Breast Augmentation

had always been self conscious about my breasts and always thought of breast augmentation but I wasn't happy with so many other areas of my body that I put it aside until now. I then lost around 10kg, so I decided to get an augmentation to reward myself and be able to feel 100% happy. It wasn't until I started sending my photos so surgeons that I found out I was tuberous. I didn't even know what this meant but now I had an explanation for why I never felt comfortable with my breasts. I contacted Dr Benjiman Norris in March with my concerns and was surprised to get an email back that night from his personal email account. The next day I spoke with Shannon and arranged a consult. My first impression was the practice is beautiful and everyone was lovely. Dr Norris was very genuine, he made me feel at ease and explained my abnormalities as I had never heard of it before. He was very adamant about me not making a rushed decision which is something that I respected. I then took home I sizer so I could have a think about what I would like if I was to proceed. I was really happy with my consult so over the next few days I booked my surgery for early May. Leading up to the surgery I had one more consult so that I could chose my size. There are so many pictures of before and afters on the internet that I was so confused about what size I needed. I initially chose a 370cc and I am so glad that we ended up going with a 445cc after that second consult. On the day of my surgery I was pretty nervous. I suffer from anxiety so I explained this to my anesthetist (Dr Michael Rose) he and his assistant were so reassuring! I actually fainted twice while Dr Norris was marking me (embarrassing!) but Dr Rose was able to give me something to calm my nerves and we got there in the end. For the first few days I felt really tight and looking at my implants they looked so weird. They were far apart and pointy and I was pretty freaked out. I had to wear a stabilizer band as well and I was lucky I had a week off work while everything settled. I took photos every few days so I could compare and they were starting to look more normal every day. The main pain that I experienced wasn't the implants themselves it was more like a weight on my chest. This stayed for around 3 weeks. Mainly painful in the morning when I was getting out of bed but once I had moved around I was ok. Now, 3 months post they are so amazing and I am so happy. It really does show that they are going to be so different to day 1! I had regular check ups with Dr Norris and his nurse to change my dressings and check how I was. I had a scare that I had an infection and Dr Norris replied to my text straight away to reassure me that I was ok. I am really happy with my results and am so thankful to Dr Norris and his team. I have so much more confidence now and I feel like this is the best thing I ever did!
