I have always been very flat chested, I got to 13 years old and all my friends were getting bras and I still had nothing! Getting a breast augmentation would always cross my mind, however due to many reasons, money, job, getting married and three babies time slipped away.
I am now 38 years old 173cm tall and weigh 58kgs and after having my beautiful babies I am now even flatter (if that's possible lol) than before. My husband never really wanted me to get my boobs done as he said he loved me just the way I was etc etc, however over the years he has realised how much I hate looking the way I do. I explained to him how not a moment goes by in my mind when I undress about how depressed I am looking at my boobs, I feel like a child or a boy! I would be embarrassed wearing my bikini at the pool and even with padding etc still looked flat and boney in my chest.
So I finally did it and went to two surgeons and decided to go with my second
Surgeon. When he was measuring me he said yes you have no breast tissue at all!! I said you're telling me lol!!! So my ps recommended 280cc moderate profile round silicone under the muscle. I want to look fairly natural and my goal size is a large b to a c cup. I hope that I will get there with 280cc. I actually rang my surgeon last week and asked to go a little bigger maybe to 300cc??? It's so worrying as I don't want to go through all of this and regret not going bigger but I also don't want to look that obvious that I got my boobs done. Like everyone else I am so nervous but so excited about finally having boobs and actually shopping for bras that aren't padded!!!
My 6 yr old keeps seeing me looking at reviews and told my husband that mummy keeps looking at bras and she wants some for Mother's Day ha ha. Anyway ill keep you updated with my progress its so wonderful to read everyone's journeys and know that I'm not alone and that it will be ok.
I spoke to the plastic surgeon today and we have...

Well I've cleaned the house, made some dinners for next week and froze them, I have everything I need after surgery. It's just the waiting now. I'm going to explain to my kids tonight about my surgery. They sort of know what's happening but haven't been very interested they are 9,8 and 6. My best friends gave me a little bag today filled with magazines, a new bra, and Reece's peanut butter cups which are my favourite!!! My sister also dropped over a good luck card and a box of chocolates so I have been spoilt. My sister knows how depressed I've always been about my boobs and totally understands my decision to have the surgery. Funny thing is ten years ago she had a breast reduction!!!! It's a joke in our family that I should have been lying in the bed next to hers getting some of hers that she didn't want!!! Anyway I will post some photos as soon as I can. I am soooooo nervous x
I finally have boobs!!! I just got home and feel...

- Day of treatment
My surgery went well. My husband and I got to the hospital at 11.30, and by this stage I was starving!!!! I was sent in pretty much straight away. I had to take an anti nausea tablet and a gastric acid tablet. I was weighed and then placed on a bed and waited for my PS to arrive. The nurses were so lovely and knew I was nervous. My ps came in did his markings and we had a little talk and then the anaenthitist came in and placed a needle in my forearm and gave me some calming drug as he called it and bam I feel asleep.
I woke up at 2pm in recovery and just felt a liitle sore and hard to breathe in and out like something was on my chest. So the nurse gave me fentanyl and I fell asleep for another two hours. When I woke again the nurse helped me get dressed and I saw my boobs !!!! I was so happy just to see something on my chest, it was surreal!!! Anyway I was sent out to another recovery room where I met my hubby. He was worried as I took so long. So the nurse gave me sandwiches and a cup of tea, and I can tell you it was the best cup of tea I've ever had ha ha!! I was then discharged as I didn't feel sick at all, I briefly spoke to my Ps who said everything went well and that I had waterproof tape and the stitches are disolveable so I can shower when I want.
I went home and lay down and pretty much slept on and off through the night.
My three girls were so gorgeous, they came in to me and were so gentle and kissed me. My youngest is quite wild ha ha but she knew to be gentle.
I had a shower this morning and it felt sooo good I was a little nervous having a shower and was very careful. I keep looking at my boobs and can't believe it!! I've been waiting so long for this and I feel so happy already. Just to fill out a bra and look feminine, I wish I did it years ago but I think the time is right in my life now. I have no regrets at all so far and just hope everything goes well with my healing. I started some light post op exercises this morning like raising my arms slowly up, and there was very little pain, so I feeling pretty good. I know some people say day three is bad so I am preparing myself for that. Anyway I'm just resting today, kids are at school so have a quiet house!!! Lol. I also posted a photo of the bra my girlfriends got me as I remember looking at it when they gave it to me thinking how good it will feel when I can fill this!!!!!!!
I am day 3 post op and love my boobs. They are...

I found out the PS put in silimed silicone round implants 305cc Hi profile, so glad I didn't get the 280cc now, I think this size is good for my shape I could of even gone a little bigger maybe 320cc but I am still happy with my choice. Hope everyone is recovering well and will update again soon :)

Been doing some post op exercises but my ps does not suggest massage but I can't really feel my boobs getting any softer yet. I know it can take time.
I feel pretty good only taking panadeine extra strength and just have sore chest muscles but pain wise nothing really. Sleeping on the lounge still but getting good sleeps considering. I tried on a few bras I tried on pre op and was so happy actually being able to fill out the bras now!!!!!

I have noticed my left boob has dropped a bit but my right is higher, I also notice I have a space between my breasts which I guess was there before but I never knew as I had nothing, so my cleavage isn't close. I can't complain though its early days and I have boobs!!! Instead of a flat boys chest. Anyone considering this, it is so worth it my self esteem has increased and it is not as half as bad the pain/ recovery, it is so worth it!!!!

One thing I love now is bra shopping!!! A task I hated on the past. I saw a 10a bra today and it was tiny and just to think I had gaps in my old 10a s!!! I am measuring a 10c and my 10b bra my friends got me is too small now!!! Best thing I have ever done for myself:)
