"Gym rat - 5'9", 149lb, Mom of 4. Inspira TSX Ultra full 800s ..." - Alberta

Hi everyone :-) BA/BL long, long, long overdue ...

Hi everyone :-) BA/BL long, long, long overdue .... There's been a few bumps along the way, but now I'm finally getting it done. A few decades of hitting the weights, dieting and breast feeding 4 kids definitely didn't do me any favors in the cleavage department... lol.
Will be booking my surgery this month, so I'm hoping to have my surgery in June or July... fingers crossed!!!
5'9"
154lb ... (need to drop a few pounds to lean out by my surgery date.... I'm not fat... I'm in a bulking phase...lol.... gym joke for those of you who train)
rib cage 36" (wearing a size 38-40 with a lot of padding and hook extender to accommodate a bit of muscle) waiting for the consult to see what my BWD is and to pick a size.

I'm so grateful to all of you who have shared your experiences and photos for the benefit of the group. You've inspired me to join in.... SO, a big THANK YOU!!! to all of you... :-D

I should have posted this reply as an update/expansion...lol

Despite sounding pedestrian; my original attitude has always been "Go big or Go home!!!" ... MY translation of that was 650 to 700cc... and then I compared a lot of work by Dr. Pousti out CA and Dr Krau in FL who have done some beautiful work. When I started looking a before and after Photos of women with similar before photos and stats... I started thinking I'd need 800+ cc to get nice full breasts that sit close together and not under my armpits with such a large gap in between, you could fly a plane between them and not scrape the wings..lol. Of course, more research showed how its not just size of the implant but projection of the implant, body structure and skill of the surgeon.. etc....
Then I discovered Realself and have been reading so many wonderful women's experiences on this site. The more I've read about the various issues with with larger implants and have seen so many poor women suffer with multiple surgeries- the more I started re-evaluating my ultimate goals and wants.
Basically the same process I'm sure everyone as gone through.
I have really let go of the "cc" envy and really focused on the proportions and shape I want to achieve. A learning process for sure.
I have to keep reminding myself, I'm not 25 anymore.. so do I really want the same size of chest as I once did..(so many, many, many years ago... hahaha)... which is when I finished nursing my 4th baby and originally decided to get implants...
Now even though it's been a struggle (due to car accident almost a decade ago); I've made a real attempt to get back to my first love: bodybuilding. I've got back some of the muscle I used to have pre-babies.
So, the question is: Do I really want implants on the larger size that could just make me look blocky, seems to be a fine line for me how big is too big and could it damage the integrity of what little tissue I have left etc... I still love the look ...just not sure if my head's in the same place as it was when I first went down this road. (I will have to get around to posting some photos so you'll know what I mean.)
Back to present day: I haven't even been able to train for the past 8 months except for maybe 5 or 6 trips to the gym in total and I measure 48inches/122.5cm around for my shoulder circumference. I think it was over 50/51 inches/130cm last summer and I was 8lbs leaner than I am now but had been training consistently. More muscle density makes me question if I'll just look like a block and top heavy.. broad shoulders big implants and 35-36" hips ... thus my dilemma.
Thanks again...to everyone here at Realself for being so inviting and helpful. :-D

I have a sizing appointment and surgery date....

I finally decided on surgeons and I'm scheduled for a sizing appointment for April 12th and a tentative date for surgery fro June 6th... 2 months tomorrow as long as everything goes well at the pre-op checkup scheduled for the 20th. It's all falling into place and I'll be able to let the excitement flow full reign once I get he results from the pre-op. I'm conservatively joyous.. for now..... the batsh*t crazy excitement should hit me once I get the thumbs up for the GP and anesthesiologist.... lol
Hope everyone is having a great day!! xo

"hopeful handfuls" photos

I wish it was me...lol..... but no... just what my best case scenario for implants would be....

Me with a tan and a very padded top...

My sizing appointment went wayyyyyyyy better than I presumed it would.......

