Hello everyone! Like so many of you, I have been...

Hello everyone! Like so many of you, I have been religiously researching and spending insane amounts of time on realself in preparation for my surgery. I'm probably on realself a combined minimum of 3 hrs a day reading of all your reviews and catching up on your journey updates! Ive gotten an enormous amount of insight and I feel like I know some of you so well already! Now it's time to shares story!
I'm 24 yrs old. Until the age of 20, I was always "skinny" with naturally DD boobs. During a bad relationship/ horrid breakup, I managed to gain nearly 50 lbs! I eventually decided to make a change and lose weight. With diligent dieting and exercise, I've lost 45 lbs but have been left with stubborn fat in my midsection that will not go away no matter how hard I work!
I had my breast aug/ lipo this past Tuesday. It's time to have the body I've worked so hArd for (even if I have to buy it lol).
Any suggestions from anyone else who's had the same combo of procedures? I'll also be setting up another profile for my breast implant journey.
Thanks in advance! Pictures to follow shortly!

Day 1 post op pics

Here are pics from the day after surgery. Extremely swollen and bloated but still noticing an improvement in shape!

Feeling bigger than ever!!!

Today makes 1 week since my surgery and my swelling is insane! I know it's part of the recovery and it was expected, but it's still really discouraging! I picked up some high potency bromelain today and more arnica so I'm hoping it will help some. Although my shape is improved, I look bigger than before surgery and nothing fits! As for pain, I'm just really tender throughout the midsection but it's tolerable. I'm just extremely tired and need a couple power naps throughout the day. I've also been massaging the areas. My 2 week post op appt is next Tuesday so I'm hoping he can tell me how much of my fat is actually fat and how much is fluid.
Tomorrow is my first day back to work and I'm thinking I should be fine aside from falling asleep every 5 min! I hope all is well with everyone!!! Here are some pics from this morning!
