26 Years Old, 5'5", 130 Lbs, Mother of 3 Breastfed Children-ready to Have Boobs!! - Fayetteville, GA

Well, I will begin by saying I AM SO EXCITED to...

Well, I will begin by saying I AM SO EXCITED to finally be getting some tatas!! All the women in my family have larger breast (D to DD) and somehow I was blessed with a 32AA. I kept thinking in high school that my time would come and one day I would grow some of my own.... but that never happened. I was at least a full A before my 3 children, and even got up to a C while breastfeeding, but then they sucked the life out of my breasts! Lol.

I wear extremely padded bras just so I won't feel like a little boy and I'm extremely self conscious when wearing bathing suits. After the last baby, 8 months old now, I have become even more embarrassed of my small breasts because my right breast is slightly larger than the left, not to mention they slope downward now like many boobs do after breastfeeding. Maybe TMI, but I don't even like to take my bra off now while being intimate with my husband!

I knew I wanted a breast augmentation since after my first girls were born (twins) but I never thought I'd actually go through with it because there are so many more important things that I could be spending our money on, but I guess my husband noticed how hard I was being on myself after our last baby was born and he told me to go ahead and set up a consultation!!! (I have amazing man!) I am so extremely excited to finally look like a woman up top, but so nervous and scared at the same time!!

I hope to be a full C to a small D after all is said and done (wishful thinking that I end up more on the D side.)

Consultation

Not much has happened since my last post. I have been extremely anxious and ready to get my new girls. I swear, I am OBSESSED with this site. I research and then research some more. So thankful a site like this is available where we are able to see other women's stories through the good and the bad. I feel like it helps with my journey a lot!

I had my consultation last week with Dr. Gronka. He was fabulous and I feel like the perfect match to do my surgery. I had one other consultation the week before with another doctor but I felt so rushed and like just another number. I know that's essentially all I am so these doctors but I don't want to feel like it! The other doctor pretty much said, "this is the implant type I use, I only go under the breast muscle and only make incisions under the breast." I want to go under the muscle and incision under the breast, but I'd like to at least be able to talk about the other options. This doctor couldn't even give a me price estimate before I left. I had to take his nurses business card and call her. If you don't know how much you charge to perform your surgeries, I'm not sure that I want you opening up my body and putting something in it.

Anywho! Dr. Gronka was a polar opposite experience. Though I could tell that he was busy and had other patients to get to, not once did I feel rushed. He answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. He went through each implant type and process and made suggestions as to which implant he felt would be best on my body type, but ultimately allowed me to choose (we agreed on everything so that may be why it was so easy. LOL!) He was in my price range so before we left my husband went ahead and told the nurse to book me the earliest appointment available. I have my pre op on the 15th and my surgery on the 27th of this month!!! It' all happening so quickly!

My only concern at this point is that I am still lactating (very little but non the less milk does come out) from my last baby. The doctor said that he can tell my breasts are pretty much back to my normal shape and it won't affect anything so I guess I shouldn't worry. They went ahead and scheduled my surgery a week later than their first opening just to give me an extra week to let my milk dry up. I'm so ready!

My shameful excuse of boobies: Pre Op pics

Here they are... my sad, sad girls.

Oh, and btw, my surgery got moved from the 27th to the 29th. Ugh! I was already going crazy having to wait and now I have to add 2 days to that. Oh well. Still just thankful it's even happening.

Pro Op Appointment

I had my prep op yesterday, yay! I'm that much closer to my new additions! It was absolutely nothing like I had imagined. I guess because this is so exciting for me, I was disappointed. I expected more. Lol!

I went in and filled out my paperwork. Kinda scary consenting possible (but extremely unlikely) death! They gave me a packet of pre op and post op info that included my pain meds. I was sooooo happy to see that I was prescribed a Valium before surgery to calm my nerves. I don't know about you ladies, but I am beyond nervous. I've had surgery before but I'm still so scared!

When I was called back, they took me to the nurse's desk so we could discuss medical background and tell me what I can and cannot do until surgery. No more birth control pills... Seriously?! Then I gave my nurse a huge stack of wish boob pictures and we went through each one and picked out my top three and the reasons they were my favorite. At my consultation, I had told my doctor I wanted a full C or small D. Well yesterday I decided I want a small D. A C is completely out now. She said that was a good decision because almost everyone says they wish they had gone just slightly larger. I also told my doctor at the consult that I wanted very natural looking breasts, but yesterday one of my top 3 was a pretty augmented look. I told her that I'd be very happy with either one so surprise me. I'm a horrible decision maker. It's so annoying.

