Boobies! - Huntington Beach, CA

I chose to have BA because I had an opportunity and I ran with it. I have always been self conscience about my boobs and I figured you only live once, so live it with boobs! My first concern is the whole surgery part because I have never had any surgery of any kind. My second concern is that they don't turn out right. I do have a gap and I want to fix that and actually have cleavage. I really hope it turns out!

Sorry that's what I meant too! Lol But I think morning ones are best cause the doctor will have a better attitude instead of the "lets hurry so we can go home" attitude like I do when I am at work! Haha

Oh, I meant the first one that my Dr. operates on. For some reason I think he will do his best work then! Lol!

So my appointment got move up a little so I am the first one of the day! Yay! So I can wake up, go to sleep and get new boobies, wake up and go home and sleep! I am seriously so excited! I have done so much research that I ran out of things to look at and research about BA. I guess that would be my compulsive side! Only 4 more days!!!!

I am so excited!! I can't even explain it in words! lol I'm a 32b now and hope to be a full c cup after. I decided on saline unders. Do you have any advice for preparing? I got crackers and some little things, anything else I need for before my surgery?

Okay, so today is day 4 and I finally feel alright. The day of surgery went well until I got home and I was puking my brains out. Not a good feeling when you feel like you have an elephant on your chest. The first 3 days were pretty bad. I had to take Vicodin and soma together just to be able to somewhat relax and breath. The tightness was horrible. My back also hurt and was extremely tight. I had a heating pad on my back and and ice pack on my front. I was beginning to think that the boobs were not worth the pain. But I changed my mind today since it was actually not bad today. I also had a visit from the period fairy the day after my surgery. OMG not only was I sore and tight from the new boobs but I was cramping and all sorts of uncomfortable from my period. :( I am happy to have my boobs though. They are very tight and high on my chest and I can't wait for them to be normal!!!! Will post pics soon!

So I am 1 week in today! Yay! I feel great! My gap is slowly but surely closing a little (thank goodness)!! I had the tape removed from the incision sight, slightly painful, but have realized I am a baby when it comes to pain. I am going to Vegas in 2 weeks and I am worried about looking "fake" in a bathing suit. What is a good bathing suit to where to "hide" the new girls? Any suggestions? Also still feel bloated in my tummy region. When does that go away? And I am itchy too. All normal from what the Doc said. I also bought a new bra I am a 34c/32dd! Wow, Having boobs is awesome!

My stomach swelled up pretty big after surgery too.  It took about 2 weeks for it to return to normal.  I think your swelling will be gone for sure by the time you go to Vegas.  How exciting!  I'm going to Vegas in July and can't wait to wear my new swimsuits!

I also don't think you have to worry about looking "fake".  You will probably have some swelling still, but I don't think you should worry too much :-)

You look great!! It's day 8 for me and I still can't sleep on my side:( I do have a really great pillow with arms that props me up. I love that thing! I think I'm going to end up a 34d I was hoping for a c but I think those babies are going to stay D's. But who knows things still need to settle.

I still can't sleep on my side either.I just want to be healed too. How did work go? I am off till the 16th. Haven't driven yet, but I soooo want to cause I get so bored at home. Let me know how work went!!

Okay so I was told that I don't need to massage but if I do does that help make them fall faster and get softer? I find myself rubbing them anyways cause it feels good (not a good thing when you have friends over hahaha). Suggestions?

Yikes! Glad you made it! ;)

Have you driven yet? I am 7 days post op and had to drive 4 days post op. Just take it slow and keep those elbows in. I moved my seat forward a little and took it easy. You look great in your pics! Happy Healing!

I actually just drove to CVS. It was a little scary cause I am not so mobile and it is storming outside right now. Like seriously flooding and pouring! Lol But I survived!

So I wish that there were websites with progressions of breast augmentations. I will try to do something like that on here and post pictures every week or so. I hope this is helpful to those thinking of getting BA.

I am beyond happy with my boobs. My only concern is the gap, but I had it before so I knew I would have it after. I didn't want to have the pocket (where the implant is) expanded to have them closer together because of the risk of symmastia (uni-boob). Other than that everything has been great!

Love the last pics you posted! All I can say is Wow!! You must be so happy. How are you feeling? My nipples are sooo sensitive and I still have pain on my sides but the tightness is much better. Mine also need to drop, day 14 and they are still so high!
  • Reply
Thank you!! You look great too! I am feeling good. Back to work today. Still a little tight but I only really notice it when I am on my feet for a long time. I still ice them at the end of the night too. I bought a cheapy bra from target that I love. It doesn't have any padding or wire in it because I can't wear those for a while. My nipples aren't that sensitive. I am tender only at the incision sight which I was told to massage in the shower. How is your recovery going?
Thanks for posting the photos. It is extremely helpful to see your progress!

