24yrs 5'9'' No Kids with 415cc Inspira Srf! Much Needed Boobs! Dallas, TX

So last week i did the big jump. This has been a HUGE LONG process. I've looked at a million of girls posts on here and its been SO helpful so i figured i'd give you all my story and hopefully it helps someone else along the way!

So from the top! I'm 24, 5'9'' and 135lbs. I am..was...flat chested. A 32A cup..(i went to Victorias Secret two days before surgery and they measured me a 32C and i laughed because there was NO fucking way i was a C cup. pardon my french.

so i started looking up before and after pictures. after about three weeks of digging and reading reviews i heard the phrase "rapid recovery" and got curious. was there really a way girls were having breast surgery with NO pain? cause the worst thing was hearing about 3 weeks of agonizing pain women had to go through. PLUS i'm a server so its not like i can take a month off of work to writhe in pain.

SO my first consult i saw dr.windle in washington and heres what i learned: not every doctor is looking out for your best interest. dr.windle told me to GO BIG. he said that he would go atleast 550 to balance me out. he said we could go wider than my breast width to fill the gab in my sternum (i have a wide sternum). He was VERY talkative about where i'm from (portland) and when i asked serious questions he brushed them off and gave me a vague answer. he said the only way to go was a shaped textured implant or id look bad. I left there hating my body. His staff was also kinda short and i read a ton of reviews about his staff being mean to girls when they had complications or needed help post-op. he quoted me 8900$ and i didnt feel good so i moved on.

I researched doctors in Dallas. here is all the info i got...the 24hr recovery breast augmentation was started by a dr.tebetts in dallas (he has retired) his wife is the office manager for dr.dueber who he trained. i had many phone calls and emails with her and even a phone call from dr.dueber himself. also in dallas is Dr. Adams who besides the creator is the most documented surgeon on this procedure. he has written multiple medical papers and done many studies on it. His office manager is a lady named Christy. I was in contact with both women for over two months. To be entirely honnest i knew both doctors would do great jobs but no one tells you how important picking the office staff is. because after surgery theyre your first point of contact. they answer your questions, assist you, etc. having someone who can answer your questions and put you at ease when you freak out.

I asked both women for information on questions i had and the answers they gave me ultimately picked for me. I'm scared of complications. I'm scared of ruptures and cancer. I'm scared of picking the wrong implant. I was told textured implants lowered your risk of CC and i went into this SURE i wanted textured sientra implants.

dueber wouldnt use sientra because he belives the company is tanking and selling out. they havent made any more implants. so the warranty wont mean anything in a few years if they dont exist.

adams wont use textured implants on round implants because there is an elevated risk of lymphoma.

i asked both office managers about the lymphoma risks and wanting more info on allergan smooth inspira implants. dr.adams manager christy sent me info, reassured me. mrs.tebbets sent me an email telling me i was being ridiculous if i was even comparing anything to sientra and to be realistic. i told her i wanted information and she told me to go online. That moment i picked dr.adams.

its important to feel comfortable with your surgeon. there is a difference between being comfortable and being besties. dr. adams is like christina yang off greys anatomy. he is blunt. he is confident. he is patient. he is kind. but he isnt going to ask about your fav food or your fav band.

if you arent familiar with 24 hr recovery you cant just pick your size. they pick a size based off of your body and wont let you destroy yourself.

i was told a range from 250-350 and i wanted to cry. i wanted to go like 450. so i obsessively looked at picts of girls with similiar specs pictures to see if i'd be happy with that small.
long story made short because i'm rambling....i got 415. it was the biggest i could go. and i'm SO happy!

now there are a lot of emotions that come with this.

first off i started to hate my body....after night after night of bio oil massages i was happier with them. after we flew to dallas and had my pre op my boyfriend and i hung out around dallas and mid dinner i freaked out. i cried. i shook. i was panicking. i didnt want it. i felt pathetic. i lost my mind.

my boyfriend and my family prayed for me n i woke up way too early n was too tired to panic. i was calm. My IV was painless. the doctor that prepped me was kind and funny. i felt comfortable. the anesthesiologist cames in, had my boyfriend kiss me good bye. and i remember them moving my bed around a corner and then waking up to a new nurse asking if i wanted a snack. she gave me sprite and cheezits. i had boobs.

i have boobs.

10 days!

So.

Still no real pain. Had to get a pregnancy pillow to sleep on my back.

Day two I lifted a little girl and my Incisions bled and I panicked. I thought I gave myself a hematoma. I had a melt down, I posted picts here ask in surgeons if it was normal. Worst idea. It fed into my fear. Only your surgeon can put you at ease. On the other side of it, bandaids are off. Everything is good. Regaining sensitivity and feeling and im getting little zappy feelings.

I was measured a 32DD but I think ive lost swelling now.

Started massages and theyre finally softening up.

getting prettier!

six weeks!

So I can lift and workout n such again with no restraint. Good...because I moved today lol. One incision still has a lil scab where its forcing my disolvable stitch out unfortunately but besides that they're doing great!
