13 days post op! - Seattle, WA

So far I'm excited and can't wait! So far Dr....

So far I'm excited and can't wait! So far Dr. Salemy has been great and he has excellent communication. I have my pre op on the 5th and can't wait to try the sizers on and really figure out what I'm going to get.. My guess is something like 350-375cc.
I hope I'm making all the right decisions. But still stress about how my ba will look when I'm done. I'm not telling anyone. I have some friends that have made fun of people who have had a boob job so I'm not going to tell them. I always wear a padded bra so they shouldn't really notice after and I so rarely wear a bikini I can't even remember the last time anyone has seen me in one. I will put up before and after pics eventually.

Gosh I repeated myself how many times??? Duh I'm...

I'm hoping to be a very full c to smallish d
I'm 5'7 and 140 lbs and wear a 36 c, it's much to big in all ways but I like the finished look with clothes on.

Six days to my post op!!!!!

Starting to freak out a bit! Worried that they will be to big :o I think I have decided on 397cc left and 421cc right. Measure a 34 A with out a bra on but look more like a B (I think) and wear a C for a better finished look. Hoping for a small D. But don't want to look fake. 5'6-5'7 tall and 135-140 lbs, rib cage about 29" so stressful!

Yep, starting to really freak out! I dont want to...

Yep, starting to really freak out! I dont want to be bigger then a D... Does any one else have 397 and/or 421? what size are you now? I'm a professional horseback rider and ride about 6 hrs a day so I'm worried that they could be to big for show jumping.. should I down size?!?! It will prob be fine but its starting to consume me and my whole day everyday..
Seven days till I move to the other side!

So I called Dr.S today and asked to size down to 371cc and 397cc. I think I will be more at peace of mind just knowing they are smaller then bigger. I hate to do that last min but I was really starting to stress.. feel soooo much better now, I rather feel that they are a touch small then big.

So I leave for Seattle tomorrow! Surgery on Monday morning!

I had my surgery this morning! I think everything...

I had my surgery this morning! I think everything went very well. I did get a really bad cough sore throat and a small temp the day before.. Yay. But after surgery I actually felt much better. I came out of the anesthetic a little sick and threw up had to take some pills and anti nausea medicine and was much better after that.
I can't really see what they look like but from what I can tell it looks good. There is quite a bit of pain and tightness. I think a lot comes from the band around the top and maybe a little from the compression bra. I slept lots right after when I got back to my hotel, when it was time to take more oxy my friend made me eat a banana and it was sooo good!! After that I was all of a sudden famished and went to the vending machine and got a bunch of junk that I gobbled down.. I was so hungry I guess. After that we just hung out watching tv for a bit then went to Panara bread, yum we don't have those in Canada.
As I said I'm feeling very tight across my chest and most movement with my arms hurts cause it pulls on my chest. I can't sleep right now so just took some more meds and hope that helps. I will get some pics up soon!

Feeling much better today! Still some tightness...

Feeling much better today! Still some tightness but not bad. Sleeping has been a little challenging at the hotel but I did fly back to Canada today so hopefully it will be better in my bed!
They already look sooo good, I am more then happy with my outcome! I will put up pics from my computer.. For some reason my iPhone won't give me a photo upload option. Dr. S really has to be one of the best out there! I can't even express how happy I am in all ways!!!!!

Well I guess it's been a week! Feeling good over...

Well I guess it's been a week! Feeling good over all. My left boob looks perfect, the right still is a little high but I am only at a week. I hope the left doesn't drop to much more.. I would say they are still pretty firm but are getting softer everyday. I will get my hubby to take some more pics! I really think they will look very natural on my frame, I will get a full body pic cause I had a hard time finding people that were a similar size as me before for comparison.

Having major boob greed right now!!! lol

So my back is absolutely killing me! I had a really bad fall from my horse about four years ago and have had problems ever since so sleeping every night on it is not a happy place for me. I'm also having a bit of a sharp pain under my left breast.. Has anyone else had anything like that? I will contact Dr. S if it doesn't subside in a day or so. That was the slightly bigger natural breast with the smaller implant. I took a sleeping pill (which I haven't taken yet cause they scare me for some reason) so I'm hoping I will be out like a light by the time I submit this! And I know I still need to get more pics up!!! I'm on it...

I had been feverishly researching on the internet and when I came across Dr. Salemy I just had a feeling he was the right ps for me. Then of course I read his reviews and that solidified my feelings. In person Dr. S is very kind, informative and professional. I would deffanatly recomend him and go back for anything I may want in the future. The best for sure!!!!

Forgot to ask you if you liked your size?? Also, my chiropractor has been a godsend for back issues and I have one of those things where you lay on it and it kind of hangs you upside down which helps with decompressing your spine ;)

I have those sharp pains. My PS said are the nerves that were affected. I read the same in other answers by different doctors here. Stii have them 2 weeks after surgery day. I take vitamine 12 and 6 that I read helps. Good recovery!

Still feeling sore. Started my "massages" today and that really kind of hurt. I have to do them five times a day so not really looking forward to that. All being said they look great! :)
  • Reply
Wow I just looked at your pictures and you look fantastic!!!! I almost wish I went slightly bigger but I know for my show jumping this is the best size
  • Reply
Fantastic! I ride too lol!!! (Hunters/jumpers) I started massaging on day 2 but it hasn't been bad which I have been thankful of! Can't wait to start riding again!! :)

To funny. I do hunter/jumper to (but you know how most people don't know what that is so easier to say show jumping) I'm actually a trainer so I'm hoping my clients don't notice. I can't wait to start up again, although my horses are happy with the extra time off.

OMG too funny! My daughter and I both ride! I'm sure with the right amount of compression, sports bras (which you will need to wear anyway), clothes, etc. you will be fine. If you show up wearing a skin tight tank top on the other hand .... ;o) When did your doc clear you to start riding again? I'm dying to ride!!!! I am at 3 weeks post op today.
  • Reply
Haha I'm one if those mean trainers that doesn't even let the girls ride in tank tops.. Polo shirts or other appropriate tops heheh. He said probably at six weeks, I might wait till the end of feb. What about yours?
  • Reply
Lol my daughter usually rides in polos and always in a hair net (without me forcing her). Ha ha .. I guess at 6 weeks I will start light riding... I haven't asked my PS .. Afraid I would like the answer. :P
  • Reply
Ahhh good girl! I like it! We are all hairneters to, even the jumpers ;) How are you boobs doing? Settling in? I feel like my right still has more dropping but I don't want my left to change to much more. I guess it's still very early for me.. Just 13 days out :)
