I am scheduled to have BA on August 1st. I know it is normal to feel some anxiety and for the most part I am hopeful I will like the outcome. I have never had any plastic surgery or any procedures whatsoever, don't even have pierced ears, so this it huge for me (no pun intended). I goal is to restore volume. I always had D cups but from working out and resculpting my body I have shrunk to B cups.
I need to know, how much and when do I start the Arnica 30c and the Boswellia supplements, if anyone can tell me? Thanks so much.
I will add before and after pics later.
Adding two 'before' pictures. Four days until...

the breast fold incision.
If anyone told me I would be posting naked pics of my boobs on the internet, I would
have said they are crazy! I am the girl at a hot-tub party that keeps all her clothes on and is
sitting on the edge with only my feet in while everyone else is naked.
But RealSelf has been such a great source of support and information so I want others to be
helped as I have.
The bra they put me in after the surgery is super uncomfortable-in these 'after' pics, it looks like
I had a lift but the marks are from that bra. Also, the surgeon's markings are still on me and make
me look like either I have bad blood vessels or tattoos.
I am finding I can do most everything by squatting- if you have time b/4 your surgery, do as many squats
and lunges as possible, and sit-ups, too. This will all help after the surgery.
Today is a full 3 days since the surgery. Very...

Just eating little bits of healthy foods, reading (I don't watch tv), and sleeping, walk a little bit, repeat. Head is in a good place except extremely and uncomfortably constipated even though I have been taking stool softeners, aloe vera pills and even an enema. Nothing is moving and my tummy is painfully distended.
Today is day 5 since the surgery. I have only...

My breasts look the worst they have since the surgery because of swelling and bruising. They look almost 'boxy'- I know this will pass eventually. Posting a new picture showing the odd shape from the swelling as well as the bruising. Hope it doesn't take two months for this swelling to go down? They are really firm to the touch, kind of hard.
Still struggling with constipation, very distended abdomen even though I have taken the stool softeners and aloe vera all along.
Today is one week since surgery and yesterday I...

Still taking Bromelain and Boswellia for swelling and Arnica tabs and gel, rub the gel in when I do the massage/exercises. The steri tape is still on the incisions, supposed to leave them on until they fall off. Go back next week for my second post-op. Everything going well! Not an easy surgery but for me, well worth it. Hope my story can help someone as so many on here have helped me. Thanks to RealSelf for a great forum!