So I tried posting an update a couple of hours ago and our beloved RS site deleted it instead... I assume the internet was protecting you all from the long-winded diatribe I had previously typed. So this will be the shorter version....
Being in Canada, I've found it rather challenging to find a doctor who would use larger implants. I began this journey many many years ago and had a number of stumbling blocks which I won't bore you with except this one.
About a decade ago, I had a referral. .. a friend of a friend who's surgeon accommodated ladies with larger implants. He was from a different city but I was willing to go the distance to get my dream boobs. I had an initial consult via internet and phone and his suggestion was to send in photos to be assessed and whole I was waiting to get in for a one on one consult, I should go buy a bra the cup size I was hoping to be and measure water and pour it into zip-lock sandwich bags and increase the amount of water until I felt I was close to my desired breast size and record the amount of water I used. Then buy enough padding to fill the bra and get used to wearing it around to be sure of the size. So I did. However, when I called back to the office to book a one on one with the surgeon a few weeks later, I was informed that he would be retiring before I could get in .but I could chose to have the surgery done by a new associate. I asked to see photos of the new surgeons work for a BA/BL ......lets just say I ended up NOT choosing that surgeon. Shortly after I was in an accident and my dreams of new breasts was put on hold..... Little did I know those dreams would be put on hold for almost a decade. So here I currently sit... still in padded bras from hell.... but the upside is at least i found a surgeon. Lol Never in a million years would I have thought I'd have to wait a decade in padded bras... I know I could have thown the padded bras away and gone back to being flat chested. ..but I just couldn't bring myself to do it....
Jump forward to April 12th 2016. I finally had a sizing appointment and had talked myself out of getting the dream implants of ..well... by this time it was 750cc ultra high profile. I was trying to be practical and reasonable and I reasoned with myself... anything will be better than nothing and i was just hoping I could talk this doctor into giving me around 500cc at best.
You need to remember, I live in Canada .... Canadians are known for igloos, dog sleds and our extreme politeness... plastic surgeons who openly talk about 800cc impants is unheard to me... lol....
Anyway, I've read countless reviews about Dr. Chong, raving about his skill and how professional and thorough he is. I researched till th cows came home but couldn't find any profiles or photos of women who have large implants... but he work is fantastic. So I figured fantastic 450 or 475cc implants would be better than nothing at all.
I had an open mind when I went in, fingers crossed I could get anything over 475cc. He was very thorough and polite, took my measurements and asked me some questions and explained a number of things and then asked what my expectations were. I felt embarrassed to say the cc number...as i was trying to keep an open mind..I just said I want to go as large as I possibly can..within reason and what my body can accommodate. He just politely smiled and said lets start you off with some implant sizes so you can see how they an look on and we can go from there. He left 4 sizes out for me to try and left the room. His assistant brought in my significant other and I'm looking at the implant sizes: 325, 350, 375, 400.... hmmmm ... I was dissatisfied to day the least, but I grabbed the 400's and gave them a try... nope..not even close to what I had before kids.... of course I grabbed the 325s pit them together and put them in my sports bra... lol... Now...we're getting somewhere.... i did try the 375s together as well.... even better..lol ...my significant other was just watching and laughing a little...he knows me so well... lol ... i felt like a naughty child waiting for the principal to come in and scold me.. loI. So I pull the implants out of my top and and plunk them down on the exam table and put back in the 400s back in my top just as the surgeon knocked and came in and asked what I thought. I am not a shy person but I was having a difficult time explaining this is not at all what I want. I finally mentioned i was larger before kids and this isn't even close to what I want...he said not a problem, turns to a chest of drawers which were full of implants and he grabs 450s and the 475s sets them down and I said...is there any way my body can accommodate something larger... he just smiled at me and sat down and proceeded with the increased risk of complications speech. He was very thorough and patient with me, never made me feel rushed and allowed me to ask as many questions concerns as I needed even though he had a waiting room full of women waiting. Then he got up and went and retrieved the 610cc and 650cc. I tried those and again I mentioned with my frame and being so flat, even the 650s dont look overly large on me... maybe a typical C cup size. Then I asked at what size does the complications risk go up? Dont quote me but I believe he said around the 400 or 450-ish size. Then I asked ..so the risks keep rising as you go up in size and he said "No, there's no real way of calculating the risk.. due to all the factors. Some women just have problems and some don't. There's no way to know before hand." So we talked a bit longer and I decided on the TSX 750 Xtra Full profile. I asked again if that implant will fit and he double checked his measurements and said yes. Then I asked how much of the implant will I lose with it under the muscle and he laughed and said "I usually tell women about 50 to 100cc but I didn't want to tempt you" ..we all laughed and..long story..made even longer...hahaha ..
I'm going with the Inspira TSX 800 Xtra Full Implants!!!! I'm getting my dream breasts!!!!!
NOW I'M EXCITED!!!!!! LOL
Thanks for the time you wasted reading this.. haha. xoxo

