of all I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am a mother of five
children between the ages of 20 months and 11 yrs old and also a newlywed wife
(was married August 1, 2008). I biologically had 3 children all of which were
breastfed for at least a year each. I am quite physically active enjoy
exercising, weightlifting, yoga and have a very physically demanding job.
I have wanted breast
implants since the birth of my 2nd daughter seven years ago. After
two pregnancies and breastfeeding for over two years my breasts were left small
and deflated and I was very self-conscious about them I felt very unfeminine and
in turn had a very bad self-image. I decided to see a plastic surgeon to see
what my options were. It was recommended that I get implants to correct the
atrophy of my breast tissue and that I would have to have someone care for me
and my children and also needed to take six weeks off of work. At the time I
was a single parent of a 1 year old and a 3.5 year old. Needless to say, I had
no support from my family to have this procedure done at that time.
Fast forward to now….
I am married to an amazing supportive man and am blessed with two of his
children and a child of our own in my life! I went to my General Practitioner
in the middle of August of this year for another referral to the same surgeon I
saw several years ago and got in to see him very fast! My appointment was Oct
17, 2008 and the appointment went so well I decided to put a deposit down to
hold a surgery date. I expected to get in early January 2009 but ended up
getting in November 27, 2008!!!
Five days later…
Surgery is done I have 350cc silicone moderate profile, smooth shell implants,
sub-muscular placement and crease incision. Surgery went so well, recovery is
going so well and my work is allowing me to be on a back to work program where
they modify my duties until I am capable of fulfilling my regular duties.
I would like to thank
