Update: Post-op day 4

I'm exactly 10 days from my new boobs!!! I am so...

I'm exactly 10 days from my new boobs!!! I am so excited!! I've been waiting for these for about 5 years now.. When I was 20 years old a friend and I went and had consultations done because I thought that I was financially capable of paying for them. HA! Wrong. So here I am 4 days from my 25th birthday and finally able to pay for a new rack. :) I am currently living in Colorado, but am flying to Scottsdale, AZ to have my breast augmentation done. I had a couple girlfriends to there and their results are outstanding so I was sold. I felt comfortable from the very first time I visited Dr. Lille's website and talked to his assistant on the phone. She was awesome. Because I have had consultations previously I knew what I was getting myself into, so I will have a formal consultation with my doctor on the 12th of March and my surgery is scheduled for the 13th. I've been going back and forth and back and forth on sizes. Here are my stats:
5'5"
135
Athletic build
I've recently become very fit and in turn have lost a lot of my breasts. I think that by getting this surgery it will enhance everything else I have going on. I am considering either 425 cc's or 450. I will be getting silicone cohesive gels sub muscular. I will post some pictures as soon as I figure out how. :/ Every single person I've talked to has always said they wished they had gone bigger.. I don't want to go TOO big but I want to be happy. I am getting extremely anxious & a little bit nervous. I think I'm doing too much research on the bad things that can happen and I'm really freaking myself out!! Now that I know what can happen, I've been focusing in the size & shape that I am looking for! I am extremely lucky to have a very supportive boyfriend, mother & grandmother. My grandma lives in AZ and was more than willing to take care of me. Thank god! She took care of my mom nearly 10 years ago when she had her boobs done. :) I will be flying to Phoenix on Saturday the 9th and flying home the following Saturday the 16th. I'm nervous about the flight home.. Luckily it's only an hour and a half flight. I should be okay, right? In the meantime, the countdown is officially on!! 10 days and counting!!

A week from tomorrow is the big day! Holy crap!...

A week from tomorrow is the big day! Holy crap! I'm really starting to get the pre-surgery jitters now! I have been doing soo much research that I am feeling pretty good about my surgery, but still freaking out a little bit about complications.. :/ I am so excited though! I am finally able to post pictures because I'm actually on the computer instead of just my iPad. For some reason it doesn't want to let me post pictures! Anybody else having surgery on March 13th?! I need a recovery buddy!! (:

I have officially touched down in Arizona! Pre-op...

I have officially touched down in Arizona! Pre-op appointment is scheduled for Tuesday! I think I've got all my stuff I need for my surgery! I have picked up some arnica Montana pellets & cream for the swelling and bruising. I heard its essential of surgery. I've got a couple zip up foam Danskin bras from Walmart that a couple others have suggested. I also picked some scar gel to help the healing of the scars. We've got I've packs all ready.. If there are any other necessities that I need please let me know! I'm getting some pre surgery jitters & nerves, but I think for the most part I am excited. I was talking to my mom earlier today about my nerves and about me getting these feelings that I shouldn't do it, but she keeps reassuring me that I'm going to love it and I've wanted it for so long that it's finally happy and that I'm doing it for me and not to be worried! I just love her so much. now if only the next couple days would just fly by. :)

Tomorrow is pre-op & final decisions day! I am...

Tomorrow is pre-op & final decisions day! I am having soo many emotions! I'm excited, scared, anxious, getting feelings of doubt, selfishness, and everything in between! Ahhh! I feel like I'm going to drive myself crazy! I think after my pre-op appointment I'll feel a lot better.. I hope. I really wish I had my boyfriend here to help me. He had to stay home & prepare for his new job he starts 5 days post op! He's such a hard working dedicated man, I just love him! Plus even though he's 400+ miles away he still makes sure I'm doing okay and that he supports me and is there for me! I can't even believe that in less than 48 hours I'll have new twins!! Anybody else that's having surgery around the same time getting pre-surgery jitters?!! Help me feel better about it! Also added more before pictures! Going a little crazy on the before pictures, but just wait til I start posting post-op!! Haha! :) I can't wait!

Pre-op appointment down! I freaking love my...

Pre-op appointment down! I freaking love my doctor! He's the best. Finalized on 450ccs! My doctor said that because my implants only come on 25 cc increments that my size difference isn't that much & he feels better doing them the same size. He's the professional. I'm soo excited! My nerves are pretty much gone! Now I'm just really excited! I'll post again tomorrow! :)

I finally have them!!! I had to be at the surgical...

