If Nature Gave Me Any Other Imperfection - I'd Go Back! - Omaha, NE

I love my body, I work hard to maintain my body....

I love my body, I work hard to maintain my body. No amount of calorie counting or hours invested in the gym will change my breasts though. I had invested nearly 1000$ in the expensive -bombshell- bras so that everyone already thought I was a Full C Cup (even though I was an AA). I felt like a very attractive young lady but needed a chest to feel like a sexy, mature woman.

I Felt no pain, just tightness, I'd do it again. The only negatives are other peoples' ignorance. That is by far the biggest CON in the world.

Yesterday, I finally made an appearance at my place of work. (when I say made an appearance, I MEAN it. EVERY coworker was counting the days with me until my surgery.) So, go in yesterday. Wearing a tank top with built in bra and low cut, tight shirt. First response from the first 5 people I ran into was "WHY IS THE RIGHT BIGGER THAN THE LEFT?" I was so self-conscious all night after that. But a good friend reminded me that most people are un-educated on how this surgery really goes and I'm only one-week post-op. My advice? Don't go posting it on facebook- Don't tell it to your extended friend's fling. Keep it to a small circle. Then no one has high expectations about anything.

Omaha Plastic Surgeon

Dr Finkle gave me a chest that I only dreamed about! He's very polite so I didn't feel nervous or intimidated at any time. The surgery center is FANTASTIC, didn't know nurses could ever make a person feel so welcome and calm before a surgery. I paid with my own personal check, so i'm unsure about a payment process. I called for my consultation a MONTH in advance but they were ready to have me in a WEEK. I chose my surgery date in the SAME phone call, it could have been as soon as two weeks after my consultation if i chose. I've already recommended him to people! (:

In my head, it felt like forever. It wasnt long. Two months maybe. Im severely right hand dominate, so I blamed the difference on that. Just relax (: you'll be fine by summer, im sure of it!

I have a baby who will be one so I hope after a month or so I can still pick her up. I want to go about 700 - 750cc. I have a very wide chest and broad shoulders dr said I could handle them well but the 2nd dr said my skin couldny handle it. Did you have pain or results you weren't happy with?

Awful stretch marks. I was told it wasnt likely but it totally did even with just 475cc... :( they drive me up the wall... Others say they're not visible but I focus on them! The skin stretching felt like an awful sunburn for a long time :(

So did you do saline or silcone? Did you have any issues with the ba after? I saw dr finkle and daid for my body type he would recommend 800cc under the muscle silicone to get the results I want. I saw a differnt doctor who said there was no way I could go above 400cc cause I barely have breast tissue. So I am trying to see my options and if you had any issues. Do you have any pictures?

Hi Public Nickname,

 

You are right people are just uneducated about how the procedure goes.  With one week post op each breast heals differently... completely normal.  How are you doing now? When people gossip they usually are just jealous because they want one too. :)

I agree keeping it to a small circle. I didn't tell a soul at work as I wanted to keep it private and didn't think it was professional telling people. Plus all the stares, gossip that goes along with that as well, its not worth it. I decided to only tell one family member, couple of friends and my hubby of course. People are now finding out, but after the procedure, now that I know everything went fine and they look good. My PS told me both sides are never going to be the same. I agree with Angie, it's probably just swelling. I think people are not only uneducated but also quick to judge and probably just jealous too! Ignore those people and be proud of what you've done.... I think good on you, and I too would do this again in a heartbeat!

Sounds like one side may be more swollen than the other. Smart to keep it to a small circle, but hard when you're excited and an open person! Thanks for posting here on RealSelf.
