Breast Augmentation After 2 Breast Fed Kids and Weight Loss - Sacramento, CA

It my fullest I was a 34 D. I liked the size and wish they could have stayed longer! After breast feeding and the weight lost. I am a deflated flat 32 A. I mean my skin is stretched out and I have not so visible stretch marks on my breast, but they are super flat and deflated... think of a small pancake! I love my figure now, but I wish it was more proportionate. I am a small top with a med (size 7) bottom half. I love my curves but I wish they were even.
As a fitness instructor I understand that after weight loss and being active your fat tissue will continue to shrink. I respect all these fit athletes today but there is no possible way that you can have a small body fat percentage and have nice curvy breast.
I want my boobies back, and I'm gonna get it!

7 Months later I am getting a Breast Augmentation

Hey everyone. Its been 7 months since I had a consultation. After my two consultations one in Sacramento and the other in Folsom, I applied for credit and didn't get approved for the initial amount. I came up short.
So I decided not to get them because I was but hurt, and it just wasn't meant to be. Faith had not let me get them so I just went with it.
So one day I was watching breast augmentation videos on YouTube and was again feeling hurt. Ever since November I have been wishing for some new "girls" and thought that it just wasn't my time. I got the itch to apply again to see if i can get financing but through our local bank, and I was approved!!!
So excited I remember screaming in the break room as I read through the email. Tears filled my eyes as my prayers were answered. I would always tease and make fun of my self saying, "Man, this dress would look way cute if I had a decent rack..." or "... I dont need padding... you cant fluff pancakes..." I had every excuse to joke around with my friends and family because everyone knows I have been wanted them.
Lets face it, breast feeding two children, losing fat, and gaining muscle isn't a boob growing formula. I am entering my first bikini competition in October this year (2014) and I would do it with or with out boobs. Not saying you need boobs to compete in any sport, but I would have a better self confidence on stage and again, lets be honest, a proportionate body looks better and that what judges look for.

Out of the two places I went for my consultations I fell in love with Kaufman and Clark in Folsom, CA. I chose them because of how warm, professional, and reputable they were. I have multiple friends who have been to them. I have seen many wonderful reviews, but the one thing that melted my heart was the pro-bono work they do in other countries. Both Doctors have families of their own, but still make time to donate what they can to help others in need at no cost. For example the disaster in the Philippines, they went and helped so many people who have no resourses to correcct cosmetic or health problems. Winner winner!

I will post a video about the details of the consultation and more.

Love,
Lena

post op day 2

July 11th, 2014 is post op day 2. Woke up flat on my back for some reason. I thought I was propped up but I guess I slidbdown. Anyways it was so painful to get up I had to yell for my hubby to get me up an help me set up straight. I took my med accordingly, but my doc yesterday said to lay off a lil because I was a lil doped up. So when I tryes to reduce it, I was nauseated and in pain. So I kept with the pain and spaced out the muscle relaxers. I will keep practicing with the meds.
Also last night I was so freaking bloated. I didn't have any tea at any of the hotels we walked through yesterday so I ended up buying dolculax thank goodness, I haven't gone since the day be fore suegery for about (3 days) but it worked in the morning. Everything looks well. Sharp pains here and there but nothing bad. I know dr. Said to stay home and relax bit I had to come support my husband's first fitness show. So here I am walking around drugged and sleepy haha
But it hasn't been bad. I just wall slow and keep my distant lol

post op day 3

So these passed couple of days I have been out of town for my husband's physique show. So I have been up on my feet and walking around quite a bit. My right boob is having sharp pain but I'm assuming it's the nerves rec I reconcting.

I had my first shower today and it was amazing lol. Hard to reach the top of my head but it was okay and I did it gently. Tried to wash the marker off but it did the best I could.

Hi! I am doing great. Off the meds since yesterday but today I took some IBU because I was having random sharp stings. Assuming it was the nerves connecting but nothing bad. I went to the fair today with my kids and hubby. But all was well. I am having workout withdrawals and it's killing me not being able to workout. I wonder if I can do very light work on the stationary bike and not get my heart rate up passed 100....? How about you!?

Post op Say 6 update

Hello! Feeling well. Been off the percocet for a few days now and no value either. Last night and today I took some ibu when needed but no pain. Just sharp shooting pins ones in a while but not bother some.
Though my incision sites are inching under the sterile strip tape things like hell sometimes.
I feel blessed that I have been as active as I have. I see some ladies on here who aren't doing as well and I wish them the best.
I know PS says to take it easy and I have.... In my own way. Hubby is doing the laundry, all the meals were prepped because I did it before I went in. And he won't let me carry to many things. But I still like to carry light things just to build strength. I have been walking every day expect post op day one. Friday Saturday Sunday Monday and Tuesday I have been on my feet and sat down when I felt that I needed to too. I have to walk. I can't stand the fact of just sitting there like a bum.
Went to the state fair today for hubbbys birthday and felt fine. We were there for like 6 hours.

