My Amazing Salines! 425R and 410L

Hello everyone! This is my first pre op post. As...

Hello everyone! This is my first pre op post. As of today am thirty days until my surgery! At my consultation my dr and I had discussed 330-380 saline high profile implants, but after looking around I'm going with 400cc. I have two babies ages 3 and 1 and have deflated into a 34A. Aim so edited and can't wait for my procedure!
Check out my reviews! I had my surgery done by him june 12th (which was last wednesday). I love my results and im doing great so far. I couldnt be happier about my decision and im so thankful that i chose a doctor who is incredible. I wanted to go from 34 a-bish to a 34d. so we went with 500cc moderate plus profile silicone. I looooveeee it! Good luck with your surgery. im confident that you will come out looking amazing too. I was so impressed that my scar in the crease will be so tiny. i was also impressed that the same day of the surgery i came home, looked at my boobs in my mirrior and they looked perfect. Even though they were high, swollen and sore, it looked as if it was hardly invasive! You will see what i mean in my pics. The day of surgery i took pics when i got home. Im so excited to get my stitches off next week :) ill most likely post pics of what the incision area looks like. What kind of incision are you doing?

That's amazing that we have the same ps! I loved Trevisani and knew I wanted him to do my surgery right off the bat. Your results are amazing I hope mine look just as good. I think it helps because I have two kids so my breast are ready to accommodate an implant. I am having the incision right under the breast.

My surgery is July 25th, so we will be healing together!!! Good luck. I hope all goes well.

Just Another Pre-op photo.

28 dayssss! The fear of me being "too big" is fading and the fear of recovery is rearing its ugly head. My husband is taking five days off, but I'm worried with our two kids I won't be able to handle them..... Guess only time will tell.

Thank you for starting your journey on RealSelf! Here is a list of items you may want to purchase and set up prior to your surgery. Glad to hear your husband can take time off to help you and the kiddos during your recovery. Looking forward to more updates!

Soo exciting!! My surgery date is one day before yours :)

JIST NOTICING MY SEVERYLY UNEVEN BOOBS!

Um, just now as I created a post and took a picture I noticed how far low my right breast hangs. It was always the bigger one, but I can't believe I never noticed until now!

I am freaking out and worried how the doctor will adjust this and make them look even. If at all possible! I am freaking out...
Mine look similar to yours. My righty is bigger and sags lower so its getting a Bellini lift and 25cc less than my left. Your doctor will get them as symmetric as possible. No worries. :)

Your surgeon will most likely use two different size implants to help with symmetry. Most women have some assemetry but I really think having kids and nursing makes it worse. Have you discussed this at your consultation? I myself have 400(R), 450(L) HP because mine were uneven as well:-)

Pre Op Today, a little Disappointed..

So went to my pre op today and was a little disappointed by what happened and wanted to get some feedback from you ladies! So literally all I did was meet with the patient coordinator and sign all my medical forms, and get blood drawn. I thought for sure I'd be meeting with the plastic surgeon again and confirming size and answering questions, but NONE of that happened. I was in and out in about twenty minutes!? Just a little confused and was wondering if any other ladies went through this or had a more through appointment....? I'm even more nervous that we have to confirm size right before the appointment. I had my consulatation back in FEBRUARY and with all the research I've been doing I'm not exactly 100% on the size choice.

So nervous.
That does seem odd to me for a pre-op. I don't have mine until the 10th but aren't you supposed to pick your final size and get directions all that jazz? I would call and ask for another appointment prior to surgery. You should be comfortable with your decision.

LESS THAN 72 HOURS!

Can't even believe I'm three days away from something I've been waiting forever for! I have my sports bras, prescriptions filled, laundry is done, house hold chores taken care of. I'm so excited and nervous and anxious all at the same time. I just want to be on the other side of it already! Come on time, pass faster!
The fear of recovery is rearing it's ugly head at me too. I have my surgery in Thursday the 18th, so in 48 hours. EEEK!!! I also have 2 kids, 5 and 2. My doc said I can do most everything just be careful. He said I do not need to reorganize my life around my boob job and if I need to lift my baby into his crib, I can. If I need to put dishes away in a high cabinet, I can. He just said to listen to my body and do what I can handle, but don't go out and have a tennis match the day after surgery. :) Since I'm having it Thursday, my hubby is taking that day off to be my help and driver, but then he's working Friday (he owns his own mechanic shop that is SLAMMED right now) and the kids will be babysat 3 houses down. So I'll be alone the next day, but he is just a phone call away and about 10 mins to get home. Then he'll be home Sat and Sun, and my sister in law is helping me Monday and Tuesday. I hope that's enough help! Cause I'm out of help come Wednesday! Good think my 5 year old is the best big brother and can do everything I ask of him with his little brother (except change a poopy diaper!! he can do pee though!) :) Let us know how the recovery goes for you cause I jumped on here specifically today to post about my worries and then I saw your post! I see you've done all your chores and whatnot to get ready to be out of commission...haha, I'm doing the same. Tomorrow is my day to do whatever laundry we've got, clean the house and organize food so left overs and easy meals are right there for my hubby. My Rx's are filled too. What pain meds did you get? My PS gave me Percocet 10s! Which I hear is the double strength kind. I'm kinda worried they will be too much and make me sick (which he gave me anti nausea), and it's also considered a highly addictive narcotic, so even though I don't have issues with addiction, it freaks me out to take something like that. Ugh, wondering if I should call and get Vicodin or something I've taken before that I know is OK with me? Anyway....so happy to read someone else is having the surgery same as me and worried like me too!!! Good luck!!!!! I'll be posting pics today or tomorrow on the BEFORE and then PLENTY of the after's because I know I'll be in love with them!!! Good luck!
Reply
If I were you I would cut the Percocet in half if you are woried about them being too strong after the first couple days or when the kids are with you. if you are prone to getting sick on them, take the phenergan or zofran(whatever he gave you for nausea) 15 minutes before you take the pain meds but just so you know phenergan can be very sedating.

