Tomorrow I'll be 1 month n 10 days post op and going to see my PS ;-)

Hi ladies! I'm 40 years old, 5'6" 116lb flat as an iron board lol I daily wear a 34B with quite a bit of padding, without the padding I will totally be an A. I have been for many years considering this, going back and forth and I finally decided that is now or never. I need all your advise and support. I look at my tiny twins and I love them, they are sooo cute and we have been together like this for so many years LOL but honestly I think I will look way better with a full B. Hubby is super supportive and he says he likes me the way I am and will like me in whatever way I want to be. He made clear that if I do this is for me and only for me, he says if it makes me happy he supports me. He is just the best!!!!!!


I'm going to have my consultation this coming Thursday Feb. 7th. I know the plastic surgeon pretty well and I know he is amazing. He is the kind of person that doesn't try to sell you into anything and advise you on what he thinks is best for you. I have been in his clinic several times for laser treatments for some sun spots that I didn't like and also to remove a few spider veins and I'm very pleased with his practice. I asked him few times about treatments that are more expensive and it made me feel very confident with him that he didn't send me towards the more expensive but towards the ones he thought were better for me.


I'm planning on going with silicone under the muscle, 350ccs or at least is the way I feel right now. We will see during the consultation what he has to say. I have no fat at all so I know I can't get big ones because it would be hard to look natural since my body is quite thin and I hear people with less fat has more trouble looking natural since the implant even being under the muscle doesn't hide very well. Any ways...not sure if thats true but as I say we will see with the PS has to say. I have a job that requires to meet with a lot of people daily, walk quite a bit and mostly talk a lot. The PS nurse told me that if I get my surgery on a Wed. I'll be ready to go back to work the following Mond. but because what I have been reading here, I doubt it!. I think I deal pretty well with the pain but I'm kind of freaking out a little reading some of the stories. I'm planning on being off work for 8 or 10 days.

I'm also scare and worry about some things I have been reading here about Capsular Contracture though I learned that is less likely when the implant goes under the muscle and I guess is a question of luck and there is not much to do to prevent it.


I need all your advice and support ladies!!!!!!!! Thank you sooo much to all of you for updating on your journey, it's tremendously helpful!!!!!!!!

Thank you! I can't wait until Thursday to have my consultation. I'm sure I want this, just nervous!

So after my consultation my PS decided that high profile will be best for my small frame. I loved how the 300ccs look on me but not going to commit on a size. I trust my PS surgeon tremendously. He said the communication between us is the most important and he agreed with me when I told him that I was confused about choosing Ccs because the same size doesn't look the same in different people. I love the 300ccs in some girls then I look at others and look the same with 350ccs. I even looked at pics of some girls that got 400 and 425ccs and look the same than other girls with 300ccs. So my PS told me to give him pics of the final look I want to achieve and once in the OR he will try few sizes to get the look I want. I trust him so much I told him to do what he think is best. He knows my taste and know I don't want anything huge. I told him to please don't make me look like Dolly Parton and he laughed and said he will not let go out the door looking silly! So Pre-op will be this Wednesday Feb. 27, I'm very excited but super nervous too. I'm scheduled for March 13! Any advise and recommendations are welcome ;-) I count on all of you girls to cheer me up to make it thought the first few days!. Going to post some pics of me as I look now. Hugs to all of you, I'm very happy and thankful I found this site, you all are amazing and very helpful!

Try the rice test, to give you an idea of size. It's a great way to try out your new look in different clothes. There are some things that I know a lot of the "boobie brigade" on here agrees are essentials for the healing process. Arnica tabs and gel, this helps relieve swelling and muscle pain. Cocoa butter, keeps the skin pliable and helps with the stretching, smooth move tea for the BM's (or lack of I should say...) And lots of love and support which you already have!!!! Good luck and keep us posted!!! XO
Thank you so much :-) I'm going to start getting the things you told me. I'm so excited, I just wish I could go in for the surgery and wake up a when the boobs are already down n soft and no pail lol I'll keep you posted and will take pics to be able to see the changes. XO

