Dr. Yamahata - Mentor Smooth Round ModPlus Profile 300cc Saline - Sacramento, CA
Hi RealSelf! This is my first 'review' on here and...
Talked to my surgeon today...
He and I decided on an under the flap incision. He said because my breasts have a bit of sag to them that the scars won't be visible/noticeable. I will probably go with a Mod Plus profile, but Dr. Yamahata will make the decision on what looks best during surgery. When I went and tried on sizers, I decided on a frame of 275cc to 300cc. I want to be a full C at the largest. He said to bring in wish pictures the day of my procedure and he will see what cc size looks best on me while referencing my photos. It is still 5 or so weeks away but I'm getting so excited!!
So grateful for RealSelf -
RS assisted in my selection of surgeon, in addition, it is a safe place to share your journey :)
Plastic surgery isn't the most comfortable thing to freely talk about so I love that I can come here for my questions. I can also gain some support from those who have been thru a similar journey.
No one really knows about my BA because I don't really have anyone I can fully confide in(besides my mom and boyfriend) so I love that I can come here! Some positive support from such sweet people has really helped me through this process!
ONE MO. TO GO!!!! Needing advice!
I'm hoping some ladies that have gone through this procedure can help me a bit with preparation. So I notice some surgeons say to avoid vitamin E prior to surgery, if I take a daily multivitamin should I stop because it has vit E value in it?
I am also starting a list of things to have before/after surgery...what else should I add!?
I do know for sure that the one thing I'm looking forward to buying is a cute VS tracksuit for surgery as a way to kind of treat myself. Lame I know! Haha
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you RS! Xx
I have set this up in my head of how I would like things to go; let's see if things go as ideally as I anticipate!
I am a student and am approaching the end of the semester. When my two weeks is up at work, my surgery will be exactly one week away from that date. I figure this will give me time to get myself all set up for post surgery. In that week prior to my BA, we are moving houses. If I pull this off as I have planned, we will be majority moved in to our new space and I will at least have my rest station set up(bed pillows tv etc), pg&e, and cable/wifi set up before my surgery. My boyfriend will then move in all the heavy stuff(moving furniture is boy work anyways lol :p) while he lets me rest up in our new place :)
I'm so excited! Excited for quitting my job(finally!) so I can find a more reputable business to work for, excited for our move and our new home, and then lastly my BA! Things seem to be falling into place- hopefully it stays this way :)
Apart from all these life changes, regarding the BA, I'm thinking I want to go a little bigger than I originally anticipated. I already had my pre op but I am going to call today to see if I can come in just once more before my surgery! My surgeon has been helpful and so sweet throughout all of this so I'm sure he won't have an issue accommodating something. Here are some newer wish pics, just a touch fuller. Hard to tell if she has a big cc size or just plays them up?
Overall I am just excited for 'My Time' to come; gets more real as the days pass ;-)

Day 9 PO Update!
Day 9 Post Op pics...viewing is weird?
So on the RS app, my day 9 PO review only displays 10 out of the 27 photos I uploaded today. However, on the app, if you go to the top of my profile and go through all of my photos start to finish, you can view all the photos I uploaded. I'm not sure why they are all technically uploaded and 'on' my review, but only 10 of them are showing up on my day 9 post; you guys should be able to see 27 there
However, if you are on the RS webpage from a desktop/laptop, all of the 27 photos uploaded correctly and are displayed with the intended day 9 post. Which is what I wanted! Lol
Sorry for the long post, hope it makes sense and that you all can make sense of my photos with their corresponding posts. Thanks, xo!
17 days post op...
Knowledgable in both traditional medicine/surgery and plastic surgery as well as extensive training in both and it shows. Very confident in my choice of surgeon. **Update post procedure: I was sooo beyond nervous going through with my BA. Dr Yamahata and his staff were so confident in their work and I could tell they all knew exactly what to do regarding my procedure and how to calm my nerves. I couldn't have asked for a better "first time plastic surgery" experience if I coordinated it myself. I admire Dr Yamahata's intelligence regarding the anatomy of the human body and how it operates, as well as his skill in performing beautiful aesthetic results. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you Dr Yamahata and staff, for everything.
