Has anyone had a breast uplift/boobjob??

Hello there,
I was wondering if anyone had had their breasts uplifted and/or a boob job?
I have just had my third baby, I have quite big boobs but they don't look that big as I'm 5ft10 however 3 kids has taken its toll on them.
They are just empty..I know its early days and my skin still has to go back yada yada but I always said that if my boobs went shite I would get them fixed.
So has anyone had it done and how was it?was it unimaginably sore or do you regret it?
I'm just looking for some advice at the moment. My friend is a plastic surgeon so he has recommended a really good surgeon should I decide to go ahead with it.
I know no one really sees them but it is affecting my self esteem. I feel like I have a pair of saggy swingers.
There will be no more kids as dp going for the snip so no chance of them being huuuge again.

I had one after I had dd.

Never regretted it for a second. I was I. Spin when I first woke up, had some painkillers and was fine from then on.

my surgeon refused to do it until I was at a weight I was happy with and likely to stay at so that he could make sure they for my frame. So i waited a little longer that i wanted, but it was worth the wait. That was almost 8 years ago

I also say to people though that you must remember it will only change your boobs. I was unhappy with my boobs and they made my back sore. That's why i did it. If you have low self esteem (not saying you have) it doesn't magically give you it, iyswim.

I haven't explained that well.

What I mean is, if the issue is your boobs. The Op will fix that. If the self esteem issue is a deep seated way you feel in general. New boobs won't help. Some people feel bad about themselves, in general, and fixate on something 'if .....was better I would be happy'. But sometimes it I.

I was not unhappy in general, just didn't like my boobs.

I have had another dc since and they are a bit rubbish, but exercise is helping them become firmer, smaller and perkier.

I had a reduction. I was 21, many years before DS.
Utterly wonderful, changed my life. They are still pretty good now even after pregnancy and weight gain.

It was a bit sore, and I had to have about a month off work, but that's nothing to the joy it brought me.
My boobs make me grin

Hormones such as mirena coil can help fill out the breasts also.

Thank you all. I knew what you meant.. I don't have low self esteem. I generally like my figure(we all have wee bits we don't like obviously) but I think I look good. It is only the boobies that I think let me down. And it's a "me" thing. I like having nice boobs and now they're not so nice so I want to fix them. grin

It meant I could go from a size 16 top to a 10. I was only a 34d but saggy and had to do the lifting in manouver to get in the bra properly. I am now a 34c and so glad I did it. I had a week off work and a month off the gym.

I am an older mum, so no more kiddies on the way for me, who is interested in a breast uplift.
What is the general opinion, is it worth It?
