Re: Expander fills

It's all part of the healing process. Usually they expand you 25% bigger than the final implant. I agree that a C is probably too large for you. Depending on how well you tollerate the fills you might get them weekly or bi-weekly. 60CC's or less also depending on how well you skin reacts to the expanding. If it is very uncomfortable make sure to speak up and let the Dr know. They can tailor these fills to your comfort level. My Dr waits 6 weeks after the last fill to place my implant as I have thin skin that has been difficult to work with.
Best of luck to you