I cleared hurdle number 2..... yeay!!

So... I just heard back from Michelle, the office manager at Dr. Chong's office..my PS. I've been cleared for surgery by the anesthesiologists at the Alberta Surgical Center... thank goodness! Because of the brain issue.. I was a little concerned I may not be approved for surgery at a clinical center and bw reroured to have surgery in a hospital setting... so thank goodness that hurdle is cleared!! ... Now I just have to pass hurdle number 3- the pre-op checkup tomorrow and June 6th is a definite go!!!! I'm sure it will go smoothly... positive thoughts...positive outcome!! ..right?? =)

For anyone looking for an amazing team, I must say Dr. Feng Chong and his office staff are absolutely amazing!!! Every single one of them has been more than helpful, super supportive and amazingly patient. I know I'm in the BEST posible care and can't wait to go under the knife!!! Lol ... From what I hear, the group at the Alberta surgical center are all stellar as well!!! Talk about synchronicity! I'm truly blessed and ever so grateful to have everything just falling into place so wonderfully!!! Can't Wait to clear hurdle no.3 tomorrow.... I'll keep y'all posted!!!. ..Fingers crossed everyone.... hahaha.....

Hurdle number 3....

Hello Ladies!! Talk about living a blessed life!! =) I went to my GP for the pre-op checkup and great news... I'm offically cleared for surgery! JUNE 6TH is a GO!!!! Yippeeeeeeee. Lol. I wasn't overly concerned but there was a little voice nagging me in the back of my mind...only because I had spoken with the coordinator of another out-of-province surgeon. She beoughgvto my attention that surgery out of province with my history could be an issue. I'm so glad she did; because I was aware of it I was able to be proactive and address it ahead of time to insure there were no stumbling blocks on "D"day... or should I say- a hopeful "DD" day... lol. I'd love to send a huge Thanks with big hugs to everyone who has been sending me so mucj support and encouragement! !!!! It's super appreciated and I'm ever so grateful for you all!!! Now... I just have count down from 46..... to June 6th... ;-) ttys XO....

CC obsession? ...shouldn't we all be obsessed with the proportionate esthetics rather than a number?......

I was just about to post this as a reply to dear sweet Dianamarie083... the topic was in regards to the stigma of larger implants.
There definitely seems to be an obsession with the number of CCs more so than an obsession with the esthetically pleasing and balanced appearance of each individual . It’s one thing to be 5ft tall and 100lbs with a ribcage of 26inches... throw some 400-450s in there and she's looking fabulously full and luscious ....and I think preportionately the same to the 5'8 to 5'10 whos 150lbs with a ribcage measurement of 34 or 35" ribcage who has 700 to 800cc. Strange how the 450s seem to be socially acceptable number... yet... the higher number scares people and in some instances creates ridicule when it's the same look PROPORTIONATELY .. rather sad if you ask me.... Ok.... we need to rally the taller and broader ones who want the same look as those cute little petite women who can rock a 450 plant... get some photos and post them side by side.... I'm copyrighting this information. ..lol. thanks ladies in advance!! ... lol We just have to stick together...lol. and this post is in NO WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM any type of negative projection towards all the beautiful petite women out there ... we larger framed women are just in propotionate boob envy of you all who can rock the smaller implants and look amazing... we just want the same opportunities and profile as you... =D Xoxo

Pre-op Reconnaissance. ...

