I have wanted a breast augmentation as far back as I could remember. Once a co-worker of mine took the plunge to get a breast augmentation, I knew this dream of mine was not impossible and was actually quite common. I did endless amounts of research on every plastic surgeon from Massachusetts to Miami. I had finally narrowed down my choices to five surgeons. I went to all five consultations and interrogated each doctor about where the surgery was performed, what the cost was, how many breast augmentations they performed annually, the length of surgery, the prophylactic antibiotics used during surgery, whether or not they offered Care Credit, the length of their incision/scar, whether or not they used a funnel to place the implant, what they believed attributed to capsular contracture, and how they did their best to prevent it. I also read each surgeon’s online reviews and testimonials.
The reason I chose Dr. Sterling as my surgeon was based on many factors. First and foremost, I trusted him because of how sincere and honest he was. I had never had surgery before and he made me feel comfortable, trusting him and the staff members at The Elliot Hospital. I even slept soundly the night before surgery because of how confident I was in his ability to do the best job possible. I was impressed when I received my surgery quote that there was a financial break down of the surgeon fee, anesthesia fee, cost of the implants and facility fee so I knew what my money was being allocated to. He also required a CBC (complete blood count) and medical clearance to make sure I was healthy before performing surgery which speaks to his integrity to do the right thing. As a registered nurse, I was impressed by his due diligence when he had me prep my body three days preoperatively with Betadine or Hibiclens in the shower in order to decrease any risk of infection. His staff was equally as wonderful and helped me pick the appropriate implant size true to how it actually looks post operatively. They also talked to me about all of my options such as silicone as opposed to saline, and submuscular (under the muscle) as opposed to submammary (over the muscle), and the inframmary incision mark.
I the procedure done on Thursday and I had friends over for take-out the same night. I went for my post op appointment on Friday, went for a drive to the beach with friends on Saturday, and was able to drive on my own and go to a cookout on Sunday. I was back at work by Tuesday with zero pain from my breast augmentation. It was such a minimally invasive surgery with practically no down time. I have heard of several recovery horror stories from friends who needed to be bandaged for a week and wear a sports bra 24/7 for 6 weeks. Dr. Sterling does not sever through the entire muscle and requires no bandages or bra use. I was able to wear regular clothing the day of surgery and conceal the fact that I got surgery to my fellow co-workers once I resumed work, since I had no bandages.
I finally feel proportionate and feminine for the first time in my life. I am thrilled with the shape, size, texture, and look of my submuscular silicone gel implants. Looking back, my only regret is that I wish I would have done this surgery sooner.

One other piece of advice- Go Bigger! You will fall in love with the swelling post operatively and wish you went bigger.
I did 350cc silicone moderate plus implants, as much as I love my breasts I would go bigger in a heart beat since I love the way my body looks in a padded push up bra.
