I am currently one year post op. I got 385CC silicone implants and am a 34C post op. I am really glad i went with silicone because they look and feel EXTREMELY NATURAL. I will say that i wish I would've gone a little bit bigger but i am happy with my results. This was my first surgery ever and it was nerve wrecking but i had a pleasant experience post op. Waking up from anesthesia was a little weird because i woke up scared but everything went smoothly. I felt pressure on my chest immediately when i woke up; like an elephant sitting on my chest! the pain killers were great for the first three days post op but after that I only took them to sleep and mainly iced my chest throughout the entire day to reduce swelling. Even though i still experienced pain, the pain killers made me drowsy and i didn't want to feel like that all day. Walking around the house helped me move my bowels aside from taking a MILD stool softener. I started driving 10 days post op and it was HARD. If i didn't have to i probably would have waited another week to drive. My implants dropped quickly and i started seeing my results but you have to be patient with your body. for about 9 days post op i drank ALOT of fluids and ate mostly soups, chicken and low salt foods to prevent me from gaining too much weight from water retention. Overall i had an amazing experience because my doctor made me feel confortable every step of the way and was very knowledgeable. If i had to get another procedure though, i would think twice about going to his office because his staff was TERRIBLE!!!!! Having great staff ultimately sets your experience because they are the medium between you and your doctor and his staff made this communication so hard.
Dr Ortega was so patient, knowledgable, and honest when answering all of my questions. He explained the whole procedure to me and recommended what was best for me and explained to my why the size he suggested was the best option for me.
