Getting more & more EXCITED can't wait to have my future BOOBIES!!!

I have been thinking about having a breast...

I have been thinking about having a breast augmentation for the last 2 years but could not find the courage to see a PS. I'm tired of having to wear double padded bras only to take it off & see that I'm flat chested. I unfortunately wasn't as lucky a my sisters who are all well in doubt, full D's. After much thought i finally went & had my initial consultation on June 14th. I was extemely nervous that day, but the entire office staff was very nice & pleasant they made me feel very comfortable & at ease. I met with the nurse who discussed size, price, took photos, & showed me videos. I left the office extremely excited & nervous with lots to think about. I've decided to go ahead & proceed with the BA. I'm thinking about going with the 800cc high profile silicon gel implants...really liked the way they looked. Going to meet Dr. Rios on the 30th of July to further discuss sizing & my scheduled date for Aug. 30th. Don't know how to feel, have mixed emotions...this is something I've been wanting this for a really long time. Any feedback & words of encouragement are greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you've gathered the courage and you're moving in the right direction. Have you shared your plans with your sisters? Will any of them be able to help you the first few days of your recovery? Here is a list of items you may want to purchase and set up for your recovery. Keep us posted!

Well, I do! If this is something you feel strongly enough to actually see a doc and follow thru on, do it!! Do it as soon as possible. Find the doc u truly love and trust, set your appointment and NEVER look back!! I promise you, you will feel great, look great and ask yourself "wth didn't I do it sooner!! I just had 700cc's and I could not be happier! The surgery was a total breeze and in all honesty, recovery isn't even that bad. Nothing close to even giving birth if u have kids. Sooooo do it!!! And go big or go home I say!! Lol hope that helps. Good luck on your journey

Disappointed...When I originally booked my consultation I wanted a BA with Lipo to my abdomen

When I originally booked my consultation I wanted a BA with Lipo to my abdomen because I have a lipoma right above my belly button. Forgot to mention in my prior post I'm 5'9 200lbs with scoliosis. I was hoping that I could do everything at once but was told by Dr. Rios nurse that a lipoma removal could be covered by my insurance but had to be done by a general surgeon. I saw a general surgeon last week & came out very disappointed. Dr. Hilmy the consulting general surgeon was very rude, no bedside manner whatsoever. Was told that he would have to make a vertical incision on my abdomen which caused some concern for me. After I ask several questions he told me "well you seemed to be very concerned about the incision/scar i suggest you see a PS", mind you this Dr. does cosmetic procedures as well. Need to mention I've worked with Dr. Hilmy on a professional level & his attitude and mannerism have been wonderful but as a patient he was extremely rude & arrogant. He basically told me that it was medically necessary but that I should go see PS instead. I call my PS office & notified them of my consultation with GS & was told that they do not deal with insurance. I'm disappointed only because I wanted to get everything over & done with at once. Hoping to find & consult with another GS soon so I can do the surgery the same time that I'm out of work for my BA.

Sorry to hear about your latest GS/PS insurance dilemma. Don't give up though...hopefully something will work out for you soon!

I wish I knew more about the lipo part but I can say one thing. Not Matter what a doc is doing to my body, don't settle for any GS or PS that you don't trust 100%. Bottom line!! There are way too many GS out there for you to settle!! Keep us posted!!

I'm so glad to hear you are taking the plunge. You won't regret it! I promise! Now, as for being scared, phhhhssss. No big deal. And I had never ever had any kind of surgery before myself. Post op pain is moderate at best and is short lived I assure you! a bit uncomfortable for a few days. By day 4 post op, you wll probably be at Walmart picking out a new bikini. Don't worry!! The nice rack you will have will make you forget that discomfort post haste!!! Lol. Good luck and I hope you get wonderful results!! I would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Ladies HELP!!!

I went to go see my PS on Tuesday & it went very well. I'm getting more & more excited as the days go by. My BA is set & scheduled for Aug. 30th, I actually got a call from the office today to see if I wanted to bump up my date to the 13th but because of work think I'm going to have to stick with my original date. Ladies I need your help...I had my mind set on going with 800cc silicon gel implants but after talking with my PS he said I could actually go with either one saline or silicone if I wanted to considering the amount of breast tissue I had. I like how he was honest & not trying to be money hungry, he mentioned if I wanted to save money I could go with the saline. Money is not an option to me I just want the absolute best results. So ladies tell me what is your take on saline vs silicone. I also went for a second opinion with a GS & he too recommended that I go see my PS. I mentioned to Dr. Rios about my possible lipoma & he said that he could help me with that too, although he couldn't promise me my skin would retract after the Lipo he said my best bet would be to have a tummy tuck after I have kids (which I have yet to be blessed with). Please HELP!!!
I am not sure what you decided on. I had planned Silicone but after my sizing consult with my PS I decided to go with Saline TransAx and under muscle! My surgery is very close to yours - Sept 4. I wish you a speedy recovery!

Will be going under in less than 12 hrs. I decided on 800cc hp silicone gel under muscle. I'm so excited & surprised my nerves haven't hit me yet. Thank you & best of luck to you.
