27 Year Old 4'10" 108 Lb Finally Getting the Boobs I Want =) - Round Rock, TX
Silicone implants 400 cc HP on both under muscle....
Day 1: I had my surgery done @ 7 am. Dr Kerr and the all the other Dr's. that worked on me did an excellent job. =) I honestly don't remember much thay day. What I do remember is waking up at home in LOTS of pain. Any simple movements, it'll hurt. I needed help using the bathroom (pretty much helping me pull my underwear and shorts up). I also needed help getting out of bed.
Day 2-3 I was still in A LOT of pain so I kept up with my pain meds, muscle relaxer, & antibiotics. I had my post op appt today & is doing great so far :) I can now move my arms just a bit without any pain and get out of bed without the help of my husband. My boobs are still riding high and tight. It's so great to know I can email my doctor at any time of day and receive an email back. Super bloated today :(
Day 4: I was able to take a shower with the help of my lovely husband. I am still super bloated. Been drinking prune juice and taking stool softener to help me go. I am still taking all meds prescribed to me as I have very low pain tolerance. I can walk around more and do things but I do get very tired still. My chest is still super tight .
Day 5: yayyyy!!! Finally usex number 2!!! All that prune juice and stool softener helped. Boobs are still very heavy. :(
Day 6: I was able to go out and walk around at the store today. I noticed I was getting shortness of breath, tight chest, so we cut that store visit short. I'm not sure if this is normal but I'm def going to be asking my Dr. I'm also unsure if I'm wearing the right size sports bra that has the amount of support I need.
Day 9 & 10
Boobs are feeling softer and I'm beginning to love it as the days pass. I still have my incision covered, the tape the Dr used still hasn't fallen off yet so I have no idea how it looks.
Lately I have been having the hardest time going to sleep :( I HATE just having to sleep on my back lol. It's so sore :(
Day 10: Woke up this morning feeling great again. I'm so glad things are getting easier and easier as days pass. I feel happier, I just feel great. I love it! I missed feeling this way. I love waking up to my new set of twins. ??? I can't wait to see the final progress, I'm sure that's a gonna be awhile lol.
A little about myself
Anyway, we moved away from home because my husband joined the Army. For the two years we have been here, I have thought about getting breast augmentation. I did my research but I never went along with it. Finally I had the courage to ask my husband and to my surprise, he supported me. He wanted me to be happy and if getting my boobs done did that, he'd let me do it.
I stumbled across Dr. Kerr and RS and started to research more about him, read reviews, looked at before and after photos. I liked what I saw & made an appt. The staff at Synergy were amazing. Met with Dr. Kerr the day of my consultation appt and instantly felt comfortable with him that I decided that he was the one that will do my surgery & til this day, I have no regrets of my decision. He's great about getting back to me (literally he's just an email away) he responds right away and answers any questions I may have. I love it! He's an amazing, intellegent, gifted surgeon.
I'm currently 17 days post op and so far, I'm happy with the results. I can't wait to see how my boobs look at the end result. Thanks to Dr. Kerr, I now feel comfortable with my own body. I will be def going back to him when I decide to get my Tummy tuck done in the future :)
Day 18 ?
My boobs feel sore, but once I massage it, it feels so much better. My nipples and around the scar area feels numb still. I emailed my Dr yesterday and was given an Ok to sleep on my side and I'm sleeping better now. It still feels weird though so i use a pillow to support my boobs. I use to wake up with aches and pain frm sleeping on my back all the time lol.
Anyway, my scars doesn't look so bad, but feels bumpy. I really hope it goes down and doesn't turn into a keloid scar which I'm prone to get :( I've been applying ScarAway repair gel and the silicone sheet on it so, I can only hope it'll work wonders.
5 weeks update =) boob greed?
I have my 1 month checkup on Monday & is hoping Dr will give an Ok to workout lol. I miss my treadmill lol & well, being it's Thanksgiving, you know I'm grubbing on tons of food lol.
My scars are looking a lot better. Thank God! I'm still using the ScarAway gel and the silicone sheets on them. My nipples are very sensitive that it kinda hurts when its touched. I really hope it returns back to normal soon.
Can't wait til I can start running again =)
Boob update: yay for not waking up with those sore morning boobs!!! Scar on my left is less visible than the one on my right. They're feeling softer and softer each day. =) I love it.
I've been going clothes shopping like crazy. Lol. I thought I would go bra shopping more but I'm waiting til the next victoria secret annual sale coming up this month lol. (Can't wait!! =) )
Today, I decided to try on a few of my old dresses I owned, pretty much going through my closet to see what fits and what doesn't. I'm sad to see some of my fav tops go :(
8 weeks update
Anyway, I can finally run/jog for 2 miles (yay!) Now I have 1 more mIle to go til I get back to where I get back to where I was (3 miles daily). I'm so excited :)
I had a few that asked about before pics. Sadly, I don't have one. But I did find some with clothes on. You can def tell I didn't have much there to start off with.
I had an AMAZING experience at Synergy Plastic Surgery. From the moment I walked in the office, I instantly felt welcomed. Front office ladies are always cheerful, greeting with smiles. I must say, this is by far the best customer service in ALL Dr office I've been to (Both CA & TX) You can tell, they all love what they do. So thank you ladies for making me feel welcomed! :) Scheduling was easy & wait time for appt is usually no longer than 5 mins. I was in and out in no time. I found out about Dr. Kerr on this website & I am so glad that I did. I was able to read awesome reviews, view before and after photos, read about his training, etc. I liked what I saw and decided to make a consultation appt & lucky me, I got to meet him that day. First thing that came to mind was, "wow, he's young" lol, but that didn't stop me from choosing him. He's very intellectual, knows all his stuff and explained the procedure in no rush. He and Vlasta were both easy to talk to, both listened and answered whatever the questions I had. They also provided their email so I can contact them when needed, which they are both quick to respond back. The day of surgery- Dr. Kerr and his surgery crew were absolutely amazing! I was so nervous that morning and the moment I walked in the surgery center, once again, greeted with smiles, they made me laugh, talked to me to help calm me down and they all just made me feel at ease. I don't remember much that day, but what I do remember is emailing Dr. Kerr that night and he immediately called me back (took time out his busy schedule) to check up on how I was doing, which was a huge plus because not a lot of Dr will do that. Overall I am very pleased with Dr. Kerr and his staff. Dr. Kerr- You are amazing & great at what you do! You are one very talented/gifted plastic surgeon. Thank you for giving me the boobs I've always wanted :) I am one month post op and a could not be more happy with my results so far & the care I received. I highly recommend him!
