I have visited this office for years and Dr Patronella is exceptional. His entire staff is outstanding. I also visit his aesthetic nurse, Heidi Fell, about twice a year for Botox/Dysport. I cannot say enough good things about her. Privacy is highly important to me, and I have no concerns with this office.

Best decision you will make! - Houston, TX - This was the best decision that I could have made for myself. I always knew I would get a tummy tuck done. What I didn't know was, where and with who. Dr. Patronella & his amazing staff, made me feel like family. The results are beyond what I expected. Dr. Patronella is a miracle worker. I love my abdomen. Thank you Dr. P.

I was older (50s) and very skeptical about elective surgery. However, after raising four kids I wanted to do something for myself. I lost weight and wanted to get rid of the droopy stomach and correct breast assymmetry I had always had. It was very important to me to maintain a natural look. I consulted with other doctors; the cheaper ones were less professional and said things I didn't agree with, the more expensive ones were professional but seemed to be trying to capture only the higher end of the market with clients that will pay top dollar. Dr. Patronella was HIGHLY qualified, very professional, and with reasonable rates for his qualifications. I chose a tummy tuck and breast augmentation/lift to achieve symmetry and I am very happy with the results. I know it is a big decision; I would definitely recommend Dr. Patronella to anyone!

Dr Patronella is such a wonderful, caring and skilled plastic surgeon. His staff members are always so pleasant and helpful.

I do not feel that there are enough words to describe how amazing not only this man is but how great his team is as well. From the moment you schedule a consolation his team has your best interest in mind. When I met with Eva I was terrified at just how all of this would go but she calmed me down and explained what all the procedures I was interested in would involve. After first meeting with Dr Patronella I was instantly comfortable with everything we originally talked about. He gave me realistic hopes for what my body could look like and not empty promises of what at 28 I wanted to hear. Surgery was great (I guess as I was out cold) but once I woke up the real test began. His over night staff ensured I was as comfortable as I could be and the around the clock care still has not stopped 5 weeks later. If I had a question or concern I felt urgent I could call the staff at the Kimberly center and a doctor would call me back to address the issue, and even still any questions I have I can email to Eva and I get an answer back as soon as she can answer it. I wouldn't recommend anyone else especially for a tummy tuck. I have friends who have used other doctors and they look good but when we start talking about if they would do it again they all say no the pain and experience were not good. I would gladly do all this again because my pain was managed well and my results although it's still early are already absolutely amazing. I spent my late teens and twenties having babies and trying to get back into shape and couldn't thank Dr Patronella and his staff enough for giving me the chance to enjoy my thirties able to wear whatever I like and know it's going to look good!

44 Yo, with Bilateral Incapsulated Gel Implants. Implant Revision Done. 5'8", 180#, Athletic Build. - Houston, TX - Dr Patronella is a talented surgeon with an eye for the female body. He is able to look at your body and see where the curves should be, able to see how the curves have changed due to weight gain/loss, child birth, or maybe you just never had it to begin with.... Or the dreadful thing called effects of aging. He make eye contact with you. Talks WITH you, not AT you. Answers concerns truthfully, not just what you want to hear. His asst Ava is a doll. She is sweet and very helpful, also a wealth of information. He supplies you with your garment for aftercare.

