Were they saline? Or the older version silicone? This happened to two of my aunts as well with the older version silicone. One of my aunts lost sensitivity in one of her nipples after the second surgery. Did you have any ill effects or just swap them out? I am hoping these last 15-20 years.

Saline and had them replaced with saline. I never was sick, I had a capsule contraction and it ruptured one of them. I only had the first set for 5 years before it happened. They look and feel so much better now, I still massage them daily now so I can keep the pocket loose and avoid another rupture.

It's a lot more painful and more expensive for under the muscle and silicone but I LOVE THEM. Everything looks cute. I feel 100 times more feminine. I had never been bigger than an a cup and nothing ever fit right. I am 5'8 and am normally a 32dd. Currently I am a 34e/f because I am pregnant. Best money spent ever!
That is the cohesive gel.

They look more natural under the muscle but it is way easier to go over. But if you go over you can't nurse. I know many people who opted to go over since they had lots of loose skin from nursing. All you're doing is filling a pocket when you go over so recovery is relatively quick. When you go under they detach the muscle and reattach it. It is much more invasive.

What type of implant, under or over did mamas who did it get and how much did it cost? Where did you get it done? Did that include a lift?
I have saline, under the muscle, endoscopic implantation (through the armpit) I paid $6000.00 in January 2000.

I have a lot of loose skin. I'm thinking cohesive. Do you know if you could go under and havea lift or is best to go over in that situation?

You can do a partial over/under. Going entirely under the muscles is kind of rare. If you want more upper pole fullness (po rn * look) going completely over is how they achieve that look. There's a great forum I've been on for a while that has tons of info. If you want the name pm me

This exactly. If you co partial under it will give a more natural slope

Re: If you have had a breast enlargement

Hey! Just found these forums the other day - thought I'd chime in!

I got implants about 5 years ago. I'm a bigger girl (~150lbs, 5'2"), I was a 36A before and am now a 38C/D. I got 500cc's, silicone, over the muscle, under breast incision. My doctor did an amazing job (I had consults with a few different docs)! Nobody knows I have implants because they fit my body perfectly, look/feel real, etc. My surgery was $5,500 and was done in Winter Park, Florida. I healed very quickly, only took 3 days off work, no complications, you can't even see my incisions. I'd do it again in a second!!

I'm expecting my first baby in about a week (!!!), so fingers crossed breastfeeding goes smoothly!

Is your doctor pretty well known? I've always wanted to get implants but I have no idea where to go, but WP isn't too far from me. How can you still breastfeed? You can pm me too of that's easier.
