Since coming across this forum, all of your stories have helped me immensly with making my surgery decisions, and preparing me for 'what I am getting myself in for', so I thought I would post my story to return the favour. Yesterday I had my face to face consult with Dr. Miroshnik. As many of the other women have posted, he is very warm and makes you feel comfortable instantaneously. I have never taken off my bra in front anyone (I have been in numerous long-term relationships and am 25 years old), however felt at ease to do so with Michael.
So before I get into my consult and what I am going to expect tomorrow for surgery, I will tell you all a little bit about myself. Since I was 14 I always noticed there was something not right about my breasts. They were always sitting low - and not very perky, which I thought was quite odd especially given my young age. I was very overweight as a child and coming into my teens, then lost around 15kgs so I am attributing my ptosis of breasts to that, and as Dr. Miroshnik confirmed my skin around my breasts is quite thin (which he said may be just genetic). So, growing up being ashamed of showing my breasts to anyone I was intimate with, I had learnt to live with it and never really considered surgery until my friend a year or so ago, got a BL and BA in Thailand and I saw her results...it made me consider surgery to help with this part of my body I am so embarassed of.
So, after doing my research for a year, considering Thailand - I decided to go with Dr. Miroshnik as I have only heard good reviews about him and his work..and looking on his website, his before and after pictures were exactly what I was looking for (also, as my surgery is a little bit more complicated than a straight BA I wanted to ensure I was in safe and experienced hands). I am from Melbourne, so I had a phone consult with him initially (a few months back), and yesterday had my face to face consult as I just aforementioned. He confirmed that I did need an anchor lift - as I have grade 3 ptosis, and recommended I have 250-275cc round textured implants - as he said if I go any bigger I am at risk of them dropping again due to my poor skin quality around my breasts. He also confirmed that they will be placed subfascially (so under the fascia but over the main muslce), as I would be at risk of a double bubbleif they were placed under the muscle, or dual-plane.
My cup size at the moment is a large C - so Dr M. predicted a 250cc should bring me to a nice D cup. However, looking at this forum many girls go >300cc, I am scared it may be too small? I am also worried about my scarring - but Dr. M assured me within 12 months they should fade. I was wondering if I could do anything to accelerate this process?
Tomorrow is the big surgery day, and I am SO nervous, as I keep reading about all the complications potentially involved with a lift and BA (and I have never had an operation or been under general anaethetic before). I know I shouldn't, but I honestly can't help myself. I know I am in good hands - but can't help but think what is something goes wrong!
WIll keep you all posted about my surgery tomorrow and how it goes! Wish me luck..
