Hey girlies! I am 20 years old, size 34A, and I have wanted a breast augmentation for a long time, so this summer I finally decided to do it! I found an amazing doctor in Beverly Hills and he was very nice, and his assistant was even nicer (message me if you want his name). My consultation was amazing - he showed me lots of pictures of his previous work (make sure your doctor has lots of good before and after pictures) and we decided on something in between 300-350cc. I wanted to be a mid C cup, because I'm pretty slim and I thought that would be perfect. He totally understood and described the whole procedure.
For the actual operation: It wasn't bad at all!! I went in an hour early and signed some papers, then my personal nurse (such a sweetheart) took me into the state of the art surgery center and had me put on a gown and lay down on a bed. She covered me with a little blanket, and then talked to me while she put in my IV. Then, the anesthesiologist came in and introduced himself and seemed really nice and knowledgeable, and put a little something in my IV to "help me relax." Then, they both helped me stand up and walked me into the OR with my IV and put on this great light blanket thing filled with warm air that kept me warm and then they put that plastic thing over my mouth and after a couple deep breaths I was out.
The next thing I knew, I woke up and the nurse was telling me that it was all over!! I was really out of it and a little nauseous but I asked what they put in and they said 350cc!! (silicone). My chest hurt a lot but mostly I was just really nauseous, but thankfully I had taken this little anti-nausea pill before the surgery so I didn't throw up or anything. Even though I was in a lot of pain, I didn't take any of the percs they gave me because painkillers make me nauseous and I didn't want to be any more nauseous than I was, so I just took 3 extra strength Tylenols which seemed to work fine.
For the three days it was pretty hard to get up from a lying down position and my boobs sometimes made a sloshing sound (and were really sore). But now I'm 5 days post-op and things aren't too shabby! The doctor checked me out two days ago and said everything looked great, and I have another post-op in two days, which is when I can stop wearing this gross surgical bra! The only thing though is that now, my incisions are actually starting to hurt a little more today, like sometimes they'll just sting, like it feels like they're ripping, but when I check the tape (under breast incisions) there's no new blood. I think my boobs are just starting to soften and it's putting more pressure on the wounds? I'm not sure, if anyone has this as well let me know!
Also, yesterday my boobs were SO ITCHY. Has anyone experienced this? Today, they're not as much - I think it might be from the antibiotics? Also, I experienced a post-surgery sore throat - anyone else get that? It's getting a LOT better though. I'll update again soon, but just to summarize - I am so happy I did this! My boobs look fantastic, my BF loves them, I'm 100x more confident and I just can't wait for them to keep softening. It's my 5th day post op and I can drive (though I have to drive like a grandma) and I go shopping with my BF and I can do almost everything I did before, just more carefully. I've even been going to the gym just to slowly ride the stationary bike - the one with the back on it is the best because you can do it without even moving your boobs at all and it's a decent cardio workout. So far my recovery has been great, but I don't want to jinx anything! I wish everyone luck and if anyone has any questions feel free to ask!
