I knew it would be best to wait it out as I was younger and already a full C cup and really loved my body. Thank goodness I did not rush in.
Much has changed since I was first considering breast augmentation.
I am now 35 years of age and ready to enhance and revitalize what once was.
I have had a few consultations with some wonderful doctors in the Boston area but I knew I wanted much more than what was being presented to me.
I felt many doctors are comfortable or too comfortable with the conventional way of doing things and well, I wanted someone with a slightly different approach. A surgeon who was able to step outside of the box.
I wanted something that felt custom, more tailored to my needs and an outcome unlike the last patients.
I was also dead set on avoiding anyone who was willing to do BA that clearly looked like a BA.
After much research on this site and other forums and countless hours of general searches I found the right doctor for me.
I finally called The Maercks Institute in Miami.
I had been reading a lot about Dr Rian A. Maercks and already had a pretty clear idea that he would be the one.
I finally said to myself, just call and get a dialogue started and perhaps arrange for a consultation.
Immediately upon calling I was talking to perhaps one of the friendliest women I have ever encountered.
We scheduled an appointment for a consultation over the phone seeing that I am in Boston and the practice is in Miami.
I forwarded multiple pictures of my chest and was in contact wit Dr. M later that week.
After a very in depth conversation I was happy moving forward with him.
It was only three weeks from my first call to my surgical procedure.
Blood work, mammogram, flight, hotel and transport all set and my closest girlfriend flew down with me to take care of me.
Very important to have someone that can assist you with EVERYTHING.
His staff was so helpful and ready to answer any email or any call.
They were always prompt and happy to assist me in any way.
My surgery was yesterday morning.
I am feeling pretty good considering what I just experienced.
I am up and about but I listen to my body and get off my feet as soon as I feel I am getting too tired or too sore.
Dr Rian ended up going with 550cc implants.
We were originally looking around the 440cc to 500cc range but the 550 was actually a better fit for me.
I am going to attach a few photos of before surgery and day one after surgery.
I will continue to attach photos as my swelling comes down and just over periods of time to help other see the final result.
All in all I a very happy with this experience.
At this time I am happy to tell people they should absolutely consider Dr Maercks.
Well worth the trip to Florida.
He truly is humble, gracious and very easy to talk to.
I was cracking jokes up until the moment the anethesiologist put me under.
Very impressed by everyone at this practice.
My highest praise for the level of care I received and the professionalism of the entire staff.
If anyone would like more info , please feel free to reach out to me.
Best wishes to anyone moving forward with surgery.
My best advise, take your time and do your due diligence.
Don't bargain shop for something as important as this.
Your body is your temple and it truly is priceless.
