Breast augmentation was something I thought about...

Breast augmentation was something I thought about for years but was never willing to spend the money - feeling like it was a selfish expense and there were always so many other financial priorities. I've always had small breast (34A) since high school. When I had children, -I have 2 teenagers- they got bigger when breast feeding but always went right back to the size they were pre-pregnancy. I've always been a little "hippy" and with such small boobs never felt like my body was very balanced or feminine.
I did a bit of research abt the procedure on line and found the realself website. On Realself I found Dr. Evan Feldman and liked his reviews and his breast augmentation photo gallery. His after pictures consistently looked very natural and beautiful.
I talked to my husband about it and he was supportive but told me that he didn't feel like I needed it - but if it's what I wanted he was all for it.

First, I spoke with Jeanette on the phone and emailed her some photos. She was super nice, informative about the consult process and made me feel very comfortable. Jeanette called me the very next morning and said I would be a good candidate for the procedure. That was Wednesday June 10th and I went for my consult on Friday June 12th.
Dr. Feldman spoke with me at length about his experience, technique, appropriate sizing, saline vs silicone, different profiles, my expectations and wish boobs, and preop/ post op expectations and lots of other things. He stressed the importance of being realistic about post op restrictions - not being able to lift over 2 lbs for (at a minimum) 2 weeks and not being over active for 4-6 weeks depending on swelling, rate of healing, etc etc. Dr. Feldman also did my breast measurements at my consult. (I think my BWD was left 12.5 and right 13.) I tried on sample implants and he had me put on a tank top over the different sizes so I could see how they looked with clothes on.
He spent a long time with me at my consult (almost 2 hours) and I asked him 40 million questions and if he was annoyed he never let on. He was relaxed, joked with me-(I was a nervous wreck-ha) he was not pretentious at all, and answered all of my questions very thoroughly.
After Dr.Feldman and I finished talking about what size I felt comfortable with and what he felt looked the best, Jeanette gave me price quotes and available dates. I explained I wanted to have a mammogram first and discuss everything with my husband. I felt no pressure at all to schedule my procedure and Jeanette said to just let her know if and when I wanted schedule the procedure and to let her know even if I decided to not have it done at all. I really appreciated that there was no pressure at all after they had spent so much time with me. The entire staff and experience was superb. Dr. Feldman and staff made me feel so comfortable at my consult and bc of that he was the only ps I consulted prior to my procedure.

Anyway, 2 weeks after my consult I scheduled my procedure for July 16th. Had my Preop visit July 7th, tried on the implants again with my husband there, went over all the paperwork, and got my post op prescriptions.
July 16th, I went in at 9am, met with anesthesia, met with Dr. Feldman comfirmed that I hadn't changed my mind abt size, he drew all over my chest with a purple market, I was back in the OR at 10:15 or so and on my way home by 1:30pm. I got 371cc moderate profile plus under the muscle. I am a week post op and aside from some stomach bloating I couldn't be happier.
Actually, I had very little post op pain-and I was expecting it to be bad. I wore a sportsbra and binder/band thing for the first 4 days and then Dr. Feldman said I could ditch the binder and just wear the sportsbra.
The only issue I am having with this entire process is having to sleep elevated and on my back. My husband probably wants to punch me bc I am up several times every night bc I can't fall asleep and can't get comfortable bc I normally sleep on my side. (But he is super sweet abt it and tells me I don't bother him at all).

I'm super happy with my experience and results and new boobs!!. Dr. Evan Feldman and his staff have my highest recommendation. Bancroft Feldman Plastic Surgery in Sugar Land, TX- check them out!!!
