Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is something that I have thought about since my teens, when I first started to notice that my breasts were not developing in the way that I expected them to. It was never just about the size, but also the shape. I felt that they were under-developed and for a long time I waited for them to change, thinking maybe in time they would fill out and grow with the rest of my body. My self-esteem was greatly affected for years, from hating my appearance in certain outfits to feeling uncomfortable in intimate situations, I was embarrassed and wanted to hide myself. It took until my mid twenties for me to be sure that this was something I could commit to but once I realised that it was financially within reach for me I decided that I didn't want to waste anymore time feeling unhappy with myself and my body. I came across Dr. Choy through online searches and forums, and after reading many positive reviews decided to book a consultation. Ellis was very thorough in his questioning and took his time to ask me why I wanted this procedure, gently forcing me to think clearly about my desires and expectations. He confirmed that I had a mild tubular breast condition, which accounted for the 'under-developed' shape and appearance of my breasts. I felt much more comfortable in the consultation than I had thought I would and I booked my surgery on the day without hesitation. The process from first consultation through to surgery was very smooth. Ellis understood my desired outcomes and had a very clear strategy as to how he could achieve them. I felt very confident heading into surgery with him and his team, and had a very smooth and comfortable experience. The recovery process has been a period of adjustment. It's not just a physical journey, but a mental and emotional one as well. I am now over 10 weeks post op and every day I am happier with my new breasts. I have so much more confidence and finally feel feminine, balanced and well proportioned. Going through with this procedure has changed one aspect of my life that made me unhappy for a very long time, and I am very grateful to Dr. Choy and his team for making such a big decision and process a very comfortable and easy experience.
