After years and years of considering this procedure, months of research and surgeon interviews, I'm finally taking the plunge and have scheduled my breast augmentation with Dr. Jason Leedy of Cleveland Plastic Surgery. My surgery is paid in full and scheduled for May 31st. I couldn't be more excited/nervous/terrified/elated!
There was a time when I was pretty happy with my boobs, and that's when I was on birth control; they were plump, luscious and pretty big (full 36D/34D). After quitting birth control and really taking control of my diet and exercise regimen, I've slimmed down majorly, and my boobs have disappeared. While I still wear the same bra size (shocking; I know), my breasts are completely deflated and seem to have lost all of their stuffing. I don't recall ever really having what one might call "perky" boobs, but I've always loved them and don't want to change anything about their shape or position, only the size.
Though many physicians would and have said that I need a lift, or am borderline, I've opted not to at this time, as I believe my expectations fall well in line with the probable outcome. I'm not sure if I'll be having children, but I'm definitely open to a necessary future lift if I feel I need it. I just wanted bigger, softer, luscious womanly breasts, and in nature, those sag a little! (And I like that :).
I have full faith in my surgeon, his current and past patients, and the countless examples of his stellar work. We're currently looking at Mentor round silicone implants, mod + or perhaps HP (scary! Lol), in the 400 cc -- 470 cc range. I'm pretty nervous about the size, as I want them to be big enough to fill in my loose skin and displace the tissue enough, but I'm afraid of looking top heavy, as I have a slim-ish profile that I've come to enjoy. I believe we will select the final size at my pre-op appointment on May 20th.
Anyway, please feel free to comment advice or ask questions! This site/community has been one of the most helpful tools in this process :).
