Loving the "girls"
Dr. Horndeski is knowledgeable and to the point. I liked that. I expressed my desire to utilize this method because I wanted to reduce the strain on my neck and shoulders, even out size and lift my breasts with minimal scarring. He showed me pictures of the process itself. It's genius. I'm now 3.5 weeks out and I'm not sure how I feel about my choice just yet. I love that my breasts are a high and look great in a bra. As a matter of fact...I LOVE THE WAY THEY LOOK IN A PROPERLY FITTING BRA! I don't love that they look to me to be significantly smaller than what they were and there's a couple things that may need to be tweaked once I'm done healing. But hey, that's motive to shrink my body next. One of the things that you might want to note, if considering this procedure, is that forward projection of the breast is decreased but the base is significantly increased; and that's an adjustment in the way you view your breasts. I mentioned to him that I felt like the top of my breasts were somewhat flat. He said they looked good and were progressing well. At one point in time they were very triangular. The right one has significantly rounded out. So he was right. The left one still has a little bit to go. To clarify, I'm aware that this is a process and the results aren't apparent overnight. So for now, I'm still optimistic and patiently waiting. I think my shape, the feel of them and their placement in my chest is going to be fine. I am mildly concerned that my nipples do not look the same but I'm happy they are level and think this will be a quick, simple fix. I've had some complications but nothing that the doctor caused. Google Mondor's Disease. This happened to me and is a perfect example of why it's important to follow the instructions in the packet his office provides. When you're still swelling your bra can become tight causing this condition. Fortunately this is a temporary and isn't a major problem, but is definitely uncomfortable. After I read about how rare it was I was impressed that he immediately knew what I was talking about and provided insight. Today, one incision started weeping and I contacted his office staff. Jana was amazingly prompt, very helpful and gave me care instructions and called out a precautionary antibiotic immediately. Overall, I have to say my experience has been pretty positive and I'm confident my end results will be as well!
