Finally Decided and Now I Am 30 Days Away from Getting my New Girls :-) - Guyaquil, Ecuador

Hello, I am 36 year old mom of 1. My son is now 10 1/2 and I finally decided to take leap. I am 5'2 140lbs. I am still working on my weight however I do not want to put the surgery off any longer. My girlfriend had her surgery done in Ecuador by a PS who is known throughout Latin America and also a close friend of her family. I have done my own research and her credentials are impecable. I am currently a very small 34 B overall, however my one breast is barely an A. This is what has bothered me the most. I have always had one breast smaller than the other, however as I have been loosing weight it seems to have gotten smaller to the point where is it visable if I do not wear a padded bra. I have also decided to have abdominal lipo done to get rid of the"pouch" and muffin top. I think I am more concerned about the recovery of the lipo than of the BA.... I will be in Ecuador for 2 weeks as the doctor wants to do all the initial post op, which gives me a certain level of comfort. I am looking at this as my little sabatical. I will travel to EC by myself and will stay in a suite onsite for teh 2 weeks. I will post before and after pics after the surgey. Wish me luck.

Ok, it's 24 days before my surgery exactly 3 weeks before I leave. I am definately nervous and it is showing. I am a worry wart by nature...my little guy asked me today if everything was ok. Poor little guy. I told him that I was going to be traveling for 2 weeks in April (I travel for work so it's not out of the norm), however I have not told him that I was having elective surgery. Unfortunately, one of the things he got from my is the worry wart gene, so I am going to spare him as long as I can. I am going through the roller coaster of being excited and questioning what I am doing. My sister is super suportive and my fiancee supports me however I think he too is concerned and my mother, forget it, she is happy for me but is so worried that it's hard to talk to her about it. Her biggest concern is that I am going by myself and she wont be there to take care of me. My thought is if I am "chosing" to do this, then I need to not have to inconvenience anyone with my care.

The countdown continues...

So we have just pushed up my surgery date to March 30th, I leave for Ecuador on March 28th. I am so excited!

I am 13 days away from my surgery 11 days from the day that I leave for Ecuador and I am wondering what I should be doing? What do I need to have with me? Since I have a gluten allergy and I don't know if there will be gluten free products there, I know I need to bring with me 2 weeks worth of snacks. As for clothes I have no clue what to pack. I know none of the bras I have will fit, I am going to have to buy them there. I was told that I should wear button down shirts for a while. Do I really have to? I don't own a lot of "casual" button downs which means I would have to buy them. Pj's I do figure I should have comfy ones and probably those should be button down, but I am having a hard time finding them. I travel for work an typically it's quite easy to pack, I am really have a hard time packing or this trip. Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Ok, so I am going to try this again. I have submitted updates, however for some reason they are not being posted.

I had my surgery on Friday, March 30th. Th BA looks and feels pretty good so far. I have my post op appointment tomorrow and the bandages will be taken off then. From what I can see so far, I absolutely love them! I got Brasil Silimed 305's...not sure how many cc's that is, but it definately is a significant change from my former A/B cup size. I had been feeling pretty good. Today I have some burning in my left breast and a pulling sensation. I will let the doctor know tomorrow. As for the lipo, well, that's a different story. I was not prepared for the pain and discomfort that this procedure entailed. The water retention is incredible, painful and uncomfortable. Also have to wear the compression piece is uncomfortable. Since I had lipo done on my love handles, upper and lower abdomen, the piece I have to wear looks like a bathing suit from the 30s which goes down to my knees almost.

I will be posting my pics after tomorrow when I get the bandages off. Overall I have to say, I am extremely happy with the BA surgery. Still on the fence with the lipo only because of the pain and discomfort. The results so far are pretty good, however I think the gym should have been my route. Ha! Ha!

Post op day 23
My breast are sore but are getting there. As you can see they are not identical, however they are bigger now and the difference is less noticeable. I can not upload the before pictures because I put them in a secure program on my phone and now I can not get them out! Anyway, they are coming along. The lipo on the other hand has me extrememly concerned. I am in a lot of pain, burning, tender and tearing sensation. Waiting to hear back from my PS to see if this is normal.