Tomorrow Morning is the BIG DAY!

I'm sitting here waiting for the surgery confirmation phone call and the exact time to arrive. I am hoping it is first thing in the morning, first procedure of the day. That way I can be home early and just pass out all day.

I have so many worries about whether or not I'm going to remember tomorrow or how waking up will be. There's always a big nervousness with general anestsia and going under, the only positive is to me it'll seem like a minute or so... Which is nice.

Soooooo nervous. Ill post tomorrow when my husband and I arrive!
Thinking of you today! You'll do great and will join the big boobie club!! :) I'm at home resting and surprised at how much better I feel in just 1 day!

Good luck tomorrow! :) your gonna look awesome! It's gonna go by so fast! The hardest part is walking in to the room! Then it's all good from there!:)

don't be nervous about the surgery part. it goes so fast and you don't even remember a thing. when you wake up, they have you on a lot of pain meds so it doesn't even hurt. the pain will come later unfortunately. just remember to eat a little something with your pain meds every time. i didn't once and threw up and it did not feel good. maybe have someone buy you a big thing of pedialyte to drink. that really helped me feel better. best of luck!

I HAVE AMAZING BOOBIES!!!

So arrived at the center at 7am and put my gown on. I got to wear my shorts which I thought was cool... Met and anestisiologist and then the surgeon came in and drew lines on me and confirmed size. Told him to do whatever he thought looked best on me. They brought me in the back, put my IV in and within minutes I was out....

Next thing I know I woke up in the recovery room asking for water. Was hard to open my eyes. The surgeon came back and told me everything went very well and he ended up putting 420 in my right and 410 in my left (bigger than I requested) and said they looked perfect. They wheeled me out to the car and I took my pain medication and ate some crackers on the way home, all with my eyes closed.

By the time I got home I was awake enough to walk out of the car on my own and get into bed. And that's where my story ends because now I'm updating. I'm having pain even though I took the medication. A lot of it is on the side, which I think is weird.. But they look amazing and I could not be happier with the results. I was expecting a lot of Franken-boob, but they look kinda normal! It's amazing!
They look really good!!!!

They look amazing on you! Wow!

More pictures

Just thought if add more pictures. They are getting more swollen every hours that passes and the pain is increasing. Ouchies. Nothing I can't handle though. Been having to take my pain meds every 4 hours because pain rears its ugly head again. Have a feeling today is going to be a lot harder than yesterday... Owwwww.

Day 3 post op, I guess?

I'm counting day of surgery as day 1. I guess that's right. So I'm having the usual swelling and a little bit of frankenboob which makes me sad because mere hours after surgery they looked perfect!

I switched from my pain meds to Tylenol today because I have no pain in my right side, just in my left(the bigger cc one). I obviously don't have all my full motion back, but I'm starting to feel back to normal. I'm exciting to see the improvement and to watch my swelling go down with each passing day.

My post op appt isn't until Wednesday. I'm excited to see what Dr. trevisani thinks about my results so far.

Left hurts more than right?

Is it weird that my left hurts way more than my right? I have more function in my right arm and its no as painful when I sit up, compared to my left side. I'm deathly afraid of developing an infection and I'm hoping this isnt a sign. Any other feedback on this would be greatly appreciated.

My left hurt way more than my right and took longer o heal

Your three day pictures are great! Maybe ask your Dr's office about the pain, do you have a person that you were connected with there? I'm thinking it is still early days in your recovery so you might want to see how you feel tomorrow and go from there. Happy healing!

Really worried my left isn't healing properly (pic)

My left breast has been very sore ever since the surgery. I have 425cc saline on left and 410 cc saline on right. The right one is doing just fine. I don't really ice it anymore. Have almost full motion back and it doesn't bother me much. My left side is a different story. It is always so painful and I'm icing constantly. If it wasn't for my left side, I'd be off pain men's by now. I'm worried that they'll be uneven and my left one wont look right. Is this normal? Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

One week post op today & actually feeling like myself again!

