    At first I was unsure because my breasts appeared smaller in size then what I wanted. 6 weeks later & 3 cup sizes larger (12B to 12E with 345cc)  I do not regret surgery at all. If you're having doubts remember to be patient because the result you want will come!

    Day 1 -
    Pain was about a 3/10 because I kept on top of the medicine and have been resting my body the best that I can. I've been learning the hard way what my body is and is not capable of doing.
    For example, I didn't realise I engage my chest muscles to open the fridge, pull a door handle and flush the toilet. I've had to readjust how I do these things because the pulling sensation I experience is very uncomfortable otherwise!
    Aside from these few hurdles Day 1 has been very smooth. I slept soundly through the night and my pillow fort was surprisingly comfortable. I did wake up with the dreaded morning boob every one speaks about, but after moving around the tightness eased and I was back to a 3/10 on the pain scale.
    Day 2 -
    Pain is still minimal! There's the obvious tightness in my chest but it's manageable and to be expected. 30 minutes after taking panadeine forte I felt intense nausea and migrated to bed soon after. My reaction to the medication has thrown me a bit. I've decided to steer clear of codeine in general and will take panadol as required. Hopefully it offers enough relief and if not I'll be visiting the pharmacist / my local GP to see what they recommend I take instead.
    Day 3 -
    Panadol has offered me enough relief throughout the day, am going to decrease dosage amount tomorrow and see how I go. My main focus right now is going to the toilet. I am yet to naturally rid my body of waste so will speed this process up by taking metamucil during the day and Coloxyl with Senna in the evening before bed. The bloat from not going to the bathroom is actually causing me more discomfort then my chest. Started moisturising breasts today, made sure to avoid incisions during application.
    Day 4 -
    My chest has felt uncomfortably tight today and whenever I move from sitting to standing my right implant makes a farting sound. It feels like fluid is moving around in my chest cavity while the sound is going on. My breasts look a little bigger, especially my left. Not sure if this is because of fluid or because they're starting to settle.
    Taking them out of the post op bra was quite uncomfortable tonight as they felt super heavy. I have not noticed their weight previously so was surprised when I did today. The laxatives are yet to take effect so I will have some more tonight.
    Day 5 -
    Enough is enough! I'm tired of being constipated. Visited my GP and she recommended an over the counter laxative called movicol. It comes in different flavours (I picked chocolate!) & didn't taste too bad. I walked to and from the doctors (3km) and grabbed a coffee along the way. Constantly checked my heart rate reading on the fitbit to ensure it stayed below 100bpm. Had to be super aware of speed because I unconsciously power walk. Fatigue has not set in like expected and my breasts and ribs are not feeling any sorer then they were before I left. Am now in almost no pain at all which is great!
    Day 6 -
    Returned to my pre-operative weight and no longer bloated. Went for my first car ride since surgery and every bump, crevice or dip in the road caused me pain. They say fake boobs don't bounce but they do! The movements made my breasts feel as though they were detaching from my chest...damn my partner for driving like a hoon. Tightness, fatigue and a killer headache hung around all day. Inactivity is starting to affect my moods; I'm irritable because I'm not able to move around in the way I'm used to. Keep reminding myself this is only temporary and everything will return to normal in 5 weeks.
    Day 7 - Had a busy day with family and partner and was actively walking because of this. Fatigue set in and a terrible headache followed.
    Day 8 - Had 1 week Post Op appointment today. Incisions have healed beautifully and the nurse explained in specific detail what I can and can't do. How to massage my cleavage and what exercises I am able to engage in at the four week mark. She also told me to begin massaging incisions and full breasts at the three mark and mentioned being able to go swimming when they'd fully scabbed over.

    December_boobs got a reaction from AlanaJ in Size?? 400cc or 450cc I NEED HELP DECIDING LADIES   
    Originally I was going with 450s but on the day he re-measured my BWD and realised there wasn't enough space to accommodate for an implant that size. I went with my max which was 345cc and started out as a 12B/C. The implants have brought me to a full DD borderline E (I have a couple of E cup bras).
    If I was wider I would not have hesitated on the 450s so go for it girl! You won't regret it for a second! Feel free to browse through my pictures. Although I'm a DD cup, on my frame they look quite small so if you're after a fuller look 450s all the way!

    Excuse the bra under my singlet. I had a black top on at work and just chucked a random singlet on when I got home. I'm 6 weeks PO now and starting to get some good cleavage going on. My new bra size is 8F :)

    I had this the other day too although I'm only 2 and a bit weeks post op! I had to stop what I was doing and sit down because of the intensity. Called my gp, explained the sensation and she told me not to worry. She reassured me & told me the feeling is a combination of the muscles healing, skin stretching and nerves regenerating.

