Wonderful size on you!!! So excited for you :) I am a mom of five and it's nice to see other moms my age, with lots of kids, doing something for themselves too. It wasn't easy for me at first. The guilt....but we deserve this!!! Especially after ALL the nursing!!! Xo

Thanks nature savor, I also tried 391 mod + as well. The difference was ever so slight. My husband liked the smaller better but doesn't want me to get mad at him down the road because I didn't go a tad bigger..hahaha.

Nervous jitters. Have about a month until boob time but just feeling a bit stressed from the everyday bump and grind. I have help from hubby and friends thankful for that but it still stresses me. I am super active on the go mommy/auntie.I have a hard time relaxing and *taking it easy* ...this will be a challange:-)
On the plus side.... Bought a couple tanks to wear with my new girls. Have one on now can't wait to have some chi chis to fill them out!

Thank you for starting your journey on RealSelf. Many, many moms can relate to your story! Love the sizers on you...are these photos from your consult?

BethH- you are very welcome:-) and yes, the photos are from my consult.
The sizers look great. Did you consider a fat transfer to the breast as an option in addition to breast implants?

Post op scheduled for April 4!

I think that size looks great on you! Everyone told me to go a little bigger and I'm so glad I did, you will be too! :)

Hey, u have to keep in mind that with silicone they will look a bit smaller than the look the sizers give you..so maybe u should get 450cc or 475cc...Saline is what u see is what you get...

dont wanna confuse you,lord knows i dont, lol, but once the silicone gets place under the muscle it will be a tad bit smaller than what u see in your bra with the sizers

Nothing much to update....I believe I am 22 days till surgery. Not worried or scared at all, I have some many PTO commitments, sports, kids and everyday craziness to keep me plenty busy. I'm more worried about preparing my house and meals for post op than anything. I'm pretty tidy in general but I want to make sure ALL laundry is done and put away, bedding washed,dogs bathed and all my vegis are chopped and ready to be juiced. I keep up with the sweeping,mopping and vacuuming as well as bathrooms so that's not a big deal.
Trying my best to tie up loose ends with my PTO commitments, I've let the ladies know that I will be out of commission for a couple weeks. I have scheduled a couple of big events at my kids school during my post op time, so hopefully they go off without a hitch. A mommy friend of mine is filling in for me and she"s great.....she has her boobs done too so its been nice asking her questions.
Its no secret I'm having my breasts done. I am pretty darn flat chests but stll wear fitted clothing(just don't fill out the top), any increase in bust size and its going to be noticeable!! Don't get me wrong, I'm not walking around with a sign flashing about my upcoming procedure but I am open and will not ever be offended if someone asks. My family knows, my girlfriends and their husbands know... Not a big deal here in the OC, kinda the norm.
Of course my loved ones don't think I need this and think I'm perfect the way I am..they understand this is something I've wanted for years. My biggest supporter aside from my husband is my 17 yr old...she's so happy for me. I am grateful for that. My surgery is the day after her 18th day....I don't feel old enough to have a child that age!

Your welcome!
Hi naturesavor Did u like the post op bra she gave u? What size was it? I really would like to order from Tonserio but not sure as to size. They are small, med,large and xtra large. They are made specifically for augmented breasts. Hope you are well:-)
Sahmiam, she had left her bag at home and so the postop bra I received was one from the surgery center. I love it. Dr. Lawton's office was ooh-ing and ahh-ing over it at my postop...they said they liked it better than the one that they normally used! It is so soft, and almost silky feeling, but super supportive (and front closure). Maybe talk with Dr. Lawton and see what she says? If you'd like I can look at the tags and see what brand etc it is.

Been lurking the explant boards. Now I'm a concerned about 10,15+ years from now and how I will feel and what my implants will look like. Granted I am done making babies but still..... Maybe I'll will err on the smaller side as opposed to the larger instead. I will bring these concerns up with my surgeon, she's truly a kind and genuine woman. Also, I'm worried my husband won't find me as sexy as he does now. Maybe he won't like them? While trying on sizes he preferred the smaller implants. Aaarrghh, I need to log off pour a glass of wine and take as soak in the tub.

Hi my surgery is April 17 th I'm getting hp 380 cc saline unders. I pray u have a fast recovery and everything goes smoothly. I can't wait it's going to be my happy birthday to me present. Ill be 40 on the 11th. I'm just trying to take notes off of all the post on here. Have a great weekend !