Review from M. - Source: Google - Feb 07, 2016
My background: I am a 62 year old healthy woman, have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. When I was 5 years old I had a surgical procedure for my kidneys. The incision was vertical just below my naval. So when I had my 3 children, I had to have 3 C-Sections and these incisions were again vertically below my belly button. What this meant was my abdominal muscles had been cut 4 different times and no matter how much I would diet or exercise, my stomach muscles just wouldn?t firm up. They had no support and my stomach just pooched out with a very noticeable, wide scar. My research: My goal was to find a plastic surgeon who was known for his expert in tummy tuck procedures. Of course, I began my research on the internet, read reviews, as well as ask friends for referrals. It seemed that Dr. Petronella?s name kept coming up during this research. My own daughter had a wonderful experience with Dr. Petronella a few years ago, as well as a couple of close friends of mine. My first appointment: At my first appointment I was given a very warm welcome by everyone that I came in contact. They made me feel extremely comfortable about my visit discussing everything on my wish list?. Eva, the office manager, was particularly helpful in helping me decide what my procedure should include, along with Dr. Petronella. My day of surgery: My surgery day was all very professional. Dr. Petronella only uses board certified anesthesiologist, which is quite exceptional. Since I work in the surgery at another hospital, I know how important it is to have a board certified anesthesiologist rather than a CRNA. My surgery went perfectly and my recovery again was very professional, but caring. Post-operative: The staff gave me very detailed instructions to follow during my post-operative period. A Registered nurse visited me at home the following day to check my incisions, drainage tubes and reinforcing the cleansing of the surgical sites. She also went back over my medications that were prescribed to me to make sure that I fully understood how they should be taken. I took 2 weeks off to recover from my surgery and was ready to return to work after the time was up. Recovery and follow up: My recovery was very unremarkable, not even one negative experience during this time. Part of Dr. Petronella's professional fee includes all follow up visits, which I had at 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and again at 2 years. This is very impressive to me, that he wants to make sure that my recovery of my surgery sites are to my, as well as his satisfaction, at no extra charge. It has now been a year and 3 months since my surgery and I am extremely pleased with my tummy tuck and liposuction. A few months ago I joined a fitness gym, so I can enhance what he has done for me. My ugly scar is gone and my tummy is flat! For a 62 year old woman, I looked pretty darn good and am very happy!

This fall I had breast augmentation surgery done by Dr. Patronella. I went from an A cup to a C cup. I am extremely pleased with the results. My scars are small and clean. The implants have settled well and look natural and even. Dr. Patronella and his staff were amazing through the whole process. When my husband and I attended the consult they were patient and answered all the questions we had. I never felt rushed, uncomfortable or pressured. They were so understanding and professional the day of surgery they completely put me at ease. My recovery and pain was minimal! Of course there was pressure and soarness but I was shocked at how little pain I had. I fully believe it is because Dr. Patronella is so skilled at what he does. Highly recommended him! If you are like me, it took years to finally decided to do this. I am so glad I did and it was much easier than I ever expected. I believe it was because of Dr. Patronella and his team!

I am 45 years old, have two children via C-section. Those of you who have had a C-Section knows that the muscle below your abdomen when cut while doing a C-Section, will never be the same. In time your skin will start to sag and no matter how many sit ups you do, it will always sag. So, I was referred to Dr. Patronella by a friend of mine. His bedside manner is impeccable and doesn't make you feel uncomfortable at all. After my consult I decided to have him perform the True Form Tummy Tuck, Liposuction in the Lower Abdomen & Flanks, Fat Grafting in the Buttocks & Lateral Gluteal, Buttock Lift, Breast Augmentation in both breasts w/ silicone gel and a Lift in the Left Breast. I am beyond thrilled with the results. I am on my 7th week post op and I feel and look great! My confidence level has increased, my clothes fit better & I no longer have a pooch (or a pouch). Adjusting to the recovery was tough the first couple of days, but Dr. Patronella's staff was always there to help me with any questions I had. They are the best! I look fantastic thanks to Dr. Patronella! I would recommend to any woman (or man) if you are looking for a change and are looking into plastic surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Patronella. He's the best!

I am so excited about having a face and neck lift next month. I am happy that Eva was able to accommodate me as December is the only time I could have done it and would not let anybody other than Dr. Patronella do such a delicate procedure on my face since he is the best! I know this because he has done two others on me in the past that held up very well but it is time for a fresh new look!

After losing 120 lbs it was easy to see that the excess skin I had around my abdominal area was a real depressing sight. Even though I worked out 5 days a week and hired a trainer to guide me through working on my target areas; the vision I had for myself required the expertice of someone that could get me to the end of my healthier life style transformation. I chose Dr. Patronella based solely on his work and his patient's reviews. His name is known not only around the big H-town, but, down to the coast line and up towards The woodlands and beyond. To say I'm pleased doesn't describe how much I love what I see in the mirror. From my very consultation, when Dr. P intently listened to me and what I wanted to achieve; to guiding me through my after surgery healing process; he has been the best partner to include on my journey to a better me! Dr. P sculpted my body just the way I always imagined it looking and now I smile at the reflection in the mirror. My transformation includes Dr. P's signature through his amazing work, like an artist signing his masterpiece.

