A little info on me....My name is Mischelle and I am 35 yrs old and I am from Atlanta, Ga. I am 5"4, 135 pounds (athletic build - i look like i weigh alot less - noone ever believes me when i tell them what i weigh...... - ummm hello? why would i say i weigh more than i do???- very few women would do that lol!!) Anyway i have two boys - a 19 yr old and a 7 yr old. I am done having children. I have chosen dr. abboushi at Pancea Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Ga for several reasons. I have always wanted to do this since my teenage years. I have always hated my real breasts and have always been very shy/self conscientous or whatever you wanna call it - i am sure you ladies know what i mean. I hate wearing bathing suits and undressing in front of anyone - even my boyfriend of 22 years. I have talked about doing it over the years and have scheduled consultations, gotten dvds from one office but I never followed though with it because I have always been a hard worker and just felt that I never had the time (well I had time but didn't want to use it for that and the job That i had I couldn't be off very long at a time and another thing I just felt selfish for the time and money i would have spent - almost like i was taking away from my family) My boyfriend has never wanted me to do it he says he likes mine the way they are and he has made other remarks that I wont post here lol! Well I have been out of work for six months (i chose to leave so no health issues or lay offs/firings) I am currently seeking employment but have no actual committments so I started thinking this is probably the only time in my life that I will have ever have free reign like this and not be tied down with a job and i can basically do what i want right now. I have care credit to finance the surgery with plenty of credit to do the procedure soooo I made my mind up that i was gonna do it!!
I called Pancea Plastic Surgery to set up the consult - they were able to get me in in a couple days. I went for my consult on Dec 23, 2015 As I said I chose Dr. Abboushi (i was 99% sure i was gonna use him because my cousin used him after breast cancer and she is still undergoing treatments and she just raved about him- she said he was the greatest thing ever) As soon as I met him and the other staff I felt very welcomed immediately and knew this would be he place I would schedule my surgery with. I normally have white coat syndrome and get extremely nervous at any dr or dentist lol - its pretty ridiculous!! I even break out in hives so for me to actually be comfortable and hive-free at a drs office is huge - this has happened very, very few times. But I felt at ease immediately even when he was measuring me and poking and pinching my breasts lol. So I finished up my discussion with him about what i was hoping to achieve. I then met with the patient coordinator to try on sizers. She was very helpful and told me she was similar stats as me and told me what she went with and where she ended up once they dropped and settled in. We decided that Between 400 & 450 ccs looked good on me annd should put me where i want to be. I then went in and spoke with the payment dept. i told them that i already have care credit and she said that was great. i had some trouble in the beginning but we ended up getting it all squared away. The lady that helped me went above and beyond. She asked me if i wanted to schedule and I told her that I would go home and think about dates, etc. and I would call her back.
I called her back that afternoon and was very confident that I was ready to do this - I gave her my payment info over the phone because they would be off the next two days for Christmas. She said ahe would call me the following week with a date for aurgery - i told her i could do any day or any time that i was just ready to do it - i had my mind made up.
I hadnt heard from the surgery coordinator by Tuesday afternoon so I called the office and she had left for the day so i left a message. she called me the next day to let me know that she hadnt forgotten about me but that she was trying to get me in to have the surgery the first week of January but the hospital just couldnt accomodate it. She told me the first day they have available is Friday January 15, 2016 so I told her I would take it!! I wont know what time I have to be there until sometime Thirsday. I am hoping for the earliest as possible so I can get it over with and not have to go all day with no food or drink.... As of now I am scheduled for 400cc Allegran silicone implants. I have read alot about ladies thinking they didnt go big enough and that you lose 50 cc during surgery? I have read that several places. I am going to try to go to the dr office and talk to the dr about the last minute questions because i want to make sure I make the right choices!!
With that being said, I have three more sleeps and I will have my dream boobs. The anxiety has set in - I have not been able to sleep the last two nights hardly at all!! I am gonna see if the dr will give me a valium for the day of the surgery because i will probably be sick from worrying! I am silly i know but i cant help it - you would never know on the outside that i was even nervous other than the hives on my nexk but on tbe i side i am freaking out! I went to have my wisdom teeth out almost 8 years ago and I had myself so freaked iut that my bloodpressure was through the roof - they almost didn't do the procedure because it was so high - i had to convince them that it was high from my nerves. The two things that terrify me are being put to sleep and them putting the tube kn my throat and then i am scared once i wake up that i will be in excrutiating pain or be aick from the anesthesia. i am sure veryone has similar fears and i am not the only one but man my heart and mind are both racing 100 mph as i type this....
Wish me luck ladies!!!
