breast augmentation

09th Jun 2019

I’m day three after my breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Cortes, the pain has subsided and I am feeling more human. It wasn’t simple, I’ll tell you this. The day I got home from the hospital I felt that nothing changed, aside from a feeling of being tired, I felt like I could do things around the house, talked to my hubby without getting too tired or speechless, but once I fell asleep, I woke up in pain and like the first day didn’t existed. I couldn’t find the pills fast enough. In the evenings and at night the pain is worse and it is accentuated by the fact that I can’t sleep on my back at all. My hubby said he’ll get more pillows and arrange them so I will feel better, but he didn’t get a chance to go shopping yet. Other people told me that the pain will last no longer than a week, but right now it feels it will take forever this week.

I’m also worried a bit about the scars, I saw doctor Cortes yesterday and he said everything looks good and there is no sign of infection, this is great news, I thought I was a bit feverish and thought maybe the incisions got infected, but no.

Dr. Cortes was great before the surgery, he gave me lots of confidence that things will be ok. He is the best possible when it comes to patient’s care. So accommodating and kind and friendly and at the same time very professional. Now we have another follow up consultation in a few days, I hope he’ll say everything is ok.

The breasts are really big, I think a bit bigger than I expected, and they feel like rocks at this point. I have a tension sensation in the chest, probably the implants stretching the tissues. At this point is not very comfortable, but Dr. Cortes explained it is only temporary and normal. I’m looking forward to see how it will evolve in time and when the breasts will descend and soften.

I’ll get back to you with how the healing will evolve after this week, wish me luck.