I had two procedures done by Dr. Patronella, and couldn't be more pleased with him and his staff. I also feel like adding that I noticed he received two "one" star reviews. One left no comment...the other was complaining about the cost of the consultation. Why give a one star review because you're not happy with a fee? He and his staff take a lot of time with you on your consultation, and my consult fee went to the procedure.

I have been thinking about a tummy tuck after having two C-sections for 15 years. I also had been thinking about a lift on one of my breasts and having slightly larger breasts. I think as a I get older, my body will have more sagging skin and my breast will start point more south. I decided to go see Dr. Patronella because 15 years ago I was referred to him by a nurse friend of mine who had breast augmentation performed by him. I trusted her opinion and went to see him for breast augmentation only. I decided against it at that time. Now, I'm ready. I'm ready to enjoy my body while I'm young and can enjoy it for many years to come. It?s now or never.. Also, I feel very comfortable around Dr. Patronella and his staff. Eva is great too 🙂 She also put my mind at ease and helped me with answering my questions. Anyone who asks me who they should go see if they were considering plastic surgery, I always tell them to go see Dr. Patronella 🙂

Heidi takes the time to explain the effects and process of whatever it is I ask her about. She is very professional but yet friendly and always asks me about "my mom" since she recently had a stroke.

Three years ago I began my journey to a healthier me, I was 265lbs, unhealthy, and undernourished. I have always struggled with weight and after giving birth to my two beautiful children, who are 16 and 10, I was morbidly obese and a size 22 or 3XL. Through education, healthy eating, and exercise, I lost 115lbs. It wasn't a sprint or a quick fix, I decided that this was going to be a lifestyle change. After losing the weight, I was left with sagging skin, a constant reminder of where I was and the person that I lost literally. After all my hard work, I still was haunted by the past every time I looked in the mirror, so I began considering plastic surgery. As a nurse, this wasn't an easy decision and not one I took lightly as I approach any surgery with its risks and benefits. I researched different surgeons and procedures for a year prior to this decision and selected Dr. Patronella. After the consultation in his office, I knew that this was the place for me. He was honest, professional, and gave me a realistic approach on what we could do. I had a True Form tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation, buttock lift, and lipo to hips and outer thighs. I am now one year post op and consider Dr. Patronella and his staff like family. They were there for me every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better experience or a better result. I am so excited with my new body, my hard work finally shows. I have a six pack!!! I am now a size 6!!!! Because of my newfound confidence, I now have doors opening for me that I never would have imagined at 36. I am doing modeling part time with most photographers thinking I'm 10 years younger than I am. My results are amazing and nothing short of pure genius!!! My future is even more exciting as I have decided that I will begin training for a bikini competition and competing in the next 6 months. Thank You!!! I am forever grateful to You!!!!!

I have been a nurse for over 25 years, we are truly very particular and picky when choosing a medical provider. LOVE Dr. Patronella. Over 2 years ago I had a tummy tuck and liposuction. I still look amazing and I LOVE my results. Dr. Patronella is a genius/sculptor. His dedication to his patient's is shown by the detailed information throughout the entire process - before, day of and post surgery. Following the surgical procedures a registered nurse comes to your home for a few days to check/monitor recovery; healing massages are included in the post surgical recovery process. The best decision of my life, the best money I ever spent!!!!

I have never been pleased with the appearance of my breasts and after having gained and lost weight, and giving birth, my breasts were shapeless. After researching online and talking to friends and family, I had consultations with 4 different doctors before I chose Dr. Patronella. He seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced and gave the best advice. I wanted to simply fill in the volume and he did just that. I have to say, they are perfect and the perfect size and everyone that sees them describes them with one word...."perfect"! He and his staff are amazing and I couldn't be more pleased! Now all I need is a tummy tuck 😉

Dr. Patronella performed a facelift and an eyelift for me in 2014 and I could not be happier with the results. My wife says that I look ten years younger than my current age of 58. I feel younger because when I look in the mirror, I see a younger guy looking back. Throughout the process, Dr. Patronella and his staff were very professional and re-assuring. Before the procedure, they provide you with a packette that explains what can be expected after the procedure. The part about the first several days after the procedure turned out to be very accurate as it's a little tough, although worth it in the end.

