I have always been a confident person. I have a wonderful family that loves me and has helped build me up and have given me that confidence. However, since I was a young teenager my breast have always been something I have pinned over. I compared myself to other girls and dreamed of having bigger breast. I meet my husband when we where very young, 16/17. We were married at 22/23. He has always been very supportive and loves me just the way I am, but, he knows the struggles I feel internally when it comes to the size of my breasts. I am now 33 years old two children later and not planning to have any more. This is my time to finally get my bigger boobs!!!
I researched my doc, was recommended by some friends of friends and had two separate consultations with him. I feel he is the best doc that will give me the results I want.
My surgery date is aug 22 once we made the decision to do it I scheduled surgery right away. I had my pre-op yesterday and surgery is less than a week away.
Currently I am a 34 A I am looking to be a D, a small D. Im 112 lbs. 5’8. I feel a C cup will be fine but I dont want to go through this big change and have surgery to still be in the back of my mind wish I went bigger. Because Im tall and thin I feel I can pull off a D cup, and look great without looking to much like a porn star ;-)
I came to the decision of a D cup by going to Target getting a C up bra that I would normally buy, and the same bra in a D cup. I tried both of them on (stuffed of course) put my regular t shirt back on and evaluated my results. I felt with the C cup bra that there wasn't much change in the way I looked when I wear my padded bras. The D cup bra was fuller and gorgeous but still fit my regular T-shirt just fine without stretching it out.
At this point Im extremely excited to have my surgery but I do have moments where I get anxious about the results, will I be to big? Will there be complications? how will this affect my family? How will this affect my daughter (5 currently) when she is older and understands what I did? I would love any input and encouragement you women have. My husband and a close friend are the only people that know I have surgery scheduled.
My surgery is in three days. Yikes! I'm have...

oh yea! The doc ended up putting 450cc in my left 475cc in my right. (silicone) I learned that my mild case of scoliosis made my chest bone stick out slightly so in order to compensate he needed a slightly bigger implant.

I went back to my PS on post op day 8. He wanted to make sure I was feeling better and that it was in fact NOT an infection starting. I do have some redness and tenderness on my right side around the incision sight, he says it is probably irritation form the steri-strips and not be alarmed unless pain starts or I have another fever.
Now on to my results, as of today Im 15 days post op. So its still very early to say how I really feel about my additions. I LOVE that i finally did it! however im concerned that my implants might be to big :( my main request was to have as natural and big as I could go. It is VERY important to me to have the natural slope/ teardrop look after its all done. Im just hoping they drop significantly and enough to give me the look I want. Im posting new pics now, I would love to hear what you all think.
Today is post op day 40. And to be honest the look...

The assistant and doc both replied in perfect unison NO!!! He did not recommend the strap mainly because he knows how uncomfortable it is. He did not even have one in the office to let me try. He recommend I lay on them. He said this is essentially the same thing with same result. The trick is to have a rolled up towel underneath me pressing on the top of the implant down toward my incision. He said to this 10 min a day. I'm really stating to wonder if this will be enough. I wish I had the strap to wear at night and then I could do this exercise different times of the day. I'm just getting anxious for results! Has anybody else done this technique and have it actually work? Also any good recommendations on a good scar cream?
