I have posted before regarding my concerns on sizing! I am now going in tomorrow and have decided on 425 gummy bear silicone under the muscle! I am very nervous I can barely eat!
I am scared ill end up looking like a bimbo! Spent my whole early life as a gymnast was flat as a board then I got a bit chunky! I'm 5'3(ish) was 150lbs and had boobs finally! Then I lost 25lbs and my boobs went too! I have wanted this since I was 16 as I always hated the shape and look of them! Found out during consultation i have a mild case of "tubular breast deformity" I tried on sizers twice to really make my decision!
Still just in panic mode as I keep reading how some people have healed poorly or have a hard time working out... I am a gym rat! The thought of 6 weeks off devastates me!
I hope that's not the case for me and I heal just fine! I am just both apprehensive and excited that I will finally feel like a woman!
Well here I am 1 day post op! Pain isn't...

The surgery went so fast just under 1.5 hours I was pretty sedated so dont remember much! But my doctor was wonderful the whole time! All the staff were! I would highly recommend them!!
Left side is more swollen than right but the homeade ice packs of dishsoaps work amazingly!
My boyfriend has been amazing through all this too gets mad If I get up! I go see the doctor for the post op, I will keep everyone posted!
Thanks for all the support and kind words

Thanks for all the encouragement! I'm glad I joined this side lots of emotional support! Shouldn't have been running around this afternoon as I was in a lot of pain earlier this evening! The tamradol medication I had didn't work for me so I got Percocets! Saw the doctor today and he is impressed so far says hopefully my swelling will go down faster!
Here's another pic with no bra! I can't wait until they're normal! They look square to me now... :( hope that goes away!

Day 3 now! Not feeling too bad at all! Dog jumped up on bed last night though hurt like hell I think scared me more than anything so I freaked out!
Showered last night too! felt great, but im so annoyed of needing constant help! my boyfriend showered with me... i feel like i could do it myself! My arms up dont hurt, more if i stretch out and too the side!
My back is in pain... I think it's just from sleeping, do any of you have suggestions on how to alleviate it?
Ill post a side pic and a nudie before one too so you can all really see the mess my chest was before! Haha
Happy Healing Everyone!

So I went back to work today (I have a desk job) hasn't been so bad! The drive was the biggest pain!
Been noticing some slight itching on incision site as well as feeling sore... Is this normal? I figured its probably sore since this is the longest I've been sitting up straight in days!
I also noticed my neck and traps hurting... I feel like I'm constantly shrugging my shoulders... Maybe overcompensating for the weight?! Does anyone else have these issues?!
Also uploaded some more pics! Side shot before and after! Hope this helps in showing where I was and where I'm at!
Hey all! Well thought I'd update since I was...

Well thought I'd update since I was back at work, had been driving and I'm now one week post op!
Been getting better by the day! However we had a massive snowstorm on Wednesday! My bf came to pick me up from work as driving was hard enough let alone trying to maneuver with sore ta-tas! Well I slipped getting out of the truck, he caught me but my arm did push into the door as I too tried to catch myself! Caused instant pain!! Bawled like a baby! I ended up icing it some more as I could see it swell a bit more! It doesn't hurt like that now and the pain was gone for the most part Wed night?! Should I be concerned?
Took tape off incisions last night too and switched to new stuff! I attached a pic! Please let me know If you guys think I'm healing ok! The incisions are super itchy too... I heard that's a good sign!
Pain sometimes shoots but that comes and goes... Is this normal?
I will upload a full shot later as I think my left is more swollen than right! Want your input!

Well I am almost at the 5 week mark! Incisions have completely closed and now I only get the occasional sharp shooting pain and still have minimal sensation around nipple and lower breast! Will this return?! It feels kinda numb like!
! I go see my doctor in 2 weeks! I'm excited to start working out again!
My breasts seemed to have dropped lots... Maybe not?! But to me they don't seem very high! I'm nervous they'll end up looking saggy!! I've uploaded a few pics to show where I'm at!
Well it's now been 2.5 months since I had my...
