I am both happy and UN happy with my decision.
Pros- I have my old boob size back.
I am a fit woman and I had boobs before kids. I went from a c cup to an aa cup and my body looked out of proportion.
I had augmentation in April 09 and I am thinking I may need a revision. Before kids I had great boobs-34c and no sag. Never passed the "pencil test". After 2 kids and breast feeding (they still were somewhat sag free -per docs comments- but I'm thinking that was because I was not even an A cup) and LOTS of research I decided it was time to get my old boobs back.
In April 2009 I went under the knife and once I came out of the drug coma I called the Doc and mentioned how different they looked from each other. He insisted it was normal especially after only 3 days. Well, it has been 6 months and they still look wayyyy off. I NEVER had to wear a bra and worry which way my girls were "looking" now, I MUST wear a bra. My left breast looks great. Very natural. My right is high and just not right. The pocket on the right breast is smoother and lower.
The scar on the right breast is also off from the left - one is just above a crease and the other at the crease. I have been doing everything he had told me to do regarding massage and wearing a bra (I'd be embarrassed not too!) At each check up I had mentioned the difference and the Doc just looked at me as if I were crazy.
My husband, who is an Engineer and is overly precise regarding symmetry says that there is an extreme skew between the 2. I agree (Especially after I took the photos to post!!! Yikes!). I have had 4 girlfriends that have had augmentation look and they too see the difference. I see the difference in clothing with or without a bra...
I have my 6 month check up on Monday... How do I tell my Doc I want a revision? I don't want to hurt his feelings (is that awful?!) because surgeons in their own right are artists....as am I. I paid six grand and he had said "If you aren't happy I will do what I need to make you happy" Was that a red flag right there?!?! I really appreciate your time... Thank you!!!!
