22 and I look my age! No more sagging breast! - krum, TX

Just had my consultation a couple days ago and now...

Just had my consultation a couple days ago and now I'm waiting on the insurance to approve my procedure!!! Just looking for someothers that have done this procedure and have any advice or suggestions. I've always been a 36 DD but after I had my son went up to a 36 DDD and at this point my back in neck has been killing me ready for it to get over and done with!
Good luck! I didn't have any trouble with insurance and I hope you don't either.

Welcome to the community.  I also had the DDD boobs and was so glad to reduce them to the B.  
I will keep my fingers crossed on the insurance approval.   Please keep me up to date.

surgery this Tuesday!!!!

Called to set up my surgery yesterday and after a game of phone tag got through. Iv had a hard time trying to work out my surgery schedule and my husband's work schedule. He works at the sheriff's office and is very hard for him to get time off thank goodness they let him off to take care of are son will i recover. Well she managed to work me in next Tuesday so very excited!!!!!!
always worth calling because it often gives the admin a chance to slot you in early, so excited for you. get your open front pj's and tops ready. bromelain/ bromeliad is wonderful for reducing swelling post op.

I do need to get some open front pj's. Is bromelain the pineapple one?
Reply
Yes it is, I am really impressed by it. Bra gets uncomfortably tight, take 500mg, bra suddenly fits fine!!!!

Question for you guys?

When you had your procedure done. Did you have a pre op appointment? I'm try to get a hold of the nurse but it's difficult to get a hold of her.
I did have a preop appointment one week before surgery. You should have one, otherwise i feel you don't get the needed attention. You need to be informed about what you are allowed to do and what not, which painmeds to leave out ect pp. And you should also be able to ask questions you might have now. I would call the surgeons office, he should do the appointment with you.

I think the reason they didn't schedule one was because my surgery is such a rush appointment and I think he's going to talk to me before surgery but that's why I was trying to call she's very hard to get a hold of.

I take 1000mg, so one in the morning and one in the evening. But take it before the meal, it works only in the intestinal tract and if you take it after a meal it won't work!

3 days till my surgery

Hi everyone i want to thank you for all the encouraging words and wisdom you have made this preparation up to my surgery much easier!

-Gauze pads and tape
- Tylenol or advil
-open front pj's and tops
-  bromelain/ bromeliad 
-Pillow
-Big bra

I have a list of things I have bought anything else you guys can think of that would make my recover easier would greatly be appreciated!
arnica cream is nice for bruising. i drank prune juice to prevent constipation. you need the pillow in the car home to put between you and the seat belt. good luck, hope you will be as delighted as I am.

Day 2

Feeling pretty good I'm sore but not that bad of pain, Getting my wisdom teeth pulled was much worse! They said I could take a shower today but I'm a little scared to take everything off and see them for the first time. I did see my nipple' s and they look great !!! I'll keep updating daily for the next 7 Days for all those who are not sure about getting your BR done. I already feel a difference in my posture and back it's amazing!!!
Welcome to the other side =)) Can't wait to see the "new" you =)

I surfed the internet, watched tv, i am pretty good at doing nothing!!!! After a while i would go to the mall for an hour or two for a change of scene, and went a couple of times to the cinema.

Day 2

I sleep really good last night but was hurting this morning took a pain pill once it started working made breakfast for my son and husband. Then I got my cream in the mail that my doctor prescribed it's like a numbing swelling reliever (smells like bengay cream)but it's so super stickie it says just whip off well that's did not work. Anyone out there use these kinda cream after surgery how did you get it off?

Just had a great idea that works very well!!!

So i had to wash my bra they gave me a the hospital because of that stick gel i mentioned earlier. Well i put one of my tight tank top on and it's going to sound weird but i used maxi pads and the are perfect covering my incision and soft!
my friend used the bra top support vests after surgery instead of bras and did fine. panty liners make great dressings or pads

Much better than my gaze it just keeps sticking to my steri strips. is it normal not to see your doctor for a week my first post op appointment is next Wednesday?

Day 3

Good day went and ran errands all day then cooked with my husband. Feeling good I'm starting to bruise.
You are looking great and I am glad to see you moving around well - keep up the happy and healthy healing :-)

Day 4

Brest are doing good just feel sick today not a lot of energy to do anything

Day 5

Have not taken any pain med in 2 days feel great other than having a horrible cold.
You are healing well !!!
Reply
Well done you, pain meds are not good for you, only if you really need them. I am a bit baffled when I read about people still taking pain killers several times a day 2 or 3 weeks after surgery
Reply
The only reason i would take it now would be my ribs I'm have a hard time with rib pain.

Day 6

Having a soar day I'm very swollen compared to days past. Finally feel like I'm kicking my cold but just been a long day ready to try to get comfortable in bed.
Are you taking bromelein for the swelling? It is wonderful
Reply
No we could not find it at are vitamin shop
Reply
Looks good! Only a little bruising! I love using 100% silicone breast petals (or cups if u can get them) to over my nipples. Silicone is good for reducing scars and they are super easy. I have been wearing those under a wireless Bali bra and have been doing pretty good - heal well!

Day 7

Very busy day! Felling it now still calling around trying to find bromelein (small town problem's lol) I go and see my doctor for my first post op appointment tomorrow. Hope everyone is healing well! Good night y'all.
