- 27 Sep 2012
I had so little breast tissue (size AA) so Dr. Larsen chose to place my implant under the muscle and I got silicone instead of saline implants. The implants were 375 cc (I highly recommend doing the "rice bag" trick at home to try out the different sizes you are considering). I am only about 2 weeks post op but so the current size I am now is most likely slightly larger than it will end up being but I think it will end up being a full C (possibly small D). The actual surgery was an absolute walk in the park! I had it on a Friday morning and was off all pain medications (including Tylenol) by that Sunday. I went to their office on Monday and Wednesday for follow up visits and they were very pleased as well! I had ZERO pain throughout the entire recovery (except for being slightly sore) and wished I would have done this years ago. I was basically asleep and lounging around all Friday and Saturday recovering, but was driving by Monday and tailgating at a football game the next weekend!
Overall it was a great experience and couldn't have asked for anything more!
My Doctor: Alan N. Larsen, MD
I went to Dr. Larsen for a breast augmentation after I was referred to his office from a friend. From day 1 (the initial phone call) I had nothing but positive experiences with them. I called to just ask about some facts on the procedure and the office staff kindly took the time to sit and explain every single one of my questions. I had been going back and forth on getting this procedure done for a while and once I found his office I never looked back! I scheduled an appointment for the following week and the ladies in the office took so much time to sit down and explain what to expect, what would work for my body type, and so much more. What impressed me the most was that they all (Dr. Larsen & the ladies) really took into account what I wanted and not just what they thought I should get. I like to run and did not want to have extremely large breasts, just ones that would better complement my body type (I went from AA to about a C) and they completely respected that. They brought out pictures of "Before & Afters" of previous patients that had similar body structures and showed me why they thought certain sizes would look best and really helped me narrow down by decision. They were completely patient with me and I never felt rushed when I was in their office or like they were simply trying to maximize the amount of patients they saw each day. They always sat down and answered any questions I had and were so re assuring. The girls are so nice and really make you feel welcomed and pass ZERO judgement on you. Everyone is always smiling and seems genuinely happy to be there which makes you enjoy going there that much more! The office is extremely clean and wonderfully decorated, along with very large patient rooms. They always make you feel so comfortable by providing robes or anything you need. I scheduled the surgery for about 2 months later and they kept checking in all along, which shows how much they truly care about each patient.
