I am finally taking the plunge. After years of only daydreaming about a breast augmentation I am scheduled for surgery on 2/21/2013. Interestingly enough, I was originally scheduled to have surgery three days after my consultation (2/7/13), but came down with the flu the day of my pre-op. C'est la vie! The extra time has allowed me to better prepare for surgery, so in a way I am grateful.
So, a little about me:
I am 5'9" 130-135 lbs.
Current bra size is 34B
Desired bra size is 34 D
I have a darling little girl who is seven years old and hands down the best thing that has ever happened to me. Totally worth the saggy boobs, stretch marks and wrinkled navel. Lol
My goal for surgery is to look as sexy and beautiful on the outside as I am on the inside. I feel my best years are ahead of me and I want my body to be part of it. While I am not disgusted by my breasts, I know they have room for improvement and I am OK with that. More than OK. :)
I love natural looking implants and have chosen 400cc high profile implants to be placed under the muscle through an inframammary incision. I
After reading countless reviews, I am beginning to worry I will want to be larger and am thinking about going to 425 or 450ccs. I originally wanted large C small D breasts, but now think a full D cup is in order. I am certain I can hide a ad cup when I want to, but want to show them off in a bikini or backless shirt when the time comes. Plus, I want to have more of an hourglass figure and believe my height and weight can handle a full D.
Anywho, I am excited to be less than two weeks away and am happy to share my experience with this community.
I decided to try on larger sizes and have decided...

I have 450ccs, though unsure of profile. Will find out tomorrow at my first post-op. I am so happy right now. One of the best things I've done for myself.
Today is post-op day 1. I slept fairly well last...

I just got back home from my post-op appointment and that was an ordeal. I can honestly say I was not in pain until the nurse showed me the massage technique. Ouch! After she finished the massage I moved from the examination table to a chair. I suddenly became extremely lightheaded, started to sweat and could tell I would pass out at any moment. The nurse had me take a few deep breaths until I felt OK enough to lay down.
I'm supposed to "massage" the implants every 1.5 - 2 hours, but really don't want to after that ordeal. I keep reminding myself that beauty is pain.
I will post a few more pics later today.
Today was slightly better than the past two days....

I promised myself not to be too critical of my implants this early on. I know they have a lot of moving and softening to do, so it would be unfair to make an assessment right now.
Right now, my breasts feel engorged and heavy. I keep the compression band on for most of the day, hoping it will speed up the D&F process. I'm also terribly bloated, but am hopeful that will subside soon.
Doc said I'm not supposed to wear a bra for 2...

So far, the implants are still riding high, but I am noticing changes. Mine still feel rock hard, though they are beginning to soften. The nurse told me most patients notice a big difference at week 2 or 3, so I will be patient.
I must admit, I never took Arnica or Bromelain and wonder if I should have. You ladies that took them, do you think they made a noticeable difference. I know it's hard to say.
Anywho, I love my new curves so far and have been stalking every swimsuit site out there looking for flattering bikini tops. Can't wait for summer!!!
