Since I lost almost 50lb had 3 kids including a set of twins, I decided to treat my girls to an update. Couldn't afford to do it close to home, way too much money. I did a lot of research, checked credentials and red every review I could find. So far, I think it's gonna turn out really nice. I'm only 11 days post op. I've been taking arnica and bromelin, as they recommend. I think it helps a lot .

From my first contact with office, everyone very polite and professional. I spoke with surgeon for my virtual consult and again later when I had more questions. I work in the medical field and I can tell you, a surgeon is not going to speak directly to a person that is not a patient. My husband and I were picked up From the airport, taken directly to the office. Again, everyone very nice, we had to wait awhile for him to finish with his first patient, but we were really tired anyway. The nurses did a great job with pre op, the doctor came in marked me up, after introductions, he is a super charming fellow! Turns out that my right breast was a whole cup bigger than my right. He said it should take a couple hours, ended up taking 4-5 hours, he took his time, and gave me what I asked for. He ended up doing a reduction, lift and augmentation on right, and a lift with augmentation on left. 310cc silicone extra round, keyhole incision. Stayed overnight in his facility, went to our conveniently located hotel, stayed two nights, went back for follow up. He removed my drains, changed my tape and off we went to catch our flight. You might want to have an appt set up

With your regular doctor, if you don't handle pain super well. They can't give you narcotics in pill form, only given while in the office. I think if I could of taken more time off, I could of made it. Wearing compression bra for 1 month, will be taping for as long as a year, depending on my scars.

16 days post op just changed the tape

Since I had the most work done on my right it looked pretty roughed up. Amazing the difference a week can make. Faithfully taking arnica and bromelin

Still in compression hell

Wearing compression bra 24/7 changing tape weekly. Will wear tape for almost a year so as to have no visible scars

17 days post op

Healing beautifully!! It's amazing the differences you can see in one week.

17 days post op

So far so good, doing weekly tape changes, no more discharge from right nipple. Doing daily massages

Better pic

As you can see I'm all taped up

A little better lighting

3 weeks post op bruising almost gone thanks to arnica and bromelain

21 days post op! Rode my motorcycle today

Last week of having to wear the torture device. Can't wAit to wear a regular bra. So hard to hide that damn strap! Off the Percocet usually take some tramadol and using arnica and bromelin , bruises almost gone, will update picture when I change tape on Wednesday.

26 days post op-in between tape changes

So I finally threw away my torture device(surgical bra) I was getting skin irritation. I was in the shower my husbands last tape job was not holding up so I took it off. This is how I am looking 26 days post op!! I still have some adhesive visible on my boobies.

No more pain meds needed!

I'm completely off all pain meds, still taking the arnica but I ran out of bromelin. Still tender in certain spots in the right but tolerable. Still doing my 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes in the evening of implant displacement massage. Am I always going to be in a constant state of nip forever??

Went back to Zumba class

So after a fun weekend with my husband I roughed up my right breast. A little pain in the armpit area. Then a day later, Zumba . Again with the right armpit pain. I tried to baby the right side. It had all the extra work with the reduction and lift with ba. The left is my perfect one. So I think I managed to make my right breast drop a little. Left holding in same position. I'm now 29 days post op

Back to having sex and Zumba

When we were getting down in the hotel room I know I put a lot of pressure on the right breast. Hurts in the axillary area. Then I noticed that I lost some height on the right.

41 days PO starting to spit stitches

41 days PO feeling great. Still taping as u can see. I've just noticed that I am starting to spit several stitches. I knew this might be a problem for me since it's happened in the past. I'm also a little disappointed cause I had a lift and a reduction plus augmentation on the right and it figures that would be the one to drop first. I know it's too soon to tell. But I was lopsided before it just worries me that they are now not asymmetrical again. They were so perfect!

50 days post op

Feeling fine, back to Zumba 4 days a week, starting to spit a few stitches. Warm weather is making me super itchy!!

2 1/2 months post op.

Doing well, had another stitch spit. Getting ready for a night out.

2 days shy of 3 months PO

Working on scars, ps wanted me to wear brown 3m paper tape for a year. Started having a reaction to the tape due to warm weather. Trying scar sheets at night. Since I had so much work on the right side my scar looks pretty big but it's wayyyy better than it was. Still think my left is a wee bit higher than my right.

Didn't upload updated photos

Ok I got my ps to send my preop photos

The pictures I took originally to send to my ps, I deleted them. I now realize how important it is to show the before and afters. So here they are, scary!!
