Post by sazzle1710 on 19th April 2010, 12:50 pm

I got granted for the funding of my breast augmentation through my Primary Care trust (Lincolnshire) last year due to having 34AAA breasts that never developed during puberty from a stomach/pancreas tumour which made me lose alot of weight.

As a teenager, they tried Hormone Replacement therapy at the age of 18 to try and encourage my breasts to grow, however, after a year of treatment, my breasts did not alter in any way, so BA surgery was the only option.

I fell pregnant last year, so they held it off until this year.

I went for my consulation in January and met the surgeon. He discussed the options with me and looked at my breasts and agreed that I was very flat. He also discussed what size I will be getting (you dont get to choose) and said that a 320cc silicone implant would be the size for me, making be a large B cup/small C cup.

I was then put on the waiting list and here I am waiting for my procedure tomorrow in Hull.

I am a little nervous, hospitals and anaethetics dont bother me one bit as obviously I've had a few operations when I was younger. I worry more about complications such as them getting infected. I also have a 7 month old baby, but have made arrangements for her to be looked after for a few days. Iv also cooked and freezed all the meals we'll be eating this week, so I think im ready!

I'll keep you all posted on the results, and good luck to anyone who is trying to get Breast implants on the NHS, it is very difficult ( I actually got refused funding 1st time 4 years ago, even with my extensive medical background), but keep trying and appealing and your voice will be heard.

Being flat chested to me, is not something I want to live with anymore, people dont realise how much it affects us girls with very little breasts mentally, even my partner cant understand how badly its affected my self esteem, but now im getting the figure that I think I deserve.

Having my BA tomorrow on NHS 923101 Well its 2 days since my surgery and Im very very sore!!!!

Surgery went very well, the anaesthetic and morphine made me feel abit queasy for a couple of days and I was actually sick yesterday when I got home, but alls good. Im also on strong antibiotics to prevent any infections.

When I first saw my breasts, I was rather upset, I thought they looked very odd, really wide but dont stick out that much?
This was from a 320cc silicone implant, completely under the muscle on my 34AAA breasts. This was only about 6 hours after surgery and they are very swollen and point outwards towards the armpits (So they look quite far apart in the clevage area!)

But i understand that when they soften, they will look alot better and I should be able to finally get a clevage with a good bra on.

The pain is quite bad, but under the muscle was my only option as I had hardly any breast tissue at all, and you'll be suprised how much you do actually use your chest muscles in everyday tasks., (going to the toilet is hard work!!)
I was stuck in bed last nite needing a wee, and after 20 mins of struggling to get up, I burst into tears as I really couldnt move, without feeling pain then my partner helped me up and I dosed up on painkillers again as sleeping is when I seem to get the worse pain in my back from funny sleeping positions..

I am feeling very positive tho, Im not going to lay in bed all day feeling sorry for myself, I wanted this for such a long time, in fact nearly half of my life, and I still cant believe I've finally got my BOOBIES after being let down before in the past, been dumped by boyfriends, and been pyschologically scarred from my secret of being flat chested. I always used chicken fillets and only my mum and current partner knew about my problem.

Measured myself for the first time in my life, and it looks like I've got 36B maybe a small C in some bras.. Im very pleased.

All you girls out there who suffered the same as me, you are not alone, and I think people should become more aware about what its like to feel disfigured/not feminine, its not just about vanity and I do think its a shame that the process of getting implants on the NHS is so difficult and sometimes heartbreaking.xx

Having my BA tomorrow on NHS 828394 lovely, sounds like you're very pleased, good for you hun!

Glad everything went well, the days do get easier hun, I had overs but was pretty poorly (due to meds and GA) post op and it was a very emotional time. You do get used to doing the infamous "bum shuffle" too, so hang in there.

Lots of rest and happy healing!

Hi Sarah!

That's so awesome you've finally got your boobies!! Here's to the rest of your life...

I'm a 34A and would like to be a C/D. I haven't been able to pay for BA myself so went to my GP this year and am now on the wait list for the psychology assessment. Any advice you have will be much appreciated? No one has ever seen me naked up top, its ruined my past relationships and I don't want it to end my new one!!! BA surgery is all for me but I also do want to be seen as curve and feminine.

Anyways, so happy for you!! Xx

Having my BA tomorrow on NHS Empty I had BA on nhs

Post by cleo on 18th June 2010, 4:01 pm

I too had my BA on the NHS since having an eating disorder throughout my early 20's i never developed any breasts, being small then a double A cup :( It wasnt easy, it took me 5 years to get given the go ahead, not to mention being sent for psycotherapy sessions.

Ive heared a lot of negative critisism on internet forums regarding girls/women who get this surgery on the NHS and it really angers and upsets me. Half of these critics dont understand how utterly soul-destroying it can be not to have developed any breasts for a young woman. You feel robbed of your feminity, intimate relationships can be difficult, you feel inadequte to others and feel almost a hatred of those who have developed.

what they also dont know is severe lack of breast tissue is a medical condition called Hypoplasmia.
