6 months later still very pleased!!!!! New pics 2/12/13

Ok so I figured by me putting my story on here it...

Ok so I figured by me putting my story on here it can help or motivate someone just like it did me. I'm 19 yrs old 5'6'' and 155 pounds no kids yet. Growing up I always wanted boobies like my mother well as a sad dissapointment it would never happen bc hers are fake so I'm stuck in a 34 B until I convinced my dad to let me go through the procedure as my high school and college graduation gift. I graduate cosmetology school in 3 weeks. I'm using Dr. H in Birmingham a few of my friends have used him so I decided to go for a consultation. My consultation was July 13 and I was more than prepared I had a list of questions, pictures, paper and pen for notes but not prepared enough to hear that just getting implants wouldnt give me the look I wanted I have a slight touch of pitosis and since I don't have kids and I'm so young I shouldn't be sagging so much so he recommended getting a periareola lift with implants and the FDA would allow me to get silicone implants instead of saline so our price went from $3,000 to $6500 wow that's a lot more than my dad had intended to spend so between him my mom and my wonderful boyfriend they have all pitched in and paid for them. I go Aug. 8 for my lab work and my surgery is Aug. 22 I'm more than excited but nervous too. I'm going with 575 cc Dr. H said that with my anatomy and how much extra skin I have it wouldn't be to big I haven't decided where they will be placed but I will know everything come the 8th I will post pictures soon!!!!!!

Well it's been a week since I started my story on...

Well it's been a week since I started my story on real self I have a count the days down board on my wall at home reminding me I have 21 days left till my surgery I'm still super pumped and ready to do this so I can finally have my dream boobies. Although last week i Beacame a little nervous when my dad set up my app. The women over the phone said My down Payment would be $650 for the saline implants with the lift and when i went for my consultation we agreed on silicone and lift for $6500 and i have the sheet they gave me signed by the nurse and myself so is that a mess up on them and shouldnt i still be able to get the silicone and lift for only 6500 seeing on how thats what the doctor and i agreed on bc We paid the 6500 intending on getting the Lift and the silicone implants not real sure how that is going to work. Comments anyone, and I'm not really technology friendly so I had a great friend help me post pics. I forgot to mention that since February I have lost 40 pounds so Im slowly working on my dream body. I have so much to look forward too here in the next few weeks I graduate college next Saturday and then getting my dream breast. I would love comments, questions anything I love other opinions. So please feel free to ask or comment:)

Well I graduate cosmetology school this Saturday...

Well I graduate cosmetology school this Saturday the 11 th I'm so very excited I go Wednesday the 8 th for my lab work. I have 16 more days until I go under for my surgery. I'm not nervous about the pain by no means I get nervous and scared when I think about the results and that they will be even and not lopsided. I believe the results will look good bc Dr. H is awesome, I guess every women thinks like this, you don't realize how many emotions you undergo when going through a procedure until its actually you. I will update when I go for my lab work and give more details after I talk with my doc.

Well i went today for my lab work which didnt cost...

well i went today for my lab work which didnt cost me a dime, thats good. I didnt get to actually meet with dr. h today but thats ok bc i felt really comfortable talking with the nurse. She asked me all kinds of questions, things from years ago that i didnt remember, bc i have a heart condition she took an EKG scan of my heart and it came back super great so that was good news!!!! I had to give up smoking today but anything to have the boobies of my dreams. i still dont know what placement he is going to use but i will know the day of surgery which is kinda of scary but i guess finding out the day of wont give me anytime to freak out and chicken out of it. I have had many surgeries in the past on my ears and the one thing im scared of, for this one, is being sick when i wake up from being under im always so emotional and nausious, and loratabs make me sick so they are gonna give me some perkacets (oh and im a terrible speller so im sorry for the mispelled words) i have to go buy a sports bra tomorrow and multivitamins and some retainers for my nose and tragus piercings so they dont grow up, i have to get some button up loose pjs and footie sock...im so excited though!!!! i like the fact that the rooms the surgery will be held at is in the office building everything is boarrd certified and registered,and its only 30 minutes away from my house. the staff is so sweet and i only went in for my lab work and i was there 2 1/2 hrs just asking questions and getting them answered i was not at all rushed or uncomfortable. so far its been a wonderful journey!!!!

Well I have 9 more days until my surgery its just...

Well I have 9 more days until my surgery its just know starting to sink in that I'm really getting them I'm so excited. I'm not really nervous yet but I know ill be here in a week or so. I went and bought sports bras Pajamas, footie socks, piercing retainers, and multi vitamins. I just hope the sports bras are right, the nurse Said to get that the same size around but get the cup part a little loose. I bought 2 one, zips in the front and Is very durable. The other buckles in the front and is more flimbsy I guess you could say, I'm not sure as to which one to take to the surgery with me so I'm taking both. I've already packed my bag and I'm getting everything Ready for the big day.

Well as of tomorrow I will have 5 days left until...

