“I am so happy with my new breasts”
Posted on Implantinfo.com:
I feel like screaming this off the rooftops! I had the most incredible recovery from my breast augmentation procedure and I owe it all to my surgeon, Dr. Lowen in Mountain View, California.
Thank you Nicole for this website and for your referral to him! I, of course, had discomfort after surgery and I was stiff, but I kept expecting it to be painful and it wasn’t! I was picked up from the surgery center by a friend, I walked to the car with no problem, no pain, just feeling a little tight in the chest. When I arrived home, I was greeted by my husband and three small children. My husband took a look at me and thought I backed out of the procedure – he couldn’t believe I was walking around feeling no pain. I actually sat and had a cup of tea with him and told him about the whole experience. I slept for most of that day.
The next day, I was back into my routine, holding my six-month-old, cooking, cleaning, taking showers, etc. Dr. Lowen is an incredibly talented surgeon. I had minimal to no swelling, no bruising or bleeding, no drainage tubes, no visible stitches (just surgical tape over the incision – the stitches are self absorbing)- I was able to see my breasts immediately after surgery. I didn’t have to wear any special bras. Yes, I was stiff and moved cautiously the first couple of days – I compare it to the way I felt when my milk came in after the birth of my children – that tight feeling when you get engorged with milk. But let me tell you, breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Lowen was a “cake walk” compared to breast feeding!
I just had my two week post-op appointment and I asked Dr. Lowen why I had no pain – why was my recovery so easy? He showed me some of the state-of-the-art instruments he uses that not many doctors are using now. He tries to be as gentle as possible, trying to minimize any trauma to your breast tissue and chest. Well, what ever he does, it works! After reading all the stories of people’s painful recoveries, I urge you to seek out Dr. Lowen. I would have flown across the United States to see him. Thank you Nicole for the referral and linking me to his website. I will be submitting my whole story with pictures soon. I am so happy with my new breasts – what an ego boost! My husband loves them too!
