Here Goes Nothin! 3 weeks post Bellevue, WA

I have considered getting a BA for years now and...

I have considered getting a BA for years now and it was just never an option in the past. So just this year my goal of feeling more like a women is in reach. I visited 4 doctors and 3 told me to go with silicone. I started out thinking i wanted about 325ccs, and then it turned into 350/375cc's and some how I have decided on 400cc's. I started to realize over the past couple of months that I just wanted to have nice perky breasts. The doctor explained to me that if I liked the way the 375's looked to go with the 400's as they would look small in my body.

So today was my pre-op and we just went over the details of what not to do the night before. My surgery is only 16 days away and the nerves set in today. I'm still trying to come to terms with paying that much money for just boobs but I really feel like after its done I would pay more! I just keep telling myself I work so hard in the gym to stay in shape but theres just nothing I can do to get bigger breast without this surgery. I've never had surgery before so i'm nervous about going under and how I will be when I wake up. I know that after my implants will look a little funky because I have constriction in my breast. The bottom part of my breast from my crease to my nipple is short so they will have to drop the crease and release some of the bands during surgery.

I hope having realistic expecations will get me through the first couple of months until they look normal. I am getting excited but within the next 2 weeks I hope more!

So I was talking to one of my friends today and...

So I was talking to one of my friends today and she asked me about working out the day before surgery...has anyones doctor told them not to? I didnt ask mine but I dont think I'll do any chest maybe just cardio? Any advice?

Also wanted to add that i am 5'6 135pounds and athletic build. The doctors have told me I have broad shoulders so I can handle a little more cc's. I am doing silicone HP 400cc's. I will put up pics soon!

Ok so today it final sunk in! One week to go and I...

Ok so today it final sunk in! One week to go and I will have boobies. I'm getting very nervous due to the fact I have never had surgery or even an iv! I am just thankful that my excitement has over powered my nervousness so far. Even my aunt could tell I was a bit distracted today...I also found that I have an amazing support system and my family backs on this 100%

So the count down begins! 7 days

3 days to go.....I woke up today got ready for...

3 days to go.....I woke up today got ready for work and it seems like the weeks have flown by. I am getting excited and the next 2 days are going to be crazy! I'm still very nervous about the surgery but everyone keeps telling me thousands of people get this done! I know but I don't like the fact that I will be out cold. When I was you her it used to bother me when I went to sleep knowing I was unconscious....is that weird? Anyways I'm so ready for this and can't wait to have cleavage without wearing an u ubber padded bra!

Ok so I just got home from surgery and everything...

Ok so I just got home from surgery and everything went great! Very weird to walk into the room hook u up to an iv and UR out! I woke up easy and was fine. Shaky because of the medication but it started to stop a bit after. It's a little tight but not too painful. More like I just did chest exercises. I'm not really sleepy so I'm just watching tv. I plan to stay on my meds on the dot for today and tomorrow as I e heard the second day is worse. So overall so far so good! Time to relax and take it easy. Will post some pics later....oh and I got 400cc hp unders

Ok so day 1 went by and was fine. Was able to get up and down without much pain. I noticed most of the pain was just by my armpit. I slept fine last night which I am great full cuz I man do I get grumpy if I don't sleep. Woke up this morning and I am a tad bit more achy but nothing unbearable. I'm super itchy tho under my lovely bra. I haven't taken it off yet so today when I shower should be great relief. My breast are still numb in some spots, mostly the left and I can't feel that nipple yet so hopefully it comes back soon. Other than that I am very happy so far and can't wait to see the end result!

So it's about 5am the third of recovery and I have...

So it's about 5am the third of recovery and I have like a burning feeling I guess on my left side!? Anyone experiencing this? It feels like the implant is pushing so hard on the bottom but my strap isn't too tight. I just started icing and it feels better now but I'm worried. Also on my left incision there is an indent... And it's kinda flat? Again anyone have this? I tried taking pics of the incision buy its hard to see. Also really swollen on the left side under the armpit. My post op isn't until Tuesday but I'm not sure if I should call today just to ask if this is all normal...it may be a long weekend!

Today is day 4 and today is the best day so far! I...

Today is day 4 and today is the best day so far! I still have a little bit of the burning sensation but i just ice and it goes away. I've started to space out my pain pills so i can stop taking them. Last night sleeping was fine...i slept until 8 actually! each day keeps getting easier. the swelling on my left breast has gone down a bit and the indent on the incision has started to go away. this morning i had a boob fart which i thought was the funniest thing ever, kind of felt weird but no pain. Yesterday i decided to get out of the house and go to the mall just to walk around. about 30 mins i started getting grumpy and tired. as soon as we got home i took a nap. the only down side to all this is i am going crazy sitting the house! i am extremely active and go to the gym at least 5 times a week! i cant wait to get back to normal. i go back to work tuesday after my post op.

Today was my post op and everything looks great!...

Today was my post op and everything looks great! Have to wear the band for another week 24/7 and then just at night. I can start wearing a sports bra also. I'm still having trouble sleeping tho...I wake up and my lower back is killing! Not sure what to do about it. I can go back to the gym next week but I have to take it easy. I'm kinda nervous about people noticing my new additions. I don't think a lot will but people I see regularly might but oh well. So I'm still a little sore on the left and swollen but I get to start massaging them down yeah! The incisions looked good and in perfect location so far. I'm super excited for the next couple of weeks! FYI I had to go back to work today boo!

So today has been a complete downer! I didn't want...

So today has been a complete downer! I didn't want to get out of bed. My left breast is being a pain in my butt! It hasn't dropped and just doesn't look like its making any progress! It starts making me feel like I'm gonna end up looking worse then I started. Over the weekend I had some pain in between the armpit and incision and me being me was like something is not right. I over analyze everything! And worse I can't go to the gym for another couple days...I use it as my stress reliever and man am I pissy... I feel awful for my boyfriend but he seems to managing ok. And he has been very reassuring that it needs time. But I'm impatient and I want it to look perfect now! Lol

Im 2 weeks post and First time at gym last night!...

Im 2 weeks post and First time at gym last night! Was so excited and self conscious but got over it. I only did 30 mins of cardio and oh man I was tired. Taking 2 weeks off really affected me. I went sports bra shopping and it sucked! Nothing fits right, a 34 is too small in the cups and a 36 it to lose around my ribs...so I haven't found the perfect bra yet but I'm not really sure I know what I'm looking for yet since its all still new. I think I would prefer tighter/snug bra since that's what I'm used to but who knows!

Ok so 3 weeks post and still one hasn't dropped!...

Ok so 3 weeks post and still one hasn't dropped! Very frustrating. Added new photo so u can see the right boob is not settling in place yet... Is this normal? The other is looking fantastic so it makes it even worse... Other than that I'm work out ever day and can sleep on my side. I get to take the strips off next week but I kinda got a peek at the scar And actually not bad at all
