First, let me attempt to qualify my review with the following; I am the friend many go to for recommendations on everything from carpenters, to vacuums’ and pediatricians. I research everything, read all the reviews. My Breast augmentation was no different. I became as educated as possible on the procedure (s) available. In my opinion, the most important choice in this process is your surgeon. This decision guides all others (size, profile, type, placement, recovery procedure, etc.).
I started this process considering a fat transfer procedure (Dr. Lowney also offers this). I did the “rice method” and brought “desired look,” pictures to my surgeon. I ended up with mentor silicon implants, 425cc, smooth, round, high profile, sub muscular/ inframammary placement. I was a 32A/small B cup pre op and I am a 32DD post surgery. I had my surgery 4 weeks ago (end of Sept. 2012). While “they” still have “settling” to do, they already look fabulous! I am thrilled with my results! I did all the recommended pre and post op, vitamins, exercises and preparation. By day 4 post op I felt great. A week later I returned to all my regular activities. One more general question I had that I never saw answered in reviews – “did anyone notice your breast change?” So who can say for sure, but neither my friends, nor my children have made a single comment. I have plenty of friends who would say something and my kids see me in a bra (and they say everything that pops into their head). I wore padded bras over the years of nursing as my breasts deflated and I think this helped my change be less noticeable to others. My husband thought this was a completely “unnecessary” procedure and was quite concerned about my choice. Now, he loves my results! Most importantly, I love my results – so glad I did this! I know it is long, but I hope this review is helpful. I tried to include the most relevant information.
