I now as of now, today, right now, not after a crap breakfast will start on a fitness health kick to prepare for my boobs. I have 37 days to drop 13lbs and to bring my fitness level up. Wish me luck
Today was THE day
Surgery went well, I was operated on under local anestic , they took a litre out of my upper lower abdomin, not very painful but horrible feeling as they inject the anestic fluid and do the lipo.
I had 156cc in right breast, 180cc in left, I was hoping for more but this is the first of two maybe three procedures.
Look at all my typos, one should not blog when one is on Valium

Day of treatment
Feeling remarkably well today after great night sleep, I have to sleep on my back, naturally a side sleeper. I used a travel pillow to help me keep there. Guess where all my bruising and swelling is? I will add a guess what this is pic
Physically feeling good, if the feeling of a herd of horses trampling over your stomach is good. Only in pain when standing up or bending. Very apprehensive about my fat and if any will stay, I am being so careful, I have not had any caffeine or alcohol for a month leading up to AFT and will try to keep at it.
Had a brief meeting with my Dr today, he is happy with progress, we will be taking fat from love handles and outer thigh for next graft in Sept 14.
Feeling great, only mild pain on stomach. Yesterday I decided to spring clean my bedroom, my goodness didn't I get a work out! I am always worried about my boobies, is stretching my arms when I hang the washing damaging my fat, is washing my windows interrupting the grafting process, will my boobies shrink if I lift heavy things and on and on it goes, OMG, it is doing my head in! I have decided that what will be will be. To give my fat the incentive to stay with me by looking after myself well.
I am obsessed with my boobies, I know they still look small but for me they are a big improvement. I just love love love them, I massage them very gently with coconut oil every day, coo and smile at them like they are my babies. Ha ha my partner watches on with slightly tinged green amusement.
Before my procedure I did a month detox, no alcohol, caffeine and limited sugar, drank fresh coconut juice, lemon water, lots of fresh veg and salad, exercised, had lymphatic massages. What more could a girl do?
Daily ritual, 5 min skin brush, very lightly over stomach and breasts, shower, no direct water on boobs as I read somewhere sometime in my obsessive search for info that hot water could melt the fat and it not graft, then I lay on my bed in the sun and massage my stomach with coconut oil using a jade roller. Bach to work on Monday so this will change. I drink lemon water first thing in the morning and one or two glasses of home made kefir. Kefir is my new health obsession, my 86 yr old aunt put me onto it.
6 weeks Feeling like all my fat has disappeared
At the six week mark and so worried that I will lose more fat. Lipo sites are fine, a few lumps on my stomach but they seem to be improving. Started back at the gym this week and loving it

Breasts excruciatingly sensitive and soreDay 6 after 3rd AFT
My 3rd AFT was much more painful than the previous 2. This time they used an impliment called 'Toledo' which is used to release the skin under my breasts and inject the fat there. Unfortunately my breasts became inflamed, hard lumps and extremely sore. I called my surgeon who suggested I come to see him, mind you its a five hour drive(one Way) which I did. He checked my breasts out with ultrasound, found pooled fluid and extracted it via a needle. He was expecting dead fat but only got blood which was from the skin release. It did release the pain somewhat. I was prescribed anti biotics and told to keep an eye on them.
2 weeks after 3rd fat transfer with frozen fat
My breasts have settled down significantly, they are softening and dropping nicely. I still have lumps and swelling. Currently wearing a 14D bra which I am thrilled with. I know this will change.

Breasts have softened nicely, still hard areas where the Dr released the skin under my Breasts which I hope will soften.
