Patient Stories | Breast Augmentation
Since I was young enough to understand that every woman develops differently as we grow up, I quickly realized that my body type was not going to be like anyone else’s, and that I am my own individual self. I was always an athlete and avid runner and felt that my chest was slowly disappearing. I have always felt that my “top half” didn’t match my “bottom half.” I have a lot of control over how my body can gain or lose weight (in most cases), but staying consistently womanly up top was never something I could control. I knew I always wanted a breast augmentation, but was never really serious until it hit me that “Hey, why not? Now is as good of a time as any!” I don’t have any kids (yet) and felt that I was finally at a place in my life where I was just simply ready.
The Right Step
I decided to make an appointment to meet with Dr. Pramit Malhotra for a consult, and right from the beginning, I felt comfortable. I was welcomed as a friend, not as a stranger. The consultation was very thorough, informative, and professional, yet so very personable. Dr. Malhotra knows what he is talking about! He talked to me in great detail about the different types of implants. I loved deciding on a size with Tammy, the care coordinator, and seeing what I would look like with such a womanly figure that balanced me out!
The Big Day
The surgery center was amazing! Surgery is not always a comforting word, but I can say that I was so comfortable and at ease with everyone, from the registration desk to the nurse, from talking with Dr. Malhotra before surgery to the nurse anesthetist and even the anesthesiologist. They were so kind and gentle! Recovery was also fantastic. They catered to my every need and fully walked me through how to manage my pain and aftercare once I left. Dr. Malhotra even came out and checked on how I was doing, talked with my mom (who was my driver for the day), and told me to give him a call if I needed anything. It was all so great!
Now, a little over a month after, I feel great! Every time I look in the mirror, I feel womanly, confident, and quite frankly… sexy! I am so glad I made the decision to do this and do it for ME. I am extremely pleased with the size of implants I chose, as they are still perfect for running and exercising! I made this decision on my own for the sole purpose of making myself feel great! I am more confident than ever and am so happy with my choice of having Dr. Malhotra do my breast augmentation! Cheers to bikini season!
I am so in love with my body! What I am more in love with, though, is my confidence.
