21 Y/o Student, 34A to 34C -San Diego, CA

So! I've been on this site quite a bit as it has...

So! I've been on this site quite a bit as it has been tremendously helpful! I'm 21, I waitress part time, while in school to be an RN! I'll start my pre-reqs in the spring of 2015 and transfer to a University a year after that! Due to the next few years being hectic, it lead me to make the decision now to get the boobs I've dreamed of!

I decided to go with Dr. Batra, who had operated on my older sister (who is a mother of 5, nursed all 5, last two were twins!) and her boobs are phenomenal! I literally could not feel a difference between her real tissue and the implant.

My stats are: 21 years old, 5'3, 113lbs, 34" hips, 26" waist, and I wear a 32a bra.
I had my consultation on Monday. Doc confirmed I have asymmetry and suggested high profile silicon. I tried on a 335cc on my left and a 355cc on my right. They felt perfect! I also tried on a 355cc and 375cc but felt that they had a little too much projection for my frame. I want a natural sloped breast that is proportionate with my body. I have a sort of bony chest, toned arms, and semi-broad shoulders. But I also do have a booty too, lol, I'm looking to balance things out! :)

The doctor and nurses suggested that I go with the larger implants due to the sub muscular placement taking away 20cc's. Which made sense to me when I pressed the sizers flushed against my skin you could see the compression reduced the appearance. I was happy! Very pleased, and my mom approved too, lol. Has anyone else had that experience with losing cc's with muscle compression?

My next appointment is for the pre-op consultation on the 19th! I'm so excited! I've been saving for so long and thrilled with the fact that I can pay for the surgery full in cash! It was important to me because I feel like the payments would have been stressful on my student schedule.

I also have read a lot of reviews of women that have waited years before having the BA. I feel like since I'm so young, I have 10+ years before I want to have children, so why wait? One morning I woke up and thought "why the HELL not?" I want it, I'm paying for it, and it's my body! I'm doing this for me! And it's felt great to finally come to terms with myself in that matter! I have 3 sisters and they have been amazingly supportive along with my mom!

Another question is, how did you deal with going back to work/school/seeing distant family? Physically yes, I'm taking two weeks off because I use my upper body a lot at work, but more importantly... socially I guess... Did anyone say anything negative to you about it? Opinionated/critical? That's what I'm most afraid of! I have a lot of (older) regular customers that I see on a weekly basis at work, and my co-workers I've been working with for years, I just don't want to talk about it with them, and I'm afraid that the *obvious* transformation they will see will lead them to say something to me about it! and I just don't know how to politely tell them to mind their own business? I feel like it would be really easy for me to be rude to anyone asking questions or passing judgement. (I'm a bit of a pistol) lol, I don't want to come off that way, I just want to end the conversation before it starts.

So now I'm just finishing up on my finals and prepping for the operation! I've found the list on must-have items for recovery so helpful! If anyone else has any advice, please comment below, it would be so appreciated! I've added a photo of the implants I tried on, and some wish photos. You can also check out my profile to see my pre-op photos. :)

Pre-op went fabuloussss!

Everything was so smooth! I tried on some different sizers, one set was 350cc and 400cc which was too big of a difference and totally noticeable. So then I tried on 350cc and 375cc which was my original choice from the beginning! The nurse and I both agreed that was the most even, proportionate, and comfortable on my frame. I attached some photos of me with the sizers on. I paid in full and now it's time to study for finals, make my bedroom as comfy as possible, and relax! If anyone has any advice on what to do to prepare, or any supplies I should pick up before the surgery would be greatly appreciated! 11 more days!

Post-op

Surgery went smoothly, I was definitely grateful for the xannex my doctor gave me lol I was getting so anxious from being so uncomfortable, rather than just in pain. It's been 4 days, most of the swelling has gone down and now it's mostly bruising that is left. My boobs are super firm and tight they also look very round in shape and still riding high. I just can't wait for them to take more of a natural shape. I haven't tried on different bras yet. Just wearing a stretchy front clasp bra I got from Walmart still. Any advice on the drop&fluff process?

Just uncomfortable!

How do you adjust to your boobs neigh so firm and tight? Massage? It's so uncomfortable!!

Noticing some dropping

Yay! Finally gaining the slope&softness! Got this compression sports bra at Walmart. Fruit of the loom, I think. Anyway, it's my fav.
