Srdan Babovic, M.D.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Babovic and his team have been so helpful and supportive through this process. This was the second PS that I consulted about having a BR. I immediately felt welcomed and at ease. The staff were very friendly and answered all my questions both before and after surgery. They took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure and what to expect during recovery which was very helpful. At my 2... READ MORE

I'm a 31 year old mother of 2, 5'11 and 200 lbs. I have been considering a BR for the last 5 years and have finally mustered the courage to go through with it.

I think it's way too early to tell. I am 3 months out and I think my swelling has finally resolved but the shape of my breasts continue to evolve. Hang in there! You look great! READ COMMENT

I continued to drink 2-3 cups a day after surgery and didn't have any problems. I think the caffeine is a vasoconstrictor which may affect blood flow to the skin and nipples? So you may want to ask your PS about it READ COMMENT

My left side was my trouble maker. It had very bad bruising and took 6+ weeks for the skin color to go back to normal. I'm 3 months out and I actually like the shape/appearance of slow poke leftie better :) READ COMMENT

I think it took a good 6-8 weeks for the swelling to go down for me. I had a lot of bruising too. Hang in there :) READ COMMENT
