I just got my implants this week. This has ben a decision I have ben debating on for years but I finally decided I was ready.
I was a 34A and most of the time not even fully filling out an A. I did lots of research before choosing a doctor and several consultations. I am glad I chose the doctor I did. He made me and my husband very comfortable with the procedure. He also understood that I wanted a natural look. I have a small frame and I did not want to look like my breasts could be floatation devices. I chose to go with a silicone implant of 286 cc, so I should be a large B or small C.
I really thought I would be in more pain after surgery but really its mainly just being uncomfortable. The pain meds definitely help and I do have them on a timer. I a very excited to see what my new boobs look like once the swelling goes down and i will try to load pictures
So I had my surgery on Tuesday and so far I have...

I am happy to report since I have been up and about getting back to normal. I walked to brunch today and ejoyed a normal weekend.
I think my breasts are still a bit swollen but I am really happy so far. Before surgery I was really hesitant to tell people because I thought they might judge me. But I have found the complete opposite, everyone has been very supportive.
The after surgery bra is not very attractive so I can't wait to wear normal clothing and bras. So I have attached pictures. Just a side note the red lines on my before pic are my fault. I was having some trouble figuring out how to use a mac.
So it has been a little over two months since my...

I feel like my body is still adjusting. I do notice that my left breast has more sensativity to the touch and is softer than the right. I assume thats because I am left handed so I have still continued to massage the right breast.
One thing I found difficult after the surgery was the exercise restrictions. I tried to change my diet since I wasn't burning the calories, but I don't have the best self control. So I started walking right away after the surgery, and then a month later I did start slowly going back to the gym and getting on the elyptical. Once I got the go ahead after the 6 weeks, I started right away lifting weights and running. It does feel a little different running, and I am discovering the benefits of a good sports bra.
There are two things that I have not gotten completely used to yet. First my nipples are really sensitive. I believe since they have been stretched the nerves are still figuring out what to do. I just feel like they are always on alert and I dont like stimulation to them as much anymore. And second, my scars are darker than I would like. The scar cream is helping, but I guess I want instant gratification and for them to just lighten up.
Overall it has been a very positive experience for me and I still am very happy with my decision to go forward with the breast augmentation