I finally have them!!! I had to be at the surgical center at 9:30am, we got there at 9. Filled out all my paperwork & went back to be prepped for surgery around 9:35. I waited and waited and waited and it seemed like I was back there forever. Probably because I was sooo hungry & sooooo thirsty. Dr. Lille came in about 12, (my surgery was scheduled for 11:30) got my anesthesia wheeled me back, made some jokes & next thing I knew I was in recovery feeling like I'd been sucking cotton balls!!! My mouth was soo dry!! I tried to keep myself awake through recovery, but I could not keep my eyes open! I was in recovery for about an hour and a half then they sent me on my merry way!! I've been resting since I got home & having a hard time sleeping cause its not comfortable! I haven't seen them yet cause I have an ace bandage all wrapped up, but Friday I will! I think I am going to be extremely happy with the size!! :)

Now about my doctor & staff. Holy cow!! I am absolutely blown away with how amazing he is!!! Soooo nice. Extremely thorough and funny as hell! I felt like I'd known him for years. I genuinely felt cared for! He even called me from his home this evening around 8:30pm to make sure I was doing okay! Amazing bedside manner! I can't say anything bad!! I would recommend him to EVERYONE!!!

Really tired and a bit loopy from medicine! Pain level about a 3. Feel like I have a 10 pound plate sitting on my chest after doing the most intense chest workout ever!!! Other than that, everything has been fairly easy! I'll update tomorrow on my recovery! My post-op appointment will be Friday!

Sorry for the spelling, punctuation, grammar or any other errors. My iPad is difficult to type on in the recliner! Yay for new boobs!!! :)

So I've made it through most of post-op day one! I...

So I've made it through most of post-op day one! I feel like I have a 10 pound plate just chillin on my chest. I'm pretty sore too! I've been taking my pain meds every 3 1/2 or 4 hours! I've been trying to just take it super easy!! I haven't gotten out of my recliner except to go pee. Otherwise I'm doin' okay. Trying really hard to just take it easy so I don't overdue it! Going to try and rest some more! I'll try and update tomorrow. :)

So post op day 2 already seems to be better than...

So post op day 2 already seems to be better than yesterday! Yesterday was tough! I felt like I couldn't take enough pain meds to help! I've been sitting in my recliner this whole time only getting up to use the bathroom. Still haven't had a BM, but hopefully today! I've had my cup of coffee and I drank a glass of prune juice so hopefully it'll help! I am having my post-op appointment later this afternoon! I can't wait to see them! I'll update again after I get back from my appointment. Hope all my recovery buddies are doing okay today! :)

Sorry I've been slacking with the updates! I've...

Sorry I've been slacking with the updates! I've been really trying to rest as much as I can, plus I had a whole day of traveling yesterday which completely wore me out! The good news, or the TMI news, I had a BM today! Finally! It wasn't anything spectacular, but I'm just glad my BM are starting to get back to normal! I've posted two new pictures! The first one is from my post-op appointment which was Friday, and the newest one is today in my bathroom! I absolutely love them! They are changing everyday, and everyday I fall more in love with them! I'm glad I chose the size I did, because I think after all my D&F they will be the perfect size! It's crazy cause they don't look nearly as big as I thought they would! I was freaking out the morning of surgery wondering if I should go smaller! I'm glad I didn't! They look bigger without the surgical bra on too! I can't wait for new swimming suits! Yes! :) I've slowly been getting off the pain meds. I didn't take any last night, and slept comfortable throughout the night. I think I've been really lucky cause I haven't had any problems sleeping through the night! I've gotten really used to sleeping on my back too! I haven't had any bruising and my incisions look great! I seriously couldn't be happier with my results so far and I know that it just gets better! I've had constant ice on them, just in a ziplock baggy wrapped in a pillow case and I think it's helped so much with the swelling! The pain is slowly starting to subside! I was originally supposed to go back to work Monday, but I'm going to wait til Wednesday and that will be a week post-op and even then I'm a little hesitant! Luckily my managers have been so understanding with my whole situation! How are all my other boobie recovery friends doing?!!
Sean Lille

I've had a couple girlfriends come have surgery by him and their results were fantastic!! I am sure mine will be just as good!! He is one of the nicest doctors I've ever had to deal with! His bedside manner is out of this world!! I am extremely impressed!!! I would definitely recommend him to any and everyone!!!

