23 Years Old, No Children, Petite Frame. 300cc High Profile Mentor Memory Gel Implants Used Bilaterally - Venice, FL
Hi! Today is the day of my surgery! I was operated...
Ever since I was young, I've dreamed of having...
Ever since I was young, I've dreamed of having fuller breasts. My preop bra size is 32B. I finally had the opportunity to get breast implants! I had my consultation on March 2016, and my surgery was May 26, 2016.
At my consultation, I described what I wished to have to my plastic surgeon. I wanted much fuller breasts, but not to look like a "porn star." He took many measurements of both breasts and explained that he wouldn't use an implant lower than 250cc, and wouldn't go any higher than 300cc due to my petite frame. I of course decided to go with the largest of his recommendation of 300cc, and chose silicone over saline implants. I have done much research online, and silicone seems to be the best option for me.
We also decided to go with an inframammary incision, and under the muscle placement. My doctor used 300cc High Profile Mentor Memory Gel Implants.
Yesterday, May 26th at 8AM was my surgery, and everything went well! I only remember rolling into the operating room, having the gas mask placed over my face, and saying my face felt tingly. The next thing I knew, I was in the recovery room with my mom and boyfriend waiting for me. At this point in time, I wasn't in any "pain." I just felt a lot of pressure and tightness. I kept falling in and out of sleep. I was able to go home as soon as I successfully used the bathroom. Once I got home, I relaxed in my recliner and had my mom and boyfriend with me to do everything that I needed. I was still very groggy and was falling in and out of sleep until about eight pm.
I am writing this now at 7am on Day 2 of recovery. Last night I didn't get very much sleep. I can only sleep on my back, and could not get comfortable as I am used to seeping on my stomach. I find that being propped up feels a little better, but during sleep I slid down my pillows. At about 3AM I woke up with some discomfort, and took one of my pain medications which seemed to help. I will write more later on in the day! Any questions are welcome! I'll also post some more pictures of different angles.
Morning of Day 3
Morning of Day 4!
My left breast is definitely sitting significantly higher than my right. Preopoeratively, my left breast was slightly smaller than my right, so I assume that could be why.
Anyway, I am still so excited that I finally had this done - still in disbelief actually. I still feel that this recovery is going very smoothly for me as well. I'll post some pictures that I took this morning as well.
I'll try to post an update tonight as today I will be getting out of the house to a family get together for the first time since surgery!
My left breast/nipple are still numb, but have improved. There's also a vibrating sensation in my left breast that started yesterday afternoon - it doesn't hurt, but it's a weird feeling.
I'm still taking my pain meds.. if I don't, my breasts just feel like they are really tight and tender. My incisions look great!
So, I'm going through a little bit of boob greed, I guess you can call it. I just envisioned my breasts being bigger after my surgery. My boyfriend and friends/family say that they are "huge/big on me." I've just read that I will lose some size because of the swelling, and I don't want to regret spending so much money on myself and not have the result that I had hoped for. Sigh, I just hope I'm going through an emotional thing, and that I will be pleased in the end. I started out loving them, and now I'm going through this.
I'll post more tomorrow! :)
