When my boyfriend proposed to me, one of my first thoughts was the dress I would get. I had a strapless style in mind for mine, and couldn’t wait to get trying them on. My excitement didn’t last for long. My breasts were so small, the strapless dresses I liked didn’t suit and I just felt like I was settling for a dress that was second best.
Walking down the aisle in a dress I wasn’t 100% happy with did nothing for my confidence levels. It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, and I was consumed with feeling so unhappy with myself, that it was ruined for me. That was when I knew I had to do something about it.
I did a lot of research into breast augmentation surgery and decided to have it done in time for my friend’s wedding. I had been asked to be a bridesmaid, and I felt like it was a second chance to relive my wedding day all over again.
My main fear in the run up was that I wouldn’t like my body shape even after having major surgery – I was at my lowest point and knew this was the only chance I had to shake off those insecurities.
Now I wouldn’t change them for anything; the procedure has completely changed my life. If anyone is considering having cosmetic surgery I would say, if it’s what you want and it improves your self-confidence, then it’s money well spent."
