Another highly regarded DFW surgeon insisted I needed a breast lift to fill the lack of volume at the top of my breasts (yay, motherhood!). The invasiveness and cost of the procedure made me rethink if it was worth it. Then I met the right doctor...
He examined me and told me that a lift was not at all necessary, and that higher placed implants would require much less recovery and give me the results I was looking for. I also inquired about resizing my aereolas (I've always thought they were a bit big), and the doctor gave me information about it but gave me the impression that he didn't think it was necessary and I might want to wait an decide later. It made me think highly of him and respect that he had my best interest in mind and not an extra few zeros on my bill.
We discussed different volumes and thought we would go with somewhere between 325 and 375cc's, but he explained that once they are compressed under the muscles it may be necessary to make adjustments. I ended up getting 425cc's and feel so lucky to have a surgeon with such good judgement. My breasts were about a 36C/34D previously, so it sounds like they would be enormous now, but he placed them so well that at one week post op, I'm about a 38D/DD (which is very proportional to my height and weight.)
Most important to me was that I not look like I had "bolt ons" and he succeeded marvelously. I'm of the opinion that not looking "done" is the true mark of a great plastic surgeon. One of my best friends of over a decade didn't even notice until he asked about some plastic surgery paperwork I had laying out. I'm so excited to see how everything will look once the implants have settled, because I'm already so impressed with my results. Oh, and the doctor was right - my aereolas look proportional now - no surgery needed.
