Patient Testimonials Breast Augmentation
Angela's Breast Augmentation Testimonial
"I have had a GREAT experience"
I am 37 years old and prior to my breast augmentation I was a 36A. I have always wanted a breast augmentation for as long as I can remember. I did years of research and looked at hundreds of before and after pictures. I also joined a message board and talked to people that had this done.
I made my consult with Dr. Hedden and decided that he was the surgeon for me. He took the time to answer ALL my questions and I was comfortable with him and the staff. Dr. Hedden had asked me what size I was considering and I said 375cc's and he said let me just suggest that you go with 395cc's. His reason was that most woman want to be bigger because once the swelling goes down you see a different size. I left my consult still unsure about the size I wanted but I booked my surgery!
I went home and did the rice test in the stockings trying to figure out what I wanted. I wore the rice bags in my bras for days to get comfortable with the size I was considering. My husband thought at this point I was just boobie obsessed, which I was. I finally chose 395cc's, round implants and placed under the muscles, under the breast incision.
On my surgery day, I was so excited that I was finally going to have breasts after all these years of being flat chested. I started to get nervous once they took me back, but once I woke from surgery it was OK. The only thing I felt was heaviness on my chest. I felt that way for days. I never really felt any bad pain. I felt heavy on top. So, for me the recovery time was great.
There was another surgery date for me. I had the right breast that had "bottomed out" which means that the right breast was sitting slightly lower then the left. My husband said it was hardly noticeable but I noticed it. I wanted it fixed so Dr. Hedden went back in and did what they call tacking it up. That surgery for me was a little more painful then my first but still no regrets. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
I have not had any physical limitations because of my breast augmentation. I'm able to workout and go about my daily life with no problems.
With my surgery I was a 36A and with the 395cc's that put me at 36 small D. I'm very happy that I went ahead with the surgery. I feel better in clothes, my self-esteem has soared. I have had nothing but support from family and friends. I was excited so I had to tell everyone I knew.
In retrospect if I could change one thing I would have gone bigger! I do plan on going bigger in the future. Play with all the sizers or take a bra with you of the size you want to be and see what sizers fill it.
All in all, I have had a GREAT experience. Dr. Hedden and his staff are absolutely wonderful and I would recommend them anyone!
