Have BA / BL coming up. Will be May 16th, tho they are trying to get me in May 1 or may 2 if possible. Boy do I want in sooner. I am now a B / C cup, 5' 7" , 140 lbs, early fifties. Will be C / D after surgery. Doing silicone gel, moderate profile, under muscle. Doc says in her entire career she has only put in saline implants once. They harden and rupture, then more surgery is needed I am a gym rat. I pump iron often, doc thinks going under muscle won't be a big problem unless my pecs were to get much bigger than they are now. I did not breast feed my kids , tho many researchers think breast feeding is not what causes sagging. I have sagged since my twenties, but it has gotten so bad lately that I have to wear a bra until the moment I go to bed. The sagging is very uncomfortable for me. It just feels like something is drastically wrong, like i have these weird limbs dangling off my body that are unwanted, unneeded, in my way. I can't even jog with a very supportive jogging bra because the girls bounce so badly I will try to get before pix in here , once I am sure I have privacy here I sit on my arse all day at work, so I won't take even a full week off. I work at home one day a week, and when I go in, the commute is extremely short... And i luv my work. So I am hoping going back won't be brutal. I will have tons of food prepped in advance etc This forum rocks, I will use it to make a to do list

I am excited and nervous. My heart started beating faster when I received the email saying May 2 was possible. As they say, be careful what you wish for, for you will surely get it.
A friend who had this done years ago and said do NOT disappear from work for a few days and come back with obviously bigger girls. She said start wearing padding in the bra ahead of time... so when you go missing from work for a few days and return, the girls won't appear bigger, and it won't be obvious what you've been up to... So I've been following that advice.
BL and BA together. Doc says I'll be C/D afterwards. I have been that size before when I was a lil heavier but I'm B/C now.
I was kidding hubby, asking him if he wants to place a custom order. He was smart enough to say I look fine as I am now. I could NOT get any order out of him (hee hee)
PS wants approval from my primary doc, along with EKG, so I am scheduling all that tomorrow. Yes, you'll get pix.
Just got clearance from my physician for the...

The new girls will be slightly bigger than the current floppy girls. I've been wearing padding in the bra, specifically so I won't be obviously bigger immediately after having been gone for a few days (hee hee).
WHAT DO I TELL THE BOSS? He knows I have three days off... and I might ask to work from home part of the next week for half days. WHAT DO I TELL HIM? I suppose I could say I'm having a small medical procedure done, and leave it at that.
I'll have the entire house spic and span, stocked with groceries. Hubby and I do that every weekend anyway. And I have my ipad to keep me entertained.
The current girls reside 2 inches BELOW the fold. It's worth a month of inconvenience to change that.
Gonna be tough not pumping iron for a while, and I'm also going to miss shooting pool. I wonder when I can get back to that. Have a table at home, its lots of fun.
Pre op tomorrow, plus I write a huge check. Gulp....

I can't wait to get rid of these odd things flopping around.
Two weeks from today I will have brand new girls and I will be quite stoned.
I will post pix eventually

I got a huge list of prescriptions. I just now dropped all those off at the pharmacy.. except for the percoset. I'm going to ask for something else. Percoset makes me nauseous.
My doc was originally gonna give me 3 ambien (only). I told her if I am gonna sleep on my back for weeks I want more ambien - she gave me 20. I have an awesome leather sofa with double recliner - I will park there for 6 weeks. . I would not be at all surprised to see my hubby on the sofa with me. We are disgusting - can't be apart at night for 6 weeks.
I'm getting 375cc, under pec. I'll prolly be a C/D afterwards. Starting as a B-ish - but much of what I now have will be removed, it sags so bad.
Today I picked up items that women from this forum told suggest: back scratcher , a neck pillow, two pair of summer pj's that button in front (great Kohls sale) and also flexible straws. Doc wants me to take vitamin c twice a day now... and a week after surgery also start megadoses of vitamin E. I stocked up on all that.
I Told hubby he better cop a few feels of...

One picture shows me holding one boob where it SHOULD be - so you can see exactly how out of place the other boob is. The breasts are resting about 2 inches below the fold.
I am proud of my upper arms - I work hard - but I am NOT thrilled with the boobs.
Less than 48 hours to go. Surgery is at 12:30...

Surgery is at 12:30 pm on Wed. I arrive 11:00 am. Can't eat or drink anything that morning - so I anticipate a full day of fasting. I will wake up around 6:00 pm in recovery room. I anticipate a caffeine headache when I wake up (since no coffee that morning)... so I will have caffeinated soda ready to drink after I wake up.
House is spotless, laundry done, groceries bought, bills paid, some meals made in advance and frozen.
I will take ambien the nite before. Without it I'd be awake the whole stinking nite!
Tues nite will be one last good workout at the gym... along with many hours of shooting pool. A last hoorah.
Today is the day, leave in about an hour. ...

- Day of treatment
I have on thin, loose sweat pants, which are easy to get into, plus a very thin large Nike hoody (kinda warm today). Instead of sneakers, which are quite hard to put on and tie, I'm wearing shoes that I can slide into.
They had me take one nerve pain pill last nite, so I'm feeling a little happy.
They did let me drink clear liquids til 9:30 am, thank God! I'm not thirsty right now but I'd love breakfast right now.
I'm adding last pre pic (tank top)

From what I can see my tata's are simply gorgeous. I can't tell the cup size just yet. YES they are very high until the pec muscles relax.
My doc kept marking my girls and measuring stuff before surgery. Cracked me up when she got out her leveler tool, totally true. My Carpenter / artist / surgeon.
I do NOT remember the recovery room at all, and I do not remember the drive home. I just remember waking up on our nice recliner sofa, lol! NEVER NAUSEOUS.
I had Lots of pain last nite. Hubby fed me some yogurt topped with granola and them he gave me pain meds a few times. And he slept with me on sofa. My sweetie.
Not nearly as much pain this morning. Especially if I don't move much. Just took a lyrica and a Vicodin, should be very happy very soon.
Soon as I can I will post pix, they are very pretty
Well ladies I love my new tata's. The shape is...

Female doc who knows what it's like to go thru this. She gave me BEAUTIFUL breasts. Since she's a female she knows how to treat you best., eg she doesn't send you home with lines drawn all over your chest like the guys do.
