  1. Has anyone got some post op tips to help with swelling and bloating? Feeling like a total potato I'm so bloated 😩 Day three post op. Boob swelling is definitely worse of a morning after I sleep. So I try to sit as straight as I can. Been icing them and taking arnica. They feel good after a little walk around to, I think this drains the swelling. Please help!
  2. Its only been just over twenty four hours sense my BA but I have noticed in the last five hours my breast have swollen so much more. Is it normal for the swelling to get worse? Feels so tight and uncomfortable but not painful. Just feels like they barely fit on my chest now. And are super hard now as when I cam out of surgery they felt fine just big.
  3. Hi all Just wanted to share my story in hope someone will benefit. Had my BA in 2013 and didn't use arnica and I had some VERY nasty bruising and swelling! Had to have one of the implants replaced (due to CC) in 2016 and used arnica and had NO bruising and minimal swelling. So if your wondering if it's worth it I say YES YES YES!!! Will add some photos ❤️ This was the bruising from my original BA 😢
  4. Is drop and fluff likely to make me bigger or smaller as there is quite a lot of swelling but smaller than what I was expecting! No doubt will be 100 times better than what I had before tho!! also how long for things to start looking normal?

  6. I understand that there is swelling post op. I had the swelling on my sides then it migrated to my belly, and now it's at my Vagina! Even the lips of my Vagina is freakin swollen! I'm freaking out! Please tell me that this is also normal?!
  7. I'm 8 days post open Rhinoplasty. The cast & stitches came out yesterday (ouch!). When I first saw my new nose it was nice, the bulbous tip was reduced from the side, but front on it was still massive. As soon as I left I took front and side on pictures of myself. Today I did the same and it's almost doubled in size, so swollen. The side profile isn't too bad, but front on it's extremely wide and the tip is even more bulbous than before surgery! Has anyone experienced this with swelling? Can you see it reduce in size as the weeks go by? I'm a little scared and also need to return to daily life again next week. Help!!
  8. Hi guys. I am 8 days post op and I just noticed today that when I open my arms (in a T position) the skin in between my boobs lifts up a little bit (maybe 1cm) and when i put my arms down the skin goes back down. Plus i have a burning sensation in between my breast in the sternum/cleavage area. I am really scared that this could be the start of synmastia. I have another appointment with the nurse on Monday so I will speak to her about this then. But just want to know if anyone has experienced what I am? Also my bwd is 12cm and the implants I got are 12.7cm. Did anyone else get implants larger than their bwd?? thanks ladies!
  9. Hello So I'm 2 weeks post op today and I still have a lot of swelling around the side of my boobs/like under my arms and I'm still in quite a lot of pain all over. Does this sound normal? Thanks !!
  10. hello ladies, I'm day four post op! Got them done on Thursday just curious I haven't really experienced much pain throughout the whole process. But just tonight in my right breast I have been experiencing pain and it's a little warmer compared,to my left breast. could this be because it is my main arm that I use as I'm right handed? thanks!!
  11. Hi ladies as a lot of you know i have recently had a BA and i am concerned of the amount of bruising i have, not only on my breasts but also all over my side and stomach. Wanting to know if anyone else has had or knows someone who bruised this bad? Added photos . The one in the spotted PJs is from today 4days post-opp
  12. ok, im now 5 days out and I am a little concerned. I had a full TT with lipo, moved belly button, stitched muscles inside etc etc. I have just taken off the compression bandage standing up for the first time. Im definitely not flat stomach, im looking more like 5 months pregnant. I assume this is swelling - god I hope its swelling. So can someone reassure me here or godforbid warn me this is not right. To me I look the same if not worse than when I went in. Second worry I have is right up the top - just below my breast bone in the middle - starts like an indented V which widens as it goes down my stomach. Its not huge indent more like a shadow though definitely visible. The only way I can accurately describe it is if i was shining a torch down my cleavage the shape of the light is the shape of my indent - right down to the incision. Can anyone shed some light on this? To me with this and the no change in belly size I wish I had not done it. I am actually getting more and more distressed about this as Im writing because I keep checking in the mirror if it is for real and I hate my body more than I did 5 days ago. I never thought that could be possible. Ive recently posted new updated photo's. so if you want a more clearer picture of what Im talking about go and have a look. I see my surgeon in 48hours so biting my nails till then. Ive had a couple of other little hiccups though they are not as worrying to me as the above ones.
  13. Hi, I had a tummy tuck and lipo in May and I have had a fairly long recovery. I have been very tired and sore for the last few weeks and I have had to wear this compression band day and night. I am starting to do a bit more these days but I was surprised by how hard the first week was. I had had a c-section so I thought I had some idea what I was in for, but this was totally different. I feel like I am tired all the time and I am still taking pain meds (although not regularly any more). I still have not been able to see much in the way of results because the swelling still looks bad. I actually have had to go up a size in clothes rather than down! But hopefully the results will be worth it eventually! I am lucky that I have had really good help with minding my son, otherwise I could not have done this. He still wants to jump on me but I am starting to be able to have him on my lap without it being an "ouch" moment. Look forward to seeing the results in a few months time. The scar looks ok considering! ( I saw some really bad ones before surgery and I was preparing for the worst!).
  14. I had a breast augmentation (implants and crescent lift) on July the 29th. I have had a really bloated tummy. I look 5 months pregnant. I have no idea if this is normal or if there is a drainage problem. Could they have taken the drains out too soon and the fluid is building up in my stomach area? I exoected my breasts to swell, just not this. I can't go out in public because my jeans don't do up. I am feeling really down about it all. I dont see my doctor till Friday and I am not sure if I should try to go in sooner. Is it normal? Can I do anything to help?