Hi Lena, saw your post to Tinka about going back to work. Up until April 1st, I managed a gym for 9 years. I put off my BA for that long because I couldn't get enough time off from the gym. (We were smaller and only 1-2 people per shift. Cleaning tanning beds, cleaning, and putting weights away....there was no way I'd be ready in 2 weeks! I look forward to hitting the gym again in a couple of weeks. ...recumbent bike to start and some light legs! I bet it felt good for you to get back! You look fabulous!

Thanks love! I just got off work and just finished my bike ride. 45 mons max heart rate at 115. Feel good. Slowly cooling down. But yes heal well and I'm sure doc will give you the green light

My surgery is Wednesday and I was just curious as to what did you take with you on your surgery date? Did you take you meds with you? And did they provide you a bra or you took one you bought?
  • Reply
I took my meds with me. And a zip up sweat suit. They did provide me with a medical compression bra. 2 of them. Good questions! Excited ?!?! Niyasmommy

Post little more than 1 week

My skin feels raw and tingly on chest and tummy.
My right boob sometimes throbs on the side.
Back to work and 1st day was ruff 2 was way better. But overall I'm glad to be back.
Worked out twice already. 45 min recumbent bike. Second day I did quads hamstrings and squats.
Constipated again so drank 2 diet teas. I'm going to be shitting the whole day tmrw lol
Right nipple is still numb. But tender when rubbed like seat belt or sweater.
But, I feel about 90% mentally and 75% physically

Hey everyone. Here is my update for my week one post op check up.
I got good news! My prayers have been answered. Find out what I am cleared to do!

I love the size! There a little big for me right now. I can't wait til they soften and stop swelling! But no. No bigger for me menext00

Tried on Bras. Still too early. Got Measured!

I tried on bras today and was measured at VS today and damn. I am surprised. I asked 2 girls to measure me and I am a 32 DD. Cheese its! Lol. So I tried them on and I didn't think the cup fit but the 2 gals insisted that the cup was too small. I was under the impression that the cup was supposed to cup your book snuggly. Not be an inch away from your cup and poke up and not lay flat. Then again I know I'm still swollen though. So I kinda get it. So they tell me I am a 32DDD. Lol I don't think so. She said I'm just so full (why thank you hehe)
Here's a couple pics. Can't wait to go back again and again lol. I'm going to get measured every time I go in haha.

Can you tell me your stats? I watched your video and you said you had changed your cc's to 425 instead of 350. I'm having my ba done next Tuesday and doing 325 cc's. I'm 5'3 and 110 lbs.
  • Reply
I measured a 34DD early on and now am 32DDD. 34 band was loose but fit the cups. I would wait to buy bras because I think you are for sure going to be bigger! You look really good in your photos. You picked the perfect size for your body.
  • Reply
I'm afraid of that. I don't want to be a DDD lol. Hopefully when they stop swelling it will go down a lil. But for dropping they won't drop much because I have textured tear drop

3D Imaging of Post Op expectation

Okay so i finnaly found the pics of the 3d imager thingy that we used at the docs office.
So i stood there and they lined me up with the camera and then took a pic.
Then we went with sizes and shapes and textures. it even lets you put on a bikini bra or shirt on!
But of course i chose the naked one haha!
Who ever made this Vector Imager is dope! It looks so real. you can see my stretch marks and everything!

Hey Menext00, Good question! I should have mentioned that hahah DUH. I am 5'4" 123lbs. I chose 375 originally , but a week after that i was debating if it was too small. everyone told me to go bigger. and im glad i did. on the imager the 375 looked so small. so i went bigger. i just posted the pic on my review. check it out.

2 week post op video update

Feeling better and better. I am not taking any medication what so ever. No more IBU, no stool softness nothing!

Here is an updated, watch and enjoy!

One Month Post Op!

Yay! The twins are one month old! I feel great they feel a bit hard lol. Still a little firm but are way softer than in the beginning. Have a little feeling in one of my nipple but not much. The other one is still numb at the nipple and down.
I have been wearing sports more than the compression bra given to me. But are still supportive. Haven't dropped really but swelling has gone down significantly.
I have been working out like my DR. said it was ok. But today I did my first push up and it didn't hurt it just felt weird. I did a plank and that was ok. I did biceps triceps and shoulders and it was ok! No pain. Didn't feel like I over did it. I did my first cycling class and it was fun! Couldn't hang with the class but I held up well. Hoping to get cleared to resume activity because I am scheduled to start training and prep for my first bikini competition on saturday! So fingers crossed. Going in to my post op appointment today and will make another video. So stay tuned for vlog 10!
