I Have New Boobs and I Love Them

I am the mother of five wonderful children. I breast fed all of them from 6 months to a year and the toll it took on my breasts was a huge one. I just had a TT on 4/18 and I am so happy with the results. I want to enhance the look of my breast because bras don't fit me and when I bend over one boob always decides to jump out. My shirts don't fit because not only did I have a belly bulge but my bras looked crazy under my shirts. I am 5'2" and 115 pounds. My BFF says that my boobs are -A so there you have it. I met with my doctor today to check on the progress of my TT and we scheduled my BA/BL for 5/30. We are going with 225cc under the muscle saline. She says that will leave me with a Full B or small C. She doesn't want to go bigger than that because I don't have a lot of tissue and rippling will become an issue.

BUTTA, my sx twin. Are you nervous? I just want to get it over with. I am feeling kind of guilty because hubby just lost his job after 12 years and here I am getting plastic surgery. Lots of emotions right now :(. My pre op is tomorrow sooooo nervous!

You've definitely paid your dues. Good for you for doing something for yourself! Looking forward to following your progress.

1 Week Away
I had my pre op today and I have to say I am not as nervous as I thought I would be. I am more eager to see bumps on my chests that are bigger than my oldest girl. She said she is shooting for 200cc but I shared my feelings of being too small and wishing I had gone bigger. She wants to stay as proportionate to my body as possible. So I told her it was her call because I was on the table but know that I want results I can see. She said she can plan to go up to 240cc. I love my PS! She is so awesome. This time next week I will be on my way home. I am scheduled for 12 noon so now just get ready. I have to go to Walmart and buy a bra, I bought some snacks for me that are healthy. I bought some rice cakes and some trail mix but with fruit.

5 days BEFORE sx
So my sx is all paid in full. I had no idea how I was going to pay for sx but God worked it out. We wanted to keep our cash on hand due to some unforeseen circumstances so we used care credit. I am going to drop off my scripts today and yesterday rushed to get my ps a copy of my mammo! So we are all set. I only have to get 2 rx. I have leftovers of the patch and nausea medicine from TT. They moved my sx from 1pm to 11:05. I just have to get my bra and just get some fresh fruit and veggies for after. I really hope I am satisfied with the size.

You look like the perfect candidate for implants. good idea to go with smaller cc's....Look forward to seeing the wonderful results! Good Luck:-)

Thanks! I asked ps to get as close to 240cc. I'd rather be too big than too small if you know what I mean. I told her not looking to be big Ang, but I am paying a lot of money so I want to at least look like I have a good rack lol!
I know right. I am trying to clean house but still recovering from TT so I have the older kids helping a lot and the younger ones a little. Lol! No one ever told me having babies would turn your body into medusa. Girl every time I look at my pre surgery body I fall into a trance of depression! Lol!

3 Days Before SX
So I woke up extremely swollen from my TT. I think I must have overdid it yesterday so resting today. I am going to my nephew's bday party so I am trying out the bra theory today. I have on 3 bra's and I have to say it actually looks quite nice. I can see the proportion the ps is going for, however I could go a little bigger. I am going to pick up my bra today and drop my scripts off.

Day Before Sx
So I received a call this morning that due to circumstances beyond my PS control, my sx is being rescheduled. The new date is yet to be determined. I am going out of the country July 21st so trying to get it done to give me time to heal. So they are going to contact sx center to see if they can add on a case any day next week and it will be done. Otherwise, I think I may have to cancel my sx and just forget it. Maybe it's a sign from God that I shouldn't be having it :( uggghhhhhh!

3 Days Before Sx
Okay so my nerves are really starting to set in. OMG! I was all set this past week but ow I am getting really nervous. When I got my TT, the hardest part for me was getting the IV. That isht hurt like hell. I remember getting on the table and then being out like a light. I plan to have my favorite meal on Sunday which consists of Hooters naked wings and curly fries with ranch. I don't worry about weight because with all these kids I am sooooo active, they keep me running everywhere. Lol!

That is why I would recommend my ps to everyone. She is awesome. I am so glad that it didn't linger on for weeks. How are you?
Day 4, doing better each day. It's a process, that's for sure. Just be sure to take things slow and easy, and take care of yourself.
Thank you! I was really thinking God is this a sign, yeah a sign I am straight! Lol!

Day Before Sx
I am totally freaking out. I am so nervous and I don't know why. I've picked out my kids clothes for the week and I just have to write out some menus for dinner and hubby will pick up some fresh fruit and veggies while I'm in surgery. My surgery time is expected to last for 4 hours. He will drive himself bonkers sitting in the waiting room so this willngivenhim something to do to kill about an hour or so. This will be my last post until maybe tomorrow.

