I was nervous and excited as I began to research getting breast implants. I am tall, have little body fat, and had very small breasts...especially after nursing. While I didn't feel I needed surgery to feel attractive or feminine, my husband and I loved the "nursing" breasts. After nursing, I had tried a variety of supplements and "natural" alternatives to breast enlargement to no avail. My husband and I carefully considered and researched the risks and benefits of surgery. I highly recommend doing careful research, especially when it comes to an experienced surgeon...it can make all the difference. I feel truly blessed to have found Dr. Pousti.
Going into surgery, I felt confident that he totally knew what he was doing and would do the best job. Now four months after surgery, I can attest to his expertise firsthand. My husband and I are thrilled with the results...much better than even nursing breasts! I wanted a very natural look that fit my body type. Striving for a modest size, I was initially thinking a "C" cup would be a good fit for me, but after discussing it with Dr. Pousti and hearing his recommendations for my build, I decided to go a bit larger and am so glad I did! They are the perfect size! I love having larger breasts...especially in bathing suits and lingerie! Every day my husband comments on how great I look!
I highly recommend to those considering surgery to allow two weeks of recovery before resuming normal activities. For those with young children, I recommend asking a sister, mom, or close friend for help during those two weeks as you cannot drive and must keep your elbows close to your sides. Having my sister's help during this time made a world of difference in my recovery! For those that are concerned about exercise, I was able to ride the stationary bike at the gym after about a week and a half. I began running after two months. After about two and a half months I resumed lifting light arm weights.
One other tidbit of info...recovery involves wearing a hideous bra with a wide velcro strap across the front of your chest for several weeks. Do a bit of shopping ahead of time and find shirts with a ruffle or pockets in front and a higher neckline that will cover up the strap! What a great excuse to do some shopping! I love the results of having breast implants! I think this decision should be weighed very carefully by anyone considering it. I know from my personal experience, having Dr. Pousti as my surgeon and the help of his amazing staff, made all the difference in my experience.
