Much-need Breast Augmentation After Breastfeeding Three Kids - Atlanta, GA

I knew i wanted breast augmentation done but...

I knew i wanted breast augmentation done but waited until i was done having kids. I am glad i finally put me first and did something for me. My husband was ans has been very supportive .. I am now three weeks post op and still have a long way before the final outcome but everyday i see little changes and i am loving my tatas. I got 400CC right and 425 right. I went to the LAzenze and La vie yesterday and was measuring 36 DD which was unexpected. I thought i would be a full C. I dont mind the I started my Breast massages yesterday and can waiting for girls to drop and fluff.

when will these girls fluff..

I think I'm getting impatient. .I want to drop and fluff already. I had to wait three weeks before starting breast massage so hopefully will start to see more changes soon. Started using scar fade cream on my incisions yesterday. I prefer the tape but couldn't find any here.

4 weeks update

Breast is still but it is not so hard and high anymore. With the exercises it is getting soft and not so high

A lil disappointed but

Ok, I went without any knowledge of what size will fit my frame .. At my preop, I was given a book to choose the look I was going for. Well I did and the nurse went back out and came back in and said 400cc 425 will work. I dont think I'm even close to size I chose. Oh well I should had known better not to trust a nurse who were in a such a hurry at the end of the day. I guess she just wanted me out and made it seems like the Dr recommended the size. He is such a skillful Dr., I just wish when it came to sizing he was the one actually dealing with the patient. I look flat still haven't fluff yet despite massages @ 6 weeks. Only time will tell. Have three month postop appointment in July so we shall see what the good dr thinks..

Almost 2 months

Have some comparison pictures. Breast is softening. Still have a long to get. Take a look. Will be two months on Tuesday.

pre vs post

Just found one of my pre pic. Comparing it to my post so far. The rain is crazy here, I pray we don't get any severe flood this year. Looking forward to my three month post follow up appointment in July

3 months update

I'm beginning to love these girls..I see the changes everyday. My left boobs is still a little high but it will get there hopefully.
Atlanta Plastic Surgeon

I travel from Calgary , AB . Canada. I choose to go to Atlanta, as I have a sister living there who was a great help. and I didn't have to stay at a hotel. I did not my research and Dr Colgrove had great reviews and he had a Breast Aug special going on. He have great bedside manner and his staff were very professional. The lady who did my preop consultation seem to be a hurry and I felt a little rush. She only brought 400 CC/425 inplant to try on based on the picture I selected other than that everything was great. I'm planning on getting my tummy tuck with diastisis recti repair with him at the end of the year when I have more vacation time .

Well I just read your latest post and I have to agree with you on feeling rushed on picking a size. I was alone in when it came to actually picking a size, my husband was out of town working, and she didn't really give her advice or opinion. I needed some sort of an opinion but overall I'm happy. I do wish I had gone bigger but I'm not so sure they would have fit, lol?! But I go back in mid June for another post op appointment and then we will discuss a revision. My left boob is a little lower and of course that makes my nipple high. I hope it will be a simple surgery. I know you will see a big change when the start to drop and fluff and when the swelling goes down. It took at least 3 or 4 months for my swelling to go away completely and even between month 5 or 6 and now 9 months I see changes. Waiting is the hardest part I think. Please don't judge them too soon they will be totally different each month from here on out. Good luck and chin up girl, you're looking awesome :)

I just posted few pics, take a look and let me k ow what you think.. my scars are great and I'm not too happy but not that disappointed either. I'm still better than before just not the right size I was hoping for but it is still early so I am still hopeful. I am planning on getting my Tummy tuck @ the end of year so if there's no improvement, I'll hope he can revised them then. Only time will tell

No exercise for three week said Dr C.. So i do t thin you will be able to train . Find a date when you can afford to be of training. The pain was not so bad though. I had surgery on Thursday by monday I was back at work but I sit almost all day at work so that help. I like the size just wish I had more upper pole fullness but it just could be that I haven't fluff yet as it still feel tight on top. But will see after few months

Congratulations! You look fantastic on your photos...thank you for sharing! Glad to hear your husband and family have been supportive. You're right that you will see gradual changes over time. Hang in there as you're still healing.

You may want to share your good news with other women who have had Breast Aug Surgery in April 2014. Sometimes it's nice to "heal" with someone else in the same situation!
