My Preop apt is on Tuesday and that's when we're finalizing details like size and silicone vs. saline. I'm thinking anywhere from 340-425 cc based on what I've seen on this website. I will upload pics of my size now compared to my ideal size. Dr. Harrington said at my consult it doesn't matter with my anatomy if I choose silicone or saline. I'm leaning toward saline but we will discuss it further in a few days at the Preop apt!

Boobs that I like

Here's some boobs that I think look great.

Preop photos

Here are some photos of what I'm working with lol (not much) At the Preop apt I decided on saline. The doctor thinks somewhere in the 375-425 range is appropriate for my goals. I'm really still contemplating silicone vs saline although we officially decided on saline at my Preop appointment. I can't decide!!! Opinions welcome.

Switched to silicone-6 days til surgery

I decided to switch to silicone. I was worried about the feel of saline so I called- just had to pay 900$ more. I've attached Preop photos I'm so excited- the day is so near.

Surgery complete! Post op day one

So I had surgery yesterday. I ended up with 385cc sub muscular implants and I switched to natrelle inspira SRF-385 which is a silicone full profile implant. I have been taking my pain pills (Percocet) and muscle relaxer every four hours since the surgery. You can take 2 pills every four hours and that's what I've needed to manage the pain. Today I went in for my post op day 1 appointment and they unwrapped the ace bandage and checked my incisions. I put a tank top on and the rewrapped my bandage. I'm suprised how great they look already. The pain is pretty intense even with pain meds

Post-op day 5

So it's been 5 days since surgery. I just finished my antibiotics t

Day 6 post op

Day 6 is here- still having pain, mostly in my left boob. I'm occasionally taking a Percocet and muscle relaxer when I need it. Sleeping has gotten easier, I've been able to sleep on my side already if I'm positioned right. I'm suprised my boobs aren't higher- I feel I lucked out with my surgeon because I love them already. I'll attach some pics from the last few days

10 days post-op

It's been almost 2 weeks! Changes are they don't feel quite as heavy on my chest. They are both still numb and quite firm but they have softened from the boulders they were initially lol. I went back to work after 7 days and it was terrible. A word of advice- if you work in a hospital you're going to need more than a week. I work in the ER so light duty isn't an option. Here's some updated pic- I'm so happy with them.

Liposuction

I forgot to mention Dr. Harrington liposuction's your armpit fat as an added benefit to make your augmentation look even better - I didn't have much but it's completely gone now! That's what you bruising is from in the last photos
Minneapolis Plastic Surgeon

She is simply fabulous. I had a procedure done by her in the past and have nothing but great things to say about her.
