I had a breast augmentation about a year and a half ago.
I was originally a 32B. After nursing for a total of 4.5 years, and fluctuating between an A and D cup, 3 X's, I was left with nothing but some skin and nipples.
They surprisingly didn't really sag. They were just pretty much non-existent. Still perfectly sensitive though.
My husband never said one negative word about them. He did voice once that it was cool because he got to experience me with many different types of breasts...and now, augmented ones.
He was not very excited for me to do it, but was supportive after MUCH time and effort explaining to him how I felt.
Considering I was very small to start, I was slightly concerned with the potential look and feel after healing was complete. I did tons of research and finally found a doctor that not only created a very natural look, but natural feel too...AND could create cleavage where there was none. He honestly is a miracle worker. Very expensive, but I wouldn't ever considered being cheap when it comes to my one and only body.
Now I wear a 32DD, but look like a nice full C. They fit my body perfectly and balance my shape out well. They are amazing considering what I started with.
What has pleased me the most is how soft and squishy they are. People automatically think of 'bolt-ons' or hard, stiff implants. That's not always the case.
They bounce and move very much like a natural breast. I NEVER imagined that could happen.
My husband was worried through the healing process that they would remain firm, (which they were at the beginning.) With massaging and the proper care, they turned out so, so nice.
I have always been confident in who I am, inside. I have always loved my breasts and the incredible ways they have served me..and my children.
My self-image, however, took a hit with the deflation of that very intimate part. I never felt I had to do it for anyone. I *wanted* to do it just for me. I earned the right to be happy when looking at my reflection.
We all have that right: )
Important to note- I have one patch of skin that lost some sensation after surgery that I will likely never get back. This is something that needs to be considered when choosing a doctor. Even with careful consideration, numbness may occur anyway.
As for nipple sensation, it is 100% normal, thank God! They are my gateway to massive sexual pleasure.
Although I always loved my breasts to be played with, I love it even more now because I am happy with what I am seeing along with the delicious sensations my husband gives me. Zero regrets.
