I had my surgery on Nov 8, 2012. It has been a good experience so far minus the pressure on my chest and in between my shoulders from the extra weight on my chest now. I did 650cc High profile Silicone.I love my big boobs. I told the MD to go big or go home and well that is exactly what he did. Wonderful

I am 5 days post op and have not had too many problems. The tightness will get better as I am re-assured. I have a stitch on the end of the left breast that is irriated, apparently I had a local reaction to triple antibiotic ointment. It was one of those days that the tightness was getting the best of me.And to top it off, I think I had food poisioning, so I really felt like crap today. The MD said that he could not have gone any bigger than what I went with. He also stated that my right implant didn't want to stay in. LOL The boobs are starting to feel a little better and not as hard. he last day I took pain meds were last Friday. I am down to OTC Tylenol, Muscle Relaxer, and antibiotic. I think the hardest part of all this is like my friend who just had a mommy make-over, we did this without our husbands since they are deployed. So far I am very pleased with results, I will be happier when I am completely healed. The only thing I wish I would known prior to this was how bad it was going to stink sleeping in the recliner or propped up for a week. With all this being said, I am truly blessed that I have not had any major post-op complications. I am also thankful that my sweet dear friend introduced me to this website.

Has anyone experienced their nipples being so tender they hurt after BA? Is this normal? Thanks

Today is day 7 post op. Everything is going great minus the darn tightness and super tender & sore nipples. One of the doctors I woke with gave me a shot of Toradol today to help with the tightness. She will be getting me a prescription ready for me to pick up at lunch time. Thank goodness she is such a sweetheart because I can't stand the tightness. I am still liking the big boobies though. Hope everyone has a good day.

Day 7 post op pics have been posted. The bruising is almost gone. My PS did a fabulous job with everything.

Today is 8 day post op. Went to the PS this am and got fussed at a little because I was honest and told him the MD that I work with gave me a shot of Toradol (NDSAID) and he said NOOOOOOOOOOOO. He stated that it could cause a hematoma. I told him it was my fault also because I didn't fully read the post op instructions that they mailed me. OOOPS. I guess that is what I get for being honest. I thought Toradol was a pain/muscle relaxant. I guess I was wrong. The incisions look fabulous, the best part the sutures came out. WOOOO HOOOO! Still no going to the gym to do light cardio. I have to massage my right breast since it is still riding high.
The swelling, nipple soreness, and breast tightness will eventually go away. Cocoa butter can be used to help reduce the potential of strectch marks. I am glad I good a good report. Well worth the discomfort.

Day 9 and the tightness is a little better. The nipples are still are sore as heck. I was allowed to sleep in the bed last night. That was an experience, especially since I am a side sleeper. I tried sleeping on my stomach like my PS said, OUCH!! I am a side sleeper and I am not allowed to do that. Oh well the price I pay for wanting the big boobies. :)

Today was an emotional blah day. My anniversary is Friday and my husband is in Afghanistan. :( The tightness is getting better and so is the nipple soreness. I am having to massage the right boob. That isn't too uncomfortable.Many of my friends have been a great support team, however Michele you have been a great and I thank you for that.

I am 11 days post op and today was my first day...

I am 11 days post op and today was my first day back to work. My boobies were so swollen today that I sat at my desk and leaned back in my chair for a few minutes with ice packs on. At the end of the day I had to unclasp all but the bottom clasp on my bra due to the swelling.. I ended up sitting on the sofa just rubbing them, which seemed to help.

Day 15 and the tightness is getting better. The nipples are still extremely sore and tender. The girls are starting to drop and I am liking the results. I was able to find two sports bras at Target tonight that actually fit properly. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

After 17 days post op, the tightness is finally letting up. Now if the nipple tenderness/soreness would disappear I would be golden. I love having the huge boobies, but I do kind of wish I would have only went 550cc instead of the 650. I guess these feeling will pass once I am completely healed. I have to say a huge thank you to my best friends Dawn and Michele for being so supportive. I love these gals.

The post op bra they sent me home in has irritated the incision on the left breast. This is the one that the sutures got inflammed due to the local reaction to Neosporin. I have stopped wearing that bra because it was cutting into me and I could not fasten it all the way. I have been doing everything that my PS has said to do.
It looks like a have a stitch poking out, so I will have one of the MD's I work with look at it tomorrow. It also looks like the incision has busted open in one area. There is no bleeding or drainage which is a huge plus. I shall see what my MD says about it. I hope it is nothing and she just puts some steri-strips (butterfly band-aids) on the area. I am a little scared.

I had the MD that I work with look at the left breast incision. She said it was slightly inflammed but it is ok. The MD stated the horrible bra that the PS sent me home in must have been rubbing on the incision. She told me to use Bactroban antibiotic ointment. I am glad that I was able to find some sports bras at Target that fit and are comfortable. I am glad nothing is seriously wrong.

My boobs are dropping more and starting to feel much better.
The massages are doing the trick. The incision on the left breast looks much much better. Thank goodness someone invented Bactroban anitbiotic oinment. Hope everyone is doing well.

I am 25 days post op. My boobs are settling like they are suppose to. The left one seems to be riding a tiny bit high so I am massaging the heck out it. I do the massages upwards of 10 times a day. The left breast incision is looking much better. There is a scab on it now. I am still cleaning it at least 4 times a day with Perioxide and keeping in smothered in Bactroban antibiotic ointment. The scar on the right breast looks great.

I do not regret going through this at all. Now that the tenderness, tightness, and nipple tenderness is much much better, I am really loving the boobies.

