Great experience and no regrets about going...
Great experience and no regrets about going thorough with it. I was conflicted about whether to go even bigger- after a lot of research I went in thinking I would go with 475-500cc but after seeeing myself on the 3D vectre virtual images, I decided to go with 430cc UH silicone because it was more proportionate with my petite frame. The incisions are under my breasts and the implant was placed submuscular. The best part was no general anesthesia which was what I feared the most, atleast the after effects. I went under with conscious sedation, don't get tripped up by the name, I didn't feel or remember a thing:) Ican't wait until the bandage can come off and my muscles relax to see the final end result!
Out at Thai restaurant immedietly after surgery
I woke up from surgery without any pain and very hungry. I was craving Pho so we went to a nearby Thai restaurant. This was us eating out after we left the operating suite.
Wishing I went bigger ...
The tales about boob greed are true. I'm really wishing I had gone bigger ... 475-500cc. Since I am petite, the PS recommended no more than 450cc. The decision was entirely up to me and I opted for 430 while still having doubts in my mind, wondering if I will regret not going bigger. I realize 430cc and 450cc is such a tiny difference, maybe 2 tbs. I think it may have provided me the reassurance I need knowing that had gone on the highest end of the recommended amount. But in reality the bigger part of me wishes I went ahead with my original plan: "go big or go home" with 475-500cc. You don't realize you want porn star boobs until after you get a BA. So for any of the ladies who are trying to decide between two sizes, especially if it's not a big difference just go with the bigger option for peace of mind and less regretting later.
2 weeks post op update
It's been 15 days since my BA and things are looking and feeling pretty darn good. I am very active so it's easy to get carried away with household chores and yard work and forget the fact that it's only been two weeks since my BA. Guess that means I'm feeling good and they are recovering well! The only discomfort is morning boob but that is minimal considering the surgery I had. My boobs are still tight but I can now massage them and they seem to have dropped slightly. I haven't removed my steri strips yet but the one under the right boob is starting to curl so I ordered silicone tape on Amazon prime today to replace it with and help minimize the appearance of scarring- I have yet to see what those look like! I had my surgery out of state so I haven't gone back for any post surgery consults. I've been so grateful for this site to help me know if things are on track and to see what is ahead. I still have regrets about not going bigger even though they look proportional for my body size and the PS did a great job. I think it has a lot to do with what my goals were before I had the BA. I didn't want them to look too fake but also not completely natural looking either- just nice big hot looking boobies! Also some of my clothes look better with the new girls while others look the same as before I had my BA. I wish they were big enough that I wouldn't have to buy underwire padded bras to MAKE the shirt look great- does that even make sense? I've posted a few updates pics:)
I tried on some of my old bikinis today, which are all smalls. Some are way too small and will have to go while others might actually work! I have yet to get sized to figure out my bra size which I'll probably do at 1-2 months post op. I've attached some bikini photos:)
