Me Monday's v.1

I was never one of those girls that was blessed with boobs. None at all actually.
I was one of those girls that wished I had a little something more.
Never filled out a shirt.
Never had cleavage.
Heck, I never fill in a bra (there was always a little extra space).

I always wondered what it would be like to be larger boobs. I never thought of having anything extravagant and 'playboy-ish'...just a little something to look like a girl and not be flat. I know some women think it is no big deal the size you are, but for me it did bother me a little. Not to the extent where I had horrible self-esteem...it was just something I dreamed about.

In 2009, I started talking to my friend about where and who did her boob job. She said she researched and researched a million times. Well, this girl is one of my best friends so I totally took her advice.

In August 2009, I made an appointment to have a consultation with a doctor in Beverly Hills. {Side Note: Tony was deployed during this time period, but he was well aware of everything going on.} I went to the appointment with my mom and Aarika. Mom had a million and one questions for the doctor, as did I, but I think she had many many more than me. The doctor was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. to say the least. He answered every.single.question. we had, and not just answered it, but when into detail. The appointment was about 2-3 hours and I heard everything I wanted to hear, for the good :)

He talked about where I thought I would want to have my surgery. Whether to go through the armpit, through the nipple or under the boob. He gives his opinion based on the size & shape of your boobs, plus any other thing he feels the need to express as to how your body is developed. We decided to have my implants go through my nipple. He assured me a over and over that the scar would go away and I wouldn't even notice it anymore (he was right). We decided I would have saline implants.

I made my surgery appointment for mid September 2009. I was the first surgery of the day. I had to be there at 6:30am. It was me and mom. She brought me. I had not been nervous the entire time from the first appointment until now. I was fine when we walked in the surgical center. Then the nurse called my name, I said bye and I love you to mom. Mind you I have never had surgery before. They brought me to the back and that is when it hit me. I then realized I am really getting a boob job. I put my robe on, laid on the bed and they started putting IV's in me. All I could think is
What the fuck am I doing?!?! Am I really getting a boob job?!?! Wow I am really doing this!!

The doctor's came over talked a bit to me to tell me the exact procedure of everything. Gave me an IV of antibiotics through my hand (they couldn't locate the vein in my arm), holy shit that hurt!!! It totally stung!!
Then they strap my legs and arms down...yup, they want to make sure you don't flinch or anything through the procedure. They put tons of blankets on me because it was freezing to say the least. Not to mention I was getting more and more nervous, so I began shaking. The nurse rubbed my legs to calm me down.

Next time doctor put the next IV in my hand...don't remember what this was LOL Oh wait yes I do..so stupid of me. It was the anesthesia. It was sleepy time for Lindz :) He started the drip while the actual doctor was talking to him to relax me.
I failed to mention I was laying there with two male doctors and a female nurse with my surgical robe wide open...yup, my entire front torso was exposed. Have I mentioned before I am not one to show off my body?!?!
So back to the story...the doctor was talking to me. Asking me questions about my family. I remember telling him I have three sisters. That's it. Then I was out. I can still picture it today. I saw the bright lights above my head and I was gone. I was in the process of getting a boob job :)

About an hour or so later, I think, it was finished. I was in the recovery room waiting to wake up. I finally did and was not in pain at all. Not one ounce. I was all tied up in a bandage ready to go home with mom.
Driving home I felt totally fine. Didn't feel nauseous at all. Went home and laid down...ok, well not laid I had to be propped up for the next week or so. The recovery wasn't too bad. Honest to God. I was only in major pain one day, day three after surgery. My back was killing me because I had the implants put in  behind my muscles...more natural looking. Well, that means they have to separate your muscle from your ribs. Yea sounds gross huh? It hurt..I was uncomfortable all day. But that was the worst of it. Other than that, no pain at all. Each boob heels at a different pace, one falls before the other (kinda weirded me out)...but eventually, it was all good :)

I went from a size 34 A to 34 D. Yup, I am a D cup and oh so proud!! :)
I went from having nothing to filling out all my shirts AND bras!!
I love my decision on having a boob job. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I am not one to show off my body and wear super low cut shirts...I like the fact that I feel girlier and sexier for my husband.
Oh and let me just tell you all now...I in no way did this for Tony, it was something I wanted to do for myself and I actually made it happen. I paid for it all on my own, no financing or anything :) I'm kinda proud.
He never once pressured me into having it done. As a matter of fact, I brought it up to him. Although, Tony is a happy husband with my decision.

I know once I have children, they may not be as perky and perfect as they are now...but I am well aware of that and will most likely have the surgery again once I am done having children and know that my boobs are free of babies ;)

I went from this (no boobs, no cleavage)
to
this (boobs, cleavage)

Love how I look and feel now!!

Nice boobs (hehe)
I would like a boob lift maybe, mine are large and since having my son, kind of saggy. :(

David and Elizabeth said...

What's nice is you did it for the right reason--yourself! You look so confident!

Kate said...

You got a really good boob job and clearly you can't get any better than a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon! Way to do something for yourself. Pay for it by yourself. You look great!! (but you did look amazing beforehand too!)

Sarah the Writer said...

That's good that you did it for yourself. Some girls do it because of their friends or the guy they're dating or even to get ahead in Hollywood (if they want to go that route). But yours was for you, and you look great (before and after).

I'm kinda in the opposite predicament: I kind of want to get a breast reduction. Oh, the "joys" of being plus-sized...

Rebekah said...

That's awesome that you did it for yourself! If I were to ever have mine done, it would be after I have kids. Just to have them put back where they're supposed to go!

Megan said...

Awesome post, girl! So glad you shared!! I have thought about it before because I also have no boobs, but I will probably do it after I have kids! They look great (that's awkward to say) haha!!

Thank you for sharing your story! I'm so glad that it was a good experience for you!!
