Finally BOOBS!!!!(: Coming December 5, 2013 - Charleston, WV

Hello, how are you all today. I'm 19 years old and...

Hello, how are you all today. I'm 19 years old and I have decided to get a breast augmentation. See when I was 8 I was diagnosed with cancer. I had all kinds of surgeries and a number of chemotherapy and radiation. And because of all of this I never developed any breast. I don't want to get them for anyone else but my self. I want to feel more feminine and right now I don't have that. My surgery date is December 5, 2013 and I'm super excited. I only have 17 days til my BA! But anyways just wanted to tell you guys a little bit about my story and why I decided to go with BA surgery!!(:

Nervous!

Well I'm extremely nervous. I have 16 days and it just hit me suddenly. I'm afraid that something's gonna go wrong.. I really like to see and hear all of y'all's experiences and they are really helping me get through this nervous stage. I'm also afraid that I am going to end up with dd and I only want a c. Well anyways I am just praying that I recover really good and they d&f fairly fast.
How exciting! An early Christmas present for yourself:)

I know I'm excited but very nervous. But then I think of all the major surgeries I've had and this is nothing. Just more pain then the rest. Lol. December 5th can't get here soon enough!!

Time will fly, it always does! I always read on here everyone seem the most nervous when they get into the surgery room but they wake up and it's done before they know it!

WOW!!!

Well my ex wanted to get back together with me and I told him that I made a decision to get a breast augmentation and he went off telling me I was only doing it for attention and that it's nasty and fake and no guy will ever want to be with me. And all of this.. :( way to make me feel awful. I'm doing this for me.. I found out I had cancer at 8 years old and I went through rounds and rounds and even more rounds of chemotherapy and then even more rounds of radiation and I also had a bone marrow transplant. And because of all of the head-to-toe radiation and all the doses of chemotherapy I never developed and I feel like less of a woman. I'm 19 I shouldn't be depressed with anything but I am because I know that even through the years my girls will never develop and that's not fair to me. I am doing it for me and for my life and happiness no one else's. Sorry girls just had to vent a little bit. But anyways girls will be here December 5th which is 15 days...(:
I can imagine this is much easier than going through surgeries related to cancer. I totally feel that same way, it's like you feel it's not really happening like its something uve wanted so bad that when its actually happening you don't really believe it is!

Women!!

I look around and see all of these women walkin around with really big boobs. It's sad. I'm super excited to have my own boobs. In the picture I just posted my size is the top and my sisters size is the bottom. As you can tell I can't even fill my own shirt. It's sucks because I have really pretty tops and can't wear them because my chest is too small. It just makes me more and more happy and excited to have boobs. I am counting down the days til December 5, 2013. No one will ever change my mind about getting this done. My family is supportive but everyone else in the world thinks I'm just gonna turn into some kind of bimbo. I went through school as the girl that never spoke unless she was spoken to and I was so afraid of being judged for my true self that I just stayed quiet and never spoke a word. I'm not gonna be like that anymore I'm not going to be embarrassed about getting a BA because my body won't do it itself. This is me. Think of me however you want. Judge me if you want. I don't care anymore.
Im having my surgery Dec 6 so nervious too! Wish you good luck:) and dont listen to people that dont support you!

I wish you good luck. And I hope you heal wonderfully. What are you going to be?

Family!(:

Well tomorrow I am getting my nieces (: I'm so happy. I'm glad I can spend some time with them before my surgery. I'm so anxious when I think about my surgery. I get on my sisters nerves when I talk about the new addition I'm adding to my life((: but I'm excited. I have 13 days left and I'm almost in the single digits!!(: well this is all for now I'm just gonna head downstairs. Thanks for all the love and support...
sweetie, all I can say is good for you! I think some men get threatened because they know you will be getting attention from other men after your BA, and they can't handle the competition. I am 47 and just had my first BA 5 weeks ago! I regret that I didn't do this when I was your age! Do this for your own self esteem, and don't let the haters get you down. Good luck! :)
Reply
Thank you so much. This really means a lot to me. How are you healing. Have you d&f at all? How was the pain.
Reply
I'm healing well! Yes, they have dropped. I was adamant with my PS that I didn't want them placed in up near my collarbones! Although they are big (400/425ccs silicone unders) they have a more natural look. The pain wasn't terrible. I was mostly worried that I would throw up from the pain meds, but I had a long discussion with the anesthesiologist, and she gave me lots of anti-nausea meds. Never felt even the slightest bit nauseated! :) So, if you're a barfer, make sure you talk to your anesthesiologist. After the surgery, the pain was really manageable. On day 3, I was only taking advil. Ice packs were great, and I had a heating pad - not for my boobs, but I would get back cramps and for a while it felt like I had a runner's stich in my abs. Between weeks 2 and 4, they felt really tight and hard (I could feel them against my ribs if I took a deep breath). At 5 weeks, most times I don't even know they are there. I'm sure time is just crawling by, waiting for your surgery day! But once you have had the surgery, time really flies. You will be great!