First of all, anther round of " Thanks" to all the harbingers who have bleesedly warned those of us still waiting for surgery, about the mighty drawbacks of living in the surgical bra 24/7 post-op. .. namelt server back pain/spasms. Your numerous posts of pain and suffering have inspired me to do a little surgical bra recon. This past week I had an "a-ha" moment and decide to beat the back spasm monster head on and try something experimental. I already have back issues that cause spasming in the T9 to T11 vertebrae. ... luckily right wear my bra strap sits and triggers the spasms.... especially whenever I buy a new bra, purse etc.... yippeee, right? Lol. All of your insightful comments inspired me to call the ps' office and order a surgical bra 6 weks pre-op so I could begin wearing it a few hours a day and build up to wearing it 24/7 by the time June 6th comes... my surgery date. I just received the Marena surgical bra yesterday, took it out of the package and popped it on. First off.... I admit... I am sensitive to chemicals and smells and the 1st thing I noticed was the chemical odor ...obviously since they use it immediately after surgery I'm assuming it has something to do with keeping it relatively. ... uhhh...clean or ..whatever... lol Oh well... I thought... I'll wash it tonight... but I might as well get used to it since they will be putting me in a new one post-op. The material is soft but I was surprised at a few sharp edges along the hook closure not horrible but given I would be out of surgery and everything will hurt... just another annoyance I'm sure. Iwill say in the bra's defense... based on my measurements I gave the office staff and my odd build due to more back and pec muscle; I had the shoulder straps on the loosest hook as well as the front closure. This may attest to why it was a bit sratchy, but that was adated within an hour or 2. I wore it for abouut 9 hours and it did become more comfortable as the day went on but I was glad to get it off when I did. My back was aching and is still aching currently and I have yet to done the lovely garment back on. No it's not sexy... lol ... but it will definitely do the job intended and that's what's most important. I am definitely glad I have decided to proceed with this pre-op "prep". If I can reduce some of my discomfort post-op, then mission accomplished!! I will absolutely have to work my way up to 24/7. I'll keep you posted... and it will be interesting to see if it makes any difference post-op.... RECON ON: T minus 43 days, 18 hours and counting... ahhahaaha

Pre-op Recon correction.....

You'd think I'd be more careful with proof reading... I apologize for the typos.. .. "Namely severe back pain".... and I'm sure there are others. ..... in my defense. ... this is a free post you're reading... and you know what "THEY " say about that... " You get what you pay for" ..... LOL

Paid in full...

Hi everyone... long time no chat..... =)) It's been rather boring lately, just playing games the waiting game game. As of this post, I'm down to 15 days, 12 hrs and 58 minutes.... and .... YES... I do have a counter on my phone...lol.....On Friday I took the bullet and the surgery is officially paid in full.... lol .... Some not so great news.... A little over a week ago I found out I had to get some serious dental work done due to a jaw infection... it's done- hurts like the dickens but according to the dentist, I'll be fine for surgery. Luckily it was 3 weeks before surgery so better I had it taken care of before, rather than risk complications post-op. I still have to go for the pre-op blood work on Monday, so hopefully that will go well. ..fingers crossed!.... we'll chat Monday or Tuesday =) xo

