I'm Finally Getting It Done!!!!! Atlanta, GA $5,500 - Stockbridge, GA

I have finally decided to get a BA. I can't wait....

I have finally decided to get a BA. I can't wait. I am 39 years old, 5'7 and 130 lbs. I had my consultation last week and my PS told me that because of my body frame and the thinness of my skin that I can only go 350 cc MAX. I have seen many reviews and have read that women with my body frame and size have gone much larger. We decided to go with the high profile silicone 350 cc for a more natural look. My pre-op is on May 14th and I'd really like to ask my PS if it's possible to go to at least 400cc. He said in the consultation that if I went any larger that I might risk the implants spilling into my armpits. I don't think there's any harm in him taking a few different sizes into surgery and seeing just how much I can take without it looking unnatural. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Only 22 more days! I'm so excited!!! Will talk to...

Only 22 more days! I'm so excited!!! Will talk to my ps on the 14th of May to discuss my implant sizes. I'd really like to go at least 400cc HP silicone.

I am getting so nervous and more uncertain about...

I am getting so nervous and more uncertain about what size implant I should get. I keep reading reviews and looking at post op pics. It's confusing because everyone seems to have different results even if their measurements are similar to mine. I think that I am probably going to go with 400 cc HP silicone implants. I've called my PS and have gone to his office to ask if I could try some sizers on. They told me that I can't do that until my pre-op appt. That's 2 weeks from now. I think I'm driving myself crazy with worry. I don't want to be disappointed that they are too small after I've spent so much money. Am I the only one that has gone through this much worry and anxiety or is this completely normal? I went shopping today to buy sports bras for after my surgery but I have no idea how big I'm going to be. I still have 21 days before my BA. this waiting really stinks.

So I'm 1 week away from my pre op and 2 weeks away...

So I'm 1 week away from my pre op and 2 weeks away from surgery. I couldn't be more uncertain about the size I want to go. I think between 350cc HP and 400cc. I still am so undecided! I wish all you girls out there that have been trough this already can give me some advice. What questions should I ask in my pre op appointment. PLEASE HELP!

Well ladies, I have 9 days until my BA. My pre-op...

Well ladies, I have 9 days until my BA. My pre-op is tomorrow and I have so many questions to ask my PS. I feel so much anxiety over this. I used to feel nothing but excitement but as the day draws nearer I'm quite nervous. I wonder if this is normal. My breast width is 12.5 cm and I think I want to go with 400cc HP rather the the 350cc he suggested at my consult. I called his office today to make sure that they would have the sizers that I want to try on. They told me that my PS won't go with a size that is unhealthy for me which I can respect however, I feel that 400cc's will be ok. We'll see what he says tomorrow. Another thing I worry about is how much more will I weigh once I get the implants. I am very picky about my weight. I have so many questions and feel so much anxiety over all this. I have waited my entire adult life to get implants. Now that it is finally here I feel nothing but uncertainty. Does anyone else feel like this?

So I had my pre op and my PS and I decided on the...

So I had my pre op and my PS and I decided on the Mentor 400cc HP! I'm really excited! I got all my meds and instructions. 8 more days!!!! What else will I need after surgery? Any suggestions?

Well 7 more days!!! I posted some more before pics...

Well 7 more days!!! I posted some more before pics and a couple with 375cc rice sizers. I like the look at 375 and with my 400cc HP going under the muscle I'll lose about 10% so I'll be just a tad bigger than these photos I'm thinking! I can't wait!!!! Anyone else getting their BA next week?

Two more days!!!!!

So, two more nights and I wake up to get my BA!!!! I'm nervous and excited!!!! I am going 400cc Mentor HP! I hope this will make me a full C small D. Only time will tell now. I have all my prescriptions and supplies that I need for after surgery. Surgery is at 12:30 on Wednesday. I bought several bras for after surgery. I got the Ahh bra and the Genie bra and quite a few other sports bras. My surgeon is sending me home in a surgical bra that he says I'll have to wear 24/7 for three weeks. I hope I can still wear my dresses for work without it showing. Oh, I am sooooo excited! I will post after pics as soon as possible. Good luck to all you ladies going into surgery this week. See you on the other side!!! :-)

20 more hours to go!!!!

So, I have pretty much finished up work for the day and I can't believe it's the night before. I am so nervous and excited. I'm more nervous about the pain afterwards than anything. I know I've had 4 kids and three of them were c-sections so I should be able to handle this right? I have everything ready to go. Meds, supplies, new bras....now all I need are the boobs! Most everyone that knows me knows that I am getting a BA and everyone has been super supportive. My only concern is going out into public around acquaintances. My kids last week of school is next week and I have to attend some end of school activities. I'm a little nervous about the stares that I'm sure I'm going to get. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with going out into public right after their BA?

Today is the day!!!!

So, I slept ok. I had planned on sleeping in until 8am but here I am at 6am and I can't go back to sleep. I don't have to be to the surgery center until 12:30 pm. Surprisingly, I am calm and not nervous. Just ready to get this done and over with. I hate that I can't have my morning coffee. If I feel up to it today I'll post after pics. Wish me luck ladies....see you on the other side.

1day post op.....interesting.....

So, they are settling in nicely. Are they big enough? I'm still uncertain!!!!

What a whirlwind of emotions....

What a whirlwind of emotions I have been through over the past week. I was not prepared for the emotional ups and downs that I would be experiencing after this surgery. Let me start by saying that surgery went well and flawless. When I woke up I was in the most extreme pain and I could barely breathe. I had to eat 7 crackers before I could take my pain meds. The ride home was horrible. Every bump and turn was extremely painful. I went to my boyfriends moms house and went to bed until the following day. Surprisingly I felt a ton better the next day and was up and about talking and moving around quite well. Then on Friday it all caught up to me and I was throwing up uncontrollably and had body aches everywhere and a low grade fever. I called my PS and he assured me that everything was fine and to call him should I have any more problems. THe next day I wanted to go home so I could be in my own house. My boyfriend took me to his house where I stayed through the weekend. I was able to get up and around pretty well but by Monday I was vomiting again and I still hadn't been able to go to the bathroom even after the stool softeners that I took. Every day has been an emotional roller coaster for me. I have asked myself over and over why did I do this to myself and how could I have put myself through this. Not to mention the implants feel so foreign to me and all I can say is I want to feel normal again. Has anyone felt this way before? I haven't gotten to the point where I feel like it's worth it yet. All my friends say that I look great and that I look very natural. As a whole I feel satisfied with my results I just want to get off of this emotional roller coaster of second guessing my decision.

Just added new pics

Things are getting better. I'm starting to feel more comfortable with my new look but I have to say I'm 9 days post op and I'm still pretty exhausted and drained. I also think I gained a few pounds however I'm happy to say that I'm starting to feel like its all going to be worth it. I haven't gotten any comments from anyone on my results. Should I be insulted? Lol!

2 weeks post op

So I'm two weeks post op and I'm getting much better! I think the girls look much better with each passing day and I'm very happy with the results.
