I've been reading a lot of reviews about people's...
I've only told 4 people about me getting the procedure done, all of which are friends and 2 of the friends are co-workers. My 2 friends from college are going to be staying with me for the first 24 hours after, and they graciously accepted to help me as we have our "slumber party" lol. I don't have a very good pain tolerance and know i'll be super annoying, to which they said "it'll be more entertaining if anything." Such awesome friends. I do have fears about going too big, but I also have big fears of going to small! I'm also worried about the post-op look and how quickly they'll be able to drop. I'm also crazy worried about what my parents will think... I haven't told anyone in my family and debating on whether I should or not. My parents live 3 hours away and don't plan on seeing them anytime near my post op date. What are yalls opinions on the matter? I know that deep inside my parents love me no matter what, that I am a grown adult supporting myself, and am capable of making my own decisions, but I just don't want to hear them attempting to talk me out of having the procedure when I'm so set on it, and just want to leave all that drama out. They're biggest concern of course would be the money I'm spending that should "be invested in something more appropriate." (or at least that's what I imagine them saying) I've worked plenty of OT at work and I'm sure it will be more than worth the hard work! My brother will be the first to see me (it's just me and him going on vacation a week after my procedure), and I know he won't care, but he'll know for a fact that my parents will flip! I'm over what my friends will think and actually started to see that the friends I've told totally support my decision, which I'm happy to hear! In terms to everyone at work (who if anyone works as a nurse or in any field primarily composed of females, talk/gossip/drama is a pretty big thing), I pretty much just plan to walk in and figure out everyone's reactions then. It's kinda funny to think about, but there have been several nurses to get BAs so that worries me less.
I know I've typed out a book already, but it really does help to get these thoughts out! I appreciate everyone's reviews and can't wait to share my experience with y'all. I can't believe I'm having pre-op jitters when my procedure is over a month away! My hands shake when I think about it! I'm posting my wish pics, and when I get closer to my procedure date I'll post pics of myself as well! So excited!
Pre-op appointment next week!
I'm pretty set on getting a large C/small D cup. I want a pretty decent rack but like most people, don't want them to be OVERTLY fake. I've been looking at the model Emily Ratajkowski and her boobies look soooo beautiful!! I'm hoping I can get as close to her as possible! Really hoping for cleavage too. How likely is it to get cleavage with a BA?? The friend I mentioned earlier who had a BA 2 years ago isn't able to get good cleavage even with good push up bras! PS said I should have them but I'm doubtful :( Going to definitely bring this up at the appointment. I get what the difference between high and moderate profile but not sure what the difference in terms of appearance (if that question even makes sense). A lot of the other questions I have are just when I'll be able to do this and that. I'm REALLY hoping that 4 days post op I'll be able to do an international flight and vacation in Japan. I don't really have a choice so no matter what I'll just have to check in my bags and suck it up... and hopefully be prescribed something that can just knock me out!
I decided to tell my mom about the procedure after she comes back from out of country. I'll let her deal with breaking the news to my dad... hopefully I'll be across the pacific when that happens. Nervous about it but I know she'll love me all the same in the end :) posting some more wish pics, hope Dr. Ethridge is as good as everyone says he is!
Pics of pre-op me
Less than 2 weeks to go!!
5 more days! Mum now knows and getting serious nerves
Cocoa butter lotion
Multivitamins (have been taking regularly too)
Easy to eat foods like pudding, yogurt and jello
A bunch of regular pillows
7up, juice and Gatorade
Anything else I might be forgetting?? I feel like I got mostly everything! I told my mom last week and the only thing she was concerned about was it being to close to my japan trip, which makes great sense but I was shocked! She's COMPLETELY fine with me having a BA! Needless to say I was so incredibly happy!! I told my brother too since were going to Japan together but he is also worried how I'll be through the trip, but is still ok with it. Says he never planned anything to strenuous so I should be ok. My dad knows but I haven't talked to him yet :/ not sure what to expect there. Still happy I finally told my family! It was hard to spit out but mum just kinda laughed and said I'm silly but supports me no matter what. She will be staying with me for a week, a couple days before and then all the days after until I leave for vacation. I'm so glad I'll have her to take me and be with me every step of the way. I don't think anyone else could really do a better job than her :)
Oh and something awesome tht happened was that one f the few coworkers I told brought a cake when we went out one night that said "Congrats on graduating from the itty bitty titty committee" Laughed my head off when I saw it and so glad to have such amazing friends and family!!
I have been having nerves get to me lately though.... Like I'll start to feel nauseous randomly, is that normal??? I've never had any type of surgery other than my wisdom teeth getting pulled out (which is nothing really) so I have awful thoughts of things that can go wrong (especially since I work in the medical field and have seen some bad things happen too). I know everything will be ok but my mind can go crazy sometimes!! Either way hoping for the best!!
How long does it usually take until able to put arms over head, like to wear a shirt instead of a button down?
How tight are compression bras suppose to be? The zip up sport bras I have I fear might be too small but was wondering if it's ok for it to be somewhat tight like a compression bra
When do people usually get to shower??
I know in every case the doctor has their own opinion and way of Doing things and every body is different but I just want to know what other people did.
So far Dr. Ethridge was extremely informative, and very supportive of any of my decisions and his staff were just absolutely lovely, kind, and more than willing to answer any and all questions! Look forward to working with him and his staff.
