Operation Got Small Boobies -10 Days Post Op Pics

I am still in shock that this is really going to...

I am still in shock that this is really going to happen in a matter of days!! It all happened so quickly, its crazy. I had perfect C cups from the start of my booby days until the last 8 years ir so. Granted I got bigger, but my girls really have run rampant :( lol!! My mother has large boobies & always has so its no real shock that I currently place my boobies in F cups! The fact that I haven't worn a bikini in 5 years just really pisses me off. Or the idea of having to leave a backless dress behind because a bra can't be worn with the dress, has made me shed a tear or two on many a occassion. Then there is the fact my Victoria Secrets credit card hasn't had any attention in years is just plain rude!!!!

So this week is the start to ending those nagging pleasures I have had to do without. I truly am nervous, (did I mention I have a needle phobia) yet I know I have to make this happen.
I have no children, by choice but one certainly being the fact that I couldn't handle my boobies getting an oz larger. Now I need these "babies" to be a C cup and not an oz larger. A D cup won't be good enough, so I really have to enforce this with my PS.

Crazy in 72 hours I will be getting in the bed for the last time with "the girls" . Still mind blowing. I picked up some new tank tops today, with a little elastic shelf bra & picked up my Arnica & Bromelain. I also rented a recliner from Rent A Center. Can't say I have ever stepped foot in that store & kinda wish I hadn't!! Not sure what I was expecting, lol! Oh well I rented it and I will sanitize the heck outta that thing. Just looked nasty. I didn't think you literally get was is in the store :( Yuck, but the chair has a button which lifts the leg thingy-ma-bob. I heard from my friend that the lever was difficult for her to pull after BR, so this is great.

Only thing that has me concerned today is that MD is expecting a Snow Storm starting tomorrow evening. Ranging from 8-14"! What the heck??? Seriously, why now? Praying its all cleaned up by 8am Friday morning.

Today is yet another day closer to March 8th :)...

Today is yet another day closer to March 8th :) Still crazy how in a weeks time my "girls" will be no longer!! LOVE IT!! HAHAHA

Greetings SBC's & BBC's, its official I am a in the SBCC (small boobie chick club). Surgery was a breeze, hell I only remember getting my gas (knocked me out pre-needles) & then recovery room where I was as loney as a bed bug.

I asked my Dr to make sure I was a C and not a big C. I also told him to make me look like Halle Berry, not sure which one I am more looking forward to seeing the results of ;)

As for my first night at home checkout my blog today. I will say out of 10 being the worst my first night post op was a 7 with a few moments of 8.

I added a fee pics. Really bleed through and although Dr said not to change dressing I just have to. Drains are a little odd, like they get clogged and seems like its not moving much. Also I think I can feel were the drains are inserted, that hurts pretty bad 8 for sure on the right boob.

Overall I feel great considering I just had major surgery. I am proud of myself, I did it ;)

Feeling extremely sleepy today. My boobies feel so...

Feeling extremely sleepy today. My boobies feel so tight they could bust!! So not cool, hopefully losing the drains will give some relief. I am about a 7 again today due to this tight feeling and the neck, back pain!
Back to sleep I go.

Hi Ladies
Had my 1st PostOp appt today. He took the drains out and all I can say is OMG OUCH!!! Not to mention I caught a glimpse of the drain he pulled out, disgusting! Kinda made we want to puke. Today I have really still been battling the after effects of being constipation if ya know what I mean ;( no real appetite & still quite sleepy. I haven't taken any pain meds today which is a good thing. Thinking I will only do tylenol tonight. Boobies looked nice today will take pics tomorrow. Oh did I tell ya I got to shower, amen to that!!

Feeling great today! Sleep last night sucked, but...

Feeling great today! Sleep last night sucked, but I think its because I only had 1.5 doses of pain meds yesterday. Today I am only doing tylenol. Overall as of last night & this am I am painfree. Well mine was more discomfort, so discomfort free! 1-10 easiely a 1. Heading out today, lets see how this goes!

Well I made it through the 1st week. All in all I give it a 4 on pain & a 6 on plain ol discomfort. The back pain, constipation and crappy sleep were the worst of it. The swollen boobies hurt like hell, but really much better than I thought. Starting to see some bruising today & really don't like the ripples on the skin. Hoping that goes away when they soften & fall. Either way being in the SBCC ROCKS!!!

Sort of cool news the comfy bras I bought from Nordstroms the Amoena-Francis is far to loose now. Annoyed a bit cuz $80 down the drain under 2 weeks, but happy still. Going to try & sleep in the Hannah tonight. It is tighter for sure, so we shall see. Stomach is at about a 30% still not quite right.

Missed my appt today to have tape removed due to lack of sleep & freaking stomach drama. I also really don't want my tape off. I feel like keeping it makes so much more sense fir the healing process. Going to get the silicone sheets for sure, seems worth the expense.

Crazy but almost at 2 weeks PO!! SBC ROCK for sure!

Just want to let anybody reading my review know as...

