Consult 7/12/11--Surgery on 8/3/11--I LOVE 'EM!

I have always wanted implants. I actually was scheduled to do it last year but backed out b/c I got nervous. My current size is a 34b. Iam 5' 61/2" and I weigh 130. I want fuller, naturally looking breasts. I am tired of wearing pushup bras! If there is anyone out there, who is close to the same size as me or if there is anyone with advice, please help! =) I have my first consultation on July 26th and hopefully surgery around labor day weekend (unless I can have it done sooner). Iam confident in my surgeon choice and I know for sure I want saline, submuscular and inframmamary incision. Iam just a little stuck on what size to go. Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

My consultation just got moved up to July 12th due to a cancellation! YAY!! It looks as though I will get to have my boobies sooner than I thought! possibly the end of July or the first of August! Woohoo!

Had my consult today and I am super excited!! My PS and I have chosen saline, moderate profile implants in a size 425 overfilled to 450cc's. She said this would bring me to a D cup. My surgery is booked and scheduled for 8/3/2011. Three weeks! I will be anxiously counting down the days! I was very nervous at first but I am now very confident in my surgeon choice and everything we have discussed. I have to say I was shocked at first with the cc size, but after trying on the different sizes Iam sooo looking forward to getting new boobies! I now understand what is meant by each person is different as well as each cc size. Iam glad that I found such a wonderful surgeon and Iam glad for all of the pointers from everyone on this site. Thank you all!

Only 8 days! I have been thinking alot about the procedure. I want it done sooo badly, but then some days (mainly in the morning for some reason), I feel like I shouldn't get them. I think it's just nerves and I try to block it out. I have stopped reading so much because I don't want it to consume me and make me go crazy! All in all, Iam really excited and my only worry is when I will get to go back to work.

Iam getting so excited!! 2 days!! It's hard to believe it is almost here. I have waited so long!

Tomorrow is it! I have to be at the hospital at 10:30a with the procedure at 11:30am. I can actually say that I am not too nervous. More excited!! Sooo looking forward to being on the other side :)

Iam officially augmented! Yay! I LOVE them so far. All is good. Pain wasn't as bad as I expected. Just more exhausted than anything. It feels heavy and a little hard to breathe. I only took a 1/2 percocet and that was just because I didn't want to be blind-sided and caught off-guard with pain later tonight. I go back tomorrow for my post-op checkup. The staff and my PS were fantastic. Iam so glad Iam on the otherside now. I expected to be nervous last night, but I had none of that...was totallly ready. Iam soooo happy!!

Iam 2 days post-op and feel great! I even felt good enough today that I am back at work! The pain isn't bad at all and I feel the most tightness in the middle of the night if I wake up. Other than that things are great. I had my post-op appointment yesterday and my PS said everything looks good. Minimal bruising and no drainage. She wants to see me again in 3 weeks! Iam so happy! :)

Today Iam 5 days post-op. Feel great! I stopped...

Today Iam 5 days post-op. Feel great! I stopped taking the prescribed pain meds and I occasionally take tylenol. I measure a 36D. Still a bit swollen and tight. No pain though. Easy peasy!! I am back at work and I feel as though I haven't had a surgery. I have been sleeping in my bed since day 1. I don't think this surgery could have went any better. Now for the dropping and fluffing!!

Hello! Today Iam 2 weeks post-op. Things are going...

Hello! Today Iam 2 weeks post-op. Things are going great and I feel fabulous! My swelling has gone down and the bruising is gone. No more tightness or pain. All in all I feel almost back to normal. I love the girls! So glad I finally did it. Iam a 36D right now and I couldn't be more happy. I can't wait to wear regular bras although the sports bras are wayyy comfy! I go back for a 3 week checkup on the 24th. My best advice would be if you are thinking about it...DO IT!!

3 weeks post-op today. Had my appointment and all...

3 weeks post-op today. Had my appointment and all is great! My PS okayed me to wear whatever bras I like best. Woohoo! Stopped by VS and picked up a couple. I don't have to see my PS until April 2012 unless something arises. I was told to continue to do a quick massage in the shower every morning to help keep CC away. Iam doing great and still love my boobs! :)

Tomorrow I will be 4 weeks...WOW a month post-op!...

Tomorrow I will be 4 weeks...WOW a month post-op! I still love my boobs. They are soft and have dropped quite a bit. No pain or discomfort. I massage every morning and evening for a few minutes. Iam still very happy I did it! :)

Yesterday I was 5 weeks post op. Not much news since my last update. They have dropped and are soooo soft! My husband says they feel real and cannot tell the difference. They look so great in bras and swimsuits as well as naked. Some of my clothes still fit, but it's definitly time to go shopping! It's hard to believe I did it over a month ago. I am still very glad I did it and have no regrets!

Today Iam 7 weeks post op. Things are going great....

Today Iam 7 weeks post op. Things are going great. They have dropped and fluffed, however, the lefty is still a tad behind the righty. All in all they look great. I sleep on my back, sides, and tummy. I have bought several shirts and swimsuits. I still can't believe I have boobs! I compare my before pics to my afters and WOW...It's so hard to believe!

On 10/12/2011, I will be 10 weeks post op. Still...

On 10/12/2011, I will be 10 weeks post op. Still doing great. Iam back to everything that is normal and have been for awhile now. The girls have softened up, dropped & fluffed and look fabulous. I currently wear 34-36D and 34DD bras. Iam so glad I got boobs finally! My friends and family think the look so natural and I think so too. They feel like a natural part of me now. Best of luck to all of you considering getting implants...You will be glad you did! :)

Hello again. Iam 13 weeks post op today. Nothing new to report. Iam still happy with my procedure and I still can't believe I finally did it. It has been a wonderful experience for me and Iam glad to have had this site to read on and talk to others.

Today Iam 17 weeks post op. Time has flown by. Iam still in love with my new boobs! Nothing new to report.

Iam around 7 months post op. Wow! Time sure does fly! Iam still doing great. I have had no issues with my new additions. I LOVE THEM! I go in next month for my 8 month post op visit. My boobs feel very normal to me now and I get tons of compliments. Everyone thinks they are real. Iam so happy I finally got the procedure done and all went well. I hope the rest of you have good luck as well!
