Hey everyone... So I'm 25 years old 5'2'' and 120lbs with the bra size of a big A small B.. I've considered breast implants since I was 18 years old but every time I get close to seriously getting them I chicken out and decide not to.. My first experience with this was when I was 19 years old my mother offered to pay for half of the cost!!! Other than that she had no other influence in my decision... So I starting doing intense research just to decide it was too risky and maybe it wasn't worth it.
So fast forward a couple years to now, now I'm 25 I have my own money saved up and I decided to consider boobs again more than ever... So I booked a consultation with Dr. Richard Baxter in Seattle on the 22nd of January.. I've been obsessing over it lately pinning boobs on Pinterest, googling information and reading RealSelf stories and reviews...
However the more and more I read the more and more I become skeptical... I don't want to make the wrong decision!!!!!!!! So here's a breakdown of my thought process:
What i LIKE about my boobs now-- Currently I actually like my natural boobs, they look like mini implants.. They're nice and perky and round, actually really appealing naked. My nipple placement is fine, shape is symmetrical..
What i DONT like about my natural boobs-- they don't fill out bathing suit bikini tops and when I wear padded ones if I lift my arms my nipples show, I'm tired of "jimi-rigging" my boobs when I wear revealing dresses/shirts and by jimi-rig I mean wearing sticky gel bras with a push up bra on top maybe using safety pins on clothes so my nipples won't show if I move wrong... I'm tired of my size A bra fitting until I lay down, then it's completely empty and my bra is just sitting there like a hollow mountain on my chest..
Why I'm considering breast implants-- other than the obvious dislikes of my natural boobs above... I want breast implants to feel more womanly, to look better in a bikini, to be able to wear backless dresses/shirts without a bra, to feel fuller up top, to balance out my butt, to make my waist look smaller and if I think of any more i will let you know!!
Worries about getting breast implants-- I'm not completely unfortunate, like I said I do like my breast now, I'm not even terribly insecure about them like most girls on this site. I'm scared if I get them they will turn out deformed or become deformed overtime and I will complete regret my decision and wish I kept what God had blessed me with. I'm scared of the obvious dangers. I don't want to have to get them replaced because I don't know where I will be financially in the next 5 years. I'm worried about loosing my nipple sensation since that's where I get a lot of my sexual pleasure from.. I'm scared they won't turn out how I want them and I'll be stuck with something I really don't like such as high boobs. Worried about sagging after childbirth considering I have no kids now. There's more but I can't think of anymore right now...
Someone please help me, I need someone that felt a similar way about their natural boobs before surgery to tell me how they feel about it years after surgery.. Was it worth it?? Did you have to go back for multiple reconstruction surgeries? Do you ever wish you just kept your natural nice little ones instead if worrying about the upkeep of implants???
In a perfect world I would want to get them done and they turn out just like my natural ones but bigger and never get deformities... If I have to replace them only because they're old not for another reason, I wouldn't mind that.
So today I had my consultation!! They we're really...

So they quoted me $7,935!!!!!!!!!!!! Which is WAY more than I expected... the most I really wanted to spend was 6,000. I guess I am still on the fence about this and I have two days to decide for sure if I want to do this or not...
Going to the consultation made me want them a little more, until I saw the price.. then it went back to being 50/50
Conclusion: FUCK IT! I'm getting boobs!!!!!!!!!!!!
So today is my final consultation where I SEAL THE...

I'm going to spend the next few days praying for good results and thanking God for what he has gave me!! I'm gonna miss these little guys and my nipple sensation if I never get them back!!
I'm gonna try to talk my man into taking some more before pictures this week, even though he wasn't too happy my picture showed up on google image (oops!!) and I will definitely take some good after pictures in different shirts and bras

As for post op day two, the pain in the morning was almost at an 11 on a scale of 1-10 when I was moving around, more like a 6 when I wasn't... Icing it REEEEALLY HELPED THOUGH (thanks nomireboobenvy) as for right now it's still painful to move around but it went down to about an 8 resting an annoying 3.. I was able to pull back my hair, brush my teeth and wash my face all by myself!!
So any who I don't know if I told you guys I ended up going with 350ccs and even though i haven't seen them without being all strapped down, they look like the perfect size, OH YEAH AND I HAVE NIPPLE SENSATION!!!!!! I was reeeeally stoked about that...
Anyways I have grown to love this RealSelf website and thanks so much for all your support you're amazing!!! I'll keep you all updated! Toodles
