Consultation: I never felt rushed. Dr. Alderman and nurse Bailey answered all my questions. Never did they make me feel as if any of my question were silly. Remember, I am a hypochondriac., so I am pretty sure I asked some really "out there" questions. A lot of education and information was provided to put my anxiety to ease. This dynamic duo created an atmosphere that was very calm and comforting that I knew I was in great hands. That day, I decided to go ahead and schedule for the breast augmentation with silicone implants.
Surgery: Day of surgery I was a nervous wreck. The nursing staff was absolutely amazing. Calming, nurturing, competent, safe, are just some of the characteristics that these staff members possessed. Dr. Alderman came in and she went over the surgery with me. The anesthesiologist came in.... from there on, all I can remember is getting wheeled out to the car.
Post surgery: that very night, I was called a couple of times, just so they could check up on me. The recovery process was not as bad as I imagined. As long as you follow the directions provided with the follow up visits, it is smooth sailing. Being a hypochondriac, I probably called once a week with some concern. The nurses called back in a timely fashion and helped answer all questions. Once again, the nursing staff is magnificent.
FYI: The first month, one can get a little discouraged after surgery, because it is not a pretty sight. But patience is a virtue dear grasshopper... I am six months post surgery, and I absolutely love my look. I am now a 34D, I love how clothes look on me, and those who know I got the procedure, compliment how natural they look.
