So I've wanted BA for as long as I remember and...
I had my first consultation on 20th dec. it went we'll, and I was told to do the rice test. I did it starting at 400cc (my surgeon said because of my body and shape etc I would take a bigger implant than usual, for example 300cc probs wouldn't give my bigger than a small c and I'm wanting DD or bigger!)
I could tell the 400cc we're too small so I went up to 450 and tried those for a few days
They were better but I'm still wanting bigger although my surgeon said he doesn't really like going above 450! I'm really hoping I can convince him to give me 500 as I am much happier with the 500cc rice sizers! I've tried them in both a sports bra I got off the internet (cute pink one, super comfy!) and a couple of non padded bras I got from marks and spencer, which I bought in 34DD.
They look good for my body and I do want that big look, but not huge or too fake looking!
I am being real picky but I want them to be as close to my expectation as possible, and I don't wanna have to fork out another £5000 until I really have to in 15-20 yrs! So if they turn out how I want them first time round, id be super happy!
I will try to post wish pics etc! My next consultation is booked for Friday 3rd of January 2014. I can't wait! Hopefully il get a surgery date as I am super impatient I want them like NOW lol.
I will post how that goes, I'm not sure if all surgeons do it but my surgeon said he likes to have 2-3 consultations before surgery, I don't know why but hopefully that will give him more chance of getting it perfect ! ;)
Wish me luck!!
Major boob greed!
Ok so the more i try on the rice sizers and look...
Ok so the more i try on the rice sizers and look at my 'wish pics' as such, the more I feel I need bigger implants? I am trying on 500cc sizers atm as it is! I am worried that or bigger wont fit in me, but all these girls saying they wish they went bigger etc is persuading me to go as big as possible for my size (without looking ridiculous of course) I want them to still look big when they 'drop
500ccs of rice!
Had my 2nd consultation!
Opinions please !!
Omg it's happening!
6 weeks today!
I am also trying to eat as healthy as possible (and excersise when I can get myself motivated!) as I know you cant really do much for a few weeks after the op. I got letters through the post telling me the meds to avoid prior to surgery etc and also the time I need to be at the hospital and stuff. I think im gonna start up a blog or instagram page or something just for my experience! I find other peoples soo interesting and constantly are looking them up to see how they are doing and the changes! And its really helpful, like i mentioned about that girl with the same stats as me. I think itd be only fair for me to return the favour! id love to think that I might be helping girls just like myself who are considering surgery! ALSO I cant seem to always find many reviews on forums or websites from girls in the UK, a lot are in the US.
I feel like i could talk about this subject ALL day (I pretty much to do my partner and family, and they get annoyed sometimes hehe) so I guess I should leave it here for now! I am just way to excited!
OH I also have lost half a stone! I cant believe it. I am really lucky with weight, if I do something about it, i lose it pretty much straight away, but it goes the other way too, as soon as i start eating crap and lazing about, it goes straight back on. Its werid as ive only introduced healthy eating the last 2-3 days max! I already feel non-bloated ( i felt very bloated about a week ago, permenently!) and my stomach feels flatter, and i feel better! even my cold has sort of gone.
Ive been eating whole grain cereal and pasta. Pasta is something I eat LOADS so I went and bought whole wheat organic pasta, it literally JUST contains wheat and glueten. It actually tastes great I really like it. I also bought the skinny cappuchino things as I am a coffee lover, I have about 4-5 a day!! So i have basically just switched everything I ususally eat for the same thing, just healthier. I have also found yougerts that I really like that are really low in fat and caloires, their the Shape yougerts. I have been eating them whenever I feel like snacking instead of crisps or busciuts! These tiny changes seem to have made a massive difference, and i dont feel like im dieting at all. I plan to carry on like this until my surgery and after! I think it will do my healing good as well. I was 11 and a half stone (which sounds loads but everyone says I dont look it, I think its my height that hides it!) I am now about 10st 12 pounds or something? basically just under 11! I am over the moon and it has just made me want to continue.
Anyway! I have been carrying on wearing the rice sizers in a lace non-padded underwire bra for 2 reasons 1) I want to kind of get people used to the look on me so when I have my new breasts its not a huge change and nobody asks about it! 2) I want to get used to the size and stuff for myself. I have been wearing them under my work clothes, under my every day clothes, and under my clothes I wear at home (just a vest, like in my pictures) Obviously they feel a lot heavier than normal, which I am sort of getting used to, I do think that the real implants wont feel this heavy though. Rice is heavy! and of course itl be inside me, so will feel a bit more normal than rice in my bra! I keep worrying about the size not being big enough but i cant do much about it! I will just have to hope on the day that I can fit the bigger size in!