I'm getting mine done in two days! Your blog has made me feel much better! Are you able to post some recent pics? I'm curios to what 450cc's look like after they drop

You look great! I told you he's a good Dr. lol. BTW< since you are out of town, what happens if you have any questions or complications? Do you have to fly back down?

Yay! You look amazing!! Seriously! Post op day 4 for most people don't look as good as yours do. I'm so happy for you! My PS didnt want me to use ice the first couple of days but I think I will start now. I agree that I have little breast pain, just back pain, but working on the posture haha. That's crazy, yeah I would take a couple extra days off for bartending. One of my friends had her BA on a Friday and went back to bartending Monday. But I think she had saline over the the muscle so it was probably an easier recovery. I have literally no bruising either so very happy with that. Can't wait to see what mine look like in the next few days! I feel like they change a little bit everyday :). Keep me updated girl.

Woke up today feeling really good. I finally slept for 4 hours straight and spreading pain meds to every 6 hours now. I tried on a t-shirt today with no bra and WOW..I loved what I saw. It felt good to take off all the bandages even if it was just for 15 minutes. I'm really really bruised but not much pain. Glad to see you're feeling better too. Happy healing!

Congratulations! Glad to hear you got "some" sleep and can manage the pain with your meds. Take care and feel free to post some before and after photos in a review. We'd love to see your results!

I haven't tried on any shirts yet, but I'm dying to! :) I totally understand about taking the bandages off! I unzip my bra and just say "awwww"! Haha! Have you tried using the Arnica Montana? I used it and I don't have any bruising at all! Try it and see if it helps! :)

Congrats!! I'm in soooo much pain right now on my left wide and left part of back but I've only been taking Tylenol and 1 Valium. I think if I was taking pain meds like everyone else I would be feeling much better. My back is LITERALLY killing me lol. Worst pain ever. My boobie doing even hurt that bad. Did your back hurt?
  • Reply
I really haven't been in much pain! I did notice that the more I slouched over the more pain my back was in. I've been really focusing on my posture and its been helping. I've only been taking my pain meds about every 4-5 hours. He gave me two different pain meds. One is Demerol which is the narcotic and amazing, and then Tramadol which is a non-narcotic and less intense. I've just been taking the Tramadol and feeling just fine! Hopefully you find some relief in your back pain!

How was your night? My worse pain was at 1.45 am and it finally subsided and I was able to sleep the rest of the night. I find crossing my arms to sit up and using all ab muscles really help. Hope you are doing ok and all goes well for you!
  • Reply
My night was actually really great! I was soo tired from being up since 3am the night before because I was so anxious and nervous that I slept like a baby! I set my alarm two different times during the night to keep up on my pain meds! I just feel really tight and that I have a 10 pound plate sitting on my chest, but other than that I feel really good! I've had to be really care not to use my arms! Good thing my abs are strong enough to get me up by myself! It's nice!! How are you feeling today?

How are you feeling today surgery buddy? I had mine yesterday along with a lift and armpit lipo. I'm pretty bruised and sore. I haven't been able to sleep despite Vicodin and Benadryl, not because of the pain I really dont know why. Even though I got a lift my ps preferred to place the implants transaxillary since he was going to have to place an incision there anyway for the lipo. I was hesitant at first but decided to go for it since that is really his forte. He does all his transaxillary. I can't wait to see them tomorrow when I shower. Yay boobies!!

I feel great! Just tired, but not a lot of pain at all! I tire really easily, so I've been taking it really easy!! I can't wait to see mine tomorrow either!! :) have you been taking any arnica montana? That's supposed to really help with swelling and bruising!
  • Reply
I have but I don't think there's anyway around the lipo bruising. I'm feeling pretty good as well. I'm sick of sitting in the house so going out and about a little today, maybe just to walk the mall. Happy healing!

Did your ps tell you to use the arnica ? Mine didnt say anything about it . Is there any stores that sell it or do you have to get it online. I heard amazon ? One new thing is it a pill or lotion ?
  • Reply
I heard about Arnica on here, asked my PS about it and he said it was fine to use, they even sell it at the office. However I bought the cream at Walmart and the pills at Amazon. It was cheaper. You start the pills before surgery and continue taking them for a week or two after, then start with the gel after you get the ok to do so. I also picked up Bromelain which is a pineapple extract that helps with inflammation.
