31 Year Old Mum of 4 and in Desperate Need of Some Boobies.

I saw my consultant who recommended 360cc in one...

I saw my consultant who recommended 360cc in one and 330cc in the other to even them out a bit. I visited him several times as I wanted to be sure I was going with the right surgeon and each time he was amazing.
I am booked in for my surgery on 21st October and getting very nervous and excited. Pics to follow...

Not long to go now

Have my pre op assessment on the 14th October. Only a week before my op. Can anyone advise me on what they do? Also.....
What do I take hospital with me? They have booked me overnight accommodation as I struggle after anaesthetic. What do I wear to come home in?

Pics taken at sizing appointment

These are the pics I have of me trying on sizes.
330cc left and 360cc right.

Too big? Or too small?

Feeling brave

Wasn't going to post as I'm ashamed of my current boobs.
This was the 3D pic I had taken and it shows 270cc implants but felt they were too small so I tried 300/330cc and still felt small so when I put the 360/330cc in it felt right :)

Decided to take some pre op pics

Decides to take some pre op pics of boobs.... feeling brave but after op will want to show them off so will be a good comparison.

Am i selfish for doing this?

I feel so selfish. The money could have been used in so many other things... do I deserve to have these boobs? I saved long and hard and my children have never gone without, but am I a bad personal for finally doing something for me?
Just the other day my daughter was upset and said she was ugly. I told her to never change as she is perfect just the way she is.., what a hypocrite!
I'm so worried and nervous as op date isn't that far away, maybe I'm just letting the nerves get to me? Is this normal? Lol. I don't know...

Do they get smaller?

Am I right I thinking that the size you try on at sizing appointment is not the size you will end up with? Do they shrink? (Is that the right terminology?) if so, am I better off going for the bigger size to ultimately end up with my 'sizer' size? Xx

It long yo go....

Feeling very nervous about my op now... to the point I feel quite nauseous ????

I haven't heard back about my mrsa swab results so hoping no news is good news...?!

I was also told I should take a men's shirt with me to wear after the op, is this good advice? Anyone shed any light on what is suitable? Xx

3 sleeps to go

Phoned hospital to confirm time and dates, to realise they had the wrong address down for me and wrong year of birth lol.
Sent me into a slight wobble but hoping that's just an admin error and not the start of things to come

Big day tomorrow eekkkk

Well the big day is only one sleep away. Childcare sorted, house blitzed top to bottom, meals prepared, washing done, adjustable bed backrest and V pillow purchased... just to pack my bag and try to not let the nerves get the better of me!
Ekkkkk

En route

On my way to hospital now...

Wish me luck everyone 0_o xx

Had my op. I'm in LOVE lol.

Had my op 8:50 this morning. Spent longer than expected in recovery as I struggled to come out of anaesthetic and I had an adverse reaction to morphine.
They said they might keep me in for observation but hoping to go home.

To some they might not look massive but to me they are perfect! :)

1day po

Feeling very swollen and I have this weird 'itchy' feeling on my nipples but I have no feeling there st the moment so itching it isn't helping.
Due to my reactions and poor obs in the night I'm on strict meds watch. Hot about 2 hours sleep so very tired today :(
Managed to get a couple of pics too...

Do you think too small?

Day 2... feeling very sorry for myself

Well I'm on day 2 post op...

Again I didn't get much sleep so this was accompanied by tears and by me feeling extremely sorry for myself.

I feel so much more swollen today, to the point both of my upper arms feel very heavy and painful to move?

I wasn't allowed anything strong pain relief wise due to adverse reactions so I only have diclofenac and paracetamol which aren't really doing anything.
Bra feels very tight this morning and I honestly don't know how this one is giving me any kind of support? Lol.

Day 3 post op

Feeling very tender with pain radiating on (mainly) my right breast. The pain seems to be under my armpit and underneath the breast.
Is this normal?
Swelling doesn't seem to be as bad today but I get exhausted so quickly even from doing the slightest thing?

Ok kind of boob related... HELP please

Since I woke from anaesthetic I have had a really painful mouth and throat...
At first I thought maybe it would clear within a couple of days but things have gotten worse?? Can anyone help? Is this 'common'?
Any help greatly appreciated

Poorly boobie :'(

Seeing my surgeon tomorrow due to my right breast being extremely swollen and painful. I saw the nurse today who swapped me into a macom bra (the most comfortable bra I've had since surgery) but she is a bit worried about the size of my breast so I am meeting ps in the afternoon after he has finished his morning surgeries.
Really worried...
anyone had this problem before?