Just want to let anybody reading my review know as you must wonder why I have all these crazy notices on here. I have a blog that I begin before I found RealSelf. I just wanted to document my journey from pre BR and beyond. I thought it would be a cool way to help other women. At any rate shortly after I started I found this site, literally hours later. I fell in ? here. So many great women willimg to share. I begin to share my blog website to the ladies here. Garnering great feedback each day I posted I would let you ladies here know a new post was up. Well a week or so in I received an email from RealSelf advisors that we are NOT allowed to post websites on this site to other sites, its in there rules. So although I found that to be a wierd rule whenwe want to share tidbits with each other I stopped posting my website in the various forums. A week or so later the ladies & I in the March forum decided we wanted to start a Weight Loss group, but wanted to be able to freely post links to other helpful sites. So I said I would look into it. So once I secured us a new forum to share info on I Private Messaged it to some of the interested ladies. Once again I was repremanded. You are not even allowed to PM a link to somebody else. That is obnoxious to me, but they say its the rules. Now you will see a link or two from other ladies, but I think I was "flagged" because I had done it more than 5-7x's. Soooooo long story short this is why on a few of my posts you will see my comments removed. I just didn't want any new people thinking I had done or said something rude or disrespectful to others. Many still ask to see my blog idk if this is allowed, but it is not a link so I don't think I am doing anything wrong. Quite a few of our ladies here are guest bloggers sharing their journey & tips to help the next ladies along in the BR Journey.

Your pics look great!!!! I was just wondering if you know how many grams were removed from each breast? Also, I see a lot of people talking about arnica. What is it and what does it do?

You're boobs are looking great so far!! There doesnt seem to be much bruising at all! Good for you! :) I wish I could have left my tape on a bit longer, but it caused small rashes all along my incisions! Anyhoo looking GREAT girl! :)

u are looking great!!!! welcome the small boobie commitee!! lmao

Thanks Ladies! I am on that 3M, getting now! I such want smooth, flat barely there scars so I will ignore DR if he suggests otherwise. It just makes sense to me. Having tapes on for less that 2 weeks just doesn't seem like enough time.

I totally agree with you, Smallboobies, about it making sense to have tapes on for a while to support the skin and reduce tension on the scars. Especially because the tape is breathable. Let me know what your PS says about using tape longer, and I will be sure to let you know what my PS says. According to the way my PS explained the tape to me, it should not be pulled off, it should fall off around 3 weeks or so. I might be recalling this wrong, but I do remember reading some reviews here where ladies pulled some of the tape off too soon, and caused some openings due to the tape tugging some scabs off. So we need to get instruction on tape removal from our PS's and be mindful of how delicate the skin is underneath and have specific information on how to remove the tape, how often, or how to allow it to fall off. Will keep in touch with you about this because I am very interested in doing exactly what you are doing. lol I love how strong-minded (bullheaded, lol?) you are about this stuff! We are the ones who need to advocate for ourselves and our own boobies, because nobody else cares about them as much as we do.

Amen to that Birch!! I get different Drs do different things & I trust my Dr, but I will simply have to disagree on this point if he is oppose to it. Yea I am opinionated, bullheaded, stubborn, strong-minded & usually right!! Lmao

... and that is one of the many qualities that makes you so loveable!! Very thankful to have met you while on the journey to become a SBC. You have made this journey easier, less scarey, and more light hearted for me. :)

I don't see how it could hurt. Especially with the breathable tape- sometimes they want air to get to the wounds, but if the tape is breathable, then the longer the better. Are you going to try the aquaphor too? One thing about silicone sheeting is that moisturizes the scars, when it's staying on, lol. You will need something to heal and moisturize in addition to the tape. I had bought mederma and returned/ exchanged it for aquaphor based on some of the recommendations on this forum. I mentioned to my nurse, and she said that is good stuff for scars.
  • Reply
Ok Aquaphor it is, add that to my list to buy on Friday. Figure I will see if he has any recommendations on what to buy if hr is on board with the taping.

Oh thanks Birch ♥ your kindness & support!!!

You look great! Love the dresses.

Hey Smallboobies, your boobies are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Lovely small perky boobies!! If you decide on the tape, which I will be doing as well, look for this name: 3M Micropore Tape & maybe ask your PS about it. It is highly breathable, hypoallergenic, etc. and comes in white or flesh color. It is a tape that is recommended for delicate skin or skin that needs to be taped repeatedly. You can get it on Amazon for .65 cents a roll, or in a box of 12 rolls really cheap too. I think the size PS's usually use is 1 inch wide, so remember that if you order it because it comes in different widths.. When I have my BR, my PS will be putting tape on my incisions, with the edges of the tape glued, and then that stays on for 3 weeks. After that, I believe they want me taped for an additional number of weeks for the same reasons Rachel V stated, which are that the tape holds the skin together and relieves pulling at the fresh scars, allowing them to heal flat and thinner. After my PS tells me I don't need tape anymore, I plan to either continue with the paper tape for a little longer, or switch to silicone sheeting at that time. Some PS's have their patients use tape for 12 weeks or longer! Oh and you look gorgeous in your new dresses!!!!!!!!!!

I will be using tape for quit some time. I bought regular paper tape- Nexcare from Target, but I will order the 3M from Amazon. Thanks for the tip, Birch. :)

Smooth move tea is the only thing that helped with the constipation. I wish I had it from day one, lol! Also, I opted not to buy the silicone sheeting. I've heard that they don't stay on, which is a real bummer. I don't want to spend 200-300$ for something that will fall off! I instead bought paper tape, which I hear helps a lot. The tape helps the sutures heal flat and it keeps the skin together, so the scars are thinner. I also bought aquaphor healing ointment. I think the key is moisturized sutures held tightly together, which is the purpose of silicone sheeting if it would only stay on. Maybe I'll apply the aquaphor with a q-tip so it's only along the suture, and not on my skin, then the paper tape on top so it can stick to my skin well- ooh, that just came to me as I was typing this reply, lol.
