Upcoming Breast augmentation March 6th...

I am scheduled to have a breast augmentation next month and I feel alone. My husband is supportive but he's a man to him things are fine as is. I don't want to tell girlfriends for fear of being judged. I am extremely excited and happy to be doing this. I have wanted this for years. I breast fed years ago and that killed my breast. Only another woman that did this understands. I am 45 and have small deflated breasts. Appreciate hearing supportive thoughts from other women who made this decision.

Seriously, even if they stayed the way they are right now I would be thrilled. I am just so happy to finally wear the clothes I have always wanted too!

I am so glad you are happy with your result. Stinks that you had such a painful recovery though! I am feeling great! I had the opposite recovery than you did (sorry). I had very little pain and only took 3 pain pills. After day 5 I was back to business as usual (cleaning house, caring for the baby ect). I guess the extra $275 for the pain pump was worth it. I went bra shopping the other day and I am a 32D!!!!! Like you, they are big, but not wow big just nice big. I too feel it was so totally worth it. My left has dropped but not my right. Nobody else in the world can tell, but I can....I am sure they will even out.

I think my left might dropping a little faster than my right as well. Oh well, I just hope by summer or early Spring they are in great shape. ;)

OMG, Thanks for asking. I thought you might not be feeling well enough to email so I didn't want to bug you. So good to hear from you! :) I hope everything went well for you and that you love them? I LOVE mine. However, girl, painful recovery!! My PS does not like the pain pumps and so I figured no big deal, I'll have pain meds right? LMAO!!! For my first 3 days I felt like all my ribs had been broken!! It hurt to breath, move, etc. The oral pain meds which I don't think were strong enough for the procedure barely took the edge off. My husband was a Saint though. He catered to me like a new born. Settting his alram to wake up and give me my pain meds, etc. and he even slept in our spare room because I literally couldn't stand the bed to move!! After the 4th day I got the mummy wrap off and started to have slight improvement which has gradually and slowy gotten better each day. Yesterday was my first day without a heavy pain med and I did pretty good. Today thus far I feel pretty close to myself. But was it worth it??? 100%!! I love them. They are big but they fit me ok. It's like a whole new world. Now, tell all about your experience?

Sorry I missed this post, I checked over the weekend and something goofed and I didn't see it till I started to send you one to see how you were holding up. ;) "Holding up?" LOL that's a good for us. ;) Anyway, it is good to hear your process and well things are going. I love it that you are happy with your new ones. :) I just think this is the coolest thing. Thank goodness we live in these times and not back in the 1800's when you got what you were dwelt. LOL heck their bras were probably even teriable back then! Yes, I have 8 days left and I am doing the same thing this you did, getting nervious!! :) Is this really happening? Will my boobs look better? Will I go to sleep and not wake up? LOL, I'm a real Drama Queen. ;) It is really getting exciting and scary at heck all at the same time! I can't talk to anyone about it yet. I just don't want any negative energy prior to surgery.

It is 4:30 am I woke up starving. I don't know if they are settling, swollen. or what but my boobs look huge today : ) 12.5mg of phenegan and 1/2 of a percocet is a great combo. It is just enough to really relax me and help me sleep. I am not feeling very much pain, just tightness. It feels like I did 100 push ups then my milk came in. My biggest complaint is having to sleep propped up on my back, I am a tummy sleeper and it is killing my tailbone (which I have issues with due to breaking it when I was 8). You have less than 2 weeks, I bet you are getting really excited now! The recovery is not near as bad as I thought. We had our best friends over last night and it was great! I even held my son in my lap and fed him a bottle. I can't wait until tomorrow night when I get to take my pain pump out and take a shower! I so agree with you about the fake ones looking so much better. Only a plastic surgeon could give me the perfect boobs I have. Nobody with 4% body fat has perfect C boobs! Just doen't occur in nature : )

I know the feeling. I am a 28 year old mother of 2 (8 years and 5 months) I took an extended leave of absence from work for 18 months after the birth of my son. My husband owns a small property preservation company. We are not rich by any means and alot of people would really look down on us for this procedure. I have only told the few close friends that have known me forever and have know how much this has always bothered me. Everyone has been so great to me. I felt kind of gulity for my children not being able to be "me" for a couple of days for something elective. But, in the end this will make me a happier, more confident person and in turn a better mother. Plus, it give my hubby some one on one time with them...never a bad thing. You are doing the right thing. The only thing I would have done differently at this point is to have it done 10 years ago.

Kudos to you for doing it now. :) It truly is a personal thing. It has to mean allot to someone that doesn't live the life of the rich and famous to finally go through with it. And it does to me and it sounds like it did you as well. Honestly no one really understands unless they have been there. To me it's part of what makes me feel good about myself. I never started out with huge ones but they much better before I had my son years ago and breast fed. Now they are little and deflated. It's hurtful and when I take bathes and wear certain clothes I don't like what I see and how it makes me feel. Even a thousand dollar pushup bra with super padding to me still just feels like a lie. Now implants are not the real deal but I don't care what no body says, they are (GREAT)! Heck, most women would give anything to have them and men, please! Say what they want, they love them too. I mean really, they are better than real. Most women that are born with big boobs have football player shoulders and they sag to their knees by the time they are your age. Now on the other hand, put some "C"s on a small frame person like yourself. (Sizzling) ;) Plus like you said, I know my self confidence will be much improved. I have passed this opportunity up about three times because I would talk myself out of it but now, for money reasons, etc. but that isn't happening this round. That is why I was so proud that you went through with what size (YOU) wanted as well as going through with the surgery. Kudos to you!! I can not wait! I think this will help my self confidence by leaps and bounds plus it will make me feel more "lovey dovy". Hard to feel sexy when your show piece is on life support. :) LOL

There is seriously nothing to be anxious about! I am soooo surprised how well it went and how great I feel. I took my bra off and looked at them about 10 minutes ago...they are great! My left looks bigger than my right and my right looks higher than my left but I know that will all even out. I am also blue from neck to groin. Not bruising but whatever they used to clean me. None the less...I look like a smurf.

LOL This is great!! I am so glad I started chatting with you through this website. I really feel like I made a connection with someone that I can share this experience with. Like we talked about early on, there isn't exactly an influx women doing this all at the same time that I know personally to talk to about it. I have been super private in my work and close friends cause I know how catty women can be. I guess if I were rich or lived in Hollywood this would be the norm. Pitcure this, I am 45, work in a professional medical office setting with anal retentive researchers and co-workers. My husband is a police officer and my friends are mixture of just getting by folks and conservatives. My just getting by friends would think it was a waste of money and that I was being a snob, my conservative girlfriends have big boobs so they don't understand and WORK (LOL) they are going to freak!! LOL I have told three friends and they are ok but not supportive either way. But when anything gossip worthy comes up this place can get pretty nasty. So, all that being said, you have been the calm in my individual storm of the right to the persuit of happieness. :)LOL I am laughing because I know it's going to the talk for a while at my work, etc. afterward but I DON"T CARE. This is for me and I am can not wait! :) :)

I have boobs! I feel really great! Procedure went great, anethsia was great. I haven't really seen the results yet but from what I see, I am in love. I thought I would be in so much more pain than I am. I can even raise my arms above my head!

I wish my procedure would have been in the morning! I am so hungry I could eat my own arm! I guess it is a good distraction though ; )
