48 Year Old Mum of 2 Wanting my Boobs Back! - London, GB

Well I have never done anything like this before...

Well I have never done anything like this before so here goes nothing. I am having my boobs reinvigorated at the end of August. I have shortlisted 2 surgeons. They are advising different things so I am in a bit of a fizz.

They both agree that they should be over the muscle but it the size and type of implant. One is suggesting a round 275 or 300 Nagor gel implant and the other is suggesting a 220 anatomical polyurethane coated gel implant ( possibility of one slightly big as I have a slight mis match in sizing)

Would welcome thoughts of polyurethane v the nagors . I am not so worried about the size as such - I just want to achieve a very natural look but am a bit confused I must admit. I am 5'3 and 60 kg and currently wear a 32B cup. I would like to be a fully cup. All thoughts and feedback welcome!

Decision made and surgery booked

So all done. I am booked for 30 August and will be having the Nagor implants over the muscle. Only thing to be decided is the size (275 or 300) which I have entrusted to the surgeon who will decide which looks better and will give the most natural look. Am very excited but am sure the nerves will kick in closer to the date.

Paid and ready to go

So I have made final payment. I am still terribly excited and obsessed with site. My husband says he has never know a woman look at so many other people's boobs but I have explained that this is 'quite normal'
Will post before pictures so that I have a record of just how sad the girls look now. Am travelling at the moment but will defo do it before surgery on 30th

Also very obsessed with size. Options are 265 or 300cc moderate profile textured and over the muscle. Having read so much about 'boob greed' I am thinking 300 as then I know I have gone as big as I could to achieve a natural look. Ah well let's see!

Anyone else about to have or recently had surgery with Adrian Richards from Aurora?

Would love to hear from anyone who has recently had it is having surgery with Mr Richards if you are out there!

Two weeks to go!!

So with just two weeks to go I thought I would share my two sad girls!
Opinions on size would be welcome! 275 or 300 round textured overs. I want a really natural look and feel and don't want two things that look like they have been stuck on! My girls just need some oomph!
Thanks to all in the community - it is so helpful to hear from you and to get your updates

11 days and counting...

Patience is not my forte! I am driving my husband mad with the count down!
Had a wobble on sizing and worried I was not going big enough so had a chat with PS assistant who did my sizing session with me. She thinks the next size up 330 will possibly risk a less than natural result which is my aim. To be safe ordered 3 sizes and we can have another look on surgery day. Ultimately PS has my consent to try them all and decide which will give me the result that gets closest to my wish boobs.
This website is a godsend!!

48 hours to go!

Am counting the hours. A couple of bikini shots so we can compare post op!! One has no padding ( bet u can guess which one!) the other with plenty of padding! Lol

At hospital and scheduled for 10.30

Last picture of the old girls with lots of markings. PS says his gut feeling is 300 but he has all 3 sizes and will see what looks best. He will use the pictures I gave him as a guide ... Now I wait! Have horrible headache as am dehydrated but otherwise feel fine. I am sure I should feel nervous but nothing yet....

I have reached Boobie heaven!

So I went down to surgery at 11am and woke up with Adrian and the nurse next to me at 12.40.

Just left the hospital and am staying in a hotel until Friday with hubby to recoup.

I feel fine - a bit light headed still from the GA. have eaten etc so that should improve. Pain is fine but obviously still full of meds. Am not going to be a hero and will take the pain relief as instructed for first week.

A couple of early pics. Will post more tomoz. I love them already! Ended up with 300's which is where I assumed we would get too. Adrian was gray and took my wish boob pics into theatre so he could have a look at me with the sizers etc.

Hope those of you I have been talking with and who had their Ba today are all good and recovering. Also thank you to all you ladies who have been supporting through out and sharing your stories. I hope you are all continuing to recover well also.

I am sooooo happy!! ????

Photos - trouble uploading

Can't get them to load for some reason! Will try again

Trying again for pucd

Hope this works

1st sneaky peak!

So here are the two new girls. They look swollen and high ( no big suprieses thanks to you guys I knew what to expect!). But despite their ugliness I do love them and they are what I wanted!! Now I need to rest up so that they heal.

A shower never felt sooo good

Allowed to shower this morning and it was lovely! Also managed to wash my hair so feeling so much nicer.

