I decided to go with silicone implants because the texture was softer than saline. I chose to have my incision under the areola because doctors told me it heals the fastest. However, I've noticed that my nipples/areola are very tender and sensitive. I am hoping that once fully healed, the sensation will resume back to normal. I underestimated the healing time as far as resting the first week. I scheduled my surgery 2 weeks before my summer school final, which wasn't a good idea. Everyone heals differently, but I would advise to not schedule surgery within a 3 week span of important obligations. Another downside of the procedure is the anesthesia causes pretty bad nauseousness, but my doctor prescribed me anti-nausea medication which helped.
All in all the pain and money spent was totally worth it.
