First of all I would like to say that this site has really helped me out in making my final decision to have my breasts enlarged so thank you all that have posted reviews!
Anyway I am 21, 5'3", no children, and I wear a 34A bra. I have been told by someone who measured them that I am actually a "nearly A" but I think I have grown into an A now. That being said, they haven't grown since! I am about to get married so I'm not looking to get them to find a man or anything. I'm just your average college student about to start her life. I am healthy and I have a great body so it's time that I compliment this body with a nice rack ;)
All reviews that have been updated regularly have really helped me out so I'm going to do the same. I know it's a little early to start posting a review, but I just couldn't wait. I'm too excited! :)
I wil have before pictures soon and I'm going to put the 3D rendering the Surgeon did for me.
I need to add that I am 115 pounds. I plan on...

I plan on getting 300cc, under muscle, Mentor Memory Gel implants. I was going to go with 350cc, but Dr. Salzman said that he would like to stay at 300 because I'm so small he's afraid you would begin to see the implant at 350.. I'm just afraid I would have wanted them to be bigger, but I greatly appreciate his concern. That made me trust him more because he actually cared about me looking natural which is what I want.
Just added a before picture. I wanted to show what...

I hurt my back really bad at work and I've been in bed for the last 3 days. I guess this is just getting me ready to be stuck in bed again after I get my BA ha...yeah it's actually not funny, but I'm trying to laugh it off. I'm so sick of being confined to my bed :/
Anyway the real reason I wanted to update other than to let everyone know I'm a month away from getting my implants and I've been having doubts. I logged on YouTube and started watching some video diaries and just some of the things the ladies say really isn't helping me want to walk into that hospital on August 20th. I'm strong though and I know I will get myself there and I will be fine in recovery too, but until then I have all kinds of thoughts racing through my head.
One main concern is back to size of course. So my PS wants to go 300cc. I really want to be a C. No bigger and no smaller. I mean I won't be terribly upset if I am larger, but I don't want anything larger than a small D IF that is the case. I am very petite and I think a C would fit me best. I really can't wait to try on the sizers and figure out if 300cc is going to make me the size I want or if I should step it up to 350cc.
Someone had mentioned how small my waste was and actually my PS and his wife pointed out the same thing; Then I started looking at it and yeah, it's really small and then I have these hips that are protruding out to the side! I believe that a C cup will help balance out the way I look. Not saying my figure is bad looking, but come on, side boob is so going to match my hips, no?
Haha okay enough silliness, I will post a new update and probably photos July 30th!
Sorry - Please ignore my typo...I mean to say...

I have decided to go with 325 cc since I couldn't make up my mind about 300 or 350 going in the middle puts my mind at ease. I have some pictures with the sizers I will post later. Dr. Salzman's team are so nice and they give you a well put together book that includes everything you need to know like preparing for surgery, medications to avoid, going to the operating room, surgical risks, things about anesthesia, medications (about the medications prescribed and when/how to take them), postoperative care/instructions, and what you will experience as you heal. It is very very helpful.
I got 4 prescriptions which are Methocarbamol (Robaxin) which is a muscle relaxer; the nurse said this will be my best friend. Promethazine Hydrochloride (Phenergan) for nausea, Oxycodone hydrochloride (Tylox 5/500) for pain, and Cephalexin (Keflex) which is the antibiotic to fight infection after surgery. The nurse said I probably wouldn't want to take the pain medication right after surgery, but the muscle relaxer as soon as I get home and then worry about the pain meds later. They told me I should go ahead and buy some Colace which is a stool softener and I will start taking that after surgery and take it twice a day. Another thing they said I could take and start the day prior to surgery is Bromelain (pineapple extract) and/or Arnica Montana to decrease bruising. They also have Sin Ecch at the office which is a combo of the 2. They sell it for $30 so I'm wondering what it usually cost or how much it cost to buy them separate. I don't know, guess I will find out and get back to you on that.
I need to get my blood work 10 days before surgery so that will be 8-10-12. I'm not excited about that because I have never had my blood taken out of a vein in my arm before. I know some women had to get a mammogram before surgery, but I was not advised to do that. I was however told I would be taking a pregnancy test, which is fine I just for some reason didn't even think of that.
Another cool thing I got today was my Mentor Memorygel Round Breast Implants warranty. Right now they are giving you this warranty FREE for getting the Memorygel implants. This is a LIFETIME warranty so I am very excited about this being free.
I'm thinking of maybe doing a video diary during my recovery because there are some things I think everyone should know so they can be prepared for recovery. I don't know if I will yet though. I guess it depends on how I feel.
Alright if I think of anything else I will keep you all updated. Tell me how you feel about videos. Would you like to see them or is me just typing it out fine?
OH MY GOSH! Tomorrow is the day and I'm starting...