Less then 2 weeks!(:

I'm getting so nervous. It all seems so unreal. Does anyone have any advice about healing quicker or things I should get before my surgery? I would greatly appreciate all the help and advice I could get. Well anyways next week I have to get my blood work done before I can get my BA and honestly I'm super excited!! You girls have really helped me through a lot. And I really appreciate everything. Thank you girls!!(:
make sure you have shirts that button up the front for the first week. And I got a great gel ice pack that covered my whole chest from Walgreens. It was $30, but worth it - a bag of frozen peas smells gross when it thaws on your chest! ;) Pick up a few movies to watch, too. And I strongly suggest miralax, smooth move or some other laxative. From what I've read here, everyone gets constipated (and super bloated), which is never fun. Maybe take it the night you get home from your surgery - you don't want to wait until you really need it! ick! Also, make sure you have some regular over-the-counter pain meds (advil or Tylenol), for when you want to stop the heavy-duty meds (but not in addition to, especially if you're taking toradol). I found that after the 2nd day, I didn't need the narcotics, and after day 4 no more toradol, but my back hurt and my chest was sore (like an over-done workout), so Advil worked just fine. Everyone's tolerance is different. Honestly, the waiting was the hardest part for me. I hope the next 2 weeks fly by for you! :)

My Dr recommended taking Arnica and Bromelain before and after surgery. Should help with healing process. Also Vitamin A,C, K and Zinc are all recommended. Hope this helps.

Yes I feel you:) You should look around at the other reviews that talk a lot and post pics of what they bought for recovery I see a lot about one of those supportive pillows-like looks like a normal pillows with arms lol if that makes sense cheap sports bras from walmart and A laxative!

10 days!!!(:

I'm super ecstatic I'm so happy!! But I have a few questions for you girls. Is it okay to dye hair 5 days before surgery? And what should I do about my tongue piercing? I can't leave it out. Well anyone that can help me with these questions please do. I really need help!!(:

Sorry!!

Meant 11 days! Lol.
I dyed my hair 3 days before! As for the tongue piercing, that may be a problem with the tube they put down your throat - I'd call my PS about that one.

10 days 4 hours 35 minutes!

I have 10 days 4 hours and 35 minutes. It almost here!! I'm super excited. I don't think my family understands but this is a dream. I have dreams every night and they are fantastic. After my surgery I'm gonna get back into shape and I'm hoping to get a tan and everything. I'm just hoping everything works out and goes wonderfully!! Well off to bed!!
Wow I'm so excited for you!!! Please don't mind me being nosey, but I wanted to know for myself since you are young and I am young too. How are you paying for your BA? Did you apply for a loan? Because I know that you have to have a stable credit report to even qualify for loans, and being young my credit hardly exists. But I am currently working on it. My plan is to save as much money as possible till I'm 22 then take out a loan for the other half of the money I need and get a BA. I'm 18 so I have quite a while. I'm sorry if this is too personal but I really want to know how other people are doing this financially.

SINGLE DIGITS!!!

Welp we are in the single digits now!! 9 days 1 hour and 45 minutes! How exciting is that!! I'm super excited that in 1 week and 2 days I will be a new transformed self confident girl!!!(: oh goodness this is really happening!!(: I can't wait. But it's time for some sleep girls..

Calling doctor tomorrow am!!

I had called my drs office last week and talked to the nurse cause I had some questions. And I'm gonna have to go in cause she said that the ones that they wrote down was the 475 cc and I really don't know if that was right or not so I'm gonna go in and resize these. Cause I'm a small person I'm only 5'2 & 1/2 and I don't want dd ds!!!

Almost Time!

