Hi girls! So, here's my history.
I am 21 year old, no child, around 5,4 of height and 137lbs, living in Brazil!
Since my breasts started growing, felt like they should not be growing like that. I lost around 26lbs 2 years ago, never been really heavy, just a little overweight, and even before the weight fluctuation my boobs never looked how I wanted to.
I have a good frame, lots os muscles in legs and arms (work out quite hard since I was 18) but really BAD skin, with a bunch of strech marks in my breasts, back, legs, most of them showed up while I was growing.
So, therefore said, next saturday I will be submitting into a breast lift procedure, along with 300cc implants and lipo of flanks and abdomen.
I intend to post some pictures later, so we can keep up following my results!
So guys, i mentioned before that i would do along...

Woul like to mention as well that most of people who a tell about the surgery aren't all supportive. In fact, many try to convince me i should not do plastic surgery. I guess most people does not have the courage to put yourself under pain, just to look good.
Every time I refuse some tasty food, I suffer. Everyday in gym, I suffer. So, I guess it is my choice to do things to feel better, and as long i'm healthy, I can't see the problem with that. Obviously, if you have no pain, there's no gain. My body is my temple, and I WANT to look good. I believe I really deserve looking into the mirror and feel like a million bucks, feel like a bombshell, make my boyfriend feeling proud of me and other than that, feeling good about myself.
I'm young, have great body figure, pretty muscle legs, defined arms, and yes, looks DO MATTER for me. The way I look, really matters to me, that is the reason why I'm doing that.
Maybe that will change with time, those thoughts, but for now, I want to be hot as hell. Work my ass of in the gym for that, goint through plastic surgery for that.
After that said, would like to mention that I have set down in reality so I know how I could look like, I don't expect anything unrealistic =).
If I knew I would be so judged, would not have told many people, as I did.
Please excuse some misspells or grammar errors, english is not my first language =)
Here I am, on the other side now and taking some...

- On day of treatment
Arrived at the hospital around 8 am, changed to a *beautiful* gown and waited for a little. After being taken to the o. r., the doctor came, gave me some things in the IV and I blacked out. Felt like 5 min, but I woke up four hours later. Because I had an epidural, my legs and everything like my bum and legs and even my girl stuff was all numb, so I couldn't pee :/. Such an awkward feeling! After some good rest I'm here, at home already. Feel a little sore, most under my boobs and back, but so far quite manageable. Just sad that I can't look at them until wednesday, on my post op appointment. As soon as I can see them I will take some pics and update :) gotta take some rest now
Here to tell that I survived first nigh :). At...

. What hurts the most it is to get up, once I stand in my feet, feels like my breasts are going to fall on the floor, and at night I also needed some extra pillows so.my arms would get in the same level of my chest.
Most of the pain is under the breasts and my back. I also find hard to take a deep breath, because of the pressure in my chest, so sometimes I get a little short of breath when I'm talking. Just want this shitty pain to go away.
My doctor says should not put ice on the breasts... even though I'm following his directions, I really would like to ice ny breasts a little, to see if it helps the pain. The surgical bra that I'm using it Ian quite tight too, worsening the tight chest feeling. By now everything is quite a pain in the ass but I guess once I heal and feell better things will seem in place ;)

Forgot to mention these days that I've got gummy bear implants, made of cohesive silicone gel. Here in Brazil doctors don't use saline implants (I never seem them here)
I'm also feeling better everyday! Today I had a good nigh of sleep, only disturbed by the fact that I can't change position at night and by the back pain, but with virtually no pain on the breasts. Itchiness increased a lot on bottom of my breasts.
Since saturday I also experienced some constipation (I guess many will have some on the first days) butility last nigh and today I was able to use the bathroom so I believe this is solved too, I was actually pretty worried because my belly was so swollen that I looked 4 months pregnant!
Talking about painkillers, the day after surgery was hard, since I decided to use only Tylenol during the day, but it was practically nothing on the pain. At nigh I had a stronger, codeine based painkiller and I worked better for my sleep. Had the last pill last nigh and I probably won't need them anymore, I'm in day 4 (counting the surgery day) and I guess this is good! So far so good ; )

I'm now 5 days post op and feeling good! Not feeling to much pain, just a bit disconfort to sleep (sometimes it still feels like bowling balls on my chest). I also noticed that if I put to much distress to my body i'm likely to feel muscle related pain, on top of my left breast.
Talking about the implants, left breast is a little higher on my chest, but i will start massaging and wednesday I will have a post op appointment, in wich I'll ask if I'll need a stabilizing band, that is a band made of compressive fabric that will make the implants to set on the right place.
Im really happy with my results so far and i guess it can only get better =).
I would like to tell too, pray for the victims of the fire, that happened in a nightclub on the south of my country. I don't have any related people there, where it happened, but I'm from Sao Paulo, the biggest city on my contry and it could have occurred here, it could have been me, my boyfriend, some of my friends,
Pray for their souls =(
Ahh the shooting pains! Wednesday went to doctor...

Im also really scared that my boobs will sag again =( the implants have dropped a little, dont look saggy at all but since my skin is really bad i am overreacting and MUCH scared that it will happen. The open incision scared me a lot too, really afraid to happen to other incisions, but Im using a treatment cream to help it heal.
I never ever had a single moment of regret, just a few down moments where im scared my boobs will sag and the incisions will open...

Is said also that submuscular implants take longer to drop and to have less swelling... I hope left one drops more, but I will be satisfied even with a little assymetry, just a lot better than 21 years old and saggy!

Reached the 8 weeks mark, 2mo PO. I'm working out aready, some more pics uploaded. Scars are still sore but boobs feel pretty natural!
Just really worried, sometimes I see a HUGE difference between them, but when I look at pictures does not look that bad. Do you think they turned out too different? I know i was not even before surgery!
