Hello so I am now 3days po and feeling amazing!! Whilst I was researching on here I didn’t find many posts with similar stats to me & I found it very difficult to know wether the CC suggested was enough…. my advice is to always listen to your surgeon they know best 🙂
I was a very deflated 38DD with lots of baggy skin. I was booked into see Mr netri who told me I needed a full uplift & suggested 300CC. The first appointment was a little whirlwind and after researching I started to worry that 300 wouldn’t be enough to get my desired look (how wrong was I!) at my second appointment I spoke about my concerns, mr netri explained that if he went with a larger implant they would be at risk if sagging sooner as they would be too heavy. He reassured me that 300 was right for my frame. Went with high profile, round over muscle.
I went for my surgery on 22nd November at first choice in Preston – everybody was fantastic! It was the first ever time I have been put to sleep & everybody was just lovely, very reassuring and made me feel so comfortable all my worries and nerves were gone 🙂
I feel I have got of very lightly with my recovery… I have had very little pain just the odd sting where my drains were taken out (if you need drains I would suggest asking for pain relief 20mins before they are due to come out) it’s not Too painful just very uncomfortable!
I think the worst part of the recovery is sleeping upright – I have opted for sleeping on the sofa as it’s the ‘comfiest’ place I have found.
The best way to describe the ‘pain’ after surgery would be that it feels just like when your milk comes after giving birth (if you’ve had children) it’s not so much a pain more of tenderness. I haven’t seen any of my stitches as they are still covered up however I feel like they are healing well (very itchy!!) I will upload my before and after picture – the after picture was taken 1 day PO.
I honestly cannot thank the staff at first choice enough for looking after me and of course Mr Netri what an amazing man he is! My only regret to all of this is that I didn’t jump and get them done sooner!
Please feel free to ask any questions I will help where I can 🙂
Oh and for your hospital bag… no need for a dressing gown the rooms are like little saunas! And PO bra I took 1 that was a size larger than normal and one 2 sizes larger than normal…. we went for the 2 sizes bigger bra. 🙂
Before and after pic (1 day PO)
Wow u look amazing.
Thank you 🙂 that was just 1 day PO so lots of swelling. I’m now just over a week and loving how they are settling in 🙂 xx
Amazing!! ?? I am booked for an uplift and implants in Preston on the 16th. Do you mind me asking what you took in your hospital bag. I’m worried that I’m going to forget something. How was the night in hospital? Did you sleep okay? X
Sorry chick just seen this reply. I took far too much!! Took a dressing gown (not used as rooms are so warm & there’s a proper duvet on the beds – super comfy!) slippers – needed button up nightshirt again I didn’t use this as stayed in my gown although I did wear this for my travel home with leggings 🙂 toiletries toothbrush, face wipes and roll on deodorant, my phone charger & underwear. All of this were the things I used the rest was just a waste ? I took 2 support bras as I was unsure what size I would need. And when my husband came to pick me up I asked him to bring a pillow for the way home I had thoughts of just resting my head on it although it came in handier to put on my stomach felt a little more secure having some comfort under my bust 🙂 the hospital is amazing, staff are great & the food was beautiful not at all the ‘hospital’ food I was expecting. I slept well the nurses came in a little more than normal as my oxygen levels were a pain to get right but was only a 5 min job each time 🙂 who is your surgeon? I’m amazed by the recovery and results of scaring I’m just out of my second week PO had an anchor incision which I was really nervous about mainly because of how the scar would look…. this is what has amazed me the most it’s gone down so much! Even my husbands just commented on how he can hardly see the scarring – I will upload a picture as when I was looking I didn’t find many healing pics 🙂
Healing process…. 2 Weeks PO. How amazingly neat is Mr Netri and his stitching ? don’t know why I was so worried about having the anchor cuts!!
Sorry having trouble uploading ?
Wow they’re looking incredible! I’ve got my surgery on Saturday with Dr Netri and seeing how neat your stitching is has put my mind at ease ! Fingers crossed it’ll go as well for me as it has you!
Thank you ? I’m not sure what I was expecting after 2 weeks but it certainly wasn’t something as neat as they are! Good luck hun 🙂 your in great hands with Mr Netri
Hiya, I’m trying to book in for an uplift and implants, i feel i will have to tavel far for my op, is it possible to have someone stay in the hospital over night with you as it will be far for them to drop me off, go home and then come back for me, any help is welcomed thank you
Hello chick no one is allowed to stay at the hospital with you after visiting hours, I believe there is a hotel very close to the Preston clinic (unsure where your having surgery) xx
