I'm writing this review because RealSelf has been such a resource for me and I hope my experience can help someone considering a BA. I never thought in a million years that I would have a breast augmentation, but after nursing two babies, nature took it's course and I no longer felt comfortable in my skin. After several of my "mom friends" had BA's and were extremely happy with their results, I began my research. I had two primary goals. One was to have natural results. I wanted to look similar as I did before kids (32B), I wanted to be comfortable in swim suits around my kids and not have people know at first glance that I had a BA. Two was to pick a doctor I completely trusted. I consulted with three top doctors in the area and when I met Dr Shamoun (who was a referral from a friend), I knew immediately that he would be my doctor. He was warm, seasoned and knew exactly what I was going for. I was very apprehensive and he made me feel so comfortable that I let him make the final calls in the operating room. He gave me his cell phone number and answered my frantic texts the few days following surgery. While I'll admit the first three days were uncomfortable, I couldn't believe how simple the recovery process was. I had a peri-areola incision and other than the steri strips, you wouldn't even have known that I had surgery. My scars after only 6 months are so incredible that I swear he magically placed in the implants. After a few weeks, I was able to go right back into my regular workout routine and active lifestyle. My right areola is slightly lower than my left, but we decided it was so minimal to leave it be, so I didn't have a scar all the way around my nipple. And no one other than my husband and I will see me naked (and who is ever staring straight on), so no one would ever know. While I feel like they don't look that big in the picture, I'm currently measured at and wearing a 32D bra. (This was 2 months ago, so I should get measured again to see if it's any different). I absolutely love the way I look and feel! I am so happy I went through with the procedure and I highly recommend Dr Shamoun!!
