Butt Implants Yesterday with Dr.widder! - Vienna, VA

Hey ladies. I had my butt implant surgery...

Hey ladies. I had my butt implant surgery yesterday with dr.widder in vienna, va. I live in Az so I flew out here alone. Hired jojo the nurse to stay with me the 1st 24 hrs and she was awesome. Im 19 years old, 5"2, roughly 112 lbs. He put in 565 cc oval implants subfascialy placed. THE RECOVERY IS NO JOKE LADIES! because im so young I couldn't have an epidural so I went under general anasthesia.

When I woke up I was in so much pain and they had to pump 900ccs of saline fluid in me because I was dehydrating. When I was good to go, jojo drove me to my hotel and I sat in the passangers seat which was hell! Id recommend laying down in the back seat if you can. Pain pills make me sick so iv just been taking Tylenol which is ok. The pain is bad but not unbarable. My ass looks big and great. Does anyone know when it softens up? When is ok to drive? Feedback welcome :)


P.s. I wish I could post photos but realself doesn't let me upload via my cell phone :"(

Ok. Today is day 3 post-op. Im still in a lot of pain. Basically on bed rest. Laying down all the time is giving my body some aches which sucks. Dr.widder said I would be ok to fly back to Az one week post-op but after talking to one of his other patients and taking my pain into consideration...I think im going to wait a little longer. I just can't imagine sitting on a plane for hours! The size is looking good but im not sure how much is swelling vs. Reality. Ill post a 5 day update soon!

DAY 5:
Ok so I think after you get over the 3 day hump things start looking up. I can get in/out of bed much easier. Iv been taking brief walks and using the toilet isn't a nighmare anymore {squatting the first few days isnt fun} . Looking at my drains, the blood looks a lot more translucent so that's a good sign. Laying on my stomach all the time is getting SO tiring. I mean I can only facebook and watch so many episodes of law & order before losing my mind! The swelling looks like its mostly gone away and so far im delighted with the size/shape although its hard to tell with the compression wrap still on. No pain no gain ladies!
Your results look great. The size will get a little smaller after a week. Trust me there is still swelling there but you should be happy with the results. Any idea on when you plan on flying back?

DAY 7:
Okay Iv finally hit the one week mark! I had my drains removed this morning and its left me VERY SORE. {Although im so glad to have those things out}. I will be leaving Washington tomorrow and flying back to Arizona. Im reallly not looking forward to the trip back. I know its going to be painful and ill definitely be feeling it the next day :( but...I gotta get home. Im still walking funny, lol duck like. Who ever said patients is a virtue has obviously never had plastic surgery!!! Looking forward to getting to the 2 week mark. As for results, everything is looking good so far. Still swollen a bit.

DAY 9

Okay I took a 12 hr flight home {delays and layovers}. To be honest, it was EXCRUCIATING! I was practically drinking extra strength Tylenol. I made it home and suprisingly I wasn't sore next day...weird but hey, im not complaining!! I totally would recommend staying in town for two weeks if you can. But, if you NEED to go home, its possible but painful. There's literally no comfortable position on a plane even if u have pillows , blankets etc. Veryy hard. But, the worst part is over. Now time to ben home and heal ?

JUST OVER 2 WEEKS!!

O.M.G. the difference is like night and day. I can drive short distances, walk mostly normal, no Tylenol, they're getting softer, they feel more a part of me every day. I even had very CAREFUL sex with my boyfriend. Im not experiencingG anymore pain and I have full movement of my legs (squat, bend, etc). My insicion wound looks incredible. Although im 19 years old so im sure my body is healing at an advanced rate.
As for the appearance of the implants. ..beautiful. asymetrical, lifted, curvy. Although I did get used to the "swollen size" so I thought I wanted them bigger but everyone.insists they're perfect. Im happy!

All the swelling has gone down. Not happy. The change id minimal. Not worth it.
Hi @miladoll would you recommend getting bigger than 565 since you were not happy with your end result after swelling?

I was thinking about using this doctor but I wanted a major change in size and seeing you are not happy with the size is very disapointing. As of now is there any changes in the size or how you feel about them?
