I had been waiting to do a BA for years! 15 years to be exact! Two of my friends recommended Dr. Nakamura at Accent on You in Texas. Dr. Nakamura did an exceptional job. I couldn't be happier with my results; however, my recovery has been extremely painful. At 4 weeks post-op, I started experiencing excruciating cramping on my right breast, so excruciating, I felt like making a run to the ER. ... more

Hello all. I have one child whom I breastfed for one month and during that time frame my breasts got so big, but now I have loss of volume. I am hoping to regain it and then some with a breast augmentation. I am looking to get a breast augmentation very soon. I am starting at a 32A and hoping for a D/DD with high profile smooth round silicone implants. Still debating between high profile and... more
I'm very happy with my results, especially now that the swelling has subsided. I had 400cc's of silicone implants placed under the muscle. I'm amazed about how natural they feel and look, along with being beautiful. After pregnancy and with age, my breasts had become very deflated and didn't look or feel anything like my younger years. I'm glad I chose Dr. Rumalla because the entire... more
I had breast augmentation 8 weeks ago. I decided on silicone gel implants, 469 cc. I have had no complications and the result is even better than I expected. They look and feel natural and I am exactly the size she told me I would be. Dr. Stiles even answered my after hours phone calls and was available when I needed her. I have total confidence in her and would go back to her again! more
RealSelf helped me so much in my decision to explant (remove implants). Had to write my experience. I hope it helps someone.
BACKGROUND: was 25yr old, size 34 b. Wanted them bigger. Husband tried to talk me out of it. (He's the smart one) Got McGhan 330cc mid profile, smooth round, implants, overfilled to 360. Put in under the muscle, inserted through the armpit. I cried every night... more
Monday is my big day. I totally have jitters. I'm rethinking my size, my profile, the timing, everything! Part of that is just my personality, and part of it is because it is such a life changing decision. I've always loathed having such small breasts, but now that I'm about to say adios to them, I've found myself touching them and thinking, "they're not THAT bad." Never would have imagined I... more
Hands down the best experience I could ever ask for by Dr.Friedman and his staff. I was looking into surgeons for a few months when I finally decided that I wanted to enhance the size of my breast to look the best as possible with my size. I was afraid for awhile due to the fact that my breast plate was large and I am a fit girl who works out a lot. I felt that if I were to get an augmentation... more
Hey there ladies, I was wondering if i could get some of ya'lls input in this experience I'm about to go through. I'm so excited, scared, and nervous at the same time. I am going to have 425cc round textured silicone implants Friday May 30th!! Whats the rate on Pain? Any Regrets on size for those of you that got somewhere in between the size I'm getting? Ladies without kids or that have got... more
I am extremely disappointed with Dr. John Burns. I am a 22 year old, 125 lbs mother of one and after breast feeding for 6 months was left with depleted sagging breasts size 34B. I originally got an online consultation with Dr. Hackney, a plastic surgeon in the same building as Dr. John Burns. Dr. Hackney's assistant told me that it appears as though I will need a lift as well as a BA and she... more
I have I've been researching doctors for over 4 years and reading realself forever!! I've finally decided to take the plunge and pray for the best. My initial consultation was set for june 2, however I called and told them I was ready to get this show on the road and am now going for my consultation/preop May 16. I have an opportunity to have surgery May 27, however that's my kiddos last... more
My b.a. is in 5 days. I have serious reservations about doing the Awake procedure. I have the option of doing "twilight" in addition to the tumescent anesthesia but am concerned about safety issues as well as spending additional $ that may be completely unnecessary. I've scoured the internet for information & it really seems like only plastic surgeons have negative comments. But they are VERY... more
Hello RealSelf Users!
I've been reading through all of you beautiful ladies' reviews and stories and it's helped me tremendously with my journey to my soon to come BA procedure! :)
I'm a 23 year old soldier about to complete my deployment here in Afghanistan (No children yet). I'll be back stateside in a matter of days and have scheduled my BA with Dr. Gregory Stagnone in Dallas, Texas.... more
I had my consultation with Dr. Pin today after years of thinking about it. His staff was amazing and I liked him right from the beginning. I have been considering BA for about 10 years, but was too scared. He understood what I want, and suggested exactly what I had been wanting. I scheduled my surgery for May 16!
So 11 days from now, I'll be recovering. I'm kind of over the excitement... more
First: I'm 5'7", 135lbs, starting cup size 34B, ending cup size 34D.
I've always loved the look of my breasts but over the last several years their size (or lack thereof) had come to bother me. I used to be a full 34C in high school, but as I began working out and watching my diet they shrunk to a small 34B by the time I hit 24. I was so sick of feeling like I needed to buy padded bras,... more
I was referred to Dr. Lavine from a friend that had BA done by him and she raved about him. Now I know why, he is wonderful. He gave me exactly what I wanted and even what I didn' t know I wanted. He is very experienced and precise. I had one breast that was larger which of course sat lower and he completely evened them out. Amber is so nice and patient. She will answer ANY questions that you... more
I went into the consultation thinking I knew exactly what I wanted- 450-500cc through the arriola and saline. I left the consultation feeling nervous because we decided on 400cc filled to 450cc saline unders with an inframammary incision. I also have a slight asymmetry problem from breastfeeding and he said that with saline you have to be careful filling one more than the other because of... more
I got diagnosed with PCOS over a year ago. My body changed do to my hormonal imbalanced so I decided to have breast augmentation and nipple reposition surgery to correct my breasts. I am now 3 months post op. I had a good surgeon, but I still have redness around my nipples which is uncommon. They are referring me to a dermatologist to see why I still have redness. So it's defiantly been a... more
I went to 5 plastic surgeons seeking breast augmentations before finally making my decision to do it with Dr. Hubbard. I was nervous the day of surgery, but his staff was very comforting and supportive. After the procedure, I surprisingly had minimal pain. I didn't even take my pain medications. It's only been 6 days and, besides the swelling, I love the outcome already. I cannot wait until... more
