Breast Implants and Breast Augmentation Stories from our Visitors

If you have already read Nicole's Story, you have a pretty good idea what this section of the website is all about. After several women emailed their breast augmentation stories to us, we thought it would be great to have women share their full-length recovery stories after their breast implant surgeries for everyone's benefit. Thankfully, many women have contributed, some in more detail than others.

Here are the stories of our visitors. Many names have been changed for privacy. Where appropriate, there is detail in parentheses so you can decide if you are interested. Click on a name to read.

18 Year Old With a Great Result!

I was always very uncomfortable with my small and asymmetric chest. At 17, reality set in that this was all I was ever going to have. I always thought about Brest Augmentation in the future when I graduated college, but I couldn't wait that long being uncomfortable so I decided to discuss this with my mom. She was not thrilled about me having plastic surgery but agreed to look into it.

The summer before my freshman year of college, I went on 4 consults. I had not decided on a surgeon before I went to school but knew that over the year in college, my left size seemed to grow but not the right. Before surgery, I was a AA in the right with almost no tissue and a full A/small B in the left. Bras and shirts would shift to the left side and this was so frustrating. I also felt like something was always missing and I lacked confidence and never felt sexy and was always shy during intimate moments because I was only worried about my disfigured chest.

I had surgery on May 5, 2010 and I am only a little over a week out and I feel like I have had them forever. Because of my asymmetry I have a 400 cc mod+ silicone implant in the right breast and only a 240cc low profile silicone implant in the left breast...and now I am very close to even. I was able to get silicone at 18 because it was considered reconstructive surgery because of my asymmetry. Right now I measure a 34 C...but I am a small C and it looks so natural. People don't notice unless they knew of my surgery because I always wore major padding. My clothes all fit soo much better and I feel more feminine and I no longer feel uncomfortable in my body. Because I am not a very small girl I felt so unproportionate before my surgery (I am 5'6 and weight 136 lbs).

I researched every option and went with a surgeon highly recommended by my OBGYN who was a top surgeon in North Jersey and had outstanding reviews. Every surgeon recommended something different but I had to go with my gut and what I thought was the best for me. He did a beautiful job and I am so happy. Also, my recovery was a breeze. I came out of surgery with just tape on my incision and had discomfort for 2 days and then I was completely fine and off pain meds on day 3. By day 4, I bought my first bra! I am glad I did this in the prime of my life and can enjoy them and feel comfortable!
