I Have Pseudoptosis and Am Getting a Lift with Breast Implants - Beachwood, OH

I wanted a breast aug. only but after much debate and seeing 4 doctors, I have decided to get a lift along with implants. All the drs. on this site said that I do not need a lift, but I do not want large AND saggy breasts. First Dr. said I needed a full anchor lift, 2nd Dr. said no lift saline, 3rd Dr. said vertical lift without moving the nipple and saline, 4th Dr. said no lift silicone. So you could see my dilemma. I decided to go with the 3 doc since I felt most comfortable with her. She uses Microvascular echniques (smaller instruments) and blocks nerves so you are not in a lot of pain. And you can NOT even see her scars in post op pictures after a year. I will be getting 330 cc saline (my dr. says silicone can be very harmful) And it is what I feel most comfortable with. I have a lot of breast tissue already so I think they will still feel real. Very nervous...can anyone relate to my situation and share their expereince? Thanks and I will keep updating this as I go through the process.

- Day of treatment
I was so scared of the scarring but after seeing the picture I think they will heal just fine. My dr is so great. I am in a lot of pain but only in my chest....it feels like an elephant is sitting on me. The incisions don't hurt just the top of my chest.
I'll keep updating:-)

Went to work today. I tried to drive but then realized that it hurt to turn the steering wheel??? So my fiance drove me. I am in so much pain right now (the Dr would not give me more pain meds) so I only have taken tylonol. I think maybe I wrapped myself too tight with the ace bandages?
I feel that I should be able to drive by now?? I do feel a little bloated too (even though I took a lazative to go to the bathroom) Did anyone feel bloated for a while after surgery? Or still be in this much pain?
Thanks for any advice/feedback :)

I loosened the wrap and it seemed to help my breast pain but I have severe back pain! I think it is worse than the breast pain. I woke up twice not being able to move from sharp pains in my upper and middle back.
Anyone else exsperience this?
I am not a whimpy person and thought I had a high pain tollerance so I am very fustrated that I still can not drive and feel this pain. I updated day 5 pics.....I am very happy with the results so far :)

I am feeling a lot better today! yay! I still have to sleep almost sitting straight up or I get back spasims. The breast are still very sore but the pain is tolerable. My fiance has to help me wrap with the ace bandage and put my surgical bra on and put shirts on over my head. It helps to let the ta-tas "breath" without the ace wrap and bra for about 10 min a day when I am bathing or getting readyf or bed. I will drive tomorrow for the first day.
My am able to sqeeze them and they feel pretty soft and real :) I get the bandages taken out in 2 days and will post pics and update then :)

I am feeling so much better now. Have a lot more range of motion...but left side still hurts when I do certain things. I have not started using any scar treatment yet...hopefully will get to go ahead from Dr. today. I am thinking of getting Maderma and silicone sheets. Anyone use these?
So far, I am happy with them....wish I went bigger though because in clothes I kinda look like I did when I wore a push up bra. But my Dr. said I could not go bigger because of my small frame. But girls that are tiny get big implants all the time????
Nipple sensitivity has gone done a lot...my fiance can actually touch me now- hah.
