Ever since I was 16 and never grew breasts larger than 32A, I have started dreaming of breast augmentation. I saved through college, but decided that I should probably wait until after I was done having kids to make it worth it. I had my first child at 25, and his 9 ib 5 oz little self ruined my body. I know, they are supposed to be battle scares, but I like pre-baby body better and have mourned it since. My husband has been super sweet and totally supportive in whatever I wanted to do. I amended my request for a BA to a BA, Lift and Tummy Tuck, aka 'Mommy Makeover'. Fast forward a few years. I've had my second (and final) child and he's now 18 months. After losing the baby weight, I was finally ready to start looking for a doctor! I turn 30 on Sept 28 (ugh!) and have sheduled my surgery for October 12th. So exchided as it's been 15 years in the making!

I can't stop reading all the reviews on here and I just want to thank all the women before me who did this and put up there own profile. I am starting to get my list together of what I need to buy but I don't have a list or anything from the doc yet (pre op is Sept 27). Anything you ladies couldn't live without? Appreciate any help!!

OMG! I can't believe 1 month from right now I'll be on the FLAT side like so many others on this sight!! It's coming up so quickly yet it can't get here any faster. Has anyone else felt like that? I can't wait, but I'm worried what I'm going to put my family through.

Well, ONE week from right now I'll be in surgery. I can't believe it's only a week away. I think I'm prepared, but there are always things you forget and I don't think my family knows what they are in for. I got all my meds, bought a cheap recliner, got all the Harry Potter books to read, made lists after lists of things that I need to do (Type-A all the way!). Luckily, my husband is the better cook so I don't have to make meals beforehand like many of you :). Tomorrow we're going to do the pumpkin patch because I don't think I'll be up for it by Halloween. Trying to stay busy but I keep coming back to this site to see how everyone else is doing and my mind just won't turn off.

I keep reading all the profiles of pre-op and everyone is trying to stay in the best shape they can be. Am I the only one who feels like I need to gorge because I shouldn't do it after the surgery. I can't put down the chocolate; HELP!! Halloween candy doesn't help at all!

15 years and I am finally this close! One week can't go by fast enough!

Portland Plastic Surgeon

In June, I went to Dr. Gorin for a consultation. He had the best reviews as wll as named Top Doctor several times by various magazines. The consult was good; he was nice and very straight forward telling me what I could and couldn't achieve. I appreciated his honesty. I hope his hands are magical!
