Boobies in Africa


Where do I begin. I have been contemplating documenting my journey but have been unsure about it. However there is not a single African story so I thought why not be the first. So here goes...

I have always known I will not be blessed with being busty since my older sister of 7years never had much in the boob department. However I was always hopeful. Puperty came and well, nothing. So I told myself that I would start saving for my boobjob at 13 and by 18 I would have my surgery. Lol, a girl can dream right. Fast forward to 2017 and I'm 25 (on May 25th) and only now am I finally going to go through with the process. A gift to myself for my crown bday.

Why the long wait? I think I was always insecure but never desperate for the procedure. However, having just had my son (he turns a year this month, May 27) and breastfed for 8months, I don't even feel like a woman anymore. I am beyond flat. Im like ----A. And I'm also newly single so I am definitely keen on feeling sexy again. Also I finally have all the money for it, so I'm ready to take the plunge - Hoping to do so mid June, around the 20th is the date I booked, not sure but my consultation is 1st June.

So a bit about my procedure in Africa. I am a black lady, Xhosa tribe from South Africa. Most ordinary people here don't have cosmetic surgery, it's usually celebrities (very few), and more of the upper class, monied people that have the procedure from what I know. I never thought getting boobs was even a reality up until a handful of the white ladies I worked with in modelling and hostessing would show off their new sets. I would admire their 'girls' longingly in the changing rooms and they would subsequently give me the low down on the doctors, prices, what to get etc. That's when the seed was firmly planted. So now it's finally my turn and I'm so excited!!! I have changed phones so I dont have the ladies' numbers anymore to consult with so I am very very grateful for this platform.

Consultation


So I had done my research years ago, I think 2013 and already had an idea of which surgeons I was interested in. However I was in Johannesburg (Major City) then and now I am in the Queenstown (more industria/rural) and I can't travel to Joburg as I just started at a new company, I want to be able to be within close proximity with my PS. So I decided to look for a new PS in Port Elizabeth which is another big city 4 hours away (drive, u can't fly there from where I stay).

After thorough research I found a great PS Dr Hoekstra who has received quite alot of press for his reconstructive work. He also works as a specialist called in at courts, so that was a plus. After booking a date with his receptionist for a consultation (R700) I got a date a month later, May 4th. Unfortunately for me I was running late as it is very far, I called in 2hours ahead to let them know and the receptionist told me that the dr is too busy to allow me the 15min wait and that rescheduling is not possible. Already I was put off by the rudeness because if this is how they are treating a potential client now, how much more when I need to see my P.S. again because of whatever problem that may arise. As bummed as I was, as I was ready to consult, book and pay, I took it as a blessing.

I spent the next couple of hours searching the net and trying to find another PS. I found a couple but this lady PS Dr Ronel Gowar, caught my attention, esp since she specialised in Breast Cancer Health and breast reconstructive surgery, although she does do other cosmetic procedures I just found it so admirable that she specialises in such a worthy cause such as cancer and just women upliftment (if i can call it that) in general. Also her reception lady is absolutely sweet, she made me feel like I've known her for years and was open to answer any questions I had about the PS... I have another PS I have booked a consultation with but my heart just feels right about her. Maybe it has to do with the fact that a woman delivered my son and she was amazing so I think that women have more compassion and understand our anatomy more.

My consultation (R800) is on 1 June and surgery on July 20th. This date now feels just too far, I think I was too scared to ask for off days hence I got such a late date but screw it, I want my surgery in June so Im just gonna make a plan, even if i just take 2 days off including the weekend, so totalling 4 days off... I spoke to the receptionist about this and she said we can definitely do the procedure a week or so later. Maybe I will go for mid June instead, anyway my point is that I am happy at how accomodating they are. A part of me is nervous at the fact that she is not as busy as Dr Hoekstra, but then again he is a hospital plastic surgeon and does everything, he does not necessarily specialise in BA. And I also have to keep in mind that this is South Africa, cosmetic surgery is not as big as everywhere else in the world so I can't expect her to be crazy busy.

