5 weeks post op - Atlanta, GA

Wanted to post a quick summary of my experience. I have done way more research after this procedure than before because of my curiosity of others experiences.

Two weeks following my initial consultation the insurance company approved my reduction and was scheduled for April, 25th. I never had to go to PT or "prove" my back pain which was nice not to have to jump through hoops.

I pretty much left the size up to my surgeon, sine I feel its more about proportion than being a specific size. She left me with some good boobage, Im surprised to find out that they are actually measuring a D cup. She said at my one week post op that I can expect for them to stay relatively as they are with the exception of dropping and softening a little.

This was such a pleasant experience for me....I was at the hospital for only 5 1/2 hours, no drains just some tape gauze pads and a surgical bra. Went home had lunch, napped and then took my dogs out on a walk! The next night I was out for dinner with friends! I only took pain pills the day of the surgery and the day after and that was mostly "preventative". Showered after 24 hours, no bruising, no blood....had my first post op a week later and was stunned when they took the tape off. Skin was all closed up and just a pink ring around the nipple. I was not expecting them to look this great in such a little time. I have full sensation ( my biggest worry) and they are starting to soften and round out. I think they are a little fake boob looking but I am very happy and just hoping that they drop and look a little more natural.

Wearing supportive sport bras from the office now and am re-taped, both of which will continue for the next couple weeks.

Completely amazed at how smooth this has been... my biggest grips were not being able to sleep on my side for a week and also I had a few itchy incision days. Cant really complain with that :)

It goes without saying that the back relief and new shopping are the highlights!

Had to re tape my chest today. First time I have felt down. The flesh colored tape kind of disguised all my incisions for the past two week so today was a reality slap! Wondering if any of your guys that are a few months/years post op had a lot of change in size/shape/swelling after the first few 2 weeks or if at this stage what you see is pretty much what you are going to get?

5 weeks post op......everything is going great! no more tape... went for my first run today and it was heaven! Aside from the extreme heat :) My skin near the incisions seems to be extra sensitive to whatever it touches (when i have a sports bra on and take it off there are lines from the bra indented into my skin) has anyone else experienced this? Need to get my "before picture from the surgeon next visit and put it up here to really see the difference! Hope everyone is healing well!!
