Phew its been a long day, hit the road to Sydney at 6:30am after a sleepless night thanks to 43 deg C yesterday. But just got back from my 7 week post op consult after 8 hrs on the road but had a great day!
The nurses all wanted to see how I was progressing and of course I was happy to show them!
I was surprised but even at 7 weeks my PS sad I still have a long way to go. The "puckering" that I have on my left boob is nothing to worry about and will give way eventually, he said that this boob had to be stitched a little tighter as this boob was more saggy than the other, he explained it all so well (cant remember everything) so Im very happy and not concerned. My right boob still has to drop in but now I have been given the go ahead to massage so this will help keep everything soft and help the implant expand - told him oh you mean fluff!!! lol
I was surprised just how firm the massaging is as Ive been so careful with them up to now but now I have to deliberately move the implant! My PS also said to get rid of the silicone strips as they are irritating my skin, I have to use Bio Oil twice a day. Also I dont need to wea a bra at night and was given the go ahead to buy new bras, incl underwire! No post op pics yet, I have to go back in 3 mths so maybe then.
Dr Liew and his staff think Im hilarious, but as Dr Liew reminded me that he doesnt normally do larger boobs (sorry girls) so I feel very fortunate that he was able to help me achieve my boob goal - which I thought was an F..... till I went shopping!!!!!
Mum and I headed straight to the mall to a beautiful lingerie shop in North Sydney - Mary Holland. I was remeasured and tried on some bras - 32G!!!! OMG!!! Picked up some nice ones too!!! So for all the Aussie girls, and beyond, you can buy larger bras at a great price!!! I bought 4 today at around $55 each, a couple that were pretty and a couple that were more practical for work. (I know you can buy cheaper but for my first time around I wanted to do this properly, Ive spent $12,000 on my boobs, Im not going to baulk at a 50 buck bra when Im protecting my investment lol!!!) You can buy on line but they are located all over Sydney and the girls there were amazing and very professional in the way that they measured and fit.
So after coming out of there glowing with a new stash of bras and I bought a lovely new dress too. Will post some pics of the bras - Elle McPherson and Pleasure State. www.maryholland.com