6 days post op

All is good.... surgeon met with me today and he has reassured that there is nothing seriously wrong. He said that my implants were a tight squeeze and judging from the tiny incisions it's amazing they got anything up there at all haha. He aid that it's sitting high still and the skin is probably stretching but will see me next week to keep me reassured. :) xx

When will my run of bad luck end :'(

So today I decided I would nip into Tesco to buy my son a birthday card...
Next thing I know is I have 2 paramedics kneeling over me cos I fainted whilst there. My daughter alerted security that I had said I didn't feel very well and they came straight over! I have spoken to surgical team and she wanted me to come in overnight for observation but I wasn't sure due to me only feeling faint and nauseated... surely I would be wasting the doctors time??
I have been told I HAVE to be checked over tomorrow so they can give me the once over...
I still feel unwell with mentioned symptoms plus a headache so not sure what can be causing that?! :'(
I am really starting to have regrets... I've had such a bad run of luck. As much as I love my new boobs, I don't love the poorliness that comes with it.

Some pics of boobies dressed up!

Last night whilst I was on my '1 hour of braless' break I decided to try on some stuff that I would never have comfortably worn before due to it having enough up too to fill it... well last night I smiled. Because the clothes fitted and looked good!! :)

Incision opened today :(

Husband got himself drunk so I ended up doing a hell of a lot more than I probably should have due to him not really coherent...
I was looking after him and the four children and the home whilst trying to look after myself at the same time...
Anyway, after stretching for something I felt what felt like a pop immediately followed by pain.
I had weeping and a bit of blood coming from my incision.
Cleaned and redressed but in A LOT of pain across both breasts now? Right more than left though.

Starting to have regrets... they look awful :'(

I'm starting to regret getting my ba....
When I first got them I was so happy and so in love with them.
I'm not starting to hate them after seeing everyone else's perfect breasts. :(
My ones look awful, almost saggy and they are really veiny?!
The veins are so obvious and it's really starting to bug me.
Please can I have honest opinions?

Happy all over again

Think I was feeling so down before I was picking faults with EVERYTHING.
Mr Richards and his team are amazing. Anything I have worried about has been dealt with, if I needed help they were happy to see me at short notice and what I like is the fact I can openly talk to them without feeling awkward lol.
I'm looking at having another consultation with Mr Richards about having another procedure done... this time lipo.. but again will have to listen to his advice and what he thinks.
Today, for the first time, I noticed that I had 'lady lumps' under my clothes that WEREN'T padding haha. Made me feel so confident and happy. Was a good feeling!

Starting to soften

Well I'm over the two week mark since my ba. They are starting to soften up... my right boob is still high compared to my left which makes the left look massive in comparison but I'm hoping they will even out in time.
Still love them, my confidence has gone right up! Apparently I seem happier, I have a 'glow' and relaxed lol.
Still early days so will look forward to seeing my final results :)

3 week 1 day birthday

Swelling seems to have gone right down, they are softening up what seems like everyday. I still have numbness on bottom half of my breasts so I am hoping the feeling comes back eventually.
The incisions are looking good and am changing dressing every few days.
Went to m&s today and she measured me at 36D but the bra I tried on was not a good fit at all. I was spilling out of it. In Debenhams I was measured at 34E and the bra felt really good, supportive and so comfortable.

4 weeks

Well I'm now 4 weeks post op and still not sure... my left still feels and looks bigger than my right but I'm hoping once things settle they will even out?
Other than that, I am loving the way I feel. I am happier, which means home life is happier which also means a happy hubby haha. Other people have noticed a positive difference in me too so all good.

6 weeks po and feeling great!!

Been 6 weeks since my op and I feel great. Like they are part of me. One is totally soft and natural whilst the other is almost there. I got measured in 2 different places and i measured a 34E O_o
After getting the ok from Mr Richards, I did my first bra shop. This is a task I have never enjoyed, I've spent time poring over different styles but I did this time. Me and hubby looked and chose together.
My confidence has soared, my mood has lifted, I feel content. I would 100% recommend Adrian to anyone considering a BA. :)
London Plastic Surgeon

The surgeon and all his staff have been amazing so far and answering any questions I may have no matter how small of silly the question may be. I have now had my surgery and I am over the moon. I had some apprehensions over my assymatry but as Mr Richards and his care team said, they are sisters, not twins. They have been truly amazing with all aspects of communication, hospitality and care. I will and have recommended Mr Richards to other friends considering a procedure and am looking forward to my final look. Thank you so much xxx
