Breast Augmentation with Dr. Ortega in Miami, FL 8 Oct 13

My breast augmentation surgery is scheduled for 16...

My breast augmentation surgery is scheduled for 16 Aug 13 in Miami. I live in Delaware so I will be flying down with one of my relatives. I am very nervous and excited at the same but I am concerned that my surgery may be delayed as I have had a low white blood count for the last year. It is not extremely low but it is outside of the normal range. Can I have the surgery done with low white blood count?

I have my appointment with Dr. Ortega on 8 Oct 2013 and while I am excited I am extremely nervous. After breastfeeding two kids I have lost almost all the volume in my boobs so I really want to do this to boost my confidence level. I still have not scheduled a consultation with him as yet so I have lots of questions to be answered before I head down. Jessica and Dena have been very helpful with the process so far. I am traveling from DE to FL and I still am not sure if my sister will be able to come with me so I am freaking out a little bit. I do not want to go by myself so I am keeping my fingers crossed that her boss will let her go. Is anyone going to Dr. Ortega around that time?

One day post op...

I had my surgery yesterday with Dr. Ortega and I so thankful everything went well. I am still in a lot of pain but out I'd manageable with the pain pills. Can't wait to see them!

Day 2...

I am still in a lot of pain but the percocet havr been helping. I am a bit concerned about my twins as one is bigger than the other. The left one is huge...hopefully it's just swelling. My leg is also hurting which concerns me.

Having buyer's remorse...

Today marks my 12th day post op and I am really concerned about a few things. 1, I have a bruise under my left breast that was not there before. I am hoping its just a bruise that was deep under the skin and is just surfacing. 2, I noticed my right left breast is bigger and harder than my right breast. My right breast is noticeably smaller and much softer than my left. My right breast feels empty so I am worried that they are not the same size. Another problem I am having is, I have this severe pain at the top of my right breast. It hurts every time I breathe in. It is so bad that I am back on Percocet. I contacted my ps office a couple days ago but I haven't received a response. I am hoping I don't have too go back for a revision. Has anyone experienced any of the above?

Its been over two months since I had my procedure done and I have yet to speak to Dr. Ortega via telephone or email. Very disappointed as I had have had none of my questions answered. Google has become my primary source for information. I feel like just a number. The receptionist has said they its my since I missed a couple phone calls. I called back right and my calls were never answered. Both ladies I was working with since quit. They don't look as I envisioned them but much better than they were before. My left breast is rounder than my right and my right breast is closer to the center than the left. I must say that I my self esteem has boosted since having my implants done. Just wish I had more time with him and that follow up care was provided.
