15 weeks and 2 days! I don't want to wish away my summer but I can't wait for my new puppies! Should go by fast though....in one week and 4 days I will be heading to Florida for a week......the. got a 15 year class reunion as well as a family reunion at the beginning of June.....then end of June another vacation..... so really only leaving me with July to really start the count down....kinda makes me wish I had scheduled it earlier in the summer....but I have too much $$ in all my swimsuits, may as well get the use put of them. I have a bad VS addiction but I have not bought a bra since October since I knew I would be getting the puppies soon!

I will get to show them off at my husband's company picnic in mid august....it is always at Holiday World, i may not be able to enjoy the rides but i sure will enjoy showing them off in the water park!

I haven't seen anyone near my scheduled date! The anticipation is killing me! But it is something I have wanted for a long time and now I want toake sure it is exactly what I want....and I don't wanna be in recovery all summer! Any others out there with a far out surgery date? Mine may end up being bumped up but of so only by a week or two!
Wow your breasts look nice already! I am the same as you, 34c but I se much more deflated. I had all of these beautiful new bras and what a waste to not use them. Like u said so much money invested and now I have to buy new ones lol.
Reply
Thanks. Mine aren't bad....I just wish they were full like they are when I wear my bombshell. I haven't bought a bra forms since last October knowing I would be getting one this summer. And all my suits are last year or older.I leave for vacation next Monday so if I buy one in Florida it will be in thoughts of using next summer or end of this summer...lol

Sorry you have to wait so long! I really was thinking about waiting until fall to try and hide it better (bigger clothes and sweatshirts, etc) and so that by next summer I'd be totally healed And dropped but I was too impatient!!

Yeah but weather they have dropped or not they are so sexy just after surgery!

Well 13 weeks to go and this week should fly by since I am on vacation in Florida!


I was wondering how everyone paid for their puppies? Did you save and pay cash for them...get a loan or did you buy them on on the credit card or did you get the loan thru the credit company that doctors use?
I'm scheduled for July 12, two months from today, and yes it's killing me to wait!! But, it's good to give me time to mentally and physically prepare.

I agree! I read your story earlier today...so cool to surprise your husband! I couldnt do it....i need his opinoin plus we dont have family around to take care of me! Mine likes big so I could have the most ridiculous BA and he would be happy with it!

Just for back from Destin, Florida.... kinda sucked having all those bikinis and unable to buy due to unknown size. I did. Buy one it is pretty hot pink shimmer and I also bought a black dress that with my bombshell on looked amazing on my boobs! I just don't know of the bikini is big enoughi bought the top in the biggest size I could find which was a large.....of not it will be my pornstar bikini to only wear at home!

Woohoo! Just booked an adventurous getaway with just the hubby! Booked it halfway from my BA...so 6 weeks I will be whitewater rafting and six weeks after that I will be on day three of my post op of new boobies!
Just out of curiosity, why did you pick saline? They're going to look great, good size choice. Can't wait to read how it goes for you!
Reply
My doctor suggested saline and I was unbias to either one. I figured she is the professional and took her suggestion. But I am glad she did. I feel safer knowing if something happened to them then my body would absorb the saline.
Reply
Did you discuss how many cc's you will be going? Or what profile. I never asked roughly what size I would end up I just chose 475cc's cause I loved the way they looked. Profile will be moderate plus saline

? about recovery time

So at the time of my consult I was asked how long I could take off for work and I said as much time as I needed.....only problem is looks like I am switching jobs. I am a server and will continue being a server just somewhere else. How long is the recovery time? We didn't really discuss this since me taking off wasn't a problem. The new job is already waiting for me to come back from my tonsil surgery to have their opening day since I will be their head waitress.....
Are you excited/nervous yet? Your op date is creeping by :) I'm excited for you!!!! I can't wait to see your results. especially when you're going between 550-650cc's
Reply
Not nervous yet. Still seems so far away and have another surgery to get ready for on 6/14.. but when I think how much I have going on I think it is so close!
Reply
Your breasts are beautiful....why are you doing this? You do know they can come with problems and they don't last forever. I only say this because i too had them and recently had them removed and sooo happy with my new small breasts. (I hated being part of the 'boob club) as well as other things. If your breast were tiny i wouldn't say anything but they are so pretty! Best wishes

10 weeks to go!

Wow! Time is sneaking up in me! I hadn't counted for two weeks and the magically went by so fast! I'm so busy thru the month of June that these 10 weeks will be here before I know it!

