I Want to feel Sexy and Full Busted Again! - Brookfield, WI

I am 43 and a mother of 4,(ages 25, 22, 19 &...

I am 43 and a mother of 4,(ages 25, 22, 19 & 17) I breastfed 3 of my babies. I was a C cup before babies and a D cup during breastfeeding. I was 126 lbs until I started to go thru marital stress. I lost 31 lbs and was only 95 lbs. Of course it seems like 10 lbs came from my breasts!!!


I got divorced and when I started to date I was so embarassed to be seen naked. Of course the men my age I dated were no better. Who IS sexy at 40-43??? I met a wonderful man (with 3 kids) and we are now married. We got married in Las Vegas 6/30/2012. That was our "honeymoon". SO this year for our 1 year annivesary we dedided to go to the Bahamas. I had to carefully research our trip due to my jealousy and lack of breasts. I didn't want to go on vacation where women were walking around topless.


Then I started looking online at beach dresses. I got depressed when every dress I wanted I could NOT fill out! Then and there I decided to redirect my search online to Plastic Surgeons. I read many testimonials and decided this is what I was going to do. The next morning I woke up and thought "what the hell are you thinking?" Then I looked at the dresses I want for the Bahamas and decided I AM doing this. If I can finance it, I will. My husband is supportive because he wants me to feel good and secure. He's an ass man, so my breasts don't bother him. He says he likes them natural. But I want to look in the mirror and be happy. I want to buy clothes that fit and flatter me. Hell, I can still wear girls size 16 shirts, dresses!! My stepdaughter and I tried on the same dress (different sizes) in the girls section.

I researched the top 2 PS online in my area. I originally wanted a woman, but I did not like the pictures I saw (only 1) for the one lady PS and the other one, I believed she did my moms reduction years ago. (my mom passed away 8 yrs ago so couldn't verify this for me)


I then rememebered a facebook friend of mine, whom is the girlfriend of my ex sister-in-laws dad. She has been a nurse for a PS for 23 years. I asked her whom she worked for and he was one of the 2 PS I was researching.
I contacted her via facebook. She squeezed me in for a consultation that very week. Now I am scheduled for April 19 for surgery. I am hoping all goes well and I am heeled before my Bahamas trip June 28. I ordered my dresses and pray they fit. I am so excited!!!

One more week!!! I'm very excited!!!

My wedding dress for Vegas needed to be bought in 4 inches around breasts, I wore a push up bra and I had cups sewn into dress. Geez.....I can't wait til I don't need to do this anymore!!!

My Plastic Surgeon's nurse just called me.....they moved my surgery up to 9:30 am instead of 11:15 Friday. Yay!! I get done sooner! Only problem is I didn't ask off work. I start at 5 am & planned to work then go. Now I must leave earlier & drive myself there cause my husband works til 7:30. (My arrival time). He'll come straight there, but now we'll have 2 cars there. Will have to figure something out!! :-(

It's been over 7 hours since my surgery. I feel good, just very swollen. Wrapped nice & tight with an Ace bandage. My husband & I had to drive separately to hospital since we both worked. Took my car home, then after my daughter got home from work she took my husband to get his car. My ice packs were in my car! Ugh!! Went over 2 hours without ice. Big mistake!!!

It's been 3 days since my surgery. I'm so tired but can't sleep. Every way I try is uncomfortable! I also itch real bad underneath my breasts to the side of the incisions. Anyone else get very itchy???

I'm sure this is normal, I believe I read it somewhere. But what is really weird & feels annoying is when I move I feel gurgling & the implant moving in my breast. How long will this last?

It's a week today. I'm out of pain pills so I started taking ibuprofen at night to sleep. I can't stand sleeping on my back any day...but now with heavy breasts it's worse. I can't lay on my side because it hurts when my upper breast pulls down. Is this because I have overs?? I need sleep! I'm glad I took 2 weeks off work. My breasts are still feeling sore. And SO HEAVY!!!! Anyone with overs please tell me when I will feel better! I have great pain tolerance but this......it's kicking my butt!!!

