My breasts were very small and empty. - Breast Augmentation - Houston, TX

After having three children and nursing for over 6 years, my breasts were very small and empty. I was concerned about going under the muscle because I practice yoga daily and did not want to lose pectoral strength, so Dr Ciaravino recommended 225 cc above the muscle.

40 Years Old, 3 Kids, Revision for Capsular Contracture - Houston, TX

Thanks!! I run and yoga 7 days a week and they do not interfere with that AT ALL!! I just double up on sports bras for running, but there's no bouncing feeling. READ COMMENT

You will be able to work out lower body cardio at 2 weeks, so no worries there. That was a big concern for me too but I must say the time passes quickly and I didn't lose any muscle tone nor strength at all. Enjoy the rest from your... READ COMMENT