Very kind, good listener, bed side manners are top notch, he is the best and knows how the female body should curve. His staff follows in his suit. All my questions were answered at pre and post op. I am out of state and currently ph/email is how we communicate. They all made me feel like family. I feel I got the most bang for my buck. Loads of garments given, lots of medical supplies given, info on every week post surgery. I only had to purchase wipes, and antibacterial soap. Everything else was part of my pkg. Including the nurse home visit the day after my release from surgery center. I highly recommend you opt for the surgery center overnight. The nurses were amazing.

20 Year Old: Best Life Decision/Feel Alive - Houston, TX - I'm going to 100% honest with who ever ends up reading this, from the pros to the cons.First off here a background of my situation:I am 20, i play college football and have had "man boobs" since i was 10. This is something 10 years of working out never fixed, i tried and when i tried to burn "fat" from my pecks it actually increased because my muscle size grow but the breast tissue continued outward with it. Anyways i finally saved up enough money to get this procedure done. Im not going to lie i was nervous to have them lipo plus make an incision to remove breast tissue. I decided to watch a video on youtube on how it was preformed, it made me want to just live with man boobs instead, but after learning about it i figured it would take two hours to give me back my man hood, which i honestly never had and that it would be worth it. Man was i right, since the surgery i have been able to wear what ever shirt i want without a undershirt, i feel like a man and every time i look down i see a defined athletic chest not a women chest! I can be harsh about my old me now because its exactly that the old me. Ill let you look at my pictures and you decide if its for youIf you have any questions ask em and ill tell you how it was for me. Heres some things to expect, you will have a bunch of drainage, nasty blood and liquids, swelling for 1-2 weeks after that makes you think you didn't even have surgery, the wrap and compression suit is annoying and itchy. But at 4 weeks i started working out and i had/have scar tissue, they say it takes 6months to a year to fully go away. I have "puncture" scars but hard to tell from a distance up close it looks like scars from acne but i haven't had anyone ask yet. Overall best investment i have ever made. Very confident know and happy, i have about 100 shirts i wear now that i have been given and could never wear.

It took me about 5 years to finally decide to have my tummy repair. I was always scared knowing it was a big surgery, and having 2 kids to care for, was complicated to arrange everything. After researching all over the web. for several month, I finally decided to have an appointment with Dr. Patronella, he was the Dr. that kept appearing as "THE BEST" for body contouring and tummy tucks. The day I met him, he made me fell so at ease with the whole thing,he took the time to explain every single question I had, and boy did I have questions!!!...His patient coordinator was so attentive to my needs and also took every single phone call I made with another handful of questions, the next couple of weeks.

Dr. Patronella's skill is only surpassed by his caring attitude towards his patients.

Sure enough, my incision has faded as he said it would and now, with my flat tummy, I look great in my jeans!

Loving my Tummy Tuck! - Houston, TX - My Dr. gets a 5-star because he was honest about what he could do for me and his work lived up to it. His office staff is very professional and appear to be well trained in customer services and communication amongst each other throught the different departments, i.e., surgery education, nursing, appointments, payments, etc.My Dr. was referred to me by other women who had surgeries with him. Over the period of about a year and a half, I heard the stories of 4 or 5 different women who had surgery with my Dr. or one of his partners. All of their stories had positive outcomes and they looked great!

Abdominalplasty and Liposuction. Would I Do It Again? And Who Would I Pick? - Houston, TX - As for me, I believe it was worth it. I had the VERY BEST DOCTOR and if I were to choose again, it would be him. I was supplemented with vitamins and supplements prior to the surgery (and to be continued after surgery to speed up the healing process). I was cared for well throughout my surgery. I stayed overnight at the surgical facility with good nursing staff. Part of my doctor's "after surgery package", is to provide his patient with a homehealth visit by a nurse (who was very skilled and attentive). Furthermore, I continue to follow up in clinic with him. (Again I am less than 2 weeks after having had surgery done).As a physician, I was looking for a physician who had it all: excellent bedside manners, great skills, great personality; and Dr. Patronella has it all.

