Plainly stated I have never had a body that I feel ideal, as a kid I was muscular but still chubby and have always been larger than average. This last year with a lot of help and support I managed to lose 108lbs and my boobs volunteered as tribute, and my poor tummy never stood a chance. Plastic surgery although it was an option I didn't really consider going under anesthesia with out reason because I have two small children. However, I play a rough contact sport and was diagnosed with a hernia in my stomach and decided if I am going under anyway, may as well take this opportunity to go at least investigate plastic surgery. My initial visit to the office I was very pleased with the staff's friendliness and was very pleased when I met the surgeon and his demeanor was overwhelmingly positive and I felt he listened to my desires and expectations.
Using a 3D visualizing system he was about to show me simulated outcomes for different sized implants. In retrospect I do wish I had asked to see a different implant profile and a smaller size just to give myself a better point of reference. We discussed high profile, silicon gel implants between 650cc-800cc. Prior to my weight loss I wore a 42F and currently wearing a very saggy, small 34B. I went home after the appointment and pondered and researched and saw that bigger implants carry a lot of risk and I am specifically concerned about the weight of the implants with my physical activities and with bottoming out. Dr. Agullo's office was very pleasant when I called and asked to have a second consult.
Between the first and second consult the office had a really nice make over and the reception area is much bigger. Unfortunately, they were running really late but Dr. Agullo is worth the wait. He assured me that because silicone is lighter than saline and they implants will be placed under the muscle he is confident that 800ccs would be the best choice but its up to me and I can go as low as 650cc; I'm still not decided. He also took another look at my tummy and I showed him my hip tattoo and it looks like after surgery I will have one less tattoo. I asked a lot of questions and left feeling even more confident. Dr. Agullo and his staff have been incredibly helpful thus far and his patient coordinator Erika has answered a BILLION questions and been incredibly helpful. Just cant wait for my surgery date to get here because I am so nervous, excited and ready to start healing.
