It wasn't easy to make the decision. People called me crazy.
To say I didn't have fear in my heart or nerves in my veins would be lying.
However, ever since I was a teen, I've always thought about doing breast augmentation aka boob jobs.
Watching Bong Qiu Qiu's boob job video further inspired me. She spoke honestly, about how she felt being flat, how it affected her confidence, how we just didn't look as good in clothes, how she hated going to the beach and I cried. Because I knew that deep down, I felt the same.
Some turned out well, some turned out bad. But these statistics never stopped anyone anyway. It was worth a shot.
To be honest, I sat on it for a week but eventually decided to set up a doctor's consultation with MH Plastic Surgery. *fingers crossed*
The clinic was minimalistic and very clean, located on the top floor of Paragon Medical. I was greeted by friendly staff and nurses who brought me in to meet Doctor. He spent more than an hour, understanding my needs and concerns as well as debunked popular myths about breast augmentation. Doctor also explained why he chose to use the product he uses in his clinic over other types of implants, his choice of the procedure and so on. These went a long way to make me feel more assured and safe in his hands.
Eventually, we got to the part where I got to try on different sized implants to pick how I wanted the results to look! I kinda felt like a Barbie doll, but also a dream come true.
After the session, the doctor told me to go back and consider if I really wanted to continue with the procedure. At no point of the consultation was he pushy or unprofessional.
I took less than a week to decide and my answer was, YES, I want this for me and my body. So I got a date and waited for the day to arrive.
Stay tuned as I share more about the surgery and recovery process in my next post.