Had my pre op this morning. All is signed and payed for. I haven't filled my Rx yet because I'm waiting to hear back from my PS about which pain meds to take. I am highly allergic to acetemetiphen. Tried on sizers again, will get 398-425cc range. I am very happy with that and know that either of those sizes will look great proportionally. I am eerily calm and totally not excited. Weird. I just want to get it over with and get on with life.
I have a few surgical bras and a couple bralettes and sport bras in various sizes at the ready. Slowly stocking the freezer with easy meals. Need to stop by Sprouts to pick up my Arnica and Bromelain. Not much else! 14 days till B day:-)

Your Welcome!! Let me know what you think. I'm going to order the scoop bra and the triangle bra, one nude one black. According to their size chart I should order a medium. I hate ordering "blind" though. Oh well, worth a shot :-)

Okay, I've sucked it up and posted a topless before pic. I've managed to come out of four pregnancies relatively unscathed, the most toll has been on my Breasts obviously and the thickness of my hair. I had the most beautiful long,thick and shiny Pocahontas hair! Here I am bare breasted, these are the real working natural breasts and body of a 34 ( almost 35!)yr old mother of four.

Oops...forgot to add that I got my Rx was corrected so I will be taking oxycontin for pain and Valium for relaxant. I really hope I don't need to take the oxy, I would much rather take a high dose of ibubrofren instead. Narcotics totally skeeve me out.

You look amazing. Not "just for having 4 kids"...but really you do! It's scary at first to post pictures of bare breasts but now I look at it like...there are always weirdos out there lookin at stuff and they are gross and all but the real reason we are on here + the huge majority of people looking at these photos are other women just like us who are going through what we have/did go through and I know it helped me SO much to view other women like me and if we can help others? It is so worth it :) Oh and if you end up needing the narcotic, maybe just take it the first few days? I needed it the first week and it was super easy to get off of them. It's like....all of a sudden my body just didn't hurt as much and I don't like the feeling of being on them so I just switched over to Tylenol (then Ibuprofin after 2 weeks). You can do this. You seem super prepared, and you sound like you've got a great support system (including your 18 yr old daughter!) and I am so excited for you! The purple sports bra is so cute....and the latest set of pics you took with sizers are PERFECT for you!!! :)

Thank you natursavor! One of the things that helped most being on this site IS the bare breasted pics of women. I honestly forgot what real naked breasts look like. I never look at mine either. I've made it a point recently to look at my nekkidnes and touch my boobs...just saying "goodbye" I guess. They've done me well and now its time for them to have a makeover:-) I will definitely take my meds the first few days. My husband plans on setting a time so we can stay in top of things. How are you doing? Everything settling in nicely? Oh! One more thing...did your kids notice a difference in your breast size? I'm most concerned with my 6 yr old. He's the worlds biggest mamas boy and a big time snuggled.
I know how hard it is to post your bare breast photo. I had anxiety posting mine too! But your breast look a lot like mine did before I had them done. Same size and sagginess:( I got 457 cc silicone so if your liking my look then you should get similar results. I am 5'5" and 127 lbs and musclular athletic build. We are very similar. Good luck! You are going to look great!!

Got my confirmation call from the surgery center. Was happy to hear that I can have a light breakfast up until 6:30 am the day of surgery and can have water up until 8:30am. Maybe I will get a workout in the morning since I can drink water! Also, I can take a Valium to help me relax while I wait at home. I have panic attacks so to hear that I could take that or a xanax made me hopeful. I will only take it if I truly am on the verge on an attack.
As long as I keep rested, hydrated,get my yoga in and stay positive I should be fine. My lexapro/wellbutrin combo helps a whole lot too:-)
Hard to believe that precisely this time next week I will be on the OR table being sliced open. I wish I could have my procedure video taped so I can watch it later...I like that kind of stuff.

If you gave birth, this will be a walk in the park for you! Plus, you're in good shape so you should heal well too. Taking a small pre med is extremely common...so you're set to go! You may want to check with both your doctors if there are any concerns with taking pains meds and your Lexapro/Wellbutrin combo. Have you set up for recovery yet? Take care and keep us posted!

Got my confirmation call today too!! Whoo hoo! Super deluxe happy that its really happening! I can have clear beverages until 10:30am. Come this time but a mere 7 days we will have the boobs (lipo for me) that we have so desired!! Hopefully neither of us will have a panic attack. As a nursing student (I am a nurse now) I loved being in the OR watching procedures. Good luck and we both have to post pics as soon as we can!! ;-)

My last weekend with teeny boobies!
Ladies, I seem to have a little cough and sniffle. I suffer from allergies and we have some roofing construction going on next door. I'm assuming that this is exacerbating the allergies. If I take a benedryl( got the OK on this) it goes away... if by any chance I have a little cold does surgery get rescheduled?
I have no other symptoms what so ever...I'm afraid if I call PS they will
Want to hold off.

Hah! I am totally with you on that. I wish someone had filmed my surgery as well!! ;) I'm sure you'll be fine by next weekend, as far as a cold goes. They just don't want you in the throes of a terrible illness with a fever, etc. Getting so close!!! p.s. I take Pristiq and they said the possibility of having side effects from the other meds were a little greater (both the Percocet and the Valium) however I didn't have that problem. It was totally fine. SO excited for you!!

