There has never been a doubt in my mind that one day I would be getting a breast augmentation. I just didn't know when. I am now 21 years old and I have many years to mature and think on this decision. I have wanted them since I was 15. I am tired of buying push up bras and I hate being naked in front of others. I just had my 2nd consultation today and I think I have found the perf dr. Just... more
My surgery date is quickly approaching (one more week!), and the nerves are piling on! I have found this website very helpful in easing my anxiety. I am currently a 32C (at Victoria's secret) but actually more like a 32B. I am getting 370cc silicone implants under the muscle, incision under the breast, so I hope to be closer to a 32D.
My biggest concerns at this point are that they will look... more
I recently went on vacation with a group of girls to San Diego, and spent the entire time feeling bad about my breasts. This is not a new experience for me. I've wanted to get breast implants for well over a decade, and in fact a decade ago I had put down a deposit with a PS, but then things happened in my personal life and the surgery never happened. During this recent trip, I realized that... more
If you're thinking about breast augmentation surgery, then look no further because you have found the perfect surgeon. Dr. Peters is extremely knowledgable, has many years of experience and knows what you want even if you can't quite explain it yourself. She's professional, caring, careful and thorough. Compared to a dozen other surgeons I researched, Dr. Peters was the only one I found who... more
Just some photos for comparison and for others to follow my journey as promised!
In just 16 days I'm going in to get 350cc sub muscular HP breast aug! It's unreal how fast my date is approaching and it honestly doesn't seem real. Breast aug has been something I've discussed off and on for more than 6 years and I've finally decided why not... I'm working, I can afford this, I'm gonna do this... more
Hey guys! Like most women on here, i too am getting breast augmentation...Soon! This is something that i have wanted for many many years. I am 27 years old and come from a family of very small breasts. I have put so much thought into this especially now that i am married and the thought of having kids in the future almost made me wait to get them done. My breasts have always remained the same... more
Always being relatively flat-chested, my breasts completely deflated after weight loss and even after putting weight back on, I could barely fit into an A cup. I was so unhappy with how I looked without a bra on and didn't feel feminine. I was very hesitant to get breast augmentation, and it wasn't until after I met with Dr. Peters that I realized it was the right choice for me. Dr.Peters made... more
Yay! So excited for my Pre Op tomorrow! I will officially be picking my size!!! Having a bit of trouble convincing my husband that bigger is better ;) lol. He wants me to go with more natural look but I'm sorry... if I'm paying almost 6k on these girls i want them to look like it! Go big or go home right! I've been playing around at home with some rice sizers i made and im thinking maybe... more
Methods to Compensate
I have wanted fuller breasts since my junior high and high school days. I remember stuffing toilet paper in my bras in junior high and trying them on in front of a mirror just for fun. I felt ridiculous though and never left the house like that. In my early twenties my methods became more sophisticated, I upgraded to Take Outs. The medical grade silicone felt nice and... more
Well I tried fat transfer thru another PS and well it kind of took in one breast but not the other and, yes, you guessed it, it took in the breast that was slightly larger in the first place!! Of coarse! Why would that NOT happen to me. Anyway, I was happy to meet Dr. Sowder and explain my dilemma and listen to what she had to say about a fix. Not only was I substandard in the small... more
I knew at a very early age that I wanted a breast augmentation seeing as good ol mother nature forgot to check off the boobs box when she sent me through puberty. Finally this year, the stars aligned and I was able to get my surgery! I went from a 32a to a 34c and couldn't be happier, I can't wait to see the final result after my waiting period is over :)
Well I am one week post op and... more
I've been wanting breast augmentation for a very long time. The reason I waited until I was 27 years old is because I wanted to make sure my decision was thought through and for the right reasons. Many of my friends had their surgeries done when they were 18 years old, and made a rash decision without doing proper research. Some went to a shady doctor who did a poor job on their breasts.
Two word to describe Dr. Salemy is "skilled excellence". From the consultation to the surgery he took the time to asnwer my 500 questions. I was terrified and I wanted to make sure I knew all the risks and I wanted all the details. He never rushed me. He even took his time to talk with me at my 2nd consultation in between surgery. He really knows his stuff and he is confident and passionate... more
HI!! New to RealSelf. I recently found out that my family and i will be relocating to Japan in August. I have been considering a lift and implants since I stopped breastfeeding my youngest son about a year ago. upon finding out about the move, I decided to "shit or get off the pot." lol My husband was also in support of this. Im wondering if i even have enough time at this point to have the... more
Surgery date is set for 3/27. I'm 5'2" 130# am currently wearing A-B size. I'm 38 and had both of my kids by the time I was 22, so I've been living with deflated empty sacs of skin for too long! I always wear padded bras and am embarrassed by my chest. Finally going to do this and I'm excited not only for how I will look, but how I will feel.
Sore, but slightly less than... more
I was generally happy to begin with but wanted to feel "better than good." I went with 304cc (I'm 5' 4", 110lbs) so that was big enough for me. I was VERY happy with Dr. Peters' support through the whole process (and her nurse). I have been looking into this for years and have talked to many people so I was more prepared than some. She made sure I had all the information I could possibly need... more
I am almost 2 weeks post op and have been pretty bummed the last few days. I really wish I had gotten a bigger size and thought I would be so happy. I find myself trying to convince myself its not that much of a difference but I feel that it would have given me more "fullness" and "fluff". I've been reading a lot now after the fact and wish I had done so before. I was a 34 B before and my dr... more
I had my first child December 2009 and was done breastfeeding September 2010. I had my silicone breast augmentation surgery April 2011. I have Natrelle 15-371cc silicone implants with a periareolar incision. I healed very quickly and had no complications. I was barely sore for maybe a day or two then after that felt great. I have no numbness in my nipples either. I got pregnant again last year... more
I am 22 years old 5,3" and 115 pounds. I am having both rhinoplasty and breast augmentation done at the same time. I have been self conscious about my nose my whole life and I am so glad I finally get to do this. Also my breast size right now is a 34A and would like to be about a C or small D cup size. I went in for my consultation and got pictures taken of my nose and he edited them to what... more
I decided to get a breast augmentation after having my daughter and losing most of the volume and lift in my breasts. Dr. Park and his staff spent a lot of time walking me through all of my choices, explaining what to expect with the surgery and post op, and helped me choose the best size and shape implant for me. I went with the silicone, anatomical shaped implant and would tell anybody that... more
