Anyone 6 to 8 weeks post op???

Just wondering how everything is healing for everyone 6 to 8 weeks?

I feel like my boobies are dropping so slow! They are getting softer but still high. My incisions are looking really good and every now and then I het an achy pain on my left cleavage. Other than that I think everything is going fine.

What about you ladies?

Hey there, I'm 9 weeks now, I started feeling like my normal self more and more around the 6 week mark. I still get some occasional pain which my PS said is normal for at least 3 months. I actually just found out that the internal sutures take 6-12 weeks to dissolve because I had a tiny piece of suture in one of my scars and my PS said it will still take some time to dissolve. Now I feel crunchies when I do my massage and I think its the scar tissue and sutures inside crunching up lol.

I think mine are done dropping, I had stretched skin preop so I think I dropped faster because of it. I'm so happy with my boobs!

Im 6 Weeks Post Op today and i'm feeling the same way. They still seem pretty high. I actually noticed quite a change in the way they felt around the 4 week mark, they were getting squishy but haven't changed much since then. My right is dropping sooner then the left and that's normal. I just wish they were BOUNCY! lol when I run I can feel a little bit of bounce but its not a natural jiggly bounce that i'm looking forward to. I had little breast tissue to begin with some im assuming this is the culprit but hopefully over time once the muscle relaxes ( I have unders ), and my girls start to fluff, surely these babies gotta get some bounce.

I am also praying that over time when they D&F they'll grow a bit! I am pretty happy with the size but I am still waiting on some underboob. They're full on top with not much going on bottom. So a little fuller would be perfect!

Talking

I am 7 weeks post-op. I have little to no discomfort at all now, except when I "massage" my scars... I really get at 'em, and it hurts! I have to drink wine first.
I have the occasional zinger; I imagine those will never disappear altogether. I'm used to them now though. They really don't bother me.
The girls have dropped a LOT in the last 2 weeks. Lefty is still rounder & a tad higher than righty, but it had the larger implant in the smaller boob, so I guess that is to be expected.
They are definitely bouncy & will jiggle quite a bit... if I *make* them. I've even gotten to the point where they're fun to play with in the sack with DH.
I'm going bra shopping this weekend, just because I can, not because I fully expect anything I may buy to fit in the coming months. But, whatever. I just want the experience.
Good to hear you are coming along well. Happy continued healing!

I am 6 1/2 weeks and am doing good. I have one that is looking smaller than the other. It is only 50cc smaller but I can def tell a difference. I am hoping it will drop and get a little bigger, if not, I am going to have it replaced with the same size as the other. My scars are looking very good. I still have tenderness in them tho. I have some boobie greed as well..lol

I'm 8 weeks post op today. I have zero pain, haven't had any in weeks. I can massage pain free, but then massaging has never really caused me any discomfort anyhow. My right has dropped a lot, and feels and looks very natural. The left has been a little firmer and higher but over the past week or two has started to come down to meet her sister. I'm absolutely loving my results. I hope they continue to drop and soften even more, as I really want a natural look. Glad to hear all the rest of you ladies are doing well!!!

Mine are super squishy now. I hope they don't get ANY squishier in fact!

I think I still have some dropping to do. I still have slightly more upper pole than lower pole. But, I have been doing bust measurements periodically since 3 days po and that measurement has stayed within a half inch.

All in all I'm very happy! Just hoping and waiting for a little more rounding out and lower pole :-)

For all those stressing about size within the first few weeks PO!!!

First two weeks - 36C Sports bra
3-4 weeks- 34DD
6-8 weeks- 32G
9-11 weeks- Fluffed an extra cup size!
6-9 months- rounded and settled and nipple seems to have gotten higher :-) Prettier shape.

So, instead of being stressed, upset, and depressed...look forward to all the positive changes that are in store for your boobies!

6 weeks post op today, I think.

Not much pain, only discomfort when Im trying to get comfy at night, or when my 20 month old decides to play patty cake with my boobs.

Im not sure about dropping and fluffing, I don't know why, but I cant tell much difference in them, although everyone else says they can.

Got freaked out about a few things, double bubble, cc, everything. Apparently i'm a super hypochondriac about anything booby related.

I love them though. I really love them. Just hoping they will drop and fluff, as they look a little strange now.

I'm almost 7 weeks post op. I've noticed that they've dropped a lot since week 5! They look a lot less pasted on too. I'm really enjoying them. Very little if at all pain at this point. Righty is still a tad higher but I suspect it will always look a little off since that's where I've had lumps removed and several biopsies. Now I'm to the point where I want to show them off in something other than a coobie bra but I'm hesitant to buy too many bras. I'm noticing the drop and fluff (which I thought was a hoax, but seems to be happening...). Overall I love my new boobs!
