I recently made the decision to pursue BR surgery as I have constant neck and shoulder pain. I spend a great deal of time on massage therapy, acupuncture and the chiropractor's office. I have bad posture due to constantly hunching for years, in hopes not to attract attention from gawking onlookers. I have been big chested all my life and am looking for pain relief, a non frustrating dress shopping experience and the confidence to stand tall and walk down the street.
Surgery took place on March 1. I saw the surgeon...

Luckily, I had made prior arrangements to spend the night at Southlake Hospital. They finally took me to my room so I could rest. I was curious to see what the new girls look like but I don't have the stomach to check. It is now day three and I still haven't looked. The nurse who changed the dressing before being discharged did say the incisions did not look fresh and there wasn't much blood. I have to also commend Dr Ayeni for calling the hospital FOUR times to check on me. This lady is an Angel and was really concerned about my progress.
Tomorrow is my follow up appt with the doc and I'm hoping she removes the drain. I am still terrified to look at the girls but might peak tomorrow during the checkup.
Wanted to add a tip for sleeping post op: use...

I finally had the courage to check out the new girls and I have to say I am pleased. I am finally free from the weight of heavy breasts.
The only bad news: no shower until next week :(. But like I said, I am following doc's orders and will come up with creative ways to clean the rest of my body.
No pain today, slight discomfort only. I am no longer taking meds.
Is it just me or those of you who had drains...

Health wise, I still get tired if I push myself too far. There is also discomfort below the breasts, where the incisions are, especially toward the ends of the incisions. I have started using bio oil and doing mini massages on the breast. I am surprised how much minimal scarring I have, as the PS did an amazing job stitching me up. I love this woman so much lol.
I would love to find an underwire free bra and looking for tips. I will be travelling to Vegas in a couple weeks and would like to have some shape. Although I wear my sports bra 24/7, I would like to do away with the uniboob! Any tips on bras ladies?
Stay healthy & positive!!
My Doctor: Bimpe Ayeni
Walking into Dr Ayeni's office for the first time was nerve wracking! One of my best friends came with me for support and I am so happy she did. My first impression of Dr Ayeni is calm, patient, confident and pleasant. She immediately put me at ease with her down to earth disposition. Dr Ayeni is by far one of the best surgeons I have come across. She, and her secretary, are both caring, patient and wonderful people. I would certainly recommend her to every person I know.
