I saw my surgeon for implants because of an asymmetry in my breasts, they were almost a size apart and after breast feeding they had lost their perk. I wavered on what size to go but chose 350 for the larger breast and 375 on the smaller side. I also had a mastopexy or lift on the larger breast, incision was through the nipples with high profile silicone implants.
I noticed right after the surgery that my formerly larger breast was still projecting further out and felt fuller after surgery. This concerned me quite a bit and over the next several weeks it continued to look larger than the other breast. I was actually worried the surgeon had somehow confused which side to place the larger implant! He assured me that in time the swelling would go down but that a more invasive procedure had occurred on the side with the lift and that there was more natural tissue on that side to be swollen.
I was still dubious but now at a month after surgery things do seem to be evening out. I'm amazed at how accurate he was in his technique- I mean he moved on of my nipples around and its perfectly matched with the other one now. I'm sorry I ever doubted him! He did an amazing job, my breasts look better and better every day! I'm so happy with the surgery, finally no more insecurities about asymmetry and I look mean in a bikini! :)
My Doctor: John S. Lee, MD
He has many accreditations and surgeries under his belt. His technique is very precise and thorough for a fast recovery and beautiful result. He was worth every penny, and was very patient with me when I expressed concerns. His staff is also very polite and professional. Also, he doesn't charge for consultations which was nice considering that most want $50 or $100. I think it shows confidence in his work that this surgeon doesn't need to charge every person he sees to convince them he's worth their investment. I would see him in the future for other procedures
