Im thinkin about 400-450cc mod plus profile under muscle. Of course im nervous. I know a lot of girls wish they would have went bigger but i dont want it to be the focal point. I want it to go with my body that i work hard for. A natural look. Im usually in gym clothes but when i wear normal clothes i want to feel more confident. I use to have bigger boobs but lost them when i lost body fat. I had a full C and that would have been perfect to keep.
1 week pre
I domt feel nervous yet but i did have a dream that i got my surgery and my implants were trying to flip haha. Mayb because i keep looking at stuff and reading stories on here. Im ready for mext friday!
Few hrs post off
21 Oct 2016
Day of treatment
Well i just got home. Pain isnt too bad just constant pressure. I basically dressed myself and the nurse said i was acting like i hadnt even had surgery. I rated my pain 2/10. Im sure itll increase with time. Doc ended uo going w 450cc. I dont want to judge them bc i know they will def drop but right now they r at my collarbone. Right now im in the recliner and just relaxing. Just got a lot of stiffness.
24 hrs post
It's been a little over 24hrs and i am feeling pretty good. I have a little more soreness today but no real pain. Im staying on top of my meds every 4 hrs (hydro). I have a muscle relaxer to take at night. The doc recommended that for me bc i have thick pecs from working out and she said it would help w muscle spasms. She also gave me stuff for nausea but thankfully i havent had any of that. Only time i felt kinda blah was when i was gettin dressed after surgery but bot like i was goin to get sick. I do beleive making myself eat soup yesterday evening helped. I wasnt hungry but i knew i needed to eat. I slept in the recliner yesterday and night. That went well. Im sure the meds help w that bc im usually a stomach/side sleeper. I havent had really any pain. Im just more sore in my arm pits today. My incisions arent sore. Ive been moving my arma around slowly just to keep from being so tight. Doc said i could do anything that doesnt hurt.
I went into the surgery thinking ok its just goin to be really sore not painful for recovery and so far thats really all that i have experienced, is soreness. So ladies go in with a positive mind set. Ive read w different reviews some ppl needed to be fed or wiped and couldnt move around. U can, its jist how your mindset is and how u take the soreness. I workout daily and im notmally sore on the daily. Yes this is intensified but it is a lot better than i was thinking it would be ! :)
Day 2 post op
So today is the most pain i have felt. Nothing bad like a 3/10. I feel it mainly in my R boob and armpit. Kinda a little pain and a little burning sensation. I have some tightness but i dont feel like i have as much as before. I got to shower today yay. I felt kinda warn out afterwards lol but it was easy bc i have already been doin range of motion exeecises with my arms and im able to put my hair in a pony tail. I just go slow and make sure i dont hurt myself. I took some pictures today and i feel like ny boobs look a lit bigger in the pics. Again, im not judging them yet bc they got a lot of dropping and fluffing to do. Im still taking my meds as recommended. Thankfully i still havent felt sick ir anything but last night i rode around w my friend just to get out of the house and let me tell u, u will notice every single tiny bump lol. The ride didnt last long bc it started making me feel blah. But it was nice to get out and move around. So this morning ive just sitting on the porch enjoying listening to the bird's. Im about to ice my boobs and prob take a nap. Hopefully my pain does not increase. I did feel a little tighter when i 1st woke up i guess thats the morning boob ppl talk about
Day 3 post
Today i woke up and felt some pressure but ive been sleeping in the recliner so i just sat up a little for the last hour of sleep so my body could get use to it. I felt fine getting up and i got myself ready to go find a bra for myself since i go back to work tomorrow. I just got a few sporta bras bc my booba have a lot or changing to do. The 1st few i tried on like smashed my boobs and i was like omg they r huge lol. Especially trying to fit a bra around them. I tried on about 4 different ones and got the loose one. Afterwards i started hurting around my incision site on the L side and i felt warn out. It's the most ive done in the last few days. Im still taking my meds and my head felt kinda spacey just walking around the store. I came home and iced ny boobs and took a nap. I woke up feeling better without any pain so thats good. I cant really tell a differe9w my boobs today but ill load a pic anyways. All in all ive barely had any pain so that makes me happy
So today i had to return back to work. I only had to be there for 4 hours but during that 4 hours it was either the walking or the bra that made my boobs hurts. Probably a combo. I walked slow and the bra is loose. I had to drive & it's about 20 min both ways. The driving wasnt bad at all. When i got home i couldnt wait to take off ny bra. I had like a stinging feeling in my R boob above ny nipple and also the L side of my back by my armpit. I iced and relaxed the rest lf the day. I very bloated amd i thin that is causing me not to feel that well this afternoon. I think my L boob is goin to drop before my R but we will see. I dont really care aa long as they end up pretty without any complications, then ill be happy! My boobs r still looking huge especially in the sports bra!
