I am only two days post-op and couldn't be any more pleased with my results thus far! I stayed the first night in the hospital because I did not have any family members / friends with me, and felt totally pampered by the nursing staff and hospital personel. Night 1 was incredibly restful and relatively pain free. I was given clearance to leave on the morning after my surgery and have been at a nearby hotel ever since. I only took one pain med since leaving the hospital and, while in more pain last night than on night 1, it was definitely bearable. While I've continued the antibiotics today, I've only taken one advil to control the pain. Took a taxi for my post-op appointment with Dr. D this afternoon and all looks good. Definitely bigger than I'm hoping for right now, but I know I'm still swollen up top and am confident the end result will be just what I was hoping for. I have been given clearance to drive home tomorrow (3 hour drive!) and am thoroughly looking forward to being back in my own home for remainder of recovery.

I chose Dr. Deluca after an immense amount of online research and after reading other positive reviews, felt confident that he was my guy. He is extremely professional, incredibly kind and gentle, and took all the embarrassment out of the pre-op awkwardness. I am extremely private in nature and very independent and he normalized my strange circumstances (ie: having a BA without a single loved one with me) while carefully paying attention to what I was hoping to see as the outcome. I would highly recommend anyone considering breast augmentation to check out Dr. Deluca. He's fabulous!
