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
13 hours until I check in for surgery :-)!
I can't believe how calm I am tonight! The last couple days I spent a ton of time with my 2 little boys, my oldest was working so we didn't get much time together, but I'm sure he is fine with that ;-). My awesome hubby ran water lines to my flowers yesterday while I played in the sun :-)!! This was a huge relief to me as I usually take about an hour to water every evening. He was worried about me trying to pull hoses and such after surgery. Last night we went to our friends house and watched a movie on a big outdoor screen, such a great way to end our day! Today we traveled to Seattle, checked into our hotel, took a walk, shopped and had a nice dinner. As soon As we got back to the hotel the anesthesiologist called, which made things a little REAL for me :-). We discussed what would happen tomorrow and I now believe. I am all set to go. I took some photos tonight in a swim top for comparison. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers tomorrow, I know I will need them!

Day of treatment
I'm so happy to be done! Today went great! I'm an extremely anxious person and I was completely calm all the way up until I entered the OR. Dr. Rand was so amazing! He came in and held hand while the anesthesiologist prepped me for my IV. This was so nice, and I was able to relax. They gave me a great cocktail and I awoke feeling really groggy but VERY happy!!!:-).
Now I'm relaxing in the hotel room. My amazing hubby has done everything to maker me very comfortable, he ordered dinner and we are now waiting for it to be delivered.
I've been eating pretzels and crackers just to make sure I don't get sick and so far so good. Here is my post op photo. Thanks again lovely ladies!! You have helped make this experience so much better then it would have been due to all your advice. You are all the best!!
1 day post op
I'm feeling amazing! So far just on Tylenol. We have been released and we are headed home to my babies :-)!! I love my results! Last night I did good until I drank a big gulp of water and then experienced some nausea but I was able to control that with Zofran. I have A postop appointment in one week. Again so thankful for my awesome husband!! Thinking of all you ladies scheduled today. You will do great!!
Update to previous post
I took 2 Percocet every 4 hours and then 1 Percocet @ 5 am and I have now moved on to Tylenol. Hopefully I can stay with Tylenol :-). We will see ;-)