So once my picures were decided on, she pricked my finger to check blood pressure and took pre op pics. That was it. I don't know what exactly I was expecting but it just seemed to go so fast. All of my questions were answered and I know exactly what to expect d day so I can't complain at all. I'm so excited!!!

Oh yeah, one more thing... We didn't even discuss cc's. It was kind of nice because I don't have to stress about a number. As long as he gets me to my desired D cup, I'm happy. They are allowing my husband to come back during surgery to confirm the size of my implants. Happy about that and nervous at the same time. He wants "porn star" size boobs but I trust him and his judgment. Hopefully that doesn't come back and bite me in the a**!

Recovery with baby???

Just finished writing a review and my computer crashed! Ugh! Anyway...

Hi ladies! I am T-minus 1.5 days until surgery day and I am beginning to freak myself out! I'm a stay at home mommy to my twin 7 year olds and a 9 month old and I am starting to worry about recovery with them. My husband is able to stay home with me for the first 3 days but is returning to work on the 4th recovery day. I'm not so much worried about the twins, as they are pretty much able to care for themselves, just the baby has me worried. Hubs is home during the day to help out, but works night shift and I am worried about lifting her in and out of the crib (she is still waking up 1 to 2 times a night.) I've expressed my concerns to my PS and he says that 3 days will be enough time to heal enough to care for her, but after reading so many reviews, I am beginning to 2nd guess this. It seems that most women are feeling back to somewhat normal around the 5th day post op. I have a pretty strong pain tolerance, but I am more worried about healing properly than actually hurting. I don't want to tear my incisions or deform a boob or anything! Any ladies have advice or thoughts?

Surgery Tomorrow!!

Ahh! Sh*t just got real! The nurse just called and confirmed my come in time for 8AM! I cannot believe that this time tomorrow I will be the proud mommy of a new set of twins. I'll be posting my post op pics tomorrow as long as I'm not too "zombified." Wish me luck beauties!

I did it!!

Had surgery this morning! Yay! I arrived at 8 and went straight to the pre op room where the nurse gave me a pregnancy test (thank goodness it was negative! I was so scared since they made me stop taking my birth control.) They went ahead and hooked me up to the IV then rolled me back to the OR. I don't even remember her administering the sleepy medicine. They gave me a gas mask thing and I was out in 20 seconds. I woke up so confused because I guess I forgot I was having surgery! Lol. I told the nurse to give me some more sleepy medicine because it was the best nap I've ever had. She didn't give me medicine, but I did get some sprite and crackers so I could get some pain meds in me. Then they went ahead and discharged me. Got home, took a little nap and here I am now. Had to pee and hubby was taking a nap from working all night so I got up by myself with ease. I was slow, but it didn't hurt or anything. I know tomorrow will be a different day probably, but today so far has been cake. Now, why was I so scared?

New Boobies!

Here are my new girls :) I'm pretty sure I'm having boob greed because they don't look that big to me. Originally we were only going with 400cc's but my PS ended up putting in 500cc's. When I take the bra off they look huge but my hubby yells every time I do so I still haven't gotten that great of a look. I'm allowed to shower today so I'll get some better pics when I take my shower.

1 day post op pics

Here's a couple of pics I took after my shower. I'm happy so far with the shape and everything. Can't wait to see how much better they get after the d&f!!

3 days post op

Okay, am I the only pervert who can't keep her hands off her boobs?!? They're so big and pretty and I just wanna touch them all day long. Lol! I am so excited to see how they look in a couple more weeks. I'm about to kill over in anticipation of buying a new bra and seeing what size I became.

On another note, I am SO freaking bloated from surgery AND I have not gone potty since Friday (it's now Monday afternoon.) Boobs are looking great but the rest of me is looking horrible! Doctor didn't warn me about the extra bloat that sticks around forever. Can't wait to heal enough to get back into working out.

Pain is still almost non existent for me. I've lowered my dose of pain meds and I'm still doing just fine. I've been driving today and picking up my little one and started feeling a bit tight but no pain. As long as I sit and rest while she naps I'm back to normal once she wakes up.

I cannot stress enough how happy I am I went through with this procedure. Boobie blues? Thank goodness not for this girl! I didn't really think that would happen to me anyway. I've been waiting on these bad boys for over 10 years.

Hope all my healing buddies are doing as fantastic as I am!! :)

Ouch!

