Still loving the twins, feeling good!

After having my daughter who is now 11, I completely lost my breasts. They were flat and horribly saggy, I was devastated and extremely embarrassed to have my husband see them. It's been 11 years and I've decided to finally do something about it. I have seen 7 surgeons, my 6th one I was sure was the one. We met and agreed on everything that would be done. When I went back to meet with her to finalize things she had changed everything we agreed on. I wanted under the muscle, she had decided to do over the muscle disect the medial portion of chest muscle and lower my crease! We never even talked about that. If I had not talked with her again she would have done all this and I would have found out too late! Right then I decided to keep looking. Luckily I found a great PS! I am going with a Benelli lift which none of the other dr's told me about. I didn't know I could get a lift without that lollipop scar. I also have very large nipples and he will be able to make them smaller and better looking. I'm going with 400cc under the muscle and silicone. I'm very scared about the size because I'm only 5"2 120 and right now I'm a 34A/small B. Saggy and flat. I just hope I don't have huge torpedo boobs! I do figure competitions and at times I get really lean. I only do 2 a year but I'm really worried about looking out of proportion. But I will say ANYTHING is better than what I have I would rather be too big than have the breasts I have right now. I'm very excited about doing this and can't wait to get this surgery!

I know that feeling when you get to the point that ANYTHING is better than what you have. That's a good place to be for plastic surgery. I hope you absolutely love your results. Please keep us posted!

Well, I have changed my mind again. I just did not think my small frame could handle 400 to 450cc. I felt that that would only cause my breasts to sag even more in the future and with the benelli lift I didn't know if that would be enough. I did my research and found a PS in Houston and I did a consult with him through the internet and it went very well. He does an almost scarless lift using your own breast tissue. I will also be getting implants as well and I can't wait. The scars for me is what has been holding me back all these years from doing this. I don't heal well at all and being African American my scars have always been very dark no matter what product I use. The only scar I will have is around the areola and he will make my very large uneven areolas smaller and close to the same size. I can't wait to get this done!!! 29 days left!!!!!
I'm staying for a week if everything goes well. I'm not looking forward to drive back!

I just cant wait to get this done. April 3rd is coming up fast. I still have to deep clean my whole house and make sure I am stocked up on groceries for my family. I'm glad my hubby is so sweet, he will be taking care me. One of the main things I'm worried about is the trip to Texas. I will be Driving ( yes driving) from Nebraska to Texas. I hope its not too painful on the way back. Also I'm praying that nothing goes wrong. I don't want to have to immediately fly back because something went wrong. Anyone out there traveling a long distance or already traveled? I would love to know how to remain comfortable on the car ride back. I'm traveling that far because no one in Nebraska does the almost scarless lift. I wont have to have the lollipop scar and I am very excited about that.
Oh wow!!!!! That is awsome. You and Brookeh need to post pictures!

I just found out I'm getting smooth, high profile. I really wanted High profile so I am so happy! I really wanted that upper pole fullness that I never had! I won't mind at all a bit of a fake look. My breast have looked way to natural for too long! LOL! Im taking off 2 weeks I hope this is enough. No one at my job knows so I hope I can ease back into work without anyone finding out.
Good luck, I am also taking 2 weeks off & returning to lighter work duties for an additional 2 or more weeks as I have a very heavy vigorous workload. Just trying to locate an Under Armour zip up front sports bra now. Hopefully tomorrow.

Good luck on your surgery :)

He actually measured my breast width and my current size considering the lift he will do. Then he looked at a big Mentor chart and it was written down what cc I need to become a full C( not reg. C but full C). So it's all in the chart too.... Lol. He said I have a naturally wide breastluckily and that's a good thing and easier to work with. I am too really nervous!!

