Breast Augmentation journey started when I was 16 years old. I know from a very
young age that I would someday do this. Growing up in high school and having
the feelings of not being adequate enough, that someday I would show all the
girls in the locker room up.
day came on February 5, 2007, when I went in for my first breast augmentation
procedure. I had waited almost 20 years before I was finally able to do this –
and it was not an easy journey for me to get there. During my first marriage I
could not afford this procedure, so I decided to get a job and opened up a
savings account and start saving every dime. However, it was not be sadly, even
though I had almost the entire surgery paid for – my marriage was breaking up
and I had to get a divorce. I cancelled my surgery and got a refund – and
finally got a divorce.
to think that my dream of having breasts would never come true. I ended up
getting remarried and low and behold; found out that my new hubby was not a
“breast man”. Aside from that factor, my new husband was the man of my dreams.
During the next five years I tried to get my dear husband to warm up to the idea
– and he always retorted with saying it was an unnecessary surgery. He didn’t
want me to take the risk of undergoing elective surgery, so I respected his
feelings and put my dreams on hold again. From time to time I tried talking to
him about this procedure and pleading my case, but he was not giving in to my
night I made a comment about how my breasts were changing as I was getting
older, and then out of the blue – he finally told me to go ahead and get the
breast augmentation. He knew in his heart that I would never be happy until I
do this, so I guess he knew me well! The following morning I was on the phone
with plastic surgeon’s offices making appointments for getting the consults
consult did not go so well, as my husband did not care for the surgeon’s
personality. So, I moved on to the second consult, hoping that this was not
going to be a repeat performance. The second appointment went exceptionally
well and my husband really liked the plastic surgeon. I was so excited; I
proceeded to getting the financing in place, so I could schedule the surgery. I
scheduled my surgery and was ready to go. The surgery went well; however it did
take longer than normal to come out of the anesthesia. I ended up with 450cc
silicone implants – under the muscle – moderate profile – crease incision.
Before surgery, I was a 36A and after surgery I was measuring a 36D.
week after the surgery was difficult due to the implant placement, being under
the muscle, but other than that everything was great. About four months later
after my first surgery, I noticed the right implant had not dropped yet. My
plastic surgeon scheduled a second surgery to release the scar tissue. After
the surgery, I felt an immediate difference in the feel of the implant. Finally
everything was perfect.
forward a year, and that horrible “boobie greed” bug had bitten me. After
re-consulting with my plastic surgeon, he agreed that I was able to go to larger
implants. I scheduled surgery May 22, 2008. We agreed to go up to 800cc
silicone implants. This surgery was a breeze and I love being this size, I am a
Unfortunately as fate would have it, I ended up with complications from this
last surgery. I ended up bottoming out on the right side, so after the first of
this coming year – 2009, I am going to schedule a revision surgery to have this
fixed. I am having the creases reinforced with permanent sutures to help hold
up the implant and to get my creases even.
Having this surgery has
been such a wonderful thing for me, and I would do this again in a heartbeat.
It has been so worth it to have my self esteem back. The journey you take might
have unexpected twists and turns in the road – but all in all, it has been the
most satisfying thing I have ever done for myself. I just love when someone is
looking at me now, and they are thinking “oh my, did you see how big her boobs
are”. I know this is happening all the time, as my mother in law recently
watched a guy say something to his girlfriend about my breasts, as his
girlfriend turned around to look at me……I just smiled at her and said to myself,
“I know, aren’t they great?”
