    I just got some Inspira SCX's 12 days ago. Mine are big--615 and 650 cc respectively. They don't really feel heavy, but I've also had them in a compression bra since surgery. Mine will move a little bit as mine were placed prepectorally (above the muscle). I previously had anatomicals under the muscle that did not move, nor did they feel heavy.

    The SCX's feel softer to me than the 410's did. I think I will really like them once they settle in and the post-surg crap is done.

    Hope this helps.

    Smooth cohesive extra projection. It's the newest implant in the Inspira line up, and kind of hard to find anything on it online.

    Good luck!

    I have the Inspria TCX, textured round cohesive ...agree with VegGal, we seem to be two of the two who have them...sure more do, but as I am 13 days post-op have been spending a lot of time on the boards the past couple of weeks. I have 800 and I find it heavy and large...I had a TE expanded to 800, but this is larger. The TE was slightly smaller than my native breast, this is a 1 -2 cup sizes larger than my native breast...hope that is swelling that will go down. It also sits very high...or at least has a lot of upper pole projection, so the breast mound starts expanding 2 inches below my collar bone. Hope it settles southward a bit as there is no bra out there that can bring my native 56 y.o breast up to that height!

    My current guess is that I will be swapping this out for a smaller (700) and a smooth rather than textured Inspira SRX implant either at the winter holidays or next summer...TT

    kae - I also have Inspiras - I needed the extra projection since I was downsizing from Mentor rounds that were 200ccs larger - 650ccs to 445ccs. Mine are in a very natural position, and are the same volume as the breast tissue that was originally removed. I don't find them heavy, but I have also been reconstructed for a long time. I definitely notice a difference between these implants and the ones I had previously due to the significant difference in size.

    thanks ladies!

    Specialk, my PS deflated me

    to 280 ccs ( i pmd you about that) . so essentially,i only have my breast tissue left after mastextomy. he said he did not expand me. any tips on questions i should ask him on pre op? what aare projections? also, you think i could go to 300-350? breast tossue removed was 297 grams

    Have Natrelle Inspira cohesive SCX. Had my exchange recently. Very happy with them so far. Had double nipple sparing mastectomy.

    Today I had a professional bra fitting as requested by my PS. I am 29 days into my life with Inspira SCX's, 615 and 650 cc's. Much to my surprise, I am now a 32DDD! Pre-cancer I was wearing 34C. I'm not complaining as I am 5'11", so they look proportional. They are also becoming very soft and squishy...nothing like my 410's were.
