New Puppies! - Richmond, VA

Love that i found this site last night and will...

love that i found this site last night and will spend more time reading this afternoon. has already made me feel better about my decision. just going through the process of healing right now and feel kind of rushed by my PS when i ask questions. i only told my husband and one friend so pretty much driving him crazy! haha! my first Post Op was yesterday (surgery was friday) and was told i can massage them to soften the top and bottom. was also told if they drop and the nipples are pointed downward, i'll need a lift. so wasn't too happy about that and am not going to subject myself to another surgery! before surgery i told the PS over and over that i am very active, have 3 big dogs that i walk and train and did not want "boobs" to slow me down but wanted a fuller look and be more comfortable in bathing suit and clothes without all the padding. i'm a young 53 year old, weigh 164 and was pear shaped so the boobs balance me out. i was 36B and i think now am 36DD (PS only talks in ccs but did give me an estimate) put in Saline high profile 550cc and inflated to 570cc. i was thinking i should go smaller but the PS and his assistant said this size went better w/ my build. it's irritating i can't walk the dogs or lift anything but i did start walking yesterday so feel better to get out and exercise. i think i'll be really happy w/ them, last night finally got some sleep not having to be all propped up. got approval to remove all the pillows. i'm supposed to massage them bottom and top 3 times a day 10 times. wonder if i can do it more? i have sooooooo many questions!

just posted a photo and even braless w/ a shelf bra, they look huge. still not bold enough to post without bra on! they are very round and high so don't want to scare anyone braless! will look much better when they drop i hope. i did not intend to go this big but i'm 5'8" and weigh 164 and was a 36B and this is what the PS recommended. (he said to even out my body which was kind of rude for him to say but he is a Plastic surgeon so....) it is the truth! did not look this big when i was trying on boobs....anyway, i go back and forth with what in the world did i do??? but i'm still in the healing process. i really had no idea they had to drop and all that stuff... i do hope when they drop, they are a little smaller.... but next week, who knows...? after i get this compression bandage off and everything settles, they may be just right. my surgeon seems to know what he's doing and all his staff said definitely the bigger size..... we'll see! i am massaging the heck out of them...there's no way i can rupture them is it? i'm being gentle but am trying to soften them up on the top and bottom. i still have no feeling in the nipples at all... but it's only day 6.

Doing really good, trying not to think about them...

doing really good, trying not to think about them as much as i was! LOL! i'm back to walking 3 miles so feel so much better. still cant walk my big dogs, my husband walks the dogs and i walk w/ them. trying to lose the 6 lbs i gained since surgery! the lime sherbert i ate every day during recovery didn't help any. haha! i'm used to walking my dogs every am at least 3 miles so felt like a slug till i could at least walk a little bit. i'm thinking my new boobs weigh at least 3 lbs? i'll have to ask my PS. they feel very normal, i can't feel the nipples yet, not sure how long that will take. i'll feel little bolts? going through them like they are waking up. only a little sore on the outer sides. one little bruise. appt this friday so he'll prob. take the bandages off.
ok, time to focus more on work this week!!! :-) posted a couple new photos..

my PS is a perfectionist and very cocky...that threw me off a bit at first but then realized this is cosmetic surgery and that's why he's the best. :-) i've wanted to do this for a long time and thought the recovery was going to be longer and since i'm in sales didn't want to take the time off.. a friend of a friend's had hers done last month and was back to work in a few days. i went in and talked to the PS 7 days before my surgery this past friday! i knew i'd change my mind so i moved fast! back to work on Tuesday.. little bit of medicine head but almost done w/ those. stopped taking the demerol on sunday and switched to Tylenol ES. i feel very strange having boobs but i do think i'll be very happy w/ them. i do worry about complications but it seems like everyone has them w/ no problems so i won't worry about that! right now, i seem to be more concerned w/ what people think when they find out! crazy, i know.....i'll post photos later :-) i haven't even taken any! actually i was surprised my PS didn't take any yesterday.... guess he took them when i came out of surgery?
