    Had my procedures done Monday and the kind doctor did a revision of my fleur de lis scar and a bit of Lipo to my mons. Sooo happy with my results.
    Was barely a 32b before
    I think I’ll be a 32c now
    She used 310 cc implants

    Bigman12345 reacted to xoxococojay in Breast reduction- did anyone get one after surgery? If so why?   
    So now that i'm closer to my goal, i'm looking into possibly having some work done so i can feel great about myself.
    I'm definitely buying a bigger butt. But i'm debating on whether or not i should get a breast reduction too. I'm not having pains or anything that would require me to get one. And i'm conflicted because i'm glad they're still intact post op. The reason why i'm actually considering it is because of buying clothes, my waist is a small, but my chest is definitely a large, so it makes buying anything with a button or a zipper a challenge. I'm also afraid that if i do get a reduction then my stomach will become more noticeable.  
    Below are my before and after photos. What do you suggest i do? (Obviously the two photos on the left are my before pics and the jumpsuit is my after)

    My weight finally stabilized around 145 (original goal weight), so I went forward with surgery for a breast lift with implants (Dr. Ciaravino in Houston is amazing). I lost 72 lbs total after the sleeve but added approximately 1.5 lbs of implants (Mentor MemoryGel Smooth Round High Profile 350cc). I cry when I see these photos side by side. I got sleeved on 2/28/2018 and got these boobs 9 months later on 11/30/2018. What a year.

    I am staying an extra night in the hospital. I haven’t been able to get many liquids down and I have a large hematoma on my right side, still in a considerable amount of pain.

    They put a binder on me to try to help some of the swelling. I’m starting to walk more which is helping the gas pains greatly and like they told me, it’s great to burp but farting feels better lol it’s true!

    I’ve had a few sips of broth, I prefer the warm over the cold but none of it tastes good. I’m not hungry at all. It does bother me when they bring food in and my stomach growls. It’s apparently hungry but I am not ready yet.

    The worst part about the whole process was the day nurse. I have felt very alone and I had to beg for pain medicine (which was only Tylenol with codeine) even though I was over due it still took him an hour to come with it and by then I was a crying mess. I would prefer to stay ahead of the pain so I can focus on drinking and walking and not on the pain. I know they are busy, I can hear all the racket out there but the pain has been pretty bad. :(

    Sometimes NSV are the best victories! I've had quite a few in the last year but here are some:
    I can fit comfortably in the chairs in our conference room at work, the arms used to dig into my legs and hips so bad.
    I can shop in straight size stores only now, no more bouncing between plus and straight
    I need new wedding rings, my fingers have gone down so much I can't even have my rings resized!! Yay new wedding set!!
    Calf boots, I can wear them all. I also went down a shoe size so I need all new shoes on top of a new wardrobe.
    I can see my feet again when I look down instead of just my belly, also my boobs are bigger than my belly again, thank god.
    I can do 40-60 minutes on the Elliptical and not need a break. The first time I got on I couldn't even do 5 minutes.
    I'm smaller than my husband for the first time ever.
    I can cross my legs comfortably and love doing it.

    I parked in a tight parking space and was still able to squeeze out of my door, without touching the car next to me. In the past I would not have been able to get out of my car.

    I feel so frustrated that everyone has their set dates lol I only have a tentative date due to needing a range for requesting time off work. Seems like it’s only my office that doesn’t schedule early on. Not really complaining just anxious and and want a set date! But so happy that there are a lot of us in April (tentatively the 23rd for me but won’t know until my last appointment on April 3)
