Initially, I wanted a transaxillary incision so there would be no scarring around my breasts. My second choice was areolar incision-there was no way I wanted a huge scar underneath my breast. Dr. Williams explained why it would be best for me to have an inframammary incision, and because I trusted her judgement and as mentioned loved her work-I agreed. Silicon inframammary--going for a full yet natural-looking C from a small B.
On the day of surgery I was very anxious. The NWPS staff did a great job putting my mind at ease and making me comfortable. I do not remember being wheeled into surgery-I just became relaxed and happy, and the next thing I know I'm awake with boobs :)
They showed me a picture of myself and I could not believe it was me. I thought it was the picture I brought Dr. Williams to show her what I wanted to look like. I kept asking if it was me and asked to see the picture 3 times. The ride home was the most painful part of the experience. Every little bump bothered me-but nothing unbearable. I got home, took an hour nap, and was up chatting with my friend (who stayed with me for the next 24 hours) the rest of the day. I kept up with my pain meds and set alarms during the night so I wouldnt wake up in pain. I was never in a lot of pain. I was just sore and knew not to move around too much/use my arms. I took it easy over the next three days. Returning to work was fine-the only issue I had were the nerves. One nipple was completely numb and the other hypersensitive. I was always aware of my breasts during the first week. I could always feel them. After the first week the nerves settled down. The only issue I have now is that my nipples are raw. I'm not sure if that's because they are over sensitive/my bra was initially too big after my swelling went down. I was surprised at how soft they became in such a short amount of time. Directly after the surgery my skin was very tight and they were very hard. Now, 3 weeks later they are very soft. When I took off my bandage covering my incision I was pleasantly surprised. I expected to see large puffy purple scars but instead they were my same skin color and smaller than I expected. Now that my implants are settling you cannot see them.
For my Xmas gift my boyfriend took me shopping. I hate shopping-I go into the dressing room with a hundred things and come out with 3 because nothing fits. When I came out I asked if I had a limit-everything I took in there fit and it felt so good to put on a shirt or a dress and feel curvy and confident.
I don't feel like I have to get really dressed up or wear really tight shirts to look good now.
I was pretty hesitant to do this because a) I didn't hate my small boobs-I just thought it would be nice to have larger breasts b) it was out of my price range. However, I'm beyond satisfied with the results and glad I didn't wait any longer. I could not be happier with the way the procedure went, the results, or Dr. Williams and her staff.
