I am 6 weeks post op today. Plus it's Valentines Day!!! HVD to all my RS friends. This surgeon is amazing I'm in love with my boobs now. Can't tell me nothing... Lol. It all started on 1/3/13 @8am at Plantation General Hospital I was nervous but excited at the same time. His staff made me feel so comfortable but everyone gets jitters right before surgery. They gave me something to relax after I got dressed and they took my vitals. I remember he came in to draw on me then I was rolled in the OR and asked to scoot on a different table. I got really sleepy all of a sudden and I was out.
I remember waking up and feeling like I was in a deep sleep. No pain just stiffness and soreness. The drains were irritating but well worth it. Thanks to my mother, boyfriend, and cousin I made it through. They helped me get in and out of bed, fed me& gave me my meds. Every day it got better I took my percocets the first four days....that's it. It wasn't bad as I thought it would be. I'm grateful for my results. Thanks again Russell Sassani at Take Shape Plastic Surgery Center.

God is AMAZING!! Today I got a call from the plastic surgeon coordinator telling me I got approved FINALLY for my breast reduction!! I have been denied previously though from Aetna so I thought this time it would be the same outcome. I was soooo shocked!! So now, my surgery date is set for 1/3/2013 for my breast reduction. I can't wait!! I'm currently a 40DDD and I will be going down to a 36-38C. Since, Aetna is paying for my surgery as a MEDICAL neccessity I don't have to pay anthing out of pocket but a $35 co-pay. That was TRULY a blessing for me!!

I have exactly 20 days until by BR surgery!! I'm excited & nervous at the same time...LOL!! My PS is Russell Sussani of Take Shape Plastic Surgery in Plantation, FL. He is the best in Broward County...my opinion! I did extensive research before choosing him. Plus, he's an Aetna approved doctor as well. Had my Pre-op on 12/3 and now I just waiting for my day to come. I got my script for keflex and percocet so I'm ready. I went to buy some button down shirts to wear after surgery and some stool softener (recommended by Patient Coordinator). I have my list of things NOT to do 2-4wks prior to surgery. I had to cut out alot of things...it's all for the better! I want to heal within a two week period so I can go back to work by 1/17/13. I think the only thing I'm worried about is the drains i'm going to have on my sides under my breast! Thank God my mother will be here to help me the first couple of days. To all my BBL sistets and RS friends please put me in your prayers. This will be my first surgery EVER so I'm going to PRAY, PRAY, and keep Faith! God will see me through! I will update once I have my surgery to let you know how it went! Take care ladies....wishing you all the best!
