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.

I am down to 1 Percocet every 5-6 hours. I woke up this morning and got out of bed easily on my own. I am almost standing up straight today and feel so much better. I am through the worst and very excited about that!
So, yes, the first couple of days were tough getting in and out of bed but when just lying in bed, there really was no pain. I expected a lot worse so don't let the potential pain be what stops you from having a MM!
I am now 9 days PO and feeling great! I was out...
