Julie had always felt duped in the breast department. Her mother had them, her sister had them; but Julie’s were more on the “petite” side. “I believe I got the leftovers,” she says. Julie says she didn’t really consider surgery an option, until after she had finished breast feeding 3 children and her mind was made up.
“I thought if I am ever going to do anything for myself, then I WAS getting new breasts. Once the feeding had stopped, I was more convinced than ever.”
We ask Julie what doctor she had, and whether everything went smoothly along the way. “I had Dr Briggs. I had done a lot of research and from the moment I sat down with Dr Briggs in his office I felt absolutely at ease and knew he was the man for me.

If there is any advice I would give to other mums considering the process, I would tell them to “go for it”. It is the best thing I ever did.”

So how does Julie feel in comparison to before the surgery? “I feel great. I had breasts that reminded me of soggy socks. I always wore push up bras or gel-filled bras etc. and was always uncomfortable having them on display to my husband. I have more confidence in myself now and I am not ashamed.”
Have her friends noticed? “My husband absolutely loves them (LOL); my children realise something is different but don’t really understand. They have referred to me as “big boobies” though – that certainly didn’t happen before!” My mummy friends are rather envious”.
Julie is certainly a wonderful example of someone who had a goal, did her research and came out the other side with some fantastic results. We think Julie looks amazing!