Dr. P and his staff was everything and more that friend said they were. I am very pleased and so happy that I made that first appointment! I found Dr. P as a result of needing a revision surgery from another doctor. His bedside manner is wonderful and his honesty is greatly appreciated.

I was very reluctant and concerned, however Dr. P was there for me emotionally, was able to calm my fears and help me face this minor set back head on.

He's the best in breast augmentation, for sure! After ten of my friends went to him and their breasts were all beautiful, I decided to choose him also. I'm so happy with the results and when I told him I thought maybe I should go bigger (325cc), Dr. P. was honest and said he thought for my body frame (5'6", 120lbs), that 275cc's would be perfect. I ended up going from a B to a full C/small D and they are PERFECT. You've got to love a doctor who knows what's best and won't let you make a stupid decision. He answers any questions you have during the appts..and his assistant Eva is wonderful. After your surgery, they send a nurse out to your home the next day to teach you how to massage properly and to unwrap you. I was able to drive and run errands in four days! Granted, you will need the pain pills for the first few days (just soreness as I went under the muscle, not really pain) but by the 4th one, I was good without. Dr. P is recommended for breast augmentation- the best!

1 yr 2.5 months post tummy tuck - Houston, TX - I'm 5' 5", 130 lbs, 2 children both by C-section. Same story as most. My first pregnancy gave me stretch marks and a really ugly stretch mark where my belly button piercing was. After my first baby I lost all the weight plus 10 lbs and my stretch marks were so light and my belly was flat. I can wear a bikini again right? Nope, because of my belly button a bikini was out. My second pregnancy I gained the exact amount of weight as the last, 47 lbs, but this time it was all in my belly not everywhere like the last one. I still have not got back down to 125 lbs and I could tell right away that I was never going to have a flat stomach again. That was 3 years ago.I felt so happy and confident after my first child even with my stretch marks. I have never been confident. I was very happy. The second pregnancy was tough and I have struggled the last 3 years to just feel like myself again, mentally and physically. I finally gave in and got on wellbutrin and I am feeling normal again.My husband backs me up 100% on this decision he has been telling me since last year that we can do this whenever I want. Just go for it. I have held off though and I'm glad I did because after a year and half of researching doctors I am positive I found the ONE. His tummy tucks looks natural with curves and a realistic looking bellybutton. I was really worried about having a long scar but I think he is going to put it so low that it wont even matter. Especially if it heals the way my last c-section did, its almost invisible.Anyway, I'll put up my before pictures and in 11 days I'll be on the flat side, as they say. I'll try to update ASAP but I don't know when ill be able to get to the computer to put up pictures. ( so annoying that you cant post from a device!)Also I just want to say thank you to the girls with the same doctor that have posted there pictures and experience on here. It has been a huge comfort and very reassuring. I'm actually for the first time excited, instead of nervous, scared and feeling guilty.Oh and a few months ago a bartender (female) at a place we like to hang out, when we get a rare chance, asked if I had another bun in the oven. Yeah I'm ordering a drink but I'm pregnant!!!!! I had just lost 15 lbs too. 🙁 Ugh spent the whole night holding my stomach in. Every time I feel like I shouldn't do this I think of that.

33 Years Old, 3 Kids, Tired of Looking Pregnant. Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair - Houston, TX - Busy mom of 3. Ages 4, 2, and 8 months. First pregnancy I gained 75 pounds. My baby was 10 pounds 12 ounces. That seperated my stomach muscles. The next 2 pregnancies were supported by my skin. The after math is a protruding abdomen that looks 4 months pregnant. I literally get asked every couple weeks if I am expecting. Even wearing 2 spanx and not having a bite to eat I still get asked if I am pregnant! My breast are deflated with no upper volume. I have what I call "bottom boobs." I nursed all 3 of my kids 6 months and they all preferred one side making me disproportionate. I am 5 ft 2 in and I am at my prepregnancy weight of 128. I would like to loose a few more pounds before surgery but that date is creeping up quick! I am a nurse, on my feet a lot so working out has been a challenge as I am so tired when I'm finally done with 12hr shift that often turns to 14 hours. I don't eat terrible but I could def improve. It's hard to feel motivated because no amount of exercise improved the way I look. I am very ready to feel and look normal again!! I just don't want to look pregnant!! I'll post pics once I'm closer to my surgery date which is only a few weeks away.