I'm confused on so many buying bras before hand. How do you know if they will fit? I will wait til after surgery to buy them.

I keep having nightmares that they are so huge! I mean like super huge! Anyone else?
I took off work on the Thursday I had the surgery and went back the next Tues...the day I went back was rough but not as bad as I thought it would be. That Monday was Memorial Day too so I actually only had to take 2 days off of work! Your time is getting closer!! Have you decided for sure yet what size? Believe it or not, I went with 650 on the right and 700 cc on the left and I tried on bandeaus and a bunch of tops today and I am only a medium!! It is just so crazy!
Reply
Looks like I am going to take that Thursday off of surgery thru the whole following week and come back 10 days later. Today is my first day off for two weeks and I have only been at my job 5 days. I have worked with them in the past so they are good with me being off. They don't know I am doing my surgery in August I just told them my husband and I were taking time off to spend with the kids before school started. She is a family person so understood. As for cc's I still don't know, and won't til pre op in July. I dont care about the numbers just ad long as my final out come puts me at DD or DDD! BTW yours look beautiful!
Reply
I would never put myself through a serious surgery like this one if I had your breasts, they look amazing, not even small. I respect your decision though and wish you luck.

8 weeks to go!

Hadn't really kept track of time lately so when I went and counted I was shocked that I am only 8 weeks away!

While I was in the shower yesterday I couldn't help but notice that my boobs seemed bigger....could be all the weight I have gained (14#s) but they seem firmer to me.

My prep appointment is at the end of July, I need to call to find out for sure when...I never added it to my phone so it has slipped my mind!

I am having surgery tomorrow for my tonsillectomy so he weight I gained should be off soon....not the best kind of diet but i a sure it will jump start me back into my old eating routine!

Good luck to all of you joining boobie land here soon and to all you just thinking about it!
I'm scheduled for August 2nd! so we will be going through recovery the same time! :) it's so exciting. I wish I could do it tomorrow.

Idk....I had my tonsils done Friday and now I'm thinking do I reallywant to put myself in more pain so soon?? I bought me a bra to get my excitement back up!
Reply
Is your excitement back?! Just think how worth it the next pain will be ;p
Reply

well i did it.

I kept saying I wasn't going to buy a bra til after my BA but I bought one! 34DDD! I'm hoping to fill it out! I will post pics in it before....only about 7 weeks to go!
I agree with others, I'm already jealous of your natural look! :-) I'm sure you will have fantastic results and an easy recovery since your procedure shouldn't be complicated. An the time will fly by! I booked mine a couple months out and Im now down to 5 day!!! Eeaakkks!!!! :-)
Reply
Thanks!
Reply
Your natural boobs are perky and pretty! I'm a wee but jealous! Lol. How are you feeling after having your tonsils out? I had mine out as an adult as well, and it really sucks. Drink a crap ton of water to keep from having ear pain and to keep the scabs moist so that they don't feel like knives stabbing as you swallow as they come off.

6 weeks and 4 days til my boobies come in!

I keep thinking maybe I should push up my date but I haven't even went back to work or recovered completely from my last surgery! I have waited this long I can wait a little longer! I know with as fast as time has flown by it will be here before I know it!
It's going to be here before we no it . 5 wks 4 days for mine . I'm getting so excited to get mine fixed and to get Gel implants . So have you decided on what size your going to get ? Are you going to get Gel or saline . I bet your so excited .
Reply
I'm excited....cc's Idk and don't care just want the final product to be a DD or DDD. At my first appointment we decided on saline. Other than that I have no clue til my previous op on the 29th of July... one month from tomorrow :)
Reply
One thing is for sure you will get at least DDD with saline . I loved my saline before I had revision . And mine are soft and feel nateral to me . It is safer that's why I got them in my first BA . I have good insurance so the MRI won't cost much so I'm going for the Gel in my revision . I've heard they are softer and look so real .

got my 34DDD bra in the mail today...

I got my big girl bra today....I think I may lean more towards a double D....three puppies are huge! I can't see my toes!

oooopps wasnt done....

...

