I was wondering if any chicks here have had any problems with their implants while they wake boarded??? I got mine done last March and started wakeboarding in July (I had been given the all clear to get back to full activity 3 months out of surgery.... mine are Gummy Silicone UNDERS)..... in August I fell weird in which my back edge caught and I twisted really hard to the left which sort of flung my left arm out really hard when I came to the abrupt stop when my edge caught. I tried to get back up on my board after that fall but I could tell I hurt something when I fell.

A couple weeks later I was still having some very minor aches in my left pec muscle. It didn't hurt all the time, mainly when I exercised and lifted weights. I told my surgeon and he said to rest my left arm for another 2 months, which I did. That of course brought me into winter time (I live in Chicago) so it was too cold to wakeboard anyways.

My question is if anyone else has hurt themselves in this fashion while wake boarding? Even though I was 5 months out from surgery is it possible I tore my pec muscle and I just keep re-hurting it every time I lift weights??? (It still hurts off and on to this day.... which is now 10 months since my surgery... and 5 months since I fell funny.....

Almost 14 hours now, and no "this thread is useless without pics" response. How disappointing.

My wife has the "unders" too. Never had an issue with wakeboarding or anything else. She did complain that early on that isolated chest exercises made for a weird feeling of the implant moving with the contraction of the pec muscle. It's pretty rare that she lifts weights on an iso routine, so it hasn't been an issue.

I also have breast implants and I had under the muscle and fell really hard while catching front edge one time. Hurt pec muscle pretty bad and implact rose and stayed high. Had surgery to correct and now I have over the muscle. No problems now. I decided to switch to over the muscle so my muscles would move more freely. If your really athletic sometimes this placement is better option. PM if you have questions.......

My wife has had them for 10yrs, no issues and she has fallen MANY times,hard hits,no issues. Get multiple opinions and exams. Noit all the docs are created equal or practice their craft with the same care and professionalism.

Hi there!

I'm a professional cable-wakeboarder and I'm thinking about getting implants (Plastic surgeons recommends unders). @Girls with implants: Do you feel a loss of strength? Can you do all tricks (invert-, spin-tricks, obstacle-tricks) as well as before?

I have them and can spin and flip. My only recommendation would to get over the muscle since you are athletic and use those pec/chest muscles alot especially with cable riding however under the muscle still works for athletics but just not for me! I tried both ways. Most body builders or women that work out alot usually go with overs. GOod Luck

The ER docs and sports trainers recommend R.I.C.E. for any traumatic (muscle) injury...that is Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.

The only thing that's worse than fake boobs is a thread about fake boobs with no pictures. Keep the stock ones!

On a serious note I did rie with a chick yesterday with implants. She doesn't go huge but she didn't seem to have any issues. I've seen some hard crashes and no issues breast related thus far.

All I can say is thank goodness for a life vest. It doesn't matter how hard I crash, the first thing I check is to make sure my boobs are still intact. The only discomfort I've experienced is a tight fitting vest, but in all honesty that's a VERY good thing.

I got mine done over 10 years ago...god, where does the time go? They really didn't feel like they were mine and a part of me for a good six months. I've been really lucky and have had ZERO problems with them. Mine are unders as well.

The way you describe the fall & the pain in the peck I would say you either tore, bruised / hurt the rotator connecting to the peck area. (I just realized this thread is a year old, nevermind)
