Hello ladies! I have been stalking these forums...
Hello ladies! I have been stalking these forums for months reading reviews and asking questions, all the while trying to decide if I really want to get this procedure done or not. I am scheduled for July 24th but might push the date to August 7th due to my new health insurance kicking in. I am currently 33A and I'm getting 450 cc under the muscle silicone. I have had my consultation already and I go in on the 9th to get my medical clearance. Ladies I haven't picked up any essentials and I would like to know what items you think I should get. I'm no longer nervous and I'm so excited and can't wait for the new girls to arrive.
Sorry ladies I forgot to mention , Mentor smooth gel cohesive 450cc hp under the muscle (for now subpectoral ).
Clearance and bloodwork
Hey ladies! So today I went and signed my consents and got my clearance done. Boy was there a lot of information but now that I'm past getting pricked with a needle part I'm so excited and can't wait until surgery.My MA was very understanding and informative. There was another MA training so she was present with us in the room. I still do have some questions but I will ask the doctor once I see him again. Vitals were good except for the blood pressure and that was only because I was hungry and haven't eaten anything prior. They gave me my prescriptions
Pain, muscle relaxer, antibiotic and nausea medications.
I still haven't picked up any essentials but I will soon like
Dial soap, ice bag, two extra pillows(I already have 4 on my bed) stool softener/laxative, soup, aloe water, pineapples, dry cleansing clothes for cleaning body, baby wipes, cold cuts for sandwiches, I already have ensures, shirts that button in the front, sports bras that open in front and spandex . If there's anything I'm missing please of tell me.
So what's a good scar cream that also works well for women of color?
If it's not one thing it's another and despite how bad I want to get this done it just seems as if something is always coming up. My bday is very soon so I wanted to have it time before then and also before my work schedule hours increase(working two jobs). Some of my folks are telling me to wait and in a way I'm feeling like I should because I will deeply regret if God forbid something goes wrong but then again I feel like I also want to just go through with the surgery and get it over with. I'm feeling anxious, excited and worried. Not sure if I'm stressing myself out because I'm so anxious for the procedure. So far I have about 20% more to pay and I'm all set. I still haven't brought any essentials yet because when I called my PS office on Friday they said I will know if my PS approves for clearance by the 24th. Man he's a busy guy lol. I am however struggling with the decision of getting Novo scar cream or Silicone scar sheets. I don't keloid and my skin normally heals well but does leave a scar that fades over time but I won't a speedy assisted process.
Here's some pics of the baby girls lol ????????
Emergency room visit????????
First and foremost i hate being in hospitals (I'm such a big baby) sometimes I wonder how I'm gonna do with childbirth and such lol.So I'm in the emergency room today because I started to feel some pain /discomfort in my body. So I'm here in a gown getting poked and probe just to make sure thins are all well. Based on my results later that will determine if I will have to push my surgery back once again which I don't mind because health is first and this will give me more time to work these crazy hours and save up for the big vacation. I'm looking forward to Costa Rica, Fiji or Aruba !
New surgery date!!
So I spoke with my PC today and just to be safe we moved the surgery date to August 12th which falls on a Tuesday! So I have a couple of more days to prepare for the surgery now! Whoop whoop! I still anxious and excited though. I also spoke with her about getting a silicone gel for the scar that she says they sell in their office that works really well but for
$80 I don't know if I want to spend that much. I heard its good but not sure. It's called BioCorneum cream and it's a silicone scar treatment with a steroid and also spf30.
Doctor said I'm cleared for takeoff
So the doctors nurse called me today and gave me the cleaning for August 12th! Yayyyy. Now it's time for me to look for easy on and off clothes. I was told not to buy any sports bras yet until after so I'm just gonna get another bra they give you at the office .
So I decided to create a checklist of things I think I may need for after care of my surgery. I decided that I would cook 2 big meals so that way the house is fed and my fam/friends that will be attending to me will also be well fed while doing so. I'm a big eater so cooking is my thing.
So far this is what I have in mind to get
2 extra pillows (ikea)
Thera Pearl (heat/cold pad)
Cold cuts (sandwich meat)
Scar cream (still not sure which one to get yet either Biocorneum or Scar guard silicone sheets)
Detachable shower head
Aloe Vera Water
Buy new shirts (easy on and off)
Batteries for my massager
If I'm missing something let me know.
Good and Bad news!!!
So the good news is that today I paid off my full balance of my procedure ! yay. Seeing all that money leave me was devastating but hey I'd it is something you want you go and get it lol. The Bad news is that I may have to cancel my surgery because where was I this whole time that I didn't realize that my prescription wouldn't be covered under my insurance and that I would possibly have to spend about $600 or less for medicine!!! Ouch !!!! So I called the office to try and work something out and my doctor won't be back until Thursday ! I'm freak king out because I need to know an estimate of how much the prescriptions are gonna cost me out of pocket because things come up and whose gonna be able to just fork over all that amount of money at the last min? Secondly I have allergies to Sulfa so I can't just take anything. I'm feeling like canceling right now but I don't want to. I don't know if this is a sign or not for me to bit go through with it smh. The office manager said he will try and contact the doctor and see what he says . I expressed how urgent this matter was to me and that I need an estimate of an answer before that Thursday which would put me almost 4-5 days away from my surgery.
Okay I'm calm now
So I just called the pharmacy and found out that the price for all the prescriptions is no where near the amount I thought I would have to pay out of pocket. The price is more reasonable like around $120 or so. Feeling so much happier now. Lol really was freaking out. On my way to do laundry I will drop the prescription off and see what the deal is . That's definitely a sign of relief! So boobies are still on!
