Drop and fluff....please?!? Leawood, KS

I have been going back and forth about getting breast implants and finally decided to do it. I am 25 years old with two children and breastfed (well pumped) with both of them. My first I only pumped for a month or 2 until I dried up but breastfed my 2nd for nine months so I am deflated and decided it was time to do this for myself!

I am extremely nervous about this mostly because I...

I am extremely nervous about this mostly because I do have some slight sagging, however, I am fully ok with having a natural sag but I am terrified of having "Frankenboobs" like I have seen many times on here. I am so nervous with how I am going to look since I am deflated and have some loose skin already....AHHH!! Only a few more days.

Only a few more days and I am really starting to...

Only a few more days and I am really starting to have terrible anxiety.....I am just so nervous that it will not go as planned or that I have unrelaistic expectations....Please, support anyone! I have been obsessed with reviewing this sight and noticed that, generally, when someone has as much tissue as I have and that there is a slight sag, then the generally end up looking very boxy and deformed for the first few months. I really hope I settle into everything without that look.

Tomorrow is the day....I have to be there at 10:15 a.m. and go in for surgery at 11:30 a.m. I am feeling excitement, nervousness, apprehension and anxiety. I hope all goes well and I can't wait to see my new look. I have come to realize that it is going to take time until they have fully settled and look how they should.....this should help my recovery process a bit easier. At least I hope anyways.

Well I had my surgery yesterday and all went well. I am a little sore and swollen but the pain really isn't too bad. My implants are definitely riding high but that was expected. I got saline, under the muscle and they were filled to 510 cc's. I was a large B/small C to begin with and should be a full D once the swelling has subsided. So far, I am happy with the results and can't wait for them to settle.

Well I am on my 2nd day post-op. Our kiddos are at their grandparents for the night so we are just relaxing and preparing myself for having to return to work Monday. Luckily I have an office job so it shouldn't be an issue. I have only taken my pain medicine once today....the pain is pretty well tolerable for the most part. We went out and I purchased a new bra (that fit a little better) from JC Penny and we went out to dinner. It felt nice to get dressed and actually get out of the house. My boobs are still rather large and high but I'm assuming that will only improve in the weeks to come. I definitely hope that some of my size is from swelling b/c these puppies are HUGE!!

I'm a little worried that I went too large......AHHHH!

Well it has been 2 days shy of a week since my surgery date. The girls are still riding high and seem pretty large, naked anyways, but I am adjusting. I definitely like how they look in the bra and in clothing but I just think that I am not used to seeing full boobies without clothes on so I am in shock.

I am pretty well off pain medication for the post part and the pain is almost all gone and it is more an uncomfortable feeling now. I do take some tylenol before bed and when I wake up in the morning. I get a little sore when I don't move around for long periods of time. I have definitely had some sleepless nights lately though because I am generally a side/tummy sleeper and having to sleep on my back, propped up isn't the most comfortable position for me but I am dealing. I do have some bruising underneat and around my incision that is tender to the touch but other than that they aren't really tender.

I go for my 2nd post-op appointment on Friday and I am going to ask about massaging. He hasn't had me massage yet and I am just wearin a surgical/sports bra 24/7. I definitely wanna do everything in my power to get these puppies to drop. And also anything to help with the swelling. I know that it is still early but I hope that their size is due to swelling because I am a little nervous because I think they look quite large for my frame.

One last word of advice.....make sure you are prepared for your nipples to be hard NON-STOP! The implants push your nipples outwards and mine have literally been poking through my bra and clothing since my surgery!

Hey ladies.....I will be a week post-op tomorrow and it seems like my swelling has been worse the past few days than it was the 1st and 2nd day. Anyone else experience this?

Well I had my one week post-op appt today. My ps said everything is looking great and I go back in 3 weeks. He said I am still swollen and that they are still riding high but that, with time, they will drop and look great. They are definitely still high and "larger than life" but I think once they drop and settle that I will be really happy. They look GREAT in clothes but still look rather large when I am naked but that will all change when they get settle in. I updated my picture and it is a little funky b/c I have both my arms extended but it gives you the general idea!

Well I am 2 weeks post op today. Still a little...

Well I am 2 weeks post op today. Still a little sore every now and then when I move a particular way or if I touch a bruise that developed under my right breast. All of my other bruises have disappeared except this one....it is just about gone but not quite. Both my breasts still have some dropping and fluffing to do but my right has dropped more than my left. Waiting for them to catch up to each other and for this whole dropping and fluffing process to be done!! Ugh....I have no patience!!

The doctor was always there to answer all my questions and concerns. He has been completely up front and honest about my surgery and any and all expectations I could/should have. His staff is equally accommodating.
