Marcela's Story: Choosing Between a Car or Breast Implants

A Note from Eden: This is a guest post from Marcela, one of my friends on Instagram!

My name is Marcela, I’m 21 years old, and I’ve just got my Breast Augmentation... couldn’t be any happier!

But before I talk about how happy and satisfied I am, let me start telling my journey from the beginning.

I always knew my boobs wouldn’t be as big and beautiful as my moms. Instead, I knew I had the type of body from my fathers family: thin, tiny waist, small boobs, and I only have booty if I'm working hard at the gym. I knew I wanted a breast augmentation since I was 16, but my parents thought I was too young (and I agreed with them).

Finally Turning 21

So just before my 21st birthday, my parents kept asking, “Would you prefer to have a car or boobs?”

Honestly, I didn’t had even to think about it...

I reaaaally wanted to get a boob job, and I was totally criticized by most of people who knew I had these options. But come on! This was my choice! It's what was going to make me feel great, and what I wanted for my birthday. So, of course I didn’t care and moved on.

The rest happened pretty fast. I already knew a good doctor who had operated on my mom, and we trust him very much. So I was able to skip the step of searching for a good doctor, which is 50% of the process.

Getting Prepared

Before going to my first appointment, I read a lot and went prepared with as much information as I could—including pictures of some of my boobinspirations, so he could see what I was expecting. Deciding on size was easy too, as I trusted him and showed my expectations. He suggested high profile, 335cc or 350cc, under the muscle, with crease incision and I agreed (knowing I didn’t have much tissue and couldn't handle more than this).

Ready for the Procedure

In less than 3 months, I was at the operation room. The procedure was so fast, and I didn’t feel any pain at all. I left the hospital the day after breast augmentation surgery, went home, and just followed doctor’s instructions: lots of rest, drink plenty of water, take my medicines at the right time, and do not raise my arms (which I couldn’t do if I tried).

Recovery was very easy and fast. I had almost no pain, I just felt tight when I woke up for the first week. My family helped me in almost everything. They made me feel like a real princess, and I thank them every day for it. I seriously think this was crucial to my perfect healing.

Advice for the Ladies

What I think is important to know before having a boob job is that you’ll certainly need help... trying to make it on your own would be very difficult and certainly increase your pain.

Even showering will demand some patience!

In one week I was back at my university, feeling fine but taking care to not expect too much from my body. As I'm writing this, I’m 19 days post op and the only things I still can’t do comfortably are sleeping on my side and raising my arms up high. But I can do my hair, which is already enough.

My Overall Results

I still have some dropping & fluffing to do, but I already love them! My boobs are now what I always wanted them to be like! They are exactly how I wanted, imagined and expected. Seeing the before and after difference is great, and as I said in the beginning I could be any happier.

Now I’m totally satisfied with my body, feeling more confident than ever, and I know this feeling is not temporary. Every piece of clothing I try on gives me the assurance that I’ve made the right choice. A car would never make me feel this way, (sorry for the haters hahaha!)

To wrap it up, I can’t say ‘This was the best thing I did for me’ because my parents gave it to me. But “This was definitely the best present someone could ever give to me!” fits perfect.
