I am 23 and a mother of 2 wonderful little ones. I have been considering a BA since I was about 18, and realized I wasn't getting any bigger. Then I had my daughter and three years later my son. I breast fed my first for 3 months and my son for 2 weeks.(He was GREEDY and mad my nipples bleed each and every time, even with the help of a lactation specialist and nipple shield). Each time I breast fed my boobs which were originally a 34B/32C would balloon to a 34D. and then deflate to an A/B. UGH! I hated that part. One morning I wake up with Bay Watch cans and the next I have what I call upside down triangle boobs.. you can imagine what that might look like. Anyhow, I am SOOOOO happy I found this web site. I love reading all of your stories and being able to talk to doctors and ask them questions. I have a very supportive husband. He told me he didn't think that I needed boobs, but that he just wants me to be happy. :) We are a very active couple. He is a personal trainer and firemen. I love working out and being outdoors ( I also love to shop which can be a work out too.lol) Because of this I am contemplating getting sub glandular saline or silicone, if the doc thinks I have enough breast tissue. I don't want the implants to distort when I work out. If I don't have enough tissue, I will most likely go for saline unders. I have made three consultations with board certified plastic surgeons in my area. I want to compare what they have to say and personalities so that I can find the best match. I am very analytical or so my husband says, so I'm trying not to drive myself or the doctors crazy, but I can't help but look at it from every angle I can come up with. My first consultation is next Monday! I will let you guys know how it goes. I am hoping to find the right doc my the first week of May at the latest and have my new boobies here by no later then the first week of June!! But only if I am completely sure of the doctor. Other wise.. well the hunt will continue.
Oh about my stats:
23 yrs old
current size:32-34B/C depending
145lbs/ athletic build w/ a booty
my goal size is to be a nice D I think some where between the 400cc-475cc range. I know it may sound a bit large for someone athletic. but I like the look, and that's what good sports bras are for :)
Anyone close to my size feel free to comment and let me know what you ended up with and how you like it!
Yay!! I found my doctor :) I originally was going...

We decided on 550cc silicone sub glandular with breast crease incision.
I had no intention of going that big, but the Dr. has a neat approach and doesn't tell you what size cc you are trying on. He leaves you with the patient coordinator and you just try on sizes til you find the look you love. When the Dr. came back he said they were perfect. Then they told me they were 500 and 550cc's my eyes bugged. lol but it was what I wanted. He said I have an athletic build and we went with HP because the mod plus would be to wide fro my chest.
I am sooo excited. Pre op next Tuesday!
Ladies, if any of you have suggestions on how to pick out the right size sports bra for post op, and such let me know please!
Tomorrow is the pre-op appointment!! I'm so...

I got my blood drawn Saturday, I just read on the paper work that the Dr. has the right to refuse surgery to those who do not get the blood work done and turned in with in two weeks prior to surgery... hopefully I am not to late since surgery is in 7 days. The labs should be back by Wednesday at the latest. Cross fingers that they get there a bit earlier than that and are all good results!!
Blood work is in to the Dr. this am. That was...

I made a hair cut/color appointment for Wednesday to help relax and take my mind off things. :) I also have made sure to get my car in for a oil change and schedule time for friends and family through out the week so that I don't have to explain why I haven't seen people in a while, since I only want to share with close friends and not so much my family. Getting super excited. I can not wait to try on swim suits!
Grocery shopping done, cleaning done, laundry done...

Last call from my RN & only 3 more sleeps!

The nurse also reminded me about showering with antibacterial soap the night before and the morning of. I am so ready for this to be done! She made me feel confident in my choice in my surgeon when she told me that my Dr. was the best at what he does and that she has personally had other BA's and that hers with this Dr. was the best experience/result. Good to know that my nurse trusts the Dr. she works for with her own body.
Another tip, she said that for the best healing to drink at least 2 litters of water the day before surgery, she said it will help me feel my best the day of surgery. Also to heal well she said EAT LOTS OF PROTEIN. She mentioned that after surgery when incisions aren't healing well that it tends to be because the patient is not consuming enough protein for their body to heal properly. She suggested to get protein shakes since you sometimes don't feel like eating meat after surgery.
So I will be heading to the store for some yogurt (prevent yeast infections while on high doses of antibiotics), protein drinks, and a zip front bra.
Ok ladies! time for some dinner :)
two more hours!

I went shopping with two of my girlfriends and they have both said my boobs look huge, but that is what I wanted. I think they are perfect since I have hips and have had two babies. I wanted a womanly figure and that is exactly what Dr. P gave me.
I have my one month Post OP apt on the 19th . Excited to see what the Dr. says about how much more my boobs may change in size or if they have already d&f.
feel free to leave any comments or ask any questions ladies :)
Went Bra shopping!!