Even with my bombshell on with that bra there is still a lot of nothing under the breast that needs filled out.... I would say almost double the amount of what I have!
Hi. I was reading your story and I was surprised to read your last commend on your breast tissue. You have a lot of breast tissue to go with silicone and expecially with overs. There is no reason for you to go with unders, I would look into that if I were you. But then again, if I were you I would not change my natural boobs, they are perfect they way they are now. Good luck anyway.
Reply
Thanks, she said silicone or saline was my choice I like the idea of saline better....as for over or under I'm pretty sure she said over but I could be wrong. I'm pretty confident in her opinion she is the professional. But I could have misunderstood what we were talking about since at the time everything she said was a different language to me. We consulted with her for almost two hours so I may have not heard her completely.

One month from today is my surgery! Hard to believe here on out I will be or real self will be counting down the days! The past few months have flown by so fast but then again I have been so busy, not a lot planned for this month so have a feeling it isn't going to pass by as fast!

I'm still healing from my tonsillectomy, I can eat and do almost anything sometimes the back of my tongue gets sore and still hurts to yawn or whistle. Food still has a nasty metallic taste to everything vegetables aren't as bad. But soda and sweets are horrible! But i a healed enough to start looking forward to my next surgery!!!
I know the feeling lol I have a month and 8 days :DDDDD
Reply
Its like a whole new excitement.. lol all weekend long all I could think about was Monday is one month! 21 days til my previous op appointment!!! That just seems like it is around the corner! I guess it is since I made these dates back in April! And last October I bought my last VS bra and told my husband that it would be my last til I had my BA! I can't wait to go bra shopping! Or any shopping for that matter! I haven't been in almost a year! Figured what is the point when nothing may not fit next year!

Exactly!!! I booked my surgery date the end of June and I feel I've been waiting long enough I can't imagine if I had booked it in April :P I'd be desperate :)!!

i had info i didnt know i had!

So I pulled out my paper work from my consult so I could email my wish pictures and on it I find what profile, style and what she is planning on using! I had no idea I had all this information! Sadly and I have been thru all the I do before. At least twice and never realized it! Anyway on my consult papers she had put style 68 and my booklets are all nuettral so I'm assuming those are the ones she uses, HP----wow! 500-650 cc's, also have abbreviations for IMF I'm guessing that is under the breast cut and SG guessing that means above the muscle!!! I guess I should start doing some research on what she has down so I can ask appropriate questions at my prep appointment two weeks from today!!!!!!
The wait is a killer isn't it?! So much information and options to drive yourself nuts with. I'm off to google style 68 now! :)

3 weeks!

3 weeks from today is my surgery! One more full week of work, then my pre op the following weeks on Monday then the following week surgery!!! I so can't believe my time is finally about here!!!

time for the must have list

So my prep appointment is a week from tomorrow and once I leave from there I am planning on getting my stuff that I will need for surgery then.....so what is your must have thing on your list, or if you have had it done what is something you didn't think about having and needed it later.
Oh yea. Get some bendy straws and I always kept some boost under the bed in case I didn't feel like eating but needed something nutritional in me. And Rest a lot!! Once the pain subsides you won't want to but your body will heal better and faster if you do.
Reply
Thanks! I have bendy straws from my tonsillectomy... no one told me that you couldn't drink from a straw after that procedure without it coming back out thru my nose!!! I believe I still have some boost from last months surgery too! Thanks! Yourd look good!
Reply
That was my question too Violet. Lol. How many cc's. I think Violet are 2 of the biggest following everybody. I got 700 cc unders saline mod plus nipple incision. I was very small tho. 36a-b depending on the bra. I ended up with a 36DDD. I think Violet got 800. Check out her profile. She is a wealth of info. She looks great!! I love my results too!! Good luck!! And my best advice to you, if undecided on cc's, take the larger. I can't count how many women have said, I should have gone bigger!! I NEVER thought I would end up with a DDD but I'm glad I did!!! Lol.

is it just me?

I get reviews every time someone new post and to me many of them seem fake. The go in so much detail with names of the office staff and doctor that they really don't give to much details about themselves. And never show pictures of before and after....and never follow up with the review. So to me it seems like someone in the office is just posting to promote the doctor. Does anyone else feel this way???



On another note...two weeks from today is surgery day for me!!!
I guess some post could be to promote a dr .
Reply
Yea maybe ... But most of these stories are genuine and women are sharing there stories and pictures. For me, once I picked my doctor and had my BA, I built a strong relationship with the nurses and staff. They are my first contact if I need anything, not my PS (mine is a busy man). After going through the process I understand that my PS's staff is just as important as he is. I have talked to my PS a total of 20 minutes and I'm 2 weeks PO and LOVE my results so far. Also, some people are uncomfortable posting picture. I won't without a swimsuit or sports bra on. So in sum, yea maybe some doctors are having people post fake posts but if you focus on the women active on this site this this a GREAT support system. Good luck.

the waiting game!

