Research, Research, Research! Starting at 34a...want 34c....silicone 304cc or 339cc? Recovery different with the size difference?
Nervous about everything as we are into hourly countdown now!
Any postop advice?
Great to find this site and read others experiences and know I'm not alone in these thoughts and worries!

Off pain meds, feeling pretty good.

I am anxious for them to drop...hope to get ok to massage on Wed at post op appt!!

Day 6

Not much change with front on, but a side view actually shows a little less pronounced bump at the top!

10 Days post op pics

Looking and feeling a little better...

A little late...but 1 month post op pics and update...

I am almost 5 weeks post op but took these photos at 1 month. The have dropped quite a bit and are getting soft. I forget they are there sometimes and although the feeling of my milk coming in (only thing I could compare to) was annoying it is finally going away!! I was worried I would be stuck with that forever!

I'm doing great. Thank you for asking. Back to normal..sometimes forget I had syrgery! Except I dodon't have to wear a 2x padded bra! I'm coming in at around 34c, but bought a 36c for a little added room so I don't rub the incision site too much. Scars fading...using vit e oil daily. Husband took my 1 month photos today...I'll try and get those up tomorrow! Glad to see your recovery is going well!

You and I have similar stats - 5'4, 140, 34a, hope to be 34c, 325cc unders and I got mine on the 20th. =) So far I'm feeling pretty good, I just get sore at the end of the day. How are you doing? Are you happy with the size you chose so far?

So far I like them...they are a tad big...but I think I'm just adjusting. But I think going with a smaller size may have been too small! They are still super high....that's the hardest part for me because I feel great...waiting for the desired look. I am on my first outing since surgery...off pain medication and all is good!

I thought mine felt tiny at first (I think because they were numb and I was wrapped up so tight), but am coming around to the size. If just hope I don't lose too much from swelling and feel like they're small again. How did you do with your first outing?! I got out yesterday and today and was sooo tired afterwards! I haven't taken any pain medication since Fri, I'm glad you are feeling so well! I feel so bad for the girls that don't do well. =/

Ya did fine. But I've had three c sections and a grapefriut size tumor removed from my abdomen with my ovary. I will say the BA is worse on recovery than my c sections but wayyyy easier than an abdominal mass removal! I am hopeful that recovery continues to go well and I finally get the desired results! Glad you're doing well also...I too feel for those who struggle with longer recovery!

How ironic! I had my colon removed and a bunch of other abdominal surgeries and knee that this one would be a piece of cake compared to those. I was like, "I get to go home the day of?! Sweet!" Haha!

That's only a difference of like a tablespoon...no difference in recovery....
