I went to three consultations on a whim well after having two kids. I wanted to maybe suntan topless. I wasn't particularly unhappy with my breasts till I saw the before pictures AFTER surgery :) I was shocked at how bad they had looked before - Snoopy, anyone? The doctor's pictures were worse than the ones I put up here. It wasn't like I was in the habit of taking pictures of them beforehand and for good reason. One reason I'd shied away was if one implant failed, I didn't want to be lopsided. But the Mentor warranty on silicone implants is phenomenal!
NOTE that women do indeed experience complications that lead to further surgeries so not every situation is a walk in the park. But being afraid of every little possible problem is no way to live life either.
After deciding nahh, I changed my mind within a month and was scheduled for a couple of weeks later.
I didn't have much pain, just odd sensations that can be described on many forums, and I was especially sensitive to noises during sleep which was just a nuisance.
I've shown my frankenboob so you know what to expect the first few weeks or months. And the first two weeks I was in tears a little bit every day, thinking I'd gone too big. It's just a shock/swelling, etc. I had matronly-looking boobs at first.
But by two months, things had settled down and they already looked good. By month eight (where I am now Apr 27, 2011), I am super happy. I realized that though I'm a nice full size, my nursing-stretched skin could have accommodated an even larger implant.
And you know that bikinis are evil. They tend to smash boobs flat and small. Well, I debuted a new bikini recently, and the breasts look modest in a bikini but lovely.
They feel so awesome, and I have to say that since even real perky breasts sag even in your twenties, augmented breasts can be awesome! Fight mother nature!

Oh, and they're mod plus profile

My Doctor: Dustin L. Reid, MD
If you want a doctor who is enthusiastic about what he does, performs many breast augmentations, and shows you realistic outcomes of a variety of breast shapes, go to him. He's not a hand-holder - you have few post-op visits though quick answers to questions via email/phone - I think adding one post-op the day after would be handy and may reduce the number of tears! - but the results are fabulous.
