After pregnancy number 3, I worked extremely hard to get my pre-baby body back. And i did. I was careful with my diet and exercised intensively to achieve my goal. However, my breasts were not quite there. I felt self-conscious and unhappy with my appearance and began to research breast augmentations. For a long time, it was only a dream. Young children and financial priorities prevented me from going any further than research. I was certain that I would need a lift as well but was concerned about the scarring and the price. The decision was made when a friend underwent a lift & BA in Thailand. Her experience was positive and results were great. I booked my trip & contacted the surgeon but was very anxious about the overseas surgery. As I was reading some stories of overseas surgeries gone wrong, I stumbled across Dr Ellis Choy in my research on the internet. I thought it would be a great opportunity to ensure I had been given the right advice and also to compare costs so I bit the bullet and booked an appointment with Siobhan. Immediately, I felt comfortable and assured by her supportive, informative and non-judgmental manner. The administrative team for Dr Choy were approachable, easily accessible & knowledgeable from the very beginning. My appointment left me feeling confident, excited and empowered with knowledge. Dr Choy listened intently to my desires and explained my options. I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. I trusted him to make the right choice for me based on my lifestyle. Even right up to the moment before surgery, he still left me with choices. The surgery went surprisingly well and fast and had minimal impact on work and family life with just a few days of recovery followed by some 'take it easy' time. Dr Choy rang me personally the next day to check on my progress which I found comforting. The post-op information was detailed. I must admit that when I took my first 'sneak peek' I was slightly concerned about the larger than expected size however my mind was eased by the Zilver Lining Team. After only 2 weeks, I have been feeling very satisfied with my new breasts with little discomfort. It is difficult to predict the impact of my decision at this early stage but already I feel an increase in self-confidence and self-worth. I feel like I deserve to be happy in my own skin and enjoy my beautiful body that I've worked so hard to achieve. I am excited to be able to wear nice clothes and bikinis in public and can’t wait to go shopping to treat myself. The most important thing for me to remember is that I took this step only for myself, not for my partner or to impress my friends. I made an informed decision not driven by pressure or costs.
