This is the second post from one of our patients who kept a journal documenting her Breast Augmentation surgery and recovery. In this post, she talks about the day of her Breast Augmentation procedure in Peabody, MA.
I arrived at the Peabody Office on time. It made me feel comfortable that my surgery would be performed in the same office I had my other appointments in. The nurse came out to greet me and brought me back to the pre-op area to change. I was given a nice warm blanked and I began to settle in. The anesthesiologist came out to go over what would happen next. Everyone had such a calm and reassuring manner that I did not feel nervous at all.
I woke up very comfortably, because Dr. Adams explained to me he uses a long acting local anesthetic at the end of the operation. After a little while the nurse brought me toast and something to drink. My husband arrived shortly thereafter and we went over the post-op instructions with him and wheeled me out to the car. When I got home that afternoon I had something to eat, took my pain medicine, and relaxed. I did begin to feel some soreness but I put a bag of frozen peas on my chest which made me much more comfortable.
