I have been going back and forth for years about this decision. Like many of you other ladies I have been teased about being flat or looking like a 12 year old boy. I have wanted boobs even before I hit puberty! I was so excited to to grow boobs when I was younger and feel feminine like a girl! I always thought that since my mom had boobs I would too but now I know that I take after my dads side. Twiggy... and essentially flat.
I have told all of my friends and family about my decision and where I am at. However the one person I have yet to tell is my boyfriend because I am scared that he will try to "protect me from myself" and strongly encourage me not too. I think that is why I have been avoiding telling him. I am a strong christian and I have been struggling with this decision morally. Some days I say screw it! This life is so short and I am ready to feel confident with my body. Other days I worry and feel that I am being selfish. :/
I have been reading everyone else's stories on here for about 4 months now and I am so thankful that I am not alone! Your stories have helped me more than you will ever know and I am so thankful for this website!.
I am 21 years old, 5'8in, and 120pounds. My ribcage measures at 28in. I want my results to be as natural as possible! Currently I am in nursing school. I have not had any children and I would like to breastfeed my children when I have them. Currently I am an A 34 I would like to be a full C eventually.. That is if my doctor believes that my small frame could hold full C's. I am thinking about setting up a consultation with Dr. Salemy. He seems like the best doctor for what I am looking for. I am hoping to get my surgery done in December of this year.
Ladies, I would love some emotional support. Thoughts on how to explain my decision to others who do not agree or understand what it is like to feel insecure about breast size. Thoughts from other Christians. Success stories.. Really anything! Thank you for reading ladies!
First of all I would just like to say THANK YOU to...

Today I have decided that Monday I will "Break the news" to my bf about my plans with my potential upcoming surgery... yikes. I am freaking out. I have been scared for about 19 months to talk to him about this... We live about three hours away from each other but he will be in my town next week. He will be here for about three days Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday staying at a hotel locally working through the days and spending time with me during the afternoon. His opinion means so much to me. If he told me it was the BA or the relationship I would choose him. (He would never make me choose though) If he supports me in this.. I will have nothing left to be on the fence about.. I am learning to accept things that I can not change about others opinions and am ready to stop talking about this and start doing. P.S. I think his parents might pass out if they ever found out hahaha ... oh well!
I am not really sure how to start the conversation but I have thought of a few points I could make throughout our talk.
-This is not a decision I am making on a whim; I have thought long and hard.
-My feelings about BA have not changed since I was a girl even after several years of telling myself no.
-I will be paying for this myself.
-Woman spend hundreds even thousands of dollar on clothes, make-up, hair products, cuts, colors, gym memberships, etc how is this any different.
-I am not getting a BA for purposes of attracting other male attention. I dress conservatively and I want these to be only within a marriage..
-My friends and family all know about my decision and have learned to accept what I would like to do.
-I know that you may not agree with my decision but I hope that you can stand by me when I get this done.
How does this sound so far? Anything thoughts ladies?
Thanks for your input and reading!
I emailed Dr. Salemy's office! Woo that was nerve...

This is what he said:
I got your email about your interest in a breast augmentation so I
wanted to write you back personally to say hello. To answer your
question, the holidays are a very popular time for surgery and many
patients schedule well in advance for their procedure. I'd be happy
to see you anytime and I'll have my patient care coordinator Rebecca
contact you to answer any questions you may have as well as set up a
day and time for a consultation--in the meantime, feel free to call or
email me with any questions you have."
Pretty standard but I was very happy that he took the time to contact me personally.!
I decided I would put some new photos up! One of my special jelly inserts I used to (at least I hope I don't have to continue using them) bra inserts to add a cup size or two! Oh and some standard bra shots!
Two days until the big talk with me man! :////!! ahhh.. Will update on Monday!
Well I did it.. One of the hardest things I had to...

I help lead a youth group for high school kids that usually meets on Monday, all of the other female leaders knew that I was going to be telling him tonight and they were praying for me in my absence so there was no going back!
The word boob job never even left my mouth or breast augmentation.. I literally started off with telling him that since I was 12 I have felt insecure..As soon as I started in I could tell that he knew something was wrong and he looked scared and I felt so nervous and I didn't want to disappoint him so I just started balling... Like snot running from my nose balling. I explained most of the points that I had bulleted before which took a while.. He just held me close and tried to comfort me and tell me that he loved me for how God made me. He asked me how it I would change if I got it done and I told him that I would have a lot more confidence within my self. He asked what the complications were and I told him. He told me that on one hand he wants to make me happy and on the other hand he feels like it would make it look like he wanted me to get them done to other people and that he has to say no because other people might feel that he wanted me too.. or that he would look bad because he didn't stop me to other people. He asked if I wanted to tell his parents... I said no it's not there personal business. He asked who would pay for it, I said me. He asked how my parents feel I told them that my mom and I agree to disagree and that my dad wants to see me happy. He was worried because he knows I already get looks from guys without my boobs and boobs would draw extra attention! I told him.. Well, I already get looks now... If they are going to look at me without the boobs.. an extra inch or two more of boobs isn't going to do a whole lot of damage! Plus I wear padded bras now it might even look relatively the same with a sports bra after the BA. Over all he wasn't super happy about it, but he didn't shut it down. I think he knows that the decision is mine. Now I know he won't shun me for saying yes.. Now I am just giving him some space to think about what I have just downloaded on him! THANK YOU LADIES FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS!
