Procedure: Breast Enlargement

I didn’t just get “bigger boobs” I became part of a huge MYA family of women supporting and helping each other. From other patients on Instagram following each other journeys and helping each other through, to the team at the clinic, holding my hand through every tear.  Female solidarity at its finest!

Why did you want the procedure?

I always felt that my breasts were an awful shape and really didn’t compliment my shape. It massively affected how I felt about myself and always felt the need to “joke” about them to cover my insecurities,

Were your friends/family/partner supportive?

My family were really supportive. My dad didn’t really want to know much about it apart from that I was safe and informed- which I was 100%. My friends were encouraging as they all knew how long I had considered it.

I really do feel amazing!

Was your procedure done in time for a special occasion or reason

Not in particular- but I am late twenties now and I did not want to spend the last few years of my twenties in a teeshirt on the beach and feeling unhappy with my body. It was a “no time like the present” moment. Sometimes there is never a “perfect time” and you just have to go for it.

Why did you choose MYA as your cosmetic surgery provider?

Obviously I work for MYA so I see and know more about the company than regular patients. With this I see the way MYA care for their patients happiness and safety and it is second to none. The patient experience is paramount and something which made me at eases the whole way through.

How was your consultation?

My surgeon consult was nerve wracking! Taking your top off in front of someone to examine an area you hate is never going to be something you look forward too. But Dr Andrea made me feel so at ease and explained everything to me.

How would you describe your surgeon?

Honest. Dr Andrea wasn’t there to sell me the dream and tell me what I wanted to hear. Instead, we had a thorough discussion about what I wanted and how/if this was achievable. He ensured I not only knew the benefits but also any potential limitations to my surgery.

“Before boobie cast”

How did you fund your procedure?

I saved a bit and got a 0% credit card for the remainder.

So it’s all done!! Can’t believe this time an hour ago I was in theatre. I’ve had so much support from you all, thank you so much....

How was the day of your procedure?

Petrified. I was so nervous about being put to sleep and how I was going to feel after when I woke up. But I started to feel much better as I met the hospital staff, they made me feel really safe and supported

How was your recovery?

Emotional. I was a wreck. It took a good 4 weeks for me to start liking the result and feeling back to myself. I thought they looked weird, I felt bloated, sluggish and overwhelmed. I was crying to the nurse nearly everyday thinking “they will never change” I really wasn’t prepared for the emotional post-op roller-coaster, but it is a big decision to make and it can affect everyone so differently after.

I Had the best time at the MYA shoot!

Are you happy with your results?

YES YES YES. I am so happy with the size and shape. They look so natural and are exactly what I hoped for.

Proud to be a #myagirl

Would you recommend this procedure and MYA to others?

Without a shadow of a doubt! I would recommend MYA to anyone. I didn’t just get “bigger boobs” I became part of a huge MYA family of women supporting and helping each other. From other patients on Instagram following each other journeys and helping each other through, to the team at the clinic, holding my hand through every tear.  Female solidarity at its finest!

What tips would you give other woman looking to have this procedure?

If it is something you really want and you are doing it for you- go for it. Why let something hold you back for so long.

I Love being able to wear things like this now!

We know you have had a physical change but do you feel any different since having your procedure?

I feel so much more confident in myself. From holidays to getting a shower, I finally feel happy with my body and comfortable in my own skin.

What are you looking forward to the most now that you have had your procedure?

Holidays! I would never feel confident in swimwear and the thought of ever going away with a significant other or on a big girls holiday was awful, but now I can just relax and stop worrying about how I look and know I will feel confident.

I feel so much more confident in myself.

How did you feel in the run-up to photoshoot?

Nervous- it is something out of my comfort zone and something I would have been totally against prior to the procedure!

At first I was stiff as a board! But everyone was so encouraging and supporting each other I soon felt comfortable. I felt proud of myself after for putting myself in a position I wouldn’t usually- it really reminded me why I chose to do this.

There has been recent criticisms and a call for the ban of the advertisement of cosmetic surgery - what do you think?

Its extremely insulting and obviously broadcast by someone who is uneducated in this field. It is suggesting that anyone who choses to proceed with cosmetic surgery are weak, vulnerable and impressionable. When actually it is strong, independent women making an informed choice on something to do with their own bodies.

Girls supporting girls, giving me all the confidence in the world ❤️
