My name is Tamara. I am 35 years old. Before I had my procedure I was a 40 D, hopefully after my procedure I will be a 34B. I mainly wanted this procedure because being an active duty soldier, it has become a terrible burden completing certain physical activites.
I have already had my procedure, but here is a...

Pre Op - I arrived to my appointment, I was seen by the Plastic Surgery staff. My wait time was about 10 minutes. After my appointment I went upstairs to pre admit for my procedure,did my vitals, met with anesthesiology, did my bloodwork, and got my prescriptions for after my procedure. All of this took about 3 hours to complete.
I was told that afternoon what time to check in for procedure the next day.
Operating Day - I arrived to the hospital at 930 am, I was given a private room, and scrubs to change into for the operation. Unfortunately, there was an emergency the day of my operation so normally you would check in 2 hours before your operation, but I did not have my procedure performed until 130 pm, therefore I ended up waiting 4 hours. No big deal to me, things happen, I rather wait, then have to rush.
The procedure took 4.5 hours. My doctor reported that it took him a little longer because he wanted to make sure everything lined up correctly. I am in no way upset about that, I rather line up properly than regret it later.
I stayed at the hospital for 1.5 hours after the procedure to recover, then I was released home.

When I was approved for my procedure it only took 1 week for my referral to go through, and then I had a surgery date with in a month. Usually in the amy this can take anywhere between 3-6 months. Col Zambrano was patient with me, and answered all my questions. The staff at the clinic was patient also, they gave me insight to what I would experience, and let me know how previous patients handle situations after the procedure. I feel that the clinic prepared me for this procedure so that it would be a success. During my surgery the DR took his time and did not rush through to make sure the best job was done
