I got my 1st set of iplants in 1999 and I have needed to have a revision since i had a car wreck in august 2011. The seatbelt caused the capsule around my left breast to rupture. I had 425cc saline filled to 475cc and changed to 800cc hp silicone. The revision wasnt as bad as the original surgery but i am having some pain.

this is a another before pic

I didnt want to post this pic because it looks awful. It is a bad angle but tjen i thought it would really help to see the difference.

Normal?

Today is the first day I've done hair and makeup and the whole dang thing. Had to go to senior daughters summer cheer luncheon. Feel better but by the end of the day I felt like I had run a marathon.

Feeling pretty good. But with that comes the " i feel goid so i can be superwoman" then you wake up the next day and remember you had surgery and are in pain!!!!!

follow up

18 days post op. Most of the swelling is gone now and as you previous ba girls know its sometimes sad. I still like the size just wish they had stayed a bit fuller.

3 weeks post op

sad

Even tho im a 2nd time BA girl. You just dont ever get used to the swelling going away.

infection

Went to dr this morning. I got small hole on incision line on the outside of my right breast Friday. They told me antibiotic cream and guaze 2x daily. That's fine. Then on Saturday night my left breast started swelling and hurting. By Sunday mid afternoon i was in serious pain and running a 102.5 temp. Called dr and he called in levaquin and pain pills. Went and saw him this morning. He looked at the right breast at the hole. Betadined it, stuck the qtip in hole and sqeezed out any goo. Then finally numbed me and put 2 stitches in it. Its good and no sign of infection. Then He sqeezed the hell out of my boob that was already hurting so bad.Prescribed bactrim and if no improvement by morning he has to explant it.

Forgot to say he added bactrim today too.

think we saved the boobie!!!!!!

I had to go to the dr every day this past week. By tuesday i was responding a little to the antibiotics and i wanted to at least give the levaquin 3 days to work or not. I went to dr Wednesday still red but less still swollen but less but very painful. My temp.was hanging in at about 101. Went Thursday redness and swelling have lessened fever around 100. Went friday all signs of redness are gone, alot of the swelling is gone and fever is 99!!!! He prescribed 1 more week of levaquin and hopefull all will be good. He did tell me yesterday that on Monday he really didn't think we were going to be able to save the implant. He told me that if i hadnt called him on sunday and started my antibiotics on sunday night it would have been so bad by monday morning that it would have had to come out for sure. Guess its good to be paranoid every once in a while.

That's a better attitude! Give yerself a lil credit yer HOT ;) I'm so with you on the real bra thing! I mean I love wearing a workout top or sports bra IF I'm goin to the gym! But hate the fact that I'll have to live in them for awhile and not be able to even workout! Revis did say I should get the ok to wear a push-up bra after my my next app on Sept 9th. Just wanna have more options cuz hard to wear a sexy low cut top with them sport bras. I do have some of the genie bras too but I feel like these are so big and heavy they need more support so yes I know how it is lol!

Awe sorry to hear yer feeling sad but it's not like you could have gone bigger anyways, right? I'm hoping I don't feel that way down the road too. I'd really hate to think about saline after having silicone both times now. I just can't wait to try things on but don't wanna make mine start hurting or swelling in the process. Yers still look great so be try to be happy! Be sure and tell me the same if needed ;) XXXXX

Some insurance companies will cover all or at least part of surgury when you are involved in a wreck etc. If you have insurance it is definitely worth checking with them.
