Well, I'm going for my breast augmentation...

Well, I'm going for my breast augmentation tomorrow and I have to be honest - I'm scared.
A bit of history about me: I'm 21 years old, I've nursed one child, and I'm very unhappy with the current state of my breasts. I'm an uneven, saggy, 36A. Depressing!
I'm praying that my life changes tomorrow for the better! I'm going at 6am for my breast augmentation. I'm getting Allergan Natrelle saline high profiles- 465cc overfilled to 475cc(R) and 500cc(L)
After looking at (literally.....) 1000's of boobs online, I finally found the look I want to achieve, but I'm afraid that because of the sagging that is already present, that isn't a realistic goal. I've also freaked myself out by looking at every possible scenario of what could go wrong, both medically speaking and physical appearance-wise. I want to avoid the "cow-tit" look, as I call it, and I definitely want to avoid torpedo-boob.
I'm really nervous, but I'll do my best to keep you all posted on the actual procedure and recovery. Wish me luck!!
My surgery was 9/4, and it is now 9/6. Truthfully,...

That valium is some strong stuff....The main thing I remember is absolute pain and nausea.
BA DAY- the procedure went well. I was incredibly nervous about the IV needle and the anesthesia but I made it through. I woke up incredibly sore and cranky. When I was released, my husband brought me home, put me in a recliner, gave me my meds, and I slept all day long. BTW- If youre getting a BA and you have a recliner, I suggest using it! I would avoid laying down flat on a bed at all costs! It is way too difficult and painful to try to get up out of the bed.
Day 1 Post Op - We went in for my post-op checkup. That was the first time I got to see them. To be honest,
I don't like the way they look because it resembles Spongebob Sqaureboob. I'm hoping that when they drop it'll look better. I also do not like how large the areola is....to me it looks like pepperoni. My husband says it looks fine. Anyway, day 1 post -op, I definitely have torpedo boobs. After the check up, we came back home and I got back in my recliner. I was in an incredible amount of pain, it even hurt to breathe. Later in the afternoon, my husband helped me to the shower so I could get clean and feel better. He also washed my hair for m....Ladies, I wouldn't try washing it on my own if I were you because it hurt horribly. Thats about all I remember from yesterday.
Day 2 Post Op - Obviously they are still swollen and incredibly sore. I'm a little more coherent which is why I'm posting. They are still riding very high too. I love the view when I look down into my bra because I have cleavage, but if I take that off and look in the mirror, it's still Frankenboob. The pain meds and muscle relaxers are still needed. For the first time I was able to get up and walk by myself so I'd consider that progress. Painful, but progress..... I'm still extremely bloated from all of the IV saline. The PS said that's natural and that itll come out on its own.
Things I recommend for the first few days - straws. It's hard to lift a csn or bottle and drink, so straws were a life saver.
Day 2 Post Op again.... I'm not entirely sure...

I'm not entirely sure where the band is supposed to go or how tight it is supposed to be. I also have no idea when I'm supposed to start massaging. I'd kill for an ice pack right now but my PS said no....odd. Also, on one of my valium rounds, I managed to put a tshirt on by myself and I have no idea why I did it. Ugh.
Still have fading memories from the past few days...

The pain is on and off now. I know I said it stopped, but my scars are actually starting to hurt. I don't know why, maybe they are healing. They are sore to the touch and very itchy but don't look at all infected. I'll bring that up today when I see my doc...
I bought a D cup sports bra pre-op. As I'm starting to drop, that bra no longer fits. The bottom band won't even touch my chest wall anymore because of the projection that the boobs are giving. So, if he clears me, I'm going to buy new bras!!
I'm finally starting to get a little bounce in the girls, not much though.
The left is still a bit higher than the right, and to me it looks a little bigger. My PS had to put more cc's in it because it was the runt to start with.... The size difference really isn't bothering me that bad, I'm not going to be that picky. I'm just thankful they aren't what they were.... I finally feel like a woman now!
