Wow! I can't believe it's been 9 months since you came into my life! Seems like yesterday, but in other ways- like you've always been here. So, since it was my girls' 9 months birthday, what better way to celebrate than to take my girls shopping!!! Oh how they love to shop ;)
So off to VS we went. This was a fun shopping trip, not a serious one- so VS was the perfect stop. When we walked in their eyes got big, giggles filled the air and they started buzzing from rack to rack! Oh how excited they were that VS now had 34DDD ! Just their size!
After loading up with Demi's, balconette, barely there, body by V, Fabulous, and more in various colors- off to the fitting room they went. They tried on, admired their self, totally enjoying the moment! Finally they settled on one they both agreed on, a beautiful creamy apricot lightly lined lace Demi. Since they were so enjoying their trip, and they readily agreed on a choice rather quickly- my generous heart swelled and I let them get a super cute white and gray leopard print with pink trim. Oh how excited they were! So.... I said on what the heck! You're only 9 months once, get the panties to match! They were super excited over that , as their friend Tummy- just got tucked and had been on the mend. They knew this would make Tummy's recovery so much happier! So 1 1/2 hrs later we left, bags in hand and my girls filled with their exciting day ;)
Now, how are they doing? Great! It's been 9 months, my shape has change alot from day one. My breast are fuller on the bottom pole and have more of a slope on the upper pole. The Mentor silicone are fabulous!!! They feel great, move like breast tissue, have a little jiggle ;) and just enough side boob that's cute in summer shirts. :) sigh..... And I'm loving filling up bathing suit tops! First time, EVER! :)
The size has not changed since 2 weeks post op when I was fitted, I remain a 34DDD. In very sheer bras ( more stretch Lacey) I sometimes will get a 34DD to make sure there is not gap, my shape has changed, I still have nice roundness on top- it's just not under my collar bone :) and I totally love my cleavage!!! That and the roundness on top are my top two favorites of my breast- well, that doesn't include my top, top favorite, their size!!! Love, love love them!!!!
My scars continue to heal very nicely. Usually twice a day I do circular massage with cocobutter or bio oil around the scar. The adhesion ridge under the scars are notably softer and the puckering is almost completely gone on the left breast (right in pictures) and probably 95% gone in my problem child, right breast (left in pictures). My right breast needed more lift, and a larger implant, so I think the stitching and surgery was a little more extensive on that side- probably the reason it taking a little more time to flatten out.
In the pictures, you can see the incision line-although it is almost completely faded. When the nipples are erect- the line and ridge is not even noticeable :) on yippie skippie!!!! It can only get better from here!
I wear under wire bras ( per instruction of my Dr). I exercise daily and wear a high impact sports bra, yes they are expensive, but I really want to protect my investments! I continue to sleep Ina good sports bra as well, my Dr says this helps prevent them from going lateral while that pocket heals the first year. I also massage daily ( light press in an upward tilt on the bottom of the implant, causing it to press gently upwards- he said this should be done to help prevent capsular contracture- so while I'm in the shower I massage and once a month ladies- check for lumps and bumps with SBE!!! And remember October is breast health awareness! :)
I can't wait to see how my girls look at 1 yr! They are beautiful (to me), I love how they are even, symmetrical, perky, big and full. My Dr did a great job and his staff was super to help me choose the best size! I love how my clothes fit, they are large, but for my frame they don't look like "oh, you've got implants!"
I'm so very thankful for the small, barely noticeable incisions Dr Schaffer used to lift my breast!!!!
