I will be 30 October 4th & I've had three kids,...
I will be 30 October 4th & I've had three kids, the youngest is two. I nursed him until he was 2 years & 2 months old & finally quit just over a month ago. I have to wait three months after nursing to get my breast augmentation so I am trying to be patient, but the excitement is killing me!! I am 5'3" & weigh 125 pounds, but I'm trying to get back down to my pre-baby weight before I had my last baby which is between 105-110. I am a small B cup normally & I initially planned on going with between 300-400cc silicone implants teardrop shaped under the muscle. I had my second consultation with my plastic surgeon on Tuesday & after trying on several different sizers & speaking with her, I am leaning more toward 410-435cc round silicone. I like the way they looked & she said I have enough breast tissue for that. I want to talk to her again about it now because I have read that ccs show differently on a petite person & with me being short I don't want to look top heavy or slightly overweight. I am also having an otoplasty performed while I'm out! Can't wait for the new me!!
Appointment number 3 this Saturday!
Hey gals! Just wanted to add that I have another appointment Saturday morning. We are going to go over sizes again so I can show Dr. Robey what I want & what I don't want. My weight is still at a standstill & it is so frustrating. I have been working out about three to four days a week. I know that's not a lot, but I don't have a lot of free time. I run a home based day care & I have kids from 5AM -6PM & my boys have sports from 5-7:30. By the time we get home they have to do homework, shower, eat dinner & go to bed & then I have to clean the house, catch up on laundry, clean up from dinner, shower & pour myself into bed. I am so completely exhausted by the end of the day that I don't have much energy to exercise around midnight when I have to get back up at 4:30. I am super excited to have some time off of work for my surgery, even if I am in pain. As of Saturday the 6th it will be exactly one month till my surgery. Can't freaking wait!!!!!!!!!!!
Spoke to my plastic surgeon today over the phone!
So I didn't go to my appointment the Saturday I was supposed to. My youngest son was sick & I didn't want to bring him there with him being so cranky. I spoke with Helen, not sure what her official job title is, but she answers phones, schedules surgeries & appointments, sends emails so she's the secretary I guess? Anyhow she was super understanding & said she could arrange a phone call so I could avoid a trip there just to talk to her again with them being three hours from me. I was able to speak with my doctor this morning & I am actually starting to get a bit of boob greed with my sugary being twenty days away as of today. I am actually leaning toward a bigger size. The only thing I'm concerned with is that if I go with a bigger size than 435 that once I lose the rest of my weight I may not look proportionate. I think I will just stick with 435. I can always go bigger in the future if I'm not satisfied with them now, but if I go too big I will end up needing a lift or something in the future if I go with a smaller size. Kinda like when you're wanting to cut your hair, your stylist always says do a little at a time! Now I can see why! So the official implant for me is the Sientra 435cc textured round gummy silicone under the muscle. I felt so at ease after talking to Dr. Robey today. I completely trust her opinion & I know I'm in good hands! I got my information on my implants today & also my pre-op instructions for my boobs & my ears. It's finally starting to seem real now!! I will post a few pics of what has give me boob greed these days. Counting down the days!!!!!!!
Waiting to be marked on & taken back!
FINALLY DID IT!!
So sorry for the delay in posting my update ladies. I have had multiple surgeries (BIG incisions, five to be exact) & the pain from all of those were nothing compared to the pain I experienced from breast augmentation. Also I have never had any complications from anesthesia & I honestly vomited for four days straight. I couldn't even keep my pain meds down. I tried everything in the world to calm my stomach, but nothing worked. I was completely miserable for four days. So anyhow....I checked in at 7:30, waited about fifteen minutes & then went back to my room & had to take EVERYTHING off & put on a gown. I brought my own socks to avoid those uncomfortable & ugly hospital socks & then they added compression socks. Shortly after my IV was started & I was asked to use to the bathroom. The anasthesiologist came in to introduce himself & explained what he would do after asking me several questions regarding medical history. Then my PS came in & drew on me & then about twenty minutes later I was wheeled back to surgery. I scooted over to the surgery table & was given something to make me relax & then told them that I went skydiving Labor Day weekend so I shouldn't be nervous, but I still was & then I was out! Surgery lasted about 3.5 hours since I had my boobs & ears done both. I stayed in recovery for about two hours & then was released. The drive home was nothing short of a nightmare as we live three hours from my plastic surgeon. It is super difficult to get comfortable when you're a tummy sleeper & can't sleep on your belly or even your side & then your ears are throbbing & aching on top of it. It's awful! I have been very tired, but have had a lot of family helping me & feel very blessed & fortunate to have so many people taking such excellent care of me. I am healing very well & I'm off all meds except for ibuprofen I was prescribed almost a year ago for strep throat & I take tramadol at night time (a painkiller/sleep aid) which seems to help slightly, but not a ton. I went 435 round high profile textures Sientra implants & I am head over heels in love with them. They look absolutely amazing! I wanted a full C/small D. I went into Victoria's Secret a few days ago to get measured because I wanted one of their new front zip up sports bras. They measured me at a 34DD, but she said one they drop they may end up being a DDD! I was in complete shock! If I lose weight I will end up being around a 32DD. Either way I am completely satisfied. My ears are healing really well, tender & numb oddly, but they feel & look great! Also forgot to add that I got my one inverted nipple corrected & that looks amazing! Was slightly raw, starting to scab over now, but it's healing very well! Even with all of the pain associated with the first four days I would do it again & again every time. It is worth every bit of pain. My confidence level is through the roof & I feel great!! I will post pics throughout the week as we are headed to Destin, FL as we speak for vacation. Happy healing ladies!!??
So far I really like my PS. She is really friendly & answered all of my questions patiently. I had to bring my three boys with me at the last minute & she was patient & understanding.
