1 Week and 1/2 Post Op! Looking Great Feeling Great! - Westmount, QC

Hi all! I had 325 cc silicone implants done under...

Hi all! I had 325 cc silicone implants done under the muscle a week and a half ago. i was a 36 A before the operation and i got measured yesterday and i now fit into a 36 B or 34 c. I am absolutely happy with them now that the pain is almost all gone. ( I recovered wonderfully). For me, the first 3 days were the worst but it got better sooner than I imagined. Make sure you have someone with you for those 3 to 5 days .not only to help you do basically everything for you, but also to have someone to talk to, and put up with your mood swings caused my the general anestesia and also to help out with your boredom you'll go through. Anyway! all that was worth it, my boobs look super natural and feel awesome! I wanted these boobs so bad that i almost forgot about the pain sometimes:)

After my 7 day post op, my PS said it was ok to consume alcohol, so I went out for a few drinks with my girls that same night and reallllly enjoyed it! but the day after that, i noticed on my left boob side ( close to my arm pit) there was a lump. about the size of a pea, it got me super worried and kept feeling it. then i noticed it hurt a little....not sure if it was due to the fact that i kept on touching it or what so ever, but anyway, i took an appointment with my doctor right away! i'll let you guys know what it was as soon as I can...but if someone had the same thing, please let me know!

Otherwise, my surgical tape fell off last night in my shower! I kept on scratching the sides cause it was sooooo itchy! Im super happy that they fell off on their own though!

I only have a picture of my boobs at this stage with a bra and without. they are still a bit sore and still reallllly firm but they have fell down a bit already.., i'll show you guys more pictures later on when the scars will be less apparent :)

if you have any questions about my experience, don't be shy!
good luck to all of you! :)

My lump is still there, i'm pretty nervous about it:(

i touched my sideboob and i noticed the lump is still there... i'm pretty nervous about it... it feels like a pea or something! please someone give me feedback asap !

One boob bigger than the other?..

Hey! I just noticed that my LEFT boob ( the one with the lump) seems smaller than my right boob... is this normal? the weird thing is that my LEFT boob was bigger than my right before surgery....and there was the same amount of silicone put in both boobs! I know my appointment with my doc is tomorrow, but i'm still worried! would anyone know why this is happening?

ps: it's hard to tell in the picture but I'm not crazy.....left one is smaller

about the lump on my left boob

So in the end, the lump on my left breast is nothing to worry about. Basically, there's a lump there because the pectoral muscle covering my breast isn't as thick on that side. Due to the fact that I am right handed, I have more muscle covering my breast on my right side. I also didn't have much breast tissue in the first place! Anyway, the lump would be the ending of the implant and thats about it. If it starts to hurt, that's when we should all worry! but to all the girls who have this, I wouldn't worry! This happens all the time :) Good luck to all of you!

My doctor's nurse said it would be three months till settled and 6 months to one year for the final results. I wil keep talking to myself thru this process so I don't become too anxious when I notice the changes. Best of luck healing

Apparently that was just the ending of the bag! nothing to worry about

Very common, any uneveness or asymmetry is magnified by implants, one of the main reasons I'm getting mine removed.

Well it's more of a discomfort. Today i've been feeling like my pec muscle is just too tight . possibly cause of stress (makes muscles contract) but yeah they aren't 100% yet. my nipples are still really sensitive so any tight shirt makes them sore! otherwise, when I wear loose T's without a bra I feel goooood :)

I thought u can't wear a regular bra after surgery only like a sports bra what should u get or need for after surgery ti be more comfortable
  • Reply
My ps said that I could wear a metal free bra after the 1st week. Aslong as it doesn't rub on the incisions. So I bought a regular bra and removed the metal hoops. I wear it really loose so it doesn't hurt anything (its just so we don't see my nipples through my shirt) But if I can, I don't wear anything at all, way more comfortable!

Lol I'm curious is it true ur nipples are more sensitive n stay hard? I'm sure that can be a lil uncomfortable as well
  • Reply
I hve a bit of both pain and discomfort especially whn im not wearing a bra I feel like they are heavy and when im wearing my strap. did your ps give u a strap to wear to bring them down into place? My nipples are extra sensitive I heard they will be for a while!
  • Reply
hey mama drama..my ps suggested front clip sports bras which I found so uncomfortable because they dig into insicions I found a great sports bra thts a bit longer thn the regular ones and sort of have cups for your boobies to drop into thts what im using now..Playtex brand a bit pricey but well worth it!

Ok thanks for the info
  • Reply
no strap was needed for me, I think they're just supposed to go down naturally... what's the cc of your implants? Apparently at first the nipples are extremely sensitive and after a while you barely feel them....hopefully that's not true! I still wanna feel them haha!

same here I need sensation ;) and thnks..

Hey so I talked to my PS today and the lump I have on my left boob is normal! Since i'm right handed, there's more muscle covering the implant on that side. So basically, the lump is just a bit of the implant and the weaker muscle together...Something like that! But don't worry... it's normal! Hope your recovery is going well:)
