I Want to Be a Real Girl! - Birmingham, AL

Hello! I'm 30 and have three children. I'm going for my consult Tuesday! So excited. I have been looking into getting boobs ever since I never got any in High School. Now that I have been married for 10 years and done having children thanks to the Ezsure, its finally time. So excited, did I mention that. I'm currently an AA, but wear a 36 A with some major padding. I was wondering though about the healing time and having young children. The boys are 7 and 6, but my little girl is 17 months. Any tips? I have plans to send her to our local daycare for the week after surgery and the boys to ride the bus to and from school as long as I can't pick her up and put her in her car seat! Any other tips would be so helpful!! Thanks a ton!!

Hello again! I had my consult yesterday! Went great. I scheduled for February 11th. Right around the corner! I want to do 375-400 cc's. I would like to be a good C. Not sure if i will go silicone or saline yet. Would love some insight. The dr thinks silicone, but i really hate to put that in my body. Do you really have replace it every 10 years? Who really goes and gets a MRI every 3 years? Having no insurance, not sure i want the added expense Saline might ripple, but since i have no boob now, will I care? Ahhh! Any insight would be wonderful. Thanks girls!

Today I booked my hotel, since surgery will be out of state for me :) My best friend called me yesterday and demanded to go with me. Which is so wonderful. The hubby now can stay home with all 3 kids. Saves him from missing work for 2 days to take me and lots of juggling of the kids. So excited she's going with me. Still keep waking up several times a night, worrying about saline or silicone ahhh rippling no rippling!! Just breath I keep telling myself.....

Today I received my pre-op papers in the mail. Wow, so much to ready and sign. Learned even more than I thought there was to know. Still very excited! To think this time next week and I will be the new me!!!

Ok! I called the office today to make sure they got my lab work and I paid for the rest of surgery. I'm excited and very nervous at the same time. I think my biggest mental issue is I just spent this much money on myself. I have never spent this much money in one lump sum either!! I keep telling myself to breath!!

Alrighty! My BA is Monday at 6:30 A.M. Very excited and starting to get scared of the surgery part and the waking up in pain. Just keep breathing.....

ALRIGHTY! Surgery was this a.m. I woke up in some pain. Just a lot of pressure! Once meds were in my system I was fine. Still doing great 9 hrs later. I love them. I did 400 cc's silicone medium profile, which should make me a good C cup. I will post pictures when I get home. Dr. Hedden and staff were amazing.

Sorry, it has taken so long for me to post. Day 1...

Sorry, it has taken so long for me to post. Day 1 after surgery not to bad. Woke up with a heavy feeling. Once pain meds were in system I was fine. I sat in a recliner most of the day with ice and a heating pad around my neck to cancel out the cold :). I woke up night 1 around 1 a.m. in really bad pain. Burning pain on my left breast. More meds and ice. I cried a bit, but I was fine once meds kicked in. I then set a alarm on my cell not to get behind on meds again. I also maybe slept 2 hrs total. Bad night! Day 2 went to Dr at 8 a.m. and everything looks great. Bruising is not to bad. I'm cleared to have my Best friend to drive me 3 hours back home. I was very nauseated. I ended up puking on the way home. I also slept the whole way if I wasn't puking :).My girlfriend met up with my hubby and he drove me home the rest of the way! I took a anti nausea pill once I got home and tried to sleep. Hubby had new firm pillows for me. I laid in bed propped up and smaller pillows under my arms. A heating pad around my neck and peas on my boobs. My day 4 I felt great. Stopped taking pain meds day 4 and 5. Day 6 (sat) all 3 kids home and hubby. Did way to much Saturday. Had to take over few things for my oldest son Banquet that night. Did way to much. I was in so much pain. Took meds when I got home. I even got up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and on my way back ran into my tall dresser! O! Did I cry! Hubby got me back in bed. I did not move Sunday and Monday called Dr. Office, they gave me more pain meds and more bed rest. They also wanted me to email them a picture of my Left Boob. Never taken a nude photo and now emailing it out! Felt a bit silly, but they wanted to make sure the dresser run in didn't cause a bleed. They thought it looked great. Today is day 8 and I can say I feel so much better! Still taking it easy, taking pain meds. Just my left one that hurts, The dresser really set me back and Saturday! I'm in love with my new girls! So, worth it! It was nice to catch my hubby checking me out last night to! I will post pictures soon!
