I feel compelled to write a review after how...
I have always been small chested. After having my first child and breastfeeding for 6 months, these puppies are now a size smaller and deflated. I went from having confidence about my body to having none in a 34 saggy A cup. Bathing suits and lingerie are frustrating, taking my shirt off in front of my husband is a thing of the past...I now walk around our bedroom with my arm over them. He has bigger boobs (pecks) than me! NOT OKAY with that :( He knows how badly I want this and is in full support mode. Although he tells me all the time he is more than ok with me the way I am. So, I'm not doing this for him. It is all for me! :)
I have been to 3 different surgeons for multiple consultations. The first I just wasn't really "feeling" him, lol. His price was in the right range, but I was looking to bond with my surgeon. The second was a complete disaster. He kept telling me how he liked "his" girls and "his" boobs to look. And then 2 of his assistants came in, lifted their shirts, started feeling on their implants and had me do the same. So unprofessional. Even though I felt as I should have tipped those assistants, atleast I knew what I didn't want to look like. His price was also really low. The third and final surgeon was great! She spent more than enough time with me listening to my wants, measuring me and trying on sizers. The two other surgeons did none of this! They told me what they wanted to see me look like and what they were going to do to me. Instead of treating like a mannequin, Dr Sylora was thorough, gave me adequate time to think about the things she was telling me so I could ask questions and she could answer them and unltimately made me feel like I'm going to finally have my dream boobs! It goes to show, getting more than one consult is CRUCIAL. Now I know when I leave there this coming Tuesday (March 11th) I will have the look I so badly desire (after the healing ofc :) )
I liked the size of the 400 and 425cc HP silicone. I might be going with the 450cc since you lose 25-50cc when going submuscular. This is to be decided day of in surgery. Dr Sylora and her assistant know what I want to look like and will make the call in the surgery room.
So, I have had my surgical clearance from my general physician. Gathered all my meds from the pharmacy. Have arranged babysitters. I'm in the process of making meals to freeze for the fam while I'm down for the count. And this weekend I plan on a cleaning frenzy so I don't have to worry about that for atleast 2 weeks (hopefully :) )
One more day til surgery!
One whole day stands between me and my boobs! I joked to my hubby with "springing" forward I'm an hour closer today! haha. I cleaned the house from top to bottom yesterday. That was the largest task and is now crossed off the list! Tomorrow after my morning workout I will be making a large pot of chicken noodle soup to have ready for when I get home from surgery and will need nourishment without having anything too heavy. Jello is also on the list to make.
Tomorrow is the BIG day! no pun intended ;P
I made 2 big pots of chicken noodle soup. 2 things of jello. Did one last clean sweep of the house, mopped the floors and washed my sheets. Although I just realized I'll be sleeping in the recliner so I won't need those clean sheets, lol, you're welcome hubs :)
Surgery is scheduled for 1:30pm tomorrow afternoon. Super SUPER excited!
Thank you all for the good wishes, I do appreciate every one of you!
I hope to write tomorrow evening when I get home and comfortable.
Home from surgery!
My 21 month old keeps saying mommy sick mommy sick, lol She is sitting at the end of my recliner with me. I currently have 2 bags of frozen peas atop the new additions!
Not gonna lie, I am in pain. It feels like I over achieved by 100% on a chest workout.
I immediately threw up when I got home. Felt better after that so I had some chicken noodle soup...not as much as I normally would eat...prob like 6 spoonfuls. Then finished with jello.
They sent me home in a hospital gown and a very nice robe, so I'm still in that. Haven't taken a look at the girls except from the top.
I love these things!
I am so excited for what these babies will look like in 3, 6, even 12 months. I think I might play with them more than hubs! Surely, he will be ok with that :)
Day 2 was SO much better than Day 1
Today I did some laundry, saw my daughter for a little bit and was able to piggy back carry her, you're gonna think I'm crazy, but I did have help putting together a piece of bathroom furniture that got delivered today. I was too anxious to wait for hubby to get home. I kept thinking, I will pay for this later tonight in the form of intense pain, but nothing so far! Fingers crossed :)
Each day that passes I know will only be better and better. I'm so happy I went through with this. Life changing!
