I just had mto bready augmentatuon done 10/30/15. I decided on silicone 450ccs and he recommended adding an extra 25ccs to the right breast bc I didn't like how much smaller it was compared to the left breast. They are moderate profile and under the muscle, he made that decision based on my body style and shape. The first 2 days were pretty rough but I feel alright now other than the tightness and heavy feeling. I had some pretty bad bruising and since I was an out of state patient I sent my PS pictures and he said it was normal, I usually bruise easily anyway. I know it will take weeks till months for them to drop but I find myself worrying a lot that they never will. I wonder if I'm using my arms to much, I went back to work today. I'm not lifting anything over 10 lbs but I do use my arms a lot and probably shouldn't be doing as much as I am but it's not painful to reach above my head, shower, wash my hair, do laundry etc. I'm also worried that I should have gone a little bigger, I can't wait for the weeks and months to come to see what the end result is. PS told me the right breast would sit higher longer than the left because of the extra 25ccs but the left one actually looks like its higher. I'm very happy that I still have sensation in both nipples and I hope this doesn't change but I have a good but of numbness under and on the sides.
One week post op
Today is one week since my breast augmentation. I've had a good bit of pain (mostly the left breast), it feels like it's just the muscles so I took the Valium I was prescribed. My sternum hurts so bad it feels like it's broken, the Valium helped and once I got home from work I placed ice packs on them. I'm not able to hold my arms down by my side like I usually would bc they're poking out the sides and under my arms...this causes a lot of discomfort between my shoulder blades in my back. I'm off work the next 2 days so I'll be taking it easy.
Day 8..first day with no prescribed pain medicine!
Today has been much better than yesterday =) When I woke up this morning I took two Motrin with breakfast and haven't had to take a pain killer yet and its almost 6pm. I still have a good bit of discomfort due to swelling and implants being very high, also my breast bone still feels very sore. I have my fingers crossed for another good day tomorrow and an even better one Monday since I'll be at work.
