44 Year Old Mom to 3 Boys Excited to Perk Up my Well Nursed Breasts - Seattle, WA

I have wanted to have this procedure ever since I finished nursing my last baby, he is now 6 and I nursed him for 19 months. I had 3 consults before I found my PS. I love the one I chose!! He will be doing a donut lift, with 375cc under the muscle silicone implants on July 28th and I can't wait!! I'm 5'4" and weigh 127 lb

2 weeks tomorrow!!!!

I'm getting very excited and nervous!!! I've purchased 2 VS zip up sports bras, Metamucil, and a button up top. I will be staying in a hotel for a few days post-op. If anyone has advice on any additional supplies I should have, please share with me. I want to make sure I'm prepared!

4 more days!!!

I can't believe it's almost time! My bags are pretty much ready to go. I had my pro-op on Monday, purchased all my supplies and now I'm going to enjoy my boys and spend some fun times in the sun with them until we leave on Sunday.
I did have a slight panic attack about the lift I choose however, after my pre-op phone appointment Dr. Rand's nurse was able to put my mind at ease and I'm ready to move forward with the peri-areolar lift

Dr. rand was amazing at my initial consult! His staff made me feel very comfortable!! I had had 2 previous consults and I'm so glad I continued searching! I'm 5 hours away from Seattle but I feel the drive will be well worth it!

Arnica tablets are a good thing to have on hand. A heating pad can be helpful too for a sore back. Definitely plan on having loose, comfortable clothing for the first couple of days. Bring gallon sized Ziplock bags and keep some in your car and also keep some with you in the hotel room. Some people are lucky and don't have nausea, but I threw up several times the first day and there's no way I could have made it to the toilet. :-/ Bring extra Ziplock bags so you can have your caregiver fill them up with ice from the hotel ice machine. Definitely pack water bottles and snacks for the hotel. Bland, high fiber snacks are good. Look up places that will deliver food to the hotel since your caregiver should stay with you for the first 24 hours and you likely won't be up for going on a food run. Obviously it's very important to bring your prescriptions. I'm sure your PS will have you bring them with you to the surgery. If pain meds make you itch you can have Benadryl on hand to help with that. It will also help knock you out so you can sleep through the pain/discomfort. That's all I can think of for now. :)

375 cc on both sides. I don't want to go real big. I thought that sounded big but after trying on the implants I think they will be ok
