Lyndsey Evans, 26, had always hated having a small bust, but after having a child her chest was flat as a pancake, so she decided to take action...
Take it easy'I sold my house for a boob job'
I knew we didn't have the cash on tap, but drastic times called for drastic measures.
We'd already planned to remortgage the house to raise some extra money for home improvements. What would be the harm in borrowing a bit more for my operation?
I wasn't sure if Andrew was going to like it, but he was fine.
It's a lot of money, £4,000. But if it means that much to you, then just go for it,' he said.
I couldn't believe I was finally going to feel like a real woman and my heart was in my mouth as I went to see the consultant at the Harley Medical Group.
You have two choices,' he said, handing me two types of implants. One was a D cup and the other was a C.
I wasn't sure. One thing was certain, though, I didn't want to end up looking like Jordan. After all, I was only a size eight and just over 5ft.
I'm thinking the smaller ones, what do you think?' I asked the doctor. I agree,' he said. Especially if you want them to look natural.'
My operation was scheduled for two months' time. I couldn't wait, I was so excited I counted the days down and soon it arrived. I remember feeling nervous for the first time as they wheeled me into the operating theatre.
But I needn't have worried because it went like a dream.
When I came round from the anaesthetic I looked down at my chest. I cried when I saw that I had a proper bust for the first time in my life.
The only thing that upset me a bit was that I couldn't hug my daughter Amy properly for a few days after the op.
But apart from that I felt great. A few weeks later I hit the shops and treated myself to a whole new selection of underwear and tops.
And I splashed out on a triangle cut skimpy bikini to replace the stuffed boulder holders I used to have to wear.
My sister, Jessica, 27, got married last month and I couldn't wait to slip into the gorgeous champagne-coloured bridesmaid dress with shoestring straps I'd chosen.
Before the operation, I would have had to wear a strapless bra stuffed full of uncomfortable padding, but thanks to my new boobs I didn't need to.
I know it sounds extreme remortgaging our house to pay for a boob job, but I can honestly say it's been worth every penny.
