My New Boobies Diary!! - Chicago, IL

I'm a 24 year old single hair stylist. I have never been 100% happy with the shape/size of my breasts. I came to the conclusion that my body would look completely proportionate if I got breast implants. I'm 5'4 123 pounds with a small 32b. I made my appointment for Friday may 11th. 3 weeks from now!!! I am very nervous but excited for my new boobies. I have been put under anesthesia 2 times already but the whole operation aspect really freaks me out still. I have been reading countless reviews on this website that have been very helpful and have somewhat put me at ease. That's why I decided to start my own boobie diary so hopefully I can be help to someone like me one day :) very very nervous but can't wait.

Ok so I switched the date for my surgery! 8days sooner than I had originally planned....I have my pre op Thursday! This is all happening so fast, I'm extremely nervous but I have a feeling the anxiety is worse than the actual procedure. This surgery is all that has been on my mind! I just can't wait for it to be done and over with. After next thursday, its all down hill from there

Ok 8 days til surgery and I have to say I'm...

Ok 8 days til surgery and I have to say I'm feeling a lil better today. Mentally trying to prepare myself for this ;) i have my pre op tomorrow and I have a lot of questions to ask my ps. I have a feeling the next week is gonna fly by! After my pre op theres so much to do! Make sure all my laundry is done, bills are paid, buy movies n magazines, get some sports bras, get my meds filled, make sure there's gas in my car, and I'm sure there's more. I talked to an old friend from high school yesterday. She has had her breasts done twice already! She really helped me a lot at puttin my mind at ease. I just keep telling myself that I'm gonna be in and out of surgery before I know it.

This has been a crazy emotional roller coaster....

This has been a crazy emotional roller coaster. Yesterday and the day before I was ok and today I'm nervous!! Can't believe my surgery is only 5 days away! Anxiety is at it's High point today and I just want this over with so I can say "finally! I did it! And it's all over with!" friends and family have helped put me at ease but it's still nerve wrecking because this surgery isn't mandatory! I know I will be soo happy with my results just anxious today!

So tomorrow is thie BIG day! I haven't been able...

So tomorrow is thie BIG day! I haven't been able to sleep very well the past couple nights. I cried this morning because of how nervous I am. Like I've said before I'm sure the anxiety is the worst part. One of the nurses called me to tell me to be there at 830 am tomorrow. She doesn't work tomorrow but said she's gonna come in fir me and shell be there right when I wake up. She is so sweet. She has been a big help to me with keeping me calm. Her daughter is 19 and just had BA and the nurse herself has been on the table a few times. I can't believe it, this time tomorrow I'll be recovering!! This is so surreal to me right now!

So yesterday was the big day! I had to be at the...

So yesterday was the big day! I had to be at the ps office at 830 am. I started crying when I was signing the paperwork. I was so scared that I wasn't even excited anymore. They started my IV my doc came in to draw on me then I walked to the operating room. I layed on the table and started talking to the nurse and because I was so freaked out I think the anesthesiologist just slipped me stuff without me knowing. The next thing I knew I was waking up in the recovery room. The nurses were very helpful. They finally called my mom back and she helped me get dressed. I sat in the wheelchair and was on my way home. I called my best friend and dad and totally forgot I talked to them haha. I asked my mom if she called them for me and she said I already talked to them. Those drugs work wonders. I wasn't in pain when I woke up just kind of like "what just happened??" I got home n layed around for the rest of the day. I made sure to take my meds throughout the night so I didn't wake up in pain. Well it's day 2 and today hasnt been the most comfortable. I was in a lot of pain til my meds kicked in. Getting up is the hardest. Sleeping sitting up isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I am a constant tummy sleeper. I just wanna say to everyone considering BA that it is not that bad!!! Day 2 is the worse than surgery day. I don't know why I got myself so worked up. It all happened so fast.so thankful for my mom. She has been so helpful to me ;)