I sure will, BethH! I have made sure over and over again with my PS and surgical nurse that my meds are okay with my post surgery Rxs and all is clear, thank goodness. I do once in a blue moon have a xanax or valium in addition to my other meds when I'm having trouble with anxiety/panic. As long as I am on top of taking care of myself I am able to keep those problems in check:-)

I just got back from CVS, picked up my oxycontin ,valium, colace, smooth move tea and a new lipgloss:-)
My freezer is bursting with easily prepared meals. All I need to do is make a trip to sprouts to stock up on fresh fruit and veggies for the week. I will pick up a couple of pineapples, swiss chard and kale to juice the morning of surgery so I can have that afterwards. I've been juicing with those ingredients this last week and a half with various other vegis to help fortify and aid in healing my body. Also been applying my self tanner:-)
I feel absolutely ready and prepared:-)

My house is clean and laundry is done, all the bedding is washed, pantry,freezer and fridge is packed. Now the hard part is not having the kids destroy my efforts.
Today is my oldest daughters 18th bday so on top of the last minute cleaning I've been preparing her day dinner. Thankfully its an easy dish!!
I'm posting one last pic of my little before boobies, tomorrow will be getting new boobies to fill out my dress.

Thanks ladies!!! Just finished cleaning up dinner, we had company over:-) I took a Valium, did another round of self tanner as well. I spoke with my anesthesiologist and he said I'm OK to drink water up until 11 am, my surgery is at 2:30. I thought that was weird. Less than 24 hrs to go:-) I'll update you all as soon as I can tomorrow. XxOOoxx

My surgery was uneventful and went smoothy. I arrived at 12:30, checked it and then did the of my prep stuff. Nurse brought me back, weighed me and. took urine sample. Changed into gown and booties, had vitals taken and put the patch on behind ear. Nurse started IV , chatted with my hubby and was soon taken into OR. Once there I spoke more worth anethesiologist, and was out like a light. I awoke while being wheeled into recovery and stayed up since. My pain level was at around a 3 but as minutes sent by I could feel the tightness, pressure and discomfort spreading. I had no nausea thank goodness! Kept asking for my husband, my girlfrin came in and chkd on me. Mk y very attentive nurse gave me a fentynyl and hubby helps me get dresses and we went home! Easy peasy:-)
I'm pretty uncomfortable, I would say a6-7 on pain scale. Manageable but annoying none the less. My kids and hubby have been wonderful! My Lil man has drawn me so get well pictures and stuck thmw on my wall..love it.

I was wondering if any of u had a complete lack of appetite post surgery? The last solid meal I have was yesterday at 6:30 am. I've been drinking tons of water that's all I really want. I also drank a fresh veggies juice from my juicer. It was kale and pineapple. That counts for nutrition but I just don't feel hungry at all! Anyone else have this?

Congrats on getting through your surgery and into recovery! Your breasts are looking so great already! I read your post about how nesting makes you relax and I am the same way!! I have written list after list of things to do, buy, get, clean, etc before my surgery. Of course I have 2 toddlers so I can't do anything until the last minute or else they will destroy it;) LOL! I will definitely be following your recovery since you are just about a month ahead of me. Don't feel bad about getting lots of rest. With 4 kids I know you have rarely had the opportunity to really focus on yourself, so I hope you can relax and enjoy others picking up the slack for you. I thought of my hospital stay after the birth of my babies as "club med" since I did not have to do anything but lay around and look at my new baby all day. I am planning on taking the same approach with this surgery. I can't wait to just lock myself in my room with my tablet, tv, and great books and take care of nothing but myself! Happy swim suit season to you and your new girls!

POD 3: feeling much better as everyday goes by. Bloating and exhaustion being my two biggest complaints. I have been taking colace two before BA and twice a day since as well as smooth move tea once a day. I have had a bit if diarrhea today as a result. I'm not do planing though. It wasn't so bad.
I went to Kolhs with hubby last night for those bandini bras and it was too much for me. In did get some but went straight home an he pout me to bed, bless his heart. He has been such a blessing and sweetheart, I don't know what I have ever done to deserve such a doll. The kids have been doing awesome and listening to daddy and helping wherever needed. My neighbor and good friends brought over a delish dinner over last night and my cousin and her hubby are bringing over sushi tonight.
The hubby and I took a small trip to Target for a few small things and I got a new dress:-) my husband says that in a few weeks when I'm all better he will take me to get some new swimsuits and clothes fr the new additions:-):-) :-) :-)
I'm feeling better just get tired SO easily and need to take naps here and there. I have my post op tomorrow and will update then. Take care ladies!

