Seven weeks post op

I have been considering this proceedure for about 5 years. I used to have perky breasts but now at 50 years old and 2 pregnancies and lots of weight gain and loss..... they have become saggy and flabby. I cant stand to sleep without a sports bra. So my hubby has agreed to let me go through with it! So anxious to have it done!

It's almost here!!! I saw my PS on Thursday and I...

It's almost here!!! I saw my PS on Thursday and I am paid up and ready to go! I am scheduled for 6am on 12/12/12! Excited and a little nervous now that I've read all this info she gave me but I've come too far to back out now:). I have been on an asprin regimine for almost 12 years because I had an ischemic stroke in 2001. I think I'm more nervous about being off my asprin for 7 days than the actual surgery but my neurologist has assured me that won't be an issue.
Any advice from ladies who have already had the surgery? My hubby has his office Christmas party 9 days after my surgery. Do I dare buy something to wear? Will I be up to socializing by then?

I have 5 days to go. Getting a little nervous!...

I have 5 days to go. Getting a little nervous! Adding a before photo today. Will add "new boobie" pics next week

Haha just noticed my pic is upside down... Oh...

Haha just noticed my pic is upside down... Oh well, they look better that way.... Lol. Well I'm stressing a little now wondering how my super spoiled family will manage without me for a few days. My surgery is in 2 days!!!!

Wow 2 days post op . It has been really rough....

Wow 2 days post op . It has been really rough. Anesthesia made me extremely sick so had to stay in recovery for about 5 hours... Vomiting after that surgery is miserable. But anyway got my bandages off yesterday now in s surgical bra. Get to take a shower today!!!! Yay!!!
I'm really sore and implants are very high... Hope they settle in soon! My family has been taking great care of me .... Especially my yorkie, he won't leave my side.... Lol

1 week out tomorrow. Still feels really tight and high but doc promises they will settle and I will love them. I'm still pretty swollen and bruised but haven't taken any pain meds in a couple of days. I am experiencing some constipation if any of you ladies have any advice for that. I guess all those narcotics really cause heck for your system.

Tomorrow is my 2 week mark. Almost all the glue...

Tomorrow is my 2 week mark. Almost all the glue has come off and I get my 'extra' stitches out on Thursday. Still having quite a bit of swelling and implants are still high. Any advice on bras? I've tried several but they seem really tight and uncomfortable! I've tries sleeping without a sports bra but its really painful. My doc said I need to so the girls can relax... Lol I guess keeping them bound up certainly won't help them drop!

Ok girls I need your input. Tomorrow will be 3...

Ok girls I need your input. Tomorrow will be 3 weeks since my sx. My PS says this is the hypersensitive phase where all the nerves are waking up! It's really uncomfortable and I'm so sore I feel like I've been nursing a baby:) I'm still having quite a bit of swelling and I have one small area underneath the left breast that hasn't healed so I've been using silvadine cream on it. My energy level still isn't back to normal so I'm getting frustrated with that. Has anyone else gone thru any of these things?

I am now one month post op. and as promised by my...

I am now one month post op. and as promised by my PS and you ladies, I am finally feeling like myself again. My hypersensitivity is getting much better and my energy is back to normal. I wouldn't say I'm 100% but I'm definitely better! My scars are looking good... I've been using mederma advanced gel in the morning then after my shower at night I use my bio oil. Still have some areas of numbness but getting better everyday.
Anyone have any suggestions for comfy bras? The sports bras seem really tight and uncomfortable..... I feel better going without a bra. My PS says still no underwire. That's all I've worn for the past 25 years so its a hard habit to break!

7 weeks post op as of yesterday. Feeling so much better. I guess right breast is pretty much all healed the implant doesn't move much anymore when I press on it. I guess it has found it's home. Left side still trying to heal this t junction wound and I guess that's why that implant isn't settled in yet. But overall, feeling like my old self again.... Except with perky boobs.... Lol

After much research and reading multiple reviews I chose Dr. LeBlanc. She has great reviews and has been on Super docs list for the last 5 years. At consultation I was very impressed with her knowledge and great bed side manner.She explains everything and gives you realistic expectations. She must be good...it going to be December before I can get on her schedule. I am excited and scared but totally ready to do this. I am concerned about the scars but Im willing to sacrifice a few scars for awesome boobs!
