So far I'm so excited with the results! They are the "Gummy Bear" implants that do not require massaging. The first week of recovery was painful for the first 3 days, and then uncomfortable on days 4-7. It hurt to lift my arms, so my aunt literally had to feed me for days 1-2. The worst part for me was feeling like I couldn't breathe!! I kept lifting my sports bra away from my chest because I felt like that's why it was tight, but it wasn't. It was just the implants, the swelling and skin stretching. It was hard to catch a deep breath! More uncomfortable rather than painful, though. By day 8 I was back at work and could drive (I work in an office, mostly sitting at a desk). I still get tired more easily if I'm walking around a lot, and have that "Morning Boob" sensation....like just feeling like they are really tight and sore in the morning when I first wake up.
I'm at week 2 now and feeling SO much better! I'm finally not as aware of the implants or that weird breathing thing. Sometimes I forget I even have them (until I walk past the mirror!). Just remember that it DOES get better. You'll start to feel so much more normal at 2 weeks, although still no heavy lifting etc.
I'll keep checking in to keep you guys updated on everything! Here are some photos from the first 2 weeks. Good luck to everyone else out there, I'm happy to answer any questions!! :)