Hello ladies! Sooo 2 days and it will be done! My surgery is this Wednesday and I must say I woke up this morning freaking out! I'm starting to feel very nervous. I'm very excited to see my new girls but for some reason I woke up this morning super nervous!. I have no one other than hubby by my side and giving me support and he is really being wonderful so far. I count on all of you to kick my butt when I get down and cheer me up a bit if my mood get down. I hope I have a good and fast recovery like many of you. For those that pray, please keep me in your prayers, for those that don't pray well think of me and wish me luck. I want to thank you all for being so wonderful and so supportive. I'm so glad I found this site!!!. It is amazing how we are all here from different countries, age, race, and we are all together supporting and helping each other. You girls are the best!!! Hugs to all of you. I'll keep you posted of how things go!!!

Hi ladies! I wanted to let you know I'm doing ok....

Hi ladies! I wanted to let you know I'm doing ok. Pain is little and manageable, tightness and pressure is increasing a bit since I got swollen. I don't feel any pain in the crease where I got my incisions but under the arm pits it hurts a little bit only if i touch there. The middle of the chest feels like very bad heartburn but I think is because of all the stretching my muscles and skin are doing. I took a Vicodin a little while ago so excuse my writing. I love my boobs already and can't wait for them to drop and fluff, they are super hard n high. Only took a pic so far so I'm going to post it do you girls can see it, it's not a good pic but the best I could do for now. Oh.... can't wait to shower, they told me I should wait until tomorrow. Sure a nice shower will make me feel like me again. So far I can't complain, I'm not having fatigue or nauseas or anything and I still feel I have all my strength so I hope to continue this way, crossing my fingers! Thank you ladies for your help, advice and support!!! XO

Hello ladies! I have a question, I could not sleep last night because of the position on bed with several pillows behind my back. This afternoon I tried to take a nap and same thing, so the muscles in the back are killing me. Any ideas to be able to sleep more comfy?Hope you all are having a happy healing and to the ones waiting for their surgery to come I only have to tell them that it's totally worth it!!! XO

Hey! I tried sleeping elevated the first night too and had the same issue more with my neck than my back though. But my PS said to lay however is comfortable, so last night I actually slept in my own bed with just two pillows under my head and I slept sooo much better. Hope you can get some better sleep tonight. Your results are looking really great so far! I am super happy with mine as well but also can't wait for the dropping and fluffing. Lol! The shower will feel really good to when you take one tomorrow. It will help with those sore muscles. Hope you feel better tomorrow! :) xoxo

I'm HUGE! I only got 300ccs high profile but the girls are so swollen they look huge lol can't wait for the swollen to go down. Almost no pain just pressure and tightness. I have to admit that things are going much better than expected. Took 2 Dulcolax last night and still nothing, going to buy some smooth tea today because I really will feel much better if I could go to the bathroom. Any suggestions?
Took my first shower last night and it felt wonderful!!! Had to take off the surgical bra because it was too tight and I'm wearing a sport one that I got at Target, way softer and more comfortable. Will have my post op on Monday at 9:30 AM. Can't see the incisions because they are cover with the sterol strips but hubby said they look pretty good and dry ;-). Will post more pics later. Btw my PS is amazing I dont have a single bruise!. Hope you all are having a great day, happy healing!!!!!! XO

As I said earlier, my girls are huge! They are sooo hard and tight I feel they are going to explode. Not pain but quite a bit of pressure. Went out to the store with hubby today and had to stop a few times to catch my breath because I was exhausted. So far I love my new boobies I just hope the swollen go down quite a bit!!! Not taking any pain med today, I hated those pills, made my mind foggy, I don't know how people can get addicted to those. Hope everybody is having a good weekend and a great healing. Hugs to all of you!!!

Hi. I'm so glad you're doing well. I'm scheduled for April 10th and I'm a little nervous. I thank you for your diary . It has put me so at ease. I'm forty myself , going with 300cc ( PS suggested) and I was worried . Just like you I'm a 34b patted LOL so I guess I know what to expect now. Thank you! I'm going with underarm saline but I don't recall if is over or under muscle. Can someone explain the difference? Please keep updating your diary, is helping me a lot. Again, I'm glad you are doing well. :)

Glad to hear you are doing well! Looking great! I am so thankful for your pics. I am similar stats and considering 300 to 325cc, but hearing you say they are huge, I am thinking more towards the 300. Happy healing!

