Let me first start by saying that I am 24 years old, 5' 2", 120 pounds and I don't have any children. I am currently a 34 A, or 32 B depending on the bra. I have always been insecure with my breast size and I also have a hard time finding clothing that fits. Because of this, all of my bras are push-up bras and all of my swimming suits are padded. For the longest time, it was really hard for me to be comfortable with my boyfriend (if you catch my drift..) I have wanted a breast augmentation ever since I can remember. Within the past year, I have graduated from grad school and started my career, so I now feel that I am ready for this life changing endeavor (financially and mentally). Back in February I had my first consultation with my surgeon. A week later, I went in for my second consultation and measurements. I decided to go with silicone implants, placed under the muscle. I told my surgeon I desired a full B or small C and with my measurements, he said that 350 cc was the maximum he would recommend of putting in me. And because of my narrow chest, he recommended a high profile shape. I believe that the style we ended up choosing was Natrelle Style 20 350 cc. Two days ago I went back in for my history and physical appointment in which I was given all of the directions for the day of surgery, anesthesia information, recovery etc. My surgery is scheduled for April 4th! I am so excited and anxious, but also a little nervous because I have never had any type of surgery before. I am worried about the pain/discomfort post-op and how my new additions are going to turn out..

A few hours later I woke up and took more pain meds and then fell back to sleep. The next time I woke up I felt a lot better, the pain had gone away from my sternum area and is now in my side boob areas below my boobs by my ribs. I did end up puking this time when I tried to eat some crackers in order to take more meds. Puking made me feel a lot better and made me not look so pale anymore. I have been up walking around, going to the bathroom alone etc. I need help opening my pill bottles but that's about it! I am sore but it is tolerable to me.
So I find myself looking in the bathroom mirror everytime I wake up to make sure the girls are still here haha :) and I must say that I am in love with them so far! They are a little wide and very hard but not too high in my opinion. Oh yeah I got the inframammary incision and 325 cc high profile silicone.
Well I hope tomorrow (day 2) isn't as bad as others say. It's back to bed for me because I can only stay awake for so long at a time. I'll post some pictures that I took tonight on my phone on here tomorrow because it doesn't have an upload option. Goodnight all and thanks again for the support!
Sorry for the poor lighting of the photos I...

My boobs have dropped a little since day one, hence this is why the bottoms are hurting now I think. My nipple/areola area is still kinda puffy, swollen, and numb. I feel like the bottom part of my boobs have itchy sensations sometimes but I don't really know where to itch.. Also I am posting a photo of a weird spongy type lump at the bottom of my cleavage line area.. just wondering if you think this is just swelling or what? I would think that if it was pooled blood that it would be dark purple in color? Please comment and let me know what you think..

A few days ago, as my boobs have started to get softer, I realized that in my cleavage area my right inner boob has a dent/ripple/crease whatever you want to call it. I would post a picture but I am doing this from my phone at the moment. Anyways it really freaked me out because I was worried that I need a corrective surgery already. So I asked my PS about it today and he said its part of my pectorals muscle fibers showing through from where they dissected my muscle to do the dual plane implant placement... He said to just give it time and see what happens. I think he called it an animation deformity. He also said that he didn't think a corrective surgery would fix it. He also said its a minor imperfection and that aesthetically everything else is great-symmetry, nipple alignment, etc. BUT I still notice it and it is not "minor" to me! I just hope when my right boob drops more and my muscles relax that it goes away. It will be totally noticeable in swimsuits but not in bras.. I need patience!
Other than that... Everything else is good. My skin and nipples are still a little sensitive to touch but at least I have feeling! I have to wear a sports bar type bra for the next two and a half months (3 months total). I get cleared to start working out again next week.. Oh and I got my steri strips removed finally and the incisions look good, just light pink lines. I'll post pictures tomorrow of the incisions and of my "dent."
Hope everyone else is healing well and loving their results! :)
