doing great 2 weeks out

I am 39 years old and I have been dreaming about...

I am 39 years old and I have been dreaming about this day for a very VERY long time!! I have 2 beautiful daughters. I breast fed my first for over 1 year! I despise shopping for bras and I do not like wearing a bikini unless it has great padding!

I am a 36b a little droopy and very deflated! I finally decided to do something for MYSELF! I am a dedicated wife, mother, daughter, sister, and auntie. I love to do for others, but its my time now! I will turn forty in January, and this is my Birthday gift from myself!

Heehee On November 26th I will have 410cc silicone gel teardrop implants placed over my muscle, along with a cresent lift. I am not nervous at all, I am excited more then anything!! The countdown is on! 2 weeks and 1 day to go!!! :)))

I'm thinking I will get 445cc's now instead of...

I'm thinking I will get 445cc's now instead of 410cc's. I'm so worried about being dissappointed if the 410cc's are too small! If anyone has had either size and has pictures please message me! :)

My sugery is 1 week tomorrow!!!! I'm soo excited,...

My sugery is 1 week tomorrow!!!! I'm soo excited, but my nerves are beginning to kick in a little! After much researching, and advice from others on this forum, I have changed my mind about getting the anatomical implants (teardrop shaped), and decided to get the round shape instead. I also am going to talk to my ps this week about sudmuscular placement, (instead of subglandular) and the cresent lift, (which I have read only negative things about!) My ps is going to think I'm nuts,..... I am going against EVERYTHING he suggested for me!!! Oh well!!! $13000 is a lot to pay, and have less than desired results!!! If he is upset with me I can take my business somewhere else! I only met him once at my consult, the second time I went I didn't even get to talk to him! Is that normal? I'm wondering if I choose the right surgeon for me............ugh

So I had my meeting today with my PS. He spent a...

So I had my meeting today with my PS. He spent a good hour with me, and I left feeling so much better and confident about my surgery!!! ?? I'm having an augmentation, no lift!! I opted away from the anatomical implants and went with round, high profile. He still thought it was best for me to go over the muscle. This is because I am a little droopy, and over the muscle with help fill me out, without having to do a lift!! As far as size goes, I tried on 400 and 450 sizers and wanted to go with something in between, so my PS choose 435cc's. I'm a bit worried they might look too big, but I would rather them a little big than not big enough! I just hope and pray they will look okay and proportionate with my body! I can hardly wait!!!! Yay me!!!

Its the night before my surgery! My sister is...

Its the night before my surgery! My sister is picking me up at 4:45am! I have to be at the hospital, (which is a little more than an hour away), at 6:15. Ugh! I don't think I will be sleeping much tonight! Surgery is at 8am! I a little bit nervous, but mostly excited! I'm looking forward to having 6 weeks off work! 435cc silicone overs is what I finally decided on! That was the toughest decision I had to make in this entire process! I have no idea what size I will be! I'm thinking a full C. :). Thank you ALL for your kind words, support and all the great information you share on this site! I will update as soon as I can!! XO

I had my long awaited surgery this morning!...

I had my long awaited surgery this morning! Everything went perfect! I woke up shivering, and teeth chattering, but not too much pain so far! It feels like I have pulled muscles in my chest. Pain has been tolerabel. I have some bruising, but not surprising, as I bruise fairly easily. I woke up after my surgery at 10:30, and haven't slept since! I've been taking a percocet every 4 hours, I'm thinking I may take 2 at bedtime to help me sleep and rest comfortably! I am sooo happy everything went well! I know I have a bit of a road ahead, but I love what I see so far! ?? I'm looking forward to taking my bandages off to shower, on wednesday, so I can have a better look at the girls! Update soon!

Feeling well and doing great! I'm slowly weening...