    @Picojunie The shape is gorgeous! You must be so happy! I'm just over two weeks post op now, occasionally I'll get a random sharp pain that runs across my incision around to my spine. As soon as it happens I have to sit down because the intensity takes me by surprise. Aside from that I've been great! Haven't experienced the sunburn feeling you're talking about but have definitely been itchy underneath my skin...it's like there's insects trying to crawl out of my chest. Lol, as for the nipples I've had sensitivity since day 3-4 and I'm constantly high breaming through shirts! Nipple covers are my new friend.
    @prue  I made the same mistake as you with sex, have told my partner that he'll be waiting a few weeks before we try again. Felt very tight for a couple of days but everything has loosened up and I'm back to normal!

    Hi ladies! 
    I am now 4 day po and still feeling pretty average. Not fun in the least! Very stiff and painful under the arms and I'm wearing a stabilizer band which is putting pressure on the incisions. But see below my pic. I must say, pretty excited to see them as they do their thang!

    Pain was about a 3/10 because I kept on top of the medicine and have been resting my body the best that I can. I've been learning the hard way what my body is and is not capable of doing.
    For example, I didn't realise I engage my chest muscles to open the fridge, pull a door handle and flush the toilet. I've had to readjust how I do these things because the pulling sensation I experience is very uncomfortable otherwise!
    Aside from these few hurdles Day 1 has been very smooth. I slept soundly through the night and my pillow fort was surprisingly comfortable. I did wake up with the dreaded morning boob every one speaks about, but after moving around the tightness eased and I was back to a 3/10 on the pain scale.
    Day 2 -
    Pain is still minimal! There's the obvious tightness in my chest but it's manageable and to be expected. 30 minutes after taking panadeine forte I felt intense nausea and migrated to bed soon after. My reaction to the medication has thrown me a bit. I've decided to steer clear of codeine in general and will take panadol as required. Hopefully it offers enough relief and if not I'll be visiting the pharmacist / my local GP to see what they recommend I take instead.
    Day 3 -
    Panadol has offered me enough relief throughout the day, am going to decrease dosage amount tomorrow and see how I go. My main focus right now is going to the toilet. I am yet to naturally rid my body of waste so will speed this process up by taking metamucil during the day and Coloxyl with Senna in the evening before bed. The bloat from not going to the bathroom is actually causing me more discomfort then my chest. Started moisturising breasts today, made sure to avoid incisions during application.
    Day 4 -
    My chest has felt uncomfortably tight today and whenever I move from sitting to standing my right implant makes a farting sound. It feels like fluid is moving around in my chest cavity while the sound is going on. My breasts look a little bigger, especially my left. Not sure if this is because of fluid or because they're starting to settle.
    Taking them out of the post op bra was quite uncomfortable tonight as they felt super heavy. I have not noticed their weight previously so was surprised when I did today. The laxatives are yet to take effect so I will have some more tonight.
    Day 5 -
    Enough is enough! I'm tired of being constipated. Visited my GP and she recommended an over the counter laxative called movicol. It comes in different flavours (I picked chocolate!) & didn't taste too bad. I walked to and from the doctors (3km) and grabbed a coffee along the way. Constantly checked my heart rate reading on the fitbit to ensure it stayed below 100bpm. Had to be super aware of speed because I unconsciously power walk. Fatigue has not set in like expected and my breasts and ribs are not feeling any sorer then they were before I left. Am now in almost no pain at all which is great!
    Day 6 -
    Returned to my pre-operative weight and no longer bloated. Went for my first car ride since surgery and every bump, crevice or dip in the road caused me pain. They say fake boobs don't bounce but they do! The movements made my breasts feel as though they were detaching from my chest...damn my partner for driving like a hoon. Tightness, fatigue and a killer headache hung around all day. Inactivity is starting to affect my moods; I'm irritable because I'm not able to move around in the way I'm used to. Keep reminding myself this is only temporary and everything will return to normal in 5 weeks.
    Day 7 - Had a busy day with family and partner and was actively walking because of this. Fatigue set in and a terrible headache followed.
    Day 8 - Had 1 week Post Op appointment today. Incisions have healed beautifully and the nurse explained in specific detail what I can and can't do. How to massage my cleavage and what exercises I am able to engage in at the four week mark. She also told me to begin massaging incisions and full breasts at the three mark and mentioned being able to go swimming when they'd fully scabbed over.
