I've thought about this for a long time. I mean like years. Day after day, looking at myself in the mirror and wondering what would it be like to fit my tops the way I desire them to fit. To actually fill up a bikini top or a bra without padding, & feel more sexy and feminine. I'm tired of having inadequate breast and having to wear all the padded bras and inserts. So I've done my research and I came to the conclusion that this is what I want. I have some consultations scheduled for next week. The most important thing to me is not the cost, but finding the right PS. I plan to get the surgery done ASAP so I can be healed and ready for the summer. I'm considering saline smooth round moderate plus profile implants. My current size is about a 34B, or less. I will be sharing my story and posting photos and updates of my journey for all you ladies who are also contemplating breast augmentation.
I'm 5'5 and 140lbs. I've had 2 children.

My post-op appt was quick. First my vitals were checked. Next I met again with my surgeon to discuss size, placement, meds, and any other questions. He wrote me prescriptions for Percocet (pain reliever), Keflex (antibiotic), and Zofran (for nausea). He also took photos. After meeting with the surgeon I met with his assistant for sizing. She was very nice. I tried 400 cc. I liked them but I liked 420 cc more. So that's the size I'm going with. For my body it should put me at nice D cup.
I feel a D cup will help balance out my figure. I have a small waste with wide hips and a natural round Brazilian booty. Lol! I always felt that my butt made up for my inadequate breast. Its not too hard to look good in most clothes especially since VS has bras for enhancement. However, when its time to go to the beach I can't fake it. My bikini tops are empty and that's no fun. All that's about to change in 2013.
So today I will be getting my prescriptions filled. To prepare for my BA I purchased 2 Danskin zipper front sports bras and few other comfortable sports bras. Also antibacterial soap, Arnicare arnica gel, pure unrefined shea butter, Neosporin antibiotic ointment, 2 reusable cold compress packs, saltine crackers, and Gingerale. I can't believe my BA is next Wednesday! Wow. The only thing I'm worried about right now is where I want the incision, under the breast, periareolar, under arm... I have a tan skin complexion and I heal very well. I have to decide by Wednesday.

The day is near and sometimes when I think about it I get excited, and other times I get nervous. I'll just be glad when its done and over. I just want everything to go good like it should. I'm also planning on moving out of Cali no later than May. So I've been packing some stuff now because I know that after my BA I'll be restricted from carrying heavy things until I'm healed. So no box lifting for me after 3/20. I could have waited to have my BA after my move but I wanted to do it now and get it over with. Besides all the good surgeons are getting all booked up. I didn't want to end up with a June or mid July appointment. Summer will be here and I want to be healed, dropped & ready. So anyway I'm just looking forward to my big day. Its crazy how when you know you're getting boobies and you go to the mall you start looking at those cute tops and dresses differently. You can just picture yourself wearing some of those cute tops or swimsuits and you say to yourself, "I'll be able to wear that". Lol!

Well the girls are finally here!!! I feel great just tired. When I arrived to my appointment, I was very nervous. I was greeted by a very nice nurse. She had me change out of my clothing and put it in a locker, then she lead me into the surgery room where she started my IV. I chose IV Sedation rather than General Anesthesia. IV sedation is safe and it allows you to be sleep, feel no pain, and breath on your own. My surgeon came in to confirm my desired incision site, my desired breast size, and he did his drawings. That's really all I remember. Next thing I knew I was awakening in the recovery room all wrapped up. No pain, just slight pressure. Oh and soooo sleepy. A friend drove me home and I slept all the way.
It's not as bad as I thought it would be. Now I'm just feeling exhausted but I feel great. I felt a little sore when the mess wore off but the Percocet works. Well I'll post more info later. I'm sooo tired. I'll add a few post-op pics now and more later when I get some energy.

Getting through the first two days after my breast augmentation was not bad but tough. I know I will feel much better when the swelling goes away and when they finally drop & soften up. Right now I feel like I just gave birth and my breast are engorged with milk. On top of that I have to wear a strap over them to help them drop and it feels annoying. I feel pain when the meds wear off. The pain I feel is mostly tightness in my chest and my back. Stretching helps. I can't wait till I'm 5 weeks post-op.

Today I'm feeling much better. Less pain and the girls are feeling softer. I can move around more freely. I can lift my hands over my head. I've been applying Arnica gel and Bio-Oil daily. I really feel good today.

I don't know if its is normal but I think I've lost my appetite. I get hungry but when I get ready to eat I can only take a few bites and then I don't want it anymore. I felt good yesterday and I was in a good mood. I took my daughter to see a movie and in the middle of the movie my breast began to hurt. They felt so tight. Luckily I had my meds with me. Also, I had trouble sleeping last night. I felt tired but just couldn't stay asleep. Morning boob was horrible this morning. Oh I'll just be glad when the swelling goes away, when I'm completely healed and these things drop & fluff already. Lol!
I'm so glad I did this. I notice changes each day...

Well time sure flies when you're having fun. I can't believe I'm now 24 days post op. My results have gotten even better with time. I've noticed changes each day throughout the healing process. I remember they were riding a bit high. They're dropping and they look great. I'm still glad that I made the decision to have the procedure. I'd do it all over again because for me, it was very well worth it. I'm happy and I love the way I'm able to fit my tops and dresses. I'm loving them and having so much fun! Why didn't I do this sooner? I went out for drinks recently wearing a cute tank top. I felt so confident. There I was with womanly "cleavage" enjoying the night with friends. Lol! Guys will look, women will envy. So what. I did it for me. I like them and they're mine because I paid for them. They're starting to feel softer. I had nipple hypersensitivity for about 2 weeks. It was uncomfortable but its finally starting to subside. I've been applying Shea butter to sooth them. My surgeon cleared me for the gym, just no arm workouts yet. My incisions were under the breast. I've been applying Scar Control (Wholefoods Market) each day and night to help heal and prevent scarring. That stuff really works. I post some new pics later today or tomorrow.

I went to the mall the other day and stepped into Victoria's Secrets. I felt it was time to get sized. I found that I am now officially a 36D. So I purchased a few Body by Victoria wireless bras. Talk about comfort! Finally, I can wear my bras without padding and it feels great! I've posted new pics.

My PS said they would get better with time and they did. The feel soft and look great. I'm still very pleased with my decision to have it done. I would do it again because I love the way they enhance my figure. I remember being very nervous about it before the procedure. I didn't know what to expect. It pays to do your research. Research the procedure, research plastic surgeons, get consultations, and ask questions. Don't go looking for the cheapest surgeon. Look at professional skills, background, ratings, & quality of past procedures. Now I'm just preparing for summertime. I feel absolutely fabulous!
I found my surgeon online. I chose him because of his high ratings, skills, and experience.
