Im very nervous after years of contemplating rhinoplasty after breaking it in competitive cheerleading and many consultations I have booked my surgery for April 18th, with Dr. Lista and Dr. Ahmad in Toronto. I am also having my breasts done at the same time as I am pursuing a career in fitness/bikini competing and modelling and after years in the weight room my D's are now A's. Im hoping for a slight correction of my profile view of my nose nothing dramatic and a small addition to my chest. Hoping to keep a smaller athletic looking chest.
Filled out all my post-operative forms today,...
Just thought I would update as it's been about a...
My boyfriend will be driving me and taking care of me POST OP and he's been so great I think he's getting excited too cause my boobies might be almost healed for his bday which is May 7th, he might be able to give them a light squeeze lol. He's been googling information on how to be the best help its really sweet.
I have been going crazy cleaning my room, I threw out and gave away literally a dozen boxes full of stuff, emptied my room washed the walls and eveything i just want the cleanest, de-cluttered space possible and it feels great getting rid of stuff!
I've been training 2 or 3x a day and cleaning pretty much and then bartending at night, no full-time job right now as im off for the school year, hopefully ill be able to serve/bartend again in 2-3 weeks I know the trays and bottles are heavy so i'll update you guys so anyone in the industry knows how I felt. I plan on bartending at the nightclub 13 days POST-OP, and not returning to serving at a fine dining restaraunt till almost 4 weeks because I find the plates and trays of drinks to be harder on the area than just the pop gun and bottles. Ill let you all know though!
Bought my surgery pajamas and house coat and surgical soap for pre-op shower. Bloodwork and physical monday or tuesday.
OH by the way FRONT CLOSURE BRAS!!! UnderArmour...
OMG lol another thing i was wondering if anyone...
Well Its been like 10 days since ive written I've...
Alot of ladies on here have the same concerns...
By the way SUPPLEMENTS/VITAMINS: I did everything...
I did everything up until yesterday, I consulted my naturopath on pre and post surgery vitamins and herbs and took her advice, I feel the NO VITAMINS for 2 weeks is a bit of bull, but BE VERY careful and know whats in them certain vitamins have to be stopped, GARLIC, OILS,GINGKO etc.
I stopped ginger, garlic, gingko, and oral sea buckthorm 2 weeks ago now.
2 weeks out yesterday I have stopped:
GLA, CLA, OMEGA, FLAX, and BORAGE oils.
I will continue until 1 day prior to surgery with:
B complex, Biotin, Vita D, C, Multi (check it for blood thinning herbs), Colon health complex, Detox/Liver health complex, Chlorella, Spirulina, Probiotic, and Digestive Enzyme.
Hydrolized Whey Isolate, Liquid L-carnitine
(I dont believe in BCAA'S, pre workouts or creatine and shit) Your diet i its proper can supplement your body with everything it needs don't waste your money on vitamins and supplements and eat a shitty diet!
Some of my other favourite Health/Beauty Natural Products are:
VEGA energy powder, Cocunut Oil, Avacado Oil, Chia seeds, Hemp hearts, Nut Butters, Stevia, Seabuckthorn oil applied topically with moisturizer.
What I will begin immidiately post-op:
(provided in a personalized kit from my Naturopath)
Homeopathic tablets of: ARNICA, TRAUMEEL, and arnica gel
Oh my feels like it was 6 weeks away jst yesterday...
OMG I cant not believe it's only 7 days away, time...
I am more nervous for the recovery of my nose than breats as I HATE breathing through my mouth it gives me shrotness of breath and relly bad anxiety attacks. But I am more nervous for the outcome of my breasts.
Anyways I've been gyming like nuts getting in my last few chest/arms/back and shouldies workouts. I LOVE shoulders and arms my favourite days so I will miss those. Been weight training and jumping around like crazy, trying to do things I won't be able to do for a while.
I have been juicing and have been VEGETARIAN for the last 5 days and will be for atleast a month if not permanantly now, I only ate organic chicken and turkey but I really dislike the taste of meat and always had to disguise it plus im a huge animal right advocate so I though WTF might as well just go vegetarian for a while see how I respond, plus a break from lifting means I wont need as much protien in my diet.
So right now and through my surgery my diet consists of organic vegetables, organic fruits, both juiced and whole, 0% greek yogurt, nuts/nut butters, caesin and whey protein, whole brown rice cakes, rice thins and healthy fats like cocunut oil/avacado oil/hemp hearts/chia seeds.
It's been 5 days and I feel amazing my abs are getting even more defined, I love doing shots of the juice through out the day makes me feel so energized I'll just stop and do a shot of celery juice. SO many nutrients so fast!
I cant believe it's only 5 and half days away. I'm...
Going to get my last spray tan and eye brows tinted on wednesday mornig before surgery thursday, I cant believe I have to wash my HAIR with surgucal soap and not condition OMG. I will NOT be looking hot lol
Hey I cant believe its 2 days away, not even. I...
I have had a rough few days I wont hide it, my body inside is clearly stressed although i dont feel stressed, my period is 3 weeks late, I broke out like nuts and I have awful sugar cravings and just want to eat eat eat. All these are unusual for me. So I've felt a bit weird and frustrated with the break out. I have barely slept the last 3 nights up about every hour not sure why just brain buzz I guess, I've gotten in good workouts at the gym atleast. When I got up this morning I was walking around organizing last minute things like weeping, I couldnt stop crying it was weird I had all these thought like wtf am I doing to myself. It's hard to explain. Then I calmed down I think it's all just very real now that im packiong up the car. I'll be staying at my boyfriends dads house tonight and the night after surgery as it is only 20 minutes from the surgery clinic and my house is an hour. So i'm all packed up food and clothes and all the things I need. Tomorrow I'm going to go to the gym and try to keep my mind occupied and then shower with my surgical soap and go to bed early. I'll update as soon as I'm on the other side of this. Wish me luck!
