3 weeks post op BA

So after reading so many stories, I finally...

So after reading so many stories, I finally decided to write my own. My Stats: 30 yrs old, 5'4, 150lbs, 2 kids (ages 5 and 10). On January 13, 2012, I decided to have Vaser Lipo on my full abdomen since I was so unhappy with my post pregnancy belly that I was never able to get rid of. Unfortunately, i didnt get the results I expected, although my belly went down and I no longer looked pregnant, my stomach still doesnt look nice and flat. When my husband said we were going to Dominican Republic this year, I figured since many women are going out there for cosmetic procedures perhaps i should look into it aswell. So I had several consultations, and they all reccomended tummy tucks for the loose skin in my abdomen. After consulting this with family and friends, I realized that it was too much of risk, plus recovery in a strange place other than my home was not a good idea. So I decided that perhaps I need bigger breast to make the appearance stomach smaller. So i started doing research...found a nice doctor...went for a consult, then went for sizing, decided on doing Salines appx 400 cc under the muscle crease incision. Surgery is scheduled for April 2. I feel so freaked out, I am scared of the recovery, I hope I am making the right decision. Luckily I was able to take the week off to heal. I will post pre-op photos as soon as I get home. Looking for advise and reccomendations!!

Just purchased a recliner for my recovery...I have heard from friends that i wont be able to sleep laying down...:( I also ordered front zip bras from walmart. i hope i picked the right size.

Have my prescriptions, my bras, just gotta get the bromelain and arnica....and am ready to go....today i woke up happy but it made feel guilty. I went to the gym after work and tried to tell myself that I will love myself more and be happier with my body....but I dont know still have mixed feelings.

I purchased all my last minute items. I am 13 days away and I am very excited. Trying to maintain a positive mind. I have been staying very busy...I just booked my vacation..hopefully i'll be comfortable enough to travel in two months. I am also trying to clear my desk at work in anticipation of my week off. NOW, my concern is going to small. I chose the 400cc when i went for sizing, they looked nice, but if part of it will be hidden under my muscle am afraid the may be small. But, I was thinking that what am looking for is height and projection/top fullness, so as long as I can achieve that with high profile salines I will be happy.

A few more days left for me and really enjoying...

a few more days left for me and really enjoying certain things which I know I wont be enjoying after this BA, like sleeping on my tummy!!, squeezing my kids, doing abdominal crunches.

Question- Can someone please describe what it feels like to have "morning boob" am concerned about this because i will only have a week off to heal and my morning commute (NYC) is no fun.

2nd Question- Can I party by the second week? I have several events coming up and am not sure if I will be able to make it.

Four more days......why do I feel so scared?

Post op day one...i feel kind of good. the pressure is strong and when i get up it feels really bad. But I slept on my recliner woke up by 240, took 2 percocets then at 5 took a valium at 9am took the arnica pellets and applied the gel. The back pain is what make everything worse. Ill have my hubby apply arnica on my back tonight. Hopefully i can feel better soon...i only got 350cc under muscle..but they feel soooo heavy!

Ok guys, is PO day 5. I feel really good, but i will take it easy until several months in as per my bestie who had them done. The morning is tough...gotta figure out a trick to how am gonna get up tomorrow for work amd get the kids all ready. What I do is take a valium before waking up (like 5) so by 630 am good. any suggestion ladies? Well hope everyone is healing well.

Every day is different. They are heavy for me but i assume it takes time. my besties tells me not to slouch...i guess am a little shy to show them off. Last night i didnt sleep that well...but the night before in slept great. It all takes time...so sad i cant shop yet for cute stuff, but i did get some nice bralets. Desperate to hit the gym...feel fat :( But over all am happy and tonite am wearing my first sexy outfit. Yay! Not sure if I can drink yet? Am off antibiotics.

Is nerve pinching sensation on one breast normal? I am tired of feeling this!!! Will it go away?

Well is been a bit over 3 weeks...I must say the first two weeks are the hardest. It gets better...i still feel a little nerve pinching but not as much...its gotten better since i STOPPED using the sports bra. I went back to the soft strechy bras....the best ones are the victoria secret lacy bralettes, they feel nice soft and allow ur breast to drop. So now am seeing a difference in the dropping situation. I wish i had gone bigger to atleast 450cc cause am not a small girl. But i think about my kids and my office job and remember that i didnt want to look ridiculous or embarrass my kids. but yeah if i are not petite go larger. So far they look nice hopefully theyll get better they are still pretty high.
