My Royal Couple
On April 29th while everyone else ooh’ed and ahh’ed at the beautiful royal couple on their wedding day I was focused on my own ‘Royal Pair’.
Yes, I boosted my A cup to a C cup after 11 years of contemplating it! I have saved a few times over the years and always backed out choosing to go on holiday, buy a new settee or put the cash towards my new home.
I have always dreamt of being able to fill even a small bra but to be honest never felt so unhappy that I actually went through with surgery. Why would I when I was in a wonderful relationship, happy with my life and I could put my chicken fillets in my bra and pad out my tops! Like so many women I became a master at this, so much so that only the people I have told about my ‘new royal couple’ have noticed, to everyone else I look the same! Surgery seemed a bit drastic and even after seeing so many of my friends opt for breast augmentation and love the results it just wasn’t for me.
The turning point came when I had my little boy and was lucky enough to experience breast feeding. I will definitely try breastfeeding again if I have another baby but I did notice my tiny boobs disappear once I stopped to return to work. I could no longer disguise my small chest as it had completely vanished. I had no cleavage and my clothes were hanging off my shoulders, that’s when I realised what it is like to REALLY want surgery.
It was no surprise to my mum or husband when I started discussing it with them as we had had these ‘boob job’ chats loads of times, my sister even laughed and said, “Here we go again!” But this time was different. I knew what I wanted. I had researched loads of surgeons based up and down the country and for me Mr Chandrashekar at Spire Liverpool Hospital was the man.
He specialises in and only performs breast surgery. He works with cancer survivors rebuilding their breasts after recovery from a mastectomy in Liverpool and the man is a genius! After a consultation with him I was ready to have the operation as soon as he was.
