I am so excited about my upcoming surgery! I had my final Preop with my doctor and it is just so awesome. I really, really like him. He takes time to listen and explain everything...plus, I got his name from RealSelf!
I am 5'5", 140 pounds. I have an active life being in the school system and with three boys. I am doing this surgery on my spring break and hoping to be able to attend school back that next week.
We decided to go with 500cc moderate silicone implants. I currently wear a 36B. I am hoping to fill out a D size, closer to a DD. (I had a size D when I was breast feeding and it was very nice.)
I am going to head to Walmart for my sports bras (foam, zip front) and make sure I have frozen peas and miralax! My 6 prescriptions have been sent to the pharmacy. (Still don't know why I need so many).
Anyway - I am SO EXCITED and hoping for a very full look. I will update more as I get closer! Thanks for all your support!

I am so excited! Its all I been thinking about and I just keep reading about the different stories and experiences posted on this site. I just love it!
I went to Walgreens to pick up my meds today. Here is what I have:
Starting to feel a little overwhelmed with it all. Some bottles have 1 pill in them and a couple others have 10, 15, or 40. I am hoping to not need all the pain meds. I had all three of my boys with natural labor so I do have a higher tolerance for pain, but different types of pain have different effects on me. I see some people talking about Arnica. Is that something I can get at Walgreens? Is it a pill?
I got two sports bras from Walmart, two different sizes. Not sure what I will need. Dr. just said get a large, but they didn't come in those sizes. I got a D and a DD. (hoping for a DD!)
Here are my stats again:
140 pounds (Lots of muscle in thigh and butt)
Getting 500cc silicone, under the muscle, under the breast incision
Surgery is set for Tuesday morning at 11:15, I have to be there at 10:15. I have reading materials for after and a cozy button down shirt.
I can't wait! Will update more with post op pics!!! Thank goodness for Daylight Savings...puts me 1 hour closer! :-)

Question: what type of bottoms did everyone wear to the surgery center? I am thinking sweat pants (ugh), but at least I will be comfy. :-) drinking water, water, and more water. I also made a few light meals for after... Not sure if I'll have much if an appetite.
T-2 days and I will be joining the ranks with most of you!!!!! So excited my boobie friends!
I have been busy all day...well trying to stay...

Then headed back to surgery. They put these things on my legs to circulate blood and patches on my back to monitor monitor heart rate and my breathing. They said when I went to sleep, they put a breathing tube down my throat. Glad to be sleep for that part. The last thing I remember was the doctor holding my hand, rubbing my hand. I was so nervous.
Woke up in recovery. Surgery took about 50 minutes my husband said. I was drowsy an it did feel like a medium size child was sitting on my chest. Nurse mixed my pills with applesauce cuz I can't the larger ones. She fed it to me. She was just so nice.
Came home and rested the rest of the day. Took all my meds on time. Was still taking all my pain meds all day. I was able to eat pretty well an start on the miralax.
Now I'm up, day 2, haven't even been 24 hours yet. I'm feeling sore, but really good. Need to ice some this morning and have my follow up with the doctor this morning at 10:45. I have taken pics and will post shortly!
OverAll, I love my boobs from what I can see!!! I get the ACE bandage off today!
Went to a follow up yesterday (Wednesday) and got...

Post op day 2/3. Feeling a lot better. My husband is keeping me ahead on my meds. Still can't lift my arms over my head, but I get a larger range of motion more and more everyday. They seem still swollen and high up. Still feel that pull from under my arm pits.
I am going to try to shower today or at least get in a small bath. I will post naked boobie pics then.
I STILL LOVE THEM!!! I feel so much better with them even tho they aren't perfect right now. It was so worth it. I am in minimum pain, but wouldn't change it at all. Love these girls!!!
Day 3/4: still trying to pull myself off the meds....

I don't regret my decision. I love my boobs and they way they make me feel. It was the best decision I ever made and just a small hiccup.
Good thoughts are appreciated!

I have been wearing silicone strips with my incisions everyday and those things have really seemed to help! The scar is blending in well and will be covered in the fold once the breast completes the drop.
Most importantly, even though I went with 500HP silicone, I can conceal them if I want and no one can tell I've had a boob job. Of course I can show them as will to, but its great.
I posted 1 new pic - will take more and post more tomorrow! Thanks for listening.
My Doctor: Jonathan Heistein, MD
Awesome so far. He took the time to answer all my questions and was really nice. I will post more about his work after the surgery.
