I have wanted a breast augmentation since i was in my teens, and always knew i was going to get one. I have a 2 year old son and breast feed for 7 months, leaving my poor girls two different sizes and not as full as they used to be. I am extremely excited to be getting my breast aug. in the next few months. I have done soo much research over the past 2 years trying to find the perfect doc. I am glad I found him! :)

My Sad, Uneven, Not even the same size GIRLS :(

They are pretty sad looking, breastfeeding left me uneven, and one boob larger and droopier than the other. I was the same size before i had my child, can't wait to get back to that and fill out both of my bra cups :)

Hey! I didn't know you were so close!!! About your comment on make me heal...For after surgery bras I have read a lot of good things on the coobie bra. One size fits all super soft that has done well for many people on here. I've even seen a few ps recommend them. I went ahead and ordered three at $20 a pop. They have a deal where you buy three you get $20 off... Buy two get one free!

3 month post baby boobs! miss 'em!

Awwwh i looooved my boobs at this time 3 months post baby, all full and clevage! :) soon to have, soon to have

Congrats and YAY! You are one day before me! Its so exciting! I ordered two of the Coobie bras because they happened to have them on Zulily and I got them for cheap! My PS said I have to stop all of my herbal stuff prior and wait for the go-ahead, so make sure you ask. I do a lot of herbal teas, eat whole foods, and use a lot of herb remedies for things. Make sure you ask or do research because some of those can increase bleeding or cause interference with aenesthesia! Ive seen people posting about bromelain and arnica. Both can be ok after but not before. Esp taking them orally as opposed to topical use. My research and knowledge about herbal is that stopping all things, including herbals and OTC meds, is best for risk and healing. Even the flax I put in my morning protein smoothies can cause excess bleeding because it thins the blood...

maybe...Changing CC amounts

Im thinking about changing CC amounts , I do want large boobies, but im afraid that they might look too large on my petite frame!
Awwwhh, this size picking is sooo difficult lol! I was thinking maybe 450cc instead?

1 Comments

What all have you purchased? I was thinking of getting those bras from make me heal, too. Let me know what you think of them if you do. I bought a memory foam travel pillow to keep my head elevated. I also bought the Thera-pearl for nursing moms because it's two ice packs that are shaped to fit your boobs.

Also, packing all of my 2 year old essentials, he will be away from me for a whole week!!!! what the heck am i going to do without him!? I called my PS nurse yesterday bc i was wondering when i can pick up my perscriptions?

Thanks hun! I remember a month ago when i thought it was gunna take forever before it got here, but i was being a workaholic lol and it when by fast working soo much. Thanks girl!
You're so thin that they deff don't look too small! Did u get to take the implants home for a few days? I looked up Jessa Hinton, are hers real or fake??? In some pics she looks natural and smaller, other times she looks huge(must be padding or no padding I guess)
She has fake ones for sure! and I'm sure there was lots of padding there too. I had to asked her in person if they were lol. But no they never let me take any home :(

I have all the essentials :)

This is all the stufff I bought for post surgery.

2 Comments

Yeah I was assuming when they looked HUGE that it was the padding. Regardless, she looks great. What!! Seriously my ps and I believe the last ps I went to says you take em home for a few days and see what you think
yes she does look amazing! Yeah i wish they woulda let me take some home, i live 5 hours away from where im driving for the surgery. But they never offered it to me.

Can't wait for your posts! It looks like you are doing just fine! Just take it easy, drink A LOT of liquids, so you flush all meds and anesthesia out as soon as possible. :) Happy healing to you pretty girl!

Got up early!

i Woke up at 7an to take some pills, im not in any pain at all! suprisingly! feeling pretty great! sitting on the couch today and going to enjoy my netflix shows. I have been icing my new boobs with frozen veggie bag and that has helped me out a lot. My nurse told me i can start taking my Arnica pills as soon as i finish one of the pills that they precribed to me. maybe those can take some of the swelling down a bit. If any of you have any questions feel free to ask below, i'd love to answer them for you. :)

thanks Nikki_2014! I am doing very well, i have a high pain tolerance so i do not feel hardly anything. I have been drinking tons of water and a lot of fruit, and yogart. & thank you for the tip on flushing out all of that anesthesia. And thank you for the heeling wishes. :)

thanks! i seem to only feel the pain at night when i wake up to use the bathroom thats when i take a pain pill, I have been sleeping fairly good, the first two nights i didn't but im getting better now :)

To the Ladies who have already had a BA.

Which bras have you found to be the most comfortable after having your breast augmentation? I am wearing a Fruit of loom bra because the material is so soft and it is sooo comfortable but i can't seem to find anymore anywhere around here? Any suggestions?

5 Comments

Hey I thought it was kind of cool a couple days before my surgery I came across your blog and saw that we were scheduled for a BA the same day with the same doctor. My surgery was right before yours .. Weird right? My husband saw you in waiting room. Anyways my surgery went awesome and have had no pain and have only taken my pain pills the day of surgery and at night ... I feel amazing and I seriously think dr Becker is one of the vest plastic surgeons out there. Congrats on your new boobs!!!

So i had my 2 week post op check up yesterday! had my steri strips taken off. They said im looking really great! I go back in 3 months so they can see the final result. I also got a $20 gift card from them to Victoria's secret towards a new bra when i can wear regular bras again :P I will take pics sometime today to show you how i'm coming along :)

looking good girl! you are GORGEOUS anyway. your 3-month post baby bod pics? are u kidding me? lol. I don't even have kids yet and I'd kill for that 6 pack.... anyways, I also have a drive for mine - a little over 3 hours.. how was the drive home the next day? Your progress is looking good. I, too, have a little asymmetry in fullness (most everyone does) but I bet once you have D&F completely you won't even notice it! How long did he say to wait before being able to actually wear normal bras on the regular?

My girls are looking so great my left is a little higher than my right, which it might be that way since my left was already a little higher than my right before my surgery. I will post some pictures later so you can see where I'm at! :)

Bismarck Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Becker is a great docter and knows what he is doing, he took the schooling he had to to be a plastic surgeon and then some more on top of it! That made me really comfortable knowing that! He was very into his patients and told you his opinion on things and also took into consideration about what you wanted. He let me pick my size and he said he would only say something if he thought it was too large for me. He explained everything very well to me and in detail. His staff was amazing and took very good care of me. I couldn't have picked a better PS to give me my breast augmentation. i recommend him to everyone!!!