Anyway, will update soon!
so because of this I'm pretty sure illll need a 2nd boob job to achieve my opinion of "perfect" size on myself. I do plan to have children in the near future, maybe in the next 5 years, so it would only make sense to wait until, after that to have a 2nd one (it would probably make sense to wait until then for the first one but I can NOT wait that long!)
Because I've accepted this rather than expecting huge results from my first boob job, especially working with completely no boobs pre op, I feel il be happier now with the results, I guess I never know until after :) and if they turn out bigger than I expect now, it'll be a massive bonus!
Exactly 31 days til the op now! So excited !
I saw my friend the other day who had her ba with the same ps as me and I had SO many questions lol! I know I'm having the exact same implants as her only difference is she went under the muscle, but that's because she doesn't plan to have any more children which I do plan to have kids in the future. Apart from that she had same surgeon, same implants and same hospital everything! She said il be fine, she did say that she prefers silicone to the textured silicone / polyurethane implants though (as she had sillicone before but had a caspular contracture problem so switched to polyurethane (and 5 years down the line it hasn't come back! They have the lowest rate of CC, just under 1%) and she said if she hadn't had the first silicone implants shed probs be over the moon with the ones she has now, but because she knows how soft and natural they felt she finds these ones more firm, which I hope their not too firm! But I guess she can tell the difference, I guess this is my first ba so I will be pleased whatever! As long as they squish and stuff pretty much like normal boobs I'm happy! Apparently saline are the most firm and I've seen girls show how squishy they get so I'm pretty sure il still be VERY happy :) I guess I'll just have to keep on top of the massaging !
I have a collection of sports bras which I'll include a pic of, I still feel I need a more high impact, supportive one but I'm not sure, it's just coz I feel the ones I have are so soft and comfy! Very nice but will they be supportive enough and "hold the girls in place" enough?
All I need to buy now is last min supplies like bio oil / palmers coca butter cream for stretch marks (I'm trying both to be on safe side!) maybe a V pillow although I've heard they are not always great! And maybe a last sports bra!
Any other last min suggestions? Xo
It went well, my boyfriend come with me which was really nice!
I asked loads of questions as I thought this would be my last chance! So one of my main concerns was tanning beds as I love them and wanted to start using them again, mainly so I have a good colour for summer lol! And the girls will look loads better with a tan. ;) he said they are absolutely fine pre op and post op he said some people who have darker skin pigmentation may notice the scars darken but i shouldn't worry! Phew! I might cover the scars post op just invade but I can tan! Yay!
OK so he also advised me NOT to use bio oil pre op or post op until about 3 weeks! I was worried about getting stretch marks so I might just use the palmers stretch mark cream and then use bio oil at 3 weeks post, but the reason he said this is because he said bio oil being so strong can actually break down the skin which does no favours for your skin healing post op! I guess when you think about it it could make the skin thinner therefore more viewable stretch marks! I was so glad I asked.
He said the maximum size he's ordered is 500cc, which I am pleased with and pray they fit! I do NOT want boob greed as I wouldn't be able to afford this again any time soon lol! So so far I'm getting :
Over the muscle
Conical or round implants, will be determined on the day
Profile will also be determined on the day!
Polyurethane sillicone implants (silimed)
He is basically gonna try fit the size I want on the day with the best profile for me, so I literally won't know the shape, size or profile until after really! But I really do trust him and I'm 95% sure ill be pleased.
I think he knows how to avoid common problems or silly looks that come with implants sometimes so I think he is trying what works best on the day to get the best symmetry and avoid snoopy boob or uni boob etc! When he explained the technique he's gonna use on the day to bring my wide set breasts together to create more cleavage it sounded complicated, but like he knows what he's doing! If it works then I'm pleased don't have to understand how it's done lol!
He told me that returning to normal excersise post op is fine when I feel well (I am going over the muscle so I guess I don't have to worry too much about the muscle tightening etc) but he advised me not to drastically loose weight (like a stone) as this will also go on my boobs and could show rippling but it's very rare, he was just making me aware. I'm getting dissolvable stitches so my first follow up isn't for a few weeks post op, hopefully this will be ok? I guess if I have any problems I can call.
Here's a list i have written which I need on the day:
Loose fitting front opening clothes
Bottle of water
Skincare stuff and toothbrush etc
Front open sports bra (still need to purchase! Gonna get one from m&s as highly reccommended!)
