As advised by Dr Arthur, it may be worthwhile to use breast pump to prepare breasts for the procedure. Breasts pumps may increase space which allows more fat to be injected, as well as may increase the formation of new blood vessels which may increase the survival of newly-transplanted fat. I bought noogleberry and use it for 1 hour a day for 30 days prior to the procedure to be effective.
Prior to the surgery date booked, I have to answer all the medical questions and information provided will be reviewed by Dr Arthur personally to decide whether you are
an ideal candidate for liposuction. Once he agrees to perform the surgery for you, you still need to go for blood test at lab. Only when your blood test is normal, can you book a surgery slot with Dr Arthur. All these necessary precautions are taken to ensure your surgery as safe as possible.
Dr Arthur only does ONE surgery per day. I felt like a queen, as I am the only patient listed for that day, and i received undivided attention from the surgeon. I stayed 3 days 2 nights in the clinic which is also Dr Arthur's bungalow in Medan. The pain was bearable to me and to my impression the most painful was the moment the sedation was injected. Father surgery, except my inner thigh (lipo area) felt lumpy and numb, the breasts was all right to me. I got to walk slowly for a week due to the lumpy inner thigh. I can resume normal activities after the surgery except sport exercises. Some pics attached for the process of the recovery of my transplanted breast.
Total of 120 cc fat was injected to both breasts for first session. This is what I like the method used by Dr Arthur, inject bit by bit per session rather than over inject which ensures high survival.
Now is 3 months post surgery, I would say 90 percent is fat retained so far. The second session of fat transfer to the breasts is scheduled in another 3 months later.