Finally Decided to Take the Plunge at 58! Houston, TX - My stomach has been bothering me for about 5 yrs. It got worse after menopause, then I have a back injury and couldn't exercise for almost a year, so now I've decided to go ahead and have a TT and some lipo. I won't lie, I'm really nervous about it. I am going to a dr. that is 12 hours away and that also makes me nervous, because #1 I'm so far away if any problems come up and #2 we have to drive back 2 weeks after the surgery, and will have to stop often so I can walk to keep any blood clots from forming. My age makes me a little nervous too. I'm healthy though and not overweight, and believe I'm a good candidate for the surgery. I won't see the dr until the day before the surgery. Anyone else decide to do this at this advanced age?

I did it!!! Finally in boobieville! 260 cc HP silicone! - Hey ladies! ive been browsing these boards for a while now and ive decided to make an account and share my experience. so far, i have a consultation with my PS scheduled for april the 22nd. i am very excited, nervous and kinda scared. just this past month is when i really started to get serious about this whole breast augmentation thing. ive always known i wanted boobies, but i kept telling myself they would grow bigger bc other ppl in my family have fairly large breasts asside from my mom who has a cup size bigger than me. right now the only ppl that know about my decision is my mom, fiancee, and afew close friends. everyone is rly supportive except for my mom bc shes not a fan of "something foreign being in your body". i told her ive done extensive research and all in all "im gonna do what i want" hahah. right now im a 32A/ maybe B in some bras. i do like the shape of them and i like how bouncy they are, but frankly im tired of wearing padded bras. im only 5 foot and about 95 pounds. ppl say i look like im 16 when im really 23. :/ and having no boobs definitley doesnt help my case lol.im thinking i want to be a full B or small C. i still want to look natural not OMG THAT GIRL GOT A BOOB JOB look. like every other girl wanting breast augmentation, i just want to feel sexy, more womanly, and more confident. and damnit, if bigger boobs will get me there, ill do it. ;Dtheres not too many ppl i can talk to about this too, so ill need everyones support! my fiancee is supportive, but he says he loves me for how i am ya ya... he just says if it makes me happy then do it.

