Well...I've not posted a ton on here, but thought...
Well...I've not posted a ton on here, but thought I'd put it out there...my surgery is tomorrow and I'm sooo anxious!
I used to have beautiful breasts, pre breastfeeding three babes. It is sooo worth it! Don't get me wrong, my children are my everything - but- what used to be a full gorgeous symmetrical pair of D breasts...is now a sad deflated barely A and AA asymmetrical pair. :( it's to the point I'm embarrassed to get naked in front of my husband. That's when I realized its time to do something, as no woman should feel ashamed of their body in front of their husband!
So....here we go! I am still torn on size though. 450? 475? Or 500...?!?! Ugh! I'm getting high profile mentor silicone...just not settled on size. Ideas? I'm 5'6" 109 pounds, 27 inch ribcage..., active, busy with three young children, age five and under. I dance just not as much as I did before babies :) (ballet, ballroom, Latin) And I'd love to have more babies.
I'll let everyone know how it goes in the morning! Praying all goes smoothly!
Hello pain! Hello new breasts! :D

Day of treatment
Wow! I've been out most of the day- anesthesia hits me hard. But boy I'm in pain! Especially under my armpit, kinda on the sides, I think it's muscle pain. I went a little bigger than ps recommended- by 25ccs...we chose 375L 450 R. From what I can see the look amazing already!! Swollen, yes, painful...definitely. But great! :)
6dpo...LOVE my result!!
Well still hurting, getting spasms, and numb. So, still on all meds and needing full time help with the children (obviuosly) But zero bruising at all actually, my ps is the BEST! My next po is Tuesday.
Two weeks post op...it's gone by fast!
Can't believe it's two weeks already! I am having a difficult day. Most days I feel great about my result. Today I feel discouraged. :( I feel like they are till uneven and that makes me sad. One main reason I got implants was to make them even and symmetric again! Oh we'll, time will tell, my ps says be patient...and I'm the least patient person I know! Ugh! My small side pre surgery is now my large side...he used a larger implant (obviously) because I had like no breast tissue. My L side is dropping faster...
Patience is a virtue....!
Oh I forgot...
Size...at my check on Tuesday he said my swelling is gone and they will continue settling and changing shape, but the size should remain pretty much the same, and he gave me the go ahead to bra shop! Right now I'm wearing my old 34DDs from when I was pregnant with my second baby. They are too big around but the cups fit. So...I'm thinking I will need 32 DDD!!! Yay! Crazy! They look better in a bra than they do naked right now... :) I started my massages, which hurt like the dickens, on my R ...and dr c told me that if the R side hasn't dropped in a month I will wear a bandage across the top of my breasts to force it down. We shall see what we see as time passes. Ugh I hate waiting! My hubby already loves them...that's good ;) and my clothes do fit sooo much better!
Got fitted...holy 32DDDs!!!!
In VS bras I'm 32DDD! :) yay! Hope they don't get smaller, my ps says they won't. That's why he ok'd me for bra shopping. Super super excited! Loving my result, they're getting better by the day! They are super soft and squishy now.
Very soft and squishy now, measuring a32G at Soma. My VS 32DDDs some are too small in the cup and a bit big around, I have only 27 inch ribcage. So...thinking of ordering from Linda's online. That's a great site, or Her Room. I wore my 30H Alegro bra the other day that I wore when I breastfed, and it fit great! I'll have to post pics of it. Have a lovely afternoon ladies! :)
Can't believe it's already two months!
And I'm loving them more each day! I'm definitely a 32DDD...but as they are 'fluffing' I'm starting to spill out, so...may need a cup size bigger. My L breast was my larger and I have more breast tissue there, so it's my smaller implant. My nipple is slightly lower on that side, but it always has been and DrC and I decided it wasn't a big enough problem to necessitate additional procedures at this time. I'm totally fine with it. And in bras and clothes they look exactly the same size, so...bottom line- I'm thrilled with the 'new' me! :D I'm more comfortable in my skin and happy and confident with my body than I have been in years.
