Leigh's Breast Augmentation Testimonial
"My husband and I are extremely pleased with the results"
My name is Leigh and I am 30 years old. Prior to motherhood, I was not overly concerned with my breast size (34 small-B). However, two children later and many pounds lighter, I found that my breasts had virtually disappeared (34 A). Shirts simply hung on me. I spent several years feeling self conscious about my small breasts and simply not feeling good about how I looked. I wanted larger breasts. I wanted to feel more confident about my appearance.
My husband was extremely supportive. He understood that I felt self conscious about my body and wanted me to feel better about myself. He scheduled my first consultation. One week before my scheduled visit, I cancelled the appointment.
A few months after my cancelled appointment, he scheduled another consultation for me. The physician and his nurses were extremely nice and patient with me. I spent a great deal of time trying on the sizers in the attempt to try and determine what size would be best for me. (I'm 5'2" and weigh 105 lbs.) I was extremely concerned about choosing the right size and the surgeon was extremely helpful in this matter. Based on my wants and body size, he helped me decide on the perfect size for me. I went from a size 34 A to 34 full C. (My implants are saline and were placed submuscular with the incision under the breast.)
On the day of surgery, I was extremely nervous. I met with the Nurse Anesthetist to discuss anesthesia. He met my expectations to a "T".
Upon waking up from surgery, I really wasn't prepared for the type of pain I experienced. While I did have incisional pain, the tightness, swelling and muscle pain was much more intense. Pain medications helped, but the muscle relaxer and ice packs were my best friends. The top of my breasts (or the swelling) were just below my collar bone. (Don't worry. They settle into place.) Due to the soreness, I found it difficult to do simple things like sitting up. However, one week after surgery, I noticed an improvement on a daily basis. I followed my post-op instructions to the letter and had no complications.
I am now 3 months post-op. My husband and I are extremely pleased with the results. I can now purchase cute shirts and dresses and feel confident that I look good in them. I am glad that I had the surgery and would do it all over again without changing a thing.
