Post Op - 4 weeks

Post Op - 4 weeks
Breast Augmentation Revision
 
Today marks my exact 4 weeks post op for my breast augmentation revision and I have to say, I’m very impressed with myself and my surgeon.

This surgery was straight forward, easy and surprisingly easy and pain free. I prepared myself for more pain after this one considering it was 500cc implants (100cc size upgrade from previous implants) and was a new space being released to bring them closer together.

The only real pain I experienced was 2 weeks post op on my left breast where there are multiple internal sutures. I quickly realised that I was leaning towards my phone on charge on that side at night, so I stopped using my phone once it was on charge and allowed my body to heal. This is now not a problem at all but I still am more cautious to over exert myself with my chest.

The Pro’s

My breasts are amazing and beautiful and soft and match my figure perfectly. They are not too large, nor are they too small for me anymore. I am in love :)

The process was easy and minimal pain, minimal swelling and so smooth sailing it was almost ridiculous. :)

The entire trip was easy and straight forward and so well run.

The Con’s

I had to give up (decrease) my completely unhealthy addiction to Caffeine for 8 weeks along with all of my supplements, alcohol and smoking (non-issues for me) and any meal replacements like protein shakes or appetite suppressants. This was the hurdle. I work out twice a day with cardio and weights (a lot of weights) along with other stuff and giving up the protein shakes, magnesium, zinc, Calcium, Vit B, pre-workouts, thermogenics etc was by far the hardest part a week in as these all get me through recovery way faster. I hurt pretty badly for 4 weeks before surgery.

Having time off of the any exercise was also my equal 1st hardest thing about this experience. The itch to return to the gym or ANY exercise has been a hard thing to deny for the last few weeks but I have stayed by what Dr Unson has said. I’m lucky that I heal exceedingly fast and he has allowed me to go for long, low intensity walks outdoors only until 6 weeks post op. That’s when the fun stuff starts with air weighted (literally no weigh applied to your body during exercise) squats, lunges and core work. I can also start jogging as of week 6 and building up to a run/sprint with correct support by week 12. Week 12 I can ease back into extremely light weight arms and back. The chest no longer needs to be isolated with weight training but rather can be worked with day to day life and arms/back training. By 6 months post op I’m expecting to be back at pole and handstands, push ups etc.

Besides that… its been wonderful :)

The best part of my trip would have to be the Recovery Centre and getting to see my UBE Family again. The centre is so beautiful and such a great idea to have everyone stay in a purposefully built home for recovery. The free WiFi allowed me to work the entire trip no worries and the constant check ins from Marc and Rudy was the best. Made me feel important. :)

Rudy bringing the puppies was a stand-out morning from the trip when I was at my lowest with personal crap going on + post-surgery blues hitting a little bit. That puppy brightened my entire trip, let alone that morning. :)

My flights were with Jetstar and they were surprisingly fine. Both short flights connecting in Singapore and my delays were long… 17hrs long in fact. Mind you I loved it there and was actually happy I had time in between flights to recover from swelling and slight travel discomfort post op.

Dr Unson is phenomenal. There is simply no other way to put it. His surgery team are lovely and caring and Dr Unson is the crown jewel or all medical professionals I have ever met. I cannot thank him enough for helping me achieve my dream body. :) <3
