My husband and I have been talking about me having a BA for the past 8 yrs now, and I finally did it! Couldn't be happier! I had the surgery on Aug. 13th. Having 2 kids took it's toll on me. Now I have self confidence back:) I thought that I was a C, but when I went to my PA for my consult, I was informed that I was actually a B. I had 500 cc's of silicone placed behind the muscle on each side. Very happy with the size! Nice and full now:) I was concerned at first that my left side nipple appears to be pointing more down than my right, but my PA told me I still have swelling and a lot of changing left.

Also, if one was that way before, it would still be that way after. Had a lot of bruising afterwards. My PA informed me that staying in the heat was causing me to bruise more. So, I have been staying in the AC more and am looking much better now:) I am still sore. I figure that I will be sore for a bit longer though. I'm one who likes to do things myself, so it's a bit of an adjustment on not lifting heavy things just yet. I have my wonderful hubby to remind me though and help out :) I did a lot of research in looking for a good sports bra to wear. Wasn't real pleased with the champions, so I got on this forum and found someone who really liked the Moving Comfort Fiona. I bought one to try and love it! I'm sure I will have lots of questions for my PA when I return on the 30th for my 3rd post op.

My bruising is almost gone now-yay! Just a couple of spots left :) Still sore, some times more than others. One thing that I realized that I forgot to say is my height and weight. I am 40 years old. Weigh 113 and am 5'3". I had the Natrelle style 15 silicone implants, and it was 533 cc's, not 500 cc's (not quite sure why I had 500 in mind;) I'm anxious to start excersizing again so that I can work on toning my abs:) That will be one question for my PS when I go to my post op Thurs. I think that everything is going well, so hopefully I get the same from my Dr Thurs :) I have to say that I am concerned with the signs of CC, so I will be sure to ask him when I see him on what all to look for.

My appt was changed to today for my 3rd post op. My Dr was really pleased with how well my breasts look, feel and are just coming along great!:). I took a list of questions with me, so I wouldn't forget anything ;). My Dr and his nurse both thought that I had been applying silicone to my incision because it looked so good:). Haven't been applying a thing! My hubby and I both thought that he did an awesome job with the incision! 16 days out and will only look better:). He was very patient in answering my questions and not hurrying me. I was feeling hard lumpy like feelings on the bottom of my breasts and he explained to me that I was feeling the implant due to lack of breast tissue on the underneath part. I was glad to hear that I have been massaging correctly:). Next appt is 4 weeks from now:). I will still need to wear the sports bra for the next 4 weeks, 24 hrs/day. That is fine with me because it gives me more support:). So glad I had this done and very thankful that I found my Dr!!

Over the weekend I noticed that there was a red spot forming around the suture that came through. This morning I noticed puss coming out of the suture area. So glad I have a appt. tomorrow! Talked to the Dr today though and after describing things to him today, he said it sounded like an infection. So, to get a jump start, he called in some antibiotics for me. The receptionist called to confirm my appt for tomorrow, so I decided to discuss what was going on. She immediately let my Dr know, and not much longer, he called. That's one thing I love about him, truly compassionate about his patients!
