From a very young age, I wasn’t happy with the size of my breasts, this was a result of my own idea of how I should look plus some silly comments from people at an impressionable age. I was a 32 AA but always wore a 32 A bra as I was too embarrassed to buy the correct size, plus you would only really find an AA in the pre-teen section. I found I was unable to wear particular tops/dresses as you needed an ample chest, though this was all in my head, no one ever commented on the size of my breasts or said anything to make me feel like they were small. My bras were without fail padded and once I had found one I liked, I never bought a different style. I got to the point where before I went to University, I cut out all the labels from my bras just in case someone happened to notice. It really was a major deal for me. I had always said that once I had savings, I would pay to have my breasts enlarged. This never changed for me and as soon as I had enough money, I booked myself in for the initial consultation and am now a very happy 32 DD. The only concerns I had before committing was the cost and the thought of having to pay again in 10 years as I was told they have a shelf life. I went to my initial consultation 80% committed and left 100%. Implants do have a shelf life but are only replaced if you have any problems with them so for some women this could be never but for others could be once or twice in a lifetime. As I’m young, I’m likely to have to have them replaced at least once in my lifetime. I spent years researching the pros and cons of breast surgery but my surgeon went into great detail and made sure I understood all the risks before I went in. For me, the benefits have hugely outweighed the risks. People have commented on my confidence without even knowing what I have had done. My entire confidence rested on the size of my breasts, I was lucky to be able to do something about it. I have absolutely no regrets and if anything, wish I had done it sooner. I spent £4,000 but it has changed my life and made me love myself, for me,that is priceless.