Just added pics! As you can see my right is smaller than left. I think I'm going with 375cc in right and 400 in left. Still undecided. I just don't want to look crazy during my competitions. I really need some advice!!!
Leti.ara Please keep posting pics! You look great! If I could be sure mine would look like yours I would do the 400cc. I think because I'm starting out a little bigger than you I should go with 350-375cc. I swear I'm going to go crazy over this:)
Reply
i will :) hopefully within the next week. I think youd be good with anything 350-400 to be honest with you :)

FitLuv I think 400cc would be fine on you. Thats what i got 400cc hp silicone under and I dont feel like they are too big at all. Once they drop fully I think they will be very natural looking.

I'm trying not to forget any items to buy that i will need for recovery! I will be traveling so I don't want to foget anything even though I know once we arrive I will be sending my hubby to the store for items I forgot!! LOL! I have not heard anything back on my labs yet. I gues no news is good news.
Hi hon, it looks like you are about to perfect that awesome body of yours here soon. I am only 5'2 1/2" and was at 128 the day of surgery. My boobs were seriously skin sacks so I had the lift and the high profile 400cc's silicone too. Check out my pics to see what you think. I LOVE THEM..the girls are right you are swollen at first so don't freak out because they will subside and drop down into place perfectly. As for your trip I think you should have ice packs in a cooler to keep you comfortable and get one of those small travel pillows to go between you and the seatbelt. Listen to the doc and check in here with all of us for any other ideas or advice. I have seen people who traveled for this and it's just important to be real careful. Turning etc. to look behind you will be more difficult. Are you considering an overnight stay after surgery? That extra rest might do you a world of good before you head home. Good luck...and I'll be back to check on you.

Hey Fitluv, Did the Doc put you in sizers so you could see wha tit looks like? I would try it with a bra or swimsuit top to see how you like the projection. Just a thought!~

Yay, my lab results are fine so I can stop worrying!!!! Now I have to make sure I have enough button up shirts for my trip. I thought I was getting this done in Feb so the clothes that I bought are very warm. Since I'll be in Texas I will have to get a few lighter tops to wear.
Mom_me, what was your cup size before?
Reply
Mom_me, your pics are great!!! I'm so glad I have someone my size to see the 400cc on! I am staying in Houston for a week. If I need to stay longer I can. My Dr. Feels that should be fine as long as there are no complications. My hubby will be traveling with me and will be doing all the driving back, so I will just sit back and relax!!!! I will definitely buy that travel pillow for the seatbelt! Didn't think about that, thanks!!! Don't want to squish the twins!!

Scrappy, I traveling to Houston so I have not tried on sizers with my ps yet but I have been to at least 9 consults and gave tried on lots of sizers. I even bout that kit off the net that gives you 4 sizers to play with. Anyway I will see war my ps says. I will need 2 different sizes because of my uneven breasts.

3 days left!! I'm packed and ready to go. We leave for Texas Sunday morning.I can't believe this is happening, I'm so ready. This morning I woke up freakin out about being put under! It was like I was having a little panic attack! But then I took one look in the mirror at my saggy boobs and thought I wont have to look at you any more after tuesday! I immediately felt a lot better! Still undecided about size leaning towards 350 in left 375 in right. I know 400 is not that much more but just thinking of the number 400 makes me feel like im going to be too big. I know it sounds silly. In the end I am going to let my PS decide what will look best. When I email pics to him he said he was thinking 400 so we will just have to see.
Thanks everyone!!! I'm so excited! My husband is calling this trip boobapalooza!!! I will post pics when I can.

Ok, I know this is so late. I have been fighting with my hotel people all day!!! My hotel was so horrible but I finally got my refund and checked into a better place. I did not need that stress today. Anyway, my doctor told me that he wanted to do 400cc in my right and 300-350 in my left. He will have to see with the sizers which will look best. I'm going to trust him and go for it. My surgery is tomorrow at 7:30 and I am so excited! I will keep everyone posted and try post a review to tomorrow.
Good luck! So excited for you!

Hello ladies, I did it!! I'm so happy that I did this. I waited 10yrs for this day!! I can't see the girls till tomorrow morning. I promise that I will post more later this evening! I can't keep my eyes open to type. Hubby thinks this is amusing. Oh, don't know how many cc I got yet.