So I thought I was ready to completely wean myself from all meds today... Boy was I wrong! I'm pretty sure I would have been able to if I didn't have the baby to care for, but having to pick her up on top of other motherly duties proved too much for my new girls. The pain wasn't unbearable, just extremely uncomfortable. Felt like my implants were trying to explode out of my body.

Not much has changed with the appearance if anything at all. Still sitting really high and still swollen. My whole upper body was squishing with fluids but that's pretty much over now. Oh, did I mention 500cc's weigh almost SIX POUNDS!! That's pretty depressing. Lol.

No significant physical changes today so I'll post more pics at a later time. Hope everyone is still doing well!

Boob Greed!!

I know this is absolutely ridiculous, but I am having boob greed! They're pretty ginormous so I know I shouldn't feel this way but they just don't look big enough. So glad my PS put the 500 in instead of the 400 he originally suggested. I'm trying to be patient because I know they still have to d&f l, but I'm scared that the swelling is going to go down and then they are really going to be small. I still love them- don't get me wrong! I just wouldn't have minded if they were slightly bigger.

Question- after stalking so many people's reviews I'm left confused on one thing... Why are some women told to leave their bra on and only remove it for showers and other women are told not to even think about a bra for the first 6 weeks?? My surgeon told me to leave it on to help them stay in propped place while healing yet I can see why surgeons would want no Bea to help d&f. So what's the deal??

Bikini Before and Afters

I cannot express enough how happy this boob job makes me. I am actually embarrassed to show what I used to look like in my bikini tops because I looked so awful. I actually feel like a woman now! Even if my breasts never dropped or fluffed, I'd still be happier with them than I was before. So thankful that this surgery was an option for me! Have I mentioned before how much I love my freakin husband?!

18 days post op?

Wow has it really been that long?! I knew it had been a while since I've updated but dang.

So where to begin? As I've already expressed, I had an easy peasy surgery and recovery. Seriously. I couldn't believe how easy it was. A little after 2 weeks post op I am virtually in no pain. I've been off any kind of pain meds for well over a week. Swelling went down, they are starting to soften and drop. Thank goodness! My doctor didn't specify at my week post op how long I needed to keep my post surgery bra on, so I've moved on to more comfortable sports bras. That was a huge relief.

The last day or so my nipples have been sore but not enough to be concerned. Just really sensitive if touched and if I'm changing clothes and the material brush against them. For all you mommies that have breast fed, it feels almost exactly how it felt when I first started breast feeding and my nipples were getting raw. Same sensation but less intensity. Weird, I know.

Every once in a while I wake with morning boob but almost immediately after getting out of bed and moving it goes away.

Speaking of bed time, I couldn't sleep on my back propped up any longer! It was probably less than a week post op I said screw it, I'm sleeping on my side. So that's what I've been doing. It hurts if I'm not careful so I've been putting a pillow between my boobs to help with the weight of them. It's the little things in life that make me happy. Ahhh, side sleeping! Lol.

I'm still not quite sure what size I ended up. My friend gave me a bunch of her bras that I'm wearing in these pics that no longer fit her. As you can see, I can wear them but I'm pretty much spilling out of them. They're size 34D but Victoria's Secret. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't their sizes run big? So I figure I am probably a 34DD Victoria's Secret or 34D in other bras. Exciting!! I couldn't believe how big my girls are. I thought I was only a C. They just don't look that big to me.

Finding any clothes in my closet that don't make me look like a porn star has been challenging, but I'm not complaining!

Anyway, I've rambled enough. I am still IN LOVE with my boobies in case you were wondering. I was lucky enough to not experience any booby blues what do ever.

Hope all you ladies are doing well!

1+ years post op

Because this site was so helpful for me when I was anticipating my surgery, I figured I'd post a one year photo for all those wondering what it would look like after everything has dropped and settled into place. I am still absolutely in love with my breasts and I have never once regretted my decision to have the surgery. I always say it's the best thing I've ever spent money on. Lol. They no longer feel like foreign objects in my body. They have become part of me and I don't even think about them being fake anymore. I love them!!!!
Fayetteville Plastic Surgeon

I love Dr. Gronka so far!! I've only had my first consultation with him, but I can say that he was extremely professional with me and patient. I went to another consultation with a different doctor first and ruled him out because I felt like I went in the then they were pushing to get me out. If I'm going to be spending thousands of dollars and having a foreign object inserted into my body, I don't want to feel rushed! Dr. Gronka made me feel like I was his only patient at that time and I never once felt like he was rushing me out of his office. He answered all of my questions and then some. His nurse was wonderful as well- informative and down to earth. I felt very comfortable with her. They have been so helpful so far!