Thank you! I'm so happy I did this. There is no pain at all just a bit of discomfort because of the tightness but you will be fine. The worse for me was day 2 and 3 because I was very swollen, still am but a bit less and hope being even less every day. I was also considering 325ccs but m I had a wonderful PS and he said getting HP 300ccs will be great for me. I think more will have push me towards looking a bit fake. It's amazing how they change every day. I could see a big different day by day. I'll have my first post op tomorrow and hopefully the sterile strips will go off. Also they will teach me how to massage them, not looking forward to that part, I'm afraid to hurt something. What day are you schedule for?, you will do great and will love them ;-) Big hug!!!

First post-op today went great. I learned how to massage them today. I was king of freaking out thinking about it last night but so far it didn't hurt at all. I will have my second post op next week and they will remove the stitches then, can't wait. I woke up this morning feeling almost normal. Still some swollen and tightness but not pain at all. The sleeping still sucks and is killing my back but after tonight I will be able to sleep with only one pillow woohoo lol Still they told me not to lift anything heavy but I can lift my arms to wash my hair and all that. The nurse told me today that as long as I don't have pain is good to start moving my arms normally. I've been doing things with my arms but I was afraid for some reason to lift them above my head, but not anymore. I got my surgery on the 13 at noon so officially now I'm full 5 days post-op. I didn't take any pain med yesterday and on the 3rd day I only took one to help me to sleep. Something I thought it was very funny. I was going to take a shower last night and I told hubby to come and help to dry my back like in 15 min. Well hubby was making dinner and forgot I was in the shower. It took me few minutes to figure out how to open the shower door lol I was trying to push it open with my hands but it was too hard and every time I was trying the muscles in my chest contracted and felt weird do I finally opened the shower foot pushing it with my head lol hey you have to do what you have to do, right? LOL Hope everybody is doing fantastic. Big hugs and happy healing to all of you!!!!

Haha you are so funny. I can completely relate with having to do weird things to get around...even to get out of bed or a chair. I had an interesting time trying to shower today as well. You take for granted being able to use your hands to open and close things, and move things. Now everything just feels weird. I'm glad your post-op went well!! I have mine on Thursday and will learn some massage techniques as well...then have my stitches removed the following week. What techniques were they showing you? Also so you sleep with the surgical bra or compression garments at all? You look amazing btw! Not huge at all--just right. Happy healing :).

Wake up with no pain at all today. Just a mild discomfort since they are very tight. I have been doing few thing around the house and as a result I'm a bit more tight now, I guess I'm getting a bit more swollen. I can't wait for the fullness on the top to go down and start feeling them more soft!. Hope everybody is having a great day. Big hugs to all of you!!!

Well ladies, I'm still waiting for my boobs to drop and fluff LOL I have 0 pain, and minor pressure and tightness. I normally don't like to take any meds and lately I have been taking so many vitamins and the Bromeline or whatever is the name and the Arnica pills, and the Vicodin for a couple if days....so as a result I started having horrible acid reflux. I didn't know what it was because I never had it before. I feel a bit of pain in my throat and really bad pain down my breast, in between both breast but lower. I work at a hospital so I checked with a Dr today and yes "bad acid reflux" so I just started taking Zantac only until it goes away and hopefully since I stopped all the pills it will not come back. It was so bad that I was at work this morning and I asked one of the nurses to check my blood pressure because I thought I was going to pass out but she said my pressure was fine. I feel a bit better but it's still annoying me so I hope the Zantac I just took start working fast!.
I just got a super comfy bra from Walmart, not going to invest any money in expensive bras that I will not be wearing in few weeks and I can't wear the surgical one it makes me feel like a fashion suicide lol needless to say is super uncomfortable. My nurse told me that as long as I wear something is fine so here I go, something cute, comfy and cheap!. Hope everybody is having s great day. Happy healing and to the new ones here still thinking about it don't be afraid and you are going to do great! XO

