Breast augmentation and lift

Day 6

I am almost feeling like my old self again. I am on my own during the day and doing little things around the house. I am not supposed to do any heavy lifting or anything that will strain my breasts, but I am being very cautious.

Day 7

I went out to the grocery store with my girlfriend. I feel great, but I have to stop myself from overdoing it. Just out of habit I picked up my heavy purse. I didn't pull anything, but I definitely felt the weight of the purse.

My husband was right about one thing; men do speak to the chest. I was wearing my sports bra under a tight T-shirt and it felt good to finally be able to fill out a shirt. I feel more proportionate and feminine. I am so glad I did my breast lift and augmentation. I showed my girlfriend today and she is very happy for me. I have a group of women from my gym who are waiting to see what I look like and then they want to get their boobs done too.

It will be nice once I am all healed to walk around and feel totally comfortable and happy with my body. I would recommend this experience to any woman considering breast surgery. I know it is going to change my life for the better. I am already more confidante.

As far as the pain, the first one or two days was the worst for me other than that no problems. My left breast is still more sensitive than the right, but Dr.Corbin said that should change in time. It is going to take a little while longer to heal completely, but so far I am happy, I love my new breasts!
