The only reason I decided to have BA was because before I had children I had really nice firm perky 32 B breasts, but afte having 3 Children they were deflated. I am 100% happy with the procedure the only con is the reovery process not because its so painful because for me it wasn't, but more so because you will be extremely anxious for them to start feeling like your own (with no soreness)and to see the finished product.
One advice I will give is do your own research no matter how much you trust your PS don't rely on them to make all the decisions for you. for example with the sizing I originally picked somewhere close to 400cc it looked great in the sports bra they gave me to try it on with but as my surgery date approached i began doing more research and found out the #1 thing with BA that women are unhappy with is the size they chose and that happens because people dont realize it looks a lot smaller once inside your body. That is something my PS did not tell me after finding that out I called and went up to 500CC which is perfect for me! Any smaller and I would have been really unhappy.
My PS is amazing and really experienced I just wish I would have had more contact with him but I definitely trusted hi to do the procedue correctl. My incision site is really neat which was a big deal for me because i'm african american and i usually scar horribly. my breast looked great straight off the table not swollen and deformed like most. By week two my breast had started softening up. Amazing Amazing doctor I can't stress tat enough! I will be going to him for my tummy tuck!
The staff is super friendly! I was sooo nervous...

He has wonderful credentials. He gave me results straight off the table that I have never seen from all the pics I looked at and you tube videos I watched. I braced myself to see something horrific but nope! no swelling no bruising no bleeding just clean moisturized breast!
