I haven't had my procedure yet but I have my pre-op tomorrow. I went to one other dr in the VA Beach area and he was awesome, said he'd do anything I wanted, even when I said I wanted 700cc's. When I went to Hubbard he told me the implications of going that big that fast and he said you can do 700cc's but he wouldn't be the one to do them. He was more concerned with my safety then just telling me what I wanted to hear. So we're going to do 525cc's and then if I still feel I want to go bigger, at a later date, I would be able to tell if my body can handle bigger. I am very sadisfied with Hubbard. Will update after my pre-op.

Expect pain!

I did so much research on BA and I don't remember anyone mentioning how painful this procedure is! My doctor did tell me I had a lot of muscle and I went sub pectoral. So he had to cut through a lot of muscle. Omg I'm in so much pain!! I can't hardly do anything for myself I think it'll be worth it. So yes def be sure u want this procedure done for all the right reasons...for u! I'm not sure of if this was worth it as it takes ur boobs a good six months to fully settle. I went 550 in the right and 530 in the left.
Oh!! And make sure to take Colace/laxative if you're taking pain meds. U will get blocked up and it will make things so much worse with trying to make urself feel better.
No pictures out of respect to my finance.

Still pretty painful moving arms too much. Today I did dishes but I still have to move pretty slow. I had to take myself off the pain meds. They hurt my stomach too much and blocked me up. So doing it the all natural way. I still get really sharp pains in my left side. They look like they're dropping and my fiancé says they look REALLY good. Idk how people r driving afterwards; pretty painful being up too long. But the gravity doesn't hurt near as much as it did the first two days post op.

One week post op I think it was noticeably better. The pain does subside more and more each day but day 7 is the golden day, for me. I was able to walk around with more comfort but on day 8 I was pretty sore. I feel fabulous today, day 9, and am able to stretch and it feels amazing. I just cannot lay on my side yet, so sleeping is still pretty rough...and cuddling with my fiancé. I don't think I'd do it again but love my results and am so happy with the outcome. I also started my exercises one week post op, which should not be hard or painful.
