I am 49 years old and had a mommy makeover yesterday. I had TT with MR and 225cc silicon sub glandular. I can hear you all gasp at how small the implants are:) I do not want bigger boobs, just volume replaced. I am 5'2" and 125lbs and work out 5 days a week so going small was the best option for me. My boobs are quite swollen so they look a tad big right now.
I was very nervous and questioned my decision right up until they put me under. From the minute I scheduled the surgery, I was thinking I may cancel. I have great friends and every single one that has had a procedure done, reassured me that they had never regretted it and I will be so happy.
Then of course, I have had all you beautiful soul mates who have been such a huge emotional support for me.
So far, here is my experience. I had barely opened my eyes in the recovery room when they had me dressed (cant remember that) and in my friend's car.
I was not nauseous which is a first for me as I always throw up when put under anesthetic. The Dr prescribed an anti nausea pill given for chemo to cancer patients. It was $80 for 1 pill but oh so worth it!
I could converse last night but not for long. I am taking the maximum amount prescribed Percocet in the shortest window of time (1-2 every 4-6 hrs so taking 2 every 4 hrs) and the pain is very manageable. It's not half as bad as I thought it would be. I have no pain in my breasts, just my stomach muscles when sitting up and my lipo areas. I am black and blue where I was lipod. They said they took out 5lbs!! Crazy.
Today I really have no pain, just massive swelling from the lipo. I know that day 3 or 4 tend to be the worst emotionally etc but as of right now, I'm feeling great with no regrets. Will keep posting and post pictures when I can.
