Twenty years ago I had my 32Bs upsized, and for 20 years I was self-conscious about how very large they were, how COLD my saline implants always made me feel, and in general was very unhappy with the results, but was afraid to go under the knife again. The doctor performing my original surgery put in implants that left me a 32DD which was far larger than I wanted and totally dismissed my requests for smaller implants. This past year, I interviewed many doctors before selecting one who actually seemed to hear me. I am so happy to say that I have my own healthy perky breasts back--after explant only. I did not opt for a lift and have had wonderful results.
It has now been 6 months later and I am very happy to say that I have my natural breasts, no lift, no pain. I am happier than I ever imagined I could be with my body. I am also very thankful that she is the type of doctor who will encourage minimally invasive proceedures vs. multiple unnecessary surgery. I had many thourough follow-up visits and definitely the most seemless procedure across the board I could imagine.
My Doctor: Elizabeth Lee, MD
Dr. Elizabeth Lee was the only doctor I interviewed who "got it" that I didn't want implants. Three other doctors tried to convince me that I would be better off with smaller implants or to do explant with a lift or smaller implants plus a lift. Dr. Lee spent an entire hour with me discussing options and truly getting a picture of what would work for me. Together we opted to go for explant only and reassess the possibility of a lift after 6 months. Dr. Lee explained the miraculous way that the skin will adapt post-removal of implant.
