32 and noticed my boobs hadn't changed since my twenties. I can't wait to feel confident in my clothing!
Why did you want the procedure?
I had been thinking of having a breast enlargement for a number of years but was more serious in having the procedure in the last few months. I did not hate my breasts but always wished they were fuller and bigger without the use of a push up bra. At the age of 32 I had noticed they had changed since my twenties so thought I would enquire about a BA (breast augmentation) and the first steps.
How were your consultations with Glow by MYA?
My initial consultation was with Jill (my patient coordinator) who talked me through the procedure. We spoke about why I wanted a BA, what my expectation were, how they do the surgery, implants and sizing, what type of look I was after, the surgeons, where they perform the procedure and also price. I felt that she had all the time in the world for me and nothing was rushed and no sale push. With her being a nurse I felt as though she has so much knowledge on the procedure and any complications.
As this was a big decision I wanted to think a little about it (although I knew deep down I was going to go for it). Jill never pressured me to book the procedure so the whole journey was very relaxed. I then booked to see my surgeon who was fantastic! The consultation could not have gone any better and he reassured me that my expectations met his. We decided on 450cc implants under the muscle so I was happy to proceed.

How was the day of your procedure?
On the day of my procedure I was a little nervous but mostly excited. I arrived for surgery and before I knew it I was getting sorted for surgery. No hanging about at all and I think I have waited longer for a bus!! Out of surgery I was a bit uncomfortable and it felt very heavy on my chest (which was to be expected) but after some checks, breakfast and a few hours I was on my way home.
How was your recovery?
Recovery wise I needed a good week off from work and housework. I did find it difficult getting in and out of bed and had to have someone to help me as I could not lift push or pull anything even though I was taking pain relief. By day 3 I was walking about and feeling much better but still could not lift so I was being extremely careful. I had my strapping off on day 8, which was so tight on me so having it off gave me a lot of relief. This was also the fist time I saw them… the big reveal and big they were!!! They were mainly so big to do with swelling but still a bit of a shock going from empty breasts to full ones. Jill was then there at the end of the phone over the next few weeks to speak to if I had any questions or concerns and she stayed in contact with me. From then I have been healing nicely and now pretty much back to my normal routine. I’m having my 6 week check next week from then I will be able to go bra shopping!!
Are you happy with your results?
Overall I am extremely happy with new found confidence and with the service from Glow by MYA and would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of having a cosmetic surgery procedure!