Day 6 post op apt
This morning i went to my post op apt. Everything is looking good and she showed me my massages. Im juat sore and randomly have a little bit of pain in my R boob likr a stinging and every now and then my R tricep catches & it's like a pulling... very aggravating. I stopped takin my pain meds yesterday. I didnt go to work yesterday bc i had a bad headache and was getting dizzy. That never happens so since ive stoped taking my meds i have felt better. It didnt help w the soreness or stinging anyways. so just got to give it time. They arent as swollen and high as they were so thats good. All in all everything is goin well and just got to deal w the soreness & wait.
End of day 8
So today was super busy. Went on a hay ride, pumpkin patch, arcade place. It was basically a good day. I wore a sprots bra today which is the 2nd time i have tried it and it was a lot better than least time. Last time i had it on for about 5 hrs max & i was miserable. Today was much more tolerable. I ached but not really pain just like lingering aches. Except on the hay ride it was a lot more agrivating. Then at the end of the night, at the arcade place, i thought i was goin to get hit in the face w a ball so i tensed up to try to protect myself and my goodness that hurt. But it went away shortly. So basically i had a day full of soreness. Thankfully, wearing a sports bra was much better. I do believe i am a little more sore bc of the massages i have to do. I was thinking and the soreness today was a close compare to a brutal chest workout. I just havent done one of those in a while bc my chest muscles are my fastest growing muscles.
My pre op my doc said i could probably work at my 2nd job on saturdays, which is bartending, by the end of week one. Yes i prob could but i def wouldnt want to. So i am glad i have another 6 days to heal before i go back to that. Im confident ill be feeling much better then. Without the constant aches and soreness.
Today i was looking on IG and im so ready to get back in the gym but know i need more time to heal. Mayb by the end of next week i can start w lower body stuff!
Day 11 post op
I worked out today! Just a little bit but it went well! After work i walked a mile then did different variations of lunges and squats. I can def tell it's been almost 2 weeks since i worked out so it felt good! Everyday i feel like im losing more muscle lol but it'll be ok. I havent taken any medicine the last few days & i feel good! Some soreness sometimes but not constant. No pains or lingering aches. My boobs r more round and i love them more everyday. I still think they will be perfect size for me especially once my stomach goes back down and i can workout like i want. They r getting softer amd slowly dropping.
I feel like i could do very light bicep curls and tricep push downs but we will see how these leg workouts go and slowly get back into it!
2 wks post & working out
Im so ready to get back to working out but im patiently waiting. Ive done very light leg work. Around Tuesday i did some stuff outside and i def felt that. Not really pain but i could feel it in my chest and back, just tightness & uncomfortable. So took a day off then i went to the gym and walked on the treadmill for 30 min. The highest incline i went was 8 at 3mph. Then i did some leg stuff. Leg extension, leg curl, and AB/AD machine. All very light and nothing i had to hold on to or strain. I only did 50 reps at 20lbs. I didnt want to over do it, bc i almost did last time, so kept it short to see how i felt later and i felt great. So the next gym sesh i did 100 reps on those 4 exercises. I felt good later that night and no extra tightness or pain. In general i just have tightness now.
My boobs have dropped a good bit and swelling is down but they still have a lot more to move. Ive started to lay on my side a bit. Still got to be careful bc if i lay too much itll hurt my incision and when laying on my L side if i go to far the inside of my R boob hurts.
When i wore a sports bra all day, Wednesday i think, my boobs felt so sore and itchy. But once i took it off i felt much better. All in all im feeling pretty good.
Yesterday was the 1st day ive baretended since my surgery. I could def tell the extra weight from standing for hours. Ive worked daily in a nursing home but could sit down when ever i wanted basically. Overall i just have a little bit of tightness. I feel like im heeling well just got to keep patience. It feels a lot longer than 3 weeks. Im definately missing the gym. This week i went up to 30lbs on the leg machines and i tried dumbell bicep curls with 5lbs x 30 reps and that was fine.
Last saturday (wk 2) i went to a wedding and danced. I didnt think anything of it until i woke up in the middle of the night with some pain from all that bouncing i guess.
My 2nd post op apt is this Thursday! Boobs r still dropping but got a lot to go still.
1 month post
Had my 1 month check up. Everything is goin well. Doc cleared me for goin back and doing whatever i want to in the gym. Basically just listen to my body and dont go too heavy. I went friday night and went up to 135lbs on squats but didnt rack the weight. The heaviest i loaded was a 10lb. I did a few arm things w 5lbs just to see how that felt. Just dont want to push my upper body too fast.
I still havent bought a real bra but im goin to get a sports bra with more support. My doc gave me 1 more stretch to do, pushing them up.
Ive been feeling pretty good and just a little bit of soreness. I can tell my pec muscles are healing and getting stronger. So ready to not feel like ive had the surgery.
