Should I or Shouldn't I???

I would greatly appreciate any input you ladies would be willing to give me. I'm trying to decide if I should have a BA or not.
Although my breasts are rather deflated looking, they aren't horrible. They're still slightly sexy...in the right lighting. :) My husband clearly likes them, but things definitely aren't the same since my hungry babies got a hold of them. My nipples tend to collapse in on themselves, and when I lift my arms, my breast skin develops folds because the tissue under the surface is lacking. Presently I'm a 36 B-.
Ideally I'd like to be a large B and just regain volume. Oh, and I definitely want to look natural--a good natural though, because I'm pretty natural looking right now! Yeah, I don't want really large, round, high breasts. After meeting with the surgeon and listening to his opinion, I'm thinking 300cc silicone sub muscular.
The reason I'm struggling so much with this decision is because: A) My body is healthy and whole right now and even though I know the surgery is statistically quite safe, I can't help but wonder, "If it's not broken, why fix it?"; and B) I really don't know what I'd end up with once it's over, so it's hard to throw that much money, time and tolerance for pain at something when you're not sure about the end result.
Clearly most women are pleased with their results (97% of you here on RealSelf), and that's why I'd like to hear from you. What was the deciding factor for you? Were there times in the recovery process that you regretted doing it even though you're pleased now? What do you wish you'd known when you were at the deciding stage?
