I had a BA in 2007. I was in college at the time and only missed 2 days of class. You won’t be able to lift anything over 5 pounds for a couple weeks and will have some swelling and/or bruising (depending on type of procedure you and your doctor choose) for a few days, but that’s about it. If you’re going to do it, it should be ASAP. It can take up to several months for the implants to “drop” to where they’re suppose to be (mine did anyway). That way when you have your final dress fittings, you should be totally healed. You should go in for a consultation (usually free) and discuss options and timelines with the doctor. I think my procedure was around $5000…not in Philly though.

Hopes this helps. If you have any other questions, I’d be happy to try to answer them for you.

Not from Philly, sorry… I’m in Louisville, but….

I had a BA three days before Christmas Day in 2008.  I was up and at the FIL’s on Christmas morning!  I believe it was about 6 months before they were in the position they remain in today.  Just be sure to follow ALL instructions from your doctor, don’t smoke, move minimally for the first few days and don’t drive for a week or so… especially if your car has a manual transmission.

Be sure to meet with at three doctors and takes notes/ make comments about each of them.  It is super important to be completely comfortable with your doctor.  My surgery total was around $4,500.  I, like you, had been considering implants since I was a teenager and had saved the money over the years.  If you’re not in the position to pay outright for your surgery, there are several options for financing, including Care Credit (www.carecredit.com).

With that said… I LOVE my results.  I wouldn’t change anything!  Best of luck!!  🙂
