I'm a 31 year old personal trainer who use to be an elite track and field sprinter. My whole life I have been flat chested. Always wearing bras one size up just to fill them with cutlets. Most people really don't know how flat I was based on how much I would wear padded bras and sports bras.
All the females in my family are very heavy busted. I even have a sister that's an H ???? and mom is a triple D. And I always wondered why I never developed breast at all. My body fat percentage has always been low so i know that was a factor. I even purposely took a birth control called Apri that upped me one cup size and then the moment I would get off, within a week I was flat again.
So after my track career, years later coming into my 30's, being flat chested started to really get to me. In the gym I was able to grow and build my ideal body. Squats no shots! It worked but...agh As great as the rest of my body looked in an outfit the breast area just ruined most of the looks I was going for.
So after being so annoyed my having these weird looking things on my chest, I started googling breast augmentations. Not really thinking I would do it...just checking my options.
So here's how I found Dr Joseph. I found a groupon for laser hair removal in Winter Park for 6 treatments. The procedures were done in Dr Brian Joseph's office. So one day I decided to walk to the other side and set up a consultation. 2 weeks later they got me in.
The staff was amazing and meeting Dr Joseph was even more amazing. He gave me all my options, educated me on the options, answered almost every question I had written before I even asked them. Filled me with tons of knowledge on breast augmentations. I was completely sold! They even gave me his next available surgery date. However, I didn't want to me impulsive. But 5 days later I called to lock the date in. I never even visited any other surgeon. I felt so good about my choice. Like not one doubt in my mind.
So rewind, first time at center for laser treatment was mid July. 1st consult was first week of August. Pre op was second week of September...and surgery was on September 28th.
It is not Oct 8, 10 days post op and this has been just a smooth recovery. I had minimal pain throughout the whole process. Day of surgery of course I has nausea and of course extreme tightness, pressure and swelling. I stayed on course with my antibiotics and pain medication. I also took a Herbalife supplement called Restore that works wondering on post workout inflammation, soreness and muscle repair and I believe that made a huge different in my recovery. 3 days after surgery I no longer needed the pain meds. Day by day I saw big progress. Less swelling, less pain, less tightness, able to use my arms a little more each day. My breast where dropping each day, softening each day. My incisions I don't feel at all. Tape gets a little itchy but that's it.
2 days ago, 1 week after surgery I had my post op apt. I learned my massages and doc said I was healing wonderfully. I told him, I've had leg day workout pain that was worse than this and soreness lasted way longer.
So I felt so happy that I chose Dr Joseph. Surgery was a breeze and recovery has been super fast. This is the happiest I've been with decision making in a while. I'm so happy!!!