Hello Everyone, I did it!!!!  I'm soo happy that...

Hello Everyone, I did it!!!!  I'm soo happy that I did this, it was definately the right decision.  I can't see them till tomorrow morning at 10am but from what I can see I love them!  I don't know excatly how many cc's I got but i will find out tomorrow. When the Dr. came out after surgery and spoke to my hubby he was not paying attention at all! I asked him how many cc's did the Dr. put in, and my hubby told me I think 200! he was not listening or these are the biggest 200's I've ever seen! Anyway this has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. 
I arrived at the Hospital at 6am and waited 1 hour sitting in the waiting room trying not to fall asleep. It was finally my turn and I went into a room and changed into that lovely hosptital gown. My nurse was so nice we were laughing and joking the whole time. When I was gowned and all prepped my anesthesiologist came in and he was very nice. He asked me some medical history questions and then told me he had a drink that I woud just love. He left to go mix the cocktail and then my dr. and hubby came in. The Dr. took pics and drew on me with the sharpie. we talked about the size I wanted to be again. I told him full C, he then took a few more measurements. After he left I was given the cocktail in the IV it burned really bad and then.........I REMEMBERED NOTHING!!  I woke up in the recovery room with pain in my chest. There was pain and pressure for me but more pain than pressure maybe because I had a BL and BA. I stayed in recovery for about 1 hour with the meanest nurse who just wanted me out of there. Maybe she couldn't go on a break untill I left. She kept asking me how much pain I was in and when I would tell her it feels like a 7 she would say "Still?, I just gave you pain meds". Every time she would ask and it stayed at 7 she seemed so annoyed. Sorry lady can't control the pain in my boobs!!  Anyway I was finally released and saw my nice nurse as I was leaving. I thanked her for being so sweet, I wish she had been with me during recovery. My hubby drove us back to the hotel which was an hour away but it felt like it was 15 mins. Probably the drugs. I arrived back at the hotel taking my pain meds and just relaxed. I will take pics but I wont be able to post untill sunday:( Again, this was not nearly as bad or painful as I thought this was going to be. Everything went smoothly and I am so greatful for that!  Now the hard part is waiting for tomorrow. I can definatlely see upper fullness and I just love it!. It looks like I'm C cup from what I can see. I can't believe how good they look just bandadged up!!!!! 
Congrats....surgery is now behind you and on to recovery! I personally found day 2 too be the most discomfort because the stuff that was administered during the surgery has worn off and the pressure for me was so intense. Just keep on top of those pain meds.

Thanks GioLA, I will stay on top of my meds!

Ok, I'm very surprised but pleased! He used 350cc in my right and 260 in my left. I would totally have thought the 260 would have been too small! He said I had enough breast tissue that the amount he put in brought me to a C or small D. I can't believe they are the size that they are. If he had put in more like we first talked about I definately would not have been happy, i would have been HUGE. I love my size! With this internal lift he uses your own tissue to lift up the breast and that alone gives you a bigger size. The implant just added that extra oomph. I can't wait for them to drop and fluff. The dr puts you in a underwire bra that helps support and shape your breasts. I am wearing a 36 D. There is a little room in the cup that he says will fill out as they drop. I am very happy with the results.

Yes, I have no breast tissue, he said empty sack syndrome... But he will have different sizes on hand so he can decide on spot . Hope I will be happy like you!
Reply
I think it just depends how much breast tissue you have didn't realize that I had that much and with my kind of lift it adds size already. What I'm glad I did was arrive with a picture and I said I don't want to be ANY BIGGER than this. I think that helped him make the decision he made and I couldn't be happier. Right now I'm swollen so I know I will get a little smaller and be happy with my size. Just be very clear on what size you want to be.

