Puberty Was Disappointing to Say the Least. Finally Taking the Plunge and Getting the Bewbies I've Always Wanted - Palo Alto, CA

I am Chinese, 28 years old, 5'4", mother of a nine year-old, and have an athletic build. Ever since I can remember, I have always loved breasts. I have always joked around about getting a "boob job" since I was a teenager, but never thought I would actually do it. How "selfish" and "vain" would that be, right!? As well as, how could I ever spend that much money on myself!? My fiancé (who loves my body)) actually talked me into finally making a consultation locally in Southern Oregon (2 hours away) to meet with a plastic surgeon. I consulted with Doctor #1 in March, loved him and was obsessed with getting them. I remember being almost in tears when i was trying on the sizers, and having the realization that I could REALLY make it a reality if I wanted to. The obsession however got put on the back burner for a few months, and it wasn't until early August I had another consult with Doctor #2, also in Southern Oregon. I was instantly on boobie fever, and thought of nothing else. I contemplated and obsessed with placement of implant, and which doctor to go with. The doctors were both amazing, but I still felt uneasy. After all, this was a HUGE decision for me, and it would change my body forever. I had a friend of a friend refer me to Dr. Ben Maser of Palo Alto, CA. I booked the soonest consultation they had, (the end of August) had my consultation, and scheduled my surgery the same day. I couldn't believe it! (I'm a gal with commitment issues. Ha!) I loved their staff, and felt at ease meeting with Dr. Maser. He answered all my questions thoroughly, and I truly did not feel like he was just trying to sell himself, and had my goals and best interest in mind. It has been a looong couple of months anticipating this surgery. I've even went back and contemplated canceling, and going with one of the first two doctors I met with due to cost and travel, as it would be a 7-hour car ride. I really think i had too much time to think, and over analyze! However, I stuck with my initial decision, and my date is next Friday! I can hardly believe it. There has been much sleep deprivation, and anxiety leading up to now, but at this point I just want to get it done already. Lol. I've personally talked to at least 10 different woman about their journeys. I have felt multiple sets of breasts, silicone and saline, under and overs. I am ready! :D I plan to get silicone gel implants, under the muscle, inframmary incision. They will be between 300-350 CC's as the doctor will be making the final decision in the operating room.

Thanks so much ladies for taking the time to stop in, and be a part of my journey. XO. This is an amazing community.

I can hardly believe the day is almost here!...

I can hardly believe the day is almost here! Surprisingly enough, I've slept just fine. It's been much better than my insomnia I was having weeks ago!? Good luck, and happy boobies to all the ladies out there! Ha!

Had my surgery yesterday at 4:00. I tell ya, the anticipation, and nervousness was by far the worst part! I felt pretty good all day today, just super sore and tight. The girls are riding high, as expected. I will update more later, as well as post some post-op pictures. Happy healing to all you ladies out there!

Today is Day 5, post surgery and I surprisingly feel great! Everyday just gets better and better. The pain the last few days has been manageable with just ibuprofen. The girls are settling slowly, but surely. I can see the subtle differences from day to day, so exciting! I can hardly wait to see the end result! What a journey this has been.

I feel like a little girl who got the bike she always wanted for Christmas, but it's missing the handle bars! Ha! I want these girls to drop...patience is a virtue, no? On another note...I'm not a back sleeper, but have been sleeping rather well on my back. Had my one week post-op appointment yesterday, and the doctor said I could sleep on my side if i wanted to. However, it feels like my boob is going to slide off my chest if I do! So, sleeping on my back is just fine...lol. I also got the okay to sleep without a bra at night--it's amazing to take it off. Ahhh... I have never known the meaning or relief of taking off the bra 'til now. Ha! Anyway, hope everyone had a happy holiday!
Bay Area Plastic Surgeon

I was referred to him by a friend of a friend. He was my third doctor I had consulted with. He was very personable, and professional. I truly feel like he has my goals and best interest in mind. Dr. Maser was never in a rush to talk to me. He truly cares about his patients, their feelings and concerns.
