So, I have finally made the decision to finally get a Breast Augmentation and a Breast Lift and I am beyond excited. After breastfeeding, losing over 75+lbs, I'm currently 100lbs less than my max weight, and the fact that I have tubular breasts, see here for more info on tubular breasts --> http://www.sanfranciscoplasticsurgeryblog.com/tubular-breasts-and-plastic-surgery-walnut-creek-san-francisco-east-bay-area/

my girls have been defeated...or deflated...nonetheless.. I decided to put a spring in their step, and get them upgraded. I literally have nothing except nipples. I run alot and I don't even need a sports bra. I just wear a compression tank and so I have a chest like a boy :( ..actually we were joking around one time and my husband said he had bigger breasts than me.. of course he retracted the statement and apologized profusely, but sadly it's true.

So, the reason I'm here is to get some input from those who have already gotten an augmentation or are thinking about getting an augmentation. Silicone or Saline?

I'm getting a submuscular implant, because I literally have no breast tissue..with either a moderate or a moderate + profile..

Thanks in advance!

I have saline, but will be switching to silicone soon. So clearly silicone :)

My mom had a double mastectomy earlier this year, she had silicon implants (I told her not to) put in during reconstruction surgery. Not even two months later one started leaking, she had to have it replaced last week.

Saline is safer

What made you choose silicone over saline?  Which profile did you choose?

Really!!  Do you have any issues with the rippling and/or sloshing I heard can happen?

ohh noo..I'm sorry to hear that!  How did she find out it was leaking?  Does she like the saline implants more?

1 mom liked this
She had a really hard spot on the side of her breast that was causing pain and got it checked... She had it replaced with another silicon implant (facepalm)
