SO my kids are 7 and 3 yrs old. I breastfed both...
After kids they looked bad, but its when i started eating clean and work my but off to get a decent stomach that my kids also destroyed....ha ha my husband thinks I'm fine he way i am, i am not doing this for him or anyone else but ME! Any mother knows how hard it is and how we put ourselves last (even my dog comes before me) well this time its my turn while I'm still young ;)
before kids i was a large B, i was ok w the size i would just use ultra padded bras. i never liked my boobs but i also never contemplated surgery, until my kids were born :( i went from a B to a DD :( then a very saggy deflated C (according to VS)
originally a year ago before i started eating clean i went for a tummy tuck....then after reading tons of reviews i decided its a very big procedure with lots and lots of time for healing and swelling, so i decided to eat clean and work out.
it helped a lot! I'm still not happy amy tummy but i don't think its worth the $, the pain and the scar, right now. So i will get my boobs fixed!
if anyone has ANY tips for swelling, scars or what to purchase to help with the recovery please let me know! i am so so scared and cannot back out!!
Thinking of scar treatment
Profile for small person?
I don't see the dr until sept 10th and I am very impatient. Lol I was thinkin mod plus but we will see. Thanks :)
Ps. Getting nervous. If anyone has a lost of things to buy that would be helpful as well :)
I have my pre-op on Wednesday! Yikes!
I do not want to be in pain. But my question is for the ladies who already had this done did you take one or 2 of the percocets (mine medicine is oxycodone/acetaminophen 5-325mg pills. It is the generic pills for the Percocet) at a time or 1 every 4 hours?
I am a small person and have never taking these before so I guess I'm a little nervous on how I will feel on them but don't want to be in pain and have to catch up. I am only 106lbs so not sure if 2 at a time Is to much??! Just a little paranoid.
i still don't believe its really happening!
I DID IT I DID IT I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!
i got there at 6am surgery was 730am. When i was saying bye to my husband was the only time i shed a tear :/ that was a little hard...i got rolled down the hall. The nurse told me they put a cocktail in my iv, i was feeling good...we went into the OR and no joke within 30seconds i must have been out, no warning no mask, i have no idea how it happened..lol The nurse did tell me they put something in my IV to "forget" so that may be why i don't remember.
I woke up surprised it was over, very minimal pain (almost 12 hrs after surgery still minimal pain) i had to pee 2x while i was in post op- which is good, i want to get that anesthesia all out!
I took a perc right before we left the hospital (Just one) the ride home was good, i loved the wind blowing in my face from the window...felt good.
Now I'm in bed (walking a few times to help prevent blood clots) my husband is being amazing with helping me. i have my post op tomorrow at 12:00! i haven't seen them yet :/ impatient me took the bra off and couldn't see a thing with all the gauze lol.
I seriously recommend any who is considering this to do it!! I still can't believe i did it and i was so calm the entire time! Thank you everyone for your well wishes!!!! ill update tomorrow after my post op :)
First post op visit
I havent eaten much :/ I just don't have an appetite, i ate a few bites of watermelon last night and a few bites of soup. So far today i ate most of a bowl of cereal, a couple cookies (My sister brought me homade chocolate chip cookies, i could not pass that...lol) and a few bites of annies mac and cheese with a few crackers. Overall still doing good!!
350cc smooth round moderate plus profile gel
I'm only taking my antibiotics now every 8 hrs. I haven't eaten much :/ I don't have much of an appetite and I have acid reflux from probably the medication? It feels like air is trapped in my throat. I'm hoping if I eat that will go away although it almost hurts to swallow from the acid reflux (I'm just guessing it reflux) I don't get it often only sometimes when I take my vitamins without eating but it doesn't last this long! I'm hoping it goes away soon.
I've been sleeping pretty good which I'm surprised about bc I am a tummy/side sleeper! Happy healing everyone xoxox
Update day 4
I went 26 hrs without a perc, I did however take one last night while I was in bed not for pain I was just uncomfortable bc I hate sleeping on my back !! That perc helped! I'm going to try not to take one tonight but I love sleep ;)
I see my doctor again tomorrow at 1:00 :)
Happy healing everyone!
2nd post op appt. day4
6 Days PO
I can't wait to heal and show before and after pics with certain clothes :)
One week today
11 days PO
My right is still the more swollen one. That's why my nipples look uneven :/ hoping the swelling goes down. I'm going to try and not use my right arm as much and see if that helps.
Tomorrow makes 2 weeks :)
17 days PO
3 weeks and 4 days PO :)
I am feeling great a little sensitivity on my right breast, she's been the troubled one :/
4 week update!
The PS said my boobs are definitely still swollen, a little squarish at the bottom and bc they are still swollen the areolas are a little larger.
PS told me to start using scar guard and he said i may not need the silicone strips bc my scarring is healing so well! I already bought the silicone sheets before the surgery so i will still use them since i already bought them :) i will just wait until I'm done w the scar guard. Ps said NO underwire bras yet (of course) but to be honest they look freakin amazing in a non padded, no underwire sports bra that i don't care :)
I used to have to always adjust my boobs during the day, i would get the "potato" boobs where the boob comes out of the bra and you can tell even with a shirt. They would fall underneath the bra...just gross. NOW they look better in shirts without padding and NO adjusting. SO besides looking and feeling better its way more comfortable!!!
i havent eaten clean since a week or 2 before surgery!! OH MY GOD i need to get back on track so my belly somewhat matches my boobs :)
I pretty much sleep on my side or on my belly with a soft pillow under my chest (i don't think i need the pillow but makes me feel better knowing its there and its comfy :) )
4 wks 4 days PO
I expected to be moody and wasn't. The only thing that annoyed me was not being able to pull my self from a laying down position while on my back in my bed to a sitting position without help in the beginning...that was annoying. To people still deciding weather or not to do this I suggest 100% DO IT. The thinking and preparing is the worst :)
I hope everyone is well.
Happy healing XOXO
I can't say enough great things about Dr. Seckal and Dr. Doherty! They are amazing together. Since you have 2 certified board plastic surgeons operating on you at the same time generally the hours of surgery is cut in half! Not to mention they are both perfectionists!! :) I am 4 weeks PO. They have both been great as well as the entire staff, all super friendly! Dr. Seckal makes you feel like your family. So happy I did my research and went to the best of the best in my area :)