Anyway I am super excited as the 1st is approaching, it will mine and my sons bday next week and then boom!! The consultation the following week so I know that time is going to fly by. In the meantime I am constantly checking out my boob folder😊😁😁 it brings me so much joy. I am currently nipples and skin lol (how i miss my bfing boobs) and I am hoping to achieve the size of 280-300cc with moderate plus profile. Natural looking and not too big, I just want to feel sexy naked and in a bikini. I am 1,7m in height, and weigh about 54kg. I haven't measured my bust, ribcage and all that. Hoping I will start my ab exercises after consultation just to firm them up. Winter has just started here so it will be cold here right up until the end of September so I have a lot of time to d&f (that's how I timed it).

Side note: My mom, sis and few friends know, my twin bro doesn't (it would be an awks convo). They are all supportive. My mom is my boss but technically her partner supervises me, so maybe I can do overtime to get my off days. I am new like I said, so I don't want to get special treatment.

Consultation update


So 1st June was my consultation and I must admit that it went really well.

Upon entering I was greeted by the lovely receptionist, the Dr was busy so I had to wait a few min for her to finish with her other clients. It gave me a great opportunity to get to some information from the receptionist, which included the fact that she's going to have her BA done with the PS as well in December. That gave me some confidence that if the receptionist can trust the P.S. with her life then surely I can too.

So I met up with the PS, got to know each other 1st and then I undressed for her to take my measurements and discuss what I want. I told her I want something in the 260- 300cc range of which she said she's really happy to hear that as going above 300 would not necessarily give me the best results for my proportion. She decided that she's going to get 265, 275, 285 and I think a 300cc implant of which she will see which implant is the best option during surgery. She let me know that she uses Natrelle only of which I was hoping it would be Mentor but I dont really mind. So it's Natrelle textured silicone implants that we are going to use, she chose high profile as the mod. profile was going to be too wide for my chest. I was hoping for moderate but I was told that profile size is not a determining factor of it looking natural or not. I can still have a natural look with HP... Incision wise she chose crease, although she does other options as well. I'm was happy about this because from reading and doing research here on JBI that seemed like a good option for me. What kind of bothers me is that I was hoping for unders and she said she prefers going over the muscle as I have enough breast tissue and she doesn't like to dissect the muscle unnecessarily (she explained in depth why). Also with her method there is a very quick recovery period and less pain, but I'm still nervous as I had my heart set on unders. I guess this is part where I have to trust my PS.

I googled some questions that one should ask their PS at the consultation as well as some of my own. She was patient enough to answer everything in detail and asked me to come back next time with even more questions should I have any, mind you I came into it with like 20 questions.

So Dr Gowar doesn't do surgery without having a Pre-Op, so I have to see her again on the 26th and then have my surgery that thursday on the 29th of June...

Im nervous, a bit apprehensive, but I guess it's because I never thought this could actually be a reality. I can't believe I'm gonna have boobies by this month end💚💚💚

Update


So I'm actually stressed at writing this as I'm supposed to be getting my surgery next week, however this may no longer be the case.

So as I have stated previously, I wanted to get silicone unders MF, but my PS suggested textured overs HP. Initially I didn't mind her suggestions as I trusted her, she studied this. But after revising the information I had already gone through (here on JBI as well as other resources), I just feel so uneasy about going through with surgery with her and I'm not trying to save for a revision so early.

However I decided since I have done my research and still agree with what I want, let me find more information on her to gain my confidence. This is because my date is so near so I really didn't want to go through the process of waiting for consults etc, I am literally so close to having awesome boobies!!! Anyway it turns out she has only been in private practice for 2 years (this made me uneasy but wasn't a major deal breaker). So I called the receptionist asking whether my PS would be open to using smooth implants or can she consider unders instead. She took a couple of hours to get back to me but said that the PS strictly uses textured and prefers overs - this is odd to me. So I have decided to postpone my date whilst I consult with someone else.

