How fast after BA can I redo them?


I realize I may have gone too small- I wanted a B but didn't quite get it, and just had surgery a week ago. Will my boobs still change, grow? If not, how soon after this surgery can I have a re-do? No-one can even tell I had anything done, my doctor went with a 210 gel implant. Would it make a difference to go up to 250 that is worthwhile to have surgery again?

I waited four months, then switched mine out for a much larger size. It depends on the doctor and his recommedation. Normally the wait is three months. Good luck on your new boobs!
