Breast Implants and Breast Augmentation Stories from our Visitors

If you have already read Nicole's Story, you have a pretty good idea what this section of the website is all about. After several women emailed their breast augmentation stories to us, we thought it would be great to have women share their full-length recovery stories after their breast implant surgeries for everyone's benefit. Thankfully, many women have contributed, some in more detail than others.

Here are the stories of our visitors. Many names have been changed for privacy. Where appropriate, there is detail in parentheses so you can decide if you are interested. Click on a name to read.

Breast Augmentation in Las Vegas, NV


My story goes like this. I had nice shapely A breasts. Probably AA, I never had them actually sized professionally. I was tired of wearing push up bras to make clothes look nice. I was 25, 5' 8", 120 pounds. I have a very tall slim frame. I wanted breasts so I would look better in clothes and to feel sexy. I was moving to Las Vegas from Colorado Springs so I figured, people in Vegas all have big breasts.

I researched on the internet and found a plastic surgeon that only charged $3000.00 for implants and surgery! I could afford that! That was in June 2001. I arrived in Las Vegas, and ended up having a huge anxiety attack. I managed to deal with it and not get put on medication. I still wanted to get the surgery done, but I was afraid if I was on medication they could not do surgery. How silly.

I made an appointment with my plastic surgeon in October and scheduled the surgery November 8, 2001. I have no children, and still have no plans to have any yet. Right before I thought of surgery I knew someone who had had implants and just had a baby. I will cross that road if I get to it. I was dealing with a lot of stress. I had just purchased a new home, changed jobs, moved to a new state, all within the last 6 months but I wanted to have the surgery before I got to know a lot of people. I was determined to do something I wanted.

The days prior to surgery were scary and exciting. I was ready at times, and ready to cancel the whole thing at other times. My surgery was scheduled at 1:00 pm and I had to arrive an hour prior. Luckily my husband was off work so he was able to take me. The surgery was to take less then 2 hours, and my husband was going to drop me off and pick me up when they called.

I arrived at noon and while in the waiting room with my husband, I asked him what he thought. It was then that my husband told me he didn't even want me to have the surgery. Talk about pressure. I was ready to just say forget this and walk out of the hospital with him. I just sat there. He told me it was my decision and that he saw no need for them, they were fine the way they were. I was this close from losing my non-refundable money and saying forget it? I didn't leave. I was taken into the prep room, put on my gown, got my IV prepared, took a pregnancy test and waited. I had never been in an operating room, nor had surgery of any kind. I remember being cold, probably nerves.

The nurses were all so nice, and efficient. It all went so fast. The anesthesiologist came in, and I remember being calmed by him because he was quite older and had a limp. I thought to myself, he surely has to know what he is doing.

I was taken into the operating room and laid out on the table. I remember I was so cold, freezing. They were placing the warming outfit towels all over me. I was shaking so bad, and all I had on was my panties. Then came the drugs and I was out. I woke up and remembered thinking I wish I hadn' t woken up. I was still cold and shaking uncontrollable. The nurse asked me if I was nauseous, I don't think I answered. She told me she was going to give me a shot in my butt, and I didn't want her to because I thought it would hurt (giggle) of course I didn't even feel it.

I was coming in and out of sleep. I heard them call my husband then he showed up. He later told me that when he saw me he thought something was wrong, he said I was so pale and blue he thought I was dead. I didn't really feel too bad. They gave him all the instructions and we got in the car and drove home. I was awake most of the way home, and didn't feel any pain.

I got home and sat on the couch and doze for the rest of the day. My visit the next day was fine. I remember when he took the tight ace bandage wrap off and I looked down at my breast I smiled so big. They were huge. A to C is a difference. Dr. Canada said everything looked and went well. I remember I only took the pain pill for two days, but the problem was getting up from a lying position. That was almost impossible. And I did slump my shoulders over pretty bad when I walked.

I went through the next week without any concerns. I had some stitches taken out (I had the implant under the muscle and cut under the aorta). Besides being on pain pills I had anxiety pills. I took those to help me sleep. I really didn?t regret anything in the beginning. It was horrible sleeping on my back. I didn?t sleep on my sides for a good three weeks. I was uncomfortable for a while, but I went back to work after a week and was fine at my office job. Everyone was very supportative.

After two weeks the doctor removed all my stitches. It was a little tender and there was a little bleeding. He put some normal Band-Aids on. I went home and was sitting up and noticed blood on my shirt. Oh no the scar was bleeding. I tried applying pressure with a washrag and it wouldn?t quit bleeding. I?m not talking much blood either; I am talking a minimal trickle. I have never had anything bleed on me that did not stop, and I freaked! (This was the day before Thanksgiving). I went upstairs to where my husband was and I was balling. I had tears streaming down my face I was so upset. He thought someone had died. He inspected the area and told me not to worry - it was nothing serious.
I went to bed early and worried all night long.

The next day it was still bleeding. I called the doctor and my husband ran to the store and bought some tape Band-Aids - the skin like kinds. The doctor called back and said there was nothing to worry about and the skin Band-Aids stopped the bleeding like a charm.

I just hit my 6 months yesterday. Everything appears normal; they look great and are feeling better everyday. I have some sensation loss on the inside of my left breast, but it seems to be getting better everyday. My anxiety causes me the worst problems. I always worry that I will get an infection, one will deflate, but I deal with it as it comes. I am very pleased I had the surgery and would do it again.
