6 weeks post and doing great

I have been debating this procedure since I was in...

I have been debating this procedure since I was in my 20s. Then I had children and started a career and put it on the back burner. I finally made up my mind and I went in for consult...he did not measure anything and I did not know this was standard procedure. I left there rethinking what we discussed and agreed to because of my obsession with research.I am 5'4 125- my rib cage is 27and I tried to measure bwd and got 16- --the ps took pics and said allergan 45 hp 450cc...what do you think? I want to be a very full c small d.

I am going to one more consult today with the ps.....

I am going to one more consult today with the ps...I am bringing my friend along for reassurance. I want to be 100% comfortable with the decision. I also have a list of questions now that I didn't have at the first appointment. going into this I just wanted big boobs, but after reading and researching there is more to know..I was unsure based on the first consult because I was not giving reasons as to why he picked the size implant and he didn't take one measurement. thanks real self for giving me a knowledge base!

I went today for another consult and tried on...

I went today for another consult and tried on 450cc again as well as 500.. I left the decision up to him. I told ho\im today if I was your wife how would you want her to look. He said he will do sizers in the OR and put int he best fit..

so I paid for the procedure. I was sad to write the check but felt rich for one tiny second. it feels more real knowing they are paid for. I cant wait for April 12th to get here.

One more week to go....so excited

night one sucked! no sleep chest felt as if it was going to rip through my skin. the ps told my mom I am so thin and my skin very thin it was hard to work with. he said he had to change his procedure? I am feeling better once I start moving but laying upright hurts want to put sports bra on but the ones I got are a tad too small. I think they look great

can someone please tell me when the morning boob gets better. I sleep through the night but when I go to move it hurts so dang bad!!!!- input please

I am off all meds thank the Lord. I feel 90 % normal. I have my first appointment today to show the ps how I am doing. no pain ,bruising or itching. I can honestly say that it was easier than I thought. I have three children and a great support system. I have not lifted or had to do anything for myself and I think that is key. you may feel as if you can, but don't chance it. enjoy the rest.

I had my post opp. yesterday and he said they are looking perfect. he did say if I could go braless do it if I feel ok. does anyone else do the braless thing. he also said I could message but there is no evidence out necessarily helps. they just feel so tight still.

got my strips off and noticed dried blood can I clean that???? Will it hurt.....can I put stuff on them

I noticed a tiny tender lump on the outer part my left breast. it is almost next to the arm pit. when I push it out moves and I think it is the silicone implant. could that be it and what should I do. this breast is also tight and I have sharp shooting pains in it. this all happened today!

I can finally feel normal. no more meds of any...

I can finally feel normal. no more meds of any kinds. I still have a tiny throbbing but it only lasts for a few seconds and comes and goes. I have 100% sensation no numbing,no pain. I do have high profile so I am still high and not soft yet. I know that comes with time. my ps told me it is up to me of I want to massage. I think I do but you tube videos look like the girls have already d and f....I still have scab by incision so I am scared !!!!!' I also want to use a cream / oil/ strips but ps said not necessary but I want to... any thoughts on both....if you want to tell about massages that is great! thanks boobie friends

i showered, did the hair, and looked at the boobies (of Course) and wished they were bigger ...omg please go away!!! i am feeling sad and the scale number is not where I want it to be due to the lack of working out. I officially started the paleo lifestyle today and will be on the treadmill tomorrow!feeling low :(..I also feel like i should have had my nipple adjusted because it is so low on the bottom of the implant, but it was before the augmentation. Girls....will the nipple stay and the implant drop?????????????????????

So i am 100% in love with them ..the changes are...

so i am 100% in love with them ..the changes are seen daily but i will post monthly. hope everyone is well , recovering and in love. Ugh..going back to work after two weeks off will be hard

So I went for a short walk and I felt my breasts...

so I went for a short walk and I felt my breasts getting swollen. my bra seemed very tight. I did purchase scar away sheets and love how.they feel on the scar. it takes the band irritation away. I really don't see a difference in the dropping but I can slightly push them together. there is a psychic at my work and she had no idea I had surgery and told me I need to slow down and let my body recover. I came back to one week early! bizarre huh.

So things are going ok.. I have stabbing pain...

so things are going ok.. I have stabbing pain still around incision area. it is manageable and comes and goes. I am so tight massaging feels pointless. what are thoughts about massage

6 weeks and feeling good

I am doing better. I still have tingling where the incisions are. I worked out with kettle bells and quit. I have never swung them with boobies before. they got in the way. I still feel a tad tight in the morning. i's that normal???? I have not been measured yet but I still need to drop a lot more. hope everyone is well!

bigger than I thought :)

I finally after 7 weeks got measured. I measured a 32 DD..wow that was exciting. I guess a smaller band size means a bigger cup???? not sure

He was recommended based on his meticulous work at a surgery center where my mom works. I really love his personality. I will travel to his office to cut some expenses.

They look great! Any dropping yet? Is there a lot of pressure up high? Mine seem to feel better when I massage them at night.

some dropping but feeling like there are two balls on there. I really am happy with the size. I do massage but not too much. my ps didn't recommend. I slept last night without a bra and love it!!!!' went back to gym with two bras on and did well. I only feel pressure when I bend over...like they are going to pop off

Well look at you! You look great! I am wondering if you may need to be strapped down? I too was still riding high ( not at high as you) BUT i have only been strapped down for one day and already i see a big difference! ;)

can you tell me massage techniques. my ps didn't recommend

I haven't tried strap.....but the more I work out the more they are dropping

Oh I would be happy not to drop anymore. I can't imagine being that high up, but I'm sure yours will drop eventually.

You look great lady! I am one week post op 450 under muscle. I kind of freaked out that im not dropping as fast as I hoped. I've been on here checking out other's experiences. Based on my research it really does take 3 months to see the final result for under the muscle. Hang in there. You'll look great before the end of the summer - just in time to rock a new suit!

yes i tried on a tank top without a bra and loved it very much. I love the upper pole fullness.i hate bathing suits unless i am wearing sarong. Maybe i will fix those too! lol
  • Reply
You're looking great! I have mod plus and still high and square too. :( hopefully the time goes by fast when they drop and fluff. I think it's ok to take it slow so your skin can stretch to make room. If it did it super fast, it'd result in stretch marks! Happy healing ;)

Everything I've read (even my ps said) its very normal to go through the blues post surg. I think you look fabulous and once they drop (which they will!!) you'll be soooo happy! Numbers on a scale are just that..numbers. Please don't beat yourself up! You're beautiful, you have beautiful new breasts and you DESERVE to take the time to let yourself heal. I can only imagine how hard it is...but just be patient. Good things come to those who wait (and pay big bucks for boobs! Lol!).

@twobabies_thanks....I am the gotta have it now type and this takes time
  • Reply
Yeah...I'm not very patient either! Lol! That's why I'm having my face and boobs done at the same time! :)) Practice what I preach much??

Your results are great! I went to a doc that didnt take measurements either and I was kinda skeptical about it. I know girls that have good results by him but want to know what fits my body best so I decided i wasnt as comfortable with not much knowledge on what size i needed. I have a consult with a doc on may 9 also. He has great before and after pics too :) I hope I can get over my nervousness I am so use to do things on my own. It'll b a change for a few days.

You look great! Have you talked to your ps about the lump yet? It can hurt to have it looked at. I hope I recover as well as you have!
