4 days post op- I will write in detail about the past few days but I am up and mobile being managed well with Percocet. Pain level about 1-2 minimal nausea. I was able to speak with the anesthesiaologist at length about my fear of nausea. He was able to reassure me that he would give maximums of anti nausea meds and pump me up with fluids which is what is responsible for nausea. I. Had the desire twice to barf after surgery passed quickly and managed well with alternating compazine and zofran. I also used queas ease which is OTC. I placed cotton balls with pepermint oil around the headboard and nightstand. Drank Gatorade non stop then pineapple juice and arnica tabs for bruising. By day 3 I had an appetite, but mostly ate cream of wheat Apple sauce crackers with peanut butter protein shakes. I will post after pics when I have them.

Seen by surgeon for follow up day 4

Dr Kelly and medical assistant to undress wounds look at incisions and check patency of drains. Everything good, appointment was at 315 I was 5 minutes early and back to my car by 250pm, excellent customer service. Doctor said both nipples and belly button look great and are healthy "which isn't always the case". Receptionist remarked how good I looked post op. I have been using a walker and using body pillows to elevate legs and upper torso( don't have a recliner). Pain is very minimal at this point, took the perc. Round the clock every 4 hours up till now with pain remaing in the 1-3 range since surgery ( today about 1). I am walking hunched over and use the walker but now am able to brush my own hair and sponge bathe. Also able to use toilet now, was using female urinal first 3 days. I don't have post op pics yet but was very happy with the cleavage I now have and my incisions. My daughter has been my round the clock nurse and between her after care and this surgeons skill and care as well as his medical team I am doing very well. Dr Kelly is a very sweet man, I think one of the nicest doctors I know. Anyhow I will try to post after pics on Monday when the garments are taken off again by the surgeon. My drains will remain in place until there is less than 25cc per day in each drain, hopefully before I fly home.

8 days post op drains out!

Went to see doc as I pulled out partially a Jackson Pratt drain, and they decided to remove them both as my drainage has decreased. Been on only Tylenol and antibiotics for last few days. Pain really has been at worst 2-3 but mostly 1-2. Back does hurt from being hunched over, but each day it stand a little straighter. Tried to walk at a mall to get out while in Miami well bad move I tired really easily. The next big thing is I will be able to take a real shower with regular tap water Monday before my flight home! That's in 2 days, I have one more doctor appt on Monday morning. I will post more pics from this morning, incision is healing and swelling going down!!!

Dr Kelly and Dr pascual

I have to say dr Kelly work n the entire practice from the receptionist to the medical assistants to the nurses, coordinators and rest of staff are EXCELLENT!!!! I get through easily to the office am seen quickly by the doctor and have had NO COMPLAINTS!!!! Irivette is awesome, if you are going to look at doctors in Miami for bbl, or ty or ba u ore it to urself to check this practice out. Worth every penny. BEWARE my daughter had a procedure at Vanity where her lipo was done beautifully but the post op care was really bad. I'm a RN and I can't believe what was done. If u want to know specifics hit me up privately I'll get u in touch with her. She is on realself read her review. She saw Dr Hassan who did beautiful work, no complaints, but some serious things happened after and the way the office handled it was awful

3 weeks post op

So I have a seroma and it's been tough to have a plastic surgeon see me in NJ. Aspirating it is usually done but my primary doctor didn't want to mess with it unless infected then would send me to see a surgeon. I am waiting for Dr jelly to review my pics and let me know what he thinks. I may be flying back to Florida to have him do my 4 week check up and aspirated the seroma if necessary. I have posted 3 week post op pics

Trip back to Florida for aspiration of seroma

I went back on 2-9-15 to be drained and then drained again on 2-12-15 before going back home. It wasn't as bad as I thought, they have me lidocaine at the area to be aspirated then withdrew 45 cc both times. I am wearing compression garment and now having lymphatic massage twice a week. I am standing upright but still feel tenderness at Breast occasionally and a tugging sensation in my stomache very minimal disconfort. I can't say enough about my care at Dr Kelly office, the whole team is excellent, worth the money spent. Please beware of bargains at some of these surgical centers I personally seen the shody care my daughter received at another less expensive practice. Dr Pascual and Dr Kelly are wonderful I will post updated pics soon
