So happy I got my ta-ta's done! 9 weeks post-op

I decided last January I wanted to fix my boobs. I have 2 children, and I nursed both of them for 2 years each. It really took its toll on my breasts, and I have been self conscious of them for a long time. They were very saggy 34 b. I am 5'5 130-135 pounds. I chose a plastic surgeon who had performed surgery on family and friends. I went to my first consult in Feb. of this year. I decided to schedule my surgery for Sept 13. I was very nervous and excited all at the same time. It was such a pleasant experience, I didn't have any nausea after coming out of surgery. I had 425 silicone under the muscle with a doughnut lift. I am very pleased with the outcome, as I am on my fifth day of recovery. I stopped taking narcotics on the 3rd day due to a migraines from the pills. I resumed my regular life at home on the fourth day. I had a pain pump (removed at home by my hubby on the 4th day) also. I am still pretty sore, and am going in for my 2nd post op in a couple days. I am excited to see how they look, but I feel impatient in this recovery period.

12 days post op and I am feeling good. I am on light duty....my husband has been great. The first 3-5 days are the hardest, but after that, it is definately a feeling of being on the mend. If anyone is wanting the referral to my ps, please message me, I do not want to give out his name without his consent. I am happy I went with the benelli vs the full lift. My top items to have while recovering;

1. Recliner
2. Bendy straws
3. blankets
4. help
5. Crackers
6. Dulcolax
7. pill box to keep track of the meds

I just wanted to add that I was super nervous and had a lot of anxiety right before my surgery. I had never been put under before, so I had no idea what to expect. It was soooo awesome once they gave me the relaxant in my iv and I actually had good feelings (like good dreams) while I was under. I came out of it easy, no nausea and if I knew then what I know now, I would have been more relaxed for sure. Recovery was a bit more than I anticipated. I don't like pain meds though, so I didn't take much.

Today I am 2 weeks post op. I am feeling good, I...

Today I am 2 weeks post op. I am feeling good, I cannot work out, and am feeling a little frustrated my regular clothes are tight right now. I am happy with my results, and have my 3rd post op appointment next week. I will keep the steri-strips on as long as needed, (it helps to heal the scar well) I went bra shopping yesterday, and bought all Bali bras in 34D. I was a 34B, so my size with 421 cc's increased me 2 cup sizes. I have read that the benelli lift (around the areola) doesn't do much for a lift, but I think it depends on the surgeon. M ps is fabulous!!!!!

It has been 4 weeks since I had my surgery. I am very pleased with my results. I can sleep on my side for a couple of hours now. I found the best bras-Bali no underwire, and the Bali Barely there bras are my favorite. They are like the genie bra but better material. I still have steri strips on my incisions, it is helping the scar heal nicely. I have been to 3 post op visits, and have been massaging the girls which seems to help them fee better. My right has dropped a bit more than my left, but it feels more sore than my left and I am assuming it is because I am left handed and use my left side more. My surgeon is amazing, his name is Dr. Michael Bohley in Portland Oregon. I was automatically enrolled for the Premier confidence warranty with my natrelle implants. This use to be $100.00 but now it is included with the implants. Sweet

It is 9 weeks post op. I am very happy that I had my boobs done, I had a periariolar lift with 420 silicone implants. We kept the nipples taped constantly to help heal the scars. I am going to start mederma soon. I really did underestimate the recovery period. I didn't take drugs past th 3rd day due to migraines from the pain pills. Muscle relaxers at night were the best. I have gained weight so now I am starting to work out pretty intensely to get fit. The best bras were the no underwire Bali bras and the Bali barely there bras. I still wear a bra at night, it just feels better. I am thankful for the support I had a long the way, and my plastic surgeon has been fabulous:)
Dr. Michael Bohley
