Let's see I am in my mid forties and decided to get a overhaul..... TT breast lift and implants. I had a child at 20 whose weight was close to 10 lbs I'm 5'4 and was 130lbs I gained 60 lbs and didn't lose it until about 8 years ago when I lost 40 lbs and didn't look back. Now well, I look deflated and want to feel good about how I look without clothing also I will be honest the age thing is getting to me:-) I went for three consults before I decided on a PS she was my last one and as soon as I met the staff and spoke with her no doubt she was it. I go for my pre op on the 16th this Friday and hope to decide on implant size. I am pretty nervous about recovery my mantra has been for a smooth comfortable one (power of thought ). i will try to post pics later and check back in. I wish for everyone else to have a smooth comfortable recovery....... good vibes:-)

Day 2 PO,I am feeling much better today, I went in Wed at 6:00 am did all my prep the anestigologst came in gave me something for relaxation. I barely remember being wheeled into the OR but I do remember thinking, wow there are a lot of people in here. Maggie my nurse whom I absolutely love said Hi and the next thing I know I'm waking up in recovery. Every thing went well. I didn't have a lot of pain until the numbing meds wore off and then went from about a 3 on the pain scale to an 8. I didn't have a pain pump I would sugesst that if given the option do it because the night of and day after were really bad she had me on two oxycodone every 4 hours and moved it to 3 every 3 hours for pain mgt. I could barely walk 25 feet to the rest room w/out stopping on the first day , luckily I stayed overnight in rest and recovery this is a must with my PS and totally worth the extra money. For me the recliner was to uncomfortable being propped up in bed is working out much better. I got to glimpse at my tummy wow its never looked this good:-)
I would say my breasts hurt more than the TT which I thought would hurt more because of the MR but my PS said that because of the size of implant (420cc) that was why. I have a compression garment around my tummy nothing on my breast yet but have been pushing them down ( THEY FEEL HUGE) I getting pretty sleepy i'll check in later hope everyone is well.
