I am pretty slim, but my stomach was never the same after my pregnancy no matter my diet or exercise. I wanted to finally do something about it. My breast augmentation is something I have been thinking about for a long time. I am now 32 A cup and I am looking to be a full B after the surgery. I am doing Silicone implants under the muscle.
I chose to do my surgery in Colombia. I was born there and my family still lives there. I consulted a lot of doctors Via email and phone and did research on my Doctors until I felt comfortable enough to pick the one that would be performing my surgery.
I was surprised about the knowledge and how well prepared these doctors are. Most of the ones I consulted have had training in other counties. It is important that the doctor is part of the SCCP (Colombian association of plastic surgeons) just like in America, they are required specific training and all of their credentials are carefully verified by the association. It is important that the doctor that chose is part of the SCCP.

He gave me the prescription for all of the medicine I will be needing. I was very clear and I emphasized on the fact that I did not want to take my body off balance with the implants, he said he was happy to hear that and advised me to go for 270cc to 290cc for my frame, I am trusting him to choose what's best for me, he has 21 years of experience and it shows. I made sure to show him pictures of what I wanted. I will keep you posted depending on how I feel tomorrow.
Second day and I have survived. Hard to believe

Today I am not as swollen, my breast looked huge, today the bra is looking big on me which is great bc I wanted to remain small. The doctor couldn't have been better. He was amazing, he operated together with a team of surgeons so one hand checks the other. The nurses where on top of it all, they took care of my pain and I did not go 15 minutes without someone checking in on me. I am really happy with the whole process. Can't see the results yet, I have check up on Friday when he will remove the drains, I have 2 that connect to a little disk that I empty twice a day. I will keep you posted, ask any questions :)
I am in less pain and more energetic

I am now less swollen but my boobs look pretty huge! They get better as time goes by, I am still bruised around my belly from the tummy tuck, also swollen. I understand its a slow healing process and patience is key...
I have my second check up tomorrow, lets see how it goes...
I am a lot less swollen

Most of the bruising has cleared up, my stomach still has no sensitivity which is uncomfortable when I touch it, I am making an effort to stand straight so I stretch out the tightens on my abdominal muscles, it's not really painful, just uncomfortable.
My breast look a little uneven but it has been only 11 days since my surgery and it's too early. My breast don't hurt at all and they are a lot softer... Can't wait to travel back home. I feel healthy and in good shape, after only 11 days...

From the beginning of the consultations, my doctor has answered every question, I have been communicating with him via email and he has always answered in a timely manner every single question I asked. We finally spoke on the phone when I was ready to pick him as my doctor and were able to plan the surgery. Still a few weeks I am nervous and excited, but looking forward to it. ... I am here in Colombia, surgery is tomorrow, my doctor is great, great energy and its very apparent he loves what he does and his taste is also something that shows, I believe this matters when you want to look as certain way, my body is athletic and I still want it to look like that after the surgery, just with a little volume on the breasts and more "chiseled". He seemed to understand exactly what I want. Very excited!
