31 Years Old, Mom of 4 and Very Much Needed Breast Lift and Implant. - Charlotte, NC
I can't wait to finally get my surgery. My breasts...
I had my pre op appointment yesterday morning with Dr Finical at Charlotte Plastic Surgery. I can't even put into words how excited I am. I went in with a whole list of questions and a ball of nerves and came out excited, like a kid on Christmas! Nicole who is Dr Finical's nurse was as warm and caring as always (I've had 3 consults but never followed through bc I kept having kids). Natrelle is running a special right now so I'll get free botox with my boobs. Yayyy! Dr Finical walked the room, did an exam and spent a good 40 minutes talking with me, addressing and question or concerns that I had, explaing the whats and whys and he covered 99% of everything without me even having to ask. Hel has such a great bedside mabner, is so knowledgeable, does great work (he's worked on several of my friends) and I couldn't trust anyone more. We decided on a lollipop lift instead of anchor (awesome) and 560cc Natrelle high profile Inspira Silicone implants because I want to be a good d cup, like I was before having kids. I interviewed 6 or 7 Dr's in the 5 years and when I met Dr Finical and his staff, I knew this was the perfect fit. Everything is scheduled, paid for and I'll arrive at 6:30 am on 7/28. I'm ready for my pre baby boobs to be back. I'm 5'3 115-120 lbs. I know I'm in the best hands in the city and can't wait for the big day.
Surgery was postponed
Day of Surgery and I'm Loving my Decision!!
I had my surgery today at 7 am. We went with 560 cc natrelle ispira with a lollipop lift. I was relatively calm going in (so only half of a train wreck) and like always everyone was so kind and supportive. The nurses and anesthesiologists were so sweet and understanding. Dr Finical came in as warm, comforting and knowledgeable as always, marked a few things on my chest and reassured me that everything would be great. I was given iv meds in the OR and next thing you know I was in recovery. I couldn't be more pleased with Dr Finical and his team. I woke up wanting to hug everyone. I'm in zero pain but am taking my meds every 5-6 hours (hyrdos w/ tylenol.) The swelling isn't bad either. I can't wait for my post op tomorrow so i can see my new twins!!! If anyone in the Charlotte area and looking for the best of the best Dr Finical is the Dr for you, I promise you won't be disappointed!!!
Day one post op
Morning of day 2 post op
So an update on my new boobies lol this morning they feel good. I'm pretty sure they are slowly starting to settle already. The warm shower last night felt great and really relaxed me, didn't hurt at all. All numbness is gone so I'm happy to announce that I didn't lose sensation, yayyy! I'm able to get in and out of bed with no tightness at all this morning. I'll post another update this evening. I still couldn't be happier with my results.
A couple things i realized...
The bendable straws aren't necessary, holding a full glass of water causes no discomfort at all
Super hot showers will make you a little dizzy lol
Trust your surgeon, give him or her a little wiggle room. This is what they do for a living and like any artist they do top notch when given the ok to do what's best. That's why it's important to trust and research your Dr...dont bargain shop, this is your body!!!
Sleeping on my back isn't that bad but I've rolled on my side by morning each night which hasn't hurt

Dr Finical exceed all expectations. His patience, understanding, genuine care for his patients, eye and hand for perfection, knowledge, skill and bedside manner can not be beat. His whole team is outstanding, especially Nicole. They work very well together and her willingness to go above and beyond is something im very thankful for and will never forget!
