Boob Job

Recommended Posts

So, I have been wanting to get breast implants for a long time. My FI and I were talking about it again last night and he agreed to it. It can be my present for the wedding. BUT, I am scared. Is there anyone out there that has been through it? Do you think if I just go up one size that my dress will be able to be let out a bit? AHHH!! I want this so bad but I am so scared lol... smile105.gif

I actually am planning on getting a boob job in the next two years. I'm so freaking excited. DH finally agreed to it as well.

 

I've never been one for cosemetic surgery, but this is something I have recently decided I wanted (my boobs kind of look different after having a baby, and I'm less than happy with them). I asked about this recently and recieved some really helpful advice from the girls on here. I wish I could get them done sooner, but I'm going to wait until we have baby #2 as to not "ruin" the investment.

 

I've already picked out the boobs I want (in terms of size). Well as of right now! I may have to scope out a few more racks before making my final choice.

 

When do you think you'll get it done? You'll have to tell me how it goes!

My friend did it a few months ago. She found websites that told you how much rice to put in pantyhose to try out sizes. She didn't go that big & looks totally proportional.

I don't know for sure. I just don't want to take any chances!

 

Although someone told me that her surgeon told her not to bother getting implants if she was planning to have kids within the next 5 years. I think he implied it would be a waste and that she should wait until after if she was planning to have kids. I guess it makes sense because with implants, your breasts will still expand during pregnancy and when your breast milk comes in. I just wouldn't want to get them done, have another kid, and then have to head back to the table to make "repairs" so I was planning on investigating that a little more. Because if I could get them done sooner, I would love to.

 

I still have to do more research.

I personally don't know much about boob jobs in particular, but I had my nose done back in 1999, and it was the best decision I ever made. I think plastic surgery, when done for the right reasons, is a wonderful thing that can really help your self esteem.

 

I do suggest - do a LOT of research on your surgeon. Get a recommendation from other doctors, friends, whatever; and talk to more than one if you aren't blown away by the first guy. Ask to see examples of his work. I ended up with a GREAT nose guy who specialized in face work...I heard of him through my family doctor and he was great. My mom had a breast reduction by a different doctor and it turned out terrible (she had hers years before I had my surgery, so I learned from her mistake).

 

I also recommend getting it done EARLY, especially if you are trying to do it before your wedding. Things can sometimes happen and complications CAN occur, even with the best surgeon out there. I ended up having a second surgery due to a fluke complication (my body's fault, not the doctor) a year or so after my first. From what I know of boob jobs, they definitely need time to 'settle' and for the scars to heal.

 

Best of luck with your decision!

Oh how exciting! I wish I could do mine :o( It's just not in my budget right now though ;o( BOHOHO

 

Are you scared of the pain or what are you scared of? Just make sure you research your doctor, etc. See their work, etc.

 

What size are you now. It's hard to say b/c I dont know your build, if your skinny minnie, average, or curvy, etc. I'd have to say that it depends on each individual's body. If you are super thin, DEF dont go too big, maybe one size up. And as far as the pain, everyone heals diff.

 

- Joe's one sister had it done years ago and she said it was terrible and she couldn't get outta bed.

- But his other sister just got hers done in Dec and was up the next day doing things aorund the house, she said it was alil sore but not bad at all. She was back at work in a few days. Also my cuz, and a few others said it was pie.

-Another friend got hers done about 5 years ago, and said it was nothing AND got them done again to be bigger. She also had a baby after and said the boobs didnt interfer at all.

- A few other gals said it was terrible pain, felt like someone was pounding on her chest non stop and they hated it. But they are pretty dramatic if you ask me.

Im not positive on that. I mean, my one friend had her done twice before she had her baby and she said they are fine. I dont think she breast fed but as far as them going back down, she was ok. But again- everyone's different.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
