Itty Bitty Titty Committee, returning member :]

Now I just have to get all my pre op stuff...

Now I just have to get all my pre op stuff completed and then I can set my date. I'm a little nervous about the actual surgery (who wouldn't be right?) but I'm mostly just happy to know that these implants will soon be out of me and I will not have to worry about them ever again ! :] This site made finding a dr. so easy, getting to read every ones experiences and see before and after pictures was a tremendous help.

Waiting on results...

Pre Op stuff all done ! Just waiting for the results and then I will be able to set a date for explant, yippy! I'm so relieved to have everything done and now it is a waiting game.....sure hope I can get in soon after my results are finished. I'm making lists of what food stuff to buy and what house work I want to get done right before surgery so I will be able to take care of myself. And thanks to all of you lovely women I'm feeling calm and ready to go!

Results are in !

I have my surgery set for Aug. 26 !

Hours away....

My explant surgery is tomorrow morning...because of this site I feel calm and ready. I want to thank every woman on here that has shared their story and given me support and advice.

Happy to be Me.

The surgery went well, my dr. said that I had no leakage or ruptures and that he was able to get them out intact. I had a drain in each breast for 3 days, they are necessary but, for me, they were the worst part. So I was very happy to have them taken out and I go back to the dr. on Tuesday to have the stiches out. Everything is going great and I'm so very happy to be back to myself.

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon

Consultation was great, Dr. Bruno is so calm it really put me at ease. He answered all my questions and gave me all options available to me. The staff are all so nice and friendly I felt comfortable from start to finish. I'm so happy to have my Dr. now. My procedure went perfect and I couldn't be happier with the result. I would recommend Dr. Bruno to anyone he is wonderful and the staff is so sweet and friendly. Dr. Bruno is my doctor for anything I ever need in the future.

your results are wonderful! Where did you find the zip up sports bra?
  • Reply
O, I'm so glad you asked, it is a great sports bra! It is a "Champion" brand sports bra and I got it on Amazon ! I LOVE it, it is really comfortable, there is a protective strip of material behind the zipper so it doesn't cause irritation like some other women have said their bras have caused, and it seems to be very well made...it is my favorite for sure so I have washed and worn it more than any others I have....got it on right now. When I have to wash it I'm always in a rush to get it clean and dry so I can get it back on ! I Highly recommend it ! I'm going to get another one/or two just cuz I love them so much. And they really do seem like the kind that are going to hold up to wash after wash.

I just realized I didn't thank you for the kind words ! While I am VERY happy with my results I think it is important to talk about our results and realistic expectations. The bra is a "Champion" and the number that is on the inside is, 1699, I got mine off of Amazon....I like it so well that I will be ordering one or two more...I need to get back to working out and it is for sure the best workout type bra I have ever worn (and now I can finally RUN !) . Thanks again for your kind words...they are VERY much appreciated. This site was such a great help to me in making my decision in getting the explant surgery that I want to be there for other women that are in the same scary place I was in. To anyone that reads this, please know that I will do my best to answer any questions you have and help you in anyway I can. Thanks :]

I can't thank you enough! I have spent the last two days at every sporting goods store and every store in the mall and found nothing! Just ordered 2 of the Champion ones and they will arrive before my surgery. Thanks again! Xoxo

What's the Velveteen Rabbit quote anyway? Now I'm really curious!
  • Reply
Thanks for the kind words....I do feel great ! I love hearing about you finding the top you couldn't wear before and now you can rock it !!!! The Velveteen Rabbit quote is on "Natural Goddess" page....it from the book. I just found it to be very sweet and a great way to look at getting older. Thanks again.....Glad you are happy and enjoying your new/old self.

Your very welcome. I will have to check out that page, thanks!

did you find the quote? if not, and you would like, I will post it for you...hope you are well. : }

Actually, I've trying to get the time to google it and find out what book it is from. If you could tell me the name of the book I would be interested in checking it out. I read several books a week and I'm always looking for more, like I don't have a whole bookcase filled with books waiting to be read. Thanks Sadie!

Sure no problem, glad to help. The title is "The Velveteen Rabbit", the author is Margery Williams, the illustrator is William Nicholson. I'm not sure if you would want to read the entire book or not because it is a children's book...a really good children's book. You can Google the title or Google "The Velveteen Rabbit" quotes, and read just some of the quotes from the book. Enjoy it ! :]

You look great Sadie! Isn't it great to wear little tops like that and not be hanging out. Great feeling! I even found a top today in my closet that has been there forever that I wouldn't wear before because it showed all the cleavage and I wore it last night. Love the top too!

How long did it take to sleep on your side and stomach after removal??
  • Reply
Well, the dr. said I could sleep on my side after I got my drains out and I think that was around four days. I'm still tender so I haven't slept on my tummy yet, but he said as soon as it is comfortable for me I can. I think I might still be tender because I'm not behaving myself and I'm lifting stuff I probably shouldn't.....it's difficult to remember not to lift heavy stuff. :\ Hope that helps you.

Thanks ! When is your procedure? I don't go back to Dr. Bruno for a month...I can't believe how much better I feel. Good luck with your upcoming procedure. take care of yourself.

Happy for you! Take care of yourself and rest and relax. Did you just explant or have a lift too? I just had mine taken out and I'm happy with being just me. I just ordered a new bra after buying 2 Warner A cups and not filling out the cup. The sales lady told me don't worry about that it looks great on you. I actually think the poor woman had no idea how to work my breasts as they are now. lol

Thanks soon2berealme, I just had the explant my dr. said he did not to lifts until after the explant to wait and see how everything settles. That was fine with me because I had already decided that no matter how it looked, I didn't want a lift. How I look naked just isn't that important anymore and I didn't want to go through another surgery. At my post op my dr. told me that he thought I didn't need a lift anyway so that was good to hear...especially from your ps. So, glad to hear you are happy with being You ! It really does feel great doesn't it. I only got a couple sport type bras and I hope to go to Nordstrom and get fitted sometime in the future. Maybe try another store/sales person....I think the only thing that matters is how You feel. I may have to bend over and poor my breast into a bra from now on but I still couldn't be happier ! ! ! Take care of yourself...

Exactly my sentiments! I'm happy and feel so much better without that weight and sweating (perspiring) underneath the breast, which here in TX is miserable. I love my new self and so does my husband, he told me even my mood has changed, I seem so satisfied with my body now. I'll be 63 next month and I would probably have looked this anyway, except smaller, I didn't have anything. Like at least a AA. You might check out the Zee bra and the Handful bra when you're past the sports bra period. For something that is comfortable but can be worn out too. The Zee bra comes with two pads so you can have more or less. I haven't gotten it but I can't wait till it gets here. xoxo
