Long story short, I have wanted to have a BR (or maybe just lift?) for YEARS.  I finally have everything lined up and ready to go for early November.... what will this look like at about 5 weeks post-op?  My significant other will be coming back from Afghanistan and I am wondering how shocking the Frankenboobie effect will be at that point? I know he will love the eventual result and has been completely supportive of me but I have read the numerous posts about warning the significant other.  What will he be coming home to?  I don't want to freak him out unnecessarily but I want to give him a fair warning.  How healed will I be?  What will the scars look like that soon after?  Swelling/bruising?    Thanks for sharing your experience Ladies!
