So i have noticed that theres not alot of information about scar management..
At my last visit to my PS i was given a brochure for scar management its called NewGel they are silicone strips that are applied to your incision and are ment to help to reduce,flatten and smooth scars .. The web sit is www.newmedical.com

I will be ordering myself some for sure..

I DID IT :) i finally have my new boobies :)
so i went in for surgery at 1pm and woke up in recovery at about 6pm i was in a little pain and asked for some pain meds. I was ok within about 20 mins for me the pain was around a 4 out of 10 i didnt have the heavy presure that most woman experience for me it was more of a burning sensation like the feeling when you breast fill with milk when breast feeding, my chest muscles where very tender like i had done a massive chest workout times ten. Everything has turned out amazing im very happy with my results . Im still not aloud to have a shower till tomorrow so ill post a photo asap. I have to wear my compression bra 24/7 so im going to follow my doctors orders for best results :)

so i am now a week post opp and feeling alot better. the first few days were really rough for me not being able to do anything for myself. i have an appointment tomorrow with my PS to have my dressings changed..

two weeks and two days post opp.. 8.9.11

i feel pretty good so far!! still a little tender. my breast are dropping nicely, think most of my swelling has gone down they are pretty soft now not as hard. i do still have some numbness which is to be expected im starting to get an electric shock like feeling in my left breast which indicates that nerve activity is returning, but it feels soo gross lol..
im still wearing my compression bra which i think i have to wear for another two or more weeks while my breast are healing. i have an appointment with my PS next week 12.9.11 so ill update a photo then..

Four weeks post op feeling great! back to almost...

four weeks post op feeling great!
back to almost all my normal activities. still not aloud to go back to weight training for another few weeks but im not to stressed about that ATM. as i have my amazing new boobies keeping me occupied lol.

don't really have any pain or tenderness any more, still a little numb but its to be expected.
breast have settled nicely and feel like a part of me. over all i think i had a pretty good experience and im very happy i went through with it.
worth the two years wait that's for sure. im in Sydney Australia and we have just come into spring so can wait to go clothes shopping to buy lots of nice clothes that i can wear with out a bra hehe.. ill keep everyone posted anyway as i go ..

Hi Mandy77 - I'm also a mum that has 'deflated' post baby (breastfeeding). Considering having surgery in Sydney but everywhere I look the prices are closer to $11k. Are you allowed to say who your doctor was? Thanks for your help.

They look great! An sooo natural looking!!

I have 400cc, silicone, under muscle. It took mine a few weeks before they started to relax. It is very normal, as your muscle is being stretched over the implant.

Hi Mandy, your goodies look really great! I'm glad everything went well for you! I had my surgery done last friday dec 2nd, saline around 300cc, under muscle, inframammary 1.2 inch incision. I like the results and they feel great, but I'm concerned with the high/swollen pec muscle on top of the breasts. May I ask if you had similar issue? And if so, how long after did the top pec muscle relax and come/calm down? Thank you and take care girly!

hey there, thank you and congrats to your new twins :) um no i didn't have that problem, it may take time for your muscle to loosen. once your aloud to massage them they will soften and drop and feel more natural:)it took me about a month for the swelling to go down completely.. best of luck

If she truly wants them she would contact some doctors and research on sites like this for herself. It is a decision that only she can make for herself. Perry4538 said it perfectly. However, size is one of the things to consider, but alot goes into picking the right size. Photos can only show what someone would hope to achieve. All women are different and the same size and style of implant will look different on each woman. The best thing to do is have your wife contact a few plastic surgeons and go to a few consultations. Have your wife print off photos of breasts that she likes and also tell her to be very verbally expressive on what she desires in an outcome. The reason for that is, for instants, a C or D cup can look very different in the eyes of each person. Also know that the actual implants are measures in cc size rather than actual cup size. So many women (myself included) get wrapped up in what size to get. A surgeon will take measurements of her body and based upon her desired outcome he/she will decide the size and style of implant to use. It is a very interesting process. For me, I found a PS I was 100% sure of and trusted. In the end, Iam 110% happy. As for your position, stand by her and help her in the process. That is what my husband did and I was very grateful. Best of luck!

Hi there, ok first of all i'm a guy and i am asking questions pretty much because my wife wants to get implants but she says she wants to do them for me, she thinks i am not happy with how she looks, although i am pretty happy with how her breasts look, but she is a B size but i think its the way they look that she's not happy with. So that's a little background, so my questions is, what would be the first thing we should consider? how big? is this something that i should just let my wife decide? should i even give my opinion or just let her go with what she feels comfortable with? She asks what looks better and i don't really have anything to compare to. I've been looking at some of the pics on this forum but i am kind of embarrassed of tell my wife i've been looking around. Anyway, maybe one of you can give me some advice. Thanks!

No offense, but if she is only getting them for your it is the WRONG reason and shame on you for even pushing the issue.

Well she cant really be doing it only for me because im happy with how she is. And i never brought up the topic of breast implants. I do however think that she is not happy with how her breasts look and thinks that i am not happy either. Not that it matters. But if she really wants them done i can only be supportive and be part of what she wants. So how is this shame on me? I dont understand.
  • Reply
You sound like you are just being a supportive and concerned husband. Just assure your wife you love the way she looks, but will support her in her decisions.

hey jeta,
my partner was the same he was happy with what i had before and didnt think i needed them. i did it for mysel, and soo glad that i chose to do it :).. like perry4538 said just support her with any decision she makes.

they look amazing! I am a similar cup size to what you were (c cup), but can't fill it. when I tried on sizes (325 cc) and they put me in the white t-shirt I felt like they looked WAY too big, but after seeing your pictures, I am wondering if I should go bigger than 325 cc as I am 5'7" with a long torso (127 pounds). I don't want to be too small and want to fill out a bra with some va va voom if I want to show them off a bit :-) I may consider 345cc after seeing your beautiful results!