Definitely Worth Doing!! - You can read my background under the SmartLipo review.Because I was so thin and athletic, I had pitifully small breasts. Nobody ever complained, but I felt like my clothes didn't fit properly and hated bikini season (even though the rest of me looked great, I always had to use a padded top). In June 2004, between job changes and interstate moves, I decided to finally have this done. I had spent several weeks researching saline implants, lived on the message boards and asked questions, then researched the various surgeons in Texas who could do it. I chose mine based on his before and after photos, and I'm glad I did. You really need to see the work that person has performed in the past and remember that NOBODY ever gives a bad reference in their resume (even you readers). If the doc's before and after photos don't look so hot, remember that those were their BEST results!!CONSULTATION: I sent photos and background info via email to the surgeon I chose in Houston. We had a telephone conference as well to get on the same sheet of music regarding my expectations. I flew in and had the procedure done the next morning after a brief in-person consultation to confirm. During this consultation he took "before" photos and had me try on different implant sizes. I brought a sweater and a workout top to try with the implants during this "fitting" to see how each one looks in a different type of top. I liked the look of the 325s, but I FORGOT one important thing!! In my excitement I forgot to ADD 25-50 ccs to the implant size that looked good at the fitting! This is important when you go submuscular (under the muscle) because you lose about that much volume with the implant getting squished under the muscle. So they don't look the way they did at the fitting but they are a LOT larger than before!THE PROCEDURE: I had general anesthesia for the surgery. I only remember them giving me something "to relax" right before, then I was on the table and I remember someone joking about using 500s. Next thing I remember I was waking up post-op. Mine were Mentor 325s overfilled to approx. 345 cc. Honestly, they discharged me too soon because I still had the shakes from the anesthesia. My chest was wrapped in an ACE bandage with my new LARGER sports bra over it. There was tape over my incision sites. When I got to my hotel room (luckily someone was there to drive me) I passed out from too much anesthesia still in my system. The pain meds made me nauseated, so I had to take Zofran (prescription) to keep from vomiting. I was really jazzed up with excitement about having it done, and had a hard time sleeping that first night.POST OP DAY 1: A nurse came to my hotel room to take the ace bandage off and show me how to massage. She stressed that I need to massage DAILY to keep the implants from hardening (from scar tissue) and that I needed to keep wearing a sports bra for a couple of weeks. She checked my incision sites (a single 1.25" long incision in the crease under each) and said I was good to fly home the next day. I went shopping immediately!! I also went to dinner with a friend of mine that evening.POST OP DAY 2: I flew home but still had a 1.5 hour drive to make. By the time I got home I was swelled up like a vienna sausage and in a lot of pain. I took my pain meds (hydrocodone) and crashed. POST OP DAYS 3-5: I had significant abdominal swelling. In reality the fluid was supposed to be going to my chest area but you know how gravity works! I had to take a lower dose pain med because the hydrocodone was making me sick. I was supposed to avoid carrying anything heavier than 5 pounds for the next few weeks, but unfortunately I had a house-hunting trip that weekend in another state and so I broke that rule. THAT WAS A MISTAKE. See my notes for the reason.POST OP MONTHS 1-4: I had my stitches out by another doc (local for me) after about 10 days, everything looked good. I wore a sports bra for three weeks before transitioning into a regular one. It really takes months for these things to settle into position, no joke. After the first month things look decent, but you are still settling. Massage is critical, I believe. And even though you look like you don't need to wear a bra, WEAR ONE. It helps. I remember I could feel my new boobs pulling on my NECK skin, of all things! THE REST OF THE STORY: Overall this was probably the single best investment I made. It was a great confidence booster, and you just can't beat the new wardrobe that became essential post-op! The profile you see in my profile photo is exaggerated due to the pose I had to assume for the Figure competition, but it gets the point across. I am four years out and everything is fine with the exception of the possibility of a redo due to nerve entrapment. When I was lifting those suitcases (and later, the boxes when moving) and breaking the "nothing over 5 pounds" rule, it appears I screwed up and injured myself and had additional scar tissue interfere with a nerve in the area just under my left breast, very close to the incision site. For three years I couldn't bench press because of it, and to this day if I press that one pea-sized spot it will drop me like a water buffalo. The doc also suggested a redo to silicone gel because when my body fat drops below 12% I get rippling pretty bad all around the underside. We'll see.NOTES AND SUGGESTIONS: Research the surgeons thoroughly, and pay attention to the photos! To approximate what the implant will look like, buy the bra size you think you want to fill and use a baggie filled with rice (trick I learned on the message board). No ibuprofen or similar drugs for 2 weeks prior to surgery to minimize bleeding. Show the surgeon photos of what you like / don't like to give him or her a clear understanding of your goals. HAVE REASONABLE GOALS! Too big is obviously fake, unless that's what you want for the next few decades. I went from an A to a large C / small D, which was borderline. The bigger you go, the more you will feel the effects of this mass on your chest (and yes they WILL sag over time, mine have dropped about half an inch in four years). That said, if you go submuscular to get the look you like when trying on implants you need to increase that size about 50ccs. MASSAGE these babies daily for like at least three to four months if you want them to look and feel more natural and to help avoid a redo due to capsulized implants. Wear the sports bra, the time does pass. DO NOT LIFT ANYTHING HEAVIER THAN 5 POUNDS for the first few weeks, or whatever time frame your provider suggests. They are not kidding. I was lucky that all I had was a trapped nerve. I could have bled out. By the way, I've noticed when I'm in a cold place (skiing in Colorado, on a river in Alaska, etc) my implants feel like ice bags under my skin. Makes me get cold easier, so I just wear an extra layer (like a down vest) to help minimize the effect.Most importantly, ENJOY them! : )
