Had breast augmentation done in August 2008. On day of appointment (at Laurel Regional) Dr Person was 45 minutes late. When he finally arrived his WHOLE family was waiting in the waiting room with my husband. They were leaving on vacation directly after. When I came to I never saw Dr Person he had already left. Had horrible time healing. When I finally was finally able to do my follow up with... more
I have always wanted to get my boobs done because my body was no proportioned well. I also had inverted nipples which made me extremely self conscious. The surgery was totally worth it! My doctor was amazing! I felt so comfortable through the entire process and I believe she is also the reason I had an amazing recovery. I love my boobs now and my nipples are beautiful. I feel like a totally... more
I've been thinking about breast augmentation on and off since I was 18 and finally decided to go through with it. I had a consult with Dr. Chang in January. Dr. Chang recommended under the muscle silicone moderate plus, and between 250cc and 350cc based on my body size. I decided on 300cc but spent a lot of time on RealSelf looking at pictures and eventually went back into the office to try... more
So I'll start off with my stats: 5'5" 125lbs. My PS is Dr. Cohen at Belecara. I've already had my pre-op and went over everything. The staff there is amazing and very thorough. I was first going to go with 250cc cause I wanted something natural but "noticeable and not noticeable" at the same time. We did the 3D image and I decided to go with the 275cc. When I went to my pre-op I was able to... more
Today is the day for my surgery. I have been waiting for a while to do this for ME. Don't feel guilty, ladies. Especially if you are a mother who's body was transformed my having children. Spend a lot of time with your sizers. The longer you walk around with them like they are part of your body, they tend to start looking smaller. I went to a board certified plastic surgeon with a... more
Dr. Markmann is a fantastic Doctor/Surgeon. During our consultations and pre-op, he was very professional and had a great attitude, and a very calm, laid-back nature about him which I really liked. The surgery went well, he answers phone calls immediately, and he was always very helpful with answering my questions.
I only have one issue, and this was post-surgery. When I showed up for my... more
I've been wanting implants since I was 16 years old and learned my mother had them. I just thought puberty was being slow with me. I've always been a 32 AA except for when I'm nursing and then I'm a 34 B. I went and tried on different sized implants and thought I want 400 CCs but after showing pictures of me with the sizers to friends and family I dec to go up to 450. I chose cohesive... more
He was so professional, patient and answered every question I had ( i asked a million). He called to check on me after surgery. The surgery didn't hurt at all. His work is so amazing. Everything looks so natural and perfect. The best decision ever. Pick him. He's an artist. I can't stop looking in the mirror!
3 days have passed and I'm feeling better. Took the wrapping off my breat and they... more
I am one day post opp. I was a 32 A and wanted to at least go to a C cup and have fuller breasts. Because I have a small frame 5'5, 125 lbs my doctor reccomended 280 CC's. I also do not have children yet and wanted to take that into consideration since my breasts will grow even more one day. Not 100 percent sure how I feel about them yet. They look very natural which is great but wondering if... more
I am impressed with everyone and everything Belecara has to offer. From the first day I entered, I was greeted by friendly faces and knowledgeable doctors. Dr. Cohen was not the first doc I talked with about having my augmentation but he was the last doctor I knew I would be talking to. After talking to him I felt completely comfortable and confident that I would be getting the look I forever... more
I wanted shape, but not huge implants. I ended up getting 275cc's. I let my dr decide which to use during the surgery- he had all sizes there. I didn't have to pre-order them. I have a smaller frame, but wanted to have shape. So far, so good! It was a great experience overall, now in the healing process!
Because I remembered to take my pain med (Vicodin) before I went to sleep, my sleep... more
I'm so nervous going under the knife and then reading about complications. I'm very tiny so I decided on 300 cc hp implants. I also had slightly lower platelet count which I was cleard for surgery but now that's anither thing I am now concerned about. Bottoming out, hematoma, uglier boobs?! Ahhh does anyone else have this same anxiety?
Now that there are a few days left until surgery I'm... more
After having and breastfeeding two kids I felt like my breast had lost all of their volume. I knew that I wanted a breast augmentation following my first son but waiting until I was done having kids. I wanted to fill in what I had lost and go slightly bigger. The goal was to have natural looking breasts for my size. I defiantly feel like that was achieved! They are exactly what I wanted;... more
I a petite 32 year old mom of a 7 year old and a 21 month old. Before kids I had perky full B cups and was very happy with what I had. But after getting pregnant with baby #1 I ballooned up to a D cup with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Needless to say the bigger they are the harder they fall! after nursing #1 for 14 months, I shrunk down to a shriveled A cup. Now 7 years later and one more... more
Finally getting sound to doing a post! My husband said as much as this site as helped me, I should return the favor :-) Original stats 43 yrs old, breastfeed two kids (now 9 &11), very active, 126lbs, about 5'6, originally 32A. In my pics you may or may not notice a line from under my belly button (it goes down into my underwear about 4 inches, 4 years ago, I had to have a massive... more
I've been lurking, stalking, and commenting on reviews for a few months. I felt it was time for my story. I am happily married to a very supportive husband with 2 children. My youngest is almost 16 months. My mom and sisters all have boobs except me. They all told me wait until I have children. Well, my breast-fed babies are here and still no boobs. However, I never thought about doing... more
Ok so I've always wished I've had bigger boobs every since I was in high school. However, I thought that padded bras was the best I could do to get them. Surgery has never been an option for me until about a year ago. Honestly I thought only strippers and celebs got them ( lol silly of me ). So now I'm in the process of looking for the right doctor and doing all the research to better educate... more
For about eight years I contemplated having a breast augmentation. I've always had hips and "backside", but had absolutely nothing up top! My breast were severely a-symmetrical ( at least to me lol) which made me extremely self conscious, I wouldn't wear the things I really wanted to because I was embarrassed about not having any breast. For years I allowed other people's opinion on plastic... more
Contemplated having this done FOREVER!!!! Now that I'm 100% ready to do this...surgery paid for. Every complication imaginable has happened. Not sure if this is some sort of bad omen :-( Second prep labs done today. The lab tech was a student..bad experience! I hope she processed the labs properly... We shall see tomorrow..
So I jumped the gun..my labs were all processed and looked very... more
Hello! I'm excited to join this community. Of course, I'm nervous about my upcoming procedure! I've visited the doctor's office for my consultation. Currently a medium to full B, looking to achieve a very full C/Small D. During the appointment, tried the sizers; however, felt a intimated to try larger sizers.
