Melissa’s Blog: I Love Getting Dressed Now

June 5th, 2009

I am quite pleased with how I look now, if I might say so myself!  And I’m beginning to think my friends are, too.  Initially, I felt a little apprehension coming from a handful of women.  Some were a bit judgmental about surgery, which I could understand.  Some were also a bit taken back as to why I would want to compromise my body.  As I explained, after bearing three children and breast feeding them all, I no longer had shape, nor much breast tissue left.  I know that I am not alone in this predicament following pregnancy.  It became hard for me to shop for bras and even harder for me to shop for tops.  There is just so much I can handle buying XXS small tops, before feeling like a pre-teen girl again.

Well, I concluded this rather awkward discussion, once it became apparent that we each had our own personal viewpoints by offering, “I’m sharing my story on this blog for everyone to read.”  I jotted down on a piece of paper for them to check out.  “My intentions are to help educate women about breast augmentations.  I want to show and tell others that there is another side to why women get breast enhancements, other than to look and feel like cocktail waitresses in Las Vegas.”  So now after my surgery, I’m finding out that what some women deem as an appropriate breast size varies greatly.

Please check back tomorrow to read the conclusion of my journey.

Melissa’s Blog: 24 hrs. after surgery

May 28th, 2009

It’s only been 24 hours after my surgery and I feel amazingly great!  So great, that this morning I woke up, carefully showered, pulled a shirt over my head and then joined my friend for some coffee at the local coffee house.  To simply describe how I feel might be a bit baffling to the everyday human mind.  But I have to tell you; I am amazed at how great I feel so soon after surgery and I am very thankful to Dr. Bashioum.  His expertise in cosmetic surgery makes all the difference in my recovery process.  All I’ve needed is a bag of ice replaced every couple hours to help reduce the swelling and Tylenol every four hours for pain.

Take a look at the photo of pink balloons that greeted me on my arrival back home.

Big, bigger, best!

Big, bigger, best!



For the next three weeks, it’s crucial that I abide by the after-care instructions, by focusing on what is appropriate and inappropriate to lift, pull or push.  I’ve made a pact with myself to stop and think before doing anything risky and if it’s something I’m a little bit unsure of, to ask for help.

From the moment that I decided to have breast enlargement surgery, to the present day where I’m lying on the couch recovering, I have to say that this has been an amazing experience which has gone particularly well so far.  You might find this hard to believe, but I actually have a favorite part in all of this.  And that is when, just a few short hours after surgery; I delicately unzipped my shirt to see the finished product.  As I look down, I saw two beautifully perky, symmetrical breasts staring right at me.  “Well hello,” I said.  “Welcome back!”

More video blogs of my journey will follow, so stay tuned…