Alright y'all!! The time is just about here. I have my countdown going!! I'm not even nervous anymore. I am gonna go to the dr and resize cause when I called she said they wrote down 475 cc and that seems a little too big. Especially looking at all the pictures. But I'm super excited and it's so close. Less then 5 days. Thursday will be the big day and honestly I'm happy. I won't be picked on or feel like I'm less of a woman anymore. This feels fantastic. My dreams are coming true and it will be here in the blink of an eye.
QUESTION: Should I go in early? The nurse told me to be there by 6:30am but I think I might show up at 6:00am just to be on the safe side. I got all of my christmas shopping done thank god. But anyways I figure I'm gonna stay up all night Wednesday night so I can sleep all day.. I'm hoping I heal pretty fast and can start doing my everyday routines about a month afterwards! Oh just everyone pray for me and I'll make sure to put up some pictures in 4 1/2 days!!(: thanks for all the love and support y'all!! You've all really helped me get through this!!!(:
hope thst you are still well and healthy. good luck...

Blood work!!

I'm going to get blood work done tomorrow so I can get everything done. I'm so excited..(: only a few more days and I'll be waking up with breasts! (:

Oh Goodness!!(:

Well it's only a few days away. I've only got to wait 2 days sand the time will be here. I will post picture after I get out of surgery. Can't wait til I can share my experience with everyone! I'm a little nervous I'm not gonna lie but my joy takes over and I just can't stop thinking about December the 5th!! I get on my sister's nerve when I say something about them but I can't help it. I had to get my blood work done and they stuck me 3 times at first then had to call someone else in and she got it on the 1st try. I was stuck 4 times :( but anyways I just want to say thank you to all of you that I have read about and to everyone that has read my story it means a lot and has helped me so much through this pre op time! Thank you girls so much. I will update you all tomorrow.. (:
I just read your profile. Sending best wishes your way. I'm about a month (5 weeks tomm). It goes by pretty quickly, I'm not fully 100% yet, but getting there. You'll do great!

Out!!

Well I'm finally back home. Propped up in moms bed!(: in pain. And still drowsy! But instead of giving me a surgical bra they just wrapped it up in ace bandages! You can't see anything right now! :(
Hope you have an easy recovery!

Pain!

Well girls right now the pain is awful. I've been sleeping so I wouldn't feel it and I just took my pain med muscle relaxer and my antibiotic. I've been trying to walk around some but I keep hunching my back up. Ugh just not relaxing right now
I've been following your review! Congrats on surgery hope your pain subsides some! Have a great recovery sending speedy healing thoughts your way! Mines in 3days!

Post op: day 1

I'm post op day 1. I can't really sleep. I'm in a lot of pain. This ace bandage is so tight that it's hard to move! The dr didn't even give me a surgical bra Incase I had to leave the house. I can't use my arms at all because when I try to use them to push myself up it puts a great amount of pressure and pain in my chest. I knew I would hurt some but this is a lot of pain to endure for quite sometime. As soon as I change my bandages and gauss I'll take some picture. I didn't have a hard time breathing when I woke up from surgery which is a good thing. The only bad thing is they had a hard time getting my vitals. It's only 5 something in the morning and it's just been awful. Last night I took everything I was supposed to and it really didn't help that much. And with this ace bandage on I can't even see if they are too small or too big. Well anyways I guess it's time to try and sleep.
Bless your heart ( yes, I am from the South). I also had horrible pain for the first week or so. I know it's hard to pull your shoulders back but one night I had a dream I healed that way. Great boobs but I was hunched over so far nobody could see them! Weird dream, I know. So pick an activity you do everyday and slowly pull them back only at that time each day. I did that so I would remember to do it everyday and I didn't over do it by doing it too much. Another tip for when you can wear a post op bra...if the incesion is in the crease and it is irritated by the bra band, use a folded maxi pad between the band and your incesion to cushion and protect it. It's sterile and soft and it really helps a lot. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Congratulations! Hang in there with the pain. The tough part is just the first few days. I'm pretty sure there are some breasts under that ace bandage. :) You're going to have some amazing before and after photos. If you have a chance, check out greenolive. She also just got implants and would like some support!

So happy you (and me) are on the other side!! Pain is quite uncomfortable. :-/. Do you know how many cc's you ended up getting? Did you get Saline or Silicone.

Got to see!(:

I changed my bandages today and took a picture. They are still riding really high but they look really good. My pain is still awful. I hope to kick it of town! Lol. Well here's the after results. Post op day 2!
Wishing you a speedy recovery and a great result! Just take it easy and let your body heal. Congratulations!

