I've watched my breasts go from a 34A to a 38DD (was pregnant w/ twins), then by 5 months post babies was back down to a 34B. Then the same month got pregnant again and went to a 38D. Then 7 mths after baby, went down to a 34A again! My boobies had, had ENOUGH!
I never felt good about my breasts after having babies. Obviously they were destroyed throughout both of my pregnancies, along w/ nursing 3 babies. But when I lost a great deal of weight after my 3rd baby, I was left with LOTS of stretched skin, not a whole lot of breast tissue and a bony chest. :/
It affected me in every way. Fitting into a bra, a bathing suit, a dress. Being intimate with my husband. I found myself wanting to hide them, every chance I got! It didn't fit ME, when I looked at my body in the mirror. I was young, beautiful, in shape, and then there were these saggy, stretched out boobies.
So I decided to make a change. A breast augmentation.
My PS was amazing and we went with Saline implants, I had about 350cc's in each breast. One may have slightly more than the other, since breasts are sisters...not twins ;)
My incision was in my armpit, which is my surgeons preference. And it was the best location too! Hidden and it healed really nice!
My discomfort was very minimal! I felt tight in the chest, couldn't lift my arms really for the first few days. Every day I got more mobility. But it was once the stitches came out in my armpit, that I really got ALL my mobility back! Those stitches really hinder movement and were kind of annoying actually.
I only took pain medication the first day I was home. Then I took a few ibuprofen and within a day or two I didn't need anything.
I had a binder type of thing wrapped around my breasts when I woke up in recovery and I kept that on for a few days. I had quite a bit of swelling at first, but every day it got better! It took a few weeks for them to drop and round out nicely. They looked like cones at first! But once the swelling dissipated, they became nice and round!
The BEST part about my BA is how natural they look! They aren't too high, so they look like I was born with them!
It's amazing how good I felt after my BA. I felt sexy and confident. It changed my whole perspective about my body and how I felt in clothes, in a bathing suit and most importantly how I felt when I was with my husband!
This is one cosmetic surgery that really makes you feel "womanly". At least for me. Having had various sized breasts throughout the past few years, I always felt the most confident and womanly, when my breasts were fuller. When my breasts were saggy and flat, I just felt like a boy! :/ Not anymore! I love my new boobies!! :)
