My Breast Augmentation Journey
Age: 33 years old
Height: 5ft 5
Weight: 8 stone
Procedure: Breast Augmentation
Pre-op bra size: 32A
Post-op bra size: 32E
Why did you want the procedure?
I decided to have a breast augmentation as I was always unhappy with the size of my breasts and longed to be able to wear dresses without wearing padded bras.
What did you pack on the day of your procedure?
How was the day of your procedure?
On the day of my surgery I was feeling extremely excited but apprehensive at the same time. I had an early admission time of 7.30am so had to get up at 4.00am.
I had my breast augmentation on Wednesday 25th March in Birmingham. I was a 32a pre-op and had 550cc overs, with the hope of being a 32e. I made sure to do a lot of reading online before my op so that I could find the best post-op bra to wear.
Why did you choose MACOM?
After reading a lot of confusing things online about what size bra you should buy post-op I stumbled upon a website called ''Macom Medical''. It immediately grabbed my attention as one of the first things I read was that you don't need to guess what size you will be after surgery, you just order your current back size as the bras are made out of medical grade compression material that expands and changes with your breasts! This for me sounded like a dream... a bra that would definitely fit me and would last throughout the gruelling 6 weeks recovery period. I decided to order the i-bra as it offers more support for larger implants. When it arrived I tried it on and it felt like a dream, so comfortable and snug. I originally just ordered the one bra to try it but after trying it on I ordered 2 more. I am now 6 weeks post op and I have been wearing my bras religiously. I honestly feel that they have helped my recovery to be as painless as possible as I feel that I have the right amount of support but I still feel very comfortable with them on. I cannot recommend them highly enough as they have really helped to make this journey one of the most amazing journeys of my life!!!
How was your recovery?
The day after my surgery I felt very tired and sore. I was lucky enough to have an amazing husband who looked after me throughout my recovery.
Are you happy with your results?
I am now 7 weeks post-op and I am still wearing my post-op compression bras daily. I absolutely love my new breasts and the fact that they feel like a part of me already. I have been to see my surgeon and he was very pleased with my results and has signed me off. I am using bio oil on my scars to help them to heal better.
