Met with the doctor yesterday and it seemed really positive. Still a tiny bit nervous that they are going to yet again be an expensive mistakes. But I feel good about it. Surgery is set for 2/22/12. Deposit is placed. Going to add some volume and go over the muscle.

My surgery is in 2 days. When I met with the surgeon we decided to add ~300cc. I didn't know what my current implants were. I asked at my call in, and they were 425, 430! I had no idea they were that large. One of my major problems is the hanging sock. I searched on here 700cc just to get an idea of what an implant would like and found a lot of doctors saying an implant that large could quickly cause *more* sagging and complications. I called and said I was nervous to go that big, but I also don't want an anchor scar. I realize I'm asking for the moon. But I just don't know what to do. If I let him put the big implant in will I just have all this awful hanging again quickly? I really can't afford this again.

so 2 days pot surgery. I just got changed from my body armor of surgical tape into a kinda loose fitting bra. We did go smaller with the implants and I really felt like the DR listened to my last minute freak out. I was driving the next day as a tragedy for my kid is missing a sports class.
We went with 659 over the muscle silicone by natrelle. Next Dr's appointment is March 1st (my birthday. Gonna snap a pic in a minute, even though you can't see anything.

I'm 12 days out. The worst part has been those drains. I hated them so much. They were painful and suck. I'm overall happy. We went with 659cc. I think they are a little big , and they have ripples. I do like them though.

About a month out now. My nipples have been so tender that fabric running across them has been painful. Hope that calms down! Still waiting for the bandages to fall off so can see the scat sitch. Left breast is lower, I called the doctor as between that and the weird noises it made at the beginning I was worried Either the pocket was too big or I was having encapsulation in the right one. Also some of the pain was getting worse not better.
They just never called me back, at all.

looked under the bandages. The scars look really awesome. I am very pleased. where one of the tubes came out there is a red streak extending about 1.5 inches down my body. That's kinda not cool. Overall I'm happy.

They called me back (a week later about my concerns) and made an appointment for the next Wednesday. Ended up a conflict with one of my kids games so I need to set a diffrent appointment, but it made me happy that they called. The scars under the breast from the tubes really suck, but I think the nipple scars are great. I think they aren't even, but it's not awful. Some rippling. Updating 5 week boobs.

Went in for my 3 month check up. Doctor (and staff) were awesome. I am going back to get a fat transfer to cover the rippling. Not the doctors fault, I just didn't have enough skin/fat to cover the implant. He is doing it as part of the package. Very nice.
I think all my worries I had scars/hardness were just part of the healing process.

I wasn't charged for him to try to repair the boob job he did, but it came out awful.