54 hours and counting..... before I go under the knife..... lol

Hello all my RS friends =)) ... I've been rather M.I.A. this last while. It turns out, healing from the dental procedure was more intensive than expected so it's been a but more challenging trying to stay on track diet-wise while being in pain and not being able to eat my usual food choices and only being able to eat soft food has taken its toll on my waistline... and let's face it..... the overall body fat percentages. .. hahaha .........NOW......... On to bigger and better things ....... 54 hours until I'm under the knife for some much needed remodeling!!! Oddly enough I'm not at all nervous. ... just immensely EXCITED !!!!!! Can't wait to be on the healing side of things and enjoy having breasts again.... big breasts that is! ;-) A big thanks to everyone who has been so supportive and informative. I'll check in on Surgery Day as soon as I'm able... take care and .... as they used to say decades ago..... see ya on the flip side.... hahahaha XO

I'll respond to all your comments as soon as I'm able..... You can thank MahoganyB for this post....as I was feeling guilty for not replying to everyone's comments before I should write an update...and she told me to just send a quick blurb...

POD 1 and before photos

Edmonton case the spots on the mirror...lol..... whoops... obviously missed a few spots...

... SHOULD SAY...EXCUSE the spots on the mirror.... lol

...Obviously my phone decided to edit that last post.. note to self: "Remove auto spellcheck from phone"......

POD2 ... T-rex arms are lengthening disturbing humor returns... lol ......

Hello my dear lovelies =)) ..... whewwwww ..... replying to everyone's comments yesterday took all of my strength from my T-rex arms and sky rocketed the incision pain.... so odd. Thanks to everyone who sent well wishes and happy thoughts my way... greatly appreciated! !!!! Love and hugs to you all!!!!!!! It was such an amazing feeling and awonderful blessing to have so many of you rooting for me and sending comforting words.... xoxoxoxo I love you all !!!!! A huge thanks!!!!! Xoxo =D ... Now on to the boring stuff....... ;-) The only pain I've had is when I try to walk with my arms hanging down normally or when I try typing.????? WTF is thst about??? Lololol... Those 2 activities cause the incisions around the areola complex to feel as if they're on fire and actually caused the left side to spot a wee bit yesterday at the 24hr post-op apt.... nothing substantial but also something I want to avoid. Other than that it's understandable that I can feel the 4 extra pounds sitting under my pecs..... which i must admit ... I'm absolutely LOVING!!!!!!.... it's great to have boobs...but I also have to admit I love the feeling of lifting weights just as much! !!!.... and Thank goodness For that. .. now I can finally do mini AB (Abdominal) exercises each and every time I move and since the weight is still under the mandatory 10 lb limit so the doc won't give me crap.... win/ win!!!! Hahahahahahahaha. .... I laugh... but I was actually thinking about that very thing and got excited just after surgery.... hahahaha..... I actually LMAO... in recovery..... needless to say I got a few weird looks from the delightful nurse who must have thought I was just loopy from the morphine..... HEY- you can take the woman outta the gym... but not the gym outta the woman... hahaha... Soooooo true!!! OK.... I really wasn't sure if everyone wanted to read another story of the Sx day....... so I wasn't sure I should even recap it.... However, I'm going to have to cut this short as the incisions are warning me to stop flexing the pecs... haha... thanks again to everyone... xoxoxo ...tune in tomorrow. ............ lol

POD2 photos...

Whoops.. forgot the photos And to say the Shower IS definitely as wonderful as everyone says.... lololol.... ouch....ouch... must stop typing and laughing .....lol TTYT

POD7..... here are some photos.....BLASTED PHONE DUMPED MY REVIRW. ..

POD7 update... if I can remember what I previously typed ...

