he assurred me 300s would increase me 2 cups

Post by hackamore on 20th August 2009, 11:10 am

Hi,

but... then he arbitrarily changed from the agreed 300s to 275s (salines) with a moderate PLUS profile... i.e. a small base... and I'd stated I wanted more "fullness" too.

I find out after surgery (when he didn't fill as much as he said he was going to either) I find that the average volume to increase 1 cup is 189ml, 2 cups would be 378 (per side) and he only filled to 330ml... that is to say I'm 96ml short of the average required for a 2 cup increase (which isn't the same as going up 2 cup sizes).

they do look nice...

but not as big as I told him I wanted...

there's published data that he should be familiar with (the 189ml/cup increase)...

at 5 weeks post surgery while I started at band size + 2.5" (a middle B) and SHOULD be band + 4.5 (or more to allow for the last of the swelling) I'm more like band + 4.25...

a quarter of a cup short... and ALL fullness "short" thanks to the use of the small base "moderate plus" profile implant to get a vague chance at a 2 cup increase.

so what should I do... I'm in the US... the land of the lawsuit...

at a level it's "just" 1/4"...

but then if he hadn't changed the implant volume DOWN 2 different ways it WOULD have made target (at least on cup increase, he should have recommended 325s with a moderate profile to get the fullness AND the 2 cup increase).

Sorry about your trouble, but this may be something which is more relevant to an American clientele. The sizing system, kinds of implants and types of procedure are very different here.

It will vary from person to person, I'm sure, but most of the ladies on this forum find they get rather more than 2 cup sizes (in British measurement) with that size of implant.

I myself went from a 34aa to a 34 D with 280 anatomicals.

It's very different over there. The thing is, becasue the techniques and sizing is different from country to country it's so hard to tell what you may end up. And saline is so different to silicone.

ok...

so post surgery, post swelling your measurement over your nipples was 2" MORE (or in the case of the person who went from aa to d 4") than the measurement before?

one thing I have noted is there seem to be a lot more "overs" in the UK. in the US it seems to be mainly unders or partial unders.

It is because saline implants cannot really go in front of the muscle. Too much visibility and rippling, especially after they begin to deflate.

The next time we're in the UK we're going to HAVE to go to a lingierie shop.

by US measurements you'd have started a skinny 29D (slim ribcage) and end a 29H! and that just can't be right Give You

29? I've never heard of 29 on any US forums, if Annie is a 34D UK size, then she would be a 34C in US size :dunno:

Hi,

in the US the diameter in inches IMMEDIATELY below the breast in the band size.

and the diameterovernipples-bandsize=cup

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

it's true that "odd" number sizing isn't common so I've never seen a "29" either.

I used to order bras pre-BA from the US and a 34C would fit me the same as a UK 34C size. I think they change when you start getting into the bigger sizes like D cups etc.

You have to add a number of inches to your underbreast measurement to get the correct band size. You add 4ins. if the measurement obtained is an even number of inches, or add 5ins. if the measurement obtained is an odd number of inches ( so it would be a 34 band size if you measured 29).
