Breast Lift and Cold Feet - Killeen, TX

I finally decided to research a breast lift, as I have never had perky boobs. I am 42 y/o with 1 daughter who is 19. I am so excited about new and improved breasts but someways the excitement is overshadowed by the anxiety! I am mainly anxious about being put to sleep. I am an RN and see patients being put to sleep..... I guess that makes me somewhat of a hypochondriac. To see the vulnerability of these patients is what freaks me out the most.

I am tentatively scheduled for December 7th and am trying to remain cool and collective about it but find that somewhat challenging. My husband and daughter are very supportive.... Definitely want to press on! My surgeon is fantastic and answers all my questions thoroughly, and I feel confident in his ability and skill.

I had my pre-op today, it went well and relieved my fears. Friday is the big day, the hospital will call me Wednesday to give me my report time. I have so much confidence in my surgeon, and I know he will give me the beautiful breasts I have always wanted! So thankful for this site, just knowing that everyone has the same anxieties and fears is reassuring!

So I had my surgery last Friday, it was so surreal. I had some anxiety while in the Pre-op hold so I asked my nurse for some Versed. I highly recommend this medication for anyone with a bit of anxiety about getting on the OR table, having the Oxygen mask put on your face, etc. Anyway, the surgery went smooth, and I am very pleased with my Surgeons skills. PO day 1,2 and 3 went well, day 4 was awful. The chest tightness on Day 4 was intense and it caused me some anxiety. However, I got passed all that and am pleased to say the day 5 has been awesome! Tightness in the chest has decreased significantly, and the pain has been almost non-existent. In fact, pain was never an issue, I took Vicodin twice in the first 12hours post op, and since then just Motrin, Tylenol, and icepacks. My post op visit went well, and my surgeon is happy with how they look.