Well as of tomorrow I will have 5 days left until my surgery. I'm getting more and more excited. I've done really good with not smokking, once you get thru the headaches it gets really easy. I've been having dreams that I've already had my surgery and they look really good in my dream so maybe that's a good sign. I'm really becoming obsessive with the whole boob thing I'm just ready for my big day!!!!

Ok so I thought I wouldn't freak out to bad but I...

Well todays the big day I'm so nervous and excited...

well todays the big day I'm so nervous and excited I took tylenol pm last night and I still woke up off and on through the night. I had some crazy dreams though like the office and waiting room was so packed and they skipped me. It was wild but I've taken a shower already I have my couch all clean and lysoled I have magazines water snacks manicure kit everything to keep me occupied. Im having some crazy emotions right now. Like I can not believe I'm about to do this. Well I'm about to load my stuff in the car

Ok well I've been home since around 12 but been...

Ok well I've been home since around 12 but been resting. Everything went well like everyone else says it feels like a hippo decided to park his big ol self on my chest. It's really tight feeling but I'm assuming its normal the ride home was painful I was still kinda out of it but I feel better compared to a few hours. I slept for about 2 1/2 hours when I got home. They took me back around 9 and I was discharged around 11 11:45 I went with 575ccs behind the muscel I got a periareola lift and he placed the implant through the lift incision so that will be my only scars I haven't really ate much just q few crackers bc my mouth is so dry but I will eat good for dinner I didn't know what hurt worst my arms or my chest my arms just feel restless plus the iv arm hurts anyways and the pre op med they gives you makes you day and do and feel crazy stuff my boyfriend videoed me when they gave me the first dose of it I was something serious. I'm glad its over bc I'm not gonna lie its uncomfortable but not not "oh my god kill me type of pain" but I will post pics soon as I can make it over to my friends house which she will be taking me to my first post op app. In the morning hopfully I can sleep good

Well its the first day after my surgery and I woke...

Well its the first day after my surgery and I woke up around 5 or so bc I had to pee so bad and my medicine had already worn off by then so I couldn't hardly get up off the couch my boyfriend had to help me go pee I took some of my pain mess and some phenergan to help me sleep I haven't taken any of my valium bc it says for muscle spasms but I can feel my chest wall hurting like those muscles so can I take one for that kind of pain? Anyways I woke up around 7:30 and watched tv until my girlfriend came and picked me up to take me for my first follow up. They took my bandages off and I have tape all over my nipples but they put some cream on my nipples and I have a strap that a wear around the very top of my breast to help make the implants drop. My boobs itch so bad though. I changed my bra today to another sports bra the more flimbsy one its a little more comfortable I'm just ready for some of the tightness to go away in my chest. I will be updating again tomorrow

Well its day 2 after surgery, I actually slept...

Well its day 2 after surgery, I actually slept pretty good last night. I woke up around 5ish and had to pee of course and I had no problem raising up by myself and there wasn't that much pain at all so I went and less and laid back down I took a pain pill bc the couch and my back and neck are starting to clash but I slept all the way until 8:30 this morning and once again I had to pee and I didn't have any trouble again raising up I still don't use lots of pressure on my arms but its getting easier. I took my first shower last night not shampooing my hair just letting water trickle down my breast and putting antibacterial soap on my shoulder and letting it run down my breast also. I don't have to sleep in the strap that doc gave me I wear it at all times except when going to bed. I took a valium last night before bed I was like tripping while I was asleep it was so weird, but I woke HP this morning and ate a bagel and drank a glass of sunny d and took all my antibiotics and vitamins and half a pain pill. I know I keep jumping back in forth from yesterdaay to today. My wonderful boyfriend washed all my covers and blankets I use on the couch and I have lysoled and germ x on deck everyrime before I sit or lay back down on my couch I spray it and anyone that comes to touch or hug me they get germ x'ed. Bacteria is no good friend of mine. I'm going to get carried to walmarts tonight to get some more sports bras and a button up shirt I can wear tomorrow night at the races I will not be doing anything but sitting and observing my daddy racing well I will update in a few hours

Oh and my boobies look so good I'm haPpy with my results so far. I have very little feeling in my nipples but my whole chest is still kinda numb so I hope more feeling comes back in my nipps....my boobs itch so so bad I wonder if its ok to put a little bit of lotion on them staying away from my incisions around my nipples

Well I've been resting up all day bc I knew that I...

Well I've been resting up all day bc I knew that I was goin to go shopping this afternoon just to get a few more sports bras and medicine bc I'm constipated and bloated. I bought an under armor sports bra that zips in the front XL in size DD support my chest is hurting like muscle wise so I guess that's where the valium comes in. It's like they keep surprising me everytime I look there bigger and prettier they just hurt but I'm enjoying them

Well I'm 4 days post op and I'm absolutly pleased...

