I finally made the decision a couple of months ago to reverse the gravity changes of my breast. I'm really excited and Thursday is the day! At first hubby did not want me to do this, but I think he has finally warmed up to the idea. It's not my size that bothers me as I am a full C cup, but it's that after kids and just life, they don't "hold up" to what they used to. The doctor told me I will be a solid D when all said and done. I just had lipo on my abs and flanks on 2/22, and I am very happy with that, so getting this done will complete the areas that have been bothering me.
My mom passed away at the age of 58 from breast cancer, and she had had saline implants at the age of 38. She was diagnosed when she was 48, but because of the implants the tumor was only suspected at age 43 and she never followed up until age 48 when it was found that she had cancer. I do believe she would still be alive today had she taken care of the tumor right away. I am 52 and in my early years I said I would never get implants because of what happened to my mom, but now a days many more pictures are taken if a woman has implants and I am very faithful about having mammograms every year.
My husband forbids me to post any pictures so I can’t show my before and after photos, but I’ll update this post the day after my surgery or later depending on how I feel to share my experience. :-)
Tomorrow is the day! I'm very excited to finally...

Excuse my last dreary post. I guess I was just in a funk that day. Feeling much better overall. I finally got out of that surgical bra! Yay!!! Looks like I will be a 34-36 D to DD when all the swelling is down. They do look pretty darn nice, I have to say. Hubby is very happy as well. :-)
So I am just about 3 weeks post op and I am...

I am very happy with the aesthetic appearance of my breasts now. When they feel all the way up to par again, I'll even be happier. But as the saying goes, "no pain no gain!"
It's been about five weeks shy of two days since...

I have a couple friends who have had implants and I can talk to them just fine about things, but one woman who used to be a really good friend will not talk with me about it even when I mention it in an email. I guess some people do not agree. My husband said I am too critical of every little facet of my body and that I wanted it so he went along with it. We got into a big fight over this last night because he said the lipo and this are really not that big of a deal to him. He said I was just fine before. Too me I wasn't and I did not like the way things looked.
So that being said, I wonder why I even bothered and should have just left well enough alone. I have to say it does hurt because besides the cost, its painful and uncomfortable for quite a while. At least it has been for me. And then I think, wow, I'm older and I should just be who I am and leave my vanity aside for good. Overall, I am happy that I did it, I just can't talk to some friends about it because they'll think I am acting like a teenager getting this stuff done. Oh we'll, what's done is done. No turning back now. It's nice to not have to wear a bra around the house if I don't want to and to fit in a swim suit better, and to not have that little belly I was adopting. So yeah, I guess still worth it. Writing this on this forum is therapy for me today. I need it right now.
