Had my consult with Mark today and it went really well. Will be asking for some time off work and then confirm my surgery and final consult date. It was so funny because I hardly had any questions because of all the research I've done on here, but I'm sure I will have more closer to the date.
Mark started off by wanting to know my reasons for getting implants. He then spent quite a bit of time explaining the different types of implants and the textures etc. he used pictures of real patients to explain how each one would look. He then said it was really important for him to understand the look I am going for before he can suggest what type of implant/placement I should get.
I then showed him the pictures I wanted. He was very happy because all the pictures I showed him and what I was saying was all consistent.
I then tried on some sizers (best day ever to see yourself with boos!!) and I was left with 2 different sizes which equated to around 380cc or 420cc. I was EXTREMELY surprised that I could fit so much from the other comments. I am 5ft3 and around 50kgs so quite petite. I decided that 420cc might be a bit too big. I was happy with the 380cc so I thought to add a bit extra and we decided on 400cc. My BWD is 12cm so we decided to go with a high profile implant.
So 400cc, high profile, smooth shell under the muscle.
He said that he is a perfectionist so all the post op appointments are with him. There was no mention of fee waivers for any revision surgery (ie if its their fault) but then again it was only the first consult, but I will ask the nurses tomorrow about that.
Mark told me to read through the info they gave me and not to rush into anything. I thought that he might've thought I was rushing because I had no questions lol but really it's because I've been lurking on here for so long and am 100% sure that this is what I want.
The receptionists and nurses are really nice. The receptionist went through all the pricing (around $15k in total) and then went through all the available dates in September and wrote them down for me. Very very friendly.
I feel comfortable spending the extra money going with Mark as he is such a perfectionist and I know that if anything did go wrong he would be very supportive in correcting it as he has an image and reputation to uphold. Will keep you guys update as to my surgery date. Very excited.
