. So i'm hoping I look okay after the surgery. I have two kids which I breast fed both, so my skin has strected which is a good thing. I'm getting nervous about everything but I know the results in the end will be worth it.

I am 23 and had my BA on Feb 27 as a means of breast reconstruction. Had Mentor saline textured unders, 275cc on right and 300cc on left to create what we think will finally end up being a 34D. Not sure if I'd do it all over again, pretty rough. We'll see how I feel in another month or so.

Hi, my name is Melissa and I live in the Pittsburgh PA area. I have been thinking of getting implants for awhile now, but quite honestly, the surgery part really scares me! I was wondering if some of you that have had the surgery could let me know just how bad it was. Also, I don't know if I should go for the D size or maybe just a full C, since I am 5'5 and about 110. What do you all think? I appreciate all help!
