540cc's The Right Size For Me and I Couldn't Have Picked a Better Doctor For The Job - Chicago, IL

my experience was absolutely outstanding. i had my breast augmentation done yesterday 3/6/2012 with dr.wiener at the art of plastic surgery and i must say the experience i had from the day i walked in to the time i left yesterday was amazing. the whole staff made me feel so comfortable.its like i had none them for a while, especially priscilla she the patient coordinator there and nurse caroline, they were great. i give thanx to the whole staff. the doctor was great from the time i met him he was very friendly and just reassured me of my procedure. he took his time and spend alot of time answering my questions becuase i had alot of questions..lol the day of surgury i was very nervouse when i got there but as soon as i seen nurse caroline and started talking to her she was nice and calmed my nerves then the anesthesiologist came in and reassured me that everything was going to be fine and she also spend some time talking to me which calmed my nerves.

the doc came in minutes later took some pix and made some marks and discussed my cc's and we were on our way to the operation room. even there i still felt very at ez. so they put me to sleep and when i woke up nurse caroline was there and it was nice to see her because she had this big smile on her face and the first thing she said was they look great,everything came out very good. then dr,wiener came in and said that everything had came out very good and i just remember saying to him' dr. i feel like u came in here and jumped on my chest a couple times..lol so then the nurse helped me get dressed and put me in a wheel chair and priscilla offered to take me down, she said she wanted to which was really nice :) on the way down she said that my breast looked great and that she was sure i was going to be happy with them.

i ended up getting 540cc's altho i cant see them right now because there bandaged up from what i can see from on top i already like them. i wanted the full look on the bottom but not to round on top, the most natural look as possible. excited to go back and see the staff and all this bandages off tomorrow.

Today is my postop appoinment. Im so excited to she my new boobies cant wait to take the bandages of. Im still feeling very tired and groogy, its the pain pump and vicodin. Feel sore and my right Side feels tighter then my left. Not to much pain just pressure and comfrotable due to the swelling and wires from pain pump and bandages. Im hoping i start feeling better thru out the day once im out thehouse and getsome freash air. I will b posting my before and after pix later once this bandages come of..

My appoinment went great like expected..LOL im...

My appoinment went great like expected..LOL im feeling good today. Bandages came of and i was able to c my new BOOBS for the first time. I am very pleased with my results,its crazy the fact that i cant she the incisions on my nipple where the implant went thru. That just proves that my doc is the bestest..LOL i cant wait for my BOOBS to DROP, if im in love with them now i can only imagine WHAT there going to look like :)

Its day 4 for me and i cant sleep. don't know if...

its day 4 for me and i cant sleep. don't know if its the medicine but i haven't been able to sleep for more then 4 hours at a time. I'm feeling pretty good tho as far as my breast are concerned. haven't had any pain or not really sore at all only feel tight when i touch them or when i massage them. kinda feels like a burning sensation when i start massaging them and push them down but that's about all the discomfort I'm experiencing now. not taking to much pain medicine anymore only antibiotics so that's a good thing maybe ill be a able to sleep thru the night tonight and use the bathroom..lol yes i know i know to much info but i think its the medication I'm on has be very backed up, so I'm taking laxatives maybe it will help :) Ive been resting allot this past few days not to much arm movement but when i do lift my arms it doesn't feel bad,i was expected to be in a lot of pain for days.cant wait for my boobies to start feeling soft and actually start moving down ;) haven't tried on any cloths yet,Ive been wearing nothing but zip-ups, but cant wait to actually put on a tight tank top and see how it looks. maybe ill do that next weekend ;)

So its the end of day 5 and my boobs feel allot...

so its the end of day 5 and my boobs feel allot more relaxed now then they did when i woke up this morning. i have been massaging them often today.still swollen but they dont feel as tight. not really in any pain only some discomfort when im laying down or sitting and i stand that's when they hurt a little bit but besides that its all good :) I'm still taking pain medication Ive switched to extra strength Tylenol and that's pretty good. Ive been somewhat active today went for 2 walks instead of 1. still feeling kind of drained at times but im sure that's normal.i have lots of help around the house so i take advantage of that and not over do it. im sure my body thanx me for all the rest im giving it..lol

1week post op..bruises are starting to fade so not really a concern. Im feeling good almost back to feeling normal, still feel lazy and tired"i guess that is normal..lol j/k really no pain except when i go to stand after sitting or laying down. the massages are getting bearable,that's the most pain Ive felt thru out this whole experience is massaging the boobies because the Dr. said to put some pressure and massage them down, sooo yea after a week its a little better.I'm not working at the moment so i don't have to worry about going to work so Im happy about that. the thing i am wanting to do but cant is go to the gym so for now Ive been walking in the park... still taking pain meds Tylenol extra strength.