So today I went and picked up two extra pillows ,pillow case, star night lights (lol I'm such a big baby when it comes to being in the dark) and my prescriptions that cost me a whomping $130.26 ! Must be nice I tell ya... I could be doing so many other things with that amount but hey these medicines were well worth it right? The only things left are the minor things like food , water, baby wipes and later down the line scar sheets. My bday falls I've week post op and I want to go do a small get away with my friend . I'm kind of bummed out that I may not be able to drink any alcohol . I'm hoping that I can at least have a little sippy sip though lol. I plan on going to the mall 5 days post op to go get 4 outfits for my bday (2 dresses,2 day outfits/lounging, bathing suit , new shoes) and also try on clothes since I won't be able to fit anything. Tomorrow I plan on taking all the clothes I know I won't be able to fit , put them in a bag and give them away to either family/friend or salvation army. I will embark on a new journey soon and some of these tops and dresses I won't be able to share any more memories with ????. Overall I'm still excited for the new girls though!!!
Just curious lol
How long do you have to wait before you can have sex again even if it's very gentle and doesn't involve to much movement ? Lol
Counting down the days
I can't believe my day is right around the corner. I'm overwhelmed with excitement, anxiety, nervousness and preparations to becoming use to my new body. I'm wondering about getting the arnica pills since I will be drinking Aloe Water . I still need to get the antibacterial soap that I somehow haven't been able to get when going to Duane Reade aka Walgreens. I see that Walmart has all the things you can think of (Thought Target would too) lol but that megastore is just to far out to reach . I have decided to wash laundry,sweep,mop and vacuum room, prep station next to bed, prep bed with pillows and sort out clothes /shoes that I will be wearing throughout the weeks all on Monday night. As far as earlier that day on Monday , I will run the little bit of errands I need to do and get the last of my essentials if I haven't already picked them up by then. Ladies if you have any suggestions for me please do tell.
Nurse just called today to go over a few things with me and to let me know my surgery time is at 7am so I have to be there by 6am. I will be up by 4am.
So I made a few purchases of sweaters, shirts ,dresses and items for myself for post op surgery. Here's some pics that will soon be throwbacks..lol
So here's a few pics of how the girls looked in a bra. Sorry for the pics loading sideways and upside down(Realself glitch not mines lol). Btw I don't wear a bra if it doesn't have any padding lol
Hey ladies and thank you all for your support. I'm so tired right now but at the moment I'm handling last min preparations such as laundry, cooking and cleaning. I have gotten everything I need from the store so far except for cranberry juice, crackers, bread and eggs but will ask someone to pick that up for me. I should be done with everything by 10 and post an update. Today is also my nephews bday and he just turned 11!!! So I have a few members of my family over to sing happy bday to him. Talk to you ladies in a few. Until then if you ladies have any more advice to give , pass them along.
Last day to sleep on stomach
Hey ladies it's almost time! I'm scheduled for surgery at 7am and I have to be there by 6am so I will be updating very soon afterwards if I'm not knocked out from the meds. Everything is in place, so far except for the laxative or stool softener! My best friend is on her way to the house to spend the night. I cleaned up as well. I prepared steak, baked chicken , broccoli, mash potatoes,sandwiches , tuna fish salad and I have soups on the counter. I have my Aloe water which I will have to re up on by Thursday. Water tank is filled. I just finish popping for the day (thank God so I won't be to backed up when the mds kick in) out fit is together. So the only thing left to do is shower, pray , relax and get some rest. I think that what makes me nervous the most is the post op pressure and pain also being nervous about the surgery in gerneral. Shout out to my girls on here that have been consistent with keeping up with me, I appreciate y'all so much. So I guess the next time I will be updating is when I get there and I will take pics real quick . Oh btw I also have the bed propped up and ready too.
Made it to the other side
12 Aug 2014
Day of treatment
Hey ladies I made it! About to eat some soup so I can take muscle relaxer. Lots of soreness and tightness now. Dr. Altman is amazing and his staff. Will talk later.thank you for all your prayers ladies.
Quick loopy update lol
12 Aug 2014
Day of treatment
Hey ladies quick update for y'all. I'm experiencing muscle tightness, pressure and soreness. On a scale from 1-10 I would say it's definitely between 6-7. Once the meds kick in and I sleep it's down to a scale 1. Weird right. No nausea as of now. Once I wake up I feel everything lol . Gosh .. I have been eating soup and little sandwich bites, drinking aloe water and water. I take cat naps and when I wake up I feel loopy. My best friend is here with me and she's been helping me carry on and providing company. One thing I will say is I swear I'm righting something but it never gets written lol. Going to pee I need a little assistance getting there. Getting back on the bed is a little challenging for I have to use my but muscles and core muscles because my bed is a little high. Getting up from it isn't that bad. The cat came and later next to me but when I touched her she nibbled my finger as to say rest because I want to play and you can't do that right now lol. I can respect that lol. I don't want to open the bra even though it will feel less tight , I will take the pics tomorrow. For the meantime keep the support coming and thank you ladies in advance/present time. Btw I have also been icing the boobs on top where I feel the most pain at.
