Samantha’s quality of life was going to change on the 12th of May 2015. The excitement, anxiety and anticipation was intense. Samantha was about to embark on a journey to improve her and well-being and confidence.
Sam believed she was of below average breast size prior to having children, so four babies later, she felt less than average with empty sagging breasts and had always wanted full looking breast. This may sound somewhat vain but how you feel about yourself is not something others should judge or dissect.
Prior to having children, Sam was a hard worker. Sam put her career on hold and devoted her time to her children. She is currently finishing her Bachelor of Nursing Degree and did not want to put her family under financial strain and did not have the money simply sitting around for a breast augmentation.
Sam took the plunge and was approved for a personal loan. Taking on debt was stressful but the benefits were intended to out-way the low repayments. Sam is still paying this loan off. The heartbreaking part is, had the surgery gone well and Sam felt confident, the loan would be no issue. The loan is now a constant reminder of her terrible journey. The brutal life lessons a patient in Australia should not have to learn.
Sam researched for about a month before finding an impressive website of a plastic surgeon, and went to consult for surgery on the 12th of May. Of Sam’s own admission, she was excited and wanted her new breasts yesterday. Sam was eager to look and feel amazing. Impressed with the surgeon and feeling trust for the doctor, Sam booked her surgery. The surgeon was not a FRACS plastic surgeon and was not board certified in any country, despite portraying differently. Sam booked surgery for the 12th of June 2015.
