I am a 32, a mother of 2 boys, who has decided to take the step in getting implants. I had the honor and pleasure to breastfeed both boys until the age of one ( well the last son I stopped at like 13 or 14 months) but after the last go around of breastfeeding it left left me with a deflated A Now I have never really had much to began with and always contemplated breast augmentation, but really was always afraid of the unknown and thought it would be so expensive. I had a bff who recently had hers done and always said it was the best investment she has made. So, I decided to give it a try and resarch , research , research. I have a very loving and supportive hubby who advised he does not care either way and love me for me. He told me that I NEVER do anything for myself and this one time its okay to just do for me ( you know it hard when you have a family to just do for you)He has been very supportive and csring throughout this who process. He even drove me to my inital consultation which was over 2 hrs from my home. With the enocuragement of him and two other really supportive girlfriends I scheduled my surgery for March 30. I am so nervous. It was good to find a provider and staff who was willing to answer any question that I HAD and who was very professional and caring!! I AM so glad I found this website,b/c it helps calm me down and know thats its okay to do something for me for a change!! I have decided to get 400cc saline ..thank you all for sharing your stories
Well.. the surgery is coming up within the next...

( requirement for woman of child bering age to make sure youre not prego) then afterward got undressed, vitals, talked with the doctor about size, implant incision ( we decided to go through the belly button) and if I had any concerns or questions (marked me up during this time and pretty soon I was meeting with the CRNA and they were prepping me for my iv and my medicine. i was taken to the operating room and before I KNEW IT the mask was put on my face and I woke in the recovery room. The whole thing was really quick... I couldnt believe it was as quick as it was.. the nurses were calling my name telling me to wake up and I WAS SAYING " is this a dream, is it over already!" lol... ii went into the recovery room and preety soon was being wheeled to te car~ with my NEW GIRLS!! i Yay! The pain for me really wasnt bad at all. it feels like a alot of pressure on my chest area. ( since i went with the belly button icision I have like a bandage wrap around my stomach... I am required to wear a sports bra for two weeks so I GOT an underarmour ( it is great support so far)
the thing suggested by you all was great.
a travel pillow is a MUST!
pleanty of fluid (water and gatorade)
MEDICATION PRESCRIBED TO ME:.. valium, loratab, antibotics, and anti -nasuea medication ( have not had to use it thus far)
Also, I am required to walk around and take deep breaths ever couple hours ( due to blood clotting )
The nursing staff and everyone at the center was very nice,and caring ! Even though I only had one consultation this was the absolute best decision to go with this PS.
Well, if I CAN i will try to update again on tomorrow ( even though I HEARD this is the wrost day) so probably on Sunday... oh yes I went with 400cc and so far so good !!!
Any questions please ask me !! I will to post pictures later ..

38C/34D depending on the bra ( most are 38 c) I am happy with the feel of them and the size. Went for my last follow up the other day and the doctor told me they look good and to continue with wearing the sports bra at night and doing my massages everyday. I know its been a while, but I HAD to come on and let you all know that I am really please with the results and glad that I decided to go with my PS.
My Doctor: Christopher J. Schaffer, MD
The staff was very patient and professional. Anytime I called the office they were always willing to answer all questions I HAD. Everyone was very pleasant and had a smile on their face despite it being so early in the morning . The doctor was kind and showed genuine concern to make sure all my questions were answered ! If you are in the surrounding area, I would definitely recommend this practice as they were TOP NOTCH! Did not have to wait long at all. I was there by 6:30am and out on the road by 9:30am....
