57 Years Old Much Needed Implants Replaced - Nashville, TN

I have been looking on Real Self for 1 month or so...

I have been looking on Real Self for 1 month or so.I had saline implants put in 250cc in July 2000.I have lost 100 pounds in 2014 and noticed a my breasts have gotten some sagging to them.I am getting very concious of this in front of my Husband and lately just makes me almost get upset about it.I have decided to get some consults about changing to silicone implants and going fuller.I have lost a little volume not much ,I am 5'8 and weigh about 175 pounds.My doctor said today to get the look I want wont be very perky at my age but as a comprimise I am getting scar tissue removed and new larger implants silicone gel put in instead of doing a full lift,their wont be as much scaring with that.I saw some pictures of doing this procedure and liked the look I will get.My doctor was very informative to me and specific about my results I was expecting.I feel I can trust her to treat me.

I saw Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville Dr Mary Gingrass M.D. and she is informative for what I want accomplished ,the sagging has got to go gets on my nerves big time.She is taking out the scare tissue and putting in new silicone gel implants,I am only going 1 size bigger cup size or so will be a ddd.Was going to go little larger but decided against it dont want to risk complications from to larger and want also to have a natural look not plastic look.Glad my Husband helped me make the final decision.He always helps me to do whats best.
