I thought I'd love them.. - Mississauga, ON

So two months ago I decided to get breast...

So two months ago I decided to get breast augmentation with Dr. Lista. I was so undecided on the size I had three fittings!! I had quite a range from 375ccs 400ccs 450ccs and 475ccs.

I loved the 375s first but then tried the 400s and felt perfect. He said they will be smaller under the muscle so go with 450. The change from 375 ccs to 450 seemed like a big leap. But I though what the hell take it.

What I wanted was to look great naked and yes big! ;) (but only when I WANTED them to look this way) I wanted to be able to put on a shirt and hide them or dress them down if need be. So this is why he thought this was a good size.

I just had my surgery today and when I lift up my shirt they look huge and worry me. But I just can't really know until some time has passed. Then when I put my pajama shirt on they look perfectly dressed down.


PROS:
Dr lista was very patient as I came to see him three times to ask his opinion on size.

My patient coordinater Tara was very sweet with all the calls I received pre surgery. She made sure I had done everything I could to make the experience better.

The nurse who took care of my post surgery Francine is one of the most hardworking good people I have ever met. She was hilarious and paid attention to every little thing I needed.

The staff in general are all there to give the best possible service. They try hard and it is visible. They do their job and they love their jobs. It's a great team.

CONS :
This is pretty miniscule but:
The only thing I advise is that they always make you show up an hour early. I was there at 10:15am and didn't get in until 11:20. Meaning I sat in the waiting area for a long time. I could have come at 11 and had less anxiety waiting and waiting.

8 Months post-op

I have kept myself from writing an update because I have tried to give myself time to settle and heal so that I may give an informed and accurate update. After going 450cc's in January 2013 not only do I regret going so damn big but now my implants have "bottomed out". Although my nipples were rather high from the get go they were not so that they were pointing to the sky.

I have buyer's remorse and miss my small natural perky breasts. I finally went in to see Dr. Lista about this problem he seemed upset this happened to me and offered to fix it for free. Which I was not expecting. I am seriously contemplating going to 350-375 cc now. I feel very top heavy.

The reason I went so big was that every girl whom I have ever spoken to wished she'd gone bigger. I also read this same thing in many reviews so thought that I would not make the same mistake. I realize now my personality is much too big to have matching breasts the same size. I am a small breasted girl on the inside and sort of wish my exterior matched my interior.

My next update will be when I decide whether or not I will go smaller or just simply let Dr.Lista perform a capsulorrhaphy and just deal with what I've gotten myself into.

I am embarrassed to even share these photos but must do it for anyone in my position who is weary about what size to go. If you find yourself to be a "guy's girl" or a "tom boy" or a "the jester of the group" do not get this size breast implants. Another good reason to not go too big is because of this issue where the implant it just too heavy and the skin is just too thin and can't support it. You end up with this ^^

His bedside manner is amazing. He is funny and he cares. He's cares. That is so important to me. When I saw him for the third time for my third fitting I said "look I need you to care about me and my boobs" (blunt I know) he replied "I care about every thing I do and all of my patients." I believed him and I was not disappointed. It is my first day that is so we will see. But if you want a good doctor I would recommend him. A lot of doctors can do your BA but how many will care and not treat you like a number? For now I will have my tubes removed tomorrow and update soon.
