Boob Job Blogs: The first week..
I feel like I’ve been pretty lucky with pain. I guess it’s because of the subfascial technique, which is great, if you are able to go this route, I highly recommend it! I hardly felt any pain for the first 4-5 days, finally sunday my left boob started to hurt a little on the top and looks a little red as you can see in this photo. It’s still a little red and more swollen than the right, but at my post op appt yesterday my doctors said that’s fine. The fascia is lifted off the muscle to place the implant underneath and the upper area of my breast, where it’s been hurting is where it’s still connected so that’s the ‘wound’, so to speak.
The swelling has subsided a lot but as I mentioned the left is worse than the right, and seemed to kick back up yesterday when I switched from my granny bra to a sports bra. My sports bra was a little tight and they started to hurt, especially the left. I then found a looser bra to try and they started to feel a little better, but before bed I decided to put on my granny bra again just because it was so much more comfy… when I woke up this morning my left is significantly more swollen. I will keep my eye on it, if it looks more red, hurts more, or if I start to get a fever I may have an infection but so far that’s just me being paranoid. Dr. Layke seemed to be sure that everything looked normal.
I go back in next tuesday to get the tape removed and I’ll see the incision. Right now tape is covering the wound and stitches so I look like I have square nipples, lol. The stitches are dissolvable to next week when the tape comes off, I’ll be very interested to see how it goes, and what it looks like, and if my areoles are much bigger- I hope not, they don’t seem to be, but I can’t really see under the tape!
P.S. I couldn’t resist trying on my new bikini from Triangl Swimwear, it’s neoprene like a wetsuit! So rad! I’ll be shooting it as soon as I can and posting all about it!! Xx
Feel free to comment or email any questions!
With love from Hollywood,
I had mine done in November down in Newport Beach and seem to have had a pretty similar recovery, we are lucky :)- I went 475 cc’s and ended up being a 32DDD- sports bras are still hard to buy but other than that it was the best decision I’ve ever made for myself! I don’t know if you have experienced them yet, but starting at one week post op I started getting little sharp pains, I call them snake bites, and they randomly hit in your boob and last for a second or two, apparently they are really common and it’s just your nerves regenerating or something from the surgery- I wish someone had told me about that so I didn’t freak out as much the first time it happened- now it happens MAYBE once a week, if that- hope you like what you see next Tuesday :)
Hi Kier —
I’m thinking about going to the same doctors and getting the same subfascial procedure. Were you big before? Do you see any rippling or does it look natural? Getting mixed reviews about the subfascial approach has the fascia is a really thin layer, but scared of the under the muscle pain and would love to do subfascial (but I have like no boobs now, so I’m wondering if they will look “stuck on”). How has the rest of the procedure been? Did you get teardrops or just normal silicones? Any and ALL info would be so helpful as I”m scared! And let me know if your areola’s got big! tks!
Hey there! I am so glad I read this! I am 1 month and 1 week post op. Subfascial, as well. My left boob is significantly more sore than the right, and I’m so glad you mentioned yours was the same. My left was also the smaller twin lol I have a little more pain tolerance than most, but I am a skeptic when it comes to pain meds, so I really try not to take any if I feel I can just tough it out. After two years of debating yes or no on the procedure, I finally said yes lol. The best decision I’ve made for my bod ;) From a 34C to a 34DDD/F (525cc)
You are just an awesome Chica & when I move from Texas to SoCal, hopefully I can run into you! Keep up the great fashion! X O X O