Yesterday, I met the sweetest lady at the surgery center. She was afraid because she saw her breasts after surgery and kind of went into panic mode. She had her surgery right after me and was now in the office talking with the PS. He asked if I didn't mind talking with her and showing her my results. I said sure! when she saw my areola incisions she immediately felt better. We instantly became boobie buddies and i found out she traveled here all by herself. I went to meet her at her hotel room which was 5 min away from mine. We compared boobs and complained about pain. Later on in the evening she called me and said she thought she was having a reaction to meds so I came right over and we ended up having a post op slumber party. She is doing fine now, just developed a rash and had to switch meds. My hubby said thats why he didnt want me to come down here by myself because he was worried if something happened who would be with me. He didn't mind at all that I stayed with her, It's like we didnt hesistate he said are you goin over there, and I said yes right away. I kind of feel like a protective mom even though I'm just a little older than her. She is so nice I really hope her recovery goes smoothly. We stayed up late looking at real self on our Ipads and she got a lot of info. She is going to start a review, I told her all the ladies here are so helpful and supportive this is just what you need! Well today is Day 3, I definately have MORNING BOOB! its worse than yesterday! My pain is on the top part of my breasts and the sides. Otherwise I don't feel bad at all.We are going to the Dr. together to get her new subscription. Hopefully getting up and walking around will help. Also I know this is TMI but I'm hoping to poop today! I've been taking the MoM but nothing has happenend yet. I'm hoping today is the day! Well over all just sore boobs and I've been really hungry. I've had no nausea so I've been happy about that. Still happy with my results, I'm so glad I did this!

Wow, my morning boob has lasted all day. It feels like my implants might fall out of my chest now. I have a very supportive bra on hoping that will help but this still hurts. I'm icing them right now hope it helps. I just want a good night sleep. Even though my boobs are sore I'm still in love with them!

Today I saw my dr. one last time. He said I was doing great. I will email, call or skype him from here on out if I need to contact him. My breasts right now look huge! We walked around for awhile at the mall and I tried on bras. I fit into a 36 D!
That was so crazy to me but I know it won't stay this size. They are still very swollen and high. Hoping just to be a C! I can't believe I was thinking about getting bigger implants than this! I'm glad my PS made the decision he did. I had a little bit of the blues earlier but once I got walking around outside and got some sunshine I felt much better. I'm in for the day now relaxing propped up with all my pillows. I will Be fine on the drive back. I just can't wait to see my daughter! I'm thinking of different outfits to camouflage these babies at work!
Hope your trip home was smooth! I feel swollen, hard and huge today! Hope the swelling goes down soon as right now I am probably a D but I am still wrapped up in bandage and sports bra!

Just posted my after pics! I can't believe I have breasts that are not lopsided tube sock!! As you can see the girls are pretty high and swollen right now. I'm hoping just to be a C. That Bra is a 36D!! I'm really happy with the results right now. The tape will come off with time. If it is still on after 2 weeks I can remove it myself. I can't wait to see my nipples, my PS made them smaller. It's hard for me to get a good look at them right now with the tape on. Today I over did it and I'm very tired. I am just going to relax for the rest of the evening and not lift a thing! Tomorrow I start work but I'm only going in for a few hours, I'm starting off slow. No one knows I had my surery so I'm looking for outfits that hide the girls. I'll let everyone know how " Operation Hide the Boobs" goes. Funny I get the bobs and now I'm trying to hide them!

I forgot to mention I have almost all feeling in my left breast including the nipple. The right has almost all feeling but not in the nipple yet. I know there is a chance that I may not regain feeling but I hope I do.
I'm so happy for you, you look awesome. I know it's hard to be patient for them to drop down, but you look amazing already. Take it easy at work tomorrow. I'm going back to my job tomorrow too but I'm 18 days po. Jeez I need to get my new pics updated....where has the time gone?

