Help a newbie out?

Hello new friends! My name is Stacey, I will be 21 in a couple months, and I am (obviously, haha) considering breast augmentation. I have 34Aish breasts, though I can squeak by on 32B bras. According to my bathing suit this summer I have shrunk again, but I'm honestly too embarrassed to go get re-sized. My small and disproportionate size has always been a bit of a frustration and source of low self esteem (nothing fits right!), but I honestly never seriously considered breast aug until a couple months ago. I still have quite a few hesitations though...and I'm hoping I can get some help from others who either are going through what I am right now or who have already been-there-done-that. 1) MONEY. Wow, it's expensive! Is it really worth the $5,000+? I'm just thinking of alll the other things I could do with that much money and man, it makes it hard to think about spending that chunk of change on myself. 2) Pain. Is it as terrible as everyone makes it out to be? I realize that it's surgery and all surgeries come with some level of pain (I've had my fair share haha), but is it absolutely excruciating, or more of a twingy annoyance? 3) Is it worth it? What if I spend all that money and then hate them? What if they don't look right on me? What if they cause more medical issues? So many questions. No, I haven't been to a consult yet; I'm still trying to pick a surgeon. I was hoping that maybe some experience could help me out some before I go. Thanks so much in advance; I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Those are all fabulous questions to ask yourself before you do this. I haven't had breast aug myself, but from what I've read from others, the recovery seems to be more of an ache/pressure, and you do get nice pain meds to help you out with the discomfort. Everyone is different on the 'worth it' scale, but 92% of RealSelf members (as of this writing) consider breast aug to be worth it.

I would recommend you read Makenzie's review of her journey. It's very thorough and will give you a good idea of what to expect.
