Breast Augmentation W/Benelli Lift - Oxnard, CA

I had a saggy set of deflated B cup breasts after breast feeding 2 children and more so from becoming engorged to a triple D cup during the end of the nursing process. I had wanted breast implants for over 10 years, and now was in a position to get them. A friend had recommended Dr.Gorodisky, and I couldn't be happier with him or his staff.

Post op day 6

Feeling amazing since I hit post op day 5! Still experiencing some numbness which is totally normal.
FYI- I stayed with a girlfriend the day of surgery and the following day/night. I went home on my own day 2 post op and so forth. No outside help other than someone walking my dog for 2 days. I was able to use the restroom on my own immediately following surgery, as well as wash my face, brush my teeth etc. I sat and had dinner with my friend the night of and was pretty self sufficient. I do have a high pain tolerance and am pretty stubborn. Haha the only thing that was a pain was getting out of bed you can't lean back and put weight on your hands to push yourself around. So get in bed right the first time! lol stay on top of your meds for the first 3 days! I stopped pain meds post op day 3. It caused me to get really constipated. Stock up on smooth move tea and grab some milk of magnesia! You will need it! ;)

The day of surgery, my last 2 pics of my old boobs!

Dr.Gorodisky is amazing! He's so kind, has a great sense of humor, answers all of your crazy questions and really puts you at ease. His staff is amazing as well! I fell in love with all of them on day 1, and knew there was no other surgeon that I needed to visit with after my consultation at West Coast Plastic Surgery.

stayed only 2 nights with a friend. post op day 2 I went home on my home, recovery was a breeze and I stopped pain meds on day 3. (they will constipate you) I was a FT student at the time and went to class post op day 5- started working 2 jobs, 2 weeks post op. Recovery for me was a breeze. Showering solo was difficult lol you can't get the strips wet, but if you do don't worry just blow dry your boobs! lol I had no issues with bruising, or lifting my arms as others have mentioned before me.