Hi everyone...... let's try this again.... lol. I should know better than not to save the written word before posting.... yet I forgot ...again! uhhhhhhh. ..lol Back to the topic at hand.... I was doing fantastically.... by Friday I was pain free, just the usual pec pressure...completely understandable with 800cc jammed under the muscle... lol Saturday morning I woke up feeling amazingly well... better than I have in literally months!! ... You know where this is going, dont'cha .. hahahah...YUP..... I over did it. What's weird is.. I really wasn't moving around too much an didn't pull anything or hurt myself.... after a couple hours of moving around and spending some time with my 2 granddaughters. ... I was just tired so I went back to bed to rest. ... I was laying around watch vacation episodes of a cheesy TV show.... and finally fell asleep mid afternoon. I woke up a couple hours later feeling like Ali had been speed baggin' my chest HOLY CRAP.(Oh.... too soon? Lol. ... meant as light-hearted humor... no disrespect intended). ... The entire pec muscle on each side was in constant muscle spams. That combined wit the pain... it was pretty insane! I started poopin' painkillers like they were skittles... and if I hadn't resorted back to full-mode T-rex again- I would have been speed baggin' my own face for stupidly hurting myself and creating such a nasty set back!!!! Needless to say, I've spent the past 2 days recouping. ...and I'm almost back to where I was last Friday. .POD4 only with more intense muscle spasms still.... so hopefully I will wake up tomorrow back on track! =) ..fingers crossed... and many many positive affirmations repeated. .. LOL... The really kicker is that POD1 AND POD2 I had woken up with the dreaded nasty morning boob... so in the afternoon of POD2 I began taking all of my supplements again and you wouldn't believe it... but when I woke up POD3 AND POD4 I had ABSOLUTELY NO MORNING BOOB!!!!! Absolutely amazing! .... even with the setbacks I still don't have severe morning boob.... hopefully I'll have the inflammation back in check by morning! ..I think that's about it..... TTYL. Xoxo =D

Hi everyone =)) slow but steady progress . I've been super busy. Either recouping or out galavanting around...as my grandmother would have said... haha... I'll post more photos and a proper update as soon as I can... lots of love and thanks to everyone whose been following and offering support xoxo luv ya .... ...lol

I'm so thrilled and blessed....

I honestly couldn't have wished for such amazing progress so far. I have had a 2 week period of adjustment with the old back injury causing nasty muscle spasms..but nothing rest, relaxation and some trusty OTC muscle relaxers haven't been able to resolve. What I AM so thrilled about is how will my incisions are healing thus far. My ps had placed surgical tape over the incisions during surgery which I was told would stay on approx. 3 weeks and then I'm to continue using 3M tape in the incisions right up until my 8 wk checkup. So PO 18 ... yesterday ... some of the original tape had come loose during my beloved shower so with my trusty phone camera, my artist's lamp and some hyper flexing... lol ... I was able to take a couple of photos of the lower portion of the anchor scar before retyping. OMG .... I was prepared for a scabby purple/reddish lumpy scar .... hey.. it's only 18 days.... but holy smokes was I thrilled when I saw the photos... at first I thought my camera must have been blurry and the lighting was bad.. lol.... so of course I called I'm my lovely man assistant..my S.O. who has been an absolute sweetheart ... fussing and jumping at all hours for me.... I'm lucky and blessed for sure... but I digress .. hahaha.... anyway... I whipped out a mirror, some of my trusty antiseptic healing sprayor 'potion' as my S.O. calls it..haha... .. and disinfected my sizzors and hands with the Batadine iodine im still using for washing the incisions before cutting away the old tape and replacing it. Thank you Dr. Chong.. great job on the incisions!!! ... lol

POD28 INSPIRA Ultra full 800cc .... So I completely forgot to update a week three..... whoops.....

