I was planning on goin 275cc but doctor recommended 350cc- I'm happy she did! I love the way they fit my frame. I can wear a bathing suit in public! Don't need to stuff them :) I don't have to wear padded bras anymore unless I want them to look bigger- Sometimes I wonder if I should've gone a little bit bigger (I dress very modestly) but I figure I just need to lose a little weight around my middle and I'll be fine. They look very natural, not too perky/cleavaged. I feel more confident in bed and naked.
Had a hematoma in my left breast and had to have another surgery 2 weeks after the initial surgery.
It's been 4 months since the 2nd procedure and my breasts and nipples are asymmetrical - I'm wondering if I'll need a revision. Also, the scar on my left incision is not as pretty as my right.
Don't like that they move when I flex or get shivers- didn't know they'd be like that!
WHY I DID IT:
I was always very small/barely there and after kids they looked VERY flat. I wanted my clothes to fit better and to be able to wear a bathing suit confidently (I live near the beach). I didn't feel comfortable topless in front of my husband or being intimate in bed (He honestly didn't mind my barely there chest - he's a 'butt' guy, and agreed to the BA because I was so unhappy).
I am completely happy that I did it. I hope I don't need a revision but if they don't become symmetrical I will (3rd times the charm?).
I was a bit nervous to have the procedure since it was such a big surgery. All went well but did 'taste' some medicine pre surgery, once I got m IV in. That can happen since I had to fast. Post op I threw up and felt nauseas. Didn't feel much pain when I was medicated. Did feel nauseas from medicine though so tried to 'tough it out' with ibuprofen. I wore a band on my chest which made it very uncomfortable and seemed to cause more pain than without it. It sucked that I had to do a second surgery and because I didn't want to deal with the pain all over again (it wasn't as bad at all compared to the first time) and not being able to drive.
They did send a candle and a complimentary coupon with discount off of a laser hair removal procedure (to be used with in one year).
My Doctor: Christa Clark, MD, FACS
My PS: She was very 'by the book' didn't make it much of a personal experience but she suggested the size that made me happy. Besides the operating room hardly saw her, spent more time with a nurse. Very professional, well educated compared to my friend's BA. Staff was friendly enough and place was very clean, discreetly located. Operating room was professional.
