I had no doubt that Dr. Vitenas would make my breast be in proportion with my body. His experience in knowing what size to make me was very comforting. Dr. Vitenas never encouraged me to go bigger, but was more concerned with having them look natural. I had a great experience with the surgery. I took the natural vitamins that Dr. Vitenas recommended and I felt that it helped with the swelling and bruising. Recovery was easy as well. My surgery was on a Friday and by Wednesday of the following week I stopped taking all of my medicine except for the accolate. The swelling went down and my breasts are beautiful. I am very pleased with Dr. Vitenas and his staff, and I”m so glad that I had the breast augmentation.
Of course, I had anxiety before the surgery related to concern with pain and possible negative outcomes. I can honestly say that the only discomfort, which was minor, was getting the IV. The entire surgical procedure was amazingly pain-free and recovery was a breeze. All the staff within Dr. Vitenas’ office and the hospital was warm and supportive. I have complete confidence in all the staff that I came into contact with.
Even if there would have been pain, it would have been so much worth it based on the results. I showed many, many pictures to Dr. Vitenas to demonstrate the type of results I desired. Well, Dr. Vitenas completely got it. He probably would not appreciate my saying this, with managing patient expectations and all, but he exceeded my expectations, which were quite great. In some ways, I look at my breasts and I’m amazed that they are mine. In other ways, I look at them and feel they are what I should have had all my life, particularly since they are so natural looking and fit my frame well. There could be regret in not doing it sooner, but mostly there is joy that I did do it. They look just plain awesome.
As to scars, as I write this, it has been 4 weeks since my surgery and the scars are greatly diminished. I believe that with Dr. Vitenas’ superb skill as a surgeon and with all the great aftercare, that the scars will be minor and not a concern. Even at this point, my husband says that the scars are hardly noticeable.
In addition to a combined mastopexy and breast augmentation, I had labiaplasty. My husband had no complaints in this regard – this is something I did completely for me. After two kids, I wanted to restore the appearance of my vaginal area. I had very little discussion with Dr. Vitenas about the desired outcome, but again, he exceeded my expectations. The outcome is better than when I was 18 years old!
I must warn people considering breast surgery about something that Dr. Vitenas does not mention. After the procedure, clothes will fit so well that you will want to buy everything you try on! Now that I’m up to twelve new negligées, it might be time to stop!!
