Ok, so here is my story. I am in my late twenties and just got engaged. I wanted to feel like a woman on my wedding day, so I decided I'd rather have a small wedding and big boobs :). I went with silicone unders, incision in the crease. I was an A before surgery and with 600s, I'm about a DD now (I'm tall so its not as enormous as you might think).
I have never had surgery before, so I was nervous. The staff at Long Beach Community exceeded my expectations. The nurse stayed with me the whole time before surgery and let my fiance come with me all the way to the elevator. Handsome Dr. D came in and marked me up. He asked me what music I liked and I was so nervous I couldn't even think or speak! Then, the happy drugs kicked in.
Getting wheeled into the OR and going under didnt scare me a bit. It was actually kinda fun and I remember thinking what a kicka$$ kinda person you have to be to spend your mornings blasting the Drop Kick Murphies while you operate on a woman to give her fantastic breasts. The next thing I remember, Dr. D is asking me if I like gold or silver. What? Gold, I said...out come the mardi gras beads...apparently, I had my new breasts! Going under was such a quick time lapse, that I didn't know it was already over. I found the whole thing strange why someone would give me mardi gras beads before surgery! I was shaky when I awoke, but in no pain and none of the tight feeling I've read about. I just wanted to sleep and was very slow to move. On a scale of one to ten, I was a two. Honestly, it was that easy. There was a small amount of nausea.
I slept for two hours and was then released. The ride home was fine and I pretty much was out of it for the next couple of days. I would say that during the first four days, my pain never exceeded a 4. If I just had the BA that Friday, I could have easily been back at work on Tuesday. Not 100%, but I could have worked. I had lipo as well, so I stayed out longer because of that. I had frankenboob for about a week as the implants were tight under the muscle. Again, there was no overwhelming feeling of tightness except during cold weather which really hurt. Keep your new boobies warm at night, ladies. Trust me on that one!
The incisions and placement are flawless. After two weeks, I am impressed by the progress and I am starting to see what will be some very beautiful cleavage. The implants are still high and will continue to drop. Even now, it has made my figure proportional and my breasts look so beautiful, it is ridiculous. I have perfect, fantastic, spectacular breasts, something I NEVER expected! I LOVE them!!! They are also very easy to hide, but now I realize I dont want to hide them as much as I thought I would!
I am so happy and realize that its in good part to choosing the right surgeon. I would (and already have) absolutely recommend my surgeon. IMO, the most important thing for any woman is choosing a surgeon that is ASPS certified. Did you know that any doctor can perform plastic surgery? ASPS certification ensures that you are working with a highly qualified plastic surgeon. I will return to update as necessary.

If I had a time-machine, I would not to high profile implants. I feel like they stick out kinda like torpedoes; that being said, they look pretty good in most clothing. Tube tops are out though...my boobs look fake and a half in tube tops.
If you are wanting to go big, like me (D/DD) and high-profile, they may not look natural.
I think that if I had a do-over, I would have asked about a moderate plus or moderate profile.
The liposuction is still one of the best decisions I ever made. Eternally grateful.

Dr. D is ASPS certified and his work was flawless. My fiancé and I were actually admiring the almost invisible incisions. The placement is exquisite. Amazing. Plus, he is deliciously handsome. I came home and told my fiance, 'sorry, baby, I got a crush on my plastic surgeon!' lol! Totally happy and will go back for any future procedures.
