Finally big Boobies! - Jacksonville, FL

I am 5'8 and 23 years old. I have Constricted...

I am 5'8 and 23 years old. I have Constricted Breast Syndrome and the left is a little tuberous, my right breast is smaller than my left. Have a slight droop to my chest. I have always wanted to go through with this surgery, but didn't know when the right time was or if I had the guts to go through with it. I never want to wear another pushup bra again. I plan on donating them or just throwing them away. I have found a wonderful female PS and I really trust her with my body. I do feel like she knows exactly what I am thinking and what she can do for me and my situation. All her work looks so real and amazing. I am getting silicone gel "Gummy Bear" implants and going under the muscle I have a pretty small B and can fit into most AA's and a 34B. My incision is under the breast. I am going for a natural look but perky. Over all I love my body. I love my legs, hips, torso, but my chest doesn't match my body at all. I plan on going B to D.

Im scared. Horrified but I know I want to do this. 8 days until my surgery. Nervous and excited all at the same time. I am very scared of the pain afterwards. I do not feel like the pain medication that I was given will be enough. I have heard that it feels like being hit by a bus. I keep reading the forums and worth it ratings on this site and it helps but I think I am getting worked up over nothing. This site it great and I am so glad I found it.

Can over doing it after surgery affect your healing time? I plan on sleeping a lot and reading books while I heal but 4 days after surgery I have to work for two days at my office. I will be doing a lot of typing. Can just walking or typing too much effect my healing? Is that stupid of me to ask that question? I am also concerned that my boobs will be so high on my chest that they look abnormal....nervous about this as well. Another issue...naturally my aerola (color around my nipple) is bigger on one side than the other. Its not by much but it is noticeable to me. Can I have my PS fix this issue? Thats something I need to talk to her when I see her next.

I had my pre op consult on the 29th of Nov. The silicone implants will be different but only by a little bit. 400cc on the left and 375 on the right.

I will definitely post before and after pix as soon as possible.

Thanks for reading and please comment!

4 Days til surgery. Hopefully they go by fast....

4 Days til surgery. Hopefully they go by fast. Very nervous still. I really am looking forward to talking with my doctor about what I want again. It feels like forever since we talked about what I want...

Just a couple more days...the anticipation is killing me!!!

Okay tomorrow is the day before my surgery. It is...

Okay tomorrow is the day before my surgery. It is going to be hard to get through the day tomorrow and sleep. I have over analyzed just about everything so there is not much more worrying I can do. I will definitely start freaking out when I get to the surgery center.....

Once I see the doctors and nurses I will know there is no turning back! I am just so concerned about the PAIN! I am not good with pain!

I have read the horror stories on here and the great stories...I am as prepared as I am ever going to be.

I am praying that both breasts look normal and symmetrical, lifted and the kind of "augmented look" I know they will be big (400cc and 375cc), but I am praying that my breasts turn out nothing like the way they are. There is no turning back, I have wanted this for so long.

I don't think I am even going to look at them after the surgery, I think I am just going to stay in bed as long as possible...Wish me luck! I am going to try and stay off here until after the surgery. I think its for the best....I know the anticipation is the worst.

Oh my goodness, you're almost there!

Yes, you'll have some discomfort. I haven't been through it myself, so I'm not sure about the typing...just don't lift anything heavy in the least. Part of your surgeon's job is to manage your pain, so if the medication you've been prescribed doesn't work, contact your doctor and let her know. That said, you might be surprised at how quickly you can switch to OTC stuff.

Please keep us posted. I'll look forward to following your journey!

I had mu surgery yesterday and I can't believe how wonderful evryone was and how little pain I was in when I woke up...So happy!!!!!!
My doctor is wonderful and the medication is definitely helping. The worst part was the IV it was so hard for them to find a vein/stuck me 3 times but thats my bad! I have such little veins. Everything went do smoothly and I CANT WAIT TO SEE THEM!!

Wound up putting 400cc in right and 450 in the left. I know that is a great choice and im so glad she made it while Iwas out!! ready to enjoy my boobie!!!

Three days post op and the weight of the implants...

Three days post op and the weight of the implants isn't bothering me as much as it was after the first day. I haven't been taking as much pain medicine as I thought I would need too, I slept a lot. Today I was a little more active.

My doctor called today to see how I ws doing. I am concerned with my right breast still because the tuberousness is slightly there still but she said that will go away with time as the implants drop. I sure hopeso because that is my only complaint, I made such a huge deal over a surgery that went so smoothly! Right now they are really hard and itchy.
Update? Lol
