The day of surgery was a breeze! I was "in and out" and everyone on staff was so caring and helpful. I had two surgical procedures done at once, which I was a little nervous about at first, but it went very well. I had the full face CO2 laser resurfacing and a breast lift and augmentation. The CO2 laser was probably the most uncomfortable. I was quite scary for a couple of weeks, but was EXPECTING that - both because I have had it done before and Dr. Tholen informed me that was going to happen.
I have had acne my entire life which resulted in scarring. I have had the CO2 laser resurfacing done elsewhere, but feel much better about the second time around.
I had asymetrical breasts and wasn't happy with the size of either of them. Dr. Tholen lifted one breast and put two different sizes of silicone implants in them. I went from a small B cup in my left breast to a small D cup. My right breast went from a full C cup to a small D cup. I am very pleased with the incisions... scarring is minimal (even on the lifted breast).
The breast lift and augmentation had minimal recovery time. I feel like a woman now... now a disfigured person. I can buy bras now without falling out of one cup and needing a tissue in the other... it is just an amazing transformation! Brilliant!
