    Default Surgery update!!-OT-updated on 2/15 with current pics

    I had my breast augmentation surgery this morning. I am now home. I'm feeling a bit sore, more pressure than pain. The surgeon put in 250cc silicone implants. I think it will look very natural once everything heals up. I did take a before pic in my swimsuit top last night and I'll take an after one when I can get the wraps off and looking for normal. I have to keep myself wrapped tight until Friday. No showers til then either so I'll be smelling good. If I feel up to it I'll take a pic of how it looks now. I also have some wonderful pain pills and valium to get me through.

    Congrats Meg - enjoy the new you! I can't wait to see before and after pics. So what does 250 ccs equate to in cup sizes?

    I really don't know what it will be in cup sizes. The surgery nurse thought it looked like a C. I'm thinking a B. I'll be happy with anything other than a AA. They implants are measured in cc's. My surgeon won't do the huge "stripper" boobs. He told me to think Julia Roberts, not Pamela Anderson. I am tall and skinny, so huge boobs wouldn't look good on me. I can't wait to get to go to Victoria's Secret to buy new bras. I was never able to do that before because nothing would fit right. Too bad the semi-annual sale is going on there right now and I can't buy anything. I have to be wrapped in an ACE bandage until Friday, then a sports bar, then no underwires for 6wks. Which is probably for the best since the incisions are under the breast. I keep peeking under the wrap to look at my new boobs!

    While I was waking up from the anesthesia I was telling the nurse about our IVF journey and said that I always thought "if I couldn't have a baby, I was getting new boobs." She said "you deserve this."

    I was kind of wierd being at the hospital. It's the hospital where I used to work until this past year and my DH is an ER doc there. I requested an all female surgery staff since the one male they have there is "yucky."

    He is gross. I just didn't want him seeing my boobs before my DH got to.

    The 3 nurses I did have during the surgery I trained. It was kind of weird. I'm sure they were super nervous as I always was when I had to take care of medical co-workers.

    There is a bit of swelling. I don't think much since I've been up and moving around today to minimize swelling. They sit up really high initially but will drop in a few months and look more natural. I'll take another pic once they start to look "normal."