I think waiting on the hospital to call letting me know my surgery time is the hardest wait so far! Hopefully they call today!! When I was at my preop appointment she said I just had a cancellation for the 6th of you want it... it was so tempting! But my mom is meeting me in st Louis that morning to get the kids and taking them to six flags, my husband already had the day scheduled off and I already had everything worked out to have time off at work, just seemed more of a headache to switch it to two days sooner so I just kept it to where it was at! I figured I have waited this long what was 2 days?
Waiting is the hardest! I will write thoughts on my pre-op visit later today so check my review update.

So i called the hospital to get my surgery time... as of right now it is a 2:45!!! That kinda sucks being in middle of the day but at least I will get a good nights sleep before having to get up early to make the two hour drive!! Things could change so won't know for sure my time until Tuesday!!!


Surgery has been paid for only thing left to pay for now is the hospital fee but that is due the day of surgery! Can't believe how fast it is coming up!
mine is at 5 or 5:30 but that stinks since i cant eat all day...earlier would be better when you sleep and not worry about eating but I guess its the same for you. I at least can eat a little something at 8am but prob wont eat again til 8 pm...lol

^^^almsot here^^^

We had the kids award banquet last night for swim team and I wore my favorite pink v neck T-shirt with my bombshell bra and my husband just kept staring and saying I can't believe those are almost real! He is just as excited as I am! We have begun our farewell to them...the bombshell I had on last night will be burnt this weekend... I always wanted to burn a bra! It is litteraly hanging together by several threads....it was my first one I bought when they came out with them and had been worn many times since!
Hey, Walmart now has the bed rest pillows since school is starting soon. It was my favorite thing when I was first recovering. You said your range is 450-650. Why such a big range? I was a 34b, got 500cc and am a 34DD but will most likely be a DDD once they drop. You have a lot of natural breast tissue so I wouldn't think that you would need so many cc's.

You can still get pretty and cute bras in bigger sizes . You can order them . I had to order my bras before revision and I will have to order them again after I drop and fluff . The stores don't carry 34 band in larger cups here . I get mine from ( freshpair ) .

Am.sknr-'my size never changed. My add told me at 2 weeks to go shopping and I was like am I not going to shrink some? He just smiled and shook his head and said, nope- this is what it is.

day one

I have only taken aleave so far today for pain. Don't really have much of it. MY swelling is all the way to my collar bone. I haven't seen them yet...but afraid they are going to be smaller than what I was hoping for. I find out what size I got on Monday...I am hoping for at least 500 cc's! Still doesn't seem like my boob job is over! Boobs aren't causing any pain. My right arm hurts but as the day went on I could get more range of motion.my stern is painful a little and every once in a while I get a burning sensation at my incisions. Not bad and not for long. Yesterday I was pissed by how much pain I was in and how little some of you girls were in, but today is much better and hardly any pain. Other than getting into my husband's huge F350 truck that was kinda hard getting in and out of. good luck ladies!
I'm glad to hear you are recovering fairly easy! waiting to see them is the worst! Just keep in mind, for when you do get to peak at them, that as time goes by they really do tend to look bigger. It takes time for your skin to stretch to accommodate them, so they will look larger after a few weeks. I had boobie greed after my surgery because I couldnt get the size I thought I wanted, and I never thought mine looked big at all, but then I tried on real bras! Lol... Can't wait to see how yours turn out!!!!

Hopefully Monday I will get to put on some new bra just to see them in it!

cant take it anymore!

I plastic wrapped my whole Eskimo bra and took a bath....now heading to town to have a hairdresser wash and style my hair! I'm only half way thru this whole no shower time and it is driving me nuts! Aside from needing a shower I am feeling great! Wasn't nearly as sore as I was yesterday morning when I woke up! Was able to roll myself up all night when I needed to fer up without yelling for my husband! Looking forward to meeting the girls still!

ooops forgot to add the pics
I can't believe you took a bath!! I just have been sponge bathing so far. I had to take my bra and straps off to wash them really quick so I got to see the girls and take pics, super excited!! I am totally happy with my size, I'm sure you will be as well. The bra I went home in is a 34 D and I only went 450 mod plus. I'm sure you will be much bigger like you wanted since you went bigger...you will look fabulous!!!

