I've always been petite as I was a gymnast and lead a very active lifestyle. I am 5'2", 100 pounds, and currently size 32b, 32c in most victoria's secret bras since they run pretty small plus the room the padding takes. I had three consultations back in July and August of this year before I decided on my surgeon. I ultimately decided on the same surgeon who had done my mom's BA a few years back. I would love a look that is naturally fake if that makes sense lol.. maybe a full D or small DD, don't want to be TOO big since I am a smaller person. My surgeon and I have talked a little bit about cc's and I'm not sure what I should do to achieve my goal.. maybe 400cc's, my biggest worry is that they won't be as big as I'd like them to be. I've read countless reviews and I'd hate to end up with boob greed :( Anyways, my pre-op admission/consultation is on December 22nd and then the big day is January 6th!! Only a few more weeks to go
A little less than 7 weeks to go!
Just some pics of me now.. I'm still not completely comfortable with the idea of a totally topless photo of me being on the internet. Even something as harmless as this, you never know what will come back to haunt you later on.. just being a little paranoid LOL
had my pre-op appointment yesterday.. my surgery is officially paid for! also discussed sizes again.. my doctor said 400cc would be pushing it since I'm so tiny that it would not fit well or look good so we agreed 371cc would be better based on my bwd. I just hope that gets me to a D at least.. i was so stuck on the number 400 based on looking at other girls' reviews but i trust my doctor and know he will make me look good. A little more than 2 weeks left :) the anticipation is growing!!
the big day
6 Jan 2015
Day of treatment
just left the house this morning around 4:20am to get to the hospital at 6am and my surgery is scheduled at 7:45am. ironically im not so scared for the surgery itself but a little nervous about the needles and iv and stuff that all comes before when I'm conscious lol.. always been bad with taking blood and what not. still shocked that this is really happening, it's not real to me yet! wish me luck :) I'll try to post afterwards if I'm feeling well.
So I was hoping to have some pics up by today but my PS told me i have to keep my dressing on for at least a couple days so I haven't even had a chance to peek yet.. Added with the struggle of not being to really lift my sweater :/ other than that I've been taking my antiobiotic and percocet that my doctor prescribed to me..not really too much pain just some tightness and I can feel it whenever I try to reach for something or lift myself from laying down. Everyone at the hospital yesterday was wonderful! I'm so glad so far with my decision to do this , just can't wait to see what they look like. I have my first post-op appointment with my PS tomorrow, I'll be sure to post some pics later this week once the dressing comes off :)
3 days post op
So I was finally given the okay to shower so I got to take off the bra for the time being and took advantage of the opportunity and quickly snapped some pics.. Please excuse any discoloration or the pinkish reddish marks thats just some leftover marker from what he drew on me, I know its only three days in and theyre gonna change but I'm already in love they're perfect so far.. I can tell once they properly fall into place they're gonna be exactly what I wanted :) they also seem to look bigger in person than the photos show
almost two weeks
I'm just shy of two weeks now, tomorrow will be the official mark. sorry for not posting sooner but I've had a lot of ups and downs and then I've been so busy getting ready to go back to school and moving in.. since I last posted i have definitely noticed them settling in more and I just saw my doctor on Thursday and he gave me this breast band thing that I have been wearing ever since and its supposed to speed up the dropping a little. I have to wear it all day but get to take it off when I go to sleep so I cherish those moments lol. so far not too bad, my movement ability in my upper body and arms has increased a ton.. my next appointment with my doctor is on the 29th so I will try to update again around that time, other than that just getting a little sad about leaving my family and my boyfriend to live at school (this is my first time living away from home) but I'm sure I'll be fine once I've settled in
I'm about a month post-op now as of Friday, the 6th :) Everything's been going really well, at my last appointment told me I could stop wearing the dreaded breast band so I was really excited about that and I've been taking full advantage of that. He also told me I don't have to wear the support bra at night, just during the day but I still sleep with it.. maybe I've developed a little bit of an attachment to it lol. They've definitely dropped a lot because of the band and every day they're getting a little more squishy and soft which makes me happy. It's been taking forever for the surgical glue to come off of my incisions but they are finally getting clean and don't look very visible in person. I also finally went out on Friday without a bra for the first time, it felt so weird to not have to wear a bra and actually be able to fill a top out.. Well here's a few updated pictures of how they look so far. Can't wait for these months to fly by so I can finally get sized, I'm so curious to find out what I'll end up!

4 months post
It's about four months post-op and I had an appointment with my doctor last month to talk about doing a revision.. I wasn't really happy with the moderate plus profile because I didn't feel like I had much cleavage.. I'm hoping to achieve this look by going bigger and switching to high profile. I am getting a revision in just four days! I'm going with 600ccs, can't wait!
