10/21(2.5 months til surgery!) im 23 i have 2 children (ages 2yrs and 4months) and a loving husband of 4yrs :) im a small frame but im 5'7 and about 125lbs.. i was a small B before kids now im a deflated A lol.. i have always wanted them but i really want them now bc i dnt look like a woman at all.. i want to feel sexy again :)

My surgery is scheduled for Jan 5, 2012! i have saved money for a few years to pay for this! Now im just trying to decide on a size.. im thinking somewhere between a full c and small d :) i will keep my experience updated!Updated on 20 Dec 2011:Had my pre op appt today! only a little over 2 weeks til my surgery! he said to get the size i want (full c small d) would take about 425-450cc.. that seems big..?? idk im worried about going too big but i def dnt wanna go too small.. i trust him completely but im nervous..

added some before pics

i am feeling pretty great im about 11 hrs out and my pain is prolly a 3.. he ended up putting in 475cc saline unders with an armpit incision.. i gave him pics of women i liked that looked a lot like my before pics and how they ended up and their sizes ranged from 425-480cc but they all looked the same size.. i know every woman needs a diff size implant to get the same outcome.. i got a good peak rt when i woke up and i think i will end up being a full 34C/small 32 D ..

Right now i am really swollen and they look kinda funny.. i will post some pictures in a few days..

as far as Dr Bartell.. he is seriously the most caring doc.. he is a great listener and really down to earth.. he even just called me himself to check on how i was doing/feeling. his staff is also equally as wonderful and caring.. i am a horribly nervous person and they made me feel so at ease which i usually very difficult to do :) I would highly recommend him :)

Day 2..sucks.. omg i was soo sick this morning.....

day 2..sucks.. omg i was soo sick this morning.. threw up a few times.. in horrible pain all day.. i cant wait til i can get myself outta bed or off the couch.. but i just keep telling myself it was all worth it :)

im feeling a lot better but im pretty sore still.. especially when i wake up in the morning..i really like the way they are turning out and love the size.. my stomach is pretty swollen but he said that was normal and my left as dropped more than my right side

i also had my post op appt today and got my stiches out and i will have to return in 2 weeks.. i have to wear a strap above my breasts and will have to continue to wear it for 2 more weeks..

So far extremely HAPPY :)

10 days post op. i have been feeling pretty good...

10 days post op. i have been feeling pretty good.. im only sore for a little bit when i wake up but then im fine.. im not allowed to put my arms up but im pretty sure i could without pain.. i also still have to wear the strap for another week.. cant wait to get it off

i do have a big rash under my each armpit (my incisions are there).. it started 2 days ago and i thought the itching was the incisions healing and i couldnt help but itch and it spread to a rash..apparently i was allergic to the tape.. so i called the doc and he said to put hydrocortizone cream on it.. i was seriously going crazy this morning with how bad it itched!!

my next appt is tues the 24th.. i will try to update after that and take some new pics :)

i will be 3 weeks po tomorrow.. i am feeling very great..back to all my normal activities.. i still have a little rash under my armpits but it doesnt bother me anymore. they are getting softer but still have a ways to go.. but i have soo happy with them :) worth every penny!

its been 7.5weeks since my surgery and they are perfect! they have fully dropped and are really soft. im wearing a 34d or 32dd at victorias secret (they do not look that big in clothes tho) i think they are a perfect size for me. im posting some new pics in my new bra. it is a light push up VERY minimal padding :) i will try to get some full lenth shots soon so you can see proportions.. i stopped having "morning boob" around 4 weeks and could sleep on my back flat and side around the same time.. around 5 weeks i could sleep on my stomach again. i am having sooo much fun shopping for bras and clothes :) but most of my clothes from before still fit me i just actually fill them out now :) lol

Its been about 3 months and 1 week and they feel...

Its been about 3 months and 1 week and they feel great.. they are all the way healed and i LOVE them! i had my last post op appt last week, and then i went shopping for a new bikini :) i cant wait to actually wear it and get a tan :) Everything with my boobs are great but i do have to have abdominal surgery in about a month :( i have severe diastasis recti and a few ventral hernias.. so i will be having surgery to fix the hernias.. i already have a couple of little scars on my hips from an appendectomy and i have some stretch marks .. now i get to add approx 5 more little scars on the upper part of my abdomen but atlest this will fix the pain im having and i will be able to get my ab muscles back :)

I posted a some pics in my new bikini :) sorry they are not the best its hard to take pics of yourself lol

Wow its been 6 months since i got my boobies :) i...
