20yr old, Scared that my Breast Augmentation won't look good.

I am booked into have my breast augmentation next week but over the last few days I have become really anxious over this choice. I am scared that: 1) It's not going to look natural or good. I am a 10A-B and want to go to a large 10C (D at absolute max.) 2) At some point in the near future, something will go wrong and I will end up with deformed horrible boobs. 3. I'm not going to feel/ look like myself. Is there any information or advice that may calm my nerves? Am I making a mistake?

    Hi Newgirl1234567,
    It is quite normal to be nervous before any surgical procedure, no matter how large or small, and be it reconstructive or cosmetic in nature. If you are anxious about your procedure, you should be in contact with your surgeon and their staff to make sure all your questions and concerns are addressed. It is important that you have established trust in your surgeon and their team, that you both have mutual goals in mind, that you are aware of the potential risks and complications, and that you are well prepared for your recovery. 
    All the very best.
