I went to Dr Schaffer for my initial consultation for breast augmentation. Because of pregnancies, breastfeeding and age my breast were deflated and saggy. Dr Schaffer told me because of the slight sagging, I possibly may not be completely happy with just the aug because my nipples would not be centered causing my breast to be large- but not look their best. I asked for his thoughts on incisions and procedures. Dr Schaffer gave me great options. I was also a little uncertain of my size and saline vs silicone. Dr Schaffer told me i would enjoy the silicone better because my breasts were very small and not much tissue to work with. I would feel the saline implants and possibly have rippling. I loved the fact that Dr Schaffer NEVER made me feel rushed, answered all my questions (I had a huge list) gave me honest answers not just ones i wanted to hear, gave great options and was able to guide me on my decision to have the best results. I had a periareolar lift and breast augmentation. Went from a deflated 34A to a perky 34DD. The day of surgery, my wait was long, but I had my iPad and a book. Phillip (anesthesia), Blake (scrub tech) Tara (anesthesia) and my nurse were all great! They really made me feel comfortable and were informative- super great team! After surgery I did not have hardly really any pain, I felt tight ( like breast feeding engorgement) and tightness between my shoulders. I took the pain medication and muscle relaxer as directed- it took care of any discomfort. I actually only took my pain meds for 2 days then switched to extra strength Tylenol. I did take the muscle relaxer at bedtime for 8 days post-op. I had minimal swelling for the first week and a tiny amount of bruising just under my breast. My silicone implants are 500cc mentor moderate-high profile. My nipples are perky and beautifully centered. My implants feel like natural breasts. I am 3 weeks po-op, had my check up so got to see my incisions- they are perfect!! The incisions are small, clean, beautifully done. They are barely noticeable and i feel certain in the next couple months they will blend in with the natural folds of the areola. I am totally in love with my new look. I give Dr Schaffer and his team 5 stars. I will use him for my next procedure. :)
