If anyone has any questions regarding my breast...

If anyone has any questions regarding my breast augmentation with Dr. G, feel free to message me privately!
First, you must know, finding a plastic surgeon is like finding a soulmate, you have to date around to find out who's truly, "the one." You are exposing your innermost insecurities and blindly trusting this person to mold you a better version of yourself. I have invested a huge amount of my life working to be financially capable of paying for my own procedure and had declined countless nights out and shopping sprees in order to save for it. I'm typically the type to dive in head first when I want something. But I knew this procedure is life-changing and I wanted to consult with a good amount of doctors before settling with one.
For the next few months I visited 8 other different surgeons who quoted me 5000-7000 dollars for silicone breast implant augmentation. One of those consultations was with Dr. G, who has heavy experience and extensive knowledge on this procedure, as she performs 50-70 cases a year. She spent a generous amount of time clearly explaining to me everything I needed to know about the procedure. She allowed me feel the different implant types and on top of that, sent me home with a kit that consisted of different implant samples so I could place them in my bra to see what size I'd prefer.
She put my anxieties at ease and effectively helped me finally decide to get silicone implants, under the muscle and through the bottom of my breast. My boyfriend and I left her office knowing that she was, "the one." However, her price was a bit steeper than I anticipated, so I couldn't get the augmentation as soon as I wanted. (She does accept credit card, but I personally feel better paying in full. I'm sure she'd appreciate that as well.)
It's been almost half a year since my first consultation and I'm scheduled for my pre-op tomorrow. I'm typically a highly anxious person to begin with, but knowing that I will be taken care of by such masterful artist such as Dr. G, I hold nothing but pure excitement about my procedure. I am extremely privileged to have the opportunity to be her patient and I will update next month with great news of how my procedure goes.
(TWO MONTHS LATER) It's been a couple weeks since I had my breast augmentation and I am just elated. At first I was apprehensive about getting an incision under the breast since it's scarring is more noticeable than around the areola. But it's only been 2 weeks since my augmentation and my scarring is practically invisible when I face the mirror topless, all because Dr. G was able to make a small incision at the exact location under my beasts where it casts a thin shadow. Of course the scar is somewhat noticeable when lift up my breasts, but it has really only been 2 weeks and this is just a minor trade-off I was willing to take in order to get the wonderful results I've received from Dr. G.
I am in love with my new set of twins. They are absolutely perfect. I feel so much more comfortable, confident and beautiful and it all now beams through my body language. I am just go glad proceeded with the breast augmentation, now I don't have deal with skin irritations from stuffing my bra. This procedure took a load off my chest, ironic eh? haha! Thank you so much Dr. G. I am truly honored to be one of your patients!
