Mother of 2, breastfeed both 18 months. Want my pre-baby breasts back. Always had full DD breasts and now sad, droopy skin!

It is the calm before the storm kind of day. I was nervous, about 2 weeks ago, but today - READY. I am at peace with my cc sizes and know to trust my Dr. that I will not be too big. I am so thankful that I have a supportive husband, mother and friends. Thanks for all the other posts, been very helpful with details and encouragement.

Ok. Here we are 1 day postop and feeling great. First reaction after sx was feeling the stinging/paper cut type pain where the incisions are. Today, went to post op and checked everything out. Stopped at the store on the way home, spent about 15 minutes walking around and now feeling/looking swollen and tight. Word of advice - keep meds in and don't over do. Icing everything as we speak.

Day 2 post op. Going to take it easy, with not too much walking today. But feeling good, surprisingly not much pain. Haven't had to take a pain pill every 4 hrs. Will see how I feel at 6 hours. Swelling has gone down on top and no real hot feeling anymore. Really loving the shape and look of my girls! So glad I did this. Now time to heal all areas from anchor lift. Can't wait to try on my bikini top!!!!

So far off my pain meds and just took some tylenol. May need one tonight before bed but so far so good. Have a post op scheduled for Wed so will see progress of healing and swelling. Here is a new pic in bikini top, still very swollen.

Ok post op went well. Leaving tape on until Friday. Learned how to "move" implant up and over so no capsular contraction since I am under tissue. Don't want scar tissue to form too tight around implant. Officially off pain meds, just tylenol here and there. Have not taken anything today - day 6 by the way. Still swollen on right side more than left as of now but other than that everything going good for less than a week out. Hardest thing to adjust to is getting used to having a chest again or boobs! The feeling of full, heavy breast on my chest is new too. But as time heals scars, it will also help in getting used to having a chest again. Will post a pic in cami. I think they look fabulous in clothes right now and can't believe I won't have to wear a bra. Been wearing one since 8th grade!!!

Had my one week post op yesterday. Everything healing like it should, tape removed and put back on for one more week. Practiced the "moving" technique - must say that is somewhat uncomfortable, but getting better everyday. Still having some swelling more on right side than left but I know that is a temporary thing. Just want everyone to know how wonderful it feels to be without a bra and have beautiful perky breasts! Only one week out - this is surreal!

I just realized I never put any of my info so ladies could compare. I am 5'5" and 145lbs and went with 475 cc mid profile mentor gel implants.