Ok, so today I will not be going back to work. I am taking it easy and relaxing! After my 40min fiasco I will not attempt to go back for a few more days! My breast are starting to feel softer and are already lower than they were the first day. I can't wait for my tape to come off so I can get a good look at my areolas. My PS made them smaller so I can't wait to see them. My breasts are still sore and tingling sometimes. My Ps said the tingling is the nerves regenerating so thats a good thing. I'm happy I have all feeling in my left and most in my right except the nipple. I'm still very happy that I had my surgery, just wish I could fast forward the recovery.

I also had meds and just took them when I needed. There is still some tightness and pain but it is a lot less than it was last week. I'm going again tomorrow so I guess I'm back for good! I just wish these babies would drop!! I'm on day 9 so I don't know if that is too early or not so I'm trying to be patient. I can't wait to see the end result!

Today I went to work today. I went in at 12:30pm instead of 9:00am. Getting to sleep in was great. I took it pretty easy and did not push myself. Im glad my job allows me to flexible if i need to. I sent in my pics to my PS today and he said everything is looking great. One thing we discused before the surgery is maybe needing a second surgery if I felt I was unhappy with anything. I may get a second surgery if I feel that my nipples are not as high as I would like. I can tell they are a little low. I will not have to pay for the surgery if I want them to be raised higher. I would have to wait 6 months for another surgery which would be fine with me but before I make any surgery decisions I am going to wait till everything is healed and dropped!! BEACHMOM you jinxed me!!!! LOL Just Kidding!!! Today I was driving home and felt the zingers!! WOW talk about sensitive nipples! You said it happened to you day 9 well this is day 10 and I certainly felt it. I'm thinking of buying the nursing pads until my tape comes off and my incisions are healed. Until then I will be researching what I can use on these babies. Right now I'm still sore on the sides but I don't have a lot of tightness, I hope that doesnt happen to me later! Well I hope all you ladies are healing well.
My tightness is not too bad It's the soreness thats still bothers me. Im also afraid of reaching for items, I'm always thinking should I be reaching like this is it hurting my boob? I'm only day 10 so I have to remember to take it easy.

I totally forgot to mention that I got free botox treatments with my Surgery. At first I was not going to do it. My PS said you don't need it at all, but I told him I've always wanted to try it and its free give it to me! Well I'm a big wimp because OMG it hurt! I will say this, I can see why people become addicted beacuse those few lines that I had are completely gone! I furrow my brow a lot and can't see it all anymore. Since I am a big baby I wont be doing this again unless I realy need it in the future, way in the future! But it was it was an interesting experience and I can say that i tried it. I feel what I reaaly will need is something to fill in the laugh lines on either side of my mouth. Anyone use any filler like restelyn? Did you like it? Anyone else have the free treatments with your Surgery?

Hello ladies! I just need some reasurance. My boobs still look the same! That high odd square shape, how long does this last and when do they start looking normal? I know, I know!!! I'm supoose to be patient but I can't stop staring at them and wondering. I read on this site somwhere that I shouldn't even look at them for awhile but I can't help it. Some ladies boobs look great right after their surgeries,I'm so jealous! Well I know everyone is different and i should be patient but it is soooo hard! I'm still sore but it is getting better everyday. My nipples are super sensitive and I am constantly feeling zingers. My underarms are also very sore and I just noticed bruises there for the first time. Like I said it is getting better day by day but I still have to remember to take it easy and not push myself too hard.

You look fabulous!! I know how you feel about being impatient and wanting them to drop and look good right now. I don't want to wait either! lol But we have to. My doctor told me to put pressure on the top of the breast and hold it for a couple minutes several times a day and that will help with the dropping. Also take pictures every couple days to see the progress. I am doing it every 3 days or so and they are changing, but I don't realize it until I look at the pictures! Keep your head up and try to be patient! You look amazing! :)

Sorry my pics disappeared!! I removed them when I thought a coworker had gotten on this site. I'm almost sure she did because I left the site on my computer history and I'm sure she looked at. I did not tell anyone at work that i had the surgery but im sure she can guess. Its none of her damn business and she has been asking me too many questions and talking about platsic surgery when im around her. I didn't want her sending those pics out to god knows who so I took them down. It's my fault but oh well. I will keep writing reviews I stayed off a while but now I'm back! I don't know if I will post pics again. But I don't have a prob private messaging anyone:) Ok, my breasts are feeling soooo sensitive it's driving me crazy! Especially my nipples any slight touch or brushing against them is awful! Anyone have any remedies?
Thanks so much beachmom! I'm trying that right away! And yes nosy people make me sick!