Wow... 4 weeks post-op today. The time does fly by .... upon reflection.... as apposed to the moments in discomfort/suffering... LOL. I still have tape on the incisions and have been advised to keep it on until my 8wk checkup which is scheduled for August 9th. I must say, it's definitely true... the larger the implant- the longer the recovery period. Especially since the implants are under the muscle and I had a lift. I do have so much more mobility but I am still experiencing some tightness and random muscle aches as I feel the implants slowly moving downward... an odd feeling to say the least. Do I love them even though they are still in their awkward adolescent goofy looking boob stage?... HELL YEAH!!!!!!! =)) Hahahahahahahaha The implants are still quite high; the right is the slower of the 2 to drop and is on a slower healing curve... I do believe the right one did require more work so it needs a little more TLC.... or... perhaps it's just shy and prefers to fallow in the footsteps on the left.... after all I AM left-handed after all... hahahaha I do still fetch the sensation of that intense feeling when you're engorged and REALLY need the little one to nurse... lol... but over all things have really improved.... of course I'm impatient to see the final result and habe them drop down out of my throat... lol .... ok.... they aren't that high.... but they certainly have a ways to go.... breathe in- breathe out - breathe in - breathe out ....... right.... patience is a virtue... lol...
On the upside.... if they're still too high..then they haven't bottomed out either so it's alllllll good!!! Lol.... I actually bought a cheap little bikini top.. just to feel what it's lie to wear a random triangle top after 23 yrs of not being able to... feels pretty dam good if I do say so myself!!!Lol.... here's a couple photos.... I already have from this past week.....
I'm so excited to have some amazing cleavage considering they are still so high... YEAY!!!! sooo thrilled for that!! Haha Now if only I could fetch VA k in the gym and literally work my ass and belly off... hahahahaha... soon.... I have a new countdown ticker.... for the 1st day back at the gym post-op!!!!!
... hope you're all doing well and living life to it's fullest!!!!! Xo. Oh.. and to all my American friends HAPPY 4Tth OF JULY!!! and to my Canadian comrades ... Happy belated Canada Day!!! Xoxo. =D

29 Days post-op photos...

They are still very high but making progress... I am actually able to semi -lex the upper pec and move my implants... lol.... perhaps that will help them drop... lol... oh..here's that bikini top is mentioned in yesterday's update...

HI there everyone =)) ... I was just reading and update by another RS friend and it suddenly dawned on me... hey.. it's July 6th ... as in a month from June 6th.... only the day I had been obsessing about for 2 months ...hahah so I thought I'd share some photos of the incisions as this was the first day I've had all the tape off at one time.... not perfect but they've certainly come a long way from the day of the remodel... lol ....

Surgeon Recommended Silicone Gel Sheets...

Hi ... it's been awhile =) .... the past 3 weeks has veen quite busy. I've noticed some changes.. mostly with softness and movement; my right is still much slower to drop than the left but thst one has had more work done to it from the lift. I'll know more when I go back to my ps in 12 days =) .... Here's the product recommended by my PS since I have such sensitive skin and I'm allergic to the standard tape. I'll try and post updstes as to how well it works.

Silicone Sheet Instructions.....

I just started using the Silicone sheets on Thursday, July 28th( yesterday in real time) so time will tell if they work and/or if I have an allergic reaction ton to this as well since I'm apparently allergic to the adhesive in all medical tapes thus far. =)
I've read conflicting instructions.. some saying it needs to be worn 24/7 right away; other's saying wear it 12hrs on 12hrs off and work your way up to 24/7 because it may cause skin irritation. I'm almost at the point where, if it does cause skin irritation I may just call it quits and hope for the best.. lol... the sheets are 5 for $85. Or $23 a sheet. And one sheet just covers my incisions and only lasts for maybe a week. I'm assuming because of the heat, one of the pieces of sheeting has come loose and had to be removed.... it lasted a cool 24hrs..... Needless to say an expensive venture if I'm supposed to use it for at least 12 weeks or more.... hahaha....
So far... so good... at least the incisions aren't itchy and burning....... To Be Cont'd.......

WOW.... 11 WPO .....

I have been the worst procrastinator! I've been busy with summer and there hasn't been much change... the left has definitely D&F somewhat... but the right side which has had much more work is still taking its own sweet time as to be expected.
They are certainly softer and even bounce when I walk down the stairs... but I do admit to just wanting get them to be even.. I know... I know... patience with... it's what I tell everyone else.. hahah... but I do love them even en in their awkward 'adolescent' phase hahaha
I have so many photos I need to go through to find a few to post.. but as I'm outside enjoying the last few days of warm weather... thought u better take a photo or 2 and just post it already... lol
