At 15, I was. 30D/32C, unfortunately I got ill and lost 2stone in weight which I have never been able to recover.
I dropped down to a 32A/B with a slight bit of excess skin and I've wanted a boob job ever since!
I'm almost 3 weeks post op and I can honestly say I do NOT regret this decision one bit. It has changed my life for the better and even though I cannot currently show them off as I'm still in sports bras I can feel my confidence has sky rocketed and it can only get better from here...
3 weeks post op!
Well I've officially hit the 3 week mark! I'm lucky to not really have experienced any pain from my BA but I'd say days 14-21 have been quite challenging. I get phases of itching around the outer sides and even though it only lasts a few minutes it's infuriating.
I think they've settled in to place now but they've still got more fluffing to do. Still quite hard too but I can definitely feel them softening up & I can start to move them around a little now. Once they've fully healed I'm going to have an amazing cleavage!!
I'm in 32D sports bras but I've got to admit they're starting to feel a bit tight. Who says small implants don't go a long way?
My scars still have a slight amount of scabbing of them but that's completely normal :)
I'll do an update with all my previous photos I've taken so I can show my journey so far in a nice little slideshow.
Next update will be at my 1 month anniversary!!
Wow it's gone quick!! Happy 4 week anniversary to me :)
I haven't got much to update really, I've still been lucky enough to not really experience any pain. Sometimes they 'ache' a little when my bra rubs on the incisions (which are now completely scab free) but I can deal with that! The pain is probably about a 2/10 and more annoying than anything.
I've done some comparison photos and you can really see the drop and fluff taking place! I've still got a long way to go but I'm happy so far!!
They're still pretty hard too but they're definitely softening up.
My only regret is not getting my boobs done sooner! I'm really annoyed that Christmas is coming up and I need a whole new selection of bras and bikinis but no one can buy me any because I'm still not sure what size I will be ????
My dad is taking me on his annual Christmas shopping spree to me on the 20th so I'll be 5 weeks and 5 days post op, is it worth taking a gamble and getting some? I'm in a 32D sports bra at the moment and it is quite tight!
Anyway, enjoy the photos and let me know what you think!!
Day 8 v Day 28 drop and fluff
Top photo: Day 8, I'd just had my stutures removed and managed to get my first proper photo! Very alien looking and stuck on to my chest.
Bottom photo: Day 28, looking much more natural! Still a long way to go :)
5 weeks! - trying on bras & chest acne
How is it 5 weeks already?! Time is going soooo quick.
I went shopping today and I couldn't resist the temptation to try on some bras.
I'm not allowed to wear a normal under wired padded bra until week 8 and I'm guessing I'm going to see a lot of changes in the next 3 weeks but hey ho I couldn't resist ????
I originally tried on a 32c tshirt bra ... Way too small! The cup barely covered my boobs.
Bra 2 was a 34D maximiser ... Absolutely huge. I didn't even bother doing the strap up because I could see how big it was on me.
But finally I tried on bra number 3, 32DD balcony bra... Although the straps were too big (I had put them on the tightest) the cup actually fit! I think if I had tried on a 32DD without a funny back it would have fit perfectly but I'm fuming that Primark doesn't sell 32D bras. My new boobs have cost me enough already and now I can't get cheap £6 bras ????
I also started to experience post BA 'chest acne' thankfully and fingers crossed it only lasted a few days but what a gross experience. I'm very lucky to never get spots or suffer from acne so to have these pin prick spots covering my cleavage was torture!
If anyone ever gets this I would recommend keeping the area clean (2/3x daily) and a good exfoliating scrub. I'm also going to avoid bio-oiling my whole boob from now on and just focus on the scars as I think that's what most likely caused the problem.
Anyway, I think that's all for this week! I'll keep you updated on week 6 :)
Wooo I've hit the 6 weeks mark!
I still think I have a lot of dropping and fluffing to go but to be honest I'm sooo happy I wouldn't complain if they stayed this way forever!
I have my 6 week check up in the new year so it'll be more like a 8 week check but hopefully I'll be given the all clear then :)
I tried on all my old bikinis today, I have 8 which are too small and 3 which fit - just! So I'll need to hit the January sales and stock up on new bikinis and bras. It's definitely worth it though.
I think my bikini photos really show what people mean when they say you can 'play your boobs up or down' as the strapless they don't look huge but to me in the halterneck ones they look massive ????
Hope this helps anyone considering small implants!
Merry Christmas everyone I'll update soon.
So I'm 7 weeks post op now.. Woop! ????????
I bought my first 'boobie top' this week. I had to really! I had to return some Christmas presents as the sizes were wrong and they only give store credit so I found this little beauty!
I could NEVER wear tops like this before, they just looked stupid, so now I can't wait to bust this out on holiday and show them off ????
5 more days until I can wear normal bras again. I can't wait to get my work rota for next week so I can plan my bra shopping day. Although it sucks I don't get paid until the 20thbof January so I'm pretty poor right now ????
My next update will be my first official sizing and purchasing of bras. Exciting! I think it will be a 32D but let's see.. I'm hoping to hit the big shopping centre so I can be measured in M&S, VS & wherever else will do it ????
