I would suggest to anyone considering a breast augmentation to do a lot of research. Learn all you can, not only about the risks, but also about the details of recovery. I knew what to expect from my recovery and that made things a lot easier. I didn't worry as much because I knew what was normal. I watched a lot of videos and read a lot of forum posts. No two people are the same, so everyone's results will vary, and it gave me a range of results from many women. Results aren't instant, it takes time and patience.
The first week of recovery was the hardest, not only physically, but emotionally as well. Every day I noticed significant changes. It helped to take pictures, even though they were clothed, so I could see the changes and it lifted my spirits. The first two weeks, I did as little as I could. I didn't want to mess anything up. After he went back to work, I still took it easy and eased back into my normal activities. I'm still easing back into things.
I love my results. I love the shape, the size, the feel. I feel like they fit me perfect, like they have always been my own. I like that they look big naked and are easily hidden in certain clothes. I didn't want my augmentation to be obvious, but I also was worried about being too small. Couldn't be happier.
One is settling a little bit slower than the other, but that's normal and to be expected since they are two different surgeries. I know a lot of women worry about this. They were sore for a while, but now they are only sore in the morning, aka "morning boob". My steri strips are still holding tight, but I'm glad, it eases my worry about pulling at my incisions. So I haven't seen my incisions, but my next checkup appointment is next week. I will update after then.
