Today my bruises are still very yellow/brown. I feel like a banana. I also have some darker bruises appearing, which seems weird to me, but from what I have googled is all very normal. I cannot wait to see the size of my nipples and how my breasts look without the steri-strips, I want them to fall off already! I have been shopping for pasties! I have never had small enough nipples or cute enough boobs to wear pasties, so by golly I am buying me some! LOL :)
Im getting really anxious for my implants, after seeing how great my lift is I cant even imagine how amazing my implants will look. I started looking at some new swimsuits for the summer time.
I will probably be waiting until Spring break in March to get my implants, so from Jan to March I am going to work on firming up my body and toning everything so that when my implants are in my whole body will be just how I want it :)
I hope everyone is doing well!

Today is day 12 post-op. Most of my steristrips have come off, and my incisions appear to be healing well. :)

Today is 2 weeks post-op. Still have some bruising, and my left breast has left some yellow discharge on my bra (Dr's staff said this was normal and is old blood that may come out during healing). My incisions are all healing really nicely, I only have one teeny tiny hole on my right breast where the vertical incision meets the horizontal incision under my breast, but it is healing.
In my picture it looks kinda like my breasts are different sizes, but in person they are absolutely PERFECT! The nipples are the same and both my breasts look nearly identical.
I am so happy about getting my procedure and encourage anyone who is thinking about it to get it done once you find a surgeon who is experienced with lifts that can give you the result you want.

I have my first post-op today with Dr. Murphy. Since I got my surgery around christmas/New Years he was out of the office and busy since then.
All of my steri-strips have come off and I let my PS office know, they said to be gentle on them and they would be putting more on at my appointment today. What a downer, I hate steri-strips lol.
My incisions seem to be healing nicely, but I am worried about them not healing all the way. I am petrified of necrosis!
So it has been about 5.5 weeks since surgery. My...
So it has been about 5.5 weeks since surgery. My healing has gone fairly smoothly.
I have had one real follow up and at that appointment my PS told me I still had some swelling and that he wanted to see me in another month and we would talk about implants and sizing. He also instructed me to continue wearing paper tape (you can get it pretty much anywhere) until I begin scar therapy. He said if you wear the tape 24/7 then in will hold the scars flat and help prevent the scar spreading out.
Around 4 weeks post-op I took the tape off my incision and there was yellow drainage from a small hole and a bright green scab. I was really worried about infection and my PS saw me the following day. He said it was very normal because sometimes the dissovable stitches poke through the skin and cause draining, but there was no infection. He dug around in the tiny hole and cut out all the stitches poking out and instructed me to only keep a band-aid over the hole until it scabbed over.
The hole is now closed up and I do not have any scabs.
I wear a bra 24/7 except for when I shower. My PS told me I can wear any bra I am comfortable in. I usually wear a sports bra, and when I go out or to work I wear my Victorias Secret Bombshell push-up (Adds 2 cup sizes).
I have a follow-up on Feb 8th and we will be talking about my implants and I will get my silicone strips for scar therapy. :)
Everyone LOVES my new firm breasts. I am very happy I have gone through with it.
So tomorrow will be 7 weeks since my surgery, and...
So tomorrow will be 7 weeks since my surgery, and everything has been going smoothly.
I had my second follow-up with Dr. Murphy today and he was very happy with my progress. We had my consult for implants, I told him I would like to be a DD. We decided on silicone memory-gels, and he believes somewhere between 600-750 cc will get me to where I want to be. He does not want to go much bigger otherwise they would be just too big for my body.
I set the date for March 22nd (exactly 3 months after my lift). I was quoted $5,860 for the implants. Silicone costs $900 more than the saline, but they are running a promotion that with the gels you either get 25 units of botox or latisse for you and a friend, and I will get another $145 spa package also.
I am excited :)

Today is 8 weeks post-op :) Only 1 month, 6 days until I have my augmentation.
Not too much to report on my lift, my scars are not awful. I would say the one in the crease of my breast is the darkest, but it still isn't that bad.
The picture I have today is my new breasts in my swim suit :) I am very happy with how they look, and I cant wait to see how I will look in a swim suit once I get my implants.