Things I notice
12 Aug 2014
Day of treatment
I really can't sleep for more then 2 hours and less then 1 hour without waking up. I'm taking the muscle relaxers every 8 hours and the pain pill every four hours. The surgery bra that was given to me is a Black compression bra by Marena ! How cool lol. When I lean forward they don't hurt as much but every time I lay back and wake up it's like I wake up all of a sudden. I'm on my second bottle of Aloe Water and still icing. I switch between the boobs ice packs and the back one. Funny story, my nephew (11) told his camp counselor today that he would not be coming in tomorrow or Thursday and she asked him why. He replied "because my Aunt had surgery and I want to be there for her, she asked what type and he told her "it's personal" lol . Thank God for this blessing and for my recovery as well. Two more other things I notice too lol is that my right boob looks slightly higher in the bra . I will ask about that tomorrow morning and besides having to read over my text and text slow because I'm a little loopy from the meds , underneath my arms feel sore.
So today I seen Dr.Altman for my post op check up. All my vitals were good and he loosened up that dreaded bra which was causing me so much more pain. He explained to me that I had som very tight pec muscles so he had to squeeze those bad boys in there lol. I will try and upload pics later but right now it will be to much discomfort to open and close it. My stomach however is bloated as hell with no pain but I will soon be ready lol. I haven't ate anything to solid so today will be that day. I have been eating soup and sandwiches for the most part. My pain is mostly where the top part of the boob is and the middle but other than that it's fine. P.S. Ladies what ever you do , don't get upset about anything because your pec muscles get tight and the muscles well I guess they spass a little.
They don't look as big right now. They actually look smaller from the angles I took.
Hey ladies! So far I have been able to sleep longer now that my body has started adjusting to the meds. I slip in and out of sleep but for longer periods. I'm currently still bloated but I'm not ready to take the laxative yet because I have seem to be passing gas a lot lol. So I will give a few to see if it doesn't get better. I have been opening the bra every so often just to relieve some pressure . It seems when I am laying propped up that my muscles seem to tense on their own for a quick second before becoming relaxed .still no nausea or pain in the belly. Burping feels hella good but to cough oh gosh my life is to valuable lol . Feels awful lol. I started taking the Pain pills every 4-6 hours and in between I take a half because I want to stay ahead of the pain but I don't know if it's working . When I'm sleep I feel nothing but when I wake oh Lord do I feel tightness , pressure and what ever unexplainable pleasures lol. Getting up out the bed I still need a helpers hand behind my back. I have been icing the boobs frequently and also decided to put the heat pad on my back. I took my first bath today and it was crazy trying to sit down and get back up lol. My ex boyfriend came over today to help assist my nephew who has been there every step of the way. I feel so loved lol. I feel loopy when the meds kick in and start typing and saying funny things lol. Talking to long or not stopping to break my sentence up results in shortness of breath or little bit of reflexes. My muscles were very tight to begin with so I think that's why I'm experiencing so much discomfort .
The right boob seems higher and the left seems to be dropping more .
Oh gosh so I'm running low on my Perc and there's no refill on them. I so need another prescription because I'm only on day 2 going to day 3 and I'm down to like my last few pills. I'm not addicted but my chest muscles are so damn tight I'm still in pain.
So I'm in less pain today. I feel the muscle tightness and soreness at the top of the boob , underneath arm pits, on the side of the arms/boob muscle and a little bit on the left inner top boob. When I talk for to long or my pitch is to loud , my left boob muscles start flexing. Haven't made poop yet and I'm down to my last 2 pain pills. My moms boyfriend went to the store to get me Tylenol extra strength for me to take 2 at a time. I can say that I believe the meds weren't doing to much for me but it did help some and also helped me sleep. I'm still laying on an incline but every now and then I get up and walk. Waking up in the morning I feel "morning boob" and then it goes away. I have been eating so often and gained about 8 lbs even though I think most of the weight is in my stomach lol so by later today I will make poopy poop. My nephew has still been a blessing with helping me. I definately see a slight difference as the boobs have dropped a little from yesterday. I also let the boobs air out for about 20 mins a day.A questioned I want to know the answer to " Is it just me or is that because the boobs stretch the skin that you find yourself hunched over a little as opposed to standing up straight?
Is it just me
Is it just me or is my bra to tight and high underneath my underarms? Excuse my belly I'm getting ready to release those demons lurking inside my belly.lol
Yayyyy so for all my ladies that knows what it's like to be constipated I finally couldn't take it anymore! My laxative kept giving me false alarms of gas with no fire so I decided to push a little bit and take deep breathes to squeeze it out. I'm sorry about the tmi but this has been the worst feeling ever . My stomachs swelling is going down and I'm gonna ice my chert afterwards to make sure it's okay from some of the squeezing. What a relief!!!
Must be nice ....
So today is my what 3rd or 4th day and I still have soreness and tightness in my chest . I finally was able to make #2 and I felt so relieved. Thank God that my stomach is no longer hard and back to soft(I was looking almost6 months preggo) . I sneezed yesterday and this morning and can I tell you how much it hurts the boobs. To make matters worse my allergies are starting up and when I blew my nose this morning I saw mucus that wasn't clear . I try my best not to sneeze because it hurts so bad. My nurse said that when you sneeze or cough to hold your chest with both hands but now is not the time to be getting sick of any sort. I'm currently sitting upright because laying down on an incline like your told just isn't the feeling I'm going for now. I have ran out of my Percocet and I'm now taking Tylenol extra strength. Waiting on my mom to return to make breakfast but for now I'm eating a yogurt just so I can take my meds. I super tight and sore in the chest right now . Not healing the way I thought I would but hey this is the price you pay for beauty right lol beauty is pain. I think I'm going to open the bra up a little but it seems when I do there nothing there holding the weight and the boobs sensors seem to flex just a little .im still drinking plenty of fluids and I will be eating more soft foods and stuff with fiber in it to help me go to the bathroom better. Will post pics later. So to my ladies that have had their BA's done , how did your boobs feel by this day?
