35 Year Old with 2 Kids. Had Deflated 34c -Leeds, GB

I have always had small boobs and for 17 years I have wanted a BA especially after having my two children. I was a deflated 34c 5ft 6 inch tall and weighing 140lbs. I went for my consultation 8 weeks ago and had surgery on the 7th April 2014. I went with surgicare because they were very friendly and the surgeon listened to what I wanted. I was very nervous for my surgery day but everyone made me feel at ease. My friend drove me down to Birmingham the day before surgery and we stayed in the Hilton hotel. My admission time was 9 oclock the next day. When I got to the hospital I was changed into my gown and surgery socks. The aneasatist saw me first to explain what he was going to do, I then saw the nurse and then my surgeon who went over everything and checked the size I wanted to go which was 475cc Natrelle allergen hp round.He marked me up and I was taken into surgery at 12:45 I was in theatre for 1 hour and in recovery for 30 mins before going back to my own room.The whole experience was fab! I am now 1 day post op and feeling sore and tight but the pain is bearable! I am just having problems getting myself out of bed and clothing myself but my mum is helping.I just cant wait for the swelling to go.

3 day post op

Was feeling great yesturday but this morning I felt like rubbish.Had sharpe pains in my right boob and in my left boob a fluttering feeling. I think all the swelling has gone and my bruising is now yellow and nearly gone but they still feel like 2 bricks especially on the top. I dont like going to sleep because the boobs seem to harden more whilst im sleeping and I then need help to get up but once im walking about they feel. better

5 days post op

Well had quite an emotional day today. I think ive had 4 good days but today I ache all over especially my shoulder blades.I can feel that all my swelling has gone and my boobs are starting to soften especially my left boob. Starting to feel more pressure n pain from my cuts under my boobs but ive been wearing my strap across the top which is putting more pressure on the bottom of my boobs. Finally managed to go to the toilet today but the whole of my belly is swollen-hope this goes soon. Cant wait for my boobs to actually feel like they are mine!!!! .ive been sleeping on the sofa and the past 2 days ive managed to get myself off the sofa so tonight I am gonna try go in my own bed.

day 9 post op

Well my boobs are starting to soften although one seems to have dropped more than the other and now looks slightly bigger!.so its putting me off wearing tight fitted tops because its obvious one is lower than the other one :-( . I tried driving on day 7 because I felt okay, it was tough because the boobs seemed to tighten more.The next morning I woke up and I had awful sharpe pain in my left boob.i have put a pic up and labelled pain where I am having it.once I walk about abit the pain goes off but if I push in with my finger it feels sore. Im really worried that driving has damaged my implant and now im scared to drive incase it makes it worse. It the side that I use my left hand to move the gear stick so not sure if ive just overstretched the muscle. Morning boobies is a killer!! Does anyone know how long it goes on for? Has anyone else had pain after driving?

2 weeks post op

Well it has now been 2 weeks and I am doing great! Boobs are softening, my right is slightly a bit harder than my left and my left has dropped abit but I am very happy. Ive been driving 4 days now and last night I slepted on my side and moved sides during the night with no problems.Not having any pain or tightness. I've got my second check up on Thurs day with the nurse to have my stitches out and go through massage routine. I will post some new pics then of my big girls and incision site.I am just very eager for them to drop fully and completely soften.

How to wear your binder

For you ladies who are not sure how to wear your binder.This is how my nurse said to wear it so it doesn't rub your underarms

17 days post op

Well I saw my nurse again today to check my incisions and she says they are healing well and everything looking good. Im still woried about the difference in size and shape but I hear alot of people early on are complaining about the same so guess I just need to be patient. Booked to see my ps in May so at least ill know if everything is good or not.
Dr Mileto

MR mileto was very professional. He carried out an excellant consultation and on the day of my BA went through everything again and made me feel at ease.

Michelle I'm 7 days post op and have sharp pain in my left boob too. How long did that last for you? I'm right handed but do almost everything left handed. I figured I overworked the muscle. Pain is in same spot as your picture.

Thanks Dinarasnewdingdongs. Yours look good too. I read in your review you have ultra hp. I was a bit confused as well lol in my consultation I asked for allergen naturelle round hp and when I looked at my paperwork ive found out that ive got Inspira TRX 470 allergen. So I googled it to find out its textured implants that are extra/ultra high profile. I didnt even think about smooth or textured implants until I came across this forum.i feel abit cheated that I wasnt informed enough about what I was getting but I am pleased with the results. Hows your recovery going? x

lol ino what u mean, they just do what they want once your under, mine are also inspira ntrx 400, so that means textured? I thought yours looked similar to mine in projection lol, well i do feel like twin peeks at the moment just have to keep r fingers crossed all goes ok. my recovery has been great i cant complain, still swollen n numb but other than that im doing well, fully mobile, driving, no pain, bowels r back in order and there softening up already, i put ice packs on and it worked wonders ( the plus side of being numb lol) iv been reading horror stories and i just prey that it all works out x

Good to hear! :) you have to have your stiches out they don't dissolve? I go back on the 30th and u was wondering if mine are going to be taken out or dissolved guess I will find out. :)
  • Reply
No I never had stitches taken out.
  • Reply
Well 440 I was told that they dissove but dont look like they are budging and my incisions have all scabbed so I would rather the nurse just pulled them out. They are just a one long stitch.
  • Reply
Well maybe the nurse wont take mine out, she did say they are dissolvable ones, but they are really bugging me
  • Reply
Oh I see, that shouldn't be bad then. :)

Thank you orange. I love them. Its strange how sometimes I look at them and think they look small and then sometimes they look huge.
  • Reply
I know what you mean. I noticed my opinion on that really changes depending on the top I have on.
  • Reply
Just had a look at your review orange! You look fab. What cc did you get?
  • Reply
Thank you. I went with 375cc high profile gel. My rib cage is about 28 inches around.
  • Reply
You look fabulous! Did you buy your own tape to put on over your scars or did your PS supply that? My surgery is in 2.5 weeks and I'm getting a little nervous. I hope mine turn out as good looking as yours!