Thank you so much. I've been in so much pain. I guess it's from him placing them under the muscle. I just hope and pray that by Friday I'm fine and don't have any pain. They are still high and really hard. I just pray to have a speedy recovery!

It's 2 o'clock in the morning!!!

Well it's 2am and I haven't been sleeping well at all. The first 2 nights I was waking up at 2:22am and tonight I woke up at like 12:30am. Why is it so hard for me to sleep all through the night. I just took all my medicine and I'm hoping it kicks in soon and I can sleep through the rest of the night. This pain is awful. It's not even my breast it's my arms/armpits!! Just keep me in y'all's prayers!(: and thanks for all the support!
I appreciated your posts. I too am having a BA because of medical complications during my youth. It was not cancer...and congratulations to you for your strength and healing!!!...but I was on prednisone for 5 years from age 1-5, which caused all kinds of terrible side-effects and I had to have 5 very intense surgeries (one was 8 and a 1/2 hrs long) to correct growth defects that the childhood meds caused. I am now doing/looking quite well, and feel that getting my BA is 'sealing the deal' on the childhood issues, making the final product what I was actually supposed to have to start with. Some get things the quick, natural way...others have to be strong and fight for what they believe in and for what they want. I too am so small that I don't fill even the smallest cup size...but will be joining ladies such as yourself, very soon...with fuller happier breasts. (-: Happy healing to you, and congratulations on everything! xo

Sore! :(

I've been extremely sore lately and I've also been really swollen and kinda numb!!! Is the numbness normal at all or should I talk to my dr about it! I was also wondering how long it takes the implants to fully drop. I've noticed that they have slightly dropped but not enough for the eye to see!! And one more question... How long should the pain in my muscles last? If anyone could help me it's greatly appreciated!!
Your comments about the disturbed sleep and pain are all familiar and commonplace. The first three to five days can challenge you the most. Implants riding high after surgery is normal....mine didn't settle down for about eight weeks. The hard part is over though!!!!! My best as you heal.

I've been following your review! I'm from Charleston too and have decided to get BA. I'm calling Dr. Wood tomorrow to schedule a consultation. I can't wait to see how you like yours once they've settled. Hope you have a speedy recovery! : )

Well today has been really good! No pain. Went to the dr today and they cut the stitches and gave me steri-strips! Yay. I'm healing like I'm supposed to. I'm so happy. The only time I ever have discomfort is in the mornings when I wake up from sleeping on my back but other then that no pain. I'm so pleased with the way everything looks! I'm happy happy happy!!! Can't wait to see the final product!!!
Glad you are feeling better today. Looking good too!

Hey girls.

Well I know I haven't been on in a few weeks but everything's been going very well. I don't have to wear the steri-strips anymore!!(: I have a dr appointment on February 14th lol way to keep up the love!(: anyways they are dropping and look absolutely wonderful. I feel amazing. My dr was great. I've not had one complication. Well here a a few pictures with bras and shirts!(:
Hi I just read all your posts and I'm so glad you shared your story cause I'm kind of in the same boat as you! I'm 18 with tiny AA cup boobies and I am having a breast augmentation in March!(: I wanted to ask if you had any thoughts after your surgery that maybe you would have liked to go bigger? I picked out 400cc implants but I'm worried I might wanna go bigger! I also have a very small frame I am only 5 ft and 95 pounds.
Reply
Honestly I love my size. I don't know exactly what I'm gonna be just yet but hopefully in a month they will be down where they need to be and I'll know exactly what I'll be!(: but my dr did 492cc in each. Honestly just becareful you don't want to look to out of wack!!(: but I can tell you trying to get up for the first week is going to be awful you will want to cry. But anyways I got 492cc and I'm 5 2 and 130 so like I said just be careful especially if you are wanting to look natural. I didn't have any boob greed but a lot of people do. And just trust your dr because my dr said that he would either fill them up more or take less then what I picked out just to make me look as natural as possible!!(: hope this helped if you have any questions just let me know. I hope I helped you in some way shape or form!!(:

Over A Month!!

Well I've hit the 1 month mark! I'm so happy. The breast augmentation was amazing and it changed my life. I used to feel like I was nothing because I was so insecure and now I feel so wonderful! I feel complete! Thank you dr wood!! He was amazing!!