I am such an organize freak lol! I've got 2 weeks to go yet but I have to be prepped and organized otherwise I panic!
My lovely boyfriend will be coming with me to surgery, wel be getting the train to Leicester and staying there overnight (at the hospital as I'm an overnight patient ) and then hopefully my mum will be able to pick us up the next day.
I still need to get a cheque from the bank for the money, which I can take with me on the day of surgery for payment (it's a guaranteed payment cheque written to the hospital, a normal cheque needs so many days to clear!)
So so excited! Also getting my eyelashes done Tuesday, nails at some point too :) I get paid valentines day woo! Lol
ATM I'm not wearing any padding in my bras, I feel like a complete IRONING BOARD but I feel I'll appreciate the size more after surgery if i recognize my real size pre op! If I wore all my padding I probs wouldn't notice the difference I wear that much lol!
Just need to make a few last min purchases such as stretch mark cream, maybe viteman e cream and a good sports bra from m&s, and arnica cream.
Will update soon! :)
I've been tanning a lot to build up a nice tan as it makes me feel so much better and I feel it will make the girls look loads better ! I've also been trying to eat healthy (and failing on some days when I have been feeling like crap) but I'm gonna really try these last few days. I'm gonna try go jogging as much as I can and do some excersise as I know I won't be able to proper go for it first thing post op.
So apart from all that I've been just trying to keep myself busy each day to make the time pass. I was meant to go shopping with a friend today but she let me down so I went out with my boyfriend instead. We was only gonna get our nails done which apparently isn't advised anyway so I guess it's a good thing! Il be getting them done soon post op though lol! I've got together comfey zip up clothes and pjs for the night of surgery and to travel home in. I just need to get it all organized but that will give me something to do the day before! I'm working a couple of the days this week so I will be sure to stay occupied I just want it to come sooner! I am just so intrigued to see my results and just feel like a woman rather than a little girl! My bf keeps saying hel miss my small boobs and their "going soon" but I keep reassuring him they're not GOING anywhere! Lol I'm very sure once the new girls are here hel love them. It's just enhancing what I already have!
I can't quite hold in the excitement ! I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas and (I know it sounds super cheesy) but it's changing my WHOLE life! I'm looking forward to summer for once, which I LOVE the summer but I've always been nervous as I know there's no covering up my small chest, in the winter I can hide the fact I'm flat chested but in the summer it's almost impossible being too hot to wear a jacket but now il just look like a normal girl for my age and I can wear the pretty summer clothes! The summer is also a great time for me as me and the bfs birthday are in the summer (the same day surprisingly!!) and it's also out anniversary as we got together in the summer, we both love it and have so much fun together but I feel this one will be so much better as I will finally be happy with myself. Anyway life story over! 5 days to go / 6 sleeps! Bring on Monday ! Il upload some pictures of my recent purchases xoxo
Are these things all normal??
First of all, my follow up appointment is gonna be almost 3 weeks post op. I don't know if there's a reason for this, I am having different implants to standard sillicone implants which don't quite "drop and fluff" the same they are kind of put in the position from the start. Maybe that's why my follow up appt don't have to be straight after? Idk?
Second, I have not been told to wear a strap after OR do any massaging at all, in fact I've even been told I don't really need to wear a sports bra at all post op! I'm gonna wear one anyway as I really don't want them to drop too much as I am having overs!
Has any other of you girls had similar experiences where you haven't had to do things other ba girls have?
I just want my results to be as good as possible so if I should be massaging, I wanna know!
Just to remind, I'm having the polyurethane implants, so they have a fuzzy outside, I think they're also referred to as furry brazillian.
If you have these implants please tell me so I can see your results! Very few girls have them so I can't find many results online at all! Thanks lovelys!! Xoxo
Less than 24 hours!!
The hospital was lovely. Very clean and the nurses were awesome.
I arrived early and they took me to my room. A nurse came and went through everything with me and the anesthetic guy came and introduced himself and talked me through what he was going to do, which made me feel so at ease!
At this point I was still all excitement, no nerves. My surgeon came to see me too and said he'd be with me shortly. Two nurses got me to put on the sexy night gown. Paper knickers and socks. Next thing I know the two nurses came to wheel me to surgery. I said goodbye to my boyfriend and he had to move our stuff into a different room while I was in surgery, all the rooms were the same and really nice with a bathroom!
