Surprise surprise I have fake boobs. I know you had no idea baha! I have had 2 boob jobs actually and will have a 3rd after I have another baby.
Read on and I will tell you sizes, kinds, price, complications and what to expect.
The first time around I was 23 and doing my color apprenticeship at a hair salon.
I wasn’t making bank obviously being an apprentice so I decided to go to Oklahoma since the surgery was less. I paid $3500 to get saline implants. Salene is less than silicon also.
I drove there with my boyfriend at the time for a consult and tried on different sizes of implants that you put in a sports bra to get an idea.
I started off with a big A cup before surgery and I added 350cc implants and it put me at a small D.
The surgery was pretty quick and I woke up really hurting. It felt like an elephant had sat on my chest and my boobs looked like footballs. They look crazy at first because it takes time for them to drop.
I did my incision underneath my boob and didn’t have any stitches, just surgical glue. The surgical glue gives you a much less noticeable scar and it heals nicely. I had the same surgical glue done after my C section and you can’t really see it.
The pain wasn’t that bad and only hurt for a few days. I took my pain pills and antibiotic on an empty stomach one morning and puked at 3 different gas stations so def eat when you take it.
Fast forward a year later and I started to notice rippling in the middle. I called the Dr and he just said to gain more weight. I weighed MORE after my surgery so I knew that wasn’t the problem.
The more time that passed the more rippled they got and I was not happy at all because you could totally see it in swimsuits and clothes.
I decided to get another boob job except this time I went to a plastic surgeon in Dallas that was well known for corrections.
I went in for my consult and chose 350cc again only silicone this time since they are less prone to rippling.
I paid $7,000 for these girls and booked it! I had my mom fly down and go with me.
While I was under anesthesia the Dr called my mom and said my pocket had been cut so big by the other Dr and they were going to have to do extensive reconstruction to tighten it up and make it smaller.
Your pocket in case you don’t know is where they cut a place for your implants to go underneath the muscle and if its too big your implants will ripple.
They also told my mom I was going to have to go bigger on my implants to prevent the rippling or get a full breast lift. I was 25 at the time so she made the decision to just go bigger for me.
I remember waking up and feeling so sick and looking at the clock. I freaked out because I had been under for 3 ½ hours!
The Dr explained what had happened and I now had 550cc implants, 200cc bigger than I was.
You guys these are big girls haha. They were really pretty though so I was happy with them and there was zero rippling and there still isn’t any now.
The recovery for this one was harder because they did more work on me but not that bad.
For my third boob job I definitely want to be 350cc and smaller so I’m not sure if I will have to have a lift or have them taken out for 6 months, heal and then put smaller ones in.
Third time’s a charm they say lol.
