I am very excited for you!!    Here is a link to my list of items to consider.  

Keep in mind that some of these are in reference to a tummy tuck and will not apply.  The supplies and swelling tips do apply to both:)

Best advice I can give you is to rest, rest and rest some more. Just bc you start to feel better, doesn't mean your all healed. Believe me if you overdo it you will pay for it. Another tip drink lots of water. Good luck, I went from 36DDD to 36C and it has been life changing. You'll never regret it!

My Dr told me no scar cream for atleast 3 months. I am using Bio Oil and it seems to be working well. My scars have faded to a light pink and my Dr says eventually there will just be a fine line. Also the only place I found a good post op bra was at Walmart. Its a front closure sports bra by Fruit of the Loom. My surgeon liked it so much he started telling his patients were to buy it, and there very inexpensive. I think they were like $7.99. Buy a size larger due to swelling. I'm a 36 and the 38 was good. Hope this helps you out.
