First Breast Augmentation June 29 - Salt Lake City, UT

I am going in for my first augmentation at the end...

I am going in for my first augmentation at the end of June! I have decided to go with Dr. Bennett located in Murray, UT. I had 5 consultations and chose him because he seemed to have the most confidence in his skills without being gimicky. He also has 40 years experience in plastic surgery! I was worried about needing a lift as well because the doctors on here told me from my pictures it looked like I needed a lift. 4 out of the 5 doctors I saw in person said no lift, so I am going with augmentation only and will do a lift as a second procedure if I decide I want one. I'm going with 400cc saline unders and I'm currently a B cup hoping to be a D cup. I'm getting very excited but very nervous a about surgery and post-op pain! What is the worst part?

Good luck on your new boobies !

How funny that we're having our surgery on the same day! I'm not sure of the time yet, they said they would give me a time at my pre op. I am getting so exited I don't know how I'm going to make it thru the next few weeks!

Ok...I'm starting to freak out!!! My surgery is exactly 3 weeks away and I am sooooo excited but nervous at the same time. I am starting to rethink my 400cc decision! I am currently a deflated 34-36B and I am hoping to be a D. I am much more worried about being too big rather than being too small, and suddenly I have this fear that I am going to come out of surgery with HUGE boobies! I don't want to have to buy XL shirts just to fit over my chest! I am going to try sizes on again at my pre op, but that isn't for over 2 weeks!
I only work on the weekend I'm a waitress .I took off one weekend so I had 10 days off . It was really hard when I went in for my first day back . Some stuff I still can't do at work my husband helps me with the clean up thank goodness has not had any over time at work . I hope when I see my dr In a little over 2 wks . I will be 6 wks .Today was really good I had no pain . I'm feeling really good I was 4 wks yesterday .

Tomorrow is the big day!!! I am so nervous but...

Tomorrow is the big day!!! I am so nervous but sooooooooooo excited!! I have been so nervous about 400cc being too big so I tried sizes one more time at my pre op on Tuesday. I decided to stick with the 400, the other sizes were just not quite what I want. I just know I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight because I'm so excited...
Wish me luck, ladies!
I hope your doing well! I've been pretty good all day. I got home around 11 AM. Not bad since my PS is over an hour away and my surgery was at 7:30 AM. Tonight I went 20 minutes past the 4 hour mark to take the pain meds and I'm feeling it. I have some bruising between my breast towards the bottom and lots of swelling. If I press on my chest you can hear it squish. I can also hear it gurgle or squish in my boob if I reach or do something that engages my peck muscles. Yuck! I hope that goes away soon. I'm also drinking a ton of water, I am SOOO thirsty. I'm peeing alot too. Luckily I have no trouble going to the bathroom by myself. I pray you are doing great and are not in pain. Keep up with your meds! Take Care and please keep me posted when you feel up to it.

Here I am with a new set of boobies!!!! I was...

Here I am with a new set of boobies!!!! I was TOTALLY out of it yesterday and was in and out of consciousness. The pain isn't too bad today, mostly just sore and I can even lift my arms! I can't even express how pleased I am with my results. Dr. Bennett and all his nurses were so sweet and caring. If you look the question I asked the doctors on here about a lift or du glandular placement, you can see a before picture of me. I was pretty close to borderline needing a lift but I really didn't want any lift scars and all the doctors I saw for consultations said I may he happy with augmentation only. Right they were!!! I expectedto get results that were improved from my original breasts but not perfect. My new breasts are EXACTLY what I wanted! I never though I had a chance of them turning out this well. I am so happy and excited about them. I think they will only look better and better as the implants drop. I will pos pictures when I can - this site doesn't let me do mobile picture downloads and I don't have a computer, so next time I'm at one I'll post. Or send me your email if you like and I'll email you a picture. Thanks for all of the support! I couldn't be happier! Oh and to top it off, augmentations were on special so I got them for $3400 instead of $3700 plus -$100 for paying cash. $3300? That is a steal!
Thanks! You are such a sweetie for checking up on me :)

I am on day 3 of my post augmentation recovery....

I am on day 3 of my post augmentation recovery. Today is my worst day so far :(. I can't go to the bathroom and I feel like a dope because I'm so messed up on the percoset. My chest feels so tight! I hope tomorrow is better!
How have your results been so far?

Yep I think it still is! The number to Dr. Bennett's office is 801.266.4212. Get in there soon before the special is off! Btw there is a 100$ cash discount.

Dr. Bennett so far has been polite, knowledgeable, down to earth, and honest. His staff is the same--- polite but at the same time down to business which I REALLY appreciate. Two days after my consultation I received a nice card in the mail thanking me for taking the time to visit his office. I thought that was a nice touch. His before and after portfolio is amazing. I'm interested in a natural look rather than an augmented look, and that is just how his work turns out.
