As I passed through the six month post-op period, the beach and bikini season began. I have never looked so good in so little clothing before – it’s been a definite boost to my self- esteem. There is still some residual healing to be done. My nipples are more sensitive than they were pre-surgery and … Continue reading SIX MONTHS AFTER SURGERY – WHAT’S LIFE LIKE AS AN ENHANCED YOGI?
At the 3 month point I am feeling very comfortable with my enhanced breasts. I still have a minor loss of sensation above the incision areas on both sides but I expect this will eventually return.

By the 3rd week the swelling had gone and I was very happy with the overall result - the implant size was in proportion to my body and my bony sternum was no longer a prominent feature, as the upper portion of my chest was filled out. For exercise I was doing a combination of … Continue reading YOGA & EXERCISE AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY – Week 3 Post Op
For exercise I was walking at an easy pace for an hour daily. I started driving again at 10 days post surgery.

I had decided not to do any private yoga tuition until the 3rd week post surgery … Continue reading YOGA & EXERCISE AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY – Week 2 Post Op