I was in a small room where I got put to sleep. I then woke up in a recovery room and was instantly given morphine which helped pain but I didn't stop SLEEPING which is why I've barely update!
I was sick a few times last night when I was taking the meds, but this morning was ok. I was given my meds at 6:30am and fell back to sleep, when I woke up I was in no pain just discomfert, I was able to get myself up and pee for the first time, then when I felt a bit better they took my drains out and I was able to wash and get dressed.
The journey home was not fun. My mum came to pick me up with my nan but I was due my meds which were buried in my bag somewhere, so until I got home I didn't take them.
I am now home in my own bed, in some pjs with my v pillow and loads of other cushions!
I am lucky to have had my lovely boyfriend and family look after me.
I had 435cc extra high profile on the left, and 460cc high profile on the right, OVER the muscle, silimed polyurethane implants.
I will update soon! Xxx
Day 5 post op
So the first couple days where quite painful but bareable. I kept on top of my pain meds and was fine. More discomfort definitely ! Slight sharp pains or weird feelings when I move certain ways or twist my arms / upper body too much.
I definitely think I pushed myself a bit day 1 and 2 post op, I was lifting things and walking around, making food etc, but it's because I felt I could at the time. Day 3 was the last day I took any pain meds! Definitely know what morning boob is now lol!
By day 4 I'm in no pain. Just a bit heavy on my chest but a sports bra helps support them.
They haven't changed much so far, just slowly getting slightly softer, was rock hard to begin with now I can slightly squeeze them - but they got a long way to go!
They started out super pointy which worried me as I want a node round shape, but girls on here have reassured me it's a waiting game and I gotta be patient! (I'm very impatient lol)
The implants I had
Silimed polyurethane foam (brazillian furry) conical sillicone implant.
Left - 435cc extra high profile
Right - 460cc high profile
Over the muscle (submammary)
These implants do not move once they're in, the foam acts like Velcro and bonds with my breast tissue, so they don't drop or sag at all. From what I hear they do fluff which is a relief as they seem small ATM for 460!
I've been using palmers stretch mark cream to hopefully prevent them. My post op appt is in 2 weeks.
Because these implants don't move and are quite firm compared to standard silicone, I do not need to wear a strap or a sports bra or anything, however I wear a sports bra or bralette when I go out to hide the pointy nipples!
So far I'm having that love hate relationship with them! Some days I love them other days I have major boob greed and think about revisions!
I will wait and see how they turn out once they settle in! :)
I went back to work for a 6 hour shift on day 4 post op and day 5, and will be tomorrow too.
Hope to update soon! Will try to add some pictures tonight xx
Day 9 post op
I also got measured, I know it's too early but I wanted to get measured now and when I can wear bras to see the difference ! I was measured today at a 36 DD/E or a 34 E ? I always have worn 34 band so I guess I could still. That was at ann summers where I love buying all my lingerie and bras. They're amazing!
I didn't buy any, although I bought some cute non padded baby dolls and stuff :)
I feel absolutely fine now, I feel healed in myself, apart from of course my insisions (which I still have the plasters on so I don't know what they look like yet!) and of course not d&fd yet, which I hope and pray there will be LOADS of fluffing !!
I also drove today, felt fine!
Hope your all healing well loves xx
Nearly 2 weeks!
I still don't feel comfortable enough to wear normal bras, but it's still early days and I can't wait til I can! I've been working out and enjoying it, and I feel like if I get slimmer my boobies will look bigger hehe!
I have and still am suffering from boob greed BUT I'm just satisfied I have boobs now! I know I won't have the money any time soon for a revision so I may as we'll learn to love these ones which I am loving them more every day!
They do seem to slowly getting more round than pointy which is a relief I just can't wait until they drop and fluff! I've seen a girls who had the same implants as me and hers have turned out lovely now and and she's at 8 weeks so it's all patience!
I have bought a few cute baby dolls and bralettes , all things I can wear without having to know my bra size! I've made sure they are in sizes that will fit me now and later.
My bandages have fell off and I finally got a look at my scars and my surgeon is just a genius, their so small ! What would you girls recommend to help them heal faster ?
As for the boobs they are lots more even now than before, somehow he's positioned the implant to push my nipples in so they don't point outwards anymore and they are perfectly in line with each other, they look very symmetrical to me even tho he said they arnt, as I said, genius!
I'm just looking forward to d&f ing now, so they are soft and move as I move, flatten out a bit as I lay down etc!
My post op is Friday.
Have a boobilicuous week loves! Xo