I'm freaking out
Are my scar areas supposed to look like this? Like I know there will be some bruising and swelling but is my skin supposed to look like this where the bra wraps around on the skin ?
So I'm starting to get sharp shooting pains in my left boob that hurt so bad omg! I'm gonna ice them but damn they hurt so bad.
Good morning ladies! Mentally I'm feeling much better . Physically a little better but I still have soreness under my arms , I move around a bit more on my own but I can feel my muscles tightening up if I'm doing to much which seems like everything I do, sneezing still hurts because I have allergies, bottom of boob feels a little weird but not painful,I can brush my teeth and wash my face but slowly and softly, I still can not bathe on my own , My tits are still riding high but they are rounding out more,nipples aka cops are sensitive and always on alert (I call them cops lol) . I stand up a little straighter and not as hunched. I have learned to use my feet and toes to help me do things like pick things up, flush toilet , turn sink on/off lol etc. as weird as it sounds I was almost completely immobile to the basic things because my recovery isn't going as fast as most would have and it's because if my tight pec muscles. I just can't wait for them to fluff out some more. I went to the bathroom again yesterday and even though I'm not as bloated the pouch is still holding some retention of water in it( I need my flat stomach back) lol. So let's see how today goes. I get a bathe today yippy. My friends and ex boyfriend have been so supportive, more then family ( besides my nephew being my main support)but hey I'm just happy that at least someone was there and cared for me! My nephew has been working full time to help me out and he actually loves it. God is defiantly good and that little man is truly a blessing. I told him make sure you don't turn my situation into a back to school story lol you know how the teachers tell the kids to write about what they did over the summer , I told him to leave this part out. lol oh did I forget to mention that I let the girls breath for intervals of 20mins 6 times a day equalling up to 2 hours. It's much better then letting breathe for 2 hours straight.
Good afternoon ladies! It feels so good to be bathe but guess what? Today marked the first day that I was able to actually wash some parts of my body on my own without help yaayyyy. I'm definitely improving . I did notice that by back (lower to middle part) was stiff and sore. I guess maybe from my posture and the weight. I'm sitting down now with my robe on. Another thing is that my ( weak stomaches not allowed ,TMI warning in effect) when I go move my bowels it stings so bad . Idk why though. I haven't been drinking as much liquids as I normally use to. I also took an 1.5 hour nap . I'm going to use my heating pad for my back so I can feel better. I have a salad that I'm about to eat that's all greens and has sliced beef brisket on it. That should also help me with the bathroom. I'm gonna send my ex to the store to get me some applesauce . I somehow worked up a sweet tooth ironically lol but I won't give in. I will wait to my bday to have some nice cake lol. Other then that I'm taking the Arnica Pellets and I finished all my meds!!! Yayyy. So the only thing I'm taking is the Arnica pellets and if I feel the need to take it Tylenol. Still hurts like crap to sneeze lol . I forgot to mention when I wash up I always make sure to use my antiseptic cleanser on my boob area . My nipples are sensitive so I'm careful not to touch them lol I plan on venturing out tomorrow to get an outfit for dinner for my bday . I pray I will be okay. So I'm gonna leave first thing since the stores won't be crowded and pick about 5 -6 stores to see if there's anything I can get . So if I get there by 10 I should be done by 2 and home by 3 the latest . Once I get back I will then take a nap . I'm also gonna take 2 tylenols extra strength when I wake up just to help assist me because I will be walking and taking breaks in between. Pray for me y'all. I already mapped out which stores I will go to first and everything lol
Sorry boobies and ladies
Good evening ladies!!! So I did a number on myself today when I went to the mall to look for an outfit for my bday. I'm sorry i didn't take pics of some of the clothes I tried on because I was getting very emotional, agitated and all the above .
1.) I need a bigger bra . The current one I was provided with is a size 34D which is to tight and I need a 36D . They are also charging me $60 for an additional one! (Fml)
2.) my boobs are so funny shaped that I went store to store looking for a top/dress that was loose enough at the top to cover my funny ass looking boobs.
3.) I started to get very emotional
4.) finding clothes in my house just to wear to the store is hard because my boobs are so high up , hard, not to rounded and slanted from the look of the side that it's impossible to hide them unless your wear a baggy shirt or something with ruffles that is loose which I don't really own any summer clothes like that. Their mostly winter.
5.) wasn't expecting my recovery to be this slow but hey it is what what it is.
6.) I tried to go everywhere by car and I don't always have that luxury .
7.) first day out the house besides my post op visit.
.8) by the time I got home I had to shower on my own for the first time, boobs were sore, iced them while I ate , and went to sleep.
9.) praying that I didn't hurt the girls to much
10.) is it worth buying a new bra now and my post op (1week) appointment is Thursday for my PS to tell me I can wear regular sports bra?
11.) gained 10 lbs(bloating went down tremendously but that booty got fatter) can someone say Cake cake cake cake cake, and it's not even my birthday!
12.)think I may have forgotten to mention something but I will throw it in with my next post
13.) WHOOOOOSSSSSAAAAAAHHHHHH LOL
So that was my day so sorry I couldn't get to you ladies sooner.
Hey ladies I made it to 26!!!
