I was always a very petite girl. I went through high school and college feeling like I had the body of a teenage boy. I learned to live with it though, because even the thought of a breast augmentation scared me.
When I got pregnant at 25 my first thought, sadly, was “I’m finally gonna have the body of a real woman!!!” After I had my son, I was a 34D!
I never thought that I would ever be that size bra in my life.
I breast fed my son for two and a half years. Partly because he would not stop no matter how hard I tried and partly because I still enjoyed the huge engorged boobs it left me with.
Unfortunately, this didn’t last much longer. About three months after I weaned my son off of my breasts, I noticed gravity taking course. My cup size slowly got smaller and smaller. A year later, I was stuck with a saggy, stretch marked A-cup. It was depressing to look at myself in the mirror and dating was absolutely out of the equation. I cringed at the thought of a man undressing me and seeing my bee stings.
Finally, I decided to do some research on plastic surgeons in my area. Dr. Gartner stuck out the most amongst all I found. I set up an appointment in June. We met and I instantly knew he would be the doctor to perform my breast augmentation.
I tried on sizers and we spoke about the natural look I was trying to achieve. I went with 300ccs, moderate plus profile. Four months later, I had my breast augmentation surgery and it was the best decision I ever made. I am now 2 weeks post op and I cannot stop looking at myself in the mirror. I am so happy with the decision I made and I would highly recommend anyone contemplating getting it done to go for it.
Not only has it boosted my confidence but it has raised my self esteem to unbelievable levels as well.
For the first time in years, I finally feel like a woman and I have to keep reminding myself that unlike the last time my bra size went up…these are here to stay!!