I had a great post op with my PS everything looks good and is healing well! One Lil 'probeml' is that my breasts are still a bit higher than shed like. She was not at all surprised by this. During surgery she said my specs were SO tight and my skin so taught that she had to use some muscle herself to get the mmplants in. True story:-) she looks over to my hubby and asks" geez how much dies your wife work out?". Hah! She gave me lots of massaging homework to bring them down,.
I also made a trip trip tpnwalmart and not some new bandini bras, a danskin front close and a tube top sexy49 raves about, thanks girl!









Hate to admit it but I am feeling the post op blues. No rhyme or reason, just do. I have everything in the world to be grateful for and I am! However I just feel down in the dumps. I will allow myslwf this feeling eat some dinner, tree take a shower and move on with my life.

Awww, the never ending emotional roller coaster! I've had my share of days just like that as well. I'm 4 weeks tomorrow and I still feel so dang tight it's so annoying. My PS gave me the go ahead to start massaging but he really didn't give me exact massaging techniques. What does your's have you doing? I feel like maybe I'm not doing something right. I mean they're softer but still tight. It still feels funny when lifting my arms.

Post OP day 24-

Boobies are achy, hubby and I are trying to wean me off the meds. I am taking half an oxcontin every 4hrs and half a Valium every 5 hrs.
Its is just hardly enough to take a bit of the edge off.in a few weeks I will be able be to take my motrin but I doubt I'll need it. Oh well, no pain no gain right?
It a nagging type of pain that makes me soooooooo tired. It makes me me feel pregnant tired, u moms know how that feels! Absolutely drained!
I have been lying on couch most of the day getting up to go to restroom and help my kids here and there. Still drink in my fresh veggies /fruit juices and doing my best to eat. I still haven much an appetite. Bloating and constipated still! Ugh.
I am massaging my beautiful breasts to get then to drop. My PS
Says they are doing wonderfully :-)

6 days no bowel movement, no bueno. I've prepared for this, bought my col ace( strtd taking 2 days b4 surgery), smooth move tea which I'm drinking now. My grilfrind came over last night and brought me some Seneqoyt(sp).
I've been taking my narcs and valiumn schedule along with WAY too much water and fresh veggies/pineapple juices. I'm bloated, uncomfortable and just want to $?¡±!!!!!
On a lighter note, apperently I am a riot on my meds and with mybpermission have allowed my hubby and my older kids to get some of my antics of video. I fall asleep every and anywhere. I have to be watched like a HAWK. My favorite place to fall asleep is the bathroom on the toilet.. My poor poor darling husband is doing such an amazing job holding the fort down I'm so blessed. He actually THANKS ME for doing this everyday on top of everything else.

I had two girlfriends visit today and while I adored their company I was left so tired and exhausted I slept for two hours and can easily sleep more. We r gonna go out for pizza and frozen yogurt for a fun kids night, they've been such sweethearts. O! I went tro Walmart and got a few bras rob get me thru these first few weeks so I'll get some pics up. Also, my right breast is taking its sweet time to drop just like Dr Tenley said. She said I have some ridiculously tight specs he he. Well, hope everyone is healing well and didn't fall asleep reading this long arise post. Aloha to all! Xxxxxoooo

My breasts are getting squishier but righty is still a bit high. I massage daily:-) :-) I love how they look in my current clothing, they look even better! A few tops didn't fit my new boobs so my 18 yr old came up on some nice quality clothe:-)

Loving my new breasts more and more each day as is my husband, he's afraid to get a little touch which is fine.,,,,,,for now;) these are for him to enjoy just as much as me.

Sorry! TMI?? :)
Omg I must have been SO high on oxycontin when I typed that previous post. With was I saying!??? Omg.. Ive been on half doses of oxy and valiums this week and this week end I will only take oxy in AM and PM. I haven't a clue how or why some people take these for recreation...to each his own

9 post op not sure if I'm just over doing it or what but my sternum is extremely painful again and so is the let side of breast and rib cage. I've been trying to ween off my oxy but Dr. On call did not recommended since it was so close postnsurgwy and my placement was a bit more difficult than the average pklacewment. I will see my PS in morning to put my mind at ease. I don't like the way they look now. Looks funny. They look in clothes so trhats good. My rightly is so much higher and much much firmer. I massage 4 x daily and hubby likes to help:-)

I'm just about a month PO and my sternum is still sore also. I'm sure it's because I'm pretty much back to doing all my normal activities (except weight lifting and high impact exercise) and I'm back to work. My right boob is sore a lot also but I'm right handed sooo! Sorry about the emotional roller coaster you are experiencing. I guess it's common and I've read a few girls experience this. I'm grateful I haven't been on that roller coaster! Hope you feel better soon!!

I was going to suggest the suppository thing too! I'm glad it's working. Don't you think it's funny how much work this fake boob thing is? I feel like all these years I've seen so many people with fake boobs and never imagined they went through weeks of misery to get there! Or even, best case scenario, weeks and weeks of pain med's, hideous post surgical bras, sports bras, oils, not pooping, one high boob, muscle twitches, incision itching.... And so much more! Who knew how tough these fake boobed women were?!?

