Postponing for now!

When I was 19 I decided to get a breast reduction, went from a 36DD to 36A/34B. With time and losing weight my breast have lost the volume and now they depress me, I never want to take my bra off ever. I'm schedule to have my breast augmentation at the end of March. I plan on getting mentor silicone under the muscle, still deciding on what size to get ( Ideally a C), after all I am 5ft and 117lbs and I don't want to look top heavy again. I've been wanting implants now for the past 4 years and have done extensive research and this site has helped me out and I love reading everyone's stories. I'm just really scared on what could go wrong and praying nothing goes wrong. Reading people's explant stories and the horror ones keep making me second guess myself in getting them done. I want to feel sexy and confident again, just really nervous about the what ifs.

Waiting for my PS to call me back, hoping to up my...

Waiting for my PS to call me back, hoping to up my surgery from March 26th to next week. I'm starting to get more anxiety about it and hoping I'm not making the wrong decision, I just want to be happy as all you girls and look amazing like everyone does. Fingers crossed and hopefully I'll know Monday!

I have my pre-op appt tomorrow and I'm starting to...

I have my pre-op appt tomorrow and I'm starting to freak out and praying I have no regrets. I am very excited and want them but had to read a couple of horror stories today about toxicity and complications from breast implants. I know everything in life comes with risk and hopefully I will not have any risks or anyone else!

Had my pre-op appt today and feel so much better and excited now for surgery. I have decided to go with 325cc (hope they aren't too big). I also decided to have a mini tummy tuck and some liposuction which scares me about recovery time, but it will be worth it to look and feel better about myself.

March 13th is the big day, I'm very excited and...

March 13th is the big day, I'm very excited and scared out of my mind at the same time lol. I am a little sad I won't be able to celebrate St Pattys day this year and its one of my fav days, but trading one day on for looking good!! I have decided to do it all and finally feel good about myself and hoping after this ill be able to wear a bikini for the first time. I will be getting 325cc under the muscle (should give me a C) , a mini tummy tuck with lipo on my stomach and hips. Praying it will all be worth it!

How long did everyone take the arnica pills for after surgery?

I'm 10 days away and hoping I have everything ready. I'm just starting to panic about the anesthesia, IV, being light headed and nausea, lol. I'm going to try to exercise like crazy the next 10 days since it will be awhile before I'm back into it. But very excited for the new me!

I keep going back and forth now... Being excited...

I keep going back and forth now... Being excited and then having doubts : / I'm already paid for and 99.9% sure I'm getting them, I just need to stop reading regret and horror stories.

Nurse from the hospital called me to ask me pre-surgery questions today and she advised me I have to be cleared by my primary doctor first. I have that appt on Monday and they had to squeeze me in and thank god they could since the big day is Wednesday. Fingers crossed I get cleared.

I'm getting very excited and now I'm just...

I'm getting very excited and now I'm just obsessing over the fact I have to have a pre-surgery exam done by my primary doctor and pray I pass on Monday. Hoping the next 5 days Dont seem to drag, but I'm thinking positive and going out for one last celebration tonight with my girlfriends and looking forward to some margaritas, lol.

Had a blast out with my girls last night for one last celebration of the old me, i was so excited about getting my surgery and well today I'm back on the emotional roller coaster. My nerves are getting to the best of me and I'm starting to second guessing myself now and praying I'm not making a mistake. Hate days like today, and hope this feeling passes soon!

Any advice ladies on moderate plus or high...

Any advice ladies on moderate plus or high profile? I'm going to call the office tomorrow to ask some questions but would love some input!

So my primary physician has not cleared me yet as we are waiting for my blood work to come back and if my levels are not therapeutic for the medication I'm on then ill have to reschedule. I'm trying to stay positive and praying I can keep my surgery date for the 13th!

So my surgery had to get postponed to the end of...

So my surgery had to get postponed to the end of the month or till April 3rd. I'm looking at this for me to lose a few more lbs and to get all my push-ups done since I read you will not be able to do them anymore or any chest exercises after your BA. I'm also starting to get a little anxious and reading more stories which is making me question myself again, I really just want to get off this emotional roller coaster. I want to thank all of you ladies for your support and stories, it means so much to me. xoxo

I actually called the office today to cancel my BA...

I actually called the office today to cancel my BA from freaking out lol. They talked me back into it and have set my date to March 29th. This past week has bee stressful and emotional. I also started looking into fat grafting, but its expensive and I love the look of implants. I think it would be easier and not so emotional if I actually had a bf or husband for support. Again I can't thank you ladies for all the love and support, means so much to me! xoxo

After lots of thinking I have decided to postpone...

After lots of thinking I have decided to postpone my BA for the time being. Since I am not 100% sure I'm going to wait till I am. I'm going to have my mini TT and lipo done this Friday and go from there. I want to thank all you ladies for support and I wish you all the best with your BAs. I wish I was ready but unfortunately I'm not and I have some self-esteem issues I need to work on first. But love to all of you xoxo!!

Actually cancelled everything for now, some...

Actually cancelled everything for now, some personal things came up. So I will be focusing on eating healthy and exercising and hope to reschedule after summer. I wish all you ladies the best, can't tell you how much all our support means to me. Love you all xoxo!!

Good for you! Please exercise all if your options before going through with implants! I got then 5 weeks ago and it's the worst mistake I have ever made. Nothing is wrong with my results, they look pretty. The fact that I am no longer natural has really freaked me out! If you're looking for a slight increase in volume, try BRAVA. PS here on realself say it does infact work, but many women aren't satisfied because they want a more drastic increase in size. I wish I had tried all options before going under the knife. I know it's rare and most women love their implants, but I was one of the unlucky ones who cannot adjust to them and miss being 100% natural. Good luck!

That's a great idea. There aren't many mini TT reviews out there. I have another consult with my PS on Monday and if we do decide to go with the mini, I'm going to start one too. (Although I'm going to push for a full or at least a modified mini, I don't think I am going to get what I am looking for with just a mini)
  • Reply
I know, im worried about that too. my ps says I don't have enough skin for a full and hoping the lipo will help. one girl on here just did tumescent lipo instead of a tt and her results were amazing, so hoping with him doing that and the mini I will have a flat tummy. im looking forward to reading your blog :)
