Will Have my Op.saturday January 21st 2012 - Manila, Philippines

I have a very small breast. and i always wanted to...

I have a very small breast. and i always wanted to look proportionate. I am 4''11 less than 100lbs but i do work out so im abit stocky built very petite but not thin. when i dont wear padded bra i do look like i have a chest that belongs to a boy.i thought about it two years ago and been doing my research. I was really scared about the risk and complications then i met my boyfriend and he is really supporting me with my decision.

I told my family atfirst they told me i might have a problem with it in the sooner or later.But i told them atleast ill enjoy feeling like a woman with a real breast. I searched on the net and here are my 4 choices. Dra.Vicki belo at belo medical group, Dr.Manny & Pie Calayan. then Beverly hills the only asian base BH both in Makati manila Philippines.

Then I saw Dr.Edwin Magallona I emailed all them regarding with my tons of questions that holding me back for 2 years now to have it done.But with all of them that I email iit was Dr.Magallona who was very prompt in answering all my questions so i had y first consultaion with him last january 16th. When i was at his clinic he was operating so i waited there was no assistant to talk with at the lobby.but then theres a girl who came who didnt even bother to say hi or maybe because i was just aking myself busy reading.then his nurse assistant told me 30 minutes more to wait and asked me to wait at his office and fill out the form.then there he was I felt comfortable talking to him tried different sizes.

he told me 360cc would be the best size for me cuz i want a natural looking but not so big.i want big but not so big like a porn star the only size i can stretch is up to 390cc but im really feeling good with 360cc he told me after few weeks it will go down alil bit so i can go at 375cc.Im so excited and so nervous about the opt.if u can see while typing now i feel like my tummy is sick.

Implant 375 cc mentor/under the muscles incision is transaxilliary $3500 including the anaesthesia(general) and laboratory work ups post opt.medications for $4000 my expenses including hotel is inlcuded already with meals for two for 4-8 days.

I ended up 350cc.at first day post op i thought it...

i ended up 350cc.at first day post op i thought it was so big so i felt kinda sad that i made a wrong decision but day by day its dropping and the swelling is less then im startin to see the result and starting to feel happy with it.
mostly my fiance.he and my family supported me all the way.
had my stitches removed and first post op visit with my PS.
They're all nice to me Dr.Edwin Magallona,Dr.Gie Tacderas and the other one i kinda forgot his name and his assistant Miss Leila and Miss Love.

Hi to all sexy ladies here!!!! I am not 5 months...

Hi to all sexy ladies here!!!!
I am not 5 months post op and I feel great.
these new babies boost my confidence cuz i am able to wear whatever clothes i want mostly cute tops/tubes/dresses with lowcuts.
My fiance who is soon to be my husband is extremely happy and he loves it.He thinks im alot sexier lol at the same time made him alittle bit afraid some men might chase me lol.Cuz when we were together he noticed that men were turning there head all the time looking at my ommpppssss:)
Im glad I had it done.

I wanted to have my breast done as well for the past two years now, but I'm a bit scared about it for the future disadvantage. How safe it is, until for how many years is gonna be okay? All sorts of scary thought just pop up in my mind. But I really really do wanna look good of my poor body image. Can any one give an advice please. Thank you so much to all, You all sounds so inspiring to have it done mine,

Hello Mamaroma, I am scheduled to get surgery by Dr. Magallona in a few months. May I ask why you got a transaxilliary incision instead of under the fold? I am still researching the incision types. Did Dr. Magallona provide you with a post operative bra? Or did you need to buy it by yourself? And if you bought it yourself, where did you buy it? Sorry for all the questions. I'm trying to gather as much information as I can and I will create a review like you so that other people can benefit from my experience too. Thank you!

hello.. just read your experience and im very happy that things are well and that ur op went well.. Im thinking of going back home to the philippines next yr to get it done but im not very sure yet.. I wonder, after your op how long was it till you were able to fly?? Im planning on going for 5 wks.. im scared to think that it might do some harm when i fly back here in Europe.. 14 hrs flight to be exact! Also, i wanna ask what cup did u go for?? any chance you can give me Dr. Magallona contacts?? Much appreciated..
