Jennifer’s Blog: No Regrets

April 30th, 2009

Absolutely no regrets!  Those three words sum up my feelings now, almost 5 years since I have had my breast augmentation surgery.  It was a life-changing moment for me.  Excitement, nervousness and fear…

I experienced every one of those emotions.  But, I can honestly say that when I look back now, I wouldn’t do anything differently.  I do remember the anxieties I felt while sizing, my husband sitting there just nodding and saying, “It’s what you want, it’s what makes you comfortable.”  In the end, I really did choose what made ME feel comfortable!  So, reading Melissa’s Blog today brought me right back to that room with the sports bra and the “girls” (implant sizers) laid out in front of me to choose.

After having 4 children and nursing all 4 children, it was the right decision for me to reclaim my figure.  I wanted to feel sexy again, not self-conscious!  I wanted to fill out my shirts, bras and bathing suits again.  Well, I definitely do fill them out now and I continue to be extremely happy with my final result.  The documentary film title says it all; I was simply RESTORING my body to the pre-childbirth days.  Dr. Bashioum did an amazing job and I will continue to sing his praises.

Director’s Cut: “Restoring Jennifer”

April 29th, 2009

jennifer-still1In 2008, over 300,000 women chose to have breast augmentation surgery.  As a new filmmaker and wife of a plastic surgeon, I wanted to dispel the myth that only Hollywood starlets get boob jobs!  “Restoring Jennifer” is my first documentary short film about a young mother who struggles with the loss of her figure after pregnancy and the act of nursing four children claims her breasts.  Jennifer discusses her desire to return to the more voluptuous breast size she enjoyed before pregnancy.  This film is her story.  Jennifer is open and honest about her reasons why she is considering surgery.  In the concluding minutes of the film we step into Dr. Bashioum’s operating room, see a glimpse of surgery and hear Jennifer’s first words in the recovery room.  She can’t resist taking a quick peek.  Concepts of how images of beauty construct the ideal female form and the role these ideas play in validating self-esteem are explored in this film.  

Check it out, the film is posted on IMDB.com.


Lindsay Bashioum, Director
