All done! Day 1, 5 hours post op
2 Aug 2016
Day of treatment
The whole thing was an hour, I saw the clock was 1pm last & then I woke up by myself so well rested & happy at 2pm!!
Have had zero pain, just feeling stiff in the chest area & a little bit similar to an after workout muscle stretch in my right arm.
Not sure how I will be tomorrow but so far, couldn't ask for anything better than this!
First time general anesthesia & no nausea.
What I learned today is around the neck pillow is a must,
Day 3 post op
Smooth recovery, skipping pain killers here & there & when I take it, it's more for the stiffness & pressure that I feel.
Don't judge the picture please! looks a bit off, but they look much better. Only when I extend my arm to take a selfie (& with all the tapes my PS has put for extra support) they look different.
Still wanted to capture the healthy, no bruise situation :)
Can't wait to take the extra tapes off & have someone take the picture to share with you girls!
Day 12 post op
Just tried on my Small size bralette, happy to see it doesn't fit well!!
Recovering well, will start driving & going to work tomorrow.
But a couple Lululemon Ta Ta Tammer to wear at work, as my nipples show too much with the bra my doctor gave me! Can't wait for them to become softer & hopefully settle & fluff more similarly. Kind of want to stop them from dropping past this point (main reason I went with smaller implants too as I don't like sagging breasts that can hold a pencil under their folds!!)

Very smooth recovery, from week 7 I started to feel the implants have always been there/part of my body!
I'd say I benefited from choosing smaller (300cc) implants, from recovery perspective as well as hopefully no future complications (such as Capsular Contracture).
My favorite part:
Best scar I could ask for as soon as I saw them on week 4, and also the perky look & feel of the Ideal implants.
Little bit concern about asymetry, but I had mild one already.
Also not sure why in some picture they are smaller? They are perfect size for me :)
