If you would like to share your story about breast implants by answering these five quick questions, please let me know!
Jenny Eden: Think about the story that led to you getting a breast augmentation... how come you decided to get breast implants?
Samantha: The reason why I decided to get a breast augmentation is because I have always felt uncomfortable with not only the shape of my breasts but also the size of them.
I've always known something was odd about the shape... they looked like tubes that came straight out of my chest with my areolas looking larger then my actually breasts themselves.
I've never had what I would say "normal" meaning round of teardrop that I would see flashing across the TV or what I would see on my sisters and mother.
I didn't have cleavage which made me feel uncomfortable wearing certain tops because I never filled them out the right way.
It also was affecting my sex life. I didn't have confidence, and I was very self conscious. I never took off my top or bra and would never let my boyfriend see them or touch them for that matter.
Jenny Eden: What kind of challenges or frustrations did you face once you decided to get a breast augmentation?
Samantha: My biggest challenge was actually finding a doctor. I went to 8 different board certified plastic surgeons before I found the one that was for me.
Once I found her it was a cake walk, even the surgery and recovery! I didn't have much pain just when I was being stubborn and wanted to more then I was supposed to be.
Jenny Eden: Tell us about your most favorite thing about having breast implants :-)
Samantha: My favorite thing about having breast implants is actually feeling comfortable with my breasts! I feel more confident and I actually enjoy having sex with my significant other.
I am also able to fill out tops and bras which is wonderful it's made shopping fun. I am also able to find bras that fit properly as well there is no more gaping and I have cleavage!
Jenny Eden: How big did you end up going?
Samantha: I am 5'5 and weigh around 170lbs, my pre bra size was a 36B/C (I didn't fill out either properly because of my slight tuberous breasts).
I went with 565 High Profile gummy bear Sientras on both sides with crease incision to slice my lower pole to break up my "ring" and dual plane method to fill out my lower pole to give my breasts a more rounded out appearance. I'm a 38DDD in some bras but in others I'm a 38G!
Jenny Eden: What were the most helpful parts of Eden Knows Implants for you?
Samantha: It was all the information! It had articles on everything and it made me feel better that a lot of my questions could be answered with just a click! I also loved your all natural recovery products. It made everything go way smoother!
Thoughts from Dr. Ben WoodTuberous breast can have mild forms that can be addressed with placing implants, but may have more complicated forms, that sometimes require more than one procedure to get to the final result.
