Ready to Feel Comfortable in a Bathing Suit! - Ohio

I am having BA on Feb. 23rd. I am 5'4"...

I am having BA on Feb. 23rd. I am 5'4" and 100ish lbs. I have 2 children. An 8 year old little girl and a 5 month old little boy. Both were breastfed for the first 3 months. I am currently a 32 A (that may be an exageration). I am having 325cc Smooth round Mentor Saline implants filled to 350cc placed subpectorally. For the last few weeks I have soooo anxious and scared about the surgery. Now, after reading about recovery from all the ladies on here I am so excited! I would love to hear any recovery tips ect. from you ladies that have been down this road. I so can't wait to finally be comfortable in a bathing suit!

I am 1 day post op! I am feeling great! My surgery went great. The surgical facility treated me like a queen. I did not feel anxious like I had anticipated. I woke up from surgery and the first thing I said was "28 years and I finally have boobies". It cracked my husband up. I am sore but would not describe the sensation as pain at all. It feels like I did 100 push ups then my milk came in for all those women that have had children. I have only taken the surgical bra off a couple of times, but so far I am loving what I see. The only thing I would change at this point is to have had this done many years ago! I will be posting before and after pictures Sunday when I take my marcaine pump out. I ended up getting 300cc saline, round, moderate profile implants placed under the muscle my left is filled to 325cc and my right is filled to 338cc.

I am now 10 days post op and couldn't feel better!...

I am now 10 days post op and couldn't feel better! I have NO pain, my incisions are healing nicely, and my breasts look great! I am so thrilled with the results. They are so much softer than I thought they would be. I spent an hour or so tonight trying on all the clothes that I always hated because of my flat chest. I loved the way each and every thing looked on me. I finally feel complete. I know that may sound shallow, but my flat chest was a source of concern for me for so long. I could never just accept the fact that I was flat chested. I would wear padded bras, heck who am I kidding I would layer them : ) It feels so liberating to be sitting here in a tank top with no bra and not feel uncomfortable. I am so incredibly glad that I did this! I am now fully able to care for my 5 month old baby on my own, drive and do just about everything I did before my procedure. I have taken no pain meds since the second day post op. I had my first post op appointment with my PS 2 days ago. He showed me the massage techniques to help reduce capsular contracture.

I am now 4 weeks post op and loving life! I am feeling great, no pain at all. I removed the last of the steri strips from my incision a week ago and the scarring isn't bad at all. I am using Mederma on them daily to help the fade a little quicker. I have full range of motion in both arms and full strength. I was fitted for a bra last week and to my surprise I am a 30-32 D. My worst fear was being a D cup, but they really don't look that big and I am thrilled with them. I have been doing the massage suggested by my PS 3-4 times a day and they have softened up quite a bit. My right is still up a little higher than my left at this point. My husband says he can't tell, but I can. I am sure that will pass in time. I love my new chest and all the new clothes I have gotten to go with them. Yesterday I had on a bathing suit for the first time! I have NEVER felt so comfortable in my own skin. No regrets from this gal!
Dr. Christopher Reeder

Dr. Reeder was wonderful! His bedside manner was great. He did a great job talking to both myself and my husband. His office staff has taken tons of time with me and I never felt rushed. He put all my worries to rest. I would recommend him to anyone! My only concern is long wait times for appointments.
