Hi All, I am 31 years old 5"7 and about 145 lbs. This Sept I decided that I really wanted to have a breast augmentation. I have no credit cards so I have been saving up cash over the last few months not buying anything just to reach my goals thinking of the big prize. I already meet with a surgeon and paid my down payment and I already got a week off from work from my boss. Now that I am getting within the last month in the waiting Period for my surgery I have been freaking out hoping I'm making the right choice I getting bad anxiety and just hope I am making the right decision I know it is a big risk and also a big reward but I just fear the worst my sister had a B.A and a few months later had to take them out so she went through 2 surgerys and spent about 10 k I have not told anyone in my famIly that I am doing this since what happen to my sister she is my step sister and I really don't have a great relationship with her I want to ask her what happen but I am afraid she wil tell my family . Also my surgeon told me to come off birth control so I would be starting my new pack tomorrow so it's all coming more and more a reality to me I am just torn on what to do I want it so bad but just scared of the worst please tell me is it worth it please help also do u think I should get health insurance before the procedure just in case of anything job Offers it but I have to pay a few hundred a month for it let me know if it's worth it thank you all

Hi all I'm one day post op so I finally did it my doc gave me 330 left and 370 right to even out symetry the worst part is the fear before but the whole staff where I went was so nice I even told them about my anxiety so they covered all the tools and I held the nurses hand while being put asleep I just I imagined I was on the beach in Florida then I was knocked out when I woke up I was nauseous a little and it was hard to get up but the nurse helped me and I made it through !!! I had little pain after and the vicoden had worked miracles my boyfriend has been helping me out and getting me whatever I need from the store I'm staying at the hotel till Monday then I have to go for my first follow up visit then I will go home I will post pics as soon as I can for all of you out there scared it's not that bad I am totally scared of everything even needles and I was ok u can do it I don't think I look that big but I trusted my doc on size and I think it is better a little smaller for me

Hi all just wanted to let you know that I had a really great recovery I was in no major pain at all I had my BA on Friday and by Sunday I was out at the movies I wasn't in pain but needed help getting up to go to the bathroom that was the worst part for me I stayed In a hotel that Friday sat and Sunday and checked out Monday and went home I told my mom and she didn't believe me and I said I'm not kidding she was like why did u do that to yourself then after 5 minutes she said it's ok I understand u are young and she even went with me to my first post op visit on Monday i came off the pain meds on Tuesday and just take a muscle relaxer once in a while now I am ok but the only thing is that when I put clothes on you cabt even tell I had anything done everyone says Its the compression bra holding them down I just feel flat and I want to see results I'm a little disaponted now but maybe I need to be patient I am posting all my pics on Monday when I get back to work I am also dreading going back cause they all want to see me and i feel there is nothing to show

I think they look perfect! I similar stats 5"5 130 and I'm asking for 350. I am in even so the numbers will be different depending on what evens me out but I hope my outcome looks as lovely as yours!

first of all, thank you so much for sharing this journey. You've been an amazing tool for me to decide myself! should i just stick to my semi saggy boobs or go all in? i'm just wondering if i should spend the money. i don't know...
  • Reply
I say go for it.. I am happier with them than my old version but just really think about size. I personally feel I went too big and I feel uncomfortable with anything that shows them off. I feel like everyone checks me out and im not comfortable being that girl.. good luck
  • Reply
I say go all in I have no regrets with doing it and it was a good investment in myself it took me six months to save and was worth it just wish I went bigger I think u should go for it or wait until you know for sure I just rescheduled my redo for feb 6th still deciding to do that or not

And that's my fear, I have saggy 36c and would just like them perkier for side boob view, I don't want them bigger, that would mean an entire lifestyle change especially when working out

With bienstock ? He was really good I had no pain after he just went way to small with me dr jones is gonna do my redo cause he didn't feel comfortable going bigger
  • Reply
I say go for it I had no pain at all after see what he says
  • Reply
Yes things I'm thinking about I have 36c now sometimes I think I should just be grateful for what I have I'm getting used to them now at first I was really upset but now ok with them
  • Reply
Ok I got 330 and 375 and still workout it feels very natural but I had nothing before u already have a c so may be different
  • Reply
Yep Dr Bienstock...I will tell him what I want, if he does em like yours I'd be happy, they're up, they're not huge, I had to search for your scar, they're perfection, that beach photo is perfection
  • Reply

Wow you do look great tho! I just booked my redo today. I know I want bigger but now I'm second guessing,,, prob mostly cuz of the $$. UGH!! So frustrating. Keep us posted with what you decide to do! 
  • Reply
Thanks wow we have the same issues my PS is charging me $3500 for the redo and I already paid 500 so it would be 3000 more I just feel like I paid so much already and I am scared of complications of going bigger but there were the same risks the first time I will keep you posted

Money is a big thing for me too! I'd be getting a loan... They look awesome though!
  • Reply
Thank you please make sure you go big enough I didn't and now am in the process of getting the money for a redo
  • Reply
Hey long time no talk... I have big ones but I dont think there all that there cracked up to be.... I almost wish I was smaller. But your not going too too big.. also I hot saline but would have done silicone now. I hear you dont feel the silicone through your skin as much as saline... good luck with everything
  • Reply
Yes hope all is well after the surgery I just took a little break from things but I have to admit that I am disapointed in the size I ended up a 36C I have a redo scheduled still deciding to do the redo or not
  • Reply
I think yours look great and perfect size for you. Mine feel huge and im not loving that but starting to wonder if were never happy with ourselves. . Who knows but ill deal with mine til I need serviced in 10 years or so lol
  • Reply
Lol lol I think u may be right either too big or too small going crazy over here cause the surgeon offered me a very low price I scheduled the redo on feb 6 so I have plenty of time to think about it then I think if I go too big I don't want to be disproportionate u know i think I'm crazy lol one day I want to do and next I don't idk anymore lol

Yes Def no peeking. Remember they keep forming and softening up as the weeks go on. I actually am starting to like how mine are forming now 6 Weeks later. So that Being said - if you like them now you will love them more as time goes on. ... keep us posted