Due to asymmetry & not wanting a lift on just 1 breast, my PS went with 2 different size implants. From the moment I was in recovery to now 8 days later my left breast still is bigger!!! Will this change? Anyone else have a similar case?? Did I really get 2 different sizes? Sure doesn't look like it!! My Mentor ID card from Dr says 375 & 350! And they are over the muscle to avoid a double bubble.

4/29/13--10 days post op......still uneven. I stopped at my work & my boss noticed too. I was wearing a black shirt. Should disguise it more. No matter what I wear I am uneven. :-( Been uneven from the first glance at my new breasts after surgery!!!

16 days post op. Still sore. Going back to work tomorrow. Dreading work!! :-(

Yesterday was 3 weeks post op.....still sore. Bumps in the road hurt! Went back to work this week. My left breast that is larger, is swollen even larger from working.

finally feeling better

I am 4 weeks and 4 days post op. I finally feel better, the bumps in the road no longer make me cringe. I saw my PS today and he was really complimenting me saying I look amazing

4 weeks post op

It feels so good to finally feel better

6 weeks Post op

I still don't like the size difference......BUT what can I do!!!!??? :(

7 weeks post op

It's so nice to have boobs again! No more pain. They are just "there". If I scratch them, yeah, I feel pain. No more morning boob. Maybe minorly sometimes. Can't wait for Bahamas!!!!

8 weeks post op

Feeling better everyday. Working out hard to hit the beaches in Bahamas in 2 more weeks!! Now to find a new bikini top for the 2 new suits I got late last summer.

Almost 6 months post op

I feel great.....still have numbness on nipples. Can't wait to get feeling back! I am adding a Bahamas photo! I felt very sexy & stared at on the beach (full bikini of course)

Over 6 months post op

It's been 6 1/2 months since my surgery. I feel fantastic except for the numbness on lower half of breast & my nipples(areola). I can't wait to get my feeling back! My husband too!! ????

9 months post op

It has been almost 9 months since my surgery. I still have sore nipples. Like if you grab them or it they get scratched. They really hurt. But yet they are numb. My husband was goofing around one day when I was changing & he had a cold can. He put it right up against my nipple & I didn't feel a thing!! But my nipples sure sensed it & got cold & erect! I am wondering if I will ever get my sensation back & not have pain!

9 months PO

It's been 9 months since my augmentation. I still have numbness in my nipples. But yet water beating on them hurts or if I scratch them it hurts!! My husband being goofy put a cold soda can on my nipple & I didn't even flinch!! I sure hope I get feeling back! Or if they stay numb I'd rather have that than the pain. I understand it can take up to a year.
I had surgery on my foot 5 weeks ago. Had bone spurs ground down on my big toe joint & deteriorating cartilage. So she drilled a hole in my cartilage to encourage it to regenerate! I've gained 6 lbs laying with my foot up! I miss walking on my treadmill & working out!! My thighs & belly & getting chunky! My foot surgery was WAY worse then the augmentation!! I was in so much pain!! Not even Percocet helped!! I'm glad it's behind me!!

13 months post op

Look much better. Still wish they were under the muscle, but Dr knows best!

Feeling great!!

I'm so happy I went through with this! I love buying bras now! I love buying clothes! I can fill out my tops again!!
Only things I don't like.....being fake! Wearing a sportsbra to bed every night. The heavy feeling & numb nipples! L

Trying on Sportsbras at Victoria's Secret

My favorite one.....but so expensive! Ugh!

Morning boob pain

It has been a year and a half since my augmentation. For the last month or so, I have been waking up with the worst morning boob pain! Anyone else have this? Or anyone know why? Is something wrong?? Capsular contracture?? They still feel the same to the touch. I've read up on capsular contracture & it doesn't sound like I have it. But geez, do I hurt!!

Possible capsular contracture

My implants don't feel squishy anymore! More like a tight, hard feeling! Both breasts hurt too!!
Opinions!!!

Capsular contracture

I went to see my PS, he confirmed I had capsular contracture. He recommended I try taking Vitamin E for 1 month. If that didn't help, he would prescribe Singulair. Vitamin E didn't help, Singulair did. I feel my left breast has softened but it's still a tighter ball than my right breast. ????

Current pictures of 3 year old implants

I think implants should have been bigger to fill all my skin. U can see a gap between implant & rib. Bummed! You can tell they are fake!!
