I decided to get a breast augmentation because I exercise and run a lot, and that leaves me with hardly anything on my chest. I want to be able to stay active and fit without looking that a little boy. I chose ultra high profile because I didn't want them to be too wide for my body. The only con right now Is that I can't workout for a month, but I know it will be worth it when it is all healed!
Day one Post-op
These are photos from 1 day after my surgery. I wasn't feeling any pain thanks to the medication and ice!
1 week post-op
I had my one week check-up. I got the tape off, and they said everything looked great! I am healing properly, and still not too much pain. I get random sharp pains, mostly in my left breast, but nothing bad enough to affect my working or day-to-day activities. I take ibuprofen and tylenol before bed, I noticed I wake up halfway through the night and my back hurts and my breasts are more sore than normal. The medicine helps.
2 weeks post-op
I have been sleeping better, which helps a lot with recovery I think. I get random little pains, but it's more annoying than anything. I have full feeling in my upper half of both breasts, but the bottom half is still numb. My nipples have some feeling, and hurt when I brush them with my bra going on/off. But at least I'm gaining feeling! Overall my healing is going well. I have a small bump on my left breast that I was told is normal inflammation. I massaged it and caused a bruise, but old bruises are going away. My rib cage feels bruised when I try to stretch, which again I believe is normal. Nothing has been too painful or uncomfortable though.
3 weeks post-op
I am now 3 weeks, I feel really good! I can stretch my arms all the way, and I haven't experienced much discomfort the last few days. My incisions are a little tender when I massage the scar gel on them, but other than that I don't notice them. I am getting excited to be able to exercise and wear normal bras! One more weeks :)
