I expect a wonderful outcome based upon my...
1 month to surgery!!!
I am currently 110 lbs, 5'4'' and have a 34 inch waist and 27 inch rib cage. I am going with a 225cc smooth high profile saline and filling it to 270cc. I am hoping to have a nice pair of boobs that look good in low cut dresses/shirts.
I am in love with Dr. Rafizadeh, but not in the creepy way. He was so thorough during my visits, and spent quality time with me. Although I have yet to undergo surgery, I must give once piece of advice to anyone considering surgery. Make sure you trust your doctor. I feel as if I should feel more anxiety as my procedure date quickly approaches. In reality, I am excited because I know that I can trust my doctor god forbid any difficulties arise.
Will keep everyone posted. Please send me some positive feedback and love!
2 days to surgery - Any last helpful hints?
Can anyone provide me with some final feedback, moral support, or helpful hints?
1 day Post Op
Right after I changed into my gown and socks I entered the creepy white room. I guess this was when it first hit me - IM GETTING SURGERY! I was extremely calm each step of the way, and I didn't even take the prescribed Valium the night before surgery. But as soon as I sat on that bed, I FREAKED! I told the nurse I didn't want to do it - can you believe that??? I asked the nurse to get my mom, who obviously sat with me and calmed me down. My one peice of advice I can give anyone getting breast augmentation is to have a great support system at your surgical center.
After the IV (which sucks) I had a really nice liquid anti-anxiety medication and I woke up a changed women. Waking up from anesthesia sucks, there is no denying that. But they gave me some pain medication, I ate, took a walk, and they released me.
Last night I rested a bit and stayed on top of my medication. The pain really isn't too bad. It feels like a dull pressure. I have felt a lot worse pain from banging my toe!!! The only part that sucks is getting up out of bed.
Yesterday I was able to eat, and I even took a nice 10 minute walk outside. I really can't believe how well I felt only a few minutes out of surgery.
Now it is morning of day 2 (yesterday was the day of surgery). I set an alarm to wake myself up to take some more pain pills at 2am and at 7am. I didn't want to wake up this morning without any pain medication, and I am happy I didn't have to. This morning kind of sucked. Again, the worst pain was really getting out of bed. I went downstairs, I ate my breakfast and I walked around downstairs for a few minutes. Any movement helps loosen you up and release some of the tightness/pressure pain.
Will keep everyone posted on my recovery & will take some pictures after a week of recovery.
Although I have yet to get my surgery (highly anticipating the date) I must say that Dr. Rafizadeh truly cares about his patients. Dr. R. gave me a full hour of his time to answer any and all of my questions during my consultation. He made sure I was happy with the size and the type of implant I will be getting. I had plans on going to a few doctors, but after my consultation with Dr. R. I am positive that he will be great. I must say, the moment you call his office the receptionist is eager to help you as well. The entire staff is a delight, and this office is a gem in NJ! The office is clean, friendly, and highly recommended if you're interested in getting anything done. Thank you Dr. R. and staff.