Hey ladies sorry for the few days delay I had my...
Went in at 7 am it went well I'm alive, it's officially to type this but I will make a long update after some more pain meds.
Surgery day was long but I'm so happy I chose the doctors and clinic I did the staff were so unbelievably amazing and attentive. I went in at 7 was brought to my private room chnged into robes and slippers and cap. Talked to my rn for a while she gave me a heating blanket. Then the anastheiaioligist came in and told me what he was going to do and that he would be there the entire time. Then u saw both doctors and then into the operating table. I didn't even feel te IV and I hate needles wasnt even a prick and then I was in recovery. I had no pain at all when I woke up, my cheat was tight and the worst part was actually that my tail bone was a but bruised and my elbows were stiff. The doctors both came by after and so did the anastheiaioligist. My surgeries took about 5 hours, and I was supposed to leave recovery after 2 hours I was doing so well but when I got up to pee I had such such bad nausea I ended up in recovery on oxygen for another two hours. Long day was 7 when I got out. Went home not much pain crappy sleep back to have the fri age tubes out in the morning that felt so awful really gross and burning . The pain now is that my back is siezing up from sitting allday in recliner, u get pecs every six hours and the hour before the fifth hour is extremely uncomfortable throbbing everywhere. Now today it's a good things my nerves re coming bCk in my cheat but the pain I really bad little stabbing burning pains all over my breasts hurts so bad. I have no bruising in my face never got any actually only a Tad of swelling in cheeks, boobies are high and tight and back hurts I can move my arms around though slowly, wash and rub myself put on cream etc. I'm sticking to liquids like I said sugar free jello, protein shakes, yogurt smoothie Etc. I can't taste a damn thing at all yet.
So nose- never bruised, tiny bit of swelling, very stuffed up, obviously can't breathe have splints inside an outside still. Only a dull ache between pecs.
Breasts- tightness subsiding stiffness subsiding, nerve endings coming back is excruciating, incisions don't hurt in armpit a but uncomfortable when I wah them.
Still on bed rest, sleeping patterns suck, I try o walk around and stretch after my perca kick in. I walk around squat go I the washroom fine, get myself food and vitamins.
Vitamin wise I'm taking arnica, magnesium citrate, cellfood, zinc, b,d, and a ton of stuff for my colon.
It technically post op day 3 and I've barely pooped so bloated and backed up feels awful. Hopefully I can soon. I think I've done so well because I was so healthy but also my supplements. Cellfood and magnesium citrate repair muscle tissue and nerves etc. arnica pills and traumeel gel for bruising and swelling. I haven't taken many pics as you an imagine double sugery and the longer anaesthesia time makes for a groggy few days will take some tomorrow and post again. Glad I chose 300 thy look very proportionate so at an modest which I what I wanted can't tell anything about nose with cast on but doc said it went really well.
Added some quick ou a from my cell phone
UPDATE! POST-OP day 5.75 lol. Got my cast off...
Got my cast off today feels so relieving! Also had splints inside my nose and it felt so good to have them pulled out they were so big! i was like those were inside my brain!! lol felt weird but so good.
My nose looks amazing so straight an perfect and even though im stuffed up I can breathe so much better again already. SO HAPPY. Dr. Ahmad is amazing! i have small like snore strip things back on for another 5 days :)
My boobs are also doing amazing. still wearing the strap as often as I can which ends up being about 22 hours a day only off to wash it.
I also started massage today 5 minutes every hour feels sore but good to move them around. My incisions are healed up totally closed I'll post pictures of them soon. no more washing them or polysporin I actually am supposed Massage the incision site lightly and the scar tissue lump underneath it 3x a day for a minute each side.
I had never heard anyone doing this last thing and it makes a lot of sense in the same way im an athlete and use a foam roller or tennis ball to break uo muscle soreness and scra tissue they want you breaking it down along your inner armpit.
any ways i feel very relieved, much more mobile I washed my own hair today put on all my own creams made my own food and did laundry and stuff. I spent an hour doing mobility stretches just very slow long held stretches felt awesome my backs still very tight but feels better. I'm amamzingly down to one Tylenol extra strength every 6 hours thats it.
And my digestion is back on track, going to the washroom regularly again.
6 weeks! I will post some photos tomorrow!
Sorry for the lack of updates my fiance got a job offer 2 days after my surgery so we just moved him out to Alberta :( I just got home.
My breasts an FANTASTIC, perfect size perfect shape perfect healing. right arms still a little tight, left incision scar totally gone, right fading steadily.
back to the weights as of two days ago, feels weird adjusting to the girls and lost a lot of strength but ill get it back.
nose.... looks great i have to go back for a tiny revision just under local freezing no scars or anything. some of the cartilidge he out in didnt smooth out quite as nicel as it did on the right side. super super minor but he's a perfectionist and so am i. and after payong for it why not. eveything else is great i can breathe and touch it and blow it gently. feelings back in the tip almost normal, scars fading almost totally gone. still a little swollen and tender along the bridge if i really push.
I knew a few women who have had breasts done with him and they all RAVE and call him a genius lol. They all had amazingly quick recovery and unbelievably natural results. I loved that he was concerned about body measurements and proportions and will not do anything the will look too fake or large as he wants all his results to look natural. His clinic is gorgeous, my patient co-ordinator is great, they are very informative answered all my questions!
