32/34 DD, Terrified of Surgery and Needles! - Philadelphia, PA

I am 20 years old about 5' 4" and 115 pounds and I am a 32/34 DD. I already had my first (of 2) pre-op appointments and it went really well. The doctor is amazing and he made me feel really comfortable about my surgery. I am getting the lollipop incisions which is just around the nipple with one cut straight down rather than the full anchor incisions.

This sounds great on paper-- except I am absolutely terrified of needles and surgery. I have been dealing with the fear since I was very young because I had an autoimmune disease which caused me to spend a great deal of time in the hospital and around needles. I am more worried about the actual day of surgery than I am for the recovery at all!

I am hoping to be a full b cup when I am done and can't wait for the new boobs!

So nervous today! I am definitely going to go...

So nervous today! I am definitely going to go through with it but I could use some opinions on my pictures and some encouraging words/advice! Anything I definitely need to buy? Or any other advice about anxiety?

Thanks for everyone who posted on my review! All...

Thanks for everyone who posted on my review! All of your posts have been so helpful and reassuring. At this point I am just ready for the day to be here. I have my final pre-op appointment on wednesday and I'm not quite sure what I should be asking the PS. Does anyone have any suggestions for questions? Or questions you had/wish you would have asked before the surgery?

Can't wait for this to all be over!!

So today I am super nervous! Definitely questioning my decision to do this. I have my final pre-op appointment tomorrow so hopefully I will get some questions answered and some reassurance. I am hoping to get some type of anti-anxiety medication to use for the day before and day of my surgery. Has anyone used anything to help them deal with their anxiety/nerves?

Hope you are all doing well.

I went to my final pre-op appointment and I feel much better. I was given Vallium for the day of the surgery as well as the night before so my severe anxiety. I am allowed to take it with a tiny sip of water the day of which is a relief. They gave me some pre-surgery wipes for the day before and day of the surgery to use on my chest and stomach just a precaution.

I'm still pretty nervous but I am ready for the day to be here and the surgery to be over! I can't wait for my smaller boobs and pain-free shoulders and back.

Has anyone used any natural/homeopathic medications after surgery? I bought a few today and wanted to know if anyone had used any and had any luck

Today I had my final pre-op blood tests at the...

Today I had my final pre-op blood tests at the hospital. I HATE needles but it actually wasn't bad at all. However, I have been having some serious anxiety since I got home. I think being in the hospital where I will be getting surgery really made it real!

I am gathering a list of final things I need to get. So far I already got some homeopathic medications, all my blood tests, my medications, and.. extra pillows. Not sure what else I need to get. Any suggestions?

Also, what should I prepare for the day of the surgery?

So tomorrow is finally the big surgery day! I'm...

So tomorrow is finally the big surgery day! I'm really nervous but also super excited. I can't wait for the surgery to be over and have my new boobs!

Just got the call that I have to be there at 6 am (ugh early morning) and my surgery is at 730! At least I get it over early in the day. But I am so nervous ah!!!! I hate hospitals but I have some medication that I'll take tonight and tomorrow morning that will help me! Next time I post I probably will be done the surgery so wish me luck!

Just got home from the surgery! It was not bad at all!!!

I woke up so easily from the anesthesia and the pain is pretty minimal. The car ride back was tough because of the bumpy roads but I honestly do not feel bad at all right now and I'm not even on any strong pain medications.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I made it and thanks for the great support! I will update pictures on friday when I can take the surgical bra off!

I updated pictures from today (sunday). Still bruising and swelling but feel much better!

I've been pretty sore and bruised today and yesterday but it is so manageable. It's probably just because I've been a bit more active compared to the first few days.

For those of you who asked who my doctor is-- his name is Dr. Cross and he works at Deme plastic surgery. He is amazing and I am so happy with my results. The pictures don't do it justice because they were taken from a low angle looking up on my computer so they are even better in person. I highly, highly recommend him!

It has been a while since I posted so I decided to update everyone on how I am doing! I have had minimal pain from the beginning and have healed so quickly! I am big on homeopathic and natural medication and have been eating a very healthy diet and it has definitely helped me heal.

I am currently a medium to small sized c cup. I have not had any complications so far other than a bit more swelling on the right side compared to the left.

I have just started using silicone strips to help with scars which hopefully will reduce the appearance.

I will post new pictures soon!
