It wasn't easy to make the decision. People called me crazy.

"Huh, you not scared meh?"
"What if the doctor screws up? Y'know I heard someone whose nipple turned out slanted, another girl's boobs burst ....." 
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.

Years on, her video is still etched in my memory and people continued to make jokes about how flat I was. I chose to pretend like it didn't hurt me and laughed along. After all, I could only accept my fate, right?

As I grew up, more ladies around me chose to determine their fate and I started to hear more stories of ladies going for surgeries to enhance their bodies. 
Some turned out well, some turned out bad. But these statistics never stopped anyone anyway. It was worth a shot.

So I started googling and researching about breast augmentation. That's when I chanced upon MH Plastic Surgery. I was inclined towards this clinic because I've heard of Dr Martin Huang's good name and his many successful cases. His website had clear, detailed explanations of the procedure as well, which made me feel a greater sense of relief. 

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.
