So Ready to Finally Do This! - South Carolina

My husband and I have 4 beautiful babies. All were born via C-section and were breastfed at least a few months. So needless to say, it has taken a toll on my body and the way I feel about myself. After going thru 4 pregnancies, I am so ready to feel good about my body again. I am 5'3 weigh 155 and am a size 8. I have about 10 more pounds that I would love to lose before having this done, but I am also impatient and am ready to do it now! The last 10 lbs always seems the hardest to lose! I am self employed and keep pretty busy with my kids, so I try to make it to the gym 2-3 times a week on a good week. I am having a TT and BA with lift this Saturday and am very excited. I haven't told any family or friends about the procedure. I really dont want to have to explain myself to anyone or hear comments about how much I am spending. It was a hard enough decision for me to spend this amount of money on myself, that any negative comments would just make me feel worse. This site is a great way to get input from others that have already had it done and to share my excitement with someone other than my fabulous husband:)

So, I am having a hard time deciding what size boobs to go with. I am a small C now, and really just want a natural lifted look. I am considering silicone 275cc high profile. I am going into my PS office tomorrow to try out more sizes....hope I find the right fit!

Ok, I went to my pre-op yesterday. After talking with my PS, we have decided to go with silicone Mentor 325cc. He said because I have enough of my own breast tissue 325cc will give me a nice natural look and should make me a full C or small D. I feel good about the decision, but am still nervous...from everything I have read saying to "go bigger" , I just really dont want any regrets.
We went over all the last minute questions my husband and I had, the meds i will be taking, I was sized for my compression garments, and before pictures were taken. Today I have been cleaning like a mad women! Finishing the last little bit of laundry, organizing everything, working on last minute work details and playing with my kiddos as much as I can. I am so freakin excited!! Come on Saturday!!

Tomorrow morning it is finally going to happen :) I am excited and nervous. Worried mostly about being confined to my bed for a few days and not be able to be up and helping my husband with our kids. I am not one to sit around, and I never watch TV during the day. Who knows, maybe I will enjoy the break from my hectic schedule, and finally catch up on much needed sleep!
Im off to bed, have to be up at 4:30 and in my ps office by 5:30..... :)))))

My surgery for Saturday was cancelled due to my PS being up all night doing emergency surgery. So I had surgery the following day. Sunday 13th. I am one day post-op. I was in alot of pain coming out the surgery, and was very nauseous, they gave me fenagrin to help with the nausea. I dont remember the ride home, just arriving home around 10 at night and going straight to my bed. Woke up around 2 needing pain meds, and took them on an empty stomach and then started eating crackers. Learned my lesson to eat BEFORE taking the meds. As I vomited it all up. This morning I felt better, not alot of pain just soreness, mostly under my boobs. My appetite is back! MY husband made me pancakes, then I got up to walk around and go pee. I feel a bit loopy from the pain meds. But all in all, not to bad, just sore. I already love what I see even with the compression garments on! Well, back to nap time for me.

I know your surgery was a year ago but I do have a question. I am also a resident of Columbia SC. I am definitely considering a TT and Lipo. Can you send me your doctor's information. Also, I'm new to this site, can you send pics of how great you look. Thank you TRS

Thanks ShellBell! I am so excited for Saturday. I didn't have alot of time to prepare. I scheduled my surgery for 3 weeks after my first consult. So I am hoping I have everything I need. I still need to pick up Arnica and Bromolein. And find a wedge for after surgery. I also plan on posting before pics sometime this week.

Thank you! Yes, I think I have made a decision. I really liked the look of 350cc high profile. I have my pre-op tomorrow, so I will discuss with my ps and get his opinion.