I am 5 weeks po and my nipples are finally calming down I still use the blue emu at least once a day but I was using it 4 to 5 times a day. lol My boobs have lots of inflammation right now so the PS put me on a steroid pack and I think it is helping after one day. They are are not near as sore and red on the bottom. . I was still taking a pain med by afternoon I was in agony. I went in and said at 5 weeks I thought I would be better than this and they said you should, So he did blood work and luckily no infection so hopefully this will work. I can't believe someone would be that nosy but I guess I can. I am pretty open and if anyone want to know I tell them.. But I would be pissed if someone went behind my back and did that. At 52 I could care less. lol I have showed several friends my boobs.. lol I am sure once I stop wearing baggy shirts at the gym there will be whispers oh well. They are much bigger than I wanted...

That is awful that someone would be so nosy. For the nipples I use blue emu you can get at CVS. and I put a gaze pad or cotton square to cover the nipples it really seem to help..

I just started the silicone Scaraway Sheets yesterday. I hope they work! Anyone else have these? I got them from CVS. I looked for the Blue Emu cream but they don't carry it. Anyway I'm still sore especially my right there is a really sore area on the sde. Im hoping that gets better. Otherwise I'm just waiting for theses babies to drop and fluff! Can't wait for them to look normal!
I feel like I'm bigger than I would like to be. One thing I love about my dr is he will do my revision for free. My left areola is a bit oblong so I'm getting that fixed and both areolas raised higher which will also make my breast smaller than they are. I won't do this for at least 6 months. I'm still happy that I had my surgery I just want to make sure Im truly satisfied with my end result.

Hey Fit! Are you happy with your size? I have not tried on any bras yet, waiting for bra shopping till week six. I think I ended up a D... I'm happy though!

Ok Ladies, I really wish i could go back to my old gym schedule! I really want to be able to do weights and to push myself hard! all I did at the gym yesterday was 30 mins on the treadmill. I have never done JUST that! I know I will have to be patient but it is hard. Especially since I'm at my heaviest right now and nothing fits me right anymore! Ok, Im done whining!!! lol! I still need to drop but I can see a difference. My left areola is a bit oblong shaped but my right is perfect! I will be going back to my DR to get this fixed and to raise them up more. He is going to do this for me a no cost! I've been extremely happy with his willingness to listen to my concerns and wanting me to be happy with my results. Hey I paid this much, I might as well be completely satisfied! I wont do any revisions until about 6 months after surgery. Anyone else out there back at the gym? How long are you waiting to lift?
I know! I don't want to mess up anything! That's why I'm waiting so long up lift, I would be so upset I'd I messed up the girls.

I hear you on the getting back to the gym. I went back two weeks ago to at least get on the elliptical and I sweated up a storm...way more than usual. It did feel good though. It did feel awkward just holding the stationary hand grips rather than the ones that move back and forth. I have only been back one other time since. I loved it both times but between work, kids and healing the energy is sucked right out of me. My PS did not recommend working my obliques or anything that worked my pecks (like lifting weights or even doing planks) until another 4 weeks. Luckily I seem to have only gained within 2 pounds but I am definitely less tone. Oh well....don't want to mess up the work I've had done so it is worth not overexerting for now.

