Hi girls! I'm day one post op, just wanted to share my story!

It was 3 years ago when I first started seriously looking into getting my boobs done. I had always been very self-conscious about my size. I was an AA and even with a push up bra, I couldn't create any cleavage at all. There was simply nothing there to be pushed up! Going to the beach involved many embarrassing moment. I could never wear dresses that require some chest volume to look feminine. My ex-partner bought me a gorgeous cocktail dress for my birthday once. I was so upset that the top half of me looked like a pre-pubertal teen. I have a bum and a waist but zero boobs. So I look very much out of proportion. 

I started doing research on breast augmentation. The first website I came across was TCI. The price was attractive and I live in Bondi Junction so it's just around the corner from me. Part of me wanted to get it done asap but part of me convinced myself that I should learn more about the process including the surgeons' credentials, recovery time, types of implants etc. The more I read, the more I was convinced that I should see a plastic surgeon instead of a cosmetic surgeon. I made an appointment with Dr Lim and Dr T. They were both very professional and answered all my questions thoroughly. But I still had doubts. 

My ex-partner is from South America and we decided to take a trip to Colombia and I thought I could make it a makeover holiday! I was mesmerised by the lovely photos on one surgeon's website and decided to go for it. I made full payment to secure a surgery date. When i arrived at the consult, he was so rude and unprofessional. He just looked at me and said 250cc was the biggest I could go without doing any measurements. So I cancelled the surgery. I was very disappointed as I took time off for it. I run my own business so that was my once a year opportunity. But now i'm so glad I waited because I wouldn't have been happy with the result if I went ahead. 

Early this year I made an appointment with Dr Miroshnik. He listened to what I had to say about a desirable outcome. Based on that and measurements, he recommended 295, 330 or 345cc anatomical implants. He said it would give me a very proportional and natural look with a good amount of side boobs to match my bum and accentuate my waist! He was leaning more towards 295 because I have a small frame and I want to prioritise a natural look. 

I had the surgery yesterday at East Sydney Private Hospital. All the staff was so nice and Dr. M really made an effort to calm my nerves! They looked after me really well. They assessed my levels of pain regularly and gave me pain meds when I needed. When I was more alert, Dr M came in to tell me that everything went smoothly. I was surprised to hear that he ended up using the 330cc because I had quite a lot of pec muscles and they had an effect of squashing the implants. So he had to use bigger ones to achieve the same result. Now my chest is really tight! The implants look kind of small but I know it's way too early to judge. So i'll be patient and just focus on resting for now.

Sorry girls it's such a long story! I think I'm just really glad that I did lots of research and waited for the right time to have the op so I can let my body heal properly. I'll be putting pics up soon. Feel free to send me an FR if you would like to see them! Or if you wanna ask me anything regarding my experience, I'll be more than happy to help out!

Sorry girls, haven't been posting much after the op. 

I've just uploaded photos in the gallery and somehow they are not in the order that I arranged! 

I started with nothing and I have progress pics of 3, 7 and 21 days PO! Hope this will help anyone with similar stats who's considering a BA or Dr M as their surgeon!

@SubtleC had a look at your pics & they're looking absolutely amazing!!!! 

Cant na wait for the day I can have mine - my dr is Dr M as well. 

Thanks LizD! When is your op and how many cc you getting? I had such a good experience! Now I just hope I recover well and don't get any complications down the track. I feel so much more confident and I don't get embarrassed when my friends make boob jokes!
