Do you know what it's like to wake up in the morning and love the body you're in? Not many women do. There's always something - muffin tops, cellulite, saddlebags. In my case, it was breasts that didn't look as young and full of life as the rest of me. As a runner, my belly wasn't the only thing flat on my body. Training for a marathon, I went from a full C to a modest B, and I mean modest. In the back of my mind, I fantasized about plastic surgery but never thought I was the type to do it. So I stocked up on Victoria's Secret's Miracle bras to increase my bust two cup sizes, back where I belong. Plastic surgery stayed in the back of my mind. Finally I just said to myself, you know what? Life is short, I work hard, and I deserve to get a breast augmentation. The day of my surgery, I was nervous but excited. I had no idea just how amazing and beautiful Dr. Wiener's work is. I woke up from the anesthesia and peeked at the large mounds on my chest, trying not to get too excited or move too much. I was surprised at how great I felt afterward. Before the surgery, I thought I would be bedridden and miserable for a week. But the same day I had surgery, I went walking with my husband to get ice cream at the end of the street. I wanted to celebrate! I took the next day, Friday, off and had a relatively relaxing weekend. I decided to take that Monday off, just to heal one more day, but I was eager to show off my new assets to my girlfriends at work. I must have spent 30 minutes trying on clothes and standing in the mirror smiling at my reflection. I went to work Tuesday. They were surprised I came back to work so fast. They asked me how I felt and I responded with a smile, "Busty." I didn't have any problems working - I just asked for help if I had to lift anything. It's been more than a month since my surgery, and everything is healing beautifully. I am so happy I made this beautiful decision for myself. It has boosted my confidence tremendously and now I realize that I deserve to feel beautiful and happy with the way I look. Dr. Wiener is an artist- just let the before and after pictures speak for themselves. I give him the highest recommendation for his good nature, talent and expertise.

Hey, what size/implant did you end up with? Also, how long did the dr tell you before you can head back to the gym/running. You look great, btw!

I went with 475ccs. I also went with a "high-profile" silicone implant. So I picked an implant with more projection. I would have a totally different look and feel if I had gone with saline implants. As far as the exercise, he gave me the ok to start jogging at 7 weeks. Thank you for your message!
Congrats and thanks for sharing. They look awesome!
