My Journey..... Hey guys, my name is Sam, I'm 27 years old, have no children and live a pretty dull life. stats: 173cm, 65kg, 12B, non smoker, low activity level and very rarely do I drink. I had my first ever BA consultation on Monday 29th Feb 2016 with Dr Theo Birch of The Breast Institute. I was greeted by name as is I entered. I was asked politely by the lovely receptionist to complete paperwork and was given a take home folder which included an information booklet that outlines everything about the procedure, a brochure on the (Montserrat) Gaythorne Day Hospital where the surgery would take place, an estimated quote and aftercare instructions. It was time, the consultation. I entered the rather large office of Dr birch. I was welcomed in and asked to take a seat. we discussed a few things, what look was I going for, some medical questions, the risks involved etc. the whole time I felt safe, not nervous at all which was quite a shock to me as any minute now I would be taking off my top for a complete stranger to have my boobs exposed/analysed/touched with absolutely no alcohol involved This is where the fun begins... There was a change room, a cornered off area of the office with a curtain and mirror. I was asked to remove my top. I followed the docs orders and came out wearing a brave face. After a few measurements were taken and a move of the boobs here and there I then had my "before" pics taken. Once the pics were taken (front on, diagonals, and side on) I was asked to put on a surgical sports bra (very sexy hahaha) I tried on quiet a few sized implants, first they were chicken fillet looking things and then as I went up to the larger sizes they were the actual implants. these babies were starting to get heavy. I asked the doc if this was how much they actually weighed once inside me and he said yes. That shocked me!!! After trying/re-trying sizes I put my top back on and sat down for an evaluation with the doc. implant stats: 420cc, round, textured, high profile, silicon Nagor implant. Inframammary incision (under the breast). My BWM was 12.5 What I'm looking for out of my experience is to go from a small B cup to a full D to DD. I don't want the obvious "step" at the top of my chest just a gradual (natural if you will) slope and I want side boob. I don't think I'm asking for much? doc said that's very achievable but the larger I go the more chance of getting the "step" and rippling at the sides. As I'm quite a "curvy" girl (sort of broad in the shoulders, have hips and thighs) I want my boobs to even me out. I'm naturally a shy person so during my day to day work life I'll be covered up but in the summer I LOVE being at the beach soaking up the rays. I imagine running down the beach like I'm on an episode of Bay Watch haha A girl can dream pic 1, obvious step. pic 2, gradual/ natural slope. After the consultation I went back to the reception area (by the way its, bright, welcoming, comfortable and nothing like a waiting room at the local doctors) paid for the consultation and then I was asked if there was anything else they could help with, any questions and if I had thought about possible surgery dates. I was VERY keen to have surgery ASAP and the lovely receptionist wrote down a few dates that Dr Birch would be available and then I was on my way. A few days went passed after over thinking about it, talking/negotiating with my husband, double checking when I could have time off work and after emailing the ladies at The Breast Institute (like 100 times) to triple-double check everything I finally booked in my surgery for Thursday 28th of April 2016. I'm SUPER excited, my husband still doesn't understand why and now I'm trying to get time off work as "sick/personal" leave. now the waiting game begins. To be continued..... THIS PROCESS WAS REALLY THIS SIMPLE, I DIDNT FEEL PRESSURED INTO A PARTICULAR SIZE/TYPE OF IMPLANT, I DIDNT FEEL RUSHED TO BOOK A SURGERY DATE, I FELT COMFORTABLE IN THE PRACTICE AND WITH ALL STAFF OF THE BREAST INSTITUTE, I UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS IS A SURGERY, THERE ARE RISKS INVOLVED AND THINGS DONT ALWAYS GO TO PLAN. THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE IM SHARING AND MY OWN OPINIONS ON THIS PLASTIC SURGERY COMPANY AND DOCTOR.