The boobs are looking great. I still have trouble sleeping, which is partly due to my husband being deployed. The left breast incision is healed. Wooo Hoo. I am still loving the girls.

I am still loving the girls. I don't think they look like they are a Double D, it could be because I see them daily. I hope when they are completely healed, I will be. I am only 4 weeks out, so I am still optimistic and healing.

I went and got measured at Victoria Secret. She thinks in a few months when the girls are finished settling I will be Triple D/F. Lord I hope not. I am now going thru the phase of why did I do this? Don't get me wrong I like the girls, but I was fine the way I was. :(

I had a 6 week post op visit yesterday. I am a bit aggreviated that the last 2 times that I have had appointments, I have seen his nurse instead of him. The last I checked, I paid for the MD and not the nurse. The nurse said that the girls are settling nicely. I go back in 3 months for more pictures. I hope I get to see the MD instead of the nurse.

My husband has been home from Afghanistan for 3 weeks and absoluetely loves the girls. I told him three days ago I wanted to go bigger than 650 cc. He looked at me like I was high. I love my DDs.

I am almost 4 months post op. I told my hubby a few weeks ago that I think I want to go a tad bigger in a year or so. I am a 36 DD in Victoria, but a F from figleaves.com. It is all good but I have big boobs that I have always wanted :)

9 months

I am 9 months out. The girls look great. I sometimes think I want to go back in and go a tiny bit bigger. I will post pics later.

9 month pictures

I am extremely happy with my results. I think from time to time of going back and having them enhanced a little bit more, but I think I will hold off for a while.
Kansas Facial Plastic Surgeon

He is very good at what he does. To say he is a perfectionist is an understatement. I am glad that I was referred to him by a friend who had a procedure by him. After doing my research I found he had great reviews, which was a huge plus and not to mention he is a board certified ENT also. I will be recommending him to friends.

Hi missmistyl. I have to say,you look great and your incisions look amazing. Are you using anything on them? I had my surgery on September 5th and while my incisions have flattened out, they are still a mediocre purple. It's odd to read that you had wished you went smaller when so many others wish they went larger. Me, I went as large as I could with the skin I had available (500cc). Somedays, I want larger but I have found that if I put a push-up bra on that eases my mind.

I go thru spurts of loving them and hating them. I guess that will subside.I have been on emotional roller coaster lately. I guess once I start wearing regular bras I will love them again. I rub cocoa butter on the incisions twice a day. I also use stuff called Tattoo Goo, which is full of vitamins. I got it when I had 2 tats covered up and a new one. It works fabulous and so does the cocoa butter. I went from a 34B to 36DD (650HP Silicone under the muscle)

Hi babe. Maybe not. Those girls who measure don't always know. Remember the bras run small at VS.
  • Reply
I know. I have never been steerred wrong at VS. I was measured years ago and I could go to Target or Kohl's and by a 34 B and they fit perfectly as if it were a VS bra.
  • Reply
I was wondering if VS sizes shrank! I have always been an A sometimes a B then I bought bras recently at VS...now they're saying I'm a C....NO WAY am I a C cup!

I am kinda going through the same thing. I thought I was a 34DD, which I am totally happy with, but then I went to Soma to buy some bras, and the one that I liked only fit me in a 36DDD!!!!!! Triple yikes! That sounded terrible to me. The saleswoman told me though that every bra is different though, so not to worry too much. It didn't make me look any bigger than my 34DD, so I'm not sure why there is such a difference. She said maybe because it was a lace bra that didn't have any stretch to it. Whatever the case, I am learning not to put too much stock in the actual number and letter size, and just make sure that it fits right and is comfortable. Hope that helps you feel better about your situation. :)

Missmisty you look FABULOUS!!! I'm jealous!!! Hehe You look like a DD if not larger!! I'm just 2 weeks post op, and of coarse if I did it all over I would have at least got 500cc's!!!! I love your look!! I have 435cc's, my biggest issues has been the sleeping! I am a stomach sleeper and even sleeping on my side is uncomfortable! Mornings have been the worst! I feel really sore when I wake up! I've heard some others refer to it as "morning boob"! Lol Can't wait to sleep on my tummy again! Merry Christmas to us!!! :)

I had the same feeling in the mornings. Sleeping has also been rough for me as I am a side sleeper and my PS told me not to sleep on my side, but for the past week I have been. :) Thank you for the compliment. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

ahhhh. Yeah you look like a DDD. I went 550 Style 45 Natrelle Gel and I'm a DD and you look whole lot larger then I am. I finally fluffed and the girls are soft and feel like real boobies... Thanks god. I look normal not like ball on a board. haha You loooook greattttt. happy holidays to you. keep us posted. Why did you have all the bruising? Yikes that scares me. Did that hurt? Yikes.
  • Reply
Happy Holusays/Merry Christmas to you.I typically bruise very easily. All the bruising went away within a week. I wasn't in too much pain it was the tightness and pressure that stunk in between my shoulders that made me miserable. My feel like they are getting softer. They just don't seem big it is probably because I look at them daily.

Are you getting any chiropractic or deep massage to help with the shoulder issues? Even if you can't lay on ur chest for adjustment, they can use the activator on u, and u can still get massages on ur upper back. The massage therapist can reach under and work ur muscles. I would go in a heartbeat if i were u. btw. girl...ur more than DD...more like ddd...sorry!!!
  • Reply
No. The pressure has subsided. I have a friend massage my shoulders daily at work.
  • Reply
Yes and hot packs can help that. You might want to invest in a hand held wand massager that you can hold on your sore spots back there. I gave mine away and now i'm cursing myself...