It was a very shallow bath. And I ran into town and had it shampooed and put back in a pony tail. When shearkede up I told her I wanted to stay in the DD range so she wrote 450/500 on my chest I just don't know what it is yet. Heading to your page...

Good morning St Louis friend. I'm glad you are feeling less pain today. Me too. I'm going to get my hair shampooed and blow dried this afternoon. Can't wait! I sponged bathed and put make up on this morning. Plan to walk the park today too... Well at least around the block. :-; we both go on Monday for post op. I can't wait to hear how it goes. Have a great weekend.

This is the best I could do in peeking...my 10 year old said to put hem up til Monday. She says o can wait to see them then.
Hey so you peeked!!! :) Just 1 more day and we can finally look properly and be more free in our new boobs! Wondering how you are feeling? Are you doing ok with your meds? Taking it easy ok? I can't remember if your kids are older or younger...mine are younger but so far they have done pretty good not jumping on me or anything. I just told them I had a bad tummy ache. :) Don't be worried about the size, I'm sure they will be perfect!! Remember they are suppose to drop and fluff as well so we have to patient for that part as well!! Good luck waiting till tomorrow!! I get checked out at 3pm...hoping that time comes fast!

My daughter is 10 and been the nest care giver...my son is 12 and when he went to get me something cold to put on them he said he put this on your frankenboobs...lol j feel fine but today just feel sick to my stomach. I think it is the meds. and not eating a lot. I'm just not hungry. today I just want to sleep. My eyes are so heavy. Could be from all the shopping yesterday. I can see they aren't any triple D's and to me only look like regular D's I think I would feel better of I could just see them in some of my regular clothes! That way i can see the change. I relay wanted to look like I do in my bombshell and with all the swelling I believe that is exactly what I ended up with!

Day 4

Here are some pics
Fantastic!!! You must be thrilled!! So sexy!!

You would think...but I feel like they are way smaller than I hoped...get I fit into the bra I hoped to...it must just be me
Reply
Well just remember the bigger you go the more they fall later. Don't take this wrong... I loved my big girls when I was young but sometimes if you go too big it comes with complications later. You are a beautiful woman with amazing ta tas!!! I think it's normal to think they are not big enough at first but as they settle I think they always look bigger....at least mine did:-)

They look great! Give it some time, they might start looking bigger to you once they settle in some. Good luck at your PO tomorrow. :)

They look great. Hoping mine turn out like yours. I'm going with the 700cc Extra HP Style 45 Natrelle Silicone gel under the muscle. My BA date is Aug 26, 2013 getting a little nervous but excited at the same time.

post op appointment

Sorry....a little late posting this... husband had in office facial surgery after my post op and have been running every since.

Anyways my post op went great. I can do light cardio, sleep without a bra on if I want....and can wear a good sports bra...trouble is finding one.

I found out I a 500cc's in my left breast ..and 450 in my right. I was slightly off but she was only going to fix it of she found 25 Cc's difference....now my smaller boob is the slightly bigger boob but really isn't much difference.

I went to Victoria secrets to be measured before my appointment.......34DD or 34DDD depending on the bra!!! Yippy!

Next appointment is the 28th!
Looking amazing :) sports bra: I have underarmor armor bra, great support- only goes to a DD but I can wear it fine (I'm 34DDD or 34F/G depending on where I purchase) because of the shape and stretch. I have actually 3 of those. I also have champion high impact (2 different styles) they go to DD, but do ok with me. Both I've liked alot and have good support (high impact activities, no bouncing ;) enjoy!!
Reply
I bought a few at walmart today....nothing that supports all that great but enough to get me thru work these next few weeks!

I'm happy to hear your appointment went good . All bet you will wear a size E cup when you d&f . I wish I could sleep without wearing a sports bra . I'm to wear one for ever to sleep so they will always have some support . I guess that comes with having big boobies and keeping them looking good .

tape off

I am not suppose to take tape off til end of this week but the residue sticking to everything was pulling at me all day! Cleaned it up and added new tape to them. Here are pics of the incisions
I have dissovable stitches, but my steri strips are still and its been weeks, my doctor said they will come off by themselves in the shower.

