Excited and Nervous at the Same Time!!! - Augusta, GA

Went to my consultation today with Dr Ewart August...

Went to my consultation today with Dr Ewart August Plastic Surgery. The staff was great and friendly. Took my hubby with me because he hasnt been 100% sold on me getting this procedure to wanted to Dr to discuss all options, procedure etc. He left feeling better than when he arrived. We went ahead and scheduled the surgery for the 31st with my post op on the 28th. I live in Charlotte NC 2 1/2 hours away. Not a bad drive though. Will keep everyone posted on my Post Op and the results before and after photos of the procedure. I think Im going with 500-550 cc's. Not a small girl so wanna make it count. Please offer any encouragement or advice.

Thanks a bunch for the well wishes. Yes I went ahead and scheduled the date at the consultation. Just had to pay a 250 deposit to hold my surgery date and they gave me the option of having my pre op blood work done there (which is included in the price) or to have it done in Charlotte. I made the choice to just have it done there so I will be going down on the 28th for pre op and to make my final payment and then back early a.m. on the 31st for the procedure. Got a huge body pillow from Walmart for the ride back:-). I'll start posting photos as soon as I get back from the surgery of both the before and after!!!! Oh yea just a heads up they take care credit as a financing option. Great repayment plan and min payment amounts! ! Good to look into if you don't already have financing in place.
It's for procedure....implants up to 550 cc. If I go over 550 I think it increases by 100.00 ...anestesia...garmets...lipo above my buttock in the back area to give more definition..follow up appointments. . Pretty much everything except for the stay there. I'm gonna have my hubby take me back home same day and return when it's time for the drains to come out. They also offered a shot that was 385 that is supposed to keep the surgical area numb for 3 to 4 days but I declined that thinking I can get away with just pain meds. I hope I don't end up regretting that:-)

Great! Do you have to oay it all before the surgery or can you keep giving payments after?
Pay**
If you use care credit it's an actual credit card so they take the payment before surgery from the card and then you make the minimum monthly payment back to care credit. If your paying cash though all has to be paid by your pre op visit.

13 days Away!!!

13 Days and counting! !!

Hi there. So does this mean you are having the solid implants?meaning they only do solid in the US right? im confused about which implants they use in the US. I was planning a trip to mexico or brazil because they do the Cohesive gel implants there and they say feels so much more natural..

You'll love Dr Ewart!! He did my breast implants! A true magician! I can't praise him enough!

I continue to hear great things about him. It makes me feel really confident in how's things are going to turn out. I hear he is a protectionist which is a GREAT thing in a cosmetic surgery scenario because he will make sure his work looks great! !! I'm excited as heck!!!

Day 1

Day 1 had my procedure this morning. In a good amount of pain right now but it's bearable. Huge difference in my appearance. Hope it goes down just a little which I'm sure it will.

Hope you are feeling better, I've been nauseous after surgery when I had breast implants. Can't wait to hear more about your healing process and see pictures...getting my butt implants and fat graft on April 1st!!

Congrats in your upcoming surgery. Just be sure u have someone available to take care of u because I'm unable to do much of anything. Today is better than yesterday though and I'm hoping tomorrow will be even better than that.
How you feeling cllanier.. better? Give us an updated. Its been 5 days Ps. Did you get intramuscular? X x

What a difference a day makes

Feeling MUCH better today. Getting around much better. No where near the same amounts of pain as day 1 and 2. Feel like things are looking up. Love the look already although not allowed to remove my garmet until post op but the projection is AWESOME..... had to up my fluid intake because of I sipping instead of drinking. Hopefully tomorrow will be even better

I m actually on day 3 intramuscular likely the reason for all the pain. Feeling much better today though. Actually able to walk and get around without assistance
Thanks! I'm very excited i'm sure you can relate to the pre-op excitement. I also live in NC but I'll be going a bit further for my surgery. I will have my best friend with me to take care of me and with everything thanks for reiterating that bc I tend to think I could do it all since it's "just my butt" lol. Glad to hear you are progressively healing and not still throwing up. I'm most nervous about just waking up out of surgery and infections.

I was excited and nervous pre op. They made me feel some comfortable though the day of surgery and the meds they gave me had me so loopy I didn't know if I was coming or going. I only stayed in recovery maybe an hour once I actually woke up which was really good and there was minimal pain initially because I got the 400.00 numbing shoot which was worth every penny at the time. Pain didn't set in until I got home and I think some of that was because of the 2 1/2 hour ride. Having someone to take care of you though is a must. No getting around it. I normally tolerate pain well but day 1 and 2 was crucial
Just hang in there.. The worst is over Just think of how you'll look soon... hope your not too bored healing.. are you walking around. Going for walks. .. take care!!!!
Thanks for the support. I have been walking around today and plan to get a good walk in tomorrow since the pain is much better

Sneak Peak

Day 4 post op. Sneak peak photos. Up and getting around today. Good walk this morning. Sneak peak of post surgery dr not allowing me to remove garmet so only showing a little. huge difference i think i love it

WOW! lookin good ! so round and bouncy! How are you feeling today? is the pain better? thanks for sharing!!!!
  • Reply
The pain is about 80% BETTER today. I think I've gotten over the hump. Moving around great. Still a little stiff but not painful Just tight and uncomfortable. My husband keeps saying he wants to smack it because it's so round. I'll post more pics Thursday when I get my drains out.

post op tomorrow

Post op appointment tomorrow. Having drains removed. Feeling good. Pain is no more just stiff and tightness. Can't wait to be cleared to shower tomorrow and then I'll take some good pics of the results so far. Looking great so glad I went with the size I did. Not too much but just enough. Happy overall. More photos to come tomorrow. Pretty sure I'll be able to give this experience a thumbs up at the end of the day:-)

4 weeks post op 11 lbs lighter

I'm 4 weeks 3 days post op. Had a minor set back with the opening of my wound. Had to allow it to heal back on its own which has been a slow process but it almost completely closed now. Took another round of antibiotics and keeping the wound clean and dressed has done the trick. Started the super shred diet week 1 and I'm down 11 pounds. The smaller I'm getting the bigger my bum:-) appears to be spreading out as I'm guessing my muscle is relaxing and allowing the implants to take their place. Looks great thus far and I think once I'm healed completely I will be 100% satisfied. The healing process has been lengthy though. Work from home had I needed to go into an office and work or on a job it would have likely been very difficult.

Did your butt fluff at all. I feel like some days mines looks kind of flat but others it looks full. Girls are saying one day it will just start poking out. Did yours? If so when?
  • Reply
I don't think I've gotten to that point yet. I hear it normally happens in a few months although mine is far from flat it's still a good bit smaller than it was the first week but it's also huge compared to what it was before surgery. I got a pretty big implant though so I kind of had no choice but to see a big change early on I went 550cc. It's still stretching out though and still uneven from one side to the other although u can't look at it and tell I can tell by touching and feeling around. I think u have to wait about 2 to 3.months before u see the final results. Early on its still stuck under the tight muscle.
Thats is true. I am just so impatient lol. Mine looks round and perky today but everyday is different. I hope it fluffs soon.

2 months 1 week post op

Still a little sore when I sit for long periods of time. Not completely semetrical on both sides but you cant tell by looking. Movement has come back and its not to hard just firm. Still loving it and still 100% glad I did it. Best money I ever spent hands down
