Just Did It - Nashville, TN

So I'm starting this a little late. I have been reading reviews on here for the last 2 months. I was nervous, but really wanted this done. My husband was very supportive, but I really needed reassurance that this was the right decision for my life. This site helped me a lot to finally go through with it.

Lets start with a little about me. I am about 5'8 and 142 lbs. I have 2 boy( 4 and 8) months. I was a 34 B before my two children, but after breast feeding both of my children they seem to have gone down to more of an a cup. I still wore the B cups with lots of padding or chicken cutlets. Worked very well with some shirts, nut not so much with nice dresses that have low cut backs or other sexy dresses.

I personally knew my PS so we have had a short conversation about it months ago. His work is awesome so I had no problem choosing my PS. I knew I was in great hands. The only thing was actually getting the ball rolling. I decided to go in and talk to him last a week agp. He was really helpful in describing what I was greeting into and the the different types of implants and all the benefits and risk of getting my BA.

So we decided to go with silicone implant. He describes them as fifth generation gummy bear implants. He let me feel the difference between those the regular silicone and saline implanted. I really loved the feel of the gummy bear implants. Now size was challenging. I tried on some sizes. In the beginning I was unsure of size. I was thinking 350, 375, or 400cc. In the end he went with 375cc. I wanted to look natural.

So as I said I am late at starting this. Today was my big day. I went in at 6am this morning. My procedure was scheduled for 7am. So I went through the process of checking In and preparing for what was about to happen. They then wheeled me down to the operating room and all I remember is being moved to the surgery table and them sticking stuff on my finger and back to track my vitals. The next thing I know I was waking up. So far not a very bad experience when I woke up I wasn't in pain, just very tight. Like I needed to relax my muscles, but couldn't. The elephant feeling that everyone describes wasn't really there again just tight. I'm very vey tired. I feel like I could sleep the rest of the day.

The small peek that I have had of them makes me excited. The look old so far. I little swollen and high, but because of the help of everyone on here I know hat will soon go away.

So this is all for right now. I may update later tonight or tomorrow. Depends on if there are any changes. Thanks ladies for the blogs. They really helped me with my final decision. I am so happy so far. I can't wait to see them in a few weeks when they start to settle in the right position.

Well I am 3 days out ( not counting surgery day)....

Well I am 3 days out ( not counting surgery day). I'm felling ok. The meds I was given not so good. The put me right to sleep. I felt as if I missed an entire day. So Im going to get some Tylenol to deal with the pain. The pain isn't horrible so I should be ok. They still look about the same swollen, but I'm happy with the progress. I can't do,too much with my arms and i can't really hug people without them hurting me. I took a shower and had no problem. My husband also likes it. Just can't wait to sleep without a bra. U hate that feeling. So as yu can see everything is going well. I'll have to post pictures at a later time.
Congrats!!! :) xoxo

I am now 5 weeks out from my surgery. I am feeling normal and back to myself now. The going into my second week was the hardest for me. It was so uncomfortable. I was beginning to wonder if it was worth it. Now that I am feeling lile myself I realize it was so worth it. They have dropped a lot. So they are looking good. I thinking maybe I should have got 400cc. I'm hoping once I put on a real bra I won't feel that way. I'm so ready to bra shop. I'm excited about not having to look at all padded bras. Sexy bras here I come.
Hey! I just got my BA done the day after Christmas in Nashville, TN! Using site to figure out what's normal feeling/looking for about 2 weeks post-op! What doc did you use? :)
