For 21-year old Emily Simmons (member name: lil_em20), getting a breast augmentation has been the best decision she has taken for herself. Emily is simply irresistible with her new twins and feels much more confident and sexy.
See Emily’s Before & After Plastic Surgery Pictures Album.
After years of feeling boyish with her 32A breasts, the British young women went under the knife last summer and got herself 32DD Mentor Round Moderate Plus Profile textured implants placed over the muscle with an inframmary incision (breast fold/crease). Make Me Heal checked in with Emily at the one year anniversary to see how Emily feels about her plastic surgery experience. Suffice to say, And since one year, Emily wears proudly a 32 DD and happily threw away her 32 A bras…
Before deciding whether to have a breast augmentation, Emily researched the procedure for about a year and looked at many before/after plastic surgery pictures on the Make Me Heal website to determine what type of implants to get and how many CCs she wanted for her implants.
Emily is extremely happy with her results and strongly suggest to everyone: “You must research into every aspect of the procedure so you are aware of any complications that could occur and also find out tips for recovery. Make sure you decide that you 100% want the procedure before going ahead.”
Make Me Heal: When did you first have the idea to have your breast augmentation?
Emily: August 2006
Make Me Heal: What were your motivations behind your decision to have the procedure?
Emily: I wanted to be more in proportion, to increase my confidence.
Make Me Heal: How long did it take you to make a decision and was it an easy or difficult one to make?
Emily: I thoroughly researched the procedure for a couple of months before making a decision on whether to go ahead with the procedure. I looked into the advantages and disadvantages as well as the complications that could occur. I went to a surgeon who my mum had been to and therefore felt confident that I would end up with a great result. The decision was an easy one.
Make Me Heal: Did your family, friends, and any other people in your close circle give you support, opposition, or did you make this decision without considering them?
Emily: I consulted my Mum about it who said if I wanted it done and researched it enough then I should do, it if it was definitely what I wanted.
Make Me Heal: How did you research the procedure and come to decide on this particular procedure?
Emily: I used forums and “websited” to find answers to questions and to view before and after photos.
Make Me Heal: Please discuss your research process and all research sources you used.
Emily: I emailed people who had gone through with the procedure asking them questions, I also posted questions on forums and viewed before and after photos.
Make Me Heal: Please discuss if you used any of Make Me Heal’s resources.
Emily: I used the message boards and the pictures library.
Make Me Heal: How did you come to choose your doctor?
Emily: I went to the same doctor my mum went to 15 years ago, and only had that one consultation. I wouldn’t have been happy going to a doctor that hadn’t been recommended.
Make Me Heal: Please discuss if you have any role in deciding the type of technique used for your surgery by the doctor?
Emily: My surgeon let me choose between 2 sizes of implants that he felt would suit my body size.
Make Me Heal: How were you feeling the night before the surgery and on the moments before the surgery itself?
Emily: I was nervous yet extremely excited as I knew it would be a life changing thing.
Make Me Heal: How was the recovery process?
Emily: It went well. I had an aching pain which lasted about 7 days and was at its worse on the 6th day as this is when the bruising seemed to come out. It was difficult to move my arms too much but this subsided after about 9 days. I wasn’t able to shower properly until my stitches had been removed at day 10. I wore a tight compression bra 24/7 for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to wear normal bras.
Make Me Heal: What side effects you experienced?
Emily: I had a reaction to the anesthetic so I was very sick for the first 2 days and couldn’t eat anything. The worst part of the recovery was day 6 when the bruising came out and it was painful to move around.
Make Me Heal: Please discuss the pain or discomfort you experienced during the recovery?
Emily: It was an aching sensation rather than a full on pain.
Make Me Heal: How well prepared were you for the recovery from physical, emotional, and mental respects? Did you do any research to make your recovery smoother?
Emily: I researched thoroughly therefore I was prepared for the recovery.
Make Me Heal: What are your top recovery tips to other patients?
Emily: Take it easy and try to get someone to help you do the day to day things you need to do.
Make Me Heal: How happy are you with the results?
Emily: I am extremely happy, no regrets.
Make Me Heal: How has your makeover impacted your life?
Emily: I feel more like a woman rather than looking like a child, this has then increased my confidence so much.
Make Me Heal: Would you have done anything differently if you had the chance?
Make Me Heal: What is your final word of advice to other people considering the procedure you had?
Emily: You must research into every aspect of the procedure so you are aware of any complications that could occur and also find out tips for recovery etc. Follow your surgeon’s advice and find your perfect surgeon before rushing into it. Make sure you decide that you 100% want the procedure before going ahead.
Make Me Heal: Was Make Me Heal beneficial to you along your journey?
Emily: Yes Make Me Heal was very beneficial. It allowed me to view other peoples’ experiences and complications as well and ask questions. I wasn’t sure about it and view a lot of before and after photos.
