Tuberous Breast Correction & Augmentation... FINALLY YAHOOOO!! - Albany, NY

I'm 29 yrs old, and to say that I've always been...

I'm 29 yrs old, and to say that I've always been very self-conscious of the way my practically nonexistent boobs look, is a MAJOR understatement. I'm FINALLY going to have nice, normal looking boobs, & I couldn't be more excited! Just booked my surgery yesterday with Dr. DeLuca in Albany, & booked the hotel that I'll be staying in. I'm pretty nervous about the amount of pain I'll be in post BA, but not enough to deter me from having them done :) Im also concerned about the results I'll have because I'm very picky, & want them to be gorgeous (wish pics to follow), & I'm not exactly starting out with a good "canvas" lol. Also wondering about the best post-op bra to get (day & sleeping), where to get ice packs specifically for this procedure (and which ones), what vitamins/supplements to buy to help healing & recovery time, & the best scar cream to get. Any tips, suggestions, & personal experience sharing, would be greatly appreciated :) Pics of type of results I'm hoping for... Not necessarily size, but the shape & "look" I want

Day 2 Post-Op

I couldn't be happier with my results!! My breasts look amazing already, thanks to Dr. Deluca. I am probably one of the pickiest ppl I know, and for me to say how wonderful they look, is saying a lot. The doctor & his staff were beyond supportive & professional, and there is no question in my mind, that I made the right decision in going with Dr. Deluca. Before & after pics to follow soon!!

Day 3 post-op

Took too many percocets earlier (2 instead of 1) & I was beyond messed up & feeling sick... Then got a migraine from being dehydrated. Anyway, still healing beautifully, & couldn't be happier. Here are some pics of me pre-op & 2 days post op.

More day 2 post-op pics

Post-op Day 4

Haven't taken any Percocet or Motrin as of yet. A little bit of a hard time getting comfortable & falling to sleep, but really can't complain considering I had my chest muscle cut in 2 spots with 400cc or silicone shoved in there threw my nipples :)

Pics distorting size.

FYI, they look much smaller in these pics than they actually do in person... Just post-op I'm talking about... They were actually that tiny beforehand lol.

7 days since BA+BL :)))

It's been a week since my surgery & I'm getting happier every day with the progress my girls are making. Went shopping today for new shirts, & almost everything I tried on looked great!!! I was worried I'd look heavier with big boobs, but I feel I look thinner!!! Also, had to try on bras just to see, & it seems as though I'm a 36D!!! Feels AMAZING to say that. I love you, Dr. Deluca!!!!!

Day 20 post-op

Just went bra shopping & the bra rage fit the best was Vera Wang's 34DD @ Kohls :))
Here are some photos from earlier

3 WEEKS POST-OP

I'm so happy with how gorgeous they came out ESPECIALLY bc of how bad I started out. Just super paranoid about CC. Right breast is still firmer than, & hasn't dropped as much, as the left.

Wasn't done lol

I started on the Vit E twice a day & massaging at least 3 times a day. My doc prescribed me Accolate since I'm so worried about CC & since my right breast is pretty firm. I might wait on the Accolate being that at least 6 drs (on this site) said my results are excellent & that it's too early to have developed CC. All of them said its prob just taking longer for everything on that side to relax, & that from what they can see, I'm in excellent hands with my surgeon, & to follow his instructions. Thanks everyone! SPECIAL THANKS TO DR. WILLIAM DELUCA & to all the staff @ Deluca Plastic Surgery Center, that have been there for me every step of the way.

7 wks post-op

Dropping & fluffing nicely :) Beyond happy with the results.

Marvelous results! I'm still debating between Dr. D, and a surgeon in Cali who also specializes in tuberous breast correction - if you do not mind me asking which surgeons in Cali were the ones you had in mind alongside Dr. D?

Romano & Pousti.

But if u live closer to NY, go to Dr. D. He is less expensive than the other 2. The other 2, you'll end up spending close to $10K, not including airfare & hotel stays

I'm really torn apart at who to to go to. I've emailed with Dr. Pousti and his staff but they seem unconcerned and dishearted but I favor his results. Particularly because I want larger implants. Not "porn star" big but upwards of D-DD effects. However I'm a college student and I live in Pennsylvania so it would be most fiscally responsible and less time/travel consuming to go to Dr. D. I have family in San Diego so hotel fare wouldn't be an issue if I go with Pousti but airfare would. I'm really torn.

Did u look at all 6 pages of before & after? http://www.poustiplasticsurgery.com/photo-gallery/results.cfm?page=1&Category=44

I personally don't care for what I see on there, but it's your own decision.

And Dr. D can do as big as u want. Only limiting factor might be if you're going with silicone, then what he can put in, goes by how big of an implant he can fit through the areolar incision. I'm a 34DD, & prob would be considered a D just by looking at me with clothes on. They look bigger in person than they do in my pics

Now do they look round, or have a torpedo look? Did the surgeon fix your areola?

Round. I'll post an updated pic for u.

Awesome thanks :) that will be so helpful

I posted (1) picture that I took just now.

They looked bigger in person at the time of those pictures, & now even a little bigger than then... I guess my muscle & skin finally relaxed all the way. SO GREAT NOT TO FEEL GROSSED OUT BY THE APPEARANCE OF MY BREASTS

How tall are you, and what was your bwd? I also have tubular and trying to decide between 350 or 400 CC.
  • Reply
5'7" & idk what my bwd is. I'm a medium framed girl, & I definitely wouldn't want them any bigger. I wanted a natural look where a stranger walking passed me on the street wouldn't know they weren't real. Glad I didn't go any bigger, & prob still would've been very happy with the 350s. If anything, sometimes I feel like they're ALMOST ;) too big.

Sorry, I just saw this now. I'm glad I could help. I'd definitely recommend my surgeon. I looked at surgeon's websites all over the country, & I only saw one or 2 others that even came close to having the as close to perfect results I was looking for, & they were both in Cali. Surprisingly NYC was really lacking in the quality & expertise I was looking for, & they were charging thousands more than DeLuca. Any more questions, don't hesitate to ask :)

Did you get a lift with your procedure or just areolar ?
  • Reply
I got implants with a lift, through the areola
  • Reply
You look amazing! Where did you get your vit E that you're massaging with?
  • Reply
No, oral Vit E & massage with Bio-Oil

Fantastic results. I'm still like your "before" and I can't imagine being on the other side. My bf is coming with me and I'm hoping we'll be able to also do some touristy things so he's not just stuck playing babysitter. I imagine there's heaps to do there. I'm still new on this site so I'm figuring everything out eg messaging, following certain posts etc :)
