Breast Re-augmentation

London

May 2016

Why did you want a breast re-augmentation?

At the grand old age of 21 I decided to embark on my first and what I thought would be my only breast augmentation. Being really flat chested but still having a bottom, I was completely unbalanced. Clothes would be a 10 on the bottom and a size 6 on top so I really wanted to feel good about myself. Everything went well and even though the surgeon had mentioned they may need to be replaced in the future, 10 years seemed like a life time away.

Fast forward 12 years and after having breastfed my two amazing children, my wonderful pert boobies now resembled sagging sacks. On top of that the left side had started to capsulate so was hardening and uncomfortable.

I thought long and hard about surgery this time as I feel the only person who would really see them were my partner and myself. Was I being vain? Should I just have boobs on my waist like lots of older woman? Am I selfish spending money on myself? I asked my partner who kindly said I looked fine but could understand that the capsulation would only get worse. We also decided that two boys was enough on the baby front so it was probably a good time. I started to look into surgeons but this time I didn’t want a one man band who could shut up shop, I wanted a company with procedures in place to ensure I’d be looked after for a long time to come.

How were your consultations with Glow by MYA?

A friend mentioned my surgeon and I looked into where he worked from. The next day I booked an appointment at Glow by MYA for a consultation. The staff were so friendly and my coordinator Cassandra answered any questions I had and more. She gave me a direct number for herself and I felt confident and reassured that I had chosen a good establishment. She even explained if anything did go wrong with my breasts that there was processes in place where I wouldn’t have to pay and they would revise or deduct money in the case of capsulation. This was something my original surgeon never offered.

Cassandra recommended my surgeon also but gave me the details of other surgeons within the company I could look into. I was adamant that I didn’t want huge bouncy boobs as I liked the size of my 32c but would like them revamped. I met my surgeon and we discussed options. He was very thorough so I had to refer back to my old surgeon and find out sizes and what type of implant were used before my surgeon would ok me for surgery. I was informed exactly what the procedure would involve and exactly how long I would be immobile. I went home and asked my parents if they would mind helping with my boys. They were fantastic and agreed to pick them up, feed, bathe and then drop them to me once my partner was home so they could see me.

How was your pre-op appointment?

I had 2 pre-op appointments with my nurse Emily and she even suggested what bras to buy and explained what would happen before and after the surgery regarding follow up appointments and post-op checks.

I can’t recommend Glow by MYA enough; at no point did I feel intimidated or worried to ask even the silliest of questions. I felt secure with the care I was given and filled with confidence when I walked into their beautiful hospital.

How was the day of your procedure?

The Glow by MYA hospital is amazing and the nurses are second to none. Day and night they cared for me and comforted me. My sister drove me into the hospital in the morning and by 3 o’clock I was ordering lunch. It wasn’t your ordinary hospital food, it was really nice. I ate every bit of my chicken salad and even polished off a brownie for dessert! My surgeon visited me in the morning and explained the surgery went well and how he had to remove a lot of scar tissue from one side so it might seem more swollen. Even leaving was a breeze. I told the nurses what time would be best to leave and they made sure everything was in place for that to happen.

The Results

I now have a pair of even, pert, natural breasts. I couldn’t be happier. Even though my bra size hasn’t changed, I no longer have to winch them up from my waist.

How was your recovery?

If anything, I wish I had stayed in more than one night as day 3 was the most uncomfortable for me. The strong pain killers took the majority of the discomfort away but movement was difficult. Day 5 I felt 70% better – in fact I had to stop myself from wanting to do too much.

I was driven to my post op appointment 7 days after my surgery and have never been so happy to have sticky gaffer tape like material torn from my body. It’s strapping to reduce swelling but is like a big sticky tape and after a week you’re ready to have that thing off. My boobs look squashed but great. Emily fitted my bra and gave me a reminder of do’s and don’t’s when recovering.

Fast forward two weeks and I was concerned that one breast looked larger that the other so I phoned my nurse straight away and she made an appointment to see me that week. This was even though she was sure it was just the swelling at different rates on each breast but she was more than happy to bring me in. Thank goodness is was only just swelling and 6 weeks on I now have a pair of even, pert, natural breasts. I couldn’t be happier. Even though my bra size hasn’t changed, I no longer have to winch them up from my waist.

Would you recommend Glow by MYA?

I can’t recommend Glow by MYA enough; at no point did I feel intimidated or worried to ask even the silliest of questions. I felt secure with the care I was given and filled with confidence when I walked into their beautiful hospital. It’s not an operation to take lightly especially when you have kids and feel guilty about the money and recovery time but I feel I’ve given many years to being a mum so two weeks wasn’t a lot to ask and the results are everything I had hoped for!