Just woke up, with the morning boob of course, but was able to make the kids breakfast and make myself coffee. I even got dressed and it wasn't even 8am yet! Haha I guess I woke up on the good side of the bed today because I'm feeling like myself again. I have the urge to seriously clean this house after one week of no special mommy touch, but I think I'll just do a little light cleaning instead of a huge over haul. I am so happy I did it and even though it was and still is a struggle, they look amazing!

My progression collage

Made a progression collage to show the change in the first week. Pretty cool to look at!
Love the progression pic!

I'm 8 days out and was thinking exactly like you....other than this morning boob I'm feeling great today! I should get up and start cleaning and laundry! Haha...they look great and that progression collage you made rreally it neat! Happy continued healing!

Day 9, doing fine!

Actually put make up on left the house and got dressed today! I feel awesome. Bought a 34 C wireless support bra today. I'm sure my size with change.. Might be able to fit into a 34 D. So happy!
My BA is Aug 9th with Trevisani too! I'm basically your same stats, and was wondering if I should go 350! At first he said 275, and then at pre-op, I also was disappointed that I didn't get to see him! So did you decide with Trevisani to go 425 and 410 the day OF surgery?? I'm so nervous on how big I wanna go!!
Reply
I told him as he was drawing the markings on me to go full 400, but when I woke up and he said he put in 425 and 410 I was shocked! Honestly, when you go under its up to him to decide what looks best on your body. I'm glad he sized me, cause honestly, I'm not a plastic surgeon and he does these all the time, so he knows best! Leave it up to him and I promise you won't be disappointed. I thought 400 was my max and anything over would be too big, but they fit perfectly to my body!
Reply
So true!! I'll just tell him what I want the day of surgery, and let him do his magic!! lol I'm such a productive person, so the fact that I won't be able to move annoys me!! I want to move, clean, exercise, etc! The nurse said I shouldn't move my arms above my head like to put on clothes and whatnot for like, a week. Is that how you were?

12 Days

Day 12 post op. Still waking up with morning boob, but definitely not as bad. Getting my stitches out on Friday! And everyday they look more symmetrical and pretty :) I love them so much!
You look AMAZING!!! How did you decide between saline and silicone?
Reply
Honestly, I felt more comfortable with having an obvious rupture with saline then having to get an X-ray or ultrasound to find out if there is a rupture with silicone. And with saline, it isn't as much of a rush to replace if it ruptures compared to silicone and I don't want to feel like I need to keep an extra few thousand in the bank just incase something goes wrong.
Reply
I felt the same way but the first PS that I went to really wanted me to get silicone, He didn't have saline in his office for me to compare. He does great work but I am going to go to one more consult before I decide. But you look amazing!!

Two weeks Post Op!

Can't believe I've made it to the two week mark... The pain for the most part is okay, though my nipples are still super sensitive and morning boob is still not okay. Had my stitches removed yesterday and was amazed at my scar. They're as perfectly placed and so small as they could be! Hope everyone out there is doing just as well!
             nice

You look fantastic! :)

What about space in between the boobs? They eventually go down and together each day right? That's my biggest fear. Is having boobs with a big gap in between :(

Week Three

They're looking more natural every day. They're actually starting to jiggle a little! You can feel my natural boob ontop and the implant way under the bottom. It's kinda cool. I love them so much. I have no pain whatsoever, not even twinges. Morning boob is still here, but it's mostly just feeling stiff instead of pain. Can't believe how fast this is flying! Ill update next week! Please let me know how all you are doing!! Xoxoxo
hi! just curious how much you paid for Dr. Trevisani and how his bed manners were?

Looking great

Great review. I have uneven breasts and it wasn't until I started going to consults and the surgeons pointing it out that made me soooo self conscious and depressed about it! How did your surgeon work out how to best even them out? I'm about 50-100 difference, hoping to get it right and be symmetrical,

1 year post!

I'm a couple days away from my 1 year boob-aversary! I can't even believe it! I love them and even though they're no perfect, it's a huge improvement from where they were. I knew going into this my right boob was hanging a little lower than my left, due to pregnancy, and being lopsided my whole life. Dr. Jon adjusted the size in each to make up for the size difference, but forewarned me they wouldn't be early even. They have officially settled into at 34D/DD depending. I do have a minuscule amount of rippling on the side when I bend over, but you can barely see it. No regrets! And I will absolutely go back to Dr. Jon when I need them changed out!
Wow! Right from the start they looked great! In all honesty, I think a little asymmetry is what makes them look more "natural". Thanks for sharing!
Reply
They look wonderful...I just recently had them done by Dr. Jon as well and had a great experience (most similar to what you've described). I'm 3 weeks post op and still tight and a little high so I'm excited to get the healing process going and start swimming again. I also have a little one so it's been a bit of a struggle for me as well. How long did it take for yours to drop and fluff and did u get silicone or saline?
Reply
I would definitely say a couple months.... Maybe 3 or so. They pretty much looked like they were in a push-up bra constantly for a while. I have salines.
