I am a 21 year of female from South Africa who has never needed bigger boobs until after I had and then lost my son at 6 months old to cot death. I then suffered extreme bulimia causing me to drop from 65kgs to 40kgs in a matter of 4 months. Now That I am fully recovered I have been on a quest to get my boobs back to what they were pre- pregnancy ( Full, perky and sexy ).
I am 1.69m tall (5.5ft) and now weigh a healthy 57kgs.
I am hoping to get my surgery done in September. My doctor recommended that I do not go bigger then 325cc, but I am really unsure as I do not want to regret it after a few months and wish that I had gone bigger.
Anyway, I will keep you all updated. I have uploaded a few pictures on myself today and how empty my boobs are looking.
I have no idea when my actually surgery date is and I would like to share why with some ladies on here as it may help. I won't say that that I have been under privileged, but I honestly do not have the money to pay for a breast augmentation. So I went on a quest, trying to find students who needed people to do their practicals on. Unfortunately I did not find anyone in SA.
I did however come across a site called myfreeimplants.com. It is an online community where people (both men and woman) donate money towards your goal amount for your surgery. You can earn donations in many ways. Some girls even go the nude route and sell explicit content to reach their goal faster. Fortunately there are girls, like myself, that do not take part in that. I raised my amount with selling my photosets from modelling shoots and then also by making a whole lot of virtual friends who genuinely wanted to help me.
I reached my goal in 4 Months after joining on the 16th of June 2014. I however have to wait because of clauses on the site. The first wait is that of the 30 day wait until you can download the model agreement, which you have to sign and send to the US. Then only once they receive your documents ( which takes up to about 2 weeks depending on where about you are ), they will do an account review to make sure you have not gone against rules and regulations ( takes about 10 days ). When the review is complete, they will issue you with a document that states when your money will be paid to your plastic surgeon ( to assure you get the surgery ). Only then will you be able to book for your surgery.
At the moment I am in the stage of my account review. It started on Saturday. Hopefully I will know by this time next week when I can book for my surgery.
Anyway I hope this helps some girls that need a bit of help funding wise. The wait sucks and it can be a bit time consuming, but it is worth it in the end. I will keep you updated.
I hope everyone has a lovely Thursday. XoXo
MFI account review completed
I am really really excited that my account review has been completed on MFI and that I now have a estimate of when I can have my surgery done. I am looking at the end of September.
I am going to be honest I am a little confused at the moment and I am not so sure if I want to even go ahead with it. I have an addiction for buying underwear and I own about 30 bras ( yes I know "SHOCKING"). I do not want to get rid of my bras after my BA but it is a must. It just means I am going to have to start all over again. Have any other ladies ever felt the same way? Or is this just me being odd again?
Some Before photos
Just a couple pictures before my surgery next week.
When I arrived at the plastic surgeon for my my pre-op, he went over everything I needed to do before my surgery. I also asked him if we could discuss sizing again. I told him that I wanted to go a bit bigger because I have read a lot of reviews where woman have stated that they wish that they had gotten a bigger CC and are a little disappointing. He agreed and said that he would do some more measurements to see what he could do. He marked around my breast with this funky blue marker ( I actually thought it was pretty cool). Once he was done, he told me that the largest that he would be able to fit is a 360CC as that is all the space I have. i asked him if he had some of the implants for me to try on. At first he gave me the 325CC and they looked nice with a T-shirt on and then I realised that It is not like if am not happy with the size, that I can just come back a week later and say I want them bigger. He unfortunately didn't have any 360CC implants, but I tried on a 400CC and a 385CC and in my opinion they were way to big for me. and I honestly didn't like them at all. So I decided to go for the 360CC. When I asked about the scarring he said that it might end up being a big longer ( about 6 cm ) because I had chosen a bigger implant, which I was not to worried about ( its not like I am going to try hide the fact I have implants ). Once we were done , I went and spoke to the lady that does all the financing and she told me that the payment had come through for the surgery and that I was ready to go, she also gave me some forms to fill in and told me that I needed to take them into the hospital on Wednesday morning.
1 and a half days till BA!!! and getting scared
I wont lie, I am really nervous about my BA on Wednesday. II went to the beach today with my mom and they was this lady there and you could clearly see that she had had a boob job. In my opinion it looked horrible they were too big for her body and they were also extremely far apart. I wanted to ask her what CC she had gottten but I was too scared as she might have thought I was rude. Anywya seeing this has made me really question if maybe 360CC will be too much for me and that I might not feel comfortable. Please help me??? I am really really scared because I do not want to regret it.
1 day post op.
Wow! It is one day post op and I am feeling really really sore. Got my drain removed this morning and it was painful. I bleed a lot. Urg. When I am feeling a bit better I will let you know about my experience yesterday. In the mean time, I am posting a few pictures. Let me know what you think? I am feeling as if they are too big :( :( :(
Day 2 post op. very very concerned.
The swelling has gotten so much worse and I am feeling terrible. Does everyone experience this? Or is it just me??? Please help
Thought I would give the whole video thing a try. I am feeling sooooo much better and starting to love my boobs.
Seen as the first videon didn't update. Hopefully this one will.
Ok...... So hopefully this one will work as I am doing it from my laptop this time and not my phone haha.
8 days post-op and feeling a ton better!
i cant believe its already 8 days post-op. I am not going to lie, i am feeling sooo much better. The swelling has gone down a bit but is still there. I am pretty mobile though, I am now able to bath myself and get dressed without any help.
The pictures I have posted are from 6 days post-op. I absolutely love how they look in my crop top!
19 days post-op
WOW. I am feeling so much better and I am actually loving my boobies. The are looking great and I am having fun. Even though I know I have to wear sports bras for the next 3 months, it didn't stop me from going to try on a bra over the weekend. It is a 32 D. What do you ladies think? does it fit nicely?
I have also taking pictures of my scars, they seem to be healing well for not even 3 weeks post op.
21 days post-op
I am now 3 weeks post-op and feeling really unsure about my sizing. What is your opinion? hopefully I will get through this phase quickly.
Pics a month post-op
it is now 34 days post op and i am still not loving my boobs at all. When I am in cloths it just feels like I am wearing super padded bra and that i am lacking that "WOW' factor. on the other hand, when I am naked, they feel way to big on me and that they are to big for my body. I am in such two minds about it. maybe it will be different when I can start to wear a normal bra. Anyway, here are some pictures of what they are looking like. What is your opinion???
Almost 7 weeks.
So it is close to seven weeks post op. I am back at gym and absolutely loving it. I am posting pics of what they are looking like in clothes. I will post others after 7 weeks so you can see that comparison in my progress.
3 moths post-op update

Wow so it has been three months and I can officially wear normal underwire bras now. I am really happy about that because i can actually wear cloths now that show off my assets.
I have added some pictures of my boobs today. let me know what you think and how i am progressing.
