So, I didn't want to say anything about getting a breast augmentation until I was 100% positive about going through with it. Well, that day has come for me. My surgery is paid in full (non-refundable), and I have a set in stone surgery day. I know a lot of girls on this site are seeking out to have breast augmentations, lifts.. and so on, so I decided to post this. I know a few other women have blogs going around, but it doesn't hurt to have one more.
Ya know, for informational purposes and what not.
I'm going to be posting NUDE before and after pictures, so be forewarned and don't get butthurt when you see naked boobies.
Another warning, there will ALSO be unedited pictures post surgery too. It may or may not cause issues for those with a weak stomach. If you don't want to see one or the other, PM me and I can C&P text for you.
So, here it is.
I scheduled a consultation with one of the best Seattle area plastic surgeons for a breast augmentation. I've seen too many botched boob jobs, and I was willing to pay more for a GOOD job. I decided on Dr. Braden Stridde. I've seen his work personally, and the guy has been in practice for years. He does gorgeous work, and I knew that if our personalities meshed, he was the guy for me. On January 5th, I went to see him, and to save you a long story, he was phenomenal. Very patient with me and my husband, and VERY informative. He left the room after my consultation and I looked at my husband and said "I'm 100% going with this guy". My husband agreed and went himself to put down the $500 deposit.
Because we paid the deposit up front, and I was a student, we got $1350 off of our surgery! It is a deal that is running until the end of Feb. I went into this process not knowing about this deal, and it felt like a sign. Someone was telling me "do this!".
My pre-op is scheduled for this Thursday, January 12th and my surgery day is 6 days later, January 18th at 7:30am.
My decision is to go with 500-550cc Silicone, round implants. I knew the risks of Silicone, but the natural feel and look they provide I believe is well worth the risk. I've seen videos of them run over, and cut in half and still maintain their shape. They are extremely durable. I'll post the videos below if anyone is curious about them. In the end, I'm hoping for a D-DD.
My first vlog, I'll continue to post them regularly, especially if something important happens that pertains to my surgery.
<-- third update! Youtube deleted my first one. I'll remake a SFW one later if you're subscribed to me.
If I get enough questions about the process too, I'll gladly make a video to answer all of them. Otherwise, don't be afraid to ask me anything relating to breast augmentations.
*I vlogged about going to school for Engineering. As of this semester, I've changed my major from Psych to Eng due to burning out on the social science path. I'm closer to being done with Eng than I am Psych.
And the videos of the silicone implants.

9 hours post op!
24 hours old
(Ignore the bed in the background. In too much pain to actually put the skirt on it.
They look EXTREMELY high up right now. This is what people like to call frankenboob.
The swelling should reduce here in the next 2 weeks and drop in the next 6.
Please feel free to ask questions.
~~3 days post op~~
And the incision progress
~~10 days post op~~
My husband was slacking with picture time, so I just did it myself. lol
And the incisions!
The right one
The blue sutures are gone now, and it feels SO much better.
I'm still terrified of touching the scar area though, so during my showers, I don't go anywhere near them. That's why the purple mark is still there. lol
~~ 16 days post op!~~
The incision scars don't have great pictures, I cant get my hands to stop shaking for the life of me. So I also only have one boob picture! lol
So far, they have gotten SUPER SUPER squishy. They feel AMAZING! Like real boobs, of a person who has never had kids! I love them. This is probably the best decision I have ever made for myself regarding my body.
They still haven't dropped completely though. The right has a few cm's left to drop until they hid the incision all of the way. It might take another month or so. I wont see the full results for another 5 months or so.
And, what side do you think they are? If I go by the VS measurement guide.. I am a 34B...?! What the eff?
And if I go by the normal measurement, I am a 32C.
Which.. none of my OLD 32C bras even come close to fitting in. Thee cups barely cover my nipples.
So what the hell?
