boobs done Feb 14th @ beaucare Brussels

So I am booked in for my BA for feb 14th at...

So I am booked in for my BA for feb 14th at Beaucare. Have never done a blog or anything and having reading other people's, feel like I'm kinda missin out ;) I am booked in with Dr Van Zele, consultation was with Dr Vrambout, slightly worried as I have heard of Vrambout telling someone how big she will be able to go; then on day of surgery she was told she cant go that big. I am a B and would like a large DD, also have heard of people buying special surgery bras, do I need one of these? As I know Beaucare give you a support bra with the strap across and tell you to wear it for 6 weeks, so why would I need a surgery bra?! Any advice, comments would be really appreciated as I am super scared but super excited...cant sleep at night I'm that excited lol x
I just brought the work out ualf tops good support no wire and wore them for 6 weeks

My best advice would be to communicate your goals very carefully. The use of cup sizes as a reference ( for example DD cup) can be subjective and a source of miscommunication. You may find the use of goal pictures helpful during the communication process. Best wishes.

painkillers

I have seen a mixture of people either taking Paracetamol or Ibuprofen.....I am given Tramadol for the first few days but what shall I take after, as I have read posts about Ibuprofen causing the blood to thin. Any advice on the best painkillers to take? I want to be in as little pain as poss! Thanks :)
Hey Hun, I'm booked for the 31st I'm gonna do a blog soon. X

The strap was brutal for me and I was on muscle relaxers for the first two weeks. Keep this in mind as something to ask your doctor for. I went a but large with 550ccs, so it may be why I needed muscle relaxers because I was super tight. Good luck and I would try to get in for a few minutes with your surgeon ahead of the day to show him your wish pic as well as bringing it with you day of surgery. I had uncontrollable chills when I got home so have several blankets ready for your caregiver to use on you just in case.

can ovulation affect size?!

so another random question.... my breasts grow about a cup size when im ovulating and just before my period! they look a good size, however when im not ovulating they go tiny and look nothing like they do wen I am ovulating! on day of surgery, if im not ovulating is this a chance the surgeon will put a smaller implant in me because I will look smaller? I keep thinking if my boobs look bigger then I will get a bigger implant!? helpppp
Yes Hun, I am!!! X

cool :) soooo exciting isn't it, what size r u now and what size u wanting to go to? what cc did they say u could go to x

Yeah I was annoyed but she said I could have gone the next size up which was 305 but it would have been such a risk cos they would be too big for my body. I took loads of wish pics on my iPad and showed her the results I wanted to achieve and the main thing I wanted was a nice cleavage but also a bit natural. I'm 2 weeks post op tomorrow and I'm lying flat tonight for the first time since the op I can already feel myself dozing lol! I just hope I can get out of bed lol! How are you getting to Belgium and is anybody going with you? Xxx

can i take vitamins before surgery?

just one week before my BA now and am really starting to worry as I have been taking multivitamins and 1000mg vitamin c with zinc, to build up my immune system, hopefully helping me fight infection...now I have been reading numerous blogs online saying how you shouldn't take any vitamins two weeks before surgery, especially not vitamin c! please any advice on this, should I stop taking my vitamins?
Going on the Eurostar with my husband. How are you feeling now? Did you go under muscle? xxx

dropping

So will my breasts look bigger when they start to drop? I really don't want them to get smaller when the swelling goes down it is also hard to tell if they r swollen at all?!
Do you have any before and after pics would love to see how your getting on x

How you doing? x

hey hun everything well, I had my stitched cut at the doctors this morning, everything is fantastic, I still think they are swollen slightly though? also on the form they gave u it says that after 2 weeks ur scars can be massaged with a special scar cream and to ask your pharmacist, so I went into the chemist but he advised me to leave It another 2 weeks, til the scars are actually showing, what do u recommend? did u start massaging them this early? also did u do any massages for your breasts at all as I have heard its good to massage them not just for the scars but for the pocket the implant is in? have u heard of this at al? xxx
