36 Yr Old Mom, Paramus, NJ

Im finally doing something I've wanted my whole...

Im finally doing something I've wanted my whole life and can't believe it's 12 days away. I'm 5'10", 145 lbs, small B. I'm getting 450cc under the muscle with no pain meds and awake. I have found so much help here and need the continued support. I went to the consultation where I decided on 425cc. Afret the pre op appointment I decided to go with 450cc. The girls at the office were awesome with suggestions and showed me what it will look like since it's under the muscle. They recommend to go bigger since "boob envy" is sometimes an issue. I've always told my boyfriend that 100 cc would even do the trick...haha!. That just shows my desperation to have larger boobies! I'm so mixed with emotions mostly because I'm so nervous. All the help I can get would be awesome!!

Moderate plus 450 cc...8 days and a wake up

So, I found out I'm getting moderate plus implants. Can anyone tell me what that means?

1 MORE WEEK.....

I Can't believe it's almost here. I talked to the surgery center yesterday about when to be there...9 am. I'm having more excitement now that it's pretty close, just some anxiety in the morning. I feel better every time I talk to the staff and stay away from the internet. I found out I'm getting moderate silicone implants. I see many of you got high profile. Does anyone know the difference? ?

4 more days.....

I am starting to question if I am having the right implants put in. I am narrow with not much breast tissue and doing 450cc mod. Submuscular and I don't know how they are going to fit in there. I guess I'll find out.

IT'S THE BIG DAY!!

T minus 3 hours until my boobies. I'm a little nervous, but ready. I will keep you all posted. Thanks for the thoughts and encouragement these past few weeks. See you on the other side.....

1 days post op

Why does this sight keep erasing my post every time I write it. Hopefully this one works. Surgery went awesome and today I feel really good. Here's the pic. Will.post more later.

3 days post op...feel great!!

Day 3 and I feel really good. I'm a little tight under my arms and my back hurts from sleeping upwards. I've only taken tylenol and that got rid of the pain. The right one is starting to drop but the left is a little behind. I love them! Dr. Gartner and his staff are, by far, the best at what they do!!!

4 days post op..

I feel great. No pain just can't "go". What should I do?? Nothing is working and now I just look pregnant. Bumming me out...but my boobs are perfect. Someone , anyone, HELP! !

BLOATED! !!

Has anyone experienced water retention and bloating?? I feel like I'm pregnant. I finally went to the bathroom but now it's the bloating driving me crazy. I am super grateful though being that I went back to work and have no pain at all. I just want to look sexy and instead i look like I belong in a Michelin commercial..someone help!!

5 days post op

Bloating almost gone, pooped on the potty like a big girl, and boobs dropping...I think. Have a great day ladies!!!

1 week post op

I had my appointment today and everything is great. I don't have to wear a strap, incisions are great, and dropping naturally. I am so happy with my results!!!

12 days post op

Just a pic for today...

2 weeks tomorrow..

Tomorrow will make 2 weeks since my surgery. They appear to be dropping and everyone was soooo right about the roller coaster...I love them, oh no what did I do, are they too big, oh no...too small..haha! I've felt and thought it all. I miss wearing a bra, but LOVE having boobs!! I'm really grateful for everyone's advice and support on here! That's it for now..

I need some help...

I woke up this morning and my boobs feel more tight than they have felt this past week. There's no pain, just tightness. Is this normal 2 weeks out? The tightness is similar, not as bad, to the first week. Can someone give me some advice? Should I call the doc?

It used to be a tie...

Well, they were doping together but it looks as if lefty fell behind. She always was the small one. I will be 3 weeks tomorrow and feel good. I miss the gym and can't wait to buy new bras. I have my second appointment this Friday and I think that's when I start my messages as well. I just hope this left boob catches up!

Dropping...not doping....ugh auto correct

I hope they aren't doping...

3 weeks post...BRA SHOPPING!!

I had my 3 week post op today and have been cleared for life...gym, bras, sleeping on my side, picking up my daughter...all the good things in life! I can't wait to see a bra fit without super padding and on the last hook!!

Need help!!

I need someone's opinion. I started my massages on friday. Right after I did the first one, I heard a weird pop/tear. There was no pain, just an awkward feeling. I stopped and went about my day. On Saturday I started having pain and now I still have it 3 days later. It's not constant, only if I move a certain way. Did I do something to myself? Oh and I called the Dr. and he said leave it alone for a few days. I just needed other opinions also..

1 month post op

Today is honestly the first day my boobs feel like I was born with them. I love them and the feeling that they should be bigger is gone. Thank you Dr. Gartner!!!

Perfect boobs thanks to the perfect Dr.!!

1 and a half months post op and I'm doing really well. Dr. Gartner really is the best at what he does. I can't believe how real they feel and look. I am so grateful fo my recovery and finally feeling confident in clothes! I am a 34 D and proud of it. Thanks to everyone here for all the help!#

Almost 3 months post op

I have written 3 updates and t he y don't post so I hope this one does. I am almost 3 months post op and completely back to normal. My boobs have dropped and fluffed quite a bit and I love how they look. The feeling that I should have gone bigger is fading away also. I can't imagine them lookin any better but they do say that the final results are around 9 months. They feel completely real and on some days I can't believe they are on my body. I am so grateful for Dr. Gartner and the work he did. I am going to see him in a week for possibly more work...laser possibly. Here are some pics...I hope they come through!
Paramus Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Gartner and his staff were more than I could ask for. There was no wait time and the awake procedure was incredible. I highly recommend it to anyone. I was able to communicate during the whole thing and was never in any pain. I was able to leave 15 minutes after surgery feeling great. My breasts look amazing for being 1 day post op. He is the best!!!!
