Surgery day February 23, 2012 and I didn’t feel nerves until I was being wheeled back into the surgical suite. Dr. Klink and his entire staff were awesome at easing my mind before the procedure. He reiterated everything we had discussed to ensure we were still on the same page with my expectations, which was helpful. He is very meticulous in his procedures. He asked all the right questions and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed decision about my procedures. We discussed that I wanted a full C/small D for my breast augmentation (BA) and semi aggressive slim-lipo of the thigh and flank areas. So deep breath, a short prayer, and out I went :-)
Post-Surgery Night 1
The liposuction was by far more painful than the BA. Before being discharged, Dr. Klink's staff gave me pain meds and my wonderful, supportive husband kept me on my med schedule throughout the night. My pain was under control fairly quickly. I was able to get a good nights sleep.
Woke up feeling pretty good. Not really any pain at all in my thighs or flank area surprisingly. Mostly soreness at the incision sites. My breasts are sore and tight. I had my first follow up this morning and Dr. Klink seemed impressed with everything so far. My breasts are riding really high right now, but that’s to be expected. Dr. Klink ensured me if it persisted he could fix it without a problem. Additionally, I found out that my implants are 575cc!! WOW! I was a small 36B before and I told him I wanted a full C/small D and showed him pictures. He estimated I would need approximately 400 – 450 cc’s to accomplish that look; but I turned out to need a bit more once he got in. I received Round Silicone Gel Mentor Moderate Plus 575cc’s on both sides and I absolutely love them. It’ looks exactly the size I wanted. It’ will be perfect once they drop and the swelling goes down. He explained that I had a wider space between my breast a needed a little larger implant to get the ideal cleavage. I am a curvy 165lbs standing about 67 inches. I think I’ll have a nice, enhanced hourglass figure. I also found out he removed a total of 1.6 liters of fat from my thighs and flank area.
I‘m not allowed to take the compression garment off until tomorrow to shower so I’ll see if I see any changes then. I don’t expect the changes to be that drastic; but my final result should be smooth and nice. At this point my biggest concern is how high my breast are riding. I’ll be sure to post before and after pictures once I can take my compression garment off.
