FINALLY Going to Get NEW BREASTS!!! - Seattle, WA

I'm 33 years old 5'5", 165 lbs, current bra size...

I'm 33 years old 5'5", 165 lbs, current bra size 36 D. My husband and I have decided not to have anymore children so this is my green light to start the search for a Dr to do my breast lift. I developed breasts very early. I had to wear a bra in 4th grade and got teased by all the boys. Sometimes I wouldn't wear a bra so the boys wouldn't tease me and then the girls would tease me and tell me it was "gross" I didn't have a bra on... Kids are so mean! :). Anywho, I kept waiting for my breasts to look "normal" so the nipples were pointing up but they were ALWAYS saggy! When I was 19 I worked at a nursing home and I remember bathing some old ladies and they had nicer breasts than me!! I would be jealous of an 80 year old woman's boobs!!!! I feel like my breasts have held me back so much in my life. They have affected my love life, my marriage, my confidence. I feel like I've never been able to experience what it truly feels like to be a woman. The breasts are such a huge part of femininity. I know this is TMI but I've never been able to make love on top and feel proud and beautiful, I've always wore my bra or had the lights off. Maybe I'm being dramatic but I think a lot of the women on here can relate to me. Also..... My breasts are heavy and the way they droop down it is painful to walk around without my bra on. I just hate my breasts sooooooo much and I soooo hope that I find the right Dr that can help me. I worry my breast will still point down, my nipples won't be high enough or they will still be very differently shaped after surgery. I guess I have very high hopes and don't want to look even worse....Here are some pics of my breasts now. I would like to lose at least 20 lbs and weigh at least 140 when I get my breasts so I have to start dieting as well.

I live near Seattle and I was fortunate to have the top doctor there for breast surgery do my lumpectomy and breast lift one week ago! It is extremely important to get a top notch breast surgeon. I am thrilled with the results and I just got a clean pathology report!!! I love the results of the lift too - 1 week later!!!! It just gets better. Best of luck to you.

This is how different my breasts are...

I wanted to take a pic of breasts with the camera facing me. It's weird how different angles and mirrors can show just how different they are. It makes me so sad to look at this pic cause I haven't seen women on here with breasts this different. I'm so scared I'll still have deformed breasts even after surgery :(

Yeah you're right Ray28...I guess I've always wanted "perfect" breasts and it's just disheartening to come to terms with the realization that even with surgery they will never be perfect. GayleY- I'll have to look on your review to see who your Doc was. Thank you for the advice!

I think like so many of us, that u have to go into it with realistic expectations. They r not perfect to start so they won't b perfect after. I think u will feel that they r better after though. Make sure to discuss your concerns with your PS. Good luck! :)

That is so awesome!! Good for you girl!!

Me having a HUGE PITY PARTY!!

Since I took that pic last night I've been so upset. I really am deformed! I have two arms, two legs and from the outside (with clothes) I look healthy but really I was born with a breast deformity and I've lived with it and dealt with this for so long. My breasts have affected my quality of life sooooo much! Ok so some people may say it's because I let them affect me but those people don't have breasts like me. I have NEVER felt comfortable looking at myself in the mirror naked, NEVER felt comfortable without a bra on, NEVER felt comfortable making love....EVER!!! All because of these ugly breasts....especially my left breast....that one is the deformed one and of course the one my husband (and old b.f's) always gravitated to since they were all right handed...Guess I should have dated lefties... :). I am totally have a pity party right now!!!! I just want to get out all of my frustrations here, a lifetime of frustration has been culminating in me since my breasts starting growing... A friggin lifetime!! IT'S NOT FAIR!!! Why out of all of my friends do I have to be the one with this deformity? And it's not a deformity that is accepted by society. People prob think I am being vain by wanting cosmetic surgery but this has effected my psychosocial health. I wonder if I can get this covered (partially) by insurance? My left breast never developed correctly, it points straight down, I have odd pains in this breast, the nipple is at such a location that it gets pinched by things like my husband elbow when he rolls over in bed or by my clothes when I'm getting dressed it also has a growth that I have had looked at numerous times since I was a senior in highschool and nobody can figure out what it is. I've had like 5 ultrasounds and 1 (very painful) mammogram at the age of 23...and nada info on that damn growth. They just tell me it's not cancerous so just live with it.
Ok what else.....Oh yeah! I have to buy bras with padding since my nipples are always looking down or sideways or one up and one down and it's embarrassing! I just want to be able to wear a cute top and walk down the street with my gorgeous big bosoms, nipples pointing straight ahead demanding the attention of every (attractive) male!!! :) Ok I know that may sound crazy!! But I want so badly for my breasts to match the rest of me. Not saying I'm some super hot woman but I used to be think with long blonde hair and no stretch marks on my belly... I used to work out hard and eat organic and was a strict vegan because I was so conscious of my health. Even back then with my ugly breasts I still at least tried to look good. Now I have had a child (the best thing in my life) and of course my tummy had to get covered in stretch marks so now I have hideous boobs and a tummy that no matter what I do cannnot ever be bikini ready. I feel like "why try" anymore and I just eat now and drink too much wine and I really feel like I am unattractive...that no matter what I do I cannot be beautiful. I will never be able to amaze a man with my gorgeous feminine figure, I will never be able to wear a bikini again and sun bathe and feel comfortable.....
OK I am done I think.
I know much of that is very negative and crazy sounding but I had to get it out. Also I know it may not make sense and it probably has tons of errors but I was rambling.