Just got back from a walk in follow up with another Dr. From. My PS'S office. Sternum and left breast is just fine and looking great:-)
He went into explanation about the muscles run along the inner sides of my breasts,under and on the top of my rig cage which is were the pain was very sever. Very nice, thoughtful and polite.

Now, here is what Is MY fault is. Silly old me thought that 'heck, I've delivered 4 babies all natural, not even an aspirin.' I'm 3 days PO why don't I wean myself from my pain meds, I'll do one oxy in AM oxy in PM, will continue my Valium every 5 hrs. No biggie right? wRONG!!!!!!!

My my poor poor hubby had to watch his wife suffer. He nnever was on board with my idea but he know better than to even try to talk me out. He was just glad that it only took until tp2 am the first D's day. I woke up crying in desperate pain, it was heartbreaking to see his face like that. He gave me a full dose of oxycontin and held me until it kicked in rocking me.

So, the night of agonizing pain probably set back whatever healing had happed until I screwed it up with my wonder woman syndrome. Silly old me...
Thats my post day #10 feeling the best today since my surgery dispute my ridiculousness. I can shower, shave(need Lil help with armpits) some help dressing depending on what it is. No lifting babay yet! I'm doing laundry With help, dishes, light clean up when my husbans Not looking! My hubby is very carful with me and if he isn't helping with my recovery someone else is here in his plac lol.
My mom WS here one day 4, night 5 kids had soccer so my bff was her, day 6 he took day off again... u get the picture:-) I am Lil miss independent so any chance he gets to SPOIL me with "babying' me this way he loves it. I can see it in his face

2-3 weeks post op is when I started feeling like myself again. Hang in there, mama! xoxo
  • Reply
I hit the 2 weeks. I definitely am feeling more and more like myself everyday. Yesterday was my first day back to full time mama and it Was HARD. I just had the most difficult time keeping up. I'm not even back to all kids activities and PTO duties!! My husband saw may face my face as he came in door after work and I just let it all go. He is going to stay homes and work from home.
I feel like a wuss, not gonna lie. I have a WHOLE new respect for woman who undergo plastic surgery, especially multiple procedures.

Just a little over two weeks. Feeling MUCH better...

Just a little over two weeks. Feeling MUCH better and more like myself. I still tire easily, my sternum and upper ribs still sore and still get spasms here and there. Nothing a motrin and some frozen peas can't take care of.
I am still quite high, my hubby and oldest daughter totally can see the changes but all I see are huge ass tits pardon my french. I actually said to my husband maybe I should have gotten a smaller implant size.....he just rolled his eyes and reminded me to be patient. Its my right breast that is still(IMO) SO much noticeably larger and higher. The massage my PS just has me doing is to help push the implant down into the pocket. I do them religiously. My boobs are the FIRST thing to tell me when I'm overdoing it. They get so hard. I just sit down for a bit and if I'm home will use some frozen peas. Still get morning boob too...booboo:-)
Not much else I don't think. Oh! I was at Nordys yesterday and got sized...36 DD! I knew I would end up a D and I am still hoping I will. My guess after a few ,months is 34-36D. I hope u all are well and are happy with your new editions. These first two weeks have absolutely been a challenge but I'd do it all over again. I cried when I tried on a bikini top and filled it out and THEN some. All but one of my bikini tops do not fit. The one that "does" is super uncomfortable and I won't wear that out with my boobs hang in out like that with my kids in tow. I get enough attention as it is.
One more thing. Anyone shy about going into public now? I am!
I went on errand and wore my usual gym/yoga apparel and all I did was try to keep breasts covered with my long hair. My husband and I had a charity event to go to and I was so shy! I've gone from AA to DD(for now) and its a huge change.

You look great! I totally get what you mean about feeling self conscious, I've been barely an A all my life, and now in a low cut T shirt, I'm like wow, and want to cover up. It's so funny, but I'm all of a sudden shy...never occurred to me that would happen!

It looks like you d&f. They look amaZing! It's so weird how things work. I started with a c and am still in a D 36 and I got 397cc. But yes it is kinda weird that when I go out I try and cover up more. I think it's because I don't want people to think I got a boob job. Lol

My lefty ( the smaller boob) all of a sudden seems to be catching up with my bigger righty. It looked bigger this morning and figured its just swollen since I still get morning boob and occasional swelling.
Its also achy, not bad at all tho. I'm assuming this is all good and part of process so no complaints...I will be 3 weeks out Thursday may 9.
I cleaned my house yesterday, taking breaks here and there. Also did laundry but needed my daughter to help take the wet clothes out. We have top load machines. Took care of some work at kids school, did pick ups. After making dinner I was beat and quite sore. Needless to say I'm taking it a bit easier today. Just going to run a couple errands and try and clean up patio. It rained a little yesterday and things are soggy and there is debris.
Everyday I can do a bit more, I'm just slower. It gets better and better each day and I feel I rebound quicker from the annoying breaks I have to take to keep from overdoing it.
Have a lovely day ladies:-)

