HP Breast Augmentation - Lake Charles, LA

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,...

My surgery was 9/4, and it is now 9/6. Truthfully, I can't remember anything other than bits and pieces since the BA.
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...

Day 2 Post Op again....
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...

Still have fading memories from the past few days because of the valium. My husband has tried to occupy me with watching movies but I don't remember a single detail about any of them... I'm trying to cut back on all of the meds. The pain right now on a scale of 1 to 10 is about a 3 or 4, but that's only for my left boob. Mainly I just feel like there is an elephant sitting on my chest. But there's a part in my left boob that is actually hurting...it feels like a pebble or something....not sure what to think about it but my hubby says don't worry until we see the doctor again next week. This dang strap on my chest keeps getting twisted and tangled and is cutting into me......... can't wait to throw it in the trash.... Right now, I'm filling out a full 36D cup, but I'm not sure if it's because of the swelling. I'm a little worried that I might have gone small (secretly I think I wanted the big fake look...) but I've read that when the muscles stop compressing the implants, the true size will show. I'm enjoying the upper pole and I don't want to lose it, but I want the bottom to fill out also. I don't like the nipple size, so I'm hoping that when all is settled, it'll look more proportionate. Everyone says that the entire size and shape will change within the next few months - anyone have any tips of what to expect?

Well even more swelling has gone down. No pain,...

Well even more swelling has gone down. No pain, just stiffness and still annoyed by this darn strap!! They are kinda settling - my left is a bit slower than my right. I do wish I had gone just a little bit bigger, but I'm already running into things as it is, so it's probably for the best that I didn't. Next check-up is next week. Until then, sports bra, compression band, and bio-oil!

Going today for my 3 week check up. Hoping to get...

Going today for my 3 week check up. Hoping to get cleared to wear a regular bra and throw this darn compression band in THE TRASH CAN!!! Lol.
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!
