Well, here I go. (Excuse any spelling or grammar...

Well, here I go. (Excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes, I'm not native English spaker).

I've never had much boobies. They where petite but beautifull. However, as I grew older they shrunk a lot due to sport and losing weight, so they got quite flat and empty. In any case I didn't feel bad or a lack of confidence but sometimes I didn't feel femenine at all, for example in my gym clothes and lifting weights. My chest looked really flat.

Although my husband has always loved (and told me so) my breasts, he agreed with me when I told him I would look better with bigger boobs because my body would look more balanced. So we started considering the BA.
After visiting different surgeons I chose Dr. José Ignacio Ortega. I have to point out I had my surgery in Spain, where I am from and where I live.

I'm very shy, so when I decided to get my BA my first concern was I didn't want to get noticed by pwople due to my boobs, even more because I'm a teacher and parents and students can be sometimes a little bit judgy with how teachers look.

I'm 5 ft 6" and 114 lbs, so in my first visit to my surgeon I insisted on the fact I wanted something quite discrete. After taking measures he offred me 3 sizes with Mentor teardrop shaped implants:
330 cc high profile
290 cc high profile
250 cc high profile.
At the beginning I chose 330 cc, but for a week I was completely stressed with the thought of this being too much so everybody would notice and also that it could interfere with my yoga routine full of handstands and arm balances. So then I called him and changed to 290 cc high profile.

It's been now a week since my BA. Everything has gone smoothly: almost no pain, just some sort of disconfort, a bit of low back pain due to sleeping every night facing up, and the worst beredom because there's not much to do when you can barely move your arms. But now that they are settling down, I kind of wonder if I made the wrong decission and I should have gone for 330 cc. I'm happy with how they look on me, but I think I would have looked much better with 330 cc or even 375 cc. And I don't know if I'm just having a silly booby greed. My family and my girlfriends who have seen how I look have agreed they look perfect on me, but you know...I don't think they would say the contrary to avoid hurting my feelings.

I cannot talk about this to my husband since I gave him a hard time on this decission of the size, I went back and forth with the sizes like a dozen times, so I have to accept it and be happy with what I chose.

What do you girls think? I know they would have looked great bigger, but do you think 290 cc look small? My fear is they might shrink a bit more when they settle even more. Does this happen?

First night out

Last night was the first time I went out with some friends and I got a bit dressed up. Everybody told me I looked great and the size was perfect for my body. To be honest I didn't expect so many nice comments. In fact I was worried about them telling me I should have gone bigger.
Besides I still wore the post suegery bra that as you all know, it's not very flattering.
Although I still have second thought about whether I made the right or wrong decision about the size, I think I'm beginning to feel more confortable with them.
This picture is 11 days post surgery and 3 days after my first revision.

New bra.

Very happy with my new bra size. European size 90C, although some 90B can fit as well.

My implants' labels

Since someone asked me about my implants, here you have the labels.
IZQ means "left" and DCHA "right".
Dr. José Ignacio Ortega

Very professional and very meticulous. He has informed very well of the process and I've felt very safe and confident all the time. He asked me to call him every single day after the surgery to let him know how I felt, even on the weekends and has been very patient with my questions and chages of opinion. The only thing I can complaint he doesn't have size testers so you cannot have a "preview" of how you'd look.