First and foremost I would like to thank God for blessing me with seeing another birthday and to all the ladies that have have been with me during my journey and have sent their blessings ! I went to the spa , got my hair done and went to dinner( didn't drink any alcohol and all the guys were trying to buy me drinks) lol. I shared the evening with a few ladies cousins and close friends. My nipples irritated me the whole day because they were hard and super sensitive lol. I had crab cake with lobster sauce for an appetizer (some of my friend dry aged steak, yummy) lamb chops , potatoes au gratin , asparagus and complimentary cake thanks to the steakhouse! With every bite my heart beat raced and I had wish that there's was no one there at the restaurant so I could just pig out. Lol we sat in a booth and it took me quite a while to slide in to the middle seat( I'm a Leo so we have to be center of attention lol) and that was that. I went home and put ice on my boobs, popped 2 Tylenol extra strength and went to sleep. Lol can't front , I wanted to drink so bad but these girls are an investment so I passed.( it was tempting though) lol.
New Sports Bra
No wire Victoria Secret sports bra 36D (whoa/wow lol) VSX . It has padding on the inside so it bumpers my angry birds aka nipples lol. I will be wearing this for work and switching out between the surgical bra and regular sports bra.
Hey ladies how are you all? I hope well and can't wait to speak with you. So I wrote a whole review for it not to upload about my day but I guess everything happens for a reason because what a day I had from the argument with this dude in the train about a seat , my Mother Nature pouring down rain (my period) while I sat in a seat at a meeting unprepared because the forecast normally calls for rain by next week and I didn't bring any umbrella with me (I normally have one or a raincoat ) lol, looking all over from store to store for a sports bra in my size (I will be ordering online from now on lol). What a day right ? My Angry birds added tension to the parade of rain and hormones lol. So today was just one of those days ladies. Let the church say " Amen" cuz we all know what that's like! lol went and seen the doctor today and he removed my stitches and replaced a new tape on top of the incisions until next week or so when I can take it off. He wanted the incisions to heal a little longer. He said that my boobs are still riding high and tight but they are taking shape little by little. He showed me how to massage these girls and told me to do the excessive 3 times a day 10x for each section. It definitely takes some time to get use to sheesh. I got the okay to wear an elastic band sports bra so thank God I didn't waste money buying a new surgical bra from them @ $60 because it would have been a waste. He also have me the okay to not wear a bra in the house or maybe even sleep in because he said that the muscles are so tight that it's holding the implant and it needs to soften and fluff lol. Massaging and time will help and also taking it easy (G.I . Jane chest over here , lol) my movement of my arms are quite okay and I have reduced my items in my bag to necessities only and I don't use the leather bags because it carries it's own weight by itself. Today I felt the wear and tear from being out all day and having that little bit of weight in my shoulder. When I got home I bathe (not showered) and put some warm compresses on top of the boobs and on the side to relax the muscles. Then I massage them through out the night to he them used to the technique . So ladies boobies will actually start improving some more. I found a solution to my franken boob deformation visual through clothes by buying this new sports bra which has a slight padding and rounds the boob out like a natural one without disturbing the healing process. I will only wear it when I'm wearing something that is very tight and not loose enough to hide shape of boob with regular sports /surgical bra on. Tonight I will be sleeping without bra on only because of the tight muscles. Well ladies I hope you enjoyed your day/night and I will speak to you ladies tomorrow. Xoxox
Hey ladies how are you? Sorry I haven't been updating as much . Friday was my first day back to work and from there it's been so much going on from school registry , looking for a new apartment, looking at some cars and just work in general. So far the boobies have been causing a lot of chaos in the streets and they haven't even took their rightful shape yet lol ( must be the bra I wear) . They are starting to soften up little by little and when I get upset I can feel the muscles tightening up. My muscles in my arms and underneath have become more relaxed but I still don't have my full strength as of yet. Opening doors aren't so bad bug I make sure to hold the boob on top with the opposite hand while pulling to give it assistance and so that way when it tenses up I'm right there to relax it . Sort of like nursing a baby lol. My Angry Birds are still angry and they are loud so I muffle them with a padded bra. Lol they are still high .chest doesn't hurt anymore when I sneeze it just tightens up for a whole and then releases. On another note my bowel movements are everyday and they'd very soft. I go in increments to release the cracken . I haven't taken any meds except for the arnica pellets every now and then. Tomorrow I will post pics for I make 2 weeks yay!
2 weeks ! Happy bday to Mariella and Gisella
Yesterday made Mariella and Gisella's bday. They made 2 weeks ladies . Lol what a joy and pain they have been since the the day they were born. So far no more pain , just muscles soreness slightly and stiffness in some areas .
