3weeks after my consultation I had my surgery. I'm 1 day post op and feel amazing and love what I see. I had a lift with 500cc of saline under muscle.
You look great already!!
they look great! =) what was your healing process like?

Excuse the very little info with my 1st post but I am now 3days post op and I feel AMAZING! I have no bruising and have not taken any herbal meds to prevent it. Day 1 (post op) was my sorest day and even then I did not take any pain meds until late in the evening when my upper back was tense. Through the whole process I have taken 1 Valium(which was the night following surgery), and 1 Hydrocodone (I only took a half at a time). I was back to driving on the 23rd although I had to make turns slowly. Ive already started measuring to get an idea of my future bra size and I'm looking to be around DD/E. I pre op I was a B/ small C and have 465implants filled with 500cc of saline.
Looks good, this is exactly what my PS suggested for me, im 38 B and getting 500 silicone under the muscle thru the nipple, ( need a slight lift on my right breast) hows the healing coming along? Are u getting sensation back in ur nipples? Pls post some more pics. :-)

Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf! You look fantastic! Had you been contemplating a breast lift for a while? Sounds like you're having an excellent recovery with minimal pain and discomfort. Let us know how bra shopping goes!  :)

I'm now 9 days post op and happy with the way things are going! I have developed 2 medium sized bruises from me massaging and pushing the implants down. My left boob feels like its mine while my right doesn't quite feel the same...yet. But I'm sure it won't be much longer because most of the numbness is also going away. I've tried to go to VS for a sports bra and that was a fail so ill leave it to the sports manufactures, for now.
Looking amazing!
Wonderful results!
I feel like I am healing too fast but that's a good thing! I have to keep my steri strips on until the 13th so I can't see how the incisions are healing up. My right breast is numb but only 1/4th of it, that side also has some air but over time those will fixed themselves. I will post updated pics tonight. I am so happy that I went for a "larger" sized implant.

It has been exactly 3 weeks since I had my lift...

It has been exactly 3 weeks since I had my lift with implants so I was allowed to remove the steri strips. I'm happy with the way things were placed but felt naked without a bandage over them so I bought Scar Away Silicon sheets to help with the scaring and to make them feel protected. I am still riding high on the side with my dominate arm so I've slowly started to work back into my workout routine in hopes of evening them out. I'm not suppose to be working out until next week but I don't want to wait that long since I feel fine with most exercises. Next visit with Dr. Hedden is June 10thz

After reading the many reviews about Dr. Hedden I scheduled a consultation with him. Immediately after the consultation I KNEW he was the only person I wanted to do my surgery.
