Decided to have BR after years of living with overly large breasts. Now I am 3 days post-op and I'm terrified I made the wrong decision! They just seem so small! I told PS I wanted to be a D or full C. They seem tiny and maybe they are a C? But will they get smaller after swelling or settle into a nice shape?

Been hard to get back into the groove of things. On the days I feel good, I definitely pay for it in the evening after a productive day. Incisions seem to bother me most then. Scars are looking good! Wish I could sleep on my tummy! Have had bouts of insomnia, so that doesn't help. Hate insomnia!!! Guess I'm lucky I only work very part time right now, but wishing I had a better routine now that the surgery is over. Feel like such a slug, but I guess it's better to rest and heal up properly. Heading in to PS tomorrow. I have seemed to develop horrible acne on my chest and a little on my face and they want to check it out. Hormones have been so out of whack since after surgery. I had my period start the day before surgery and it only lasted a couple days. Feel like surgery interrupted my monthly friend and now I'm paying for it! Hope all of you are doing well and thanks for all of your support through this! it's so nice to be able to connect with others! :)

Dr Thao is an excellent Plastic Surgeon. Very happy with the results of my BR. I was sent home with no aftercare instructions which leads me to calling his office frequently for answer to what is ok and what is not. His office has been extremely helpful and actually encourages me to call with any questions, no matter how minor.