Can't lift heavy at all! Even stretching still hurts so bad. I'm going to wait at least 8 weeks before I try to lift maybe even longer. I just need to start eating right which once I start is pretty east for me. I train ladies
for figure competitions and I am constantly getting on their case for eating badly. They would tease me so bad if they saw all of the take out I had been eating this past month. But I just stocked up on my normal food again so I will be back on track in no time. Once I start eating clean i really do drop weight really fast. Just wish I could add weights that really accelerate my weight loss!

I'm liking them more and more everyday. They still need to drop more but they look great in clothes now. I really wish my left areola was not so oblong shaped but oh well I'm getting that fixed later on. I'm still sore on the sides but it's not too bad. I have very sensitive nipples that are still driving me crazy. Hope the sensitivity ends soon. It's been 1 month since my surgery.
OMG Scrappy I would totally love to meet with you!! I hope we can make that happen! I'm looking to go there sometime in September.

There really isn't that much downtime. It's done at his office and I will probably take a week off just because I have to travel to Houston.

Every day I am feeling better and better! I am really loving the way that they look! I think today I am going to buy a really cute bra. I still need to drop some so I'm sure this is not my true size but the bras that I have are too big and I need to get one that fits better. The sensitivity is less now which is great! Still a little sore but it's nothing I can't handle. I just can't wait to really start working out hard at the gym.I don't want to mess things up so I will ease back into my workouts especially upper body.

I dont remember how far out I was for the sensative issues to go away. I know it was so funny because I would call my PS and say "Hey this is really bugging me" ( what ever it was) then he would tell me it was normal and just fine and then in a week i would go.....Hey I feel way better now" so just think weeks  not days.. I mean look where you were a week ago... and in a week you'll be that much more so

Thanks  IBLE,  I'm taking it day by day. The thinner the bra the worse it feels. If I have a little padding the nipples done feel too bad but then I look bigger than I want. Right now I'm wearing a really cute bra with no padding and it is driving me crazy. Maybe because I had a lift and I had an areola incision. I'm still numb in some places on my right one but both are still tingling. No matter what though, I'm still very happy I did it and would do it again.

5weeks and 2 days!!

Ok, so today is my official day of clean eating and getting back regularly to the gym. I wont be able to lift really hard yet but just getting back into any routine will be nice. I am loving my new breast just have to have a little tweak here and there and I will be completely happy. My Dr. called and said I could come down in 3 months for my revision. I will try to go in August I'm just not sure if my hubby can go at that time and I really don't want to go by myself. Again my revision will not be a major thing just getting my areolas raised and my left one is a bit oblong shaped so I would like them to match better. Other than that I am very happy and I can't believe I finally have boobs! It's weird not having to dress to try to make them look bigger or to be worried that I wont fill out my tops. I'm still a little sore and sleeping on my side is still uncomfortable and I can forget right now trying to sleep on my tummy! I'll say it again I am so happy I made this decision I wouldn't go back to having those droopy deflated boobs for anything! It was all worth it. I will be putting my pics back up soon!
I agree - I wouldn't wanna go back to carrying around my old flapjacks either!

Hey ladies I finally put my pics back up. I am still very happy with my results. I am so glad not to have saggy deflated boobs! I really feel confidant and I am able to wear things I never thought I could. I am now a 34D and I love it. I thought I only wanted to be a C but in clothes you can't really tell that I am a D at all. It's been 8 weeks I still have pain on my sides if I strain to reach for things or lay on my side for too long. All feeling has come back to both breasts and I am very happy about that! I don't feel like they have totally dropped yet, but I am being patient. I am still going back to get my areolas raised just not sure of the exact date yet. But don't get me wrong I am very happy with the results. Anything is better than what I had and I have no regrets, I would do this all again in a heartbeat!!!
Fitluv, your chest looks beautiful, very full ;-) nice!! Do you have your implants under the muscles or on top? I will have a Mommy makeover Thursday the 7th getting a little anxious!

