I have wanted a BA for a very long time. I've always been about a "B" cup until I was pregnant. My breasts did get bigger, but then after breast feeding they shrunk a little. Now, they have lost alot of tissue in the upper part of my breasts. I have always wanted to be bigger up there and finally decided to do it.
So, I have now scheduled my pre-op and surgery appts, and as it nears, I keep having second thoughts and worries. Should I go through with this? Do the pros outweigh the cons? Please help..
So, the time is getting closer... and I am getting...

I am so excited, but I'm nervous at the same time. I'm afraid I'll be too big, too small, too high, too swollen... LOL I have a mix of emotions.
I am very happy that I found this site, though, as it is a huge source of information and insight from other women. I have found a lot of comfort in reading other stories on here.
I will add some before pictures later, and I will update again after my pre-op. Yay!!!
Went to my pre-op a couple days ago and everything...

Surgery is scheduled for the 28th, but I might push it up a week, if possible. Unfortunately, there's an issue with my transportation home for the 28th. :( I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't lose as much weight as I anticipated before the surgery... However, I'm hoping that I can get back in the gym pretty soon after. Hopefully it won't be more difficult once I have the implants.
I've updated my deflated before pictures... lol!! Looking forward to the new me!!!
I spoke to the Dr. office yesterday and they were...

And wouldn't you know it... I woke up this morning with a cold that I caught from one of my children!! AHHHHH!!! Can they do the surgery if I'm sick?? I don't even think I can take any meds now. I hope I feel better by then. :(
OMG! So, tomorrow is the day!! I'm scared to...

Surgery is scheduled for 7am, have to be there at 6am. I still have my sinus issue/cold going on, so I'm not sure if they are going to reschedule once I get in there. Going to pick up my meds later today. I really hope everything turns out the way I'm imagining and that recovery is a cake walk. Wish me luck! ;)
Well, my surgery apparently went well (I'm here). ...

There is so much pressure and tightening on my chest, it feels like there's an elephant sitting there. It is also difficult to breathe, especially when I'm moving around. Not sure if that's because we went under the muscle or maybe it's normal. However, I've noticed that today is slightly less pressure than yesterday. I'm imagining that each day will get better.
I have not looked at my breasts yet. Honestly, I'm afraid. I know that they are probably very swollen. I've looked down my blouse, and from what I can see, they look good. LOL However, tomorrow I get to take a shower and go to my post-op appointment, so I will definitely see what they look like then.
I will post pics soon!!! ;)
2 Days Post-op. Still in pain, but moving around...

Went to my post-op appt a little while ago. Dr. showed me how to massage my new boobs. Boy, does that suck when they are swollen and painful!!! How am I going to do this? Was able to take a shower this morning and take off my bandages. It is definitely a great feeling to be clean again. lol
Here's some of my new pics. Looking forward for the swelling to go down and for them to drop. They look pretty high right now. Will take more pics in a week or so.
It's been 5 days since my surgery, and I'm still...

My incision looks pretty darn good. Not as big as I expected. Looks like it's healing very nicely. They gave me some scar cream to use and some tape to cover the incision for a few weeks. (Well, I should say that I bought the scar cream. WTH! After a hefty PS bill, you couldn't give me a $63.00 bottle of scar cream?!!) LOL!
I'm feeling much better and almost feeling normal again. Except for the weird feeling in my right boob when I bend down or turn a certain way (I hate that feeling). My right side is still bruised a little also. I still can't sleep on my side, which I love doing. Not sure how long before I will be able to. Probably a while.
Can't wait to go bra shopping this weekend. Although the sports bra is comfy, I can't wear it under all my cute shirts. hahah!!!
I posted a couple more pics. ;)