Please don't say anything mean to me, I feel like this site is a safe place and that I can be vulnerable here. Heck I am already showing you all the thing that has bothered me so much in my life, the thing that even my husband doesn't see. The thing that I am so ashamed and embarrassed of.

When you go for a consult, you will be amazed when you see the Docs before & after pics, just how many women have breasts that are very similar to yours! I was one of them - I am 3 1/2 weeks postop. I had identically the same feeling/issues as you have. I'm 44, and so wish I had done this years ago. I feel so happy..can't quick checking them lol. I had a lift, no implant. I was a 38c, still a C so far. If I end up a B I'm perfectly fine with that. I just wanted pretty perky boobies, not any bigger.

Consult with Dr. Salemy

Hello all!! Well I had a consult with Dr. Salemy of Seattle. He comes to the tri cities every few months to do consults. I've met 3 women who have had their breasts done by him that are clients of mine and they LOVED the results and they all 3 raved about how wonderfully the office treated them so I decided to try him out.
He was extremely kind and warm, he's not awkward and lacking social skills like some docs :). I got very emotional before reveiling my breasts to him and he was understanding and very patient with me. He actually helped me heal a little by the way he responded to my breasts saying that they are NORMAL big ole breasts! Lol
So anywho let's get down to the nitty gritty... He said He would like to do a lift only. Said I have enough of my own tissue that I wouldnt require an implant. Whew! This makes me happy cause healing will be quicker and the cost will be less as well plus it's just one less thing to worry about coming out right.
The price is gonna be around $7,000 and In cool with that too. I will need a breast reduction on the right breast but he is not charging extra for that cause he said it would be very minimal.
This summer is going to be so busy and I have 1 bill I want paid off before I do this so I'm planning for the end of summer... September/October-ish. October 19th is my bday so maybe I'll do it in October for my bday gift!
So excited!!!

I just got mine done by an amazingly GOOD Surgeon!!! Dr Wesley G Wilson in Scottsdale Az!!! he did an amazing job and he was even surprised with how perfectly symmetrical he was able to get them, because usually you can get them pretty close but hard to get them pretty exact!!! people fly In from all over to see him he is worth every penny I spent!!! all his pictures on his website looked amazing and out of the surgeons I had consultations with he had the best bedside manner and I felt going with him was the best decision and I'm so glad I did!!! it's amazing not having to wear a bra and no one being able to notice..lol

What size were you before? What size are you now? Did you opt for the implants? Thanks for sharing:)
I was 38D, and I didn't think they were really horrible and facts my breasts we're still my favorite part of my body but after nursing 3 babies gravity just pull them down some and all surgeons recommended a full lift for the best outcome!! I did implants because I originally was going in for a breast augmentation anyways and I ended up going with 550 cc's that was filled to 600 on the right and 620 on my left!!! I do post my 6th day after surgery picture that I have but I don't know how to post it on here because I don't have a little picture icon like on facebook, but as far as size now I haven't actually went in shop for a bra yet it hasn't quite been 6 weeks but I don't look too different without a bra in clothes than I did before my surgery with a bra
