Since I’ve started my blog back a year ago, my top post has been “Sleeping Positions After Breast Augmentation“
And because I’m getting readers from literally all over the world looking for answers, I figured let’s talk about it
(P.S. Thank you to all my readers for your love and support. You guys keep me motivated!)
Breast Augmentation Part II
It will be a year this January since I’ve gotten my breast augmentation done
Some girls actually celebrate that shit. I’m not about that life LOL
Although, I’m not throwing a party for my babies. I must say, it was THE BEST DECISION I’ve ever made
So if you are in the fence about it, try to think about WHY?
When I first thought about getting it done- here are some things that stopped me:
People I was dating at the time (didn’t like their experiences with past “fake boobs”)
Let me clarify the above:
A LOT has changed with surgeries today- if you want them NATURAL, you can get them natural. They will feel natural, bounce around like yours do, if yours is saggy now, they will be saggy then- only bigger. And if you want them fake looking (Pamela Anderson version), then you can get those too!
Just make sure you go to the right surgeon, someone with 20+ years of experience with track record to prove it.
My doctor was Dr. Jeffrey Darrow, he was absolutely fantastic.
He has the experience, education and track record. Feel free to look him up if you are in Boston!
He asked me many questions to make sure I would be 100% happy when everything was “said and done,” and in addition, Ryan and I spent HOURS looking at girls with my height, weight, and boob size (prior to surgery and post surgery) to figure out how it would look on me. It was at times, super nerve wrecking.
But research is needed in order for you to choose what is right for you!
I was also afraid I’d lose sensitivity but it’s so rare to happen. And thankfully, it didn’t.
The procedure itself was super smooth and quick (1 hour and a half tops?).
The recovery period is 1 week, yes one week before you’re back to work with your babes!
But during that one week, you will need someone around to help you out.
They don’t start looking 100% natural until I would say at least 3-6 months in.
(depending on the person)
I’d ask your doctor, as it also depends which surgery you’ll choose to do (under boobs, through the nipples, or arm pit).
I was told through the nipples is a no-no, that’s when you are more likely to lose sensitivity.
I did under the boobs, it was the best decision as the cut fades so much, you can hardly see it. And it’s the one likely to heal better and look more natural. Again, consult with your doctor as this was my experience.
Sleeping Positions from MY experience, the first 3 months you need to be very careful.
Sleep upright or on your sides with a sports bra on- don’t go to bed in your birthday suit haha!
At least not for a while.
At the same time, if you are not sleeping well in those positions, you need to consult with your doctor as sleep is a big factor for the healing process.
I now sleep in any position I wish. I honestly have certain positions that are needed for me to fall asleep, otherwise I won’t. So I can’t do without them. But my boobs feel 100% healed.
Keep in mind, it will still feel super weird sleeping with them. Before, I’d sleep on my belly and I wouldn’t really feel any discomfort, but now I do a little because I have these big boobs that are in the way haha!
Also, keep in mind, bathing suit shopping will be SUPER tough depending on the size you choose. Mine is impossible. I literally had the hardest time this summer. And lingerie, don’t get me started. It will have to be all Victoria’s Secret. And I was fortunate to find a great store in Italy, where they have super sexy lingerie in my size. And it’s actually affordable (win win).
Comment below if you’d like suggestions on stores for a future post and I can talk more about that.
Also, dresses you normally can pull off with no bras? Say goodbye to all of them.
You won’t be able to pull it off anymore.
Those are all things you must consider prior to surgery.
I knew most of these things but not to the extent that I know now.
Do I regret it? Absolutely not.
I’d do it again and again and again.
And maybe, I’d even go bigger.
But I’m tiny so that’d probably not be the best decision.
Keep in mind though,
When in DOUBT, go bigger.
No one ever regrets going big 😉
Your Doctor will always suggest a “moderate” size. I was suggested to go 2 sizes smaller, and I would’ve hated it.
I want it to be noticeable!
I understand not everyone will feel the same way.
I have friends that wanted no one to notice.
So they went just a size up.
I like drama when it comes to my image. I’m exotic and bold, so I wanted my boobs to match my personality.
And to be honest, at work its super unnoticeable. It depends on what you wear.
One last tip- don’t worry about “the noise” and don’t look for approval.
Do what makes YOU happy.
People will hate all day or they will support you but you will NEVER make everyone happy.
And that should not matter anyway. Because the only person who needs to be happy is YOU.
And loving your body is the best thing in the world.
If it’s something that only surgery can do for you, I support 100%.
Boobs won’t grow by working out but your butt will, for example.
There are some things we have no control of and others we have full control of. 😉
Any questions, please comment below and I’ll be happy to answer them! 🙂 xx
