Eventually, about 3 years later, I started hearing girls saying how happy they are with their implants and how much better they feel with them. Then I heard them bragging about how fantastic their doctors were, and how easy the process was, so it became a serious consideration. A few months later, I decided on a doctor that a couple of ladies had spoken highly of, Dr. Ennis, in Destin Florida. I live near New Orleans, so it was a nearly 5 hour drive every time I went for an appointment. And then another 5 hours back home. But the traveling is worth it for the right doctor.
The doc and his team of nurses and assistants are fantastic. Everything went smoothly, and now I've only had my implants for 2 weeks, and I already love them even though they still have a long way to go before they are "settled in", per say. They already look good, but it takes at least a month before they start looking more natural, since the skin and muscles have to have time to stretch and adjust.
The first couple days are pretty rough, but by day 4 or 5, I was doing some not-to-strenuous activities, like go to the mall or grocery store. after the first week, most of the pain is subsided, but of course not all of it. Overall, I would recommend anyone who is even thinking about getting breast implants to do your research, find a great doctor that you trust (Dr. Ennis is FANTASTIC if you are willing to travel) and do a consultation. That should help you make a decision. I decided to book my surgery only a week or so after my consultation. I'm glad I did.