Feeling well and doing great! I'm slowly weening myself of my prescription pain meds. They are quite upsetting to my tummy! I still take one before bed, to help me get some comfortable sleep! I normally sleep on my belly, so its been difficult. I know I can't sleep that way, but does anyone know if its okay to sleep on my side? I woke up that way lastnight!
My boobies look good so far, of coarse I think I should have gone a little bigger!! They are a nice size though! They are sooo hard and tight, really strange to feel them like that! Does anyone know if once they drop and fluff do they look much different? Shape and size? I'm hoping they won't look small! I LOVE that I can actually see some cleavage happening!! That's definately a new wonder for me!!! My nipples look big, and stretched. I hope they will look more normal once the swelling subsides. I feel I look the same as I did preop, (wearing padded bras) in clothes, but ....I tried on a few bathing suit tops (which I would never wear, because I didn't fill them out!) ..and boy oh boy...haha...I am almost spilling out of a couple of them!! I LOVE how they look! I have no regrets and no horror stories to tell...I am thankful and estatic I finally have my boobies!!! ??? Merry Christmas to MEEEE!!! Yay!

Well, I'm day 10 post op and I'm feeling great....

Well, I'm day 10 post op and I'm feeling great. The new girls are still sitting high, and feeling hard, but they are not sore to touch. I'm so sick of my surgical bra, I bought 2 new wireless, Wonder Bras today. They are so much more comfortable! I tried on quite a few bras, and I fit nicely into a D. I love my new boobies so far, but I think I would have liked them better if I had gone a little bigger! I 435cc's, maybe 475cc's would have filled my sides out a little more! I'm sure they will look a lot different as they drop and fluff! Maybe fuller at the side? I keep having shooting pains in my breasts, from what I have read, I think it is just a part of the healing process! I wake up in the morning very sore and stiff, but feel better as the day goes on. I'm off all meds, and have been for a few days. I find when I do too much, I definately pay for it later. I get sore and achy. I have my first post op appointment next week, I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping he will take the tape strips off my incisions! I will post some new pictures soon!

Cute bras jen! you fill them out nicely, huge difference compared to the pre-op piks. You're going to look great once they drop & fluff:)

I didnt notice anyone saying- but my nipples were bigger after BA. I have seen that on a few other girls as well. So no, I dont think that will shrink. As far as breast size, shrinking will be based on how much you are swollen. When you drop and fluff you may notice them get a little bigger too. Consider it a rollercoaster ride! Lol

Day 3 Just had a shower, blow dried my hair and put a little makeup on! :) I feel pretty good pain wise, so today I'm switching my percocet, to Tylenol 3's. The thing that is bothering me the most is the bloating in my stomach. I have not gone to the bathroom since sunday, so I think that's why I'm uncomfortable. I think I will venture out today to pick up some prune juice. Boobies look great (as great as can be expected 3 days post op!) I'm enjoying all the rest and relaxation! I am usually a very busy mommy! I will post a new pic today..

Hi. My surgery is tomorrow. I'm very nervous and excited. Hope to hear from you before I go there. How are you feeling ? Are you in a lot of pain?

Hi Christina, You will do great! Try to relax and don't stress out! I tend to be a worrier too, but I work hard at thinking positive. You will be so happy when you wake up after surgery! Any pain will be taken care of with your meds. I never once felt any terrible pain!!! REALLY!! Just a tightness, and achiness. It feels like I have pulled muscles in my chest. My implants are 435cc's, over the muscle. The incision around my nipples. When I woke up after surgery I was really cold and shivery, my throat was a little bit sore and irritated from the tube (coughing helped). The nurse kept reminding me to take deep breathes. From the recovery room, I was taken to a different room where I could see my sister. I had some soup, I was only there for half hour, and home I went! I have been resting a lot, and enjoying it!! Hehe I have some bruising, (I bruise easily), but my boobies feel numb, so I don't feel anything. I can get dressed, do stairs, brush my teeth and hair, make a sandwich ect... Don't worry! It doesn't to anything positive! You will be surprised! Good luck, and hope to hear from you later today! :)

I'm having a lot of pain. My breasts are very hard. It feels like they gonna explode. I have 330 cc silicones. How are you ? Are yours still high? I'm worried. I can't lift my arms. Still taking Vicodin and bunch of other Meds.

Hi Christinam! I see you don thave a review but that you had your BA done on the 27th. I just wanted to say congratulations on your new additions! Also, what you are experiencing is all normal. We call it "t-rex" arms when you can lift your arms after surgery. All that you described is nothing to be worried about~ Happy recovery! This is the hardest part!
