Apparently fake boobs, or *foobs* as we have come to affectionately call them, have been the topic of the month in our home.
Well between hubby and I anyway.
Which style, size and type to choose.
Hubby, being the typical red blooded male, has his firm opinion on size. Me on the other hand, being…well me…begs to differ.
After all, I’m the one who’ll be ‘wearing’ these things.
So sorry hubs, but those Pamela Anderson meets Dolly Parton style ones are not going to happen!
Over the past week or so, I have seen more photo’s of reconstructed breasts than I care to admit. And despite the differing sizes and styles shown, still I couldn’t decide.
So yesterday at my appointment with the Plastic surgeon, I asked to see the implant’s that corresponded with my fill size as it stands now, and the different styles.
His PA showed us both regular and high profile implants.
We always get a giggle out of her when I reach for my iPhone to just snap that pic.
Oh and don’t you just love the size of those needles?
What!! they don’t look huge?
They’re actually longer than my hand.
It’s times like this, I’m so glad I don’t have a needle phobia, or I’d definitely be sporting the new fashionable flat chested look these days.
Not fashion? Well let me tell you, it would be if I was scared of those darn needles.
Anyhooo, after seeing, and handling,
and modeling the implants (as seen in bottom two pics) my two choices as for profiles were Regular or High profile?
Hubby and I decided on the right one, high profile.
meaning me decided that this size was perfect, which means that only two more fills of 50cc each, over the next few weeks and I’m finished expanding.
Yay for that to be over!
The final decision was silicone or saline?
After talking through the options with both the PS and his PA, doing a little
tons of research online I finally opted for silicone.
Yeah I’m still kind of scared because of all the bad publicity silicone implants have had in the past, but knowing that they aren’t permanent anyway, and at some point will have to be replaced, and that they themselves won’t kill me, I figure I would prefer the more natural feel and overall longevity of these v’s the saline.
So choices made (barring any change of mind, and I’m a woman, so my firm decisions mean nothing whatsoever) Surgery should be scheduled within the next 8 weeks.
