WHY DID YOU WANT THE PROCEDURE?
My older sister has always been my role model and she had recently invested in a new pair of boobs. I had lost a bit of weight and decided to have a consultation to see if there would be anything they could do to replace what I had lost in my breasts through my weight loss. On top of that, I felt that a new set of boobs would increase my confidence as I was fairly self-conscious about the size of my boobs, which had decreased from a D to a B.
WHERE YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY OR PARTNER SUPPORTIVE?
I am lucky to have a very laid back family. My parents and partner did not encourage the surgery but supported me fully with my decision. They told me I was fine the way I was before but every girl feels that they have room for improvement.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MYA?
MYA was my first choice as they were everywhere and even has a forum where patients discuss their journey and procedures. They also give reviews and answer questions. It made me feel very comfortable with the company.
WAS YOUR PROCEDURE DONE IN TIME FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION OR REASON?
I wanted my boobs for Summer and was lucky enough to get an early booking for surgery with MYA. This avoided the long anticipated wait for surgery and allowed me to fully recover in time for my holiday 7 weeks post-op. It also allowed me a little bit of time to get used to my new boobs and buy some new bikinis before my holiday.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SURGEON?
My surgeon was extremely professional and advised me on the size and shape he recommended for my figure. Although he recommended slightly bigger than I wanted, he guided me to the right decision and showed me what these would look like on me. He made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. My surgeon welcomed me on the day of my surgery and went through the plans for the operation. He told me what I should expect and gave me a big hug before leading me into theatre.
HOW WAS YOUR PROCEDURE DAY?
I was nervous for the procedure but the staff ensured that I was made to feel comfortable before my operation and even had a chat with me whilst I was being put to sleep. I was frequently informed that the pain and aftercare would be different for every person. I went into theatre expecting the worse but was allowed to leave the hospital in a matter of hours.
HOW WAS YOUR RECOVERY?
I woke up after surgery a little confused but slept a while to wear off the drugs. Once I had awoken properly, I was checked on by a nurse a number of times and shortly after was allowed to leave and go home. The next 5-10 days were spent resting but I was pleasantly surprised with the level of pain I experienced. Although there was a constant mild ache, the pain was extremely manageable and if I had any concerns I had my patient coordinator to contact. Within 3 months my swelling was almost gone and by 6 months time I felt fully recovered.
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR RESULTS?
I am over the moon with my results and wouldn’t change my boobs for the world. They have helped me regain the confidence I lost with my weightloss and allowed me to feel confident in my own skin.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND MYA AND THIS PROCEDURE TO OTHERS?
If any girl with confidence/general boob issues were wondering whether to go ahead with surgery I would 100% recommend MYA and this procedure. Although the idea of surgery is daunting, the results allow you to regain confidence and comfort in your own skin.