I have tried not to get upset but certain family members be pushing my buttons. So far I have managed to keep the Hulk under my control so that's an achievement whoo sah! Angry birds are still angry except I have managed to muffled their screams using a padded sports bra from VS and no ladies there's no wire in them but they make the twins look huge underneath shirts lol. My boob still has that awkward shape but I conceal it with the bra and in return get stared at my confused human beings that wonder if maybe "She got milk" or that's a MILF not knowing I'm without child lol. My Bowel movements have gone back to its regular cycle except my stools are still soft and I go in installments . Break it on down y'all. I have been also trying to take it easy with my everyday task and movements and still help someone helping me . My friend came over yesterday and help me clean the house and so my laundry. I tried wiping something down but the sponge and my muscles didn't get along so I walked away from that fight. Lol I have been massaging the twins like if I was burping a newborn baby! The bottom part of my boobs feel much more softer then the top part. I don't wear a bra for the most part at bed sometimes or walking around the house sometimes because my muscles are still so tight . Hopefully by 2 months they will drop. Ladies if I'm good at doing anything , I best at keeping it real. We all have desires and urges and one of mines is to masturbate. So I finally did the day of my 14th mark or maybe the day before I forgot but I was so nervous with the whole don't get your pressured raised up and stuff and the heart beat in pulsing. I tried and when the big O hit I was like okay I can't enjoy the whole feel because I'm still so scared ( which also caused me to shorten the length of my enjoyment lol) . So I felt my boobs and noticed that they were a little ummm tighter but then later on after massaging them they went back to normal. So I decided to wait another 2-3 weeks because I was really confused even though the doc said you can sip or play but lightly after 2 weeks , I don't want to ruin my investments because I became anxious and allowed temptation to get the best of me. No ladies nothing close to 50 Shades of Grey but more like 50 Shades of truth. Time to time we don't go in depth enough about our experiences and we say "tmi" but it's so imperative that we keep it 100 because we are the first source when it comes to experiences and letting someone know what it's like to go through it for everyone's body is different . I hope you ladies are doing good as well. Shout out to all my ladies who just went under recently and to those who are still riding that journey of boobie love . I'm gonna call it the "Soul Boobie Train" yea that sounds just about right . I think I forgot to mention a few things but I'm sure it will come back to memory after I'm done eating lol. Here's some pics ladies .
Scar tape removal
Hey ladies! How have you been? I hope well. So today marked the day when I removed the second tape that was places over my incision scars. I was nervous at first but I managed to get it off and I'm surprised it isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Once I removed it I took a cotton ball with some witch hazel on it and wiped the scar site because I didn't have peroxide . It didn't sting or burn. The only thing I can say that it's a little uncomfortable with the bras fabric next to the scar even though when I touch that area it feels sort if num.
Laying on my back is really getting uncomfortable and I can't wait to sleep on my side.
Boobies are getting softer but mostly on the bottom half and the top part is getting there.I'm still religiously massaging them .
No pain still and my muscles are getting back to its normal flexibility . Yayy
On Tuesday I make 3 weeks (21 days) post and that is when I have the okay to use the Scar cream in which I will be using Bio Corneum. SPF 30.
The dark areas are just from me wearing the sports bra. So I hold my chest when going upstairs and when sneezing. I'm still trying to take or easy despite the fact that I feel a little well over 85%. If I do something that's to exerting , my boobs let me know and then I go console them with massages. Nipples are still sensitive but not as much. They channel on and off (mostly on though lol) .
Other then that at the moment I'm just enjoying my nephews last few days with me before he travels back home for school. I will miss my friend, baby, nephew , caregiver and confidant all in one. So I think I have the summer time sadness but on the contrary I can't wait to the boobies fluff out and drop .
3 weeks post op
Hey ladies ! I been gone for a min now I back with the jump off lol I prayed that all you ladies have been well during my time of silence. I can't believe I'm 22 days post op. Not much has changed since my 2 week mark except for the fact it's getting a little softer. They seem to be rounding out a little more. I have been continuing my massages and I have been using the BioCornuem Advance Scar cream since yesterday. Chest still tightening when I yarn, sneeze , or bend over to long. Still taking it type easy because I don't want to flex my muscles to much so they can soften faster. Not much has really changed though . Looks like this is going to be a long journey. Hopefully by 2 months I will definitely see a change. I will say that my left boob is the one winning the race. Boobs are definitely taking its shape more on the bottom then top. I'm still high and have that precise cut in the middle. Prior to putting on the scar cream scars have seem to diminish itself on its own and btw just to let you ladies know I have not been taking any vitamins . Every now and then I still take the Arnica .im still sleeping on my back on an incline, nipples are still sensitive but not as much as before. I'm able to extend my arms further . Other then that I can't wait until they fluff and drop ! Happy healing ladies!
The BioCornuem takes forever to dry gosh lol
Pain in my left Bobbie
I'm not sure what I did wrong but I have a slight muscle ache in my upper left boob. I have tried massaging it out but I feel it even when I'm done . I hope everything is okay and by tomorrow that it subsides .i don't have any muscle relaxers , just Tylenol . I'm going to take it easy. I hope all you ladies are enjoying your night .xoxox
Hey ladies I hope all is well! Greetings from Mariella and Gisella for they will be 1 month by Thursday! Yay. So far from my last update not much has changed. Scars seem like they are healing with the help of the scar treatment I'm using ( BioCornuem). I will post incision pics on my one month post op on Thursday. I will say that the twins give off and attract their own brand of energy from which I normally attract. I mean dudes are literally committing sin just to talk to me or get to know me. In a way I love to be in control and don't mind the attention until it gets to weird like the dude who wanted me to see that he had an erection because he was so infatuated with me. Clearly my boobs are still high and have a slant so I use certain bras to hide the shape . I don't show much cleavage yet because the skin is still shiny and doesn't move or jiggle . My skin has definitely been itching due to the stretching and the growing and I try not to scratch it. The birds aren't so angry as much but I have been getting turned on a little more easily and less aggravated lol. So I go and eat when I get to tense lol. So side note ladies to cheer you all up ;
Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting is an afrodisicia for me! I literally will cream my pants if I were to do Kegals continuously while eating it. I get a sense of rush, my oxytocin levels go up, my endorphins kick in ! It's basically unexplainable. It must be a moist cupcake with the right texture and color. I'm so sorry ladies but this unexplainable phenomenon has been occurring every time I eat them and can not be explained. All I know is it feels good and the guy (he was gay which made it less fun lol) at the bakery thought I was having a seizure while eating it and only to find out I was having an orgasm. So I know for sure to only eat them in the private confines out of the public eye lol. Well ladies I hope that was entertaining lol
Back to the boobies now. I found a bra at Target called "Beauty by Bali " no wire bra. Can I tell you it's amazing and it has no padding , it closes in the back which gives your body good exercise , so band and it holds the girls nicely. I purchased them for about $20 and in size 36D since they didn't have the 34D. I don't have any bra marks when I'm done and it's so comfortable. It comes in about 4-5 colors . Black, white, tan , turquoise and I believe gray. I would suggest to order it online and do in store pick up because it's cheaper.
