I'm 13 days out from my surgery and my mind is...
I'm 13 days out from my surgery and my mind is racing, mostly over sizing. All my life I've been athletic and my body has followed suit. I've always wanted bigger breasts to achieve a more femine and balanced look to my body. Initially I went in for a consult and agreed on a 450cc silicone mod+ but I went back recently and the ps measured my bwd at 15 cm and told me I could go much bigger and it would still appear natural. We did some virtual reality consulting and I'm now feeling comfortable being beteeen the 550cc and 600cc. Ultimately what fits best is up to my surgeon but I'm glad to be a bit more relaxed on the sizing, for now atleast.
Getting things prepared
I'm trying to quell my anxiety by getting things ready for after the surgery. I ordered a sit-up pillow and a post-op bra on amazon. Also, I noticed a lot of girls posting about muscle relaxers post-op and my ps never prescribed me any. I will have to call them on Monday and ask. They're going to love and my million questions. So far they've been extremely helpful and informative with any questions I have had. I'm pretty confident I picked a great ps and team to perform this surgery.
Up and down
Two days ago I was prepared, happy, and settled with a 550-600cc implant but now I'm back to being uncertain. It just seems so large and I'm afraid to look like a blow up doll afterwards. Im positive it's mostly just pre surgery jitters. I'm confident in my ps though and I trust in his abilities. I'm sure he won't let me down. But these days need to just hurry up, the waiting game is horrible!
Prepping in full affect!
I'm getting everything ready for the boobie birthday. Ice packs, Benadryl, travel pillow, Gatorade/water, coconut oil/cocoa butter, colace, puzzle books. May be going a little overboard but it's helping me keep calm. Today in picking up my remaining items on here list.
My brilliant contours post-op bra came, I really hope it fits after it's super cute and comfy.
Side note, I'm so glad I picked the ps I did. The dr and his team have answered every question I've thrown at them. They are definitely making me feel comfortable and at ease about the operation. I'm positive I couldn't have picked a better place!
Surprisingly not nervous. I cannot wait to see what my ps has in store for me. I have everything prepped and ready for my surgery so I'm just staying busy till the operation. I sent a couple more wish pics to my ps and talked to the nurse one last time (lol well maybe last time) about some post op questions. I simply cannot wait!

Day of treatment
Whoops Didn't post the after, can't see much till the bandage comes off thursday. But I'm pretty excited already ????
Day 2 post-op
I can't get over the lack of pain. I even went shopping today. The walking around seems to help and ice ice ice! I'm going to go down a dose in my pain meds, I'd like to be off of them tomorrow! The only thing I'm dealing with a my voice is gone lol, I think it's from the anesthesia. Lots of sleep and relaxation and liquids. I'll post more pics tomorrow after my post-op appointment.
Post-op Day 3
Today was definitely the worse day pain wise.l, but it's my own fault. I overdid it yesterday and now I'm paying for its. Also, I thought it'd be a good idea to get off my pain meds... al of those combin d lead to a pretty rough morning. Fortunately I'm feeling much better now that I got up and walked around. Also, saw my ps today for a follow up and he said everything looks good!
Okay just a bit of advice,
If you're having constipation from the pain meds, it's bett r to address is immediately then to allow it to go as far as I did... my ps office changed my pain meds, gave me an anti-neasia, and. Suppository and I thankful I jab an amazing bf who was ablr to run out and get my medicine while I laid on the bathroom floor.
On the plus side, pain in my chest today is much more tolerable than yesterday! I can lift my hands all the way over my head. So ithe healing is going, just a minor roadblock.
5 days post-op
Today I feel great! The ps changed my painkillers so they don't constipate me anymore, I'm ecstatic about that. Seems that the muscle relaxer really helps more than the painkillers to help with discomfort. I have some bruising going on at the insert points but I expected that since I bruise easily. Also, the bloating is still there but it's tolerable now and going down so I'm just being patient.
I tried on a bunch of clothes today, it was awesome how much different my profile is and how much better all of my clothes fit!
Almost a week post op
I can notice a difference now in my boobs, they've gotten much softer to the touch. They're still stiff and firm in some spots and they're a little high but they've come down considerably. Pain is at a minimal I'm just dealing with muscle spasms from time to time. The bloat is still a drag ???? I've been chugging water to try to get back to where i was. I can't wait till the stitches come out and I can erase the lines under the steri strips! I want to start massaging but my ps said no just the band... so I'm trying to be patient.
Not much has changed from yesterday. I went to VS and found a few sports bras. This halter top style one is mind-blowing. I cant get over how my girls look in this bra! It's official, I have ta-ta's!
Back to work
I'm not sure what is going on but for the past three days I've been very uncomfortable. My chest has been very tight and the spasms have been driving me crazy. As soon as I step outside or get a hint of cold weather my chest tightens and my implants feel like they're crawling under my collar bone. Also, my breasts have been very sensitive to the touch, particularly my left (which is odd Bc I'm right handed).
I called the ps and they told me it is just nerves and my implants dropping and to keep taking nsaids for relief and the tramadol if necessary. Makes sense I guess but I wish there was something I could do to make this a little more comfortable the flexeril they gave me as a muscle relaxer and the tramadel for pain aren't doing anything. I don't want to be taking narcotics 10 days out but if they'll bring relief I'll do whatever it takes. So now I'm patiently waiting for a call back from the nurse for suggestions.
Two weeks since surgery
Still dealing with on and off tightness in my upper chest but mostly all pain is gone. I'll get my sutures out on Thursday which is a good think since my steri strips have pretty much all fallen off.
Every day I enjoy them more and more, sometimes I find myself forgetting I even had anything done. It's so exciting to have boobs finally after going a lifetime without them. I cannot wait till they settle all the way but even looking at my day one to today's pics I can see lots of change happening!
It's so nice to wake up and have wonderful boobs! Every day I get more and more comfortable with them and I am more pleased then ever that I went through with the process.
I'm 23 days post op currently and they're starting to really take a nice shape. The only unpleasant part I'm dealing with is muscle spasms but they've gotten better. I've been told it's due to the size of the implants and it's normal so I'm not stressing about it. Also, my nipples are still pretty sensitive so I'm hoping eventually that will subside.
Last week I went to the store and bought some new bras and I was measured at Victoria secrets at a 34DDD. I bought a few dresses with plunging necklines just to celebrate my new size!
2 months booby bday
I'm doing a quick update for my two months mark today. I love my new ta-tas! I'm so happy with the size and how they've fallen into place and theyre not even done settling yet. There has been some ups and downs and moments of worry and but now I'm finally seeing a glimpse of the end product and it was absolutely worth it!
4 months post op!
I'm four months post op and I couldn't be happier. They've dropped into place and have become soft and squishy. It's amazing to me how much different clothes looks with a nice set of tatas. The only concern I have is from working out. I was cleared to do anything I felt comfortable doing and tried push-ups. They felt so weird I couldn't continue. Other then that and a few muscle spasms once in a blue moon I'm ecstatic and everything is great.
