The day has kind of snuck up on me. But here I am...
Bilateral breast augmentation 350ccs high profile submuscular
After an hour or two they wheeled me out to the parking garage where my boyfriend was supposed to pick me up. Except he wasn't there because his battery died and his car wouldn't start. Poor Lissette wheeled me all the way back up to the surgery center and ran and got her car to jump his. Now that's service! Haha all the people at imagos were very kind and after that slight hiccup we were on our way. After we got back to our hotel I took a 3 hour nap. Besides being a little dizzy I'm feeling good. I left the surgery center in a surgical bra and compression strap so I can't see a whole lot but what I can see looks good! They're not even as high and square as I was expecting them to be. The left one hurts a little more than the right but other than that nothing to report. I've been peaking under the compression band, but I'm being good and leaving everything on. It still hasn't really registered that underneath this bra are two breasts and not just a whole lot of padding. It'll probably be more real when I see them at the post op appointment tomorrow. Here's a picture of me in my outfit for the next month. Sexy huh?
Post Op Day 1
6 days post op!
PO day 24
I think I'm still kind of swollen, I feel MORE swollen than before. But looking back at the pictures, I don't think that's the case. My nipples just seem kind of puffy. I think it'll go down with time. I'm definitely healing very nicely. My left breast is just slightly higher than my right. I can't tell if they'll settle evenly or if they'll stay like that. I had some asymmetry before the BA (my right breast was smaller) so I'm thinking he may have had to lower my right crease. Whatever he did, I'm very happy with the results thus far. Im completely off the pain meds. Although I do still get twinges, but that's just the nerves healing I believe. The outside portion of both my breasts are still numb but I've read that goes away with time.
He also said as soon as the strips fall away that I can begin using silicone gel/tape. I'll have to do some research into the best one. It's funny most people have incision profession pictures up and I still haven't even seen mine. I'll post pictures as soon as the strips come of.
Still no exercise or lifting anything heavy, and I'm still very aware of my pec muscles when opening car doors or lifting my arms certain ways. I go back to work next week. So things are getting back to normal.
Im still waiting for them to soften. But I hear that takes a couple months. So hard boobies for me! It's just so difficult being patient. Anyway, I'm attaching pictures!
Dr. PG has been great so far! He has a wonderful bedside manner. I came in to see him from out of town and I couldn't imagine choosing a different Doctor. I had my procedure today and I'm already loving the results. I knocked off a star because my times with him (besides the actual procedure) were quite brief. But I actually see that as a positive. He's a very busy and in demand surgeon and his patient liaisons (lissette and Rosemarie) made sure that all of my questions and concerns were addressed. My post-op is tomorrow so I'll leave the after care and follow up section unrated until then. But if I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Dr. PG every time. Feel free to read my breast augmentation review for more details and comment if you have any questions!
