I have considered breast implants for a long time but never wanted it more than after my last kiddo. I went back to work at 12 weeks and pretty much pumped for about 11 months exclusively and let’s just say that pumping isn’t quite the best thing for your body. My breasts have last any and all fullness.
Goals: I want my new breasts to look and feel as natural as possible and would like to be a full C or small D. I have looked at Naturelle 371cc and 394cc moderate plus profile silicone gel implants and will go with one of those two sizes.
I am being so very indecisive, and have no idea...

I have decided to go with Allergan 371cc moderate plus silicone implants under the muscle. I was really torn (still am) between the 371cc and 397cc but ultimately think I will be happier with the smaller size. My goal is not to have HUGE ta-ta’s but rather look proportional and natural. Any thoughts/ input on size? I don't have much to work with to start so really anything will be an improvement ;)
They will be doing IV sedation rather than general anesthesia (unless requested otherwise by the patient), what is your though on that? What anesthesia were you under for the surgery?
Well its’ only two weeks away now and I am truly feeling every emotion under the sun!
Well time is flying and I will be under the knife...

After a LOT of back and forth I have decided to go with 371cc FOR SURE. So thankful for all your input and stories it’s nice to at least somewhat know what to expect. It’s crazy how many different outcomes I have read about and each and every journey is so very different.
Question about recliners, I don’t have one and can’t quite justify buying one just to put in our bedroom for me to sleep in the first few days. We do have a chaise lounge that I will put in the bedroom with a lot of pillows and hopefully that will be sufficient.
What do you guys think? Is a recliner a ‘necessity’? What was sleeping like after the surgery? I can do A LOT of things but being sleep deprived is ultimate torture... what can I expect?
I am terrified of the implant not dropping and having them up to my neck… what if anything can I do to prevent that from happening?
Also, I am scheduled to get back to work after 10 days. How much time did you take off before returning to work? What was it like?
Question for the working girls: What if anything...

Silly questions; I wanted to go tanning before the surgery… do you think that would be a problem? Any of you ladies use tanning beds regularly? I go about once a week and I guess it’s something that slipped my mind so I haven’t asked my PS about it.
Surgery went great, waking up from anestheisa was...

Today I am feeling alright, still taking narcotics about every 4ish hours. Tomorrow I can take a shower and will hopefully get a better look at the girls once all the drawings and color is washed off.
Where to start. Recovery is not all that easy...

So far I am truly happy with the results BUT there is a difference in size, the left boob is bigger. I am not sure if it’s the swelling or anatomy but I do see a size difference.
Hope all you girls are doing well and loving your result!
How time flies when your having fun! Well we are...

I had my one week follow up last week on the 31st; got the steri strip removed, started massaging the breast, got rid of the strap AND got the go ahead to wear any bra I like. So what’s a girl to do other then go on a small little shopping spree? I am measuring a 32D/ DD depending on the style and need NO padding to show these girls off, picked up ten super fun bras to start my new under-garment wardrobe ;) Recovery has not been problematic for me at all (knock on wood), the first 2-3 days were a bit of a blur but other than that it really is nothing you can’t handle.
Next appointment with the doctor is at the end of this week. I will bring up the concerns I have with the left breast and hopefully everything will be alright. I mean it has only been ten days and I am sure that I am being more than a little bit anal but I did spend thousands of dollars on this surgery and I just want to make sure that everything turns out the BEST that it can.

My doctor has been phenomenal through this entire journey and I truly can't blame him for anything.
The pain this time around has been sever and I am pretty drugged up around the clock but I am hoping that things will look up soon and that all this will be worth it in the end. The bandages have not yet been removed so hopefully tomorrow I will have a better look at things and may be able to give a better update.
Hope everyone is doing well and even with this minor complication I would not change a thing.
