Breast Augmentation

I have never been very happy with my breasts. I’ve always felt they were small, deflated and a funny shape, and after breastfeeding two children they were even worse. After contemplating it for a few years, this year I decided to take the plunge and get augmentation surgery. I researched my options extensively and had narrowed it down to two surgeons - after seeing the first one I was quite discouraged as in my 20 minute consult I had been told I could only have small round implants and there was a high chance I would develop a ‘double-bubble’ due to the shape of my natural breasts. Hesitantly I decided to go ahead and have my consult Dr Choy anyway, and I am so so happy that I did. After spending an hour and a half with myself and my husband, Dr Choy told me I had a mild case of tuberous breasts and presented me with several options as to how to correct this and give me the most optimal result. Dr Choy is a friendly, warm and open person who takes the time to get to know his patients and i immediately felt comfortable and knew that I would be going ahead with surgery with him. He takes the time to explain which options are best and why, and also to go through any risks associated with the procedure. At no point during any of my time with Dr Choy did I feel rushed or silly for asking questions. I booked my surgery date before I left the consultation. As I was travelling for surgery I had lots to get organized, and Janie & Siobhan were fantastic in answering my many questions and recommending accommodation. After seeing Dr Choy at his Sydney rooms the day before surgery and again on the morning of my surgery I knew I had made the right choice. Surgery all went perfectly and waking up with new breasts was amazing. Dr Choy came to see me before I left the hospital and gave me his personal contact details should I have any questions or concerns about how everything was healing. He also called the following day before I left to go home to make sure I was feeling ok and to check if I had any questions. Upon arriving home I was in a small amount of pain but it only lasted for a few days and the painkillers I was prescribed were more than enough to make me feel comfortable. I am now 8 weeks post op and have had two follow up appointments with Dr Choy to check how everything is healing and I am more than happy with my results. My scars are unnoticeable and my implants are softening and settling. I feel much more confident and feminine, and I am excited to find new swimmers for summer this year. I would definitely recommend Dr Choy to anyone considering breast augmentation surgery.
