I am a 24yo with no kids, 5'5", 116lbs, and wear a 32b. I am planning on getting my BA on Jan 3rd and am thinking of getting anywhere between 350cc to 425cc. Yesterday I went to my first BA consultation. When I pulled up to the building I thought it looked welcoming. When I walked in the office was very dimly lit at it look outdated. I know this kind of thing doesn't matter to some people but to me it mad me feel a little uncomfortable. It didn't feel welcoming, it's hard for me to explain. The staff was really friendly and welcoming so it made me feel a little better. I filled out some paper work and was quickly called to the back. The front desk worker explained to me what the consultation would entail and the process of the post op and when I would be able to try on sizers, 2 weeks before op day, which I don't know of its the usual. The PS came in and I feel like he gave me his rendered consultation explanation which I have no problem with because I am sure he has these consultation probably on a weekly if not daily basis. He provided to tell me what that he does natural BA, used silicone implants, under the muscle, and though the areola. I was confused because from reviews and videos and questions on real self that PS answer there is a discussion if what you want and and what look you want. He was pretty much telling me the only option I had were the ones that he was telling me about. When I tried to ask about the inframammary incision he gave me a good explanation to why he prefers the areola incision is because the scar can be hidden better. I don't want the areola incision because I do want to in the future breastfeed and the incision through the areola cuts some of the milk ducts. I was nervous and a little overwhelmed by all the information that I didn't tell him my concern with the areola incision but he seemed so set on that incision. He examined me but we didn't discuss sizes, he didn't measure me and he didn't ask me what look I wanted. It felt less of a consultation and more on this is what I do and how I do it take it or leave it. When the consultation was done I waited in the waiting room for a couple of minutes and was called back by the their financial person who was super nice! She explained the procidure a little more and more op and post op appointments and at no time made me feel obligated to schedule an appointment then and there. The staff was super friendly the PS himself was very welcoming and also friendly I just am not comfortable with having my surgery with him. This was my first consultation and I have another one with a different PS on Tuesday Oct 18th. With the experience from my first I am going to be less hesitant with questions and stand my ground with what I want. Any suggestions that you guys may have would be much appreciated!!

2nd Consultation

My second consultation was like night and day! As soon as you walk in it is very well lit haha. The waiting room is clean and modern. the girls at the front desk are very nice and from what I saw know a lot of their patients by first name, which is really nice. My wait wasn't too long, only waited around or less than 10min after I finished filling out all the paper work. When I was finally called in I was taken to a room where the receptionist set up an interactive video explaining the breast augmentation surgery. At the end of the video you could scroll through the PS before and after pictures. The PS came in, introduced himself and started to talk about the different incisions and which one i was thinking of getting, also letting me know which he preferred to do but ultimately letting me decide what incision I wanted. He explained that he used the Kellar Funnel as well as injecting you with numbing medicine before they wake you up from surgery, so that as soon as you wake up you are not in severe pain. All things that I wanted to hear!!! He doesn't use drains and doesn't require you to come in for a check up until your first week. All great things!!

We went into another room where they have the Vectra 3D imaging system as well as all the implants to try on!! I want to be a full C small D but i am so afraid of boob greed in the long run. I tried up to a 400cc which in my opinion was big , but my mom (she came with me to my consult lol) said that it was a great size. Once I go above a 360cc I have to go to high profile because of my band width. I am afraid that the 400cc is too big and according to the PS with an implant that big a natural look is out the window, which is what I want. i'm also afraid that the 360cc moderate profile in the end won't give me the projection, size and cleavage that i want. outside of your body the implant looks huge but once it's placed behind the muscle and under the breast tissue that i have will it be too small? Ugh figuring out the size and profile you want is the most difficult thing. It's not like a shirt where if it fits too small you can exchange it for another size, you have to pay another $5,000 or more to "exchange" implants haha. I haven't scheduled it yet but this is the PS that i want to do my surgery! For my pre op appointment i am definitely going to try on each size of implant i am considering. Any advice or pointers that helped you decide on your size implant will help me so much!!
