After lots of research (aka stalking) on this site I have finally decided to write my own profile. I am a mother of two grown children and soon to be a Grammy to 5 beautiful grandbabies. I am 44 yrs. 5' 138 lbs. All my life I have been blessed with nice curves on the lower half, my friends call it my ghetto booty. However, I have always been lacking in the breast department.
All the women in my family are blessed with large breast. We used to tease our Mom that she saved it all for our little sister. Lets just say Lil Sister (10 yrs younger) started developing in elementary and well she quickly left me in the dust.
I have never really given much thought to a BA until the last few years. I never thought I would even consider it nor could I have afforded it before. Choices I made early on in life effected my self esteem. I suffered with low self esteem for majority of my life. I reached a point where I knew I needed to take my life back and make something of myself for my children' sake. I did just that!! Now I am doing this for ME. I have always done for others and well it is time for something only I can do for myself. My motivation is that I would like to feel confident and sexy in my clothes.
My boyfriend, is super supportive!! Lets just say he was on board from the start, lol. He picked out his size right away( he is paying for half so I told him he could choose the size for one of them, lol) I on the other hand have had such a hard time choosing.
The PS I choose came highly recommended by a good friend who is a nurse. He also did her BA over 13 yrs ago and they still look great. At my initial consult he and his staff spent at least 2 hrs with us. I came in with lots of questions ( that I learned from this site) and left with each and every one of them answered. I had my pre op on Feb 14. I provided him with photos ( 3 women from here... thanks ladies) as my reference photos.
My surgery date is Tuesday March 5 at 8 a.m. I would like to end up being 36 D ish.
As "The Day" gets closer my nerves are on the craziest rollercoaster ride!! One day I am calm then the next my head is filled with concerns and doubt. When doubt comes around I log in here and fell reassured that what I am doing is right for me. Lucky for me I am throwing my BFF a surprise party for her BDay this weekend, that should keep my mind of it at least until Monday.
I will post before and after pics soon.
I am excited to share my journey with others who are considering a BA. Thanks again for all the information, knowledge and support!! Please feel free to ask any questions I will do my best to respond.
