So I saw my surgeon today for a consult and asked...
So I saw my surgeon today for a consult and asked all the questions I had about safety and complications. I found out he suggests saline through the nipple. I have a 34a right now and didnt even think to discuss look or size at this consultation since I was mainly interested in price and getting to know my surgeon. Well after talking about payment with another girl I was taken to 3d imaging. They took my picture and looked at the doctors notes only to tell me he suggested 150-200cc mod ... I told her I was looking to be a full c small d. She told me I was "flat" and that I would look strange with a different size and showed my the 200cc's. I was persistent I wanted larger and have known girls similar in my size that got to a full c with no problem. She went and got another assistant who was much more understanding since she had an augmentation herself from an A. We settled on 250 high profiles most likely overfilled to 300cc's. I still feel uncomfortable with that decision as I wasn't even measured. Also anyone else familiar with the 3D imaging? The boobs look so far apart and strange...

these are the photos for the 250cc high profile. I had my arms to my side and pulled back like I'm stretching my chest and my head tilted up.

More info about me
I'm 5'6 110lbs right now i'm 34A my goal is to be a full C by looks so with implants ill probably measure a D.
Went back today
Well I went in for another consultation with a different doctor (Dr. Pane) that does silicone. However, they said he was in surgery and rescheduled me for the 31st. I will post how that consult goes as I'm ready to book a date now!
Went for consultation with Dr Pane
Instantly knew he was the doctor for me. I might have already made up my mind by my friend recommending him. He asked me about my health AND pulled out measuring tape to find out my BWD and seemed confident we could get me to a size ill be happy with. He was talking 400cc high profile but that decision won't be made until I'm on the table with sizers. So it sounds like he will do as much as he can without complications. I told him I wanted to be a D/full C and he thought that was possible from my pregnancy stretching me out. So, YAY! I'm scheduling a Thursday in September for my surgery date. Probably going to seal the deal with payment and scheduling this Friday. Then my next step is blood work and trying on sizers and figuring out if I want Iv sedation or GA which is dependent on saline or silicone. I'm leaning towards GA with saline. I originally was only going to do iV sedation due to a previous surgery I had (6 hours long) that I had a bad experience with the GA. However finding out how short the surgery will actually be.... Sounds like General will be much easier on me then IV sedation. Plus I'd rather the doctor be able to do his thing and not have to worry about me being semi conscience.
Well I had my pre op today! Definitely asked a million questions! The nurse was great at answering them all. Took blood work, tried on sizers and got a mini tour of where I go surgery day. I also bought my post op "granny bra". I'm now scheduled for a pre op appt with my surgeon 9/5 and my surgery is scheduled 9/12!!! I decided on IV sedation and saline. They will do 500cc if possible!
Had my surgery on the 12th
Day 1 I was in excruciating pain but I called my PS and they said to double the painkillers until it was less severe. So now I'm feeling much better. I even got in the shower and everything.
Forgot to say what I got!
I got mentor saline 420cc max filled to 500cc. My BWD is 12cm so the implants max filled were at 11.7cm.
The "death strap"
Well I have been wearing the death strap since Friday with my compression bra. It's been painful, i was not prepared for how little id be capable of the first 3 days but with my family helping me its been doable. Now my family has gobe home and i have a babysitter helping.
From looking at other implants for months prior to getting my own I can already tell my doctor did a fantastic job! He literally picked the same exact implant and fill amount I did doing my own research on my BWD and results I was looking for. I could not be more impressed and I have already been recommending him left and right. Something about getting implants gives your friends that have known you for years the balls to finally go through with it themselves.
Anyone else following my journey knows that on day one the pain was so bad I was basically immobile and groaning and unable to do anything but throw up. It felt like my chest wall was a pair of blinds that would pull up and down every slight movement i made. i called the nurse line and they said to take twice the painkillers. Well, because I doubled up, I ran out of medication much faster (twice as fast to be exact) then I should have. Anyone else have to call there PS and ask for a refill?
I just did! Because I have been taking arnica 30c x5 3 times daily, and rubbing arnicare gel, and icing every angle of my boobs, and bromelain 500mg x2 and took extra strength Tylenol for the first time instead of my Percocet 4 hours ago because i ran out and I nearly died.
So I just called the 24 hour nurse line and my doctor called in a script for me. But still, I feel like a weakling. I mean, I pushed out a 9lb baby with NO drugs or anything! And yet getting fun bags and I turn into a crybaby who needs meds?? I don't even take them for headaches. I feel like a wimp when I read everyone else's quick recoveries. :(. I really thought I'd be clothes shopping by now!
Went to my first post op
Went to my first post op the other day but my doctor got called into surgery :( so I saw his PA. Seems good so far. Start massage in another week. Still wear the strap. I can start light cardio without any bouncing lol
Actually did some cardio today
I did 45 minutes of cardio today on a recumbent bicycle and elliptical (no arms). Feeling pretty good still sore. I can't wait for them to drop and fluff! I still have lots of bruising.
I love them!
I'm so happy I finally did this for myself! Best decision ever, I love them!
Went to another PO appt today
I saw my PS again today. He told me to continue the strap and massage and to come back in 3 weeks for my 6 week appt since everything was looking good. As always he took his time and made sure he answered all my questions. I wanted to add that my incisions are already invisible I don't think anyone would even see them unless I pointed them out and I haven't even really started scar treatment. I'm really shocked since the peri areola incision really scared me. Also I have 100% feeling everywhere on my breasts and nipples. I'm slowly dropping and softening up more everyday!
I wanted to show everyone what a difference a couple of weeks can make!
I found a before picture in the same swim suit
