Super Excited About My New Boobs :) - Birmingham, AL

I'm 5'2 130lbs currently a 32A. I have always had a nice shape, small waist 23and hips 39 and a nice butt ????but I have never had any boobs and I've always felt like I wasn't proportioned correctly. The thought of having implants never occurred to me, I am married and have 4 children 13, 10, 8 and 4 so financially it seemed like it would be a financial burden. Anyway so last week my husband bought me a gown from vs I frowned when he gave it to me, I told him how I felt about my boobs and he said why don't you just buy some... I was like we can't afford it, he asked how much they would cost and I told him probably about 7k I didn't know. He said ok, make an appointment. And that's what I did...just last week! My consultation is with Dr. Hedden in Alabama next Tuesday the 3rd.

Twas the nite before consult lol :)

Ok so its the night before my consultation, I'm excited and a little nervous. We live in MS and we're going to drive to AL tomorrow for my consult. its about a 3 1/2 hour drive. Hubby didn't want to do the skype thing, we wanted to see Hedden and the facility in person.. get the feel you know. I cant wait to talk to Hedden about size and try on the actual sizers, I've made the rice sizers and 600cc looks good on me :) also 40Lovin40 has 550cc and they look great on her!!! We're about the same in frame. I think I want HP silicone. Well anywho I'll do another update after my appt. and I'll also be uploading before pics and also pics with some different sizers on. Thanks for al the support!

Consultation turned into Pre-Op :)

Super tired so quick update. Went to consultation arrived an hour early by accident, waited in the lobby only about 15 mins before being called to the back. Everyone I encountered were professional and friendly. Tried on sizers for about 10-15 mins then Hedden arrived in room, he's very professional, personable and gives it to you straight. He said my chest was too small to go as big as I had planned, but that he would get me as big as my body would allow. He also said I have a mild case of tubular breast and that it was a good chance of me bottoming out as my left breast sits higher than my right and he would have to lower my crease. Also stated that I have thin skin and he recommended I go with the silicone implants, he said profile would be decided during surgery. Went ahead and paid deposit and they did my blood work today since my surgery is sceduled for 10/10/13...one less thing for me to have to do :)

Still Waiting......

Ughh the wait is killing me! There's only so much cleaning, working, researching and planning a person can do! I' m going crazy!!! Ok my ranting is over lol :) But seriously I've been trying to keep myself busy hoping time will fly..not working. I still haven't decided what size implants to go with, thinking between 425, 475, and 500. I have googled my eyes out trying to find someone with my measurements to give me an idea of how I would look in different sizes..hard. I'm 5'2 125lbs measurements 30-28-39 definately not the best measurements small up top and wide on the bottom. The boobs are going to be a great addition to the hips and butt that I already have ;-) Guess that'll motivate me to do some crunches and get my waist back in line cause lately I've just been feeling like blah. Ok so ladys help me out if you or another lady you know is about my size let me know so I can check out your boobs :-)

3 DPO

Hi ladies sorry to keep you all waiting. Ok so it arrived at the facility at 9:50am I was given some papers to fill out and my husband was given a form to fill out for being my care giver.
Was called to the back about an hour later, tried on some sizers because I was still a little undecided on size. Then Kevin came in and started my iv he was great, the next thing I know I was awake and being offered Gatorade and crackers by my sweet nurse lol! The end result is 450cc HP Silicone.

Give it time. I have seen boobs change drastically over weeks/ months

If there's anything I've learned and didn't expect from having my ba, it was the "boobie blues". I think even though you go into knowing that its 6 months to get the final result, when you finally are the one going through it, you're not at all prepare for what you are up against as far as the waiting game. Mine are 4 weeks old and still uneven and such, but everyone has told me to just wait it out and they will work out great. So I guess I'll pass that along to you. I got very depressed after mine for a few weeks and I can't even tell you why. It wasnt just they way they look, it was the whole thing. I'm starting to come out of the funk now, but it was crazy because I'm not some who lets myself get down. Just keep your head up. I think they look great and will continue to improve.

So happy for you! Pls post pictures! I am considering hedden or Schaffer. It hey said I will need a lift
  • Reply
Dr Schaffer does an excellent lift around the areola- my scars are barely ( I mean really BARELY) visible. Also, he is very gentle in his technique- I had one teeny bruise and hardly any swelling. In 20 days it'll be a year and I'm so happy I chose him. He gave me my lift and implants with scars that are almost gone now. I love his work! He did my TT about 12 weeks ago too.

Good luck girl! If your procedure is 4000. What amount deposit did he require you leave?

It is so nice that you have such a supportive husband!! My girlfriend and I will be traveling to Dr Hedden for her breast aug when she turns 40. His prices are affordable(relatively speaking) and he is a great surgeon from what I have read. Best wishes to you!

Cool!!! Thats soo great!! :)

How'd it go? (Btw, I'm about 5' tall and just got my 32As made into 32Cs. For me, it was only about 280ccs that were required - I think the number of ccs is really dependent on your frame and your breasts, so don't let the numbers sway you too much!)

Thanks so much real self members have really been my greatest resource. I like reading about real life experiences and seeing real photos without any editing. I trust what I see on real self over what I see on the Dr. Website, I dont think they're going to post pictures of less than perfect BA's. Theyre only going to show their best work... I won't to see them all, the good, the bad and the ugly. Let me be the judge!
