Before kids I was fine with my perky A/B boobs. But after breast feeding two sweet boys, I'm left with what my husband and I enduringly call "flappy pancakes" :) my main goal is to be able to go bra shopping and not have the sales lady tell me she can't even fit me into a bra in the entire store! I also want to wear a summer dress and feel cute in it :). I've had three consults and done A TON of research! This is not something I have jumped into and it's been a journey to get me to the point where I am ready!! Good thing cause my surgery is the day after tomorrow!! I have gotten so much info from this site over the last few weeks that I thought I would post my story to maybe help someone else looking into doing the same thing.
I'm thankfully not nervous at all...I am so ready for this. Working in the health care field maybe calms my nerves a bit since I see surgeries and work in them I know what to expect, although knowing this is elective can be scary because in everything there are always very small risks. I'm sure I will be fine and am excited for thursday!!
I am 5'4 and 127 lbs. my main thing I told the doc is I want them to look natural (I don't personally care for the "ball type look" and I want people who meet me to "wonder" if they are real or fake. I am obviously not keeping my surgery a secret... Unless people who know me live under a rock, they will notice since I have nothing going for me up there at this moment. :)
The doc will use sizers in the or to give me a truly natural look but the tentative size is 350 or possibly 375 ccs silicone under the muscle with an infra mammary (underneath) incision. I'm hoping to be a c cup. "show them off in Vegas but put them away for my sons kinder class" ;)
Tomorrow is the big day! Also my sons last day of...

He ended up putting 375 in one and 400 in the other to make me a size c (I had nothing before). I told him as long as I didn't have a ball at the top and they look natural then I would be happy with a full c, I guess they looked natural cause that's what he did!! Can't wait til the am when I have my post op appt. he will remove the ace and put me In a bra.
The staff was amazing and i was thrilled with the staff that took care of me. I am keeping up on my pain pills even though I hate taking that stuff but it is truly key I hear to a quick recovery.
Watching bridesmaids and going to get good sleep tonight (paramedic husband said the doc told me to take 2 Valium before bed and I'm lucky we have a temperpedic bed that sits up (like an old lady hospital bed, but it is awesome, we bought it when I was pregnant) so sleeping on my back shouldn't be too bad.
Hoping tomorrow is good and not horrible since I was probably too with it today. Peace out for now real self, I'm going to attempt pics. Ready to see my old flappy pancakes, lol?