I have reverted back to Dr Hoekstra and the rude receptionist lol, but she was nice today. My consult is on 29th June. I read up on the Ps surgeon and reminded myself why I initially went for him and I'm happy about that and am hopeful it works out. I called the receptionist and she assured me that the Dr uses a variety of types of implants of which I am delighted to hear.

So ya, now we wait!! Tired of this cash burning my account, wanna pay and just have boobies already. It's winter so it's the ultimate time to recover for summer😁😁😁

All paid up and uber excited


So yesterday was my consultation with Dr Hoekstra and it was amazing.

Firstly He greeted me so warmly that I immediately felt at ease and as though I had known him for years. When we got to his office we chatted a bit about why I want the procedure, how many kids I have, do I want more, my medical history etc. Then straight to the examination room for him to have a look.

In the examination room he examined my breasts, tried on the silicone implant over the breasts to see which size will be a right fit, I told him I want over 260cc but under 300cc, of which he said not to worry about the technical stuff and numbers but rather what will look good and natural with my proportion. Dr Hoekstra then gave me a bra to put on and some sizers for a visual representation. I won't lie, I was very happy with what he chose for me, it made me even more excited about my procedure. My sizers landed up being 275cc by coincidence, but he seemed unsure that it will fit the way he wants so we might go 260 but im hoping for the 275cc *fingers crossed*. We are doing under the muscle (yaaay), smooth silicone (yaaay) so I'm really really happy.

Other details discusssed was that I will wear a sports bra but even if I go braless that's cool so long as I don't wear an underwire bra for 3 months, no exercising for 6 weeks, I can play with my son and pick him up but with caution. He also showed me that my one nipple is slightly more to the left than the other (which is barely noticeable now), but might be noticeable with larger breasts. I appreciated him noting this to me prior to the procedure... All in all, Dr Hoekstra was very relaxed about the whole procedure and assured me not to worry as he has been doing this for 15years with very few complications. He says he doesn't provide insurance but for revisions (which he highly doubts will be necessary), he will charge me less. Also he noted that if there is a need for me to be in the hospital for longer the hospital and Anaesthesiologist will bill me a little more for the added time in theatre. Thereafter I got my quote and was off to the receptionist to pay.

So this quote was R7000 more expensive than my previous quote from Dr Gowar, however I am so happy with my PS and that I'm getting what I want and by someone with such vast experience that I really think it's worth it. I paid cash immediately after my consultation as I have been wanting this so I had the money ready, but usually part payment is due 2 weeks before and the rest the day before. My date is 20th July, at 06:00 I must be at the hospital.

Im so elated, so happy. My dreams are coming true. It all just feels right!!! I'm one lucky lucky girl

I finally did it


At exactly 09:10 yesterday morning, I handed in my resignation from the itty bitty titty committee. Now let me tell you how it all started.

So I got to my sisters place at about past midnight the morning of my op as I had been coming from Queenstown. My son had been admitted to hospital the day before so I couldn't leave till I knew that he would be alright. Dr told me he would be discharged the following morning (morning of my op) so I was able to leave. Anyway I got to my sisters place and prepared what I would wear to the hospital and the sports bras I'd take along.

I definitely didn't sleep that "night", kept on waking up every hour as I was so afraid of missing my appointment. Eventually I woke up at 04:50 and decided its time to shower and get ready for my procedure. Then it was my sisters turn to and by 05:30 we were on our way to the hospital. Got there just before 6am and well basically just filled out some last admin, went to my ward just before 7am and answered a few health questions, peed in a cup and changed. At about 07:30 my Anesthesiologist came through to talk to me about the process, he offered me something for the nerves but I declined as I felt okay and not too anxious. At 07:45 my PS came thorough to mark me and check that I'm all ready.

