My BA is scheduled for 4 weeks from today. I am 42, 5'3, approximately 120 lbs. I will be getting saline, under muscle, anywhere from 300-350 cc's. I have always been a 34 "almost" B. I always wanted larger breasts, but never thought about it much due to what I thought would be high cost and high pain! However, a friend had hers done a few weeks ago and said it was so much simpler than I had previously thought. I made an appt with her PS and really liked her. After a couple of days of thinking about it and discussing it with my husband, I decided to go for it! I am a major "planner" and always want to be very prepared for every situation. I have become obsessed with the great info on this site and am so ready for May 15th! thanks for all the great info from everyone here!
So I have my pre-op appt tomorrow morning. I am...

Each day gets a little better! Worked a full da yesterday and took a long walk! Had some back pain last night, think it is from always sleeping on my back--Had my 1 week follow up yesterday, PS said everything looks good! Swelling decreasing daily and they look less like torpedoes :-)

Each day gets better and better! Still sleeping on my back, but someone's review had suggested a pillow under the knees...very helpful! No real pain anymore, just very sensitive nipples and I can almost feel my skin stretching! Can't wait to get out of these sports bras, but my PS says six weeks, so that is what I will do! Still have a pretty nasty bruise under my right breast, bought some arnica montana cream today from GNC...hopefully will help with the bruise and remaining swelling. Still so glad I did this! I can't imagine women who go through this procedure without Realself, it is a god-send!

Healing pretty well...went to the gym today for a short workout--treadmill/bike/some leg weights. Also go fitted at VS today, looks like I am a 34D! Got the ok from my PS to wear the genie bra....so sick of the racerback/high back sports bras! LOL Morningboob pretty much gone...still not totally comfortable sleeping, as I am doing sort of back and side. Massaging a few times a day. My only concern is my right brest has some slight rippling on the underside...will get my PS to look at it next week. Still riding a little high, but they seem to be dropping evenly and getting softer every day!
It has been 2 months since my BA, and I am so...
