I just wanted to share my BA experience I had my consultation the day before surgery with Dr Tang since I was coming from interstate. He is such a wonderful man, made me feel comfortable right from the start and answered all my questions in detail. I measured with a bwd of 12cm and tried on some sizers. He said that the largest he could put in was 390cc, but because I didn't want to look too top heavy, we decided to go with 330cc.... actually, I was even considering the 300cc. (I'm hoping boob greed doesn't take over me )
Then, before I knew it, it was already the day of the operation. I was taken to the pre-op room to relax, where I was given a warm blanket and gown/booties to change into. The nurse checked my blood pressure and temperature (which was apparently a little high ) and then the anaesthetist came in and discussed the medications and procedure. Not long after.... Dr Tang walked in. He took some pre-op photos and began drawing on me. I was then escorted into the operating theatre which was EXTREMELY nerve wrecking, but everyone made it soo comfortable, we were all laughing and there was even classical music playing in the background. I have a fear of needles so Dr Tang tried to distract me while it was being put in by asking me questions and holding my hand. Next thing I knew, I woke up in recovery with no pain but just a very tight chest. I was helped getting dressed and moved over to the recliner chairs. My bestfriend came in with the meds and alfie (the nurse) went through everything... (even though I was half drifting back to sleep). I was then wheeled out into the car and slept pretty much the whole way through.
The first few days were very sore, but I found I could do most things myself (including flushing the toilet ) I was taking panadeine forte regularly, but found that I didn't need to take endone at all. I actually stopped taking panadeine forte by Saturday night (Day 2 post op) and have been rotating between normal panadol and nurofen. Morning boob is the worst.. I need my boyfriend to lift me out of bed but it still hurts alot... During the day I find I'm ok and even managed to go shopping
Before my BA, I had done lots of research by reading lots of other girl's experience which is why this forum has been a blessing to me and I'm hoping I can be a good resource for other girls too. I understand that it looks especially swollen initially, but when I had my first shower... I nearly could have cried. I guess I underestimated how high the implants initially sit and was taken back by how triangular they look and the bottom but buldgey at the top. Also, my nipples seem to be very swollen and puffy as well. Still early days and I know its silly to worry about...
It is now Day 4 post op and I'm starting to get use to the look... just been trying to ice them as much as possible and waiting for time to pass until I can start loving them
