5 months update (photo): My Dream Since I Was 12 Years Old came True!!!

Probably by reading this you would be wondering...

Probably by reading this you would be wondering what the hell is she talking about? Which 12year old has a dream of a breast uplift … well the one that had 36C when was 12 years old and the already were down…

I don’t know why this happened to me, my doctor said maybe genetics but really I’ve grown up hating my body and feeling bad about myself. From day one they looked down….I have been so sad and self conscious …every relationship I ever had they commented on how much droopy my boobs were. They made me feel bad. When I had to take my clothes off or when I had sex I felt bad and all I could think was how horrible I look and why would someone want to be with me or have sex with me. Been in your 20s with an ugly body when most girls look great and like models really sucks!!!

My mom used to tell me that she was going to give me a breast uplift as a present when I will grow up but I grew and she couldn’t!!! So I had to wait till I could afford it on my own.

Now I’m 26,5 years old I wear 38DD and I finally can pay for my surgery …I’m scheduled for 23 of June 2012 and I can’t wait. I’m not going to have any implants since the doc says they are already big and he will just lift the up.

I’m so excited, I just can’t wait for the day to come…after 14,5 years my dream is going to come true!!!

Today my doctor called me and told me that we have...

Today my doctor called me and told me that we have to move the surgery …now I I’m scheduled for 29 June 2012..a week later :(

Well I have one more week to go for the operation....

Well I have one more week to go for the operation...I'm starting to be nervous and a little afraid.. what if something goes wrong, what if I don't like the results, what if the healing is very slow, what if the pain is too much, what if.....
I don't know but I've seem to lost my sleep over that.

Do you have any last suggestions that I should tell my doc or any products that I could buy to make my healing process easier?

Ok ladies only 4 days to my operation and I'm...

Ok ladies only 4 days to my operation and I'm scared like hell ...last night I saw a nightmare.. I saw that I did the op and I looked like the daughter of Frankenstein!!! I saw that my breasts were still down and I had scars everywhere and that I was in a lot of pain...I totally freaked out!!!Has anyone had the same experience? I'm I being crazy and paranoid???

Ok ladies... one more day!!!! Tomorrow I'm going...

Ok ladies... one more day!!!!
Tomorrow I'm going to my doctor’s office to discuss once more what I want from him and how want my breast to look like and on Saturday ta daaaaaaaaaaaa NEW BOOBS HERE I COME!!!

Hmm I'm super anxious and excited and I wanna share with u something new... last week my best male friend told me that he is in love with me for quite some time.... and I actually have feelings for him...and we are taking our friendly relationship to not so friendly.... :P, so I'm super happy ...

He also told me that he likes me the way I am even without the op ...which means been saggy... !!!He is the first who didn't say something bad and mean about my breasts...The only bad thing is that now that I'm having the surgery and he won’t be able to hug me for a month or having sex :$. But I'm so happy that I just can't stop smiling... new boobs and a boyfriend that likes me with my old ones!!!

My girls are up....sorry that the pic is not so...

My girls are up....sorry that the pic is not so great but I couldent take a better one.
There was a small reduction. 280grammars from the right breast and 300 from the right.... So now Im a full D.
At my pic there are some markings but only there...not on my breasts and today they cleaned this markings too...
About the pain...my left breast hurts a little bit more but overal Im ok and I just feel some burning on my niples...

Sorry that u can't see much from the photo...I...

sorry that u can't see much from the photo...I haven't seen them yet too...the doc putted surgical glue and not stitches and he told me I that i will be wrapped like that for 8 days...then we will change them and wrap me for another 8 days.... so I will see them in 2 weeks approximately.

Oh my god....my back and chest hurts...like...

Oh my god....my back and chest hurts...like someone is sitting on my chest....did anyone have same feeling?My doc gave me Lonarid for the pain but it doesn't do that much...

Hi ladies, Well yesterday I had a horrible day!!!...

Hi ladies,
Well yesterday I had a horrible day!!! I have told u that my doc wrapped me very tight and the thing is that neither he nor I knew that I was so tight that it was dangerous for my health… I thought that that was the way it was supposed to be so I didn’t say anything to the doc… I couldn’t breathe properly and I couldn’t eat or drink much so I got weaker and when I got up to go to the bathroom everything went black… my blood pressure was really high and I had the most horrible headache ever… so I called the doc and he told me to go immediately back to the clinic. When the checked me there my blood pressure was at first really high and latter really low… my hematocrit had dropped to 28 (the normal values are between 35 and 47)!!! Because of the tightness of the bandages I couldn’t breathe and my oxygen levels where low…So they unwrapped me and changed my bandages and now they are less tight …They also gave me some iron for my hematocrit….they had me on saline and pain killers for 2 hours and when I was better I went home…. NOW I FEEL GREAT AND NO PAIN!!!!

