If you had breast augmentation, how was your recovery?

I am thinking of doing this. I always had saggy breasts, even pre-kids. Now they are worse.
I was wondering what your recovery was like. My brothers GF had it done 2 years ago and while she doesn't have children she had saggy breasts and lost weight, so similar to my history. She was up and about within a day or so and went back to work 3 days later. She said she felt good, a little sore but nothing major. Now, my good friend and her twin sister had it done at the time same time. They were both an emotional mess, regretted the decision for a few months following the procedure and were in so much pain. I think all that may have been due to the fact that they were completely flat. They had nothing, so I think it was a shock to go from a AA to a full D.

I just don't know how I will feel afterwards and I am scared of it looking fake.

Any insight would be great. Thanks

Re: If you had breast augmentation, how was your recovery?

I had it done November 2011. I don't regret it at all. Recovery was good. I had shooting nerve pain but that went away after a couple of weeks, and was only during a certain position when I slept. I went from a 32 a/b to 32dd. It doesn't look as big as it sounds, because implant sizes aren't the same as regular breasts. Ask any questions if you want

During a consultation, one doctor told me that recovery is harder if you're on the smaller side (frame/weight wise). I am not sure about going thru with it because I'm worried about recovery and lingering pain.

I had breast implants done in Feb 2009. It was BY FAR the best decision I have ever made. I honestly cannot remember recovery being that bad. I know that if you have children, you cannot pick them up for a few weeks, and sleeping on your stomach isn't possible. I was back to work in a few days, and if you go with the right surgeon, he/she will put you on the right pain medication for afterwards. I remember opening jars and washing my hands felt strange (mine are behind the muscle) but that went away quick. When I tell people that they are fake, they don't believe me. They look SO real. I don't regret it what.so.ever. Best thing I have ever done.
FM me with anything.

BTW- I went from a full A to a small C.

How did you decide on your doctor? I haven't gone for any consults yet, but found some that I seemed to like based on there profile and that they were board certified in general surgery and plastics.
Is there a website where you can research doctors?

I was so scared about the procedure and had 2 friends get it done before me who were in so much pain, I had mine placed under the muscle (which is supposed to be more painful but more natural looking) and I had very little pain, the first 48 hours I took my pain meds but after that I just took Advil, had very little bruising and swelling. I had to wait 2 weeks to go back to work cause I am a hairdresser so I couldn't raise my arms above my head for that long. I actually want to go back and go a little bigger but I am going to wait a few years.

I'm glad I did it. I went up a bit but did it more for the lift. I had a normal recovery. It was sore, but not bad. My c-section recovery was worse. I was large to start so I wasn't shocked by the size, but the perkyness of them lol.

I only went to doctors that I had seen there work on people I know

mine are 3 years old

it took me a week to fully recover- the first 48 hours were hard- but so worth it

I went from a B to D+ under the muscle- so it was a pretty major operation

it took me about 4 weeks to look and feel normal
