Hi everyone, this is my first post on this forum, so I am hoping that everyone will be supportive and not judgmental and nasty. Anyways,  I am soon to be 23, married and no plans of kids in the near future.  I have my surgery scheduled for next month (silicone-unders, hoping to go from 32b-full c/small d) and am excited, but nervous.  The sad part is i am mostly nervous due to the telling my family aspect, rather than the usual worries of pain and complications.  Don't get me wrong,  I am worried about those things, too.  I just don't know how to go about it and don't want to blatantly tell everyone, but at the same time I am sure they will all notice & I do not want to lie.  Both of our families are very judgmental.  I know my family things that any unnecessary cosmetic surgery is done "to impress people" or for people who "lack self esteem".  Neither of those are true.  It's for ME.  Also, my main frustration is that I am an adult & not asking for anyone to pay for it.  I wish I had the mind-state to be like F it, who cares.  SOOOO, anyone who has been here or is going through the same thing i'd love to hear from you.  Thanks in advance ladies!!! :)
