Couldn't Be Happier - Bel Air, MD

I've always had small boobs and after...

I've always had small boobs and after breastfeeding they deflated. So I had ugly, small boobs and lost a lot of confidence. I knew I wanted a breast augmentation, but I was so scared of surgery and implants. I did so much research about implants, the procedure, and plastic surgeons in my area. I was really nervous at my consultation, but my plastic surgeon made me feel at ease. I walked in scared and nervous, and walked out excited and hopeful. Making the decision to get implants was not an easy one, but I am so glad I did, and so happy with my results.

I would suggest to anyone considering a breast augmentation to do a lot of research. Learn all you can, not only about the risks, but also about the details of recovery. I knew what to expect from my recovery and that made things a lot easier. I didn't worry as much because I knew what was normal. I watched a lot of videos and read a lot of forum posts. No two people are the same, so everyone's results will vary, and it gave me a range of results from many women. Results aren't instant, it takes time and patience.

The first week of recovery was the hardest, not only physically, but emotionally as well. Every day I noticed significant changes. It helped to take pictures, even though they were clothed, so I could see the changes and it lifted my spirits. The first two weeks, I did as little as I could. I didn't want to mess anything up. After he went back to work, I still took it easy and eased back into my normal activities. I'm still easing back into things.

I love my results. I love the shape, the size, the feel. I feel like they fit me perfect, like they have always been my own. I like that they look big naked and are easily hidden in certain clothes. I didn't want my augmentation to be obvious, but I also was worried about being too small. Couldn't be happier.

One is settling a little bit slower than the other, but that's normal and to be expected since they are two different surgeries. I know a lot of women worry about this. They were sore for a while, but now they are only sore in the morning, aka "morning boob". My steri strips are still holding tight, but I'm glad, it eases my worry about pulling at my incisions. So I haven't seen my incisions, but my next checkup appointment is next week. I will update after then.

Congratulations! What type and size implants did you get? Did you have any help with your children during your recovery or are they old enough to perhaps help you? :) Have you had the pleasure of tossing your old bras yet? Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf!

Feeling great. I have no more soreness and my incisions look amazing. I really can't believe how good my incisions look. You can barely tell they are there now, so I know they are just going to look better with time.

I couldn't be happier with my results and am so happy to have found Dr. Horowitz. He and his office manager, Michele, are always so great to me. I was really nervous and scared at first, but after my initial consultation my worries were gone. Dr. Horowitz answered all of my many questions and never made me feel rushed. I feel as though he really cares about my well-being and he's exceeded my expectations. I always feel comfortable in his office and have complete trust in him. He is great at what he does, truly an artist, and I highly recommend him.
