My surgery experience:
We drove back to San Diego on December 12th for my pre-op consultation. Dr. Pousti again answered my questions. My surgery was on December 13th, 2013. I actually felt calm and relaxed prior to my surgery. I have had numerous surgeries prior to my breast augmentation surgery, and I can honestly say that I never felt as calm as I did going into this surgery. My husband and I both commented on how Dr. Pousti and his surgical team were calm and professional (This is important to me as I am a RN myself). I had my surgery done and received excellent post op care. We went back to our hotel that afternoon, and I actually felt pretty good. I was tender, yet I was aware of the importance of moving my legs. I begged my husband to take me for a walk that same evening. I heard from friends that they had a great deal of pain and that they were on their back for a week. To be honest, I was not that uncomfortable. I was tender for a week, however, I felt better moving around on my feet.
I had saline implants done. 890cc's on the right and 860cc's on the left. I asked for a round, full look. Dr. Pousti was able to give me the look that I wanted:). We saw Dr. Pousti again on my third post-op day. Everything went well, and his staff again were amazing. I received excellent follow up care. I think I received a call everyday for a week from either Dr. Pousti or a staff member. I was told that I could call anytime if I had any questions or concerns. I did not have any concerns and my husband who is also a RN, took excellent care of me after my BA.
I am now 1 month out exactly since my breast augmentation. I couldn't be happier with the results. I saw Dr. Pousti last week and it seems as though I am healing well. It felt odd throwing away my 34 A bras and replacing them with 34 DDD bras. Odd, in a happy way that is!!! I am extremely happy with how I look now. I have no regrets at all!!! I am okay with people looking at me and asking me if my breasts are fake. I truly believe that having this BA, has boosted my self image and confidence. I teach nursing currently, and I have had previous students compliment me on my new breasts.
This was the best thing that I have ever done!!!
I wish I started this posting earlier! I promise to update this more frequently from this point on...
