I'm 20 years old. I started having babies young. I got married when I was 16 and am still happily married with three beautiful children :) I nursed all three and am currently nursing an 8 month old. I started looking into breast augmentation because before I had children I was measured as a 34DD I can still wear that same size it never really changed while breastfeeding. But I've noticed my breasts are a little droopy now and have lost sooo much volume. :( Anyways I want to restore my youthful appearance and I want larger than before because I have a wide rib cage so I think it will look good. And I want a natural feel and appearance. I have read silicone is much more natural looking and feeling but I'm not 22. One dr. said I would qualify because I've nursed three babies. Idk if it's true it was online lol. But silicone also scares me I know its fda aprooved but I'm not sure that makes me feel %100 safe ha. Anyways I will try to keep you all posted I'm going to contune breastfeeding my last baby for a while and keep researching. we are leaking toward saline. My stats are 5'4 1/2 and in 132 lbs
waiting...bills bills bills
So hubby and I had a talk. Originally we were planning to do BA a couple month after I stopped nursing. Hopefully around February. Baby turns one in December. We have an expensive car payment with interest so we want to double it and pay our car of early before saving for a BA. Saving money in the long run. And this is our last baby so I figure I can nurse him for a year and a half and then wait two months before a consult. I already picked my PS and spoken with staff. So this puts us probably out to Nov 2015. I'm kind of bummed about this but know it will get us ahead quicker and before we spend almost 5 grand on boobs paying off something we need more seems more responsible. Hopefully if everyone is patient my review will help :) just have to wait a year :,,) bitter sweet
decisons. support. mommy make over?
Hubby and I talked. We are going to pay off our credit card debt which isn't very much and then pursue this journey. I haven't had a consultation yet but have spkoke with the staff where I'm planning on going and I know two patients personally so that helps. I'm considering getting a Minni or full tummy tuck as well as BA and want to have an umbilical hernia corrected as well. My tummy isn't horrible but there is muscle separation and loose skin. Im hoping to hear more from real self ladies than I have. Thanks for reading ;)
emotional flip flopping
I really expected for my review to sound different lol. Its funny what you put on Here once u actually start writing. I could really use some support from other real self ladies. Those closest to me aren't very supportive of plastic surgery and I understand it. But it does make this journey a little tuffer. One minute I'm all for doing this and then the next I feel stupid and vein and selfish. :( I'm a Christian so I'm also not sure if maybe this is wrong? My husband and I talked about it and he reassured me. Ya know I'm not doing this for the world to see my body. But it's for us and my confidence as a young woman. I still feel kind of silly or ridiculous about it. But I'm tired of feeling like I don't look my age with my body and I want to be confident with myself. Even though I want to go quite a bit larger I'm hoping I can hide them if I want to lol I don't want people to for sure tell I've got them done. I got to thinking...is this really that much different than dying our hair every few weeks or going tanning or painting.our nails buying clothes etc. I think each human being deserves to feel beautiful and I shouldn't be so quick to judge others for their actions for whatever their reasonings are for doing whatever they r doing. I will worry about me and my own intentions. I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we don't NEED these procedures to be beautiful. But it sure would make me feel confident to look in the mirror and feel like I look 20 again ;) I'm so blessed to have my babies I'd never trade them for the world. But I'm only going to be 20 once. I don't need to party or go nuts that's not what I'm saying but I'd at least like to be comfortable iny own skin even if its plastic surgery altered. And that's my thoughts for today. Hope to hear from you soon fellow real selfers
I think those closest to me are done hearing about plastic surgery. The only one who supports getting it done is my husband. But I think even he might be tired of hearing about it. He is for my mommy make over or for me not doing it. He likes toned up tummies and big breasts but he loves me for me. So with that being said I'm kind of chickening out a bit. I want fuller breasts and no more loose skin but I've been reading real self horror stories and I just don't want to spend thousands of dollars and still be unhappy. Is this all just too cracked up? Is the media and peers pressing too hard that we need to look a certain way? I just don't know
need a buddy.
Just when I start to get excited about the. Mommy makeover I try to councle with family and end up discouraged. They are very down to earth and find this all superficial, stupid, and down right not worth it. I have to admit being raised this way I do agree to some extent. I I don't want or need this for the world but how selfish to want it for just me. But I still want it. I want to be happy with who I am inside and out. I'm not someone who hates themselves I think surgical enhancement would make me happy. I'm not striving for perfection. But better than what I have. I'm not hidious or perfect. Just an imperfect mom wanting to match outside to inside. No one else needs to see it or know about it. Its for me and my husband. But here on real self I feel a bit safer and hope to help other ladies after I get through this journey , in one piece! I just wish I could get a little more feed back. I feel odd posting pics but when i see them on reviews it really helps. I'll see about posting naked ones. Might be after surgery I'll do before's and after's. Or private message. Again stats are 133 lbs 5'4 1/2 waist 31 bust 38 1/2 hips 36
Thank you so much real self girls! It feels so good to read all of these encouraging comments from.people who knows exactly what I'm going through :)
