I decided to go with Dr.Quinn in leawood, ks. I had my second consultation with him on Thursday the 20. His whole staff is super friendly. And when he came into the room to speak with me I was instantly comfortable. I've decided on 475cc natrelle Silicone implants. I'm very excited to feel like a hot mom!
last pre op app
so today I had my pre op app to do my final try on. I actually ended up changing my mind from 475cc to 500cc hp silicone mentor implants. I brought several of my favorite shirts to try on with the implants and I felt amazing. I can't wait to feel that confident every time I get dressed in the morning!
10 days pre op!
I'm so excited and anxious! Like I have little mini anxiety attacks about it! I can't stop looking at all the swim suits and bralettes online that will soon look nice on me! :) 10 days is going to go by soooo slow. I have been working on a check list of all the things I will need around the house after surgery.
Tylenol extra strength
Gel ice packs/ frozen peas
Zip up jackets
Things to do at home-
Make sure to go grocery shopping for the hubby and kids so they don't starve while I'm down
Have clean sheets
Get a new book to read
Any things you ladies can add to my lists? I'm a list maker I have to mentally prepare myself for everything lol. Oh and I'm adding the rest of my before photos.
so I had my surgery Friday the 12th. It was super easy. Check in at 7 am left by 11. Dr Quinn is just the most amazing dr. I can't say enough good things about him. Right now I'd say my pain is about a 2/10 and tightness about a 6/10. They look so beautiful. He said my surgery was a breeze and that he's confident my recovery should go smooth. He did have more trouble getting my right implant in, a little tighter. So more bruising in one side. My daughter preferred to nurse off the leftie. So it was a little more stretched out I suppose. The swelling isn't too bad. I've been putting frozen peas in my arm pits. And that helps. And staying on top of my meds. I made the mistake of falling behind in the middle of the night and I paid for it big time! I'm probably remabling on, I can hardly keep my eyes open so I will post a few pics and do a better update tomorrow!
day 3 po
so I quit taking my pain meds last night. They were just turning me into an emotional mess. And all I wanted to do was sleep. This morning I took some Tylenol and it seems to be doing the trick. I'm feeling fine. Feels like I've done a whole lot of push ups. The girls are looking amazing though. I had my first post op appointment today and the nurse practitioner, when I took my shirt off, said "omg! They look amazing. Seriously they look fantastic!" So that made me feel great.
1 week po
just a quick little update. One week and one day post op. I'm doing fantastic!!! Only took the pain meds for two days. Healing so well. I feel like a new person! It's amazing the confidence I have gained. And my husband and I can't keep our hands off each other. ????
2 weeks post op
quick update here. Tomorrow is 2 weeks. It's been a breeze. Everyday they look better. Incisions are healing wonderfully. And they seem to already be dropping and fluffing some. My doctor released me for light exercise, so I'm happy about that. I still wake up with morning boob. Like stiff, and hard. About like when I was nursing my kids. But by the end of the day they are nice and squishy. My husband was a little, I dunno shy, about them at first. Like kinda acted disinterested. But now he's all over them! I think he was afraid of hurting them. And this may be tmi but my sex drive is through the roof. Which is awesome, because j struggled with it before. I'm loving all my confidence I've gained. Sorry I'm probably rambling on but I will post a few photos now.
One month post op
i don't have a whole lot to update on. My lefty is d&f a whole lot faster than my righty. But overall I love my new figure. My incisions are looking amazing. And my boobs are so squishy. I did not expect them to feel like this at all! I haven't any pain for the last week or so. Except when I sneeze! Ouch.
