My pre-op is scheduled for July 12th and surgery on August 3rd. Anyone else having their procedure done around that time? Curious just to find others... =)

Two questions ladies: Was anyone super itchy after surgery? I think it may be from anesthesia but I'm super itchy! Also I had mentioned that I became more swollen and sounds like that is normal but I notice one side is more swollen than the other- not a huge difference but def more swollen.

Bootswifey10, was really itchy. It was from a breast infection. Check out her profile. It could also be your antibiotics. I'd give your PS a call. Breasts are independent of each other and will heal differently. Let us know what your PS says

Hey ladies !!! I know all of us want our boobs to soften after we get them UPGRADED. So I just wanted you gals to know something that works!! My doc told me to buy a bottle of Vitamin E and to take it 2X's daily. I read up on vitamin E and was not so sure about it but after 2weeks stewing over it, I decided to listen to the man!!! It works!! My breasts feel noticeably softer and squishy. They r softer on the outer areas towards my arms and lower areas under and around my nips! Upper pole is softer but not as soft as the rest. Soo just wanna share and I know we r all different but I hope this works fer everyone. ;)

Having my stitches out tomorrow ladies 1 week post op! Geez that went quick??? Can any of you tell me if it hurts??? Surely it couldn't hurt more than getting the drains removed or recovery!!! I had an anchor lift so quite a few stitches too... Anyone else had them removed?

Is it normal to continue to swell after surgery? I noticed that my upper pole seems to be a little more swollen than it was when I first came home

Yes, totally normal. In fact you might find your whole body gets bloated and it will work its way down and out. Your pec muscles were just messed with and it's like getting hit hard in the arm and your arms swells, only worse. It will diminish over time. 4 weeks post op, my right will still swell a bit from over use.

Wow! I was thinking and feeling the same way my mind is back and forth. I even begin to think it would b selfish of me to do. BUT I have taken care of everyone else all my life, I do for those what I can and I don't ask for much. I even talk with my husband and kids about what and why I wanted this done all are in agreement with me but my oldest son. I do feel better about my decision after reading this. Thnks Mrs.500

Hey Tinkabella, Moms do so much ! We sacrifice our selves daily for others ! We give unselfishly to our family with no expectation of anything in return. Years of giving and now it's your turn to get something special that you deserve for yourself and that's okay.

Hi Ladies- well I did it! I was a mess at the docs this morning crying. I was out of surgery around 9:15 and released at 10am. I'm VERY sore can barely move my upper. My PS injected numbing medication directly into each boob and I see a lot of bruising did anyone else have this? Please continue to pray that I don't have any complications and I will be praying for all of you as well. Went with Allergen 410- gummy bears

Congratulations! Eat fresh pineapple or get some bromelain tablets, it helps with bruising. Stay on top of your meds! That way your body focuses on healing instead of the pain. Especially once the numbing medicine in your breasts wear off. Drink lots of water. When I got home, my hubby had to follow me to the bathroom to pull down and pull up my clothes. By 48 hours I was able to do it on my own. I have Sientra gummy bears and I love them! Happy healing and get some rest, and take your meds on schedule! Let us know how you're doing!