1 month Anniversary !!!!!
Good morning my real self sexy ladies! Yesterday has marked my 1 month anniversary and what better way to celebrate then by going to my one month post op and celebrating with some Soul Food and Sangrias. So first thing is first, the doctor appointment went well , even though I felt rushed and saw a different plastic surgeon . He admired my societies work despite my circumstances of placing the implant in such a small and tight pocket . He dropped the bomb on me when he said and showed me that I needed to massage harder and that this process is not supposed to be comforting ( Ouch). This is going to be hard but I have to do so . Lol. Today will be the first day I try to lay on my side willingly and flat on my back. I got the approval as long as it's comfortable he said ok. My skin is still tight and it itches like crazy so I used lotions that are natural and for dry skin so that I won't get stretch marks and so the skin could grow with added nutrients . Light activity was given the green light but still no lifting of anything heavy. So basically just squeeze those girls and wait patiently for the fluff . Lol. The medical assistant spoke of jokes of me when out of recovery that had me laughing. Still wear the bras but it's okay to not wear it in the house . The incisions are healing at a pace , despite the cream taking forever to dry uggghhh but I'm a ride these wheels until it falls off. So right now I'm still riding high and tight but no rush . They have begun to become softer just a little but it's still tight , high and hard. So ladies down in Florida I will be visiting for a few days first week of October so pleas inbox me . Would love to kick it with you . Xoxoxo. Other then that things are good .
Boobies after dark
Good morning ladies ! This is Boobies after dark lol I decided to take some pictures while in bed and also show you ladies a short video on how I massage the twins. I can lay comfortable on my back but it seems my body is used to being a little inclined . Trying to sleep on my side can sometimes be very uncomfortable so I use one of my six pillows as a cushion for doing so. I still wake up with morning boob and I quickly massage them like a cat natural instincts are to lick their fur lol. So I also noticed that the left nipple is starting to point up from its downward point which means that this one is fluffing more and the skin is growing/stretching more. The right has some catching up to do and that's only because I'm right handed so more accuracy gets put into the right one. Incisions are healing but they itch sometimes or start to ache when I go to massage the boob if I stretch the skin to much .
I don't wear bras around the house anymore for now .lol
6 week mark!!
So far ladies Mariella and Gisella are still being stubborn with me but not as much. I can finally say my angry bird syndrome has gone away and can I tell you how thankful I am ! The twins have started to slope out some more shaping into the natural breast mode. I still massage every chance I get and last night I went out with no bra . I was very self conscious of the shape they hold but more so because their still high and stiff.
On a negative note I'm not happy with my scars at 6 weeks but there's still room for improvement . They seem a little raised up, the scar cream takes forever to dry this leaving a residue on my bra , I feel like one boob has a almost perfect thin line but the other one is a little off from thin. As I'm writing this I took two more pics of the incision site and I noticed that when I am not stretching my boob the incisions don't look that bad. On a positive note I do notice that the scars have moved farther over to the outside of the breast which indicates that the skin is growing to accommodate the breast implant. This is a very good sign because it means progress is being made. I do also notice that when I'm doing something such as hugging someone taller or doing an activity that requires my chest muscles, that I can feel the pressure or tightening of the muscle on the implant. So I decided to be a little more easy because my body is still getting use to the implant being there. I wonder if you ladies have been experiencing the same or any different .Other than that I really don't have any complaints except the fact that I'm still waiting for my breasts soften and fluff. The left boogie is definitely wining the race So the right one has some catching up to do . It's still early in the game and I would say by 4 months I should totally be good . Seems long for most but with my circumstances that's fairly good. Hope all is well with my RS ladies . Keep the support and love for one another coming. Xoxo
Hey ladies I'm so sorry that Me , Mariella and Gisella kept you all hanging! We have missed out on a lot and have some catching up to do but please do know I miss you ladies for the most. I want to start off by saying congrats to all the ladies that have recently gone under and have made it back over to the other side. I wish you all a happy and speedy recovery process . For the ladies getting ready to go under soon my prayers and best wishes are there for you . Last but not least to all my ladies that are in the healing phase of fluff and drop , much continued massages, drinking of water , taking of vitamins, patience and tolerance lol. We all know we need those and some of us prayers to as well.
There's been so much going on between work, personal family issues, grandma being sick in the hospital and still there recovering, looking for new apartment or condo, saving up for a car , constantly on the quest of lobster tails and cocktails( which I have to curtail because I need to save more lol) being exhausted from work and just living life. Keep her in your prayers for me she hasn't even reached 70 yet.