How're you feeling today? Getting easier yet? :) I'm sure not looking forward to the bloating :(
  • Reply
Much better, yes! In retrospect the bloating wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. No doubt, o was bloated but once I stopped taking the pain meds it started to go away dramatically. Just keep drinking water water and more water before and after surgery. It helps:-) I did something stupid today and took both my dogs for a small walk..just to see how it was. I knew I'd be fine with my princess Shi tzu who is about 12 lbs of diva. It was my 20 lb solid weeniepoo that was the problem. She kept pulling me and pulling me,she is stout like dachshund and fluffy like poodle. I ended up taking a Valium and it seemed to help. But then after school my 6 yr old made this rainbow hanging mobile for me and I just HAD to hand it up in my kitchen window sill. Climbing and pulling myself onto the counters. My brain says DO it! My body says oh hell no! Luckily I had all my "to do's" done so now I'm on the couch watching my boys play videogames. Definitely going to be ordering a pizza tonight:-)

I am 3 weeks out and am about 98% back to my normal self. I seemed to have picked up a cold during my first wk PO and I cannot seem to shake it. If not for that I would say I'm 100%. If I go overboard I my rib cage will start to ache and boobs harden, icing and just plain slowing down relieves it. I still wake up with slight morning boob but once o start moving it subsides quickly. Also, i have developed a small mondors cord under my right breast, it doesnt hurt to touch so id say its getting much better and soon will be gone.My breasts are getting squishier everyday and are continuing to drop thank goodness. Its been so lovely to be able to wear my strapless sundresses without a bra!! I go to see my PS tomrw morning:-)

That so exciting you're doing so well!! I was just thinking on my way home tonight that "third week's the charm!" You're looking great too!! Do you still have tape on your incision? Are you working out? Just asking since we're so close in dates, and I still feel nervous about a lot, even though I feel really good. And PS, What is a mondoors cord??
  • Reply
The tape just kinda fell off on its own, left last week and right just yestrdy. I am still putting my own surgical tape on my incisions. I called when the came off asking if there was anything special I should do and they said no. I mentioned they were still a bit raised and was told that if I wanted I could continue to tape them. My husband does it. They itch so the tape reminds me to NOT scratch:-) I am still pretty nervous about messing something up but the more comfortable I get with my boobs the better it seems. I am not back working out yet, hoping to get cleared tomrw for some cardio at least. I've been walking everyday for at least 15 min since post op day 9. Increasing time and pace as I feel stronger. Mondors cords appear when a blood vessel becomes inflamed. Relatively common and harmless. Mine hurt at first, I thought I " snapped" something. Then I remembered that another Realselfer had posted about hers....I LOVE this site. It has been solo helpful. I just left mine alone, u can take motrin or Advil to reduce inflammation but I would always check with Dr first.

Had my 3 wk post op and got the green light to resume my normal activities, but still listen to my body. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it basically. I can't wait to hit the gym. I have no intention of working my upper body though. I just don't feel comfortable with yet. I did some planks today and went thru a few vinyasas.....I don't want to use my upper body yet. My bottom half is another story:-)
I am still sitting pretty high especially my right so I will continue to do the one massage she showed me a couple times a day. I go back to see my Dr in 6 wks.

I have 2 kids 6 and 14 yr old. I tried on sizers again and they encouraged me to go with 450hp..but I may stick with 425. Thanks for your updates!

one month out!

Its been a month already since my BA. The time has gone by quickly and I am continuing to heal better everyday:-)
I bought a new bikini today and was so thrilled to buy a Large top. My girlfriend who is busty and a bit larger in size than me thought it was the funniest thing. " I've never in my life seen anyone in my life so excited to buy a large bikini top" she had joked. I've always bought xtra small/small bikini tops and didn't EVER fill them out and had to wear the waterproof cutlets. Now, to fit and fill a large bikini is thrilling to me:-)
I'll be sure to post a pic tomrw. I've been back to watching my nephew, a 25# 9 month old...I'm quite sore and tight from lifting him so I broke down and took a muscle relaxer, I'm kinda sleepy now.
Good night ladies xxxooo

6 week update..new pics:-)

I will be exactly six weeks post op tomrw. I feel great, back working out and my normal busy self.
I need to modify some of my poses and transitions during yoga, I can feel my pecs kind of pull on my implant and its weird. No pain at all and I'm sure once I gain more strength and flexibility it'll be gone, or I will just get used to it. I have NOT taken a weight lifting class or even done any chest specific exercise though.
My boobs are finally starting to drop and fluff up a bit thank goodness. I like the size (32/34 D) but feel that now that they are larger u can really see how much damage my kids have done to my nipples especially my left. That's the side they all preferred:-)
Everytime it bothers me I just think back to what my PS said" whatever your breasts look like before is exactly what they will look like after, just bigger". I can't agree more, for me it also made it more noticeable. I have such a teeny nipple to crease ratio too so that doesn't help. I wouldn't do anything different though, I appreciate it actually. I was afraid that I wouldn't get used to them but I absolutely have! The DO look like my before boobs only bigger:-)
I hope you all are continuing to heal well! Good luck to you ladies gearing up for your day!!

