So I had my painless breast implant surgery last Friday, took the weekend to rest and recover, by Monday I was back at work full force and more.
I went for my follow-up visit with Dr. Wigoda Monday morning for a clear check up. Then a three-hour drive back to my new hometown of Celebration, Florida, so no painkillers or muscle relaxers for Lisa in the driver’s seat. I did fine and really did not need them!
I also found out I have no stitches to remove, they dissolve! Wow, pretty cool and an added bonus, thanks Dr. Wigoda!
The first week my “new additions” seem to be settling into my body, but it s still a little weird looking in the mirror. Getting dressed each day is a challenge only because nothing fits the same and I’m not fashionably prepared with all the style necessities.
- Sports Bra – pre-surgery! – Go to a Sears or Target and buy a whole bunch of sports bras in all colors and styles. Sears had the best selection (believe it or not) and let me just clarify; I have not shopped at Sears for anything but electronics since I was in 7th grade. But I must admit, they had cool stuff and the price and selection were a definite plus.
- T-shirts (James Perse, Spendid, Vixon) that are comfy and form fitting – this has been my most worn item; a cool crew neck form fitting T with a good sports bra. So while I am swollen, I still feel good and underexposed but flattering to my new shape
- Juicy Couture – type track jackets – these work well and help support you through the first couple weeks of transition.
- Go get a facial the first week– it made me feel even better, like a new you is starting and you are cleansing for a new beginning!
- Stay as active as you were – I started back on the treadmill one week after surgery, slowly but at least getting that mental and physical stimulation
I wouldn’t say to exactly follow my lead; I think I over did it. We left for a family vacation on Thursday (6 days after surgery) and carrying luggage and weaving through an airport is probably pushing it.
I went to the gym and did the treadmill, walked slowly and did some abs! Not bad for one week later!
I will be spending the next few days on the beach in Hatterass North Carolina – a little premature 7 days after Dr. Wigoda’s painless breast implant surgery, but here I am writing this post.