I'm so Excited for you!!!! Got my BA/BL on April 3. I'm at 9 weeks and still not completely 100% but I have no regrets, I would do it again in a heartbeat. Please keep us posted! I hope everything went well! Remember to stay ahead of the pain with your meds and get your rest. I was always overdoing it ad regretting it later. I felt the exact same way you did about looking at yourself and falling into a trance of depression but that is over now!!!

Day of Sx
We made it to hospital at 10 and got checked in and then they called me to the back. Most of the staff remembered me because I just had my TT on 4/18. The staff was awesome! I peed in the cup and I'm not preganant, lol. The nurse to do my IV was so nervous, I was glad when the anestiosologist put it in. She did it without any pain and that was most of my worries. Next, PS came in and marked me up. We laughed and laughed some more. They had my hubby come in and then they gave me the good stuff and off down the hallway we went. In the OR I could see many people helping me get prepped. I told ps about the stitch from TT, so she took care of that while I was out. I remember waking up and being in pain. My nurse jennifer was awesome. There was one particular nurse I yelled at because the food table was stuck under my bed and she kept hitting the bed, pulling on my IV tubes and I asked her kindly many times to get help and she just kept right on so I yelled get away from me, I don't want you to touch me and she called my nurse over.

We got home around 6:30pm and in the hospital, I couldn't tell that I had a breast augmentation. I made sure I asked my ps to get as close to 240 and she said she yes I will, I have it my notes. When I was wheeled to recovery and got all the blankets off of me and I could sit up, I saw BOOBS! I was so worried about being small but not anymore. Once we got home I started taking 2 Percocet right away and will continue with 2 until Day 2. Right now just trying to stay ahead of any pain. They took my temperature before I left and it registered 100, so I am taking Advil as well for right now to stop the fever. I have my post op appt in the afternoon and I haven't been able to sleep. Usually the Percocet knocks me out so I wonder if I have a low dosage or my adrenaline is so high I can't tell the difference. She ended up not using a drain and I have no idea what my incision looks like. As soon as I can I will post some pics.

1 Day Post Op
So everything looks good! She put in 240cc on each side and they look awesome! Most of my swelling is now around my TT scar.
She changed the dressing and there was a little blood around the nipple but nothing to be concerned with. I was really worried I was going to be too small but I am very happy with the size so long as they don't shrink :). Getting ready to take a little nap, I didn't get any sleep last night.

Hope your pain goes away soon. The first few weeks can be rough! Just take it easy and be sure to pamper yourself. While recovering I indulged with a pedicure and lots of ice cream, Chocolate always helps too! Lol Look forward to seeing the post op piks soon....;-))

I'm sorry you are in pain. For me, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th day were the worst. I tried to go off the pain meds and be "tough", but it was really hard. One thing I did learn - if you were given a muscle relaxer be sure to take it. It makes such a difference. I can get by with it and tylenol, but without it I am miserable. Take your medicine, sleep as much as you can and don't expect much from yourself the next few days.

4 Days Post Op
So yesterday was probably one of the worst days ever! I actually had the moment where I asked myself what in the hell did I do to myself. Up until this point I hadnt had a BM. I learned with my TT how debilitating the percocets could be to ones system. So I was taking dulcolax (2) a night with the pain meds and still nothing. I think I almost ate an entire package of prunes and nothing. Yesterday I was in so much discomfort. I just felt like my chest was on fire. I really haven't been sleeping so not sure if that was a factor. It has been hard to maneuver with just having my TT done too. So yesterday the farting started and I knew that something was brewing in my tummy and then all of a sudden in the afternoon I went and could not stop going. When hubby came home, he helped me shower and I noticed the swelling everywhere. I also noticed that my sports bra is too small. I could go with a bigger size but I'm already at a 36. When I put my TT garment on and my sports bra, I felt like sausage being squeezed into a casing. I had hubby fix me an english muffin and some hot chocolate with Ganoderma in it. I slept really good, hubby had to wake me up to take my advil and antibiotic. I woke up this morning and had a slight occurrence of diarrhea but not as bad as yesterday. I will take it easy today because I actually feel pretty good. I hope I don't lose any volume with swelling. I love the size they are now. I have heard mixed reviews. The majority have said once swelling subsided there was no reduction in size and then others have said once swelling subsided they now feel really small.

Debbie Downer Spoiler Alert
I am having a moment right now at 12:05 am. I have to document the good with the bad but I am really asking myself why did I do this to myself. My boobs are sore but not that bad. I haven't taken anything since lunch time today for pain. I am massaging the outside near like armpit, that is where I feel the most discomfort. Once I kinda rub it down it feels better. I just think I am ready to get back to normalcy. A major part of it has to do with the fact that I just had surgery a bout 7 weeks ago and I am still recovering from that. I am going to try to get some sleep and hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I was away for the weekend and missed your last update. I trust you are feeling better by now. I've had some great days and some pretty bad days. I love my new boobies, but it hasn't come without a price. Just remember that this really does only last a short time in the grand scheme of things. It just feels like a long time right now. I'm only 11 days out and feel like I should be 100% done healing and back to normal. That isn't the way it works. Patience is so important right now. Rest and have patience, you will love all you've done in the end.