The comment you made "hate we your boobs looked like before..." That is SO true! I may need to post that on my review. My ps said the exact same line to me. I appreciated it so much knowing exactly what to expect with my outcome and (of course) he was dead on! :))

10 weeks + pics

Not much to update, my breasts continue to get softer and squishier everyday. I have my 2.5 month follow up this morning and everything looks great. I have the green light to do whatever I fancy:-) underwires are fine to wear too but I have no desire. My PS says its perfectly fine for me to go braless as my breast pockets are very strong and holding up very well. I prefer my Cami bras above all.
As for exercise, I can do whatever as long as I feel comfortable. She doesn't really advise any chest specific exercises though, Im fine with that, no pushups, chest presses etc.
All in all I feel great, my small breasts are a distant memory:-)

Couple more pics in clothing

I am really enjoying being able to throw on pretty much anything and not only fill it out but FEEL confident. I have bought several new bikinis because none of my old tops fit, so I felt no guilt :-)
My kids and I are in the water daily weather its in our pool or at the beach so having several swimsuits is a necessity.

3mos post op

I am just a few days shy of 3 mos post op and feel like my new boobs have been with me forever. They bounce,jiggle and are super squishy :-) its hard to imagine that with even more time they will get even softer!
I'm back to my everyday life and then some, my kids are out for summer so its always busy at my house..I am mostly doing my workouts in the pool since that's where we spend a lot of our days or biking to the beach.
I am more than happy with my breast size results and still find myself admiring them in my bikinis and am having so much fun filling out my strapless dresses:-) everything fits better!
My husband has really begun to enjoy them too. I was worried that he wouldn't like them and would find me less attractive with fake boobs, he's big on natural beauty. I don't wear makeup daily or color my hair and overall am pretty low maintenance so it really was a concern for me. He's been very supportive of my decision and by my side every appointment and my biggest cheerleader during those retched boobie blues! So finally, with the ggirls nice and settled he is not "afraid" of hurting me anymore. I'm super glad and relieved he is having as much fun with my boobs as I am, maybe even more:-)
I am so glad I did this for myself, I really really am.

I have to say that as much as I'm waffling on this procedure, following your story has made me more and more excited about the possibility of going for it. It's so awesome how happy you are with the outcome and that's exactly how I want to feel. Right now, the only things holding me back are fear of something going wrong and fear of regret after it's done. Your story is encouraging!

Thank u:-) :-) You look fantastic yourself! The size is perfect and look so great on your slender frame. I reeaally wanted mod plus but seeing your results with HP seriously set my mind at ease. I had to let go and just trust Dr. Lawton, so glad I did. I see u got the Latisse too! I had my choice of that or botox and I was like LATISSe please! The stuff really works and I've been using on almost two months. I've put it in my eyebrows too and they are filling in more and getting darker...yeah! I don't know if Dr Lawton told you or not but don't use the crappy applicators they come wwith. I use a thin eyeliner brush which is so much more precise and none goes to waste. So happy to hear from you! Take care xxxx

Almost 4 months PO:-)

I will be four months out this month. My breasts continue to soften and look better with each month that goes by. Its incredible. Ive started back running 3 x week and have zero problems. I'm totally fine with a sports bra, nothing fancy, my inexpensive target champions work just as great as my pricey Lululemon ones:-) I feel 110% back to normal. However, I have been experiencing neck and shoulder aches when I'm in a bikini top more than 4 hours. I have actually avoided being in a swimsuit this week because of it. IDK maybe I need to start wearing tops with thicker straps or something, I don't even " feel" the weight of the implants at all but I've never had this problem with my flattys. I have a few bandeau bikini tops but I reserve those for just hanging around our pool..I don't trust them at the beach! The discomfort subsides once out of swimsuit and my hubby is good about giving me massages:-)
I'm still very happy with my results and size.

Thank you krisscross:-) Im a relatively clean eater. My produce is organic as is our eggs,milk,butter. I do my best to only use hormone free cheeses and yogurt but the way my family enjoys cheese it gets pricey! I don't eat much meat at all, and if I do it is always organic, range, hormone free. Always wild caught fish too:-) everything in moderation and stay active. Walk kids to school, bike to do small errands around town. I love lifting weights and yoga too!

