1. Make sure your PS has experience with AA skin.
A. My PS asked me about keloids not hyperpigmentation. Well I developed scaring under the breast fold 3 months later.
B. I used shea butter, cocoa butter, skin lightening with 2% hydroquinone, and bio-oil. I don't wear underwire bras. 11 months later scars are still there.
2. Ask to see pictures before/after pictures of AA patients.
A. PS was highly recommended by my non AA co-workers and the PS community.
3. Patients with a wider rib cage need more cc's than the average patient.
A. I was a 38b before my BA. 11 months later I'm a 38c
B. I have 475cc smooth round mod plus silicone in my rt breast and 500cc in the left.
C.. Wt. 180 Ht. 5'6
D. The PS nurse said, " you have enough breast tissue. You could have gone bigger."
4. Will I do it again.
A. Maybe...but, with another PS
B. Do I want the scars removed? Yes

I have nothing bad to say about his work. I'm unhappy with my size and the scaring but, that is my fault for not doing my research better !! My breast are nice, natural looking and feeling but my BF said, they were nice before my BA.