Still taking pain relief as instructed. Paracetamol during day and codeine at night. Sleeping is okay but my lower back is aching a bit. Hoping that I can achieve a better sleeping isotope in days to come.
All in all going okay. The odd shooting pain and when I woke this morning a bit of burning in the area of my incisions but that went pretty quickly.

Some pictures post shower. They are so shiny they scare me! Obviously really high and swollen but I can see that when they settle they could look really good. Like the way they make my waist look smaller and fit with my hips and balance me out. Let's see...

Well I was warned!

Day 3 - ouch! Things a lot more tender this morning. Going to keep on top of pain relief for the next couple of days and take it really easy! Going home today so am a bit apprehensive about how I am going to keep this under wraps if I am in dis comfort! I will come up with something!! Still jet lagged or just plain tired ;)

Other than the increased pain ( which is about 5/10) and which I take as a positive healing sign , things are much the same. I will take a look later this morning as to any changes and update pictures. I think that will help me map progress and stay patient even if it's terribly dull for you ladies. Sorry!

To add to the pot - I get my period today! It's not due for another 10 days but maybe the surgery has just got me out of kilter! That's probably not helping with the tenderness.

Hope everyone else is going well particularly my surgery date buddies and those who are in their first few days.

Day 5

Much better today. A bit of morning boob but otherwise all good.
I am sleeping through without pain relief except for the ones I take before bed. Just paracetamol now. Off the codeine for two days.
Am still being careful not to over do it as want to make sure don't do anything silly. I am travelling on 18 September ( with ps blessing) but want to ensure that I am doing everything I can to speed a good recovery.
The only moan is the bloating. It's like my tummy muscles have given up! I am sure it will be fine but I don't want my tummy sticking out. I have tried to hide it in the pics. Lol!

Back to work today...

I had my check up with the nurse yesterday. They are looking good. I am pain free and no meds now for 2 days. Zingers in the morning and a bit of discomfort by the end of the day but that's it. Will post incision pics but they are tiny! Nurses words not mine and tight in the crease so am super pleased.
Will post again after I get through day one! Hope everyone else is doing okay and healing well!

11 days post

Well things are continuing to go really well. I have been back at work for 3 days and that has been fine. The most uncomfortable bit is the bra - need to get some others that are more comfy!
They are also softening up. My left side more than my right. The right is still higher and harder. Keep thinking something is wrong but I know that's not rational.
Pictures of my girls this morning. Plus the scars. There is a load of sticky stuff on scars so I think they look worse. They are tidy and in the crease so hope they will continue to improve.
Otherwise all back to normal. My hubby won't take a look at them but I think it's cos he is a bit afraid they will look awful. His loss as he does not know what he has in store. Am tempted to flash them at him but afraid may give him heart attack! Lol
Hope everyone else is okay.

Still making progress

Softening up every day. Had a bit of a panic when I read about bottoming out. I don't think I am but am now worried that have mistaken progress in dropping! What do you think? I have attached pictures including scars . They are not in the crease completely but I can't tell ??

Three weeks post op

I am travelling for work at the moment and I was worried it was too soon but I have forgotten my girls are not mine by birth. They look and feel a part of me. They are really softening up and are beginning to move a lot more ( jiggly!!) and experience I have never had! I have stopped fretting about bottoming out but I am sure I will find something else to fret over!
Hope everyone else still making Great progress. I am going to write my thoughts about boob greed later!

So about this boob greed...

I read literally hundreds of people's stories before I had my op and it's fair to say 90% at one point or another said they had wished they had give bigger. I was worried when sizing that I would be a prime candidate for boob greed. Now so far it has not kicked in so appreciate it may still happen to me. However I can honestly say that I have not once thought I should have gone bigger. When I look at those sad girls and how full and perky they are now I feel very lucky. If anything they still look a bit big so am hoping that once they fully settle they will be a C cup. They are DD at the moment which is bigger than I wanted to be. So I suppose my view would be , listen to your surgeon as they really know what they are doing, show your surgeon wish boobs and if you are petite going for small implants can have a massive change when aiming for a natural look. Now it's not beyond me to be writing about my own blood greed a week from now!
Dr Adrian Richards

Adrian was one of 3 surgeons I saw and I liked him straight away. He was attentive and reassuring and took time to find out what I wanted. His nurse Aggie is totally amazing and a godsend on the sizing! If you are after a skilled surgeon who us great a giving a natural look as opposed to a very obvious fake look then you could not be in better hands!
