Hi Ladies!!! Where do I start? I've read so many...
When I was a young 22, I decided that I needed implants to make my body more proportioned. I felt a bit insecure and thought implants were the fix. From about the month after my BA, I felt my breast were too large. I wanted to be a C cup but ended up a giant D. To start with a 34A and end up at a large D was pure shock. I cried and felt hopeless. I eventually adjusted and stopped thinking about it. I dressed to hide the giants instead of show them off. It has always been clear to my friends and family that I'm unhappy with the attention I get. So, now at almost 31 and a married/ mother of two, I've finally it's time to bid these fake and toxic bags good bye. I'm ready for natural me. I want to be able to run and play with my kids and not be in pain.
So, I've done months of research and I've decided on a doctor and a date! I couldn't be any more excited.
*Pre BA I was a 34A and now I'm a 34 full D. My implants are submuscular, Mentor high profile, 500cc's. For my 5'6 frame,122lbs, they're too big!
October can't get here soon enough!
My PS office mailed me the paperwork for my labs so that finally made this feel real and like the ball is rolling! I'm going to try and post pics in the next day or two.
New date possibly- ready to pay!
Nerves setting in already!!!
Pre-op reminder call
OH YEAH... I need good recommendations for zip up sports bras. PS said I will need to be in it for almost a month. How do I know what size? Once these implants are removed... I don't know what size I'll need to accommodate ?
I posted more pictures of my giant implants... I'm so over them and ready to get rid of them. What was I thinking?!?!?
Pre-op appointment today!
Had my pre-op
ANXIETY!!!! 1 week to go
I made it to the implant free side!
Off to sleep again, thank you all for such great support. I'll post pictures on Wednesday.
Went to the mall
My husband loves my new girls or so he says. I have no idea why I doubt his compliments. I guess bc he raved so much over huge boobs that now I question how he is so happy with my small ones. I know, I need to be glad he's so loving and supportive. I guess I'm just a little down.
Sweet, Sweet husband...
So, I take some seriously long showers since surgery due to me being overly cautious with my stitches. As I open the shower curtain to get out, there was a card waiting for me... The fact that he knew how much I was struggling yesterday and went out of his way to do the "little things" only reassures me that not only I am loved for me but that he's also just much happier to have "natural"!
I'd be lying if I said this process was easy emotionally, physically and financially. In every way, I have had doubts and fears. What I do know and would tell anyone of you that is considering this is to follow your heart. Have patience (still a tough one for me) with your recovery and self esteem. You will have to relearn the healthy you all over again. I can assure you that once the implants are out... You will get a sense of huge relief.
To all of you beautiful ladies that have already been through the whole ordeal, thank you for always reinforcing what I have always felt and known, I'm perfectly fine and beautiful without those huge implants.
I adore all of you, I feel like you are all my best friends. If I can ever be that shoulder for you or the listening ear... Please let me know!
I'll post new pics tomorrow :)
I quite honestly met with doctor Brueck first. He and all of his staff were just amazing. I told him that I was tired of the back aches and had become rather self conscience of my implants. Dr. Brueck offered to down size my implants but I told him that after becoming a mother and meeting my husband, I'm comfortable with the natural me. I've grown up and I feel my health and setting a good example for my daughter is top priority. He was very supportive and said it would still look great without implants. Due to how large my implants are (500cc's), he said I may or may not need a lift. I'm thinking to be safe I should have a lift... ( have you guys had one with your explant?)
