Saline Subpectoral Augmentation - Charlotte, NC

Hi, I am 31 years old, 5'5", and weigh 153 pounds....

Hi, I am 31 years old, 5'5", and weigh 153 pounds. I have always been small chested and have always wanted bigger breast. Now the day is finally here! I am a 34 B and I am going to a full C, small D. I loved being pregnant because my boobs did get bigger, but it was short lived. Now that the time is here, I am getting really nervous.


This week I went in for my pre-op. I really like my doctor. He makes me feel so comfortable without feeling creepy. The staff is so very nice. I was given my booklet on my do's and don'ts and given my prescriptions to get filled.


Starting off there are three pages of medicines that you have to stop taking 2 weeks before you surgery. The only thing you are allowed to take is tylenol basically. I also had to start taking a multi-vitamin and a regular vitamin C. So I started taking Woman's Ultra Mega Active ( 200mg/2x day) and NatureMade vitamin C (500mg/2x day) which added up to 1200 mg a day of Vitamin C.


I also had to go ahead and fill my prescriptions because I have to take them with me the day of surgery. The four prescriptions are Soma (for muscle spasm), Duricef (anit-biotic), Phenergan (for nausea), and Nucynta (for pain). With my insurance co-pay my prescriptions were $105.00.


My surgery is in the morning at 7:30 so I can't eat or drink anything after 10:00 pm tonight. I am excited but scared. I hope all goes well. Will update soon!

It's the day after my surgery. I am very sore. I don't remember much that went on yesterday. They ended up putting 400 cc in each breast which will give me a full C. Even though I am sore, I am so happy that I finally got it done. Will post again soon.

It has been 1 month since my surgery. I am so happy with my results! Everything is settling the way it is suppose to.I bought my first bra although it isn't quite time to wear it. I tried on a 38 C and 36 D and the 36 D fit great! Now waiting on the Dr. to give me the ok to wear it!

Dr. Liszka is the Dr. at Ballantyne Plastic Surgery. I heard of him off the radio. I looked him up and went in for a consult. Very profession staff. I feel they will take good care of me and will see me as many times as necessary before and after surgery with no extra surgeon fee's.

I will be using Dr. Liszka as well, he told me I would be fine with saline or silicone. I am still a little worried about rippling or not feeling real with saline. Are you happy you chose saline?

You look great! My surgery is Tuesday.and I'm nervous, but we have a similar build and seeing your results is encouraging.

I hope your feeling a bit more comfortable since your op. I'm looking forward to seeing your results as you are a similar height and weight to me. I have 700cc implants which are being removed and replaced next week as they are way to big for me. I'd like to be a b/c cup but no more so I was thinking of a 300cc.

Hey there fellow Charlottean! Dr. Liszka did my surgery a month ago. I am very happy with the results. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to inbox me. I have been very happy with Ballantyne Plastic Surgery. It was about a week to 10 days before I felt human! At one month post op, I'm almost back to doing everything I did before the surgery. Happy healing!

Hey!! I'm getting my lift and implants in one week.. What do I need to expect?
  • Reply
I don't know what to expect with getting a lift. My cut was below the breast. I don't even hurt with my cut, but around the sides and tops of my breast. Good luck!