Lesson learnt: If u feel uncomfortable with something u should ask your doc about it….u shouldn’t make any assumptions…

PS. I got a small pick of my breasts when they changed my bandages… wow… they are really up… I think they will look amazing….I can’t wait to take a good look of them and to show u!!!

Today I went for a change and I finally saw...

Today I went for a change and I finally saw them…wow the look great I cant wait for Friday to come to remove everything and be able to show u girls!!!

Hello ladies, tomorrow is the day!!! I’m finally...

Hello ladies, tomorrow is the day!!! I’m finally going to see them for as long as I want….

The thing is that although in the measurements I’m still big when I wear cloths my breasts look small, almost boyish!!!
I was bigger than I thought before the surgery and also I messed up when I was trying to convert my size from Greek measurements to US…so now I’m 40E in US measurements and before the surgery I was a 40F and with Greek measurements I am now a 90DD or 90E and I was 90F.

So I’m still big but they look small in cloths. Maybe it is because I am 6' 1" (185.5 cm). I know that I couldn’t go bigger for many reasons but I wish I could. Most of my tops don’t look good anymore because they are loose in the breast area but it’s ok because now I can wear strapless cloths!!!

Hello ladies I’m about to take my first shower...

Hello ladies I’m about to take my first shower after the surgery… the surgical glue was removed 3 days ago and now I can take a shower… I haven’t posted any pics yet because I am a little upset…my right breast is larger than my left… but is also swollen and it hurts a little... but nothing that I can’t handle it…It’s just upsetting that is larger and the breasts look uneven. I hope that it doesn’t stay that way, although I prefer its size more than the other :P
The doc said that they are going to look even because they were even before the surgery and he only removed 20 to 30 grammars more skin from the left breast and that I have to wait more to see the results. Now I am at day 16 after the op!!!

Sorry about the pics and me beeng dirty but i...

sorry about the pics and me beeng dirty but i still have glue on me and betadine

Well as u can see my left areola got bigger and my left nipple sometimes is out and perky…the right breast is still swollen and the nipple is inside, it still hurts and the skin is creased at my areola…I know they are going to have the same size because they were cut with a tool like a cookie cutter but I just have to wait!!!

Hello girls this is day 22 post op and my right...

Hello girls this is day 22 post op and my right breast is still swollen...is this normal?how long were your breasts swollen?

Hello girls....its day 25 and my right breast is...

Hello girls....its day 25 and my right breast is still pretty swollen... :-( it is bigger than my left...like one size bigger and I'm pretty upset about it...it's been a month and it is still like that...I don't know what to do...I tried to use ice packs but nothing...

Well it has been four weeks since I had the breast...

Well it has been four weeks since I had the breast lift, I can’t say that I have my final shape since they have been changing every day. My right breast is still swollen but the doc said it just needs more time. My left areola that had a weird shape like an ellipsis and it look like the stitches were pulling it down now it has started to take a more round shape. The right areola is still smaller and looks different from the left but the doc said that when all the swelling will go down then the areola is going to stretch and have the same size and shape as the left one.

The vertical scars on the left breasts are starting to fade away and it is weird considering its only been four weeks :D. I still have a little spot on the left horizontal scar that hasn’t healed perfectly put it is getting smaller every day.

The shape of my breasts is still square but it will get better in time the only thing that bothers me, beside the swelling on my right breast, is the skin of my breasts that has allergies from the bandages and the glue and has dark spots and some red ones.

Well.... I'm still swollen on the right breast....

Well.... I'm still swollen on the right breast..but slowly the swelling is retreating and the areola is getting bigger..there is still difference between my breasts. The scars have healed nicely but I still have some glue on them.

Well nothing has changed exept that I just started...

Well nothing has changed exept that I just started putting oil from the plant Hypericum Perforatum (is also known as Tipton's weed, chase-devil, or Klamath weed) ...it is 100% natural and home made... my mom makes and it is very good for scars and wounds. I thought about putting bio oil but when i read that it has mineral oil in it I changed my mind.

Today I also talked to my PS and he told me that in a month I can start puttin kelogel or kelosoft for the scars.

I uploaded some new pics the breasts look weird and oily because I had just putted on them the Hypericum Perforatum oil.

If anyone wants to know about Hypericum Perforatum here is the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_John%27s_wort and if u want the recipe on how to make the oil I'll be glad to give it to u.

I also forgot to tell you... The breasts still...

I also forgot to tell you... The breasts still look different and I told my PS about it and he told me to relax and give them sime time.. they will change as soon as the right one that is still swollen gets better. He told me that in 2-3 months the breasts will have the same size and that the right areola is goint to get bigger and have tha same size as the left since he used something like a cookie cutter in order to make them have the same size and shape... I SURE HOPE SO... I would wanna have a revision although I'm thinking when I'm having my lipo at Xmas to have some fat transfered into my breasts... I want them a little bigger!!! :)

I meant wouldn't wanna have a revision!!!