08:30 I headed to the theatre room and waited whilst they prepped. I went to theatre at 09:10 and the nurses checked my blood pressure and gave me a drip as well as oxygen under the direction of my Anesthesiologist. I had been told prior that I was going to be put under general anesthesia. So whilst being put under I asked the nurses to remind my PS to please try for the 275cc as he had said it could either be 250 or 275cc. At that point my PS hadn't entered the theatre yet, and whether in fact he did or not I will never know😄 because I was out in a matter of seconds.

Woke up at past 11 in the worst possible pain. I was almost in tears demanding some meds. Luckily they got me some morphine and some meds in no time. That felt super amazing as the pain was gone instantly. Then it was a matter of drinking water, peeing, eating and then I was discharged... I have to add though that I felt super dizzy afterwards and needed assistance walking to the loo. I felt rather loopy for most of the day and had to take it easy. My throat was super dry and in pain so I could only have soft foods like mash, yoghurt, soup, soft veggies etc. They gave me chicken fillet to go with my meal but swallowing was so difficult so I just gave up.

Eventually we went home and I took some painkillers and slept. At about 8pm my sis asked that we go out for dinner, I was hesitant to but caved in. Glad I did as it was fun but the laughter had me in pain. What I learnt from going out was that laughter is not always the best medicine lol, that closing a door from inside the car requires alot of pec muscles so I couldn't do that. Couldn't hold my handbag etc so luckily I had my sister to do all those menial tasks for me. I had tea ofcourse as I don't plan to drink anytime soon. Well I'll give it 2 weeks.

So ya that was my day, got my sister to open the bed for me as I couldn't do that either, pulling of my boots was also a pain. But eventually I slept and I slept very well (took some time to fall asleep upright though).

So day, post op day 2. I had the morning boob which was painful, but after some yoghurt and pills I felt better. Now my only issue is that my throat feels phlegmy from them putting that tube in my throat whilst I was under. Its better than the sore throat I had last yesterday but just annoying.

All in all im so happy about this process and so so excited for this journey. I can't believe I did it, I can't believe my time has come. I feel complete, I feel like I'm more of me❤💙💚💜💛

Day 3 and 4


So day 3 I stopped taking painkillers as i wasn't in that much pain anymore. Just slight discomfort because I was still swollen around my breasts and ribs, however it wasn't really painful because I still feel numb around the area.
A pain I did feel, is a shooting pain that felt like I was being stabbed on my left boob. Also when I pressed around that area it hurt as well. So that was a concern for me, I was worried that I was being overly active as I was visiting friends and going out.

I spoke to some fellow recovery ladies and was assured that it's normal and its just the nerves reattaching. That made me feel better because I would have hated to have botched my boobs so early on... Aside from that they seemed to have dropped some more and no longer scare me in size, I think I made the right choice as they no longer seem as big.

Day 4.

I woke up feeling awesome and no longer had that sharp burning pain on my left boob, however I felt a similar light sensation on my right boob. So at least that made me feel better and confirmed that it is indeed just the nerve endings... The swelling also seems to have gone down considerably, boobs are dropping too (although they weren't high to begin with). I felt the implants move this morning for the 1st time which I was excited about because it means the muscles are relaxing - it wasn't like a drastic or dramatic move, but like it was no longer that hard and I could feel sensations.

So that's all I have to update now, I think my next update will be on day 10. I will put up pics soon... Im so happy and so grateful for this opportunity, I love my boobs so much already

Sorry for the late post but life has been hectic... So today is day 12 and I must say that I feel amazing, however let's thread back a bit.

Day 5 -7
I still felt tight and discomfort, it was no longer as painful but on some days I would feel a surge of pain come out of nowhere. Especially in the mornings, I definitely had both morning and evening boob and I suspect in the evening it came from being tired from work. I could also still feel the upper heaviness from the new sets which I think came from my boobs still being high and tight...

