of a Breast Surgery Patient
course I always wondered and fantasized about what it would
be like to have a breast augmentation, But it always seemed
so complicated and un real for me.
To tell you a little about me, I'm a twenty three year old,
single mother of a 3 year old little son named Chris. I work
full-time, plus waitress part-time, go to school and raise
my son. So life as I see it is pretty full and overwhelming.
I still always admired girls who had implants, and wished
I to could have them.
December of 2001, my sister had her augmentation done. Her
breast's looked beautiful!! I was so jealous of her!
Here I was a single mother, already feeling not skinny enough,
my breast were drooping from nursing my son, I rarely had
time to put make-up on, and my 5'4'' 105 pd sister gets her
breast done. She was what I wanted to be. She had the confidence
in herself that I wanted to have, But I still never thought
it would happen.
in August of 2003, my time had arose. I met Dr. Corbin
and his staff for my consultation and they were so patient
with me. I was real nervous, because when you fantasize
about what it would be like to have an augmentation, it's
just a fantasy, it's not real, and now it was becoming real.
I called and asked questions probably everyday for 2 weeks,
before my pre-oprative appointment even came. Then I had my
preoperative appointment Monday August 8th, and Surgery was
scheduled for Wednesday August 20th. I was so nervous. I had
weird dreams. My mind was constantly racing with questions
but I was determined to have surgery.
my consultation with Dr. Corbin he assessed my breast and
stated I needed a lift. I knew at that time I didn't feel
good about myself and there was one of the reasons. I needed
a lift on the left breast due to it being quite a bit uneven
with my right side.
agreed. Anything to make my breast beautiful. I also
was a candidate for silicone implants, which after doing a
lot of research on the difference and the naturality of saline
versus silicone. I chose the silicone. I wanted to look natural
so when Marilyn, the nurse at Dr. Corbin's sized me I decided
