I did it! I am 1-day post op and I feel great. I am 33, mother of 3 boys aged 8, 5 and 3. I am an Asian, weighing at 99 pounds and am 5 ft tall. I am petite and was barely a 32A after three pregnancies and breast feeding. My first consultation was on Jan17, the second was on Feb28 and my surgery was on Mar9. It was surreal!
The Dr and I decided on this implant:
- Cohesive Gell/Gummy Bear Silicone implant
- Extra high profile (I am that flat chested!)
- Right: 285cc, Left: 310cc
- Infra mammary incision
- Dual-plane approach
When I woke up, I did not feel pain, just tightness on the upper pole of the breast. Even so, it did not bother me much. It just felt like I have been working out my pectoralis muscles at the gym. I experienced no nausea nor giddiness from the anesthesia. In fact, I was hungry! My op was at 2pm and my last meal was light breakfast before 8am. My last sip of water was before 11am. I am glad I have done this. Previously, my biggest fear was the pain after the surgery but now that I'm going through it rather easily, I can relax and focus on my full recovery. I am able to move both hands, open the door, pour myself a drink from a 1litre bottle, and even lift up my arms to tie up my hair. But of course, I am taking it slow.... To all of you out there, who's contemplating or anxious abt your surgery, my advice to you is relax and trust your Doc. It is not as bad as you think. :)
