Hi hi, Well I'm just getting started with this...
Well I'm just getting started with this whole procedure, but I am extremely excited and a bit nervous. I've always wanted to do this, and now at 25yrs I am determined to have it done this year :)
My goal is to have it done in July and I will be having 5 consultations next week. The doctors I'm having my consultations with are : Dr Hochstein, Dr. Roudner, Dr. Rothfield, Dr Shuster and Dr. Revis.
I've never had any surgeries before or even had an extended stay Ina hospital so I am very nervous (I think I said that already..... But probably still good to mention it again)
I have a few questions in mind that I want to ask, but anyone else have any suggestions on the "hard hitting" questions I should be asking to find the right doctor for me?
1st Consultation Down! 3 more to go (one was cancelled)
To be honest, I felt completely comfortable with him, and even enjoyed the entire experience. I left the consultation super excited and wanting to immediately set up my procedure date, but my sister (who came with me) reminded me that I should still go to the other consultations and hear what the other doctors had to say.
So with that said I have my consultation with Dr. Hochstein tomorrow. Today's consultation assured me that this is something that I really do want for me and I feel like it'll only gets better from here on. Thanks for the continued support girls, your comments really have given me the encouragement that I need.
Decided on a doc
Now it's just time to decide on a date (hopefully in July) and to make the down payment :)
Paid my deposit and set the surgery date!!,
My body type
Silicone or saline
So after setting my date, I thought I had fully decided on silicone, but now I'm starting to second guess myself. When my PS told me about silicone providing a better "natural look" for my small amts of breast tissue it sounded great. But now I'm not so sure, while having a more natural look is what I'm going for, I'm worried about the incision site (I am Asian so I am worried that the "crease" scar will not fade completely). I don't want to do it in the areola because I read that I may cause difficulty breast feeding and since I MAY have children later on, I'd like to keep the breast feeding option open. So that leaves me in the armpit incision, but I know that that incision is better for saline.
Also, I am a bit worried about having to do an MRI every 3 years to make sure the silicone implant hasn't ruptured. Lastly I'm also worried that if in the future I'd like to take the implant out the silicone may be a more invasive procedure than the saline.
Lol I know that it sounds like I have my mind made up, but I really don't. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much girls
8 days away!!
Right now I guess I'm just playing th count down game. I still have to go get supplies for after surgery. Any recommendations for the "must haves"?
Thanks for listening :) or should I say... Reading :)
A few more hours
Surgery time pushed back
On the other side!
When I got home I just slept until the next morning. I didn't even care to look at my boobs. Lol
I just had my first post up appt and got the ok to brush my hair. But I probably have to wait till Monday to shower :(
3 days PO
Air bubbles under the skin?
Anyways I'll soon post pics. Thanks for reading girls :)
Should I be worried?
Also I noticed today that the same left breast also looks slightly smaller and has taken on a different shape from my right breast. As my title said, should I be worried or is this normal?
I talk to my ps tomorrow but I'm just freaking out a little today... Which is actually the first time throughout this entire process that I've actually worried... So I guess that says something.
I guess my biggest concern is that I don't want to develop CC.
Doc says I'm ok and healing well
I spoke with the doctor about all my concerns and he said it was all normal and part of the healing process. Phewwww
I don't really have much to update, except to say I'm sleeping a lot easier (in the sense that I can sleep on whatever side I'd like and it won't hurt)
My breast really don't feel any softer, but at the same time they aren't riding as high as they were 2 weeks ago.
I'm still having a little boobie greed wishing I could have gotten them a bit bigger, but the only thing that keeps me from having any "regret" about that is that the ps put as much cc's as he could, i.e I couldn't go any bigger even if I wanted to.
All in all I absolutely love my new additions. I haven't had one day of remorse over my decision. Also, before my BA I was a bit worried that some outfits wouldn't look "right" with bigger boobs, but I was soo wrong. I love everything that I try on with my new boobs!!! Oo I haven't gotten sized yet, I'm still waiting for them to soften a bit before I start sizing them.
I got the ok to start massaging, but after reading all the stories on here I was really expecting to have a more "aggressive" massage technique, but the ps gave me a really light massage technique, kinda like softly pinching my boobs and rubbing the incision line.
My only fear so far, is that I haven't seen anyone (who doesn't know about my surgery) yet, and I'm supposed to meet with friends soon. So I guess I'm just wondering if they'll notice....... :s
Anyways for all my BA girls that haven't done it yet, feel free to ask any questions (not that I'm an expert.. Just offering help) lol
Ill post some more Pics soon :)
He was the first ps I met with and after meeting my fair share of ps' I was really happy with my decision to go with Dr. Rothfield. He was really caring and took his time to explain everything to me. My experience with him made me feel very calm about the entire process.
