Julia's Breast Augmentation Testimonial

"The surgery and recovery was a lot easier than I anticipated"

I am a 33 year old mother of two. After the birth of my second child, my breasts became deflated and saggy. I had contemplated having implants for a couple of years. I finally decided to splurge and schedule my surgery.

I never felt any anxiety about the surgery. I was already a C cup prior to surgery but needed the fullness and perkiness back. I decided to go to a full D cup.

My surgery was scheduled on a Saturday at 2:00. My husband waited in the lobby while I went back and got ready for "the new me." Dr. Hedden came in and marked the size right on my breasts to be sure there were no mistakes, then the nurse began to administer the IV for the anesthesia.

When I woke up from the surgery I was freezing. I felt a lot of pressure, like an elephant was sitting on my chest. The nurse gave me a nice warm blanket and helped me put on the sports bra and my terry cloth jacket. She then wheeled me down in a wheelchair to the lobby where my husband was waiting.

When I got home I started taking the prescriptions. I took these like clockwork the first 24 hours and slept most of the time. I had to have help sitting up in the bed because you cannot put any strain on the arm muscle. The next day I got out of the bed and walked to the couch. I could move around really well. Even though I made myself move around I was careful not to pick up anything or strain my arm or chest muscles.

By the third day I would say I was back to 95% which really surprised me. The surgery and recovery was a lot easier than I had ever anticipated. It definitely was worth what little pain I had and worth every cent I paid. I would do it again in a minute.
