Hi there everyone,
Gee how to start… Well a lot of people on here seem to give the bio first so here goes.
I’m 23, Australian, my current day job is in retail as a manager. I’m not terribly wealthy and my parents would be horrified if they knew I was gonna do this. But it’s purely for myself that the decision came about.
I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time. I’ve always been a very confident person except when it came to my body. I’ve never been happy with how I look. Especially my breasts and especially since i lost about 5kg. A lot of the weight came directly off my breasts and they have become a lot saggyer since. So the time has come to do something about it, I’ve saved all my pennys and it’s go time!
I’m booked in for my Breast Augmentation on the 4th of March 2013. With Tim Brown at the Tim Brown clinic in Melbourne.
Firstly I think this site is amazing! For me reading all the stories and looking at pictures people had put up on here helped me make my decision to get my augmentation, and so I’ve decided to share my experience and hopefully help some of you.
So for my first step I’d made appointments in a few places early last year. God it was the hardest thing calling around. Having to tell the person on the other side that I wanted a Breast Augmentation. I soon after found this site and was relieved to find that many other people felt the same as me :P
So I went to my first appointment with a guy that was a cosmetic surgeon. (Cosmetic surgeons are at uni for less time, but apparently have more time in the field, and Plastic surgeons go through the same qualifications as a doctor.). Unfortunately was really really weird. He got me to undress pretty much in front of him, no screens nothing.
He also didn’t have a lot of photo’s to show me. I had found better on the internet. I also had a little list of questions about what I thought I wanted (so useful to be prepared) and he pretty much didn’t answer any of them.
Needless to say I went away pretty unsure and disheartened… I was hoping and praying that the next one wasn’t gonna be like that.
It was a couple of weeks before my next appointment (they generally do take a while to get into) and after sooo much more research and worrying that all my surgeons would be like the first. I went to the Tim Brown clinic (he is a plastic surgeon). OMG soooo much more professional! Tim talked me through everything, answered all my questions, drew little diagrams about what we expected to achieve etc. I even had a nurse, Tracey helping me with getting dressed/undressed (behind a screen!) and trying on different implant sizes, she will be with me when I go under. She’s really lovely and it’s nice to know that I’m gonna be in safe hands.
So My specs are: round Gummy bear implants, no lift (I thought I would need one), I can’t remember the size.. but its just enough to give some fullness on my chest, I’ll let you know exactly sooner to the date lol.
And so a few days after I booked in!
Since then I’ve gone back to the clinic to double check my sizes and get my Fiances opinion. I was tossing up between a slightly smaller size and a slightly wider but bigger one. I have decided on the wider larger one, as this is the one that Tim suggested and their wasn’t much difference between the two. I hope they turn out the way I want them too!
I hope to have time to put more updates as I go along ?
