Firstly, the price I've quoted is in GBP (£5530 inclusive of meds, surgeon and hospital fees, post op etc) - I haven't bothered to convert to USD.

All booked in for October 31st - 7 weeks away EEEK! This website has been so so helpful and enlightening in the past few months, but I found that I couldn't always find the answers I was looking for (given, everyone is different and personal queries and be quite niche!) so I thought I'd try and help others by sharing my experiences.

I understand that I'm very young to be making such a huge decision, but I've realised that I've been unhappy with my boobs since I was about 14/15, had constant boob envy since then too, and will have most likely made this decision in 5-10 years if not now. My logic is, I don't have a partner, not a greatly diverse social life, have saved the money and have the luxury of time to recover; there's no reason for anyone to know that I've done this (important to me - this is for me, and I'm slightly worried about being judged to be honest) and everyone I meet from now on won't think "wow her boobs grew overnight!!". I'm still at the age where I can explain it away as late development, or a consequence of starting to take birth control etc.

Both my mum and my aunt have had BAs.. My aunt when she was a little older than me and my mum after she'd stopped breastfeeding me and her boobs "deflated to flaps of skin like on a turkey's throat" (her words not mine lol). I only found out last summer when my mum got capsular contraction and booked in for a replacement and uplift which she had done 3 months ago. She used the same PS who did her original, and I've decided to go with him too.

Mr Carver is lovely, so reassuring and knowledgable. I do have concerns, and I think I'd be surprised if someone didn't when they're going in for something like this, but Mr Carver and his team have been so helpful and supportive I really feel assured.

My PS only works with textured, teardrop implants which he inserts through the IMF (5cm incision) under the muscular for a number of reasons. Mainly that the textured nature reduces the risk of capsular contraction and turning, and that the anatomical shape gives a more natural result. He took my measurements and I have a BDM of 11.8, so I have been given the option of 315cc or 380cc implants. I've uploaded pics of sizers and will add some more before pics when I've taken them haha

I'm a little nervous about the size. In my first consultation my lower pole was described as 'concave' which is really the reason I'm doing this. Also I have very little width - my boobs are definitely pointy and conical. However, PS said that my breasts aren't tuberous as they look straight ahead, don't sag and my nipples aren't herniated, just large and slightly puffy. I'd been lurking on this website for a few months before my first consultation and had convinced myself I have tuberous breasts, but it only took 45mins of examination by a PS with over 25 years of experience to lay my worries to rest. I don't really want to go massive, just get some fullness and roundness in shape. Mr Carver is also going to lower my IMF as it's currently higher than it should be too. This, and the large gap between my boobs (will make sense when I upload pics) makes me think I can get away with the 380s especially as the teardrop shape will make most of the volume fall to the lower pole and sides... This is what I struggled with when trying on the sizers at the PS's office - they're round implants so I feel not true to the shape I'll be getting, if sizers are ever a true depiction anyway!

Anyway, paying the deposit tomorrow and then it'll all become real! Not nervous at all yet, just impatient if anything!!


Just a quick check-in to share before photos with you. Been feeling less excited and more doubtful of my decision the last couple of days. My reasons are still valid, but I just can't help but feel I'm being a little bit silly by doing all this. Also, I've spent so much time on here I've kind of become a little bit boob-immune!! Just totally desensitised to them and having major boob envy hahaha


View from above didn't upload... here you can see that my right breast has slightly more breast tissue, and when you look at it from the front you can see that because of this the IMF is a little lower. It also means my nipples have 2.2mm difference when my PS took measurements. To be honest I'd never really noticed the asymmetry too much (only that my folds didn't align) and so I'm not too fussed that it'll still be there post-op. As you can see from the pictures, the main thing I want to achieve is lower pole fullness and maybe a little extra width too. I've also included a picture of me braless in a nightie to show how they look au naturel in clothes.

Top view still didn't upload!!!

This app!!!

Will it work?
