I am 4 weeks po, up to today I have healed extremely well no bruising or open wounds and incision looks great and healing very well. This morning I had a small opening on my R side that when I put a bandage on leaked bright red blood but only with pressure, and my L side areola was whiter than ever before with bumps that also look rashy and little bruising on the breast. I went to my PS and he assured me everything was fine..I am just curious if anyone else has had similar experiences. And why just over night did all this change? Also I just noticed on my R side white thick pus (idk what it is actually, I am not messing with it) opening on the incision around the areola it is small but I cant call my ps till monday so if any of yall know what this is and can help me I would appreciate it! TIA

I had my BA yesterday morning and when I got home I was in a lot of pain. However, after taking vicodin I've felt fine and I haven't been in a lot of pain at all. This has been way easier than I thought it was going to be. I'm not even really swollen or anything. Last night I slept on the couch propped up so I think that helped a lot. I think I'm a full C or a 32 D, I'm not sure yet but they look really good and natural! I started out as a 34B and I got 400CC Memory Gel Silicone. I'll keep you girls updated. =)

I had my BA this morning and I am feeling pretty good.. just in a little pain. However I am not happy... My PS went SMALLER then we discussed, he said the 304cc took a weird shape and he knew i would in like it so went with an 286cc and with them being swollen right now they barely lookl ike the C cup I wanted as an end result :( I am hoping that once the swelling goes down and my skin and muscle softens up they will not shrink too much!

Geez, and I can't get mine to go down a couple of sizes. I'm a little upset with that but the opposite around.

Hi Im due to have my BA in may really excited and nervous at the same time. I've been obsessively reading all comments and suggestions on this site. I'm just praying it all goes well.

I'm having mine done on April 25th at 11am! I couldn't be more excited! I've been wanting to get a BA since I was 14 when I realized I was never going to have boobs haha. I'm 21 years old, small 34B, 5'8", 127 pounds. I am doing this to feel less self conscious about my chest and I also do modeling so this will definitely help my career! I am getting 400cc Memory Gel Silicone over the muscle. Debating on if I should get 400cc or go up to 425cc? I want to be a D.

5 days post op, feeling much better. Still Having discomfort at right incision site. I can not wait til these balloons drop :). 500cc sounds like a lot but it wouldn't even be that noticeable if they weren't so high. I know I have to be patient and they are going to be awesome. It's helped me so much reading other reviews and before and after stories/pics. I've seen at least three people's journey that sound and look identical to mine. I wish I could post pics. Anyone know how to post from iPhone?

Also April 30th is my surgery date. I'm not sure how to relax either, always worked two jobs and took care of two boys on my own. So I am quite excited about relaxing. I bought a huge couch pillow, a body pillow, purchased netflicks, made plans for the pets to stay somewhere else for a week, and will start to make some dinners that I can just throw in the microwave. Oh, and bendie straws to make things easier...

Great tips! I made a list of movies/ shows that I've been wanting to watch on Netflix. Remember to set up your comfy area before so when you get home, it'll be ready. Mine is on Tuesday and I wished I knew how to relax before the surgery!!! Keeping as busy as possible cleaning and prepping the house but I still have boobs on my mind. Lol... And my sleeping has been horrible this week.

I'm not sleeping too well right now either, but that's because I had to quit smoking, lol Does anyone else have a super weak stomach? I have a high pain threshold but I get severe anxiety, and pass out. I passed out before each tattoo I have, once they start, I'm fine. I will probably pass out waiting for surgery. Rrrr

I'm right at the end April 30th! I'm doing my shopping next weekend and does anyone have any suggestions for comfort or home items. I'm a stay at home mom so this is the first time someone is actually taking care of me! I'm nervous! So basically my question is: "How do I relax? " lol

Hey guys I had my BA this morning. I'm feeling a lot better now. The first few hrs were kinda bad. I felt more uncomfortable than I felt pain which is a great thing. But after takings my meds and sleeping I feel a lot better. Still resting and taking it easy.

Finally settled after flying to Miami to meet with Dr.Frieman. Pre-Op went great the staff was very attentive and caring. Even went so far as to find me a charger for my phone. BA scheduled for 8:30am tomorrow morning and I can't wait. I will try my best to keep you guys updated.

Hello Ladies! I had my BA on 5th April. I was in the cancellation list, so when i had a call i was ready. Otherwise i was booked for 22 April. I am so glad that it's done. I'm 5' tall & 108 lbs, i was very small A cup, flat as a flat screen telly. i had 255cc silicone implants under the muscle. Didn't want to go big, just a bit bigger. I am happy with the size. Once all settles and swelling is gone they will look perfect.(already look fab) But first 4 days was SO hard, the pain and discomfort was unbearable. Getting out of bed was very hard, i ached all over.I didn't want anybody to make me laugh, because laughing and sneezing and coughing seemed impossible and painful. And then... just like that... i feel good, i feel human again. I know that i have to be careful, and i will take it easy, although it is not easy. I'm not the person who can sit and do nothing. But it's worth it ! There is plenty of time to do stuff. I've read : http://www.realself.com/question/what-aftercare-breast-augmentation and i will obey :) 4 days of hell and then the sun came out again. So, it is worth it. Good luck and take care.
