I was going to have a MM on 4/6 but changed it to a BA only. It was the right choice for me right now. I am the mother of two wonderful boys (6 & 4). I am 5'6" 117lbs with a 34 barely A cup. I am going with 350cc silicon unders. I have my other review in the MM section but decided to put one in the BA section. I am nervous. I am worried about being too big after. Right now I am walking around with a little less than 1 & 1/2 cups of rice in my bra to see (kind of) what I'll look like after the BA. I feel ridiculous! I do have to say the I like how I look in my shirt right now!!
Ooohhhh boy! Two more days! Yikes! I love my...

I love my PS office. Any time I have a question they are so helpful. The consultant is wonderful! She makes me feel so at ease.
Added some pictures of me before my BA tomorrow. ...

Also, I am feeling a little uncertain that this is something I should do. From other posts I know that this is normal. I just think about the possible risks and having to have the implants replaced in the future.
Excited and nervous!!!!!
I did it! My surgery started around 11:30 and my...

Hooray for boobs!
I did go with Mentor Smooth round high profile gel implants, 350cc under muscle. The PS used the Keller Funnel so my incision is only about 1 inch long under the fold of my breast. I am please with everything do far.
I want to say all sortsnofmsilly things like: I HAVE BOOBS. Boobies, boobies, boobies!!! ;).
I will post pictures soon.
Ummm...since my surgery was on the 6th, i guess...

I am only taking Tylenol during the day as needed and then I take hydrocodone at night to help me sleep. My chest is tight and a little uncomfortable. I really have no big pain complaints. I am someone that can't sit still and I feel like I always need to be doing something...so that may be the hardest part for me. My breasts are high and hard and I really look forward to having them soften up and settle.
At my post op appointment yesterday the nurse put my in a special bra and wrapped a band around the top portion of my breasts to help press them down. The elastic band just provides constant pressure on the top part of the implants to promote settling. The nurse told me that I can start massaging my breasts on Monday night. I should have my second post op appointment on Wednesday or Friday. I will meet with my PS then.
So far I am really happy with my new boobs. I tried on some of my shirts this morning and the look so much better with boobs...So much better than just loose and blah!
I was really nervous going into this whole thing and I know now that it was kind of silly. There really isn't anything you can do to stop all the crazy thoughts going through your head before the surgery. Just know that once it's all done, focus on getting better.
I will have my husband take some pictures of me so I can post later.
And....I am so happy I went with the Keller Funnel. My incision is very small. :)
Day 3 post op: I am a bit of a control freak so...

The main thing right now is I have to try really hard to be patient. I would love for my breasts to settle because they are so high right now. I will try to post a pic soon.
I am now post op day 5 and met with my PS. He...

I have great feelings about my PS...out of the 4 surgeons in the group all the women I've dealt with at the office have used the surgeon that did my BA. I think that says a lot about him!
Also, I drove yesterday and I will be leaving to get my boys from school in a little bit. I am taking it nice and slow....but it is doable! ;)
I just put up a new picture of me...6 days post op...

My only complaint is that the steri strips on my incisions itch really bad!! Hopefully they come off on Wednesday.
I ended up taking the steri strips off on Tuesday....

My PS is awesome and he feels really bad that I'm going through this little set back. It's not his fault I developed a reaction to the steri strip glue. I will say that it does suck...a lot. My incision and all around it is VERY red and extrememly itchy. My PS gave me a prescription for a topical medication...and I've been taking an antihistamine at night to get rid of the rash.
Other than the rash my breasts are looking really good and feel great!
On Saturday (15 days post op) I was perscribed a...

I saw the doctor today and he said in addition to my allergic reaction to the glue from the steri strips...it appears that I also had a reaction to the cleansing agent the surgery center uses to prep patients for surgery. It's a very common ingredient found in surgical cleansers. Chlorhexidine. A reaction to this is not very common though...he said. Lucky me!! ;)
When he told me that...I did a mental head slap! I bought HIBICLENS to use pre surgery as my antiseptic antimicrobial skin cleanser. Guess what Hibiclens is made with...chlorhexidine. When I first realized I was having a reaction to the glue I used the Hibiclens to clean the my incisions because the rash was weeping...and I thought using the cleanser would be the best thing to get the glue off. Little did I know, I was only making things worse for myself. The topical cream my doctor gave did help a ton to heal up the incision sight, but know the rash was all over my upper body!! On Saturday I called the on call nurse and they got me a steroid pack perscription right away.
So now I am half way through the steroid pack and my rash doesn't make me want to take my skin off any more!!!!
Terrible story...a yucky set back. BUT...I will be good as new soon and will update with pictures next time! I really do think my breasts are looking better every day (minus the rash)!
I finished my steriod pack today for my rash! ...

Super happy with everything!
PS Consultant was AMAZING! She made me feel soooo comfortable. The PS has a nurse available to answer questions all the time. The PS was very friendly and professional. His work on previous patients showed me that he is one of the best in the area. VERY clean surgery center.
