Okay-- finally my one month updates! I have been through a Rollercoaster of emotions--
Back tracking to week one and two of my Breast augmentation, the implant sits very high, about 2 inches or less below my collar bone, so at first glance, I was emotionally distraught and upset, because in the early stages of the Breast augmentation procedure like in wks one and two, they look high and FLAT! Almost hiding... I was told numerous times to be patient. My doctor asked for patience. His nurse asked for patience. And each time I went home crying because I did not listen to them- I was so convinced this was the final result!! So devastated and confused and these are all normal feelings because i have read others stories and I did not feel alone, but you know it's just that initial shock of seeing them for the first time in the mirror and trying to figure out by yourself where the hell are the implants!!! HAHAHAHA :)
When week 3 and 4 arrived....WELL was I WRONG!!! and my doctor and his nurse were so RIGHT!!!
It was like I woke up about I would say the 20th day after the procedure and my babies were here!!! It is the most odd experience to go through this procedure, at least in my opinions! I can't describe the feelings-over the last several weeks-- even though the most amazing doctor held my hands and asked for patience I still can't figure out why I refused! I guess because what I was looking at in the mirror was hard for me to understand how they would, as he (my doctor) said 'drop/fluff' etc!!
That morning I woke up and they were here!! They appeared at first round, red and sore-- and perfect size !! They do not compare to the size that they are now as to weeks 1 and 2. They are exactly the size I asked for and look exactly like the pictures I brought to my doctor as well!!
With them sore and red I immediately started the massage advice my doctor gave me, I suppose each doctor will have their own preference, but with my doctor its a fairly simple excercise and just do it a few times a day, 2-3 min and the red, raw soreness diminishes!
Each day that passes, I kick myself for feeling distraught, stressed and disappointed in weeks 1 and 2. I put myself through unnecessary stress-- And I should have supported my doctor and his advice %100!!
Even though my doctor stood by my side and I read and reviewed hundreds of Breast augmentations stories on here- the weeks 1 & 2 were super scary, but just wanted to share this update so that when you're in early stages after the procedure, the results produce slowly and of course now I'm PATIENT!! Every day they are changing, they are softening and in my next update i would like to add some cool things I've found useful to use during the pain aspect and of course for massage, but everyone is different of course so I will share what worked for me and of course sizes in next update--
I would like to give a sincere apology to Dr.Lawton for not trusting his judgement in wks 1 and 2- he is so compassionate and even held my hands and asked for 'patience' as its a process, and I ignored him- I have never had such a procedure like this ever in my life & he still put up with my 'crybaby' face every visit !! He still stood by my side %100, assuring me, comforting me and knew the outcome, It was just such a confusing thing to see them in those first 2 weeks, that I regret not staying calm and patient- I felt almost like I was suppose to see immediate results, in which again, repeating, it's a process takes time to 'drop/fluff' So now, weeks 3 & 4, and every promise Dr.Lawton made to me are here :) all of his advice and his asking of patience is so true! And that is why I am sharing this moment as well, because it's very endearing to expect perfection on day one, and that's just not how it works -
Dr.Lawton is wonderful- on end of week 4 when I went to see him, I made sure to apologize and give cookies and card and of course cried like a baby!! And I wish I could have hugged him for eternity because my results are perfect! He is perfection! He is passionate about his work, he is very precise and you will know that through consultation, he will share his knowledge on each type of implant and he is honest what is best for you!! Which I love!! He has never rushed me or made feel like 'just another patient', but he has such a sense of humor that he is so forgiving and compassionate too-- he made me feel like I was #1 every appointment! He is doctor of the universe in my book!
Read my story and if you are feeling scared or unsure or are in early stages after Breast augmentation, rest assured your results will follow as long as Dr.Lawton was your doctor! Even if you are searching for a doctor, go to him ask questions.. He is patient! And this is the lesson he has taught me, that through a procedure, it's a process and to be.......
I highly recommend Dr.Lawton and his staff for breast augmentation procedure- when you venture in to his office you will see his many credentials and endless awards!! I want to thank him a million times over and his terrific nurses who work endlessly to assure your comforted through the entire process- the anesthesiologist he works with is also amazing and I want to thank him is well as I was terrified prior to going 'under'- and just for kicks, when Dr.Lawton was making his final marks on my chest, and reviewing my request of size I desired, and I was about to go to the operating room, he said 'are you ready for perfection?' And then gave me a high-five! :) and of course, I didn't reply but cried and cried until eventually I was asleep-
I love Dr. Lawton! Thank you for reading my experience I hope this helps some one who me be fearful or going through the same mixed rollercoaster feelings I went through too!!!
Thank you!! They are perfect! I feel like a completely different woman!
