Scheduled for BA on 3/22/12

Hello, I am scheduled for a BA next week....

Hello, I am scheduled for a BA next week. Currently on an emotional roller coaster. As many of you on here have mentioned the stess and excitment of this is normal. Worried that my size will not be what I wanted, that recovery will not go well etc... After reading the blogs I feel much better. I am 37 y/o, 5'5", 125 pounds mother of two boys 13 mo's and 6 y/o. I decided to go with saline, doc will go between 350-400 depending on what looks best. My husband has been very supportive and will be taking two weeks off to help with boys and recovery. Thankful that my mother in law and best friend will be driving the 5 hour trip to help for the weekend. Thank you all for allowing us to be part of your journey. It is very helpful to us who are just starting it.

In less than 24 hours I will be in the OR and getting my new boobs. The waiting period flew by fast. I am excited about the new me, yet nervous about the procedure. All will go well. :)

Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you all know all...

Hi everyone. Just wanted to let you all know all went well. Have been out of it for a few days. Bandage does not come off till Monday. Kinda a bummer, because there is lots of pressure. Will update with photos soon.

Hello all, looks like everyone has been recovering...

Hello all, looks like everyone has been recovering well. You all look great! Let's see surgery was March 22nd, the stress and wait of it all was not worth the anxiety. Surgery was a breeze. Went in at 8:30 home by 2:30. We live an hour away from my PS. Slept the rest of the day away. With the occasional wake for meds and a little nausea. Friday thru Sunday were all pretty much a blur. I think the Percocet was to strong it completely knocked me out. The bandage was very, very tight and did not allow me to sit up straight for long. Ice and rest were my best friends. Our house was full of helpful hands and I knew my babies were in the best hands. Dr. Q said surgery went great, she was surprised that she had to use 325cc in the left breast and 400cc in the right. They look great! Went for my first post op appt on Monday, it felt like I could instantly breath 100% better as soon as the wrap was cut off. I love my boobs all is healing well. I will be posting pictures up soon. Good luck to all of you awaiting your surgery. My only suggestion would be to go slightly bigger than what you plan on, if in doubt.

Finally got a chance to take some post op pictures...

Just a little funny for the day. My husband just told me it is "National Cleavage Day!" Love him... So for all of you that now have it or more of it without push up bras.... Happy National Cleavage Day! :)

It's been a while since I posted on here. Really...

It's been a while since I posted on here. Really just because I am doing great and have not had much to complain about. Today I finally woke up with very little to no " morning boob". Very happy about that, I still have to take the occasional motrin or tylenol. All is healing and doing massage that my PS recommened. I have been keeping up with the othere reviews glad all you gals are doing well. Happy Healing!!!

Hello! Our stories are somewhat similar. I got 400cc unders the 3rd of April. Was just curious what bra size you were fitting into?

Hi kberries09, you look great. I have yet to be fitted for my bra size. I am trying to wait to buy any until my swelling goes down. I purchased a comfy Warners bra which is a 36c fits great and a couple sports bras, a C and D.

I just read your update that your husband was celebrating national cleavage day with you...super funny. We also covered this in the blog last week. We pulled the top five and bottom five states based on search volume. CA did not make the top 5. You look great!

You look great! We are close to the same size pre-op and I'm getting 350cc unders. It's good to see what ours look like after surgery. Happy healing.

Hi, thanks on the compliment. I am sure you will figure out the best choice without any regret. Caring for you and the family takes planning and it sounds like you have a busy one. Good luck with your surgery. Will look forward to seeing your results.