Here are pics from Day 2. Enjoy ;P
Loving the progress :)
Since day 3 I haven't needed the hydro, just 600mg of ibuprofen morning and night. Today I was going to try no ibuprofen, but we had his moms bday get together to attend and all the hugging and cooking forced me to take 600mg when I got home. Surprisingly, I can do most things. It's the little things that bother me...the pumps on my shampoo and conditioner bottles, opening the dishwasher, heavy doors, closing the trunk of my suv. I've tested lifting things here and there (starting small ofc) and have had no pain...seems that I can concentrate lifting with my bicep and be ok. Pushing movements are what get to me.
Very thankful for the help I've had around the house for the past 5 days. I probably wouldn't be recovering as quickly as I am if it weren't for that.
-Realized I hadn't taken a pic of the "underboob", so here's that with the tape over the incisions :)
Living the good life!
I am 12 days post op and feeling great! My 10 day post op was this past week and all is healing perfectly. The last time I took the ibuprofen was Wednesday. I could have stopped Monday, but Tuesday and Wednesday I was asked to sub teach at the dance studio (taught for 5 years prior to my daughter) so since I was feeling good and could use some extra cash, I said yes. I was hurting a bit under my arms (armpit area) after those 2 nights of teaching, but felt back to normal after getting Thursday to recover. Friday I took my almost 2 yr old, our german exchange student and 2 of her friends to the beach along with our neighbors. I had no problem being out of the surgical bra and in a swimsuit. The stitches were covered and stayed unbothered. And then Saturday we were at a convention (megacon, if any of you are familiar with it). My daughter and I dressed up as hello kitty- it was so fun. Being in the swim top all day and then in a normal bra all day I was ready to have them back in the surgical bra today. I think it was my muscles that were alittle sore from having to hold the weight instead of the surgical bra doing all the work. But, man did they look great out and about!
So, here are some photos taken today. Enjoy :)
Almost a month post op
Tomorrow is my first day back at the gym and I can't wait! I'll be going back to my weights class first, using small weights and starting next week I should be able to start my aerobics class.
2 months in!
I am loving life with my new boobies. I can take on anything! I get alot of lookers and alot of haters LOL. BUUUT, such is life and I can't waste my time worrying about others! I am still SO PLEASED with my results and wouldn't go back on a THING! I feel so much more proportionate, that alone is just incredible.
To update where I am with the numbness from my last post....it is gradually coming back. Both nipples are starting to work in unison when they get cold/hard lol. Sometimes not, but I think that will only continue to get better.
I see my surgeon next week for another post op. I am going to ask her about flexing my chest muscles and if I should be doing it. They look rather strange when I do...it weirds me out! I look deformed. Let's just say I'm glad I don't work out naked, lol. Since I am still numb underneath, I don't feel my chest muscles working (while working out), so I'm not sure how far or how little I should be taking them. I don't hurt, so that could be good and bad.
Anyway, will update again soon
A 6 month update!!!!
Talking more in depth about my girls.... they have fully dropped and fluffed oh so nicely. I am still SO HAPPY with them. My scars are a light shade of pink. I do not have full feeling back in both nipples. This is ok with me. They operate like real ones, feel like real ones, bounce like real ones...I mean really, I can't imagine myself any other way anymore. I'd do it again and encourage everyone out there on the fence, to take the jump!
Enjoy and thanks for stopping back by :)
Bra Size Update
Dr. Sylora is very professional and has a superb bedside manner. She is calm and straight forward, giving you real results to see of her other patients. You can tell she has plenty experience placing all different types of implants. She doesn't try and sway you one way or the other. Honest and trustworthy! In my opinion, bedside manner is what makes or breaks a doctor. She soars above the rest!
