Boob job?

has anyone on PW had breast augmentation? I am considering doing it after the wedding I have been doing research between saline and silicone and I think I would like silicone. Were you happy with the results? What are the Pros and Cons.

I am all for the breast augmentation. I say, if it makes you happy, why not? Go for it. I did. But I had to think really hard as to why I wanted them. And the bottom line is, I always was so insecure with my small breasts. ALL MY LIFE.


it's not as bad as you think it may be.


I went w/ saline. It's really a personal reference. But the reason why I went with saline is because it gives it more of a natural feel and more bounce to the ounce. haha. I also had them strategically place closer together so I wouldn't that weird looking gap in between. I love it, because even when I'm not wearing a bra, I still have great cleavage.


 As far as recovery goes, it's all in your mind. If you stay in bed pouting and telling urself "oh my gawd, i'm in so much pain", then you'll be in tons of pain. I pretty much went on with my days. I had surgery Thursday and returned back to work Monday. Its not as bad as people make it seem. It's what u make of it.


As far as pros n cons. Again, it's a personal reference. U decide how much u really want it. And if u really want it, u have to be aware and except what may happen while on the surgery table or years later after the surgery. I've had mine for 3 years and have yet to come across any problems. However, a friend of mine had hers done and she has had nothing but problems. She's had two corrective surgeries :( 


My advice to you is if your decide to get "the girls", make sure u get them for you. And only you. Not for anyone else. And make sure you do your research for the best breast cosmetic surgeon around. I went with a surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation. That's pretty much all he does. oh, and make sure the surgeon is someone u like and trust. Don't go with one that you don't really care for or you dont have a connection with. But then decide to go with him because hes the cheaper doc. You get what you pay for....especially with cosmetic surgery.


If you're in the Bay Area I can give u my doctors info.


Good Luck!

I've been thinking about a boob job since I was 13 that I can remember, and a day doesn't go by literally that I don't think that "I wish I had bigger boobs".  =(


Thanks for some insight Jaryce21. 


I was trying to decide if/when and told myself by my last bday I'd make my mind up one way or the other.  Well I was leaning towards it, then got engaged in March and here I am about to hit another bday in Nov and haven't done anything about it cause it will cut into our self funding wedding budget.


Its very depressing.


Kohler44 will you PM me as well your thoughts?


I'm interested to know the experiences of those who've been brave enough to do it!


Thanks!

I agree with Jaryce21 about your recovery.  It's all in what you make it.  I had plastic surgery done to my face and I bounced back quickly.  We all think it's like Extreme Makeover where they are laid up for days even weeks and for them they are as they get a big overhaul.  But getting one or two things done is not going to put you out for days on end. 


It is surgery and should be treated as such.  With a good surgeon you'll do fine.  I am waiting until I am done having children/breastfeeding before I get the girls done.  I can't wait!  ;)

Yeah I have been unhappy with my breast size since I hit puberty. I thought my boobs would grow and they never did :(


Around how much does it cost? I want to become a full C cup and I am a small B right now.

I know there are many who are completely against having plastic surgery that it's too risky etc. Like all surgeries, there are risks associated but I've had them done b/c I have slight scoliosis and one side of my boobs were uneven. Totally unnoticeable to others but I noticed. Now they're even and I am very happy with them b/c I was definately self conscious about it before. I would have to say it was the best $7K I spent in my life. Definately do your research though b/c plastic surgery is not for everyone.


For you LA girls, I heard Dr David Kim in Beverly Hills is great. I saw his website and I contemplated on going to him for mine but with many post op follow up appts, I decided against it and went to a local doctor. He specializes in the belly button procedure which is less invasive and recovery time is a lot faster. He's in the same building as Dr Rey from Dr 90210.

I know most of you girls are in Cali, but if anyone is from Houston I'd love some recommendations too! 


I've been fighting the unfortunate uneven plague all my life...despite the small size (A), I'd be much happier and more confident if they were at least the same size.  And its very noticeable during certain times of the month...much less normally.  Blah.  TMI I know, but since we're all being open & honest here! =)
