Well, I've finally scheduled my consultation! And lorrrrrd, am i more impatient than ever before! In fact, I may call the office tomorrow and push for an earlier date if possible. BA/BL is something I've known I've wanted/needed since even before baby. I have always suffered from ptosis as well as small breast w large nips. After baby however, my ptosis became much more pronounced, breast became larger, & nipples became smaller (not a bad thing) but much more "rugged." Up until recently, I was ok with my body and knew that with pregnancy comes body change. Unfortunately for me, it was change in all the worst ways. Stretch marks EVERYWHERE, severe ptosis, and deflated "C" cup boobs. Very disappointing. So that's a very summarized explanation as to why I've chosen to go through with BA/BL. My low self esteem brought on by my new and unimproved body, have brought me to a new, very scary, low.. I can no longer bare looking at myself in the nude, can't fill out any bras properly, and lets not even talk about the toll it's taken on my sexual relationship. My boyfriend of 8yrs hasn't been able to see or fell my chest since our baby was born... Over a year ago :( Extremely depressing to say the least (tear). Anyways, my consult is in a couple weeks and given that all goes well, I will schedule my procedure for ASAP! I have all the support I need physically and emotionally all within my boyfriend. He's actually a Registered Nurse so he'll be w me every step of the way :) Now, obviously I have many questions but a lot of them I'm saving for the doc. I was hoping however, to maybe get a little more background info on the financing process and how it all works..? My chosen facility does offer CareCredit. Will I be approved/disapproved at my consultation? Can I make payments to my PS office instead of financing? Any tips or advise when using lenders such as CareCredit? The works basically lol any and all info would be greatly appreciated! Also, I'm thinking I want 400cc-450cc memorygel mentor implants, moderate plus profile... Too big, too small? Right projection? Let me know what you think! Thanks :)
Approved!... But is this a good thing? Lol
So I applied for carecredit and was approved in about 60 seconds flat lol I have really good credit, but am currently a stay at home mommy so I definitely DON'T have an income! Therefor, my bf consigned for me. (He's so good to me!) It was a very "odd" approval in that they never gave me any sort of information pertaining to the style of loan I was getting... (Interest free? Fixed rate? Nothing.) so, I called right away. They customer service rep informed me that it is in fact at my SURGEONS facilities discretion to offer me any promotional rates going on at the time.. Huh?! So basically, if my PS will allow me to make interest free payments for 18months then and only then will I be able to do so.. This didn't make much since to me since I thought I was dealing exclusively with carecredit and GM nice they are in fact the lenders.. Anyways, we'll see! We got approved for $6,500 but given that I already have half of that in cash, the full amount won't be needed. This will make my monthly payments around $200-$220. Not too shabby. Anyways! I also decided to give my PS office a call today to see if I could bump up that consult date ;) disappointingly, they said he was totally booked until then.. Boo! But it's ok, I can finally "see the light" and that's good enough for me... For now lol hoping to have these "girls" by late August 2014! Ill go ahead and add some "dream" pics.
I'm seriously obsessed! Lol morning, day, and night I'm glued to my phone or iPad looking at boobs! It really sucks having to wait it out especially when I'm such an impatient person.. Anyone whose had or has deformed breasts know what I'm talking about, especially if your finally able to have them fixed! Just a few more weeks then I get to schedule my procedure. I really hope I don't have to wait any longer than late August or early September. I may die if they give me an outrageous date months away lol ughhhh. Anywho, of course I have some more dream pics. Which reminds me... Did any of your doctors actually look at the pictures? Or will i look like a fool walking in with my collection of soft porn. hahaa
Losing my optimism...
Up until a few days ago I was feeling really optimistic and excited for the next steps in BA/BL. But... I haven't even made it to the consult yet and I feel pretty down and unsure about the whole thing (because now I KNOW I'm serious about doing it). I know if all went well, and i got the results i wanted, that I'd feel great about my decision. Now, I'm feeling guilty about adding an expense and risking my health, and happiness for those around me (my family). Not to mention the healing process and the toll it'll have on my full-time working boyfriend. Blahhhh. Idk. Supposed to go for my consult on Friday. Ill try my best not to chicken out.. I really want this but the overall risk is hard to come to terms with...ugh :-/
So I've decided to suck it up and go to the consultation. I'm still a bit sketchy of the whole thing, but it's information worth learning about I guess. I really am excited to even have BA/BL as an option, as many women can ever even consider it. It's just that these nerves are getting the best of me. BUT! I will go come hell or high water! If all goes well at the consult, and I'm confident/comfortable w the surgeon, ill hopefully be scheduling my consult for the next month or so! Don't wanna wait to long or I may just settle back into this funny looking body of mine lol
P.S. Adding a few more wish pics :)
