3 days before.....
I am so so scared:((( my husband is so sweet and he keeps telling me he feels confident. Dr Korman is amazing. I am in very good hands. 3ds to go. I will be fine. Just sick a little from me just being scared LOLOL I feel like I am both super scared and heartfully hopeful all goes well. No photos today. I am typing off my phone. Just grateful this site exists....
Less than 24 hrs to go
30 mins before we leave - good bye Little Boobville
I am home!
Thank you so much for all your comments and messages. It all would a lot different if you were not here for me. THANK YOU!!!
I am so grateful. I got this procedure done with help of amazing most professional outstanding team. Everything worked this morning like a Swiss clock. Every person was superb. Everyone knew exactly what to do. I am beyond impressed.
Dr Korman created a team of people who are dedicated.
Tiffany, RN was incredible. Thank you for everything you did today
465/495cc Smooth round silicone under muscle under the breast incision
It's had been 12 hrs since surgery was performed
Another thing I learned about myself today is I do have a sensation all around. Yes it's somewhat less normal but I feel with my skin. This was good.
One more thing I do not feel pain from incisions. At all! I do have some pains on my skin from inside out. Again I keep my meds schedule and if I go too long where it wears itself out I take them and while I waiting for it to kick in I use frozen peas who I put into the smallest ziplock bag and just onto my skin for 3-5 mins then give it a break and put it on again. Feels SO good :) so this is it for the first day. I will be spending the night in my recliner because it gives me a better control of my body. My torso is tall and I cant creat enough stable height in my bed. It's OK it's all temp :)
Have a very lovely night everyone
My very very best to all
Day 2 over night and morning update
Another thing I discovered about my self I cannot lean over. I feel like a huge amount hangs on my chest, pushes me down and just a really odd u easy feeling. So I won't do it anymore :) at least not for a little while.
Tomorrow is my follow up with Dr Korman. I really look forward to that. I have not taken my wrap bandages yet. I know he will do it tomorrow and I will get to see the Girls for the first time. No kind of physical activities that I am
Used to but I do walk around the apartment am I do kind of like go over the breast skin (with no pressure) with a finger. A little blood curculation :):):)
As I will think of more things to share I will. For now I am going to rest and keep you posted on my progress. Sending love, prayers and healing thoughts to all of you
Day 3 - first post op visit
Work with Dr Korman's group. Everyone is an inspiration. I was convinced once again today.
All is going well. I have been released from wearing soft bandages. No I wear sports bra in stead. Currently I am in 36D and its super snug. I thingamajig be 38D would be better. I am getting off pain pills. I took my first very sloooow 30 mins walk in the neighborhood. It does not hurt a bit. But it still feels like a baby elephant is sitting on my chest but that was to be expected. All is well. I taking slowly but surely. It's just a part of the process. My stitches I can't really see them but stitches are stiches. They will disappear eventually. I am so so happy. It is worth an if I had to do it again I will, no second thought, no hesitation. I am attaching a few pics. Have a great great night everyone
Day 4 OMG it's amazing
I hope everyone is doing well and if you are just planning your surgery talk to your doctor. He/she is the best person to ask questions and advices.

10 days post op
Had my 10 day post op appointment with my doctor who is absolutely amazing. I have said it before and will say it again. How lucky i am i did not have to travel anywhere because i have a luxurious access to high end professionals in area where I live. LUCKY!!! Dr. Korman's team is amazing to. Stephanie, Kary - ladies love you and your work very very much. You just made me so comfortable from day one
10 days post op - the rest of update
The site is not taking the text i try to upload.
10 days post op pics
10 days post op
1. Pressure band - i don't have to wear it anymore. Just the thought of it makes me exuberantly happy. Don't get me wrong I am an obedient patient (I think:) but it was irritating my arm pits skin and today is The Day. I no longer have to wear it!!!
2. Tape is off my stitches. Stitches look very good. The redness, height and pigmentation are quite promising. It looks super good for 10 days old and of course any scar with the right care will take time to become less visible than it is early on. I also purchased a special scar cream. I will attach a picture and will be taking pics periodically so we all can see the progress. The most important thing my doctor said it works and i trust him very very much. My scars are not in my crease which means my original crease must have moved up because my breasts weigh on skin and are creating a New Crease. Such sweet thing. I know I am a little silly about it but I LOVE thinking of this stuff and being amazed at how our bodies creatively super intelligent and know exactly what to do and how to adjust
10 days post op (continued)
It is NOT posting the entire update - sorry everyone i am checking in with our community manager
10days post op trying to continue my last night update.
3. I am getting stronger = more physical activities and I will be re starting my gym membership which i put on temp hold. Nothing heavy of course but just the sense of physical presence at the gym can be already healing LOLOL. Gym junkie :):):)
4. Massaging - how cool is that?!!! Got a list of breast massaging exercises. So, me and the Girls started our new routine today. I will also keep a photo progress on how it all goes.
5. I don’t look huge or out of proportion with my body built and the size of implants that was put in. Every day I look at them and feel I adore them. Why did not I do it earlier :):):) so much joy heaving them. I guess everything has its own time.
I think this is it for today. I am sending my best warmest wishes to all of you who is thinking about getting this procedure done, who is scheduled and getting ready for it and for all of you who had it done already and are now healing and learning and adjusting to having new Girlfriends in our lives :)
14 days post op
I am doing my massages x 2hrs on everage. Girls are happy. They are getting softer and softer today I felt a little more bouncy and I am finally able to wear v neck top and have Girls " hang out at a good location". They started dropping in the last few days. Massaging is a miracle. I found the best technique which works best and helps my skin to adjust. I also do very light arms stretching and help by peaceful breathing and sending positive thoughts and wishes for my new best Girlfriends. Love them dearly. Don't remember life without them :)
I am walking tons. Just walking for now - but makes me feel so good to go out for an hour stroll in the evening. Helps to relax and makes me feel pro active and like I am doing something good for my body while I am waiting for it to completely recover. Hopefully i can go back to my regular training in the near future. Few more weeks
I am feeling less and less bothered by this new addition. They are becoming more and more a part of me and I just feel like this has been one of the best decisions and investments. What can I say...I love them :)
Hope everyone is doing well

3 weeks post op
I wanted to get this procedure done for so long and was too scared. Finally the time was right. I had researched for a while and finally came across Dr. Korman and his office. All staff is amazing ans outstanding customer service. Smiles are everywhere!!!! I knew from the beginning this was a warm, friendly and professionals place. I had my free initial consultation. Dr. Korman reviewed my options and sent me home with "home work" - rice test. This was so much fun. I later schedule pre-op and Dr. Korman again gave me advice which I took on and today I am 2 weeks post op and A M A Z E D at my results. I have so much respect for my doctor and his team. It takes true professionals with values to run such a happy place. I recommend Dr. Korman's practice.
