*********PREOP LIST OF STUFF TO BUY**************
-Surgical bra can chafe your skin pretty bad. So either tuck a sock under the strap or use baby diaper rash cream. The one I got was : Boudreaux's All Natural Butt Paste Diaper Rash Ointment, WALMART sells it. Or Amazon. No Smell and it rubs in clear and easily :-)
-Pre and Post Op Vitamins. Here are the ones I chose : [ SinEcch (Arnica Montana) Post Surgery Therapy]
-[MakeMeHeal has a pre packaged one that is pretty good so far. Make Me Heal Plastic Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins Kit (Pre & Post-Op Formulas)] -I also just ordered from Amazon Arnica Montana & Bromelain. ( I tend to be over-cautious) lol
-Silicone sheets in a specific size to apply to the nipple to help fade the scar . Kind of expensive. But I have heard rave reviews.
OTHER STUFF :-)
-Annette Seamless Breast Surgery Bra (w/ SeaKelp Micronutrients)_
-I bought some fancy surgical bra that hopefully I can wear in a few weeks. I tried it on SSSHHHHHH and it was so comfy !!!!!
- for surgery day wear something easy to zip on and pull up. I wore my Juicy Couture track suit and it worked just fine. :) -make sure you have gas in the car and directions the night before surgery. No stress!!! -procedure is about 45 mins-1 hour plus 1-2 hours recovery. So make sure the person who drives you brings something to keep them busy
-I bought soups , cases of water , coconut water, perfect food bars , fruit, and Naked juices in bulk at Costco, it really saved me when I didn't feel like bugging my boyfriend to go get me food. Lol
- Buy baby wipes when you want to feel clean and you aren't allowed to shower yet. It really helps. I suggest using the natural care kind :)
Good luck on your surgery. Feel free to add anything I missed. I tried to make a compilation of everything I could think of.
