Breast Implants & Breast Augmentation Stories from Our Visitors
Male Visitors' Stories - A Ray of Sunshine
My wife and I have been using your site through our experience and I wrote something down that I wanted to share with everyone.
My wife, Felicia, had her breast augmentation done just four days ago and even though she's sore, tired and everything else associated with the post surgery routine -- there is a twinkle in her eye that I haven't seen there for quite some time. She is genuinely happy with what she has had done -- and now so am I. Let me fill you in...
I don't want to tell you the story about the surgery -- give you the play by play so to speak -- there's enough information and support on this website to do that. I want to tell you how I watched my wife's dream come true.
I met Felicia about 13 years ago, when we were both teenagers, we basically grew up with one another. I've always loved her the way that she was (barely an "A" cup), but I've also seen and been a part of her "problem". You see, my wife is a very beautiful person -- not just physically, but as a loving, caring human being. But, she has always had this black cloud hanging over her that just wouldn't let her be. It affected every aspect of her life -- not just intimacy, but everything from the moment she woke up to the time she went to bed. Clothes that she couldn't wear, TV shows and movies that she couldn't watch, activities that she couldn't do -- why? Because they made her very uncomfortable, she didn't feel like a woman. Yeah, yeah, I know... but it's so easy to say that you should be happy with who you are and what you have. And believe me, I've been here to say that all the while. Until you have to live that way yourself, you can never completely understand. She tried everything, padded bras, breast enhancers -- the whole nine yards -- just so she could feel "normal".
We thought about the surgery, but cost and lack of information were pushing it away at every turn. To be honest, I didn't want her to have it done. I didn't want my wife to have to go to such extremes so she could feel the way that she should already feel.
One day, I don't remember when exactly, she made it clear that it was no longer a question of "if" she'd get the surgery but when. At that time I decided to make it a point to find out as much as I possibly could about breast augmentation. Then I found this website. The information, the community of women (and some men) able to read, or answer questions and talk about so many aspects of surgery, recovery and living with similar issues.
I guess my point is this: Read up, ask questions and most importantly listen. Do your best to be supportive. It doesn't matter if you decide to go through with the surgery or opt not to and try to handle your situation differently -- that choice must always be made by the individual. What does matter is that you be honest with yourself about what you want, and do the research to get the answers you need. We did.
Thank you Nicole, and everyone who has been a part of this experience. Thank you for turning my wife's black cloud into golden rays of Sunshine!
