I had hated my breasts since puberty. They always seemed 'wrong' to me. I tried to love them (many trips to 007b.com), but I'd slowly been getting more and more depressed about my situation. Although I was successful scholastically, worked out and ate correctly, volunteered my free time to good causes, and had a job that I loved, I still felt as though I was not enough. I had not been fully naked around the love of my life for around 9 months because I was so ashamed of my body.
I am only 2 days post-op, but I feel so much better already. My recovery has been uneventful and the pain has been minimal. My new breasts are so cute! I know that I have a little swelling still, but other than that, I feel great. I got everything that I could have wished for from my starting point, and I would recommend this surgery to anybody (provided you do your research on your surgeon). The journey was terrifying at the time, but I now know that there was nothing to be scared of. I am so thankful that I can begin my post-college life with a body that does not make me sad. It was worth it, and I can't wait until I'm fully healed.