Now on to Mariella and Gisella. I find myself sleeping to much on my side to the point I'm almost on my stomach. It's kind of uncomfortable sometimes so I quickly roll over. I still do my massages but not as often as I should like early every morning. I make sure to use my scar cream but man it takes for ever to dry and it wines up staining my bras , the expensive and inexpensive ones to . They have become softer but not soft enough. As far as dropping goes they have done so to because they don't sit at the top of my neck anymore thank God. I made 2 months October 12th and I will on my way to 3 months soon. I take a guess that by December January I should have reached my high peak of fluff and drop. I will continue to massage more often . My nipples don't get as hard as they use to and for a minute my sensitity was lost but I regain it back. They jiggle somewhat when I bend over . I will say that I wish I could have gone bigger but my doctor said it wouldn't be the best idea for me health wise and what not. They seem a little big and when fitted I fall under 34C ( full C small D 34D). All I wear is non wire bras and for a second I'm like dang they are hard to find sometimes and in the sexy formats without having to spend dozens of dollars lol. Other then that no pain, no sore or tenderness. I don't get the morning boob anymore I just want the fluff and drop lol. Side note , my left is dropping and fluffing more because I'm right handed and I try to add more massages and pressure to match the consistency of the right hand and left boob.
4 month shy update
Hey ladies it's been a while since I last spoke to you! I'm finally dropping and fluffing, slowly but surely. So far I'm liking my boob job except for the scarring and the sharp shooting pain I get in my nerve under my left breast. The pain happens once or twice in one day and may not appear until days later or the next day. I'm still monitoring what causes it . I have been trying to drink a lot of water and I have started smoking hookah every now and then but that's about it. My breast feel so soft when I bend over and the breast hang but when sitting or standing up straight my breast feel hard somewhat. I guest the skin still has some stretching to do. I feel like BioCorneum is a waste of money for anyone who is my skin complexion or has a lot of melanin in their skin. First and foremost the gel takes to long to dry and it stains my bras (even after washing there is still a slight residue of it left there). My scars seem to have gotten a little darker and a little raised . Isn't the scar gel supposed to help with that? Yes but idk in my case it isn't really helping so I'm seeking other scar treatments like the Scar away silicone sheets and kelecote. Please ladies if you have used something else or know of someone that has used something effective please let me know. I don't sleep with bras on at night but during the day I wear one while at work or out for the most part lol. I put a video together for you ladies and on my 4 month anniversary 12/14/14 I will post comparison pics up of me compared to my previous months. Try ladies later!
Happy New year
11 Jan 2015
5 months post
Happy New Years ladies! I must say 2014 has been a challenging and exciting year. January 12th will make 6 months for me and I can honestly say I am not happy about my decision as we speak . The reasons why ( I can't wait to see my PS again) are as follows: my breast feel so firm but yet when I lean or bend over they feel sort soft and somewhat squishy,
PS said that I have tight pec muscles along with tight skin so it will take me a while to heal
I massage them but they are still firm and I'm wondering if maybe something's wrong
My scar slightly keloid and minus the fact that I spent all that money on the Biocorneum scar gel , it did nothing for my scar. It's kind of dark and definitely more visible then it was when it was still new which is strange.
I do understand that my chest was tight and I have these strong pecs and skin but shouldn't it have gotten softer by now. I'm disappointed for now and I hope that by my next appointment I will be more enthusiastic .
Other then that I'm good . I just wish my boobs felt softer then they are...I buy whatever type of bra that's cute but if it has a wire I just simply remove it lol. Damn fluff hasn't come yet. The struggles
Is been a while! 7 month update
28 Mar 2015
7 months post
Hey ladies hope all has been well! So I've been so busy with so many things since the last we spoke. I had a death in my family, I went back to school and I also have been working along with a project I'm focusing on. I can say as of now I'm not happy with my results. My breast are still way to firm and my scar looks darker then it was in the beginning stages of healing. I have tried the bio corneum and that did nothing for me , I repeat NOTHING BUT WASTE MY MONEY. I then have tried the scar guard and while I can't really say it lighten my scar as much as I would have liked to see it , I can say that it definitely flattened the scar so I can at least be satisfied about that! At 7 months they look smaller then I thought they would have looked and I kind of want them bigger lol. What I want mostly is for them to soften up. They have dropped more since my last update and I can say got a tad bit softer but wth? Why haven't they soften up still some more yet? If I go to the gym or do any workouts at home I try not to do any upper body workouts that would possibly slow down my softening process. I've been praying to the fluff goddess to make them softer . They are also so perky to lol. I posted a video of how they look standing, from the side , bottom , top and laying down. I squeeze them so you can see their texture and movement . Any suggestions ladies ? I'm open to them.
Happy NEw Year!!!
Hey ladies and Happy New Year to all. I know it's been a while but I've been so busy. So first let me start off by saying my worst fears were actually real! I will be getting a revision in May due to capsular in both breast! It really sucks but I knew something was wrong with the girls because they were just too firm and even over a year later I couldn't understand that until I finally went to see my PS and he confirmed my worst fear. Not sure why it happened but I can't wait to get it fixed . Here are some pics below so you can see. As you will see in the pics the boobies sit high up. As a reminder I went with 450 cc high profile mentor. Before size was a A after size was a full C / small D. Most of my bras are size D however depending on some cuts and brands I manage to wear a C. Most of my bras like Provacatuer, Chantelle , La Perla, Wacoal are size D along with Victoria secrets as well. The boobies are very firm to touch and have a very circular odd shape rather then round. I rarely wear a shirt without a bra due to the abnormal shape it gives off when viewed from the side. From the front it looks fine just perky but with hardly no movement it's easy to spot that they are fake lol. I can not wait to get these Boobs revised because vacations are coming up shortly and I want to look normal again.
