Hello everyone, I have read lots of blogs on here...

Hello everyone, I have read lots of blogs on here so I decided I join in the discussion. I am 25 and live in Florida, which means it's summer clothing all year round... not so good for someone who needs a breast lift! Since I was 15 I knew I wanted a breast lift and now, 10 years later my time has finally come. My surgery date is approaching quickly (in about 2 weeks!) and there's a lot to think about. When finding a surgeon I took many things into account. Obviously, the board certification was important. I asked my friends, women I work with, and read A LOT about local doctors. I went everywhere to meet with surgeons, from Ft Myers to Miami and everywhere in the surrounding areas. I've looked at sooo many reviews online I feel like I know the doctors personally. The doctor I finally decided on is not reviewed on this website but I will definitely give my opinion when it is all said and done, but so far she seems good :) (I will also be adding pictures). She sat with me and answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. Her office staff was very nice as well and were able to fit my consultation in last minute. They also worked with me when scheduling my surgery date and were helpful the whole time. Also, her price were reasonable.... now I know that's not what surgeries should be based on and of course I would never choose a cheap doctor over a reliable one but, let's be honest, cost is an issue. At least for me it was.
So as far as personal goals go... I would like to be able to take my bra off around my husband without feeling self conscious. Luckily for me, he was supportive when I was making my decision to get plastic surgery. He says he would be happy either way as long as I feel confident. And I definitely feel like having perky boobies would make me more confident. I just want to look good naked! I would also like to be able to wear normal bathing suit tops and cute dresses and shirts.
I'm feeling very excited and nervous! I get really nervous as I look at pictures of what breasts look like just after surgery but get excited when I see the healed pictures. Has anyone had to deal with bad scars? So far I haven't seen anyone on here with severe scars so I feel optimistic. I am also worried about not getting the results I am looking for, but I think anything would be better than what I'm working with now. I am not getting implants but have been assured by all the doctors that I don't need them, so hopefully they are right. I have heard that a breast lift can interfere with the ability to breast feed later on and that is what I am most worried about. It's something that is very important to me and is the only thing that makes me think about not doing it. But overall I can't wait! Well, that's how I feel for now but give me 5 minutes and I will be nervous again lol.
I would love if anyone has any tips. What bras has everyone found to be the best for post-op? Any magic scar removal secrets? Did anyone feel like their breasts were not their own anymore (something else I worry about)... any tips would be appreciated. Thanks and sorry this was so long. I will be adding pictures soon.
Ok, so the surgery is in 2 weeks. I think I am...

I have been trying to get back into a normal routine, back to my office job, chores, going out, etc. But I think I might have over done it because now I am in more pain than I was yesterday. I don't like using my arms and I am not comfortable putting my arms up very high. I feel like I am sore, which I wasn't feeling a few days ago. I was relatively pain free until I went back to work and went grocery shopping. Wearing a seat belt didn't help either. When I got home last night, I noticed a little bit of dried blood around my nipple... of course I freaked out and am now refusing to do anything that I can avoid and am back to being afraid to look at the incisions in case I find something bad. But the good news is I am now clear to take normal showers so no more sponge baths for me! And the boobs are looking really good... just like I wanted!
