From A to C Cup ... Yay ... Will Finally Feel Complete - Adelaide, Australia

I have always been small chested, barely filled a B cup and often thought about one day, having a breast enlargement. Since breastfeeding my three children, I basically have nothing left ... well as described by my PS, "flat and empty". I have felt incomplete for about 18 months now and dreamed that one day, this time will come.

After attending two consults with my PM which included trying on sizes, I am booked in for my Breast Augmentation (+ repair umbilical hernia - where the belly button is an outie) in 3 weeks. Whoo hoo! I am so excited and driving my hubbie nuts I think.

I am having 335cc put in so hopefully they will not be too big as originally I told myself that I wanted to fill a C cup which is what 335cc will do but they feel huge. The one size down felt perfect when I tried it but being a B, I don't see the point of going through this procedure to be a B cup. Is this silly? I have to say I am a little scared about the whole sizing side of things - that is definitely the hardest bit.

Any advice would be great... :-)

2 weeks to go today! I have been watching what I eat and really trying to look after myself as I know after surgery, I wont be able to exercise for a while and fear boredom whilst at home = comfort food!

I can't believe only 6 more sleeps :-) I feel like a child at Christmas time. I have to start my meds on Sunday and had another read of info prior to operation and glad I'm not on any other medication as I probably would have forgotten - no medication 2 weeks prior to op. Also suggests a couple of vitamins to take a week before but I take a multi-vitamin anyway so should be ok. Urine test Monday, hope I dont forget to do it!

So excited for the big day.

Would like to add before and after pics... hope to soon.

Wish me luck......

So I had my operation 2 days ago and still...

So I had my operation 2 days ago and still pinching myself. I can't believe it has actually happened and I am very happy with the outcome. I am in a lot of pain though, totally underestimated how much pain I would have. I thought I would breeze through it for some reason but night time has been the hardest. I am normally a side-sleeper but I have had to sleep on my back which has been uncomfortable and getting up in the middle of the night to take more meds has been difficult. I tried getting up on my own the first night and ended up in tears I was in that much pain and my hubby jumped out of bed to help. I now wake him when I need to get up. I havent been able to do anything around the house, that has been hard. I am normally on my feet all the time, continually tidying etc but I have become a couch potato, watching the world go by ... so hard. Kinda funny I now have a round belly. Guess that's what no exercise does - any advice? Maybe I need to go on a water & salad diet for 6 weeks until I can exercise again!
I have posted before & after pics. I am so rapt with my results. I barely fit an A cup before so now I'm a full C. Very happy. I'm really looking forward to cleaning out my wardrobe and going shopping for new clothes and bras.
Will post another pic in a week

I am now 2 1/2 weeks post op and feeling great....

I am now 2 1/2 weeks post op and feeling great. Still sleeping with my post op bra on as I tried sleeping without but I woke up in the middle of the night in a lot of pain in my right breast. During the day I go braless sometimes depending on what I'm wearing but without the support, my breasts do start feeling a little uncomfortable, or I wear my post op bra or a wireless comfortable bra. I will get fitted for an underwire bra 3 months post op. I am pretty much back to normal with house duties, shopping etc but not vacuuming or sweeping yet. I also can't exercise for another 3 or 4 weeks so really excited to start jogging again.

I have posted another pic 2 1/2 weeks post op. Had my stitches taken out 1 week post op and the tape still hasn't come off. I see my PS next week so will see if he says to leave it or if he will take it off himself.

I love love love my new boobies but I have wondered if they have shrunk a little though .... I was told I would have no swelling but I do feel like they are smaller. Maybe I am just getting used to the size?? I sometimes look back on my "before" and "after" pic to compare and realise there is a huge difference. It's funny though and never thought I'd say this but if I was to do this again, I would consider going slightly larger. I was stressing about the whole sizing side of things and was panicking that I had chosen too large a size. But, I am not complaining and this is by far one of the best things I have ever done!! Would recommend this to anyone who is considering having a BA.