You will feel better in a couple of days. It's faster recovery than the tt. Don't be sad, think how amazing you are going to look when all the recovery is done!

Don't be down !!!!!! It takes time to get better . I never wished I didn't do it I just hate not being able to do much . Some days are hard . You will live them when it's all said and done . Its all going to be ok ! Maybe you should get some larazapam it helps .

So after my Debbie Downer weekend :), I wanted to update and let everyone know I am back on the horse. Okay so I think that the fact I really wasn't sleeping and feeling like I was stuck in the house 24/7 had a huge impact. I finally got some sleep and boy was I happy. I also left the house for a couple of hours this weekend and what a huge difference. I went back to driving today, the soreness in my armpit is gone and I have been massaging three times a day with my belly and they have dropped a lot. I took pics so hope to get them up tomorrow. My sports bra isn't so tight so something has happened. I love them so much and hubby can't stop looking at them. Every now and then they get sore, but for the most part it's manageable. I get the stitches out on Friday and I hope it doesn't hurt. So thanks to everyone in advance for checking on me during my time of pure INSANITY!!!! :)

Larazapam is for anxiety . I had to take it for a year for anxiety attacks becaus I would get so upset . My husband of 25 years died from cancer over 2 yrs ago . I still take them when I need one it relaxes me . I'm remarried to another awesome man . I used to take 4 to 5 a day . Now I might take one 1 time a month .
Soooooo happy you are feeling better . It is hard when your in the house 24/7 and no sleep doesn't help . :-)

2 Weeks Post Op
I just had my appointment on Friday and I am loving my new boobs. She told me to just massage the area of where she did the BL, it was a little sore but I am massaging three times a day with Palmers Vitamin E oil and I am loving the results so far. You can't even see the scars. My hubby is thrilled and can't wait to play with his new toys. I am feeling soooo much better. I wake up with sore boobs every morning and I just massage them and they feel better. The seatbelt is probably one of the worst parts of it. Every day it gets better and I am so glad that I did this.

I am loving my new body. I have a doctors appt on Monday so I can't wait
to add new pics and update everyone. My hourglass shape is back but swell hell
is no fun :(. my tummy is flat, despite the swelling and I still have some
skin near pubic area that is a little jiggly. Not sure what that is about
and if that just takes a matter of time to tighten up. I know it takes a year
to heal completely. My boobs are awesome :) at certain times of the day I wish
I had gone bigger and then other times in the day I think they are big. LOL!
I'm still in a sports bra or no bra at all. You can hardly see any scars and tummy
scars are coming along. How are you trumpet?
Hey Pink, I'm doing well! I went to spin today! I did ok! I still swell with any movement! but other than that I'm good! other than that I'm ok! I just put on some jeans yesterday for the 1st time. I said to myself I wasn't going to buy any new clothes til I know my new size. Right now I'm at 12/14. I was hoping for a 10!lollolo

1 Month Post OP
So I had a stitch that had to come out today, I honestly thought it was a scab, it's kinda hard to see down there. They have fully dropped and fluffed. I expressed I wish I went a little bigger but overall I am ecstatic. Sometimes they look really big and the other times they look really proportionate. Go figure :) I can wear a regular bra now, so that means Victoria Secrets shopping for new bra and panties. They are soft and you can't even see the scar. I am also doing scar therapy 3 times a day with palmers on them as well. I love them and people said that silicone is much more softer but saline is just as good! Mine are soft and hubby likes to kiss just on the top of them. Shoot, was that a TMI moment. Lol. No more restrictions, I have been cleared for gym and all the amusement rides I can dream of.

Hi, I was wondering how you're progress was going. I have darker skin too and was worried about the scars. Do you have any new photos without the tape.

I will try to post some new pics tomorrow. My doctor is excellent! The scar line is very thin and I can see where parts of the line are totally invisible. I have been really diligent about massaging 3 times a day or more. Even my TT scar has parts of it where the line is almost invisible. I figure next year I will be right on point. I notice a scar line around the aerola but hoping it will diminish soon.

I LOVE MY BOOBS! Although I wasn't going for porn, I think at times I look like a porn queen. Lol! I always said I would have rather gone bigger than smaller so I probably could have gone with 225 or 200 like she said but nahhhhhhh I am so loving the 240cc. Any bigger I would have been sorry :). The only downside would be the raised skin around the areola but I am totally satisfied with my procedure. The scar line looks sooo good. My bra size at Victoria's Secret is 34C from a 32B.

She does her best to make sure Dr. Mahony's schedule and communication between the two is always on point. I would recommend her to everyone!