Well I'm 4 days post op and I'm absolutly pleased with my new breast! I went out last night and my boobs began to sweat since we were outside and it would make them sting and it freaked me out so I came home and showered. My left breast has a little more pain than my right so I guess its normal its not an unbearable pain its just a muscle shooting pain now and again. There looking better and better everyday. There's some bruising along the bottom fold and on the nipples but nothing swrious. I drove for the first time last night which wasn't bad either. I'm really enjoys my new breast I'm becoming more fond of them and I can actually cup them in my hands now and hold them and I just giggle inside bc there just so pretty I can't wait to see them healed without this ugly brown tape on them.

Still post op day 4. I met up with a friend...

Still post op day 4. I met up with a friend earlier and had dinner and then went shopping but I have just about all my girlfriends convinced and picking out there ccs for there boob jobs! I'm starting to feel the muscle spasms now and there uncomfortable and the pain meds don't help it of course so I guess ill have to suck it up and take the valium. I only took half of it so we'll see how it goes. My left breast has less bruising but a bit more pain than my right. I've been rubbing palmers oil stuff on them twice a day avoiding the nipps. I have a touch screen camera and you can draw on the pics after they have been taken so I've been taken pics everyday keeping up with the progress and drawing on the pics what days what and pointing out bruises. I've alao been edifying in a journal everynight how I desk what they look like etc. Well ill update yall up tomorrow on post op 5.

So far so good tomorrow will be day 6 of my...

So far so good tomorrow will be day 6 of my recovery and all is good except the constipation, I took this laxitive stuff that is 99.9% mineral oil......blahhhh even though its tasteless, and odorless, it was the nastiest stuff I've ever tasted. So maybe ill be able to use the bathroom soon bc my belly is starting to stick out further than my DD boobies....hehe. I'm very thankful for my results bc my heart goes out to the women on here who don't get the results they want and go through complications. I haven't experienced any really bad bruising. What bruising I did encounter its now in that yellowish stage. Everday when I look at them I get tickled pink at how big, perky and pretty they are. To bad everyone doesn't walk around naked bc I love the way they look, maybe there's a nudest colony round here.......jk. I'm starting to come off the pain meds and I finished my last day of antibiotics. Yayyyyy, for happy healing. I'm really glad I quit smoking bc I'm planing on quiting for good. I actually feel a lot better. I need to convince the boyfriend to quit to bc it stinks terribly. I moved back in my bedroom today, since my recovery center was on the couch and my dad is a nit pick neat freak and he kicked me outta the living room, in a nice way. I missed my bedroom anyhow. I know my pic. Is of an auburn sign but that was just to keep me covert from the people that knew I was on here but since I have pretty boobs I no longer care.....ROLL TIDE!!!! so ready for the game. Can't wait to get a low cut Alabama tee that my boyfriend has no clue yet that he will buy my friday .....haha. I'm so glad I'm getting off this medicine bc it made me sad and grumpy....I'm better now if anyone can tell. I've been doing a little cleaning here and there, I bought new bathroom stuff for my bathroom and so I'm gonna do all that tonight. I still haven't had a shower so ill do that after I finish putting up my new stuff. That's my favorite time "shower time" I love the warm w
Water trickling over the girls and you don't have to worry about germs so you can just rub them and touch them. I'm pretty much back to normal now except the spasms that happen randomly. I'm so thankful I found this website and I'm thankful I was able to get the surgery and id do it all over again if I could but I have another 10 yrs before that. Well ill be updating soon!!!!!

OMG! THEY LOOK AMAZING!!! Especially only a few days post-op...they look like they're healing up so fast! I don't know what your doc recommends, but mine gave me permission to took take 50 mg Benedryl for the itching. I started to itch all over last night so I took some and it really did help. But wow, they really do look good.

From experience I'm telling you to go with ur gut and go smaller. I wish I'd have gone with my gut but I stayed with the bigger size I originally wanted and now I REALLY regret it :(

Thank you so much for the advice I really appreciate all the advice I can get I'm just nervous and have so many thoughts running through my head

If you aren't sure what you want to do yet I don't see a problem with rescheduling so you can fit another consultation in there. Your surgeon should be happy to meet with you as many times as you want prior to the surgery! I think you should be 100% comfortable with whatever choice you make, and your surgeon can help get you to the comfort level with expert advice. It is better to spend more $ on consultations than an additional surgery. And if you are still confused after that, see as many surgeons as you want! I saw 5 before I selected mine, and then saw my actual surgeon 4 times before the operation! She was happy to do it :)

Best of luck deciding!

Please let us know about your results. I am 19 years old and I have the same issue. I am 5'6 120lbs and my boobs were never perky. They sag a bit like yours and its made me so self conscious all my life. I honestly would not care to have A or negative double A boobs as long as they were perky.. Sadly enough they are not. I am looking to get a Boof lift also.

Congrats on the decision! I do not see that you need a lift!

I am very happy with my results.

I was so nervous my blood pressure went up the morning of surgery. It is normally quite low.... I was just so scared I would not get good results my BP went up. However the results are much better than I expected

Keep us posted as you prepare!