Day 8 (from my boob diary)
Im happier everyday
Still in pain though, righty is the problem child these days. I'm always feeling super tight and sore on that side. Both are still swollen and numb but more on the right than the left.
I've stopped wearing the sportsbra as it was too tight and was squishing the girls and put me in too much pain, although it was a medium. So now I wear a camisole with support which is muuuch better... My boobs just feel so heavy, can't wait for them to get all natural and soft.

Day 10
This was definitely a turn around day in terms of pain, discomfort and tightness. Like I officially started to feel like myself and it also stopped feeling as though my breasts have just been done. This day was my 1st step towards my boobs feeling like an extension of me and I was happy to be going back to the old me without constantly being conscious and worried about my breast.

Day 12

The old me is back, I'm feeling great and the boobs are dropping nicely, Im not sure about the fluffing yet as they're still not soft yet.

Tape
I was supposed to have a post op appointment with my PS a week later but because I stay far we opted for a 4 week post op appointment. However I am now left with the duty of removing my own tape as stitches are dissolvable, I'm afraid to remove them myself so I think I shall wait it out.

Wow, it's true what they say - after the pain subsides time really does fly. I can't believe I'm 6 weeks already!!!

So to be honest right now I am super happy with my results but it has not always been this way. Its really an emotional rollercoaster this journey. Some days I would be ecstatic about my boobs and the next week be so bummed that I didn't go any bigger. I would love them naked but felt like they would disappear in some bralettes or clothings, the worst part is that comparing post op and pre op pics didnt even help at times. However this forum has been a blessing as similar stories would help reassure me as well as making me patient.

Patience as really been a virtue because this week I'm much happier. My boobs are softer, have more jiggle and are fuller. The only thing bugging me is that righty has not yet caught up to leftie, she's softer but still higher up and not natural looking as leftie. Also noone has noticed that I had something done unless I mention it, even naked it doesn't throw them off so I guess they look natural enough (I was barely ever in undies infront of anyone before)... So yes, confidence wise it has been great; I feel more like myself than I ever have.

Tape: Taking the tape off was quite effortless and painless. I did it at 4 weeks PO only to discover another little tape underneath. I kept that one on for one more day and removed it in the shower. Scars are barely visible, I'm happy with them. I'm just putting on normal cocoa lotion on to moisturize, nothing else.

Sleep: I still sleep on my back, sometimes turning slightly to my left side has it as d&f and is not uncomfortable when I do so. When I do go onto my side I make sure my sports bra is on. I have been getting slight morning boob on righty but I am not really concerned about that, I figure its it healing.

Bras: I still don't wear wired bras as I am only cleared to do so at 12 weeks so I wear bralettes, go braless or wear my sportsbra but I like to go mostly braless or wear bralettes... I haven't gotten measured yet as I'm not in a rush to go bra shopping as yet. I think I will go at 8 weeks and then again at 12 weeks, but not seriously going to go bra shopping till 12 week mark when I'm more certain about my size.

Week 9


This is a post I had written way back in week 9 that I hadn't posted.

How quickly time flies, we're already at 9weeks post op... I'm still happy with the girls but still think I went too small on some days. However I know it's just boobgreed coz these suit me well.

Anyway I don't wear bra' s these days, got over it so the girls are usually free. I started sleeping on my side's at 7-8 weeks which was so uncomfortable and slightly painful. But now at 9 weeks the pain is not so bad... I still get slight pain on righty as she's still behind lefty who I feel is perfectly healed. Like picking up my one year old on my right makes it painful after a while so I try and hold him on my chest with both hands after a while.

Boobies are a lot softer but I can't wait for them to get nice and squishy.

4.5months PO


Hi all

My apologies for not having written for so long. Thing is time reply does flu after 6 weeks so there was really not much to update you on.

However month 3 to 4 there has been significant changes. Firstly my boobs are so soft and squishy, I can bring them together with no pain, they feel so natural! However when I bend over I can feel the heaviness of the implant.