I had my husband pull mine off I couldn't take the stickiness to everything. Wishing i hadn't now though

I hope mine stay on for weeks!

first day to show off the girls

So yesterday was my husbands company picnic at holiday world (water park and amusement) everyone who works in his location knew about my surgery so all of them wanted to meet up with him so they could see them. I did notice tons of stares and lots of under the breath comments but what absolutely surprised my husband and I the most was how many woman stared at them...even glared at them. I just chopped it up as pure jealousy. Felt so good to have something to fill out my bikini top!

Oh and my 10 year old over heard some little girl saying to her flat as a board mom...mom you have tiny "flowers but look at hers she has bog ones!" We heard her mom say shhhh that isn't very nice but I wanted to say oh no she is fine!!! Lol
Ha ha that's very funny!!! Nice eye candy....How often do you have to change your tape and do you have to massage gently your incisions?
Reply
Once my tape fell off it was off for good. I have not been told to massage yet.
Reply
thats odd I starting massaging at one week, to avoid CC

3 week post op pics, appointment and bra shopping.

Had my second check up today she said they looked great, removed my stitches and she said I have no need to massage. Go back 10/28 my scar cream will be in within a week and I will start using that. Light cardio for another 2 weeks then on to whatever. Tight wearing bra for two weeks and then anything I want. Trouble has been finding a good bra. I will continue to wear my surgical bra til then otherwise I will wear the new one I got at Nordstrom. VS I measured at a 34DDD. Nordstrom she measured me at a 34DDD or a 34F which is the same as a triple D, just depends on the maker of the bra. She also said a 32G would fit better in the band. Just didn't have that size to try on in the style I was looking for to see how much different it fit.

My right boob has 50 cc's less and I'm hoping they look more even soon especially in some of those bra pictures. Im just hoping it was the muscle flexed to hold my phone to snap a picture. Otherwise I may do a revision to fix the smaller side. Looking at my before pics I can't see a size difference at all!
Looking great!!!

Thanks!

I think yours look wonderful, I am glad you are this far in recovery. Today is 3 days post op and they now feel so full and swollen tight, I hope that nothing is wrong. I am happy so far and know that the funny shape they have now just takes time to settle. My prep nurse said in three months they will be close to final position, but at six months better and one year will complete the settling/healing stage. It has been nice sharing this journey with you :)

Doing great! Having problems finding bras....bought a comfy one at Khols last night and when I pit it on my husband says great I buy you boobs and now all you wear is granny bras! Went looking a shirt that showed them off just right and no luck! Khols was the only thing open yesterday by the time we finished eating.....sucks loving over an hour to the nearest mall!

So pretty you are! How are you feeling? Bra shopping can be so frustrating... Even more so after a lift!!! No underwire allowed:-( I love your husbands comment!! Sounds like something my husband would say! Haha

4 weeks already!!!!!

Can't believe how fast this time has past! I find myself talking pictures all the time because I feel like they are slowly disappearing I guess that is because they feel like I have always had them. I suppose that is a good thing. Got my scar cream in the mail today so just put some on...so we shall see if it helps fading....
Looking great. Your girls are dropping and catching up to each other.

There looking good ! I buy my bras on line . I didn't think I would because I like to try them on first . I've had really good luck with it . Freshpair is where I buy mine .

need to find....

I need to find a new job to show these babies off....I feel so much more confidence and pure sexiness wearing something where they are on display... lol only thing I can think of is stripping...hahaha! I hate Mondays because that means I am back to t-shirts. I love my low cut tops...I still feel like they are shrinking but do think it is because it is bbecause they feel like they areine that I have had my whole life!
So glad you are feeling great and having fun with your new boobies! My daughter makes $600 a week bar tending two nights a week. Just sayin... ( and she doesn't even have big boobies)

Lol i have thought about doing it in Friday nights.

?????

So I have a friend was unhappy with her first surgery...and now happy with her second. Looking for a thank you gift to the Dr and staff for putting up with her. Wanting it sincere and mature yet funny at the same time. Any ideas?
I totally didn't even notice. Keep in mind that things will still change quite a bit. Mine are a little uneven after having cc correction, but I don't even notice anymore. Just try not to let it get to you and give it time. ;)

I am...it has til January to grow on me or to even out before I make my decision...but will be bringing it up at my next appointment on 10/28

What about the size is bothering you?

5 weeks!

I am sleeping in my stomach...99% pain free and back to my old self just a better version!

How is the cardio going? Any further changes to the one breast? Is the scar cream working? We'd love another updated photo. Hope you are well!

I don't notice a difference with the scar cream. But she says healing up nicely. Posted a few photos along with an update.
