5 Week post-op Update
Two weeks post-op
I never thought of myself as an elective plastic...
After consulting 2 PS, I decided that I would get a BA. I knew I wanted silicone. I ended up getting Mentor 375cc high profile, under the muscle on May 18, 2018. My goal was to have more lower pole fullness, like a natural breast and to end up about a C cup size. Frankly, I am so slender I just wanted to look like a woman again. Another consideration is that I am a runner and didn't want to go too big. I initially wanted 265cc but the longer I thought about it, I didn't want to have buyer's remorse. So I did the rice sizers and wore them for a little while attempting to decide the biggest size I would be comfortable with before deciding with certainty.
Today is 5 days post op, I am only taking Tylenol or ibuprofen 3 times a day. I have toddlers, so my activity level is high and though I spent the weekend resting -I can't realistically do that while caring for the babes.
I am excited for the results but I know that it will take several weeks for me to be fully happy about my decision. I did buy some bras yesterday and it felt good to look at larger sizes, try them on (over my sexy surgical bra) and they 'fit' -as best they could with the implants being so high- 34C.
I am 5' 9", 125 lbs
I also have hypothyriodism. I have difficulty keeping weight on due to my medication. My BMI was 18.1 at pre-op. Ugh. That's the lowest I have been since 8th grade.
As for my husband, he didn't want to influence either way. He was supportive of my decision but felt that it was not necessary for his enjoyment. I am excited to be pain free and use them (wink, wink).
I chose Dr Foley because he does more breast cancer reconstruction and I felt that he would do a great job with my goal breasts. He was very professional. Always took his time with me, answered all my questions and his staff and the staff at the surgery center had great things to say about him and his work.
