30 Yrs Old, No Kids, 550 Sientra Smooth Moderate Profile, 5'5, 130lbs, Athletic Built. Laguna Beach, CA

Hello! I have found this site extremely helpful...

Hello! I have found this site extremely helpful for my BA. So I decided to pay it forward and share my story.

Stats:
Height-5'5
Weight-130
Boob Size-34B
Implant-550 Seintra, moderate profile

My decision to get a BA:
I use to be much larger (160 lbs) then what I am now (130 lbs). With that being said, I lost my boobs in my weight loss journey, and every time I lose more weight, they just get smaller. This puts me in a pardox. Do I keep losing weight and be flat chested with a big booty, or do I sacrifice my abs for a fuller chest. I use to be a 34DD, now I am a deflated 34 B. I feel like I have been robbed of my womanhood.

Finding the right PS:
I went to 2 other consults before I found Dr. Daniel Mills in Laguna Beach. Dr. Mills is an active member in good standing with the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, California Society of Plastic Surgeons, American College of Surgeons, and served as the President of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons from June 2007 until June 2008. Additionally, he has 15 years of experience and 10 years of residency teaching. You can read all about his bio.
Also, his staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
It's safe to say, I am in good hands with him. I originally went in there wanting just 410ccs, but then he explained how 70% of women wished they went bigger. I was still undecided until my last preop appointment, until then I was searching sites (especially this one) to finalize my decisions. I found this one to be most helpful. Needless to say, I decided to go with the biggest size possible (550ccs) without having the "pornstar" look. He addressed my concerns with looking natural.

Dr. Mills BA Method:
Transauxillary Incision (armpit)
Submuscular Placement

Day of Surgery

My appointment was at 8:00 and an hour and a half away. Per doc's orders, I got up used the cleansing soap all over my body, as well as the night before. I didn't drink or eat anything before I headed to bed, cause I wasn't allowed to before going under. As soon as I got there, I took my anti nausea medication and they gave me Xanax. I helped with my nerves. I don't recall going under, nor do I remember much waiting to go home. My last reccall was being told was being helped into car. I guess cause I am a combat veteran as soon as I woke up, I was in disassociate state cause of my PTSD. I was moving around too much and I didn't know where I was or who was with me. Fortunately, I had put that in my record before hand, so they helped guide me back to the present moment. I am very fortunate I didn't hurt my new boobs or rip open my suitors.I'm still groggy from the anesthesia, and I have been sleeping all day.

4 Day Post Op

Geesh! After reading my last post, you could tell I was really out of it still. I wish there was an option to reedit it. Oh well, what's done is done.

Anyways.. It has been a few days since my operation. I was mainly drugged up the for the most part because I was in so much pain. I recall my friends, who had the surgery themselves, saying how easily the surgery will be, and I will be up and walking around in no time. NOPE! That was a flat out lie!!!! I don't know if I am just a big baby or if it's cause I jumped up 3 cup sizes (B to DD). I had NEVER had surgery so this was a whole new experience. I found it best to do little as possible, ice packs were a godsend along with my meds. The only movement I did was for me to bath, do my breast exercises, and follow up in my post op appointment.

I got to say Dr. Mills has superb bedside mannerism. He addressed my concerns and saw how the surgery took an emotional toll on my body. I didn't feel rushed and certainly wanted to make sure I left reassured. He is the one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. I'm really happy I went with him, because I hear of some PS just treating you like another number.

6 Month Update

Love the size, HATE THE DOUBLE BUBBLE!!!! I am ashamed to take my bra off. I'm no plastic surgeon and I'm not sure why he tried to make my breast pocket bigger, but now I have double bubble. He said he will fix it after a year, but that's not soon enough. I model part time and use to do implied and topless. Now I am losing income because I have to limit my shots. I didn't want scars on my breast and now I have no choice but have to have them when he goes in for a second attempt. I'm contemplating seeing another doc and going to a lawyer to correct this HUGE MISTAKE!!!
