BA Coming Up! -New Zealand
Finally after 4 children, and putting their...
Biggest worry I have are my two dogs. I normally walk them 5km each day so they will probably get fat and bloated too while I recover lol!
I've decided not to tell anyone prior. It's really none of anyone's business and I'm a big girl now and don't need their approval or comments if they disagree, although I'm sure my daughters will have something to say afterwards. Hey, it's their fault I need this anyway - mommy breast fed the youngest for 2 years!
I was lying by the pool today thinking about what fun I'm going to have buying new bras and bikinis. Daren't buy anything until afterwards as I really have no idea at this stage.
I hate the waiting...
2 more sleeps!
Next photos I put up will be the real deal, wish me luck!
At long last
I met with PS yesterday morning to finalise "my look". Original plan was to go over the muscle however PS decided that a dual plane would be best for me given that there wasn't a lot of breast tissue to work with. One of my concerns was that any implant would be visible so I was very pleased to not have to worry about that. After my consult I had till mid afternoon to chill out and relax before I had to be back at the hospital. Surgery was supposed to be at 5pm however due to another health issue Medical staff decided to make me last on the list for the day, however I completely understood their reasoning. My room was more like a 5 star hotel so there was no real hardship. Finally got trundled off to theatre around 7pm. The anaesthetist let me know that as surgery was only going to take an hour they would only give me what was necessary to put me to sleep, thereby reducing unpleasant side effects. And that was the last I knew.
About 8.30 they woke me up and showed me the results, not that I can remember seeing anything! Then got wheeled back to my room and my amazing nurse made me a coffee with a couple of plain biscuits. Truly felt like I was in heaven. Couldn't believe how hungry I was and managed to eat a full dinner an hour later.
I didn't sleep very well, but that was more from being upright (I'm a side sleeper) than any discomfort. Seemed to just doze from hour to hour. Felt a bit nauseous around midnight but my nurse immediately gave me something to take so I didn't have to put up with that for very long.
I was able to shower in the morning which was good because I was painted a delightful shade of pink from the neck down to my navel! I do have thick tape across the top of my boobs to keep the implants down, and also underneath covering the incisions, so seem to have these two nipples peeking out from between saying "let me out" lol. I think the tape is going to be the worst and will start irritating me soon. I don't see my PS until Monday so have to keep it all on till then. No special bra to wear after all, not sure I could fit one on over all the tape anyway. I also don't have to massage but have been advised to push my boobs together for a minute a couple of times a day just to help create my much wanted cleavage. It all just seems to be too easy at this stage. I have been taking my meds every 4 hours so I haven't had any real pain, more just a heaviness on my chest and my lower ribs are a bit tender. Managed to go shopping for a couple of hours once I left the hospital this morning and got home by lunchtime. I've had a quiet afternoon but did go for a 10 minute walk around the neighborhood just to keep moving. I've made dinner and will have an early night and try and catch up on some of the sleep I've missed out on over the last few days.
No photos yet but will get to that. Hope everyone else is coping well. Thinking of you all and hope you're all feeling as happy as I am!
3 days post op & feeling good

I have had my post op consult with PS and he has removed all the wide tape from above and below breasts - oh the relief from that, I felt so much more comfortable afterwards! So far everything is healing nicely and I don't have to see him again for another month.
I'm 5'8 115 lbs and had 240cc moderate dual plane. This surprisingly has taken me from a 32a to a d/dd cup. My goal was to be a full c so I got more value for my money and I'm not complaining as even at this stage it looks very natural. Husband loves my new look which is great as he wasn't keen for me to have it done in the first place. The girls are somewhat firm at this stage but I expect them to soften up over the next couple of months with the dropping and fluffing. Will add photos soon
The best thing I've ever done for myself!
I also weakened and bought a couple of lacy bras I couldn't resist. I'm pretty sure the swelling is almost gone now so I don't think I'm going to change in size too much, maybe just shape. Can't wait till I can wear them. It's wonderful being able to bypass all of the padded bras in the shops. Hubby says that this BA is going to cost way more than what I paid my PS! Loving it...

PS has made me feel very comfortable and is very aware and agreeable to the look I want, which is very natural. I don't want lots of forward projection and size has been determined by wanting more volume and some cleavage (yay!) I'm wanting to go from a 32a to a 32c so am having 240 cc moderate profile silicone implants. Mr Davis has been very honest and informative about what was going to be best for me. Emails have been answered quickly and he is always available to address concerns. He talked me through every step of the process and made sure that I understood everything. I really felt that he wanted what was best for me and the end result is exactly what I was hoping for.
