I was always frustrated about how my upper body...
I was always frustrated about how my upper body looked and always wanted bigger chest. I met with 4 different plastic surgeons who are well known in the area for their work before I decided to go with Dr. Reid.
I chose Dr. Reid because of his knowledge and how much he pays attention to me. I felt connected and comfortable with him and I was 100% positive that he understood my needs and wants.
I've never had any sort of surgery or surgical procedure so my anxiety level was pretty high on my surgery day. Dr. Reid came to talk to me to go over our plan again and made sure we both were going for the same goal. He also made sure to make me feel at ease and for some reason I felt so relaxed walking to my operating room. 430cc on my left breast and 480cc on my right breast (originally smaller than left breast) were used.
It has been 3 days since my surgery and I feel GREAT! No pain, no nausea, I showered myself (yes, washed my hair and conditioned it too) twice since the surgery and I can't be happier about the result!
His staff members go above and beyond to meet each patient/client's needs and wants all the time and I can't find any reason why anyone would not choose Dr. Reid and Restora.
I must say, my recovery has been so easy and breezy. I stayed on a schedule with my pain meds for the first 2 days and I didn't need the prescribed pain med on my day 4 postop.
Mild constipation (which was expected with anesthesia and narcotics) but that went away by the 3rd day.
I had NO pain during my recovery but soreness which I didn't mind. If you lift or do yoga, muscle soreness is the story of your life anyway.
I think getting Exparel injection and staying on top of my meds for the initial recovery phase helped me a lot.
I was back to school on postop day 10 and back to work (I'm a nurse) on postop day 14.
I cannot be happier with the result and my experience with Restora so far! :)

All is well and I have been back to my normal routine including heavy weight training. There are minor discomfort from nerve regeneration from time to time, but I have no complaints other than that. Dr. Reid and his staff are always professional and attentive to details to make each of my office visit enjoyable. I'm more than happy with my results and I highly recommend Restora Austin and Dr. Reid!
