Finally Getting the Surgery! - Seoul, KR

Hello Real self community! i have been following...

Hello Real self community! i have been following this site for about 2 months now and felt compelled and somewhat obligated (in a good way) to give back and provide the community with my review. I haven't had the breast fat transfer yet - since the surgery is in about 5 days.

My story:

I've been a flat chested girl for the entirety of my life. I was actually quite optimistic while growing up, thinking that they'd develop later in high school, later in college, and after graduating college. BUT nope. They stayed the same pretty much since middle school. I was never really that self conscious about them, not even in college. However, after I graduated college, I started noticing I couldn't fill my shirts, I'd also feel embarrassed to wear swimsuits/bikinis in front of my friends because I didn't want to reveal the fact that I was so, utterly flat. I've always known about the breast augmentation via implants and considered it here and there for the past 2 years, but I was never comfortable with the idea of having foreign objects placed inside of my body. I've also read too many horror stories about infections, sickness, and discomfort related to the surgery. But about 2 months ago, I happened to google fat transfer to breast for kicks and giggles and ohmygoodness, it was actually a thing. I was ecstatic. The first site I stumbled upon was Realself and I basically read almost every single experience. This helped me decide to go through with the surgery and get it done! I live in California, so I started looking for qualified surgeons in the oc/la area, but realized it was really expensive. Then, I read a couple of reviews of some girls getting it done in Korea for about half of the price and considered going there for the surgery. I don't think it was feasible at the time since I couldn't afford taking more vacation time from work. But somehow I made it happen. Through the detailed review (and great results) of another member here, I decided to get it done from the same doctor. I contacted the clinic through kakao and received a response within a couple of hours. The consultant was fluent in English, very helpful and super informative. She answered all of my questions and also gave me a quote. I was pretty set on just getting it there, so I booked my surgery date and consultation appointment. This is kind of crazy, but after much contemplation, I decided to go through with it just last week and purchased my plane ticket as well. Did I mention that I am flying to Korea tomorrow!? I am both excited and very nervous at the same time since I will be staying with my grandparents and I don't want them to know that I got the surgery. I think I'll just have to be super ninja about it.

I will keep you guys updated!
