Breast Augmentation- Silicon Implants (below muscle); under breast incision.
Background- I decided on breast augmentation for two reasons. First, my breasts have always been asymmetrical (about a cup size difference). Second, I breastfed three kids so needless to say, my breasts were deflated.


I was about a B cup before the procedure (right a little smaller and left a little bigger). Not sure the exact cc's that my doctor ended up putting in. I will know after my pre-op appointment Tuesday (he was going to experiment with 302-390 cc's).
I'm 5'3.25" and 130 pounds.

Day 1 (1/17/13-TODAY!): My surgery was at 7:30am this morning. (6 hours ago). I was scared to death this morning but have been pleasantly surprised. Was a little nauseous for a couple of hours. The pain is minimal. From what I can see , my breasts look great!

I will continue to update as the days progress.

Day 2-
Everything is continuing to go well. I was nauseous yesterday afternoon and ended up getting sick. After that, though I felt much better and cut back on my pain meds to lessen the nausea.
Last night, I slept as well as I could propped up on my back (I am a stomach/side sleeper).
Today I'm bored! Went outside on a slow walk for about an hour. My pain is minimal. My chest feels tight and swollen.

Day 3-
I am down to 1/4 dose of painkillers. Went to my gym today and walked the indoor track for 30 minutes. I hate sleeping on my back. it makes my back sore. Looking forward to side sleeping again. I'm bored! :)

Day 5- had my post op today. Found out I had 300 cc's put in my left breast and 372 cc's in my right. The profiles were different too. My bandages were removed and I'm off the pain meds and muscle relaxers. Starting to feel normal. Ready to sleep on my side but the doctor said a few more days elevated. I've uploaded pics.
