BAMM! I Have Boobs - New York, NY

My Whole experience has been AMAZING!! I am happy...

My Whole experience has been AMAZING!! I am happy to have found my PS. He has truly given me my sexy back ;-)
Let me start off by saying I am a 43 year old mother of 5 children. Breast fed 4 out of the 5 and my youngest is 10 now. I have been wanting and waiting for my BA for years now. My quest was long and informative. I have met a handful of surgeons and most have tried to convince me to not only get a whole lift but get the gummy gel implants. I was looking for a surgeon who listened to what I wanted and give me what I asked and paid for. After meeting my PS Dr. Ayman Shahine I was at ease and feeling good about looking good minus the ugly scars of an "anchor lift". I know that breast feeding had left my breast saggy and sad but I refused to do a BA procedure if it meant having to get the lift. My PS preformed my surgery under local anesthesia. Yes I was awake throughout the whole procedure. I must tell all you ladies who have done the procedure under general anesthesia I didn't feel anything, nothing, zilch, nada... The only thing I felt was the first few pinches of the needle being used to administer the anesthesia. After that I was so comfortable that when he was done I couldn't believe it. I sat up and BAMM! BOOBS!!! ... He did a peri-areola incision and went under the muscle to give me a more natural yet fuller look using HP saline filled NATRELLE implants. I was impressed and in love instantly even though they looked like torpedoes ( FRANKENSTEIN BOOBIES ) but I did not need the lift at all. He gave me instruction.. Don't wet the incision area the sutures are self fading and wait for surgical tape to fall off on it's own. He gave me scripts for antibiotics and percs. His assistant wrapped me put on my bra and assisted with dressing me. I literally walked out of surgery feeling relaxed and good about the whole experience. My older daughter who was in the waiting room could not believe how good I looked coming out of surgery. The drive home was answering all of my husbands questions. I arrived home and my husband had the bed ready with my body pillows, neck pillow and warm blankets. I really didn't get much sleep that night but not because of any pain more the discomfort of having to be sitting up. I eventually went to the living room and fell asleep sitting on my sofa. I took one perc that morning and after that I honestly didn't need them. I refrained from doing anything. My daughters ages 22 & 17 cooked dinner every night and have kept my home super clean. I have read a few reviews and I'm blessed to say that although there was some discomfort I have not felt any pain. My breast the first day felt and looked different my right boob was stiff and high and my left started to settle. I take pictures every day since the surgery because I want to record the transition. It's only been a week since my surgery but so far so good. I'm happy and cannot wait until the whole dropping & fluffing is complete. I'm excited to see the final product

My first week

I forgot to post pictures and I wanted to share. The pictures are from my first day up until today. My first week has been really surprisingly good. Drinking my post operative Make MeHeal vitamin's I purchased from Amazon,my medication minus the Percocet and having the the time off work doing absolutely nothing. My kitty's keep me company :) I know that with such surgery patience is key..This forum has helped me a lot. I have seen and read the progress of so many women that I want to share mine as well. Wish me luck ladies with my two new editions

My implant info

Just as an FYI I paid an xtra $100.00 to have my implants insured. Warranty so God forbid they ever need emergency replacement it's free

Healthy & Hearty Healing

My 17 year old daughter Queen has always been good in the kitchen ( she gets it from her momma ;-) ) she has been cooking almost everyday since my surgery. She chefed it up for me and whipped up a shrimp & linguine pasta with fresh everything.. Spinach, Asparagus, Carrots, Basil, Cherry Tomatoes in a lite WhiteWine garlic butter sauce. Home made garlic bread and fresh detox water made of Grapefruit, lemons, cucumbers and mint. We are what we eat so it's important to eat good when after any Surgery healing from the inside out.

11/11

Today is day 12 since my surgery and my first day back to work since my BA. It wasn't too bad but wasn't a great day either. Although I've been pain free and I work sitting at a desk typing and clicking away at the keyboard and mouse had me feeling a bit sore and my right breast is still feeling very stiff. I know patience is key but I decided to go see my PS being he is always willing to accommodate his patients be it via a phone call, text or visit. I work in the city so it is easy for me to go into his office. He recommended I wear my surgical band in an angle, on an angle. He showed me how to massage it and then He removed the surgical tape and the insicion areas are looking pretty darn good to me. He said I'm looking good ( THANKS TO HIM) my thoughts.. And said to simply take care of them.. I most certainly will just like new born babies ;)

Boobie Blues Bluring my Brain

Today I woke up and as usual since day one. I go in my bathroom mirror to remove my bra and now my strap to reveal my breast. As I stand in front of the mirror to examine my breast I realize that left breast is so settled it looks sagging and sad. My right is round and right where I want it to be. The stiff rock hardness has subsided and now I'm feeling the boobie boobs. I'm sure I need to wait to see the true results being its only been 15 days since I have the surgery, however I'm feeling regretful and shameful to show my husband my breast again. Im thinking maybe I needed a lift as well to achieve the the best look. However my PS said I didn't and beside that the scar itself would be substantial. I am hoping to see a change sooner than later. If not then it's back to the breast drawing board and my husband will not be happy therefore I will most likely have to pay for it myself. I'm an overthinker and can stress out but these boobie blues are blurring my brain

Great bedside manner.. He answers every question and listens to any concerns big or small. Unless he is in surgery he will answer his phone. If not he will respond as soon as he is available