Yay! So glad you went out and got a bralette today too. Lucky that you aren't in any pain either! I am still, and I understand now, why people might not be able to tell you got implants lol. I work in HR for the Army and wear tighter Jcrew-type sweaters sooooo...needless to say hahaha....You're looking amazing btw!
  • Reply
I'm getting the same size so I've been following your story closely. From all the stalking I've been doing of all the stories, I think you seem to be right on schedule. I think when they drop and soften you are going to just love them. They are a very nice size for your frame. When do you start massaging? I hear that helps a ton!

I feel fantastic!!! Love my girls, I can't wait until they drop since the only thing I don't like much right now is the round fullness on the top be side I'm very thin and that round there make it look a bit fake but they are still quite hide and since I got HP (which I love) they still will change shape quite a bit. No pain at all, just a bit of pulling from the stitches but luckily they will be out tomorrow woohooo I can't wait!!! Slept like a baby last night, finally only with one pillow, I was so excited. It is amazing how little things that on a normal basis you don't pay attention to can make you happy LOL For all the girls about to get the surgery I have to say that yes is an emotional journey for the first few days. You just have to hang in there few days and you will absolutely love your new look. First day they were still small just with the implant in and I loved them. Second day I started to worry a bit because they were bigger and I keep wondering if I took the right decision and even missed my tiny boobs lol. Third day I was freaking out, I was soooo swollen I was almost double the size I wanted, my skin was so tight I thought I was going to explode. I got up the next day and didn't even want to look at them because I didn't like them, I was very emotional and I almost cry but a few hours later I was trying on clothes and loved them!!! Now, I'm totally in love with them. I'm a very confident person with high self steen but I have to admit I never really feel like very attractive, now I feel complete, my new girls make feel very feminine and can't wait to go out to get new lingerie and bikinis!!! Hope you all are doing great, much love and hugs to you!!!!!

You are looking fantastic, my surgery is on the 11th of April, so I follow your story as I am getting nearly the same size as you, 310cc, hope mine turn out like yours. I too worry about being too small/large but seeing your photos puts my mind at ease :)

Thank you! I will keep posting pics! I'm in love with my size now! I was worry too about bring too small/big and I freak out on the 3rd day because I was super swollen and hated the size lol but I really live them now, I just can't wait for them to soften and drop ;-)

Hi ladies! I got my stitches removed yesterday....

Hi ladies! I got my stitches removed yesterday. I'm 13 days post op and do far I'm super pleased with my results. I'm feeling great and love my girls. They are still a bit hard but every day I feel them getting more soft. Because I'm petite and they are a bit tight so the nurse gave me yesterday a strap to wear at night to help the girls drop ;-) I'm also very impressed of how well my incisions look though they are quite red because the sterile strips irritated my skin but they are very thin and completely close :-) Now my question is, when I touch the incisions it feels think and hard in the inside. I asked a couple of Drs friends of mine and they said is normal because is the way is healing inside and the scar is form in the inside to close up the incisions, do any of you girls feel their incisions hard and a bit think inside? Hope you all are having a fantastic day!!! Love and many thanks to all of you for being here by my side all the way on this journey!!!

Hey!! My incisions are hard and thick too, how my PS's nurse explained it is it's the interior stitches, they feel bumpy and thick because they are tied into knots and will go down after those stitches dissolve :)

So happy about it because I was started to get worry and the pain was really bothering me a lot! The girls are getting softer but they are still riding high despite using the strap to sleep. I wonder when they will start changing shape lol I got HP and I know they still will change shape, they are still too round looking. Hope everybody is as in love of their girls as I am with mine ;-) Happy healing ladies!!! XO

I can't wait to see him and tell him what an amazing job he has done!. I also have some questions like when I'll be able to wear a regular bra with under wire or if I can go back to my exercise and running routine. Hope everybody is having a happy healing!!! Hugs to all of you!!!!
