My plStic surgeon is Dr.Nakano in Duluth GA. I am 5'2 at 135 pounds. A single mom in a very driven business.The price for my BA and TT was amazing. I had my preop on feb21 with my best friend. Now, I am having my surgery on this upcoming Wednesday. I am freakin out but constantly praying that everything goes excellent. I am a single mom that is pursing my dreams and my purpose. I believe this surgery will continue to bring out my very best. I'm just praying for the very best and not worrying about my results bc I trust my PS. Dr. Nakano staff is soooo amazing , patient, caring. Again, I'm nervous but am so ready to look at my new body. Those that believe in Christ pray for me ! I will keep everyone posted on my new body.

Hope everything goes well for you!

My surgery is tomorrow at 8am. I'm so ready to get it over and done... And healed... And back to normal. Lol. I'm trying to stay calm around my daughter. I can tell she wants everything to go well. I am excited and nervous all at he same time. I've said several prayers. Now, I'm just waiting for amazing results ! So again .. Pls pray for me ! I will post pictures tomorrow after surgery ladies !!!
Dr. Nakano is AMAZING!!!! Two things...wear a t-shirt under your compression garment or else it will cut into you and cause blisters. Ask QUESTIONS! He is a type of person that will not freely tell you hints/tricks with aftercare unless you ASK!!!!

Day of surgery, I wake up feeling sleepy, hungry, and a lil nauseous. I'm thinking my nerves are kicking in. I have showered with my anti-bacterial soap. I'm just waiting to leave for this 3 hour drive. I only slept for two hours last pm. I woke up praying this morning. I'm just so ready to get it over. If its The Lord will today.. My surgery should be completed by 1130 this am. I can't believe today is my surgery day. I have never had surgery before ... And to think its cosmetic ! I just want to have a wonderful experience from this entire process. I'm praying and praying and praying for mercy. I will update pictures by the afternoon. Thanks ladies for being so supportive ! Xoxox
Good Luck:)

Today is 3 days after operation. I felt a ton of pressure from my breast and stomach. I was nauseated, full of pressure, slight pain. I'm feeling much better today ( thank God). I just wanted to let everyone know that God has been sooo good to me with this experience and more. My postoperative is on Monday ... Hopefully my drain will be out. I will update pics ASAP !
Congratulations on your surgery. I also had mine done on the 21st so I'm 3 days post op. God has been on this journey with me throughout. I have some amazing testimonies. The Lord is ever so faithful to his own. Wishing us all a speedy and stress free recovery. God bless. Xxxx

Ok ladies. I'm feeling sooo much better. I'm not on my pain meds anymore. I feel great about my results. Tummy feels weird ( numb). I just want to say one other thing. God( Jesus, Christ ) is so good ! If you don't believe in him ... Try him for 30 days ! He repairs, restores, rejuvenate and much much more !!! I can't express enough how blessed this experience has been. Try Him !!!
1 week post op! Amazing milestone right?? God is soooo good! Sometimes you wonder if his grace extends to cosmetic surgery! Then you realise once you're covered by his grace, everything else is fully covered! Just like a fully comprehensive life insurance policy! I'm healing so well. I see my PS in a few hours and I'm excited to see my scars and BB. Happy and stress free healing to us all:-) you look totally awesome!!

Lol. I can tell you that I can attest that his grace and mercy also applies to cosmetic. I have a personal testimony that I will share later with you. Yes, I'm so excited bc I love my results. I'm still a lil weak but gaining strength daily. I'm just trying to remember to walk upward instead of being slump over. Favor on today wih your follow-up. I feel like having a praise break !!!

I've been having some serious praise breaks honey! I'm so elated and eternally grateful that I find myself breaking out in worship! Lol

I am on my tenth day ... Everyday gets better for me. Just ready to be able to put on a heel . Still walking slow and not upright at 100 %. We're going on vacation this week ... So I need to be able to move !!!
You look amazing!!! Thanks for sharing your story and your pictures!! Happy healing! Can I ask you a question about your breasts? I'm struggling with what size I want. Yours look great. That's the look I would want. What was your measurement before and how did you determine the size you would go with? Are they heavy? Were they implanted over the muscle or under and are they gel or saline? Thanks so much. I may show your after picture to my surgeon when I go for my sizing appointment in a few weeks!
Reply
Hey,Thanks ... I selected saline at 420cc. They are a good size. I would have went more with just 400 but I am liking these more daily. I had them implanted sub muscular. They are not heavy at all . I did want to be a small D bc I was a size 34 B before surgery. I wanted to go up two cups sizes. I am currently at a 34d in my breast. I'm only 12 days post op. I hope that this was a great help for you. Feel free to ask more questions if needed. Thanks !

Happy Easter! He is awesome!

I have updated my 6 week post op pics. I am still healing in my navel. Also, I'm still swollen in abdomen ( stop wearing compression garment 2 weeks after surgery). I don't recommend anyone doing that as I have to wear it now for better results. I love looking at the body I knew pre baby. I recommend my doctor to everyone !

Almost 3 mons post op

How many Cc's did you get? I saw Dr. Nakano on the 3rd and had decided on 492cc's but now I'm thinking its too big.
Reply
I have 420cc and mine are huge. Trust everything he says because he knows what he is talking about. He told me that I should go smaller and I didn't. Now, I can shoot for playboy.

You look Amazing , I'm having my Surgery with Dr Nakano on July 5th !!! I'm soooo Excited and can't wait to get the body I know I have under all that lose skin off mine lol

I year post op today

Yes ladies ... This is not my best pics as I am not in sexy mode this am. I'm a lil tired from world. I just got an email to post a year review .. So here are some pics. I will update some better ones in he next couple weeks (vacation time ) ! One thing I will say is that I love my results . I wish that I would have went smaller in my breast. My profession is always business attire. I feel like I'm always trying to find the best cover the girls up. Esp, when you don't want to come off as being too sexy .
You were my motivation! I went to so many consultations and I finally decided to go with Dr. Nakano - it was love at first sight, lol. But of course I still had some concerns but seeing your results and reading through your jorney I feel a lot more confiedent in my decision. I am scheduled to do a TT on June 12th with and even though I am completely nervous and scared I believe I have made the right choice. You look great!!
Reply
Hey. Please know that you will look great ! He is truly an amazing doctor. Pray about it and let God handle the rest.

A year and a 1/2 later

My body still is looking really good ... Considering I don't work out ! My boobs are a lil bigger than I want ... Considering my back hurts occasionally. I should have listened to my Ps recommendation of 375cc. However , I am happy overall with having a banging body again. I would def go smaller in breast considering I have a curvy bottom. I would recommend everyone to my doctor. Love Dr. Nakano
