Day 1 Post Op

My BL/BA was yesterday morning. Everything went really well. I decided to go with 350 CC's smooth round moderate plus implants. Surgery lasted about 3 hours and I had no nausea, etc...after waking up. Dr Hedden went over my allergies with me prior to surgery and since I am allergic to surgical tape he used purple glue on the outside. It looks kind of funny but he said he did not want to take a chance with the steri strips and me having an allergic reaction. In addition to the pain pills, muscle relaxer and antibiotic, I was given 2 syringes filled with nitroglycerin to use on my nipples. This morning I saw him for my first post op appointment and he was pleased and told me that I should have a beautiful result. As soon as I get a chance I will upload pictures! In case someone wants to know about pain, what I feel is more like being engorged and needing to nurse/pump, my sternum (breast bone) is very sore and for some reason, my right arm pit hurts!!! I wasn't expecting my back to hurt so soon but I have been using my heating pad since yesterday. It truly is helping. I am taking arnica in addition to the prescribed medications. I go back in a week for my next post op appointment.

Last but not least, I am happy to be on the other side of everything now!!!!

Thank you! So far I am happy with the results. I try not to think about what they look like right now because I am so early in my recovery. I noticed this morning that while I still have awful swelling, both boobs are feeling a little softer.

It sounds like your recovery is progressing in a textbook fashion. I am so happy that you are so pleased with your results!! Great that your breasts are feeling a little bit softer. Keep updating!

How is it going?

I am 9 days post op with my BA/BL. I had a pretty painful recovery the first week and finally the last two days have been manageable because the swelling has gone done some. You are about a month ahead of me, so I wanted to see how you are doing now? Drop and fluff yet? And how is your scarring looking? I canít figure out how to see albums.
