10mth post-op *new pics*

I want to start off thank everyone who has shared...

I want to start off thank everyone who has shared their stories on Realself. I have been wanting to do this since I turned 18 but always felt gulity about spending money on myself and of course going under. So here I am finally really researching over ten years later (lol). I am really insecure of my chest size when I take my bra off because I fell like theirs nothing there. Especially the feeling when you lay down with your bra still on and there is nothing in the cup or the fact that im laying flat and I feel like I have little speed bumps on my chest. Needless to say Im so tired of my clothes not fitting right I have always had to buy l or xl shirts because I am tall and have somewhat of a long torso but alot of them are big in the chest area because I dont fill the shirts out. I have always felt like my chest dont match up to the rest of my body. I went for my consultation Feb. 6 and talked to the Dr. about everything I wanted and he answered all my questions. My goal is to be a 'C' cup I am currently an 36A 5'8 165lbs. The Dr. thinks I should go with 400cc-425cc to be where I want? I personally thought after looking thru all kinds of pics I wanted 350-375cc... So I leave feeling some what of confused but I did remember seeing on here something about going under the muscle you lose 50cc?? Not sure how true that is? Im starting to get nervous I set up the big day FEB.28th I cant wait!!! Im getting super excited about finally getting to have BOOBS!!!

Good luck!!!! This is a very special and exciting time in your life and you have to trust in your PS. He will know the best thing for you and what cc will best compliment your frame. And we are all here for support!!

so exciting indeed! i started a wish list on amazon for all the things ill need like nice satiny pajamas, bendy straws, a back scratcher that reaches far and a bed pillow with arms. you can never over prepare too much! and camis with a built in shelf bra are a great idea!

Happy Boobie Day to Me! Well Ive been home since noon and feeling really tired and exhausted. Ive slept on and off since then. Today was great! I arrived at he hospital at 7a sat until 730a then they took me back to pre-op and hit me with a pregnancy test smh Im not prego lol but I know its just standard precautions. Got changed into gown and ted hose the nurse started my iv. Guess there was a miscommunicaton about time bc Dr. thought it was 8a but I didnt get started until almost 9a. Talked with the Dr. about size and my goals again and cant wait I knew it was getting closer he marked me up and took a couple pictures for his album befor I knew it they were taking me back. Told my mom the first question to ask Dr. is how many cc we ended up going with lol (like I was going to forget lol) Well final number 480cc Saline/under was a little shocked didnt realize he was filling that much more but Im happy with what I have or can see for the most part. I know when we talked I expressed my feelings and what I wanted plus the nurses in surgery were Great they all were very nice and were telling me they were Doc second eyes lol I cant see much Im wrapped up until my post-op appt. Wednesday March 6th so im really excited to get this off already I want to see my girls! I also recieved a pain pump that last 2-3days I havent heard anyone else talking about this but it was an extra $200.00 I will say well worth it. I havent been in any pain. I just feel pressure on my chest for the most part. When I laydown I feel great no pressure and ice of course is my new best friend lol. My mom daughter and bf have been so helpful waiting on me and making sure Im comfortable feel blessed to have such a great inner circle. Well im going to go for now ill update tomorrow starting to get sleepy again.
Soooo happy everything went well!!!!!! Sleep well girl and keep us updated xoxo

post op day 2&3 I was in a lil pain it hurt to get up and down we had plans to see a comedy show yesterday (Friday) Riding in the car was challenging every bump I surely felt in my breast and we walked 2 blocks to the theater I was hurting bc I was cold and I guess I kept flexing my pecs or something not a good feeling. After the show we came home and I was ready for bed exhausted.

Post op 1 week went to the Dr for my first checkup yesterday to get wrap off, he said everything looks good they showed me excercises to do with my new girls and only wear cami's. Not so sure about that its definitly going to be akward not wearing a bra but im following Drs order lol. they are still a lil tender and riding high. So I go back in a week. I can't wait until they drop and I'm fully recovered I'm still getting tired easily and having to take the muscle relaxers for muscle spasms . Other than that its not bad at all. Wish everyone Happy healing! Trying to upload new pic but its not letting me :-(
sooooo happy you are doing good!!! i can not wait to see the new pics im sure they look awesome. how are you doing otherwise feeling good? still staying out and about? keeping busy but not overdoing it def helps : )

Day10 post op Well I went back to work this...

Day10 post op
Well I went back to work this weekend I will say that was a lil challenging. It feels so different picking things up. And I can tell its going to take some time before I get my full strength back. I feel once I'm using my pecs my chest area has a numbness sensation that seems to linger around it. Is that normal?Or has anyone else experienced this? I also feel really emotional not sure why? Maybe bc I'm getting ready to start my monthly. Grrr... Anyways I've been trying to take it easy and not do so much between working and the homefront trying to give my pecs a lil break and hope I'm not over doing it. Its hard I will say that lol I'm so used to being on the go so I've been trying... hope everyone is doing great I haven't had the chance to get on here but I'm going to try and add some more pics later. Be sure to tell me what you ladies think? I still feel their a lil high? Not sure if its just me lol.
The girls are looking great!! Hows sleeping coming along? Hopefully being back at work will help! Happy healing
Reply
Thanks! Sleeping isn't that bad definitly reccommend extra pillows for comfort. I love that I'm back to work its been helping use my arms and get my strength back. I can't wait until I can get back in the gym ! I hope everything goes w ell for you! Good luck

18days postop. sorry ladies but I haven't posted...

18days postop.
sorry ladies but I haven't posted anything been really crazy at myhouse my mom ended up having to have a knee replacement so with that being said she has custody of my niece and nephew so I've taken them into my house definitely not use to having 3 kids especially a 3 year old so I'm trying to take it easy and not over do anything. When I start to notice any type of tightness or different feelings I try to sit down and relax. Going back to work has been challenging considering I'm a massage therapist I use my pecs more than I thought. I can tell its going to take some time to get my full strength back especially doing deep tissue massage. Hopfully my clients bear with me. I haven't told anyone because I think its unprofessional and its really no ones business. Any how when I went for my 2 week check up I realized I was doing the excercises wrong. My ps said they still look good anyways so glad I didn't do any damage within that week lol. Other than drama on the home front things are going well. Still sleeping propped bc the girls are still riding high. I can't wait until they drop and fluff. I'm so ready to go shopping for new bras :) I've noticed in the mornings the girls feel tight or like a fullness feeling but goes away when I get moving. I go back to Dr. Wednesday so ill see what he says about everything. Ill try and post more pics and update then. Hope everyone is doing well. Happy healing!
Hey hun... hope everything is coming along well!!

Sorry ladies that I haven't updated but I've been really busy lately. Things have been going very well no pain for the past two weeks. Dr. said things were looking good. I still notice in the mornings when I first raise out of bed girls are a lil stiff I'm guessing that's "morning boob" that I've heard everyone talking about lol. My right has dropped but my left is still riding a lil high. I've still been trying to stretch my arms everyday because I can tell when I'm working how my muscles are tight. While at the same time trying to keep telling myself take it easy lol. My daughter is on spring break this week so when she goes back to school next week I'm finally going to go get fitted for a bra I'm so excited!
Holy crap I can't believe it's been this long since your BA! How are you doing? How are things? You look awesome btw I'm so happy for you : )

Forgot to tell you ladies about getting fitted at VS I'm a 36DD :)definitely happy but I will say wish I went a lil bigger. The boob greed is settling lol I think it's because I'm always looking at them thinking they look small lol. Happy Healing to all and hope everyone is doing great. Feel free to ask any questions :)
