390 mentor anatomical implants under muscle with periareola lift
I'm a 44 year old mum to 4 kids from 14-24 years...
Second consultation booked
Surgery date changed to 6th July
Just paid for my implants !!
5 days to go !
D day tomorrow
Can't believe it's tomorrow I get new boobs ! So so excited and only nervous about over sleeping in the morning and having to rush to get to the hospital !
I think I'm all prepared :)
I cant remember going back to my room or anything except seeing my wonderful husbands face grinning at me !
I felt really groggy and nauseated after, more than I thought I would . Itmeas like the biggest hangover feeling ever but without the fun part before !
I managed to take sips of water and a few little bites if a sandwich and then after an hour the nurse helped me into the bathroom to have a wee,I felt wobbly and a bit dizzy but made it there and back
As for my new ' bad boys'. They were just there , right in front of I me standing to perfect attention like they've never been before !! They felt tight , swollen and hard and sore but nothing too unbearable until I moved . Someone said pushing yourself back in the bed hurt , I tried it and see was right! So I wiggled back instead !
I managed to avoid an overnight stay , all vital signs were good and my surgeon and anesthetist came to see me and said they were delighted with the surgery / results and I could go home if I wanted to. I so wanted to! Journey home was ok , kept my eyes shut and held onto a vomit bag just in case! Got home felt really nauseous but retched in the bathroom and felt tons better after ! Got freshened up with face wipes and baby wipes for 'never never regions '! Lol ! And then got into bed with my new V shaped pillow to prop me up on me my pillows and a hot water bottle for comfort ( it's winter here in Perth and bloody cold at night )
I took a zopiclone and melatonin to be on safe side ( I'm a chronic insomniac that works 3 nights a week but sleeps well on my nights off when I'm at work but on leave I'm terrible with sleeping !!!!)
But they didn't do the trick ! Ive been buzzing most of the night thinking about me new boobs and how they will look like
I've Managed about an hour and listened to my hypnotherapy on my phone but to no success . It also hasn't helped my husband has snored and breathed really heavy all night ! He did offer to go to spare room but I don't like him to do I just let him do it , he's been so lovely to me , even bought me lucozade to drinks ( a long standing joke for anyone whose sick )
I'm still in bed but gonna get up soon
I have Celebrex ,Targin and bruprenorphine , I've never took anything stronger then 1 codeine so let's see how it ties with these !!! Of course I'm carrying on with my arnica , vitamin C and B for post surgery healing . Pain at the moment , probably around 3 when lying still and breathing in is sore , still feeling right across chest and feels like something heavy sat on me !!
I will post some pics later off before and after , my surgeon even snap chatted my surgery so super excited to see that !!!!!
Hope everyone in the world if new boobs are doing just fine today :))))
Areolas looking great and no vertical incision which I'm super chuffed with !
Pain manageable , took Targin this morning along with Celebrex and Panadol
Just feel tight and swollen and sore under my armpits !
Slept like a dog last nights!
5 days post op
Bruising is minimal ,some light green colour under my right armpit , some around the areola outside the dressings and that's about it , I'm just wanting to see what they look like within all this dressing on !! I bought a good post surgical bra which is awesome and really gives good support $53 , but I also picked up a couple of zip up ones from Kmart for $20 pack of 2 which are really nice , good support but not quite as good as the proper post op one but good to wear in between washes
6 days and feeling sooooo much better this morning !
8 days and off to 2nd post op appointment
Still feeling a bit tight across the top and I feel it if I do too much still, But life is pretty normal , been out for lunches , coffees and shopping since day 1 but felt pretty tired in the first few days if I did pretty much anything ! Been sleeping slightly on my side at night and ' morning boob ' gets easier every day . Driving is ok but I've only done a few short trips in the last few days and it was ok . Glad I'm off work for another 2 weeks as stretching arms out is still a bit sore to do, I may even try a gentle yoga class tomorrow if my PS gives me permission . But on the whole , feeling good , happy with my new additions and worth every dollar :)
20 days post op
Still got tape on ( these are my home made ones though as took old ones off )
Hopefully can keep them off when I see my PS Thursday ????
3 weeks post op
Left still feeling a bit tight but it's still early days . Feeling a lot better in myself too and back to work tomorrow night .
45 Year Old Mumma 4 Children , Breast Lift with Implants
From my first meeting with Sam and his staff , to my surgery and to my recent 3 week post op appointment, Ive been 100% happy with everything! I would recommend this procedure to anyone. it's given me my femininity back and breasts I could only dream off ! All thanks to Dr Sam and his amazing team :)
4 weeks tomorrow !
5 weeks post op
My left is still a little tight in the pec area but this is improving every week and hopefully will even out soon
Using bio oil every day and silicone tape around the Areolas , Puckering has improved as was awful in the first few weeks but tape is helping . I can still feel the sutures under the Aerolas but this is getting softer too and hoping will disappear altogether over the next few months . Haven't been measured or bra shopping just yet, still wearing post op bra some days ( when I'm at work mainly as work all night ) and my other crop bras on other days just for extra support . Loving my new look and so glad I did it :)
6 weeks and loving my boobs :)
Nearly 7 weeks softer and squishy
What I thought was the suture I can feel all round them is in fact scar tissue . So he demonstrated massage to help break it down , ouch he was rough ! I had to tell him so too! So will working on that daily .
Treated myself to some bras today , measured at 10 or 12DD/E. These are all 12DD :)
I love how they look from the front , in bras and in clothes but sometimes see a 'boxy' look from certain side angles
Has it been worth it , I would say definitely but I think I under estimated the recovery period as it was harder than I thought
I can't speak more highly of Sam. His professionalism is second to none and he made me feel at ease right from our first meeting . He answered my questions honestly and gave me advice on what was best for me . I wanted fabulous boobs and that's what he has given me ! Dr Sam, you are a star :)
