I was really hesitant at first but after my initial consultation I realized how much I had been wanting this change. I met with my doctor twice before the surgery and discussed the procedure. I was really nervous the day of the operation but everyone was really friendly. I don't remember much after I woke up from anesthesia but I remember feeling so cold that my entire body was shaking. I wasn't in too much pain the first night, just a lot of numbness. It's really hard to tell what you will look like for the first week. You're just swollen like an elephant. I had a very easy recovery - 4 days of fluid drainage, 2 days of downtime. I went back to work on the 3rd day.
The worst part of it was sitting. I couldn't sit anywhere for too long. I recommend buying some dresses to throw on because you will not fit in anything. Also, in my opinion, this surgery would be much better to have during winter. You need to wear a rather thick post surgical garment and it can be a bit hot and suffocating.
I'm now 2 months post op and love my new rear!