Well today is exactly 6 weeks post op... and I am...

well today is exactly 6 weeks post op... and I am a little frustrated... my breasts still don't look the same... the right one is bigger and It is not swollen any more. The areola is smaller on my right breast but is stretching out. The thing that really bugs me is the size difference between my breasts... I love the right one and hate the left...My PS said that I should wait at least 2-3 months before the breasts take some shape but I feel bad... Had anyone experienced with something similar... I really hate the asymmetry :'(

Well hello ladies… this is week 7!!! I can’t...

Well hello ladies… this is week 7!!! I can’t believe that almost two months have passed….

My girls are healing nicely!!! Now they have pretty much the same size, although the right breast is still a little larger! I also think I have a problem with my areolas… the left is significantly larger than the right and a little bit lower. My PS said that since the right breast is still changing and the swelling is still retreating that I should be more patient and that the right areola is going to stretch out!!! I don’t know if that’s true but I really hope so!!!

I started sleeping in a prone position again and I am so happy… but I can’t stay long at this position because my breasts start to hurt a little!!!

That’s all folks… I will update next week!!!

Kisses and for those who had their lift nice healing and for those who are about to have their lift I hope you’ll have great results!!!

P.S. I added new photos!!!

Well it has been a long time since my last...

Well it has been a long time since my last update…not much has changed… the unevenness in the size is almost gone but I couldn’t say the same about my areolas. My left is significantly bigger than the right and that upsets me!!!

Another unusual thing is that my right breast has little lumps in it where the areola is located…. I don’t know if that is the case but I think that my stitches are still there and they haven’t been completely absorbed. I came to this conclusion combining the lumps with the fact that whenever I bent down without a bra my left breast takes a conical shape at my areola/nipple area but my right one is somehow flat!!!

I would like a revision but I am relocating to UK so maybe I’ll have my revision there with another doctor…not because I’m not happy with this one but because he is in Athens, Greece and from now on I will be in London, UK.

Anyway I’ve posted some pics in order to see the difference and their progress.

Wow your vertical scars are healing so nicely!

Yes and it is really odd!!! I didn't expected them to look so good so soon... the only thing that worries me now is the shape of my breasts and the swelling on my right breats but the doc said that they need their time too...lets just hope everything is gonna turn out to be just fine.
  • Reply
I know they will turn out perfectly :) I've heard stress has a big impact on healing, so the more worried we are the slower things will go. I am going to try to remember that when I am having a panic attack in 2 weeks!! lol

So far I think I will be happy. It's really hard to tell with all the swelling. My breast seem alittle softer that yesterday, but not much. My nipples look alittle uneven. But, with the right side being swollen more than the left, I think that might be normal Im not sure. I think with the fibromyalgia I have, my pain has been bad off and on. The nurses at the surgical center told me that would happen. She said since my body has already built up a tolorence for pain, I could not expect to be pain free. There was one quick moment last night when the pain did be pretty bad. It didn't last very long though. I am very happy about one thing. When my doc did my lift, he only cut around the nipple. No lollipop scare. He had warned me before surgery, he might have to make the cut down from the nipple and cut under the breasts if the implant wouldn't fit through the nipple. But, he didn't have to make that cut either. So happy not to have any scars, just around the nipples. Those scars should fade and not really show much because of the nipples skin color. It's hard to tell now how my breasts will look after the swelling goes away. But, for now everything seems ok. I'm very happy that I could take a shower yesterday. That always makes you feel better.

wow that's nice...I couldn't take a bath for 2 weeks because I had only few stiches and mostly surgical skin glue...I will try to put ice packs too!!!When u will feel better write a review here u could help others!!!

So much for my shower. When I left the surgical center, my nurse put gauze pads over my breasts so I wouldn't get blood on my shirt. I can't remember how long I waited, but one side had enough blood on it that it dried to me and my glue. I pulled very, very gently. When it finally came off, it raise up a corner of the glue, which looked like tape. I called my doc today because I thought I shouldn't take a shower because the insicion might get wet. Well, I was right. Since the edge of the glue came off, water could get to the insicion. So, doc said to come in and see him tomorrow and he'll fix it. No shower untill he fixes it. I'm not complaining though, I showed yesterday and can again tomorrow. So, I'm still happy. It's been really nice talking to someone who has been though something very similar. Please keep me posted. Oh, by the way, my husband asked if I wanted to cut up my old bras instead of just throwing them away. He said he wanted to.

Shalom Kim in KY Funny what your hubby asked you. Lol..
  • Reply
Yeah, my hubby likes to joke around a lot. I told him to go ahead and cut them up without me, I didn't feel like it right now. He said he would wait for me and we could do it together. When I first started thinking about the surgery, I explained to my husband why I wanted to do it and I asked him if he thought I should. He told me no, not really. He said he loves me exactly the way I am. But, he also said if I decided to do it, he understood and would support me completely. He does seem happy and i think he really likes the new me.
