I'm 19 years old and have modelled for 10+ years, done beauty pageants, and always felt a little self conscious about my lack of chest size. My family is full of large breasted women and I always thought I'd grow my own one some day.. Sadly not! I was quite young when I decided I'd wanted a breast augmentation one day but never saw it being something I'd do soon until I realized how affordable it could be. I'm so glad I did it.
Because I came from Canada I did EVERYTHING in one day. My surgery was scheduled for 330 pm. The nurse called on Saturday to give me a time, and then Yadira, my coordinator called me from her personal phone on Sunday to confirm as well as give me her number should I ever need something. Yadira is amazing, she was so loving to me as were all the staff at CG. But I'll get to that.. :)
Arrived at 11:30 to sign all my papers and get my photos done. I waited maybe 15 minutes to go in and do this . Tamilka told me through this and she was so funny and sweet. I then say in the waiting room until about 3 and my mom and I chatted with another woman who had flown in for a BA. It was a nice atmosphere and the wait wasn't bad at all. I was then taken for a pregnancy test, and met with Dr Frieman, who was gorgeous.. Lol!!! He asked some questions about my health and was kind, made some jokes and put me at ease (though I truthfully wasn't nervous). He asked me how large I wanted them, I showed him a picture and he said that was very realistic and he gave me some options for incision locations, explaining the pros and cons of each. I decided on having my incisions under the fold of my breast.
I didn't get the name of my anesthesiologist but she was teenmendous. She came in and said "hi baby.. Oh NO! You don't have a blanket!" And proceeded to bring me a nice warm blanket right out of the drier. She did my iv quite quickly and asked me some questions as well. I was then taken into the operating room, where Dr Frieman greated me once again with a big smile. This was the only time I became nervous but that's okay because I was out FAST!
I woke up and didn't notice the pain right away, the first thing I did was look down and start bawling my eyes out at my new BOOBIES! :) I don't remember who helped me up and into my chair, but she called my mom and said "she is ready and so happy". She helped me get dressed and hugged me and said "you did it!! It's all over and your dream came true". That really was the only way to describe it. She then wheeled me to my mom and down the elevator into my cab.
The ride home was a bit bumpy and uncomfortable but I didn't have much pain because I took my percocet and muscle relaxant right after surgery. When I got home I was extremely nauseous but the prescription settled it immediately. I've been propped up in bed since getting home and I am quite sore, but it's not unbearable whatsoever. When I am propped up in bed it's not bad at all, it is very difficult to get up and they are more uncomfortable when standing, but it's a lot better than I expected. Mostly I am just tired, I was falling asleep with mouthfuls of food when I finally ate.. Lol!! I am still taking my percocets every 4 hours. It's actually the middle of the night while I write this.
What shocks me the most is how good they look already!! I was expecting major Frankenboob because I'm so tiny but they're really looking quite nice already! Just a little high of course. I go back to the clinic tomorrow at 11am and will keep you all updated.
Thank you all so much for sharing your stories. It truly allowed me to go into this surgery confident and at ease. I love you all more than you know! Xoxo
