I had breast augmentation 25 yrs. ago. As soon as I received them I felt a decrease in energy that never left me. I learned to live with it. They were always heavy and uncomfortable especially when I layed on my back at night. One implant had hardened and both were suspected of leakage. The surgery was performed on 1/22/13 and was unremarkable, mostly painless, and short-lived. I was home 6 hrs. later and off the heavy pain meds after 48 hrs. Only Tylenol every 8 hrs after that. The most frustrating were the tubes that will be out in 2 days. After that I will be pretty normal. I have spoken with a woman @ Dillard's Dept. Store who has been trained in fitting in the lingerie department and she has reassured me she can help with a Modern Movement Maximum Lift # 03001009.
My doctor told me to give it 3 months before I make a decision whether I will re-implant but I suspect I will leave them as they are and just wear a push up bra, which can increase the size up to 2 cups.If I had access to the bras that are out there today I probably would have chosen that rather than breast augmentation. Overall the experience has been very pleasant and I already feel I have made the right choice. My insurance paid all but a hospital co-pay of $861.00 and about $300.00 to the surgeon. I do feel most certain I will not re-implant. The whole process is nothing to dread and I feel minimally invasive for what it is. Dr. Charles Newman is an excellent doctor.
