My motivation was the fact that my breasts were extremely lacking any type of form, they were extremely droppy, which caused my extreme embarrassment even with my husband. My personal goal was to to raise the breast back to a more youthful appearance and also add some volume. The outcome is pretty good. I am still waitting for the complete drop and fluff to happen, but I am exactly 2 months post op. It has not changed my life really, I still wear the same clothes, although I have picked up a couple summer dresses that I would normally not purchase due to the lack of youthful breasts. ;-) My husband shows no interest one way or the other so that area of my life is .... unchanged - you could say.

I wish I knew more about the appearance, feeling, and healing stages prior. It would not have changed my decision but I think I would have been more prepared. I have considered this for several years and now that my children are grown I can afford it. My personal goal is just to fight any scaring that may occur - I take several vitamins and have purchased Skin medica scar gel to help fight any scarring that may happen. Currently feeling slightly depressed - started an anti depressant. I think I thought they would look amazing immediately following surgery, that my husband would show more attention, and that they would drop into place a little quicker. I really don't have any tips - other than read, read, read, all you can to prepare yourself for the days, weeks, months following the procedure.

I go back to the Plastic Surgeon on Monday August 20th, 2012. I have been massaging the breasts, utilizing the breast strap, and heating pad but for the life of me I can not get the left one to drop down. This morning I bend over and looked at it and it look empty and very saggy. The same thing I was embarrassed about to begin with. I know the implant did not rupture because when I stand up right I feel exactly where it is and is full ;-) any way, I am hoping to get some more tips from the doctor on Monday. I want them to drop already. As far as scares, their doing pretty good for it only being a little bit over 2 months since I had it done. I take a hand full of vitamins, eat as much potein as I possibly can and utilize the scar gels. I found the silcone stripes are a pain in the neck. I bought expensive ones but I think i only used them for about 3 or 4 day about a month or so ago.

They are very close to my work place; thus convenience. I found that the beginning process was very confusing and stressful. I would have preferred more details about after surgery look of the breasts, the height of the implants, the need to massage them, basically after care. I am experiencing a period of depression which I understand is normal and I am currently seeking the assistance of my primary care physican. I was not informed about the possibility of this happening to me either. All in all I felt the doctor's office personell were very nice to me. I just wish more time was spent going over the after surgery experience.
