Patient Testimonials Breast Augmentation
Leeann's Breast Augmentation Testimonial
"Dr. Hedden was highly recommended by several people"
I am 32 years old, 5'2" and weigh 105 pounds. For years I was so afraid to go to the doctor to even have my finger pricked, let alone a major surgery. But, I was scheduled for another procedure and was prepared to be off work.
My friend who had implants herself actually made the suggestion about getting implants. She said, "Since, you're going to be off work anyway, you could have breast augmentation." At that time I weighed less than 100 pounds and was a very small B cup. I thought, "Here I am always wearing the thickest padded bra I could find, having implants is an excellent idea!"
Once I made the decision, I knew I wanted to use Dr. Hedden. I wanted to be able to have both surgeries simultaneously, but, it ended up being more economical to have the surgeries performed on separate days. Dr. Hedden was highly recommended by several people. From the beginning, he and I had a great rapport and all his staff was very helpful. I liked the fact that I was able to try on the implants. It gave me an idea of what I would actually look like. I chose rather large implants for my size, and I wasn't sure if Dr. Hedden would agree. But he got several measurements from me and said the size would be fine. I would be going from a very small B to a 34D.
The day of surgery I was scared. But, everyone there, especially the anesthesiologist, put me at ease. I told him that I felt nauseated and he gave me some medicine in my IV. I received 425 cc implants. My incisions were made underneath my breasts. I don't remember anything about the surgery. The last thing I remember is talking to the nurse.
When I woke up, I was in a lot of pain, though Dr. Hedden did warn me beforehand. I kept asking for more pain medicine. It felt like an elephant was on top on my chest, it hurt to even walk!
The next day I felt so much better and each day got even better. I went back to work the next the week and wasn't taking any medication. Within four weeks, I was able to go back to the gym. I had no complications at all. The only downfall was that I was so swollen and they were huge at first.
Today, I continue to mainly wear sports bras. I sleep in one every night. It is awesome to be able to not have those bulky padded bras that I used to wear. I would tell anyone that considers breast augmentation that it's a personal issue. Personally, I would do it all over again. I am very happy with the results and so is my husband!
