43 Years Old 3 Kids - full breast lift with implants-Louisville, KY

This review is way over due. As I have used this...

This review is way over due. As I have used this site and the journeys others have taken to start my own I want to share my story. I have never had big breast usually a B cup except nursing I got to a DDD with first kid and C with other two. So I was not feeling very sexy with these flaws of skin called breasts on my chest. Like others on here I had issues with clothes and bras. I was tired of wearing these massively padded bras that when you take them off you look down and get bummed. The dresses out there to be worn without a bra forget it my boobs were not big but man did they sag. So I started researching. Went to first consultation with Dr. Mizaguchi in Louisville. He was just fantastic. I was bummed and shocked that I needed the full anchor lift and I like many others expressed that I did not want all the scars from a full lift. Doctor Mizaguchi was very honest . He said I would not be happy and he would not be happy with the results without full lift. I told him the look I was after was natural with upper pole fullness and bra size C or D cup I just want to be proportional.I am 5'9 tall and weight 150. Dr suggested Natrelle allergan style 15 moderate plus silicone 533cc in left breast and 492Cc in right ( slightly bigger breast.) I was shocked . I asked the Doctor the 533cc is a big implant and would doing the lift and implants at same time be an issue. He said for most people no it can be done at same time and that he does many of them year . So I left talked over with hubby. He of course was happy with old ones lol and did not understand. With Doctor M. At the Calobrace Surgery center the first consultation and second were free with Dr Calobrace there is a 75.00 consultation fee but that can be used if you move forward with surgery towards total cost or can be used toward spa and other products. I have heard great things about BOTH doctors there but my personal experience is with Dr M. I scheduled second consultation and surgery for 7/30/14. As I am several weeks post op I will try to post days for pics I post

July 30, 2014 Surgery day

I cant believe how fast it got here. My sister came into town for a week to help me. I am nervous and very hungry. The staff at the surgery center were awesome! !! Dr came in marked me up a bit and asked if I had any last minute questions. I did not so he left. I had to be at surgery center at 915 am. At about 1030 they wheeled me into surgery room I was given medicine and went right to sleep. Woke up around 2 in recovery looked down at my chest and was excited. I was in a large amount of pain in recovery and my blood pressure was very very high. They asked me of I had a history of high blood pressure and I said no I have always had good blood pressure. They gave me blood pressure medicine two times I believe and it did nothing to bring it down. I did already have 2 crackers and some ginger ale anda pain pill . When the nurse noted that there was still no change in blood pressure she started looking under my bandages . BINGO ! She saw my left breast was oozing blood my sister said at one point it gushed out. Nurse got Dr. Mizaguchi to come look . He looked at me and said we need to bring you back into operating room and open the left breast back up and find where the bleeding was and stop it. I was freaked out by this. They were opening me back up???? The doctor left not that I had questions still drugged up. The nurse told me that is why they dont release patients from recovery until vials are stable. I already respected Dr Mizaguchi and his team but that day the respect deepened. They were in no way rushing me to get my bed for another patient patient safety was there number one concern I am so glad it was. So here I was being wheeled to surgery for the second time. Scared but glad all this happened in recovery and I was not bleeding like that at home. Unfortunately meds were wearing off as they I am sure wanted to wait till last minute to give me the time to sleep drugs. Oh the pain was horrible but it really did not last long at all as soon as I was transferred to operating bed and Iv arm strapped in they gave me meds. I woke up in recovery for the second time around 445-500. This pain hurt but was so much more manageable. They went over post op instructions. Change dressings in 24 hours shower in 2 days . I left surgery center at about 545 a long day for sure.

Very hard sometimes . You have days you love them and days you pick apart everything . Today I see the different sizes one bigger the left. I see areola notclose to even with both sides. And I see the implants taking its sweet time dropping. I know all of this is normal in tge healing process. And I am sure my mood will change in few hours lol

I would highly recommend Dr Mizaguchi! !!! He is truly an artist in any procedure he performs!!! He is very personable, Knowledgeable , and honest. He takes a lot of pride in his work. He wants it to look just as fantastic as the patient does. He will not perform a procedure on you if he feels it is not needed . This says a lot about the Doctor and surgery center. If you are looking for a doctor that is well educated and very knowledgeable and up to date on all the technology out there you have GOT to at least have a consultation with Dr. Mizaguchi. He is well worth it to travel to I had some unexpected things happen during recovery and Dr. Mizaguchi was not going to let me be discharged until everything was stable I was truly gratefulthat he was my doctor when things went wrong. We all want a text book surgery but the reality is that things can happen out of everyone's control and having a great doctor like Mizaguchi made the experience complications and all a positive experience . If anyone has any questions about Dr Mizaguchi or surgery center please don't hesitate to ask me.
