"When I was pregnant with my first child my breasts grew to a DD, which I loved, but they soon shrank back to their original A cup. This caused stretch marks and a lot of excess skin and I ended up in an even worse situation than I had been. My breasts were not only small but very un-shapely. So much so that I wouldn’t do anything that showed off my body like going swimming or sunbathing on holiday.
I had always wanted a breast augmentation during my 20s but financially wasn’t in the position to do so. After discussing it with my husband, I decided to take the plunge and get it done.
Once my appointment for surgery had come through, I had no nerves at all, just pure excitement. The night before surgery, I didn’t sleep at all as I was looking forward to the final result so much – I knew it was going to empower me, and change my whole outlook on life.
Once I had completely healed, I was thrilled with the result.* My family was so supportive of the procedure. They knew how I had felt about the size of my breasts, and how much it had held me back…
Surgery was a way of doing something for me. It really has changed how I feel about my life, and how I interact with my friends and family."