I just love coming back to your review and reading your updates! You do such a great job documenting your progress which is so helpful to many other women. The photo in the striped tank dress is so cute and sexy! I'll be curious to see if you think your breasts do a little more settling up to the 6 month mark. Take care!

7 month review :-)

Seven months have flown by! I'll try and keep it short and sweet. Hopefully I won't delete my post...again.
Okay so, not too many changes going on really. I've been consistently measuring and wearing a 34 D. I am still more than happy with my results, I haven't had any boob greed post surgery. If anything, I play my chest down which I find ironic. I mean, I'm not hiding my chest but I'm certainly not "showing them off". I don't care for the extra attention.
I get boob sweat now! Haha! Not too crazy about it but hey.....;)
My one and only gripe is that I am experiencing some neck and shoulder aches.If I wearing halter style tops and racerback bras. It isn't terrible just annoying. Immediate relief once I take off the top/bras off so that's good.
Still very happy about my decision to have breast augmentation, very happy with my surgeon. This was the perfect time in my life and I am glad I waited. Every time I get the urge for another baby I just think of my lovely new breasts. I told my husband new boobs or new baby. We have four already, so I went with boobs :-)
Thank you RealSelf for this wonderful community of incredible ladies. I am SO thankful I found RS. It kept me so sane during the crazy few weeks pre op.I poured incessantly over the many helpful reviews. Love love it here!

Here are a couple of topless(eek!)
They aren't perfect, but they are MINE. This is for the ladies to see and understand that whatever your breasts look like before surgery is what they will look like after.....just bigger. Some imperfections may even be exaggerated. If your nipples pointed outwards, they will STILL point that way. If your breasts are spread far apart implants will NOT automatically create the beautiful cleavage we desire. However, a great pushups bras will help :-)!
I read lots of posts with ladies not satisfied with the appearance of their breasts after implants when in actuality they look just great and very much like their befores.
I feel that great surgeons will bring this up and really give their patients a realistic idea of the potential outcome.
Hope this helps:-)

8 mos, deceiving boobies:-)

I was fresh out of the shower and caught a glimpse of myself from a mirror across the room. I was a teeny bit taken aback from what I saw. My breasts looked so small! They looked exactly like my pre surgery breasts while engorged to be honest. I wasn't upset, most ladies want to bigger,smaller or decide that implants all together are not got them. In my 8 mos post op, I have experienced none of the above.
Never in a million years did I think I would have "my" breasts back. My cute perfectly round orbs that were perfectly perky. Unfortunately, the implants did not resurrect my pre pregnancy/nursing nipples. Rosy and erect they no longer are but that's OKAY!
They don't quite feel like they used to but the last time I wore a 34D I was nursing. You gave those babies a squeeze and they gave YOU a surprise! Now my breasts squish and squash bigger than my hubbys face.*sorry babe.* I've always enjoyed my breasts being stimulated but over the years I have avoided it. That is DEFINITELY a pro that I didn't ever consider! My surgeon Dr.Lawton gave me back that confidence.
I realize that it hasn't been a year since my surgery. I'm still new to this but my experience has been wonderful.

Hi Ladies!
Hard to believe it's been a year already,April 18 to be exact.
I feel fantastic, so happy with my results :-)
I'm still wearing 34 D consistently and a M/L bikini. Before surgery was 32/34 A. I cannot believe how soft,squishy and bouncy they are!!!! I'm always jiggling them around at home, my husband thinks it's funny. He's enjoying my breasts almost as much as I do lol! I'm MUCH more frisky and he loves that I'm so happy.
I'll add a couple pics for now. I need to go and get the kids ready for school!
I sure hope all you RS ladies are doing well!!

You look awesome!!!! Great to see pics from 6-12 months. I'm currently one month out and we have really similar stats. I started at a 32/34 A. :) I love that you said they're so bouncy and squishy!!!! There is hope LOL!

This is a more accurate picture. I don't walk around in bikinis! I live in jeans and tanks.

Hi Sahmiam, Seeing your pictures here today gave me hope. I was really depressed today. I know I need to b patient with myself, my body isn't young anymore but there is always the little voice in the back of my head but what if does not work, if does not drop…well, thank you for posting your journey here I have to say I don't believe in coincidence. So glad I saw your page. You look amazing!!!!!

Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Tenley is everything I have ever wanted in a plastic surgeon and more. Not of only is she a talented doctor with credentials to back Back it up.Her entire staff is warm, so very sweet and accommodating.I do have to say that everyone, and I mean everyone in her office is absolutely gorgeous. No joke. I absolutely love my breast augmentation results with Dr.Tenley. Her consults are very thorough and never rushed. She took her time to explain both me and my husband which implants would be best for me. I love them! They are not so obviously overdone but rather leave one wondering " did she have her breasts done or was she born with that rockin bod"? Exactly the look I was going for! Thank you Dr. Tenley and staff! OK love you all!!! Aloha xxxxxxooooo
