Wow, your results look great! Yes, get some rest and take it easy. Stay ahead of the pain by taking your meds. Did you go above or below the muscle?

Today is my 1 week post opt, and to my surprise i have not had any bruising , i still wake up with morning boob , my chest is really stiff and hard to get out of bed , but once I'm up and moving around my boobs soften up again, Sorry that I've taken so long to update i had lost my internet connection , and really hate using my Android cell phone because it miss spells words and it also don't allow me to upload any pictures , my pain has gone from an 8 to about a 5 , so now I'm only talking the pain medications before i go to bed at night , my boobs are still on the high side , but they seem to be dropping into place ,The only bad thing is how itchy my scars get , but I've been applying Coco Butter Lotion on my boobs, and also Mederma on the scars themselves. i apply the Mederma 3 to 4 times a day and i will continue to for up to 8 weeks ,I've also ordered another Caromed Shaped Compression Vest, because that is the most comfortable post surgical garment that I've worn so far, and my doctor is the one who had introduced me to it , it was what i woke up in after my surgery , , i had gone outta my way and spent $150.00 on an Anita Compression Vest with The Velcro Stabilizer, and let me just say that was a waste of $150.00 and of course because i had tried to wear it to sleep , the company could not give me an exchange or even a refund , the adjustable straps were way to tight and short and it was actually causing me pain , the 1 time that i did wear it i couldn't use the Velcro stabilizer, I've tried sports bra's and everything in between and the most comfortable stable compression vest has been the Caromed Shaped Compression Vest , I've taken a photo of me wearing it above , i have already ordered a black and a pink one as well , i picked the OS Old Style Velcro Shoulder straps, Ive uploaded some pics of my healing progress and some to show the size that they have became , i keep all of you ladies in my prayers, for the ladies who are about to have their BA and even for the ladies that have had their BA already , I hope that you are all enjoying your week , tomorrow is my 1 week check up so ill update on how everything goes, I'll update soon , God Bless
your breast look beautiful ;) does the Doc also do silicone implants? How long before you could return to work or resume normal activity?

I can understand where you are coming from Danielle1984, i had debated about getting Breast Augmentation for a long time , and then after i had my 3rd and finial child and finished breastfeeding her, I did allot of research and decided on a board certified doctor , i called an booked my consultation, he made me feel very comfortable and secure , he went over all of the steps , risks , & complications, i had asked him if any of his patients had any of the complications , or risk's and he said No , i trusted him and i am so glad that i did go with my hunch , because i have not even one bruise from the surgery and the pain is manageable, I wish you the best , and Let me know if you do decide on getting your BA , Take care and God Bless

Dr Russell Babbitt

because ive had alot of my friends go there and have excellent results, there site is called Plastic Surgery of Southern New England, He shares the office with Dr. Donald Clukies, i choose Dr. Babbitt because he used the under the muscle placement and Dr.Cluckies proffers to use the over the breast tissue procedure, Dr. Babbitt made me feel really comfortable at my consultation, and he treated me as if i was his own family , I would recommend him to everyone !!!