Still not able to lift weights. It Is painful and very uncomfortable to try. Anyone out there with a lift and BA lifting weights? How long did you have to wait until you starting lifting? Other than not being able to really hit it hard at the gym I'm doing very well. I will be going back for my revision in mid august.
no prob fitluv! i flew to AZ to have mine done. makes post op care more challenging. i guess i was hopibg that they were taki g longer to droo than developing cc...but thats not the case :(. altho cc is only in my rt side. they are still very high n tight and i dont thi k thats from cc but becuz i went a but larger so that i wudnt have to have a lift. tough call. i went to aee my suveon this last feb. we opted to try singulair before cutting, removing, n replacing. start w the less invasive first. i will say, they...the ttwins, have responded and are softer. espwcially my rt side. i will try to post newer pics and maybe you could give me feedback...and others. :)

Hey Eastern, I am curious if you are you massaging along with the singulair?

Glad to hear they are getting softer.  Yes, please post pics when you can!

Ok, so this mornining after I got out of the shower I noticed a small bump on my incision and there was just a little bit of pus coming out of it. I squeezed it and just a little bit more came out and then a few drops of blood. I then noticed a stitch poking out which happened to me before but there was no pus before. I called my dr. And he said I did the right thing and that the little drops of blood were a good sign. He then told me to cut off the poking stitch which i did.The bump was completely gone, it was about the size of a pimple so it wasn't very big. Im just freaking out a little about the pus. To me thats never a good sign and I have heard too many bad stories starting with ”there was pus!" Ok I'll calm down ans see what happens tomorrow. The spot is sore but I guess that's normal. I'm going to call my dr. here and see if they want to put me on an antibiotic.
My first concern is that you aren't near your doctor to go see him! I am glad he is able to tell you how to cut it off. But how scary! I am sure you'll be ok- but you never know. Keep me posted!

I'm feeling much better today, I guess spitting a stitch is more common than I thought. I read that some ladies pull them out or trim them themselves after speaking with their Dr. I was told to apply betadine solution until redness goes away but I really don't have any redness. I would tell all ladies who experience this don't hesitate to call your Dr. If you think you might have an infection or you feel something isn't right. My dr. said if I had waited for it just to go away it could have gotten a lot worse. Well, I went to the gym and lifted weights! It was nothing heavy just light weights which was so weird but it was good to get back to the gym. I took it easy and did not push myself too hard. My dr. said it was ok to go back and lift weights lightly. I'm also eating clean which feels better too. Hopefully I will be back in my favorite jeans soon!
Yes, they do! They are good tools to use if you are trying to get into shape!

A great book that will help anyone slim down is by Tosca Reno, The Eat Clean Diet.  She has a few books out, some have food  journals in them some  are just recipes some are a combo of food and exercise.  It's a great way just help drop those stubborn pounds we can't get rid of. Also my FAVORITE magazine in the world, (it's the workout bible )is Oxygen magazine.( has nothing to do with Oprah:) its a fitness magazine that if you are serious about losing weight will really give you an extra boost to do so. It has great exercises in there for women that really will show you how to tone up and drop pounds. I highly recommend getting a subscription! Ok, I'm done with my trainer talk...... for now.

I just did a really good workout today! I did lower body almost as heavy as I use to. I did upper body yesterday but only did about half my weight I usually do. If I go to heavy on upper body it starts to hurt so I lower it to a more comfortable weight. Ladies if you workout any body part, implants or not ,and it hurts STOP. Please don't risk hurting yourself. I feel so good to be back at the gym and able to do more than just the stepmill.
Thanks for updating, Fit! I am worried about when I'll be able to start lifting again as well. Although I am having some pain in my elbow and one thumb so part of me thinks the rest will be good for me. But I will miss it!

Thanks anon!! I actually was only a 34dd for about 2weeks then the swelling went down. I'm now a 34D. In clothes you can't tell I'm a D. But in a bikini top that's a whole nother story!!!

Hi FitLuv! Love the pics. I know you wanted them smaller but you looked good with the 34DD and the wrap dress! Very natural cleavage. Makes me want to change my mind to reduce mine to a DD instead of a D now-LOL!!!
