30 yr old mama to 4. After breastfeeding deflated 34A to 34C/D. 400cc Silicone Mod Plus+ Unders

So excited about tomorrow's operation! Can not...

So excited about tomorrow's operation! Can not wait to feel renewed. I've certainly earned them. My stats are 5"8 138 lbs 34A hoping for 34C. I'm going with Mentor Memory Gel Silicone 400cc sub-muscular. I tried o many sizers from 350-450cc felt the most comfortable with the 400cc. My doctor seems to think I will be very pleased with the outcome! Got my RX's filled. Childcare lined up. House cleaned and shopping done!! Tomorrow is the big day! Yay!!!!

24 hours Post Op update

Surgery went well. Awoke with much more pain than anticipated. But they were kind to give me pain meds before I left. Came home and started my RX's. I'm taking hydro codeine and Tylenol 10/325 but cutting the pill and taking only half. Nausea was bad because I wasn't able to eat much and taking pain pills on empty stomach is the worst. If I had to redo it. I would just take extra strength Tylenol maybe 1000mg to ease the pain without the nausea to get myself eating. THEN I would start the pain meds. Today I've found my groove with all the medications. Every 3-4 hours I take pain pill with food and stool softener. Every 6 hours I take my antibiotics with a probiotic to help balance my stomach. As needed I take Arnica an over the counter homeopathic med that is for bruising swelling and soreness. A friend recommended it to me and boy does it work wonders! Today I'm just resting as much as I can. Crazy sore and feel like I've been shot in the chest. Icing every 2 hrs for 20 min. Helps so much! My left side is more swollen and tender than my right. So thankful my inlaws have my kids. There is NO WAY I could recover with the children home. Here's day one.

11 Days Post Op - Feeling Pretty good.

11 Days post Op and I'm feeling good! Nights around 8pm my incisions get really sore and achey. But Ill take Tylenol or half a pain pill. I prefer to not take a pain pill if I can do without but some nights the pain is pretty bad.

I have had a few moments of wondering if I should have gone bigger! I had 400cc Mentor memory gel silicone under the muscle. They haven't dropped yet. Still high and right but MUCH softer than a week ago. Is is just my constant view of myself in sports bras that is obscuring my view? Will I be much happier once I'm wearing normal bras? I just feel like they're a little smaller than I expected they would be. I guess I expected it to be super obvious. I mean I started off with hardly anything so this is certainly 2 sizes bigger than I started! Has anyone else suffered from this "boobie greed"? I def want to be happy with them. My husband thinks I'm crazy! Maybe I'm just having a moment? I def do not want to have surgery again for a VERY long time! Haha

2 week post op feeling amazing!

My only annoyance is the sensitivity of my breasts right now. It's like my nerve endings are freaking out. But honestly. It worth every bit of it. I can wear a swimsuit and feel so confident. Reay pleased with my surgery. I can't believe how back to norm I feel already. I am trying my very best to do little lifting but I'm not gonna lie it's not that easy. I drive, cook, shop, lite cleaning etc and feel perfectly fine the next day. Incision aches from time to time but nothing that Tylenol can't fix. They seem to be settling nicely so no complaints. ;) I've had my moments of wondering IF I should have gone bigger. But honestly I think I made a good choice for me. I was worried bc no one seemed to noticed. But that's exactly what I wanted. No one to notice. So instead I chopped 10 inches off my hair. And let me tell you man I feel REFRESHED!! #hellospring

Scars 16 days post op.

So my scars are looking pretty good. But when I touch them they feel a little thick. I'm wondering if this is normal. Also still little squishiness around the bottom. Still maybe some of the antibiotic fluid? But this far out I thought it may be gone by now.

Pic update

Just adding a few pics

Before and After Wow!

Today is day 22 post op. I decided to try on a bra I wore the day of surgery. This VS bra is a 34B which I couldn't even fill out. Look at the cupping! I have NO idea why I wore the wrong size. I was def an A cup. Look at me now! I think its safe to say I'm a C cup now!

Because you asked.

Hair update. I chopped 9 almost 10 inches off my locks 2 weeks Post op. Felt so good! The ends needed them bad plus I sorta love the whole cycle of cutting and growing. Feels refreshing. If people haven't noticed my breasts they certainly have noticed my hair. ???????? ;)

4 weeks post op

Today is 4 weeks to the day. Just had my follow up with my PS. Everything going perfect! She gave me silicone strips to start on my scars for the next 3 months and showed me the massage I'm to do to keep the pockets soft. Thankfully the sensitivity isn't as intense as it was a week ago.

Silicone strips for scars

5 weeks post op update

My girls are softening beautifully. Loving that they're feeling more and more like my own. I've certainly began to feel proportionate for the first time in a Looong time. Def not feeling like I just nursed 4 kids and had the life sucked outta me. Feeling revived! ????

6 Weeks Post Op update

I've finally made it! And the time FLEW by! I'm officially at the "I can do push-ups, weight training, handstands and lift whatever the heck I want" stage. Yay! :)) Feeling so great and loving going with out a bra.

8 weeks post op 34D !!!

Can't believe it's already been 8 weeks. Things have softened up even more. They bounce now. Haha! No one can tell I've had them down. They look so natural and fit my body perfectly. I have those "moments" occasionally of wondering what that extra 25cc's would look like. But they come and go so quick it really doesn't effect me. I'm so happy overall!! I've officially been sized at VS this week. Tried on tons of bras. I'm a 34D!! 32DD fits be too and some bras I found the more snug the better. I'm posting some pics of venture to VS. :)

10 weeks post op.

Feeling AH-mazzzing!!! Honestly feel like a part of me now.

Can you purchase those silicone scar strips or are they only from the doctor? My scars are looking bad because of the gaping open and re stitching...
