I met with my AWESOME plastic surgeon (and his incredible wife, plus the rest of their awesome staff) last month and they immediately won me over. Dr. Michael Vennemeyer (Southlake, TX) is so amazing that, even though he was my first consult, I "signed up" for surgery that same day of our first appointment! I had to cancel the other pre-consults I made =O It was just one of those feelings, where I instantly knew that I was where I needed to be for this procedure.
He explained all the ins and outs and warned me about the possible risks, while explaining all of the steps that he takes to ensure that the risks are minimized. I think he and his wife were pleasantly surprised to see that all of my wish boobs looked, basically, the same LOL Apparently, many women come in with pictures of all different types/styles/sizes of boobs... I explained that I've been dreaming about this day, for as long as I can remember, so I know exactly what I want =)
My surgery is set for Thursday, January 5th, 2017. It seems so far away, yet I know it will be here before I know it; especially, with all of the upcoming holidays. The end of this year is going to fly by!! During on the initial consultation, we decided we be doing silicone, over the muscle, with a lollipop lift. We're looking at the 600-640 cc range, which we'll settle on during my pre-op consultation, which is scheduled for Dec 13th =) I'll have the moderate-plus profile.
When I was last sized, by VS, they told me I was a 36 C... I laughed, as I swear I've always had to push stomach fat up to fill up an A cup!! The problem, I guess, is that I have no upper fullness - so, while a C cup does feel comfortable around the band, there's nothing but space at the top of my bra. Dr. Vennemeyer explained that I would require the larger implant, in order to get the fullness that I desired. He also advised that even this size of implant may not be enough, so I may require a fat grafting revision after the initial surgery. He explained that he didn't want to go much larger than the 600-640 cc due to the amount of breast tissue that I have; implants too far outside of that range would increase my risk of bottoming out.
I can't wait to get rid of my Peter Pan Slippers (that's what I call the girls now!) =) I'll be documenting my progress along the way, including taking (lots) of before and after pictures. I haven't started the picture-taking process just yet, so, for now, I'll just include shots of the wish boobs that I sent to my doctor. I just wanted to start the whole documenting process before I forgot =)
Much love and well wishes to all my fellow boob girls (and all of you others!). Feel free to comment, ask questions, whatever... I'm an open book and I enjoy sharing with people =) <3
