I'm 35 years old, married for 10 years, mother of two girls, age 7 & 4. I've always been painfully flat-chested, relying on heavily padded bras just to look "normal".
I'm 5'9", 130 lbs, and not quite an A cup. I will be getting saline implants under the muscle. My PS recommended 425 cc, and I was able to try on sizers to see how they would look on me. The high cc number scared me, but with my frame and lack of existing breast tissue they looked just perfect! We expect that I might be a full C cup in the end.
About 2 weeks to go, and I'm feeling the nerves! My initial consult was about 8 months ago, so I've had all the time in the world to think about this and wonder if it's the right decision for me. I'm excited about the end result, but extremely nervous about the procedure and recovery!
The countdown is really on now--ONE WEEK TO GO!...

I feel a lot more at peace with my size decision. Finally had to stop comparing before/after pics online and just remember how the sizers looked with my body. There are so many factors that go into finding the right look, so it's nearly impossible to find someone just like me who ended up with results I want.
Why is there such a stigma associated with breast...

Why can't women be happy for other women who want to boost their self confidence by enhancing their figure???? If someone wanted to have their crooked teeth straightened, nobody would talk bad about them behind their back! What's the difference? I wish I didn't feel like I have to keep my BA a secret. There are only a handful of people who I've told, who I trust, who support me and my decision. Does anyone else feel this way...like you're sneaking around hoping no one will find out?
Well, I did it! It's post-op day 2, and I am...

Doc ended up going with 375 cc instead of the 425 we had initially talked about. I think that was a wise choice! As tight as my chest feels right now, I can't imagine them being any bigger! Now if I could only fast forward a couple of weeks or so and get past the discomfort. I'm so ready to go shopping for some cute bras =)
Made it to day 4 with no major incidents! Pain is...

Another frustration I'm having is that my boobs seem to disappear when I put on regular clothes (as opposed to the sweatshirts I've been wearing for the last 11 days, lol). I was hoping to see an improvement from the padded bra pre-op look, but so far I'm not convinced even though they look HUGE with nothing on. I haven't gone bra shopping yet (Doc said to go bra-less until sutures are removed), so hopefully a nice bra will round out the bottom area and I will be able to dress appropriately =)
I made it to the 8 week mark (tomorrow), and I'm...

During the first month or so, I was really worried about my friends noticing my new loo (I only told a few friends/family). But now I feel less self-conscious and much more confident wearing figure flattering tops. So looking forward to bathing suit season!!

After taking some new pictures in the same tank top and comparing them to earlier pics, I can see that the haha's have indeed dropped a little. My nipples are looking up a little more, too. I'm tickled pink with my results so far, and loving my D cups =)
I was killing time at Walmart before picking up my...
