The most commonly asked question I receive from both men and women is: “Are your boobs real or fake!?”
If you’re considering getting your boobs enhanced or just have some general curiosity. Here, let me tell you all about my before and after breast surgery experience!
When asked the above question, I imagine some people would scoff and turn away, but not me – I embrace the question confidently and say “MY BOOBS, THEY’RE UNREAL!”
Unreal is how I like to describe my breasts, unreal to touch and to gaze upon, haha!
BEFORE BREAST SURGERY
Before my breast augmentation, my bras size was an Australian 10A, which is equivalent to a size 32A in USA and EU standard sizing.
I’ve heard it all before. ”flat chested” “like a boy” “like a little girl” “thank god she had surgery” – before my surgery I copped some pretty harsh criticism. But it wasn’t all bad, I had a lot of fans who loved my itty bitty titties and personally I like the look of small natural breasts on other women, but it wasn’t for me, I didn’t feel confident.
My breast surgery decision was motivated by being surrounded by women with enhanced breasts at the beginning of my career in the industry of lingerie waitressing. However, soon after my surgery I discovered that a lot of men genuinely say they prefer natural breasts over enhanced ones, or as the Aussie men would say, “BOLT ON’S”
WHY DID I GET MY BREAST SURGERY?
Simple answer is; because I wanted too!
IS IT TRUE BREAST ENHANCEMENT CAUSES INCREASED SELF-CONFIDENCE?
Yes, it’s true, for my personal experience at least! Many girls I’ve met also say YES and I have watched their journey and how much the confidence within them grew.. it’s like they came out of their “shell!”
It is however dependant on the result and the success of the surgery for the woman to feel emotionally and physically happy.
For those who know me, know that I’m not one for accessories. I rarely carry a handbag and I never wear things like hats, watches or jewellery. For me, I feel that my breasts are like the equivalent of a Louis Vuitton bag. That’s how much value they bring to me, day to day as I walk down the street.
NOT JUST 1 BREAST SURGERY, BUT 2!
My first breast surgery was performed by 5 years ago by Dr Richard Sackelariou in Double Bay, NSW.
My implants are “Johnson and Johnson” brand of 330CC, tear drop shape and inserted under the muscle. The teardrop shape was specifically chosen to suit my body shape after comprehensive bodily measurements and a thorough check of my medical history. I was also shown many examples of undisclosed patients similar to my wants by Dr Richard, so I could visualise what my final results would look like.
EVERYBODY’S BODY IS DIFFERENT!
I had a recovery time of 2 weeks after my surgery. Initially it was tight and VERY painful. I struggled to even flush the toilet and brush my hair and I couldn’t lift my arms over my head. I suffered from a pinched nerve that radiated stabbing pain from my left boob all the way down my left elbow.
A lot of people say that the second surgery is so much easier but in my experience it certainly was not any better!
After my second surgery I could not work for 1 month and I could not physically train for 3. The image below shows you the chest brace I had to wear for 3 days after both surgeries. The brace was sooo tight and it is intended to minimise swelling, it made me feel dizzy and nauseous by the end of day 3 I was so ready to take it off, I felt free.
I HAD TO GET MY MUM
TO CUT IT OFF ME
Many girls request to wear the chest brace and when it was cut off I could understand why, because I definitely felt more secure when I was wearing it. The best and most supportive non-wire sports bras that are recommended for post surgery’s are Berlei Bra’s, the average cost for one is $60 – $80 but they’re with it, they last for years and I still wear them religiously.
PAIN KILLER REACTIONS
I experienced severe reactions from the pain killers, they inflamed me so much so that I looked pregnant!
1ST BREAST SURGERY RESULTS
Not going to lie, when I first saw the results of my augmentation I cried, they were so swollen, perky and positioned so high up on my chest I was scared. The picture below shows tape on my under boob over the incision scars where the implants were inserted. I wore the tape for a few weeks then massaged bio oil into the scars to reduce them.
THE NIGHT BEFORE MY BREAT SECOND SURGERY
About 8 months after my 1st surgery I noticed I had scar tissue on the top of my right implant that ran up to my collar bone. The scar tissue couldn’t be seen but I could definitely feel it. When I would exercise I found it would tighten my neck muscles and pull on my chest. At times being without a crop top or supportive bra at work would lead to my breasts hurting after a few hours.
After 2 years of having my breast implants, I finally had the second breast surgery. The second surgery was to remove the built up scar tissue and also loosen the breast pocket the implant sat in.
PRE SECOND BREAST SURGERY!
Thankfully, this time I had Mum with me. She was there to take my before surgery photo. Surgery always gives me nerves even though I knew I was in good hands.
POST SECOND BREAST SURGERY
I know for some observers, my breasts might physically appear to look no different but for me there was a massive difference. The photo below was 1 week post surgery (no binder or tape). As you can see, straight away they are sitting a lot lower and more relaxed then before.
My initial breast surgery cost me around $12,000 Australian dollars. The 2nd breast surgery I only paid the hospital and antithesis fee.
