Read my previous Boob Job Journey One-Week Post-Op.
Today is my 5-month post-op! I am so excited. These past couple of months have been a roller coaster and a love-hate relationship with my boobs.
At first, I hated my breast augmentation.
I thought they were too big – I’m pretty conservative in my opinion, or at least I like to think I’m conservative, haha. I remember thinking, “omg, these are too big, no one will take me seriously”. WRONG. No one cares about your boobs unless you’re flashing them onto others. lol.
Some updates: I can pretty much do anything and everything. I volunteer every week at a skateboarding organization, and the first week back after winter break, I was probably 2-week post-op. I couldn’t really skate. The second week I volunteered, I could skate fine but I was hesitant to do a lot of stuff since I was scared of falling haha.
Three Month Post-Op
I’m not sure if morning boobs are a thing, but every morning when I wake up, they felt so sore. Maybe it’s because I sleep on my sides now instead of on my back. There’s still some numbness on the bottom of both of my breasts and my nipples are super sensitive. So sensitive that when I’m wearing a seatbelt and the belt is over my nipple, it feels uncomfortable.
Five Month Post-Op
They are so perfect! I literally don’t know what else to say about them. No more pain; however, there’s still some numbness from the bottom of my nipple to the incision. Other than that, I work out pretty regularly. I try not to work out my chest as much, although it kind of sucks since doing push-ups was my favorite exercise, haha.
I would say this was one of my favorite investments in myself. At first, I was really hesitant. I thought to myself, am I making the right decision? What if my car breaks down tomorrow and I need money for a new car? What if x, y, and z happen?
There were countless scenarios that I came up with. I think one of my biggest fear was not being able to work out regularly, which I decided to hire a trainer to assist me with that. Now, everything is running smoothly!
Before and After Photos
I have gotten a couple of requests from my readers asking me why I don’t post before or after photos, and to be honest, I was really hesitant. I created my boob job series on my blog because I wanted to share my journey with others who are curious about the process. During my research, I have pretty much watched every single YouTube video and joined so many breast augmentation support groups on Facebook.
I’m still shy and nervous about showing my breast. Maybe in a year, I will show my actual progress photos that were taken at the doctor’s office, but in the meantime, this will have to do for now!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if anyone has any questions – would love to do a FAQ on this.