I just wanted to tell all the beautiful boobalicious girls out there that I went to forever 21 today and they have super cute bathing suits for $4.50 a piece!!!!!! I went crazy! I actually had to go to the medium/large top section.... never done that before! It was certainly an ego boost! :)

You look great. Makes me want to go swimsuit shopping right now. I am 4 wks po and am just now getting to sleep on my side. I was a side/belly sleeper before, so I take 1 pillow long way tucked under my arm & chin turned onto my side. ( that sounds really confusing). But good luck in your recovery & have fun in Vegas!

It's been 3 weeks yesterday since my BA and so far so good. The only thing that I don't like is that my nipples are super sensitive. I have to be careful not to rub them because they are so sensitive. I went to Vegas last weekend for a work thing for my husband and it was quite cold at night. The cold mixed with really sensitive nipples isn't too fun. I am going back this weekend for a mini vacation with my husband and I'm nervous about being in a bathing suit. Although they are dropping a bit and stuff I still don't want to look all fake. We will see what happens. I posted my 3 week pictures below. Man oh man have hey changed! Thank god! lol Hope everyone is doing well!

Can I get more information on your doctor and possible address? I live in CA and have been trying to get consultations..
  • Reply
Of course, his name is Dr. Hoang Bui his office is out of Anaheim Ca and the number there is (714) 535-2553. He is seriously an awesome doctor. He is honest and tell you all the pro and cons from the get go! I know of about 6 people who have gone to him for their BA and they were all satisfied! Good luck and keep me posted!

So I am now 5 weeks post op and there are a few changes. My nipples aren't as sensitive now. I am a bit itchy but have been rubbing lots of lotion on the girls which seems to help. I went for my 5 week post of visit yesterday and my doctor said that I am good to do all my regular activities. I was excited because I can now swim and ride roller coasters! I have a six flags and Disneyland annual pass so I was so excited to hear I can go now! He said that he was surprised how soft the girls were too. I got saline and usually saline is more firm than silicone but he said they were more soft than they should be for 5 weeks out. They will be getting more soft as time goes by. I went to Victoria Secret and bought a whole bunch of bras! I am now a 32 DD with no padding! Crazy! I got a few wire bras with no padding and then a few with for when I go out. He said I have a little more dropping to do and then the fluffing will happen. I am going to Hawaii in 3 weeks for my anniversary and so excited to hit the beach! That's pretty much it for now. Oh, the only downside to the girls is I gained like 6-7 pounds cause I couldn't be active. Hopefully I can burn that off before Hawaii!! Hope everyone is healing well and doing great! Will update if anything changes!

OMG they look great I'm so happy for you Im been wanting to do it but I can't find good surgeons in Washington I've looked into California but they never tell me a price after I send in my pics I would love it if you could give me the info where you went so I can go. 5'3 I'm 110 lbs and an A cup I really want to go to a full C cup any comments how that wld look on me?

Thank you!!! I went to Dr. Hoang Bui in Anaheim California. If you google his name you can get his contact info. I absolutely loved the girls in the office and him. His pricing is very reasonable too! I did 400cc and I am a 32dd/34d depending on the bra. I am also 5'7 or 5'8 and 130lbs. I think a full C on you would be somewhere around 350cc. When you go for your pre op you get to try the implants on. You get a better idea with them on your body. Good luck with the search and keep me posted! :-)

Hey Lady!!! Love the white tank pic!! That pic is saying, YEP their hot!!!  You look amazing and must be so happy!! How are you feeling? I'm still not 100% but I'm getting better everyday and I am so happy I decided to do this.

Obviously i cant cout...hahhahahah...11 more days...lol....I sure will love. Thanks for the tips. We are the same measurements. Height and everything. the 400 looks great. Its mind blowing how the same size of implants might look different on people with the same heights and measurements...soo creepy.hahahhahah....

Everything has been going great. Every once in a while I wake up with a sore pinching feeling in my left breast. It's almost like I pinched the muscle or something but it is not that bad. Other than that everything is good! Super soft and bouncy. No complaints... definitely happy I did this!

That's great I'm glad it was worth doing. How many cc did you end up going with to get your results? Also did you have any complications post surgery?

How are the implants holding up one year post up? I was considering dr. Bui and can use some one to talk to who has had work done by him
  • Reply
They are fantastic!! I have had no problems! They are still perky... But not in a fake way. I actually got a little bigger too. I guess it's the "fluffing" part if it. Scars are pretty much gone since I am very fair skinned so they blended in. Any other questions you have feel free to ask! :)
