Breast Augmentation ! :) - Ontario, CA

My surgery is scheduled for Wednesday July 18th and I'm super excited :)
I went to two doctors before I decided to go with dr. Li in ontario, ca.
The first consult I went to was with dr. Hakeem. I knew a girl that got hers
done by him and hers turned out great. At the consult however I felt a little
bit rushed and uncomfortable. Just wasn't "the one" for me. I scheduled a
Consult with Dr. Li and the consult was great. He answered every question
In detail and made me feel comfortable and like he actually cared about me
and my end results.

My pre-op is scheduled for July 12th, going to go over final sizing and get all
My labs and stuff done. So far I've decided on 550cc's high profile silicone
Implants. I'm 25, 5'4", 140lbs, and a small B cup. I have one 6 year old daughter,
Didn't breast feed. I've always wanted bigger, fuller boobs with cleavage so
I'm super excited to finally get the procedure done. Can't wait to put the padded
Bras away! :)

My pre-op is this coming thursday. Going to decide...

My pre-op is this coming thursday. Going to decide my final size and get my labs drawn. Also paying for the rest of my balance in full. It'll be a little hard to hand over so much cash but I know I'll have some great boobs for it :)
I keep going back and forth between 500 and 550cc's. Scared of getting them too big. I know 50 cc's isn't that much of a difference though.. I'm feeling a little nervous but more excited. Well I will lost some more updates after my pre-op :)
And hopefully some before pics, wish I could through my iPhone, thats how I do all my Internet stuff mostly.

So I had my pre-op on Thursday (6/12). Got my before pics taken, all my prescriptions, final sizing, and the surgery bra to wear home on the surgery date. Decided on the 550's still, they said I'm going to lose 50cc once they are in. I brought in a regular tshirt and a scrub top to try the sizes with. Even tried on 500's since I'll be losing that 50. Definetly going to be big. Just hope not too big. Still really nervous about it and wondering if I should go with 500's?

It's now Monday morning and my surgery is this Wednesday! Can't believe it's soo soon! Definetly have butterflies in my tummy. Tomorrow they're going to call me and let me know what time to be at the surgery center. Excited and nervous!

So it's now Friday, had surgery at 830 on...

So it's now Friday, had surgery at 830 on Wednesday. Wednesday was not bad at all. I went to the surgery center, talked to dr Li again, he drew where the incisions and everything would be. Then anesthesia came abs introduced herself, she seemed very nice and answered all my questions about what meds
I was going to get, and about the intubation and everything. Sounded about right to me.
Then they wheeled me on the gurney to OR, I scooted over to the OR "bed". She said she's giving
Me my meds to go to sleep and it will burn a little but. I remember saying "my hand hurts, my hand hurts!" and that was it. Somehow woke up on my couch. Don't remember recovery or driving home or any of that.

So Wednesday's pain was about a 5 for
Most of the day, increased to about an 8 towards evening but was still bearable with the pain meds. Thursday was my post op appt and it went good. Pain was still about a 7-9 all
Day but bearable as long as you stay up on your pill schedule.
Valium every 8 and percocet every 4. It is
Now 6 am Friday morning. I set my alarm for
230 to take my Valium but slept through it. Then at 430
I woke up in horrible pain. Almost crying. Couldn't
Move my arms or get up at all. Woke up my little sister who's been taking car
Of me when everyone else is at work. She got
Me all my pills and some jell-o. Pain is now an 8 from the horrible 10 or more
It was when I first woke up. I will try to take some post op pics today a little later, they look decent for just being put in. That's it for now, feeling super drowsy and still in pain :( but still was worth it. Excited to have boobs :D

I am now 6 days post op and am loving my boobs...

I am now 6 days post op and am loving my boobs more and more every day :) putting up some pictures now.

Today was exactly 3 weeks post op. I Love my new boobs :) I have been taking pictures every few days or so and need to put them up. The stitches have all dissolved by now and the scars dont look too bad. I've been putting bio-oil on them for now, this Friday I'm making a trip down to the doctors office to buy the silicone cream they have.( The office is about an hour away) They still feel kind of hard but are way softer than they were. I'm only in pain when I first get up in the morning, about a 6-7 for a few minutes.
My nipples and area underneath are not really numb but have an odd sensation to them. Super happy with my results tho, hopefully put up a few more pics tomorrow in the am :)

Today is 7 weeks post op. I can now sleep...

Today is 7 weeks post op. I can now sleep comfortably on my side again :) even lay on my stomach for a bit. They still feel a little bit hard but definetly much softer than they did. I bought the silicone cream the dr's office had so I've been applying it twice a day to my scars. It's called bioCorneum advanced scar supervison in case anyone's wondering. Right now the scars are a pinkish white, they seem to be healing well though. That's really the only thing I worry about now. If I could go back in time I think I would have gone a little bit bigger, like 600. So glad i didn't downgrade last minute to the 500's. But overall I'm thrilled with my results and size :)
Dr. Li

Found through Internet browsing. The dr and the staff are great. They are always friendly and answered all of my millions of questions. Dr Li is great, super friendly and tells you "if you were my daughter.." really gives you the pros and cons of everything. He did his wifes breast augmentation twice. (she had saline first, then when they had to be replaced he did silicone). He was even telling me he has done some playmates because he can actually go through the nipple. Not cut around it But through the center! He is an amazing doctor, couldn't be happier at this point. Still only on my day 2 1/2 though so I will update once they drop more :)
