35 years old
Two breastfed children
Not even sure of previous size...wore sports bras most of the time. "34 AA or Nearly A" was last bra purchased. I have been on realself for the past month. Many posts pictures and reviews have been very helpful.

Backstory : for the past 3 years I have thought about a BA. My goal is to perk the girls up and get the volume I have been missing since my son was born in 2008. Hubby gave me the green light so I made consults in May 2016. Second Dr. I visited really seemed like a perfect match for my desired outcome. At the consult we went forward with pre op visit and set a date for later this month.
I agree with most of you...less time to obsess and research the better :)

Went in at 8 am and walked back to OR around 9:45. We were on the road and home by 12:45. All went smooth. No nausea (thank goodness) I did get an anti nausea patch when I arrived. Anesthesia left me pretty groggy so I just woke up from my nap.

Dr. has wrapped me tightly in ace bandage and I will have that for one full week.
Tightness on my chest very much like being engorged from breastfeeding.
I am allowed to take shower in 24-48 hours but to be careful not to get the strip wet over incisions.
Sleeping upright for 2 weeks will def be the Doozie for me. Several before pics posted today. I will do afters in bandage tomorrow.

Day 1 post op
