It’s amazing how much my body continues to change! My thighs are looking pretty fabulous when they’re not swollen. I’ve been wearing the compression suit 12 hours or more. Honestly, my biggest regret is letting them lipo my stomach and “love handle” area. These areas remain very stiff, lumpy and tender. I’ve tried doing some light zone exercises which haven’t seemed to help much. I’ve also been trying to find time to take a bath every night as well which was recommended to aid the healing process. I’ve found baths tend to be a good place to massage the areas to get rid of lumps, bumps and hardness, but they usually come back – just not as badly perhaps. The bruising is almost gone in all areas as well!
My breasts are really starting to soften up. I bought my first bra, a conservative 32D and it fits! The cup runneth over a bit and MAYBE I could’ve gone with a DD, but I’m not sure how much more they’ll go down in size so this will serve me well for now. I also picked up my first sports bra so I can start going to the gym again! All of my old tops were the tanks with built in shelf bras. I tried to put one on and ROFL – I couldn’t even get it over the girls.
I finally understand what “well-endowed” women go through. When I went to the store to pick out a sports bra I grabbed a couple Mediums off the rack. The one I got on, but barely, the other wouldn’t even come down over the girls. Back to the rack. I grabbed two larges, one which came over my chest but was a little lose in the band, and the other which had an adjustable band that I went with.
Now I’ve come to the realization that none of my bikini tops will fit =\ Which is a little sad since last year I splurged for a cute Tommy Bahama bikini. Even if by some miracle it DID fit, I wouldn’t be able to wear it since it’s underwire, and they told me underwire would kill the fat injections. Soooo I ran to Target looking for a cheap bikini. I pulled a size large off the rack….laughable. No extra large either, so the hunt continues!
Hormone Cream to Enlarge Breasts
Before the procedure I had read another woman’s experience with fat transfer and her use of a hormone supplement to maintain and even increase the size.
From what I’ve read, you mix progesterone cream with 1000mg of L-Arginine tablets and rub it directly on the breasts once a day for the last two weeks of your cycle. The woman also stated to avoid coffee. I’ve ordered the exact products she used to try and replicate.
She stated that she waited 6 months after her fat grafting (which she had had after an explant of silicone implants) and gained 2 cup sizes of permanent growth.
It seems pretty harmless, so I deemed it worth a shot. I just need to determine when to start trying this.
No pictures from Week 3 – I’ll try to make up for it for Week 4. Until next time!
