I just always (since a teen) wished I had bigger, fuller breasts, but didn't want to be BIG, just bigger. I was an A to start with and wanted to be a full B. I didn't want to draw attention to myself I just wanted to feel more proportioned since I always had hips but was smaller on top. I found a Dr. I felt I could trust. Unfortunately, after surgery I ended up a full D. A 2x D in some bra brands. I felt like porn star. On a small 5'2 frame I was very uncomfortable. Not only uncomfortable I was in pain, but I gave it time thinking everything would work out. I gave it a year. Even after everything supposedly healed if I went to the gym and did anything to strenuous I would be hurting for days after. So I wouldn't work out like I used to. It felt like something would shift in my chest and be out of alignment or something. I know that sounds weird but that's the best way I could explain it. If I laid on my stomach I would hurt and be in pain. My back and neck were hurting. The surgeon acted irritated when I voiced my concern and how upset I was at the size. I remember before leaving the room she said "Well your implants are smaller than mine!" She's a slender woman but a much taller woman than I am, of course her implants are bigger! She spoke to me like I was a moron. I sat there shocked that she would even talk to me like that. She couldn't even tell me what size implant was placed. I had the paperwork from the surgery and there were two sizes circled. During the consultation and follow up we never discussed me needing two different sizes. I was told when I called by the staff that they weren't sure which size was used and that another person had assisted her with the surgery and might have circled the wrong size in the paperwork. That was the first I heard she had somebody else with her performing the procedure. That was never discussed in any appts prior to surgery. She did tell me in the follow up "We barely got them in!" Really? She did offer to replace them with a smaller size and not charge for the implants. I just wanted them out and be done with it. I was terrified to go back and have them removed especially by her but I wanted them out. I am done and healed but am left with an indention in my left breast close to the center of my chest. It's further down so I can wear higher shirts that cover it. I did contact the office to tell them about the indention and was told she didn't have time to see me but I could email her a picture. I never contacted her again. I still have pains on that side. I've thought about going to another Dr and having it looked at but the thought of another potential surgery feels me with dread.