I have also been feeling aloooot of zingers around my breast and nipple. It is so painful at times but it bearable, apparently its the nerves reconnecting so I don't really mind it. Any sign of healing is a good one. Another sensation I've been experiencing is that of itching, but I try not to scratch but to rather put lotion on so that has been helping.

Scars - my scars are very light and barely visible. They are now both under the crease which I love... I'm single so noone that I have met has been able to guess or even suspect that they are not mine.

Numbness - I have slight numbness under my boobs (Like lower pole) and nipple but as I mentioned earlier that alot of the sensation has been returning. I do have feeling in parts of my breast, it's like 70% I would say.

Bra size - from 32AA I went to 32D with my 275cc. I mostly wear bralettes but I'm interested in bras now as I miss having the girls up high. I'm ready to dress them up so I'm excited to play around with different bras and clothes. 32D can look small in a bralettes so I'm in need of some va va voomm

Bathing -Still haven't bathed, but I have swam. So I'm still using the shower day out of habit.

Sleeping - I sleep on my sides which was uncomfortable still at 3months but now I feel comfortable. I can roll over to lay on my stomach at some points but I prefer sides so as to keep the girls safe...

6 months mark!!!

Yaaaay its finally 6 months and I couldn't be happier. I thank the Lord everyday for my new girls. They are soft, they feel like they have completely set. They feel like they are completely mine, like I was born with them (went through puberty for them lol).

Im just ecstatic that things are going well. Its summer in SA so time to wear a bikini and show them off.

Proper update: They are much softer, they feel completely natural. I can still feel the implant/ripples on righty but she is getting there slowly. The ripples on the side have disappeared, even now I only feel it slightly by the crease. Lefty is perfect.
My boobs are nice and full, I get zingers sometimes but very slightly, can hardly feel it. On my period though they get very sensitive and sore, and feel bigger etc. Something I'm not used to because I never had boobs to do anything with that time of the month...

So I didn't get to go to my checkup because I've been busy, but my PS said I can just call in a week before and come through. I would have gone next week but I Cape Town is calling my name.

To the ladies whom are considering getting this procedure done, I don't know if it is right for you but it has definitely given me the confidence and freedom to be the real me

7 to 8 months


I have been wanting to write for quite some time now but have been so busy.

7months

So at 7 months the craziest thing happened, my breasts started feeling the most insane sensations. I would describe it as a tingling and burning of sorts all over my areola and nipples. Luckily I had read about this on the forum so I wasn't shocked nor concerned as many said it's what happens when the nerves are reconnecting in the nipple. I hadn't expected this to happen so soon as some of the ladies here have waited up to a year if not longer for the nipple and lower pole numbness to subside. So naturally I was very excited although it was more uncomfortable than painful... I have feeling back in my nipples now but I wouldn't say it's 100% but I feel like it's getting there.

8th Month

On this one particular day I woke up so alarmed as I was convinced that I had popped my implant or that it had ruptured. I felt and felt for ages wondering when this could have happened and how, feeling one breast and then comparing it to the next. As I was panicking and looking through my calender as to when can I make an speedy appointment with my PS it hit me, could this be the final drop? I couldn't understand why I could no longer feel my implant; why I could no longer feel the edges and why they felt so natural all of a sudden, well too natural actually. My horror turned into joy, I was so happy because I honestly didnt expect my results to get any better than they were and now Im at a loss for words. I feel complete! I know they might change more as we get to the one year mark in July, but im so sooo satisfied.

The other thing is that my boobs feel slightly bigger, as my bralettes ride up where it's supposed to sit beneath my crease. Also my underwire bra's also feel a bit tight. Im currently a 32D (supposed to be size 30 but thats difficult to find in SA), and don't want to be shopping for bigger bra sizes as even finding a D is a nightmare, I always land up going for a 34C or 34D instead.

Anyway I'm happy to be ranting about bigger boobs than my old A cups lol. This is the me I was always meant to be. It was so exhilirating to wear a bikini and be confident at the beach, my heart was so full.