Went out and bought a Bali support bra Itoday.I just put it on and i must say it is super comfy. I Really like it becuase it gives me side support t So when I lay down my girls have support and don't go to the sides. Tomorrrow my Dr.appointment and can't wait to see WHAT the Dr. Has to say about my progress

its day 11 and my boobs r coming along nicely, my right however is taking its sweet time..lol it still sits a little higher then my left and still feels a little more sore,but i know its only been 11days so i still have ways to go before i can c a major difference. i guess when we think about getting implants we think we're gonna walk into surgery and walk out with perfect looking boobs. but thats not the case and we know this.still cant help be paranoid about them sitting and staying that way or looking like torpedoes..lol or even 1 looking bigger then the other. it can get a little depressing but as time goes by they do start to look different and they will drop so i snap out of it. but Im sure allot of woman share these same feeling within the first couple weeks of augmentation. don't get me wrong i absolutely love my boobies i think they are looking very nice. i just tend to be very impatient at times ;) i posted up 2 new pix of my day 11

DAY 16; BREAST STILL HIGH BUT HAVE DROPPED A LITTLE AND ARE GETTING SOFTER, I MASSAGE THEM ALOT. THEY STILL FEEL A LITTLE PAINFUL AND SORE BUT NOT TO BAD, IVE BEEN OF PAIN MEDS FOR ABOUT 3-4 DAYS, I MIGHT TAKE 1 TYLENOL AT TIMES IF I FEEL THE NEED TO, BUT NOT REALLY. SOMETIMES THEY GET THIS TINGLY FEELING AND THEY GET HARD,KINDA FEEL STIFF AT TIMES BUT IM SURE THAT'S THE NERVES. SENSATION IN MY NIPPLES SLOWING COMING AROUND,MORE SENSATION IN MY RIGHT. THE LEFT DOESN'T HAVE MUCH SENSATION ACCEPT AT TIMES WHEN I MASSAGE THEM. MY RIGHT BREAST STILL FEELS TIGHTER AND HIGHER A LITTLE MORE PAINFUL THEN MY LEFT. MY BREAST HAD A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF SWELLING UNDER THE BREAST RIGHT UNDER THE NIPPLE WHERE THE INCISIONS WERE MADE THEY FELT VERY HARD AND PAINFUL TO THE TOUCH, ON DAY 13 I NOTICED THE SWELLING HAD GONE DOWN ALLOT AND THEY DON'T HURT AS MUCH. I GUESS I WAS STARTING TO GET A LITTLE NERVOUS BECAUSE I KEPT READING ABOUT HOW ALL THESE LADIES WERE FEELING GREAT,NOT REALLY COMPLAINING ABOUT ANYTHING 2WEEKS POST OP AND HERE I AM WITH MY BOOBIES STILL SOMEWHAT SWOLLEN AND A LITTLE BRUISED AND SORE..LOL BUT EVERYBODY'S DIFFERENT WE ALL HEAL DIFFERENTLY. MY BODY IS TAKING ITS TIME BUT ITS DOING GOOD

so its day 24 and the boobs have dropped some. i massage every chance i get.they still feel a little hard at times they feel like they tighten up and get hard and stiff,when that happens i think its my muscles getting used to the implant,so i massage and it feels better. the worst is getting up in the mornings.im able to sleep on my side but when i get up o they hurt for a few seconds then i massage them and it goes away.some sensation in the right nipple not much in the left, altho when i massage them i do feel some sensation in the left when i press down on it so im sure in time they'll feel back to normal. im so happy i went with 540cc and that i finally decided to have this done. my boobs are coming along nicely and im finally getting used to them.at first they looked weird and very high but as time goes by they are looking more natural. still not sure what bra size i am but plan on going bra shopping sometime soon. i think i will let them settle a little more ;)

Thanks for the info on how to load more pics ill ck it out. Realself put up my 8 week pics last night. Yes we all get scar tissue around the implant, just sometimes the body goes overboard and makes too much causing hardness or pain. What kind of massage are you doing? I forgot u are still fresh post op!! I dont know what size I am yet, i went to Macys and they didnt have anything that fit cuz 32 DDD was too small, i cant believe that! Im gonna go to Nordtroms this weekend cux i called and they have a big selection of larger cup sizes. And thanks for the compliment. Those corsets are hot, do u wear them in public? what do u wear with them if u do? Have yours dropped any more yet? they r looking so good so soon you are one of the lucky ones!!

Hi, sorry to take so long. Im doing good, a little upset cuz I just found out the new doctor didnt remove the CC capsule on the right side. From what I have read this raises my chances even higher for it to return. She said she needed the tissue to support the implant so maybe shes right but im worried. How r u? That corset is beautiful and I love the color!! Have u gone bra shopping yet? I did and nothing fit!! I tried Macys, VS and Fredericks and all too small. Off to Norsdtoms next weekend!!
